And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”(NIV)

Pastor Pauleen preached the word:
Hebrews – Faith
-We need to be using our faith in the right way so that we beleive the right thing about God.
-Faith always has an object, something we put our Faith on, we need to put our faith on God. Trusting God is built upon the facts of how He conducts Himself and how He has acted in the past.
-In new testament our first basic Faith is defined as acknowledging Jesus as the incarnate son.
a faith and knowledge resting on the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time,(NIV)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast.(NIV)
We each have a measure of Faith given to us. Why can some operate in greater works of Faith then others? Because our Faith has to grow through exercising.
I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”(NIV)
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.(NIV)
The Faith of God begets the same in us:
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.(KJV)
2 Corinthians 1:20-21
For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us,(NIV)
1 Peter: By His wounds and stripes we have been healed.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.(NIV)
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.(NIV)
Everything is done in the spiritual realm, by using our faith we pull those things down into the material realm.
We need to use our Faith to call those things which currently are not but as though they were!
Keys to grow in our faith:
-walk in your faith, not in your doubts: FAITH leads to understanding which increases our faith. Faith opens the door to understanding.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.(NIV)
Faith is not passive. It always acts, seeks it’s object diligently.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.(NIV)
YOUR FAITH IS THE ONE THAT CAN CHANGED YOUR LIFE BECAUSE JESUS IN HIS WORD HAS PROMISED IT SO!!!!
