FAITH

October 18th, 2010 | Author: Douglas

Hebrews 11:1

Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.

IT IS VITALLY IMPORTANT THAT HEBREWS 11:1 TO 12:3 ARE READ NEAR THE BOTTOM OF THIS CHAPTER SO AS TO SEE OUTSTANDING EXAMPLES OF FAITH.

The above Scripture is placed right at the top of the introduction of this topic due to their extreme importance.Noah most probably knew what boats and ships looked like. That was most probably the full extent of his knowledge of any, or all, sea-faring vessels. Noah, a boat builder – most probably not! A sea, or dam of sorts, nearby, especially to accommodate such a large vessel, most probably not!

Rain – a totally unknown entity. Never before seen or even heard of. Also that water falling from OUR heaven had the capability to lift the Ark! All that Noah had was his faith! Noah loved Jehovah God far too much to even doubt Him slightly.

Achieving faith is not as easy as “I was drinking alcohol at the bar counter and Jesus saved me!”, OR “I have accepted Jesus as my Saviour!”, etc!

Firstly a person has to know of their own spiritual needs, and from there on to take the Bible and after reading the Bible, to start accurately studying the Bible with persons that have accurate knowledge thereof. Then, when progress is made, and the following fallacies have been laid to rest, namely:

The Trinity,

The Hellfire,

The Evolution Theory

The Immortality of the Soul

That the Soul leaves the body at the point of death, and many other fallacies, –

then to actually start “knowing, loving, appreciating, obeying Jehovah God, and eventually knowing in full about His Kingdom that is coming under the rule of His Son, Christ Jesus.

Faith is difficult to achieve and hold on to, but once that point has been achieved, then there cannot easily be a turning back, as the experience of TRUE FAITH is exhilarating, and “SETS YOU FREE”! The Bible also warns that there will be people that falsely say that there is PEACE, when there is NO PEACE. Well, when you experience TRUE FAITH, then you start experiencing TRUE INTERNAL PEACE and this PEACE has nothing to do with physical PEACE. Before Armageddon the peoples of this world system are INCAPABLE of living in any PEACE whatsoever.

From the above it is always considered that the “NO PEACE” mentioned is strife, war, crime and all other maladies, but the fact is that it is what the human race is experiencing in their actual lives. Stress, anxiety, depression, anger, frustration and all the other negative feelings are the causes of there being “NO PEACE”.

The very young, not so young, older and elderly persons, all that enjoy massive wealth, fame and wield great influence, are using all kinds of drugs and alcohol to quieten the pain of “emptiness” in their lives that causes them “NO PEACE” and much disquieting pain. Many of them are either committing or contemplating suicide.

Let us see what the Bible Scriptures below state about FAITH:

Proverbs 2:7

And for the upright ones he will treasure up practical wisdom; for those walking in integrity he is a shield, (“practical” here is the key word. There are billions of people that believe Jehovah God is not practical, and it is for this reason that they believe that you have to have faith. You must just believe, irrespective of what happens. This is not practical or logical. Take the following reasoning as an example:  “ I do not have money to put oil in my motorcar engine, so I will fill the sump with water, and just believe that the motorcar will operate properly”.  Just as impractical the previous is about having that FAITH just so impractical it is to have FAITH in something that you do not really understand. Remember, there are billions that believe that everything that happens is controlled by Jehovah God, and if you are one of them, then, the water in the engine would be His will. When the motorcar’s engine seizes up, then it will be Him that is supposedly testing your faith or something like that. There are billions and billions of similarly impractical assumptions that are made, but the above example about the motorcar engine is just as stupid and impractical as the rest.)

Proverbs 22:19

For your confidence to come to be in Jehovah himself I have given you knowledge today, even you.  (Knowledge is the direct opposite of impracticability. Knowledge means “the knowing of”, and can be on its own, without faith. With Jehovah God, however, the knowledge gives all the reason why you should have faith. You have “the knowing of” why you must have the faith that Jehovah God speaks about.)

Isaiah 25:9

And in that day one will certainly say: “Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.”

Isaiah 26:4

Trust in Jehovah, YOU people, for all times, for in Jah Jehovah is the Rock of times indefinite.  (Faith, trust and hope have always been high on Jehovah God’s priority list. Know this your future and eternal life depends on it.)

Isaiah 30:18

And therefore Jehovah will keep in expectation of showing YOU favour, and therefore he will rise up to show YOU mercy. For Jehovah is a God of judgment. Happy are all those keeping in expectation of him. (Mercy is a major quality of Jehovah God, and here again faith and hope are highlighted. This Scripture also highlights the fact why Jehovah God has not brought Armageddon to bear yet, as He Is “keeping in expectation of showing YOU favour”, which means that He is hoping that you will repent and truly become one of His children into eternity timeously.)

Isaiah 30:19

When the very people in Zion will dwell in Jerusalem, you will by no means weep. He will without fail show you at the sound of your outcry; as soon as he hears it he will actually answer you.

Isaiah 33:22

For Jehovah is our Judge, Jehovah is our Statute-giver, Jehovah is our King; he himself will save us. (Faith in Jehovah God’s promise to those who are obedient, learn to know Him, and do his will.)

Isaiah 37:20

And now, O Jehovah our God, save us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that  you, O Jehovah, are [God] alone.” (Accurate Bible knowledge and truth will be made known, but faith is a necessity.)

Isaiah 43:10

“YOU are my witnesses,” is the utterance of Jehovah, “even my servant whom I have chosen, in order that YOU may know and have faith in me, and that YOU may understand that I am the same One. Before me there was no God formed, and after me there continued to be none. (Accurate Bible knowledge, resulting in boundless faith, will make for the understanding of Jehovah God’s plans and promises, resulting in obedient people doing His will, and telling others about Him and His purpose. Witnessing about Him and His coming Kingdom is of vital importance. Jesus Christ was the first-born of Jehovah God, and was created by Jehovah God. Jesus spent most of his earthly life witnessing and preaching about his Heavenly Father. Remember, Jesus was an example for humans.)

Isaiah 51:7

“Listen to me, YOU the ones knowing righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law. Do not be afraid of the reproach of mortal men, and do not be struck with terror just because of their abusive words.

