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.

Light vs. darkness & the Word of the Living God ?

Truth_Behind_Secret     Today, there are teachings flooding our world, and even the Christian church, which destroy faith in the Word of God. Our great adversary, the Devil and Satan has come down having great wrath because he knows that he has only a short time remaining. And as our Saviour has warned us, the dragon has opened his mouth, and poured out a flood of mystical counterfeits, in his efforts to destroy faith in the unfailing Word of the Living God !

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try (test) the spirits whether they are of God . . . . because many false prophets (those in-spired by another) are gone out into the world . . . !”
I John 4:1-6

One such teaching which has swept the world like a storm, is that promoted by Oprah Winfrey, called “the law of attraction.”   And this same teaching is now finding it’s way into many Christian circles through similar beliefs, such as the prosperity gospel.

But how are we as children of God to discern between the Truth, and the lies of the great deceiver ? Continue reading

The Windows of Heaven Opened ?

windows light heavenOur Privileges in Christ Jesus

      “To whom He said, This is the Rest wherewith ye shall cause the weary to rest; and this is the Refreshing; yet they would not hear . . . !” Isaiah 28:12-13 & ref: Hebrews 3:18-19 & 4:1-12 & Exodus 31:12-17

What think ye of Christ ?” What is He to you personally? Is your faith centered in Him as your Redeemer? Do you believe that He saves you from sin, and that He imputes to you His righteousness? . . . . The believing man, even tho he be unlearned, has a knowledge that can not be wrested from him. The one who trusts his Saviour implicitly finds the gate of heaven ajar (opened), and flooded with glory from the throne of God . . . !

The Work of Faith ?

mountain2     “To HIM that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth (to render, show or regard as innocent, just and righteous) the ungodly, his faith is counted for (as) righteousness.”     Romans 4:5

 Salvation is not a thing which we earn by our own good works, but rather it is a free gift from our Father in heaven, through Jesus Christ . . . . and the works of righteousness are but the fruits of the indwelling of His promised Holy Spirit . . .

And this greatest of gifts is given us through faith that He will fulfill that which He has promised !

For it is God Who works in you, both to will, and to do of His good pleasure . . . !” “For Thou also hast wrought all our works in us . . . O LORD our God !”   Philippians 2:13 & Isaiah 26:12

Faith & the Word of your Salvation !

     For I am not ashamed of the Glad Tidings of Christ . . . . for It is the power of God unto Salvation to every one that believeth . . . . For (and) the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him (the Word that was made flesh) shall not be ashamed . . . !”    Romans 1:16 & 10:11

Now, this is the question which we must ask ourselves . . . . Do I trust Him ?
DO I REALLY BELIEVE . . . ?

Please contact us if we can help in any way. And ask if you would like us to send you more Truths like these.
May the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) Bless and keep you by the power of His Life-giving Word !
