For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdensome. For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith. 1 John 5:3-4.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
There is only one way to live days of Heaven upon the earth—by faith. Faith gets you to Heaven and faith brings Heaven to earth. Faith works by love. It is based on love and trust. When you are fully persuaded of My goodness, love, and grace for YOU no matter what, faith becomes strong and it becomes easy. I am faithful and I will do what I have promised.
Faith is active but it is a rest. Jesus told you, “My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working.” John 5:17. But I entered the rest on the seventh day. And that is tasting Heaven upon the earth. And that is today’s Life Lesson about living days of Heaven upon the earth: “Take it by faith.”
I invite you all to enter the rest with Me and live a fruitful, productive life with Me from My rest. The reason the Israelites redeemed out of Egypt never entered My rest is because they never mixed faith with My Word (promises). Hebrews 4:2. They drew back in doubt and unbelief. They could not receive because, even though they had seen My works and believed in Me, they doubted My love and faithfulness and were not persuaded that what I told them would come to pass. Instead they looked at the circumstances as they saw them, not as I saw them, for I had always told them there were giants in that land, and large walled cities, but I had also told them that they would conquer the giants because I would send My angel before them to fight for and with them and that I would give the splendid cities, the fine houses filled with good things, and the vineyards they had not planted and the wells they had not dug to them.
Hearing My Word and not believing though they had seen My mighty works in redeeming them from the slavery of Egypt, I called hardening their hearts and I called it an evil heart of unbelief. Hebrews 3:7-12. It kept them out of My rest and instead caused them, by their own choice, to wander in the wilderness all their lives when they could have been enjoying all My benefits in the place where I would have given them rest. I had it all prepared for them in advance but they refused to take it. It was not because of a lack of skill for battle, or lack of weapons or chariots, that they did not enter into the fullness of all that I had spoken to them but rather their unbelief in My Words. Hebrews 3:19.
Your faith is the victory that overcomes the world. Without faith you will not have victory over the world or anything of the world, including disease, poverty, mental and emotional ailments, and anything else that entered the earth by the curse that Adam released upon the earth. Faith is a wonderful thing.
Have faith in Me and you will have days of Heaven on earth. But you must have a revelation, and not just information, about My love for you before you can what I mean when I say “faith.” Faith is not a struggle with whether you will get what I promised, but knowing that My promises are there for you, like the rain coming down upon the earth, it is falling for all, but in this case, it only can benefit the one who connects with it and takes it in. And there is a way to do that and that is faith, but to skillfully apply it you have to understand the law of faith. And the law of faith works for all who will obey it. You believe in your heart (fully persuaded) and you speak with your mouth (take the things I have promised by calling them in until they manifest—until you become what I have called you). 2 Corinthians 4:13.
I have so much to give you, I want My people to be filled to overflowing with My goodness. Jeremiah 31:14. But you cannot receive what I have for you without faith. My part is I have provided it all, your part is to actively receive it by faith. My sun shines on the bad and the good, My rain falls on the just and unjust—My benefits are there for all who will take them by faith, faith in My Son, faith in My goodness, faith in the love that I have for each person that I made from the beginning to the end of time. I hate nothing that I have made. I sustain and hold you all in the continuum of My love, but those who draw close by faith will enjoy it all while those in the extremes (the outer darkness) will finally lose the little they had compared to the abundance I longed to shower on all.
“Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren. Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” James 1:16-17. “I will make them and the places around My hill a blessing. And I will cause showers to come down in their season; they will be showers of blessing.” Ezekiel 34:26. Envision My promises, My Words filled with blessing, as falling all about you to reach out and catch and possess the benefit in them as your own. And there is no distinction here between male or female, Jew or gentile, slave or free, rich or poor, old or young—the blessings are falling from Heaven for all, My Word is for all. I so loved the world I GAVE you My only Son that all who believe in Him have eternal life and will never perish. John 3:16. But you must reach out by faith and receive Him as your Lord.
I will hear what God the LORD will say; for He will speak peace to His people, to His godly ones; but let them not turn back to folly. Surely His salvation is near to those who fear Him, that glory may dwell in our land. Lovingkindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth springs from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven. Indeed, the LORD will give what is good.” Psalm 85:8-12.
I want to shower you with blessings, every spiritual blessing in Heaven. I want to rain them all down upon the earth, like I did the manna in the wilderness upon My people. They are hovering there for you to take. But just as with the manna, it was no benefit to them unless they went out and gathered it, so it is with you.
