MORNINGTIME 2318
 
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH. Romans 1:17. Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ UNTO ALL AND UPON ALL THEM THAT BELIEVE: for there is no difference: Romans 3:22. (FOR WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT:) Corinthians 5:7. Now FAITH IS the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1. 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. Hebrews 11:6.  "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life", (John 3:16), is a wonderful verse that tells us what Christ did for sinners and that sinners can be saved, BUT, sinners CAN BE  saved even if they have never read this verse. THE MOST IMPORTANT VERSE THAT A SINNER MUST FOLLOW EXACTLY, BOTH PARTS, is Hebrews 11:6. Both parts are required to be followed in order TO be saved. To KNOW that Jesus died for you is nice information, but that's all it is UNLESS AND UNTIL that knowledge settles down into the heart and there it mixes WITH FAITH that God Is and God will make your efforts to find Him worthwhile, THEN, AND ONLY THEN can you be saved. Gospel Knowledge must turn into Gospel Faith to be Saved. All the Pharisees of Jesus day KNEW the Bible inside out, BUT THEY REFUSED TO KNOW THE CHRIST OF THE BIBLE because they had no Faith. Faith is to Believe something with no proof, you just act as though you've seen all the proof, AND DO IT. Read "the Faith chapter" of all the things people did without a shred of evidence it would actually work, Hebrews chapter 11. Salvation ONLY happens when you blindly take God's Word for it and Trust it is True. That's a blind step of Faith where you fall into the Living Arms of Christ for ALL of eternity. There, you will, Be Blessed.
