If He said it, it is already done, whether we see it yet or not!
Kingdom citizens believe everything that is promised in God’s Constitution—meaning the Bible—will come true. So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them." Mark 11:22-24
His Word is truth and He cannot lie. There is no doubt in Kingdom citizens. Do you recall what ambassador James stated concerning doubt? But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. James 1:6-8
I mention the Greek word pistis several times. It is very important that we understand its meaning and that Kingdom faith is a lifestyle, not a casual common belief system. There is nothing “common” in the Kingdom of God. Remember, citizens with the right currency may obtain everything the Kingdom of God has to offer as long as it is in line with His Will for your life. Kingdom currency is faith! Ambassador John made it quite clear: This is the [remarkable degree of] confidence which we [as believers are entitled to] have before Him: that if we ask anything according to His will, [that is, consistent with His plan and purpose] He hears us. And if we know [for a fact, as indeed we do] that He hears and listens to us in whatever we ask, we [also] know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted to us] the requests which we have asked from Him. 1 John 5:14-15 AMP
A good example of pistis faith was when the two blind men came to the Lord Jesus. When Jesus departed from there, two blind men followed Him, crying out and saying, “Son of David, have mercy on us!”And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then He touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith let it be to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, saying, “See that no one knows it.” Matthew 9:27-30
They were confident and did not doubt that the Lord Jesus could heal their condition. Believe me when I say that there is nothing mysterious about Kingdom faith. It is the faith that moves the Lord God. It is straight forward, practical and has nothing whatsoever to do with religion or religious rituals or traditions. Keep in mind, Jesus didn’t ask them any religious questions nor did He ask them how many payers they had prayed or how much money they had given to the temple treasury.
He asked them one simple question. “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” That was all. Can you pay the price? Do you have the right currency? Remember that faith is the currency of the Kingdom. These two blind men were seeking a Kingdom benefit—the wholeness of their body. But they needed the correct currency. Do you have the right currency? Do you believe that He is able to do what you are asking?
Kingdom faith is really more than citizens of the Kingdom believing their government’s legal promises in God’s Constitution and claiming their rights under the law. Remember, the two blind men addressed Jesus. First of all, they called Him the “Son of David” acknowledging that Jesus was a King because He was a descendant from David’s kingly line. The blind men also called Him Lord, which means owner. By using that title, they were acknowledging that Jesus was indeed King and rightly owner of all things, including themselves.
There is much more I would love to say, but will leave you with this thought: And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: King of kings, and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:16
Yes, He is truly King of all kings and Lord of all lords!
Remember, your faith in the Lord God’s promises is your greatest asset in His Kingdom!
