Paul said let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus Christ is the supreme pattern for Christian living you copy others and you copy their faults you copy Christ and there's no fall to copy not only does he set before us the perfect structures of his own flawless career but he finishes every one of us who desires it a blueprint for our own life but to build after his model you must have his mind and what kind of a mind does he have he has a mind devoted to God and the goose he has a mind of high aspirations and humble service he has a mine of faith and faithfulness of faith and work we have to witness not only by lip but we must witness by life we must not only have a Christian vocabulary when we must have Christian experience you know some people think that the Christian religion is just something that you talk about and they think that they can talk their religion but if you let everybody talk in the next in the next five minutes there would be a lot of weeping and crying I'm a Christian you may not know it but I'm a Christian let me tell you tile if you're a Christian somebody else's don't know it by their fruits ye shall know them we must have faith and we must have works not only must we have a Christian vocabulary but Christian experience we not only must say what's right but we must do what's right we need a program yes but we also need a ministry and I'm him we need faith and we need works you see faith without works is dead and what's without faith is futile you see faith and works are the wings of the same bird the bird can't fly with just one wing he doesn't making a difference how strong and how limber the wing of faith is that bird can fly with faith alone and it doesn't matter how strong and how limber the wing of works is that bird can fly with works alone if he's to fly he must mount up on faith and works the Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he's anointed me to preach the gospel put it to the pool he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted to preach deliverance to the captives recovering the sight of the blind and said it liberty them that are bruised to preach the acceptable year of the law now the Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he's an ordered me to preach the gospel to the poor now that's something that you say he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted that's something that you'd do to preach deliverance to the captives that's something that you say recovering the sight of the blind that's something that you'd do to set it liberty them that are bruised that's something that you'd do to preach the acceptable year of the Lord that's something that you say so saying and doing we've got to go hand in hand faith and worse now faith is essential because faith sees the invisible it believes the incredible and receives the impossible faith is essential because it's your only approach to God he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he's a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him faith is your invitation to let God use you on his own terms now just just for a moment think what would happen right here tonight if everybody here would just allow the Lord to have his way in your life why revival would break out right here you know we all try pray Lord send us a revival we need Reviver Lord and he said if my people which are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways you won't have to worry I'll hear from heaven I'll forgive their sins and I'll heal their land so the next move is I brought ready are you ready men want to be saved but they want to be saved on their own terms if you'll allow God to use you on his own terms you'll not only see what God can do for you but you'll see what he can do with you and through you faith is the link that binds our nothingness to all mightiness faith is human weakness lay and hold on divine strength now if a thing is possible it can be done by skill and experience but if a thing is impossible it can be done only by faith now faith is not gonna stop the storm but I tell you what it'll do it'll help you to stand it this whole world is better than home and faith will take the tangled threads of men's hopes and knit them and the tapestries of fadeless global faith will help you to face life's music when you don't even like the to the vich of faith give reality to our hopes it'll cause you to live on in visible means of support you can eat well in the wilderness and sing the doxology in a dungeon faith is essential but faith is not enough by itself that's just a starting point our Lord gave a demonstration of faith and works it was on the occasion of the Feast of the Tabernacles a blind man was sitting by the wayside big now the other men became blind but this man was born like that this man had never seen the face of his loved ones he'd never seen sunrise or sunset this man had never seen color blush in a road this man had felt raindrops but he'd never seen clouds floating overhead this man had heard thunder but he'd never seen lightning flash this man is in a pitiful condition sitting there blind begging but the disciples were interested only to a point they were only interested in the cause they were not interested in a cure they just wanted to have something to talk about they just wanted to have it said when they got in their rap session that we know what called this blood they were only only interested in theology and they call themselves asking a deep theological question master who did sin this man or his parents that he was born blind but Jesus turned their theology into doxology for he said neither but that the works of God might be made manifest in here that Jesus is not saying that the man has never sinned or that the parents had not sinned because all have sinned and come short of the glory of God but what Jesus is saying that no one sin calls this blood I can hear Jesus and I had him born like that for just such time as there I had him born like that so that when minhwan low on faith I had him born like that so that when men think that faith is all they need I had him born like that that I might glorify God and he set out to give this demonstration and he's gonna do it in slow motion now Jesus could have just willed and the man's eyes would have come over but it takes this time he's going to demonstrate the importance of faith hand works he takes his time he spit on the ground he mixes the spits and the clay and then he takes this time and smooths it on the man's eyes and tells him to go and wash in the food this man first of all had to have faith in Jesus if it had no faith this blind man would have resented he would have protested he would have said why this man is mocking me I'm I've been blind all my life and here he is putting murder and spit on my but there was something in Jesus's horse that caused the man to want to try and he started out just like e without said faith is a spotting point that the good start in something that's the only starting point this man got up and went straight to the pool now he possibly didn't have a seeing-eye dog he possibly didn't have know anything about radar but he went straight to the food guide me o thou great Jehovah pilgrim through this barren land I'm weak but thou mighty hold me with I powerful head you know if you will go in the faith that the Lord gives you if you will use that little nearly increase it while you're in the journey and then when you come to the end of the journey you can testify that the journey has been joyful you know when you get in your car and start out for home tonight you may not have enough light to shine all the way home but as your vehicle moves the light moves when you turn right the light turns right when you turn left the light turns left when you walk the hill the lights up the hill when you get in the valley the lights in the Velan after while you've got light all the way home use the faith that the Lord gives and he will increase it yes he will yield he'll strengthen yes as you obey this man went on to the pool and when he got there he didn't just stand and shout about it pain this man had to work this man walked and when he walked when he worked when he coupled his faith and his work his eyes came over and now he's got something to shout about now he can tell other what good thing the Lord has done for I once was blind but now I see oh I used to murmur and complain and argue with life but when I found Jesus precious to my soul I moved off of complaint Avenue and am now living on Thanksgiving Bulevar praise the Lord

