Hebrews 3:1 (KJV) 1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
It’s one thing to have the God-kind of faith but how do we use it effectively to get our desired results? As I mentioned in an earlier post, faith is voice activated which means we have to speak our faith, not just think about it.
In our opening scripture, the word profession means confession – to profess something is to confess or speak it. Jesus is the High Priest over our confession, over what we say. That means He’s there ready to cause to come to pass what we say in faith, in accordance with His Word.
As Keith Moore says, “If you say what Jesus says, you’ll get what you say!” Can’t be any clearer than that. Jesus watches over your words to see if they line up with His Word. If they do, then He can legally cause them to come to pass. Everything is about being legal according to the Covenant God made with mankind. [More about the covenant at a later time.]
So, the first thing we see in how to use our faith, is that we must speak it. That means we have to say the same thing that God has said if we want God-results. We can’t just make up our own prayers and shoot them up hoping God will have pity on us and answer them.
Of course you know that in order to say the same thing that God has said, you have to know what He has said in His Word. You just can’t get away from His Word if you want to walk in the victorious life He has for you!
