You know that there are principles in life that govern how things turn out.
Let’s look at a house builder. The most important part of a house is the foundation because the weight of that whole house depends on a foundation that is built right.
In the house building trades that are principles of building a good foundation. That foundation must have the proper amount of cement, rock, sand and water and a proper amount of drying time before building the house on it.
Without these building principles in the construction of the foundation you could build a beautiful mansion on the top of that foundation but unless good building principles are used in a matter of time that foundation would crumble and all the money that was spent on a beautiful mansion would be wasted as the house would finally fall down.
A jet pilot needs to have his aircraft completely checked out before he takes off to be sure everything is working right. For a jet aircraft to fly there are 2 principles that must be involved to have a safe flight. Those 2 principles are lift and thrust and those principles will need to operate continuously for the duration of that flight.
In reading through the Word of God many times in my life I have noticed that there are Biblical principles that determine a successful result as you apply them to your life.
There are 66 books in the Bible and each one has spiritual principles included in that book.
To go over a few areas of Biblical principles in the Bible there are principles of salvation, divine healing, love, finances, marriage and forgiveness.
The Spirit of God spoke to my spirit and told me that He wanted me to teach on faith. When I looked at my “categories” I realized that although I just taught on “BELIEVE” which is a result of your faith I have never taught on faith by itself in a series.
So guess what I am doing, being obedient to the Spirit of God and teaching on faith?
You have probably heard this term being said about faith that someone has made shipwreck of their faith?
Look at I Timothy 1:19: “Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away, concerning faith have made shipwreck.”
What is the Apostle Paul talking to his young protégé Timothy in this verse?
Here is an example of some people who started out in faith but somewhere along the line abandoned and walked away from faith and ended up in a shipwreck concerning their faith.
This is the reason why it is so important for you to use principles of faith from the Bible and not just what someone tells you because although they may be sincere in what they are telling you they can be sincerely wrong.
Always remember the Word of God is the final authority on this earth. It is the plumb line, it is the high water mark, it is the standard by which we start our Christian life and continue to use the principles of God’s Word all through our life. “Looking unto Jesus the AUTHOR AND FINISHER of our faith…”Hebrews 12:2
As I reflect back over my life I can see that God raises up men and women of God in order to emphasize principles of God’s Word in this world.
God has brought forth His important movements through revivals in men and women’s hearts that include the movement of holiness starting around the 1840’s and continuing into the early 1900’s. Then there was the Charismatic movement where Christian churches all over the world including all denominations experienced the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues which began around 1960.
Then came what is referred to as the faith movement.
E. W. Kenyon 1867-1948 is usually given credit as being the originator of the Word of Faith movement. Then it continued with other men and women of God.
Were all of these movements of God, absolutely they were?
Did all of them have some shortcomings where people got over into areas that were not Biblical and operated on principles that are not in God’s Word, yes they did?
Know this, when the Lord inspired these movements of God they were correct but over time some well meaning and some not so well meaning people took it in some directions that were not of God.
Did that mean the whole movement was not of God? Of course not.
Like the old saying goes don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.
In other words just because there were some excesses in the Word of Faith Movement or any of the other ones we need to hold on to the good, the part that lines up with the Word of God and discard the part that does not line up with God’s principles in His Word.
Being around during the Word of Faith Movement I saw some abuses of the principles of Bible faith but on the other hand it was a time of growth in Christian’s lives that has remained to this very day.
People all over the face of the earth benefited from the Word of Faith Movement and were able to bless others through increased Biblical faith as well as themselves.
As the years have gone by I have seen many of those ministers of the gospel that made fun of the Word of Faith Movement using the very scriptures in the Word of God that were used during the faith movement including international ministries on television.
It’s something how the truth of God’s Word always prevails, Amen? It may take some time but the truth of the Word of God always prevails.
We find that during the beginning of the New Testament Church in the Book of Acts that although satan and demonic beings tried to extinguish the New Testament Church that was born on the Day of Pentecost in Acts the 2nd chapter the Word prevailed and the Church of our Lord grew mightily. “So mightily grew the Word of God and prevailed.” Acts 19:20
As I mentioned we are going to be looking at principles of faith that will make your faith work and bring great blessings to yourself and others.
Let’s face it, in order to be a blessing to someone else you must be blessed yourself, Amen?
What is the definition of faith from Webster’s Dictionary? “Allegiance to duty or a person, belief and trust in and loyalty to God, firm belief in something for which there is no proof.”
Now let’s look at God’s definition of Bible faith: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
This is a very basic text about the principle of faith so this is an excellent place to start my ministry on “How Does Bible Faith Work For Me?
The reason why I believe I was led to use that title is that you can talk about faith all day long but you need to know that this Bible faith will absolutely work for you. Be sure you are using Bible principles not something someone said that doesn’t line up with the Word of God.
Looking back at our text I just gave you in Hebrews 11:1 this is God’s own definition of what faith is.
Let’s look at this scripture piece by piece.
One of the most important words in Hebrews 11:1 is the first word NOW.
Nita and I have ministered at the altar many times for people that have come up for prayer about everything you could imagine and some of which you probably would never think of.
We can usually tell when a person really has faith in the prayer that we agree with them on whether it is for finances, marriage, divine healing or whatever it is. The way we can tell is that some see that faith is always now others walk away thinking that someday I will get the answer to my prayers.
Remember I have been stressing the importance of using Biblical principles of faith to receive from the Lord.
If you say you have faith and it is not NOW then it is not faith. It is merely mental assent. It is not something that you know in your spirit that it has already happened when you prayed and believed you received it then, NOT LATER.
The first word in Hebrews 11:1 is NOW and NOW is present tense, right?
Some people never receive answers to their prayers believe they do not believe that what they prayed for is present tense, they use future tense and they become very discouraged after a while.
That discouragement is one of the main reasons why the Lord had me teach on faith as people need to use spiritual principles of faith in God’s Word in order to be successful.
You want to be successful in your faith, right?
Of course you do and by using these spiritual principles you will be successful in your walk of Christian faith, for sure.
Well we have started on a journey of building your faith into something that works for you and I will continue this journey on faith next Monday. Please plan to come back to our website for more ministry on faith and let someone else know about this teaching so that they can be blessed with God’s Word also.
We want to thank all of you that have prayed and given financially to this ministry.
Nita and I also greatly appreciate your effectual fervent prayers for this ministry as we know that prayer changes things and helps us accomplish all that the Lord has called us to do as we minister to the world on this ministry website.
We ask if the Lord has spoken to your heart to give financially to this ministry and that you believe this ministry has blessed your life that you will be obedient to the Spirit of God and give financially.

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.

If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a g mail to our website at: email@example.com and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
This includes the ones that not able to go to church because of disabilities and sickness or for one reason or another can’t attend church. Can you imagine how this Word of God would bless and comfort them? Please share this website with these folks also.
