This is the victory that overcomes… 1John 5:4
What overcomes the world? What overcomes the world victoriously? Our faith. It’s not my faith overcomes your world? No, your faith overcomes your world. You need to own this fact that faith is your victory. Then you need to know ‘the faith feedback loop’—you need to know it, prove it and work it—knowing that it will work every time.It was prophesied to me years ago that there would come a day when the things of God will be explained so simply that you would be able to write it on a chalk-board and people would be able to do what’s on the chalk-board and have miraculous results in their life. Well, this is that day!
This is what I call the ‘Faith Feedback Loop.’
This is the hurdle you must get over. You must know the faith feedback loop. You’ve got to know it. You’ve got to understand it—that this will literally put you over in life. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world and this is how simple it is to have victory over any situation and every situation. That’s pretty simple. Right? Say the Word of God, hear the Word of God and have enough faith come to put you over. This is what you need to know, you need to prove, and you need to work. The Faith Feedback Loop.
The first thing you do is you need to say something God said about you. And what happens when you say it? You hear it. What happens when you hear the Word of God? Faith comes. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 What did Jesus say about the mountain? He said that Whosoever would say to the mountain and believe that what he says will come to pass, he will have whatsoever he says. Mark 11:23 Well, this all begins as a small loop.
How many of you know what feedback is? Have you ever heard feedback from a microphone? If you get the microphone to close to the speaker, you may say just one little thing into it. You say something into the microphone and it comes out the speaker now the microphone is picking up what came out of the speaker and it goes right back in at the speed of sound and gets louder and louder, faster and faster. Louder coming out the speaker. Louder going into the microphone. This happens very quickly and what we end up hearing is a high pitched squeal! It’s feedback. That’s what faith feedback is.
When you speak the Word of God you’re getting feedback. It resonates down into your spirit and faith comes. Which causes you to what? Say it with more faith! And you say it with more faith. And it keeps coming, again and again.
By Jesus stripes I was healed. By Jesus stripes I was healed.
By Jesus stripes I was healed!
This builds up in your inner man until faith is the victory that overcomes the problem, that overcomes the world. So, as this is getting bigger and it’s getting stronger and it’s going faster and it’s getting louder it will take you over the problem because faith is the victory that goes over your problem.
You must get over this hurdle of knowing this. Some of you have been stuck not knowing how to do this. You’ve got to have it. You’ve got to see this and have this work in your life. So that you can do it again, and again, and again. You need to take a scripture, say it, hear it, and have faith come. Say it, hear it, and have faith come. Say it, hear it, and have faith come until you overcome a specific problem. And know that you proved it. Know that you overcame your problem with that method. This method, the faith feedback loop. That’s the hurdle I am talking about.
It’s to easy to say that the hurdle is the problem. No, the hurdle is not the problem. This is the hurdle. You’ve got to get over this. Knowing how to operate the Faith Feedback Loop. To know that it works and know that it works every time and in every situation. Once you own this—Faith Feedback Loop—you’ve cleared the hurdle and the problems are no longer significant.
If I had symptoms of sickness come on me I would sit there and make myself say, by Jesus stripes I was healed, sickness can not stay in my body. And then I’d say it again. By Jesus stripes I was healed, sickness can not stay in my body. And I’d say it again. And I’d say it again. I’ll work out on that thing. 5, 10, 20, 40, 60 minutes, until all of a sudden I know. Something happened! I said it and my faith was released in those words where I knew that that sickness left me. Whether the symptoms left immediately or not I knew that my faith overcame that problem. I’ve done this again, and again, and again—financially, spiritually, physically.
This is the hurdle you must get over. You must own this. Especially as Society Members it’s what we are putting into you. I’m writing it very simply on chalk -boards. You’ve got to take this and do it and it will work for you every time. Once you’ve gotten over the first hurdle—this hurdle—and it’s taken you over something specific in life, you’ll never be the same. You’ll know that you can work the Faith Feedback Loop again, and again, and again… And it gets easier.
This should excite you because now you know that you can get over any problem in life with God’s Word in your mouth. You can have it. But, you’re going to have to have some feedback going on. You’re going to get into that feedback loop. You initiate it. I may help you out. This message today will put faith in you to get that spindle rolling. To get it going in the right direction. But, you are going to have to be the one to feed it with your words and get that feedback started.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
So then faith comes. Faith just comes. If we just knew how to have faith to come. Then we could get enough faith to overcome our problem. Any problem in the world you can overcome by faith. We all understand that, right? We all understand that if we have a certain amount of faith, that faith would cause us to overcome our problems. I don’t care what problem it is. Faith is the Victory. Wether it’s sickness, lack, or any number of other issues. You could have an incurable illness and if you had enough faith to act on it, it would go away and cease to be a problem.
Well, how do we get that kind of faith? Faith comes by hearing. It comes. It just comes. That part of the Feedback just comes. So faith comes. But, how does it come? By hearing and hearing by the Word of God. You’ve got to hear it. You have to know these things. You are required to know these things here (MHGS).
