Show Notes Chapter Markers

Welcome to Word of Life Study Series- Faith that moves mountains! This episode will bring forth revelation from God’s Word that will equip us with the keys of the kingdom. These keys of faith will unlock God’s possibilities in any impossible situation. Here are just a few objectives:

a)     Layout the essential Biblical background and principles concerning Faith.

b)    Build excitement in God’s possibilities for His children to enter into their Promise Land!

c)     Point out areas of excess, pitfalls and misnomers that have lead Christians into ditches.

 Romans 3:27 (KJV) “Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No: but by the law of faith.”


1. What if Faith

Faith Is:  Sure, Substance, Assurance, Confirmation, Title Deed, Certainty, Proof of Things, Conviction of their Reality, Perceiving as Real Fact. Faith in its very core is an action. This word is basically used in every book of the New Testament. For our purposes, in this episode we will be studying this particular use of the word; the Biblical operation of the law of faith. The simple implementation of the spiritual laws, and principles of faith.


2. Faith is the Substance

Faith as a “Substance” does not make sense to a lot of people. When most Christians here the word “faith,” they are only thinking of the one side of faith- the noun usage, “the Faith.” In other words, they are thinking of, “the tenants of the faith” represented in a creed- a belief system in statement form. However, the flip side of understanding faith is through Scripture as spiritual laws. I am talking about a faith in God that manifests the Kingdom of God on the earth, something that is real and tangible.


3. Faith is the Evidence

Now the word, “Evidence” is a legal term that denotes words like, “Proof or Title-Deed.” Faith is not some practice that weird religious nuts exercise. Some ridiculous notions of presumption and supposition. This, “Faith Business” as some ridicule, is really “God’s business of doing things.” It is very real from a spiritual standpoint. The word assurance (KJV) or proof (NIV) in Acts 17:31 is the same Greek word as faith.


4. Three Kinds of Faith

Natural Human Faith: Everyone has natural human faith, saint or sinner alike. It is simply believing with the five physical senses. What we feel, taste, touch, smell and hear.

 Bible Believing Faith: not everyone can operate in the spiritual side of faith according to 1 Thessalonians 3:2. The unsaved are not born again, they do not have the Word of God in their heart. They have no legal standing to claim the promises of God without coming to Jesus first. Bible faith works out of the heart of the believer who has been born again.

 Special Faith: Special faith is a temporary deposit of faith from God in our heart. Usually it is given in conjunction with the working of miracles. Special faith is a manifestation of the Spirit of God in a particular instance. This deposit of faith is beyond our capacity to believe.
