What does it mean that the righteous shall live by faith?
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Hebrews and explains that we often hear this phrase and immediately think it’s about the doctrine of justification… because Paul uses that expression to teach that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
But there is another part to it: Not only are we justified by faith, but we live and hope by faith as well.
In the darkest of days, the believer should live by faith, meaning that the people of God continue to trust in Him and cling to His promises even when distress and disaster have come to them.
Knowing not only that God is faithful and will not let their soul come to destruction, but also that Christ is coming to bring an end to all calamity in a final judgment that is so complete, it will right every wrong.
Description: It’s easy to become fascinated by the topic of End Times. The challenge is that many respected theologians disagree about this section of the Book of Revelation. Today we will present one view and seek to support it from other Scriptures. And while this view may not agree with yours, if the result of listening to this message leads you to further study, then the time is well spent. The caution, however, is that good is often the enemy of best. …And the in-depth study of Christology is always the best.
Description: Zophar is the third friend to speak. His speech ends cycle one in the dialogue portion and in the end he adds nothing new to the views of Job’s other two friends. Zophar is insulting in his attack as he basically calls Job a windbag and a scoffer.
Job continues to declare his innocence and calls for a trial before God. In the end he continues to trust in God and says, “though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.”
