24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
So our faith has to be justified? It’s what the word says. God judges us to be ready to receive his grace, It is a free gift he gives us in his way not ours. I believe it’s given at a level of maturity when we can handle it. Because Adultery and murder aren’t under the blood habitually. You aren’t going to be having strongholds under grace unless you fall away from it. Than you have to renew yourself all over again to be justified by faith under grace.
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Not through works means by doing good deeds not works of faith.
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,
16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit?
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?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
With the recent news of Supreme Court ruling same sex marriages all over our land it struck a cord with those that were happy and I said I was not. Why is it a Christian can’t defend their faith? Why is it a Christian is considered to be a hater?
We hate sin we hate what sin does to the world thats just it no good comes from this at all. Clearly defying God and his word.
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman.
It is an abomination.”
“If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman,
both of them have committed an abomination.
They shall surely be put to death.
Their blood shall be upon them.”
“A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man,
nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment,
for all who do so are an abomination to the LORD your God.”
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven
against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men . . .
For even their women exchanged the natural use
for what is against nature (lesbianism).
Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman,
burning in their lust for one another,
men with men committing what is shameful (homosexuality) . . .
that those who practice these things are worthy of death (Hell),
and not only those who do the same
but also those who approveof those who practice them!”
(Romans 1:18, 26, 27, 32)
“As Sodom and Gomorrah,
and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, (a total of 5 cities were destroyed)
having given themselves over to sexual immorality
and gone after strange flesh, (homosexuality)
are set forth as an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”
“And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes,
condemned them (Sodom and Gomorrah) to destruction,
making them an example
to those who afterward would live ungodly …”
(2 Peter 2:6)
“WOE to those who call evil good, and good evil;
who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;”
America is now looked at by the world as a gay marriage country.This is great for issis terrorist that kills gays. And more fuel for their fire as they were let in our boarders to destroy us.
This is what marriage has always been defined as
the legally or formally recognized union of a man and a woman (or, in some jurisdictions, two people of the same sex) as partners in a relationship.
“a happy marriage
Take into consideration this please before you pass judgement on a Christian for defending their faith.
Our Lord and savior died on the cross an agonizing death so we could have eternal life.
A friend was wanting me to be a part of her church interceding. She said there was a lot of witchcraft there because it was so anointed. Well the first thing I felt when I walked in was not the lord but like she said witchcraft. I believe that the reason her church was so under attack was because it was anointed but not of God. In order to know this I had to know God and what his presence felt like. The presence there was overwhelmingly demonic and even through the worship nothing was breaking it.
