    The Response Of Faith – Susan Allen
    The Response of Faith 8/15/21 susan allen Mark 11:12 KJV And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. Answered #611 responded, He began to speak because of something that preceded Said #2036=to speak, to say TO whom was He speaking?  IT He spoke what He desired and His words had a physical effect  (Prov 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue)   RESPONSE is necessary for things to be established or things to be changed. There is power in your spoken word to establish faith Or to establish circumstances Luke 17:6-7 nkjv So the Lord said, "If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.  OUR WORDS ARE NOT TO LINE UP with the CIRCUMSTANCES or to agree with CURRENT conditions UNLESS conditions line up with God’s Word. 14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it. --Verse 20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, (not speaking about it but speaking to it) Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, (withdraw from, oppose, hesitate, waver) Rom 4:17 kjv17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb:20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. Don’t separated your saying from your praying If there is doubt in my words there is doubt in my heart (Matt 12:34) :23  shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. DO I HAVE FAITH in MY WORDS? DO I BELIEVE what I SAY?   shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.         24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, -WHEN do you believe that you receive them? when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.   YOUR FAITH will RESPOND through your MOUTH WHAT NEEDS TO CHANGE? What is the response of FEAR?  WHAT is the response of FAITH?

    Change Is Here – Susan Allen
    CHANGE is HERE 8/1/21 susan allen 2 Cor 10:3 NIV  For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. (kjv carnal-pertaining to the flesh) On the contrary, they have divine power (kjv mighty-capable and powerful) to demolish (kjv pulling down- making extinct) strongholds.(thought patterns that have been fortified, reinforced by meditation, words or experiences-that war against God’s Word)  5 We demolish (cast down BY FORCE) arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God (what God knows is true) and we take captive (bring under control) every thought to make it obedient to Christ. EVERYTHING in this passage is FORCEFUL Col 3:5 niv Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.  7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. 8 But now you must rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.                        ^to be changed, renovated   KNOWLEDGE of God’s Word will create THAT IMAGE. THIS WORD is your mirror 2 Cor 3:13 esv 13 not like Moses, who would put a veil over his face so that the Israelites might not gaze at the outcome of what was being brought to an end. 14 But their minds were hardened. For to this day, when they read the old covenant, that same veil remains unlifted, because only through Christ is it taken away. 15 Yes, to this day whenever Moses is read a veil lies over their hearts. 16 But when one turns to the Lord, the veil is removed. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. EVERY ONE of us has an image in front of us. A mirror that we see ourselves in.  WHAT that mirror IS…IS EXTREMELY important. 2 Cor 4:16 says that our inward man can become renewed day by day Rom 12:1 amp  I APPEAL to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of [all] the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies [presenting all your members and faculties] as a living sacrifice, holy (devoted, consecrated) and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable (rational, intelligent) service and spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed* to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]. *Do not be conformed: is a STOP SIGN. Forbidding the continuation of an action formally in progress
    1. Make a decisive dedication of yourself. Bodies, thoughts
    2. Do it as an act of worship
    3. STOP being conformed START being transformed
      You can’t just STOP something, you have to also START something   Phil 4:8 niv Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things. Message: Summing it all up, friends, I'd say you'll do best by filling your minds and meditating on these things Prov 4:20-My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.   IS 55:7  INSTEAD OF
