From Hope (Future) To Faith (Now)

Date: 10 December 2023

Speaker: Kobus Swart

In this teaching we are looking at the importance and function of true FAITH, without which it is impossible to please God.  NOW faith celebrates as certain what hope visualizes as future. When we look at Scriptures such as “God’s divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness…”  (2 Peter 1:3),  then we must ask ourselves whether it is still a future reality (hope) that we are waiting for, or is it manifesting already in our lives now. Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  Jesus also taught us to pray “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done – on earth as it is in heaven.”  Only true faith will bring the unseen into the realm of the visible.  When we take time to meditate on that which God has already given to us, the reality will begin with thoughts in our hearts (not our mind…), followed by imagination, then the time will come when we will speak creatively. May Christ through your faith (actually) dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home)in our hearts! May you be rooted in love and founded securely IN LOVE! (Eph. 3:17 AMPL.)
