Can Faith Alone Save?
In the Spring of 2004 during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, YHVH showed me a vision. I was sitting in my chair and on my coffee table was my bible laying open, out of the Gospels I saw a beautiful green living tree arise out of the pages. Conversely out of the other side of my bible where the epistles of Paul were I saw a hideous black gnarled tree arise.
The one out of the Gospels was the Tree of Life, the one out of Paul was the Tree of Death.
Can faith alone save?
James asks this rhetorical question with the obvious answer of NO, faith alone can not and does not save.
Faith alone is dead, there is no salvation through dead faith. Contrary to Pauline Christian doctrine.
Which brings to mind Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
A dead faith is a dead covenant which is what the Pauline New Testament brings forth. Death!
An interesting howbeit veiled allusion is found in Isa 28:15. In the Hebrew of Isaiah’s time there were no vowel points upon the letters as is found in the modern Masoretic Text. The word Hell in Isa 28:15 is formed thru the letters SHL meaning ‘sheol’ however interesting to note that the letters SHL are also translated as Shaul or Saul.
Isa 28:15 is a perfect picture of modern Christianity. Which is a ‘Covenant of Death’ thru a dead faith being in an agreement with Saul/Paul.
Further the Synagogues of Satan mentioned in the Book of Revelation is also a perfect fit for the Pauline Churches today also.
Satan the great deceiver has gathered together an all Pauline anti-Christ religion and paradoxically named it Christianity.
It condemns the works of righteousness, it condemns the Law of God, it condemns the Word of God, it condemns the teachings of Yahshua the Messiah, it condemns the 12 Apostles, it condemns the New Covenant as stated in Jer 31:31-34. It condemns the Gospel of the Kingdom. It slanders YHVH, it slanders Yahshua, it slanders the 12 Apostles. It denounces the teachings of Yahshua as heresy. It also claims YHVH is the author of temptation, It accuses also the Law of YHVH as being the source and power of all sin, Indeed modern Pauline Christianity is the Synagogue of Satan. And Paul is the ‘Accuser of the Brethren’ and the ‘Roaring Lion seeking whom he may devour.’ Galatians/Romans
Contrary to Christianity the entire Gospel of the Kingdom is summed up in the words of James 1:18-21 and completely trounces Paul’s gospel of death.
James 1:18-25 is the Parable of the Sower.
Stressing obedience to the implanted word of truth which is within you or should be within you. Being swift to hear this word of Truth, being quick to obey this word of Truth. Which is The Word spoken and taught He who is the Word of God.
James 1:18 Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
19 Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:
20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.
21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
