Bible Study on Can You Believe All Things Are Possible By The Fruits Of Faith In Christ Jesus according to Mark 2:4-5, Mark 5:29,34, Matthew 8:8,10, Matthew 11:12, 1 Timothy 6:12, 1 Corinthians 9:26, Luke 18:8, 1 Timothy 3:9, 1 Corinthians 2:5, 1 John 5:4, Romans 1:16, Mark 9:22-23, John 14:12, Romans 4:20-21, 1 Corinthians 16:9, Proverbs 30:30, Genesis 49:8-12, 1 Samuel 1:12-14

If you believe you can even raise the dead, heal the sick and cleanse the leapor. Can you believe that all these are possible in the name of Christ Jesus?
Determined faith will always get God’s attention for His devine  intervention. We need dynamic faith that produce result. The sick of the palsy could be miraculously healed by receiving the Word of God from Christ Jesus, because his 4 good friends has determined faith in Jesus our healer and were prepared to do at all cost to get the attention of the son of God as seen in the story told by Mark: 2. 4. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the crowd, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed whereon the sick of the palsy lay. 5. And Jesus seeing their faith saith unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins are forgiven.

The woman with the problem of blood got healed for she kept on saying if I only touch His garment I will be restored to good health as depicted in Mark: 5. 29. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her plague. Mark: 5. 34. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
And also in the story of a centurion who he asked Jesus for help to save his dying servant and the centurion had strong faith in the power of healing through Christ Jesus as showned in Matthew: 8. 8. And the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof; but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. 10. And when Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.

As Christ follower, we need to be forceful, determined and zealous to claim and take God’s kingdom and power that is bestowed from High. Going after the prized of God’s promise we will with intense  and firm grip on faith and living confession of the Word of God as reasoned by Jesus’s apostle in Matthew: 11. 12. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and men of violence take it by force.

Furthermore, we also need to have zealous faith and fight a good fight with God until the end as taught by Jesus’s apostle as in 1 Timothy: 6. 12. Fight the good fight of the faith, lay hold on the life eternal, whereunto thou wast called, and didst confess the good confession in the sight of many witnesses. And also in 1 Corinthians: 9. 26. I therefore so run, as not uncertainly; so fight I, as not beating the air. So to Jesus what kind of faith that is missing from His followers? According to Him it is that of determined faith as queried by Luke: 18. 8. I say unto you, that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? And again it is described as holding to with a pure conscience in 1 Timothy: 3. 9. holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

Faith is something we receive in our hearts, where our faith becomes fruitful in our life. Faith empowers us to help us gain mastery of our life. Whereas the finite wisdom and knowledge of men alone leads to greed, lust, controlled desires, self centered around worldly money and materials, suffering and bondage as charged in 1 Corinthians: 2. 5. that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. And faith in God also enable us to become victorious to overcome the world as said by 1 John: 5. 4. For whatsoever is begotten of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that hath overcome the world, [even] our faith.

How does faith works to empower us? Because faith converts the Word into power, the raw power that nothing can stop it. Romans: 1. 16. For I am not ashamed of the gospel: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. As witnessed in the Holy Bible when Jesus heals and He indeed does good job and never a partial healing. Can you have faith that God and the Son of man has indeed gone before us and finished all that is needed in our lives? As told by Mark: 9. 22. And oft-times it hath cast him both into the fire and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us. 23. And Jesus said unto him, If thou canst! All things are possible to him that believeth. And nothing is ever impossible to God; so is nothing will be impossible to us, if only we have determined faith as in John: 14. 12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.

We must have unstaggering faith that is unwavering and waxed strong through and until God’s promises comes to past as described in Romans: 4. 20. yet, looking unto the promise of God, he wavered not through unbelief, but waxed strong through faith, giving glory to God, 21. and being fully assured that what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

The bigger the door of faith, the more the adversaries we must overcome on the other side of the door as portrayed in 1 Corinthians: 16. 9. for a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. Because Jesus Christ lives in us, we must be bold, forceful like the lion of Judah and be determined to tap into the faith of God as in Proverbs: 30. 30. The lion, which is mightiest among beasts, And turneth not away for any.

Furthermore, there has to be a rouse up the faith in us like a lion’s whelp as depicted in Genesis: 49. 8. Judah, thee shall thy brethren praise: Thy hand shall be on the neck of thine enemies; Thy father’s sons shall bow down before thee. 9. Judah is a lion’s whelp; From the prey, my son, thou art gone up: He stooped down, he couched as a lion, And as a lioness; who shall rouse him up? If we want the lion nature to rise up, we need to be intoxicated with the wine of the Holy Spirit and the pure milk of the Word of God as portrayed in Genesis: 49. 12. His eyes shall be red with wine, And his teeth white with milk. We therefore need the wine of prayer to drunken us through our continuous prayer in the Holy Spirit as told in 1 Samuel: 1. 12. And it came to pass, as she continued praying before Jehovah, that Eli marked her mouth. 13. Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken. 14. And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee. Rest assured when we have the wine of vision, God has gone before the vision and He will back it up.

