I love this picture! Here's a guy who is utterly committed and relaxed in the confidence that his parachute will open when he needs it to. To me, It's a model example of the action known as Faith. I use to think that faith was a noun. You know, person, place, or thing. Good job class ;-) ! But, in recent years, as I mature, I'm finding out it's a verb. An action! As the Word proclaims, "Faith without works is dead." I was listening to a very old wise man talk yesterday and he was lamenting the fact that the world would never know or hear of the knowledge he had gained over the years of his life because of FEAR. He was fearful of what the enemy would do to him or his loved ones had he talked about activities that take place behind the scenes of world events. I could understand where this man was coming from given some of the things he said he had seen and witnessed first hand in his life. In looking at the times we are living in who could blame him. What you know and say could get you and your family in a lot of troubles these days. We are living in a time when proclaiming the name of Jesus and salvation to all is becoming a health hazard and may carry dire consequences! In Syria, Christians are being slaughtered whole-sell! The same in Iran and other countries too! How about here? I see articles all the time about Christians coming under attack for standing on the gospel of Jesus Christ. The enemy operates out of fear and seeks to enslave you with it. He seeks to isolate, violate, and humiliate! He seeks to devour you as a roaring lion! He seeks to sift you as wheat! He seeks to oppress, suppress, and depress! He seeks to blame and shame! He seeks to shut yo'lips under the guise of guilt! But TO GOD BE THE GLORY because perfect love cast out all fear! Through faith, the evil one has no authority to touch you! So, in the words of the great MC Hammer, "You can't touch this!" Friends, wrap yourself in the righteousness of Jesus Christ and tell the evil one, "I...DON"T....LIKE...YOU!!!" as stated by my Pastor, Tyrone Johnson. The evil one wants nothing more than to destroy you by using fear as a means to accomplish his task, but take the leap of faith. Let go and let God!
Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. James 2:17
But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? James 2:20
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:4
Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. Hebrews10:38
