Lion of Judah Worship Center

Focus Faith

When you pray, believe that you receive! We can’t believe that we receive when we go to God in hope. We are hoping. Without faith, it’s impossible to please God. Faith is the substance of those things hoped for. “Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” (Mark 11:24 NKJV) When we come into the land where we are focused on the Word of the living God, we focus on being pleasing and acceptable in His sight. We are focused on receiving the promises of God. He didn’t write them just for the words to remain on the book. His Words are healing and health to all who put their trust in Him. We are to live daily by our faith in Jesus. We don’t go to God talking about the problem. We go to God based on His Word to receive the medicine. He already knows the symptoms. “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask anything according to His will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” (1 John 5:14–15)  For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for December 29, 2019.

Mark 11:24 NKJV
Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

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.

Mountain Moving Faith

Sounds like an action-packed movie. While it’s not a movie, it is action packed. It is the ability God has bestowed upon us to reclaim our heritage. He wants us to enjoy our new-found freedom. God wants us to be the head, not the tail. It is based upon our faith level, and our desire to help others. What are the characteristics of being full of faith? Knowing the way; has a firm standing; not moved back and forth;  has complete confidence and trust in God; is not swayed from the truth. Faith is what transforms hope into reality. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for October 13, 2019.

Matthew 21:21 NIV
Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.”

Mark 11:23 NKJV
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.

Mustard Seed Faith

Faith is a substance. Substance is three-dimensional. God’s Word in Mark 11:24 says, “When you pray, believe.” We want to understand the value faith has in our walk as believers. Faith is believing God, taking God at His Word, rather than looking at circumstances. Jesus looks for our level of faith. He said that faith as small as a mustard seed will move mountains. Do you have any mountains in your life? A mountain is whatever is stopping you from accomplishing what God has said for you. How does that mustard seed reproduce? It must be placed in a medium. That medium is a Spirit-filled, born-again believer. When we have stored the Word of God inside, we keep our spirits filled with faith. In order for faith to ignite and produce results, it must be planted in our spirits. How do we plant the faith seed? Meditate in God’s Word day and night, then you will make your way prosperous and have good results. (Joshua 1:8) For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for October 6, 2019.

Matthew 17:20 NIV
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, 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.”

Fight the Good Fight of Faith, Part 4

Recognizing Mind Blockades

Faith is a spiritual law. God is a faith God. Everything we receive from God, we receive by faith. Two mind blockades prevent us from fighting the good fight of faith. We need to know these things, because they will keep us from being effective in our faith walk. The first is a wandering mind. If we admit it, most of us have a wandering mind—our mind loses track when someone is talking or we are listening to a sermon, for example. Our minds have left the moment. That inability to stay focused keeps us from fighting the good fight of faith, which requires focus on God’s Word. The second roadblock, a wondering mind, can take us out of belief. Wondering leaves a person in indecision, which causes confusion. Wondering, indecision, and confusion prevent a person from receiving from God, by faith, the answer to prayer or need. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for Sept. 29, 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.

Ecclesiastes 5:1 KJV
Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.

Mark 11:23–24 KJV
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. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Fight the Good Fight of Faith, Part 3

When we fight the good fight of faith, we must know what belongs to us. We must have confidence in what is available to us through the finished works of Jesus. When we fight the good fight of faith, we are standing on the Word of the living God. We are fighting against situations, circumstances, against the rulers of darkness in this world. The good fight of faith we are fighting is to receive the manifestations of promises in our lives. What must we do to fight the good fight of faith? We must stay filled with the love of God and control our thoughts. Until we learn to listen to the Spirit of the Living God, and be obedient, we will never be fully successful in fighting the good fight of faith. For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for Sept. 22, 2019.

1 Timothy 6:12 NIV

Fight the Good Fight of Faith, Part 2

In order to fight the good fight of faith, according to God’s principles, we have to have energy. It has a huge impact on our motivation to do things. Fearful thoughts can rob us of the energy to hold fast. When the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, if we don’t lift up the shield of faith to quench fearful, doubtful thoughts, they drain our energy and lessen our motivation. God, by His Spirit is saying to us this day, to hold onto your faith, to fight the good fight of faith. We fight the good fight of faith with the Word of God. We have to be willing. God is not going to  fight the good fight of faith for us. Neither are the angels. We have got to get engaged. These messages are about fighting the good fight of faith, because we have to fight to keep the faith level that we have planted in our hearts. When God says to us to  fight the good fight of faith, He is not telling us to stand alone. He is with us. His Spirit abides in us! For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy for Sept. 15, 2019.

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.
