God has been doing awesome things here. So many open doors and favor. We are so excited to be His co-laborers.
Hebrews 11:1 NOW FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
The Lord has really been speaking to us in this area. Faith is Now. â€œNOW FAITHâ€ is the substance. You know many believers believe and stand and pray and hope that one day they will receive their healing, one day they will get their financial breakthrough, one day this or that will happen. But this scripture clearly tells us that â€œNOW FAITHâ€ is the substance of what you are hoping for. That means if you have â€œNOW FAITHâ€ or in other words, believe that what you are hoping for is now (and not tomorrow or next week) then that is the very substance of what you are hoping for. A substance is something you can see, taste, touch, smell, feel, hear â€“ it can be grasped with your five senses.
James 2:14-18 Tells us that â€œFaith without works is deadâ€. So we see here that you canâ€™t just say â€œLord Iâ€™m believing you for my family to be savedâ€ and then not do anything about it. â€œLord, Iâ€™m believing you for a better jobâ€ but then not go and apply for jobs. You see, faith always has a corresponding action.
Religion says, Iâ€™ll just pray only, relationship says I will pray AND do. Because when you do things out of your relationship with God, you have compassion. And compassion always has an action. Jesus while in His earthly ministry was always â€œmoved with compassionâ€.
So I (Victoria) got to preach this sermon this past Sunday in Maui as Chris was on the island Lanai, doing a 3-day revival. I had this message stirring on my heart. The very same day, the Lord answered my prayer. We have been believing for a place here in Hawaii. We have felt the Lord speaking to us for years about basing ourselves out of the Hawaiian Islands â€“ that He was going to do something amazing through us here. I found this cottage on craigslist that was everything we wanted and an excellent price. The lady ended up renting it to another couple. I was so discouraged. The Lord had me preach this message 2 days after that happened. The very same day I preached it, the lady called me back and said that the couple suddenly had to move back to the mainland and that if we were still interested that we could rent it. The Lord responded to this message I preached and answered my prayer that same day! Not only was the cottage an amazing price for Hawaii, but every other place I looked at was a lot more money and really a â€œdumpâ€. It even came fully furnished and is on 8 acres of land with fruit trees for us to pick anytime (you know how I love to eat healthy). He is sooooo faithful! We are so excited about all He is doing here!!! (CHECKOUT PICS AT THE BOTTOM)
So we hit the ground running here in Maui and across the Hawaiian Islands one month ago. So far we have been able to do revivals and/or soul winning training, as well as street evangelism, in 11 churches, and see 416 salvations for Christ! However, we are definitely believing for a supernatural increase in the harvest as we contend for revival here. Please continue to pray for our efforts as well as support as the Lord leads.
