A Primer On Miracles

A Primer in Miracles (INCOMPLETE!!)

Understanding the Immediacy and Timelessness of (The Non Existence of the Dimension of Time) Ministry in Miracles

The Immediacy of Faith (The Non Existence Time in Faith)

Mat 8:8  The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word ( Greek: a word)) only, and my servant shall be healed.

 Mat 8:9  For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go (aorist), and he goeth; ( present ) and to another, Come,( present) and he cometh;(present) and to my servant, Do this (aorist), and he doeth it(present).

10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you,

The “aorist tense” in the Greek, can be compared to our “past tense” in the English. However, the Greek aorist tense is more powerful than our English past tense.

This verb tense has the element of “punctiliar action.” This word is defined as a “punctuation” or “punctuation mark” in the timeline of history.

Whenever we place a question mark, a period, and a comma as we write, we insert a mark with our pens in the sequence of time and go on writing. This one single event jotted down in one moment of time, is called punctiliar action.  I call the use of the aorist tense, “punctuation in time.”

At the moment that we asked in accordance to the will of God it was jotted down in history’s progressive timeline marked completed and accomplished.

The aorist tense is also called the “timeless aorist” or the “aorist of immediate consequences.’

The aorist tense has the element of timelessness.  The dimension of time does not exist.  Therefore, in faith, what is believed for in accordance to God’s will simultaneously coincides with, and occurs upon the moment that God gave it to us.

Our asking and the giving by God is one in the same.

This is the timelessness and immediate consequence of the aorist tense.

The Immediacy of the Fullness of God: Knowing that the Whole Essence and Fullness of the “I AM” Of God in Christ is Constantly and Continually Present in Ministry

 John 8:58  Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. (I am (present tense)

 John 8:24  I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am  (I am (present tense) he (“He”; is not in the original Greek), ye shall die in your sins.

 John 8:28  Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am(I am (present tense) he (“He”; is not in the original Greek), and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.

 Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you (I with you am (present tense) always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

The fullness of the essence of God in Christ as “I AM” is always found in the present and immediate tense.

God supersedes the dimension of time.   God’s power will not be sent to us in the future.  His healing will not take place in the future.  His revival fire will not be poured out upon us in the future.

At the moment that He reveals that these things are for us they are forevermore and immediately there.

We live with God in a timeless dimension where everything is in THE IMMEDIACY OF THE NOW.

Mark 14:62  And Jesus said, I am (I am (present tense): and ye shall see the Son of man sitting(continually and constantly ruling and reigning….) On (Christ’s energy/ fuel source is power; the world in which Christ operates is God’s power; and God’s power  does the work through Christ)  the right hand of power, and coming(continually and constantly) in the clouds of heaven.

As we live and minister in the timeless dimension of the immediacy of Christ’s continual “I AM ness”, His presence is always coming and is constantly present, in the sphere of God’s power.

John 8:12  Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am(I am (present tense): the light of the world: he that followed  (my same road and the same life that I live) (FOLLOWING) (Present participle) me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

He that is constantly following Christ in His life and path is guaranteed to have Christ as his continuing light because the presence of Christ is in the timeless immediacy of the continual now.  This is the walk of faith.

If we speculate in unbelief and worry about the future, we lose the Christ of the timeless now and will see only darkness. As we continually obey and follow God, Christ, as the light of the timeless now, will give us enough light for us to see our next step in our walk of faith with Him.

John 8:42  Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth (God is Christ’s energy/ fuel source; God is the world in which Christ operates; and God Himself does the work through Christ, in Christ’s ministry) and came (Defined as :”Arrival” Christ is in a continuing and continual state of arrival ) from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

“Came” – This infrequent word describes to come in context of arriving or arrival. Christ has arrived from God into our world, or more correctly because it is in the present tense, Christ is in a continual state of arrival, which is the timeless immediacy of the continual now of His presence. It is imperative that we ask God to deliver us into His world of the dimensionless ness of time. As long as see God as doing things for us in the future we will never function in miracles.

