For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
Faith originates in heaven and begins to operate from there. The faith that you and I have came from there. When did it come to you?
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. -John 3:6.
When we are born again, it is at that time that we receive faith. Our faith did not come from a man or from an organization, it came from heaven. The faith that you have came from God.
In Mark 11:22, the Bible says: “And Jesus, responding, said, have faith in God.” In the original it says, “Have the faith of God.”
The Faith of God
Before you came to Jesus, you did not have faith, and I did not have faith. So how did I get saved? When I heard the word, faith came into my spirit. Otherwise you and I have no ability to believe. The faith that you and I have now came from Jesus. It originated from Him. You and I, we do not have an innate ability to believe. The old nature only has the ability to doubt.
Before you came to Christ, you could only doubt because you did not have faith. Now that you are born again, that you came to Jesus, you have God’s faith. Now your faith originates from another world. In other words, according to Romans 12:3, God has given us a measure of faith.
These are the signs that a person has, that truly has been born again:
1. True repentance.
2. Hunger for God.
3. Change and transformation.
4. Hate for sin
5. Hunger for holiness.
If you are truly born again, you hunger for God. You must seek God. You must search for God. If you were truly born from heaven, you must have a hate for sin, and a love for holiness.
The Early Church
In the early church, people were really converted because the message was not sold cheap. Today the message has been cheapened; there is no fear of God behind the message. People repented and they cried crocodile tears. When there is the fear of God behind the message, people will run to the altar and they will truly repent. Now, people come to church, go up to the altar, go home and go back to use drugs, watch pornography, and back to sin.
Where is the Power of God? Where is the fruit of repentance? Where is the hunger for God?
Don’t give me that old story, “I love Jesus.” If you love Jesus, then why did you go back to sin again? You came to church and now you’re going to go crawling back to sin?
When you want more of God, it is never enough. When you have true repentance, you want more of God.
Signs of new birth are the following: true repentance, change and transformation, hatred for sin and a love for holiness. If there is no change in your life then you must repent again. This is why we don’t have power in churches.
Revelation Brings Expectation
You have the faith from another world, so abstain yourself from speaking words of unbelief. You have no excuse to not believe God. Since faith has the atmosphere of heaven. When you speak faith from revelation, it produces a great expectation. When you speak faith from your head, it produces nothing. But if you speak faith from revelation, it will create in you an expectation.
In heaven there is continuous expectation, and the faith that you have came from there. Why, because in heaven, every second, God is revealing something new.
In the Old Testament the angels sing holy, holy, holy. The word holy means different, different, and different. The angels are in expectation: What is God going to reveal now?
Today there is no expectation because churches preach the same message all the time. In heaven, there is a continuous expectation because revelation always brings something new. If its not new, it is not a revelation. God is going to create an expectation for something new. With your faith you begin to create an expectation for healing or for expectation for miracles. So faith from revelation will produce an expectation. When you do not hear anything new, you do not have any expectation.
Faith is the Currency of Heaven
What you cannot believe, you cannot afford because faith is the currency of heaven. What you cannot believe, you cannot buy. In heaven you buy by faith, you sell by faith, you move by faith and you receive miracles by faith.
You have a currency greater than money, greater than fame, greater than your intellect and greater than your diploma. If you have faith, you can take it. Where is your faith? In heaven, what you cannot believe, you cannot buy.
Why did God give you faith?
God gave you faith in order for impossibilities to bow their knees. So that diseases will bow their knees. You have a currency, greater than money, greater than riches, greater than anything. You have faith!
You have the currency of heaven. The giant is coming down! Make a faith transaction, buy, and sell! Make a faith transaction.
What is the origin of your faith?
What did you do with the simple faith that God gave you when you got saved? If you take a new believer and ask him, “do you believe that God can open these eyes?” He says yes. But if you take an old wine man, attended the church for 20 years, and he is not sure, now you need 80 confirmations. I have one here saved three months, casting out demons. I have young people here, saved three months, even three days, prophesying with names and addresses. When you are born again in God and you have the signs that I have just mentioned, you will have the kind of faith of God.
Faith causes you to have heaven’s perspective. Now you will have heaven’s perspective. It should be normal for you to walk in the Supernatural.
God’s perspective is this: Nothing is impossible for God. My perspective is this: I can do all things through Christ. With the faith that you have, it should be normal to you to find money in your bank account that you never deposited.
Where is your faith? I want you to stand and spend it now. How do you spend your faith? You spend your faith through your words. You need to declare: God is able to heal me, God can restore my marriage, and God can deliver me, NOW! Start to spend it now. Spend your faith.
