Troubled Times (COVID-19 pandemic series)
Speak Faith, and the Same Belief
2 Corinthians 4:13-14
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
Paul starts in verses 7-9 about the treasure we have in these earthen vessels, how we are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; he gives us a litany of issues that we always recover from? Life is not the possession of this body of clay but the life born in the Spirit of God. We have the same Spirit of Faith, speaking what we believe for the cause of Christ—standing on the confidence of Jesus, who rose from a dead moral level to a living perpendicular.
Alpha & Omega— Revelations 1:8. He is Jesus the First and the Last. John chapter one tells us that "In the beginning was the Word…and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." Jesus was in the beginning as the Word of God. And He is God's final word for all eternity, and for this, we say thank you. For the speaking the same Spirit of Faith, we with a spirit of oneness lift praise. We declare and decree sacrificial blessings upon those who see beyond the flesh, so that; the Truth of the Spirit will rise within us and Glorify the Father. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
