Let's Talk About Faith

Hebrews 11: 1-2
1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2This is what the ancients were commended for. 3By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. (NIV)

The Reverend J.J. Bourne is a great man of faith. He said it like this: Faith is when you reach into nothing and pull out something. That means when you want or need something that you cannot see, feel, or touch; your faith or belief in God reaches into the invisible world and makes your request solid, and real.

I did not make that up. The New International Version of the Bible says exactly that. God commanded the universe to be formed by elements that were not visible in our reality. Yet we see the earth, the sky, the galaxies...all created from nothing. I can prove this by science.

Science claims that a Big Bang brought the world into existence. How many of you have ever looked into this claim? It is very interesting and absolutely confirms the Genesis story of creation!

Here is the link that will take you to the discussion about this image. http://members.tripod.com/~ssscott/BigBang.html

Genesis 1

The Beginning

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. 3 And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light.
For those of you who take the time to look into the Big Bang you will discover that there was nothing. Even the scientists believe that matter was compressed into nothingness. The suddenly for no reason something caused the elements to begin forming. A number of complex changes happened in less than one second. Then for the next three minutes something else happened. After three hundred thousand years of these complex changes, out of NOTHNG came LIGHT just like God commanded.

God brought the worlds into existence from his word. God is a God of order. You can see that in all His creations. Remember that faith is something you cannot see becoming a reality because of your belief without doubting that God can and will do it! Many times we give ourselves an escape clause by saying that we believe God CAN do anything. However, when pinned down we are not so quick to say that God WILL do something we have requested. Faith means you believe not only that God can, but that he will do what you request. ARE YOU A BELIEVER? Now is the time to make your petitions known to God and Believe with all your heart that God WILL answer in a timely fashion. Do not give up after the first day. Keep on believing!

Have Faith!
