Greetings,

When I and I have faith in Jah, nothing is impossible. Whatever needs I and I have will be fulfulled. Any part of ourselves that we want to change will be changed through faith.

Christ taught I and I the power of faith. He showed I and I that certain things may be impossible for man, but nothing is impossible to Jah. So if our trust and faith is in Jah, then there are no limits to righteousness.

One problem what causes people to not increase their faith, is their expectation. People want to see a sign or proof, before they have faith, this is a great limit to faith. First, I and I must develop and increase our faith, with no evidence. Because faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen.

When I and I faith is developed, then the results and proof of our faith will come. And people who do this will see great results from their faith.

Too many people put limits on theirselves, saying that they can't do this or that, or they talk of things being impossible. I don't regard impossible, because I know if I regard it, then impossible will be a reality. But if my faith is that nothing is impossible, then that will be true and the reality.

When I need something, I ask Jah for it. And sometimes I don't even ask, I just trust in Jah, because I know that Jah knows all my thoughts. Burning spear says in one song

-------------------------
I need a little help, but it can be embarassment
I said I need a little help, but it can be embarassment
Call on Jah, Call on Jah
Jah never say no, Jah never say no
-------------------------

I Itinually increase I faith in Jah, because I know that Jah is the source and solution of all things. I have since seen so much evidence of I faith, that I would be a fool to deny it. And if something that I believe doesn't come, then I see it as a lack of faith. And so I work to increase I faith higher.


Here is another Reasoning

Faith Strength

You speak truth about faith in your post Ark I. As I&I become more conscious then the faith begins to grow and this help I&I consciousness to get stronger. This is what building faith is and you get to new heights in your oneness with Jah. It untangles you from Babylon and makes your thinking knot with Jah so you are with HIM all the time. And words we use to describe faith are like this - the seed, the vine - they start small are nurtured and grow (in the same way we come to know Jah).

Itís the world of Babylon that seeks evidence - money, contracts, proof in science or law, qualifications. Itís the opposite of Divine law, seeking Jah perfection, changing and knowing Jah and so increasing your faith.
Give thanks and pray for Jah guidance

Blessed Love, Jah Rasta Far I,

Humbly INI call upon all the resources that Jah-creator manifested for INI. INI not separate, only I separate I from INI.

INI Jah for even just moments in eternal timeless (now-then-when) Creation so clear, so perfect because Jah made PERFECTION, inclduing perfection and purity INI.

WHAT WOULD Jah do ? What INI is not DIVIDED.

Beloved community INI not victims, not slaves not downpressed. ONESSS is the light of purity that is ominpresent eternal and inside of ini. With the WISDOM of SPIRIT, make I bodily, including the mind, temples. Clean quiet NATURAL place for INI to dwell. ORGANICALLY not synthectcally.

That be INI meditation and once that is INI, NO fear, embarassement, apologies or sorrowful.


Oh Jah how majestic is INI name through all CREATION.

When you drink water remember its source...JAH RASTA FAR I

Ark I,

You speak the truth about faith. InI know that Jah is in control of everything. However, years of mental suffering and the influence of Babylon has made I forget this. It does make I sad that I need a sign in order to have faith.

So, how does I develop faith?

In the Bible, Jesus says "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountatin, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you" (Matthew 17:20).

Jesus says how to develop faith: "Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by PRAYER and FASTING" (Matthew 17:21).

I am new to the rastafarian beliefs, but was raised in a Christian background. Is this the basis of developing faith for I?

Jah Guide,
Matthew

Greetings to the Community of JAHJAHchildren...

Jesus told we that faith is to achieve by fasting and prayers only..
Jesus always talked in parabels...A seed just grows,ya know,by just living its way of living how it is mented to be for the seed.Even in circumstances with rocky bottom.The seed can grow only if it is aware itself{sounds strange with a seed..}that it CAN grow.Likewise with human and Spirit..Get to know thyself and your inner Spirit,and offer it unto JAH..ask Him fe guidance..JAH never fails InI

Prayers is needed fe become in contact with JAH,fe become more spiritual developed.To reach that higher heights ,ye know,those Spiritual heights..
InI Spirit on its turn,needs a clean and healthy body,fe get the best condition out of it..That is what the fasting part is all about.
InI body is InI own Holy Temple..haffe keep it clean,if possible daily,but remember InI is human...Just because we are human,we love to do things that harms ourselves..kinda stupid,but it happens.
That where the concious part haffe comes in,en tek control over those.Selfawareness is a must..haffe get known thyself completely,otherwise one keeps on bouncing between different modes,and that,me fellow RasTafari idren an sistren will bring forth insecurity and low selfesteem and all kind a such weakness of the Spirit..and that was not what you wanted to reach eeeh,Matthew..

