Doubt Not

Matthew by THE SPIRIT in chapter 28 witnessed and recorded:

17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted.

18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

There are many who doubt the veracity of the Scripture today even though the evidence is overwhelming.  If I pray to FATHER in Jesus’ Name and I receive a miraculous healing then what more proof do I need?  When FATHER tells me to focus on some anticipated event then it occurs, how can I doubt the Words of Jesus?  Our minds are where the battles of doubt are fought.  My mind is an excellent servant but a harsh taskmaster if it is allowed to control my path.  My heart must be in command where THE SPIRIT connects me to FATHER and our communication is centered thus I seek to be led by THE SPIRIT, not my mind and its logical reasoning.  It only reasons based on the incomplete information given to it.

Much of what FATHER speaks is contrary to what the world says.  The world sees scarcity and plans around that perception whereas FATHER speaks of abundance and is not limited to what man sees.  One thing we must overcome is the perception the world promotes which tends to overshadow the truth of reality.  The physical is subject to change as Jesus revealed time and time again.  FATHER spoke in Deuteronomy chapter 28:

1 “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.”

HE continued to lay out the blessings of abundance to those who obey HIS Voice.  We all will be obedient to someone whether it be man or FATHER.  I choose to diligently obey FATHER.

“All authority” is just what it means.  Jesus has been given authority in all aspects of Heaven and on earth thus all men are subject to His authority in the final analysis.  Just as FATHER has conveyed authority to Jesus, we too are being conveyed the same authority as we come into full sonship.  Jesus’ mission was to serve all of mankind in Love and that is our mission as well.  He did not come to acquire assets for His own consumption at the expense of others in need.  Instead, He promoted cheerful giving and meeting the needs of others.  He withheld not healing and deliverance to those who sought Him.  We should expect the same to be true as we come into full maturity.

Each Age is a progression over the previous one.  The Age of Pentecost was an expansion over the Age of Passover.  This is true of the Age of Tabernacles as well.  Jesus issued a mandate to teach people to observe all things He commanded us.  “To observe” includes “to obey and doubt not”.  Jesus have given the disciples (and us) this very Truth in Mark chapter 11 when He spoke:

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.

23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

We must overcome the world’s teaching in the area of who we are.  The world would tell us that we are not worthy and must live a life in subjection to those who have derivative power over us.  Their power is only temporary and/or perceived and is subject to all power and authority given to Jesus by FATHER.  Let us seek the higher ways of FATHER where true power and authority resides and those who are of the world will no longer control our lives.  Their power will be of none effect.  The key is to doubt not what Jesus has instructed us in accordance with FATHER’S Divine Intent.