Isaiah 60:9

For in me the islands themselves will keep hoping, the ships of Tar’shish also as at the first, in order to bring your sons from far away, their silver and their gold being with them, to the name of Jehovah your God and to the Holy One of Israel, for he will have beautified you. (The “islands” refer to the people who are endeavouring to do Jehovah God’s will, and the faith they cling to. The “seas” refer to the ungodly people. This will be shown out of the Bible at a later stage. The “seas” “surround” the “islands” as everyone is aware. There are very few good people, and they are few and far between billions of wicked people.)

Hosea 11:7

And my people are tending toward unfaithfulness to me. And upward they call it; no one at all does any rising up. (Jehovah God is saddened by His people’s decision to be unfaithful. It always was, and still is, His desire that all should be saved. Each and every person has the right to choose their future, and it is quite frightening that most people have “all the answers” when most of them seldom open their Bibles regularly, except when in troubled or difficult times, and then they cannot accept that Jehovah God takes His time in assisting them, or does not answer them.)

Joel 2:32

And it must occur that everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will get away safe; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will prove to be the escaped ones, just as Jehovah has said, and in among the survivors, whom Jehovah is calling.” (A definite promise that Jehovah God says he will save those calling upon His Name. Calling on His name does not just mean screaming for help when tragedy strikes, but getting to know, accurately, your Father in Heaven. Also learning to love Him with the love due such a glorious Father and that love should be accompanied with selfless and willing obedience. There should also be the full realization that every aspect concerning your Heavenly Father is totally in your perfect interests.)

Habakkuk 2:3

3 For [the] vision is yet for the appointed time, and it keeps panting on to the end, and it will not tell a lie. Even if it should delay, keep in expectation of it; for it will without fail come true. It will not be late. (Unfortunately nothing is so bad that it cannot become worse. The conditions that exist today, however, are so indicative that circumstances are so bad, that to be able to become worse, would border on complete turmoil. This inevitably would be the start of Armageddon, and the arrival of Jehovah God’s appointed time. The occurring of Armageddon will be the only time Jehovah God physically again intervenes in earthly matters, and although the conditions become unbelievably worse, this will not affect Jehovah God’s timing. Being Omniscient, Jehovah God knows exactly when, why and what will happen, and when He will have to take action.)

Zephaniah 3:8

“‘Therefore keep yourselves in expectation of me,’ is the utterance of Jehovah, ‘till the day of my rising up to [the] booty, for my judicial decision is to gather nations, for me to collect together kingdoms, in order to pour out upon them my denunciation, all my burning anger; for by the fire of my zeal all the earth will be devoured. (Jehovah God warns us to be expecting His destruction of all the wicked ones. In other words, to do His will all the time. Fire in the Bible depicts eternal destruction, total extinction of wicked people. People are not immortal, and will not burn in hell or anywhere else if they were wicked. The word “earth” also depicts people in certain contexts in the Bible, and also, as Jehovah God is going to destroy the Devil, if there was a hell-fire then Jehovah God himself would have to keep it going into eternity, which Jehovah God is not capable of even thinking of. It is ultimately important to realise that, if a person dies, it would be as if that person’s own personal Armageddon has arrived. Human resurrection is only going to occur during Jehovah God’s appointed time, so all who have died are figuratively “at” Armageddon’s door, or “passed” through Armageddon’s door. As life is fraught with danger and possible imminent death, it, therefore, is important to realise that violence, an accident or whatever could cause your death, even today, and that then places you at “YOUR” Armageddon’s door, and judgment by Jehovah God. So, although Armageddon might still be a short while into the future, your death could be just around the corner, so to say. Stay alert.)

Matthew 5:18

18 for truly I say to YOU that sooner would heaven and earth pass away than for one smallest letter or one particle of a letter to pass away from the Law by any means and not all things take place. (The Bible is not old-fashioned, was inspired by Jehovah God, and written for the period after the earth’s creation, and will be valid until Jehovah God’s Kingdom is established in Heaven and on the entire earth. It is a common practice that false religious leaders adjust the wording, meaning and content of the Bible for many various reasons, such as popular opinion, etc. The acceptance of homosexual practices and even homosexual marriages is but one of these deviations.)

Matthew 6:34

So, never be anxious about the next day, for the next day will have its own anxieties. Sufficient for each day is its own badness. (Do your best today, and every day, and have faith and trust in Jehovah God.)

Matthew 9:22

Jesus turned around and, noticing her, said: “Take courage, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And from that hour the woman became well.

Matthew 10:22

And YOU will be objects of hatred by all people on account of my name; but he that has endured to the end is the one that will be saved. (Satan’s loyal workers were just too pleased to serve him, and when they are exposed will constitute a danger to Jehovah God’s “loyal workers”. According to this Scripture the TRUE message from Jehovah God will not only be unpopular but even hated. Does it appear if any of the false religious leaders are hated? I think not. They rather enjoy great wealth and prominence).

Matthew 11:30

For my yoke is kindly and my load is light.” (It seems to be burdensome to change one’s ways of living, and also to find the time to do Jehovah God’s work, but in proper perspective, the truth of the above verse is surprisingly true. When accurate Bible knowledge is known, the resultant FAITH and HOPE make one extremely desirous and actually excited to hasten to change and do Jehovah God’s will to the best of one’s ability.

I am now going to compare what it costs to obtain earthly personal insurance that is very temporary and mostly unreliable to what it costs to have the assurance from Jehovah God that you can achieve eternal life. For instance, the insurance premium paid for the insurance of one’s life, or medical expenses, is not actually financial. Work has to be performed to obtain those monies. So a certain number of hours are to be “toiled” to pay for the insurance. The life insurance especially, only has temporary benefits.

Attending any false religion church is also time-consuming, and then of no value at all. It is actually sad to see all the time and fuel wasted by misguided believers. Then there are the billions of persons trying to build material possessions, and “toiling” most of their waking hours in pursuit thereof. Even their families suffer in most cases.

