Faith is a “Person”

By sesan oguntade

The walls of Jericho fell within a twinkle of an eye! (Joshua 6)

The Red sea waters were parted within seconds! (Exodus 14)

Giant Goliath fell from a stone that came from the catapult of a small boy called David! (1 Samuel 17)

The grave conceived a friend of Jesus- Lazarus, but had to give him up within seconds! (John 11)

Abraham made a statement and the ram for sacrifice in place of his son Isaac appeared on the Mountain! (Genesis 22:8)

Jesus blessed 5 loaves of bread and two fishes and the supplies of bread and fishes to the venue grew and all the people were fed! (Mathew 15:36)

Jesus made a statement and the storm stopped its troubles!

I can cite so many instances of great happenings from the scriptures. Let me however tell you more about what I am driving at by taking the cases described above one by one.
Case 1: Red Sea

Moses spoke the “Faith Language” to the waters of the Red sea and the “Faith Man” came into action. He brought the most “sophisticated equipment” to the spot immediately to part the waters. The “Faith Man” was very efficient and He doesn’t have to spend long hours to do this. He did the job perfectly.

Case 2: David’s stone

David was a small boy with stones and a catapult as his only major physical instrument of crushing obstacles. He knew he can surmount any obstacle by calling the “Faith Man” into action and he did this by uttering this “Faith Language”:

” but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defiled”

– 1Samuel 17:45 (KJ2000)

The faith Man came into action immediately and He had to drive the stone from the catapult of small David to travel at a speed that is very frightening.

Well, the stone pierced through the head of Goliath and he fell down dead.

Case 3: Lazarus came forth

Jesus loved Lazarus but the grave wanted to conceive and it picked Jesus’ friend- Lazarus. The question now is “Who will be the doctor that will deliver the grave of Lazarus?”

Well Jesus knew the “Doctor” to employ; He called upon the “Faith man” to do the job.

Jesus says ” and said Father, I thank you that you have heard Me ”

-John 11:41 (KJ2000)

As usual the “Faith man” came into action and showed everybody around why He was the Doctor around. Lazarus came forth from the grave!
Case 4: Abraham and the Ram

Abraham declared unto his son- Isaac and his servant

“God will provide Himself a Lamb for a burnt offering”

-Genesis 22:8 (KJ2000)

Immediately he uttered this the “Faith Man” looked around for the best Ram available and pushed it to the venue of sacrifice for Abraham’s use. Isn’t that wonderful! He even knows how to get the best ram!
Case 5: Jesus fed the Multitude

Jesus had compassion on his followers and took a decision to feed them but there was a problem, there were only 5 loaves of bread and two fishes. These can not feed the population of over 5000 people.

Jesus knew He had to invite the “Faith Man” into the situation. The Bible says

“And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks, He distributed to the disciples” John 6:11 (KJ2000) and immediately the “Faith Man” brought the host of heaven together in heaven and baked more bread and caught more fishes to feed the multitude.

The “Faith Man”- the “Chief Cook” led His people to the venue with enough bread and fishes to feed the people.

The “Faith man” understands only the “Faith language” and He is ready to come even into your situation when you issue a “Faith language” command.

The Bible defined Faith as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen (Hebrew 11). If Faith is a substance and evidence, then who says faith is not a “person?”
