Imperfect Faith

Genesis 17:1-5
World English Bible (WEB)

17 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, Yahweh appeared to Abram, and said to him, “{1}I am God Almighty. {2}Walk before me, and {3}be blameless. I will make my covenant between me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.”

Abram fell on his face. God talked with him, saying, “As for me, behold, my covenant is with you. You will be the father of a multitude of nations. Your name will no more be called Abram, but your name will be Abraham; for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations.

  1. I am God Almighty.
  2. Walk before me, and
  3. be blameless
  • Order is important.

Yud Hey Vav Hey

  • 2 Times Hey
  • Hey means 5
  • 5 Means Grace
  • God breathed “Hey” in our nostrils
  • God breathed Grace ( “Hey” ) in to Abraham
    • So changed his name from Abram to Abraham
    • Abram : Father of Altitude
      • No Son
    • Abraham : Father of Multitude
      • Son
  • Grace will always makes people benefit many
    • Without grace, being in Altitude it doesn’t benefit many

Genesis 17:15-18
World English Bible (WEB)

15 God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but her name will be Sarah. 16 I will bless her, and moreover I will give you a son by her. Yes, I will bless her, and she will be a mother of nations. Kings of peoples will come from her.”

17 Then Abraham fell on his face, and laughed, and said in his heart, “Will a child be born to him who is one hundred years old? Will Sarah, who is ninety years old, give birth?” 18 Abraham said to God, “Oh that Ishmael might live before you!”

After Name Change

  • After Name Change , “I will bless her
    • Blessing added after Adding Grace.
  • Isaac came
  • Added Grace inside both Abram and Sarai
    • To Abraham and Sarah

Other notes

Romans 4:1-8
World English Bible (WEB)

What then will we say that Abraham, our forefather, has found according to the flesh? For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not toward God. For what does the Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[a] Now to him who works, the reward is not counted as grace, but as something owed. But to him who doesn’t work, but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness. Even as David also pronounces blessing on the man to whom God counts righteousness apart from works,

“Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven,
    whose sins are covered.
Blessed is the man whom the Lord will by no means charge with sin.” [b]

God’s ways

Hebrews 3:7-13
World English Bible (WEB)

Therefore, even as the Holy Spirit says,

“Today if you will hear his voice,
don’t harden your hearts, as in the rebellion,
    like as in the day of the trial in the wilderness,
where your fathers tested me by proving me,
    and saw my deeds for forty years.
10 Therefore I was displeased with that generation,
    and said, ‘They always err in their heart,
    but they didn’t know my ways;’
11 as I swore in my wrath,
    ‘They will not enter into my rest.’”

12 Beware, brothers, lest perhaps there be in any one of you an evil heart of unbelief, in falling away from the living God; 13 but exhort one another day by day, so long as it is called “today”; lest any one of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.

“My Rest” is the Land

  • It doesn’t say “My Land” because people were walking towards Canaan
  • But for us the land is “My Rest”
  • Land flowing with milk and honey
  • Land with provisions already ready
  • From vineyards you didn’t plan
  • From wells you didn’t dig

It’s the land of Rest

  • Place where you come to rest
  • Even though you didn’t see physically.
  • We thank God because he is fighting our battle.
  • Rest is how you please God

Opposite of God’s wrath

  • My wrath –> My Rest

This is not God’ ways

  • Ways People went through in the wilderness are not God’s ways

What is an evil heart?

  • The heart of unbelief.
  • sin is singular refering to unbelief

Exalt one another daily

Fear to rest

Hebrews 3:17-4:1
World English Bible (WEB)

17 With whom was he displeased forty years? Wasn’t it with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? 18 To whom did he swear that they wouldn’t enter into his rest, but to those who were disobedient? 19 We see that they were not able to enter in because of unbelief.

Let us fear therefore, lest perhaps anyone of you should seem to have come short of a promise of entering into his rest.

  • As per this verse, the world is going to hell because of the unbelief in Christ.
    • Not because doing this, doing that. ..etc.
  • This rest is not about heavenly rest
    • Because heaven doesn’t have this giants
    • and heaven doesn’t have this battle.
    • It’s a land of promise

How to enter rest?

  • Believe

Hebrews 4:1-5
World English Bible (WEB)

Let us fear therefore, lest perhaps anyone of you should seem to have come short of a promise of entering into his rest. For indeed we have had good news preached to us, even as they also did, but the word they heard didn’t profit them, because it wasn’t mixed with faith by those who heard. For we who have believed do enter into that rest, even as he has said, “As I swore in my wrath, they will not enter into my rest”;although the works were finished from the foundation of the world. For he has said this somewhere about the seventh day, “God rested on the seventh day from all his works”; and in this place again, “They will not enter into my rest.”

Mix with faith

  • God says, “You are healed” because of Jesus
    • Believe
  • God says, “You will have more than enough”
    • Believe
  • God says, “You will be prosperous”
    • Believe
  • God says, “Everything will prosper”

When you are in difficulty

  • Say “Thank you Father, the battle is yours and my eyes is on you, thank you father you have overcome this problem for me”
  • if the devil says “you can still see it”, say “Lord my eyes is on your Lord”

  • God’s people are good looking in the Bible always
    • David, Joseph, Rebecca, Rachel
  • Possess this blessing
  • Even if you are not good looking, you eventually become good looking.

