When you set out to bring to pass the thing that you hope for, it is as though you are leaving home base to head to a destination unknown. I mean, you know that you are on your way to bring to pass the thing that you hope for, but you are not sure of just what that may mean. It’s as if you were to get into your car to go on vacation without a destination already in mind, your going may end you up anywhere; or you may end up going to no place at all. I am glad to report from what I have seen on a regular basis over all these years is that most everyone will usually have a vacation destination already known before leaving home. However, on the other hand, I also must report that from what I have seen on a regular basis over all these years is that hardly anyone will usually have a bring to pass the thing hoped for destination already known. That would be just great if it was like a vacation, but it is still of a destination not of our choice to make. If we could just know where the destination to the thing that we hoped for would be, then it would not be a thing that required faith. You see, that is the mystery of it all: the members of the body of Christ have the currency in the world also in which the people of the world uses; and then we have the currency (faith) of the Kingdom of God, in which mostly the members of the body of Christ will also use. I did say that mostly the members of the Body of Christ will hang their lively hood on the currency of faith, but the Lord will respond to any in faith who will believe that he is as they call on his name for help. Do you remember that no greater faith found in all of Israel Roman centurion fellow; the one who put the believers faith to the curve? He told Jesus, you don’t have to show up, just say it, and it will be so. You remember that guy? And it was another fellow who just acted up in every which way but the Christian way; and Jesus responded to his request to save him as they hung on the cross together: now you go read Jesus own words for yourself, but I can “imagine” a very cool Jesus saying to the man this, if he wasn’t in all that pain, “I got you covered man.” Man, or woman, it was like this guy just showed up at the door of Heaven with Jesus; and after he had a little talk with Jesus, Jesus just told the bouncer that this guy will be with me in paradise. WOW! So yeah, the door is open for all on the spot first timers who can in belief, flash and back up their talk with the currency of Faith. Unlayered, Layer After Layer.
Now for some, making it to the vacation destination may have been the thing hoped for, but they still would have to leave their home base where the evidence remains unseen in order to have whatever it is that they hoped for. It is easy to make the first step in the right direction even with the destination not yet known. And why is it easy to make the first step? The first step to that you hope for will be taken based on following the substance that matches the hope of the Word in which you are standing on. Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” So you do not want to take a step in any direction unless the direction comes with the faith to move you. It’s like following your spiritual navigation as you would follow the navigation in your car to your destination. If my navigation in my car does not tell me to make a turn, or to stay on the freeway for the next 200 miles, then I will not be making a faith move based on anything else that I hear. In the case of a car’s navigation, your faith to move will also come by hearing, but hearing by the word of the navigation. This is how you know to make your steps or your turns. In the case of your spiritual navigation to bring to pass that which you hoped for, your faith to move will come by hearing, but hearing by the Word of God. In the use of our car’s navigation, or mobile phone’s navigation (same thing), we will receive voice prompts, turning signals, and area display plus more as the substance to make sure that we take the turn when we should. And each turn takes another layer, and another layer away to bring us closer to our destination. In the use of our spiritual navigation, we can also receive voice prompts, turning signals, and displays plus more on our way to bringing the pass that in which we hope for; however, we have to have our destination or Word, made flesh or natural for our use.

When we can receive the Word more in the form of that in which we hoped for, then we are able to move layer after layer away to bring us closer to our destination hoped for. We understand that faith to move come by hearing, but how does this help us to have the word made flesh, or natural for our use. The Word was made Jesus, but the Word was made Jesus through the process of child birth: this is the substance in which the Father took the spiritual Word, and made it flesh or natural to be here among us. We have to do the same thing every time that we need something from Heaven because we can’t get it on earth: we need to have the Word made flesh or natural for our use. If faith comes by hearing, then how can we have it made flesh or natural to work with? Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Well again, we know that faith cometh by hearing: Romans 10:17, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” Now we need to identify the faith in its natural substance, as we did earlier with the faith that we heard spiritually by the Word of God, in order to have it made flesh or natural for our use. Hebrews 11:1 above tells us that the faith that came when we heard it by the Word of hope, can be identified in the natural by the substance that match up with that same Word of hope. So when we hear that faith has come, or has been transported to us by the Word, we can begin to look to for the substance to come in which we have already heard come by the Word. And when we see the Spiritual Word heard made into the flesh or natural substance, the substance will be made into that we hoped for. And as you gather the substance needed from along the way, you will reach the destination of the thing hoped for. Unlayered, Layer After Layer.
