We can believe in God and His Son but if we do not keep His commandment to have love for one another, then our faith in Him is not being made manifest in this earth. Can faith alone save a man that has no works of love? James 2:14 KJV (14) What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? No, because faith without the labor of love is dead being alone. Our continuous good works of love is a sign of our faith in Him. Our faith wrought with good works of love is made COMPLETE (perfect). Faith without works (the righteousness of God) is incomplete and dead. The good “works” are not ours but His righteousness that we work. James 2:17-22 KJV (17) Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. (18) Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. (19) Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. (20) But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? (21) Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? By works our faith is made complete.... (22) Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? There is therefore NOW no condemnation to them which are IN Christ Jesus who WALK NOT after the flesh but after the Spirit. This walk is continuous. The law of the Spirit of life IN Christ Jesus makes us free from the law of sin and death. This is a here and NOW thing. He has rendered mortal death idle…NOW …and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel (the good news) of which we are to hear and believe in. Romans 8:1-2 KJV (1) There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (2) For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. If Christ is IN us, the body is dead because of sin but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. Romans 8:10-14 KJV (10) And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead DWELLS in us (continuously), He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also make ALIVE (NOW) our mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in us. Jesus WAS dead and is ALIVE NOW. He triumphed over death already and so we are to also in the here and now in Christ Jesus. (11) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. (12) Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. If we are led the Spirit of God by mortifying the deeds of the body, we shall live….NOW. We shall have "eternal life" in the here and now. (13) For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. (14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. We are to have faith and DO GOOD unto ALL men…for if we continuously sow to the Spirit, then of the Spirit shall we reap an age-lasting life in the here and now. Galatians 6:7-10 KJV (7) Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. (8) For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. If we do not become weary in well doing, in due season we shall reap life “everlasting” if we faint not. Let us do good unto ALL men….especially unto them who are of the household of faith. (9) And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (10) As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith. If we always bear about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus (always abiding in Him), then the life also of Jesus will be made manifest in our MORTAL flesh…our bodies…in the here and now. This is the “daily” sacrifice we are to keep so that the life of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh and display the glory of God unto this dark, dying world. The life of Jesus within us shall appear outwardly. 2 Corinthians 4:10-11 KJV (10) Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. (11) For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. We are to present our mortal bodies as a LIVING sacrifice…..being holy and acceptable unto God. If we keep the “daily sacrifice” of Jesus, His life shall appear for the world to see. We are not to be conformed to this world of envy and strife where the flesh of all men are decaying away to the grave in their sins. Instead, we are to be TRANSFORMED into His image by the renewing of our minds so that we may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. We PROVE to the outside decaying world what it truly means to DO His will. Romans 12:1-2 KJV (1) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (2) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Why do we not see this now in the churches of carnal men? Because they are setting aside the commandment of God to have love for one another in order to keep their traditions and commandments of men which only cause envy and strife among His people. For since there is jealousy and strife among us, are we not fleshly, and are we not walking like mere men? If we sow after the flesh, then we shall die. We have no true works of God’s righteousness then if we walk after the flesh instead of continuously walking after the Spirit. Many are being led astray by false prophets who preach for money instead of working with their own hands to support their own necessities. Covetousness is the “abomination of desolation” that should not be named once among us as becoming saints. We are to be followers of God and not the false prophets who preach for false profits and lead many astray down the broad way to the destruction of the mortal body. Our mortal bodies are the temple of the Spirit of God. Those who destroy the temple of God by what they are preaching and leading many astray from the holy commandment to have love for one another are being destroyed themselves. They remove the keeping of the “daily” sacrifice in order for you to live according to their lusts….their hidden covetousness. We can not keep company with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous. We MUST COME OUT from among them and be separate. They WILL persecute us for leaving their company….but we are not to render evil for evil. We are to bless those who will curse us so that we shall inherit a blessing: eternal life….the life of Jesus being made manifest in our mortal flesh. 1 Peter 3:8-17 KJV (8) Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: (9) Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. He that will love life and see good days is the refrain his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit. (10) For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: (11) Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. (12) For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. (13) And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? The churches of carnal men will not understand why we shall no longer run with them after their things as they will call us “evil doers”. But we are not to render evil for their evil. If we suffer for righteousness’ sake, then happy are we. (14) But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; We are to always sanctify the Lord God in our hearts and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks for the reason of the hope that is in us with meekness and fear. (15) But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: (16) Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. (17) For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. The world does not recognize us yet as the sons of God. It does not appear what we are to them….yet. 1 John 3:1-3 KJV (1) Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. But it will be manifest to the world who we are as the life of Jesus shall appear in our mortal flesh giving us “eternal life”. (2) Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. Every man that has this hope in Him purifies himself even as He is pure. (3) And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. The path of the just is as the shining light that shines more and more unto the perfect day. we are transformed into His image. Proverbs 4: (18) But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness as they do not know at what they stumble. (19) The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. We are to hear the words of the Lord whose words are life and spirit. (20) My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. We are to keep His words of life and spirit. They are LIFE unto those that find them and health to all of our flesh. His life shall appear in our mortal flesh which shall prove to this dark world what it means to do His will. (21) Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. (22) For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. (23) Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. We are to make straight paths for the Lord and not respond in evil toward what we hear. We are to refrain our tongues from evil and speak no deceit....handling the Word of God deceitfully as a cover for covetousness. (24) Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. (25) Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. (26) Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. (27) Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. We are to walk in love….keeping the “daily “ sacrifice …as Christ love us and has given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. Ephesians 5:1-11 KJV (1) Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; (2) And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. But covetousness should not be once name among us as becoming saints. When we see the “abomination of desolation” where it ought not be, we are to flee from it. It should not be in our hearts. It should not be in the company we keep in the churches of men. We must depart from among them and be separate from those who call themselves “brothers” but are covetous. (3) But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; (4) Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. No covetous man…who is an idolater….has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. They are perishing from off this earth as their mortal bodies are decaying away to the grave without the life of Jesus being made manifest in their mortal flesh. (5) For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. (6) Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. We are to not be partakers with them. We are to be LIGHT in the Lord and walk as children of light. (7) Be not ye therefore partakers with them. (8) For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (9) (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth (10) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. (11) And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. In nature, it is said that the clock will slow down if one travels in a spaceship that approaches the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) relative to a person who stays still on the earth. If we are in the Light with Him who is the LIGHT, then we shall have eternal life so that we may prove to this world what is acceptable unto the Lord. Our "clocks" shall slow down as our lives are prolonged upon this earth when we walk in the Light with Him. Proverbs 3:1-6 KJV (1) My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: (2) For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. (3) Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: (4) So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man. (5) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (6) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