Now I will go back to the meaning of the real and true religion and placing it in proper perspective. The insurance premium for eternal life in paradise conditions is firstly ensuring that you get to know Jehovah our Almighty God. Every second spent in doing so really adds to the guarantee of true and substantial rewards, if perseverance is attained. Getting to know all the persons that are involved in earthly life insurance has absolutely no value. Getting to know the Insurer of eternal life on earth, and His Son, Jesus, is an entirely different situation. When the personality of Jehovah God and Jesus become personal accurate knowledge, then real and true life take on real and true meaning.

Further, if most people can but touch an earthly, very popular “celebrity” that has no other benefit, then they cannot wait to tell all and sundry, or to shout it out and to brag about it as much as possible. Billions of hours are wasted in this foolish way. Now, to get to know the Almighty and Omnipotent Jehovah God and His Son, Jesus, and for Them to know your every thought and desire, and for love to be mutually shared, what more could be of any significant value. If you are one of those fortunate persons, then the yoke would be kindly and the load light, and also, it should actually be extremely difficult to try and keep that person quiet from his or her “bragging”, and trying to tell others that they all, too can receive the love of Jehovah God and Jesus, and then also continuously “brag” about it, and spread it to others, especially those that they love and care for here on earth.

So, actually everything that is obtained physically is to be “toiled” for. So why is it so difficult that everything SPIRITUAL should not then also be “worked” for, where the word “toiled” expresses laborious work with temporary benefits and the word “worked” expresses the activity of obtaining everlasting life  for you and your loved ones as a benefit.)

Matthew 12:40

For just as Jo´nah was in the belly of the huge fish three days and three nights, so the Son of man will be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. (Many Bible statements and stated occurrences are now of late being brought into question. For instance: “There was no global Flood!” Or “It is impossible that Jonah could be in the belly of a huge fish, never mind surviving for three days!” or the spreading of the story that “Jesus’ body was eaten by dogs!” etc. So quite obviously, these untruths are being spread and so easily believed. It is, therefore, being accepted by some that Jesus was never resurrected. A further development in a prominent church is that it has accepted that their preachers may be “gay” but may not practise the act of being “gay”.  Further, it will be each and every congregation’s decision if “gays” in their congregations may practise the act of being “gay”. The Bible states that Jonah was in the belly of the fish, and Jesus was in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights. Believe what the Bible says. If Jehovah God can create the universe as we know it, a person in a fish would be easy. If you state or advocate otherwise, then you are committing the “unforgivable” sin of speaking against the Holy Spirit in that you are calling Jehovah God a liar. To believe all the miracles in Biblical times requires FAITH.)

Mark 16:16

He that believes and is baptized will be saved, but he that does not believe will be condemned. (To be able to believe requires FAITH.)

Mark 16:17

Furthermore, these signs will accompany those believing: By the use of my name they will expel demons, they will speak with tongues, (To be able to believe requires FAITH.)

Luke 5:12

On a further occasion while he was in one of the cities, look! a man full of leprosy! When he caught sight of Jesus he fell upon his face and begged him, saying: “Lord, if you just want to, you can make me clean.” (Jesus did not have to think about it, his faith was childlike, i.e. PERFECT.)

Luke 11:9

Accordingly I say to YOU, Keep on asking, and it will be given YOU; keep on seeking, and YOU will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to YOU. (Persistence and faith, especially in prayer, will bear fruit.)

Luke 16:10

The person faithful in what is least is faithful also in much, and the person unrighteous in what is least is unrighteous also in much.

Luke 17:19

And he said to him: “Rise and be on your way; your faith has made you well.”

Luke 18:1

Then he went on to tell them an illustration with regard to the need for them always to pray and not give up, (Maintain having faith.)

Luke 18:7

Certainly, then, shall not God cause justice to be done for his chosen ones who cry out to him day and night, even though he is long-suffering toward them?  (Persistent Faith and Prayer if sincere will be rewarded with justice by our Creator, Jehovah God..)

Luke 18:16

However, Jesus called the [infants] to him, saying: “Let the young children come to me, and do not try to stop them. For the kingdom of God belongs to suchlike ones. (The example is excellent in that a child does not rely on his own opinions, decisions and reasoning, but has faith in his parents, that they are always right and there for him. If you speak to a very young child about Jesus they are absolutely intrigued and so willing to try and please Jesus that you can get them to do almost anything you want them to do by just saying: “You will make Jesus so happy!” The example just given is just to indicate their total unblemished and pure faith, although the concept is not in essence actually right. I am not being petty but even the parents do not give Jehovah God due honour and those little children are totally unaware of His existence.)

Luke 23:39 – 44 Summary

And he went on to say: “Jesus, remember me when you get into your kingdom.” (The one prisoner hanging on the torture stake spoke abusively to Jesus, whereas the other one rebuked the first one, and asked Jesus to remember him when he was in his Kingdom. Jesus promised the evildoer, on that day, that he would be in paradise with Jesus. Even the evildoer knew that Jesus would only in the future be in his Kingdom, and thus knew that he would have to be resurrected after the end of this system of things, and not on the day that he was hanging on the torture stake. Although it can appear that Jesus meant that very same day, reasoning makes it impossible, as Jesus did not go to his Kingdom when he was murdered, but was buried for three days. Also, the sinner said: “WHEN”. Even the evildoer had faith that Jesus could save him.)

Luke 23:46

And Jesus called with a loud voice and said: “Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit.”  When he had said this, he expired. (Here Jesus entrusts his spirit (not his soul) to Jehovah God. Jesus was non-existent, but he had placed any future existence into the hand of his Father, in total faith. Anybody that states that Jesus did not die like a normal human, and that Jesus was not at that time only a mortal man, who had ceased to exist, is according to the Bible, one of the many antichrists. Also, that person is committing an unforgivable sin, unforgivable into eternity. At the time of his death the future of the living power of Jesus, his spirit, was in Jehovah God’s hands.)

