Putting Faith to Work


(Singing) I know my God
has made the way for me. I know my God has
made the way for me. ANNOUNCER: Build your faith in
the Word today on the Believer’s Voice of Victory. Learn from
Kenneth Copeland how to put your faith to work by believing,
speaking, and acting on God’s Word. Now for today’s
lesson, let’s join Kenneth. KENNETH: Let’s turn to the
11th chapter of Mark’s gospel. And faith is the key
to unlocking the storehouses of the Spirit. Verse 22,
“Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God”.
Well, what about this outpouring?” Have faith in God.
“Well, what about my children?” Have faith in God. “What about
the growth of the church?” Have faith in God. “What about my
business?” Have faith in God. This is where it starts. Have
faith in God. Amen. And as most of you know, your
cross-reference says there, “Have the faith of God.” And, of
course, Jesus is referring to the faith of God Himself, which
is the very faith that Jesus used that day and demonstrated.
And every born-again child of God has exactly the same measure
of that faith. You got it when you got born again. (Audience
“Amens”) So he’s referring to that measure of faith. Now,
before I go any further, Romans, Chapter 12, “He’s dealt unto
every man the measure of faith,” talking about that–that faith
measure that you received when you got born again. But now,
remember, in the 11th chapter of the book of Hebrews–in fact,
let’s turn over there. I want to make this note before we go any
further with this so it’ll be on your mind and in your thinking.
Hebrews, Chapter 11, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped
for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders
obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the
worlds were framed by the word of God–” How? Through faith.
“–so that things–” every thing, every thing “–which are
seen were not made of things which do appear.” God did not
create the heaven and the earth out of nothing. No, he did not.
He created it out of something you can’t physically see. By
faith, He created the worlds. Now, Romans, Chapter 12,
then–because you need to know the faith that Jesus is talking
about here–Verse 3, “I say, through the grace given unto me,
to every man,” or every person, every human being, “that is
among you, not to think of himself more highly than he
ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath
dealt to every man among you,” or every born-again believer,
“The measure of faith.” Those of you that
follow Brother Hagin’s ministry, you know that he began
to pray in just about every meeting that he–that he
conducted. He–somewhere in that meeting, he would start praying
for manifestation of gifts of healings, manifestation of
working of miracles and special faith, pray it for all the
churches, pray it for–and he just kept praying it and praying
it, praying it. Because the Spirit of God had laid that on
his heart back in the early ’80s. I’m telling you, this is
big stuff. It’s huge, and we’re in it. And that means that you
and I are responsible for our part. This needs to be in our
prayer life every day. This needs to be on our minds all the
time. That’s the reason it’s so important to seek first the
kingdom of God and let Him start fixing all that other stuff out
there that’s been getting in the way. (Applause) Thank You, Lord.
Hallelujah. Talk about it. Talk about it a lot. Talk about it
when you come to church, talk about it when you get together.
When you got born again, every one of us, when we got born
again, we–we, each and every one, got exactly the same
measure of faith. AUDIENCE: That’s right. KENNETH: Now, what
happened after that is up to you, what you do with it. You
remember what the apostle Paul wrote to the church at
Thessalonica? “Your faith groweth exceedingly.” They had
growing faith. Well, they were using it. But the important
thing to notice here is that every one of us, everyone, every
one of us received a measure of the same faith that created the
heavens. (Audience Agrees) Whoa. I’m telling you, that’s shouting
ground. (Audience “Amens”) That’s good stuff. That’s rich.
That’ll get you through hard times. The devil comes in there,
you know, shooting his mouth off. Well, who wants to believe
a liar anyway? (Laughter) “Well, the devil told me–” Well, what
difference does that make? (Laughter) You know? He’s a liar
and the father of it. AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: Who wants to
believe a lie? Amen. Think about it. When the pressure’s on,
think about it. Now, wait a minute here. I got something on
the inside of me. Ooh. I got something right in here that the
devil ain’t got, and there’s no way he’ll ever get it. AUDIENCE:
That’s right. Amen. KENNETH: I’ve got something in here that
everybody doesn’t have. AUDIENCE: Yes, sir. KENNETH: If
you don’t know Jesus, you ain’t got what I got. (Audience
Agrees) AUDIENCE: Whoo! KENNETH: But I want you to have what I
have. AUDIENCE: Yeah, yeah. (Applause) KENNETH: I have a
measure of the same faith that created all you can see.
AUDIENCE: Glory to God. Glory! Come on. KENNETH: I got a
measure of the same faith. AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: And God
said, “Light be! Light was.” And in 24 hours, shew! 24 hours, 16
billion miles of universe, shew! I got a piece of that on the
inside of me. Ha-ha-ha-ha. Amen! (Audience “Amens”) AUDIENCE:
Glory! KENNETH: This is pretty special stuff. (Audience Agrees)
Amen. “Well, Brother Copeland, I mean, you’re a preacher.” Yeah,
that’s right. Have been a long time, continue to be one. That’s
my goal. But that doesn’t have anything to do with it. It
didn’t work for the apostle Paul because he was an apostle. It
didn’t work for Peter because he was an apostle. No. Peter said,
“We have received like faith with you.” It worked for them
because they believed. It worked because they used the basic
fundamentals of faith. That day that Peter walked up there and
said, “Such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus, rise
and walk”– AUDIENCE: Yes! KENNETH: –he used his faith in
the name of Jesus. He said, “That’s what made this man
strong.” Amen? (Audience “Amens”) Amen. He said it was.