God help me Jesus Christ I'm Christian and I need your help you're the only one can see what I'm going through right now I cry I dont.want to be left behind I need your help Lord and I know you can help me Jesus Christ cuz you die for my sin help me that's why I asked you to help me those things that we make mistakes and Christian who please Lord help me that's all I ask for help I pray the name of the father son of the Holy Spirit to please forgive me😭😭😭😭😭

The people here in the comments saying faith + nothing = salvation are wrong and doing harm to others by preaching false things.
HumanBody+nothing=dead body
HumanBody+soul = living Human
Faith + nothing = Dead faith.
Faith+Works = perfect living faith
Perfect living faith = salvation
James 2
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Believing only is not enough. James 2
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
James 4
17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

Israelites out there it’s high time you wake up! TMH said that you are the only family that he knows out of all the families on earth.. you are a special people and even his first born.. Israelites, don’t wait for some guy to tell you what the Bible says. It’s your book of the law. “The wicked have opened the book of the law and changed the face of the judges there in.” The curses are a sign forever put on you to reveal who you are and Wake up negro man! APTTMH living God of Israel!

god said be still and knowing that I am your God God says have faith in me and don't be afraid I am with you

Being a Christian to me is believing the absurd and doing the impossible. Only a precious fraction of Christians will inherit His Kingdom. This is both pessimistic and optimistic. Thank you for this oldtime radio sermon.

