Subject: Faith with works >
GOD commanded to be written that faith must have works : Jam 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? Jam 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Jam 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Jam 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Jam 2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Jam 2:22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? Jam 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Jam 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. Phl 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. GOD i glorify your WORDs of TRUTH that i must absolutely persevere up to my last breath for my salvation. almario

I can now understand the meaning of FAITH and WORKS differently from what I used to know. Before, I thought faith refers to what I had in mind and sincerely believed in it; while works pertain to anything good I did helping my fellowmen, be they financial, material-physical, or emotional boost up. Now I realized that FAITH is a gift of God and I only received it when I truly humbled myself before Him. With faith goes divine knowledge. But knowing the truth is not enough. This has to be put into action that God would “benefit” from it. Even then, “works” come from the strength provided by God based on the humility He sees in us. It is like, without faith there can be no acceptable works to God, and works is the evidence of having faith. All these, faith and works, come from God as He sees our submissiveness to Him as shown by our Lord Jesus in His role as Son. God creates circumstances in our life for all these to be realized. Since God is after the salvation of souls, “works” is where He realizes His plan “benefiting Him” as well as the chosen. I hope this is God’s revelation, and I am open to correction if there is anything contradicting the truth.
