Living by Faith

I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me– Galatians 2:20. Living by the faith of the Son of God works like this: If someone was to tell you that you are going to hell or if you once thought so yourself, now being equipped with your upgrade of the faith of Jesus Christ, you can say and believe in your innermost being that is not true. Instead, you can say to yourself ― I am heaven bound, and you can think and say this with believing conviction because it is true according to the Bible. If someone was to say you are unrighteousness or if you ever assumed this of yourself, now with faith, you can know in your heart that you are as righteous as God Himself is because it is true according to the Bible. If someone was to say to you that you are destined to failure or if you believed in your heart that success was not for you ― with faith, you can rise above that negative perception of yourself because faith has made you more than a conqueror through all situations.” ~LMJ~

Life Eternal

He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life– I John 5:12. Oh, yes, there are many gods that can be worshiped and even cherished, but for the believer who looks to the true God and His Son Jesus Christ, their blessed privilege for doing so is an understanding of life eternal not when we die, but now while we are here upon this earth we can understand our eternal gift. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life– I John 5:20.” ~LMJ~

Blessed Are They That Believe

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

John 20:29 – Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Thomas is sometimes called “doubting Thomas” because he always wanted to see things before believing in them. Jesus was telling him that because he was so doubtful, his believing would be limited. As we know Jesus Christ ascended up into heaven (Acts 1:9-10), and he is no longer physically here, and when we believe in him we are “blessed,” for the written Scriptures do take the place of Christ (here on earth), and the requirement for understanding and seeing (perceiving) Christ is our believing.

John 20:30 – And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book {nor in any book}:

Jesus’ life was so exciting that it was next to impossible to record all that he had done for humanity. Nevertheless, we do have the four Gospels and the New Testament Epistles to glean all that we can about the life of Jesus Christ, and according to the Scriptures this is all that is required to obtain salvation and eternal life (II Corinthians 4:18).

John 21:25 – And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

Jesus certainly had a busy ministry while he was here, and not everything that he had done is written for us, but instead of focusing on what we do not have, we may focus on what we do have. When we believe the revealed Scriptures, Jesus said we would be blessed. Having this (one) wonderful little Bible of ours is an extreme blessing because God could have given to us libraries full the world round to study and figure things out about life and God. But He made things simple by showing us all we need to believe in His Word, and the more abundant life is the end result (John 10:10b).

John 20:31 – But these are written {the Scriptures}, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have {eternal} life through his name.

“Blessed are they that believe,” for in believing the sky is the limit! You are God’s best, His loved ones, His precious children, and you are the reason Christ came in the first place. He has redeemed you, and made available to you a new life that has a beginning (when you were saved) and now has no end, and this is why you are eternally blessed of God forever and ever!

Ah, So Perfect, So Awesome

“Critics so often see wasted space in three repetitive Gospels and one out of place; however, we notice a multiplicity of exciting details.

The skeptics see imperfect documents; nevertheless, we perceive the perfection of beauty in every word.

The cynics see unbelievable legends and myths; though, we witness authentic revelations of the Son of God who is the way.

The agnostics see in the spirit of blindness and carelessness ― inconsistency, their eyes were holden that they should not know him– Luke 24:16, nonetheless, we observe glimpses and revelations from the spirit of truth that opens the joy and rejoicing of our hearts, And their eyes were opened, and they knew him– Luke 24:31.

The pessimists see incomplete thoughts and sentences; conversely, we discern what our faith has afforded us, wholeness, and with our spiritual understanding we delightfully walk with Jesus by the way and say, one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures– Luke 24:32.” ~LMJ~

If at Any Time in Your Life You Believed Romans 10:9-10 – You Are Really Never All Alone…Backsliding Is Kaput! God Does Not Renig!

“Knowing of the Son of God who abides in our hearts is to ascertain the still small voice of God in our daily lives.

In truth – wheresoever you live – wherever you go – where you are at this moment, this is the place you are with God in Christ – in you.

Christ Jesus is the true voice of our God, and he speaks to us of his Father’s love, giving us daily spiritual inspirations of loving comfort, and showing us that we are never alone when walking with him. Christ comforts, exhorts, and edifies our daily endeavors to know him personally as our Savior.” ~LMJ & CAJ~

Romans 10:9-10:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
