Mt 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance (perisseuoo): but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Who ever receives by faith can enter into a state of excess or abundance.
This is the anointing of mustard seed faith.
As to state of our most innermost being, our reality and existence, we must breakthrough into a place where we function from a state of abundance which faith brings. Our inmost spirit must come into a state of excess and abundance as to the things that we are believing for. God responds more to faith than to need. He responds more to the abundance of what we are believing for and what we hold in our hearts than to the poverty and need of unbelief. He responds to the child like faith that allows us to receive from Him before we can see it.
Rom 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Faith is a law. A law releases within specific circumstances, specific results.
2Co 10:15 Not boasting of things without our measure, that is, of other men’s labors; but having hope, when your faith is increased, that we shall be enlarged by you according to our rule abundantly,
Literal: When your faith grows, by it, we will come into a place of abundance in all of the things pertaining to God. There is a rule of abundance in the Spirit.
Mat 14:19 And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.
20 And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.
Literal: They were filled or fully satisfied. (Aorist/ passive). The Aorist tense is defined as a photographic snapshot on the time line of history. The passive describes a state of being or of existence.
They took up ( airo) to lift or carry something up.
That remained; Periseuoo- excess, overflow and abundance.
These scriptures define an important scriptural principle. By faith we must breakthrough into a realm of spiritual reality which obtains abundance and excess as pertains to the things of the kingdom of God.
Jesus gave them the food and after it was physically lifted by the disciples, what was left was an abundant remains of fragments of food.
What the Lord gives to us, we must lift it up into a spiritual realm of excess and abundance. This is how the mysteries of the kingdom of work. This is the anointing of mustard seed faith. We make it grow by knowing that everything which God gives to us is increased and multiplied by us into abundance and excess.
Please look with me at the next scriptures.
Matt 15:20 And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more.
21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
Literal: Good slave and one who believes. This is why he was a good slave, because he was faithFULL, or full of faith. His faith had caused him to double what Jesus had given to him. This the mustard seed faith anointing.
I will make thee ruler ( kathisthemi: Taking authority over something which is standing)
The good and believing servant had pressed through into receiving an additional five talents by faith. This is now his point of authority. He had taken authority over the original 5 talents which had been standing before him and now had gotten another 5.
29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.
Literal: To the one living in a realm of having in his spirit.. shall be given ( passive.)
The passive voice talks about realm, state, or reality. The one who has, shall live in a realm of being given more, and more, until he has an excess and an abundance. This is Paul’s rule of abundance in Corinthians.
This is also in the passive voice. To the one who lives in a realm of having, God will place him in the realm where He gives more to the individual, because God is attracted to his faith. This realm of giving by God will be in the realm of the exceeding abundance. It becomes a way of life for that believer, if he lives by the anointing of mustard seed faith.
Ro 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
Ro 5:17 For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
“Grace”: ( God’s superhuman labor) also operates in excess and abundance. It is revealed by our faith.
Luke 9:16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.
17 And they did eat, and were all filled: and there was taken up of fragments that remained to them twelve baskets.
Once again the principle of multiplication by simple faith.
Jesus gives and what is picked up by faith is in the excessive abundance. It’s like the rod of Moses turned into a snake. We must turn what God gives to us into excessive abundance.
We must ask God for a breakthrough in our thought patterns. We must get out of our normal thinking patterns. God is “atypical” by our standards, in the operation of His thinking and acting. As Jesus transformed water into wine, or passed through the crowd that was going to kill him, or walked through the walls of a locked home to encounter his disciples after His death; we must learn to think and act like Him.
Mustard seed faith operates, into taking the little that Jesus gives to us and transforming into excessive abundance in the spirit world and pressing in and receiving from it. It can all occur in one moment. This is the rod of Moses now given to us.
John 6:11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would.
12 When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost.
“When they were filled” Literal: After they were satiated…then they gathered up in excess! Can you see this? Satiated and excess, in the Spirit, are laws of the kingdom.
13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled (Gemizo) twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
Filled ( Gemizo) replete, covered over. This word gemizo is found in Rev 4:6 describing the abounding number of eyes upon the living beasts.
Re 4:6 And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full (gemizo) of eyes before and behind.
Let’s study the scriptural principle of the faith which Jesus wants us to enter in.
What Jesus gives to us, by faith, we must receive it until we are satiated with it. To him who has, more will be given. We transform this into excess and abundance by faith, covered over, chock-full, pressed down, and shaken together, all in one instance. Remember the rod of Moses.
This process can begin in an instance if our minds become free from a boxed up customary way of thinking into a transcendental and atypical thinking that goes beyond, over and through the closed doors of worldly circumstances.
Ac 16:5 And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.
Literal Greek: The church abounded into excess, arithmetically speaking, per meeting. Mustard seed faith in operation! Just believe for your churches to grow arithmetically.
Ro 5:15 But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded <4052> unto many.
Literal; We know about the 9 charismatic gifts of the Spirit in 1Cor 12. Grace, or the superhuman labor of God, is likewise a charismatic gift. It is given freely as we receive it. As with every other charismatic gift, it will be manifested in excess abundance by the anointing of mustard seed faith.
Ro 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound <4052> in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Hope is expectation. We receive by expectation. Expectation, is a charismatic gift that can be manifested in excessive abundance by our faith. We can begin to receive excessively abundantly, by excessive abundant expectation, which is brought about by the excessive abundant grace or God’s superhuman labor. All is revealed by faith.
1Co 14:12 Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel <4052> to the edifying of the church.
Paul commands us to possess spiritual gifts in excessive abundance.
1Co 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding <4052> in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
The works of God in the Spirit must become excessive abundant.
2Co 3:9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory, much more doth the ministration of righteousness exceed <4052> in glory.
The glory of God in the ministry of the Spirit is transcendental and excessive abundant. We must enter into that realm of glory.
2Co 8:7 Therefore, as ye abound <4052> in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound <4052> in this grace also.
Press in into the realm and reality of excessive abundant faith, excessive abundant charismatic gifts, and excessive abundant giving of all sorts.
Php 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound <4052> yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment;
The love of God is a charismatic gift that can excessively abound in us by faith.
