11-FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN GOD
Heb 10:23-25 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

FOUR THINGS WHICH WILL INCREASE OUR CONFIDENCE IN GOD
(Heb 10:35) Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.
1. Prayer
1John 3:20-24 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight. 23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment. 24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
2. Fellowship with God
(1John 1:3) that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.
2a. God called Abraham His friend
(Jas 2:21-26 ASV) Was not Abraham our father justified by works, in that he offered up Isaac his son upon the altar? {22} Thou seest that faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect; {23} and the scripture was fulfilled which saith, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned unto him for righteousness; and he was called the friend of God. {24} Ye see that by works a man is justified, and not only by faith. {25} And in like manner was not also Rahab the harlot justified by works, in that she received the messengers, and sent them out another way? {26} For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, even so faith apart from works is dead.
2b. The Hebrew word friend in these scriptures means to love
(2Chr 20:7) "Are You not our God, who drove out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel, and gave it to the descendants of Abraham Your friend forever?
(Isa 41:8) "But you, Israel, are My servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, The descendants of Abraham My friend.
2c. Jesus said we could be friends if we do as He commanded (John 15:7-17).
2d. You can't be friends with God and the world at the same time
(Pro 18:24 ASV) He that maketh many friends doeth it to his own destruction; But there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
(James 4:4 ASV) Ye adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever therefore would be a friend of the world maketh himself an enemy of God.
3. Constant meditation on the Word––a visit with Jesus, God and His Word are one
(Josh 1:8-9) "This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. {9} "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
4. Praise continually – Through praise, God will maintain my rights and causes
(Psa 9:4) For You have maintained my right and my cause; You sat on the throne judging in righteousness.
(Psa 50:23) Whoever offers praise glorifies Me; And to him who orders his conduct aright I will show the salvation of God."

TWO KINDS OF UNBELIEF.
1. Lack of knowledge or wrong information.
2. Disobedience.
2a. Refusing to obey the Word.
2b. Refusing to act on the Word–(v6) (Heb 4:1-11-read)
2c. House built on this kind of unbelief
(Mat 7:24-26 ASV) Every one therefore that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them, shall be likened unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock: {25} and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and if fell not: for it was founded upon the rock. {26} And every one that heareth these words of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand.

DOMINION OF THE BELIEVER
(Gen 1:26-31) Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." {27} So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. {28} Then God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." {29} And God said, "See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. {30} "Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food"; and it was so. {31} Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
A. God creates, then delegates His dominion to man.
B. The dominion is in His Name

(Psa 8:3 9) When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, {4} What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? {5} For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor. {6} You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, {7} All sheep and oxen; Even the beasts of the field, {8} The birds of the air, And the fish of the sea That pass through the paths of the seas. {9} O LORD, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth!


ADAM'S REBELLION
(Gen 3:6 ASV) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat; and she gave also unto her husband with her, and he did eat.
(1Tim 2:14 ASV) and Adam was not beguiled, but the woman being beguiled hath fallen into transgression:

SATAN'S RULE
(Luke 4:6 ASV) And the devil said unto him, To thee will I give all this authority, and the glory of them: for it hath been delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
(2Cor 4:4 ASV) in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn upon them.

THE INCARNATION
A. Jesus is the last Adam
(1Cor 15:45-47) So also it is written, The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit. {46} Howbeit that is not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; then that which is spiritual. {47} The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is of heaven.

THE SACRIFICE
(Heb 2:14 ASV) Since then the children are sharers in flesh and blood, he also himself in like manner partook of the same; that through death he might bring to nought him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
(Php 2:8 ASV) and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, becoming obedient even unto death, yea, the death of the cross.
(John 10:18 ASV) No one taketh it away from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment received I from my Father.
(Isa 52:14 ASV) Like as many were astonished at thee (his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men),
(2Cor 5:21 ASV) Him who knew no sin he made to be sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him.
(Gal 3:13-14 ASV) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: {14} that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

THE NEW CREATION
(1Tim 3:16) And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.
Heb. 1:1-12 (Heb 2:9) But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
Eph. 1:16-23 (Eph 2:5) even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), Jesus gained authority over Satan's kingdom and is exercising that authority through the believer.

THE IMAGE OF GOD
(Gen 1:26) Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
(Rom 8:29) For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
(2Cor 4:4) whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
(Heb 1:3) who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD
(Rom 5:17) For if by the one man's offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)
(2Cor 5:21) For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS & IN HIS IMAGE, IN RIGHT-STANDING ––
(Mark 16:15-20 ASV) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. {16} He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned. {17} And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; {18} they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. {19} So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken unto them, was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. {20} And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word by the signs that followed. Amen.
(John 16:23) "And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.
(Eph 3:15) from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
A. We have His Name and His authority.
B. The right to use someone’s name is the whole right to his complete authority

(Eph 1:16-23) do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: {17} that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, {18} the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, {19} and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power {20} which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, {21} far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. {22} And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, {23} which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

BENEATH HIS FEET
(Eph 1:22) And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church,
(Heb 10:10 13) By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. {11} And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. {12} But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, {13} from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.
(1John 4:4) You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
