"FAITH comes by hearing about JESUS

Updated: Dec 23, 2022

Brethren, Mathew 22:37-40 assures us that the greatest commandment is to LOVE GOD above all else, with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength. The second commandment is like it: 'You shall LOVE your neighbor as yourself.' On these two two commandments, hang all the Law and the Prophets, The LORD, HIMSELF, makes this abundantly clear. Mathew 22:40 is the reference point. With that said, "Surely we all can agree, that our LIFE," is the greatest gift that we have?" And if we lost our LIFE; "what would we have left? Let me help you with that; "Absolutely nothing!" So isn't the whole law of GOD, "summed up" in LOVING GOD, above all else; and caring about the SALVATION of others, and not just ourselves?" I Believe so!" And because we are; "Aren't we sent out to preach The GOSPEL to our fellow man? Aren't we commanded, to LOVE them?" Consider this; if we found ourselves among the lost soul's of humanity, who have no Shepherd, or overseer of their Soul. Wouldn't we each, like to know The WAY we could be "SAVED," and not have to face, Eternal damnation?" Absolutely, we would!" For we would be like sheep, without a Shepherd!" This is exactly, how Mathew 9:36-38 assures us, that The LORD saw the people. And HE, had it written down for us, to consider. So please, consider how it reads: But when HE saw the multitudes, HE was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no Shepherd. Then HE said to HIS disciples, "The harvest is truly plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray The LORD of the harvest to send out laborers into HIS harvest. [Brethren, Isn't it true, that the greatest way to prove our LOVE, for GOD, and others; "is by caring about the SALVATION of others?" For every Soul is precious to GOD? Isn't it? And if we, were still lost, and had no Shepherd; "wouldn't we each be grateful, to the someone, who helped us find The WAY to be reconciled to GOD, and to be accepted by HIM, inheriting, what we don't deserve?" And placed, in the Beloved? In other words, "escaping death, and eternal damnation?" Surely, you would." And so would I !" And because, we would, these WORDS, spoken by The LORD in Mark 8:36-37, sting the unbelieving": For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? [Do you know, what The LORD, says, about making choices? Through Deuteronomy 30:19-20 The LORD presents it, like this: I call HEAVEN and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you LIFE and death, Blessing and cursing; therefore choose LIFE, that both you and your descendants may live; that you may LOVE The LORD your GOD, that you may obey HIS VOICE, and that you may cling to HIM, for HE is your LIFE, and the length of your days. [Brethren, The LORD has called us to make wise choices, and to use our time wisely. To concentrate our energy, towards actions that have lasting value?" To produce for GOD, good fruits." Mathew 7:16 -17 tells us about this, saying: You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. [And through Proverbs 11:30 The LORD assures us, that this is the fruit, that HE is looking for. Consider how it reads: The fruit of the RIGHTEOUS is a Tree of LIFE, And he who wins Soul's is wise. [So since, The LORD assures us, that the fruit of The RIGHTEOUS is a Tree of LIFE; and he who wins Soul's is wise. Through Ephesians 5:15-20 HE gives us our marching orders, saying: See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fool's but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of The LORD is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with The SPIRIT, speaking to one another in Psalms and hymns and SPIRITUAL songs, singing and making melody in your heart to The LORD, giving thanks always for all things to GOD The FATHER in The NAME of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. [Brethren, When we Believed The GOSPEL of CHRIST, GOD approved us, and entrusted us with The GOSPEL to speak, not as pleasing men, but GOD Who tests our hearts. GOD, Beloved Brethren, has left us here, in this lost, and dying world, as a "LIGHT" in the midst of "darkness," to LOVE our fellow man, and to care about their well being and "SALVATION; just as much, as we can." Yes, through LOVE," to shine The LIGHT of The GOSPEL of CHRIST, into their darkness." And pray for them, that they might come into the LIGHT, by simply embracing The GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST." Why should we do this?" Because the people in the church at Laodicea, failed to!" GOD saw that their values were misplaced, for they took pride in their riches and self-sufficiency, pleasures, and lavish lifestyles." But not in their calling to LOVE, and serve GOD." They failed to consider, that we were called to serve GOD, and GLORIFY HIS NAME, by serving others." Yes, to be like our LORD, and overseer of our Soul. For HE HIMSELF, spoke these WORDS from Mathew 20:28 Just as The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give HIS LIFE a ransom for many. [But did you catch that?" The LORD came to give HIS LIFE a ransom for many." For many, but not, for all!" Yet, why not for all?" Because not all, will humble themselves, and acknowledge their sin, and embrace The WORD of The LIVING GOD - JESUS CHRIST, as the cure to death and mortality. But people without FAITH, will not follow HIM, though they are told, that HE guides us, with TRUTH." In like manner, the Laodicean church, was not willing to follow." So HE, told them, that they were lukewarm "SPIRITUALLY," and "far from HIM!" They had to decide and make a choice, "would they continue being among those, who honor GOD with their lips; but their heart, is far from HIM?" Or would they "wholeheartedly" repent, and embrace The WORD of The LIVING GOD. And serve GOD, by serving our fellow man?" Yes, by bringing them into the knowledge of SALVATION, as best we can." For none of us, who truly Believe, wish to hear these WORDS spoken to us": And why do you call ME," LORD, LORD, and do not, do, what I say?" Through Mathew 10:16-20 HE says: "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. You will be brought before Governors and Kings for MY sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but The SPIRIT of your FATHER Who speaks in you. [Beloved, The SPIRIT of GOD, our FATHER, says: Every Soul is "Precious" to GOD!" So through Romans 10:13-17 HE assures us, saying: For "whoever calls on The NAME of The LORD shall be SAVED.." How then shall they call on HIM in Whom they have not Believed? And how shall they Believe in HIM of Whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach The GOSPEL of PEACE, who bring Good News of Good things." But they have not all obeyed The GOSPEL. For Isaiah says, "LORD, who has Believed our report?" So then FAITH comes by hearing, and hearing by The WORD of GOD. [Yes, FAITH comes by hearing, about the finished work of The Cross, of CHRIST JESUS OK
