Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God

Chris Welch The Word is not a book.The Word comes as unstoppable force but often barely discernible,like the growth of grass through concrete.Or it comes clear as a bell but nearly incomprehensible.God said Let there be light , but even on the material level it's scientifically barely understood,though we live with it every day.Mary was told she was to have God's baby and as the method was not clear she gave the wisest of replies.And mostly it's what we have to do too."Be it unto me according to your Word"

The Life in the Melchizedek order post on my blog (have no computer to give a link)showed how I had received tha...t God was birthing a whole new level of light in the Body of Christ,actually that was Annie Miller in the 70s,see her visions books, but I began calling it 3rd level Christianity.This was a word of faith to me.It was Word to me. But my faith level was low, so seeing a need for Word in the UK I set up a video lending library which went nowhere.But to my very doorstep,before THEY even got their specific CALL came Rory and Wendy of God Channel. It was one of the oddest meetups in history,because none of us really knew what God was doing. I mumbled 3rd level stuff for an hour and they left, a bit puzzled themselves...See more
11 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Chris Welch What this shows is the Word is preeminent.The Word positions us.It was greater than my faith which had just come up with a video lending library....whereas before my eyes were the two God was using to open the first really barrier free Satt...ellite God channel into all the earth. But the Word that was in me is still GREATER than that ,and I was able to sow a seed in that utterly crazy Melchizedek order fashion (similar to Jesus at the well in John 4) where I shared about the 3rd Level. God channel so far is a One and Two level affair only.See more

11 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Chris Welch Also on my blog is a recording of the Father word I gave at 2008 Havant Conference.Peter Stott was packed out with insight on intimacy with the Father.I was that time I had no idea of its importance for the church.So,this to me, barely discernible Word, opened out and out ,to now thinking...exactly what sort of Christianity was I in before? But it seems we keep thinking that as we "see Light in His Light"
11 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Chris Welch In 2009 I delivered a song about Jesus moving the furniture in heaven back into its right places.I had a barely discernible notion that it was to do with God restoring His order and NOT MANS to the Church.But again had no idea as to the eno...rmity of the problem.But right on cue Jack Fortenberry sends me "Corinthian Elders" and we see the almost universal Pastor Pyramid. I never, never thought at the time it would all bring me into such conflict with the very church I gave the Word in. And I never dreamed I'd be writing a post on Peter Stott and others Apostolic Protectionism....because in terms of what exists in the UK,Havant is up there with what surely must be among the best churches. Yet again,in His light we see light, and again "the very light that was in us was in fact darkness".See more

Its a seed, a seed has the ability in itself to produce itself, but only when its planted in proper soil, proper season, and with proper moisture, not too much, but not too little.
10 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Chris Welch Soil is interesting.It's both where we find ourselves....a very unseed type environment...its brown and gooey, or yellow and flaky....but either way it's not kie the seed. But the soil is also our innerseedbed....our heart....which also begins very very dark!!!!!
10 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Marmee Janet Great discussion. An invitation to live into what I hear the Word speak in me, even if it seems wild and crazy at the time. Looking away unto Jesus...
6 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Chris Welch Marmee,that's an encouragement for me to say to everyone.....if your Christianity is predictable, and not as mad as building a boat(what's one of those) tens of years before anyone had ever heard of rain(what's that Noah), if it's not as ma...d as being told that without a man,you're going to have a baby through whom the whole of the world will be saved.....then your Christianity probably isn't God , but a kind of religious LEGO self-build. Only the BODY of CHRIST requires the FAITH of the VERY SON oF GOD to build it. The rest only requires IKEA and Argos!!!See more

5 hours ago · LikeUnlike · 1 personLoading....Nancy Gilmore What I hear you saying is it's one thing to speak a word of faith for yourself, and quite another to speak a word for someone else. The first comment being on the little children, young men stages of Christ's life in us, and the later being fathers of Christ's life AS us. The resistance against us comes with full force as fathers, because it involves others.

3 hours ago · LikeUnlike.Chris Welch Cindi is thatwhat you meant>>> or were youmeaning thedifference between theWord of Faith movement which is like Jacob during his faithing in speckled and striped sheep.......and later after he knew who he really was now after the encounter and name changeatPeniel? One is faith as adelusion of two< the other is the single Eye speakingfaith, seeing only One.
