Justified by Faith Alone !

bethesdaBut it is a faith which works by love . . .  

Now it was not written for his (Abraham’s) sake alone . . . But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed (reckoned), if we believe on Him that raised up Jesus our Lord (Sovereign King) from the dead . . .      Who was delivered (given up) for our offenses,* (ref: Romans 8:31-34) and was raised again for our justification. Therefore . . . being justified* by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ !”                                                    Romans 4:17-25 and 5:1, 12-19 and 6:1-6

Justified (H6663) = to make clear, to cleanse, to make righteousness
(G1344, 1342) = to render, declare just, innocent, free, holy, and righteous !


The Lord would have His people sound in the faith– not ignorant of the great Salvation so abundantly provided for them. They are not to look forward, thinking that at some future time a great work is to be done for them; for the work is now complete !

The believer is not called upon to make his peace with God; he never has nor ever can do this. He is to accept Christ as his Peace, for with Christ is God and peace.      Christ made an end of sin, bearing its heavy curse in His own body on the tree (II Peter 1:24), and He hath taken away the curse from all those who believe in Him as a personal Saviour (Galatians 3:8-14). He makes an end of the controlling power of sin in the heart, and the life and character of the believer testify to the genuine character of the grace* (G5485) of Christ.

He is More Than Able !

Bible Isaiah     “Wherefore He is able to save (deliver, set free, rescue, heal, and make whole) to the uttermost all that come unto GOD (The Almighty) by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them !”     Hebrews 7:25

 
    This above all else we must remember. And it is this Truth which the entire Bible was written to reveal. For the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) created all the worlds by His spoken Word, and He still today, holds up all those suns and stars by that same Living Spirit-filled Word !
ref: Hebrews 1:1-3
 
    And by that very same Word He is able also to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the throne of His glory with exceeding joy !   ref: Jude 1:24 Continue reading
