PROPHETIC MESSAGE: TO HIM WHO OVERCOMES
When God gives us a promise we must hold onto that promise in obedience and patiently wait out the fulfillment of it. Sometimes we won't see it straight away or we may not have evidence of it in our lifetime (Heb 11:39).
Numerous times in scripture Jesus rebukes the disciples for their "little faith". (Matt 6:30, Matt 8:26, Matt 14:31, Matt 16:8, Luke 12:28).
This word 'oligopistos' comes from the root word 'oligos' which can also be translated 'brief, short or puny in duration' (See strongs dictionary).
Our faith therefore must not be short, brief or puny but rather stand the test of time. God is not a microwave God so don't give up or abort the baby. If He has entrusted you to believe and contend for something, keep going!
Therefore we must believe what God says even if it doesn't make sense (like Noah, Abraham, Moses, Rahab, Ruth etc.)
REV 2:17 (NIV84)
He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To HIM WHO OVERCOMES, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give Him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it. (Emphasis added).
1 Peter 5:10 (NIV)
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
