2 Corinthians 5:7For we walk by faith, not by sight.  (NKJV)

As I sit here day after day trying to share the truth one can find in God’s Word, the Bible…I am amazed at what those around me believe about God, or their god as the case may be…  I was speaking to someone before the recent presidential election, about how God was going to choose which candidate He wanted to be president of the USA… We see this very clearly in the Bible, in…Romans 13:1Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.   (NKJV)

And this person, who I think believes that they are a Christian, asked me… “Which god ??   The god of the Jews ??  The god of the Muslims’ ??  Which god was I speaking about”… For the Christian, there is only One true God; and He made the heavens and the earth (Scripture about only One God… http://mit.irr.org/28-biblical-passages-which-explicitly-teach-there-only-one-god  )   And here-in lies the faulty beliefs of those who believe otherwise…

Chapter 11, in the Book of Hebrews, is all about the saving faith a person must have to become a Christian… I don’t know how many people I have talked to in recent years, who for all kinds of false reasons, believe that they are a Christian…  But many of these people don’t spend any time reading the Bible; or if they do, they  don’t believe all that God reveals in His Word as being truth…

Genesis 1:1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  (NKJV)  I remember having a hard time believing in the Creation by God, before I finally became a Christian in God’s eyes… I use this term often, to describe a true Christian…because only those that are given God’s pure gift of grace by saving faith alone in Jesus Christ by God Himself, are truly forgiven of their sins, and now a child of God…

Here is a video I saw posted just yesterday on Facebook by a friend of mine; which talks about God’s first Bible verse, as being the most important verse in His inerrant Word…     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_-E2OfFjpg&feature=share   If we can’t believe that God created everything, and is now in control of everything and everyone…how can we believe anything else in the Bible ??

This saving faith is given to the sinner by God to believe in His Son, or they will in no way be able to understand that they are a sinner in need of salvation… The sinner must be drawn in by God first…John 6:44No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.” (NKJV)

I believe at this point, the sinner who has been drawn in by God, must understand and obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, in order to become a Christian in God’s eyes… I spent a day writing about this very important step of repenting and confessing of one’s sins; as the sinner turns to Jesus Christ, seeking Him to become their personal Lord and Savior…  This necessity of obeying the gospel of Christ to become a Christian in God’s eyes, can be read about in the following link…      https://godsmanforever.wordpress.com/2012/10/20/gods-group-thoughts-for-10202012-gods-grace-through-obedience-to-the-gospel-of-christ/

Chapter 11 of Hebrews starts out with this, in…Hebrews 11:1-2Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.  (NKJV)

The writer of Hebrews goes on to write what is at the very heart of today’s thoughts, in…Hebrews 1:3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.  (NKJV)

The true Christian is given God’s grace through saving faith alone in Jesus Christ; and this same saving faith should allow the Christian to believe not only in Creation…but every word in the Bible that was written by 40 or so writers… These writers were inspired by God; also known as being God breathed…2 Timothy 3:16-17

There isn’t a mature believer that I know, that doesn’t believe that every word in the Bible is noting but the truth…including the Creation by God Himself…  God cannot lie…Titus 1:2of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began,  (NKJV)  And since every word found in the Bible was inspired by God; all of the miracles starting from Creation to the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave, and His ascension into heaven, should be viewed as the truth…  As Christians, we aren’t to pick and choose what part of the Bible is truth, and what part we disbelieve…

I can understand the new Christian, who might have believed in evolution all their lives, not believing that God created the heavens and the earth…  But once the new Christian is filled with the Holy Spirit, it is the Holy Spirit that will unlock the mysteries that still baffle many non-believers… Here is a link to scripture explaining this…

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1cor2:1-14,&version=NKJV   …Here is the important scripture…

1 Corinthians 2:10 & 13-14 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 13 These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.  (NKJV)

Heavenly Father, I pray that all readers understand that it is the wisdom and the spiritual teaching of the Holy Spirit, along with the saving faith required to please You (Hebrews 11:6), that will unlock the deep mysteries of Your Word…  I pray Lord that eyes will be opened, and the truth from Your Word will be seen like never before, for all of Your children who diligently spend the time reading their Bible…  I pray for spiritual wisdom and knowledge to abound in all of Your children, in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…
