Faith in [YAHWEH]: “It does not make things easy, but it makes them possible.”
Faith in YAHWEH: To BELIEVE in what you cannot see, knowing that it is TRUE based off of past/ current ***evidence that God/ His promises are REAL.
*** answered prayers
*** miracles are real if you just open your heart to pay attention and start using your minds that God gave you( and stop zoning out completely being high and drunk and gone).
*** your beating heart
*** the trees, ocean, sky
*** actual found archaeological evidence ( dead sea scrolls, historic evidence of Jesus, apostles, etc.)
*** A.D. anno domini the year of our Lord ( deemed by emperor Constantine to keep track of our calendar time based off Christs first coming to Earth.)
Amos 5:16-27New King James Version
The Day of the Lord
16 Therefore the Lord God of hosts, the Lord, says this:
“There shall be wailing in all streets,
And they shall say in all the highways,
They shall call the farmer to mourning,
(A)And skillful lamenters to wailing.
17 In all vineyards there shall be wailing,
For (B)I will pass through you,”
Says the Lord.
18 (C)Woe to you who desire the day of theLord!
For what good is (D)the day of the Lordto you?
It will be darkness, and not light.
19 It will be (E)as though a man fled from a lion,
And a bear met him!
Or as though he went into the house,
Leaned his hand on the wall,
And a serpent bit him!
20 Is not the day of the Lord darkness, and not light?
Is it not very dark, with no brightness in it?
21 “I(F) hate, I despise your feast days,
And (G)I do not savor your sacred assemblies.
22 (H)Though you offer Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings,
I will not accept them,
Nor will I regard your fattened peace offerings.
23 Take away from Me the noise of your songs,
For I will not hear the melody of your stringed instruments.
24 (I)But let justice run down like water,
And righteousness like a mighty stream.
25 “Did(J) you offer Me sacrifices and offerings
In the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
26 You also carried [a]Sikkuth[b] (K)your king
And Chiun, your idols,
The star of your gods,
Which you made for yourselves.
27 Therefore I will send you into captivity(L)beyond Damascus,”
Says the Lord, (M)whose name is the God of hosts.
Amos 9:8-15New King James Version
9 “For surely I will command,
And will [a]sift the house of Israel among all nations,
As grain is sifted in a sieve;
(C)Yet not the smallest [b]grain shall fall to the ground.
10 All the sinners of My people shall die by the sword,
(D)Who say, ‘The calamity shall not overtake nor confront us.’
Israel Will Be Restored
11 “On(E) that day I will raise up
The [c]tabernacle of David, which has fallen down,
And [d]repair its damages;
I will raise up its ruins,
And rebuild it as in the days of old;
12 (F)That they may possess the remnant of (G)Edom,[e]
And all the Gentiles who are called by My name,”
Says the Lord who does this thing.
13 “Behold, (H)the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“When the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
And the treader of grapes him who sows seed;
(I)The mountains shall drip with sweet wine,
And all the hills shall flow with it.
14 (J)I will bring back the captives of My people Israel;
(K)They shall build the waste cities and inhabit them;
They shall plant vineyards and drink wine from them;
They shall also make gardens and eat fruit from them.
15 I will plant them in their land,
(L)And no longer shall they be pulled up
From the land I have given them,”
Says the Lord your God.
God CANNOT/ IS COMPLETELY INCAPABLE OF/IS TOO PERFECTLY HOLY TO: break his promises, but us as humans have so little patience these days we cannot even wait two extra seconds in a fly-by McDonalds drive-thru serving up super-fast-flubber, without honking at someone like we’re about to shoot diarrhea out or something; let alone do most choose to grow in patience to obey and be still in God, waiting on Him and His promises ( it’s not good at all).
Find God, really find God with your heart. If you can sin, and you actually know you’re sinning, and at the same time you say you love God, please do not do that to yourself, this is not a ‘Oh I will kick myself thing, when Christ comes and I didnt take it that seriously.’
This is ETERNAL life vs. forever gone.
Find God now, seek Him, and obey Him by praying and fighting over temptation, as though your life depends on it, because it does. God does give grace and His Spirit to those that earnestly seek Him.
‘It will not make things easier, but it will make them possible.’
Watch the movies : ‘The Secretariat’ & ‘War Room’ to better understand.
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps- Proverbs 16:9
God ultimately makes all final decisions, on what an outcome willl be, for the holiest of reasons.
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own- Matt. 6:34
We can make plans, but we should never worry ourselves to death, because we still never know what a day may bring.
God has never once broken His promises, He is not going to now, He cannot. So since His Word is THE TRUTH, we know what path we should be choosing to get on, NOW.
