FOLLOW THE FAITH OF THE ELDERS

KEY SCRIPTURES: Hebrews 13:7 KJV” Remember them which have the rule over you, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation”.

The word of God calls on the Christian to stand or walk in faith in all situations of life. Our key scripture instructs us to follow proven lives of men of faith, that gives us an assurance of a sure path to tread on. There has been men and woman who walked the path of faith who thought us the word of God. . They have left undeniable proofs of the exploits of faith. The scriptures say that we will also have the same proofs if we just follow their acts of faith. Now consider what God says of the certainty of His word in the lives of those who would dare to believe His word. Hebrews 13:8 KJV “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and forever”. The above scripture is one that have been used so much, revealing the faithfulness of God.

Hebrews 13:8 is a follow up to our key scripture. It says Jesus is forever the same. His faithfulness to Paul, Arch Bishop Benson Idahosa, Pastor Mckweon, and to D L Moody is the same for anyone who would trust him as these men did.  The story is told of D L Moody, about a time in his ministry of caring for orphans who had no food to give to them. There was no hope of anyone bringing them food. D L Moody assured these children that God would provide food that morning. They waited expectantly while they heard a knock on their door. At the door was the driver of a truck load of food. The truck had broken down close to the orphanage and the food would go bad since it was perishable foods. They had to look for someone to take it. God supplied and answered their prayer. Evangelist John G Lake could not be harmed by the deadly viruses of plubonic plaque.

The Lord says learn from such men, follow their faith and Jesus who did it for them would do the same for you, because He is the same and does not change. Heb 6:12 KJV” That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherited the promises”. The instruction is not to be slothful. This means do not be dull in responding to the word of God.

There are countless number of such men, who are living in our times and have conquered by their faith. You can have an example to follow. The Lord assures us to follow their faith and conquer in a similar way they did.

CONFESSION

By faith they subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness and through weakness they became strong. I do follow the examples of these great men and women of faith. I also conquer the enemy in every way.
