Praying the Complete Prayer of Faith

As Faith Specialists, we continue to seek a deeper understanding of God’s Word to better relay the truths that we find to others – to help them receive all of the BLESSING of God.

With that in mind, I returned once again to Mark 11:22-26, but made sure that I read it in context so as not to miss any part of the message.

Fear Not + Only Believe = Receive Miracles

Jesus expects Christians to “fear not, only believe”…and then receive miracles.

Many Christians have the false notion that Jesus performed the great miracles that He did because He was the Son of God. Yes, He definitely was, and still is, the Son of God; but He didn’t perform the miracles through His deity, but as the anointed Son of Man. The anointing of the Holy Spirit that was given to Him without measure is what made Him the Messiah, or in the Greek language, the Christ.

The second person of the Godhead is known as the Word as identified in John 1:1 and John 1:14. He took on human flesh, He was born of a woman, and learned from the Old Testament writings that He was God’s Son by the age of 12. This is when He was found lingering in the Temple in Jerusalem, and told His parents, Mary and Joseph, that He had to be about His Father’s business.

The Apostle Paul tells us in Philippians 2:6-8, “who being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” He never used His deity in ministry, but only stepped out into His high priestly roll after He was baptized in water by John the Baptist. At that time, the Holy Spirit came upon Him to empower Him as the Anointed One, or the anointed Son of man.

Jesus Himself said in John 5:19, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son does in like manner.” In other words, Jesus perfected the walk in the Spirit, where He was in constant communication with the Father, and in each instance that He came upon, He only said what He heard the Father say, and He only did what He saw the Father do. The Father did the miracles through Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit, as Jesus yielded His complete will to the Father.

This gives us a major understanding of how the miracles of Jesus happened. He had to 1) hear from the Father first, 2) do or say whatever the Father said, then 3) wait for Him to perform the miracle. That is still the way miracles happen today. The only difference is that Jesus in now the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He sits in complete dominion of life itself. Now, we need to 1) hear from Him or the Father, 2) do or say whatever They say, and 3) wait for Them to perform the miracle by the power of the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

 

Stop the fear, only believe

The only problem is that we have to believe! Some people that started reading this short article, put it down, and went on to something else because they have been brainwashed by the enemy to believe that miracles ceased when the Apostles of the Lamb and the founding Apostles died. Nothing could be further from the truth. For those who have stayed with me to this point, be greatly encouraged by how simple faith comes. It is a choice, based on God’s argument in His Word. Choose to believe Him, and faith comes alive.

One enemy to faith that is also a choice is fear. Jesus expects us to stop the fear. He spoke to Jairus, the ruler of the synagogue in Capernaum, when he was told not to bother the Teacher any further because his daughter was dead. Jesus said to him in Mark 5:36, “Fear not, only believe.” One translation says, “Stop the fear, only believe.” Jesus must have heard the Father in Heaven give the instructions, because He acted on the Father's directions, and Jairus’ daughter was raised from the dead.

Another man brought his demon-possessed son to Jesus. The demon caused the son to not be able to speak and to have convulsions that caused him to fall into the water or into the fire. This demon was obviously trying to kill the son. The man cried out to Jesus in Mark 9:22, “…if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” Jesus answered and said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” This must have inspired the man, but at the same time, he realized that he needed more help. He responded by saying, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” Jesus must have heard the Father in Heaven to give great grace to the man for his faith, and his honesty about his lack of faith, because Jesus immediately cast the spirit out of the young man, and he was permanently set free.

I leave you with these two major keys in receiving any miracle from God (and in all honesty, everyone needs some miracles!). Stop the fear, only believe. If you can believe, all things are possible to those who believe.

On July 11, 2019, in our LCU Healing Services, I started to teach several powerful truths that we have been immersed in at our Main Campus for several years. You see...

We have been studying The Mirror Bible, which is a word-by-word expansion of the New Testament, revealing the depth of expression in the original Greek words.  The Mirror Bible is all about who we are in the spiritual realm - what you could call “throne room realities.” In these last days, God is revealing more and more to us, by the Holy Spirit, as we look into what the Scriptures actually say about us. It's not pride to agree with what God says about you. In fact, if we can agree with Him, nothing is impossible! New perceptions bring healing.

Our starting point is Colossians 3:1 from The Mirror Bible“See yourselves co-raised with Christ! Now ponder with persuasion the consequence of your co-inclusion in him. Relocate yourselves mentally! Engage your thoughts with throne room realities where you are co-seated with Christ in the executive authority of God’s right hand.”