John 3:15 & 16

15 that everyone believing in him may have everlasting life. 16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life. (Incomparable love displayed by Jehovah God. Jesus was brutally murdered to enable us to live eternally on earth in paradise conditions. The condition was that we had the faith that this would be so if we knew and did Jehovah God’s perfect will to the best of our ability willingly and obediently. Also, we have to extend this possibility to as many persons as possible, by telling them of this glorious opportunity to accept the truth of the Bible, and thus make the murder of Jesus appreciated by as many humans as possible. In other words, we are instructed to gain accurate knowledge about Jehovah God, and preach. Jehovah God sent His Son down to earth to die so that, even if a believer dies, he will be resurrected. Death will have been defeated. If the believer perseveres in exercising faith he will have everlasting life.)

John 5:24

Most truly I say to YOU, He that hears my word and believes him that sent me has everlasting life, and he does not come into judgment but has passed over from death to life. (Jesus was sent, and murdered for our sakes, to enable us to receive everlasting life if we are steadfast in our faith.)

John 6:40

For this is the will of my Father, that everyone that beholds the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him at the last day.” (Jesus is not Jehovah God.)

John 6:47

Most truly I say to YOU, He that believes has everlasting life.

John 11:26

26 and everyone that is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this?”(An ultimately important Scripture, because it confirms that certain people will never taste death at all. Noah and of his family never died during the Flood! But, unlike Noah that died later, people who go through Armageddon will not die then and most of them will never ever die at all. Many, when the Devil is let loose again, will persevere, and again go through the trials, without dying, into everlasting life. So some people are never ever going to die. This seems so farfetched to humans, that Jehovah God  in the Bible asks “Do you believe this?” Only persevering, exercising faith, and learning to know and love Jehovah God and Jesus and others, and doing Jehovah God’s will correctly, is all that is required.)

Acts 5:29

In answer Peter and the [other] apostles said: “We must obey God as ruler rather than men. (To obey Jehovah God requires faith as persecution and other painful deeds might be experienced.)

Acts 14:27

When they had arrived and had gathered the congregation together, they proceeded to relate the many things God had done by means of them, and that he had opened to the nations the door to faith. (Take note: All the things done by Jesus when he was on earth and the things done by the apostles, and all other miracles were performed by Jehovah God. The persons were only instrumental in performing what Jehovah God required to occur.)

Acts 20:24

Nevertheless, I do not make my soul of any account as dear to me, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received of the Lord Jesus, to bear thorough witness to the good news of the undeserved kindness of God. (The apostle did not consider his earthly life at all. All he desired to do was to persevere in exercising faith in Jehovah God and Jesus, and witnessing about them. Life is worthless unless accurate Bible knowledge of Jehovah God and Jesus is understood, and perseverance in faith and truth and willing obedience is always maintained to the end.)

Acts 21:13

Then Paul answered: “What are YOU doing by weeping and making me weak at heart? Rest assured, I am ready not only to be bound but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.” (It required FAITH for Paul to be able to accept what was going to be done to him by LEADERS and MEMBERS of FALSE RELIGION that were actually supposed to be representing Jehovah God in TRUTH. FALSE RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND THEIR FOLLOWERS  HAVE CONTINUED TO CARRY THEIR EVIL MISLEADING WAYS THROUGH TO THIS DAY.)

Romans 1:8

First of all, I give thanks to my God through Jesus Christ concerning all of YOU, because YOUR faith is talked about throughout the whole world. (A “faith” will be talked about throughout the whole world. The Bible is recognised throughout the whole world, but with numerous translations of the meanings of the Scriptures. A search for a “faith” that speaks in unity throughout the world is a prerequisite for eternal bonding in peace, and paradise that will last eternally. The Jehovah’s Witnesses “preach “ in unity throughout the earth today, and not only have to strictly obey the laws of the land they live in that do not clash with Jehovah God’s laws, but are also not prepared to wage war against one another and so possibly murder one of their own spiritual family.)

Romans 1:9

For God, to whom I render sacred service with my spirit in connection with the good news about his Son, is my witness of how without ceasing I always make mention of YOU in my prayers, (The importance of persistency in prayers, especially for others, is mentioned. The good news of Jehovah God’s Kingdom and Jesus must be prayerfully requested for all, to enable possible acceptance. Through the resurrection of Jesus undeserved kindness was spread to all nations, and Jesus was even then the mediator between Jehovah God and the apostles after going up to Heaven. Persistency requires faith, as the wiles of Satan are mainly aimed at destroying faith, amongst all the other good intentions of the persons.)

Romans 1:11 & 12

11 For I am longing to see YOU, that I may impart some spiritual gift to YOU in order for YOU to be made firm; 12 or, rather, that there may be an interchange of encouragement among YOU, by each one through the other’s faith, both YOURS and mine.

Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the good news; it is, in fact, God’s power for salvation to everyone having faith, to the Jew first and also to the Greek; (A person must have the accurate Bible knowledge to thoroughly understand that it is not to be ashamed to witness about, and proclaim Jehovah God’s Kingdom, to every person, as and when possible. It must be joyous to tell others of your hope.)

Romans 2:15

They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts, while their conscience is bearing witness with them and, between their own thoughts, they are being accused or even excused.(Faith is required to really believe and have Jehovah God’s desires engraved on your heart.)

Romans 4:16

On this account it was as a result of faith, that it might be according to undeserved kindness, in order for the promise to be sure to all his seed, not only to that which adheres to the Law, but also to that which adheres to the faith of Abraham. (Abraham, by his faith, became the father of all WHO ARE FOUND TO BE ACCEPTABLE BY Jehovah God to be in His eternal Kingdom.)

Romans 7:25

Thanks to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So, then, with [my] mind I myself am a slave to God’s law, but with [my] flesh to sin’s law. (Fleshly desires are the danger zone as good intentions are easily bypassed and good intentions alone are not good enough. Faith without works is dead. A person uses his mind to serve Jehovah God. The body is just the physical tool. So you serve Jehovah God with your mind, or sin with your mind’s fleshly desires.)

Romans 8:35

Who will separate us from the love of the Christ? Will tribulation or distress or persecution or hunger or nakedness or danger or sword? (Condition yourself to persevere to the point of death, even if you have to suffer immensely. The mind is powerful enough to switch off to anything that it does not want to accept, and with the love of Jehovah God and Jesus, the motivation is all powerful. Faith, however, is the most compelling force, as that faith will condition the persons mind.)

