Confidence is the currency of faith, having the promise of great reward; it is the currency of angels, and heaven. God told Abraham walk before me and be perfect; I am your exceeding great reward (confidence). He tells us to keep his word, and his love is perfected in us; God then becomes our confidence, our recompense of great reward (Jehovah Kawsal…God our confidence in things that seem foolish to the world, but are the power of God). It is the power of God to those that believe him, allowing them to become his sons, and daughters by their deeds, and by their confessions. As we keep the word of God which we speak, his love is perfected in us, and God becomes our confidence, enabling us to go where no man has gone before. God dwells in the light where no man can approach, and like Abraham whom he told to be perfect, his love is perfected in us, and that is the proof that we are in him; where no flesh and blood person can go without Christ….man’s final frontier.

Psalm 65:5-6—Blessed is the man whom thou choosest , and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple. 5 By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea.

Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble (whom I have made to know hunger, thirst, nakedness, and to be still, to show him my life which is by every word that comes from my mouth), and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
1 Tim. 6:16 — Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

To as many as believed God, to them he gave the power of sons, to become the sons of God. To we who believe God, he gives power to become his sons. You just can’t say you are a son of God, because it has to go way beyond just the word, you have to receive power to be a son of God. His kingdom is in power not word. Confidence has a great promise of reward, and sons of God have no confidence in the flesh and blood conditions of their lives, but have placed all confidence in every word that comes from the mouth of God. That’s why they are sons; their lives follow every word that God has spoken for them to follow. It is no mystery, but we can clearly see those who are the sons of God. Those who are the sons of God, are so because they have received confidence to be sons, confidence that gets them beyond the veil of flesh and blood, and brings them into the very presence of God.

Those that believe God, Jesus said they would do the same works that Jesus did. If you believe God, you have received power to do the works of Jesus, and by that power you are able to do even greater works, because Jesus is now gone to the Father who is greater than he. In this the children of light are made manifest, because they do the will of the Father, which is expressly revealed as Jesus.
The will of God is no mystery; the will of God for us is Jesus, we are to grow up into all the fullness of him. Jesus even as a child told his flesh and blood parents: ‘I must be about my Father’s business’. His earthly parents had one set of priorities, but he knew his heavenly Father had the blueprint of another plan for his life that he had to follow.

Confidence has the promise of great reward, and is not just the currency of faith; it is the currency of angels, it is the currency of heaven. If you were to put your tongue on the two poles of a nine volt battery, which I often did a kid; you can feel the current pull at your tongue; you can’t see it but you know it is there, and if you hook it up to the appropriate appliance it will drive that appliance.
People who believe God receives from God along with the spirit of love, and a sound mind, the spirit of power, both dunamis, and exousia power to do things: all the things that Jesus did, and now expects those who believe him to do also. It is significant that these three characteristics of the spirit that we receive as sons of God are mentioned; power, love, and a sound mind.

Faith is putting your belief into action, it defines the particular area that you are resolved to act in, or act upon; it is the active condition of your believing. In order to believe God you have to take actions based on your expectations of receiving the things that define God in the way that you desire to have him for your living condition: his love, his power and his sound mind. There are as many different kinds of faiths, as there are things that people want to have for their living conditions. Faith is seen in the works carried out according to the substance of such things that we are anticipating manifested for our living conditions. The kind of faith that reproduces Jesus is the kind of faith that worketh by love. Love is what God is, not a quality that God has, for God is love.

Almost all men will tell you they are sons of God, but their deeds cannot support that claim. That claim has to go well beyond words, and produce the works of those that believe on the Son of God; for his kingdom is not in word, but in the power given to sons of God who believe God. They raise the dead, cast out devils, heal all manner of sickness and disease; where necessary they walk on water, talk to storms and speak calm to troubled seas, even exercise dominion over all of God’s creation.

The promise of the Father is that we shall receive power from on high to be the sons of God. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting . 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

The men at the helm of today’s church will never be found walking over to the coffin of the dead to raise them back to life because they have no confidence in the gift of God to do so. All their confidence is in flesh that shrinks away from the majesty, and high calling of God’s gift wherein we are called to stand and feed in his strength.

Though all power is of God, we know that not all power are aligned with the purposes of God, any more than all men are holy, though they were all made in the image of God. Satan is the prince of the power of the atmosphere on earth; where we in ignorance still allow him to operate as such, he is operating in our office, for Jesus told us plainly: now is the prince of this world cast out, now is the judgment of this world. While Jesus and the disciples were crossing the sea, Satan exercised that power to move fierce winds, and the waves of the sea to threaten the safety of the ship, and crew including Jesus. Jesus stood up and limited the power of Satan with the power of God that is without measure. As sons of God, authority to be sons of God, and power to execute the judgment that is written is given to us.

