I Am He Who Believes
(Mk16:17-20; He11:1-3)

God is living (Mt16:16).
Though He is invisible He exists and
He lets those who believe Him experience His living existence.

Faith is believing Him and
The life of this faith is seeing Him who is invisible and living before Him (He11:27).

For there is no one without faith
Men have believed in things that are invisible and developed science and civilization.
As such, there is self-confidence, which is the belief that is
Subjective, self-assurance, all based on one’s own experience and knowledge,
While there is the faith by revelation which is
Objective, the assurance fo God, the faith that is based on His word.

The Bible reveals the visible world (the material world/ limited) and
The invisible world (the spiritual world / eternity);
The visible beings (animals, humans / limited) and
The invisible beings (God, angels, demons, souls / eternal),
The visible heaven (the atmosphere, the universe / limited) and
The invisible heaven (the spiritual heaven / eternal).

The Bible gives the full account of the events that unfolded according to such,
Beginning with the story surrounding
The tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the Garden of Eden (Ge2:17, 3:4-6).
Deceived by Satan, that is, the devil (Is14:12-15; Rev12:7-9), Adam sinned and
All men became hell-bound with the devil (Mt25:41).

While there are stories of men in the Old Testament who saw God,
In reality no one saw Him directly for no can see God and live (Ex33:20).
Rather, Abraham, Jacob and Moses (Ge18:1-15, 32:30) all saw
The angel in the name Jehovah (Hos12:3-5).

To the people of God, Israel, who believed in the living existence of God
The temple where the name Jehovah was (2Ch2:6) had a great meaning.

So when Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19),
They were shocked but through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
Not an angel but the very nature God (Php2:6) would
Show God not ideologically but in reality (Jn14:9).

Even though those who saw Him as a son of Joseph considered Him absurd (Jn6:42),
The unclean spirits who recognized Him as the Son of God trembled (Mk1:23-27, 34; Lk8:26-33) for
As spiritual beings demons could recognize that
He is the Word the Spirit who became flesh (Jn1:1, 14).

As He died, Yeshua said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1)Became the Lord of faith who believed in the Father to raise Him back from the dead (Jn10:18; He12:2):
2)Judged the origin of sin the devil (Is14:12-15; 1Jn3:8); and
3)As the last Adam redeemed the sin of the first Adam (1Co15:45-47; Eph1:7).

His resurrected body that has flesh and bones (Lk24:39)
Perfectly showed the existence of God and
The Holy Spirit whom He sent from heaven
Exposes the spiritual world and the schemes of the devil, his great organization (Eph6:10-12).

The Christian is not someone who seeks ethical cultivation, charity or pursue an ideology.
But rather, he is engaged in the spiritual warfare for
There is no safety zone in his household, the church or even his prayer hour.
Therefore, in every hour, every second he only thinks of the name Yeshua and
He is not deceived by the teachings of the deceiving spirits (1Ti4:1-2).
In the name Yeshua, he speaks in tongues and drives out demons,
As though he was seeing those invisible for
He longs to escape the burning universe in the last day
Wearing the crown of glory and return to the kingdom of heaven.

O Lord,
Though we have never seen our Father’s face
We believe that our Father is living.
Let us survive the days in Hades swarming with evil spirits and
Until we return gloriously to the Father’s house
Let us only think of the name Yeshua every minute, every second.
Let there be no place in our thought for demons to invade! Amen.