The fasting stems from the old ancient traditions,accordings to the laws of Jah,given by Him unto Moses.Ya can read those in the Books of Moses

Nah forget Selassie I,and not Jesus only,told we the same.and H.I.M. was an excellent example concerning H.I.M. s daily prayers and periodes of fasting..I came to overstand that there were periods of about 6 month in a row,that H.I.M. Selassie I Earthrightfullruler would fast evry day again for the period of 12 hours...now that is an example fe the world InI would say...HIM a the only one with the strenght of The Lion....SELASSIE I RASTAFARI

In I humble sight iman think that the basis of gaining/increasing ya faith is based upon purity,honesty,and love,all upright...Always remember JAh,and His wonderfull works and the thing He doeth for InI each an evry day again...Haffe give thx and praises always evry day again,even when times a rough and not nice..inna the morning,inna the evening..whenever ya want to,and for the littlest things also...

These kinda things made I heart and Spirit opened for the Love that JAh had for InI already all that time,only me didnt hear His callin...distracted by the Babylonian Roman Empire,through their brainwashed educations and dem illusions them a create evry second again....Pack a bullshit,InI know by know.HAHAHAHA...No water cyan put out natty s fire,that why them a go get burned....Babylonwhoredom is falling!!!!!!!

Through the authority of H.I.M. all wickedness shall be wiped out and cleansed foreyva..seeen..


Have faith unconditionally thx& praises

Blessed greetings,
ijah

What Ijah is saying is true. I will add some things. Through meditation and prayer, I and I build up our relationship with Jah. The better our relationship with Jah is, the more I and I will see from Jah.

To build up Faith, I and I need to resist and cast away doubt. So when I and I have Faith in something, I and I should resist the urge to doubt that it will happen. It can be hard to do this because we have been raised with doubt and lack of Faith. So in the beginning, the I might find yourself doubting more than having Faith. But as times goes on, and I and I Itinue to resist doubt, doubt will flee away and there will be much more Faith.

To resist doubt, I and I need to resist and stop the thought as it starts to rise. The sooner I and I resist, the closer I and I come to casting away doubts entirely. This is a process over time. Fasting builds up discipline in our mind, and cleans I and I vessel. This discipline to resist hunger, builds up I and I mental discipline in general. I and I can learn to resist hunger when necessary, resist sleep when necessary, and resist other things also.

In time, the I will gain more control over your own self, and be able to resist doubt in many situations, and eventually, if the I Faith is strong enough, the I will resist doubt in all situations. And the more the I resist doubt and build up Faith, the more evidence the I will see from Jah.

Also, when hard times come, I and I must not cast away Faith. Those are the times when Faith must be strongest, because only Jah can help I and I out of our troubles. People often lose their Faith when a little tribulation comes. But I and I are in Revelation time, the time of tribulation, so if I and I give up because of small tribulation, what will happen when the larger tribulation comes. I and I can look at tribulation as a result of our own lack of faith, and at the same time, a test to give I and I the opportunity to build up Faith.

When good times come, I and I must remember not to lose our Faith. I and I should give thanks to Jah for every single good thing that happens, no matter how small. All goodness comes from Jah, and Jah is worthy to be praised. Sometimes people can get swell headed in good times, and forget about Jah, these are the times where Jah will let I and I take care of our own self. Because Jah allows us to do what we choose, so if we choose to trust in our own vanity, instead of trusting in Jah, then Jah will let us see what our vanity can accomplish. And we will see that it is just vanity, and has no accomplishment.

The first thing to trod towards Faith is to choose Faith.

"When I and I have faith in JAH, nothing is impossible."
That first line could have been the end of the discussion.