But the righteousness which is of faith speaks. Romans 10:6
But the righteousness which is of faith speaks. The righteousness of faith does something. It speaks. Well, I’ve got news for you, you’re in the loop already. If you speak the Word of God you’re going to hear the Word of God and you’ve already begun that feedback loop. Faith speaks.
Your faith speaks.
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart:
that is, the word of faith, which we preach; Romans 10:8
But what saith it? The Word!
My faith speaks. What saith it? The Word. What does faith speak? Faith speaks the Word. When you speak the Word you’re going to hear the Word and that Faith Feedback Loop is going to begin. This is very simple it’s like you could write it on a chalkboard. I wish God would make this so simple that we could write it on a chalkboard.
So the righteousness of faith speaks. What does it speak? The Word. Where is it? It’s near you. It’s in your mouth. Number one, it’s in your mouth then it’s in your heart. Where does faith go. Where does it grow? It grows in your heart. It’s a force that will grow up in your heart and you don’t know how it happens. You don’t know how that faith grew up in you to where you spoke something. Just like God, remember that’s how He does things. You spoke something and that’s going to come to pass. You don’t care if somebody comes along and slaps you. It’s going to come to pass. That’s faith.
How do you get to that point from saying. You keep saying. You keep saying.
Romans ten seventeen says, Faith comes by hearing. Verse six says, the righteousness of faith speaks. Verse eight says, What does it say? It says the Word. Now go to verse ten.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10
Is with the mind that man believes? No. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Salvation means deliverance, healing, soundness, prosperity, or simply whatever you need. Is this to difficult? What part of you is going to believe? Your heart or your spirit man does. Your mind is going to have a hard time with it. Because it always wants to understand and figure things out. But faith is of the heart or spirit man. It’s with your heart that you are going to believe.
When you say it your heart believes it. And at some point your heart is going to believe it enough. And you are going to say it and that will be the end of it. Because it says right here in Romans 10:10 that with the mouth confession is made unto. Confession is made unto. Unto what? That all inclusive word, Salvation. You can be saved. You can be healed. You can be delivered. You can be prospered. You can have any verse of scripture. You can have any Word of God this way. This is normal christianity. This is the way you are supposed to do it. It does not diminish the gifts of the Spirit but this is normal christianity and this is what you are learning how to do.
So you are going to–with your mouth–keep confessing until the salvation shows up. As you’ve go that faith feedback loop going, faith is coming, faith is coming, faith is coming. And then your mouth confesses unto your healing. Then there with come one time when you say, By Jesus stripes I was healed. And it with go shwooph out of you and fix something. It will go shwooph out of you and the devils will leave. It will go shwooph out of you and the angels go and bring you a big bag of money. Or bring you a raise. Or bring you a promotion. Or do whatever you are confessing. Or move the mountain.
Can you do this? This is simple enough, I can do it. I’ve got faith feedback going on. And I want you to see that this isn’t some equation that I came up with to be tricky or fancy. This is how we walk with God.
This is How We Walk With God
This is how God does things. When we’re doing this we are walking with Him. Remember, this is God’s idea. And you are going to walk with Him in this. You’re going to put yourself right in there too. God and me walking together. We’re saying. We’re hearing. Faith’s coming. We’re doing this. It’s God’s idea and you and God are workers together.
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2 Corinthians 6:1
We are workers together with Him. This is God’s plan. This is God’s method. When we get in line with it we’re working with Him. We have the same spirit of faith according as it is written I believe therefore have I spoken.
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; 2 Corinthians 4:13
We are working together with Him. We have the same spirit of faith. Who is The Spirit of Faith? The Holy Spirit. This is God’s idea. Are you seeing this now? It is God’s idea that when He–in the beginning–what did He do? He believed something and He spoke it. So, everything that we have, see, and know came out of this–believing and speaking. So, if we are going to work with God we are going to be doing the same thing. We’re going to be speaking words and believing words. And speaking words and believing words. There is no other way to walk with God.
I understand we all have this concept of what it means to walk with God–it’s usually religious and most likely wrong. We’ve got to clean that old concept out of there because that’s not walking with God that’s just a concept of walking with God. This is walking with God. If you do this–if you get inside that feedback loop–that’s you walking with God. You’re working with Him. You’re walking with Him. He is the Word. You are speaking the Word. We have the same spirit of faith according as it is written, I believed therefore have I spoken. We also believe and therefore speak. Who did this originally? God did. Who’s image did He create you in? His image. This is so simple. We make it complex.
