Receive what you have only Dared to Dream!
Clint Brown recently visited the set of Breakthrough and taught us about the progression of FAITH through the book of Hebrews chapter 11 starting with NOW FAITH
in verse 1, proceeding to THROUGH FAITH
in verse 3 and then to BY FAITH
in verse 4.
Scripture tells us in Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith
is the substance of things hoped for...”
In verse 3, it says: “Through Faith
we understand that the worlds were made...”
Then in verse 4, the Bible says, “By Faith Abel
offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice...”
The progression is:
NOW FAITH…THROUGH FAITH…BY FAITH…
To understand this process, you have to understand what faith is. The Words “Now Faith” in the original Greek is interpreted to mean, my total trust. Total trust in God does not come from tomorrow, it comes from yesterday. Remember, Faith is never demanded beyond our experience. You have had an experience with God and that produces confidence.
Confidence comes from a relationship with GOD. When we extend our faith, it is built on the confidence that God will be a man of His word, and that he has never failed us yet. The word “substance” means foundation or starting point “of things hoped for. It is the evidence of things not seen. Now total trust is the foundation, the starting point, the proof that something is going on, though I can’t see it.
But here is the shouting point in Hebrews:
I thought that if I had faith for my blessing, God would do it or that my faith would produce it. I had always thought that my blessing didn’t exist yet. But that is not what scripture says. Faith doesn’t produce my blessing, it REVEALS IT.
The Harvest is already provided!
Our Blessing is right there!
A seed is proof that the Harvest that it came from already exists!
Here is the Key to the whole teaching:
Sowing is but a moment but a Harvest lasts forever.
If we can use the example of an apple seed, one apple seed creates over time a whole apple orchard that can last generations.
Now how do we release this HARVEST? By the Power that is resident in a SEED!
According to Psalms 50:5, it says, “Bring me someone that will link together in covenant by way of sacrifice.”
Today, put a seed in your hand of $55 in honor of Psalms 50:5. Or maybe it may be a $550 seed. Whatever God says to you at this moment.
Don’t hesitate. Now is your time to have NOW FAITH!
One seed can produce a lifetime harvest. Sow today and receive what you have only dared to dream about!
