Religion prays and hopes for the best! Faith prays and mountains move, sicknesses flee, and victory is obtained.
Religion prays and hopes for the best with no assurance that God will answer its prayer.
Religion does not understand God’s Will and believes His will is a mystery. Therefore religious prayers are uncertain and filled with doubt therefore their prayers are not answered.
Faith understands the laws that govern prayer. They pray according to the Word of God. God’s Word is the substance to their prayers therefore they pray with great confidence and assurance God will grant them what He has promised them in His word. They understand that they are the heir of all God’s promises. He knows that God cannot lie therefore they know they will always get what they asked for. The prayer of faith will always move the mountain, heal the sick and obtain every promise in the Bible.
Religion says, “The days of miracles are passed!” Faith says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever!”
Remember, religion will always have an excuse for its lack of power. Nowhere in the Bible does it say the days of miracles are passed away. On the contrary, a Bible principle is "The latter house is greater than the former house."
The end time church will be greater and more powerful than the infant church in the Book of Acts. The doctrines of demons and of man have made the word of God of no effect.
Faith understands that Jesus never changes. He is the same as He was in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and in the Book of Acts. The true Christian Religion put its faith in the power of God and not the wisdom of men, unlike today's denominational religion. Faith believes the word of God, confesses the word of God, and stands fast on the word of God. When God’s word is believed in your heart and confessed with your mouth, it releases the power of God; the same power that Jesus had and the same power the church in the Book of Acts had.
Religion is powerless against the giants of our day! Faith will slay them all, for greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world!
Today we have giants of sickness and disease, poverty, fear, pride, divorce, sexual immorality, etc. Religion is powerless to help us stand against these evil spirits. Religion at best uses human reasoning to help the best that it can. However we need the anointing of God’s Spirit to break these chains around us so we can be free.
Faith understands that God’s power is in His anointed word and His Holy Spirit. Faith will equip you with the truths of the gospel and it will build us up as we are praying in the Holy Spirit and cause us to be ready for any giant that comes our way. For faith understands that the greater one lives inside of you. With God’s word in your heart and in your mouth no giant on this earth can stand against you.
Religion and the world do not have an answer for Cancer! Faith in God’s truth concerning your redemption will cure you of Cancer every time!
There is no cure for Cancer and many other diseases. Once you have been afflicted it is just a matter of time until the disease kills you.
Religion will point you to the doctor/medical science and hope for the best. It will tell you that God is allowing this for some mysterious reason. It may even tell you that God will be glorified in your death.
If your god cannot heal you, what is the point in having a god?
If your god can heal you but chooses not too you are foolish to serve such a creature.
Faith understands that all sickness and disease in judgment for sin. All sickness and disease is recorded in the curse of the Law (Deuteronomy 28:15-67). It is the law of sin and death. Jesus frees us from the law of sin and death by bearing our sin and our judgment for sin on the cross (Romans 8:1-3). He took His own blood into the tabernacle in heaven and placed His blood on the Mercy Seat in heaven. His blood testifies to God that your sins have been paid for in full, therefore NO ONE can judge you. Cancer is judgment for sin. It has no legal right to afflict you. You must take your case before God night and day until He judges in your behalf and makes the Cancer leave your body. If you will speak to the mountain called Cancer and command it to leave you and if you do not doubt in your heart but believe the word of God that is coming out of your mouth, the mountain called Cancer will move. Jesus redeemed you from Cancer at the cross. If you will stand on this Rock the gates of hell (Cancer) cannot prevail against you (Matthew 16:18).
Religion has no power against Cancer for it is a giant that mocks religion, medical science, and nutrition. Faith will use God’s word as a sword and slay Cancer and feed its carcass to the birds, just as David slew Goliath!
Cancer is a giant that mocks religion, medical science and nutrition. It is an incurable disease. Medical science and nutrition can slow it down sometimes, and even cause it to go into remission. However it will come back, and normally it comes back with a vengeance and it will take your life. Religion has NO POWER against Cancer or any other sickness or disease. Religion is POWERLESS.
Faith knows exactly what Cancer is. It is a spirit of infirmity. Jesus would have called it the devil (Acts 10:38).
