The Spirit of Unbelief

30 Jan

The opposite of faith is not unbelief; it is memory! – Ed Silvoso

Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?” So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. “However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” (Matthew 17:19-21)

How would you describe your faith?
Is it pleasing to God?

As a whole, the body of Christ in America is not just asleep; it’s in a coma. There is a lack of urgency, expectancy, and awareness. To combat this, God is sending modern day prophets to speak life and hope back into the lives of people.

When Bob Griffin spoke in Culpeper on January 15, scales fell of my eyes when he explained that the spirit Jesus referred to that could only come out with prayer and fasting was the spirit of unbelief in his disciples, not the evil spirit causing the boy to have convulsions.

During the time of Jesus’ ministry, the Pharisees were extremely religious people. They knew the Law and worked hard to keep it. They had a form of godliness, but denied the power of God. That same dangerous religious spirit is now pervasive in our culture in America. Yet God says that without faith it is impossible to please Him. Simply being good does not cut the mustard.

To get juice out of a grape, you have to crush the flesh of the grape. To get oil out of an olive, you have to crush the flesh of the olive. To have the full power of the Holy Spirit manifest in the lives of born-again believers, they must crush their flesh. When they do, the extraordinary will become ordinary.

Prayer Power
Father, I praise You as the God of faith. Crush my flesh and that of my family members so that we may manifest the full power of the Holy Spirit within us. May the blood of Jesus cover us and all our memories of the past so that we may be released into the wonderful future You have prepared for us. Bless us to live holy lives in You, with You, and through You. Thank You Jesus. Amen.
