|Have You Rejected
|by Tim Greenwood
you desire to live in God's system, which is Kingdom of God living,
then you will see positive results and success in your life. If you
truly desire to succeed in life, then now is the time to stop rejecting
His knowledge, trust Him and start putting His ways to work in your
The first step is living in love; which includes loving the Lord your
God and your neighbor. No hatred, no gossiping, no backbiting, no
unforgiveness. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. You heard of
this saying "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
People get confused about faith and how to use it, so the second step
is learning what true, Bible faith is. Hebrews 11:1 - Now faith is the
substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
The first three newsletters of 2011 have been about hope. Reread them,
study about hope - right from the pages of your Bible. Hope is
important. When Tim was sent home to die - we had no hope left! Get
back some hope in your life. Faith will cling to your hope and move you
forward to receive.
Do you see the words "the evidence of things NOT SEEN" (emphasis mine)
in Hebrews 11:1? This is where far too many people lose faith - they
want - no, they EXPECT to SEE what they are asking and praying for
before they receive it. But if you see something, why do you need faith
to receive it? Just grab it and go! You see and receive not from
physical sight, but by spiritual sight, right from your heart. This is
very important to learn - this lack of understanding can be a huge
obstacle for many.
God's Word is truth! Jesus told us over and over in the Bible that when
we ask anything in His name - to BELIEVE WE HAVE RECEIVED IT! Mark
11:24 "when you pray believe you HAVE RECEIVED what you asked for in
prayer and you WILL HAVE what you asked for."
This is the KEY to receiving! Well, you may ask, "how can I know God will give it to me?"
I John 5:14-15 - This is the confidence (or boldness we have to come
to Him) when we ask anything according to His will, we know that He
hears us and that we have what we asked for in prayer.
Your loving Father has stated very clearly in His Word what His will
is. The apostle Paul said He took time to write to you the WHOLE WILL
It is now up to each of us to learn God's will for us in His Word. Look
up the scriptures in the Bible that have the word "will" in them. Allow
God to talk to you and teach you, believe the Word and then do what it
says to do.
I want to make it clear to you that you WILL have to give up - just let
go - of many of your old ways of thinking. This is called "renewing the
mind." Throw out the old ways that do not work and put in God the
Creators way that works - all the time.
You will have to get rid of doubt and fear because they will steal and
destroy your faith. James 1:5 tells us that if you doubt, don't think
that you will receive from God. Why? It is opposite of His way of
living - by faith.
How do you get rid of the strongholds of doubt and fear? Romans 10:17 -
Faith comes by hearing and hearing the Word of God. You speak to that
stronghold, that spirit of doubt and fear and command it to leave you
in the name of Jesus. Your faith in God will rise to new heights and
take off -and what an adventure you will have!
Proverbs 4:20-22 - My words are life and health (or medicine) to your
whole body, including your mind, will and emotions. If you don't take
the medicine - you can't get better. "Well, I'll just look at the
bottle or read the Bible but not take what's inside"(acting on the
Word). Then be prepared to stay the same way you are now!
Joshua 1:8 Speak and meditate on the Word. Why? So you will do what it
says and then YOU SHALL MAKE your way prosperous and then you will have
Faith without actions is dead. You must "act" on your faith. A big
hindrance to receiving is our own mouths - what WE SAY. If you are
believing for healing in your body - you research God's Word about
healing. You learn that it IS His will for you to be well. Jesus went
about healing and doing good. He would not do anything opposite of
Mark 11:23 - you speak to the sickness and command it to leave your
body in the name of Jesus. This is actually taking part of the armor of
God and using the Sword of the Spirit (Eph. 6).
Well, Marcia, I just feel plain silly speaking to my body - what if
someone hears me? They may think "I've lost it." Do you want healing or
not? Maybe someone will hear you and you will be able to help them
receive something they need in their life. Sure, they may look at you
funny, they may talk and laugh about you behind your back, or maybe
even to your face - but one day you may just see them approach you
asking for your help and thanking you.
Do not speak the things that are. Such as: "I have cancer, diabetes,
skin rash" etc. If you are a born again, child of God - sickness has no
legal right to be on your body. Jesus has redeemed you from the curse
of the law (Gal. 3:13), (Duet. 28:15-61) ALL things are covered:
sickness, lack, poverty etc.
Prov. 3: 5-6 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart and in all your
ways acknowledge Him and He shall lift you up. Put your faith in Him
People are being battered left and right all around us - sickness,
financial problems, marriage problems, and people are lost, dying and
heading right into the waiting arms of the devil.
Psalm 103:3 All the diseases that attack you must go! Your benefits
package promises healing of all diseases. Oh, by the way - God does not
have to rewrite His benefits package to fit the economy of the present
day and time! He does not change.
You and I do not have to be ignorant of God's Word any longer! This is
the time to press into His Word; His way of living. He tells us that "I
know the plans I have to prosper you and give you a long life."
While the world's economy, religious system and even governments may be
in the dark and failing, you and I have the choice to live our lives
God's way so we can be the light that is shinning for them to come to.
PLEASE - If you are one that hears God's Word on how to get free of the
problems that are plaguing you and just roll your eyes, or wish that
person would shut up and turn away and change the subject - PLEASE do
not be that way any longer.
God wants to lavish His blessing, His very best on you. Jesus paid for
your forgiveness of sin, paid for your healing, paid for your
salvation, paid for you to live a good life - a life of victory!
Why not take a moment now and lift up your Shield of Faith (Eph. 6:16)
and praise and thank God for all He has given you, repent of rejecting
His knowledge in the past and just receive all He has given you.
When we learn to live and operate in God's system, we will never reject His knowledge again! TGM