Bible Study on Believing And Desires To Become God’s Vessels Of Miracles To Unleash His Great Wonders For Our Generation according to John 4:48, Hebrews 2:3-4, Mark 16:17-18, John 14:12, Mark 16:20, Acts 2:32-33, Matthew 11:20, 14:2, 28:19

We are the vessel of God’s miracles on earth. Miracles in Greek is Teres as mentioned in John: 4. 48. Jesus therefore said unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will in no wise believe. Are you willing to let God turn your live for God’s glory?

Although we are vessels of miracles through Christ Jesus, however not all of us can exercise being vessels of miracles. But the happening of miracles like those recorded in the Holy Bible is in accordance with God’s knowledge and sovereignity and not by following our wishes and prayers. Today God is making use of miracles especially in the poor, war thorn and non Christian countries to bring and realign people back to God as mentioned in Hebrews: 2. 3. how shall we escape, if we neglect so great a salvation? which having at the first been spoken through the Lord, was confirmed unto us by them that heard; 4. God also bearing witness with them, both by signs and wonders, and by manifold powers, and by gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to his own will.

To become a vessel of miracles, we need to believe in God’s miracles and that God’s miracles will continue to happen in our lives as believers and in according to His will and purpose. Can you believe that Moses parted the Red Sea? Can you believe that Jonah lived in the belly of a big whale. There are 3 types of believers I.e. non believers, believers and fused to believe. The type of believers will determine the signs or none that will accompany us in our lives as seen in the recollection of Apostles in Mark: 16. 17. And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; 18. they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. The meaning of things or good signs in Greek is Semeion.

You need to believe that it is possible that God’s miracles can happen. Provided you believe that you are God’s children and God is with you as in John: 14. 12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father. Mark: 16. 20. And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Amen.

Another requirement is believing in that Jesus is the son of God and believing that Christ Jesus has return to His Father and He has delivered us the power of the Holy Spirit to work miracles as seen in Acts: 2. 32. This Jesus did God raise up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33. Being therefore by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath poured forth this, which ye see and hear. Great power in Greek is Dunamis as mentioned in Matthew: 11. 20. Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not. Matthew: 14. 2. and said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore do these powers work in him.

We pray to become God’s vessel of miracles. With our eyes of believer, we can see hope. We pray that God’s love and mercies fills our lives. So that we can speak of God’s good news and spread the gospel to the world as in Matthew: 28. 19. Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Bible Study on Edification Through Speaking Mysteries In Tongues And Empowering For The Spiritual Battlefield By The Holy Spirit Of God according to Acts 1:4-5, John 14:12, Acts 2:4,38, Acts 4:31, Acts 19:6, 1 Corinthians 14:1-4

Jesus said that I have to go back to his father, but I will send somebody called the Holy Spirit to help. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is important, even Jesus reminded His disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit until it is given to them before departing as in Acts: 1. 4. and, being assembled together with them, he charged them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, [said he], ye heard from me: Acts: 1. 5. For John indeed baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized in the Holy Spirit not many days hence.

According to Jesus the importance of the Holy Spirit is that the Holy Spirit can do even greater things than Him. Because the Bible promises us that we can do greater things in life as in John: 14. 12. Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.

We should stop depending on ourselves but rely on the Holy Spirit as when we are baptized with the Holy Spirit, we will receive power from high to do great works for God. As followers of Christ we are made conquerors and victors in the name of Jesus. Jesus will not send us into the spiritual battle field without given us the proper equipments, armour and weapons. For God wants us to have all the things we need in serving His kingdom.

The gift of the Holy Spirit is freely given and not earned by the grace of God. Although the gifts is free to those who qualify, we still need to receive these gifts of the Holy Spirit according to Acts: 2. 38. And Peter [said] unto them, Repent ye, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ unto the remission of your sins; and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

One of these gifts are the ability to speak in tongues. It is not the only signs of baptism by the Holy Spirit, but it is part of the whole package of being baptized by the Holy Spirit. However, one doesn’t have to be able speak in tongues by being baptized by the Holy Spirit, but it is frequently used as an evidence of the baptism by the Holy Spirit as in Acts: 2. 4. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts: 4. 31. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken wherein they were gathered together; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spake the word of God with boldness. Acts: 19. 6. And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

The importance of speaking in tongue is that it is the spiritual language, where no man can understand, in order to communicate with God and the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, it helps us to strengthen and edifieth ourselves and the church of Christ as in 1 Corinthians: 14. 1. Follow after love; yet desire earnestly spiritual [gifts], but rather that ye may prophesy. 2. For he that speaketh in a tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God; for no man understandeth; but in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. 3. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men edification, and exhortation, and consolation. 4. He that speaketh in a tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. We have the choice whether to speak in tongues or in human language, however when everyone speak in tongues, we create a spiritual atmosphere. Furthermore, speaking in tongues is a weapon used in spiritual warfare to fight against the forces of Satan.

Stop running into the battlefield without the weapon by the Holy Spirit, start depending on the Holy Spirit. With the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we will get empowered and thus overcome all obstacles like we never see before. Greater things we will do only by the Holy Spirit saith in the Word of God.
