    AMEN Christina!!! How shall it be known that God hath wrought in us, without the effects? Can the grace of Jesus Christ be in my heart, and my manner of life, spirit and nature reflect His image and likeness? Should we then instead mislead ourselves by stage-playing and flattering talk and love songs to Jesus, and our heart not really be for Him? So faith without WORKS, DEEDS, ACTION, IS DEAD!

    By Belief, By Faith...AND By WORKS:

    James 2: 19-26
    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

    A seminal chapter from Paul, who immediately distinguishes us and them, unbelievers according to Paul and us, who are saved by belief. For God spoke thru Moses of Rest ig the seventh day. Also in Exodus entering the land if Milk and Honey, which is a similar metaphor. That rest is not watching tv from an easy chair, but somehow finding favor with God due to and unwavering belief and in God
  • Clint
    WE seam to miss what we are being taught in chapter 3 and 4 Do you obsearve the sabbath day or is this just another day? We must rest and it is a holy day unto GOD it looks like we take it as unbelief, also as he speaks to us we do not observe it because of our unbelive
  • Edna
