How Faith Grows Strong ?

Bible 7The Necessity of Cultivating Faith ?

The Scripture declares, “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”
The knowledge of what the Scripture means when urging upon us the necessity of cultivating faith, is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired. We suffer much trouble and grief because of our unbelief, and our ignorance of how to exercise faith.

We must break through the clouds of unbelief . . . !

“Monday was a busy day. At six in the morning, there was a meeting in the vestry of the church. Seventeen were present. I talked to them on faith. I am sure that we are not where we ought to be in this matter. Unbelief is the great obstacle in the way (path) of our spiritual advancement. We all need to pray, “Lord, increase our faith.” Nearly all bore testimony, acknowledging their lack of faith, and their weakness because they have not put their whole trust in the Lord, and taken Christ as their personal Saviour.

At nine o’clock I attended a meeting of the students in the school chapel. About eighty were present, and the room was full. An hour was occupied in reading, and in talking to them about the necessity of their understanding how to exercise faith. This is the science of the gospel.

Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God . . . To you is the Word of this Salvation sent . . . !” Acts 13:26

In Whom also ye trusted, after that ye heard the Word of Truth (Verity), the Glad Tidings of your Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing): in Whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of Promise . . . !” Ephesians 1:13

 

The Scripture declares, “Without faith it is impossible to please God.” The knowledge of what the Scripture means when urging upon us the necessity of cultivating faith, is more essential than any other knowledge that can be acquired. We suffer much trouble and grief because of our unbelief, and our ignorance of how to exercise faith. We must break through the clouds of unbelief.

We can not have a healthy Christian experience, we can not obey the gospel unto Salvation, until the science of faith is better understood, and until more faith is exercised. There can be no perfection of Christian character without that faith that works by love, and purifies the soul . . .”

Now to Him that is of power to stablish you, according to my Glad Tidings, and the preaching (proclamation) of Jesus Christ (Yehuwah’s Salvation and Anointing), according to the revelation of the mystery . . . Christ in you the hope of glory ! . . . which was kept secret since the world began.   ref: Isaiah 10:27 & Titus 3:4-5

But now is made manifest, and by the Scriptures of the prophets, according to the Commandment of the Everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith !” Romans 16:25-26

 

“For I am not ashamed of the Glad Tidings of Christ: for it is the power of God unto Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing and restoration) . . . to every one that believeth. To the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the Righteousness of God revealed from faith, to faith: as it is written,

The Just shall live by faith !” Romans 1:16-17

And faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . ! ” Romans 10:17
