'God has given Him the Name which is above every name... And He will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.' (Philippians 2:9, Isaiah 9:6)
I love to boast about my Jesus. My God is the greatest, most powerful, most wonderful God in the world. And He loves you! Jesus is the King of Peace - He brings peace to those whose lives have been ravaged by war; peace flows to those who are sick and in need of a healing touch; His perfect peace will minister to your soul as you put your faith in the Prince of Peace. Politicians like to boast about their military power, they have parades celebrating their might and influence, but I want to tell you, 3000 years ago, God destroyed the most powerful army in the world when He deliverd Israel out of Egypt. There is nothing He cannot do.

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone should hear My voice and open the door, then I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me" (Revelation 3:20). Jesus wants to become your friend, part of your home, part of your family. God is not just somebody up in Heaven; He sent His Son into the world to reconcile us back to God. What a miracle! God so loved you that He sent His only Son. I am not talking about religion, but the reality of who Jesus is.

I want you to understand that to Jesus there is no problem He cannot solve. In your life today, God had the solution even before the problem arose; He sees the end from the beginning. When this Roman Centurion in Matthew 8 came to Jesus saying, "My servant is critically ill", Jesus responded, "I will come to your house and heal him". What an amazing statement, Jesus the Son of God, the creator of the universe, wants to come to your house and solve your problem! Jesus won't reject you or dismiss your need, He's concerned about you. Jesus wants to become your friend, part of your home, a member of your family.

What is faith? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things you do not see. Faith is not something intellectual in your mind. You can't learn faith in university. Faith is learnt through the experience of life. It is only through trials and tribulations that you learn the power and effectiveness of faith.

If any man be in Christ he is a new creation, the old has gone, and the new life begins. You are not reformed, rehabilited or re-educated - as a believer you are re-created. Your old sinful life is dead and buried. You've been born again into the Kingdom of God. You are a new creation - literally re-created - all past mistakes and sins forgiven, you are made new! Ephesians 2 teaches that we are saved by grace through faith. Our salvation is the gift of God. You can't earn salvation. You can't buy salvation. Salvation is a free gift to those who put their faith in the finished work of the cross. The good new is, you don't wait until you die to receive eternal life, you have it now! Yes, your body will die, but your spirit will live on with Jesus.

Sin and sickness are not from God. The purpose of the first coming of Jesus was to make a way of escape from the evil which Satan, and ultimately man, by his disobedience, brought into the world: "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, to destroy the works of the devil!" - 1 John 3:8. However, this is only in part today, none of us is perfect in ourselves, we live in a world of sin and sickness and are surrounded by them. When Christ returns we shall be taken out of this world into the Kingdom of Heaven, then there will be no more sin, sickness or death. Until then, walking by faith, we must overcome sin - and temptation - and sickness. The Bible makes it clear, the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life. Just as we receive wages for the employment we undertake, so spiritually we receive wages too: if we choose to work for the devil and live in sin, our wages are death - if we choose to work for God and follow His commands, our wage is eternal life.

I stand on the authority of the Word of God. I believe the Bible is true! When I was sick with cancer, I didn't go to a healing evangelist, I went to the Word of God, and God completely healed me - no operation, no treatment - I only had God and the Bible, and that is all I needed to confound the doctors. They were shocked, they didn't believe God - but I do, I believe in a God of power, of miracles.

'"I brought my son to Your disciples, but they could not cure him." Then Jesus rebuked the sickness, and the boy was healed at that very moment. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?" So, Jesus said to them, "Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; nothing will be impossible for you."' (Matthew 17)

The believer who has not yet moved a 'mountain', has not yet begun the real task of the ministry; Jesus rebuked the disciples for their unbelief in Matthew 17 and said, 'If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.' I challenge you to begin to act in the power and authority of your faith. So many times I have had to face the impossible and seen God move in power, and I challenge you to begin to do it yourself!

In Matthew 17, when Jesus - with Peter, James and John - came down from the Transfiguration, He found the other disciples at the bottom, unable to heal the boy possessed by an evil spirit. Jesus said two things: firstly, that this kind only comes out by prayer and fasting; then secondly, He rebuled His disciples' lack of faith, saying that if they had faith as small as a grain of mustard seed they could command this mountain to move. I challenge you to begin to act in the power and authority of your faith.
