How to Increase Your Faith God’s Way!

To have your faith increased you must have some. You cannot increase something you do not have.

What follows only applies to those who are living for God and others. Do you have any faith in God and His Holy Word? If not, you must get yourself right with God and others by turning from your sins and accepting Jesus as your personal Savior. Is Jesus your Savior and Lord?

Next, we need a good definition for faith. The great faith chapter in the Judeo-Christian Bible says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” — Hebrews 11:1. The examples that follow show you the power of real faith. No faith equals no power! Are you living in the supernatural?

Faith comes at a price. In 2 Peter 1:5-8 we read, “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that you shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” By following this path to develop a steadfast faith,  your existing faith is enriched. This is very important if you are going to see your faith increased. See 1 Timothy 1:5. Have you been diligently adding the above attributes to your faith?

The answer Jesus gave the apostles may surprise you. The question you may ask is, “How do the verses following the apostles request for increased faith found in Luke 17:6-10 have anything to do with increasing faith?”  Truth is, this answer has everything to do with increasing our faith. Are you ready to increase your faith?

The mystery hidden to most people is faith and faithfulness go together. Only as we trust and obey God can we have a real living faith that produces Hebrews 11 results. The key to understanding Jesus’ answer to the apostles is, as we fine-tune our faithfulness we increase our faith. Are you being faithful to God and others?

Here is how it works. There are two part to the formula that will increase our faith. They are working for Jesus and worshiping our true and living Creator-Redeemer God.

Luke 17:7 has to do with our work. Jesus’ Great Commission is our work assignment. It is recorded in Matthew 28:19, 20; Mark 16:15b; Luke 24:46-49. We do two things: as servants of God we plow His field and we feed His sheep. In other words, we prepare people’s hearts to receive God’s Word and we help people grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus. See Matthew 13:18-23 and 2 Peter 3:18. Are you working faithfully for the advancement of God’s kingdom and His righteous?

Luke 17:8-10 has to do with our worship. Worshiping God means “feeding” God first. The Bible verses that go with this are  Matthew 6:33 and John 4:24. “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth.” See also Psalm 37:1-8. Are you worshiping God or something else?

As we work in the world to prepare people’s hearts to get right with God and others and feed the Church of Jesus with blessings and encouragement, our faith increases. As we worship God as directed in Psalm 37:1-8 our faith increases. Thus we see Jesus’ answer to the apostles for their faith to increase is tied to our faithfulness in doing God’s work and worshiping Him. This is the only way you can increase your faith. Is your faithfulness increasing your faith?

Is Evolution a Scientific Fact or Religious Dogma?

To answer this question, we must be willing to face the facts and make a rational decision based on these facts. In his booklet, Why I Accept the Genesis Record, published in 1959,  John Raymond Hand, formally an evolutionist, gave 17 barricades the evolutionist must explain to honestly call evolution a scientific fact. The 17 barricades are as follows:

Barricade 1 is WHERE DID LIVE COME FROM. You cannot have life from inorganic substances. You cannot create life in a test tube. Just creating organic molecules in a science lab does not prove anything. The question remains: what or who created the genetic code? How was this possible without a outside creative force?

Barricade 2 is “THE GAP BETWEEN THE ANIMAL AND VEGETABLE KINGDOMS.” No one has been able to explain this.

Barricade 3 is LIFE BEGATS LIFE. Life comes from life. There are no exceptions.

Barricade 4 is “THE FORMATION OF SPECIES LINES.” Species do not cross breed.

Barricade 5 is WHERE ARE THE MISSING LINKS. There should be millions of them everywhere. They do not exist in real life. No one has honestly found one anywhere.

Barricade 6 is “WHAT STOPPED THE EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS?” Science has no explanation for this.

Barricade 7 is “EMBRYOS DO NOT PROPAGATE.” This is so well known there is no need for further discussion on it.

Barricade 8 is “THE STERILITY OF HYBRIDS.” Hybrids do not reproduce themselves. Good mule sense knows this is true.

