Word of Faith Today,
is about finding truth today. Rom 10:8-13;
What if you know something that could save someone´s life, what should you do about it? This something is what I know for sure, there are no maybes. Truly we need to seriously consider this message today!
I found out something and it is true, Jesus is real! He brings this life, spiritual life. John 6:63, Romans 8:6.
Sometimes we do get experiences as Paul’s experience on the road to Damascus. Acts 9:3-4. Which saved his life and turned it around, I mean completely around. So much so that he went about preaching and teaching the truth no matter what others thought of him, even if his life was in jeopardy at times. Yet some people still did not believe what he was telling them. The same still goes on today. The truth is still the truth.
Paul preached [Acts 13:38-39] what Jesus had truly done while here on earth, we need to believe that fact. We really need to be diligent and honest about finding out whether this is true or not. I know without a shadow of a doubt that it is true. That Jesus is our redeemer Col 1:13-14, God's grace Ephesians 1:7.This is an excerpt from my testimony.
"A light came on, for the first time I grasped the reality of the body and blood of Jesus, He really did that for me, died on the cross for me. He took my place."
But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" (that is, the word of faith which we preach) Rom 10:8-13.
[Deut 30:14] [Isa 28:16] [Joel 2:32] [Acts 2:21]
[Ps 34:18] [2 Cor 6:2]
Must be Born Again
I love my family all of them I want them to grasp a hold of this truth. Not only them but the people I meet every day. A lot of people see the born again experience as foolishness. It's only foolish to the natural man. I Cor 2:14, friends this is the way God planned it, to be spiritually discerned. It is not foolishness it is the wisdom of God.
Do we fall into this category?
Sometimes we have a zeal for God but not grasping the truth of God's Word. Just like Paul bearing record of in Rom 10:2. Or what is said in 2 Timothy 3:7.
We need to pray for wisdom here. James 1:5.
Not every Christian that says there a Christian has eternal life with Jesus. You must be a born again Christian to receive eternal life to be with Jesus in heaven. Jesus as said this in John 3:1-18 and especially John 3:3, John 3:5, and John 3:7, this says, "You must be Born Again," no matter how foolish it might sound. Death is an unavoidable event but where you end up is a choice. John 3:16, Rom 6:23.
We make the mistake of thinking we are going to heaven because we are good or doing good deeds, performance of moral or religious acts "salvation by deeds" and even belonging to a certain church or organization will help. Eph 2:8-9, says grace is a gift, not of works. "You must be born again." Also read Titus 3:5.
Don´t take this lightly, don´t wait to find you are already there in hell, just like the rich man we read about in scriptures. The Rich Man and Lazarus! Luke 16:19-31. I have to tell you it is too late to cry out then, just like the rich man did. Your time is now! 2 Cor 6:2. There are some who do not even bother with finding out about salvation or just mock it and I have heard some say I'm going to join my friends in hell. What a tragedy!Oh don't say!
"What do I care?" Surely you care about your soul; surely hell is worth escaping; surely heaven is worth winning; surely that cross on which our Savior died is worth considering; surely that poor soul of yours is worth caring about! Charles Spurgeon;
It would be a shame if we went through our whole lives without finding out why Christ died for us. Search it out for you. True wisdom is finding these things out for you, not always going with the flow of the world. The word is frequently taken out of context. So check these things out that I have commented on. Job 34:3, Psalm 34:8.
Seat of the scornful
Don't sit in the seat of the scornful about the Word of Faith. Rom 10:8.
What is the seat of the scornful? Psa 1:1, Prov 21:24.
There are some who speak against faith (the faith movement critics) and the born again Christian, mocking and sounding very scornful. Expressing extreme contempt: That is not wise before God. Trying to make everyone listen to their opinions, as if no one is able to discern for themselves. Do a study on faith for yourself because it's not about them, it's about you.
The Unpardonable Sin (Blasphemy)
“Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven men. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. Matthew 12:31-32, Mark 3:28-30, Luke 12:10.