Following are some quotes from The Mirror Bible that we referred to in the healing service. (These were taken from “Why the Mirror Translation” by Francois du Toit). Many in attendance reported great illumination of the Scriptures as they listened to the anointed Word of God. Here is the link for you to watch the entire service:

https://divinehealing.faith/new-perceptions-bring-healing/

Jesus’ brother, James… discovers his own true identity when Jesus appears to him after the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:4-7). James writes in James 1:23-25, “By being a mere spectator in the audience you underestimate yourself (you come to an inferior conclusion of who you really are). You are God’s poem. The difference between a mere spectator and a participator is that both of them hear the same voice and perceive in its message the face of their own genesis reflected as in a mirror; they realize that they are looking at themselves, but for the one it seems just too good to be true, he departs (back to his old way of seeing himself) never giving another thought to the person he saw there in the mirror.

“The other one is mesmerized by what he sees; he is captivated by the effect of a law that frees mankind from the obligation to the old written code that restricted them to their own efforts and willpower. No distraction or contradiction can dim the impact of what he sees in that mirror concerning the law of perfect liberty (the law of faith) that now frees one to get on with the act of living the life (of their original design). This person finds a new spontaneous lifestyle, the poetry of practical living.

“The law of perfect liberty is the image and likeness of God revealed in Christ, now redeemed in human life, as in a mirror. Look deep enough into that law of faith that you may see there in its perfection a portrait that so resembles the original that he becomes distinctly visible in the spirit of your mind and in the face of everyone you behold.”

A Radical Mind Shift

A word in any language can be most fascinating. A seed stores the life energy and the genetic detail of a plant species in much the same way as thoughts and concepts are concealed in words and language. Individual words can greatly influence the meaning and interpretation of any conversation.

For many years deliberate as well as oblivious errors in translations were repeated and have empowered the religious institutions of the day to influence, manipulate, and even abuse masses of people.

Consider the word metanoia, from meta, “together” with and nous, “mind” or “mental awareness.” This word suggests a radical mind shift; it is to realize God’s thoughts towards us. It is an awakening to the awareness of God's thoughts. To co-know!

Sadly this word has been translated regularly as “repentance,” which is an old English word borrowed from the Latin, which means penance. Then they added the “re” to get even more mileage out of sin consciousness. Re-penance. This gross deception led to the perverted doctrines of indulgences, where naive, ignorant people were led to believe that they needed to purchase favor from an angry god. Most cathedrals as well as many ministries were funded with this guilt money.

English translations do little to help us understand what repentance truly is. Until Jerome’s Latin Vulgate translation, the word metanoia was commonly used. For instance, Tertullian wrote in 198 A.D., “In Greek, metanoia is not a confession of sins but a change of mind.” But despite this, the Latin fathers begin to translate the word as “do penance” following the Roman Catholic teaching on doing penance in order to win God’s favor.

The business of religion desperately needs paying and returning customers. The entire system that trapped multitudes in their hierarchy of sin-consciousness was challenged and condemned by Jesus. In the genius of God, the Lamb of God took the sin of the world out of the equation!

Isaiah 55:8-11 gives meaning to metanoia: “your thoughts were distanced from God’s thoughts as the heavens are higher than the earth, but just like the rain and the snow would cancel that distance and saturate the soil to awaken its seed, so shall my word be that proceeds from my mouth.”

The Greek preposition meta, “together with,” implies another influence. This is where the Good News becomes so relevant since it appeals to our conscience to reason together with the Engineer of our original design where the authentic thought, the mind of God is realized again. The distance caused by Adam’s fall, compared to the distance between heaven and earth, is cancelled in the incarnation. Metanoia suggests a co-knowing with God! It is an intertwining of thought; it is to agree with God about me.

Jesus is what God believes about you.

In Mark 11:22, Jesus says, “Have the faith of God.” Unfortunately, most translations say, “Have faith in God.” There is a massive difference between our beliefs and philosophies about God and God’s persuasion about us! God’s belief in you gives substance to your faith. Jesus is what God believes about you. Your belief in God does not define him; his faith in what he knows to be true about you defines you.

If our point of reference is not God’s faith in the finished work of Christ we have no valid gospel to preach. If our faith is not sourced and sustained in him as the mirror image of God revealed and redeemed in us, we are deceiving ourselves with yet another religious disguise called Christianity.

Jesus is the face of the Father! “If you have seen me you have seen the Father.” This was his purpose, to resonate and redeem the Abba echo in every human heart. “You have your heads in your Bibles constantly because you think you’ll find eternal life there. But you miss the forest for the trees. These Scriptures are all about me!” (John 5:39, The Message. See also Luke 24:27, 44, 45.)

