You have a lot of control by your faith. if you have faith, then yep, get a promise and stand on it no matter what you see with your eyes, hear with your ears, feel, or think, and watch your problems melt. Your going to use your faith one way or another anyway. When you use Gods promises (based on faith in what Jesus has done) mix it with your faith then together you control your reality in the way he would like it to be. Gods words are the framework for 100% reality everywhere but here on earth he allows us some control based on what we believe. . Since we are in Gods image and class we are allowed to determine a great deal of our reality by the same way he does. Words + belief = reality for the most part. There is a overall framework of reality that is immune to that but there is a vast amount that we determine, thought by thought (by adding belief to those thoughts.) If you truly believe you are a looser you will filter everything through that belief until it becomes a reality. If you believe your destined for success you will filter every thought through that and not allow set backs to derail you. You will eventually succeed. “a mans heart colors everything he sees” hears or feels”. what is in your heart became reality by your mixing belief with it. We make reality inside ourselves by believing or disbelieving words. God makes reality by speaking word and believing them, even when they contradict what is currently there when he speaks them. “he calls those things that are non existent like they all ready existed”. We are the same sort of beings, made in his image and this is the way we all work even if you do not know it. To get into this reality someone has to open the door by giving weight to his words. Then Gods reality comes to earth. Whatever door you open in heaven is opened on earth, whatever door you close in heaven is closed on earth. Gods promises + faith are the keys to open heavens reality here. God put men in charge of the planet and they can give up their reality to whatever spirits i.e. words they believe for the most part. “The one whom you yield to obey he will become your master.” Obey a urge from a spiritual power and you become their slave or servant. Believe a thought from a spiritual power and for the most part it will become your reality, even if its not really real, or Gods will for you. There are two spiritual forces working here that are both saying they are truth. One shouts and uses force, on is a still small voice that pushes involuntary obedience on no one. One “truth” is the one the majority of the world listens to and one “truth” is the one very few people ever find. God is a God (truth) who hides him self, but will let him self be found by anyone that seriously looks for him. If you brush him off when he speaks to you in his still small voice he won’t force himself on you, or make fun of you. the other “truth” is not like that. http://biblehub.com/isaiah/11-3.htm
God is light –he is light and in him is no darkness at all
God is love
Light is love
KEEP YOURSELF in the love of God
IF we walk (the just shall walk by faith) in the light (God, love ) as he is in the light we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Christ continually cleanses us from all sin. ( righteousness )
the effect of righteousness is peace
with the heart a man believes unto righteousness
Love believes all things
Jesus said that a witness to him was in the world but that the world did not recognize him. He is the spirit of truth. There is another spirit of “truth” that is not truth at all. They even feel different. God is truth. The devil is called the God of this world. There are then two “truths.”
The devil wants to reign by getting people to give him the weight of truth. There is a real spirit of truth and it is different from the spirit of “truth” that rules the world. The fake truth comes behind silly ideas like “evolution” to give them weight. He tries to convince you with spiritual weight or force. For instance, if someone told you you would never amount to something that may be lodged in your heart. It may be backed up by a feeling. It should be replaced by what faith in what God says “I am God’s workmanship (in the Greek workmanship says “poem”) created in Christ Jesus for good works,” and “I am accepted in the beloved.” Give weight to that by faith to the word despite the past or what you feel like. To believe what any other thought says about you is to give that the weight of “truth”. You have to listen to him and give weight to HIS words. Jesus said if you continue in my words you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Lies bind, truth sets free. Trusting Christ’s words puts you in his kingdom and takes you out of the devils. Jesus said be careful how you hear because with the same measure that you hear will be measured back to you. HE meets our needs according to his riches in glory (weight) through Christ Jesus. The anointed word of God mixed with faith.
The devil is all around you in thoughts, pictures, feelings (or spirit). The word needs to be your shielding and place of truth between you and thoughts that come in from the atmosphere. In Peter it says “an idle mind is a devils workshop.” Keeping you mind occupied keeps him out. Meditating is good for this which in the Hebrew means “chew the cud”. Another is making melody in your heart to the Lord.
The master faith, the one that opens the door to God’s goodness is believing in what Jesus did on the cross. Everything stems from that truth.
You need to spirit of truth in you. Ask God.
Luke 11:1-13 “How much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
Once you ask you have done your part, he will do his part. No other validation is necessary. You have done your part, he will do his part. Every other thought that would try to talk you out of it is from the kingdom of this world. You need faith like a little child to get in Jesus said. Once you ask don’t look for any evidence other than what the word said. He will give it to you. You take it then before you see evidence.
I saw a post where Tom cruises video had briefly appeared on you tube. The powers that be over there yanked it off you tube but once something is let go on the web its out there.
Anyway in the comment section I put a comment on what Christianity is to me since most people were likening Christianity to Scientology. So here is my “Christianity in a nutshell.
Ephesians 2:1-3 (Amplified Bible)
1 AND YOU [He made alive], when you were dead (slain) by [your] trespasses and sins
2 In which at one time you walked [habitually]. You were following the course and fashion of this world [were under the sway of the tendency of this present age], following the prince of the power of the air. [You were obedient to and under the control of] the [demon] spirit that still constantly works in the sons of disobedience [the careless, the rebellious, and the unbelieving, who go against the purposes of God].
3 Among these we as well as you once lived and conducted ourselves in the passions of our flesh [our behavior governed by our corrupt and sensual nature], obeying the impulses of the flesh and the thoughts of the mind [our cravings dictated by our senses and our dark imaginings]. We were then by nature children of [God’s] wrath and heirs of [His] indignation, like the rest of mankind.