Romans 10:4

For Christ is the end of the Law, so that everyone exercising faith may have righteousness. (Jesus makes a law unnecessary, as faith in the law of love covers everything.)

Romans 10:9

For if you publicly declare that ‘word in your own mouth,’ that Jesus is Lord, and exercise faith in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved. (A person must exercise faith in your heart that Jehovah God raised Jesus, not Himself, but His Son, from the dead, and you must publicly declare or witness about this so that all have the chance to obtain undeserved kindness.)

Romans 10:10

For with the heart one exercises faith for righteousness, but with the mouth one makes public declaration for salvation.

Romans 10:14

However, how will they call on him in whom they have not put faith? How, in turn, will they put faith in him of whom they have not heard? How, in turn, will they hear without someone to preach? (This is why Jehovah God instructs people who have accurate knowledge to go out and preach. They owe it to every living person to inform them. This is how they got to know about Jehovah God, through others that also preached.)

Romans 16:26

but has now been made manifest and has been made known through the prophetic scriptures among all the nations in accord with the command of the everlasting God to promote obedience by faith; (This verse verifies that prophecy has proved the Bible to be, not only the truth, but the inspired writing of Jehovah God, as so far most of all prophecies have come to be. So humans have no choice but to explicitly believe what Jehovah God has promised, if we are obedient. This obedience is not similar to human desired obedience. Human desired obedience is normally based on, or motivated by greed, and also enforces the undesirable of one person over another. Jehovah God’s desired obedience is fully earned, and justified, and also fully to human benefit. Through prophecy Jehovah God has proved to be worthy of humans having total faith in Him and His abilities.)

1 Corinthians 10:13

No temptation has taken YOU except what is common to men. But God is faithful, and he will not let YOU be tempted beyond what YOU can bear, but along with the temptation he will also make the way out in order for YOU to be able to endure it. (This Scripture is as for 1 Corinthians 6:19, but with the inclusion of Jehovah God’s promise that humans will not be tried by the Devil beyond their endurance. Also, Jehovah God being faithful will keep His promise. Is it also not wonderful to know that Jehovah God also states that He is ALSO faithful to us? We should be faithful in return.)

1 Corinthians 13:13

Now, however, there remain faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.

2 Corinthians 4:16

Therefore we do not give up, but even if the man we are outside is wasting away, certainly the man we are inside is being renewed from day to day. (It can only be with the hope of everlasting life that a renewal of the spiritual side of a person can be renewed on a continuous daily basis, but faith is required that the person will be able to persevere in following that actual desire of the future.)

2 Corinthians 13:5

Keep testing whether YOU are in the faith, keep proving what YOU yourselves are. Or do YOU not recognize that Jesus Christ is in union with YOU? Unless YOU are disapproved. (Because Jesus was a mere human he was weaker than the Devil and so had to die. Jehovah God, however, being Almighty easily overturned the death and now Jesus rules over everything. His Father is still allowing Satan the Devil, a little more time. It is our responsibility that we measure our faith all the time, to ensure that we still are in union with Jesus. There is only ONE TRUTH, one RELIGION and  one FAITH.)

Galatians 2:20

I am impaled along with Christ. It is no longer I that live, but it is Christ that is living in union with me. Indeed, the life that I now live in flesh I live by the faith that is toward the Son of God, who loved me and handed himself over for me. (Paul considered himself to have taken a new personality, not physically, but with a change of mind and attitude, thus no fleshly desires or weaknesses. Paul, one of the 144 000, states that even though he had not died and was still a human, he had died according to the ways of humans, and devoted his being to the doing of Jehovah God’s will totally, and became as a son, as well as a willing slave, to Jehovah God.)

Galatians 3:7 – 9

7 Surely YOU know that those who adhere to faith are the ones who are sons of Abraham. 8 Now the Scripture, seeing in advance that God would declare people of the nations righteous due to faith, declared the good news beforehand to Abraham, namely: “By means of you all the nations will be blessed.” 9 Consequently those who adhere to faith are being blessed together with faithful Abraham. (As for Gal.3:8, but also importance of adhering to faith is emphasized. This is another prophecy that came true as now all the nations are included and not only the physical Jews are considered as children of Jehovah God. It is an accepted fact that Jehovah God loves all with the hope that they change their ways. However, those that do not change will have to be destroyed by Jehovah God, due to His original love for those who do change.)

Galatians 3:12

Now the Law does not adhere to faith, but “he that does them shall live by means of them.” (Laws are laid down and are obeyed or disobeyed without faith having any significance.)

Galatians 3:26

YOU are all, in fact, sons of God through YOUR faith in Christ Jesus. (All nations are included with faith here being one of the operative factors required to possibly qualify for eternal life.)

Galatians 5:5

For our part we by spirit are eagerly waiting for the hoped-for righteousness as a result of faith.

Galatians 5:22 – 24

On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Moreover, those who belong to Christ Jesus impaled the flesh together with its passions and desires.

Ephesians 1:1

Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus through God’s will, to the holy ones who are [in Eph´e·sus] and faithful ones in union with Christ Jesus: (Confirmation that Jehovah God, and not Jesus, chose Paul as an apostle.)

Ephesians 4:4 – 6

4 One body there is, and one spirit, even as YOU were called in the one hope to which YOU were called; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all [persons], who is over all and through all and in all. (The word “one” is emphasized – so there definitely is only one truth in the Bible. It is very plain that there is a Heavenly Class and an earthly class, according to the Bible, and the “one hope” is that a true Christian will receive everlasting life, either as one of the Heavenly Class, or one of the earthly class. How many religions preach this? Also one body denotes your physical attributes, and also is known as your soul when combined with your spirit or “person”. In other words you are a soul. The “one spirit” denotes the person you are. The spirit is what you think and thus do, and the body is the equipment that carries out your will.  In all the above Scriptures, however, the “body” and “spirit” is similar to the example just given, except that in these Scriptures they are used to convey that the “body” is the combined Heavenly and earthly portions of Jehovah God’s Kingdom, and the one “spirit” is the one force that motivates them to become Jehovah God’s true “children”. Verse 5 unequivocally states “one faith” and “one faith” cannot have many different explanations. Also “one Lord” is also stated, so Jesus is also a person, and, therefore, is also the Son of Jehovah God, and all other true Christians are children of Jehovah God.)

