*New Creation Realities. New Man-New Faith!*
? In the New Creation, God has freely given all things pertaining to life and Godliness. This includes Faith! The revolutionary definition: “Faith is the Operation of the Holy Spirit.” by Dr. Mary Banks changed my life years ago. I knew that it was the truth and was relieved to know that I did not have to strive to have Faith. Faith came to me when I received salvation and works when I hear and obey God’s word.
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Romans 10:17 KJV
?Prior to this I was deeply impacted by a series on Faith by Dr. Morris Cerullo who kept saying: “we must have the Faith of God; and that the Faith that pleases God is not of ourselves, but is the gift of God.”
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV
The more I meditated on that scripture the more I began to embrace Faith as God operating, the gift of His Holy Spirit; without which I cannot please God.
?Dr. Mary Bank’s teachings and book “Faith is the Operation of the HolyGhost” answered many questions I had. I came to see that New Testament Faith is more than just mental assent but includes childlike trust, agreement and obedience and that God’s Faith is not bound by our unbelief as He also knows how to reach us even when we are ignorant, out of the way and do not believe Him. Why?
He desires to take us to where we choose to walk in purity, and obedience so that He can do in and through us more exceedingly, abundantly and above what we can ask, think or imagine by His power that works mightily in us.
?Undoubtedly, The New Man in Christ has a New Faith, the Faith of *Jesus Christ; the author and finisher of our Faith* This fulfils Habakuk’s prophecy that “the Just shall live by Faith”. Jesus came that we can live by His Life or Faith, which never fails.Yes, we can walk in childlike obedience; which is the very best way to show that we believe God!
*Scripture in Focus*
?Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Hebrews 10:38 KJV
?But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.Galatians 3:23. KJV
? Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.Hebrews 11:1 KJV
?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 KJV
Faith for the children of God is the Holy Spirit. Without Him you cannot please God. As you trust and allow Him to move in your life you we will behold the wonderful works of God. Will you?
