Walking By Faith!

“For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7)

Today, more than ever we (those in relationship with God) need to know that our journey in this life on earth is a “faith walk” and we must not be moved by those things we see or hear.

We must believe, without doubt, that God’s Word is truth and He will do all He said He would do–for those who believe and to those who do refute His Word.

We must believe, without doubt, that we must obey God rather than man who is fickle and foolish in their philosophical misunderstanding of God’s intent for mankind.

We must believe, without doubt, that all who oppose God will meet the end of their doings and they and Satan will be exposed for all the world to see–who they really are–the anti-Christ.

We must believe, without doubt, that we who hold firm to all we know about God and His intent for our being on earth, will reap the benefits of promoting a true Gospel and that God will be glorified.

We must believe, without doubt, that we can continue our walk with Jesus in a right relationship and know victory in the name of Jesus--Faith--overcoming any doubt about God and overruling the lack of wisdom of men.

“Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might,” moving forward to the end of this battle and knowing that in the end, we who hold firm and steadfast in our faith, will be victorious over the evil that Satan has influenced in others. Our end and eternity are assured by our walk in faith of God’s goodness, and His justice, not man’s.

Who is Despised?

When I read scripture; especially Old Testament passages, I see when God has deliberately considered some people to be despicable.  How do I know?

Whenever those who “followed” God were told to kill off entire tribes or nations–He did so because He despised (hated) what those tribes or nations were doing.  He hated their idolatry (their worship of things more than Him); He hated their sacrifices to their man-made gods; He hated their promiscuous behavior (of a sexual nature, with whomever they pleased); and more than anything else, He hated their ability to influence those whom He had chosen to call His own (which is why He wanted them dead).

I am not advocating the demise of anyone; especially because of hatred.  What I am promoting and encouraging is for all to take a second look–removing the veils of bias–at what is occurring in our society today.  Are we yet doing some of the same things that God hates?  Are we yet influencing people to do what God has told us specifically not to do?  Are we setting ourselves up to be despised?  If so, who are you more concerned with-God despising us or man?

I have often been accused of many things–being intolerant and a number of other things simply because I attempt to live a Christian Life as God defines it; not man.  Looking at what is constantly confronting those of who do believe what God says and make every attempt to do Life as He wants us to do it, I see that Christians (true Christians) are more despised by man.  Who would you rather have despising you?

I’ve made a decision and I’m not concerned whether people like it or not.  Man/woman can despise me for what I believe until the day they drop off the face of the earth.  I will proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and all that entails to the glory of God and I will not incur the wrath of God by condoning what people do–trying to be politically correct.  I’d rather be Godly righteous than politically correct any day of the week and for those who have a problem with it–the problem is theirs and theirs alone.  My mind is made up!  I will not be despised by God in order to “get along” with man.  Hallelujah for all who are willing to stand on the Lord’s side!
