Without God none of these things would exist, and above all these things, God has given us his only begotten Son Jesus to spare us from his fiery wrath and consuming fire.
Ingrate, ingrate, ingrate, so are the people.
Abraham told the rich man in hell, Neither will they be persuaded, though One rose from the dead. Jesus is from the dead. What Abraham proclaimed, I see it every day. As long as people go on eating, drinking, and playing, they will never care to esteem God and Jesus Christ for what they have done for us. Jesus was faced with this same situation. His woes turned against Chorazin and Bethsaida because they did not repent after the mighty works that were done. The same was for Capernaum. Jesus told them they would be brought down to hell.
As you can see my beloved, nothing has really changed even after all Jesus has done for us! The chastisement of our peace was upon him, and with his stripes we are healed, and yet, men and women will not esteem Him! Will He find faith? Will He find faith on the Earth?
I watch Christians of various denominations who have no esteem for what God and Jesus have done. Much like the rest of the world, they eat, drink, and play, which leaves no time for the word of God. The little bit they may get in church wont even make them blink at what Jesus did on Calvary! If they would esteem Him, they would separate from eating, drinking, and playing. Will He find faith? Will He find faith on the Earth?
I am thankful the woes of Jesus and his threat to be cast in hell are not after me. Ohhh! Ohhh! Alleluia! Im glad! Glory to God! Do you feel what I feel? Alleluia!
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him or of her that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace and salvation? Anyone not found doing this will be found playing by the wayside, on the rock among thorns, not having the word for faith, enjoying modern Christianity, having no root, and choked with the cares, riches and pleasures of this world. It really is good to be found today with the faith Jesus is coming back for
The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations (Jesus on the cross). My dear saints, we have no time to lose, and theres no time to play. All there is left to do is to hold fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. I have planted this message in the heart and mind of countless people across Canada for over 30 years. I have to tell you that not too many care to believe Pauls teaching that faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God. They do not have the word of God for faith, so they look for all kinds of persuasions in which to believe in God. They do not have the faith needed to be born of God and to sin no more. This is the main reason why Christians cannot believe we can live free from sin with the faith that Jesus is coming back for.
God does not have a variety of faiths. Nor does He have multicolored faith, inter-denominational faith, interfaith, all-denominations faith, Mormon faith, Jehovahs Witness faith, etc
The God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will not marry his Lamb with any such faiths. They are not of God and they are not holy. Anything that defileth and whatsoever worketh abomination or maketh a lie will not and can never be the bride and wife of Jesus. Nevertheless; will Jesus ever get Himself a bride?
Our word of God ministry will create that one holy thing which is the bride of the Lamb of God. We are going to strive more and more to work out our own salvation with fear and with trembling! Jesus deserves his bride, and even if I have to be the only one, He will have his bride! Alleluia! Job was the only perfect and upright person around, yet God was proud to show him off to Satan. I believe that through the word, you and I can make God proud and we can be his pride in Christ, today!
When I look at Job, I see no particular reason for him to be perfect and upright except that he feared God and eschewed evil. He was Gods pride in the land of Uz. I cant see any reason why none of us cant be the bride and wife of the Lamb. All we have to do is eschew evil and go on living holy! Anyone who will esteem Jesus and our Father in heaven for what they have done for us will not have any difficulty to be Gods pride on this side of heaven. Shall He find faith on the Earth? Job feared God. The fear of God is missing in Christians. That is the reason why so few will ever have the faith Jesus is coming for.
I am certain that I have found you today with great faith in God, and nobody but nobody can take that away from you. Nevertheless; is this great faith word of God faith? Is it the word of God that motivates your mind to think God and to think Jesus, or is this just a natural routine? When is the last time you read your Bible? When is the last time you went about doing what the Bible says so that you may glorify God in spirit and in truth? Doing what the Bible tells us to do is to live by the faith Jesus is coming back for. He that endureth unto the end shall be saved (shall be found with the word of God faith)!
The centurion, the widow with two mites, the Canaanite woman with dog faith, the woman with the issue of blood, the man sick with palsy, Bartholomew the blind man, the faith of Paul, and the faith of Peter were not based on their own feelings. Ohhh! I could go on and on. Daniels faith with the lions, the three Hebrews faith in the furnace
this was not faith based on feelings either. Ohhh! I could go on and on!
Living holy and without blame! This is no feeling faith! This is doing what the word of God sayeth faith. Christians profess to have faith in God and in Jesus and yet they cannot stop sinning! Feeling faith is a dead faith; it cannot help you stay out of sin. Believing you have faith will keep you in sin. You are saved and sanctified holy by doing what the word of God says. Now that is faith! Nevertheless! Those who are born of God by the word of God birth will have no problem with sin. I could go on and on. You cant just believe that you have faith because Paul had it, nor because you read it in the Bible and you believe what the Bible says. No! No! No! How can you confess you are saved by grace through faith and yet you still sin? This is not grace and this is not faith. Grace and faith is when you stop sinning, and then you sin no more. You cant just say youre going to stop!
Neither can you say you have faith and you believe but you dont give to the man of God! This is not the faith that comes by hearing the word of God, because the word of God says to purpose in your heart and so give. That is faith faith! Lets do it! Praise God! Show God, show the devil, show the man of God, show Jesus, show the cloud of witnesses watching you, and show it to yourself that you are not a Christian with head and lips faith. Bleed that bank account today, revenge all false and dead faith, fulfill all obedience today! 2 Corinthians 10: 6.
Show it to me now! Shall He find faith when He cometh? Will I see your faith in the mail?
