FAITH AND ETERNAL LIFE
Tect: 1John 5:11-13; Romans 12:3
If you’re born again, you have the God-life in you. It is called “eternal life “. It is the same kind of life God has and lives by. 2Timothy 1:10 calls it “life and immortality “.
FAITH NOT THE FLESH!
Eternal life works by faith. So you make eternal life of no effect when you live according to the flesh instead of by faith. Romans 8:8 says that those who live according to the flesh cannot please God. But Hebrews 11:6 tells us that those who live by faith can.
That is why as a Christian who has received the gift of eternal life, if you despise faith, if you have no respect for the life of faith, you will suffer in this world of satanic operations!
See what 1Timothy 1:19-20 says: “Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have suffered shipwreck… ”
THE GOD-KIND OF FAITH
The greatest wisdom at the believer’s disposal for a good life on this earth is the wisdom of faith. Hebrews 11:2 says, “by it the elders obtained good testimonies (good reports).
No wonder Jesus said to his disciples (who were in awe, looking at the fig tree that had died at Jesus’s say so), “Have faith in God.” That is, “Have the God-kind of faith “. Why? Because it takes the God-kind of faith to live the God-kind of life! That’s the only kind of faith that never fails; that’s the only kind of faith that God and everything else respects.
If your faith is not the God-kind of faith it can fail in the face of any challenge -even with eternal life and all of God in you! Jesus said to Peter, “But i have prayed for you that thy faith fail not.. “
Hebrews 11 shows us a formidable record of men and women who all lived the supernatural life in this world of natural men – by faith!
I tell you faith is a must, if the supernatural is your desire. Rituals, connections, astral travels and occultism won’t take you there!
DON’T LIVE A DEFEATED LIFE!
There’s no point living a defeated life here on this earth full of God’s riches freely to enjoy, and going to heaven to tell stories of woe! Nobody will listen to you! You must make it here struggle-free, stress free, fully advertising the full colour of Christianity, and fully advertising the stuff the new creation in Christ is made of… in Jesus name!
