11-25-2013-EXAMINING OUR FAITH


11 CORINTHIANS 13: 5 = EXAMINE YOURSELVES WHETHER YOU BE IN THE FAITH; PROVE YOUR OWN SELVES.


HEBREWS 11: 1 = NOW FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.


"REMARKS"

I HAVE WRITTEN MANY ARTICLES CONCERNING FOLKS WHO ARE IN THE CHURCH, BUT NOT NECESSARILY OF THE CHURCH, IN THE SAME WAY THE CHURCH IS IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT OF IT.

BY THAT I MEAN MANY PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS AND PROFESS CHRIST JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AS THEIR SAVIOR, MAY NOT HAVE CALLED HIM THEIR LORD, AGAIN MEANING, GIVING UP ALL THEIR LIVES FOR CHRIST, INSTEAD OF HOLDING ON TO MANY FACETS OF A WORLDLY LIFE, WHICH CAUSE THEM TO ACTUALLY LOSE THEIR LIFE.


LUKE 9: 24 =FOR WHOSOEVER WILL SAVE HIS LIFE, SHALL LOSE IT: BUT WHOSOEVER WILL LOSE HIS LIFE FOR MY SAKE, THE SAME SHALL SAVE IT.


LOSING YOUR LIFE FOR CHRIST DOESN'T MEAN LETS SAY, YOU GO INTO THE JUNGLES OF AFRICA AND PREACH THE WORD AND ARE KILLED FOR CHRIST SAKE, THIS IS A GIVEN THAT YOU WILL BE SAVED, BUT WHAT IT MEANS TO LOSE YOUR LIFE IS THAT YOU NO LONGER FOLLOW ALL THE SCHEMES OF THE DEVIL, SATAN, AND THE WAYS OF THIS WORLD BUT YOU DENY YOURSELF OF THIS WORLDS PLEASURES AND PICK UP YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW JESUS, YAH'SHUA, THEN YOU SAVE YOUR LIFE ETERNALLY.

FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD, AS THE BODY WITHOUT THE SPIRIT IS DEAD.

WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT.

IF WE PROFESS FAITH IN JESUS, YAH'SHUA, THEN WE MUST LOSE OUR LIVES AND CARRY OUR CROSS AND DENY OUR FLESHLY LUST.

REMEMBER THE THREE DEADLIEST TRAPS OF A MANS LIFE ARE THESE THREE:

  1. THE LUST OF THE EYES
  2. THE LUST OF THE FLESH
  3. THE PRIDE OF LIFE

OUR LIVES ARE TO BE BUILT UPON GRACE OF GOD, YAH'WEH, THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND THE BLOOD OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA.

YOU CAN'T FOOL GOD, YAH'WEH, AND YOU CAN'T JOIN A CHURCH, YOU ARE THE CHURCH, NOT BY YOUR CHOICE, BUT BY THE CHOICE OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, IT IS HE THAT ADDS TO THE CHURCH.


ACTS 2: 47 = AND THE LORD ADDED TO THE CHURCH DAILY SUCH AS SHOULD BE SAVED.


THOSE WHO HANG THEIR SALVATION ON THE TRADITIONS OF CHURCHES OUTSIDE THE BODY OF THE TRUE CHURCH, ARE FALLING SHORT OF THEIR INHERITANCE.

A METHODIST, OR BAPTIST, OR PRESBYTERIAN, OR ANY OTHER DENOMINATION, HAVE NO SUCH CLAIM TO THE INHERITANCE OF THE HEAVENLY REALM BASED ON THEIR BELONGING TO A DENOMINATION BUT ONLY BY THE SIMPLICITY OF GRACE THROUGH FAITH.

IF PAUL AND I, DO NOT HAVE ATTAINED TO THE RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD, THEN YOUR VALUE OF SALVATION IS WAY TOO DILUTED, TO ACCOMPLISH YOUR RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD.

THEREFORE, WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION, WITH FEAR AND TREMBLING.

I AM ENCOURAGING YOU TO LIVE IN THE FEAR OF GOD, YAH'WEH, AND IN THE FEAR OF THE JUDGMENT DAY, WHICH SEPARATES THE GOOD FROM THE EVIL, THE SHEEP FROM THE GOATS AND DETERMINES OUR FINAL DESTINY.
