God’s Sovereignty and Our Free Will to Receive by Faith
God’s sovereign control gives us the free will to turn on the “faith switch” to realize what God desires for us!
The Lord is on His throne in heaven and is in ultimate control. Through Jesus, the Kingdom of Heaven has come down to the earth by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (a) and continues to advance by crowds pressing into it (b), advancing within the hearts of men (c) here on the earth. Until Christ’s return, He will continue to accomplish His will inside men by the filling of His Holy Spirit, men who are in the world but no longer under the ruler of the god of this world, Lucifer, who blinds the minds of unbelievers (d). However, God gives His children all things that pertain to zoe genuine-life and godliness through the genuine, experiential, relational epignosis knowledge of Him” (e). Your healing is part of that zoe genuine-life. God wants this for you more than you do! So team up with Him! <Notes> a) Acts 2, b) the Greek’s meaning of Matthew 11:12, c) Luke 17:21, d) 2 Corinthians 4:4, e) 2 Peter 1:3.
However, God will never violate your free will, nor violate the gentleness of His nature (a). Because He created us in His image as the glory of God, He has given us a free-will like Himself. Instead, He says “choose this day whom you will serve. Choose this day – whether life or death” (b). We are either working with Him or against Him. There is no fence-straddling! <Notes> a) Matthew 11:29; Galatians 5:23, 6:1; 1 Corinthians 4:21; 2 Corinthians 10:1, b) Deuteronomy 30:19.
Trusting-relying-faith in the Lord and what He personally tells you through directly-spoken/heard prophetic rhema words is “The Light” switch: When it is on, then God’s “electricity” can flow from “The Power Source of Life” (the Lord) to you. When it is off, it cannot. The switch can’t be half on or half off – doubt is like that! “Faith” in Hebrew (OT) and Greek (NT) means “certain or sure pistis trusting reliance.” Trusting-relying-faith is like a glass of water that is completely full. He wants to pour into your life His healing presence, His Living Water, the Holy Spirit! When your glass is completely full (a), then you will then have a “certain knowing” of what He wants for you. James 1:6-7 says “Ask in trusting-relying-faith, with absolutely NO doubting (b), for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and then tossed back by the wind. That person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.” Trusting-relying-faith and doubt are opposites – if you have some of one you have none of the other! The “obedience is faith” is the logos gospel message of The Truth, the logos Word of God, for the New Covenant. The only 2 commandments to keep your eye on are “trusting-relying-faith and unconditional-love!” <Notes> a) not 99.99% with 0.01% doubt, b) the meaning of the Greek.
Have the courage to turn “The Light” switch on and get the results you are seeking! He alone is the Deliverer, the Savior. Jesus said to His close followers: “If you stay connected to Me, and My logos gospel message also stays in you, then you will really be My disciples (students and followers), and then you will experientially, relationally ginosko know The Truth, and The Truth will set you free. . . If the Son sets you free, then you will really be free” (a). Essentially, if you don’t grab the only life-preserver there is, you’ll eventually drown. <Notes> a) John 8:30-32.
