Obeying GOD is the simplest of things to do but not necessarily the easiest of things to do. This is the testimony of the Scripture of Truth, recorded as a lesson full of examples of the relatively few men and women of faith who obeyed and the greater majority of faithless men and women who disobeyed. Lessons that teach and build up all those who would choose to response to, and to take up the calling of our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST, to strive for the perfection of GOD and of JESUS CHRIST forever.
The concept of that verse in the Christian Holy Scriptures referred to a sincere and tenacious unwavering conviction to really trust enough to completely obey GOD, believing and following JESUS CHRIST and GOD, no matter what happens. It was not the faith exhibited by Adam who disobeyed GOD's direct command, just because “my wife Eve told me to” (Genesis 3:12). Nor was it the insincerity exhibited by the Prophet Balaam who lied, ‘I didn’t know that YOU were against it, if YOU are not please I will turn back.’ Neither was it that of Saul the first king of Israel who lied against the HOLY SPIRIT and said, ‘But the people took of the plunder, sheep and oxen, the best of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice to the LORD your God in Gilgal.’
It was the faith of Joseph who continued to act responsibly (Genesis 39:4, 6, 22) and would not resort to do evil (Genesis 37:23, 28; 39:9) even when everything in life had been going against him. When for all the good he did he only received evil in return (Genesis 39:20). The same faith exhibited by the three friends of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, who chose to be thrown into a fiery furnace obeying GOD rather than worship Nebuchadnezzar's golden statue (Exodus 20:4 - 5; Deuteronomy 5:8 - 9) that would have allowed them to continue to live out their privileged lives.
Read the historical records of the Saints who were beaten and martyred by the wicked Jews first, then by the Beast power, the Roman emperors and after that at the behest of the Great Harlot Church because they refused to break the Everlasting Covenant and to disobey the commandments of GOD. Men and women who had refused and will refuse to acquiescence to the doctrines of the Great Harlot Church to observed Christmas and Easter and Sunday though faced with incarceration, torture and death.
Are you willing to give up your life to follow and obey GOD? JESUS CHRIST taught that anyone who love anything more than HIM is not worthy of HIM. Anyone not walking in the same manner, following HIS examples is not worthy of HIM:
The reason the whole world thought otherwise was because they did not believe the records of the Scripture of Truth but believed a great universal Harlot Church and her harlot daughters. Just as Adam and Eve did not believe GOD but believed a strange talking serpent. Just as the Antediluvian world of Noah's time did not believe GOD. Just as all those who followed after Nimrod as their king, did not believe GOD. Just as the children of Israel who wandered in the wilderness for forty years after being freed from slavery in Egypt did not believe. Just as the ancient nations of Israel and Judah that descended from the Biblical Patriarch Jacob for the most part of their nationhood did not believe. Just as the Jews and their leaders during the three and a half years of JESUS CHRIST's ministry did not believe. Just as the bulk of mankind, from the time after the Apostolic fathers, who had embraced a universal “Christianity” did not believe, even until this very day.
Yes, today, this very day, officially starting from 1995 C.E. (the year when the Church of GOD led by the Son of Perdition began to embrace the Nicene Creed and the doctrines of the Christmas religion) nearly all the Elect of GOD, the true Christian of the very Covenant mediated by the SON of GOD, the LORD JESUS, the Everlasting Covenant instituted in and by the BLOOD of ‘the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of the world’, nearly all of these Elect of GOD too are choosing not to believe the testimonies of the Word of GOD, the Scripture of Truth. They have all chosen to believe in and to worship a man who claimed that he is the definitive Elijah–To–Come because it was only he and no one else, who has come and has restored all things and completed (i.e. finished) the work of preaching the Gospel message as a witness to the whole world of mankind. Yes they all claimed to believe in and to worship (i.e. to believe and obey) this man rather than to believe and obey GOD and the LORD JESUS CHRIST. This they do so that they can get people to believe them that they are the proclaimed and acclaimed Superlatives of GOD, the faithful remnants who are the best of the best from being the most faithful, most noble, most zealous, most truth loving, most brotherly (Philadelphia loving) and agape loving of the Elect.
Satan the Devil definitely does not want you to inherit what is promised to all of mankind who would obey GOD. Because what we will inherit is what he can never attain to. And that is the Kingdom of GOD and having the same nature as JESUS CHRIST (1 Corinthians 15:49; 1 Timothy 6:16), WHO now sits on GOD's right hand with all authority and power. Though Angels do not have a naturally ordered end or cessation of life like mortal mankind, they do not have immortality and can die (read more on this in the chapter ‘Angels, Demons and Men’). But every man who is accounted worthy to attain to the resurrection of the just will inherit immortality (1 Corinthians 15:53 - 54).
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
It is to throw in your lot with GOD in full confidence that HE only do what is good and best for you. Then don't ever, never to ever look back in regret or in doubt, or worst in suspicion to begin to wonder if it is really true that you can fully trust GOD.
