The Realities Of Faith || Covenant University || Pastor Isaac Oyedepo
Faith is fake if it lacks proofs, it is proofs that validate faith – John. 10:37 KJV
➢ Whenever Faith comes alive, victory comes along – 1 John. 5:4 KJV, Ephesians. 6:16 KJV
➢ But if faith is this powerful, why is my faith not working – Mark. 10:17-23 KJV
What is Faith?
➢ Faith is a living force drawn from the living word to produce living proofs – Luke. 8:40-48 KJV, John 1:1-3 KJV
You can’t have faith in Jesus without Faith in his name.
➢ Faith is a spiritual engraftment of our humanity into divinity thereby empowering us to command dominion – Romans. 11:19-23 KJV, Psalm 82:6 KJV, Acts 14:11 KJV, John 3:8 KJV, Ephesians 5:1 KJV
You are God but you look like man.
➢ Faith is putting God’s word to work believing – John 2:1-11 KJV, Luke 5:1-8 KJV
Nothing validates faith more than action.
There is a fraction/fact of the unknown when it comes to faith.
➢ Faith is sharing responsibility with God in the light of scripture – John 21:5-6 KJV
You never know the power at work in you until you respond.
Respond even when the instruction does not make sense.
The Faith that works must be:
➢ Heart-seated faith – Romans 10:10 KJV, Hebrews. 4:2-3 KJV, Mark. 11:20 KJV
➢ Bold-speaking Faith – Act. 4:13-16 KJV, Act. 29-33 KJV, Act. 14: 3 KJV
➢ Fear-free faith – Matthew. 14:26-28 KJV, Proverbs. 29:25 KJV
You can’t have fear and faith at the same time.
➢ Testimony provoked Faith – Psalm. 119:111 KJV, Isaiah. 8:16/20 KJV, Rev. 12:11 KJV
