Have faith in The LORD your God and you will be upheld in all your ways. Trials will come, but your Creator provides a way out that you may grow thereby and therein; have faith in the prophets and you will be successful.
Faith in the Old Testament:
My boast is in The LORD, my ALL. Amen.
Just briefly, the just live by faith:
Hold up! How can we say “we are of God” if we do not show Love?
Do we serve The Unseen? Yes! and Amen.
- Genesis 17:1 says, “And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.”
- Genesis 32:30 says, “And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.” (“Peniel” is Hebrew for “the face of God.”)

- 1 Samuel 3:21 says, “And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.”
- 1 Kings 3:5 says, “In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.”
- 1 Kings 9:2 says, “That the LORD appeared to Solomon the second time, as he had appeared unto him at Gibeon.”
- 2 Chronicles 3:1 says, “Then Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the Lord appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.”
Mind you! The Essence of God can take any form. An argument I read once was about the phrase “No Man has ever seen God.” The argument is as such “How can Jesus be God if no Man has seen God?” I am mesmerized by the inaccuracy in this question. Jesus is The Word of God made Man. Remember this – Jesus prayed to God continually
God is said to be The One “Who alone possesses unapproachable light, Whom no Man has seen or can see” (1 Timothy 6:16). We read about “the King, eternal, immortal, invisible” (1 Timothy 1:17), “seeing Him Who is unseen” (Hebrews 11:27). There is a reference to “His invisible attributes” (Romans 1:20).
