               Is Believing In God Enough ?


By Peter James from:   


This is a comment, which I received:


“I feel like as if there are many people out there,

who most definitely believe in God,

strive to live a life in him, follow the commands, etc.

They know to live a life in him, but still have trouble just being able

to - I guess 'accept'- how very real He is.


I guess what I'm saying, is that people reach a point of uncertainty,

because it's to much for them to handle.

But still live in faith.


I feel maybe a good way to show an example of that,

is Zacharias in Luke 1:20


"And, behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak,

until the day that these things shall be performed,

because thou believest not my words,

which shall be fulfilled in their season."


This is a subject I've been on for awhile.

Looking for possible input.

Much thanks”


This is my response.


This is not a simple issue at all.

I will address all the relevant points, and its associated topics,

which are raised by this subject.


Let us go right back to the beginning,

in the garden of Eden.


With perfect bodies, and having been placed,

in the most ideal and the most beautiful location possible,

and with the best teacher in the entire creation,

their Creator, Christ, Adam and Eve,

made the conscious decision, to accept Satan’s offer,

to become gods.

They were not satisfied,

and contented with their most blessed condition.

They foolishly thought that there was something else

better, which was available to them, as Satan had lied to them.


So they wanted to become ‘God’.

All that they needed to do, was to obey what Christ,

the Eternal God had told them.

That was all.


It is very important to understand that our calling,

and our walk with the Eternal God, is NOT based

on feelings and emotions.


Today the situation is precisely the same, as it was for Adam and Eve.

Most people, believers, or non believers,

question, where is God, in the midst of all the violence,

pain and suffering, which is engulfing us.

They are saying that they could do a better job,

than the Eternal God.


This again is quite normal for a carnal human being.


Judges 21:25  In those days there was no king in Israel:

every man did that which was right in his own eyes.


This means that the people made gods in their own image.

However, they wanted ‘God’ to be, that is how they made Him.

He would be, what I call  a ‘Gimme God’.

God would fulfill all their desires, down to the smallest detail.

This would be the purpose of their God.


Many people do believe in a ‘God’.

This is true in Western, and Eastern religions,

where they can also believe in countless gods.


It is not a big deal to believe in God.

Even devils believe, and even tremble,

whilst countless human beings neither believe nor tremble.


James 2:19  Thou believest that there is one God;

thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.


It is what you do, with what you understand of the Truth,

that is important.


I must make it very clear, that I do not question the sincerity,

of any of these people.


With respect, I do not for a moment believe that the following is true.


“. . . most . . . strive to live a life in him, follow the commands, etc.

They know to live a life in him,”   


At the very best, most try to live by the standards of their parents.

This is hugely problematic, because in most cases,

these are very bad role models, as very, very few people,

have any idea whatsoever, about the Eternal God, and what He requires. 


It can get much worse, if one allows oneself, to live by the standards

of his or her peers.

Both situations lead do great disasters.


To find people, who actually know the commandments,

and actually obey them, as the Eternal God tells us,

is as rare as hen’s teeth.


I know many people, who can quote the bible,

when you are speaking to them, but this is quite meaningless,

when their lifestyles differ from what they say.

Often they do not even understand that which they quote.


Many of these people can be decent, and sincere,

but that is not the subject being discussed here.


The Eternal God alone, has to call anyone,

and then He, and He alone can convert a person,

and open the mind, as I have often explained.

Seven times we are told that,

I the Eternal God will do everything for the new convert.


Ezekeil 36:25   Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you,

and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness,

and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Ezekeil 36:26  A new heart also will I give you,

and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away

the stony heart out of your flesh,

and I will give you an heart of flesh.

Ezekeil 36:27  And I will put my spirit within you,

and cause you to walk in my statutes,

and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.


The reality is that almost all of these well meaning people,

will tolerate much that might be said to them,

however, mention the law, mention all the commandments,

mention obedience, and you will almost every time hit a solid brick wall.

This has been my experience over a great many years.

These three points are great conversation stoppers.


If you tell others, that they have to make changes to their lives,

and that they have to give up some practices, as they are not of God,

it is very rare, that you will find that they are receptive.


You will be told that the law is no longer relevant for us today.

It has been replaced by ‘Grace’, by which they really mean,

that now anything is acceptable, and as I often say,

they expect that Christ will give them a group hug,

and welcome them to Heaven, after the Rapture.


Both of these scenarios are pure fiction.

Heaven is not the destination of the saved,

and neither is there any escape from the impending judgment

by being raptured away somewhere.

I think that once again they must mean being raptured to heaven.


You can only know to live the life, which Christ requires of us,

if Christ as the Holy Spirit is actually living in us,

as stated in Ezekiel 36:25 - 27 above.

I am yet to find a beliver who understands this.


Most people, who claim to be believers have no idea,

who or what the Holy Spirit is.

They do not believe,

that Christ, and the Father are literally the same being,

that the nation called Israel, which they support, is a counterfeit nation,

that the God of the Old Covenant, is the very same God of the New Covenant,

that the word Israelite and Jews, are not synonymns,

that Sunday is not the Sabbath, and Sunday observance is of Satan,

that the crucifixion was not on Friday, and the resurrection not on Sunday,

that we cannot eat anything, that we like, because it tastes good,

that Christmas has nothing to do with Christ,

that speaking in tongues is demonic,

that homosexuality is wrong,

that the all the commandments regarding living and conduct

in the Old Testament are relevant today.


