Ye who own the faith of Jesus, sing the wonders that were done
when the love of God the Father over sin the victory won,
Author - Vincent Coles
Revelations 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
Keeping the commandments of God is the number one duty laid upon every Believer who ever walked this earth, Matthew 19:17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.
Keep the Commandments of God or Die!
Every soul who ever won the MANDATORY Faith of Jesus did it by one way and one way only, KEEPING THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD.
John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
To keep His commandments you must first know His commandments and there is no excuse in this world to not know them, as the single purpose for the coming of Jesus was to bring the word of God, which incorporates the word, the law, the commandments and the covenant.
I John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
DO YOU KNOW AND OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS?
Below are a mere four of God's commandments.
(1) When you first turned to God, did you repent? Did you over time and one by one go back and make right all you hurt, wronged or stole from? Its mandatory. Matthew 9:13, But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
(2) When you turned to God did you seek first the kingdom of God? Matthew 6:33, But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
When thou Prayest ... When you Pray
(3) As you can see above, Jesus did not come to call the righteous, for they are already holy, but he came for the unholy sinners every commandment He spoke was directed to the unholy sinner. Matthew 6:6, But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. This will come as a shocker to most: To all the unholy, by the word of God, you are not allowed to pray in the public. Breaking a commandment is sinning against God.
(4) As Jesus came as the word of God for only the unholy, there is no hope of an eternal life without the holy word of God or Bible. Missing the word of God is equal to missing the very purpose of the coming of Jesus. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:16). And we are sanctified or made holy by the word of God (John 17:17). To miss faith and sanctification alone will cost you your soul in hell.
Revelations 22:14 ... Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
