Rewards Are For Here and Now Too

God says He is a Rewarder.

Hebrews 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.

What God wants most of all from us is that we believe in Him, as Jesus said in John 6:29.

John 6:28  Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God?
29  Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.


God Is All You Need

In Exodus 3:14, God issued His Great Emancipatin Proclamation for His people in Egypt.

In it He identified Himself as I AM.

He knew that this would make sense to His People, because He had already been referring to Himself for centuries as I AM.

I AM the Provider - Genesis 22:14.

I AM your Victory Banner - Exodus 17:15

I AM your Peace - Judges 6:20

God wants us to believe Him, but not as the devils do, who believe and tremble (James 2:19)

God wants us to believe that HE IS. Hebrews 11:6. He is our I AM.


Faith and Love Page

The Bible says thrice that "the just shall live by faith".

Often, Bible teachers and preachers take that to mean that the just ought to live according to the doctrines and precepts of faith.

But that's not what it says. It says simply that the person who is just shall live, not must or ought to live, by faith. Obviously, in context, his faith.

No one can live by someone else's faith.

The Bible also speaks of "faith which worketh by love" (Galatians 5:6) and of "the breastplate of faith and love" (1 Thessalonians 5:8),
