THE FAITH TO OBEY GOD.

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6

Sounds simple enough doesn't it? Just believe GOD, that HE is GOD and that HE rewards us if we diligently seek HIM. Before jumping to any conclusion prematurely the reader should read the Christian Bible and learn how faithful men (and women) of GOD lived out the process of their lives of faith and how many (the by far greater majority of the Elect of the Old Testament period) failed the tests of faith, starting from the very first family of mankind, Adam and his wife, Eve. The walk of faith is apparently not as easy as it sounds.

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.

Because the faith that is required is not the ‘just confess JESUS CHRIST is the SON of GOD and accept HIM as a personal savior’ as is the doctrine of many of the daughters churches of the Christmas religion. That is not faith but an utterance of the mouth. In all the teachings of the Scripture of Truth, each word and line of text is not to be read in isolation as is often the case when taught and advanced by the disciples of the Christmas religion and all those who have strayed from the Truth to promote their own evil ideas and wicked agenda.

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 demonstrated by Abraham who left his home to become a nomad because GOD told him to. Who heeded his wife and cast out his concubine and first son, Ishmael because GOD told HIM to. Who sent all his other children away from Isaac because GOD told him to. Who took his son, his promised heir and the desire of his life, to sacrifice to GOD because GOD told him to.

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 about this same faith exhibited by the Prophets and Apostles of GOD from Moses to Malachi, from Peter to Paul who brought the Words of GOD to a rebellious and wicked people, all arrogant brazen liars pretending to love GOD and pretending to be earnestly and faithfully awaiting the arrival of the MESSIAH and MESSENGER of The Covenant which all of their Scriptures testified of. A people who cursed them and had them beaten and thrown into prison, and into pit. Who had them stoned and tortured and murdered.

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.

It is definitely not the faith of mainstream “Christianity” who ditched the commandments of GOD because some men who they don't even know, told them to; who kept Christmas and Easter and Sunday because some men from ancient history whom they have never met or directly heard or spoken to, told them through their historical records to. They threw out everything GOD commanded, all the things that JESUS CHRIST commanded and taught, written plainly and clearly in the Holy Christian Scriptures which they had claimed as the basis of their beliefs because some men whom they do not even know personally, from some ancient time with dubious credentials told them to. All these against the clearly and plainly written records of the Scripture of Truth of which they, from their very own mouths, had testified that it is the Word of GOD. This is definitely not the faith required to please GOD.

Do you have the faith to obey GOD? Or are you looking at the world around you, at what other people are doing and following after them. Do you have the faith to obey GOD and to keep the commandments and teachings of the Word of GOD in the Christian Bible? Do you have the faith to keep GOD's commandments and to observe the New Everlasting Covenant in the commemoration of the Passover or are you keeping Christmas and Easter and obeying the doctrines of the Christmas religion?

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:

He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me.
Matthew 10:37 - 38

And also:
He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life
John 12:25

What HE meant simply put is this, ‘Are you prepared and ready to give up everything to obey ME?’ Do you have the faith to do that?

JESUS CHRIST never said that it was going to be easy (Matthew 7:13 - 14). Read the complete Gospel accounts recorded by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. I did not make this up. The reason you thought it was easy is because you had believed the lies of the Christmas religion; the lies of the Churches of the Antichrists. This I had mentioned in another of my works, ‘The End Of The World And How It Is Going To Happen,’ the Christianity of the Bible was never and is not a global or universal religion, not yet .

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.

You (irregardless of whether you are a true Christian, a fraudulent Christian or neither) will have to decide whether you want the eternal imperishable inheritance and the immortality promised by the LORD JESUS and GOD, or the temporary pleasures from: the social status and perceived power glory andor all the other things that titillate the senses of this present lifetime (2 Timothy 3:1 - 4; James 5:5). That has always been the choice (Deuteronomy 30:19). Mankind since Adam until today has always chosen the latter. You too have to make your choice or have you already made it?

Contrary to the lies of the Christmas religion, GOD will according to HIS set time destroy all the wicked reserving even Spirit Angels who sinned in chains of darkness for the Day of Judgment (2 Peter 2:4 - 6; Jude 1:5 - 11). The choice is simple, live a disciplined and responsible life obeying GOD and keeping HIS commandments or live a permissive life pandering to self-expediencies and perish forever in the Day of Judgment. The reason you thought otherwise is because you have been listening to Satan the Devil, exactly as Adam and Eve did, believing in a strange talking serpent. Just as the Antediluvian world did.

Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?
Romans 6:16

Just as also nearly all the Elect of GOD are doing today, choosing to disbelieve the Christian Holy Scriptures to instead worship (i.e. to believe, believe in and obey) two particular men. This they do through subscribing to and adopting the doctrines, teachings and commandments of these two men instead of obeying GOD and the LORD JESUS (i,e, the testimonies of the Scripture of Truth).

And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 12:17

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.
Hebrews 11:1

Faith is the simplest of things to understand but not the easiest to practice. It is the complete trust you have in someone. In this case in GOD, the total and complete faith towards GOD, necessary in order that you will believe and obey every word, commandment and instruction from HIM without doubting, faltering, compromising, rationalizing or justifying. Absolutely!

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.