Jesus has given the church power over all devils to cast them out and to heal all kinds of sickness and diseases. Jesus defeated all sickness at the cross for SURELY Jesus bore our sicknesses/diseases and carried our pains (Isaiah 53:4). Cancer's great weapon against you is fear. Just as the entire nation of Israel feared Goliath, so does the church as a whole fears Cancer. However, you can choose to be like David and understand that this disease is not coming against you but against your God. Therefore, you are well able to slay this uncircumcised giant called Cancer with the word of God in your heart and in your mouth.
Religion says, “God does not heal everyone!” Faith says, “If anyone is going to get healed it’s going to be me for all the promises of God are yes and amen."
Religion understands that some people do get healed but if it’s an incurable disease most do not get healed. Therefore religion comes to the conclusion that God does not heal everyone. This uncertainty of religion strips you of any faith to stand when the storm of disease comes against you.
Faith understands that you are the redeemed of the Lord. God demonstrated His great love for you at the cross. Faith understands that you are a child of God and highly favored by God. It knows that you have received a glorious inheritance from the Father that rightfully belongs to you. Faith knows God therefore faith will stand knowing what God will do. He will not withhold from you what is rightfully yours, for healing is the children’s bread.
Religion says, “This man died of a sickness, so that proves it’s not always God’s will to heal!” Faith says, “I don’t build my life on someone’s experience. I build my life on the unchangeable word of God!”
Religion lives by sight and not by faith. It lets someone’s experiences dictate what is truth. It does not know the difference between a fact and the truth. It may be a fact that brother "so-and-so" died an early death, but that does not change the word of God which is the truth.
Faith has settled it in his heart that God’s word is the truth and it does not change. No matter what happens in someone’s life, the word of God is forever settled and it does not change. The truth that Jesus bore your sins on the cross will save every human being on this earth if they believe it. The truth that Jesus bore your judgment for sin will heal every human being on this earth if they believe it.
If you are going to use this argument then you would have to say, “Brother 'so-and-so' committed a sin, so that proves it’s not always God’s will to forgive!”
No! At the cross God made provision for man’s sin. So if a person sins, provision has already been made to forgive them.
In the same way God made provision for man’s sicknesses/diseases at the cross. So if a person gets sick, provision has already been made to heal them of their sickness/disease.
You simply possess your forgiveness and you’re healing with your faith.
Religion says, “I’m just believing God to heal me.” Faith says, “I believe 1 Peter 2:24 that proclaims, “By Jesus stripes I am healed!”
Religion believes that God has the power to do anything. He can heal you if He chooses to. However religion does not know God nor does it understand God’s character or His ways. It prays and asked God to heal but has no clue if God will answer your prayer. It is very easy for Satan to get you in doubt and unbelief when you are not certain of God’s will. He will steal your healing every time.
Faith understands what took place on the cross. It understands redemption. Therefore it will stand on 1 Peter 2:24 and other scriptures that promise healing to the redeemed. Faith believes that Jesus bore our sins and our judgment for sin on the cross. Therefore faith will believe the promise of healing in its heart and it will confess God’s promises of healing night and day until it gets the promise.
Religion does not understand how to stand on God’s word. It lives by sight and makes excuses for being powerless. It does not understand the power in God’s redemptive word. It hopes for the best but is uncertain of what God will do.
Faith understands that Jesus has paid the price in full for His people to walk in health and get healed every time they are afflicted or injured. Faith will stand on Psalm 103 that proclaims that God heals all your sicknesses/diseases. Faith believes God’s word is true therefore it boldly proclaims it out of your mouth. His redemptive word believed in your heart and coming out of your mouth will heal you every time.
Jesus was identified by two predominate things.
Faith understands that Jesus’ blood justifies you from all sin and Jesus’ broken body bore the judgment for your sins. In a faith church God’s confirms His word by forgiving you and by healing you. Jesus said if you drink my blood and eat my body you abide in me and you will have life. You drink Jesus’ blood by believing His blood justifies you and redeems you from every lawless deed. You eat His body by believing He bore your judgment for sin and redeemed you from the entire curse of the Law. These two truths are the Rock on which we stand and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it.
