Windows On The Word Videos Are Now In Full Production
Has God ever asked you to do something that you had no idea how to accomplish?

A few years ago, during my yearly advance, God asked me to begin focusing on producing short, interesting, and informative videos.

Having no budget for a project like this we purchased a couple of consumer video cams, pulled out a pair of tripods and after a little planning made some cardboard cue cards and shot some video during our vacation times. Well, to make a long story short, even though the content was good, we weren't satisfied with the quality of the video or audio of what we had produced and decided to start over.

After a significant period of research, a steep learning curve and some expert advice, we established a budget and purchased the software and the camera, sound and lighting equipment recommended for producing the type of videos we had in mind, and began shooting new videos.

Now we understand why movies are so expensive and time consuming to produce. It can be really difficult to wear so many hats at the same time: being the script writer, talent, cameraman, sound technician, electrician, grip and video editor while Marcia wears the hats of: script editor, director, porter, caterer, and stand-in for framing and focusing shots.

I must say though, that Marcia has really gotten into directing. Now, whenever she wants me to be quiet, whether we are shooting video or not, she just yells "CUT!" 

At the writing of this article we have shot footage for eleven new videos, have edited five, but have more planned for this year and next.

Should any of you like to become part of this exciting new phase of our internet ministry and reach thousands of individuals with the good news of what Jesus has done for them; feel free to contact us to either help us financially offset the costs involved in this project or perhaps even volunteer to wear one or more of these many hats during one or more of our future shoots.

How Does One "Build" His Faith?
by Tim Greenwood

Your FAITH is tangible, valuable and it is measurable. In actuality, it refers to what bankers and lawyers call good faith contractual relationships or contracts.

According to Romans 10:17, a good faith contract begins with an offer which you must hear about. If that offer gives you the hope of providing a solution to one of your wants, desires or needs, then you must evaluate the offer's validity by reading the offer firsthand and evaluating  the reputation of the one making the offer.

If based upon that hope and your belief that the offer was made in good faith and you decide to take that offer, then you do so by converting it into a good faith contractual relationship (contract) between you and the one making the offer, and commit to that contract verbally or otherwise to activate it.

Now I said all of that to prepare for this:
Just as your contract is based on the validity of the offer and the reputation of the one making the offer, your faith, belief and confidence for healing or whatever, must be based upon an actual good faith offer made by a reputable source.

Let's say the source of that offer, say for healing, is Father God through Bible scripture. Take the scripture Isaiah 53:5, which states that He (Jesus) was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed - and you read it yourself to validate the offer.

Let's say that offer provides you with hope for your healing, you believe that offer is valid, and you believe that Father God made that offer to you in good faith. Now you are to convert the offer into a good faith contractual relationship (contract) between you and God by taking God up on the offer and committing to it verbally or otherwise.

Now, if you just signed a contract with anyone else you might still have a few lingering doubts about their good faith. But you just signed a contract with Father God Who has NEVER failed to keep His word, has NEVER failed to do exactly what He said He would do, has NEVER failed to fulfill a contract, agreement or promise, and guarantees His good word with His Godhead.  In short - God's word is always good.

1John 5:14-15 says that this is the kind of confidence that we can have in the Lord, that, if you ask anything that He has already offered you in good faith throughout the Bible, then you already know that He will always grant you audience to come to Him and to ask for it.

And since you know that He's going to grant you the audience, then you also know that whatever you ask of Him concerning those offers, actually, is already as good as yours.

If I were you, I wouldn't wait to start celebrating my healing! You may not as yet be able to detect any change with your 5-senses, but based upon your contract with God and His perfect reputation you should begin celebrating your healing - because you already KNOW that it belongs to you.

Another reason for you to be regularly celebrating and thanking God for your healing is the fact that maybe YOUR reputation for keeping YOUR word, fulfilling YOUR contracts, agreements or promises hasn't been that great.  God is NOT going to breach your contract, but He is not so sure about YOU. 

Regularly celebrating and thanking God for your healing, even before you detect any manifestation of that healing, is YOU reassuring God that you are still fully 100% operating in good faith as to fulfilling YOUR part of your contractual relationship.

Do you want to please God? Operate in faith or good faith - always. Operate in good faith with God and operate in good faith with your fellow man.

Hebrews 11:6 says that it is impossible to please God without operating in faith or good faith.

How does one "build" his faith?  One after another, convert God's offers that you find in the Bible into contracts, commit to them and successfully fulfill them in good faith - from one good faith contract to the next and to the next and to the next - as an ongoing way of life.  TGM
