Faith and Obedience

2024-02-06 05:38

The journey of Israelites to Canaan in the time of Moses is working as copy and shadow for us who are making the journey to the spiritual Canaan that is heaven. Through the people who could not enter Canaan, God is teaching us a lesson so that we can learn what to do to enter heaven.

Paul explains about the reason why they could not enter the Promised Land Canaan.

Hebrews 3:18 And to whom did God swear that they would never enter his rest if not to those who disobeyed? 19 So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief.

Paul says people could not enter Canaan because of their disobedience. And the cause of the disobedience was their unbelief. This means they did not obey God because they did not believe in God. If they truly believed that God exists and God is the Almighty, they would have completely obeyed God. When they needed water, they would have waited or asked God believing that God would provide whatever they needed. However, instead of asking God, they started grumbling and complaining.

All throughout the journey they complained and grumbled when something unfavorable happened to them. They complained for the lack of water and food. They grumbled when they faced difficulties such as war or conflict. If they truly had faith in God, they would have completely obeyed the commands of God, believing that God would help them and take care of them. They could not obey God because they did not completely believe in God.

1 Corinthians 10:11 These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the culmination of the ages has come.

The bible says all these things are recorded as examples and warnings for us. Then what is the lesson we should learn from them? It is the belief in God and the obedience to God. Those who believe in God must show their faith through obedience. Think of Joshua and Caleb the only two out of 6 million Israel people who came out of Egypt. Only the two of them could enter Canaan. It is because they completely believed in God and His Almightiness. And they obeyed God without complaining or grumbling.

We should have the same faith as them. We might have to face many situations and circumstances that makes us tremble and fear. However, we must overcome them think about God. God is with us and God helps us. We have nothing to be afraid of. As 144,000 we should follow the Lamb wherever he goes.

    There is no fear for those who are with God. I will strongly and boldly accomplish the completion of the gospel and reveal the glory of Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother.

    Obedience is very close to our faith.
    If you truely believe God.
    You must obey God's commandments without any doubt.
    When you look back history of Israel, we clearly understand they obeyed God's commandments correctly they received a lots of God blessings but they didn't obey God's words they were suffering all kinds of difficulties.
    According to this events we will get to know God always give us blessings when we obeyed God's word 100% without any doubt.
    So we need to follow God's commandments correctly.

    The God allowed many commandments for our salvation.
    But, if we don't believe God, we can't keep God's commandments.
    This is why we should believe the God as the Savior who save us.
    In this age, Christ AhnSahngHong allowed God's laws to save us.
    If we want to get the salvation, we have to keep these laws of God.

    ‘The extent of my faith’ can be determined by how much I obey the word of God.
    It is natural that the longer the period of faith in the truth, the greater the depth of obedience and faith, but you must know that if you do as you please, like King Saul, all the grace you have been given will be taken away.
    Christ Ahnsahnghong and Mother God, who came as saviors in the age of the Holy Spirit, looked forward from the beginning to the end of the world and carried out the work of salvation for mankind, so the members of the Church of God believe in their words and, like Abraham and Gideon, absolutely do whatever they are in. Have obedient faith.

    As in Old Testament history, those who do not obey cannot enter the land of Canaan, that is, heaven.
    Also, King Zedekiah, who was obedient at first but later changed to disobedience, and King Saul, who was half obedient and half disobedient. Those who are not disobedient from beginning to end but obediently follow the Lamb until the end, wherever he leads, will be saved.
    Christ Ahnsahnghong, who came as the Lamb, confirmed through the Bible that those who obey God's word will go to heaven, and left behind the words of instruction to mankind: 'If you follow God the Mother's teachings, many unexpected good things will happen to you.'
