Power Of Faith
Power of Faith – Faith is the best tool that must be utilized if you want to manifest your desires. Without faith, neither you get any success nor any experience of success in any area of life. It is only faith by keeping it you can fulfill your desire even in the hardest days. Thats why I want to talk about it today.
Noah spent 120 years time for building an ark – all because he trusted in God’s promise to destroy everything on the earth with a flood. During that time, all neighbors of Noah laughed at him. But Noah did not change his mind after getting the bitterly behaviour of the people. Like Noaha, would your faith have survived such a test of time and hardest day?
You can have that kind of faith. Unfortunately, some of you don’t clearly understand what faith is or how to put it into practice.
The Power of Faith will help you to make strong in your confidence in God’s promises. And it will prepare you for those times when the Lord calls upon you to move mountains.
The doubter fails to place his trust in God who is powerful to save. The Calvinists fails to recognize the role God has ordained for your faith to play in keeping saved.
Now if you left out the words “through faith” then it would all be up to God. But faith is the right human response to God’s grace and power. We must not leave out the prescribed human response. If we leave your faith then you also leave God’s protection.
You in his fleshly body through death, in order to present yourself before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach — if indeed you continue in the faith firmly established and steadfast, and not moved away from the hope of the gospel that you have heard, which was proclaimed in all creation under heaven, and the earth, made for His Minister by God.
Note the very emphatic “if indeed” as underlined above in these verses. There are no substitutes and no exceptions. We must “continue in the faith” and we must not be “moved away from the hope of the gospel” to find ourselves presented “holy and blameless” before God.
Recall confidence like Paul had, but it was based on God’s willingness and power to save him as well as Paul’s own faithfulness in living (Bible, 2 Timothy 4:7,8; 18). Likewise, as you have seen, Jude’s confidence was also based on continued faith, and was not without the understanding that it was possible to fall away and be lost (Bible, Jude 1: 20,21) You must put your trust in the Lord who can save you certainly. (Bible, Jude 1: 24).