Barricade 9 is “THE QUESTION OF REVERSION TO TYPE.” Charles Darwin acknowledges this in his book on origin of the species. It was a big problem for the evolutionist then and it still haunts them today.

Barricade 10 is EVOLUTION CANNOT PREDICT PAST OR FUTURE EVENTS. The missing links are still missing. We are not getting better. We really do need a Deity to save us from all the false prediction that are taught to our youth today.

Barricade 11 is “CONFLICT OF THE THEORIES OF EVOLUTION WITH AVAILABLE RECORDS.” Real life events and evolution is warring against each other.

Barricade 12 is “THE CO-EXISTENCE OF TYPES.” Men and monkeys have always live in the same habitat. Truth is, this is the only way life could remain on this planet.

Barricade 13 is “THE CONSTANT NUMBER OF SPECIES.” No new species have ever been found.

Barricade 14 is “THE QUESTION OF METHOD.” What started the process and how does it work? Evolution has no logical answer.

Barricade 15 is “THE PRESERVATION OF SPECIES LINES.” A cow is always a cow, a man is always a man, an apple tree is always an apple tree, to name a few.

Barricade 16 is “THE MATHEMATICAL DIFFICULTY.” Evolutions hide behind millions or billions of years. This is mathematical impossible. You would have species stacked up a mile high all over the earth. Do the math and you will see what a big problem this is for the evolutionist.

Barricade 17 is “THE DESPERATE ATTEMPT OF THE EVOLUTIONISTS TO CRUSH ALL OPPOSITION TO THEIR DOCTRINE.” A true scientist would not do this. Their finding are open to review and correction. They even try to disprove their own finding before they make it public.

These 17 barricades show evolution is not a scientific fact. Furthermore, evolution is in direct opposition to the real origins of all of creation as recorded in Genesis 1 and 2. Who else could tell how life came into being more than the One that created it.

Evolution is not true science. My article entitled The Mythology Of The Evolutionist found on pages 296-305 in my new book, The New Handbook for the Coming New Age, proves beyond a doubt that in reality evolution is nothing more than religious dogma that defies God and perverts the true origin of life. In reality, evolution dogma is pantheism mythology.

Can A Nation Survive Without God?

The threefold cord of faith, hope and love will bind us to God and others.  Love is the main thing.  1 Corinthians 13 gives us a summary of the kind of love that will heal a nation. Without this, everything else we do is worthless. The conclusion of the love chapter in the Word of God is 1 Corinthians 13:13 which says, “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” Read Psalm 2.

Cord 1: FAITH. Faith cures our restless spirit! Hebrews 4:9-11 states, “There remains therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into His rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from His. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”

Our faith must rest in someone who is bigger than ourselves. We cannot go very far by trusting in weak humanity. Our money is no help. The devil cannot be trusted to bring us to the promised land. Religion is no help either. Social action may change the outside but it leaves the inside unchanged. Government is of no help. Education has only made us more intelligent tyrants. Surrendering to our Creator-Redeemer God will establish a united society around a common faith. Without faith in Jesus Christ, hope and love are impossible. Read Romans and Hebrews in the Holy Bible to get a complete understanding of the truthfulness of this statement.

Cord 2: HOPE.  James 3:17-18 says, “But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” Wisdom from the hand of the True and Living God will give us great hope for a united society. IT TAKES GOD’S WISDOM TO ESTABLISH LASTING  HOPE!

The wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight.  James 3:14-15 sums it up like this: “But if you have bitter envying and strife in your heart, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descends not from above but is earthly, sensual, devilish.” Study the Book of James to get a better understanding of how wisdom, faith and love support one another.

Cord 3: LOVE. In Galatians 5:22-26 we are told, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.” Romans 5:5 ties it all together: “And hope makes not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is given unto us.” Jesus tells us if we love Him we will keep His commandments. Study The Gospel of John and 1 John to understand what it means to love God and others in such a way as to bring healing to the nations.

