New Testament Faith
2 Corinthians 5:7, ”For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
Romans 10:17, ”So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Hebrews 11:1, ”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Hebrews 11:6, ”But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who has reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and has given to us the ministry of reconciliation.” 2Corinthians 5:17-18. If there is one thing needed in the lives of Christians today, it is the revelation of God in them or we could say being God inside minded. This is not anything new as far as doctrine is concerned. Many preachers in the Word of Faith movement have been teaching us this for years.
Matthew 11:28-30 "Come unto me all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” God’s rest is where you cease from your own works, where the Holy Spirit begins to work in you; where you know that you are not your own, but absolutely possessed by God. The word “rest” means relief and ease and refreshment. It means recreation and blessed quiet. Jesus said my yoke is easy.
Colossians 1:15-16”He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers, all things were created through him and for him.” The word “image” is the word “eikon” in the Greek and it means likeness, outward and bodily image. It is the exact revelation and representation. The word “firstborn” is the word “protokos” meaning the firstborn of all creation.
1John 5:1,4-5” Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God. Whoever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcomes the world, but he that believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” Romans 8:37”Yet in all these things (persecution, tribulation, famine, nakedness, peril, sword) we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” The potential and possession of every believer is the fullness of Christ.
