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! Is Having faith alone enough to be saved?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:

22 But 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.

20 But 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.

OK, Another example is Noah. When God Told Noah to Build the Ark . What If Noah Said YEAH LORD I HAVE FAITH YOU CAN MAKE US FLOAT ABOVE THE WATER WHEN THE FLOODS COME AND YOU SAVE US! AND WENT AND SAT UNDER AN OLD OAK TREE UNTIL THE FLOODS CAME?
WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED? HE AND HIS FAMILY AND ALL THE ANIMALS WOULD HAVE DROWNED! WHY? Because He Didn't Obey God at His WORD!
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
