The Faith Factor
PT I - The Foundation for Faith
PT II - The Formula for Faith
PT III - The Fight of Faith
PT IV. - Faith vs. Facts
Our Scripture teaches us that Christians walk by faith and not by sight.
Faith will never fail you but sight will blind you to the possibilities in God.
In other words looking a life and circumstances through your natural eyes/vision weakens your ability to believe God and take him at his word.
The author here is teaching on faith because, like today, there were many who professed faith in Christ but in hard times they “turned back”, gave up, walked away, threw in the towel, quit the church, left the ministry, gave up on hope, got angry with God...
A true believer may possess the faith to keep going, when everything in them says to quit.
Real faith speaks to circumstances as Job did when he lost everything.
Job said, though the Lord slay me yet will I trust in Him.
I’m convinced that the Lord has me on assignment to help take back your faith, increase your faith, and take your faith walk to the next level.
The enemy may have had you down but I declare that the Word of the Lord is about to lift you up.
I decree you will not give up.
You will not turn back.
You will not quit.
You will put on the whole armor of God and stand against the tricks of the adversary.
And after you’ve done all that you can do to stand, you’re going to keep standing by faith with your head held high and a word in your mouth that says, “I believe that my God is able”.
The Foundation of Faith in God is Faith in Jesus Christ - The Messiah
A relationship with God has to be one that is founded upon faith not facts, not figures, not philosophies.
Not worries, not man, not power, not popularity, not resources, not anything in heaven or on earth.
A relationship with God has to be founded upon and lived by faith.
First of all, you cannot have faith in God without having faith in Jesus.
Jesus is the only way to the Father.
And as Jesus said in the Scripture, “If you don’t have me you don’t have the Father.
He said in (NKJV)
7 Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep.
8 All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them.
9 I am the door.
If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
Jesus is using an illustrating of sheep coming out of the pasture, through a door/gate of a resting place for safety as the night falls upon them.
In other words, Jesus is the door way and we are the sheep.
And the only way to safe passage from the wolves, darkness, and evil of this world in through Him.
The only way to eternal life is through Him.
You cannot have faith in God without first having faith in Jesus Christ - Son of the Living God!
Jesus Laid the Foundation of our Faith
The Old Testament Prophet Isaiah foretold of Jesus coming and that He would be the foundation on which all men were to be saved.
That he would be the rock on which our faith could stand.
He said in (NKJV) “Therefore thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation, A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation; Whoever believes will not act hastily.
Isaiah is not talking mineral stones of the earth but a living stone and living Rock in Jesus Christ.
He is the foundation of our faith.
Teaching to the church at Corinth, the Apostle Paul says, “For no other foundation can anyone lay that which was laid which is Jesus Christ.”
A Cornerstone in Zion
16 Therefore thus says the Lord God:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a foundation,
A foundation is the support system for building anything.
The foundation determines standing power, survival power, resistance power, building power.
Jesus is our support system whereby we build our faith in God, our trust in God, our belief in God.
It is by His bloodshed on the cross that we are saved.
It is by his sacrifice that we have power to overcome the world and the adversary therein.
A tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation;
Whoever believes will not act hastily.
There is not other name in heaven and earth whereby men are saved from their sins but the name of Jesus Christ.
For He humbled himself and became a servant of God even unto death.
And God has given him a name above all names that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is Lord.
It’s Important to Know What Faith Is
Faith is a conviction that I can have what I believe regardless of the facts.
Faith is the evidence that I receive what I hope for and the expectation of things that have not manifest in my live.
Faith is a confident and committed attitude specifically in God, his Christ, and His Word...Faith in God is a confident expectation of the things that we cannot see.
Our text says, “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
When you possess faith, you believe and expect the plan of God to happen in your life even when you cannot see it in the natural.
As you speak and declare God word over your situation, it is a witness to Heaven and Earth that you already have what you say.
Faith causes what is invisible to our senses to manifest in our lives.
It reaches out and grabs what we cannot see and causes our soul to testify that it shall be so in our lives.
Faith is the evidence that I trust and believe God will do it.
The Formula of Faith- Part II (, Hebrews 11:1-3,6)
Faith is the realization of the things hoped for and the expectation of things not seen.
Faith is a confident and committed attitude specifically in God, his Christ, and His Word...Faith in God is a confident expectation of the things that we cannot see.
There is a formula to faith...
Belief - Belief is a conviction of your reality.
Belief has to have information in order for it to exist.
The Scripture says that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
As we hear the Word of God we believe the word of God.
When we believe the Word of God we have a testimony of faith in His word.
We must then believe in order to receive.
Endurance - The Apostle Paul said to the young Evangelist Timothy, “Endure hardness like a good soldier”.
Endurance is a indication of confidence.
The author of Hebrew is emphasis endurance because his the people displayed a lack of it.
When you endure you remain persistent in unfavorable circumstances.
Jesus is our example of endurance.
The Scripture teach us that Jesus, “endure the cross-despising the same”.
He remained persistent in unfavorable circumstances.
They took him bound from the Garden of Gethsemane but He was remained persistent...
Patience - In 10:36, the author speaks of patience.
Patience is another element of faith.
Here the Greek word for patience means “waiting endurance”.
It means to wait with perseverance.
I’m talking about the kind of faith that can wait through a storm.
Wait through adversity.
Tough it out and still proclaim that the Lord is good.
Let me take you deeper.
The Hebrew verb kindred to this word is translated “wait for it”.
Faith says GOD I CAN WAIT FOR IT...
Expectation - expectation means to eagerly await as one who anticipates…one definition of anticipate is a visualization of a future state or event… A second definition is to spend money before you actually get it.
Think of this in the form of a line of credit...
Faith is how we please the Father
It’s not question that we please the Father by our obedience.
Yet faith precedes obedience.
