"CALAMITY IS STRIKING THE ENEMIES OF ALMIGHTY GOD"
Heavenly Father, creator of the heavens and the earth, thank you. Thank you for all of your many blessings on the earth, which are ours through Christ Jesus. Fill us with Your Spirit, and let us always speak Your words and not our own. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
These are great times God's children are coming into, if we persevere and remain steadfast in Him until the end [of this event in God's Plan].
Click here, here, and here, to see God's Word to me 2020 through present about sin, death and destruction, but, most importantly, God's forgiveness for the obedient.
Obedience is obeying God, which is not merely saying, "Lord, Lord." In other words, not just saying, I believed in you Lord, Jesus, but he that actually does the will of the Father in heaven. Matthew 7:21-23
Again, broken record incoming, but the will of the Father in heaven is that, yes, we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, so that through Him, we show our repentance, or turning away from sin, by living changed lives in obedience to God. By so doing, God's Light can shine through us, and cause all men everywhere to come to worship, and give all glory, to the One True God, as it is written.
God's Will, will be done, and even the demons know it:
"And they [the demons] screamed out, 'What business do we have [in common] with each other, Son of God? Have You come to torment us before the appointed time [of judgment]?'" Matthew 8:29
Jesus answered the tempter, Satan, ". . . Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." Matthew 4:3-4
He also said, "For it is not those who merely hear the Law [as it is read aloud] who are just or righteous before God, but it is those who [actually] obey the Law who will be justified [pronounced free of the guilt of sin and declared acceptable to Him]." Romans 2:13
FAITH AND WORKS, WORKS AND FAITH
Faith and Works
14 "What is the benefit, my fellow believers, if someone claims to have faith but has no [good] works [as evidence]? Can that [kind of] faith save him? [No, a mere claim of faith is not sufficient—genuine faith produces good works.]
15 If a brother or sister is without [adequate] clothing and lacks [enough] food for each day,
16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace [with my blessing], [keep] warm and feed yourselves,” but he does not give them the necessities for the body, what good does that do?
17 So too, faith, if it does not have works [to back it up], is by itself dead [inoperative and ineffective].
18 But someone may say, “You [claim to] have faith and I have [good] works; show me your [alleged] faith without the works [if you can], and I will show you my faith by my works [that is, by what I do].”
19 You believe that God is one; you do well [to believe that]. The demons also believe [that], and shudder and bristle [in awe-filled terror—they have seen His wrath]!
20 But are you willing to recognize, you foolish [spiritually shallow] person, that faith without [good] works is useless?
21 Was our father Abraham not [shown to be] justified by works [of obedience which expressed his faith] when he offered Isaac his son on the altar [as a sacrifice to God]?
22 You see that [his] faith was working together with his works, and as a result of the works, his faith was completed [reaching its maturity when he expressed his faith through obedience].
23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and this [faith] was credited to him [by God] as righteousness and as conformity to His will,” and he was called the friend of God.
24 You see that a man (believer) is justified by works and not by faith alone [that is, by acts of obedience a born-again believer reveals his faith].
25 In the same way, was Rahab the prostitute not justified by works too, when she received the [Hebrew] spies [messengers] as guests and protected them, and sent them away [to escape] by a different route?
26 For just as the [human] body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works [of obedience] is also dead."
Context is everything in God's Word, and verses that are together should usually be considered in the same context. In v's. 18 and 19 above, James is pointing out that even the demons have faith in One God and tremble or shudder, "so faith [in One God] without works [of obedience to God] is also dead." v. 26 above.
"Works of obedience," not works of good deeds, but works of obedience to God, which, of course, include works of good deeds, but, also, works of obedience to God's call to repent, turn away from sin, awaken to righteousness and His purpose or plan for your life.
Are you listening to God's call? Many hearts will be healed, bandaged and revived now, and on the third day, raised with Christ in the clouds Hosea 6:1-3, but many others will be hardened forever.
Awaken! Awaken from your spiritual complacency. Romans 13:11
DO'S AND DO NOTS FOR 'SURVIVING' GOD'S PLAN
There are many other 'Do Nots,' but if you are doing the 'Do's,' then you do not need to worry about the 'Do Nots,' because all is fulfilled by the doing of the 'Do's.'
Hallelujah. Praise God. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
Faithful and humble servant to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
