The Law of Faith

The Law of Faith: You must believe the witness of God and accept Jesus as your Lord & Savior [1 John 5:10-13]. If you have accepted Christ, repented of all sin, and have been baptised, then you are saved, and no one can tell you that you are not saved; it falls upon you to workout your salvation [Philippians 2:12]. By this I mean that the holy spirit is given unto you to teach you all things and show you all things, it helps you to live a godly life by convicting you when you transgress the will of God. In laymens terms the holy spirits tells you when you are wrong[John 16:5-15] this leads you to repent of sin.

Again, no man can tell you that you are not saved, once you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord.  However the wise will understand the truth that follows. There will come a day when Jesus Christ himself must confirm your salvation, this is the second part of salvation [1 Corinthians 1:5-8]. You have read correctly, one day you will stand before Jesus Christ and it falls upon Jesus to state whether or not you are truly saved and can enter into the Kingdom of God.  (Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.)[Matthew 7:21-23].

These are the true saying of God my friends. I am a writer and have written several books in Jesus' name, but it doesn't matter if I write 100 books or preach 10,000 sermons; if I have not worked out my salvation in accordance with the will of God, then I will be doomed to hell. I would merely be another lost soul in hell who thought that works could get him into the Kingdom of God, when they can't.  Read the book of Romans and Paul will tell you 1000 times that the grace of God by faith in Jesus Christ is what gets a man into heaven not works[Romans 3:19-25]. 

So what can you do to ensure that Jesus will confirm your salvation at the appointed time? My advice is to remain under the grace of God, seek God with your whole heart, love God above all else, and listen to his holy spirit when it convicts you of sin. Repent and change your ways immediately, and Jesus will gladly confirm your salvation.  The bible says that there are certain traits that accompany salvation [1 Timothy 6:11-14].  David was not perfect, but God said that his heart was perfect because as soon as David sinned he repented and did not continue to commit the same sin[1 Kings 11:4].

This is our faith: believe God, accept Jesus as Lord & Savior, be baptized, and live a godly life; repenting of sin daily, knowing that the blood of Jesus Christ forgives all sin, covers all sin [Romans 4:6-12].  Do these things and you have kept the law of faith. 

A New Law:
-The Law of False Doctrine: Sound Doctrine saves and False Doctrine condemns [1 Timothy 4:16].  The bible says that in the last days people will bring to themselves preachers who preach false doctrine [1Timothy 4:1-5].  The basic tenant of the bible says that a new law enters, to do away with the old law [Hebrews 8:13].  The current law is the Law of Faith in Jesus Christ, God's law.  So why would anyone preach false doctrine?  I told you, to do away with God's law.  But false doctrine has always been around right?  It has been around, but the key is this, the bible says that God's Law, The Law of Faith, will be done away with when the antichrist comes onto the scene.  A change in doctrine, doing away with the Law of Faith in Jesus Christ, is a sign of the times we are in.
