    Cool The Law Of Faith

    LAW OF FAITH

    Gal 4:4-5
    4 But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law,
    5 to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.
    Rom 3:27-28
    27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.
    28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.
    Col 1:27-29
    27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
    28 Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.
    29 To this end I also labor, striving according to His working which works in me mightily.
    Matt 11:25
    25 At that time Jesus answered and said, "I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.
    1 Cor 1:19-20
    19 For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent."
    20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
    1 Cor 1:21
    21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.
    Matt 13:9-14
    9 "He who has ears to hear, let him hear!"
    10 And the disciples came and said to Him, "Why do You speak to them in parables?"
    11 He answered and said to them, "Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.
    12 "For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.
    13 "Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.
    14 "And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: 'Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, and seeing you will see and not perceive;
    John 9:40-41
    40 Then some of the Pharisees who were with Him heard these words, and said to Him, "Are we blind also?"
    41 Jesus said to them, "If you were blind, you would have no sin; but now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin remains.
    John 9:39
    39 And Jesus said, "For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind."
    Gal 3:11-12
    11 But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for "the just shall live by faith."
    12 Yet the law is not of faith, but "the man who does them shall live by them."
    Acts 13:38-39
    38 "Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins;
    39 "and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
    Mark 2:17
    17 When Jesus heard it, He said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance."
    Gal 2:19-21
    19 "For I through the law died to the law that I might live to God.
    20 "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
    21 "I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain."
    Gal 3:1-5
    1 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed among you as crucified?
    2 This only I want to learn from you: Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
    3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?
    4 Have you suffered so many things in vain-- if indeed it was in vain?
    5 Therefore He who supplies the Spirit to you and works miracles among you, does He do it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?--
    Gal 3:12
    12 Yet the law is not of faith, but "the man who does them shall live by them."
    Rom 3:27-28
    27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.
    28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.
    Heb 8:13
    13 In that He says, "A new covenant," He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
    Col 1:24-26
    24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church,
    25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God,
    26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints.
    2 Cor 5:5
    5 Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
    John 14:26
    26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
    James 2:26
    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
    James 2:24
    24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
    2 Cor 3:4-6
    4 And we have such trust through Christ toward God.
    5 Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God,
    6 who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
    Matt 10:16-19
    16 "Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.
    17 "But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues.
    18 "You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles.
    19 "But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak;
    (NKJ)
    xxx Faith is spiritual strength that is given to us by God for believing His Word. We use that spiritual strength to obey what the Word tells us to. And when we reject our feelings and emotions(unclean spirits) we will suffer wrongfully. And we will need spiritual strength to resist the flesh. And when our spiritual strength falls short we turn to God for His strength. The law of faith is we know that when He see's us suffering in obedience He will step in and hold us up.

    Rom 4:16-21
    16 Therefore it is of faith that it might be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those who are of the law, but also to those who are of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all
    17 (as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations") in the presence of Him whom he believed-- God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
    18 who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, "So shall your descendants be."
    19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb.
    20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,
    21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

    Faith-Works-Love (By Themselves they are only principles) But together they are righteousness.

    People are trying to make a conclusion out of pieces and parts. It cant be done. Faith alone won't get you to heaven. Works alone won't get you to heaven. Love alone won't get you to heaven. That is the only conclusion. It takes all three working together .

    XXX If all you have to present to God is faith, YOU ARE NOTHING.
    1 Cor 13:1-2

    1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
    2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
    James 2:14
    14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?
    James 2:17-18
    17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
    18 But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.
    James 2:24
    24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
    James 2:26
    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
    Rom 16:26
    26 but now has been made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures has been made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith--
    (NKJ)

    XXX You are saved by grace through faith. But that is NOT SALVATION. Faith only works through love.

    Eph 2:8
    8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
    (NKJ)


    Luke 6:32-33
    32 "But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.
    33 "And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
    (NKJ)

    xxx Some stand on faith and some stand on works and some stand on love. They are all principles, they have to be together. So many on here are argueing just one point or part of a whole. You need to understand. Faith without works or love is dead. Works without faith or love is vanity. Love without faith or works is useless. Love is NOT AN EMOTION. Love is an action.

    So many are running on blind faith. They dont even know what faith is. In reality their useing trust as faith. Their different. Your faith should be in what is written, all of it. But faith alone will NOT get you to heaven. Works alone will NOT get you to heaven. Love alone will not get you to heaven. What you need is the true faith in the Word of God. If you have the true faith in the Word of God you would try your best to do the works that are in the Word. Now love is NOT a feeling but an action. And the only way to learn what Godly love is would be to do the works. That is how you learn what love is by trying to do the works. In the Word that you have put your faith in.


    Rom 5:1-4
    1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
    2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
    3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;
    4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
    Eph 2:18-20
    18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
    19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
    20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone,
    Eph 3:12
    12 in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.
    (NKJ)

    xxx Do you have real faith, or blind faith?? The true faith only works through love. True love is to suffer wrongfully. Your real faith only works when you are suffering wrongfully.

    Gal 5:6
    6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love.
    (NKJ)

    1 Tim 1:5-6
    5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith,
    6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk,
    (NKJ)

    xxx Even Abraham had to prove his faith with works.

    [Jas 2:20-24, 26
    20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?
    21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?
    22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?
    23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." And he was called the friend of God.
    24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. ...
    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

    I said
    THE SPIRIT IS TRUTH
    I Jn 5:6
    6 This is He who came by water and blood-- Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.
    John 14:26
    26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
    John 16:7-14
    7 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.
    8 "And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
    9 "of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
    10 "of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;
    11 "of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.
    12 "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
    13 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
    14 "He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
    2 Cor 5:5-11
    5 Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.
    6 So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.
    7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.
    8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.
    9 Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.
    10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
    11 Knowing, therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.
    John 14:17
    17 "the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
    (NKJ)


    xxxThe only guaranteed truth from God comes through the Holy Spirit and He only quotes verses. If your looking for truth any other way you are deceived. And you won't find it.

    John 6:63
    63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
    John 17:17-20
    17 "Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
    18 "As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
    19 "And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.
    20 "I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;
    I Jn 1:5-6
    5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.
    6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.
    (NKJ)

    WITHHOLDING THE TRUTH

    Eph 4:30
    30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
    Matt 25:14-15
    14 "For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them.
    15 "And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.
    Matt 25:24-28
    24 "Then he who had received the one talent came and said, 'Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.
    25 'And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.'
    26 "But his lord answered and said to him, 'You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.
    27 'So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.
    28 'Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents.
    (NKJ)
