So many miss the point that James is trying to make between the connection of faith, and works: James 2:18, “Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.” James is by no means saying that your works, and your faith are the same: one thing that James is saying is that you do not know which door of works contains your door of faith where the thing that you hope for is behind; therefore, you need to work them all in order to find the one with the faith to bring to pass the thing that you hoped for, or you may miss the door with the thing that you hope for. So the only way to find the faith door is to work all the doors in which you see or hear faith signs. Let’s take an example right out the bible in which I used today in an earlier tweet, Mark 9:23-25, “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.24 And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. 25 When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.” So you know how people can get when the crowd comes: they can lose confidence, faith, and self-esteem while no longer believing in anything at that time with any assurance. Well, when the man asked Jesus to help his unbelief so that his son could be freed of the foul spirit possession, Jesus the man, and not Jesus the God, had to find the door that had the faith behind it to give the man that which he hoped for. Now Jesus operating as God is off limits here for now, but Jesus operating as a man, just like you and I, this is the path in which Jesus has to follow in order to leave the example to us of how to operate in the faith as a man once he does leave to go be with his Father. So Just like you and I would have to do, Jesus works with the man until when he sees: when Jesus saw that the people came running together, this must have been the door where the faith to help the man’s unbelief was behind because this is when Jesus as a man knew to do: let’s get this done before the people arrive bringing you your unbelief.
So how does “Your Faith Activity Fill The Pipeline, For Your Manifestations To Come? It became quite clear to me that I should explain this as a man of God, but coming from an outside Salesperson’s point of view. And since I’ve worked in sales most of my life from the time when cold calls, whether office to office, or residential to residential; and were made in person, or made over the phone, I’ve found the sales process to have at least four of the same things in common with the faith process: they are both the substance of things hoped for, and they both require that you hear good to know when each has come. I have entered into the same retail store the day after a minister had went into that store with hopes of coming out with a donation of paint substance, but the minister came out with nada. What in the world made me believe that I could go back into that same store the next day, and come out any different than a true minister of God had just experienced? It could have been from the faith activity already built up in my pipeline, and I was experiencing manifestations on a regular basis to where I was just on a roll? Well, let’s stop talking maybes, and let’s talk what actually happened. I went into that same store, talked to the same store manager, and to rub alcohol on the burn, I took the same minister back into the same store with me to see how it should have been done. No, lol: see, there I go again. I don’t really know why I took the same minister into the store, for it could have reminded the store manager to say no again. Anyway, I took the minister, and we came out with more paint than what we knew what to do with: I don’t know. In parallel, and I’ve done this many times when training someone: the telemarketing rep would make the hope call to a business, and as all salespeople know too well, you only do your talk to the decision maker. So, to make a long story short, the decision maker said no to the rep. Well, you have already guessed what happened next, right? So I call right back in less than a few minutes, and I talk to the same decision maker, and I make the sale. Now here is my point, what was the thing that I had in common with both the paint faith call, and the phone sales call at the time I took over to put my works on each? The thing that I had going for me on each of those calls was that I knew that when the faith came to ask for the paint or to close the deal on the sales call, I would hear it, and know that it is now mine because now faith is. Many sons and daughters already have their minds made up one way of the other as they go in, and they may win the coin flip at times. However, to get what you hope for on the spot at that time, you have to go in knowing that the faith for that you hope for will come for you to hear it during the moment that you are engaged in working your faith substance. I just know when I know to go for what I hoped for, and doubt does not even come into play. Every good sales person knows about the pipeline, and every person of faith should keep one filled for manifestations to regularly come. Full faith is different for each thing that you hoped for, so having short term, and mid-term faith manifestations coming down the pipeline, will keep your joy and hope strong as you have to, and will wait on those things hoped for that are longer term producers.
