James in his Epistle speaks of a profession or presumption of faith, barren and destitute of good fruit. Such faith is dead (James 2:17); it is a “faith” like the devils may have (James 2:19). It consists only of an intellectual belief of God’s being or existence, not consenting to His offer of salvation through repentance and turning from sin nor reliance on His promises.
All our knowledge of God begins on his part; we know him because we are known to him. Though our teachings forbid idolatry, many, practice spiritual idolatry in their hearts. For what a man loves most, and cares most for, that is his god: some have their riches for their god, some their pleasures, and some their lusts. And many ignorantly worship a god of their own making; a god made of Love and no chastisement. For they persuade themselves that there is mercy for them with God, though they repent not, but go on in their sins.
Heavenly Father, bring our lives into unison with Yeshua’s teachings and guidance out of the darkness ahead. I pray Father not one believes they have all the answers and humble themselves before you Father. I ask Father that you shower discernment and recognition unto all of our heads that we may be safe and strengthened as we go forward in Your name. Lord bring us insight and courage to stand as bright Beacons drawing many unto your light in the days and weeks ahead. Fill us with your wisdom that we might share this as your love and compassion for those lost and confused. We pray in your name Yeshua AMEN AND AMEN
Robert a humble obedient servant to Yeshua and his Father in heaven YA.
