For many, faith has always been a mystery. Beloved, faith was never mystery! When a person understands when the Lord wants to give the blessing, and she uses this understanding, pleading his cause, she spends being a successful person!
This can happen to you when you understand how receiving the blessings of God and establish this understanding. At the moment you have this understanding and determining that happen in your life, your health will be restored and other blessings be achieved.
It would be nice before we began this study, you put aside for a few minutes, all the knowledge he obtained during his life on the faith issue. In an unprejudiced attitude, examine the Scriptures with me as you were starting your walk on this subject. Put aside, for now, all you got on faith, and at the end of this study, you consider the good, discard the old baggage. But the study-mos, you regard it as ineffective or of little value, disregard it, and then practice what you have practiced living as has lived.
All people have some religious teaching! If we try to mix that we deal here with what we have learned, will complicate and will not yield the necessary effect that this understanding is proposed. So, I ask you by the end of this study, leave aside for now, what we have learned about faith. For what we study here is something new, stop practicing the faith of luck, to practice real faith. There will be many new things in this study you will discover!
But what is the faith of luck? Faith is the lucky one that many practice: "I am in need of a blessing, then, I will pray to GOD. He is blessing me, surrender to Him thanks, otherwise, do not have problems, I know how to solve: I go to the doctor, seek a loan, etc. "This is the sort of faith that many have practiced.
In this study, we will learn: What is to believe in GOD? How to face difficult situations and come out winners? How have and enjoy all that JESUS CHRIST bought for the price of blood?
Self-worth - is necessary, first of all, you have a self-appreciation. It is taught in many religions that are worthless to God and that we are miserable beings without the slightest expression before Him.
Look! All believe that Jesus Christ paid the price for self rescue. What is true! But if the price paid was so high, is because we have some value to God. Therefore do not pay so much for so little, does not it?
So while you think that, because of skin color, culture, gender, financial status, or appearance. For these or other reasons you consider inferior to other people, never live well! You have to understand that no matter the color of their skin or their culture to GOD. What matters to you is the Lord recognizing its value to you and He is the image and likeness of Him: "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and rule over the fish of the sea, and the birds of the air and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that moves on the earth. "(Genesis 1: 26)
If anyone has the right to live well, healthy and prosper in everything in life, it's you! But while you do not believe the Word of God, will have a life of suffering, a situation that the Lord never dreamed for their children. "The thief comes only to steal and kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and have it abundantly." (John 10: 10)
What is determination? - "And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." (John 14: 13) According to scholars of the Greek language, the word "ask" that John ministered, was the verb "aiteó "which obviously means" ask ", but not the way we understand, as begging for example. The verb "aiteó" also has another meaning as "fixed." So this here our first lesson! Us that we are born again in Christ, we need not ask beseeching God, the blessing that is already ours. Yes we must "determine and establish", ie take possession of what was promised to us! Logical that after we learn, through His Word, that certain blessing is ours. "Search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." (John 5: 39)
The LORD JESUS said! "And whatever you ask in my name I will do it." (John 14: 13) I believe that you know or met people who asked many blessings to God, but were not answered. Maybe you're one of those people. So I invite you to the end of this study "put into practice what you learn here." For when the Lord in the revelation of also of His blessing. The HOLY SPIRIT will confirm in his own heart! When you learn and confirm that the Holy Spirit is the truth, do not be equating join or awaiting further revelations to act, because we are studying on how to take possession of the blessings of God through faith in His Word. Learned, and the HOLY SPIRIT confirmed in your heart, take immediate possession.
"So we need to pray to God asking begging healing, prosperity, victory over temptation. What should I do then? "You must" determine "and demand that evil out of your life. You have to figure out what not to do anything, except, take in Christ, the authority, the power and the blessing that belongs to him.
You who are suffering, crying, desperate, hits a size, then hit the other and everything is closed. Beloved chord, lift your head and see things as they really are. For the time you act in faith and send the evil away, he will have to leave.
What is to determine? - Determine is to mark time, fix, prescribe, order, establish, is to decree and decide.
What is mark time? - Mark time is when you get the revelation of the Word of God, demanding that the evil go away, is to define what life wants, is to prescribe, order is, after learning from the Word of God, that this blessing is yours . But while not resist its action, evil will continue in your life. "Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you." (James 4: 7)
How many people are suffering all the time, does not it? Pray, supplicate, ask GOD that heal, resolve their problems, save sinners, etc. But, do not know that in fact it is the Lord who has been all along knotted arms waiting for them in an attitude of faith, "determine" that He may confirm His works and carry them through. "Verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater works than these, because I go unto my Father." (John 14: 12)
Is that what's happening with you? You run to one side, runs to the other, I asked, begs, but it seems that this God or is deaf-blind. Of course it is not! The Lord can not bless as you do not open the way for him to operate. "Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight." (Luke 3: 4) has to prepare the way for God to operate.
The simplicity of the work of God - To many, because it seems so simple, they do not believe it to be that way. Beloved, the determination is faster and safer way to achieve the blessings of God. When we begin to act according to His Gospel, not only obey the Lord, but we learned that no matter how simple it may seem, it works.
