Charles Capps shares:
"Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of
God" (Romans 10:17).
The literal Greek says, "Faith cometh by report, and that report comes from God." Hearing what God said will build faith inside you, because He's able to perform His every declaration.
Now, Jesus tells you how to apply the GOD KIND
OF FAITH and get it to work. Perhaps you've tried it in all kinds of ways. You've tried it by bombarding the gates of heaven, by just
praying it over and over and over, and you found that didn't work. Well, let's see something that does work, and let's act
Here is what Jesus said: "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things
which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith" (Mark 11:23).
He didn't say just the things you say to the mountain.
He said "THOSE THINGS WHICH HE SAITH"; everything you say, You must watch what you say. You have to believe that those things that you say—everything you say—will come to pass.
That will activate the GOD KIND OF FAITH within you, and THOSE THINGS WHICH YOU SAY WILL COME TO PASS. He shall, HE SHALL HAVE, He didn't say he had it then, did He? HE SAID, "HE SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAITH." One of the translations says, "He shall have whatsoever he is saying." In other words, it shows he's continually saying that.
The Bible says, "Let us hold fast to the profession (confession) of our faith . . . " (Hebrews 10:23).
It didn't say, "Hold fast to your prayer." When you hold fast to the prayer, you're holding fast to your problem, because most of the time you've prayed the problem. Turn loose of the problem and get hold of your confession. Quit praying the problem. And start saying
the answer. "For verily I say unto you, whosoever shall say unto this mountain be thou removed ...".
When you prayed and said, "Lord, the mountain's getting bigger, it's not getting any better. I've prayed, and it's not working out," you were holding on to the problem.
You haven't got to the answer. You're not there yet, you are still too involved with the problem.
The answer is in the confession. The answer is in believing and confessing what the WORD SAYS. THE WORD SAYS THAT IT WILL BE REMOVED AND CAST INTO THE SEA
—>. We should continually affirm and confess this, "I thank God, though it looks like the mountain's getting bigger, in THE NAME OF JESUS, I see it removed by the eye of faith. BY THE EYE OF FAITH, I SEE IT
