The Faith of Saints
(2 Corinthians 10:3-8)
can block His works (Mt 16:23-24)
and no one can deny His word (Mt 17:5).
Heaven and earth will pass away, but His word is eternal (Mt 24:35).
As He put this word of life in our hearts,
our faith is to believe this word (Jn 8:31).
though we fight with injustice in the flesh,
we do not fight with fleshly emotion or reason.
We do it by believing the word (Mt 4:1-11).
It is the power to demolish every stronghold before us.
The world denies the way of the cross with every theory,
but we demolish them by God’s truth.
They oppose the knowledge of God and forcibly condemn,
but we demolish all this pride.
Various ideas and philosophies try to exert influence,
but the word is living, and the Resurrected One’s power
takes them captive to obey Jesus Christ (Phi 2:10-11).
The Holy Spirit greatly inspires and works on the saints (1 Cor 12:7-10).
〇 Our faith has integrity.
Once we acknowledge the Lord and unite with Him,
we never change – like the spiritual bride.
〇 Some people say they believe the word,
but by double mindedness – switching between religion and believing –
they are cowardly and corrupt.
〇 If we accept the word, we become gods,
become God’s children,
and our spirits belong to heaven.
※ Those belonging to God must first overcome their flesh,
discern all worldly lies,
and be filled with the hope of the resurrection.
