Faith   

 

Faith is the only way given to us to help build a pleasant relationship with God. In order to touch God, we must have Faith in His pure word. When we have Faith in His word; it means that: God  we trust You, You are worthy to guide our lives, we are Your creatures…

As human being, we have got 5 functions by which nervous system conscientiously perceives and analyzes external objects or phenomena. They are commonly called the five senses which are: Sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. Therefore, at least one of these 5 senses must be used in order to establish a relationship with a human being. But, for God there is only one Sense to use to get in contact with Him, and that only sense is Faith. What happened with the woman suffering from the heavy bleeding in Luke 8:44-48 demonstrates to any believer  that touching bodily or handling the word of God has no effect if one does not have Faith. Whereas crowd touched Him, it is written < <  And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any, Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched. And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.> > Luke 8: 44-48.

In connection with Faith, Apostle Paul has provided to people of God a very good summary in Hebrews chapter 11. He enumerates how since Abel till their time, God turned up victorious those who touched Him by faith. In verse 6 he says: < < But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. > >. In the sermon entitled: The anointed of the end time, page 12(fr), the prophet of God says that < < Faith is the revelation of the will of God > >. And in the Ministry for the Lord, the aim of  faith was mentioned several time: Your faith has saved you, let it happen to you  according to your faith (MT 8: 13, Mc 5:34 etc), all these people were saved because, they had believed and recognized the will of God in their time. They were not mockers like Pharisees,  Sadducees and others whom did not have the revelation to recognize the scriptures that God was fulfilling in the Ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ.

If  Faith, as apostle Paul summarized from the whole testimony of the Bible, is a sine qua non condition in establishing good  relationship with God; Then, we are  right to question our selves and know: For which reason many of religious leaders will be rejected?  Why Lord will not even consider that they were making miracles in His name!!!? (Matthew 7: 21-23) Did they not have faith? In what their faith was it different from the elect’s one ? This would be a question rising from  a simple common sense of whoever does not want to play or neglect his eternal destiny. This is the  question which should refrain  each and every one of us from euphoria and artificially created enthusiasm in some mix of charismatic and Pentecostist  meeting etc. in which  homosexual marriages and pastors are honored !!!  Today is the time to ask ourselves, honestly this vital question and  correct our trajectory because, indeed many will be disappointed, and many will not be able to deny they were warned that their pastors were  modern Qoré, Balaam, and Pharisees.

However, generally, every body has at least  faith in something: There is faith in oneself or confidence, faith in ones capacities to retain the biblical verses and so on but, in the Holy Scriptures one can’t  be saved by his carnal competences, Proverbs 11:28 < < He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch. > >, Ezekiel  33:13 < <When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it. > > Then in Romans the apostle clarifies that being zealous in all that is called work of God  is null if there is not knowledge, and no revelation to recognize and submit one self to God’s fulfillment of scriptures in ones generation, he says < < Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.  For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. > > Roman 10:1 – 3,  Luke 7: 29-30.

The Faith  that is supported and spoken about in the Holy Scriptures, consists in believing in what comes from the mouth of Christ: < <  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God > >, Roman 10:17. Believing that God  exists etc. can be found in many people: In political hypocrites as well as in religious believe all the same, including the Devil. Prophets and apostles knew that, Saint James speaks and explains about it: < < Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. > >, James 2:19. Therefore, faith consisting in believing in oneself and in the visible is significant for our carnal life but, it is not sufficient because man is more spiritual than carnal. The body is only an envelope of the man but, unfortunately we tend to be more preoccupy by the envelope rather than its content! Therefore, concerning the life of the interior man, the eternal life; We must entrust, and completely found our faith in the word of God because, < < … that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live. > >, Deuteronomy 8:3b. Man should not live by the word of religious institutions. Any honest person, even novice, will note that preaching, from which believers are nourished in several churches, do not proceed from the mouth of God. They are in the contrary diametrically opposed to the biblical foundation. But, God is always clear; He does not want our faith to be founded on teachings of any so called church but, rather in His pure word as It goes out of His mouth to nourish His children. Man is not suppose to try and convert God, like this generation misleads many people, man is  rather supposed to convert his self and listen to the voice of the good Shepherd who is confident of His people as He says < < ...My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me  > >  They will not hear voice of a religious organization, John 10: 26-27.  He knows  precisely the mark of His people: < < He that is of God, listens to the words of God; you do not listen, because you are not of God > > Jean 8: 47. And in connection with John 13:20, the apostle gives the same mark of recognition of those who are really of God; 1 John 4:6.

Therefore, the faith which will never disappoint anybody consists in approaching the word of God with the intention to understand it the way He expects us to understand, believe and practice it. But, they are rare to do so; Many are those who approach  the word of God to adapt it to their own desires, thus twisting it, perverting it and understanding it according  the vision of this adulterous generation etc. So, the very important lesson to retain from the Lord and the apostles about faith, is that what ever we do in the name of God, will be useless if we refuse to believe Him according to the written authentic testimony of His word. If God is not honored with our obedience; then one misleads an other by saying  that the most important  is just to believe. God is not at all honored when people defy His word and believe in traditions of  men. Believing without obeying His requirements one is not different from the Devil who believes too, trembles, and whose discussions with God are described  in Job 1:6-12. If because of a gift, one disobeys willfully the strict recommendations written in the Holy scriptures; Then one is not different from Balaam who had also visions etc.  (Numbers 24), and of whom the apostle  Jude speaks: < <  But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots > >, Jude 10-13.

Yes, it so well expressed by the apostle; Also, nowadays such people can be found among the people of God, false anointed, wolves, people who are not sent of God to preach His word, working for their bellies, corrupts by popularity, they scorn, they insult those who are really sent of God, they prevent the children of God to get involved in the Ministry of the promised prophet for our time, instead of correcting their teachings and practices in the light of the holy revealed word, they prefer to dwell in their antibiblical teachings and behaviors in which they maintain believers unconscious and suspended, cord in the neck, in top of the hell, thus wasting the time of grace for several people! All evangelists who have become famous and recognized internationally after the departure of Brother William Marrion Branham know that he was the only man confirmed by God, God  showing signs and wonders, as to show people that this is  Elijah  that was to turn the hearts of children toward their fathers according to Malachi 3 :24, this ministry was still confirmed in the future by the Lord in Matthew 17: 11. All elect of God will listen to and support this Ministry which has only one objective: To refuse all interpretations of man, and to found our Faith in the infallible word of God, Ephesians 2:20. That is the Faith which pleases God. This world will not be judged according to various catechisms' of political churches but, well by the word of God whose prophets and apostles gave testimony! Amen.

<< ¶Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand >>. It would be unwise not to arrange honestly ones own life with God whereas the time of grace tends to its end!

It is still time to follow what the Lord says:  < < Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. > > Matthew 7:  24-27.
