1 A Life Changing Experience Emmanuel Temple Church Bible Study The Faith Clinic Chapter 11

2 Let Faith Act Definition of Faith:  A strong belief or trust in someone or something  A firm belief in something for which there is no proof; complete trust Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

3 Let Faith Act Faith demonstrates to the eye of the mind the reality of those things that cannot be discerned by the eye of the body. Faith is the firm agreement of the soul to the divine revelation that God is true. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

4 Let Faith Act It is the full approval of all that God has revealed as holy, just, and good. It is designed to serve the believer instead of sight, and to be to the soul, all that the senses are to the body. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

5 Let Faith Act Hebrews 11:1 11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

6 Let Faith Act In the phrase "faith is the substance of things hoped for," Paul is not really defining what faith is, but rather he is showing what faith does in an operative sense: Faith undergirds what we hope for. faithhope Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

7 Let Faith Act Substance means "that which stands under." Faith is the foundation for what we hope, the foundation for our relationship with God and everything that it implies within His purpose. Faith is the very beginning of everything that really matters spiritually.God Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

8 Let Faith Act By saying that it is the "evidence" or "assurance" of things not seen, the author comes much closer to defining what faith is. In its simplest form, faith is merely belief. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

9 Let Faith Act As our understanding becomes more complex and operative, when we begin to put faith to work, it becomes "confidence“. And finally, in its best form, when it becomes fully operational, it is "trust“. In this trust, is the full measure of faith, that is alive and works within our relationship with God. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

10 Faith In Action Mark 5:25-34  25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,  26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

11 Faith In Action  27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.  28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

12 Faith In Action  29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.  30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

13 Faith In Action  31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?  32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

14 Faith In Action  33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.  34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

15 Let Faith Act Faith has two elements:  Being convinced of the truth  Seizing the truth Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

16 Let Faith Act The woman with the issue of blood said within herself, “If I could but touch the border of His clothes, I know I will be made whole.” Because she believed, all she needed to do was act. When she acted, she got the results that she believed she would. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

17 Let Faith Act She believed; she spoke; she moved; she pressed through the crowd; she touched His clothes; she was made well by her faith. Belief is not enough; we must act on what we believe or we will never see the results of our belief. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

18 Let Faith Act Faith sees what God is saying and acts accordingly. It doesn’t operate in the future; faith operates in the now! Faith cannot afford to rely on the evidence. It must rest in the Word of God. All it wants to know is whether the Lord says it will be. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

19 Let Faith Act Faith must act - it cannot live without activity. Faith must have some outlet - or it will die. Inactivity is a faith killer. Faith cannot and will not lie dormant. Faith must have action. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

20 Faith In Action Mark 2: 1-5  1 And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.  2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

21 Faith In Action  3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.  4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

22 Faith In Action  and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.  5 When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

23 Let Faith Act True faith and strong faith may work in various ways; but it shall be accepted and approved by Jesus Christ. Faith will not only be rewarded by the miraculous; it also expresses itself in thanksgiving for the miracle. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

24 Let Faith Act Matthew 17:20  20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

25 Let Faith Act “Faith that can move mountains” is not meant to imply a faith that can literally move literal mountains. The point Jesus was making is that even a little bit of faith—faith the size of a tiny mustard seed—can overcome mountainous obstacles in our lives.

26 Let Faith Act Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

27 Let Faith Act As you journey through life, you can see faith do the same things that seeds do. They grow into something much bigger than what they started. Your faith –trust in God– will also grow and you will be amazed by what He does with you. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

29 Strong Expressions of Faith Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

30 Who Are We? We are made up of three parts: Body – our bones and blood Soul – our intellect, our will, our emotions Spirit – our life, our being Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

31 Let Faith Act Two Kinds of Faith:  Natural Faith  Supernatural Faith Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

32 Let Faith Act Natural faith is defined in the dictionary as a confident belief in the truth, value or trustworthiness of a person, an idea, or a thing. It is a natural ability in the area of our souls. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

33 Let Faith Act Supernatural faith doesn’t rest on logical proof or material evidence, instead it’s based on a secure belief in God and in His word. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

34 Let Faith Act Supernatural faith is from our spirits – not our minds. It is believing and acting on God’s word without questioning, or trying to reason it out. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

35 Let Faith Act Two Expressions of Faith:  Prayer  Thanksgiving Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

36 Strong Expressions of Faith When we spend time in prayer, we confess that God is still on the throne and in the blessing business. Prayer is such a strong expression of faith because it addresses itself to the invisible things of God. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

37 Strong Expressions of Faith In prayer, we communicate with someone we cannot see but we believe, beyond any doubt, that He is and that He hears what we are saying. When we engage in prayer we display works which are indicative of our faith. We must pray in faith for our prayers to be answered. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

38 Strong Expressions of Faith Psalms 34: 15, 17 15 The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry. 17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

39 Strong Expressions of Faith Over and over in Jesus’ earthly ministry, He responded to faith. He said,  “Your faith has made you well.”  “According to your faith…”  “O woman, great is your faith.”  “If you have faith and don’t doubt…”  “Have faith in God.” Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

40 Strong Expressions of Faith Everything we receive from God, we receive by faith ---- our salvation, baptism in the Holy Spirit, righteousness, healings, blessings, supernatural wisdom and knowledge. We must pray in faith for our prayers to be answered. We must believe, and to believe we must know God’s word and hear His voice. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

41 Strong Expressions of Faith The second great expression of faith is the offering of thanksgiving. The word thank you is an indication that something has been received or accepted by faith. When we offer thanks unto the Lord, we are expressing faith action that says we believe He did, or is going to do, what He said. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

42 Let Faith Act Enemies of Faith:  Natural Senses  Doubt/Unbelief Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

43 Let Faith Act Our natural senses are the strongest enemies of faith. Trusting what we see, hear, and touch more than we trust the Word of God, will defeat us. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

44 Let Faith Act Doubt is an enemy of faith in the sense that it is an act of the natural mind. It means to be undecided or skeptical; to tend to disbelieve, or distrust; to regard as unlikely; and to lack certainty. Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience

45 Let Faith Act Faith can be strengthened and it can become weak. Weak faith leads to fear and inaction. We strengthen our faith by hearing and studying the Word of God, which can help us see God's faithfulness in the past and His solid promises for the future. Real, living faith motivates our actions.strengthened Emmanuel Temple Church of the Apostolic Faith…A Life Changing Experience