John 16:28  I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: (I have come into the world system Perfect Tense)  again, I leave (I am constantly and continually releasing the world system)  the world, and go (I am constantly and continually journeying to  constantly and continually fellowship with the father) to the Father.

The perfect tense describes an event that has been accomplished and fully carried out in the past, but has an influence and an impact eternally forevermore. Jesus coming onto our world system is described in the perfect tense. His coming and presence for us is therefore in the timeless immediacy of the continual now.  At the very same moment that Jesus is timelessly and immediately here, He is timelessly and immediately releasing Himself from the world system to timelessly and immediately fellowship with the Father.

John 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in (Locative- in the world of)  God.

Jesus works are created energized, exercised, produced, and performed in the sphere or in the world of, and by God Himself.

 John 14:10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in(Locative- in the world of) me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth (present participle- the continuing abiding in the world of the Spirit; necessary to produce miracles)  in me, he doeth(Present tense- the father performs the miracles in proportion to our abiding in the world of the Spirit) the works.

We have the timeless immediacy of faith at our disposal, as well as the continual and timeless immediacy of Jesus’ presence.  However, the continual and timeless immediacy of Jesus’ presence is also with the Father at the same moment that it with us. This guarantees the absolute effectiveness of our ministry, in that it is the Father who originates, energizes, produces and executes the works through Jesus. Christ’s presence with us in its timeless immediacy generates the works of the Father in their absolute perfection and effectiveness through us. This is because His presence is also in the timeless and continual fellowship with the Father.

John 8:14  Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know(Intuitive knowledge Perfect Tense)  whence I came, and whither I go ( Where I continually and constantly go)  ; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

The perfect tense describes an event that has been accomplished and fully carried out in the past, but that its occurrence has an influence and an impact for us now and eternally forevermore.

Jesus intuitively and instinctually knows not only from where He comes but where He plans to go and what He plans to do.  We do not need to, cannot, and must not manipulate the power of God.

The power of God operates exclusively and independently of us. It has nothing to do with us.  Jesus intuitively knows with absolute certainty what He plans to do. BEWARE OF TRYING TO MANIPULATE GOD’S POWER TO SOLVE OUR PROBLEMS BY THROWING FINANCIAL FORMULAS AT HIM.

Our bodies are the grocery shopping carts that carry God’s power to its destination. God uses our hands and mouths to take the power out of our bodies and into the world. Once that this happens God exclusively and independently of us does what He wills through His power.

Mark 5:30  And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue (Miracles & Miraculous Powers had gone out of Him) <1411> had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

Greek: Power proceeding from him had then gone forth with the sense of direction, purpose, and destination. The Independent activity of God’s power apart from our own actions

Luke 6:19  And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

For dunamis power was going out from Him with the sense of direction, purpose, and destination

The Independent activity of God’s power apart from our own actions

Ephesians 4:6  One God and Father of all, who is above all Upon All, and through The absolute instrumentality of God  all, and in We are God’s sphere or the location/world where God works in you all.

As we have studied in the previous section, the work of God through the Person of Christ is timeless in dimension. God’s command (by the rhema word in our Spirit,) and its occurrence, both are superimposed one upon the other at the very same moment in the timeline of progressive history. God says it, and it happens.

Christ’s presence in fellowship with us and in this world is always in the timeless immediacy of the continual now.  So is also is His presence in fellowship with the Father.

We must know that it is God’s nature to dwell in and operate in the world of the human believer.  Because God’s timeless nature lives in the “immediacy of the continual now” He, in the Person of Christ, is now constantly and continually, dwelling, and operating in us.

“Through all”: Because God dwells and operates in the world of the human believer He can then do His works through the same human believer.  This is called the instrumentality of God, or God making Himself the instrument of executing all of His works through us, sovereignly and independently of what we are doing.

Our job is to see what He does inside of us from moment to moment and duplicate it into the natural world from moment to moment.

 John 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in (Locative- in the world of)  God.

Jesus works are founded, created, energized, produced, and exhibited in the sphere or in the world of, and by God Himself.

John 14:10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Greek: The Father in or inside of  “ME”, is.

