Lord God Almighty…the mountains quake before You, and the hills melt away. The very mountains melt like wax in Your Presence! The Earth trembles at Your Presence…the world and all who live in it. Heaven and Earth flee from the Almightiness of Your Presence! [Nah 1:5; Ps 97:5; Ezek 38:20; Rev 20:11]
10th ISRAEL: THE REDEMPTION OF FAITH
Blessedness of faith
By faith Rahab perished not. Salvation by faith was not for Israel only, but for the Gentiles as well. By faith Rahab was not only saved, but became one of the ancestors of Jesus. She stands as one of the cloud of witnesses that tell of the blessedness of faith: have faith in God; all things are possible to him who believes.” [Mark 9:23-24] I am to let faith be ALL with me, and God will BE ALL in me. I need only let God BE ALL in me and He will DO ALL through me, with me, and in me…exceedingly abundantly above all I could ever ask or think! Now to Him Who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. [Eph 3:20-21]
Faith: the very breath of my life
Faith must be the motto of my life. In every need and perplexity, with every desire and prayer, with every work and trial, with every thought of myself and of God, I am to let this be the one thing I ever seek: ever to breathe a living faith in a living God. I can only have as much of God in my heart as I have of faith. And because God is ALL, and must BE ALL to me, faith within me must BE ALL as well.
Faith is the power of my will choosing God’s will, entering into it, and yielding to it. It is only in an unwavering child-like trust, an unreserved child-like dependence, and an unquestioning child-like obedience that faith can act and triumph. Faith has ever to do with God, and nothing to do with my mind or reason. Faith acts even though mind and reason say no. Faith is an action that bears witness to my unwavering child-like trust in God, my unreserved child-like dependence upon God, and my unquestioning child-like obedience to the will of God.
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