If you do not have faith in that I have already healed you, you will never enter the rest of receiving healing but instead will be constantly begging for it in agitation and uncertainty as to whether I will give it to you when I already have. Jesus bore all your diseases and pains and they are no longer yours. By His stripes you were healed. It is up to you, however, to be persuaded of this and call it into your life to manifest. You cannot back down when you do not see an immediate result. “My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” Hebrews 10:38. Faith and patience obtain the promises. Hebrews 6:11-12.
Therefore, do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised. Hebrews 10:35-36.
When you do not exercise your faith I am robbed from blessing you as I desire. This grieves My Spirit for you limit what I can do for you when My Spirit longs to perform My Word in you, just as He has performed My Word from the beginning as He hovered waiting for My Word to go into action.
I tell you that the Word preached by Moses to the Israelites did not profit them because it was not mixed with faith by those who heard. If you do not mix faith with My Words they will not profit you, that is, manifest in your life. Faith turns My Words into power, it puts them to work in you to achieve the end for which I sent them. My Word is like seed, without faith in the heart hearing it, it will not plant and grow.
I call Abraham your father in the faith. I credited his faith to him as righteousness and My Word manifested in his life. I told him that “A father of many nations have I made you,” Romans 4:17, and “In hope against hope he believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken.” Romans 4:18. I had made him that already in the plans I had for him since his mother’s womb, but he had to believe that in order that he would become it. He had to mix My Word with faith to become what I made him to be. Think of a child I have made with musical talent to be a great pianist but until that child develops that and becomes skillful in it, that child will not become a pianist though I made that child to be that.
In Jesus, when you were born again, I made you healed, prosperous, peaceful and with a life of good deeds prepared for you in advance that you might walk them out. Now you must become it, demand it of yourself. And how do you do that? The same way I do, I call the things which do not exist as existing and they become. Romans 4:18. You see this in My work of creation at the beginning of the Bible. It was dark so I called in the light. Faith calls things that are given by Me into being, into becoming. If you know your child is playing in the yard and you want him to come to dinner, you call him, even before you see him. And you call until he comes.
I called you healed, so you call yourself healed and it will come into manifestation. To mix faith with My Words you must agree with them and say the same thing (homologia). Jesus is the High Priest of your confession (homologia) and He will bring it to Me to perform it. I will back up what I have said.
Find what My Word says in any given situation, and then call that situation what I call it and expect the desired result that you have located in My Word. I will back up what I call when you call it. Indeed, what I called only comes into manifestation in your life if you call it in as well.
Next, believe according to what I have said, not what you see, feel in your body, or what others say. Faith believes simply because I said it. Faith believes My Word because it is My Word and My Word is truth. For you who love and trust Me that I said it is enough. That ends the matter because you know Me in whom you have believed.
And you consider not the contrary circumstances, that is, the natural things, that seem to make My Word impossible to come to pass. Do not even entertain the doubts or fears these bring. Do not take counsel only from your body, your past, your finances, your failures—look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith, and keep pressing forward forgetting what lies behind to your high calling in Christ. Weak faith considers the contrary things, strong faith does not.
And do not put your attention on what is happening to others around you. How does that concern you when your business is to follow Me? Abraham considered not his body or that of Sarah and her barrenness, he instead focused on My promise until it manifested.
“And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. And therefore ‘it was accounted to him for righteousness.’” Romans 4:19-22.
Do not consider others failures to get what My Word promises, that will not affect your receiving. “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.” Psalm 91:7.
And do not be wavering and going back in forth in taking the promise and then when it is not an immediate result doubting it. Any doubt you must answer and stay steadfast on the promise. If things are out of line with My Word in your life, answer them with the truth of My Word, cast out the unclean spirit that is bringing that into your life in the Name of Jesus, and then worship as you sing of all My benefits. And, like David, do not forget one of them. They are all constantly descending to the earth from Heaven won’t you reach out and take them?
And the best way to stay in faith and grow into strong faith is to be constantly praising and thanking in advance for the marvelous things I have done in your life. Abraham stayed strong in faith by getting his eyes off he problem and onto Me by giving Me glory for the wonderful things I was doing in his life, even before they manifested.
I love you. Have faith in Me and then speak to the mountain in the way of My promise and cast it into the sea and then receive with thanksgiving and joy My Word, it has the power to save you when mixed with faith. Come, enter My rest where all My promises are “yes.”
The Blessing of the LORD makes rich and adds no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22.