It is essential to know that the “ME or I” in our lives has now become Christ. This will help us in hearing the Lord.

Gal 2:20  I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Greek: Yet no longer I, but lives in the world that defines “ME”, Christ.

Location, Instrumentality, and Miracles

John 14:10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Greek: The Father in me continually abiding, He habitually; or He out of His habit, from moment to moment does the works. The father’s habit is to always instrumentally do His works. The more that we live in the world of the Father the more that we will see the Father work back through us, for this is His normal habit.

In me continually abiding (Dwelling in the world of Jesus)

Does the works. (Instrumentality)

John 10:30  I and my Father are one. (Present tense)

Greek: “I and the Father one are” A perfect and continuous exchange of place in the Father and the instrumentality of the father’s works back through Jesus.

31  Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.

32  Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

 John 10:38  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

Greek: That in me the Father and I in Him

That in me the Father (Instrumentality)

I in Him (Dwelling in the world of the Father)

John 14:9  Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

 10  Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

Greek: I in the Father (Dwelling in the world of the Father) and the Father in me (Instrumentality).

11  Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

Greek: I in the Father (Dwelling in the world of the Father) and the Father in me (Instrumentality)

The above four instances out of the Book of John teach us an important principle in the working of miracles. In every instance Jesus teaches us the connection between Him either dwelling in the sphere of the Father, or the Father dwelling in the sphere of Jesus, and the Father instrumentally, or by His own independent power and activity executing His works back through Jesus is the key to working in miracles.

Our Location and Instrumentality with God

John 14:20  At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.

Greek: I in my Father, and you in me and I in you.

Jesus now teaches us that the believer lives with the Father and the Son in the same perfect exchange of location and instrumentality as the Father and the Son themselves enjoy. This is because Jesus lives in the world of the Father so that the Father simultaneously executes His works back through Jesus.

Now we also see that the believer has been placed in the world of Jesus so that Jesus can instrumentally work back His works through the believer.

In reality God works through Jesus and back into us because we are in the world of Jesus and Jesus is in the world of the Father. The believer is God’s channel for God to take the invisible works of His kingdom and manifest them into them through Jesus and then visibly through them into the world order. The exact and same ability to perform miracles just as Jesus did dwells in us.

John 5:20  For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.

 John 10:32  Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed  you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

Shew: To exhibit, produce as evidence, and make plain to the eyes. We have the ability to see God’s works in us plainly from moment to moment.

John 17:11  And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

Greek: In order that they may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way as us.

As the Son lives continuously from moment to moment in the world of the Father, the Father superimposes back upon those very same moments His works back through the Son.

We must remember the timeless immediacy of the continual now in the workings of God.

In Jesus priestly prayer in John 17, He asks of the Father that the believers could operate in exactly this very same fashion. The present subjunctive tense is one that emphasizes the will of the person.  In other words the believer is not guaranteed that automatically he or she will operate in the timeless immediacy of continually dwelling in the world of God so that God can continually work His works back through them.

Though positionally this is the true for every believer, the manifested reality of God from moment to moment flowing in His works back through the believer can only come as the believer dwells in the world of God from moment to moment.

To abide in Jesus is the same as living from moment to moment in the world of Jesus.

John 15:5  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Greek paraphrase: He that as a habit of life continually lives from moment to moment in my world, the same will habitually from moment to moment bear fruit.

At any moment that he separates from living in my world he will find himself void of my dunamis power to accomplish anything.

Below we see three instances of the term “on me” or “on him” In reality this word is defined as INTO or FUNNELED INTO.

The believer that has his life and heart into Jesus or funneled into Jesus can only be the believer that from moment to moment lives in the world of Jesus or abides in Him continually. The promises of God working back through this believer speak for themselves.

John 6:28  Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

 John 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

 John 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

 John 17:21  That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

Greek: that they may be one in exactly the same way that you Father in me, and I in you…

From moment to moment we can live in the world of the Spirit, so that the same perfect exchange of abiding in the sphere of God, so that then God can instrumentality work back through the believer, described by the relationship that Jesus has with the Father, can take place in the believer. This is because what is happening in the believer is simply the timeless exchange and fellowship between the Father and the Son. This is what it means to live in the Godhead.

