Jeremiah 33:3 (The Message) "Call to me and I will answer you. I'll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own."
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (New International Version) "However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him" "but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even deep things of God."
Psalm 119:18 (New International Version)
"Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law."
Real faith is expressed in love(Gal 5:6),and evidence of love is obedience to God(John 14:15). In obedience to God,real faith humbly seeks God,who then reveals by his Spirit in bible(his law)all things(2 Peter 1:3) relevant to fulfillment of destiny. Faith then proceeds to use those revealed things to fulfill destiny,for faith without works is dead(James 2:26)!
Where then is 'Rhema Island'? It is that wonderful place in God where anyone can find,pursue,and fulfill his/her divine destiny both now and in eternity! It is a global network of people who appear to be 'superheroes' when they are just heroes of faith(Heb 11)! To get to that isle,each person must be born again through a personal encounter with Jesus Christ(John 3: 3). This process of 'rebirth'(the new birth) involves repentance(Mark 1:14-15) from sin,and faith(John 3:16, 5:24) in Christ as one's personal Lord and Saviour. And this process is initiated by word of Christ preached in power of Spirit by those(both clergy and laity) that he sends to world as his witnesses(Rom 10:15).
For anyone on 'Rhema Island' who is facing challenges(storms even to scale of a tsunami),victory has been secured at Calvary where Christ died for mankind of all generations,and this is victory that should be enforced by faith in order 'to ride storm' and win unto glorious end. Therefore be encouraged for Lord within is much more greater than enemy without(1 John 4:4)!
1 John 5:4-5 (King James Version)
"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh world: and this is victory that overcometh world, even our faith." "Who is he that overcometh world, but he that believeth that Jesus is Son of God?"
