Question? What is Faith?
Faith is a belief and a complete trust in something or someone to be true.
Many people put their trust (faith) in many different things that MIGHT NOT be neccessarily true.
The honest truth is, that most people’s faith (trust) is MOSTLY MISGUIDED and placed in or on the WRONG THING.
Depending on in what or who a person’s trust (faith) is in WILL MAKE the difference between of going to heaven or hell as far as eternity is concerned.
Romans 10:17 states…
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
The ONLY WAY a person can have the FULL ASSURANCE of going to heaven is by BELIEVING (placing complete trust / faith in) that Jesus Christ died and shed his blood on the cross was buried and three days later resurrected from the dead as the complete payment for their sins.
1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; (2) By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. (3) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; (4) And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.
Jesus DECLARED in John 14:6…
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as our personal saviour will we be allowed entrance into heaven, Jesus said that HE IS THE ONLY WAY.
John 3:16 states…
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
That Facts are…
1. God loves YOU (the world).
2. Jesus Christ died for YOU (He gave his Son).
3. If YOU believe (personally) Christ paid for all
your sins on the cross (whosoever believeth).
4. God gives YOU two guarantees- (1) will never
go to hell (shall not perish) (2) but have everlasting life.
What is Faith?
Faith is putting your TRUST ALONE IN Jesus Christ as your PERSONAL SAVIOUR.
If a person’s trust or faith is in ANYTHING ELSE even a little bit HELL will be their ETERNAL DESTINY the very moment that they take their last breath (die).
the best advice I can give is… TRUST CHRIST as saviour and have the assurance eternal life and going to heaven when you die.
Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