I learned this years ago and it just gets stronger every day. That when I say the Word of God, that’s me walking with God. When I don’t say the Word of God, I’m not walking with God. I may feel fine. I may feel alright with God. I may know my sins are forgiven. I may know I’m going to die and go to heaven. But, that’s not me walking with God. Me walking with God is saying His Word.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over… So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; Genesis 1:26-27
God made man in His image and said of him to have dominion over. How was Adam going to have “dominion over?” If you just read from the beginning up till this verse, the only thing you would know about God is that He is someone who speaks words and has them come to pass. So, by the law of first reference, the only thing we could know about Adam–created in the image of God–it that he is someone who speaks words and has them come to pass. Then we have much more revelation as we read the rest of the bible but it began there. It began with spoken words. So here’s Adam, in God’s image–Let Us make man in Our image. What image? As a person who can speak words, believe they come to pass, and they come to pass.
And remember, it said, Let them have dominion. How were they going to have dominion? By their spoken words. That’s how God created man to have dominion and that’s how they had dominion. They’d say, “lion shut up and sit down.” Right? “Tree grow. No fruit come off of you hereafter forever. Mountain be removed and cast into the sea.” This is how they did it. They were in God’s image.
Who’s image are you created in? In God’s image. How are you going to walk with God? By speaking words. Adam had to walk with God by speaking words. If you don’t believe me go over to Genesis chapter two.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7
Man became a living soul. The phrase living soul is a little bit blind to us. I did some hebrew language study on this. Actually, I have a whole book on it–proper speech. These words–a living soul–literally means in hebrew, a speaking spirit. And man became a speaking spirit. God created man in His own image. He created him a speaking spirit.
You are the only creature on this earth that has the ability to speak words and believe they come to pass. Parrots can’t. Monkey’s can’t. We can. How are we created in God’s image. This! We were created a speaking spirit. That’s how we are like God. Got it?
So, if I’m going to walk with God, He’s a Speaking Spirit, I’m a speaking spirit, we are going to walk together. If we are going to be with each other. Then I need to be a speaking spirit and I need to be speaking the same thing He’s speaking. That’s how you walk with God. You don’t walk with God by thinking, you don’t walk with God by feeling, you walk with God by speaking. Because, He’s a Speaking Spirit and He created you to be a speaking spirit. If you still don’t believe me go to Genesis chapter three.
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden… Genesis 3:8
They heard the VOICE of the Lord God walking in the garden. People say, “I want to walk with God, I want Him to hold my hand and we’ll skip together.” That’s not how you walk with God. You walk with Him by saying. It’s with His voice that you walk. What is a voice? It’s saying something. They heard the VOICE of the Lord God WALKING.
What did they hear walking? The voice of the Lord God. If they were going to walk with God they were going to walk with His voice. They heard His voice walking. Does He hear your voice walking? Your voice needs to be walking.
When we say walk with somebody we mean live life together with them. So this is where Adam fellowshipped with God. It was in spoken words. They heard the voice of the Lord God walking.
Now what happen when you hear the Word of God? Faith comes. They knew this back here. This is not some foreign thing. This was something that was going on from the beginning. They were speaking spirits. They heard the voice of God walking speaking. And to walk with Him they had to be speaking spirits.
Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3
All of these things that I’ve written about here today are foundational things. I don’t know why we don’t hear about them in many churches. But, this is what you need to grow up in. Grow up! Here’s the question. Can two walk together except they be in agreement? The answer is, No. What are they agreed in? In what they say. So, walking together–according to the bible and we are basing this on the bible. I’m not basing my walking together on some conceptual thing that I’ve just thought of. Walking together in the bible means you need to be in agreement. So, when you want to walk with God you are going to have to be a speaking spirit and say the same thing. That’s what agreement means–saying the same thing.
You can’t walk with God and not say the same thing. Let me say it this way. You can only walk with God by saying the same thing. You only walk with God when you are saying His Word out your mouth. Remember, He is the Word. When you are saying His Word out your mouth, you’re walking with Him. When you’re not saying His Word out your mouth, you’re not walking with Him. You only walk with God when you are saying His Word out your mouth.
I will bring this into this other realm just for one second. When you are speaking in tongues, Who’s words are you speaking. You’re speaking His words. When I speak in tongues I’m speaking God’s words, I’m walking with God.
It’s because I’m speaking. The speaking is the key. You are a speaking spirit. So I’m speaking God’s Word. So if someone says, “Yes, I’m walking with God.” and they are doing something other than speaking–either speaking in tongues or speaking scriptures, then they’re not. You are walking with God when you speak.
This is something you must have. You must own this. Do you know what I mean when I say own it? Meaning, I know how to do this, I know this, this is mine, and by owning it I can show other people this is how you do it. Because, I own it. It’s mine. And many times with owning something you’ve got to purchase it. Which means it my take you some study. It might take you some looking into. It might take you some reading this message over and over. But you must own this. Especially as Society members and people that belong here. This is part of what we require. You’ve got to have this.
If I tell you that I want to walk with God today, how am I going to do that? I’m going to speak His Word. Take a couple of scriptures that pertain to what you really want and then you are going to say those words. And as you are saying those Words you will be walking with God. You’ll be working with God. You’ll be in the middle of that feedback loop, which produces itself in your life. Every Word of God has the ability to reproduce itself in your life if you walk with God in it.
