The Just Shall Live By His Faith



Note: As a believer living in this day and time, you need to know that only those who know

what faith is and how to use it will survive in the coming days. The Bible teaches us that faith is a servant and with proper use, it will cause you to overcome, get what you need, and fight a

good fight against your enemies. The darkness that failed last year will grow considerably worse into the next year, and only those who follow the lord very closely will walk through it

successfully.


Habakkuk 2:1-4

2 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will

say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.


2  And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.


3  For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.


4  Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.


Habakkuk is speaking a truth that is so important for the last-day church. Remember we have

been telling you that the cloud is moving, and the church is now crossing over. If you look at the Old Testament you will see when they crossed over the way they were led changed, and the cloud disappeared. They were no longer following a cloud they were following a person who got day-by-day instructions from the lord as to what to do. What does that mean for you? You must start hearing the lord for yourself and get his vision for your life. You cannot cross the finish line in the wrong lane or do things you should not be doing. The perfect will of God

becomes essential to your survival.


So, he tells you waiting on God is vitally important to hearing and finishing. You can’t do what

you want to do especially as you near the end of your race, that is the soul that is lifted up and

your faith will not work. You will only survive by faith.


Hebrews 10:22-39

22  Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled

from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.


(first, he tells you that you have been justified or made righteous by this sprinkling and walking by faith will keep our flesh clean or under control)


23  Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that

promised;)


(he tells you in this verse what you have received and must continue to receive, that’s what confession or profession is you must keep declaring it. That is all a part of the faith life, saying and doing what God said)


24  And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:(you can’t do this

by yourself, we need each other and in these days our coming together must increase)


25  Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting

one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.


26  For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there

remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,


27  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the

adversaries.


(he is telling us in this coming darkness Babylon will fall as our Father begin to

judge the earth of sin so don’t be foolish and begin to sin willfully)


28  He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:


29  Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?


(the blood of Jesus was far greater than the blood of animals)


30  For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.


(the lord's judgment toward his people firstly is toward them that have judged themselves thereby enabling him to judge the enemies in your life, if you have not the lords judgment in this hour is to separate from the pure)


31  It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.


32  But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;


(now he tells them to remember back when you got saved how much hell you went through because of it)


33  Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly,

whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.


34  For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods,

knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.


35  Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.


36  For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.


37  For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.


(Then he tells them that which needs to happen to you is not instant, you must endure and fight and not give up)


38  Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in

him.


39  But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the

saving of the soul.


(Then he ends with a powerful admonition, drawing back will only get you what Judas got the son of perdition. However, your only way forward is by faith, this is your only chance of surviving)


Paul tells us in this book that you will get many opportunities to draw back; this is why he

mentions this in conjunction with faith. As the days grow darker your faith as your servant will

keep you alive to finish the vision, that task which Holy Spirit will show you.


Romans 5:1-5

5 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:


2  By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.


(Notice he tells you everything that Christ made available to you at his death to win this fight and finish well you can only access by faith. You see it is called grace, but it is not automatic. It is the fight of faith through suffering that matures you)


3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh

patience;


4  And patience, experience; and experience, hope:


5  And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.


(you see it, this is how the fruit of the spirit grows through suffering, and as you obey your love grows and moves through your heart constantly purifying you)


So, to understand the faith fight we must look at the father of faith and the foundation he laid.


Romans 4:1-16

4 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?


(in other words, what did he discover about faith)


2  For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.


(so everything he did had nothing to do with the law it was long before it)


3  For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for

righteousness.


(So, your journey of becoming righteous began when you believed Jesus Christ was lord and you made him your lord, how did you believe through the foolish of preaching? And you maintain that righteousness by continuing to live by faith, this is the only way to please God according to Hebrews, righteousness is also a state of perpetual spiritual cleanliness)


4  Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.


(you can’t work for this you must simply believe what God said it is that simple)


5  But to him that worketh not, (meaning is not trying to earn it) but believeth on him that

justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.


6  Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth

righteousness without works,


(it was not possible under the law of Moses)


7  Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.


8  Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.


(when you say yes to Jesus God wipes your past clean I don’t care what you have done, you now have only a future that you can keep getting forgiveness for because you will need it God knows you must learn to walk in righteousness)


9  Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also?

for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.


10  How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in

circumcision, but in uncircumcision.


11  And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he

had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though

they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also


(there is no more need for seals thank God)


12  And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also

walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised.


(so, it was Abraham who brought together both the circumcised and the uncircumcised, those

under the old and us under the new who were not circumcised to show our faith)


13  For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his

seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.


(or simply believing what God said)


14  For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none

effect:


15  Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.


(because under the law there was very little time to repent and, in many cases, it didn’t matter,

punishment came)


16  Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,


(so god took the best thing possible to make sure all of mankind had a chance of missing hell and that was faith)


We certainly can’t end without looking at what we call the Hall of Faith and see what they

accomplished without having received the promise, which means the spirit in the new birth.

Many of them will put New Testament believers to shame and it should not be that way. He

mentions no New Testament believers.


Hebrews 11

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.


2  For by it the elders obtained a good report.


3  Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that

things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.


4  By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained

witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet

speaketh.


5  By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.


6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that

he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.


7  By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an

ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the

righteousness which is by faith.


8  By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive

for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.


9  By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles

with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:


10  For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.


11  Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a

child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.


12  Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many as the stars of the

sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea shore innumerable.


13  These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.


14  For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.


15  And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might

have had opportunity to have returned.


16  But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.


17  By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the

promises offered up his only begotten son,


18  Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:


19  Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he

received him in a figure.


20  By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.


21  By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped,

leaning upon the top of his staff.


22  By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.


23  By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw

he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.


24  By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's

daughter;


25  Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of

sin for a season;


26  Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had

respect unto the recompence of the reward.


27  By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him

who is invisible.


28  Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the

firstborn should touch them.


29  By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.


30  By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.


31  By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received

the spies with peace.


32  And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:


33  Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.


34  Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.


35  Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting

deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:


36  And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and

imprisonment:


37  They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;


38  (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in

dens and caves of the earth.


39  And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:


40  God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made

perfect.
