UNDERSTANDING THE MYSTERY OF FAITH – Pst David Oyedepo Jnr



WHERE FAITH IS INVOLVED, IMPOSSIBILITIES DO NOT EXIST.

THERE IS NO IRREVERSIBLE CASE WITH FAITH BECAUSE WHATEVER GOD CAN DO, FAITH CAN MAKE HAPPEN.

FAITH ELEVATES MAN TO EXPERIENCE WHATEVER GOD CAN DO.

THERE IS NO CLOSED CASE WITH FAITH. WHEREVER FAITH IS AVAILABLE THERE IS A WAY OUT, THERE IS A WAY FORWARD

– Pastor David Oyedepo Jnr on UNDERSTANDING THE MYSTERY OF FAITH 4′ at Midweek Communion Service LFC Canaanland Part A

Our Father tonight we have come with gratitude in our hearts to give glory and praise to you for all of the answers you have given to our prayers. Every time we call you hear us and every time you hear, you answer us. For it again tonight we say thank you. 

 

Our Father we are before you again for your Word. Speak to us tonight, let your Word come with clarity in our direction. Let our lives be transformed tonight. We give all the praise and glory to you because we know it is done. In Jesus’ precious name, we have prayed.

Our teaching series in our Midweek Services has been captioned UNDERSTANDING THE MYSTERY OF FAITH.

This is the concluding portion of this teaching. I believe God that tonight each one of us shall be transformed.

All through scriptures, God identifies faith as a mystery. 1 Timothy 3:9. A mystery in simple terms is a hidden secret. 

 

Every child of God according to scriptures is a candidate for the unravelling of mysteries. Mark 4:11.

It is a mystery and it is the heritage of every child of God to gain access to the mysteries of God. This mystery is very important because when it comes to the subject of faith, it is a non-negotiable factor in the life of a believer. I pray that for each one of us upon this mountain our faith will change levels.

What is faith? Faith can be described as our access to a world of unlimited possibilities. John 11:39-44. I know he has been dead for four days but did I not say to you that the condition for the transformation you desire is your faith? Did I not say to you that if you believe you will see the glory of God? 

Jesus made it very clear when faith is involved, impossibilities do not exist. Mark 9:23. Matthew 17:19-20. Where faith is available, impossibilities do not exist. I pray for each one of us that from this season onward our faith will shift levels.

In fact, there is no irreversible case with faith because whatever God can do, faith can make happen. There is no irreversible case with faith because whatever it is God can do, faith can make it happen. That means faith elevates man to experience whatever God can do. The realm of God is the realm of possibilities. When a man steps into the arena of God, impossibilities are dissolved. I pray again for each one of us tonight that as our faith is quickened afresh, each one of us will step into that arena of God. That is why God’s servant told us at the beginning of this series that when faith comes alive, victory comes along. It is impossible to be defeated where faith is available.

 

The presence of faith is the eradication of defeat. Wherever there is faith, there is a way out. 

1 Corinthians 10:13. There is no closed case with faith. Wherever faith is available there is a way out, there is a way forward. That means you can’t have faith and remain stagnated. Deuteronomy 2:3. Wherever faith is available, stagnation is not possible because faith always brings the way forward. What else? We discover that wherever faith is available there is always a way upward.

You can’t remain grounded with faith. Men of faith will naturally keep shifting levels. Moving from one realm to another. You can’t remain grounded with faith. The Bible tells us about Joshua and Caleb, they said in Numbers 13:30 – “let us go up at once”. We can’t stay down, faith is at work, we can’t stay on the ground.

Let us go up at once.

Where there is faith, there is a way out, where there is faith there is a way out and where there is faith there is a way upward.

For someone under the sound of my voice tonight, by the way God is quickening in your heart through His Word, I see each one of us experiencing a change of story.

Quickly, what makes faith a mystery? We will look at a few things quickly here tonight and I trust God that the spirit of God will give us light in the name of Jesus.

1. Faith provokes the healing power of God that makes whole.

In Luke 8:40-48, the Bible gives us a particular picture of the experience of a woman who had an issue of blood for 12 years. The Bible tells us that she had spent all of her living on physicians and could not be healed. She carried an incurable disease. The Bible tells us that she came behind him and touched the border of the garment of Jesus and immediately her issue of blood stopped. Look at what the Bible says, Jesus said “Who touched me?” Luke 8:45-48. Jesus said somebody touched me, many people are pushing me, many people are pulling me but one person is touching me. Why? For I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. It is not the pull, it is not the push, it is the faith. The faith was the contact point. Everybody was present, everybody was pulling, everybody was pushing but one person was touching. It was the difference maker.

Where faith is available, it makes contact with the power of God to bring about the healings that we desire. 1 Corinthians 2:4-5. Faith is what connects, it is what collects, it is what accesses the power of God that brings our healing.

It means therefore that it is our faith that makes the difference. Where faith is available, there is a contact point with the power of God. It draws on God’s power to bring about the healing that we desire. No wonder we are told when the Bible describes the man called Stephen in scriptures, Acts 6:8. It said he was full of faith and power. Where there is faith there will be power.

 

What wire is to electricity is what faith is to power. It is the conduit of communication, it is what carries the power from God to meet the situation that needs to be addressed. That is why when faith comes alive, healing comes along. You and I can draw on the power of God to deliver the healing we desire.

 

This is why it is important for us to understand that faith is a non-negotiable factor. When it comes to you and I taking delivery of the healing that we desire.
