BLOG 46 BELIEVING AND RECEIVING

BLOG 46                 BELIEVING And RECEIVING

God has already blessed us with healing, prosperity, and salvation. Sozo: completeness, wholeness, and soundness! Our salvation includes all of these.  Soteria,(Greek word for) the God kind of life. Believe this and receive it done in the name of Jesus. We are complete in Him and our inward man (spirit) is renewed day by day. Colossians 2:10, 2 Corinthians 4:16
As God’s dear children, we are blessed beyond measure. Colossians 1:22 reads, “In the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and unblamable (innocent) and unreprovable(not deserving reproof, blame expressed to the face)) in His sight.” Others may accuse you of wrong doing, but not God! Once born again by the Spirit of God, He no longer sees you in any sin or wrong doing. When He looks at you, all that He sees is you covered by the blood of Jesus.
You have been blessed with all this, but unless you believe and receive, it will make no difference in your life.
When Jesus shed His precious blood on the cross, you were forgiven for past, present, and future sins. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If you keep sinning on purpose, could it be that you were not actually and factually saved from destruction? Because a truly born again person that was saved by the Spirit of God does not keep sinning. You have a new nature now; the nature of God. Regeneration by Holy Spirit recreates your spirit man for you to become a new creation in Christ. One that NEVER existed before. 2 Corinthians 5:17  In Titus 3:5, 6, & 7, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which He shed (poured out) on us abundantly (richly) through Jesus Christ our Savior; That being justified (cleared of all guilt) by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”  People can make mistakes, but it is an honest mistake and it grieves the child of God.  It is an open door for satan to come against you when you do this continually.
You have to purpose to walk in love and joy by the power of the Holy Ghost. Being kind and gentle and meek in all your dealings. Galatians 5:22,23 Walk in the spirit and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. Galatians 5:16 Being carnal minded is an enemy against God because it opposes Him. Romans 8:7 He is a spirit and we must worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:24
We have revelation of all that Jesus accomplished on the cross for us and we know what a hefty price He paid. Because of this, we belong to God; we are not our own. We gladly make the choice to give Him our life and will. We desire His will to be our will. We are not robots; we choose to follow Him and His way. Holy Spirit has our mind, not satan. It is our choice to listen and to obey our Father. As you see all the corruption and evil that is going on in the world, you are very humbled and thankful, knowing that you have a Heavenly Father who takes care of you.
Jesus healed everyone who believed. He told the woman with the issue of blood; “your faith has made you whole.” She heard about Jesus, believed, and said, “If I can only touch the hem of His garment.” This was faith in action. In teaching: 1st. comes believing. 2nd. comes receiving. 3rd. comes an action. Jesus taught, He preached, then He healed them all. All who believed! Even Jesus could do no mighty works in His own home town because of their unbelief.
God sent His only begotten Son to earth to save His people, but because He is so good, He will not force you to believe and receive what He has to offer. He allows you to choose whom you will serve and whom you will believe. Of course the devil wants you to believe his lies. The fact is, all that he has are lies!
How can you grow to this kind of believing and receiving? The answer is so simple. By reading and studying the Bible, you will see that the scriptures are alive with wisdom and truth. Hebrews 4:12 The more that you read, the more you will learn and believe. Your whole world will be filled with light. The light of the Gospel which contains God’s promises for you. The Gospel is both salvation and healing. You do not have one without the other. Nor can you believe and receive without hearing the Word. See Romans 10:17. You must hear God’s Word to believe and to have faith. God’s Word produces faith in those who meditate on it. The Word of God is supernatural and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth. He is the One who leads you to all truth.
God’s kingdom is made up with people who are child-like, not childish! They are child-like in their faith and trust. They believe what God tells them in His Word and receives it wholeheartedly. Choose and pursue child-likeness in everything. Jesus says in Matthew 18, verses 3 & 4, …”Except you be converted, and become as as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Your faith in God is the key to your receiving. Faith is trust and this brings protection. You become totally persuaded that what God says in His Word is the truth. The truth that we are to live by.
All through the Gospels in the new testament Jesus says, “Be it done unto you according to your faith” and “Your faith has made your whole.” Believing and receiving has to do with your faith. Faith expands as it is used. All of God’s children have been given the same measure of faith it says in Romans 12:3.  Exercising your faith will result in growth.(just as a muscle will grow when exercised) Jesus’ disciples were not given any more faith than you have been given. Although they were living and walking with Jesus everyday, they still had to develop their faith in believing and receiving.
“As a man thinks in his heart so is he.” Proverbs 23:7 What you think about what Jesus says to you concerning who you are in Him, and what ability He has given you, will determine how you will fulfill the potential and plans he has for your destiny. Believing His Word in child-likeness will make it easy to receive. If God’s Word says it-believe it. It is that simple because it is true whether you believe it or not. Your unbelief does not change the Word, but the Word will change your unbelief.
Oh, what a deal! If you would like to get in on this wonderful deal (plan) that our Holy Spirit offers on the behalf of our Father God, just humble yourself and call on the name of Jesus to be saved. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13  Now, let me make myself clear.  You do not just decide in your head that you want to be saved; it is a wooing by the Holy Spirit.  Someone has been praying for your salvation and Holy Spirit begins to tug at your heart. You can not go to God on your own.  God has to call you.

This is Faith Cabin saying bye for now. You are blessed-believe it!! Love and smiles. (:
