TRANSFORMING TUESDAYS: Faith in a Vision From God Has Authority


Has God ever given you a vision?  I’m sure he has!  The first step in carrying out a vision properly is listening to God’s voice and being obedient to his will.  And also, you CANNOT doubt God!  He has NEVER failed us and it’s impossible for him to.  ß Just a friendly little reminder!

God ordered his twelve disciples to go and spread his goodness.  He gave them the authority to heal the sick and drive out demons.  Did you even realize that just as his twelve disciples, God has given us the authority to do the same.  Have you ever laid hands on someone and they were healed? Now of course the person has to have faith, but just know that God has given you power.  As the Bible tells us, faith can move mountains and so if you can believe it, it shall come to pass!

Next the Bible discusses how Jesus fed 5,000 people with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish.  The disciples told God to send the people out of the town and into neighboring towns to find something to eat, because they had nothing.  God replied and told the disciples to feed them with the little bit that they had, and the disciples hesitated.  They hesitated because they saw that it was impossible to feed all of those people with the little bit of food that they had.  They didn’t think beyond what they saw through their carnal eyes, although God called them and performed miracles before their eyes.  Why was this?  The same thing happened with Abram in Genesis.

Abram worried that his inheritance would be given to one of his servants in his house because he was childless.  The Bible says that God took him outside and told him to look up at the stars and that would be equivalent to the amount of heirs he would have.  Everyone knows that stars are impossible to count and there are so many of them, so just imagine the heirs of Abram!!! Even through all of this Abram had doubt, because he was seeing God’s plan through his carnal eye.  This is no different than the way that we think.

Often times our visions don’t even make sense to us and as long as we stay fixed on them with our carnal eye, WE DON’T PRODUCE RESULTS.  Don't forget that if HE said it, HE'LL do it.  Why can’t we trust him?  Why do we hesitate just as the disciples did, even though we ourselves are living proof of WHO HE IS and WHAT HE IS CAPABLE OF???

When God blesses you with a vision, believing in him is seeing your vision.  Trust God enough to know that he will NOT fail you.  We all have been or will be blessed with a vision, so for 2013 stop seeing with your carnal eyes, and start seeing through your spiritual eyes! God and his disciples were able to feed a multitude of people, even allowing room for leftovers and he gave Abram an abundant amount of heirs.  If he did it for them he can surely do it for you!

Lastly, trusting in a vision from God means taking up your cross and walking with him daily.  Remember that we are just passing through this world…this is not our last stop (Well I don’t consider it to be my last stop!). Our ultimate goal is heaven (that is where our reward lies) and so we must not be ashamed of who he is, and continue to trust in his plan for our lives.  Take up your cross in the way that you walk, the way you talk, the way you make others feel, the way others make you feel, and in your thoughts! Your vision ordained by God has authority!

  1. Good word we must walk by faith and not by what we see. God has not failed, so Why not trust?

  7. THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY MEN SHOULD USE THE BIBLE ALONE

    Should mankind use the Bible and the Bible alone for teaching faith and practice? If God's truth is the template for you, then the Bible should be your source for truth.

    THREE EXAMPLES OF WHY EXTRA-BIBLICAL SOURCES ARE NOT RELIABLE SOURCES FOR GOD'S TRUTH.

    1. Quote from Pope Francis May 22, 2013: "The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not evil. All of us. "But Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.' Yes he can..."The Lord has redeemed all of us,all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us not just Catholics Everyone! Father, the atheist? Even the atheists. Everyone! ....We must meet one another doing good. ' But I don't believe, Father, I am an atheist! But do good:we will meet one another there."

    2. Quote from Billy Graham October 20, 1997: "I think everybody that loves Christ, or knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ......He's calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world,or the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ,because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus, but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don't have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think they are saved, and that they're going to be with us in heaven."

    3. Quote from Doctrine of Covenants -section 130:22 (Mormon supposed divine revelations): The "Father has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man's; the Son also; but the Holy Ghost has not a body of flesh and bones, but is a personage of Spirit. Were is not so, the Holy Ghost could not dwell in us.


    GOD'S WORD IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE.
