THE UNSTOPPABLE FORCE OF FAITH
In this month’s edition of “Catch the Fire” I will be sharing with you the message titled ‘The Unstoppable Force of Faith’.
Faith is an unstoppable spiritual force; because it taps into God’s omnipotence.
When it comes to all round exploits and victories, faith gives the believer access to share the nature of Divinity and ability with God.
Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
God is the supreme Ruler of the universe; he is the only one in his class.
Everything is possible with Him, but faith in God brings you as Christians into this realm where nothing is impossible.
Mark 9:23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
So all things can become possible for you if you have faith.
Your faith empowers you to operate like God and prevail in all circumstances by his grace.
The Bible says this in the scripture below:
Psalm 119:18 Open my eyes, that I may see
Wondrous things from Your law
Faith is a direct product of spiritual illumination.
The depth of your understanding determines the quality of your faith.
Understanding is being able to hear what God is saying and necessarily being able to always see what he is saying.
Ephesians 1:17-18 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints
Proverbs 4:20-22 My son, give attention to my words;
Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;
Keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
Until you see what God is saying, you cannot experience it.
The foundation of faith is not laid in your heart until you see what God is saying
You don’t stop at hearing, you press until you see it.
Faith is automatic if you see what He’s saying.
Hebrews 11:17-19 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18 of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” 19 concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.
Faith is the operation of spiritual illumination and being able to see what others are hearing.
Your reluctance to obey divine instructions stems from your inability to see because no one doubts what he or she sees.
What we call lack of faith is actually lack of understanding.
Your obedience to God’s word is defined by your understanding of Him.
All that is required from you to experience the power of God is your act of faith.
Faith automatically releases God’s power into your situation
Luke 8:43-48 Now a woman, having a flow of blood for twelve years, who had spent all her livelihood on physicians and could not be healed by any, 44 came from behind and touched the border of His garment. And immediately her flow of blood stopped. 45 And Jesus said, “Who touched Me?” When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”
46 But Jesus said, “Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.” 47 Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately. 48 And He said to her, “Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
Jesus called her touch an act of faith.
So her faith caused a release of virtue or power of God.
Faith is God’s wisdom to give you access to His power, she touched, and power was released.
No one challenges the power of God.
No situation challenges His dominion.
Faith provokes the release of God’s power.
That woman’s flow of blood stopped the moment she triggered the power through her faith.
Every flow of shame and flow of humiliation in your life will stop now in Jesus name!
Faith is a spiritual force that can only be activated when you are spiritually alive. Until you have given your life to God by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you cannot operate in faith.
Make this simple prayer of confession of faith to give your life to Jesus now
Romans 10:9-10 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation
Lord Jesus, I believe that you are the Son of God. You died on the cross and rose on the third day for my sins.
I renounce Satan and all his works today. I accept you as my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart today. I give my life to you, in the name of Jesus!
Career Breakthrough by Obeying to Divine Instructions
“Our Pastor has always taught us about how cheaply God can answer our prayers when we pay attention to advancing the Kingdom; either by actively winning souls or praying for souls to be saved. I give God all the glory because He proved this to me in my life this week.
On Sunday, when Pastor gave us the April Prayer Cards and instructed us to daily pray the points listed on it, I made up my mind to actively participate in it. I took the prayer card to work and on my lunch break, I meditated on them and prayed the points as instructed.
Immediately after I was done praying, I received a call from a company I had applied to for a job over a year ago. It was for a position I desired so much but since I hadn’t heard from them in such a long time, I had given up on ever getting the job. To the glory of God, I was offered the position which pays twice more than I earn right now. Hallelujah!” ~~~~~ F.Ogundele
Miracle House Purchase
“The God we serve is a covenant-keeping God! When our Pastor announced the plan to purchase a church building for DLCC Stockton, we immediately took note of this and decided to sow a seed towards it. We desired to buy a house of our own and we believed that if we sowed into God’s kingdom, He would bless us with ours in return. At the end of July, we went to Pastor with the seed; which was part of what we had saved up as down payment for a house. He anointed our family with oil and prayed for us. We left in faith. Shortly after, we noticed everything that seemed difficult for us at the time became easy. Two weeks later, we saw the house we wanted and in faith, we started the process of buying it. Miraculously, the price of the house was suddenly lowered by a huge amount and we found out what we had left from our savings was more than enough for the down payment and closing costs. To the glory of God, we purchased the house in a effortless manner and we are living proof that sowing into the Kingdom works! Praise the Lord!” ~~~ J. Ugbiyobo
Divine Breakthrough in Court Case
“During one of our Sunday services, God’s servant gave a word of knowledge that someone was having a court case and prophesied by the Holy Spirit that it would go in their favor. I received that word and I believed it was sent directly to me since I had a case pending in court. I went to court on Jan 9th but the ruling did not go in my favor so I went back to God’s servant and he prophesied that the delay will be to my advantage. When I went to court again, I anointed myself and had my mantle wrapped around my hand. I texted God’s servant before I went in because I was a little nervous since my attorney was pressuring me to accept a deal I didn’t want. He responded to my text saying, “God’s favor will go with you in Jesus name”. During the entire court proceedings, the judge kept saying things that were not in my favor. However, at the last minute, the ruling turned around in my favor. Praise the Lord!”

Healed From Terminal Disease
“A few years ago, I was diagnosed with a terminal disease. The doctors told me I had to undergo a surgical procedure as treatment for the disease, or else I wouldn’t live long. However, a couple of days before the surgery was to take place, I tuned in to watch “Moment of Breakthrough” T.V Broadcast on KTLN. As Pastor Isaac was ministering the Word of God, a light beamed out of the T.V and hit me. Immediately, I started sweating profusely and by the time the sweating stopped, I was healed. When I went to the hospital a couple days later for the surgery, the doctors examined me and ran some tests again but couldn’t find a trace of the disease in my body. I was completely healed from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. Glory be to God!!!” ~~~~~ Yvette Rassam.
Ganglion Cyst Disappeared!
“On Friday after choir rehearsal, just before the Night of Miracles and Anointing Service, I had planned to go home and not stay for the program but somehow, the Holy Spirit told me to stay behind and I’m glad I obeyed. Two years ago, I started noticing a ganglion cyst, the size of a grapefruit, on my right hand. It was so big that when I clenched my hand, it would protrude. I had scheduled a surgery for Monday but at the Night of Miracle service, I decided to push the date forward by two weeks. During the anointing session, after Pastor anointed my head, he told us to put our hands on our heads. I took some of the anointing oil from my head and put it on the spot where the cyst was. The next day, I took my car for oil change and I reached my hand to get something from the space between the driver’s seat and the middle compartment. I noticed my hand went in all the way which was strange because, prior to this time, my hand couldn’t go down that hole because of the cyst. When I took my hand out of the space, I noticed the cyst was no longer there. God has completely healed me and I no longer have to undergo any surgery. To God be the glory!” ~~~~~ J.Onofe
