Faith which is not accompanied by action is dead

2021-05-04 14:15
Jas 2:14-20 "What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? ... In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. ... You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?"

Today, some people only emphasize faith but not the others, especially action with the words "We can receive salvation by faith". But we can know, with aforementioned verse, that we need action with the faith.

Let's think about examples of out forefathers of faith.

Heb 11:17 "By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had received the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son."

Heb 11:7 "By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith."

Forefathers of faith took action, offering his son or building the ark. And the Bible calls the action faith. Without faith they cannot do it and without action, it can not be called faith. Does the Bible says that they just firmly believe doing nothing? Forefathers of faith, like Abraham, Noah and Moses, are examples of the saints who are walking the path of faith. Just as they took action, we should take action. What should we do?

Rev 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.

God who appears as the Spirit and the bride are calling us to come and receive water of life, that is eternal life. Then, we should do. World Mission Society Church of God is Zion, God's dwelling place. If we go to Zion we can meet God and receive abundant blessings from God the Father and God the Mother. Come to Zion, Church of God!

    I'm so blessed to realize or accept Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother who came as the Spirit and the Bride to give eternal life to us. So, Let's preach Father and Mother!!

    we must act as faith like the forefathers of faith. this is because we can exhibit faith thru action.

  • 2021-05-05 12:49

    Of course, we should have faith to get salvation. But, faith alone is not enough. We also obey what God commanded us including the Sabbath day and the Passover of the new covenant.

  • 2021-05-05 13:40

    Jesus said that he who does the will of God can enter the kingdom of heaven,(Mt 7:21)
    so, we must practice the will of God.

    The reason why the bible teaches us that faith without action is dead is because every teaching of God is all for our salvation. Therefore, we must practice every teaching of God Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother who are our true Saviors in this last age.

  • 2021-05-05 13:41

    The Spirit and the Bride who is the savior of the age of the Holy Spirit, are calling us to give us the water of life- salvation. I give thanks to Elohim God.

    Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead... I like this verse. We must keep God's commandment If we have Faith in God.

  • 2021-05-05 13:43

    Those who have a faith must do the action. Because we can't see our faith. So when we obey God's words, we can do the action correctly. Let's keep the truth of life such as Sabbath and Passover of the New Covenant with firm faith.

  • 2021-05-05 13:44

    Of course, faith is important.
    But faith without action isn't true faith.
    Action for God's teachings is true faith forward to heaven.

  • 2021-05-05 15:29

    Amen! Let’s receive eternal salvation in WMSCOG where God the Father and God the Mother dwells. And have firm faith in God with action.

  • 2021-05-06 10:57

    Faith which is not accompanied by action is dead. And the man who says, 'I know him,' but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him. We must keep the God' commands.

  • 2021-05-06 11:43

    Amen! The true faith in God Elohim is to practice Gods laws and commands into practice and preach the good news of the New Covenant.

  • 2021-05-06 13:04

    To believe in God is to do what Jesus set an example. Anyone can say I follow and love God but can't take an action.

  • 2021-05-06 13:48

    As written in the Bible, if we are true followers of Christ, wishing to receive salvation, we must keep His commands and follow God with our deeds.

  • 2021-05-06 13:52

    We have to follow God's words who said come. Just as God said, Let us go to The Holy Spirit and The Bride who are our Heavenly parents and receive salvation.

    Believing in words alone is not a complete faith. Of course, matching words and actions is not easy. Worship is the most basic thing in faith to express faith in action. If you say you truly believe in God, you must worship God's commandments that God has commanded. If you want to receive the blessing of salvation and the forgiveness of sins, you must worship. In order to have something to do with God, we must also worship.The worship day God has set for us is not Sunday, but Saturday.By worshiping the Sabbath on Saturday in faith, our faith becomes stronger and more blessed
