“God is not a man”
During a recent discussion, it was agreed that God had no faith.
This was, by no means, an agreement by all at the BEGINNING of the discussion. However, by the END of the conversation, everyone generally agreed that God has no faith.
At least if one believes the Word of God.
FIRST, God is not a man.
“God is not a man”
Since God is NOT a man, God has no use for faith whatsoever.
FAITH is the evidence of things not (yet) seen.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
There are a number of ideas which believers have a hard time wrapping their heads around (understanding)–let alone unbelievers, to whom God’s Word is foolishness.
“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
One of these notions has to do with the fact that GOD ALWAYS EXISTED. He had no beginning; he has no end.
Another one has to do with God existing EVERYWHERE AT ONCE. He inhabits every point of what man calls “time“: past, present and future. This is how God is able to know what happens CENTURIES before man sees the event taking place.
“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure”
BECAUSE God inhabits every point in time–past, present and future–God knows what is to happen at every point in time–which He created.
BECAUSE God sees what is to happen, he has NO NEED of faith, which is the evidence of things not seen.
BECAUSE God sees ALL, he needs no evidence of things not seen because there is NOTHING He does not see.
God has ALREADY seen the future. God ALREADY knows what is to happen.
LASTLY, unlike man, God has absolutely NO need of faith.
Man is NOT God.
Man does NOT inhabit all points of time: past, present and future.
Man CANNOT see what is to happen.
Man does NOT see ALL.
Therefore, man NEEDS faith.
PARTICULARLY to navigate the very choppy waters of the end times.
SO, to the reader: Get faith!
How does one go about getting faith where none or little exists?
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
MORE: God is NEVER Surprised
HAS the reader ever thought about what the idea of existing at every point in time simultaneously means?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
