The 'Faith' Video

One of the most enlightening verses in the Bible helping to explain the true meaning behind the phrases “Faith (believing) in God” or “Faith (believing) in Jesus” was written by the Apostle Paul in his letter to the church at Galatia: “FAITH which WORKETH by LOVE” (Galatians 5:6).  Oh, how I long for people to understand this simple and powerful truth: If you do not love through your daily thoughts, words, and deeds … YOU DO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD! ... You have NO FAITH in Him! ... Nor do you believe in Jesus!  Listen, you need to understand "God IS love"; thus, it’s impossible to say you “believe in love (God)” when you don’t love.  Do you see?  And what are the thoughts, words, and deeds of love?  Friend, they are totally and completely encompassed in the 10 Love Commandments – e.g. you don’t steal, you give; you don’t murder (hate), you forgive; you don’t lie, you speak truth, and on and on with each of them.

So when you read in the Bible “we are saved (or will obtain eternal life) by our FAITH”, please understand what this means: It means your ‘daily deeds of love (keeping of the 10 Love Commandments)’ is what will save you, for that is YOUR duty in obtaining eternal life!  This is what Paul meant when he wrote: “fight the GOOD fight of FAITH, lay hold on eternal life” (I Timothy 6:12).  And this is also what he meant when he wrote: “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling" (Philippians 2:12).  If you understand this, you can then perfectly understand Jesus' answer when asked, “Good Master, what good thing shall I DO, that I may have eternal life?" (Matthew 19:16).  And he said, "if thou wilt enter into life, KEEP THE (10 LOVE) COMMANDMENTS" (Matthew 19:17).  See?  He was really just saying, “Prove you have faith in God, by your works of love!"

On November 18, 2010 (one year ago, yesterday) I uploaded a very poignant video explaining what it means to have soul-saving FAITH in God.  I hope you will find time to watch.

In Christ’s love,

  1. Love it brother! Sabbath peace 8-)

  2. Amen sister! Oh how Satan is using this powerful word in a deceiving matter to wins souls and cause much confusion in this world. Faith is truly MUCH MORE than acknowledgement of Jesus' existence and works. You hit the nail right on the head brother! You must be a carpenter or something... ;)