22  And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

Greek: That the may be one (Present Subjunctive) in exactly the same way that we one are (Present)

The Great Purpose of the Church

John 17:23  I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Greek: I in them, and you in me, that they may become matured and completed into the same finished product manifesting our exact oneness; so that the world system might from moment to moment learn and know that you sent me into it with a mission, and that mission being that you loved them in exactly the same way that you loved me.

To the degree that every believer operates from moment to moment in the world of God of God so that God can simultaneously and from moment to moment work back through the believer will be the same degree that the church will become matured and completed in the oneness that the Father and the Son have.  This oneness as we have learned is the perfect exchange of Jesus being located in God and God instrumentality working His works back through Him.  As the church operates in this oneness with God, He then has absolute liberty to work His miracles in His church, revealing Jesus and His mission to love the world in exactly the same way that the Father loves Him, and thus drawing the world unto Himself through the church.

God’s Normal Mode of Operation is One of Miracles

The Same Greek Word for Dunamis Power and Miracles

(Strong’s Greek Concordance # 1411)

Matthew 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works <1411>?

 Matthew 13:58  And he did not many mighty works <1411> there because of their unbelief (Vacuum of faith)

 Mark 5:30  And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue (Miracles & Miraculous Powers had gone out of Him) <1411> had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

Greek: Power proceeding from him had then gone forth with the sense of direction, purpose, and destination. The activity of God’s power apart from our own actions

John 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

He that constantly and continually believes into me, out of the world and by the independent influence of (the world of the Spirit) shall flow rivers of living water.

The activity of God’s power apart from our own actions

Luke 6:19  And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.

For dunamis power was going out from Him with the sense of direction, purpose, and destination

The activity of God’s power apart from our own actions

1 Corinthians 12:10  To another the working of miracles <1411>; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:

All these things activates the one and the same Spirit distributing individually as He counsels.

2 Corinthians 13:4  For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power   (He liveth the life of God by showing forth Miracles & Miraculous Powers)<1411> of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power (but we shall live the life of God by showing forth Miracles & Miraculous Powers) <1411> of God toward you. (Into ministry to others)

 Galatians 3:5  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles <1411> among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

The report generated by the hearing and obeying of God’s rhema word.

 Ephesians 1:19  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power (Miracles & Miraculous Powers) <1411> to us-ward (funneled into us) who believe( are continuously and constantly believing the rhema word),according to the working of his mighty power,

Greek: And what is the surpassing greatness of His miracles funneled into me the one who continuously believes God’s Word. The surpassing greatness is limited to the activity of God.

This activity is produced as God’s inner strength is exchanged into His outward dominion and is activated by my faith.

Colossians 1:11  Strengthened with all might (Miracles & Miraculous Powers within Ourselves) <1411>, according to his glorious power (God’s Dominating Power to Subdue, and Create the Miracle Generated by His Becoming Visible in His Glory), unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

Be strengthened with miracle working strength to work all manner of miracles and miraculous powers.  This strength is limited to, however, to how visible God becomes in the mode of His glory. The more visible that God becomes, the more that God’s manifested dominion is exerted by His glory to produce the miracle…..

Colossians 1:29  Whereunto I also labour, striving( agonizing as an athlete) according to his working (activity), which worketh in me mightily (in the operation of Miracles & Miraculous Powers)<1411>.

God’s activity in us is always constant; and it is always His, and not ours. Our responsibility is to discern His continuous activity and militarily or athletically obey that activity from moment to moment that is active in the world of miracles. This is the key to the break through anointing and revival work.

Miracles in Old Testament

Deut 4:34  Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?

By testing and proving of innocent people; By signs and wonders; by war and battle; by a mighty and prevailing hand, by a continuously stretched out arm (Present participle); By great awe inspiring spectacles and deeds and awe inspiring exhibitions of power, (The normal mode of God’s actions)

Exodus 4:2  And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod.

