(KJV.) JAMES 2:20-22
(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?
(22) Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
IN FAITH, IN TRUTH, INDEED!
Brethren, as believers, we have read in the scriptures, heard sermons about faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; however, what is faith? Faith is an emotional feeling, a judgment of guilt, or belief that something is true, real, hope that it will manifest sooner or later; there are few more definitions in the dictionary to referenced at any time; to have faith is not difficult as to practice faith; anyone can have faith in this world, believers have faith in our Father through Jesus Christ; Sorceries, also have faith in their evil spirits, and witcheries; in both spiritual worlds, faith is the key to manifest supernatural powers.
Biblically, the entire creation came into existence through the word, Jesus Christ; spoken out of our Father's mouth, therefore, the word from our Father's mouth, was faithful, forceful words to create all things of the heavens and earth, the entire universe; through connotations, our Father spoke all things into existence, except human being, which he physically formed out of dust of the field, in his own image, refer to Genesis 1:27; there existed another forceful power during creation, which is the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, with both our Father, the word, which was Jesus Christ, when our Father spoke his words, the Holy Spirit manifested accordingly, brought all things into physical existence.
Therefore, if we were created in the images of our Father, his breath of life moves within our mortal bodies; in the essence, we are miniature gods, the spirit of the word, live within our mortal bodies as well, we can, therefore, call things into existence with faith likewise; therefore, let us be careful of our spoken words, think carefully about things, before we utter them into existence, upon our lives and lives of others; we are powerful! on the other level of faith is works; for example, if we have faith in our innermost spirits, but does not speak faith out of our spirits to manifestations of our heart desires, we can not receive anything from Jesus Christ; another, example, if we receive revelations from Jesus Christ, but refuse to act upon his instructions, to receive his promises, our faith is in vain: Father Abraham was justified by faith when he obeyed our Father's instruction, to sacrifice his son Isaac, the child of promise upon the altar; if it was you and me, what will we do? This is a point to ponder on!
Accordingly, faith goes hand in hand with works to perfect the will of our Father, manifest blessings of the Holy Spirit; faith without works is lifeless faith; contrarily, faith with works is a perfect faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; therefore, if claimed to have faith in him, let us exemplify our faith by obiedence to his words, act upon instructions, do his will diligently, faithfully and love one another as ourselves: many times, we delay our blessings by going around the wilderness, simply because we lack faith to execute instructions from Jesus Christ into destinations of life; today, let us be encouraged not to fear, worry, but have faith, believe in Jesus Christ, experience his miracles. signs and wonders through faith all things are possible.
Dearly beloved, if we find ourselves in doubt of instructions from Jesus Christ, that maybe signs of lack of faith in him; let us pray to strengthen our faith, confirm his words through the spirits, know his will, execute his commandments; there is faith already implanted within our innermost spirits: it is never too late for believers to execute the god type of faith in this world; obey his words, trust him, and not lean on our own understandings, walk in righteousness, Father Abraham did, and was called the Friend of our Father; therefore, let us do the same, have faith in Jesus Christ, if we have received his instructions, rise up, with greater faith, without fear of foes, joyfully face the world, no weapon formed against believers shall prosper in this world, possess our possessions forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
