Single Focus Faith

Sunday November 12, 2017

Apostle Dale Armstrong read from Matthew 9:26. We need to be single minded or focused. Popularity is not a revival. This issue became men and women. What is not popular is to not talk about being civil and about honor. Jesus was not wrong because people didn’t like him. Jesus was not right because He was popular. Apostle Dale asked, “What are you going to do if you are the only Christian Left? Would you compromise what you believe?” Sometimes love says no. Sometimes love doesn’t listen. Sometimes love doesn’t tolerate. Never be led by your needs. Don’t let needs dictate your direction. Matthew 9:29, “According to your faith let it be to you”. Single focus faith. Agree with God and not your opinions. We have to look at our lives. Determine if you want change or do you want to tolerate things? ” Dale mentioned that in Matthew 9:27, the blind had opportunity to become offended and not to follow Jesus. Dale read from Matthew 15:22 and referenced Ephesians 3. Apostle Dale talks about how with childbirth the mother just doesn’t give up because, she’s got a baby to deliver.  Sometimes love doesn’t listen. Sometimes love doesn’t tolerate. Sometimes love doesn’t listen, Matthew 15:23. God loved this woman but, did not answer her. God does not talk to anyone when they are in unbelief. Matthew 15:25, we have to learn how to worship Him. Worship Him not to get healed, or to get a job, or to fix your marriage. Worship Him, because you love Him. Even after the Lord called the woman a dog, she still worshiped Him. God is trying to get her single focus. Not begging, crying, or hoping. God wanted the woman to have single focus faith that her child was not going to die. When people go to Jesus for help. Jesus changes them so that they can help themselves. Hebrews 11:6, pleasing God. Get into agreement with God, because He likes being in agreement with you. Without faith it is impossible to please Him. Dale shared a testimony of the faith he saw in two boys that had just gotten saved. That was more pleasing to him, then seeing Brother Copeland preach. Apostle Dale mentions about how he wears glasses and haven’t been healed because he has not focused it. If glasses had not been invented, he would then focus on being healed so that he didn’t have to wear glasses. Dale mentioned that he wears the glasses because, it is the easy way out. Mark 11:24.