 3  And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it.

Causative imperative- Moses did the casting down/obedience.

4 And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:

Moses seized with force the snake by the tail. (Totally opposite of the correct way to handle a snake) It turned into a rod in his hand.

6  And the LORD said furthermore unto him, Put now thine hand into thy bosom. And he put his hand into his bosom: and when he took it out, behold, his hand was leprous as snow.

Cause your hand to go into your hand to go into your hand.  When He caused his own hand to come out of His cloak (causative), his hand being in a state of “full blown” and continuing leprosy (intensive participle)

21  And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but I will harden his heart, that he shall not let the people go.

All the wonders that I gave to you (present perfect/ the miracles were already deposited by the Lord in Moses and could be manifested by Moses through his obedience and faith)

“See that thou do all”/ do with efficiency; act with effect; make and create; make something into something

Exodus 7:3  And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.

“Multiply”/ many in abundance; myriads: The normal operation of God

9  When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.

Receive, appropriate your staff and throw it down before evil people and evil circumstances. (Appropriate and incorporate into your heart the miracle by faith and then cast it into the natural world in the midst of evil circumstances.)

Exodus 7:20  And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded;( just as God commanded)  and he lifted up(causative action verb to cause the miracle by faith) the rod, and smote (causative action verb to cause the miracle by faith )  the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight (before the eyes of evil people demonstrating faith) of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned(converted/ causative command))  to blood.

 Exodus 8:5  And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs (and make to come up by faith)  to come up upon the land of Egypt.

 Exodus 8:16  And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite(causative action verb to cause the miracle by faith ) the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.

 Exodus 9:22  And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

Hebrew: Stretch out your hand to the heavens so he will fall the hail. Faith to cause

Exodus 10:12  And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left.

Hebrew: Stretch out your hand over……. For the locust, so he will swarm, and he will devour. Faith to cause

1 Kings 17:14  For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.

Hebrew; The jar of flour not she will be up, and jug of oil not she will run dry.

1 Kings 17:16  And the barrel of meal wasted not(consumed or spent up), neither did the cruse of oil fail( wanting, lacking or failing), according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.

 1 Kings 17:21  And he stretched(hithpolel- causative/ reflexive) (Elijah had the faith to cause the miracle, but had to step out in faith and do the work to produce it)himself upon the child three times, and cried unto the LORD, and said, O LORD my God, I pray thee, let this child‘s soul come into him again.

John 3:21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in (Locative- in the world of)  God.

The works must be energized, exercised, produced, and performed in the sphere or in the world of, and by God. The Absolute necessity of living deep in the world of the Holy Spirit.

John 10:38  But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in(Locative- in the world of)  him.

Luke 24:19  And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

 Acts 7:22  And Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in deeds.

Mighty- able, capable and capacity; He or she who would have the ability, capability and capacity to work miracles must live deep enough in the world of the Spirit.  This is because the charismatic gift of superhuman faith which brings to a three dimensional reality the rhema word (mustard seed faith), and then activates the dunamis power of God to create the miracle, is located, or lives in the world of the Holy Spirit.

This capacity and ability is spiritual in nature. It is produced in the spirit, by the charismatic gift of superhuman faith and the release of dunamis power

2 Corinthians 12:12  Truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds.

Incorrect: “THE SIGNS OF THE APOSTLE” or the signs rightfully belonging to one who is called to be an apostle.

Wrought’: Worked out, produced and executed to utter completion and accomplishment.  This shows spiritual labor, strong faith, endurance and perseverance to produce the miracle.  The miracle then executed in this way, becomes plainly evident.

Power – the dunamis power producing the miracle.  Sign- the produced miracle from the minister’s side, attesting the minister as a man or woman of God as one apostolically sent by God.  Wonder: The very same miracle from the recipient’s side, causing wonder and amazement and drawing the person to God.

Hebrews 11:7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

Being divinely instructed and admonished concerning the things that he could not see with human the human eyes

“The things yet not seen” what was what well known to Noah, or what had a three dimensional substance to him.   The physical world acquired no reality or became simply two-dimensional.