The LORD has done nothing complicated! Men is complicating what they do and also try to complicate the work of God. In fact, the Lord intended it to spiritual things were so easy, that even children, people with mental retardation or with the hard reasoning, could also receive their blessings.
In fact, I advise you, when someone comes wanting to complicate things of God, to those nebulous and mysterious conversations, I advise to refuse them all. Beloved, if God is, put this in your head, "is simple and uncomplicated," is how the ministry of Jesus. When the Lord Jesus was here on earth, He opened His mouth in simplicity so great that people, when they heard these Eternal Truths, thought they could not come from God, but to accept. Theologians and scholars of Jerusalem not, is that they thought they knew the truth. Beloved, let's just stay with the truth of JESUS. "Jesus said to him: I am the way and the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14: 6)
A challenge - When you determine the name of Jesus can rest assured that your order will not fail. JESUS said! "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away." (Matthew 24: 35) So you can be sure, if you determine the name of Jesus, the power of God into action, unless you remove his word. But if you keep believing, by faith, that the work has already been done, certainly will.
When we act on the Word of God, we can be sure of victory, but only when we act on His Word. When a person acts on the word of religion or theologians, certainly will not have that certainty that only the Word of the Lord assures us.
As difficult as the situation may appear and people around us discouraged us, saying: "It's no use, it will not work." Not embark on this faith! Because it will surely sink. "Keeping the faith and good conscience, which some rejecting have made shipwreck of the faith." (1 Timothy 1: 19) But when we use the faith in the Word of God and the statement we released what we believe, surely we will get what we declare.
Rest in the LORD - After we determined, we can rest in the faithfulness of the Lord, even if symptoms remain and everything seems we can not vouch for that. At this time, it is very important to rest in the faithfulness of the Lord, even though everything seems that our order over evil was not obeyed. Therefore we are we do the work of God and we fix and determine the limits. Everything passes less the infallible Word of God. "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words shall not pass away." (Matthew 24: 35)
But if you doubt, thinking: "Does evil is gone, do we really received my blessing?". This "will" is doubtful, and when doubt His Word, the Lord is prevented from operating in our favor. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for it is necessary that he who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him." (Hebrews 11: 6)
Beloved, pray stop crying, pleading with God, which, in his goodness, will remember you. Rather than do so, you should rejoice in His presence. Pray yes, not to beg the blessing, but thank the Lord for how happy you are, having had the opportunity and the understanding that in determining all that, he will in his favor.
Prayers of the Old Testament - Some religious and theologians do not accept this understanding! They assert that the Old Testament King David begged God to have mercy on him. Claim that Hannah, mother of Samuel, prayed so that the prophet Eli thought she was drunk. They really prayed that way! And you also want to pray like that?
Beloved, the Old Testament was replaced by the New Testament. These prayers beseeching God to cry, were held in the Old Testament. These people were not yet born again, therefore, had no right to have, they were dependent on the mercies of God. The Lord no longer have mercy on us, because we already had when He sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross on our behalf. Christ paid our debt! Now, we should not pray to God for mercy, we should rather pray thanking Him for what, for his mercy has done for us.
Prayers of the New Testament - See how the apostle Paul prayed in the New Testament: "My God, according to his riches shall supply all your needs in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4: 19) "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4: 13) "Thanks to God, who always causes us to triumph in Christ." (2 Corinthians 2: 14) Paul knew that the mercies of God had been poured.
But there are people who still do not know! They enter the Church, observe those religious repeatedly begging God for help to your financial, physical, marital shortcomings, but find no answers. What do these people think? "Do not want that JESUS! He does not answer and does not bless these people, certainly will not bless me! "
We supposed that the hospital enters two men, one an evangelical and voodoo, the two come in the same sector of care. The voodoo is a polite guy, so pulling issue with the evangelical and the compliments. Asks the Gospel which is the reason for his trip to the doctor. The Gospel answers the reason and also the voodoo. At this point, the evangelical realizes right to talk about JESUS macumbeiro the moment: "Look, I believe in a God who can heal you!" The voodoo rejoice, but is surprised: "But if your God is so good, why have not you cured?"
So what is the difference of evangelicals and macumbeiros? The difference is that we go to heaven and they do not, unless they repent of their sins. Correct! But they equate with the doctor in the queue, the queue of supplication, asking for a loan at the bank, etc. Ie, we serve only GOD will bless us after death? Of course not!
Now that you discovered its real possibilities before the LORD, you who are of God, recreated in Christ Jesus for success, for a full life, to determine what you want. Confess yourself: "I can do all things in Him who strengthens me!" Now you're on the Wonderful GOD, seeing their real possibilities in JESUS.
Acorda loved! The LORD JESUS is showing you how to act. It's time to wake up, to take his position in Christ. Because, otherwise, continued suffering. GOD is waiting for you to get up now and determine. Whether it's a simple headache, or some stomach trouble, kidney stones, financial problems, marital problems, or even a worse problem. Stand up now, in the name of JESUS and take a position. You can do all things through the Word of Jesus that strengthens you. Do not let the devil deceive you more, because it's time to stand up and take the good word of God.
