I have been teaching on Bible faith in this series of ministry and would like to look at how you can protect your faith while you are believing the Lord for answers to your prayers.
Satan’s most potent thing that he will try to trip you up with in your faith walk is deception. He used it first in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve and to this day it is his chief weapon to come against you.
Deception is a lie that is portrayed as the truth by satan.
Satan will attack you through your feelings.
Therefore I want to share some important ways to keep your faith even in the toughest of times.
The first way you can maintain strong faith is to trust God and His Word.
“God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent; hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?” Numbers 23:19
You can absolutely count on God and His Word. God and His Word are one and they are never changing.
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Hebrews 13:8
I grew up as a small boy seeing this scripture over the altar every time I walked into the church. It left a very powerful and steadfast image of the Lord and His Word in my life. God and His Word are unmovable.
As you are believing in God for an answer to your request to receive healing in your body, a better job that will provide for your family, a restored family or whatever you are believing the Lord for you can have complete peace that no matter what chaos you are going through He is saying to you, “PEACE BE STILL.”
The Lord will come to you in your darkest hour and talk to you and give you victory and comfort in your life. He will encourage you and lift you up like no one on earth can do no matter how much they love you. No one can love and comfort you more than the Lord through the Holy Spirit in your life.
There is no short cut for reading and meditating on the Word of God each day and having a time of fellowship with the Lord in pray. Those things will build your faith and confidence in Him.
The more time you spend in fellowship with the Lord, just talking to Him and telling him how you feel the more you will get to know Him and that will build confidence and trust in Him.
Next it is important that you are able to see in the spirit realm what you have requested in prayer and you are believing for the answer.
“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24
This verse is talking about 2 different realms. First it is talking about the spiritual realm and then it is talking about the physical realm.
So many people have problem with this verse and it is a basic verse for getting answers to your prayers.
Of course one of the problems is that we live in a physical world and even Christians become so used to this physical world that they want to see it and touch it before they believe it.
Remember I said in the opening of the teaching but it needs to be repeated again that satan wants to tell you that you cannot believe anything that you cannot see.
Satan wants to defeat you and keep you in this natural realm and the Lord and His Word operates in the spiritual realm so we must become familiar with the spiritual realm of God and use it.
Let’s look at Mark 11:24 piece by piece: “What things soever ye desire when you pray…” God is interested in your desires as long as they line up with the Word of God and He wants to grant you those desires.
So He says when you pray for those desires: “…believe that ye receive them…” Here is where the Lord is talking about the spiritual realm. In the Book of Genesis, God spoke the Word and He created the heavens and the earth. Every time God spoke He saw what He was saying as already done in the spiritual realm and then it appeared in the natural realm so it could be seen of man.
God is a spirit and we are spirit beings and we need to learn to operate in the spiritual realm of God.
When you pray about something Mark 11:24 tells you how you are going to receive it. Right at the time you are praying, (not Later) you are to believe that what you prayed is already done in the spiritual realm. You need to picture your healing done at the instant you prayed for it. See yourself walking normal if you have problems with your legs.
Or if you are believing for money to come to you, see that amount of money that you are believing for is laying in your hand. This is the spiritual part of Mark 11:24.
Then Mark 11:24 says: “and ye shall have it.” When you first believe you have the answer to your prayer and you can see it in the spiritual realm then comes: “ye shall have it.” This is the natural realm.
So you believed when you prayed and saw your answer to your prayer in the spiritual realm and that activates it to come into the physical realm.
Some people expect the answer to come into the natural realm without them ever believing it is already done in the spiritual realm first.
Another way to keep your faith working is to keep away from sin in your life.
Sin and faith do not mix like water and oil do not mix.
If satan cannot stop your believing for the blessings of God in your life he will try to get you into a situation of sin.
For instance he will try to get you into a situation where you have unforgiveness toward another person.
“Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:31-32
How do you do that?
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9
Keeping your faith working involves patience on your part.
“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. For ye have need of PATIENCE that, after you have done the will of God, ye might inherit the promise.” Please see Hebrews 10:35-36
I know patience is not easy, it is not easy for any of us but in order to receive blessings from the Lord you will need to develop patience.
Some of the answers to prayers that I have made came soon after I prayed and some even right away but others had me standing in faith for years but they have come to pass. It took patience on my part, it was not easy but you need to trust the Lord that answers come in His timing which will always be the very best time for you.
We cannot see that timing but He can.
Praise and thank the Lord for the answer to your prayers before you see them. Worship Him.
I heard a preacher since a few days ago say that some Christians wonder why they don’t get many answers to their prayers. The preacher said it could be because they have never really thanked the Lord for the prayers He has already answered for them.
Why was King David loved by the Lord so much? Because he was a thankful person to the Lord. He praised and worshipped God very often.
What is the will of God?
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Please see scripture 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Notice the Lord is not saying to praise Him FOR everything because some of what you go through are hard times we all go through them, but instead it says IN everything you go through give thanks and praise to the Lord.
Why is this so important?
Because when you are thanking and praising the Lord in the midst of tribulations you are showing faith and trust in the Lord and the Lord will honor that.
I know these principles for keeping your faith working will help you, they have helped me over the years to get through some hard times and come out victorious through Jesus Christ as my helper and my Savior.
We want to thank all of you that have prayed and given financially to this ministry.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
