Notes From: Life Christian University Faith Study Course

Hebrews 11:1

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen

I. How Faith Comes & Where it Begins

 

A.     So faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17 )

B.     Faith Begins where the Will of God is known

            C.    The Will of God is spiritual discerned  (1 Corinthians 2:14 )

D.    We must rightly divide the Word of Truth  (2 Timothy 2:15 )  

 

 II. Five Infallible Steps of Faith

1.     Mediation – reading, hearing, pondering, and speaking the word in order to gain faith. Some refer to mediation as “confession unto faith”

                                    speak to oneself

C.   Meleto (Greek) – to revolve in mind

3.     Prayer – Releases your power to receive by faith  

A.   Mark 11:23-24

B.   Mark 9:2

4.     Confession – speaking the Word after you have believed it.  It is

                           also referred to as “the confession of faith”.

A.   Confession is where the battle is won or lost

1.    When the enemy come to taunt you after the you have prayed the “prayer of faith”, you must continue to resist him with the same Word you received by faith. (Hebrews 4: 14-16, Hebrew 10:19 -23)

5.     Possession – Possession is the manifestation of the promise

A.   When it arrives, it no longer takes faith it yours
