SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY

WHAT ARE “WORKS”, ACCORDING TO GOD’S WRITTEN WORD???
WHAT ARE “WORKS”, ACCORDING TO GOD’S WRITTEN WORD??? LET’S SEE WHAT JESUS ANSWERED WHEN THE DISCIPLES ASKED HIM THIS QUESTION…
John 6:28 Then said they unto him, “WHAT SHALL WE DO, THAT WE MIGHT WORK THE WORKS OF GOD”? John 6:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, This is “THE WORK OF GOD”, that “YE BELIEVE ON HIM WHOM HE HATH SENT”.
AS YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE, THE WORKS THAT GOD REQUIRES OF AN INDIVIDUAL IS FOR THAT PERSON TO BELIEVE ON JESUS CHRIST, WHOM GOD HAS SENT!!!
NOW THAT WE KNOW THAT THE WORK OF GOD IS BELIEVING ON JESUS, LET’S SEE WHAT THE WORD OF GOD MEANS WHEN IT SAYS, “FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD”!!!
James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works (NOT BELIEVING ON JESUS), is dead, being alone.
ABRAHAM, ACCORDING TO MAN’S STANDARDS TODAY WOULD BE CONSIDERED AN ADULTEROR AND A CHEATER, NOT SOMEONE THAT YOU WOULD EXPECT TO BE HEAVEN BOUND, YET THE WORD OF GOD SAYS IN Romans 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham “BELIEVED GOD”, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. James 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham “BELIEVED GOD”, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
QUESTION: WHAT DID GOD REQUIRE OF ABRAHAM TO MAKE HIM RIGHTEOUS???
ANSWER: ABRAHAM’S REQUIREMENT WAS TO “BELIEVE GOD”!!!
James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. James 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? James 2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? James 2:22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? James 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. James 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
HAD ABRAHAM NOT BELIEVED GOD, HE WOULD HAVE NEVER TAKEN ISAAC UP TO BE SACRIFICED, BUT HE DID
BELIEVE GOD, THEN HE REALIZED GOD HAD ANOTHER PLAN, A RAM WAS IN THE THICKET FOR THE SACRIFICE !!!
LET’S LOOK AT RAHAB THE HARLOT, SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE, BUT THE WORD OF GOD SAYS IN James 2:25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
RAHAB HEARD THE WORD AND BELIEVED GOD…
Joshua 2:9 And she said unto the men, “I know that the LORD hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. Joshua 2:10 For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. Joshua 2:11 And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath”.
James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE GOD (JESUS CHRIST) HE DID IT ALL FOR US!!!
ONE WOULD HAVE TO AGREE ACCORDING TO GOD’S WRITTEN WORD THAT “WORKS” IS BELIEVING ON
JESUS AND HIS WRITTEN WORD!!!
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE, NO HUMAN BEING WILL EVER BE GOOD ENOUGH TO PLEASE GOD, THAT’S WHY HE SENT HIS SON TO DIE FOR US!!! JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO COULD SATISFY THE NEED OF ATONEMENT AND PUT US IN RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD!!! IT’S ALL ABOUT WHAT JESUS DID FOR US 2000 PLUS YEARS AGO ON THE CROSS!!!
DO YOU KNOW JESUS? HAVE YOU TRULY GIVEN YOUR LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST AND ASKED HIM TO BE YOUR SAVIOR? CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO FIND OUT HOW TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR!!! TIME IS SHORT JESUS IS COMING REAL SOON, DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND!!!
SOON, THE TRUE BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS WILL BE RAPTURED FROM THIS WORLD THAT HAS FORGOTTEN AND FORSAKEN GOD!!! 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.
