Summary: By refusing to believe in the One Faith, you have dis-honored God, And likewise made an enemy.
One God. Part 2
We have seen in part 1, that God is self sufficient and has the ability to do as His will dictates. In Part 2 we will look at the second part of our message, One Faith. Eph 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,.
The Faith we speak of is in God and His word. We cannot serve God without believing in what God says is the Truth.
We all, at one time or another, have looked for a truth in our lives, searching and never being able to find any. In Romans 3:30, we see that faith is not just for the Jews but for all mankind, but in a different manner or direction, lets read and understand.
“Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.”
The circumcision by faith, is speaking of those that were under the Mosaic Law of circumcision, these people were only the Jews. “By”;“be conscious” or “be cognizant of” a thing.
Uncircumcision through faith,
Denotes those not of Jewish origin, the gentiles. “Through”, By means of; by the agency of; noting instrumentality. Then is it the same faith? Yes. We all, Jews and Gentiles must believe that God is and that He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him.This is only done through and by His Son Jesus. God will not hear the prayer of the lost or sinner, unless he is repenting of his sin, Jew or Greek. Isa 1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
Mic 3:4 Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them: he will even hide his face from them at that time, as they have behaved themselves ill in their doings.
Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Millions are calling upon a God that will not hear them. Multitudes in the valley of decision on weather to believe or not.
So without faith, it is imposable to serve, worship, speak or walk with God.
Then shall they cry unto the LORD, but he will not hear them, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear, Why?They are not of the Faith, One Lord, One Faith. They have behaved themselves ill in their doings. Without faith in Jesus the Christ, being the Son of God, Jehovah will not recognize nor hear them. This is the way it will be when it comes to judgment day.
Many shall say lord,Lord, haven’t we done this and that in your name? And the Answer will be; But he shall say, “I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.” Phi 3:2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. Here is the falling away from the Grace of God. Lack of Faith in the Son, dis-honoureing Him, there by dis-honoureing God.
John 5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father.
He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
By honoureing the Son, you believe in the Faith that He delivered to all mankind, to the Jew first and then the Gentile.The Faith is within the Gospel that was left to all of us.
John 8:49 Jesus answered, I have not a devil; but I honour my Father, and ye do dishonour me. By refusing to believe in the One Faith, you have dis-honored God, And likewise made an enemy.
John 8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth.
John 8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. If a man keep my saying, means having the faith that he delivered.
