Faith - is the substance of things hoped for: the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1)
The Most High requires us to have faith in him, especially the nation of Israel, the Lord’s chosen
people. Without Faith it is impossible to please him for he that cometh to the Most High must believe that he is (Heb. 11:6), otherwise your existence on this earth is made void. All human life is predicated on serving the Lord in truth. And if your not serving the Lord, then you are serving satan.
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve the Most High and mammon. (Matt. 6:24)
There are only two vibrations in the earth. These are good and evil, or righteousness and wickedness, or positive and negative. Even Job understood that the Lord can bring good and evil (Job 2:10), but when a man does evil, it represents a presumptousness in disobeying the Laws and Statues of the Most High. When a person does this it is concluded that there is a lack of Faith.
“Behold to obey is better than sacrifice and to hearken than the fat of rams..." (1 Sam. 15: 22-23)
We must remember, in all things, Faith requires sacrifice. If a man says he believes in the Lord, then there is no greater love from a man than a man who is willing to sacrifice.
“...Present your bodies as a living sacrifice holy acceptable unto the Lord which is your reasonable service...”(Rom. 12:1)
In Faith we must examine ourselves whether we are in the Faith (truth). (2 Cor. 13:5) We must keep under ourselves and bring it into subjection, unless we become castaways. (1 Cor. 9:27)
It is taught in the religious institutions that a man can have Faith without keeping the Laws of the Most High. This is not true. What is Faith? It is complete trust or confidence and loyalty to the Most High in Christ in keeping his Laws and statues. You cannot say you have Faith (love) in the Lord and not keep his commandments. “For this is the love of the Most High that we keep his commandments.’ (1 Jn. 5:3) The keeping of the Laws is based off two things, Faith and Love. How can you love the Lord and not have Faith in his commandments. These two aspects coincide (faith and love), that if a man loves something he will also have faith in it. Hence; the keeping of the commandments, that if you love the Most High in Christ you will keep his Laws. “And this is love, that we walk after his commandments.” (2 Jn. 2:6) Did not the Lord say, why call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things I say. (Lk. 6:46). Also, did not the Lord teach a certain man that came to him and asked, what must he do to have eternal life, the Lord said, “if thou will enter into life keep the commandments. (Matt. 19:16-17).
The scriptures say that we are justified by faith without the deeds of the Law. (Rom. 3:38) The conclusion here is not to have Faith without the Laws, but to have Faith in the Laws. Otherwise Faith is made void if your not loyal and obedient to the commandment.
Faith without the deeds of the Law, represent only the ‘Sacrificial Laws,’ not all the Laws. When the nation of Israel fell as a nation the Laws of Sacrificing animals ceased. Christ became the ultimate sacrifice. Therefore, there is no more need for that Law. (Heb. 9:11-14) (1 Pet. 1:19) But all the other Laws still exist such as, the Ten Commandments, the Dietary Laws, the Civil Laws, the Moral Laws, and the Ceremonial Laws (High holy days). Remember, Faith without works is dead. What does it profit though a man have Faith and have not works. Faith alone cannot save him. (Jam. 2:14, 17-20)
This is the trial of men that though we live in a negative and sinful world, we through Faith in the Lord keep the commandments, knowing that the trial of our Faith worketh patience and patience, experience, and experience, hope. (Rom. 5:3-4) Though our Faith be tried by fire, that we might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Christ. (1 Pet. 1:7)
We can conclude now that Faith is nothing without the Law. What shall we say then, shall we continue in sin that grace may abound. Lord forbid. Do we then make void the Law through Faith? Lord forbid. We establish the Laws. (Rom. 3:31) The Lord knowing the nation of Israel would sin in their captivity and neglect keeping the righteous Laws, sent Christ who is the Faith for us all. The Laws would be established through him our Lord and Savior. For he came not to destroy the Law, but to fulfill it. (Matt. 5:17)
The Lord Christ (Yahawashi) who represents our Faith and the example of Faith that we are supposed to have. For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Cor. 5:7) Not as evil doers or sinners, but as righteous men seeking righteousness. In Faith there is responsibility to uphold certain aspects such as, prayer, loyalty, belief, love, trust, obedience, keeping the Laws etc. The Lord teaches us this in the two greatest commandments. Love the Lord with all thy heart and all thy soul, and to love thy neighbor as thy self. (Mk. 12:28-31) A person of Faith will show responsibility. “...for whatsoever is not of Faith is sin. (Rom.14:23)
It is understood that in trials and tribulations, and in the weakness of the flesh, mistakes in keeping the Laws will be made. But the Faith and grace of Christ (Yahawashi) who died for our sins forgives us of our mistakes.With this knowledge we can continue in the works (Laws) of the Lord. Faith is from day to day. Some days your strong in the Faith and others you are not.
“For there in is the righteousness of the Most High revealed from Faith to Faith...” (Rom. 1:17)
But before Faith (Christ) came we were kept under the Law (Laws of Sacrifice) shut up unto the Faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ (Faith). But after Faith (Christ) is come we are no longer under a schoolmaster. We all should be children of Faith. (Gal. 3:23-27) This represents the schoolmaster who is the teacher of the Law, and once you are trained in the Law, and the experience of the Law becomes your wisdom, then there’s no more need for a teacher. After this training in the Law, Faith is supposed to take over. As it is written, the Lord came not to destroy the Law, but to fulfill it. (Matt. 5:17)
“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves.”
