The Faith of God Part 1
Jude:20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
Daniel 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
I’ve been noticing Scriptures Speaking of the Faith of Christ and the Faith of God which is perfect faith. If The Lord God says He will do something or something will happen, then He has faith in Himself that it will, because in actuality, it is finished already (in the words of Christ). But what I am beginning to recognize, that is of an interest to me is, we as saints have access to utilize this Faith of Christ and of God on our behalf. Jude mentioned utilizing your most holy faith. Those two words “most Holy”, resounds with Daniel 9:24 where an angel obviously referring to The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ calling Him “the most Holy”. So my most Holy faith is actually the Faith of Christ. Jude, giving technology on a way to access this most Holy Faith by praying in The Holy Ghost; which is actually not you praying but The Lord Jesus interceding for us. Us: as in the Body of Christ. Hence the wording building up “yourselves” rather than your self.
Another scripture reference for The Holy Ghost praying with and for us, helping us utilize our most Holy faith.
Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Although taking out of context; Romans 3:3-4 uses a very interesting analogy:
3 For what if some did not believe*? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4 God forbid*: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
Even if you don’t believe what God had already determined, your lack of unbelief cannot deactivate the faith of God. Because it benefits or concerns you; you may not be able to believe it can happen. But Psalms 23:3 confirms, God may be doing it for selfish reasons.
3 He restores my soul: He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
You maybe under the impression, that your soul is beyond repair, but to the One who constructed your soul to begin with, a restoration is simple. Thus your unbelief cannot make the Faith of God of none effect, in this respect or in any circumstance for that matter.
More profound information is declared in Romans 3:20-22
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no* flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
All this time, I thought I was doing the righteous thing by having faith in my faith for The Lord God to do a thing. No wonder why the things I was believing for didn’t manifest sometimes. I should’ve been doing the righteousness of God by believing through the faith of Christ and of God.
Colossians 2:12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein* also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
Now, I don’t care how much faith anyone has: only the faith of the operation of God can spiritually bury us with Christ, spiritually raise us with Christ and raise Christ up from the dead! Here’s an example of how this faith was accessed, worked through and in operation.
2 Samuel 5:19 And David enquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand.
- Accessed: David enquired of The Lord. First things first.
- David waited for instructions: “Go up: for I WILL DOUBTLESS deliver”. Who is doubtless in this passage? David expressed uncertainty asking “should I or should I not” in a sense. The Lord God expresses certainly the faith of God “I will doubtless!” The story is concluded as such: 2 Samuel 5:20 And David came to Baalperazim, and David smote them there, and said, The LORD hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters.
- Always give The Lord God the glory (hold up I’m remembering a time when I didn’t, so I’m repenting). Now, the narrative says David smote them; but David knowing better, righteously confirms “The LORD has broken forth upon my enemies before me”
- Ladies and gentlemen, this is the faith of the operation of God: The Faith of God.