Ephesians 6:13 – 18

13 On this account take up the complete suit of armour from God, that YOU may be able to resist in the wicked day and, after YOU have done all things thoroughly, to stand firm. 14 Stand firm, therefore, with YOUR loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and with YOUR feet shod with the equipment of the good news of peace. 16 Above all things, take up the large shield of faith, with which YOU will be able to quench all the wicked one’s burning missiles. 17 Also, accept the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit, that is, God’s word, 18 while with every form of prayer and supplication YOU carry on prayer on every occasion in spirit. And to that end keep awake with all constancy and with supplication in behalf of all the holy ones, (Ephesians 6:13 – 18 implores humans to gain accurate knowledge of Jehovah God’s Word, the Bible. This will result in faith in Jehovah God and Jesus, and the meaning they give to life. When armed with such faith, and having accurate knowledge of the Devil’s strengths and weaknesses, and then being able to persevere, the ultimate goal in a human’s life, Jehovah God’s love, will be received. Jehovah God’s word and many prayers and supplications are vital weapons against evils and spiritual dangers. The above verses also seriously warn us to study continuously. The more you study, the more your thoughts are concentrated on what Jehovah God requires of you.

Everything works that way. If you think long enough about your need to have a new or better motorcar, then it will not be long before it becomes a powerfully motivated need, whether actual or not. Just so, the need to know Jehovah God will grow on you, as you learn to know more about Him. Once you really understand accurate Bible knowledge, then you will know that the only reason Jehovah God wants you is the same reason a good parent wants his children. Jehovah God wants to spoil you with love, undeserved kindness, protection and every other indescribable pleasure and comfort that we would not be able to perceive as humans in this wicked world. Remember, Jehovah God is the ULTIMATE Parent. Unfortunately, we have to travel down a road in this present world that is fraught with all kinds of danger. Now our Heavenly Father can only give us guidance, due to His love for His other children. If we do not listen to Him, we can and will die, but if we listen to Him, even though we get hurt or die, He will take us to His home, paradise conditions on this earth. If we are of the 144 000 Heavenly Class, we will be with His Son. There He will look after us forever.

Most people enjoy fairy tales that have good endings. This is no fairy tale, so why not try to achieve the happy ending. In our wicked world today, whenever you are promised something that sounds good, it is mostly always followed by those evil, condemning and misleading words “terms and conditions apply”. There are also conditions required with the promise Jehovah God makes. There is a difference though. The most important is that you will not be deceived.

Also, even if you do not strive to go to paradise as a child of Jehovah God, and you adhere to His good behavioural pattern, then you will be honest, reliable, conscientious, a reliable worker, loyal, clean and scrupulously beyond deceit. This will gain you respect, even from adverse persons. Respecting all other persons, will ensure that you do no crime, love your family, treat all with respect and mildness and live a contented life, knowing that you have done your best, and that you enjoy the peace of mind that comes with being a good person.

So, now you just add to that, accurate Bible knowledge about Jehovah God and Jesus, and their purposes and plans, which will inevitably lead to great faith, trust and eventual love of Jehovah God and Jesus. You will then exercise that faith and obedience to Jehovah God, and tell others about Them. Without Jehovah God, you will eventually die into eternity, but with Jehovah God you will have the blessings of the ultimately good Father spoken of above. So only the eventuality changes, except for the ultimate fact that you have the Almighty Powerful Father protecting you, so your life now comes with a new aim and a joyful purpose. Everlasting life in Paradise, which will be on our present earth will then be your GIFT from Jehovah God. Nature’s beauty, when not soiled by humans, confirms this.

Remember, without Jehovah God, if you live an evil or good life, your pathway through this life is fraught with danger. Drunkards die, loose morals beget AIDS and other maladies, gaol is the result of crime, a three month old child is raped and murdered, and there are plenty other examples. So, without Jehovah God you are really alone, and that is a fact. Now to the terms and conditions: To be with Jehovah God, requires having accurate Bible knowledge, and exercising the faith you then fully understand. Your enemy is the Devil. He is intelligent and his schemes are so devious and evil. The worst weapon against mankind is the doubt about yourself that the Devil so easily makes you feel by means of your conscience. Another bad weapon is the good life. If you have everything, then you can easily fall into the trap of becoming materialistic or far too contented to remember the importance of exercising that faith. Remember too, the Bible states that accurate BIBLE knowledge and real faith are as weapons against the Devil, and also, a shield that protects you from the Devil. The spiritual suit of armour consists of many pieces, and all have a significant meaning as to what part of the person they spiritually protect.)

1Timothy 1:3 – 5

3 Just as I encouraged you to stay in Eph´e·sus when I was about to go my way into Mac·e·do´ni·a, so I do now, that you might command certain ones not to teach different doctrine, 4 nor to pay attention to false stories and to genealogies, which end up in nothing, but which furnish questions for research rather than a dispensing of anything by God in connection with faith. 5 Really the objective of this mandate is love out of a clean heart and out of a good conscience and out of faith without hypocrisy. (These Scriptures are indicative of the warning that different doctrines can easily be introduced into true and accurate Biblical teachings, and so cause many false religions to appear, and be easily accepted by people that do not go to the trouble of establishing what is accurate knowledge, and what not. 1 Timothy 1:4: Here too is the warning about what learned people in other fields of education offer as absolute, and also the warning that the research that  excludes what Jehovah God gives us as truth. Evolution is an example of such false doctrines given by learned people.