JEHOVAH KAWSAL: The Lord Our Confidence. God is our confidence.

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble (whom I have made to know hunger, thirst, nakedness, and to be still, to show him my life which is by every word that comes from my mouth), and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. 1 Tim. 6:16 — Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting.

God is our confidence, Jehovah Kawsal….the Lord our Confidence. To the world of unbelievers, this confidence seem foolish, and silly, but it is none other than Christ the Power of God. He says if you keep my word, I will come to you, and my Father will also come to you; and we will make our dwelling with you, having supper with you and you with us in fellowship as one. This is the exceeding greatness of the mighty power of God which is according to Ephesians 1:14-23. Where two streams of water flow together, their waters thereafter are indistinguishable; you are spirit, God is spirit, Jesus is spirit, and you are all one spirit, the Almighty (all are yours, and ye are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s); nothing is now impossible to you because you are no longer separated by the veil of the flesh. Confidence is not just an attitude, it is the Spirit that God gives to his sons, to be his sons; confidence is God.

Confidence is not just the currency of faith, having promise of great reward; it is the current that moves us along. God says I am your confidence, and will keep your foot from being taken (in a snare)

Confidence has the promise of great reward in the power to get wealth, whereby God establishes the covenant that he swore to Abraham to fulfill in Christ; Confidence is not just the currency of faith; it is the currency of angels, it is the currency of heaven...God is our confidence, our confidence is God who keeps our feet from harmful snares.

Confidence is not just the currency of faith, it is the current that moves in us, and moves us along to places where no man that is flesh and blood can go. Confidence is Jesus the exceeding greatness of the power of God that is coming to us as we keep the word that perfects his love in us. By that confidence we can do things that no man can do, but without this confidence, we can do nothing. But whoso keepeth God’s word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him; and knowing this gives us enormous confidence (a sense of authority) which goes a long way as the currency of faith.

As we keep the word of God, God becomes our confidence (Jehovah Kawsal….the Lord my Confidence) in things that appear foolish and silly to the world but is the power of God, his love is perfected in us, and perfect love cast out all fear which has torment. Three are so many psychosomatic disorders that do not reflect soundness of mind these days including depression, anxiety, restlessness, irrational fear for which a zillion pills and tons of drugs are given as cure, but keeping the word of God perfects his love within us, and perfect love casts out all fear.

Keeping the word of God perfects us, and confirms that we are in God. To know that we are in God is no small matter, for to be in God is to be in a place where the scripture declares that no man can go. God dwells in the light, inhabiting eternity, where no man can draw near to him. You have gone beyond the veil of the flesh, that middle wall of partition that separates us from God. As you are thus in God, you are in the light where God dwells, and where no flesh and blood man can approach; yet, there you are in him, ready to do the impossible, cause all things are possible with you. If you are in a place where no man can go, what does that make you.

Joel 2:28— And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall speak my word.
Micah 5:1-9— …then the remnant …shall return unto the children of Israel. 4 And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth. 7 And the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the LORD, as the showers upon the grass, that tarrieth not for man, nor waiteth for the sons of men (this remnant, the body of Christ, shall not be hobbled by the limitations of man). 8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles in the midst of many people as a lion among the beasts of the forest, as a young lion among the flocks of sheep: who, if he go through, both treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver. 9 Thine hand shall be lifted up upon thine adversaries, and all thine enemies shall be cut off.
John 12:31—Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.

Luke 12:27-37 …seek not ye what ye shall eat , or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

1 Corinthians 3:17-23 —21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; 22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present , or things to come; all are yours; 23 And ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.
Ephesians 1:14-23 ….that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, 19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21 Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named , not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble (whom I have made to know hunger, thirst, nakedness, and to be still, to show him my life which is by every word that comes from my mouth), and to revive the heart of the contrite ones .
1 Tim. 6:16 — Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.

Christ is God's plan to gather all things together into one, even in Christ. When we come into him or mortality is subsumed into something larger than the universe, and bigger than life. We are a bran new creation. We merge into Christ, and Christ merges into God seamlessly. Christ is the breaking down of the middle wall of partition. Where two rivers merge, you can't distinguish their individual flow anymore. This is where God exhorts us to find ourselves in Christ, and to cease from man, for flesh and blood cannot inherit God, or God's things.

In Christ we transcend the veil of the flesh and blood mortal separation from God who is spirit, and now have access to the powers of the world to come while we are yet in this temporal world. All things are given to us whether of life or death, or things present, or those to come; all are yours; ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s.
