But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. People who merely listen to laws from God don’t have God’s approval. Rather, people who do what those laws demand will have God’s approval.
James 1:22, Romans 2:13
(NOW) Faith makes us sure of what we hope for and gives us proof of what we cannot see.
It was their faith that made our ancestors pleasing to God.
Because of our faith, we know that the world was made at God’s command. We also know that what can be seen was made out of what cannot be seen.
NOW is the TIME to Worship God and the HOUR is for those who Worship DO so in spirit and in truth for the LORD seeks to live in hearts that seek to DO so NOW. We are each born and we die and whatever we DO in thought, word or deed either give glory to our Father in heaven or not. It’s as simple as that. If we love God, we do whatever He says. Again, it’s a simple as a child seeking to please their father who they deeply love.
Jesus told us that is this world we will have many trials and tribulations be to not be afraid but to be EN-Couraged for He has overcome the world! He has already given us everything we need that pertains to REAL Life and Godliness through Knowing Him as Lord and Savior!
It is the Lamb’s Book of Life and Jesus is the Lamb slain from the foundations of the world and the Lamb standing before the throne of God the Father –this same Jesus is the AUTHOR and FINISHER of our Faith. It is His Book – the Lamb’s Book of Life. Jesus Christ is the SAME yesterday, today and forever – He changes not. He is forever Faithful and True. From Everlasting to Everlasting He is Lord.
Given that He is the Living Word of the Almighty Father God sent to heal and deliver from sin and destruction, we can trust Him implicitly in all things. No matter how something “seems”, “looks” or “appears” — no matter what anyone else says — look to Jesus only for He is the Answer, He is the Source of Life. Whatever He says, is…it surely comes to pass no matter what comes against it.
The trying (testing) of your faith builds it and proves it genuine to those who are watching and bearing witness that God’s Word is Truth.
When a challenge or resistance comes against what God said, this is where the rubber meets the road. You are standing on holy ground for wherever God places you is where His authority reigns supreme —
simply trust and obey whatever He tells you to do!
God is teaching you to remain at rest in HIM firmly established by faith.
Meanwhile, the moment we get tired in the waiting, God’s Spirit is right alongside helping us along. If we don’t know how or what to pray, it doesn’t matter. He does our praying in and for us, making prayer out of our wordless sighs, our aching groans. He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God. That’s why we can be so sure that every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.
Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him.
For all of you are God’s children through faith in the Messiah Jesus. But all who have received Him, to them–that is, to those who trust in His name–He has given the privilege of becoming children of God.
Galatians 3:26, John 1:12
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
1 John 5:13
This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother. And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us.
1 John 3:10, 1 John 3:23
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the
victory that has overcome the world; our faith. Who is he who
overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son
1 John 5:4-5
