Text: 2 Timothy 1:5, Ezekiel 2:2
Everything God does comes through the channel of faith. Grace can’t deliver outside of faith
We are in need because we don’t know what we need.
The virtue of faith is the same across generations, it has generational transmission; Psalm 145:4, 2 Timothy 1:5. We are called to contend for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. The spirit of faith enables you to believe all things without shaking. You’re getting a treasure that no skill under heaven can access.
Dominion is only possible with the spirit of Faith at work. Everything God does comes through the channel of Faith. We’re saved by Grace through faith.
Every time we gather we have the spirit of just men with us operating in certain individual’s life; Hebrews 12:23. The spirit of faith puts you above struggles, strains, and fear.
The virtue of the spirit of faith is seen across generations; 2 Corinthians 4:13, Psalms 145:4, 2 Timothy1:5.
Faith has generation transmission and we’re called to contend for the Faith that was once delivered to the Saint.
There’s no way you can experience transference if you’re not completely focused. The spirit of Faith enables you to believe all things that come out of God’s mouth. Faith put you to rest amid the storm. The spirit of Faith is the same for all generations; Hebrews 12:22 – 24.
The spirit of Faith puts you above struggles and fear!
Why do we need the spirit of faith?
1. It is the most dreaded weapon of the devil; Luke 18:8.
Faith will be under attack in the last few days!
The spirit of faith responds spontaneously supernaturally; 1 Corinthians 15:26.
Thank God for the word of Faith, the word of faith gathers scriptures. It brought us to where we are now, but we’re moving forward!
Faith delivers maximally by love; Matthew 24:12, Galatians 5:6, Psalms 110:3, 11, Daniel 7: 25, 27, Micah 4:2.
Where the spirit of faith is, fear cannot survive.
Faith delivers maximally by love, that’s why Satan wants to dampen your love so he can weaken your faith. It is the love of God that empowers faith for maximum delivery.
Everybody needs the spirit of faith to prevail in these hard times of uncertainties; Habakkuk 2:4
The spirit of faith can put you above the circumstances.
I knew COVID-19 couldn’t prevail, darkness can’t prevail over light; Psalm 110:2-3. All kingdom and dominion under heaven shall be given to the saints, so Satan is scared; Daniels 7:27, Micah 4:1-2
We are going to torment Satan and subdue these kingdoms and our principal armour is the spirit of faith; Daniel 7:26
Daniel subdued the lions because he believed in his God. We’re in need because we don’t know what we need; Ecc10:15.
The spirit of faith is the principal armour to subdue kingdoms!
Jesus is coming for a reigning church, not a beggarly church!
Fear is a spirit and wherever the Spirit of faith is, the spirit of fear cannot survive. Fear is a spirit of darkness, faith is the spirit of God, God is light, and darkness can’t be there. The spirit of faith allays all fears, the spirit of faith and dear can never co-exist.
Characteristics of the Spirit of Faith
1. It is God-confident; Philippians 4:13.
2. It is word-confident; Romans 4:19-21.
The integrity of the word is His confidence. The word comes, and your confidence rises with it. Word-confident faith is one of the characteristics of the spirit of faith. It makes the believer’s word confident.
3. It empowers believers to believe all things; Acts 24:14
It makes one not to argue the scriptures, you are living above the realm of doubts believing all things that come to you from the Word or the Lord. It keeps doubts away from your territory.
4. It strengthens our inner man to remain unshakeable whenever confronted.
You need immovable faith to move your mountain; Mark 11:23, Hebrews 11:11
The spirit of faith strengthens its career to remain unshakeable when confronted by unsurmountable mountains. When strength comes on your inside and you become unshakeable, every mountain will move.
5. It boosts our expectations for answers to prayers; 1 Kings 18:40 – 44.
No prayer flies without faith, don’t pray for prayer’s sake anymore o, pray for answer’s sake. The value of prayer is the answer. Answer expectant prayer is boosted by the spirit of faith. Things might not look like they can change but you have the God of all possibilities to handle every matter.
The faith of Elijah withstood the fire of the Baal priests. Stop praying for prayer’s sake, pray for answer’s sake. As you encounter the spirit of faith, your prayer life will change.
