Intelligent Faith Explained – Part 2

Mind Use It

And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 MEV

What is intelligent faith?

Intelligent = Taking into account what God has said and promised in the Bible, then believing in it above ALL other words, knowledge and situations in the world. Using your brain and not your heart. Your reason and not emotions.

Faith = A personal relationship consisting of acts of sacrifice, commitment and submission to Him DAILY; which in turn will provide an innate assurance/conviction(not a feeling), which comes from God exclusively, that He exists and rewards those who prove they love Him by obeying His directions. Believing without seeing.

Our God-given common sense(although I call it rare sense nowadays) helps us to take a step back from our problems & life to assess it the situation, look at the God we claim to have a relationship with, look at what His Words claim He IS and CAN do, and then react with intelligent faith against the devil and his demons that are trying to rob us of the Promises and Life He spoke of.

For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 MEV

Also to react with an intelligent faith to demand and claim from God what He promised to those who have a relationship with Him. It’s to assess our lives based on what the Bible says, whether we fully understand it or not.

…test Me now in this… Malachi 3:10 MEV

Sacrifice is the PRICE to get the benefits of Intelligent Faith.

One final thing

It’s important that we seek to understand the original meaning of certain key words used in the bible, i.e. Love, Sacrifice or Believe. These key word’s original meanings, holds more weight than it’s current meaning.

The truth is that it’s meaning has been diluted over time and many people (including myself) have been lead to think they are obeying God properly, when we haven’t, simply due to a lack of understanding.

The following bible verse comes to mind:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being My priest… Hosea 4:6 MEV

God is with you, believe that!

Intelligent Faith Explained – Part 1

Mind Use It

And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 MEV

What is intelligent faith?

In Theory: 

While meditating on His Words (the Bible) making a sincere effort to UNDERSTANDING who He is and what He can do, above all other knowledge. 

For example: 

He cannot LIE – Numbers 23:19 & Hebrews 6:18

He forgives and forgets our sins – Isaiah 43:25 & Hebrew 8:12 

He is a healer – Exodus 15:26 & 1 Peter 2:24

He delivers us from demons and their works – Psalms 34:27 & Mark 1:24-26 

He provides an abundant life – Jeremiah 29:11 & John 10:10

Bible

In Practice:

After understanding who He is and what He can do, BELIEVING through ACTIONS, above all other prior knowledge, who God IS and can do. 

For Example:

Obey His words/directions – Joshua 6 & Luke 5:4-6

Confessing your sins to Him – Proverb 28:13 & 1 John 1:19

Giving an offering – Malachi 3:8-12 & Luke 6:38 

Working smart to receive a life more abundant – Ecclesiastes 11:4-6 & 2 Corinthians 9:6

Rebuking the devil – Luke 10:18-19 & James 4:7

Now if you really believe and are serious about having a relationship with God, you will take your time to go and meditate on all of these bible verses before reading part 2 of this post, when it comes.

Trusting Someone With That “Thing”

MA-image-1-18-16

If Your Not Already, How About Following My Blog! Get The Updates, Maybe Reblog My Posts On Your Page & Share Them! You Won’t Regret It =D

In This Post, I Refer To The Word “Thing” A Lot. The “Thing” Is Whatever U Make It Out To Be, Whether It’s Something Valuable Or Not…

Humanly speaking, when we place a “Thing” into someone’s hands, we give them rule over it; we turnover our exclusive and total authority. Correct?

This means the person we give it to, either forever or for a period of time, become the sole controller/authority over that “Thing”, and how they handle that “Thing”. Yes or No?

The original owner now loses their exclusive authority over the handling of that “Thing”, which means they are now suppose to let the new owner/authority handle the “Thing” as they please, and trust that they will take care of the “Thing” properly.

authority-site-1024x9882

Do you see yourself worried or anxious? This is normal, within reason, as we will all naturally think our handling of the “Thing” is the best and any other way is risky. However, if your constantly feeling like this, this shows that you don’t really trust that person with that “Thing”, and their ability to handle the “Thing” accordingly.

