Faith In Christ alone is God’s grace for today and forever.                       

 

First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for you all, that your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. (Romans 1:8)

{I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Galatians 2:20)}

 

(Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,) “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:”  By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:  Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ: To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 1:2-7)

 

For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the “righteousness of Godrevealed {Jesus Christ}from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. (Romans 1:16-17)

{from the natural Jew to being a spiritual Jew having Faith in God through Jesus Christ being found in Him and obeying His word.}

 

Grace is in {the only way to God the Father in Christ}  Law is out!

Believe or walk in law!   Believe in Christ or work your own self righteousness! Believe or walk in unbelief dead in the sin thereof loving the 10 commandments and self righteousness more than Christ.  Believe or Die!

 

Jesus Speaking:

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time [law], Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 

 

But I say unto you, {passing from Law to faith-outward to the inward}Thatwhosoever is angry” with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: ……and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.  (Matthew 5:21-22)

 

{For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God. I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. “I do not frustrate the grace of God”: for if righteousness come by the law, {or some self righteous works that I deem good, using the word of God, listing do’s and don’ts, and do feel justified rather than believing and standing in believing God at His word} then Christ is dead in vain. {In other words NO GRACE TO ME because I won’t exhibit faith in Christ alone frustrating the Holy Spirit of God-unbelief-not pleasing to God the Father-no rest of God} (Galatians 2:19-21)

 

God now, moving ahead to New Testament Grace in Christ alone, the GIFT of salvation to the world, God’s love to be as He is to all nations, anyone, requires faith, without any reservation nor backpedaling to law mindedness which is the remembrance of sin, guilt. The just shall {no maybe’s or butts}live by faith alone in Christ the lord and the only saviour to mankind not law mindedness or self righteous works of some kind.

 

If I am in Christ I do not want to sin and if temptation overcomes me I confess my sin and He is faithful to cleanse me from that sin that I hurt Him by, all of the guilt.

If I am in Christ I have fulfilled the law of do’s and don’t’s as long as I seek and thirst after God’s righteousness to please Him.

If I am in Christ I do not look to sin nor hate nor be unjust but to love God and my fellowman as myself even though it is not reciprocated to me. I love anyway because God shed His love in me, in my heart, has forgiven me, and I want to continue to be that way to give to others!

If I am in Christ I seek to believe and act out what He shows me to please God of Himself and His work of salvation to me.

If I am in Christ I am lead of the HOLY  Spirit of God and learning to do always those things that please Him for I do not seek to do the opposite.

If I am in Christ I believe in Him and Him alone to the glory of God. I seek not the honor of mankind or approval of mankind in any way. I am lead of His Holy Spirit into His word and truth, Joying and giving praise to God for the revelation of the Father and The Son within My spirit and heart by His Spirit and His word-truth-light-eternal life!

If I am in Christ I have an honest and sincere heart to live by His words to find His truth and light of life for me to follow Him. I have an open heart and ear to listen and to do His “word for me” cause He loves me and I have committed my heart and life to the loving Saviour, I believe who He is and what He says that He is sent of God the Father.

If I am in Christ I seek not a reputation to have the praise of mankind for my praise and honor comes from God only. I am of a humbled spirit [bowing to honesty and sincerity to have and love the truth of God to live it, in Christ, in being teachable and of a contrite spirit always, in faith in Christ believing Him at His word. Pride doesn’t have any room.]

 

Faith is Christ, the living word of God.

Faith is Christ’s word

Faith is Christ’s testimony

Faith is Christ’s death and resurrection

Faith is Christ’s life to the Believer

Faith is Christ’s example of God’s will

Faith is Christ’s absolute faith and confidence in God the Father.

Faith is Christ’s obedience to the will of God the Father as my example.

Faith is Christ’s love for His Father and His love for us.

Faith is Christ living and reigning and giving the saints the power of His name.

Faith is Christ’s redeeming grace to the believer, the saint of God.

Faith is Christ receiving by believing what He says He has done for the saint and will do.

Faith is Christ as High priest and door to be able to Cry “abba, Father”

Faith is Christ as the shepherd of our heart and soul as we seek Him to believe God.

Faith is Christ to give the Holy Spirit, [with tongues as a confession of faith in receiving Him] another gift from God to Christ, to the saint, a seal of God.

Faith is Christ, the new testament, SEALED IN HIS broken body and His blood one time for all people of all nations of all generations to the end of time-His coming.

 

God the Father has sent His Son, the gift of God, as well as law of O.T. faith, so the world would be saved and have a relationship with Him in all things. Law mindedness and self-righteousness has no place in the relationship with God in Christ the Lord. That is not Faith in Christ. Its not the righteousness of God. Faith is believing from the heart. Law mindedness of do’s and don’ts is of the flesh and only an outward cleansing, guilt and unbelief remaining in the heart. God looked at and winked at that for a time but now Requires, rightly and justly so, the just shall live by faith in Christ and Him alone, a gift of love to die for others so they may live not a substitution for a penalty. To do law mindedness is to turn to beggarly elements of the world and unbelief-no rest of God. Faith is the law of God in Christ now not works of the flesh, law, to feel justified. God has set all in Christ and faith in Him to please God the Father, not self righteousness nor the 10 commandments, which are for sinners not saints, justified of Christ, for all is fulfilled in Christ, being dead to the law of sin and death but alive in Him to “believe” not “work”.

 

Churches today “work” and don’t “believe” having not the power of God. No Faith in the Living Christ taught or lived! Christ, our High Priest and King, has resurrected and lives to continue, through His body, the spiritual Israel of God, which He is collecting over time out of all nations, the will of God He did on earth. That has not changed one bit.