Evolution is very deceitfully and subtly introduced into our daily lives. Every so often the “remains” of “this or that” are found that are so many millions of years old. Firstly, how much money that could otherwise have been much more wisely spent is wasted on information that THEY consider important but I cannot see an iota of significance in? Secondly, against what measuring tool do they measure the “AGE” of their findings? If they are that good why can they not determine to the exact second in time when the person died when a body that still has most flesh on it and was exposed to the elements is discovered? Thirdly: Why are they committing the forever unforgivable sin of speaking against the Holy Spirit by calling Jehovah God a LIAR and advocating this to so many misguided persons? From calculations from the Bible the creation of our world is less than sixty thousand years ago! It is apparently a fact that in the United States of America that the powers that be want the doctrine of the Evolution to be introduced fully in their schools. How often does one not see pictures of pre-historic humans, and often enough dragging the females by their hair? The nearest to the truth is that the persons that advocate and believe in the Evolution doctrine are spiritually formed in the “image of their god” and not in the Image of Jehovah God. )

1Timothy 1:16 & 17

16 Nevertheless, the reason why I was shown mercy was that by means of me as the foremost case Christ Jesus might demonstrate all his long-suffering for a sample of those who are going to rest their faith on him for everlasting life. 17 Now to the King of eternity, incorruptible, invisible, [the] only God, be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen. (Paul was a persecutor of Jehovah God’s Children, because he had blindly followed false religion based on tradition and deception. He sincerely considered that he was doing what was the will of Jehovah God. So he was a strong believer and doer, and sincere. As Jehovah God was the only Person who could read the hearts and thoughts of all other persons at that point in time, He knew Paul to be an exceptionally good man, so Jehovah God directed Paul in truth, faith, accurate knowledge and understanding. Paul is now in Heaven as one of the 144 000 Heavenly Class.)

1Timothy 4:1 – 5

1 However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons, 2 by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies, marked in their conscience as with a branding iron; 3 forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be partaken of with thanksgiving by those who have faith and accurately know the truth. 4. The reason for this is that every creation of God is fine, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 15 for it is sanctified through God’s word and prayer over [it]. (1 Tim 4:1 – 5 warns of all the people that will fall away due to false teachings, such as the Trinity, Evolution – the Big Bang, not to eat this or that, not to abstain from blood, etc. Also, the love of money, traditions, love of oneself, no love for others, greed, unjust profit, and many more snares are reasons for people falling away from TRUE FAITH.)

1Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains.

1Timothy 6:20 – 21

20 O Timothy, guard what is laid up in trust with you, turning away from the empty speeches that violate what is holy and from the contradictions of the falsely called “knowledge.” 21. For making a show of such [knowledge] some have deviated from the faith. May the undeserved kindness be with YOU people.

Titus 1:1 & 2

1 Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ according to the faith of God’s chosen ones and the accurate knowledge of the truth which accords with godly devotion 2 upon the basis of a hope of the everlasting life which God, who cannot lie, promised before times long lasting, (Jehovah God cannot lie and has made promises from long ago, so in other words the Bible can never be outdated or old-fashioned, or not aware of present, or future conditions. Further, the Bible keeps referring to accurate Bible knowledge of the truth which accords with godly devotion. So it must be accepted that there is only one truth and one true faith, and no possible other translations.)

Hebrews 3:6

3 but Christ [was faithful] as a Son over the house of that One. We are the house of that One, if we make fast our hold on our freeness of speech and our boasting over the hope firm to the end. (We see that Jesus is, and was, always faithful over the house of Jehovah God. All people that do the will of Jehovah God make up the house of Jehovah God. So Jesus is actually faithful to the persons than persevere in doing the will of Jehovah God, and actually brag, or boast, about the firm hope that they have. Just as the people who persevere in doing the will of Jehovah God are referred to as the “house” of Jehovah God, just so are the same people, when taken in total numbers, referred to as Spiritual “Israel”, a nation of Jehovah God.)

Hebrews 3:19

So we see that they could not enter in because of lack of faith.

Hebrews 11:1

Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld.

Hebrews 11:1-12:3

11:1 Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for, the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld. 2. For by means of this the men of old times had witness borne to them. 3. By faith we perceive that the systems of things were put in order by God’s word, so that what is beheld has come to be out of things that do not appear. 4. By faith Abel offered God a sacrifice of greater worth than Cain, through which [faith] he had witness borne to him that he was righteous, God bearing witness respecting his gifts; and through it he, although he died, yet speaks. 5. By faith E´noch was transferred so as not to see death, and he was nowhere to be found because God had transferred him; for before his transference he had the witness that he had pleased God well. 6. Moreover, without faith it is impossible to please [him] well, for he that approaches God must believe that he is and that he becomes the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him. 7. By faith Noah, after being given divine warning of things not yet beheld, showed godly fear and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; and through this [faith] he condemned the world, and he became an heir of the righteousness that is according to faith. 8. By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed in going out into a place he was destined to receive as an inheritance; and he went out, although not knowing where he was going. 9. By faith he resided as an alien in the land of the promise as in a foreign land, and dwelt in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the very same promise. 10. For he was awaiting the city having real foundations, the builder and maker which [city] is God. 11. By faith also Sarah herself received power to conceive seed, even when she was past the age limit, since she esteemed him faithful who had promised. 12. Hence also from one [man], and him as good as dead, there were born [children] just as the stars of heaven for multitude and as the sands that are by the seaside, innumerable. 13. In faith all these died, although they did not get the [fulfilment of the] promises, but they saw them afar off and welcomed them and publicly declared that they were strangers and temporary residents in the land. 14. For those who say such things give evidence that they are earnestly seeking a place of their own. 15. And yet, if they had indeed kept remembering that [place] from which they had gone forth, they would have had opportunity to return. 16. But now they are reaching out for a better [place], that is, one belonging to heaven. Hence God is not ashamed of them, to be called upon as their God, for he has made a city ready for them. 17. By faith Abraham, when he was tested, as good as offered up Isaac, and the man that had gladly received the promises attempted to offer up [his] only-begotten [son], 18 although it had been said to him: “What will be called ‘your seed’ will be through Isaac.” 19 But he reckoned that God was able to raise him up even from the dead; and from there he did receive him also in an illustrative way. 20 By faith also Isaac blessed Jacob and E´sau concerning things to come. 21 By faith Jacob, when about to die, blessed each of the sons of Joseph and worshiped leaning upon the top of his staff. 22 By faith Joseph, nearing his end, made mention of the exodus of the sons of Israel; and he gave a command concerning his bones. 23. By faith Moses was hid for three months by his parents after his birth, because they saw the young child was beautiful and they did not fear the order of the king. 24 By faith Moses, when grown up, refused to be called the son of the daughter of Phar´aoh, 25 choosing to be ill-treated with the people of God rather than to have the temporary enjoyment of sin, 26 because he esteemed the reproach of the Christ as riches greater than the treasures of Egypt; for he looked intently toward the payment of the reward. 27. By faith he left Egypt, but not fearing the anger of the king, for he continued steadfast as seeing the One who is invisible.28. By faith he had celebrated the Passover and the splashing of the blood, that the destroyer might not touch their firstborn ones. 29. By faith they passed through Red Sea as on dry land, but on venturing out upon it the Egyptians were swallowed up. 30 By faith the walls of Jer’i.cho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days. 31 By faith Ra’hab the harlot did not perish with those who acted disobediently, because she received the spies in a peaceable way. 32 And what more shall I say? For the time will fail me if I go on to relate about Gid´e·on, Ba´rak, Samson, Jeph´thah, David as well as Samuel and the [other] prophets, 33 who through faith defeated kingdoms in conflict, effected righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, 34 stayed the force of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from a weak state were made powerful, became valiant in war, routed the armies of foreigners. 35 Women received their dead by resurrection; but other [men] were tortured because they would not accept release by some ransom, in order that they might attain a better resurrection. 36 Yes, others received their trial by mockings and scourgings, indeed, more than that, by bonds and prisons. 37They were stoned, they were tried, they were sawn asunder, they died by slaughter with the sword, they went about in sheepskins, in goatskins, while they were in want, in tribulation, under ill-treatment; 38 and the world was not worthy of them. They wandered about in deserts and mountains and caves and dens of the earth. 39 And yet all these, although they had witness borne to them through their faith, did not get the [fulfilment of the] promise, 40 as God foresaw something better for us, in order that they might not be made perfect apart from us. 12:1 So, then, because we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also put off every weight and the sin that easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 as we look intently at the Chief Agent and Perfecter of our faith, Jesus. For the joy that was set before him he endured a torture stake, despising shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.  (All the above Scriptures are examples of exemplary faith, and the results they bore, showing that faith is of ultimate importance. If any person can endure and show such faith to the end, then unbelievable prospects are in store for him. Also, the Scriptures above state that those faithful ones did not then, and still have not, received their promised reward, as Jehovah God still has others, HOPEFULLY YOU AND I AND ALL OUR LOVED ONES,  that are still having to strengthen that faith, and endure to the end, and whom He also wants to inherit Paradise.)