If we had works that are obedient to the law and we are sinless in the eyes of GOD then why did he send JESUS CHRIST ? "SALVATION IS A GIFT GIVING THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST" We can not earn salvation there is nothing we can possibly do to achieve it. "JESUS CHRIST" IS THE ONE WHO EARNED SALVATION THROUGH A PERFECT "WORKS" "AND ONLY HE HAS KEPT A PERFECT LAW!!!" We Are Sinners Who Could Never be obedient to the works of the law. That is why GOD SENT HIS SON JESUS CHRIST TO FULFILL THE LAW. And because JESUS CHRIST IS THE PERFECTION OF OBEDIENCE TO THE FATHER THAT IS WHY SALVATION IS ONLY FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN "JESUS CHRIST" OUR WORKS ARE DEAD "NOT ONE DOES GOOD NO NOT ONE" ALL HAVE FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. The message of "SALVATION IS FAITH" it does not say your works are your SALVATION. Those who believe a person's good works is what will save them they are slapping GOD in the face telling him we don't need CHRIST we can save ourselves. "IT IS THE WORKS OF "JESUS CHRIST" THAT "SALVATION" IS GIFTED TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE"!!! [ NOT THE WORKS OF OUR SELVES ] "Self Works Salvation" Is Vain Faith In JESUS CHRIST.

I don’t do good works to get saved, I do good works because I am saved.

Good works is a result of my salvation.

“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,” then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:16-17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-10‬ ‭NKJV‬

For it is written in the bible that you shall not be judged upon your works but by your faith. For it is written that he who believes in Jesus shall not perish but have eternal life for Jesus died on the cross to forgive us of all sin for it is written for god so loved the world he gave his only begotten son to die on the cross for our sins for we are all sinners

10 Bible verses that prove faith alone for salvation not faith and works

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8-9‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works: "Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:6-7‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God's righteousness.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭10:3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For if, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:17‬ ‭ESV‬

“Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—”
‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction:”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:22‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:3-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness."”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due. And to the one who does not work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness,”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:4-5‬ ‭ESV‬‬

AMEN 🙏🏻 WE MUST STEP OUT IN FAITH AND LIVE BY FAITH BY FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH TO WHICH WE WERE CALLED 🙌🏻💪🏻❤️💯

AMEN 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜💜 💜

Works, Preach the Father and his love, Remind people life is free will, We have our burdens because of man, Our ignorance because of Lucifer, Our love and wisdom because of God the Father the Creator, God's works are unfathomable, FAITH, Is powerful, Never denounce the Father, Keep your faith strong, Survive to the end, To your dying breath never denounce the Father….

Faith without works dead is a message for already believers to work as Jesus did in front of non believers. James explains this to believers. We should show non believers through our doings that we are believers. Help others and do good to all. Love thy neighbor so he may come to Christ.
But by faith alone we are saved. By the grace of god through our faith in Jesus and what he did for us. Never by ourselves nor our works are we saved.

Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast.

All Glory to God. I

Do not spread false gospels! Esphesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Amen. Father has helped me so much in my darkest times in my life I don't want to live this life without Him! All Praises and Glory to Our Father Yahweh and Our Lord and Savior Yeshua Ha Mashiach Amen Amen.
Please have Faith no matter what you are going through, we who loves and knows Our Father are not alone Father is always with Us, just continue to move through life with Faith and Love for Father Yahweh and his children (Us)
God Bless everyone 🙏

If there is someone who watched and that your are going through a tough time please let the god and the Holy Spirit help you in your journey.

I feel this scripture is the most understood. Catholic think you get in heaven by works. As well as other religions. This is a good lesson!

I have a wish, that us, who belong to the LORD, should talk about "faith and fruit" as our LORD, JESUS CHRIST did. The world uses the word works to attack the faith and fruit required by the LORD. Works can be artificially added but fruit flows out of the heart. This is however a beautiful message brought about true faith. May GOD bless you in the wonderful name of JESUS CHRIST, our Lord and our Savior

What an amazingly wonderful, and blessed way to start your morning off! Thank you heavenly father for your unconditional love for us all! 🙏☕🥓🥞🍳💪🏻💯✊👊👍☕🥐

Works is part of the fruit after being saved by grace through faith. I really don't know why people try to make the good news complicated? Jesus did it all! "It is finished."
God bless

I'm a new Christian musician looking to put my guitar solo at the four corners of the earth, my heart

knows it takes loyal enjoyers of my sound. Faith seems not enough when you are down although faithful. Then God comes and rescues.
