Faith is a gift and the works of God are the byproduct of the measure of faith God’s given. Only God can be God. Faith will move a mountain of sin in ones life, but if you’re looking for the deeper meaning of faith understand this. A pure heart sees God and a pure heart has to be purified. How?
Ac. 15:8-9 Mt. 5:8 1 Co. 13:12-13

Without the Holy Spirit you’re wasting your time in your search. The deeper truth is that faith is the foundation and all else is a byproduct. It all starts and ends with a trust, a belief, a relationship with Almighty God. If you don't believe this is possible then again your wasting your effort in seeking this truth.

Faith is the substance it always comes first before hope and it is a gift of God that will produce Gods miracle work. Men’s hearts will fail them for the lack of faith. Lu. 21:26 but to be strong in the Lord waiting on His direction purified by the gift of faith that He’s given. If God be for us, who could be against us. Who? Name it, or whom. You can’t you have more faith than you know.

The Creator can raise the dead and that’s Abrahamic faith, a gift of God. Grace and truth came by Gods Word Jesus Christ the anointed Word of God made flesh. God is spirit and his blood is grace Gods truth when spoken out by a person born of Gods seed produces faith. It is Gods seed producing God himself. Gods Word is powerful because it is eternal holding everything together the seen (natural) and the unseen (spiritual).

Faith is a product of the eternal word that makes alive the heart of the inner most part of the human and starts a process of preparing a ground that will produce spiritual fruit. The work of The Holy Spirit is in preparing a place for God to live Immanuel it truly is a miracle of God. Mans free will can reject this miracle and his heart will become a desert with no life, darkened in spiritual things a complete dead zone.

A measure of faith is given to all, however to be quickened to Gods truth is a gift and it’s by grace that makes a place where faith can grow. Grace comes only from Gods Word. A word fitly spoken is the truth of God entering the ears and resonating in the heart of the believing, like apples of gold in pictures of silver. People have it wrong when they say out loud I hope this will happen and that is not faith.

If God wills it saying; comes a little closer to faith but the level of faith for the faith your wanting to know about is only achieved when one with the Father. Jesus never went forward without hearing for Father first. Faith on this level is one with God hearing and acting out like Jesus did. Greater works will you do than I do for I go to the Father Jesus told his chosen.
We have a mediator between Father, Jesus who when He speaks gives miracle working faith born where peace reigns and that’s in the heart of the believer. Trusting is being confident of what we hope for, convinced about things we do not see. It was for this that Scripture attested the merit of the people of old. By trusting, we understand that the universe was created through the spoken word of God, so that what was seen did not come into being out of existing phenomena.

Faith is created out of nothing by God. Faith is the day star rising in the heart for those who believe more than a measure given for that measure is Christ who can not be measured. Words spoken out of mans mouth move Gods Spirit, principalities, and power to glorify Jesus. God commanded the prophet to speak to the dry bones. Why?

Words are spirit and when spoken in direct relationship with our God makes things happen. Why does God need man for this? He doesn't, but God’s joy and delight is in his highest creation man. Man is wonderfully and terrible made and God loves his creation man. Always remember the devil counterfeits everything of God. Blessings Steven

Can One say they have Faith and Not Obey the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ?
For Example :You can Take a drunk man In a Bar and he says YEAH I BELIEVE in JESUS! Will he make it? Let us read what scripture has to say?

2 Thessalonians 1:7-9 (King James Version)

7And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,

8In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
So after Jesus Christ resurrected THE GRACE OF GOD APPEARED UNTO ALL MEN AND THE GOSPEL WAS PREACHED BY HIS Apostles. How Can I say His apostles have the truth?John 17:17-20 (King James Version)

17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

20Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
WHO'S WORD? THE APOSTLES. We are to believe on Jesus Christ through THEIR WORD! God Gave them the TRUTH!

So What Did they Preach to Be Saved for all man kind? Acts 2:37-40 (King James Version)

37Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the LORD our God shall call.

40And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

Romans 6:14-16 (King James Version)

14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

1 Corinthians 6:8-10 (King James Version)

8Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

9Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

The person By walking in God's Grace Must Decide if He's Going to Walk in God's Word or Do NOTHING!
Acts 5:32 (King James Version)

32And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him

As we Read It's Also important To Obey the Gospel.
Here's another example in Romans 2:7-9 (King James Version)

7To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

8But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath,

9Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;

God Has Granted Grace to Us So we can have space to repent and Believe The Gospel before we die! Not To Continue in Sin And Say Yeah I Believe You Lord Your Grace will save me and Do Nothing!

Guess What? In James 1:22 (King James Version)says:

22But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
James 2:19-21 (King James Version)

19Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

20But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

21Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

He Had Faith What God HAD Said and By His Works HE SHOWED HE BELIEVED GOD!
What If Abraham Said YEAH LORD I BELIEVE AND Went on a picnic with His Son and forgot about What God Asked Him to Do? He would have been disobedient.

Also when he built the ark by FAITH God TOLD HIM TO MAKE IT OUT OF GOFER WOOD! If Noah built it out of some other wood It Would have probably Would have Sunk! SO IT"S VERY IMPORTANT TO DO IT THE WAY GOD SAYS TO DO IT!
God Sent These Men (The Apostles) (John 17:17-20)He GAVE THEM TRUTH AND PRAYED THAT WE WOULD BELIEVE ON HIM THROUGH THEIR WORD! WHO"S Word? The Apostles. Read it for your self. He Gave Peter The Keys!
So What Did He Preach to be saved? Acts 2:38 (King James Version)

38Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Notice those who gladly received the Word of God Was Baptized. (Acts 2:41 same chapter)They Had Faith and obedience by the Grace Of God! Some People say Baptism is not necessary!
If The Rest of The Apostles Didn't agree with this message Don't you think one of them would have stood up and Corrected Him?
I had someone say to me Well Whose Words are you going to believe? Jesus(God) Or MANS THE APOSTLES?
I replied I am going To Believe THE WHOLE WORD OF God! Both! What we Have Here Is Man contradicting Scripture! If YOU DON"T BELIEVE THE Apostle's Word THAN YOU MIGHT AS WELL THROW AWAY MOST OF THE ENTIRE NEW TESTAMENT! why even bother reading it if you don't believe it!

God's Word Is in Agreement through out the Whole Bible! It ALWAYS flows in Perfect Harmony! It Never Changes!
My Prayer Is : 2 Timothy 2:25-26 (King James Version)

25In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

26And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

So my question to you is? If you Heard This message of Acts 2:38 Just Now, What will keep you from obeying the Truth? Or Will you say YEAH LORD I BELIEVE! AND do nothing toward Obedience to His Word? Ignore This Scripture (Acts 2:38,) Jesus Even said you Cannot enter in the Kingdom of God if you are not Born-Again in (John 3:3-5)and YET SOME believe God can go outside of His word And Save you?
The Lord Bless You All IN JESUS NAME! And Thank you for taking the time to Read This, If you Have any Questions Please feel free to drop me a line on my Page. LOVE IN CHRIST,Della Morton
