Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substantiating of things hoped for, the conviction of things (a completed thing) not seen.
Rom 1:20 — for from the world’s creation the invisible things of him are perceived, being apprehended by the mind through the things that are made (a finished product), both his eternal power and divinity, — so as to render them inexcusable.
Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship (a finished product), having been created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God has before prepared that we should walk in them.
Heb 11:3 By faith we understand that time itself was framed by a command of God, so that the things which are seen were not made ( become; perfect tense) of things which are visible.
Re 16:17 And the seventh messenger did pour out his vial to the air, and there came forth a great voice from the sanctuary of the heaven, from the throne, saying, ‘It hath come (become; perfect tense)!’
Re 21:6 and He said to me, ‘It hath been done! (become; perfect tense) I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End; I, to him who is thirsting, will give of the fountain of the water of the life freely;
The brilliant entrepreneur Tim Ferris utilizes the DSSS method for rapid learning.
His book, the “Four Hour Work Week” is simply astounding.
I recommend it as a must read for all church leaders.
My time is brief today, so let’s begin.
In the case of faith, let us apply the DSSS method for rapid learning.
- Faith is not belief. Faith are the invisible, finished and completed products which God has in heavenly realms and which He desires to manifest in earthly places.
- Faith are the things which have already become to God.
- Faith are God’s realities.
- Belief is the process used to manifest these invisible products.
So what is DSSS?
Take something large and make it into smaller pieces.
Simplify by eliminating all the unimportant and leaving the essential.
Identify the key qualities characteristics of the process to master.
In faith it is to manifest the invisible.
What elements appear essential to produce results?
Focus on the outcome that you are attempting to achieve.
What is my focus? It is to manifest the invisible!
Is my mind renewed in order to manifest the invisible?
Am I plagued with doubt and unbelief?
Tim uses the Pareto Principle
“The Pareto principle (also known as the 80–20 rule, the law of the vital few, and the principle of factor sparsity) states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes” Wikipedia
Twenty percent of our activities produce eighty percent of our results.
What are the essential activities which will produce the results of faith?
Where am I wasting effort in fruitless activities?
Where am I wasting time by the repetitive activities of doubt and unbelief?
What if I did things backwards or in the opposite order?
What if I started with the completed products in heavenly places and work from there to manifest them on earth?
What steps would I use?
Accountability to produce results and setting deadlines with God for the results.
I make myself accountable to deliver the finished product of faith
Can I set deadlines with God for the manifestation?
