BLOG 62 THOUGHTS RETURN TO FAITH

BLOG 62 THOUGHTS RETURN TO FAITH
THINK ABOUT THIS: No matter what I talk about, it seems that my thoughts always return to faith.
My desire is the same: For Yahweh to give me simple ways to make us understand what faith is and how to use it in our everyday lives. In Hebrews 11:1 & 3, in the KJV, it reads, “Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Now faith means that we have full confidence in the things we hope for, it means being certain of things we cannot see. And it is only by faith that our minds accept as fact that the whole universe was formed by Yah’s command–that the world which we can see has come into being through what is invisible. Faith is like a muscle, if not used, it grows weak. The way to use faith in our lives is to always look to the scriptures and speak them instead of doubt and unbelief. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6, that it is impossible to please our Heavenly Father without faith. The man who approaches Yahweh must have faith in two things, first that Yah exists and secondly that He rewards those who search for Him. And then in Romans 14:23, we are told, “Everything that is not of faith is sin!” Therefore, we can see just how valuable faith is to Yah. So, then, faith must be very important to us if we desire to please Him. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Yahweh. Romans 10:17 Faith, you see, can only come from hearing the message, and the message is the Word of Yahshua. Yahweh gave the Word and great was the company that published it. Psalm 69:11 We are the company that contines to speak and act on the Word using the measure of faith that Yahweh has dealt to every man(every born again man). Romans 12:3
There is knowledge that we receive from our five physical senses (seeing,hearing,smelling,tasting,feeling), and then there is revelation knowledge that we receive from the Word of Yahweh. What we are to live by is revelation knowledge that we receive from the Bible. If we live by our five senses, we will continually be in a battle with Yah’s Word. Doing things by the five senses will cause us to be carnal. Yashweh’s Word is spiritual, like Him, and it speaks to our spirits. Also if we allow our senses to rule us, it will be an open door to the enemy. We must live by faith according to the Word of Yahweh. How we perceive things to be is not how they are! Perception also comes by way of the five physical senses!
The Bible reveals to us who we are, what Yahshua has done for us, and what we possess in the Messiah. This is how we live: By the holy Scriptures and what they reveal to us, not by our senses.
Faith is not a religion, as some may think. It is, in fact, a spiritual force that our Heavenly Father used to create the world. See Genesis 1.
Sense knowledge can not compare with revelation knowledge that we receive from the Bible. We believe in our God, Yahweh, but He can not be seen with the eyes. He is a Spirit. John 4:24 We relate to Him with our spirits. He speaks His Word to our spirit man and the Holy Spirit brings the thoughts to our minds.
Faith can’t be seen with the physical eyes because it is spiritual, also. We grow in spiritual faith by studying the Scriptures. Romans 10:17 The Bible is a spiritual book (John 6:63), and can only be understood by the spirit of a regenerated man. Titus 3:5  Otherwise, one is only using his intellect to try and understand what the scriptures are saying. 1 Corinthians 2:14 Our intellect can be a wonderful asset, but if we are learning everything by it alone, our knowledge will be one-sided. We need the help of the Holy Spirit to discern what our Father is saying to us through His Word. John 16:13
As Christians, we are to base all things by faith on the Word of God. His Word is filled with faith, just like Him. He and His Word are one. John 1:1 His Word is the foundation of all things, and all things are upheld by the Word of His power. Hebrews 1:3
Yahweh used the spiritual force of faith to create all things. When He desires to accomplish something; its already done in His mind. God calls things that be not as though they were, and then they are. Romans 4:17 He has faith in His Word that when He speaks something, He knows that it will come to pass. We have the same gift of faith it says in Romans 12:3 and Galatians 5:22,23. It’s what we do with it that counts with Yah.
The Word of Yahweh is so extremely valuable that Yahshua says that heaven and earth can pass away, but His Word shall never pass away. Matthew 24:35 The written Word is the logos and the living Word is Yahshua, Jesus, that put on flesh and dwelt among us. John 1:14
Why is it so difficult for some believers to understand faith and to live by it? As the human race goes, people are putting more importance on what they can see with their physical eyes instead of what they see revealed in the Bible. The devil loves for Yahweh’s children (and everyone else,too) to live by their emotions (5 senses) so that we will be destroyed. John 10:10 But if we endeavor to live by faith, according to the Spirit of Yah, we will have life and peace. Our Father expects His family to live by the faith that He has blessed them with! In Galatians 2:20, “We live by the faith of the Son of God..”
This is faith cabin saying bye for now. You are filled with faith, believe it and act on it. Love and smiles.
