- Verse: "I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?" (1 Corinthians 6:5)
"And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is pure" (1 John 3:3). The cry of the Psalmist is: "Cleanse Thou me from secret faults" (Psalm 19:12)! Now, our faults are not secret to us, they are the hypocrisy that we are living, and we are asking God to cleanse us from these things. You could almost understand it this way: "Lord, bring us to the light so I can be delivered, so somebody can help me get out of this, someone who will lift my hands up in this warfare.

- Verse: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock” (Matthew 7:24)
Faith is the ability to move beyond our understanding, our doctrine, into trust: The wise men are those that hear My Word and-? (Matthew 7:24). Faith is doing it, not looking for more biblical support. Beloved, at the mouth of two or three witnesses, let every word be established; amen? You don't have to have two or three books. "Seven hundred verses, and if I get seven hundred verses, then I'll be able to really-faith will rise up and I'll be able to trust God." Hear His Word and do it!
You see, the reason we study more is because we're afraid to believe God.

- Verse: “And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” (Matthew 8:2-3)
How much do you trust God? How much do you trust Him when you can't see it and it is absolutely impossible in your eyes what you're perceiving right now in the circumstances for it to manifest, but you stand up and say, "If God's for me, praise God, nobody can be against me"? All things are possible to he that believeth! This is the confidence that I have in Him that if ask anything according to His will, He hears me, praise God! And if I know that my God hears me, I have absolute confidence that I have the petitions that I've desired of Him.

- Verse: “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:” (Matthew 7:24)
I want to talk about the simplicity of child-like faith, of coming and trusting God absolutely. Proverbs says trust in the Lord-Proverbs 3-"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart…." Do you believe He'll catch you when you fall? Doesn't the Scripture tell us that His eyes are upon the sparrow? He knows how many sparrows drop in a day. He knows the hairs upon our head. How much more does He care for us; amen? Now, we all respond immediately, "Yeah, I believe He'll catch me.

- Verse: “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” (Psalm 118:8)
What we're looking at is God working in us; the ability to trust in Him to have full assurance and reliance that His promises are yea and amen. They're sure to a thousand generations. The Scripture tells us very clearly in Psalms 37, "Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass" (Psalms 37:5). As you're turning over there, the third verse just prior to that says, "Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed." Now, that's a good Scripture for all of us-we all like to eat;

- Verse: “He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” (Romans 4:20-21)
This is a troubled world. But in His presence is fullness of joy, praise God! And, favorably expecting that to manifest in our lives, we come into His presence, and we find that rest. There is a rest, the Scripture says, for the people of God. But we have to labor to enter into that rest.
Faith isn't something that's passive. Faith is an active force. It can express itself in passivity, but it's an active force, because faith is believing in the promises of God-that favorable expectation, a faith that sets out against.

- Verse: “And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.” (Mark 4:15)
Anytime revelation comes to us-you see we weren't teaching during the altar call this morning, but I want to tell you something. Many of you received the Word during the altar call. Many of you had the Holy Ghost from within bring you rhema. Rhema came to you: the Scriptures began to rise up in your heart. The Holy Ghost said to you, "These signs shall follow them that believe; they will lay hands on the sick and you will recover. The prayer of faith shall save the sick." All of the Scriptures that have to do with healing, God was speaking to many of you. That's rhema.

- Verse: “My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.” (James 1:2-3)
Turn to the Book of James. These are passages we are all very familiar with. We want to refresh ourselves. "James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad" (James 1:1). Now, they were scattered because of persecution, adversity. The church is never at its best until it's being persecuted. The church is always at its best under trial and pressure. And we all hate that, don't we? None of us embraces that. None of us wants that. "O Lord, please send us to the catacombs.

- Verse: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
Remember the woman with the issue of blood? And what she said within herself, "If I can touch the hem of His garment…." We saw where she got that faith, out of Malachi, the Book of Malachi. "The Sun of righteousness [shall] arise with healing in his wings" (Malachi 4:2). That Hebrew word "wings" means "the border or hem of a garment." That is a very obscure passage. There are times when God will speak to us through obscure passages about His goodness, His righteousness, His desire to heal you.

- Verse: “And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him. And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.” (Luke 5:18-19)
We want to continue with our study on faith that prevails. I want to point out a couple of things in Luke, Chapter 5. In Luke, Chapter 5, we get a little insight into an encounter that He had with people that had genuine faith, a people who diligently sought Him in the midst of their need. Verse 17 says, "And it came to pass on a certain day, as he was teaching, that there were Pharisees and doctors of the law sitting by, which were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judaea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was present to [iaomai] them.
