Faith Class 101: Class 9
The Professor wrote this on the white board as the last student entered the class and sat down: THE CORE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Then He began to teach:
Right standing with God is an absolute foundation in who you are in Christ. It encompasses everything you are. At the core of this knowledge is the anointing.
What is the anointing?
John answered. “The anointing destroys yokes and removes burdens.” (Isaiah 10:27)
Yes, that is correct. It is the power of God to set people free from the law of sin and death. What law are you now to abide in, John? “Is it the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus?” (Romans 8:2)
Yes! And in Christ Jesus that means you partake of His anointing where there is no condemnation against you.
Class, this is vital information for you to understand and acknowledge every day because the strong pull of the world is going the wrong way. Overcome this opposition by renewing your mind to scripture. It will keep you connected to God's Kingdom and power.
FAITH AND YOUR POTENTIAL
In our last class we talked about how righteousness empowers your potential to carry out your assignment on earth. Why? When you see yourself as God sees you, sin consciousness and unworthiness will have no hold on you.
You can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens you.
You can’t accept this righteousness without faith.
Faith in God must be believed so that your potential can be unleashed and you can be all that God says you are. It is by faith that God’s grace can release the Kingdom of God that is within you to DO the impossible — like heal the sick.
There is no end to this potential.
CREATIVE FAITH AND DOMINATING FAITH
Creative faith brought the universe into being.
God had a desire to build a home for mankind: EARTH! He spoke what He wanted and faith (substance of things hoped for) brought it into the seen realm. He began with “Let there be light, and there was light.” See Hebrews 11:1-3 and Genesis 1:3.
JESUS RELEASED CREATIVE FAITH
“Then great multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, blind, mute, maimed, and many others; and they laid them down at Jesus’ feet, and He healed them.” (Matthew 15:29)
Notice the maimed were made whole. That means a man with a missing leg now had a healthy leg to walk on!
Notice, five thousand hungry men plus women and children were fed from five loaves of bread and two small fishes...“they all ate and were filled,” and had twelve baskets of leftovers. (Mark 6:30-44)
Jesus went to the tomb of His friend and said, “Lazarus, come forth!” (John 11:43) A body beginning to decompose became a man completely well enough to walk out of his tomb!
Jesus spoke to a horrific wind storm that was about to sink the boat that He and His disciples were in. He rebuked the wind by speaking directly to it. Then Jesus said, “Peace, be still!” (Mark 4:39) And there was a great calm.
Gideon was a man raised under the captivity of an evil nation wondering why he was not seeing the mighty hand of God bring justice against their enemies. “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!” said the Angel of the LORD. (Judges 6:12)
Gideon received this word and experienced the power of God to dominate and defeat his enemies! Gideon became what God spoke and delivered Israel from oppression. Accepting his assignment released his full potential. He dominated the enemy by faith in God!
Righteousness, Faith, Your Potential, and Your Anointing
Don’t allow the world to dictate your potential in Christ.
Don’t let other people smother what God has for you to accomplish during these end days. The world can’t hold a candle to what you can do.
They are limited with human achievement...human abilities.
Walk and think like Jesus.
He walked on the sea!
This is that...which a fisherman did!
“Come. ‘And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.’” (Matthew 14:29)
