1 Peter 1:7 tells us, "These have come so that your faith---of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire---may be proven genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed." Your faith will go through fire. God will take us through seasons where He toughens and refines our faith. AS you prevail through each situation, your faith will become deeper and stronger. If you need a healing touch, stand on faith. If you need financial breakthrough, stand on faith. If you need a touch in your marriage, stand in faith. If you need deliverance from an addiction, stand in faith. If you need to start moving in the things of the Holy Spirit, stand in faith. When trouble comes, stand in faith. How do you do this? Remind God about His promises--- "Lord You said--- and I'm standing on this." Look at the greatest problem you have, and understand God can make good come out on the other side. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony." (Hebrews 11:1,2). Faith is stepping out into the waves. It's reaching out to the lame man at the Gate Beautiful. It's paying your tithes and seeing God bless you. God wants to bring our beliefs in line with His Word. See the victory come, again and again and again!!!
In John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
