A Exposition on How Faith Comes




Defining Reality According to the Desires of the Heart

The Externalization of the Spirit Into the Natural

C.  Alan Martin

The information covered in this book is designed to help you diagnose spiritual and faith issues. It is true that you do not have to be a Bible scholar to receive from God. But false teachings and incorrect foundational teachings can hinder your faith and spiritual growth. A must for the believer who wants to know how and why things work in the spiritual realm, and why they are not working for you!

Pushing the Envelope of Realty

Today many are breaking upon the meat of the word in revelation and in experience. You can tell who they are because they are learning to speak forth the word of Christ from out of their own spirit (which is "not I but Christ in me"). They have learned who they are in Christ and who Christ is in them. They are on frontiers of spirit and Spirit. They discern a difference between Spirit and spirit. They have discovered what great and glorious thing has been birthed within them. They are the spiritual explorers, the spiritual scientists, and the spiritual vanguard. They are the point of the sword and the tip of the arrow. Their attitude is that of children in a secret clubhouse. They dare to go places their parents have told them are too dangerous. They are overcome with curiosity. What is on the other side of that hill, in the attic, the cellar, and buried long and forgotten within that ancient mound? Many established in the old theology fear to tread in these places. They do not want to know. They already know (or think they know). They know all about that far and secret land. But we want to go forward. It is scary... but it is exciting. We are treading dangerous ground... but that is ok. I expect to get bruised, bumped, and even bit! But I am alive... and I will do exploits in the process. We pause... but He is looking back at us and saying: "are you coming or not?"

Not only CAN God and the will of God be known, we are commanded to know it and walk in the light of the revelation:

Rom 12:2 KJV
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Eph 5:17 KJV
17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord [is].

Col 1:9-10 KJV
9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

Col 4:12 KJV
12 Epaphras, who is [one] of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

Gal 1:4 KJV
4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

Eph 1:8-9 KJV
8 Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
9 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:

God could not say these things if it were not possible to know His complete will.
