Fight the Good Fight of Faith, Part 1

Fighting the good fight is a daily walk. It begins with us speaking God’s Word. We must learn to speak His Word. When situations arise, and we don’t have time to think about it, the Word planted on the inside will come out. Don’t let circumstances dictate your level of faith! Stand in what you know. Stand in your God call! It’s not only fighting the fight, it’s also how we fight. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for Sept. 8, 2019.

1 Timothy 6:12 NIV
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:

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. Mark 11:23

What We Believe:

We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.

Faith Confession:

We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.

What Is Under Your Feet? Part 2

What’s under our feet? Everything that comes from the kingdom of darkness. Hebrews 1:8 says, “Every name that is named.” We are called to name the names  of the things that should be under our feet. Name them, because they should be under your feet. Those things include sickness, disease, poverty, lack, mental illness, violence, and more.

When we confess God’s Word on a daily basis, as symptoms of sickness or disease arise, we already have the victory. Because we have been confessing the Word of the Living God, our faith will have grown to the point where we can say, “You get under my feet! You are under my feet! I am seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. There is no cancer in those heavenly places; there is no compromised immune system there; there is no sugar diabetes in those heavenly places; there is no heart disease there. I am the body of Christ.” We must learn to speak the Word of the Living God!

If you don’t remember anything else, remember that we are seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, far above all powers and principalities, and every name in this world and the one to come! Glory to God! God has put all things under His feet. There is no sickness in those heavenly places!

For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for Sept. 1, 2019.

Ephesians 2:5–6 NKJV
But God,… even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus

Ephesians 1:22–23 NKJV
22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

Hebrews 2:6–8 NKJV
But one testified in a certain place, saying:

“What is man that You are mindful of him,
Or the son of man that You take care of him?
You have made him a little lower than the angels;
You have crowned him with glory and honor,
And set him over the works of Your hands.
You have put all things in subjection under his feet.”

What Is Under Your Feet? Part 1

What circumstance has imprisoned you? Don’t you know, it’s under your feet! We are seated in heavenly places. God the Father raised Jesus Christ from the dead and gave Him a name above all names. Jesus is the head of His body, the Church. (This does not refer to the physical building we are familiar with.) We the believers are the Church, because the Spirit of the Living God lives in us. Jesus is the head, and God has put all things under His feet. Since Jesus is the head, and we are His body, what do we find under our feet? God the Father has given Jesus all authority, and we are seated in heavenly places in heaven. So  guess what is under our feet? All things! It’s not automatic. We’ve got to have faith, confidence in the Word of God. When we take time to grow our faith, and believe that we have what we say, the Word works for us as it did for Jesus. When something is under your feet, you have mastery for it. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on August 25, 2019. Be sure to come back next week for Part 2.

You Have Received an Inheritance!

We have received an inheritance! It’s not just for a specific few people; it’s not for the spiritually elite. What is the inheritance? It’s restoring to us the place of fellowship that Adam first had with God. When we understand what was stolen from us, we are no longer satisfied with the modified version. We have been wrongly taught to believe that when Jesus delivered us from the sin nature, that was all. Yet, He restored the fellowship with God, like Adam had in the garden, where they walked and talked together. How many times do we forfeit fellowship with God? As we draw near to God, His Word becomes easier for us to absorb. When we realize who we are in the fullness of redemption, satan can’t hold us in bondage. Nothing can. We gain that maturity as we plant the Word seed in our spirit, and transition from head knowledge to revelation knowledge, and so have our minds transformed. That is when we are able to activate the terms of our inheritance. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on August 18, 2019, and be blessed!

Ephesians 1:11 AMP
In Him also we have received an inheritance [a destiny—we were claimed by God as His own], having been predestined (chosen, appointed beforehand) according to the purpose of Him who works everything in agreement with the counsel and design of His will.

Colossians 1:12–14 AMP
12 Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints (God’s people) in the Light. For He has rescued us and has drawn us to Himself from the dominion of darkness, and has transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption [because of His sacrifice, resulting in] the forgiveness of our sins [and the cancellation of sins’ penalty].

Why is it important that we change the default setting of our minds? What is the default setting of our mind? It is the thought operation system that supplies the energy for our lives. Our minds are very important. We could say that our minds are the grid that supplies automatic thought energy. Those things we find that we do automatically emanate from the thought grid, because they are defaults. What we give our energy and attention to will develop in our lives. It will direct our pathway. Where we go, our mind follows. In 2 Corinthians 10:4, we are told to pull down strongholds. What are strongholds? They are fortified places erected in our minds. What are some of those fortified places that the enemy of our souls uses to take advantage of us? Things like memories and idols of our heart. This message shows how the defaults are set in place and what we must do to pull down such strongholds. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on August 11, 2019, and be blessed!

Proverbs 23:7 NKJV
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
“Eat and drink!” he says to you,
But his heart is not with you.

Romans 12:2 NKJV
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

2 Corinthians 10:3–5 NKJV
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

Hebrews 12:14–17 NKJV
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled; lest there be any fornicator or profane person like Esau, who for one morsel of food sold his birthright. For you know that afterward, when he wanted to inherit the blessing, he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought it diligently with tears.

There are many things we can change today: hair, clothes, car, career, etc., etc. But all of these physical changes don’t change who we are on the inside. The default mind setting will come back. We can spend years in psychiatry, but it doesn’t have the ability of the Word of the Living God. They are counseling, yet their words can’t get into our spirits to transform us. Only the Word of the Living God can do that. We can the Word of God as medicine daily, as often as needed. Our faith will rise in this way. That faith will overflow to our words. And so our minds and our mouths are being redeemed.

What is entering into God’s rest today? That land is fear-free—where we are not anxious, not overwhelmed, but able to stand, because we are standing in the strength and authority of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. We can’t do that unless our minds have been renewed by the Word of the Living God. Nothing we change is as powerful as a changed mind.

How do we get our default mind setting? It’s generational, environmental, associational, and educational. All of these tributaries flow into us to create a mindset. These thoughts form ideas. These ideas flowing together form a mindset. Such mindsets often say, You’re no good. You’re never gonna amount to anything. (And so on.) Words have power. When we understand this, we learn to confess the Word of the Living God. We say instead, Lord, thank you that I am the head and not the tail. Thank you that You have sent Your Word and Your Word has healed me and delivered me from all destructions. I am the seed of Abraham. I am redeemed! (And so on.) We counter what has gone forth previously, with the Word of God, and break the mindset. It doesn’t happen all at once.  The moment we cross over, saying, Jesus, come into my life. Be my Lord and Savior. Lead me in paths of righteousness for Your Name’s sake. At that moment our spirit is reborn. But our minds are the same, because they were not reborn. Our body was not reborn either. As we begin to eat the Word of the Living God, we come to the knowledge that we are to consider our bodies dead to sin, and the sin nature. Then we come to the understanding that we must renew our minds. That old mindset keeps us doing the things we don’t want to do. It keeps us double-minded. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on July 28, 2019, and be blessed!

Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
