Diminishing The Darkness By Lifting Up the Marvelous
Light Of Jesus Christ
-- by Tim Greenwood
we approach the holiday season much
thought is focused on the giving of gifts to family and friends.
And I don’t have a problem with that. But for Christians,
Christmas is ‘supposed’
to be Jesus’ birthday! What’s up with
giving to everyone else except - Jesus and His Kingdom?
We are to worship Him with our tithes and
offerings; however, we must give with a cheerful heart. In 2 Corinthians 9:6 the Bible says,
"But this I say: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he
who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he
purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful
In 2 Corinthians 9:10 the Bible says,
"Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and
multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your
righteousness....” When we give to God, the Bible refers to that as sowing
seed. When we sow, we reap, and the harvest is larger than the seed sown. The
unique thing about this is that God is the one who gives us the seed to sow.
The more we sow, the more we reap. The more we reap, the more we sow, and on and
on. I heard one man say it this way. We
keep shoveling to God and He keeps shoveling back. The only difference is, His
shovel is bigger than our shovel.
In Luke 6:38 Jesus
said "Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken
together, and running over will men give into your bosom. For with the same
measure that you use it will be measured back to you." The God who spoke the universes into
existence, doesn't need your two dollars and fifteen cents. What the Lord does
want, though, is your commitment to what He is committed to. And what He is
committed to is completing His ministry here on the Earth and furthering His
is exactly what Tim Greenwood Ministries, with the help of our financial
Partners, is doing, all year long. We
were actually able to reach and minister to hundreds of thousands of people
this year, personally, via the Internet and through various other media.
But with YOUR HELP
we know we could reach
farther and do more
to complete the ministry of Jesus before He
returns. Please help
us by making a generous year-end donation to Tim Greenwood Ministries and financially partnering with
TGM throughout 2010.

On The Word

Another excerpt from the book,
"Good Faith & Biblical
by Tim Greenwood
Beginning in Mark 11:22
(TGV), Jesus instructs: Have and use the same good faith as God, (Genesis
1:3,6,11,14,20,24,26). (In these
scriptures God made declarations speaking out loud that which was in His heart,
fully expecting what He said to be performed and fulfilled like a
contract. “Light BE! Firmament BE! Seas and dry earth BE! Plants
BE! Etc. In verse 26 He says, “Let’s
make man like us, with the same type of authority and dominion over everything
so far created.”)
in Mark 11:23 (TGV), For without a doubt, trust Me when I tell you, that
whosoever says, to any mountainous thing that may attempt to rise or rear up
against you or block your path like this mountain, "I command you to get
out of my way and to be slung like dung, out into the sea!" and says it
without withdrawing in his or her heart, but rather trusts in Good Faith, that
what was said will be performed and fulfilled like a contract, then it
Who-so-ever, (that's me! I
qualify for this!), shall SAY to this mountain (Anything that rises up in front
of you, attempting to impede your forward progress). Ephesians 6:12 points out that “this mountain” can refer to “spiritual
wickedness in high places,” which can include malicious spirit beings that
plot to superimpose themselves as mountains that rise up before
you. Mountains of sickness, disease,
pain, degeneration, calamity, storms of life, sin, demons, fear, - anything
that is included as part of the curse of the law, [Deuteronomy 28:16-50]. We, (every born-again believer), that has
been redeemed from the curse of the law - spiritually, mentally, emotionally,
physically and financially), are to SAY something to this mountain!
Talking TO God ABOUT the mountain is OK - but God says to
talk TO the mountain! God WILL NOT do
it FOR you. And He didn't say climb it,
dig through it or find your way around it!
Not knowing what the Word says is part of that “word problem.”
To speak to the mountain say: Get out of my path and go jump in
the lake! And doesn’t doubt in his
heart but will believe in good faith that the things that he says will come to
pass, then they WILL come to pass!
This is an absolute reality when YOU say what God (Father, Son or
Spirit) has already SAID as documented in the Bible. Remember, whatsoever He has said is a contract just waiting for
Just SAYING something is not enough! When you SAY something that you don't really believe in your
heart, could be construed as entering into a contract in bad faith. Good faith is only obtained by hearing of a
beneficial offer made in good faith by a person of known integrity.
I have spent time in the Valley of the Shadow of Death. I know how
deep it is, how long it is and how dark it is.
But, what IS a valley anyway?
It's just a low place between MOUNTAINS. You can't climb out - I tried.
The only way out is to MOVE the mountains! A valley without mountains is no longer a valley. And the only way to move those mountains is
by commanding them to move, in the authority of and in the name of JESUS!
in Mark 11:24: And it works the same way in prayer! What ever you ask when you
pray to God, trust in good faith that you receive what ever you ask, and
it too shall come to you in the same manner. (Pray the solution - and you will have
the solution. Pray the problem and you
will have the problem).
In verses 23 & 24 the word “mountain” occurs only once. The word “believe” occurs twice. The word “say occurs three times. But the word “YOU” occurs six times and is
implied four more times for a total of ten times! The emphasis is on YOU. YOU have to believe, YOU
have to say, YOU have to move that mountain!
It is up to YOU!
Whosoever can produce whatsoever through what they say in good
faith. Whosoever can have whatsoever
they desire through what they say in prayer.
But in good faith we must forgive - whosoever of their
whatsoever, (their breaches of contracts, trusts, confidence, etc.), before
Father God can forgive our whatsoever.
me ask you a question. How does one express
to God that he or she truly does “believe and doubt not” that what he or she
said will manifest? Not sure? If you are at a major football game, and your
team suddenly gets the ball and begins to run for the goal line with almost no
opposition, how would you express your belief that that goal was already on the
scoreboard? Yes! You jump to your feet, yell, cheer and shout
in celebration! Even before the goal is
scored! Because you believe and doubt
You say what God has already said (in good
faith) in the Name of Jesus, and exercise your God given authority and dominion
by signing the contract. And then, immediately
begin praising, thanking God and celebrating the victory, even before
the victory manifests. This is the
framework for using the shield of faith found in Ephesians 6:16. The moment that the contract is signed, your
celebration should begin, because the fruit of that good faith contract is as
good as yours already!
