“23 Let us hold fast the profession of [our] faith without wavering; (for he [is] faithful that promised;) … 38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if [any man] draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.”
Hebrews 10:23, 38
Brothers and Sisters; does your Faith and your Walk agree? Do you Walk in Obedience, having Faith in Your Walk, that it Pleases Jesus? Our Walk is in Love for God who Loved us First, that, He gave His Only Begotten Son to be the Sacrificial Lamb that the Father would accept. Our Faith is in Jesus that the Price He Paid, covers our Sins making us Acceptable to The Father.
By Faith we Confess that Jesus is The Savior, The Son Of The Father, the One who Paid a Price for us to Live in a Pleasing matter to Jesus and The Father through the Power and Authority of The Holy Spirit that dwells within us.
Our Faith Walk is one of a Love/Hate Relationship. .. we Love God, Obeying Him and Hate the World, the Sin that is within. If we Profess that Jesus is Lord, then does our Life Proclaim as such that others may know?
In James, we read that without Works Faith is Dead and yet many do Dead Works!
“But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”
“But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
A Key Point is in the later Scripture…Diligently Seek Him. We Must Diligently Seek Jesus, Desiring to be As He Is In Faithfulness to The Father, so must we be to Him. The issue is that you may think that you are Diligently Seeking Jesus by Your Actions, but Your Speech speaks a different story.
If Scripture tells us to Obey The Magistrate and we do not, then where is The Diligence In Jesus? If Scripture tells us that Homosexuals are an Abomination and yet you accept the sin, then where is The Diligence In Jesus? If Scriptures say that Divorce is wrong then why have so many done so…where is The Diligence In Jesus?
Our Diligence MUST Have Actions of Faith Manifested In The Flesh that Jesus Is Lord!!! Our Brother James continues, saying that Faith Without Works is like the Body without the Soul, that it is Our Works that Confess Our Faith before all of Mankind!
“18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. … 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.”
James 2:18, 24
We cannot, Brothers and Sisters, continue to say that we Have Faith that Jesus is Lord and yet be separated with other Brothers and Sisters who are Saved by the same Grace, the same Mercy having Jesus as Their Savior! If you think that the church that you go to is the Only church with the right answer, then do you have a flaw in your Faith. If you think that the Denomination that you pay your Tithe to is the only one on the “Right Pay” then there is a flaw in your Faith.
For I Read and Believe that we are All to be Reading, Walking In the Same Faith having the Same Lord.
“3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.”
For I Declare that if you Up Hold your church, your denomination above others who Believe, Accept Jesus as Lord, then your Faith is Not in Jesus but to whom you submit to. The Scriptures above are either a Lie or Truth they cannot be both. Satan has tricked 99.999% of those who claim that Jesus is Lord and he has done this so smoothly, seemingly righteous, so lovingly he brings in Division.
Our personal Faith of Walk should be Stern, Bold, upholding The Truth, according to scriptures, with our Brothers and Sisters hand in hand, arm in arm supporting each other that Jesus Is The ONLY REASON and that there is NO OTHER! That Jesus’ ways ARE OUR WAYS!!
Now, it should be that my Faith Compliments My Walk and that my Walk Compliments My Faith. Jesus said that, by nature, two fruits can come out of the same root, meaning that the Fruit is True to its Roots.
“A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.”
If a Man or Woman that is married having children, saying they Love each other, but, either one chooses a Task, Event, Sports over the other one is living a lie, for they Love the Task, Event, Sport more than their family, else why have they forsaken them! So likewise if a Man or Woman whom is Married to Jesus through the Blood in which He shed, then if you put anything, a Task, a Event, a Sport before Jesus then have you forsaken Him.
Now, you say, “I don’t do that…”, it is pretty simply…if your Wife or Child comes to you and says “I need to spend time with you…” and you put them off because of a Task, a Event, a Sport then have you shown your Faith BY YOUR WALK. You have told them I Love my Task, my Event, my Sport more then you, I will GET TO YOU WHEN I AM FREE FROM THIS Task, Event, Sport, making them Second or The Lease Of Priorities. This same process happens between those who claim Jesus as Lord. You tell Jesus I will do…when it is Convenient for Me, showing where your Faith Walk truly is at.
