Rhapsody of Realities 14th August 2020 – Don’t Hope, Act Your Faith by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TODAY’S TOPIC: DON’T HOPE, ACT YOUR FAITH
SCRIPTURE: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).
TODAY’S MESSAGE ON RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 14TH AUGUST 2020
Hope is a good virtue, but it doesn’t change your condition. There’s a difference between faith and hope. Hope is future; but faith is NOW. Understand it from this perspective: Jesus was prophesied as the hope of the nations; He was the hope of Israel; He was called the hope of salvation.
In other words, if man would ever be saved, the Son of God would have to come; there would have to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world, and Jesus was that sacrifice. When John the Baptist saw Him, he exclaimed,
“…Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” John 1:29
Now, Jesus came and fulfilled the plan of God. He was crucified in our place. He paid the full price for man’s sin and then God raised Him up to give us the inheritance. Colossians 1:12 says, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light.”
Now that God has given us the inheritance through Jesus Christ, there’s no reason to hope for it.
“Hope” (Jesus) came and completely fulfilled everything that God sent Him to give us and to do for us. Hallelujah! Everything you could ever desire of God has been consummated, accomplished, and granted you in Jesus Christ. You now must act your faith.
Don’t say, “I hope someday this sickness will leave my body”; stop hoping; act your faith. If the condition must change, it’s got to be by faith. Faith takes possession NOW! Hallelujah!
CONFESSION: My faith is active and prevails now! In the Name of Jesus, I walk in the light of my inheritance in Christ, in power and grace, living in divine health and supernatural prosperity. I’m victorious evermore, because I live in and by the Word. Amen.
Ephesians 6:16; 1 John 5:4; Hebrews 11:1