8  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

Not knowing ‘Having nothing in the physical realm which was set and standing before him so that he could grasp and follow.  He had no acquaintance with what God had called him to do.

27  By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Moses dominated and endured by seeing with discernment in the Spirit what was invisible or void of discernment in the natural or to the human eye. His substance was the rhema word of God.  The natural world was not a reality to him.

Mark 5:36  As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.  

Be a channel of believing and of nothing else

Luke 1:45  And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.

And happy is she that believed for there will be a maturing and consummation of the things prophetically told her from the Lord.

Luke 8:50  But when Jesus heard it, he answered him, saying, Fear not: Be a channel of believing and of nothing else believe only, and she shall be made whole.

John 6:29  Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent. The work of God is to believe and rely into Him whom God apostolically sent.

 John 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

He that constantly and continually believes into me, out of the world and by the independent influence of (the world of the Spirit) shall flow rivers of living water.

John 14:12  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

He that constantly and continually believes into me, the works that I do shall he do also, and greater works than these shall he do, because I go back into fellowship with the Father.

Acts 27:25  Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me. 

According to the way that it was prophetically told to me.

Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word (rhema of God).

So then faith is at all times by what is heard, and what is heard as pertaining to faith, is limited to the world of the rhema word, which is heard in our spirits.

Gal 5:6  For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.

The only thing that has the residing strength to produce the works of God is faith as it actively works through love or by the leading of the Holy Spirit.

Gal 3:5  He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit, and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

He therefore that amply and abundantly supplies to you the Spirit

(Greek translation for “supply”: the supplying of provisions to outfit a whole choir of singers) and is actively by His own power working miracles in you …. He does is by what is heard as pertaining to faith, but this hearing is limited to the world of the rhema word, which is heard in our spirits.

Mark 10:27  And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Greek paraphrase: God is capable and able, and mighty and strong to successfully accomplish His will in every affair in heaven and upon the earth.

Mark 9:23  Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible  to him that believeth.

If you have the ability to believe for something, without allowing for a chronic pattern of doubt to set in, that very thing that you believe for becomes transformed into something, mighty and strong and powerful and capable to obtain what you are seeking for.

Altering the Substance By Faith:

Heb 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Substance from two Greek words defined as a “standing under something” The substructure or hidden foundation, the substance and essence, of what is asked for is immediately changed from that of what was, into that which was asked for.

 Matthew 8:13  And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

 Matthew 15:28  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

The word “as” has a powerful connotation in New Testament scriptures.  It is defined by some of the following terms;   As, like, even as, just like, in the same manner, and a carbon copy of.

In Matthew eight and thirteen, Jesus in fact tells the centurion, that in the very specific thing that he has targeted his belief for, that very targeted thing he will receive.

Any specific point that we target our request for, believing, we will receive as a specific carbon copy or reduplication of what we requested. The specific thing that we ask for believing is the specific thing that we receive.

Matthew 9:29  Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.( LET IT BECOME OR BE CREATED FOR YOU)

In Matthew nine and twenty-nine the “according to your faith” is very similar to the word “as”. In other words we will receive from the Lord in proportion to our faith. Receiving is a matter of degrees. The more is the proportion of our faith, to believe without doubting, the greater will be the proportion of our receiving.  Our faith, or lack thereof, directly limits what we will receive or not receive from the Lord.

The Authority of Faith

A very important quality of God’s faith is that resident within it lies God’s authority to cause circumstances and situations to submit to the faith itself, change them and lines them up to God’s rhema word. Let us analyze three scriptures below.

Matthew 8:13  And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

The so be it done unto thee” is in the Greek imperative mood or the mood of command.  The faith of the centurion has God’s inherent authority to command circumstances to change and line up in accordance to what the centurion specifically targeted for in his request.

Matthew 9:29  Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

The “be it unto you” is in the Greek imperative mood.  In reality what Jesus tells them is that their faith commanded the circumstances that kept them blind to change and line up into God’s normalcy for vision.

