Article 4: “Get Violent Faith”

 
 

Good morning Precious! I have another anointed, life changing word that the Lord shared with me this morning that I would like to share with you, it’s entitled “Get Violent Faith”.

It’s from Luke 18:1-8 regarding the widow woman and the unjust judge. 

1 And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

There were 5 positions that this woman showed in demonstrating violent faith that I believe will defeat the devil in our lives as well as it did in hers.

  1. She refused to accept the work of the enemy in her life! 
    1. I don’t know what you are facing, but refuse to accept any work of the enemy in your life.  Unfortunately there are some who make their comfort in discomfort; but not so for you! Continuously resist his work and stay in your life! It is God’s will and good pleasure that you live the “good life”!

2. She recognized her need for help/helper.

Make no bones about it.  I know you’re a bad brother and a sister not to be reckoned with, but the truth of the matter is, we are not equipped to defeat the devil in our own strength and ability.  Will power will not destroy the yokes of the enemy, only the anointing, and the anointed One, Jesus Christ!  Her going to the Judge indicates her need for a “higher power and greater authority” in her life and situations. And so do we.

3. She had a resolve to continue her petition to the judge.

It wasn’t her tears that moved the unrighteous Judge, or her money, or any political influence. It was her perpetual coming that grieved even his spirit. And so it is with the devil. When we stir up in our heart the resolve to continue trusting the Lord at all cost, to continue our confessions of faith, to continue to keep in the word of God, to continue to stand on the promises of God…it grieves the devil in unexplainable ways!

4. She had a lifestyle of Praying

Notice that Jesus began this parable by saying that “men ought to always pray, and not to faint”. It may seem like this wisdom bit does not go with this story, but in fact it is the catalyst for her victory. A life of prayer positions us to receive the download of heaven.

As duo-citizens we cannot neglect our prayer life if we really want to experience days of heaven on earth. Prayer is the catalyst for giving God’s power access into our lives and into our situations, despite which earthly judge may be governing over our situation.

5. She recognized her rights

You have a different type of confidence when you know your rights and what belongs to you. Many Christians are bold to demand the promises of God in their life because they aren’t convinced that certain rights belong to them. Imagine the believer that smoked for forty years demanding a right to healing in his lungs. The rights that belong to us as believers are not by our right doing, but by our “right receiving” in what Jesus has done on the cross!

Our Lord is looking for THIS TYPE of faith in the earth (Luke 18:8). It’s time to get a way from little faith, from wiggling, some-timey, hope it works type of faith, and move over to violent faith.  It is only this type of faith that grieves the devil, and positions us to truly experience the fullness of the Kingdom of God!

In Conclusion:  If you receive this, declare the following aloud by faith today, “Father God, I declare that I by the power of your Holy Spirit that lives within me, I no longer accept the enemy’s work in my life, I recognize and receive the power of your Holy Spirit with me, I am resolved to continue in the things  of faith all of my days, I submit to a lifestyle of prayer by the empowerment of your Spirit, and I expect the rights earned by the blood of Jesus to manifest in my life and situations today and everyday, in Jesus’ name!”

Love you immensely, Minister Jacquese
