Those things spoken in secret and those things planned in secret will be revealed before they are put in motion.
They will be declared from the housetops for all to see and hear and the hand of the Lord will bring righteousness from the heavenlies and His Light will raise up those righteous ones to remove the wickedness. Angels of the Lord, I release and loose you to go and reveal the truth and set people free– to bring justice to this nation and other nations who have been brought under bondage by the wicked ones. Silence the terrany by the righteous indignation of God’s people. Bring light to all who hear the words of the Lord. (more…)
Faith is the noun from the Greek verb ‘pisteuo’, which is usually translated as ‘believe’. It means to be fully convinced of something – to know without any doubts. So if you have doubts, then you are not believing or exercising faith. Anything that does not give you the total assurance of God’s provision and answers to your prayer is not faith at all. It is simply very strong hope at the best. And if you think that living that way is going to bring results, then you are going to fall flat on your face.
No, living by faith is not something that only certain people do in special circumstances; it is the way we should all be living. In fact, it is the way the Lord has commanded us to live. “The just shall live by faith,” says the Word. Don’t you think it is time you learned what faith is and how to obtain it, so that you can start living by it?
Greater is He who is in me than he that is in the world.
Father God, in your deepest love You so delighted in the sons of men, that though they continually committed disobedience against You, You sent your only Son, Jesus the Christ, from heaven to this earth, to be born in the likeness of the sons of men, in my likeness, a human being, so that the just penalty of my disobedience, my sinful nature, would rest upon Him, and His righteousness and life would abide in those who chose to believe in your Son. It is this great work of grace in the person of Jesus Christ that your Word has clearly revealed to me, and I trust in the Lord of creation who is now my Redeemer and Sustainer, and I know I am saved from eternal damnation by your grace through this faith that Your Son has given me, and I know that I will live forever with the You, the Living God. (John 3:16)
Everyone knows that on going into the Battle of Trafalgar, Lord Nelson hoisted at his masthead the signal, “England expects every man to do his Duty.” That sentence has been memorable ever since.
I suppose that this expectation is not confined to any one Nation, but rather every country cherishes the same expectation from its subjects. I am quite certain that the General of the Salvation Army expects every Soldier in its ranks will do his duty to his Saviour, to his Flag, to his Principles, to his Country, to his Saviour, and to a Dying World.
When people want to be seen as “experts”, simple is never good enough. To be an expert, you must know more than the average person. If something is very simple, there is not much need for an “expert”. The breeding ground for confusion is when “experts” can take a very simple thing and make it complicated. As a matter of fact, the more complicated it can be made, the more you “need” the experts. Once the general population has been convinced of how complicated a matter is, they can easily be manipulated by a few “experts”. This is called “guaranteeing job security”. Now let’s get back to the specific topic at hand, Christianity.
