If religion had anything to do with the faith that comes from God, this world would be a bed of roses.
The faith that comes from God is biblical.
It is life.
It is an individual revelation from the Spirit of God to those who have a humble spirit.
It is a living sign of the presence of the Almighty God in the innermost being of those who are humble.
It is the power of the Spirit in him.
Faith is a channel of communication between the Spirit of God and the spirit of man.
This is why he sees the invisible and believes the impossible.
He overcomes doubts, fears, traumas and complexes.
He contemplates and awaits the endless eternal riches in the near future.
By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward. Hebrews 11.24-26
The same way celestial bodies are sustained by the Word of the Creator, the wonderful power of faith in God is sustained by His Word.
Who has ever fallen before their enemies while putting their faith into practice?
By faith the harlot Rahab did not perish with those who did not believe, when she had received the spies with peace.
And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets: who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, became valiant in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Hebrews 11.31-34
Those who think the same thoughts as the Eternal live in faith and by faith for all of eternity.
The Lord Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of faith, said:
I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. John 17.14
The World Cup is for those who are of the world. Not for those who have died to the World!