Examples of determination - In the Holy Bible we find numerous examples of people who have determined. Despite that, few knew them, but they were successful. Initially we will highlight the Apostle Paul in the city of Lystra. "And there sat in Lystra a certain man leso feet, lame from his mother's womb, who never had walked. This same heard Paul speak, who steadfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed. Said in a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked "(Acts 14: 8-10).
Paul was not preaching in Israel, because the city of Lystra was not in Israel. In this city there were no Jews listening to Paul, there were Gentiles who worshiped gods and knew the ministry of Jesus. The apostle Paul was accompanied by Barnabas. By reporting that followed later, Barnabas seems, in the eyes of the people, was what stood out. For it was he who prepared everything for Paul preach, they then thought he was the leader. The people of Lystra worshiped various gods and the largest one was Jupiter. According to them, had fallen an image of the sky, so they called Barnabas Jupiter, after the miracle of the lesion man's feet, and Paul they called Mercury (god of eloquence) to be an inferior god.
In this place, there were many people who never heard of Jesus. Among these people was a man of foot lesion since birth. This man, humanly speaking, had no chance of being cured.
Today's science says that a human being be two years on top of a bed without movement, even if you get cured, you can not walk away, the muscles would not support the weight of the body. This man was not a boy, not a boy, also had never walked. But, sat in the crowd heard the apostle preach. Paul was doing just as Jesus did, going from town to town preaching the Word of God.
In the city of Lystra, Paul was preaching the word of God. When Paul started preaching, this man paid attention to what he spoke. When a person's attention to the Word of God, it is illuminated by the power of His Word.
In Luke relates the return of Jesus in the synagogue to preach. When Jesus taught in the synagogue was present, also was a crooked woman. JESUS noted that this woman gave His Message and attention she had received this message, enlightenment. JESUS nor prayed for her! "And behold there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years; and was bowed together, and could in no way straighten up. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto him. Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity "(Luke 13: 11-12)
The apostle Paul also stared at this man and saw that he had faith to be healed. Then he said: "I said aloud. Stand upright on thy feet And he leaped and walked." (Acts 14: 10) The man jumped up and walked away. People around were open-mouthed, wanted to make Paul and Barnabas worshiped. For very cost Paul stopped they made sacrifices to them, as if they were gods.
Understood beloved? The Apostle Paul did not pray, did not join people to make a prayer chain. He invoked the power of God, after announcing his Gospel. Invoke the power of God is to preach His Gospel! "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;. The Jew first, and also to the Greek" (Romans 1: 16)
Another example of determination was Joshua. When he commanded the sun and the moon stopped for almost one day: "Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and said the sight of Israel, Sun, holds you at Gibeon, and thou, Moon, in the valley Ajalom "(Joshua 10: 12).
The people Israel was fighting against the five kings and was winning, but the day would be for. When night came, the battle was interrupted and the kings would regroup. The other day Joshua would have a lot of work to defeat the Amorites, then he prayed to the LORD. Joshua had no understanding that we have, but he had faith that God would be with him. Thou, Moon, in the valley Ajalom Sun holds you at Gibeon, and "(Joshua 10: 12) so we did not think twice. At the moment he gave that order, the power of God went into action and all the angels of God holding the earth, mars, jupiter, saturn, the stars, the heavenly bodies, the stars, the angels held everything. Because, otherwise, there would be a heavenly disaster.
The people of Israel continued to fight. But the Amorites army was amazed, because the day did not end. When he was coming to a close another day and the people of Israel had won the war, Joshua commanded the sun and the moon press ahead in their course. "And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? The sun, therefore, stopped in the midst of heaven, and do not hurry to go down about a whole day. And there was no day like that before it or after it, that Jehovah hearkened unto the voice of a man; for the LORD fought for Israel "(Joshua 10: 13,14).
This man, exactly like us, did not understand astronomy or astrophysics and Joshua only understand the Word of God. You also do not need to understand how God heals a paralytic, healing a blind man, as the Lord of life who is already dead. What you have to understand is the Word of GOD! Because if you are right with the Lord, may determine that the power of God into action and accomplish what is determined.
Now I ask you! If at that time you pray, what will happen? Learned what will happen because your front, you expect a miracle. And it's going to happen right now, right where you are. Pray with me: "Our God and our Father, before us, in that moment of prayer, that His power. LORD GOD I along with my brother, come take possession of our blessing. LORD look and admire this my brother who are praying with me, I'm sure that His power will work the miracle in his favor. I'm sure the Lord, we will see miracles happen, I'm sure I'll see your power at work in my brother's life. JESUS is LORD in thy name we pray. "Beloved, if possible, put your hand over your illness. If not illness, put on your heart. Now say: 'Devil finished! This is an order I'm giving you, I'm not asking you, I'm ordering you, because in the name of JESUS, I determine that out of my life, my finances, my marriage, my health (tell you where he is grieving) devil's name in the name of JESUS I am commanding you, grabs your illness, take your bad and goes away in the Name of JESUS. Break their power now, give the royal decree, give the decision and order to go away and never return, in the Name of JESUS. Amen! "By faith, raise your hands to the sky and thank the Lord for the victory achieved. Amen.
