FOR THE PROMISE THAT HE WOULD BE HEIR OF THE
WORLD WAS NOT TO ABRAHAM OR TO HIS SEED... BY THE LAW... BUT THROUGH THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF
FAITH.... ROMANS 4:13.
THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF FAITH!
quote righteousness of faith .. speaks very loudly to all pie in the sky ministers
that obedience is involved somewhere here. Genesis 22:3-9.
We don't have a Abraham that sat right where he was and remained there even after hearing
what God had said .. but we have a Abraham who did something that proved his faith was a
real and living one .. he followed Gods advice.
If you were to go to the writings of Genesis 22:1-18 and study the account of
this father of the faith every reader would have to say that unless he, Abraham went he
would not have been a man of faith, just a dreamer.
The promise is also to such as he/Abraham .. those who will follow after the voice and
commands of the living God/Jesus the Christ... John 8:31.
We so often hear the phrase .. by faith alone!.. and it sounds so easy, and even so small
a thing but what many don't know is that it is by faith alone that Lord Jesus was talking
about when He said ...
THE ROAD IS NARROW, DIFFICULT AND FEW BE THEY THAT PASS THEREBY AND WHY DO YOU CALL ME
LORD BUT YOU DO NOT DO THE THINGS-THAT I SAY?
Can you honestly imagine a man saying that he walks in righteousness or the way of the
holy God of Israel and does not obey the very same God???
Hence, the many who forever quote .. faith alone .. and think it means, head
space only and not action or a literal walking after the holy one/Jesus the Christ have a
need to check their doctrine.. lest they cry out Lord, Lord and the Lord does not hear
them or want to hear them...
All heirs must comply within the written will .. not any single heir of--the
particular will has any power or authority to change the will and we as saints have been
told about the conditions for obtaining the crown of life..
Let us read from 2 Timothy 2:1-10 .. my bible says clearly that that race of
faith has rules and conditions .. and if we do not compete accordingly we will no doubt be
disqualified. So .. faith alone .. is very big after all and not some passing
thought that enters our mind once a week or when it suits us to think in that way. Most of
the world is full of people who do many good deeds daily but all amounts to naught. But
few be they who truly have the righteousness of faith ... think about it ..
Righteousness of Faith!