CONCLUSION: No nation can survive without God. Psalm 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.” Proverbs 14:34 says, “Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 29:1 puts it this way: “He that being often reproved hardens his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.” Psalm 9:17 warns us as follows: ” The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Read Psalm 2 again. Our only hope is found in the True and Living God through the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything else is sure to fail in these perilous times. Walls must be broken down. New goals must be set. New paths must be taken. Solid foundations must be laid. The Lord Jesus Christ must reign King of kings and Lord of lords.

Our International Lighthouse Ministries website has much helpful information.

Our new book The New Handbook for the Coming New Age is a great help.

When Does All Life Not Matter?

Human, animal and plant life does greatly matter! Each form of life has its own weight of importance. Clean air and organically grown crops are not our main solutions for ultimate life on this planet. The question is: How well are we cooperating with the Giver and Sustainer of life?

The source of all life is recorded in Genesis 1. In this chapter God shows us how He created an orderly cooperative system that supports each other. Read this Scripture to see how He accomplished this.

The best way to understand the various interactions of life forms is to use an equilateral life triangle. Human life is at its apex. Plants are at its right base point and animals are at its left base point. Humans, animals and  plants, serve one another. The cycle of service goes from human life to plant life to animal life and back to human life. The relationship of these three basic divisions of earthbound life is explained through the dominion principle shown in Genesis 1:29-31. They are as follows:

  • The plant domain provides food and medicine. Each plant has its own area of service to the other divisions. Plants take the energy from the sun and convert inorganic elements into organic substances. Each plant has its own living space. Environment determines its space.
  • The animal domain provides examples and support. Some animal examples are: proud as a peacock, sly as a fox and busy as a bee. Bees and moths pollinate plants, vultures clean up dead waste, probiotics create healthy intestinal flora, bacteria create vitamin B12 in the human gut. Each animal has its own assigned territory.
  • The human domain acts as the delegate ruler, caretaker and steward for all life in God’s earthly kingdom. It works like this. The human race is created in the image of God. God’s kingdom rules over all. God has established moral and spiritual boundaries for the human race. All are governed by His commandments. God makes the rules and is both the judge and jury as to how we enforce them.

YES, ALL LIFE DOES MATTER. No one in their right mind debates this fact. Human lives matter from conception to the grave because they are created in the image of God with certain God-given unalienable rights. Thus, all human life has intrinsic value regardless of the color of their skin, their sin or their station in life. Plant and animal life matter because they produce the framework for human physical, moral and spiritual existence.

God, as our Creator and Redeemer, most certainly has the ultimate plan that brings unity, peace and love to all of life. All work in perfect harmony so long as God is trusted and obeyed. We can only  understand this when our relationship with God is in harmony with His perfect will. The only reliable source for developing this relationship with God and the life around us is the Word of God, God’s Operation Manual. To the extent we love God, is it possible for us to love all other life forms as we should. When God is left out of the picture everything becomes a chaos rather than a cosmos. Perverted love for God equals perverted attitudes toward life.

Our book, The New Handbook for the Coming New Age: Finding Love, Peace and Hope Through the 7 Stations of Enlightenment, guides you into a right relationship with God. You can get your copy at www.lifestyle-metamorphosis-handbook.com.

What is Lifestyle Metamorphosis?

Our Creator-Redeemer God has provide a way through the Lord Jesus Christ for us to be transported from a life of sin to a life of righteousness and true holiness. See Romans 12.

To start the lifestyle metamorphosis process an adult butterfly lays an egg. This egg is an embryo with all the genetics needed to transform a baby caterpillar into an adult butterfly. To start a spiritual lifestyle metamorphosis sinners must be born again by the Holy Spirit. They become new creatures in Christ Jesus as explained in 2 Corinthians 5:17.

The baby caterpillar begins the lifestyle metamorphosis process. Here individual baby Christians have a hunger for the Word of God. They are selfish by nature. Most of today’s Christians are still in Romans 7:7-25.

Romans 7:7-25 Christians must get into Romans 8:1-13. They must go into their cocoon stage to complete their lifestyle metamorphosis. In this stage they are not conformed to this world. They are shut up in God’s transforming love. They have presented their body a living sacrifice to God. The law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus is transforming them into beautiful saints of God. Their minds are being renewed. They will never be the same again.

