The Changing Times

Matthew 7:21–23 KJV 1900
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Matthew 7:21 KJV 1900
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

The Progression of Faith

Faith begins with the word of God
++The Word is the Foundation
++The Word is the Initiation point
++The Word is the beginning
Romans 10:17 KJV 1900
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Faith must begin with the word.
Romans 10:14 KJV 1900
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

The proclamation of the word is the vehicle for the formation of faith.

But this is only the beginning stage of Faith.
People gather regularly to hear the word of God and can still leave with little or no faith.
The preacher preached
The word was proclaimed
Faith was available
How so we leave out the same?
++Unaffected
++Unchanged
The Prophetic Voice
++Brings a message
++Brings the word
++Produces an opportunity for faith

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Hebrews 11:3 KJV 1900

The Word of God
++Predates the World
++Framed the world
++Provides fresh perspective
++is the Beginning of all

6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
