We right away step into the batter's box with Hebrew's 6:9-12,
["... 9But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.
10For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
11And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
12That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises...]
Now this is a message to those who think of giving up because perhaps we think our labor in the Lord goes no place and no where! And we sometimed have trial of faith more often than not! But it is all to get the focus of ourselves and back on God! Now when we think something is lost and defeated, God miraculously saved the day! Now the essence of faith is something we have in God and not something we work up by sheer concentration or will-power! Now what does the bible say about faith?!...
["...Deuteronomy 32:20 (Whole Chapter)
And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith...]
And there were some God said they had no faith. And when God hides his face from us, our faith is tested and we panic many times, because the trials become so severe.
["...Psalm 5:9 (Whole Chapter)
For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue...]
Now this working into the dungeon of someone who has no faith.
["...Proverbs 20:6 (Whole Chapter)
Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find? ...]
Now this is about those who trust on their own goodness, but God says that is not God's faith!
["...Jeremiah 23:28 (Whole Chapter)
The prophet that hath a dream, let him tell a dream; and he that hath my word, let him speak my word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat? saith the LORD...]
What has chaff have to do with wheat? Not everyone who claim to have faith, really pass the test before God.
["...Matthew 16:8 (Whole Chapter)
Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread?...]
And those with no faith, often reason among themselves what is rigth and what something means and with it what is to them right and wrong.
["...Matthew 21:21 (Whole Chapter)
Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done...]
Jesus make it clear that nothing is impossible for those who have faith, but it has to a waverless faith or the faith the size of a mustard seed if it is genuine...!
May you have a blessed day, night, evening and morning...