Speaking against the doing and teaching of the Holy Spirit, like the Pharisees who attributed the miracles of Jesus to an unclean spirit, this is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. So be very careful about saying anything against the move of the Holy Spirit.
There are those that are really speaking the Truth. Don´t lump everyone together. I really have to emphasize Know God for yourself. Do not let anything deter you. Reading what the Word says in 1 John 4:1-6 explains. Apostles, Prophets, Evangelist, Pastors and Teachers, what they say has to line up with the Word of God."Don´t let the troubles of this life and the misdeeds of others influence your faith. Do not reject God when you see others misrepresent Him and live a life of hypocrisy in His precious name."
A quote from Alex G Austins book: Forever Changed Forever Loved:
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." Jim Elliot (slain missionary to Ecuador)
Ask Seek Knock
I have found the Word of God true. Seek it out; Mat 7:7-8 search it out for you. It is a
Living Word, Heb 4:12 truly relevant today, Jesus fills a void in our life and with a fulfillment that we need a life-changing need. The scripture is really telling us in Hebrews 11:6. Here is a promise you can rely on 1 John 5:14-15.
"God rewards those who seek Him. Not those who seek doctrine or religion or systems or creeds." Max Lucado:
My tongue and its fruit
The Word says I'm justified by my words or condemned by my words. So I am responsible for what comes out of my mouth. So a scripture like reaping what you sow Gal 6:7 and Matthew 15:11 come to mind. The Word of God is a seed and my words are seeds, so what am I planting. Proverbs 18:20-21 says Death and Life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it shall eat the fruit of it. So really the fruit we need in our life is found in Galatians 5:22-23.
Fruit of our doings.
So many people today are in rebellion and rejecting God and they might not understand that they will not inherit the kingdom of God. Gal 5:20-21.
And also in Jer 32:19, and Jer 17:10; we read about the fruit of our doings.
The Christian attitude is not to reject or hold in disdain but love God and your neighbor as yourself, Luke 10:27. Really we should share and in love when opportunity comes to share the Good News.
Rom 6:23 says for the wages of sin is death, but the next part of this verse says, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
This is what we need to know today! 2 Peter 3:9.
The Essence of the LawWhat does the Lord your God require of you? Deut 10:12-14 and in verse Deut 10:13 it tells us it is for our good. Micah 6:8 puts forth the same question.
And Jesus tells us the same thing in Mark 12:29-31 and there are two very important things in verse Mark 12:31 to notice. And we really can't leave the golden rule out in Mat 7:12.
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. Gal 3:24.
But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. Gal 3:25.
Jesus is always there to forgive anyone who offers true repentance.
If you don't know Jesus personally or you are not sure your name is written down in the Lambs Book of Life, Rev 21:27, Rev 3:5 you can choose the following link. Then follow the instructions to make a commitment.
Prophecy for today!As we read these scriptures Jeremiah 9:23-24 you will see this is a prophecy for us today! These scriptures are still relevant for today and needed to be taken to heart.
That day is close.And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it. Zechariah 12:3.
Fruit of his doingsI the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool. Jeremiah 17:10-11.
This has happened.This is talking about Jesus.
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
Zechariah 9:9;...John 12:13-14.
Make the right choiceThese are scripture's that truly need to be read today. Isaiah 5:20-21. Hear, O earth: Jeremiah 6:15-19. Don’t be like these Jeremiah 6:16, do this Matthew 11:29.

How important is this?Way Truth Life:
Its all about love. His way is love, His truth is love and His life is love. Jesus is the only way to the Father. John 14:6.
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Mark 8:36.
What Faith Is?Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Heb 11:1.
When you have substance in your hope nothing is impossible.
Belief is something accepted as truth.
Faith does believe what you can't see.
Faith is believing God's ability to perform His Word, it is believing God will fulfill His promises before we see any proof or evidence of it, because faith is your proof and evidence.
Abraham kind of faith
Rom 4:20-21, Heb 6:15.
Faith in the God who answers prayer!
Trust is believing He will come through on time and He will.
How to receive Faith?So Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Rom 10:17.
A result from hearing the Word of God.
