Belief vs. Obedience

The ungodly often think that all that God requires of them is to “believe” in Him. However, God does not require just belief (the demons believe and tremble); He demands obedience. We are to bow to the Lordship of the One who gave us life. He is the Lord and if the world refuses to bow to His absolute sovereignty now in mercy, they will bow later in judgment.

“Salvation comes not by ‘accepting the finished work’ or ‘deciding for Christ.’ It comes by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, the whole, living, victorious Lord who, as God and man, fought our fight and won it, ac- cepted our debt as His own and paid it, took our sins and died under them and rose again to set us free. This is the true Christ, and nothing less will do.

“But something less is among us, nevertheless, and we do well to identify it so that we may repudiate it. That something is a poetic fiction, a product of the romantic imagination and maudlin religious fancy. It is a Jesus, gentle, dreamy, shy, sweet and feminine, almost effeminate, and marvelously adaptable to whatever society He may find Himself in . . . He is used as a means to almost any carnal end, but he is never acknowledged as Lord. These quasi Christians follow a quasi Christ. They want his help but not his interference. They will flatter him but never obey him.” A. W. Tozer

Zephaniah 3:2 She has not obeyed His voice,

She has not received correction;

She has not trusted in the Lord,

She has not drawn near to her God.

    I like this …it has a ring of truth to it. Almost. You acknowledge Jesus as God and Man…however, this was not something that can be accurately verified in the 1st Testament. The GOD of Israel states plainly that HE is not a man…meaning there is no part of HIM that is human. If Jesus claimed to be the GOD of Israel, well, I’m sure you can see the issue with that. Jesus clearly stated over 90 times that he is the “son of man” which in original greek is literally “son of a man”. As a matter of fact, Jesus cannot be the son of David and the son of God…at least not in the literal sense for a woman can only carry the seed of one at a time..basic biology. The GOD of Israel made a covenant with David, HE swore that the messiah will come through his loins. HE never swore that HE would reproduce HIMSELF. Much worse, reproduce HIMSELF to be slain for those who rebel against HIM. However, supposing Jesus took the blame for your sins, The GOD of Israel is “Just” and would never allow for an innocent person to be slain for the sake of the wicked for this is surely a perversion of justice. Shall not the JUDGE of all the earth do right?
    HE shall not be mocked, every man will pay for his own deeds. legally.
    But I like the idea that you encourage people to do what is right according to HIS laws. This is a good thing 🙂
