C14 A: SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES OF FAITH

http://1.1.1.5/bmi/1.1.1.1/bmi/1.1.1.4/bmi/templeofprayers.org/jesusearth1.jpg

Luk_18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

Three Touchstones of Spiritual Discipleship is Faith, Hope and Charity. 

Heb_11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Heb_11:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

1Co_13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

As we Meditate upon the Spiritual Principles of Faith we will begin to see that it is the Capstone of the Belief System of the Disciple. It is the Motivating Power behind the Strength of what we Spiritually Think, Perceive, Believe and Do.

The following articles throughout the Faith Blog will define Faith and show the important Role it plays in the Spiritual Life of the Disciple.

2Co 5:5  Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 
2Co 5:6  Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 
2Co 5:7  (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) 
2Co 5:8  We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 
2Co 5:9  Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him. 
2Co 5:10  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

Faith is Belief. It is Belief in the FATHER, the SON, (the WORD) the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT and the Truth. Faith/Belief is one of the >> Spiritual Gifts << Endowed and Communicated as Light to the Disciple of CHRIST JESUS by the >> HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT. <<—>> (see Parts 92A – 92D.) Faith is the Source of Belief, Peace, Hope, Charity, Love, Grace and Joy, the Rewards from the FATHER – GOD. Faith Unites Man to GOD for Salvation. Faith is the means by which the Strength of Grace, Life, Trustworthiness, Fidelity, and Reliance are Communicated between Man as Disciple and GOD as the FATHER, the SON as Savior and the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT as Sustainer as they Abide with the Disciple who Yields his Life and Surrender to the >> Sovereignty of GOD << and >> Chooses to Follow CHRIST JESUS, << to Serve and Live in the >> Kingdom of GOD & Light << in >> Joy and Blessedness << (Read Parts 1-6) while >> Abiding with CHRIST JESUS and the FATHER << as a >> Spiritual Disciple.<< 

The Absence of Faith & Unbelief

>> Unbelief << is the Absence of Faith and Belief through Self-Will and is the Root of all >> Sin, Evil, Ignorance and Darkness. << The first Sin was caused by the >> Self Will and the Unbelief of Adam & Eve << who were Deceived and Believed the >> Carnal Deception G:1 – G:5 << –  the Lie of the serpent; aka the Devil; aka Satan; aka the dragon; aka the god of this World whose Lie/Deception is the Lust of the Eyes, the Lust of the Flesh and the Pride of Life which all Lead to Death. The devil is the Murderer and Liar which CHRIST JESUS spoke of in John 8:44 who Deceived the first Parents of  Mankind in Man’s Beginning. Adam/Eve became the Murderer of the Human Race through the Propagation of the Deceit of the >> Sin << of >> Adam’s & Eve’s Unbelief. << The Devil is again mentioned as the one who Deceives the whole World in the >> Book of Revelation. << The World thereafter became the >> Two Divisions/Races of Mankind, << the Spiritual and the Carnal. The Carnal Minded Lives in Darkness and Ignorance and can not See, Perceive or Comprehend the Light of the Gospel, the Kingdom of Light/GOD/Heaven unless they are Converted, >> Regenerated << and are >>  Born Again. <<

Rev_12:9 and the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Tit_3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;

2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

The Power of Faith to Overcome In Spiritual Warfare

This Blog will discuss the Spiritual Principles of Faith and its Power to Overcome in Spiritual Warfare as we Fight or Wrestle not against Flesh and Blood but against Supernatural Forces of the Spiritual World such as Principalities & Powers, against the Rulers of the Darkness of this World, and against Spiritual Wickedness in High Places. As Disciples of CHRIST JESUS we are Reminded that He is, among many >> Designations & Titles etc.s<< the Son of GOD; Light of the World; Co-creator of the World; the >> He who the GODHEAD Indwells Bodily; << Ruler; King; Intercessor; Mediator; High Priest; the Head of the Church; the Image of the Invisible GOD; and Overcomer/Conqueror of the World. In Measurement this is not even “the Tip of the Iceberg” as the saying goes when attempting to Comprehend some – thing which is Unfathomable. >> CHRIST JESUS has Destroyed the Works of the devil including Sin, Death and the Grave; << CHRIST JESUS, after Endowing/Baptizing the Believer with the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT; Grants the Believer to become a >> Partaker of the Divine Nature; << and Partakers of CHRIST as they >> Become Disciples of CHRIST JESUS Parts 1-10. << As they undergo >> Spiritual Discipleship D:1 – D:5; << they >> Renounce the World << of Flesh and the Carnal Deception; are >> Converted and Regenerated;<< | >> Transformed, << and made Kings and Priests to GOD

Eph_6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Eph_3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Col_1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col_2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Col 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

2Co 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
2Co 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Heb_3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
