232. DO YOU BELIEVE?

(The Information & Edification Series – Batch 5)

Of Abraham’s FAITH in God and his word, whereby he believed whatever God said, that it was TRUE and how as a result of this, it was counted or accredited to him (Abraham) for righteousness, the Bible states:

  • “And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; BUT FOR US ALSO, TO WHOM IT SHALL BE IMPUTED, IF WE BELIEVE ON HIM THAT RAISED UP JESUS OUR LORD FROM THE DEAD; WHO WAS DELIVERED FOR OUR OFFENCES, AND WAS RAISED AGAIN FOR OUR JUSTIFICATION.” (Romans 4:22-25 KJV)

We too, though sinners, get to be clothed with God’s righteousness, WHEN WE BELIEVE HIS TESTIMONY OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, that he died a sacrificial death, though perfectly righteous, for the sins of the whole world but that God rose him up from the dead on the third day. “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God IN HIM.” (2 Corinthians 5:21 KJV)

“But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of FAITH, which we preach; That if thou shalt CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS, and shalt BELIEVE IN THINE HEART THAT GOD HATH RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man BELIEVETH unto righteousness; and with the mouth CONFESSION is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, WHOSOEVER believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For WHOSOEVER shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:8-13 KJV)

‘Whosoever’ means that God’s offer of salvation (justification/righteousness) by FAITH is available to ALL, without exception. ALL are invited to come to the Father, by his Son Jesus Christ.Jesus himself stated, “…I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE. No man cometh to the Father but BY ME.” (John 14:6 KJV)

Jesus died for your sins and mine but is alive, God having raised him from the dead. God has declared this in his Word, the Bible and he CANNOT lie. Do you believe God’s testimony of his Son? Believing is the only way for you and me to be justified (made perfectly righteous, acceptable, reconciled and in right standing with God).

Let not God’s GRACE GIFT, which is freely offered to all mankind, including you, go to waste. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16 KJV).

Will you choose everlasting life or condemnation and sure destruction? Jesus himself stated, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and BELIEVETH on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” (John 5:24 KJV)

Jesus is Lord over CREATION, Lord over our SUBSISTENCE WHILE HERE ON EARTH and Lord over DEATH, which he demonstrated that he triumphed over. Not even death could keep him in the grave. He was more powerful than it. We can therefore put our trust in Jesus for all three stages of life because as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, he is Lord over all.
