Remain Steadfast In The Faith

“God is not a man, that He should lie: neither the Son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and He hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. (Numbers 23:19-20)

I am thankful for the unchanging commandments of God and for His continue love in our constantly changing world. In Hebrews 13:8, we are told Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. Therefore, I am standing firm in the faith, and striving for perfection to receive my crown of life, in His prepared place for prepared people. “For you know the way to the place where I am going? (John 14:1-4)

Would you tell the pilot that your destination route is better? No!

Would you tell the surgeon how to perform your surgery? No!

Would you tell the educators that you do not agree with their lesson plans? No!

Above are some examples of us not telling secular experts how to do their jobs. We would not deviate from their instructions to meet our personal objectives. So, why do we deviate from the Word of God?

FINAL THOUGHT

We know God cannot lie and the objective of Jesus’ blood was for the remission of sins to get us from earth to glory. Sadly, many add and subtract from the Scriptures to fit their own objectives and personal gain. The following Scriptures tells us what to expect when we do not follow God’s Word as it is written: Deuteronomy 4:2 & 12:32; Jeremiah 26:3; Ecclesiastes 3:14; Revelation 22:18-19.

IT IS FINISHED! At all cost we must remain steadfast in the faith knowing “We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. (Hebrews 3:14)

If you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant. Now I rejoice in what I am suffering for you, and I fill up in my flesh what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions, for the sake of His body, which is the church (Colossians 1:23-24)

  1. Truly, we are not forward when it comes to letting professionals do their jobs but for God, it seldomly looks like we grow impatient. I love your analogy Mrs Tangie and when next I’m in doubt, I’ll remind myself of this.

    Thanks! And Compliments of the Season!!!

  2. Great blog. Our main objective should be to do the things that will assure us a home in Heaven. We can look forward to that because He who promiseed cannot lie. It is a guarantee for us if we are obedient and remain faithful until the end.
