Joh 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.
What you believe determines what you receive.
What would happen if everyone who says they believe in God, actually took him at his word, appropriated his promises and walked accordingly?
It was the ONLY requirement of Christ when asked by the multitude what they should do to work the works of God; His answer, Believe
This is the Toil, occupation, act, labor, deed, doing, to work....
This is Gods requirement and in fact this may be the most laborious of any.
Getting control of our own thought life and bringing it to submit to the control of the spirit life. Believing God, believing the promises, believing in Christ the focal point of all believing. Everything we need is in him, and accessible by, and through faith.
He is the living pledge He is the promise he is the bread ; keep eating the bread
The work of God is Faith in God
Believe and act accordingly as Abraham did. He believed and then acted on what he believed. He worked, applied what he believed
Everything a man does will be consistent with what he believes in his heart. Every thought, word, deed, act will be consistent with what he believes. A liar only appears inconsistent to everyone else, but, he is acting consistent with his own dualistic world view. There is a direct link between the physical world and our internal worldview.
God asks us to WORK at BELIEVING in the Promises in Christ.
What is this work? That ye be Transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Unbelief is deadly to the glorious divine program
The Holy Spirit is given to guide us into all truth so that we might believe it, in order that the whole program of God, may be carried out.
How God would sweep the world with His mighty power if all who profess his name were to set out to discover all divine truth, to believe it with an appropriating faith, and to act accordingly
FF Bosworth: Christ the Healer. Pg. 127
I believe we are coming into a time when SONS of God all over the world are going to do exactly that. They are going to be guided into ALL Divine TRUTH to do the WHOLE PROGRAM of God.
All the wonders, and signs, and miracles, and healing the church has brought forth to date, will be nothing compared to what God is prepared to do when SONS of God start moving in this marvelous realm of believing.
Its all God requires Its all Jesus required
Step out into REAL faith, quit judging by the senses, start judging by the words of Promise.
Don't judge anything by the senses, nothing, not even a little bit, not even when you think it might be getting better. Judge everything by the word.
To the man of Faith the WORD of GOD IS the VOICE of GOD. It is the present tense will and word of God. What has been revealed BELONGS TO US.
What God HAS said, has been written for the present and future Generations. There is no need for GOD to keep saying what has already been revealed and written down for our enlightenment. It has been Said, therefore, it belongs to us forevermore.
Heb 10:36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.
Jesus is the Promise and he contains within him all the promises. You have to look unto Jesus for EVERYTHING
What has been revealed BELONGS to us. If it belongs, then we are responsible for utilizing what Has been given already. We are not responsible for what has not been given. We are only held responsible for what has already been given
Jesus has been given, in him is life, but we are under utilizing all that this LIFE is capable of accomplishing. HOW? By not believing.
Deu 29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.
