Looking Unto Jesus
Looking unto Jesus means fixing our eyes, our attention, on Jesus. In other words, the circumstance we are in hasn’t changed. In fact, it often gets worse. When we begin to stand on one of the promises of God, the turmoil, the turbulence, and the chaos increase. The chaos attempts to put our attention on the situation rather than on Jesus. Jesus is not only the author of our faith, He is the finisher. The finisher completes the job. It begins and ends in Him. Keep your focus on Jesus no matter what happens. Speak His Word in each circumstance, with confidence. Hebrews 11 precedes this command in Hebrews 12:2. Those named in chapter 11 give examples of faith in action. It is only by faith in the all-powerful Christ that we can be superior to circumstances and victorious over all the evil forces that seek to destroy us. Look unto Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith! For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on May 17, 2020.
Key Scripture Hebrews 12:2 MEV
Let us look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

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.
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.”
