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, evenrepparttar 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),andrepparttar 148055 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 inrepparttar 148056 bible(his law)all things(2 Peter 1:3) relevant torepparttar 148057 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 byrepparttar 148058 word of Christ preached inrepparttar 148059 power ofrepparttar 148060 Spirit by those(both clergy and laity) that he sends torepparttar 148061 world as his witnesses(Rom 10:15).

For anyone on 'Rhema Island' who is facing challenges(storms even torepparttar 148062 scale of a tsunami),victory has been secured at Calvary where Christ died for mankind of all generations,and this isrepparttar 148063 victory that should be enforced by faith in order 'to riderepparttar 148064 storm' and win untorepparttar 148065 glorious end. Therefore be encouraged forrepparttar 148066 Lord within is much more greater thanrepparttar 148067 enemy without(1 John 4:4)!

1 John 5:4-5 (King James Version)

"For whatsoever is born of God overcomethrepparttar 148068 world: and this isrepparttar 148069 victory that overcomethrepparttar 148070 world, even our faith." "Who is he that overcomethrepparttar 148071 world, but he that believeth that Jesus isrepparttar 148072 Son of God?"
