Regarding Faith

10/11/10 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear (Regarding faith and healing)

Thus says The Lord: Faith is believing, I AM WHO I AM, and that I am able to perform it. Faith can by no means be attained, nor can one grab hold of it by human means. For there are works done without faith, which are dead, and a faith which has works, which is also dead. Yet your faith came by My works, which enable you to believe, I AM WHO I AM. And all good works, which come forth from you, are My works also.
Therefore, if one is to be healed in accordance with My will, that same one must surrender to Me and My will, making no effort to increase their faith by human power as a means to a desired end. Rather they acquiesce, knowing that all things will be done in their proper time and season, according to the love of their Father in Heaven, doubting nothing.
For there can be no genuine faith apart from Me. For without My spirit coming to dwell in a man, his faith will not last; lo, it is dead already. Whether his faith is shown by many clever words and practiced speeches, or by seemingly righteous acts performed in the sight of many witnesses, I tell you the truth, it has no life in it! For faith of this kind has no root, a mere outward sign built upon a false foundation of man-made laurels and great pretense... A tree easily toppled, a house built upon the sand, says The Lord.

7/17/06 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"For one whose trust in The Holy One is complete, nothing doubting, shall move mountains; indeed, nothing will be impossible for him.
Therefore hear and also understand, for it is written: You are gods, you are all children of The Most High. For you were created in My image, and brought forth from your mother’s womb. And now you are being remolded, born again in spirit and in truth; yea, even a third time when you come into glory, restored to life as at the first, blameless. Then will you truly know Me, for you shall see Me as I am.
If then you are born again of the Spirit, and the Spirit of God comes to live in you, and you ask anything in My name, shall it not be done for you? Indeed it shall be done speedily, in accordance with The Father’s will. Therefore, again I say to you, all those who live and breathe in Me, having received of My fullness, can do anything; nothing shall be impossible for them! For by unwavering trust and steadfast belief, man can walk on water. My son, these things I have already shown you. Or do you doubt My miracles because they were wrought through men? My servants were men like you, nothing more, nothing less, save this: They believed with steadfast, immovable faith, nothing doubting..."

10/14/10 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For The Lord’s Little Flock, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Beloved ones, before you depart My table, consider this: Where did your faith come from, and by what means was it authored? Be not quick to answer, but consider. For I tell you the truth, I am not the author of your faith, nor did your faith begin with Me. For I did not come forth to increase the faith you already have, nor have I spoken through all these Letters to affirm that which you have already accepted; no, I have come to tear down and to supplant.
Beloved, I am calling you out of that to which you have grown accustomed, to be separate from that which has until now been the author of your faith. For some of you your faith began in the churches of men, and for others it was molded and shaped by the world, yet for most it was a combination of the two. Therefore I call you to see with greater eyes, with eyes like Mine. For I tell you the truth, your faith is against Me, even as the churches of men and this world are against Me, polluting My name and My glory without ceasing. For it is written: Friendship with the world is enmity with God; whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Therefore, I have poured out My spirit on all flesh in these last days, and by My prophet I have spoken; even by a multitude of words I have declared it. And thus I say it to you, once again: I shall tear down, uproot and destroy, supplant, until I have set all these crooked paths straight.


Thus I have called My people out, that they might
Come out from among them and be separate...

A people set apart for My name,
A people who keep The Commandments
And cease not from testifying to My glory,
A people of pure and undefiled faith...

A people joined unto ME...

Says The Lord.

8/25/05 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our God and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

"Do you long to obey? Then obey. Do you wish to stay clean? Then stay clean. Doubt is your enemy, doubt is a stone of stumbling at your feet. For I tell you the truth, one whose faith has come to completion, having received the full revelation of who I am, will not sin. For only the face of The Holy One is before their eyes.
Beloved ones, only One is without sin, The Son of Man. Yet the desire to sin is still within you and now also The Truth, and so the battle rages. Therefore, beware. For doubt leads to disobedience, and to disobey God is sin, and the penalty of sin is death. Yet I have overcome death, having written your name in the Book of Life from the very foundation of the world. What is left then? Only the death of sin itself, and the passing away of death."


Excerpt from: A Stone of Stumbling




Faith


When My servant no longer seeks to see with his eyes, nor hear with his ears, the fulfillment of those things written, then he will know his faith is near to completion, says The Lord. For one who must see with his eyes lacks trust, and one who has itching ears lacks understanding.


Yet the servant who truly believes
Is no longer bound by the need
For confirmation...

He seeks not after signs, nor does
He sit idle waiting for the news...

For his trust is complete,
His understanding full,
And he is at peace...

Walking in the ways of The Lord.


From: Faith




Mature Faith


Blessed are those who answer, “Yes, Lord”,
For their faith is revealed...

Blessed are those who pray, “Your will be done, Lord”,
For they have great trust...

Blessed are those who say, “Amen, Lord”,
At all times and in every season,
For they have understood...

Blessed are those who know,
I AM WHO I AM;
They shall have peace...

Says The Lord.


From: Mature Faith




Steadfast Faith


Blessed is the wise and faithful servant,
Who gives no thought to how they are
Perceived in the eyes of others...

For they obey My voice,
And are not dismayed by the looks
Of those who judge without knowledge...

Indeed, they seek only to please their Master,
Having no need of the approval of others...

Says The Lord.


From: Steadfast Faith




Faith Without Works Is Dead


Let all those who truly know Me
Proclaim My name first by their ways,
Then with their mouths...

For honor only spoken of is but wind,
The veil of the hypocrite who
Knows not where he is going,
Having no remorse
Over where he has been...

Says The Lord.


From: Faith Without Works Is Dead




Faith AND Works


What is faith without works?

Nothing, a lie spoken in vain.

And what of works without faith?

Vanity, a false good covering a heart
Which has turned from The Truth...

Says The Lord.

"Behold, I have set before you a stone of stumbling, over which many shall fall. I have called you into service, according to your faith. Indeed I have given you much, therefore much shall I require; and only a very few shall remain. And so that which was begun shall be finished..."
