How? By Faith…

2 June, 2010

While waking up this morning, God had me do a ‘roll and read’ (one Bible is by my bed 🙂 ) Hebrews to Jude – and wow!

Really, I’ve been a believer for at least 28 years (though not always living it – ‘for all have sinned’…) and just lately, more and more revelations – (you know that old thought: ‘oh you know that verse…skip on down’? – Well I didn’t do that this time…) have been opening up…

First, a little pic to show what’s happening in the Spirit realm – read the book of Ruth (the only book specifically pertaining to the church, IMHO) and how she ‘stayed with Naomi – her mother in law, till the wheat harvest was also done (should be before summer June 21, biblically speaking) and then she and Boaz were married…this winnowing was also done at ‘night when the winds picked up’…possibly even relating a time period when OUR kinsman redeemer comes to claim His bride? :

the wheat harvest

Anyway, I felt really impressed to stay on this ‘Faith track’, because I really believe that the body of Christ really needs a boost! Too many preachers are talking about how to make Christians’ life on earth more easy (the ‘prosperity message’) instead of teaching about the believers’ inheritence …we should have some sort of ‘heavenly account’ – but that’s another post…let that rabbit run for now 😉

The only way every person can get this ‘boost of Faith’ is through TIME, TIME (and prayer) in the SCRIPTURES, (and PEACE and quiet – so if you have small kids, ya’ gotta MAKE time – trust me 🙂 ) so the Holy Spirit can speak, teach and lead us into all righteousness, via Yeshua’s (Jesus’s) blood! This in turn – the washing of our minds with the word on a daily basis is the way to stay “filled’ with the Spirit of God and not the spirit of this world… especially in this ‘midnight hour…’

SO, I felt the need to just post Hebrews 11 for our daily bible study today – I’m sure someone out there needs this, or I wouldn’t post it…(but if you can read all of Hebrews, in context) ‘It be mo’ betta’, bra!’ (love y’all in Hawaii!!)

(King James Version)

Hebrews 11

1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2For by it the elders obtained a good report.

(are these the elders in Revelations?)

3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

4By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

5By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

(OOH by faith a RAPTURE happened!!! God rewards those that diligently seek Him, so…there ya’ go)

6But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

7By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

(not a rapture, per se, but protection from judgement (and that’s what ‘The Trib’ is…)

8By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

9By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

12Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.

13These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

14For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.

15And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.

16But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.

17By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

18Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:

19Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

20By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.

21By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

22By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

23By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king’s commandment.

24By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

25Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

26Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

27By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

28Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

29By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

30By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.

31By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

32And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

33Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.

34Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

(fightin’ aliens allright!! 😉 heh – the battle is the Lord’s remember – and faith in Him, not our guns... I am a sci-fi buff) but be ready for this…

35Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

36And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

37They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

38(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

39And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

40God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. (emphasis mine – Jesus’ redemption)

All right boys and girls 😉 here is our study for today – even if we undergo persecution for standing up to ‘the lawless ones’, using our FAITH in God’s promises (and ya’ gotta be FILLED with the Holy Spirit…unlike the 5 foolish virgins in the parable) to us, we can be sure that we will be with Him forever!!

Also IF you have time please continue to Hebrews 13:6, as the scriptures are more congruent in context, and speak VOLUMES of Faith! And FAITH (YVWH’s script) not FEAR (the NWO’s script), is how we please God!

Remember we all have time to use our Faith – without ANY proofs provided by God. But the time will come when there will be ‘proof’ (after the rapture), but it will be hard to find faith…let’s use our time wisely 🙂

Cheers!
