Nothing shall be made available to you on the earth, until the spirit realm sees your faith. Faith opens you up to the spirit realm. Anytime the spirit realm sees your faith, it becomes your turn. Faith is the release of the force of eternity. When eternity collides with time space ,time and matter evaporates. Faith is putting your trust in God’s word above your reasoning. Galatians 3:5.
