“So then, FAITH cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God,” Romans 10:17.
Religion is a mockery of true faith!
So what does faith mean to you?
Faith is used around the world in every day common conversation. Yes, I would say it takes faith just to live life.
It takes faith to wake up in the morning and live the day… but that’s not the faith I’m referring to, this faith comes from God and His word, it is from Jesus Christ, and this faith gives life abundant now and eternal life through His precious blood.
Jude 17-19 says,
“But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons (soulish or worldly), WHO CAUSE DIVISIONS, NOT HAVING THE SPIRIT.”
2 Peter 3:2-4 says,
“that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and SAYING, ‘”WHERE IS THE PROMISE OF HIS COMING? FOR SINCE THE FATHERS FELL ASLEEP, ALL THINGS CONTINUE AS THEY WERE FROM THE BEGINNING OF CREATION.”
What is a mocker?
One who laughs at, holds in contempt or makes fun of something. A mocker is also a false teacher… In this case they are making fun of REAL FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST!
If you haven’t run into one, at some point you will… guard your heart.
Instead, Jude 20-23 says,
“But you beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. And on some have compassion, making a distinction; but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.”
Build faith! How? Hearing the Word of God, and Praying in the Holy Spirit.
Stay in the love of God beloved, because mockers can create all kinds of emotions by of the things they say or do.
Hold on to Jesus and His Word, for He is your deliverer and theirs, from hell.
God Bless You, you are in my prayers