Now with that being said, Understand this, within a House there may be times that this can be true, that a Task or Event may take precedence, but not Sports. There may be some things that have to be done before the other can be done, like waking up before you can speak rationally. But with Jesus there cannot be ANYTHING that takes precedence Above Him.
Why do I continue on this subject matter here? There are people, church’s that will on purpose make sure that they Alter Events, Alter Tasks to Comply with other peoples Tasks, Events and Sports. Social Media, School Events, Public Sports are major avenues that have become gods in people’s Lives, causing Division and Conflict among those whom are called into One Order.
So then, my Faith Walk must be that of Personal and Public, that Jesus Is All Consuming. It starts with God and is Passed to Man, not women, to be The Head in this Faith Walk. In other words, it is Man who sets the precedence Of Jesus that the Women and Children follow thereafter. This means that the Division Of The Church is Man’s Fault, showing Women and Children that it is okay to have Differences Of OPINION, where as Jesus says that He Is THE ONLY TRUTH!
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
I do not Read that Jesus has Multiple Ways, Multiple Truths and Multiple Lives, but I do Read that Jesus is the Only way to The Father. I do not Read where My Opinion Counts or My Beliefs!! So my Faith Walk must be Inside, Outside, Personal and Publicly Announcing that Jesus Is Lord Of My Life!
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
“Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”
If I go to church, read the bible, do charity events and yet do not Obey The Word, then my Faith Walk tells the World it does not matter, that I can Live however I want to and it will be Acceptable to Jesus! Yet the Scriptures tell us that my Faith Walk MUST be in Compliance with The Father and Jesus.
“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”
“I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.”
Brothers and Sisters your Faith Walk must be Without Compromise, it must be in Compliance with Jesus’ Will. We cannot Walk the Walk if it does not line up with the Bible and The Holy Spirit, the Four of Us Must Agree, that is, The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit and self MUST AGREE and it comes down to; I MUST AGREE WITH The Father, The Son and Holy Spirit!!!
The Godhead will Allow me to Live however I want to, but when it comes to Judgment Day, the only thing that will count will be The Will Of The Father whether It was Done or Not Done!
Brothers and Sisters we must break these chains that have bound us as enemies, that our Faith Walk is True according to The Scriptures and The Holy Spirit and NOTHING ELSE. Our Faith Walk must be Weighed every moment of the day to ensure that we are Doing within The Fathers Will, that Jesus is Truly Lord over our Lives and that it is not just empty words.
Too many of you if you hear a name of a Denomination are quick to judge and Not Discern Truth. If you hear the name Baptist you think “Oh they Believe…”, or if you hear the name Full Gospel you think “Oh they Believe…” or if you hear the name Church Of Christ you think “Oh they Believe…”. These walls must be broken down, our Faith Walk should be in One Accord, Standing On Scripture Alone and Walking In The Spirit, rejecting Men’s doctrine and Satan’s Lies!!!
If a person says that they have accepted Jesus as Lord, then let their Works, their Walk Agree, if it does not then call them out as they are, a Liar! Now, with that being said, there are and can be many, many different progression of growth. Someone who is a Smoker may take days, weeks, months, even years to Allow Jesus Lord over that situation or if they are an Alcoholic it may take days, weeks, months, even years to Allow Jesus Lord over that situation, but Understand this, there MUST BE CHANGE going forward. Now, how is this accomplished one might ask? It takes Men of God Standing Up doing their part, that is, they must Mentor those who are babes, teenage, or adults to become Mature In Jesus and likewise the women must Mentor those who are babes, teenage, or adults in becoming Mature in Jesus.
“1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience. 3 The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 [To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. 6 Young men likewise exhort to be sober minded. 7 In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine [shewing] uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, 8 Sound speech, that cannot be condemned; that he that is of the contrary part may be ashamed, having no evil thing to say of you.”
Brothers and Sisters we are what we are taught, and it take the Aged Men, Aged Women who are Godly to Teach, to be Examples for the younger generations to have a Correct Faith Walk. That they Learn that nothing comes before Jesus and that we must Live according to His Will and not ours. We have gotten where we are at because of the Lack Of Godliness, the Lack Of The Aged Men and Women NOT Teaching, NOT Mentoring.
Stop and Think about Your Faith and Your Walk what do they say, what do other people read?
Your Faith Walk
is a Walk
Of Whom You
Obey In Faith!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
