BEING JUSTIFIED BY FAITH

[Certainly there can be NO OTHER WAY OF SALVATION; because all have sinned, therefore we all must either be saved by faith through Christ Jesus, or we will stand before God in judgment. Therefore, our salvation, must be by faith; and faith anticipates his promise, and his promise hinges on Jesus Christ, the Son of our Abba Father’s love!] “…He [Jesus] was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification [the act of defending]. Therefore, since WE HAVE BEEN JUSTIFIED through faith, WE HAVE PEACE WITH GOD through our Lord Jesus Christ…” (Rom. 4:24-25, 5:1) [Our Abba Father has given us dominion over the great adversary of our souls, and over all his demons who, through his influence, attempts to destroy our peace and sabotage our minds!] “The God of peace WILL SOON CRUSH SATAN UNDER YOUR FEET. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.” (Rom. 16:20) [We must beware of the drunkenness of our senses, and drunkenness in our souls; we cannot be over anxious with the concerns and cares of this world. We must wakeup, and stay alert; be very watchful; never be off our guard; our enemy is seeking to destroy us!] “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO DEVOUR. RESIST HIM, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, WILL HIMSELF RESTORE YOU AND MAKE YOU STRONG, FIRM AND STEADFAST.” (1 Pet. 5:8-10) [We must seek our Abba Father’s face, get to know Him in a more intimate manner. Do this in the name of Jesus, by faith and prayer, and HE WILL DRAW NIGH TO US – he will meet us at our coming to Him. When a our soul sets out to seek God, God sets out to meet our soul; so that while we are drawing near to him, HE IS DRAWING NEAR TO US.] “But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.” SUBMIT YOURSELVES, THEN, TO GOD. Resist the devil, and HE WILL FLEE FROM YOU. Come near to God and he will come near to you…” (Jam. 4:6-8) [Our Abba Father loves us with such an awesome love that He:] “…gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.” (John 3:16)

Be blessed as you praise The Lord, knowing that WE WILL NOT PERISH BUT WE WILL HAVE ETERNAL LIFE!
