Walk by Faith (CW76)

    World War 3 is at Hand

While we wait for the fall and destruction of Iran to start World War 3, let's check our own Christian faith, doctrine and knowledge of Him and His words.

Perfection of our faith
James 2:22  Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?

There are three levels of faith, with the lowest being:

1. Seeing is Believing.
Men only believe what they see, including disciples of Jesus.
John 20:29  Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."

2. Not seen and yet Believe
1 Pet 1:6-9  In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith—the salvation of your souls.

3. Faith in His words and not sight
2 Cor 5:6-8  So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
    When we walk by faith and not by sight, we are spiritual and are no longer interested in our earthly lives but set our minds on the eternal future with the Lord.
Phi 1:21  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

Perfect Faith of Apostle Paul
Roman 8:37-39  Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
    With our faith perfected, we can overcome by rejecting the Antichrist on the mercy seat as god and discount all his signs and lying wonders as demonic.