Jesus is what the Bible is all about, and you are what Jesus is all about (John 5:39).

Every invention begins with an original thought. You are God’s original thought. You are his initiative, the fruit of his creative inspiration, his intimate design and love-dream. The first Hebrew word in the Bible, בראשית bereshet, from berosh, literally means “in the head.” God had you in mind from the beginning. You are his work of art; his poem, says Paul in the Greek text of Ephesians 2:10.

Every human life is equally valued and represented in Christ. He gives context and reference to our being as in a mirror; not as an example for us, but of us. The ugly duckling saw reflected in the water the truth that freed the swan.

 

Perceiving the completed work of your co-inclusion in all things that Christ possesses elevates your faith. When your mind lines up with God’s faith, you realize there is nothing too hard for God, that no sickness is beyond what He can do to heal and restore your physical body.

Christmas time is finally upon us. It is definitely my favorite time of the year, and I am sure many of us feel the same way. As a believer, I especially love the story of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

As time goes on, I think that I appreciate the back stories about this event which is the central theme of our lives and even of time itself. The unfolding of the events from the very beginning reveal a special gift that is available to all of us as a hidden Christmas gift if we will simply receive it. That is the gift of faith.

When the young virgin Mary was visited by the angel Gabriel, she was troubled by this miraculous experience, mostly because of Gabriel’s salutation. “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you: blessed are you among women!” Luke 1:28. He continued, “Do not be afraid Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.” Luke 1:30-33.

Mary was engaged to be wed to Joseph. In the Jewish custom, this was the same as being married, but they had not yet consummated the marriage by joining together physically; that would happen only after the official wedding feast. Mary told this to the angel and he answered her;” The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. For with God, nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:35-37.

“Then Mary said, Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” Luke 1:38. This faith answer that Mary gave to the angel Gabriel is fascinating. She was telling him that she was willing for everything that he had spoken to come to pass in her life. But what caused her to have such faith in the angel’s words?

The answer is in his statement, “For with God, nothing will be impossible.” As a minister and as a student of the God’s word, I have learned to use a few Greek word study tools. As a graduate of Rhema Bible Training College, I was quite familiar with the word rhema, which means, “spoken word”, with the idea of it being a word spoken to you personally. One day I was looking through my word study concordance and observing the various ways that the KJV translators had translated this word. I looked down the list of scriptures in order and noticed that most of the time they chose the word, ”word”, and many times the word, “saying” was chosen. But all of a sudden I noticed it was translated as “nothing”. It was from this passage in Luke’s gospel, 1:37. Which means literally, “No word of God will be impossible”. The word rhema had the Greek prefix which negated the word, now rendering it as “no word”, but translated by the translators as “nothing”.

You see the gift to all of us here is just like the faith promise offered to Mary. If God says or promises something to us in His word, the Bible, that word that He has spoken is possible to be received in your life. Most Christians will agree that this is true of the promise from Romans 10:13. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

What if we believed His word penned by the Apostle Paul from I Corinthians 9:8? “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” Or I Corinthians 8:9, which says, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.” Jesus was certainly rich in Heaven before He chose to take on human flesh to become our Savior. But even while on Earth, He led a traveling mega-ministry around, providing for all of His disciples; 70 of them, not just the 12, and obviously their families that they left in order to follow Jesus. There was so much provision in the money pouch that Judas was constantly stealing from it and no one noticed it but Jesus.

Jesus became poor while hanging on the cross for me and for you. That was the place that he bore our sins, our poverty and our sickness. The Apostle Peter penned God’s word’s to us when he was referencing Isiah 53:5, saying, “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we having died to sins, might live for righteousness-by whose stripes you were healed.”

This is the gift that God wants us to receive this Christmas. His Word is His bond. Take Him at His Word. Jesus taught His disciples a faith lesson after Peter noticed that a fig tree that Jesus had cursed withered from the roots. Jesus immediately said in Mark 11:22, “Have faith in God.” When we look at the literal translation its says, “Have God’s faith.” You see, we don’t have faith of our own until we believe God’s Word, and then His faith comes into our heart. What Jesus was telling His disciples was that were being offered the gift of God’s faint to use as their own. He is saying the same thing to us today.

I had the opportunity to travel to Nazareth in Israel back in 1977. My friends and I were shopping through the markets that lined the streets when I got separated from them and was lost for about an hour. I saw a large church and walked into it to see if I could get some help. I noticed a Franciscan priest that seemed to be there to answer people’s questions. I told him that I was lost, and asked him what church this was. He answered, this is the Church of the Annunciation.