If that’s the case, why give that “Thing” over to them in the first place? You could save yourself the hassle and stress if you kept it in your hands. If you see yourself constantly having to tell them what to do, it means that either they are not ready and mature enough to handle the “Thing” or your not ready to trust them with that “Thing”.

You shouldn’t give an important “Thing” to someone you didn’t trust could handle it! This is rare sense.

Handing over keys on blue sky

But the truth is, in most cases, your giving that “Thing” over because you have seen somehow that that person can handle your “Thing” and get the job done, so let them be! Once you have given it over, use your reason and remind yourself of this, stop being emotional by still trying to control the “Thing” once you’ve given it over.

Especially if the being your handing over that “Thing” to is GOD.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding…” Proverbs 3:5 NKJV

This Is What God Revealed To Me Recently. It’s Easier Said Than Done, I Know! But It’s The Intelligent Thing To Do. May God Give U Strength To Trust Him.

The Book Of Ecclesiastes

Ecclesiastes

MAAAATTTTTEEEEE! Hope Your Good, I Have Been Meditating On The Book Of Ecclesiastes Recently & I Wanted To Share With You Some Verses…

I want to understand to God who I believed created all that is in existent. My desire is to live my life to the fullest and die a man who can say i did everything I needed and wanted to do.

I refuse to live regretting that I didn’t do this or that, I choose daily to rebuke and resist the fears and doubts that come to me, and choose to embrace and act upon my faith and work towards achieving my dreams.

The book of Ecclesiastes was written by the wisest man to have ever live, King Solomon. He wrote the book of Proverbs and Songs of Solomon also, If you haven’t already read them, I advise you to. Take your take while reading these books, as we say in the Christian faith, there’s a difference between reading the bible and meditating on it.

The reason I advise this is that with nearly every 1-3 verse, a powerful message (that could be turned into an hour long university lecture) is prevalent, and if your just reading it, you may miss it. The advice in these verses can provoke a complete change in your mentality and character, it’s that deep!

Here’s a verse that have really made me think, I hope you can catch the Spirit of it and apply yourself accordingly:

That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done,And there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us. There is no remembrance of former things, Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come By those who will come after. Ecclesiastes 1:9-11 NKJV

Think about this. God Bless =]

The 10 Values Of Faith || #10 Love

values_1

Good Afternoon All! It’s Here, The Final Installment To The Values Of Faith Series, I Encourage U To Go Back Over Them From Time To Time To Recap In The Future & Of Course, Don’t Be Selfish, Share These Encouraging Posts With Others. Now Let’s Finalize…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

So relating it to God, always remember what it says in the Holy Bible:

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth, the 5th attribute is Sincerity, the 6th attribute is Faithfulness, the 7th attribute is Honour, the 8th attribute is Discipline and the 9th attribute is Self-Respect.

Hmmm I wonder what the last value is:

10. LOVE

il_570xN.577018324_rx91

He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. I John 4:8 NKJV

But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. Luke 6:32 NKJV

Throughout this series, I have stressing the key fact about faith, that it has everything to do with a person’s reason. Emotion are deceitful and highly unstable, so God doesn’t expect us to live by emotions, but by faith (reason).

The concept of love is a sensitive subject, with many having their own conclusion and belief on what it is about and if it is a feeling or not etc… But i’m here to tell you that love, as described in the bible is God Himself.

And if you meditate on the bible and see the times in which God manifested Himself, whether it was through a miracle, through a sign, when instructing His servants, when performing His righteous justice & through the Lord Jesus Himself, it was always done via love.

This love wasn’t emotional, think about it, if God’s love was emotional, do you think he would have ever sent the Lord Jesus to die for the sins of the world? OF COURSE! If anything He would send a destroyer to eliminate all those people who had disrespected, betrayed, blasphemed, lied and robbed Him, after all, they would have deserved it.

But as we all know:

For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 NKJV

This is LOVE! Taking actions in spite of how you may feel. When we show love to people, especially those who really test your patience and disrespect you or when you forgive that person who betrayed your trust or did something immensely evil to you, we are living by faith and above all pleasing God.

