CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE FAITH
Are You Still in The Faith?
Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.
2 Corinthians 13:5
Are You Brave and Very Courageous?
King James Version (KJV)
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Many years ago, a friend of my mother said to me that she refused to go through the tribulation. Since then, I have heard many other Christians saying similar things.
We, Christians of all people should have no fear of death. We overcome Satan by The Blood of The Lamb, The Word of our testimony, and we love “not” our lives unto the death.
This is the Scripture that tells us how to become “Overcomers”.
Fear is a lack of faith and trust in the power of God. Fear comes when our faith is not strong.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. Without faith; it is impossible to please God.
How do we attain faith? Faith is not only a fruit of The Holy Spirit, but it is also a gift of The Holy Spirit.
Faith comes by hearing and hearing by The Word of God or The Holy Bible.
When we read, listen to, and study God’s Word our faith grows stronger and stronger.
The Word of God tells it like it is, but it also provides the redemptive side to our lives, our future and our work on this earth.
The Word of God provides faith, hope, wisdom, knowledge, anointing to teach, power to believe God, and it contains all the power of Jesus Christ inside of its words.
The world was formed by His Words spoken through the power of The Holy Spirit. It is not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, sayest The Lord Jesus Christ.
Come to the River of Life, faith and Light. Come to The Word of God and find a regenerated faith and hope and love for God.
The enemy hates the Word of God, and he goes to any length to try and discredit it, and he has been trying to destroy it for centuries. However, it remains as strong and as powerful as ever.
We need it now more than ever before. Dust off your Bible, and jump into a sea of love, joy, peace and renewed faith.
I have The Bible in every form possible.
I love to listen to it on my electronic mp3 player, I love to hear it on youtube, I love to check out Scriptures throughout the day. It is like being resurrected spiritually.
How is your faith? Are you still in the beautiful arms of faith in our loving God through Jesus Christ and activated by The Holy Spirit?
If you have all kinds of fears and phobias; The Word of God can deliver you from them all.
Speak the Word of God that tells us that God did not give us a spirit of fear, timidity or cowardice, but He has given us a spirit of power, perfect love and a sound sharp clear mind.
Speak the words of life, and the words, deeds and thoughts that bring death, fear and doubt will vanish.
What we speak is crucial to our mental, physical and emotional health. The Word of God brings new life and vitality to our minds, our hearts and our bodies. It renews our immune system, and our ability to bear fruit for The Kingdom of God.
Blessed is the man that walks not in the way of the ungodly……
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in His law does he meditate day and night.
He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of waters, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his
leaf shall not wither, and whatsoever he does shall
My prayer for You:
Dear Father God,
Please give all of Your children a love for Your Word and a love for The Truth. It is the Truth that sanctifies us and Your Word brings new life into our lives.
It refreshes our salvation, and it generates new trust in You. It is powerful and it is sharper than any two-edged sword.
It causes us to grow up into the image of Jesus Christ, just by absorbing it daily like the Israelite at the manna in the desert.
Thank You For Your Glorious Word.
May we come back to our first love for You and for Your Word in Jesus’ mighty Name. Amen, amen and amen.
