Faith: Complete Trust and complete Belief in our Lord of all the earth.

Joshua 3:13: NKJV:  And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who bear the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, that the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off, the waters that come down from upstream, and they shall stand as a heap.

 

As most rivers of the earth overflow with the seasons of the year, this was the time of the spring harvest flood of the Jordan (Verse 15). This parting of the waters again demonstrated the mighty miracles and power of our Lord in parting the Red Sea as the children’s fathers witnessed 40 years earlier (Exodus 14-22). These children represented the transition from the land of slavery into the land of promise. They had seen the glory of the Lord for nearly 20 years in the wilderness and allowed to enter the Promised Land by faith which was lacking in their fathers. The doors are still open to all people of the earth who are willing to step out in faith as the obstacles of this evil world are removed. Alas, true faith in this age rarely exists!

 

1 Corinthians 13:13: And now abide faith, hope, love, these three: but the greatest of these is love.  ** Our Lord God never intended for HIS children, then and now to be a failure if true faith exists within their soul. ** Matthew 17:20: So Jesus said to them: Because of your unbelief (teachers of the law then and now); for assuredly, I say to you, If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. ** Until the first resurrection, the mountain Christ Jesus is talking about is the mountain of failure caused by hate which causes frustrations which are all sins against our Creator.  Faith begins by walking exactly as our Lord of the Earth walked during HIS short human life in this evil world. Few of the children in this age walk as HE walked for what HE was trained to do from a child.

 

Luke 2:40-42: And the Child (Messiah, Christ Jesus) grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him. His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. And when HE was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom (a custom commanded for all believers with true faith *Exodus 23:14-15) of the feast. ** Most of the world does not desire to set their sights as high as the Messiah intended. ** John 14:12: Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in ME, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to MY Father. ** This greedy self-centered world continues to follow the crowd and blind teachers of this age. Instead of walking exactly as Christ walked, they make up their own rules and holidays and ignore most of the Holy Commandments of love (Exodus, chapter 20, Leviticus 23:2-41). Disbelief continues along a rapidly increasing path of hate and destruction that chooses eternal death instead of life within the soon coming Kingdom.

 

Joshua 3:7: And the Lord said to Joshua: This day I will begin to exalt you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. ** As a witness to the glory and power of the Lord for more than 40 years beginning in Egypt, Joshua followed the love of God. He knew unbelief by failure to follow all HIS instructions would result in death as the millions that died in the wilderness because of unbelief (Hebrews 3: 16-19 & Hebrews 4:4-6).

 

Hebrews 4:11-14: Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and powerful, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. And there is no creature hidden from HIS sights, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to who we must give account. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. ** Without developing faith by setting aside time each day to pray to our Father in Heaven to confess our sins and pray for those who have wronged you (Matthew 6:12).  We must also ask for strength from the Spirit of God to help us keep all HIS commandments of love. Sadly, this evil world continues to follow the crowd in worshiping the temporary god of this world, the devil, to do as he wishes. The wishes of the devil that is the adversary of our Lord God, is completely opposing to HIM.  The devils wishes are to cause sickness, pain, sorrow, destruction and death forevermore.

 

Hope: With complete belief and trust in the God of all the earth we expect to win the prize. * See 1 Corinthians 13:13.

 

Psalm 42:5: Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted (lack of peace causing anxiety) within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise HIM for the help of His countenance (moral support for approval to make holy). ** We all know life is not easy even for Kings and Princes. The storm clouds constantly roar just over the horizon with sickness, pain, sorrow, and destruction. With hope, belief and trust in the God of all the earth we can expect peace beyond understanding** Philippians 4:7: And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

 

Love: Love by doing good to enemies and those that use and persecute you.

 

Matthew 5:44-45: But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for HE makes HIS sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. ** The gift of eternal peace can only come with the love of everyone as prescribed by Christ. The gift of hope for eternal peace can only come with complete belief and trust in the God of all the earth. The gift of faith can only come with complete trust and complete belief of the entire Holy Bible. The gift of life eternal can only come with sincere pleas for repenting, baptism immersion and asking the Lord your God to help you keep all HIS Holy Commandments and Feasts of love. 

 

 

Be blessed until we meet again!