Don’t touch the battle

1 Samuel 17:42-47
World English Bible (WEB)

42 When the Philistine looked around, and saw David, he disdained him; for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and had a good looking face. 43 The Philistine said to David, “Am I a dog, that you come to me with sticks?” The Philistine cursed David by his gods. 44 The Philistine said to David, “Come to me, and I will give your flesh to the birds of the sky, and to the animals of the field.”

45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword(visible), with a spear(visible), and with a javelin(visible); but I come to you in the name of Yahweh (God) ( invisible ) of Armies, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. 46 Today, Yahweh will deliver you into my hand. I will strike you, and take your head from off you. I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines today to the birds of the sky, and to the wild animals of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel,47 and that all this assembly may know that Yahweh doesn’t save with sword and spear; for the battle is (God’s)Yahweh’s, and he will give you into our hand.”

Devil’s Plan

  • God says you are healed
    • Healing is not visible now, it is being invisible.
  • Devil says “Do your best to go there( see healing)”
  • Truth is “You are already there”
    • You are the healed
    • Devil is trying to take your healing
  • You say “The battle belongs to the Lord”
    • “No. It’s a lying sysmptom”
    • “I am already healed”
  • It is so much more easier if you know that you are in a house, if you are already in the house
  • You are already healed, not trying to be healed.
    • You are not trying to take your healing
    • The devil is trying to take your healing.
  • Its a fight of faith
    • Might take some time
    • Not saying its going to be easy
      • My Yolk is light
    • Bible is the faith food to all of us
  • Who do you think that made the stone hit the mark ( Philistine )?
    • The Lord.

How you go to war?

  • With shepherd boy Dress
  • With a sleeve
    • Because “The battle belongs to the Lord”

Jehoshaphat’s prayer in the midst of the battle

2 Chronicles 20:12

12 Our God, will you not judge them? For we have no might against this great company that comes against us; neither know we what to do, but our eyes are on you.”

2 Chronicles 20:15

15 and he said, “Listen, all Judah, and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you king Jehoshaphat. Yahweh says to you, ‘Don’t be afraid, neither be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

Don’t be afraid, nor be dismayed. Go out against them tomorrow, for Yahweh is with you.’”

During affliction see the invisible

2 Corinthians 4:16-18
World English Bible (WEB)

16 Therefore we don’t faint, but though our outward man is decaying, yet our inward man is renewed day by day. 17 For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory;18 while we don’t look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Hebrews 11:24-29
World English Bible (WEB)

24 By faith, Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, 25 choosing rather to share ill treatment with God’s people, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a time; 26 accounting the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he looked to the reward. 27 By faith, he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible. 28 By faith, he kept the Passover, and the sprinkling of the blood, that the destroyer of the firstborn should not touch them. 29 By faith, they passed through the Red Sea as on dry land. When the Egyptians tried to do so, they were swallowed up.

Numbers 13:23-33
World English Bible (WEB)

23 They came to the valley of Eshcol, and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes, and they bore it on a staff between two. They also brought some of the pomegranates and figs. 24 That place was called the valley of Eshcol, because of the cluster which the children of Israel cut down from there. 25 They returned from spying out the land at the end of forty days. 26 They went and came to Moses, to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, to the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word to them and to all the congregation. They showed them the fruit of the land. 27 They told him, and said, “We came to the land where you sent us. Surely it flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. 28 However the people who dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are fortified and very large. Moreover, we saw the children of Anak there.29 Amalek dwells in the land of the South. The Hittite, the Jebusite, and the Amorite dwell in the hill country. The Canaanite dwells by the sea, and along the side of the Jordan.”

30 Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it!”

31 But the men who went up with him said, “We aren’t able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.” 32 They brought up an evil report of the land which they had spied out to the children of Israel, saying, “The land, through which we have gone to spy it out, is a land that eats up its inhabitants; and all the people who we saw in it are men of great stature. 33 There we saw the Nephilim,[a] the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim.[b] We were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.”

    They tremble.
    Pangs have taken hold on the inhabitants of Philistia.

Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were of those who spied out the land, tore their clothes. They spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying, “The land, which we passed through to spy it out, is an exceeding good land. If Yahweh delights in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it to us; a land which flows with milk and honey. Only don’t rebel against Yahweh, neither fear the people of the land; for they are bread for us. Their defense is removed from over them, and Yahweh is with us. Don’t fear them.”

Joshua 2:9-11
World English Bible (WEB)

She said to the men, “I know that Yahweh has given you the land, and that the fear of you has fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt away before you. 10 For we have heard how Yahweh dried up the water of the Red Sea before you, when you came out of Egypt; and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites, who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and to Og, whom you utterly destroyed. 11 As soon as we had heard it, our hearts melted, and there wasn’t any more spirit in any man, because of you: for Yahweh your God, he is God in heaven above, and on earth beneath.

They will pursue you until you perish.

Ephesians 5:22-28
World English Bible (WEB)

22 Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ also is the head of the assembly, being himself the savior of the body. 24 But as the assembly is subject to Christ, so let the wives also be to their own husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the assembly, and gave himself up for it; 26 that he might sanctify it, having cleansed it by the washing of water with the word, 27 that he might present the assembly to himself gloriously, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without defect. 28 Even so husbands also ought to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself.