Suddenly it hit me, of course, Nazareth. My mind immediately ran to this Christmas story and Gabriel coming to speak to Mary. I asked, is this where Mary lived? He said, the grotto below is believed to be Mary’s home. So I then said to the priest, if this is where Gabriel announced to Mary that she was going to become the mother of the Son of God, then this must be the same place that the Holy Spirit came upon her and she conceive the Lord Jesus. I said, this must be the place that God touched the earth to bring salvation to all the people of the world. Immediately the priest began to weep. Then I began to weep, and we just both stood there weeping and worshiping God for His goodness, His grace and His mercy, and blessing us to allow us to be standing in such a holy place.

Eventually my friends showed up at the Church of the Annunciation, and I was able to come back home to the USA; but it would have been OK if I had to stay there till Jesus came back for me.

Receive the gift of God’s faith this Christmas. Believe that all of His promises, His Words, are for you and your loved ones, so that you might receive the abundant life that Jesus died to give you.

When December rolls around each year, the most wonderful time of the year is especially exciting for us Christians. We know that this is a short but blessed time when everyone has to notice the celebration of the Christ child coming to the earth as a baby, Jesus of Nazareth.

Each year, Christians pray that the Lord of the harvest would be able to enlighten many peoples’ understanding during this season, and help them decide to receive Jesus as their Savior and Lord. At the same time, we are painfully aware that most will blare through the holiday, oblivious to the great salvation that is available to each person through one simple prayer.

Each year I return to the book of Luke that has such an amazing description of the birth of our Savior, and I read it again to see what subtle nuance of the Christmas story I may gain. Of course, we remember the primary story of the Angel Gabriel first coming to Zacharias, the future father of John the Baptist, and then to Mary, the future mother of Jesus.

In the encounter with Zacharias, it is interesting to note that Zacharias doubted the words of Gabriel that God had answered his prayer and that he and his wife Elizabeth were going to have a son. Also that their son would be a great prophet who would prepare the way of the Lord. Gabriel told Zacharias that he would be mute and unable to speak until the child was born because he doubted his word. A person of faith would understand that this was a faith proposition from God, and no words of doubt and unbelief would be allowed to mess things up.

Then when Gabriel announced to Mary that she would conceive in her womb and bring forth a Son and shall call His name Jesus, she simply asked how it would be done, since she had not yet consummated her marriage to Joseph. According to the customs that would not be done until after their wedding feast. No one had ever heard of someone having a child without an earthly father before. Zacharias and Elizabeth were going to conceive in the normal way after the Lord healed Elizabeth. It is understandable that Mary was simply was curious as to how this would happen, but she was not doubting that the word of the angel was indeed the Word of God.

Gabriel’s answer in Luke 1:35 is the absolute core of the whole Gospel. “The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.” Here Gabriel explained that the Holy Spirit would come on her, and that the power of the Highest, God the Father, would overshadow her, manifesting human flesh created by God. This is exactly the same way that He created the first man, Adam. Now this incorruptible seed in Mary would mature and be born, and become known as the Son of God.

Up until this time, the triune God—one God manifest as three persons—was know as the Father, the Word and the Holy Spirit. From this point on, God would be known as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Gabriel finished his words to Mary by saying, “For with God nothing will be impossible.” The word nothing in this passage is a variation of the root word “rhema” which is the Greek word for “Spoken word”, but here it is in the negative meaning “No Word.” Gabriel was saying, ”No Word that God speaks will be impossible.” Mary’s response was, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord. Let it be to me according to your word.” Hearing Mary’s answer of faith, Gabriel departed, knowing that the message had been delivered and received by faith.

We can only assume that right then and there, that which the Angel Gabriel described and what Mary agreed to in faith, took place. The Holy Spirit came upon her, the power of the Father overshadowed her, and Jesus the Son of the Living God was conceived in her womb.

As the marvelous Christmas story progresses, we find a wonderful thing happened after John the Baptist is born. Zacharias was healed of his inability to speak in order to name his son. Then suddenly he began to prophecy to the new born infant about his role in preparing the way of the Lord. In Luke 1:76 he said, “And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; For you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways.” Then in verse 78 and 79 he describes this Holy One, the Lord as, “This Dayspring from on high has visited us; To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

This part of the story was that nuance that I was looking for. Notice that the Lord Jesus would not guide our feet to the way of peace, but “guide our feet unto the way of peace.” You see, peace is not a destination that we are striving to reach at some illusive time in the future. Peace is the way wherein we walk all the days of our lives as the children of God.

