RHEMA 8/03/011 GIFT OF FAITH IS COMING
HEARD: Measurements of faith.
PIX: I saw a measuring cup.
HEARD: Faith is substance.
Heb 11:1-3 NKJV
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders
obtained a good testimony. 3 By faith we understand that
the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the
things which are seen were not made of things which are
PONDERING: Faith is the essence and
under-support for things we hope for. It is the
conviction of what we do not see. We understand that
this core ingredient is what restored the worlds by
God's spoken Word. Even though faith is not visible, it
is the powerful ingredient that brings God's Word to be
made manifest and tangible.
QUICKENED THOUGHT: I have a small motor that
pumps waters and I use a flashlight to be able to see
the water level in the little window gage. When the
light shines through the window I can see that the water
HEARD: Increase your portion. The gift of
faith. I'm raining on you. The gift of faith, its
PIX: I saw a huge flash of white light flood
my vision. It started in the center of my eye and then
expanded out. It was very fast like the action of a
camera lens opening.
HEARD: Substance, its accumulative. Yes it's
an impartation but it also grows. Let's begin.
I saw a baby crawling on a glass but he was upside down.
HEARD: Let it be a portion I can grow into.
Portion by experience. Grounded by faith, hope and
differences of ministries
diversities of activities
Distributed to each one person as He wills
1 Cor 12:4-11 NKJV
There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
5 There are differences of ministries, but the same
Lord. 6 And there are diversities of activities, but it
is the same God who works all in all. 7 But the
manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the
profit of all: 8 for to one is given the word of wisdom
through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge
through the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same
Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,
10 to another the working of miracles, to another
prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another
different kinds of tongues, to another the
interpretation of tongues. 11 But one and the same
Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one
individually as He wills.
1 Tim 4:12-16
Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to
the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit,
in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attention to
reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. 14 Do not
neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you
by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the
eldership. 15 Meditate on these things; give yourself
entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to
all. 16 Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine.
Continue in them, for in doing this you will save
both yourself and those who hear you.
ameleo (am-el-eh'-o); from NT:1 (as a negative particle)

2 Tim 1:3-7 NKJV
I remember you in my prayers night and day, 4 greatly
desiring to see you, being mindful of your tears, that I
may be filled with joy, 5 when I call to remembrance the
genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your
grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am
persuaded is in you also. 6 Therefore I remind you to
stir up the gift of God which is in you through the
laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a
spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound
anazopureo (an-ad-zo-poor-eh'-o); from NT:303 and a
compound of the base of NT:2226 and NT:4442; to
KJV - stir up.
Twice Paul admonished Timothy about the gift of faith
that was imparted to him. Fear is the direct
opposition of faith. According to the Greek words,
Timothy had fallen into fear which caused him be
careless and have little regard for the gift of faith.
Paul gave the anecdote:
Give attention to reading, to exhortation,
Meditate on these things; give yourself
entirely to them
Continue in them, for in doing this you
will save both yourself and those who hear you.
Stir up, rekindle the use of the gift.
THE GIFT OF FAITH 10/09/04
It is through hearing My Word that a solid foundation is
built in your life. For many years I have been building
your faith. As I speak My Words into your life, quicken
them, then confirm them, this builds your faith. This
faith is an absolute assurance that even though you do
not see Me, you know that I have spoken into your life
and I am actively involved in taking care of you, loving
you and surrounding you. This faith is like a pillow of
comfort in which to lay your heart. This faith enables
you to rest when everything around you is chaos. This
faith is solidly and slowly built upon the building
bricks of My Word, then mortared with experience and
results. When it is set, there is a solid trust.
There is another kind of faith and it is called the gift
of faith. This too is built on the same principal, yet
it produces a different result. I know all things
before they happen; thus in times when you need a
breakthrough, when you need explosive faith, I prepare
you with My Word to climax through the gift of faith. I
know exactly the time it will take, the Words that you
need to hear, the confirmations needed to set you, so
that when you most desperately need a breakthrough, the
gift of faith is there.
Any kind of faith is the creative element that
dispatches forces with assignment in the unseen world.
The gift of faith is a sudden occurrence that explodes
into the realm of the supernatural and it blasts away
the obstacles in one blow. It is powerful upon impact.
The gift of faith is declaring the passion of our joined
assurance that what is decreed is NOW. And that is the
gift of faith. Covet earnestly this gift and ask Me to
build it within you for your breakthrough.
1 Cor 12:9 AMP
To another [wonder-working] faith by the same [Holy]
Spirit, to another the extraordinary powers of healing
by the one Spirit.
