God’s Word is His will. And faith is what activates the promises of God. Jesus was the biggest Word of Faith Teacher. He majored in faith. He taught it all the time. To say that telling people faith can’t guarantee answered prayer is to say that Jesus is lying or didn’t really mean what He taught. Show me one time Jesus said that faith sometimes doesn’t work. You cannot. Evangelicals don’t preach the word of faith but the word of unbelief and as a result are devoid of miracles, signs and wonders and even prosperity!
Only deceived anemic evangelicals who deny miracles and tongues are for today advocate that we can’t take Jesus’ teaching out of the context. We must ask who He was speaking to and under what circumstances. When the truth is Jesus faith teachings in the gospel are for everyone and for today! Jesus preached and expected faith not unbelief! And unbelief limited His mighty works!
53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there.
54 When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?
55 Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?
56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?”
57 So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.”
58 Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
14 And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying,
15 “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water.
16 So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.”
17 Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.”
18 And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 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.
21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”
