TOPIC: INTRODUCTION TO THE MYSTERY OF FAITH
Scripture:1 Timothy 3: 9. Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
Beloved, we give thanks and praises to God Almighty who granted us divers encounters with His grace- the good Hand of the Lord, all through the month of May! I therefore welcome you to the month of June.
We understand from scriptures that we have received victory.
1 Corinthians 15: 57. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
But many children of God are actually not enjoying the victory delivered to us because of lack of knowledge of the keys to operate a victorious Christian life:
*Hosea 4: 6. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
One of the keys to maintaining a victorious Christian life is Faith! Yes:
1. We are saved by faith(Eph.2:8)
2.Obtain answers to prayer by faith(Mrk 11:23)
3. Live by faith(Hab.2:4,Rom.1:17)
4. We carry out exploits in this kingdom by faith (Heb.11:33-34, 1Sam.17:20-50)
5. Break through by faith(Heb.11:33-34)
6. We access realms of glory by faith (Jn.11:40)
7. It takes faith to understand God’s language (Rom.11:33)
However, the key of faith is delivered as a mystery.
What is a mystery?
According to Merriam Webster dictionary, a mystery is a religious truth that one can know only by revelation and cannot fully understand.
So faith is a mystery because it can only be known by revelation! Hence, we have to rely on the Holy Spirit to unravel the revelation of faith that makes for Christian victory.
We don’t understand this mystery by head knowledge, it is purely an operation of the the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has to paint a picture of what God is saying, strong enough for you to be convinced and then act.
The action you take based on the conviction of what God told you is faith. In order words, faith is an action that is predicated on the conviction received from the word of God! Join me once again on the platform of Moment of Daily Encounter, as we journey through the Bible all through the month of June to discover the mystery of faith as a key to our Christian heritage.
Happy New month!
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! Whom you serve on earth determines where you will spend eternity.
– Father thank you for bringing me to the month of June.
– Lord, open my eyes to catch the revelation behind the mystery of faith that makes for my victory.
– The Bible said in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent to Mary, in this sixth month of the year may you experience angelic encounters. May angels be sent to your home and family in the name of Jesus.
– High favour was announced to Mary, may you experience high favour all through this month of June in Jesus mighty name.
