The Result of Your Faith, the Salvation of Your Souls
(He11:6; 1Pe1:9)

God is living (Mt16:16).
He is living in His existence for ever and ever (Rev10:6), and
His word is also always living (He4:12; 1Pe1:23).

Faith is believing Him and
The life of this faith is about living according to His word for the salvation of one’s soul.

No one in the world lives without faith as
Business deals, investments, marriage, medical operations, and travels in aircrafts, cable cars, ship
All involve faith.
As such, there are two types of faith:
Self-confidence — the faith of natural people — subjective — based on their knowledge and
experiences — thus no guarantee from God;
Faith — the faith of God — objective — based on the word of God — there is promise and
guarantee from God.

The fundamental faith demanded by the Bible is to believe in: Invisible beings — God, angels, souls — and in the invisible world — heaven and hell; and All the worlds — as created by God’s word (denying evolution theory).

Deceived by the devil,
The ancestor of mankind, Adam, sinned by eating the forbidden fruit and
As a result became the devil's slave (Ge3:4-6; 2Pe2:9) and
All men became destined to enter the fire of hell prepared for the devil and his angels (Mt25:41).

God’s work of salvation began through the men of faith.
By faith, Noah was warned about things yet unseen and built an ark
To save his family of eight from the judgement by deluge that wiped out all mankind (He11:7).
By faith, Moses kept the Passover and sprinkled the blood (He11:28) so that
The Destroyer of the firstborn might not touch them and
The people of Israel were delivered from Egypt and arrived in the desert,
About 70,000 males over 20 (Nu1:46-49).
However, during the 40 years in the desert all but two of the two million people fell and died there for
They did not obey the word (He3:16-18).

In spite of the fact that the sanctuary which reminded them that
“Jehovah = the God of the salvation of Israel” (Is43:11)
Saved them from all tribulations and enemies,
For they had forgotten God their Savior and sought other gods
They were destroyed (Is17:10).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19), because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would save not the flesh from the tribulation of the flesh but the soul from the fire of hell
In the name not Jehovah but Yeshua (Mt1:21) for
He is the incarnate Word (Jn1:1, 14),
The Christ (man), the Son of the living God (God) (Mt16:16).

In the mockery of the Jews who did not believe Him (Mt27:40-43),
He died on the cross but said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that:
1) The One who could save Him from death was the Father (He5:7);
2) Judged the devil the origin of sin (Ge2:17, 3:4-6; 1Jn3:8); and
3) With His blood redeemed all men by grace (Eph1:7), and made a way for them to arrive in
salvation by their own faith (He10:39).

He rose and ascended to heaven and sat on the heavenly throne.
He is the Lamb who was slain, who has the marks of having shed blood from His body for
Salvation belongs to Him alone (Rev7:10).

The Holy Spirit lets the believer bet his life to believe that: Yeshua Christ is living today; and
The blood of Yeshua Christ is in me.

By believing such, he has become justified (Rm3:30, 4:13) and
What would ultimately bring his soul to salvation is his faith (He10:39).

“The gospel (redemption) + faith => salvation” (He4:2).
For the Christian must continue to grow up in his salvation (1Pe2:2),
He sheds the sinful, unbelieving heart (He3:12),
Listens to the word of God, the word that the Spirit says to the churches, and
Puts effort to always submit and obey in fear and trembling (Php2:12) so that
By faith his soul will arrive in salvation in the end.

O Lord,
Let none of all those You have given me
Ignore so great a salvation.
Let us always submit and obey with fear and trembling so that
We can finally arrive in salvation. Amen.