Matthew 15:28  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

Your faith has commanded the future circumstances to line up and submit to and finally give to you what you desire.

Faith In The Perfect Tense

In the beginning of our study, we dealt with the Greek perfect tense.  We discussed that the Greek perfect tense defines an event completed in the past, but its results and impact are eternal, affecting and influencing us today, and in the future.

Matthew 9:22  But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Hath made thee whole is in the Greek perfect tense.  The faith of the women completely healed her with the results that her healing is secure from now, the future, and until the time of her natural death, unless she sins and opens up a door to the enemy

Mark 5:34  And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Here Jesus tells the woman “Thy faith has cured you now and forevermore.” The faith itself accomplished it with a completed and everlasting result.  Jesus then tells the woman; “Immediately go into a continual and enduring state of shalom peace brought about by being whole and sound from your plague.

Matthew 9:2  And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.

 Matthew 9:22  But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw  her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

 Mark 2:5  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.

The three instances “seeing” and “saw” is a Greek word that can be interchanged between physical seeing and intuitive knowledge.  God communicates Himself to us in our spirits by intuitive knowledge. This is also gut feeling knowledge. There are two types of knowledge.  There is the acquired knowledge that we progressively use to learn by studying and researching.  The other knowledge, which is intuitive, tells us immediately that a dress is blue.  God speaks to us in this way. We intuitively know, and step out and obey.

As I just stated, the physical seeing described comes from exactly the same Greek word for the intuitive seeing or the intuitive knowledge of the Lord Jesus.  Jesus must intuitively know a level of faith in us that will prompt Him to act to act on our behalf and grant to us what we want. Until He intuitively knows a faith level in us that does not doubt the mountains and circumstances in our lives will at best be only partially altered.

Matthew 17:20  And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove (FUTURE MIDDLE INDICATIVE “it will happen without fail by the inherent power resident in faith”)  and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Matthew 21:21  Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done (FUTURE MIDDLE INDICATIVE “it will happen without fail by the inherent power resident in faith”) 

 Mark  11:21  And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

 22  And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

If you can believe without creating a distinction or a difference that causes you to hesitate between the impossibilities of physical circumstance versus what miracles God says He can perform through them; the content of what you speak no matter as many are the things, whatsoever they are, or how great, and difficult, and much they are that make up that content, it will come into existence for you

Mustard Seed Faith

Luke 13:19  It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it.

 Matthew 13:31  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

Mustard seed, though tiny, is a pure kernel of mustard having three-dimensions, substance and essence. The mustard seed is God’s rhema word to us.

The substance and reality of this rhema word must become our only three dimensional substance and reality. Everything around us that does not line up with this rhema word must become our absolute unreality.

In proportion to how three-dimensional the rhema word becomes in our spirits, is the same proportion the miracle working power of God is released in us.

Mustard seed it also miraculous in nature in that out of a small seed comes a big tree.  Our faith must be also miraculous in its belief.

This rhema word must be cast and sowed into the field and garden of a continuously and constantly believing heart.  God will make the miracle take place.

Our only reality must be the rhema word of God; everything else must be our

The Causative Action of Faith

Exodus 8:5  And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt.

The O.T. is full of the Hebrew Hiphil  or causative verb form in the performance of miracles by Moses, Elijah, and Elisha.

The Hiphil verb tense is called the causative tense.  In other words it the individual causing an event to happen.  In the case of miracles it the exercising of our faith and belief from our spirits, not our minds, in the dimension of targeting and causing the rhema word to come to pass by the force of the faith itself.

Receiving

1 Corinthians 4:7  For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst  not receive ? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

To receive is to obtain and get something unto ourselves, possess it and make it our own, incorporate it and make it into an integral and real part of our being in its dimensions of an altered substance and essence, and receiving it in the timeless immediacy of the now

 Mark 11:24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive  them, and ye shall have them.

Through this I tell you that as many things, whatsoever they are, or as great or as much, they are, while in praying to God, believing that you have obtained them, possessed them, and incorporated them, at the timeless immediacy of your asking, and it shall become a reality in the future for you.