When they break out of their cocoon they soar above the world, the flesh and the devil. Their thirst for the nectar of God’s perfect will replaces their selfish nature. They are now beautiful Christians ready to go into all the world to lay eggs (their testimony of God’s love and grace) that will start the lifestyle metamorphosis process in others. By their new nature their lifestyle is transformed every day to bring forth the fruit of the Spirit (the rivers of living water). They naturally live a life of righteousness and true holiness as they love God and others from a pure heart, a good conscience and a strong abiding faith.

Are You A Christian Politician?

A Christian is an honest politician! Such a person is motivated by the love of God.  Acts 5:29b makes it clear: “We ought to obey God rather than men.” Romans 13:10 says “Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” Politics is the hands of the Christian that faithfully works out the two great commandments. In Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus tells us loving God and our neighbor fulfills the whole law and the prophets. Furthermore, in John 14:21 Jesus tells us if we love Him we will keep His commandments. Christians have sacrificial love for Jesus Christ their Lord and their neighbor.

In 1 Corinthians 14:33a we read, “God is not the author of confusion but of peace.”  Tyrants promote confusion and disrupt peace. They afflict good law-abiding citizens and support lawless wicked people. Such people do not qualify for the directives in Romans 13. Do you see why? The United States of America was established upon Judeo-Christian values. This is clearly expressed in our national documents. According to Romans 13 governmental leaders are ministers of God to punish the wicked and uphold those who are good. They enforce law and order  with “liberty and justice for all” as public servants.

We have suffer tyranny long enough. When a politician lies, deceives, slanders and uses brute force to get votes, he cannot be trusted with governmental authority. If they use this kind of behavior to get votes, they will do the same thing when “we the people” go against their tyrannical agendas.  If they cannot manage their political campaign with integrity, how insane would it be for us to allow them to manage our Constitutional Republic. Pay attention! A good Christian leader takes responsibility for his own actions and attitudes. He makes sure everything works according to the master plan. This is very important! Every government official swears to uphold our Constitution. Christians will keep their promises

You better make sure your politics is Christian! One size fits all! There are no exemptions! Psalm 9:17 is very clear! It says, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Revelation 21:8 says, “But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murders, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 22:15 confirms this statement. It reads, “But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.”

If you are not a Christian politician you need the information found in our book, “The  New Handbook for the Coming New Age: Finding Love, Peace and Hope Through 7 Stations of Enlightenment” at: http://The-Lifestyle-Metamorphosis-Handbook.com.

Are You Getting Enough Out Of Your Brain Power?

It is urgent for a great nation to have its citizens at their very best physically, mentally, morally and spiritually.

Most of us only use about one millionth of our brain power. We short-circuit our brain power in many ways. At the root of all brain fog is not knowing how or not willing to think logically. Stereotyping is a very powerful brain destroyer. It keeps us from thinking outside of the box. We get locked into a cage of our own choosing.  What a waste! Another great circuit breaker for brain power is resentments. We become insane with rage. Our minds are so full of wanting to “get even” we cannot think clearly.   Physical health issues are other great brain power circuit breakers. Laziness is another big drain on brain power.

On page 242 of “The New Handbook for the Coming New Age: Finding Love, Peace and Hope Through the 7 Stations of Enlightenment” there is a “Logic Process Diagrammed” graphics. This diagram shows how we go from science to technology. The chapter that follows this diagram explains this in great detail. You will see how to keep in touch with reality and use your brain power more efficiently. This is the first step toward getting enough out of your brain power.

Needless to say, regardless of how much knowledge you have concerning logical processes, if you are plagued with stereotyping, resentments, physical health issues or laziness, you are not getting enough out of your brain power. Thank God, there is an answer to this dilemma!  By loving God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength you will love your neighbor as yourself. This will free you from stereotyping, resentments and laziness. When this is done your physical health will improve. With proper health habits your mind power can run at full capacity regardless of your chronological age.

To get started toward maximizing your brain power, go to http://The-Lifestyle-Metamorphosis-Handbook.com or the book trailer on Youtube at: https://youtu.be/bTLp4g3Po_M.
