Will we run the beautiful fight of faith, as the Bible describes in 1 Timothy 6:12:
Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.’
I know that in our life of faith, there are many things we should pass through this narrow path, and what gets stuck on it should be considered our loss, as Philippians 3:7 also tells us.
‘But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.’
However, I am now writing about one specific thing in which I believe and know that the chosen people of Israel are God’s people, just as I believe and know it from Genesis 12:3:
’And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.’
There are situations in a person’s life when they must choose between the narrow path and the wide path. This convincing verse helps me understand how to decide, and it’s in Matthew 7:13-14:
’13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.’
Unfortunately, most of the media condemns Israel, but if I bring Jeremiah 12:5, which says:
‘If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?’
How true is this Scripture still applicable today.
Should I choose the wide path that doesn’t offend this worldly man, but rather me. You see, for me, the verses from Hebrews 11:24-25 come to mind:
’24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;
25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;’
You can also choose today, God gave you this choice as a privilege just like our Heavenly Father.
Although where I live, the Israeli war is far away, so I can write anything from the comfort of my armchair because it comes with minimal consequences. But the one who examines the hearts, our Heavenly Father, sees that my words are appropriate and come from the heart or out of sincerity. I believe they come from the heart, and if there are any inaccuracies or shortcomings, my Heavenly Father will make up for them through His mighty grace in the name of Jesus Christ.
I am sorry for what happened to the people of Israel in the past, and what is happening to them today, they did not initiate this current war, nor did they provoke it for themselves. Let me bring more Scriptures to see what human nature is like.
4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
6 And the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee [shall be] his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.’
Today, it’s no different; people are envious of others. In today’s message, it’s about Israel, and they will do everything to crush and kill them. But our Heavenly Father does not allow this, even if Israel’s people have to go through many trials. But let’s see what the Bible says about the outcome. I believe our Heavenly Father has called us to this, just as He called His people Israel.
‘Matthew 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.’
Let me share 3 Scriptures that help us better understand the importance of receiving Jesus and its inevitability.
Romans 10:8 – 10
8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
If you’re reading this today and you want to be with our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in eternity, know that this verse shows you how to do it. 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. In the following sections, I will guide you through how to confess all of this before our Father and our Lord Jesus.
John 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
John 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. These are the words of Jesus.
You can be born again as the Bible teaches: you need to confess
your faith. After you have been born again, say this short but very important prayer
with your loved ones, relatives, friends, and all those who believe in Jesus Christ. Because to be born again, we must confess our faith. This is what the next section is about.
I believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
I believe that Jesus died for my sins,
according to the teachings of the Bible.
I believe that Jesus rose from the dead,
for my justification.
Please, Jesus, be my Lord!
Please, Jesus, be my Savior!
Please, Jesus, be my Healer!
Jesus, You are my Lord.
Jesus, You are my Savior.
Jesus, You are my Healer.
I am redeemed. I am born again in Christ.
His holy blood has cleansed me from all sins.
This is the truth, for the Word of God is truth.
Thank you, dear Jesus. Amen.
For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
2 Timothy 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
My service is not tied to a place, not located under a country or street name, and not hidden behind a phone number. I serve my Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ, growing in Him day by day, being transformed from my old self to become like Christ.