I have mentioned the above things, because you can easily find

that your ‘Christian friends’, will avoid you,

if you mention any of the above.


Many believe that that all roads,

and religions lead to the Eternal God,

and that all the different roads lead to the same destination, God and heaven.

All of these points are just not true.


The word strait below literally means narrow,

which is the opposite of wide. 


Matthew 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait (narrow)  gate:

for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction,

and many there be which go in thereat:

Matthew 7:14  Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way,

which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.


Many times Christ explained that His way was straight,

and that He will make the way straight.

It is not a mystery.

Neither is it twisted and perverted, and a crooked road,

with hills an valleys.

It does not require a priest or a pastor to be your mentor,

as often they cause huge problems,

as their goals seem to centre on membership numbers,

and tithes and offerings.


Of course there will be ups and downs and obstacles,

but the actual road is very straightforward.

We just need to listen and obey, period.


Mark 1:3  The voice of one crying in the wilderness,

Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.


Luke 3:5  Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill

shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight,

and the rough ways shall be made smooth;


A Jehoval Witness, a Mormon, a Roman Catholic, a Freemason,

a Hindu, a Buddhist, ancestor worshippers, and animists,

who believe, that non-human entities—such as animals, plants,

and inanimate objects—possess a spiritual essence, that is a spirit or a soul,

all have nothing at all to do with the Eternal God,

and almost every single religion is Vatican originated, and Vatican controlled.


The list is endless.

The reason I have mentioned the above is this.

It is most unlikely,

that those whom you might believe are living a Christ like life,

will accept any of the above points.

They will quickly disassociate themselves from you.


The reason is that in spite of appearances they are driven

by a wrong spirit.


You would be very surprised, how very little of what you believe,

these people would accept.


The faith  to which you refer, is a gift of the Eternal God,

just like grace is.

It is the faith of Christ, dwelling in us.


1 Corinthians 12:8  For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom;

to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

1 Corinthians 12:9  To another faith by the same Spirit;

to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;


Romans 12:3  For I say, through the grace given unto me,

to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly

than he ought to think; but to think soberly,

according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.


Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing,

and hearing by the word of God.


Obedience comes before Faith.


“I guess what I'm saying, is that people reach a point of uncertainty,

because it's to much for them to handle.”

But still live in faith.


It is an oxymoron, that is a contradiction, to say that

you are uncertain, and at the same time, have faith.


Faith is a huge subject.


James 1:6  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.

For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.


One aspect of faith is this.

If Christ says something, this is the end of the matter, period.

I might have to wait for a long time, but this is irrelevant.


Hebrews 11:1  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,

the evidence of things not seen.


It is a valid point to say, that the truth is so very different to what

we have all been taught, in every area of life,

that it can be overwhelming.


Our Eternal God told us, that He could only tell us a little at a time,

of what was taking place in reality, because it would be too much

for us, if He told us too much at once.

It is the very same for new believers.


What we now understand,

is so very far removed from traditional Christianity,

most would find it very difficult to believe any of it.


The life of a genuine believer should be completely different,

from that of an unbeliever,

regardless of how decent the unbeliever is.


Zacharias and his wife were both righteous,

but they found it hard to believe, what the archangel Gabriel told them.

It seemed utterly impossible to him, that he and his wife were going

to have a child in their old age

It was exactly the same with Sarah and Abraham.

Sarah could not believe it either.


Luke 1:19  And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel,

that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee,

and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luke 1:12  And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.


Luke 1:13  But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard;

and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.

Luke 1:14  And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.


Luke 1:5  There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea,

a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia:

and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth.

Luke 1:6  And they were both righteous before God,

walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

Luke 1:7  And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren,

and they both were now well stricken in years.


I repeat what I said just now.


One aspect of faith is this.

If Christ says something, this is the end of the matter, period.

I might have to wait for a long time, but this is irrelevant.


This is very important for all of us today.

We can all see that something is very wrong with the whole world.

We can be frightened by the ever increasing violence,

and worry about what we are going to do to survive.


As I am always saying listen, obey, and trust the Eternal God,

and all will be well with you.


There is no need to stock up on guns and ammunition etc.

Our real battle is spiritual, and physical weapons will never have

any effect, on spirit beings.

Therefore put on the right armour.


Ephesians 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,

but against principalities, against powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Ephesians 6:13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God,

that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day,

and having done all, to stand.


Ephesians 6:14  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,

and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Ephesians 6:15  And your feet shod with the preparation

of the gospel of peace;

Ephesians 6:16  Above all, taking the shield of faith,

wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.


Ephesians 6:17  And take the helmet of salvation,

and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Ephesians 6:18  Praying always with all prayer and supplication

in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance

and supplication for all saints;

Ephesians 6:19  And for me, that utterance may be given unto me,

that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,


Pray for all, for whom the Eternal God leads you to pray.

Your lifestyle will say, much more than any words.