He said his faith in this man–in the name of Jesus made
this man strong. Well, how much faith in the name does it take?
Well, now, wait a minute, that name, whoa. (Whistles)
Ha-ha-ha-ha. You remember the 4th chapter of the book of Acts?
“Stretch forth your hand; that signs and wonders may be done by
the name of your holy child Jesus.” Didn’t say, “in the
name.” It said, “by the name.” AUDIENCE: Come on. KENNETH: That
name itself, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho. How much faith does it take? Well,
how big is a mustard seed? AUDIENCE: Yes. (Laughter)
KENNETH: Huh? AUDIENCE: Yes, sir. KENNETH: This stuff is
dynamite, man. (Laughter) Hallelujah. (Audience
“Hallelujahs”) You have a measure. AUDIENCE: Come on.
KENNETH: Say it, “I have a measure–” (Audience Repeats)
“–of the same kind of faith that created the heavens and the
earth right here on the inside of my spirit.” Right here. It’s
in me right–it’s right here. It’s right here. It’s right here
right now. (Audience Agrees) Ha-ha-ha. Thank You, Lord!
(Cheers & Applause) Oh, thank You, Jesus. Yes, amen. So, “Have
faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever–” that
means me “–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 says shall come
to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I
say unto you, What things soever you desire, when you pray,
believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. And
when you stand praying, forgive, if you have ought against any:
that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your
trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your
Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.” Now,
we’re going to be talking about the basic fundamentals of faith,
the very basic fundamentals. My grandson Jeremy said this a
number of years ago, and it–it so impacted my thinking. What
are you watching when you watch the World Series? What are you
watching when you watch the Super Bowl? What are you
watching when you watch the U.S. Open? You are watching masters
of the fundamentals. The fundamentals. They’re the best
at the fundamentals. The game is the game, whether it’s a Little
League game or whether it’s a World Series. The game is the
same. Amen. Now, if you’re watching a championship Little
League game, I mean, hey, this thing is big. It is a
championship game, man. (Audience Agrees) You are
watching the best at that age at the fundamentals. AUDIENCE:
Amen. KENNETH: “Oh, Brother Copeland, a lot of it’s luck.”
Ain’t no such thing as luck. Forget that. (Audience Agrees)
Ha-ha. Hallelujah. It’s the fundamentals. Now, let’s go to
Mark–I mean–we’re in the book of Mark. Let’s go to the 5th
chapter of Mark, Mark 5. The basic fundamentals of faith are
very, very simple. Verse 25, “A certain woman, which had an
issue of blood twelve years, and had suffered many things of many
physicians, and spent all that she had, and was nothing
bettered, but rather grew worse, when she had heard of Jesus,
came in the press behind–” Now notice. “When she had heard, she
came in the press behind, and touched his garment. For she
said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. And
straightway,” or immediately, “the fountain of her blood was
dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that
plague. Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that
virtue–” or I read a translation today that just
said, “healing power,” “–had gone out of him, turned him
about in the press and said, Who touched my clothes? His
disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging
thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round
about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman
fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and
fell down before him and told him all the truth. He said unto
her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace,
and be whole of that plague.” The number one step, or the
number one basic fundamental, of faith is, believe the Word, then
say the Word. That’s the first thing. We read that in Mark
11:23. Let’s look in II Corinthians 4:13. II
Corinthians, Chapter 4, 13th verse, “We having the same
spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and
therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore we
speak.” That’s just basic fundamental. We believe. Believe
what? Believe the Word. And therefore we speak. Speak what?
Speak the Word, or speak what you believe. In fact, what you
say is your faith speaking. Amen. “Well, Brother Copeland, I
don’t know whether I believe that or not.” Well, your
faith just spoke it. (Laughter) It really is.
It’s that basic, it’s that fundamental,
because the human being was created to speak.
Words were not given to mankind primarily for communication.
Words were given to mankind primarily for release of power–
AUDIENCE: Amen. KENNETH: –for creative use, because we were
created in the likeness of God. Now, God communicated with Adam,
but God also used His Word to create the whole universe. Amen.
So the words were primarily as a release of power and creative
force. So, number one, believe it, then say it. Romans 10:10,
and we’ve got three witnesses here, Mark 11:23, II Corinthians
4:13, and now Romans, Chapter 10, the 10th verse, “For with
the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the
mouth confession is made unto salvation.” That is the basic
fundamental of faith. AUDIENCE: Yes, sir. KENNETH: Now, to
believe it then say it is so–it is so basic. It’s–it is
the–the first step into faith. Now, you can get–you can get
so–so detailed and go–and it’s not a wrong thing to do, to go
off and study in different directions. But if you’re not
cautious about what you’re doing, you get away from the
basics. This is basic. And like I said earlier, it is so simple,
you’ve got to have help to misunderstand that. (Audience
Agrees) Believe the Word, then say it. Amen. All right, the
second basic fundamental of faith is, act on your faith, act
on the Word. Number one, believe the Word, say
the Word. Number two, act on the Word. Become
a doer of the Word, not just a hearer only.
Acting on your faith. ANNOUNCER: We hope you enjoyed
today’s teaching from Kenneth Copeland Ministries. And
remember Jesus is Lord.