6. The spirit of faith is action-driven, it moves you in the direction of what you claim to believe; James 2:18, Genesis 12:4.
When you move in response to His word, He will give personal instructions.
Right now, the word and the spirit are entering you!
7. The spirit of faith commands the supernatural at will
Your life will never lack the supernatural again!
It takes faith to enter into the realm of rest amid the storms; Mark 4:38
Exodus 4:17, Mark 16:20.
Manifestations of the spirit of faith
1. It empowers us to respond spontaneously to the spirit of life Matthew 10:20.
2. It speaks the unspeakable, it speaks things that people are scared of.
3. It dares the undare-able; Hebrews 11:29
No one dares the fiery furnace but the spirit of faith.
4. It commands exploits – it gets things done that may never have been done. It commands outstanding feats and triggers things that eyes hath not seen nor ears heard.
Seemingly ordinary people become breadwinners of nations, they become solution providers to the nations of the world through faith.
God will begin to do in your life beyond all you can ever think or imagine! Amen!
5. The spirit of faith triggers surprises, David as a teenager confronted Goliath and brought him down, without going through military training. He became chief of the army staff of Israel, and he behaved himself wisely
The spirit of faith at work in David brought Goliath down and turned to flight the Philistines; Hebrews 11:24
6. It confers peace that passes all knowledge; Hebrews 4:3, 9
How to access transference of the spirit of faith
If only you know the forces that fear you, the forces will go, it’s just your ignorance they are taking advantage of.
1. Interestingly, it is God who’s the umpire of transference of the spirit, not man, otherwise man would have given it to any man he wills and not give the one he does not like.
God is the umpire behind the transference of spirit including the spirit of faith. If your heart is not right you can’t get it.
Let your heart be pure and right; 2chronicles 16:9,1peter 5:5.
Let your heart be right!
Reset your heart, reposition your heart, because God looks into the heart to determine what He puts in your life.
If you will crave it, every gift of the spirit answers to a thirst. We all have the word of faith, but how many of us have the spirit of faith?
You must have a genuine crave; John 4:38.
We are bible practitioners, transference is impossible without a pure heart.
Hagin must have said some things I do not understand but I have never found him in any error.
I’m yet to pick anything wrong in Copeland, I never found an error in Baba Adeboye, I’m connected.
Let your heart be pure, let your heart be right!
The reason our success has not been trapped is because we are successful by the application of the truth; Numbers 11:16 – 25.
2. Identify a carrier; Matthew 25:9, 2 Kings 2:9.
Identify the carrier of the spirit of faith, not a preacher; Matthew 25:9, Rom1:11.
Receive the person and the ministry of the carrier to gain access. Crave for what he carries and stay connected for the continuous flow.
Note: Proximity does not connote connectivity.
Keep feeding the spirit of faith with the word. Feed this treasure on the word so as not to turn to trash
3. Receive the person and the ministry of the carrier to gain access.
Everybody saw Elijah as a killer, but Elisha saw him as his source.
4. Crave for what he carries.
5. Stay connected for continuous flow.
The day a water-borne pipe disconnects from the main supply, it goes dry. It’s a heart-to-heart affair; it’s not human worship, its covenant sense, proximity is not equal to connectivity.
In the name of the Lord Jesus, you will not lose the treasure you’re connecting with.
6. Keep feeding the spirit of faith in the word; Habakkuk 2:4
Feed this treasure to stay alive, if you don’t feed the spirit of faith, it will be turned to trash; Hebrews 10:38.
7. Engage a son ship tie with the carrier; Proverbs 13:22, 2 Kings 2:12, 2 Kings 6:12.
You don’t struggle for the DNA of your biological father, you can’t share the DNA of a pastor or prophet because he’s not a father to you.
A son ship tie is the most stable access for maintenance of flow. You take cover by connecting to your God-ordained father, you don’t go through what they went through anymore; they went through it for you so you can ride triumphantly. You can’t be the father of yourself, you can’t give birth to yourself.
Solomon had no one over him, people run into trouble because no one can talk to them. God has protocols, He called Joshua yet sent him to Eleazar for counsel.
