Authority & Substance

Posted on Posted in Character, Faith

                                                       … of faith!

The authority of faith…
… is the (logos) Word of God.

Faith in the authority we have in Jesus’ name
to speak to that mountain (Mark 11 23)
Not because of who we are,
but because of who He is,
… and who we are in Him!

      Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions,
      and over all the power of the enemy,
      and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
      Luke 10 19

*******
The substance of faith… (rhema)
… Abiding in Him and His words (rhema) abiding in you.

Faith in God and in God’s Word
… and all that He has done and prepared for
whoever comes to Him.

      But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
      for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
      and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
      Hebrews 11 6

As Jesus said …
      I am the vine, you are the branches.
      He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit;
      for without Me you can do nothing.
      …
      If you abide in Me, and My words (rhema) abide in you,
      you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
      John 15 5,7
