Receiving The Impartation Of The Spirit Of Faith!
And we having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak (2 Corinthians 4:13).
Faith is the master key to a world of unlimited breakthroughs. This is because our faith is what engenders our exploits on earth. Concerning the heroes of faith, the Bible says:
And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets: Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions. …And these all, having obtained a good report through faith… (Hebrews 11:32-33, 39).
This implies that faith is the foundation for all good reports and the maker of Kingdom stars. Furthermore, faith can be categorized into the following: A Measure, Little, Great and Supernatural faith (Romans 12:3; Matthew 8:23-26; 2 Corinthians 4:13; Matthew 15:12-21).
We can grow our faith from “A Measure” to “Little” and then to “Great” faith by engaging revelations from scriptures, but Supernatural Faith is only accessible by impartation. This is because supernatural faith is a product of the impartation of the Spirit of Faith. In other words, we can’t study our way to supernatural faith; we can only be “imparted” by a carrier.
Furthermore, the Spirit of faith enhances our capacity to believe whatsoever God says He would do in our lives. This, in turn, advances our destinies because we are only empowered to become whatever we believe. That is what makes “Supernatural Faith” or the impartation of the Spirit of faith the ultimate in the school of faith (2 Corinthians 4:13; Daniel 3:28; John 1:12; Luke 1:45).
But, what is Impartation?
Impartation is simply the tangible transmission of divine virtue from an anointed vessel to others. The Bible says:
And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses(Deuteronomy 34:9).
It is also the transmission of spiritual gifts from an anointed vessel to others. Remember, Apostle Paul said in his letter to the Church in Rome:
For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established(Romans 1:11).
Impartation is the transmission of divine virtue into the situations of men. It is written:
And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them (Acts 19:11-12).
However, it is important to know that transferable virtues reside solely with the Apostles and Prophets because they belong to the high priestly ministry. For instance, it was said of Jesus, our High Priest:
And when the men of that place had knowledge of him, they sent out into all that country round about, and brought unto him all that were diseased; And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole (Matthew 14:35-36; see also Luke 6:19; Psalms 133:2).
It is also written: And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone (Ephesians 2:20).
That means Apostles and Prophets belong to the same priestly ministry as Jesus and as such, they also possess transferable virtues for individuals, who desire same. For instance, in the account of Elijah and Elisha, we discover that Elisha passionately coveted the Spirit at work in Elijah and was imparted with it. As a result, Elisha manifested twice the number of Elijah’s miracles (2 Kings 2:9-15; Jude 1:3).
This means that the Spirit of faith moves from one generation to another via the transference of spirit and impartation, and it is available to everyone who desires it.
How, then, do we receive the Impartation of the Spirit of Faith?
First, it is important to know that God, Himself, is the umpire over the mystery of impartation and the transference of spirits that are upon His anointed vessels. As it is written:
And the Lord said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with thee. And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone (Numbers 11:16-17, 24-25)
This implies that Godalone determines who receives the transference of Spirits. As such, we must align ourselves according to His terms in order to benefit from same.
Let’s examine the covenant terms that guarantee our access to the impartation of the Spirit of Faith.
We must identify a carrier: It is common knowledge that people only give what they have. That means we cannot receive the Spirit of faith from someone who does not have it (Matthew 25:9; Acts 3:6).
Receive the person and ministry of the carrier: The Bible says:
He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward…
 (Matthew 10:41; see also 2 Chronicles 20:20).
Crave for what he carries: From scriptures, we discover that every release of God’s Spirit answers to a craving, a thirst and a panting. In other words, it takes desperation to encounter impartation. Therefore, only those with a genuine crave get it. As it is written:
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified (John 7:37-39; see also Isaiah 44:3; Psalms 63:1-2).
We must honour the carrier in our hearts: We cannot partake of the virtue of the Prophet we do not honour in our hearts. Remember the Bible says:
Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured
 (Proverbs 27:18; 2 Kings 3:11).
Unfortunately, this is a missing link in the present generation, where people lack honour for their God-sent Prophets and this has impeded access to the virtues they carry (Ephesians 4:11-13; Matthew 13:57-58).
The Sonship connection: Apostles and Prophets are ordained spiritual fathers to whom they are sent. For instance, when Elisha saw the chariot of fire that came from heaven to pick Elijah, he said, “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof….” In Bible history, Elisha was the biological son of Shaphat, but he found a father in Elijah and partook of his unction (2 Kings 2:12; see also 1 Kings 19:19, 2 Kings 6:21; Matthew 10:41; Acts 24:14).
Thus, just as every child shares the Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) of his/her father, every son/daughter of a Prophet is also entitled to the spiritual DNA of same. This is because every living thing always produces after its kind (Genesis 1:24-25).
Furthermore, the Bible says: A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just (Proverbs 13:22; see also Genesis 1:24-25).
That means just as inheritances are transferred from fathers to children naturally, virtues are also transmitted from prophets to spiritual sons and daughters. However, until we establish a sonship connection with them, we cannot partake of the virtue upon their lives. Therefore, we must become bona fide members of a spiritual family to partake of the unction therein and produce their kind of results. Remember, being close to a family does not qualify one for an inheritance; it is being a member that does. That is what makes the sonship connection the master key to automatic impartation of the Spirit of Faith (2 Samuel 21:16-19).
God is restoring the mystery of spiritual fatherhood and sonship tie to the body of Christ, today. I pray that your own place will not be lost! (Malachi 4:5-6).
As we all know, every giant is born of a giant. Similarly, every spiritual giant has a spiritual giant for a father. Therefore, just as an elephant does not struggle to be big but exhibits it size naturally, I see you producing results after your giant spiritual parents, in Jesus’ name!
In conclusion, it is important to know that the mantle is one of the channels through which the Spirit of Faith is transmitted as we saw in the account of Aaron the Prophet. It is written:
It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments (Psalms 133:2).
This means that Prophets carry overflowing anointing and their garments are channels through which we can partake of same, for the rise of the giant in us. That is why God is restoring the ministry of Apostles and Prophets across the nations of the earth today (Ephesians 2:20; Hebrews 3:1-4). It is my prayer that you will locate your God-sent prophet on time, establish a sonship tie with him/her and be imparted with the Spirit of Faith at work in him/her to produce their kind of exploits! Remain every blessed!
Jesus is Lord!
  • I decree the giant in you to come alive today!
  • Receive a fresh impartation of the Spirit of Faith on your life!
  • By the impartation of the Spirit of Faith, every disease ravaging your body is destroyed!
  • That evil spirit tormenting you destiny is destroyed today!
  • Every stagnation in your business and career ends today!
