Foreword:

Ever wonder what God might have to say to YOU today? Here are things to ponder, and things to receive into your heart. If you have a question, put it in the comments. I respond as much as I can.

A note for all my readers: I've been experimenting with YouTube videos for Bible teaching for a while, and I'm working through Revelation here. My YouTube videos are currently short studies in Matthew, and at present I'm posting videos on Revelation as well. Both appear on the blog, which is turning into a Vlog. I encourage you to subscribe to my YouTube channel for better coverage.

Faith--> God's blessing and approval

Faith: Brings God's approval, Salvation, a life full of blessing:
"Now faith is the assurance of things we hope for, the things we don't see; for by it the elders (those who've gone before) gained approval"
"If you confess Jesus as Lord with your mouth, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved (from eternal destruction)."
"Whatever things you desire, believe that you received them, and you shall have them..."
Faith has rightly been called the "hand of the heart;" with faith, we reach out to God, and receive the blessings He wants to give to us--as He says, "All the promises of God [Christ] are "YES" in Him..." whatever God has promised comes to you by faith.