For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Matthew 6:14-15 NKJV

It is very hard to practice love sometimes, I can’t lie even for me as a Christian, but it is not impossible. Only living be faith (reason) would some make such a sacrifice.

The 10 Values Of Faith || #9 Self-Respect

values_1

Allo Reader! This is the penultimate value. I hope you have been blessed and encouraged by these posts…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

So relating it to God, always remember what it says in the Holy Bible:

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

Faith has everything to do with reason, with emotions following behind (not leading, but following). We have learnt that the 1st attribute of faith is A Good Conscience, the 2nd attribute is Honesty, the 3rd attribute is Justice, the 4th attribute is Truth, the 5th attribute is Sincerity, the 6th attribute is Faithfulness, the 7th attribute is Honour and the 8th attribute is Discipline.

Onto the next value, it is none other than:

9. SELF-RESPECT

esteembutton

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:20 NKJV

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 NKJV

Let’s have a look at the definition of self-respect:

  1. Pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honour and dignity – Google
  2. proper sense of one’s own dignity and integrity – The Free Dictionary

When you look around, at the world we now live in, we can clearly see that self-respect is depreciating everyday. I’m not old, but I can remember a time in which people weren’t so willing to do anything and everything for a bit of attention, money, pleasure and “15mins” of fame.

I believe every human being has the desire to be respected in some shape or form by friends, family and strangers, but not every person goes about gaining this respect in the appropriate and morally accepted way.

I’m not here to point out if what you choose to do, the way you choose to act or dress and the way you choose to speak is immoral or not, your conscious does that for you, but i’m here to let you know that, you were bought at a price. When you choose to use your head and show in you actions some self-respect, even though the majority of the world is choosing to show a lack of it, you are pleasing God by using your faith.

It’s easy to be reckless and follow your deceiving, selfish and unpredictable heart, ESPECIALLY NOWADAYS.

In reality, you may get respect from your peers, colleagues, friends, social media and family (most probably because they are practicing lack of self-respect) but you will never get it from God.

The question is, who’s respect is more important to you, mans’ respect or Gods’ respect?

He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. Matthew 10:37-38 NKJV

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. 1 John 2:15-16 NKJV

The 10 Values Of Faith || #8 Discipline

values_1

Good Evening Mate! And I’m Back Again With Another Attribute Of Faith. I Hope From These Series Of Posts, You Are Actually Using Ur Faith In God & To Achieve Ur Goals. If Not, Start Right After This Post…

To be in faith is to be sincere with yourself, God and others, especially when it comes to acknowledging your mistakes or asking for help.

To put in to perspective, to be in faith is to eliminate the feelings of fear, doubts, angers, grudge, worries etc… and hold tight onto courage, belief, happiness, forgiveness and certainty. It’s easier said than done but it is possible, just ask anyone who is successful in their respective field of work.

If you haven’t got it from the title already, the 8th attribute is:

8. DISCIPLINE

self-discipline

He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32 NKJV

To be disciplined is a conscious decision and act. It requires the person to ignore the screaming noise of the heart and listen to the quiet but assertive voice of the mind. It demands the person to fight against the pressure of the feelings at that moment and think about the rational route.

We have all experienced a moment in life when we had to decide to either be disciplined or reckless, and unfortunately, the majority of us (including myself) chose to be reckless and irrational. King Solomon, inspired by the Holy Spirit, tell us that the person with self discipline is greater than the mighty.

Why is that? because it’s easy to be reckless and irrational, it’s easy to live by how we feel. It’s hard to think when the pressures of the heart activates, it’s hard not to feed those feelings. However, if you can resist and decide to be disciplined, your are living by faith, and through that, pleasing God.

Rule & subdue your heart; or else you’ll be a slave to it and be no different to an animal. Discipline is the bridge between goal and accomplishment.

Watch Out For The Next Value, Til Then Share This With Someone Who Needs It. God Bless. =]
