Bill Winston (June-20-2022) Weekly Devotional: Faith in the Name, the Blood, and the Word of God
that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth and under the earth, (Philippians 2:10 TLB)
Faith in the Name, the Blood, and the Word of God
We have faith in the Name of Jesus. The Bible says, “that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in heaven and on earth…” (Philippians 2:10 TLB). That Name was used by Paul to cast out devils. In Acts 3:12 and 16, Peter said to the people who had witnessed the lame man being healed, “…why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?...his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong.” My point is that it is faith in the Name of Jesus that brings results.
Bill Winston (June-13-2022) Weekly Devotional: The Blessing is Received By Faith
So the LORD must wait for you to come to him so he can show you his love and compassion. For the LORD is a faithful God. Blessed are those who wait for his help. (Isaiah 30:18 NLT)
The Blessing Is Received by Faith
God is a God of love, and His desire is for you to be abundantly blessed. He wants you to have everything that belongs to you in His Word. The Blessing is designed to give you your inheritance and take back everything the enemy has stolen from you. The Blessing will fix whatever may be broken in your life, but for it to operate, faith is a requirement.
Bill Winston - Watch Sermon: Transforming Humanity to Divinity. In The Power of Love Dr. Bill Winston teaches how to walk in the power of God's abundant love. God commands every believer to obey the law of love which is written on our hearts when we are born again. To grow in faith we must grow in love because the two always work together.
Bill Winston - Watch Weekly Devotional: The Blessing Overrides the Curse. The Blessing was first given to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God transferred to them the same power and ability He used to create this earth so that they could continue the work of creation and make every place on the earth just like the garden of Eden. Eden was a copy of heaven.
Bill Winston Weekly Devotional - Climbing to the Top Takes Faith
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another. (Psalm 75:6–7)
Climbing to the Top Takes Faith
God wants you to live by your faith, not by someone else’s faith. This is an important issue in the Body of Christ. As I minister around the globe, it seems like faith is missing. I am talking about it’s missing among people who go to church, Christians. It seems like some Christians go to church because a relative goes there; or some people go just for entertainment…“Oh, they’ve got some good music down at that church!”
Bill Winston - Watch Sermon: Learn To Pray Effectively - Priority of Prayer. In the book of Acts the church made a global impact without modern marvels of communication or travel. How was this impact made? By travelling on the wings of prayer. When you pray you are joining forces with God and allowing Him to work. The believer who follows biblical rules and operates in the knowledge of their righteousness in Christ has a right to answered prayer and God's covenant promises!