Hebrews 13:6

So that we may be of good courage and say: “Jehovah is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” (It is amazing that it takes so much faith and belief as far as mankind is concerned to accept the truth in this Scripture. If we could but just be like small children when it was just a fact that “daddy would always save us and help us”! Jehovah God really has much greater power, LOVE and ability.)

James 1:5

So, if any one of YOU is lacking in wisdom, let him keep on asking God, for he gives generously to all and without reproaching; and it will be given him. (Jehovah God’s ways are wisdom, and if you keep asking in sincerity, Jehovah God will willingly accommodate you, beyond your expectations. Also, to have faith wisdom is not a requirement. A very young child often has complete faith in his father, although he does not yet have wisdom.)

James 1:6

But let him keep on asking in faith, not doubting at all, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven by the wind and blown about. (Doubt is one of the worst enemies of mankind. It easily destroys faith, especially when in the early stages of experiencing accurate Bible knowledge of Jehovah God’s Word and His intentions. Doubt is an inherent weakness of humankind, especially when a person observes what evil and bad their fellow humans are capable of doing, and also when faced with the easy and luring temptations of this world. Doubt is a powerful weapon of Satan the Devil.)

James 2:14

Of what benefit is it, my brothers, if a certain one says he has faith but he does not have works?  That faith cannot save him, can it?

James 2:17

Thus, too, faith, if it does not have works, is dead in itself.

James 2:22

You behold that [his] faith worked along with his works and by [his] works [his] faith was perfected,

James 2:26

Indeed, as the body without spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead. (Please do not let this Scripture confuse you. The spirit here referred to is the person’s will to perform. It is his actual person. The extremely lazy one has a lazy spirit, whereas the very active one that is always busy and doing or achieving goals, has a very active spirit. The body is a combination of brilliantly designed tools, but the spirit is the deciding force that guides or operates the “tools”. Hence, no deciding force equals one dead body.)

James 5:14 – 16

14 Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15. And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him. 16. Therefore openly confess YOUR sins to one another and pray for one another, that YOU may get healed. A righteous man’s supplication, when it is at work, has much force. (James 5:14 – 16 deals with faith healing, sickness, faith, forgiveness of sins, prayers and especially the extreme power of the prayers of the righteous one. It was previously accepted in the Bible that all those who performed faith healing did so on the strength of their own faith. Even Jesus did not expect a dead Lazarus to believe when he raised Lazarus up from the dead. Today, when false faith healing is applied with no results, then the sick or maimed person gets the blame, as their faith was supposedly not strong enough. Faith, the size of mustard grain, can move mountains, so maybe faith healing would be possible if the person with so much faith could be found.)

1 John 5:5

Who is the one that conquers the world but he who has faith that Jesus is the Son of God? (The world mentioned here is not the literal world, but humans that do not do Jehovah God’s will. It is humans that dislike, speak against, torture and kill people that try to serve Jehovah God. So to conquer those people would mean that even if they killed you, your resurrection would be a victory over them and their evil father, the Devil, and death.)

1 John 5:13

I write YOU these things that YOU may know that YOU have life everlasting, YOU who put YOUR faith in the name of the Son of God. (1 John 4:1 to 3, then 1 John 4:15 and now 1 John 5:13 all talking about the name of Jesus, and the faith in his name. Jehovah God does not waste words. Jesus is so loved by his Father, Jehovah God that Jehovah God allows the name of His Son to be of very great importance. Faith in Jesus means everlasting life.)

Revelation 14:12

Here is where it means endurance for the holy ones, those who observe the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” (Remember that Jesus also had to have FAITH as he was to experience death and had never seen a resurrection or anyone taken up to Heaven. He had to believe in and trust his Father, Jehovah God.)
