    It is true without faith we cannot experience much of God. The problem is that a lot of people have faith in the god of religion, but not a God of truth and love, yet the good thing about true God is that we have faith in the truth of love and no faith in the lie smearing our God with our fallen seeing and hearing the truth in action.

    Faith in true God will never disappoint us.

    There is a signs gifts thread though, if you ever want to take a look. Let me find the link for you... People post dreams and talk on tongues, things like that.

    It does that sometimes on Facebook. Especially when I try to use a frame. Have no idea why. LOL

    Dear Jay,
    For we have heard, faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not yet seen.

    What do we hope for ? We hope for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. So when Christ who is our life appears, we will also appear with Him in glory.

    The substance of things we hope for, are found in Christ Jesus, our Lord, that is, the promise by faith in Christ Jesus given to us who believe.

    What then is the evidence ? Truly, truly we have heard what the Lord, His holy apostles and prophets have spoken what they knew and have borne witness of to what they have perceived. Yes, we have accepted their testimonies.

    By hearing of faith, what has been spoken — we receive the Holy Spirit. So having begun in the Spirit, we will be perfected in the Spirit.

    So what is the power of faith? Isn’t the power of God ? This is what we have heard:

    the power of God, -2 Timothy 1:8
    who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of His own purpose and grace, which He gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, -2 Timothy 1:9
    and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, -2 Timothy 1:10

    For the Lord have said:
    He who has ears, let him hear." -Matthew 13:9

    May the Lord Jesus Christ be with our spirit. Grace be with us who believe. To God be the glory. Amen.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good." (1 Thessalonians 5:21)

    So, God our Father does want us to make sure about everything.

    And I understand this means to make sure with God . . . all the time. Because God does desire to share this personally with every one of us who are His children.

    Now . . . about testing that message > it does not name Jesus.

    But yes we can hear God. Plus, we can experience God personally working in us, to have us doing what He wants.

    "for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure." (Philippians 2:13)

    Therefore, God does not only talk to us, but in us He personally shares with us, working in even our wills to do what He desires . . . to do with us. So, it would be erroneous to think God might at times tell us to do something, but then leave us on our own to do it while we figure out other things to do until He tells us something else.

    He wants to rule us all the time, in sharing with Him in His own peace > Colossians 3:15.

    So, if I am right . . . have we heard this??

    I believe both of those statements. Bible says:

    [​IMG]

    It takes faith to believe who God says I am rather then what man says. Someone can think positive things, but it takes faith to believe God says them. But everything is backed up in His Word. I know something bad like, "I am worthless" is not from God, because His Word calls believers chosen and loved. But I do believe that the spiritual realm is a lot more powerful then the physical realm. Our "body suits" are temporary. The spiritual where the warfare is right now, that is what is going to last forever. Our spirits are who we truly are.

    Our Apostle Paul says we need >

    "faith working through love" > in Galatians 5:6.

    So, yes faith can have great power over the human mind.

    But, like I say, "they" did not mention Jesus. And do we have faith which is connected with how God's love works in us and our lives?

    There are people who talk so much about how faith and God's word can get things for you an individual, but they do not say how in Christ we are being conformed to the image of Jesus . . . by being perfected in God's own love curing our character >

    "Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4:17)

    This does not say we have boldness because we think it and claim it, but because God has changed us in our character so we are like His own Son Jesus. And this, I would say, is the main focus of Biblical ministry, as Paul our example says > Colossians 1:28-29.

    Ones can talk so much about how faith can get you your miracle in your life, but they do not talk about how we as God's family minister grace (1 Peter 4:9-10) to one another, so we are being changed to become how Jesus is. But, instead, ones only talk about what label to put on yourself, and how to get God to do things for you.

    Yes, God's word says,

    "as he thinks in his heart, so is he" > in Proverbs 23:7.

    Satan thought he was great. But what mattered was his intentions, and what he was trying to do about what he thought of himself.

    Peter boasted how he was so loyal to Jesus, but he failed and denied Jesus three times.

    So, we need to think what is true, plus do what God has us doing about it.

    And if my thinking has me mainly about myself and who I am . . . this can be isolating me to be my own god, possibly.

    Jesus has us sharing and functioning as family, helping one another, caring about others being blessed as much as ourselves being blessed. Plus He warns us against picking and choosing whom we prefer love >

    "For if you love those who love you, what reward have you?" > in Matthew 5:46.

    We can pick and choose whom we want to use to get our treasure pleasures, in which case our preference is really for pleasure and security for keeping it.

    So, does our faith work by means of God's all-loving love in us? Does faith have us being changed by God into the image of Jesus so we are loving the way Jesus on the cross was loving with hope for any person, at all? Love "hopes all things", we have in 1 Corinthians 13:7. Jesus on the cross had faith for what is possible with God for any and all people, even the most evil. And we are commanded to love like Christ on the cross > this is a Bible basic of how we become and love, because of "faith working through love" >

    "And walk in love, as Christ has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma." (Ephesians 5:2)

    Yes, Jesus on the cross shows how God loves us unconditionally; and this is our example required also for us . . . so commanded :) Jesus growing in our hearts shares this with us so we become and love like Jesus.

    We do not get here, just by juke-boxing God with money seeds and thoughts about ourselves. God's thoughts toward us are without number (Psalm 40:5) and often better than we have been thinking about getting and doing (1 Corinthians 2:9, Ephesians 3:20-21, 1 Timothy 3:14) :)

    In His Sermon on the Mount, right away Jesus starts with . . . how to be . . . in our character . . . not what label to think and to put on ourselves >

    "poor in spirit"

    "meek"

    "merciful"

    "pure in heart"
