Hope And Faith (1&2) By Pastor Paul Enenche


PRE-CONVENTION SERVICE – SUNDAY, 22ND NOVEMBER 2020

ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): ROMANS 5:1-2; 1 THESSALONIANS 1:3; HEBREWS 11:1; 1 CORINTHIANS 13:13

MESSAGE TOPIC: HOPE AND FAITH (1&2)

BY: DR. PAUL ENENCHE


SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S):


Understanding the relationship between hope and faith

Understanding the difference between hope and faith

Understanding what it takes to shift from hope to faith

THINGS TO NOTE:


Both hope and faith are critical necessities to the life and destiny of the child of God

Hope and faith move together; where you find faith most times, you must find hope

The end objective of both hope and faith are similar if not the same

The desire outcome of both hope and faith are the same

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOPE AND FAITH:


Hope lays the foundation while faith does the construction

Hope without faith is like foundation without construction

Hope pictures the possibility while faith captures the reality

Hope fantasises with the possibilities but faith crystalizes the reality

Hope wishes for a desirable or better outcome in life while faith works out a desirable or better outcome in life

Hope is a little bit passive but faith is active and the two are necessary

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOPE AND FAITH:


Hope sets the expectation while faith brings the manifestation

Hope without faith equals expectation without manifestation

Hope dreams of the future while faith drives into the future

Hope possesses the dream while faith releases the drive

Hope without faith is like dreaming without arriving at the dreamland

Hope deals with optimism while faith deals with dynamism

Hope without faith equals optimistic inaction

SUMMARY:


Faith does not and cannot exist without hope (Heb. 11:1)

1a. It is impossible to be hopeless and be faith-filled (Heb. 11:1)

1b. Faith cannot be present where hope is absent

The sun is the reason for the shadow

Hope cannot produce without faith

2a. To remain at the level of hope alone is to remain in perpetual expectation without a resulting/resultant manifestation

2b. Hope must proceed into faith for results to be evident

WHAT TO DO TO SHIFT FROM HOPE TO FAITH:


Possess valid scriptural reasons for your hope (1Pet. 3:15; Isa. 41:21; Matt. 7:24-25)

Every hope must be backed with a reason to produce at the end

Once hope is backed by Word it moves to faith and faith moves God into action

Having a reason is making hope to stand on solid ground (Matt. 7:24-25)

Boldly declare and announce your Word-based hope expectations continually (Ps. 91:1-4; 2 Cor. 4:13; Job 14:14; Num. 14:28)

Don’t just hope it, say it, don’t just believe it declare it!

2a. What you believe is not real until it is declared

What is real in your heart does not become real in your life until it is spoken out of your mouth

If it remains in your heart you are hoping it but once it comes out of your mouth, you are ‘faithing it’!

If the devil cannot stop you from saying it, then no power can stop you from seeing it!

2b. Thoughts may be wishes but words are laws (Num. 14:28)

Don’t just keep it in your heart, say it out of your mouth; God is God but at the beginning He still spoke! (Gen. 1:1-26)

The proof of your belief is your speech (2 Cor. 4:13)

What is written is superior to what is happening; the spiritual is the senior of the physical; the Word of God is superior to the words of men.

Never be ashamed of your hope (Ps. 119:116; Mark 5:25-29; Phil. 1:20)

3a. Never be ashamed to act out or behave in the line of your expectation (Ps. 119:116)

3b. Never be ashamed to identify with what you expect (Phil. 1:20)

If you hope it, faith it! (Speak it and act it)

Never allow shyness, timidity or human sentiments to limit your audacity and possibilities in God

Many people don’t go far in God because they are over-cautious but over-caution equals under-action

If it pertains to God, it is not care you take, it is risk you take! Revelation-backed risk!

Endeavour to continually rejoice in your hope (Rom. 5:2; 4:18-20)

4a. Celebrate your expectation

4b. Possibility is delivered where expectancy marries excitement

Don’t be looking dull and say that you are expecting something good; your attitude carries magnetic power

PRAYER:


Father, thank You for Your Word to us today. To You be all the Glory Lord, in Jesus’ Name.


PROPHETIC DECLARATIONS:


Every curse of fruitlessness and empty-handedness is deleted now!

Your life that is set on a hill, no devil can hide you!

Before 2020 ends, your hope that has turned into faith must produce your results

That expectation for which you celebrated, I announce its release now!

I announce the reestablishment and restoration of all that is yours that has been kept back by the devil

Every family member missing through kidnap or whatever, I declare them released now!

That frontal headache is over now!

That thing standing between you and your next level, your promotion, between you and the promise of God, that thing is uprooted now!

Every pharaoh that says you should not enter into your inheritance is going down for you!

I arrest everything called ancestral curse and I take authority over near success syndrome and failure at the edge of breakthrough, I command your yoke broken!
