Deliverance Follows Obedience

Deliverance Follows Obedience
Prepare your heart to seek God for obedience that you may observe and do all that Christ has commanded through His holy apostles.
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent." (Zephaniah 3:9)

Is Your Faith IN Christ?

Do you know what takes faith outside of Christ?

Faith is not expecting a positive outcome… everybody hopes for the best. This is common to man not faith in Christ.

Faith is not reading and quoting scriptures… Satan knows the scriptures and quoted them to Jesus.

Faith is not prospering in the goods of this world. The people of the land of Canaan were prospering in a land flowing with milk and honey and yet the Lord set judgment against them

Faith is not in established authority among men, the Pharisees and Sadducees were respected pillars of their community and yet Jesus told them to have faith in God.
Faith is not hearing the voice of God, for God spoke to Cain and to Balaam but they did not obey His voice.

Faith is not in signs, wonders, and speaking of things that come to pass… for the Lord proves the heart for obedience to His plan. (Deuteronomy 13:1-3)

As Jesus said… I never knew you. (Matthew 7:20-23)

Abraham heard the voice of the Lord... and obeyed His voice and the Lord has called him the Father of Faith as one representing this pattern of humbling the will in obedience to the voice of God.

Is your faith IN Christ?
