RHEMA 1/10/06 THE GIFT OF FAITH
HEARD: The gift of faith. Launch pad.
HEARD: The gift of faith. Every fact shall be confirmed
by 2 or 3 witnesses.
Burden to communicate with one another. Where do I go
from here? I will show you. My joy. Rise up. A future
and a hope. Trust Me.
[Interp: It is important to communicate with one
another, so that confirmations are freely shared.]
I have been thinking about there are 2 kinds of faith.
Each man has been given a measure of faith and that
grows line upon line, as we hear and receive His Words
and are confirmed.
Rom 12:3 NKJV
"...God has dealt to each one a measure of faith."
The other kind of faith is the gift of faith and it can
come upon us as in a visitation, for special thrusting
times of proclamation, or moving from one place to
another. The gift of faith can also descend like a
mantle and operate in people’s lives who walk in power
prayer or power proclamation and or deliverance. The
gift of faith can be like a catapult that hurls someone
from the darkness into His light.
Rom 12:5-7 NKJV
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that
is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us
prophesy in proportion to our faith.
1 Cor 12:7-11 NKJV
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one
for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of
wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of
knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by
the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the
same Spirit, 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. But one and the same Spirit
works all these things, distributing to each one
individually as He wills.
When I think of the gift of faith and being catapulted,
this scripture comes to mind:
Col 1:13-14 NKJV
He has delivered us from the power of darkness and
conveyed [translated #3179] us into the kingdom of the
Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His
blood, the forgiveness of sins.
Col 1:13 AMP
[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out
of the control and the dominion of darkness and has
transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love…
NT:3179 methistemi (meth-is'-tay-mee); or (1 Cor 13:2)
methistano (meth-is-tan'-o); from NT:3326 and NT:2476;
to transfer, i.e. carry away, depose or (figuratively)
KJV - put out, remove, translate, turn away.

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
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.