We did not just gain peace with God when we accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior. God was never at war with us, we simply thought before we knew Him that He was angry with us. We assumed and feared that judgment was certainly headed out way. No, God loved us even when we made ourselves His enemy. The peace that we gained was not peace with God, it literally was the peace of God. God downloaded into us His peace, His love, His acceptance, His absolute delight with us as His children when we were born again.

This is the way of peace that Jesus came to deliver to us. He had to destroy the works of the devil that kept us blinded from the love that God the Father had for us. That is what the Apostle John told us in I John 3:8, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.”

I like asking Christians if they believe that Jesus was successful in accomplishing His purposes in coming to earth. Did He really destroy the works of the devil? Remember that John also described Him in John 1:14 saying, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” Yes, Jesus fully destroyed the works of the devil for everyone who will believe. But His great victory is of no effect though, for those who refuse to believe. Faith in Jesus is a choice.

If you have never prayed the “Believer’s Prayer” before, I invite you do so today, and gain this peace that passes all understanding that is available with the new birth in Christ. Simply say this to our Father in Heaven; “Heavenly Father, I believe in my heart that you raised Jesus Christ from the dead after He purchased the redemption of every human soul through His sacrifice; it was that miraculous exchange of His righteousness for our unrighteousness; and I now confess Jesus as my Savior and Lord. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Redeemer and my Master, so that I can live for you all of my earthly life, and with you all of my eternal life in Heaven. Amen.”

 

Welcome to the family of God.

Life Christian University provides Spirit-filled and faith-filled ministry education and equipping for passionate believers at local campuses world-wide as well as online.

With the joy of the Christmas season just behind us, we are now faced with a new year and a new question:

Will we face it with dread and gloom or with faith and expectation?

So often when entering a new year, I hear comments along the lines of, "I sure hope this year will be better than last year." Each year brings new challenges to our faith. If we feel circumstances where we were believing for divine intervention have not yet been resolved, the tendency of our human reasoning is to look forward with dread rather than faith. However, as born-again, Spirit-filled, Word-of-Faith Christians, we simply cannot give in to typical human reasoning!

While praying in the Spirit recently, the Lord showed me one of the key issues bothering many of those knowing the whole counsel of God's Word is a perceived total apathy towards the Truth by so many Christians around us. We know the solutions to mankind's problems can always — and only — be found in God's Word. We sometimes begin to feel we are the only ones who are interested in really knowing the Lord and understanding His Word. Then the Lord showed me there are countless numbers of people who are hungry for more and yet don't know where to go to find it.

Those of us in the ministry often feel frustrated that we cannot connect with those who are hungry for God. As a ministry university, we have spent much time praying for the wisdom of God in promoting the education we offer. Pastors of churches pray for the wisdom to promote the ministry the church has to offer to those who they know are hurting and in need. We need a better way to reach these hungry souls, and the better way is always God's way.

This is how the Lord showed me we should pray going into the New Year. Remember, we are the answer to the prayer Jesus told His disciples to pray concerning sending forth laborers into His harvest. God called us with a personal intervention into our lives. He can do the same for every hungry person around us. We simply need Him to connect us supernaturally with the hungry souls. We are the deep calling unto the deep. The hungry heart wants to go deeper in the Word and deeper in the presence of God. That is what we have experienced and we know how to lead them into this deeper place in God.

The psalmist who penned Psalm 42 was in a crisis of life and needed to experience the deep, abiding presence of God. He starts with:

As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance.

The psalmist begins to remember where his help comes from in the next few verses. I believe every truly born-again believer has a knowing in their spirit that this help from the Lord is available. Verses 6-8 say:

O my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember You from the land of Jordan, and from the heights of Hermon, and from the Hill of Mizar. Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls; All Your waves and billows have gone over me. The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me — A prayer to the God of my life.

I believe it is time for us to pray in a new Word-of-Faith revival. There are still many hungry hearts who need to be supernaturally directed to find the answers about how good a God our God is. Many who are not yet in the Kingdom, God is calling by His Spirit to come in and know Him. Many who are wallowing in despair in dead churches, God is calling to connect where the answers are being poured out freely by our loving God.

It is time for our LCU sphere of association to rise up like never before and call in the supernatural connection to hungry hearts. Deep calling unto deep. 2019 can be the greatest year of impact we have ever seen. We entered into this calling to do the greatest work we ever could and to have the greatest impact we can possibly have. So join us at Main Campus as we declare 2019 as "The Year of Deep Calling unto Deep."
