My Righteous One will Live by Faith

My Righteous One will Live by Faith

Hebrews 10:38

For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come, and will not delay” (Hebrews 10:37). It will be sudden. This age will end, grace and mercy will end, and judgment and wrath will terminate this age with the wiping out of all sin and all who cause people to sin. Then a home of righteousness will be established for those who have persevered, for those who had confidence and faith in everything He spoke and did not consider their lives anything compared to knowing and doing the will of the Father. So, “For yet in a very little while, He who is coming will come, and will not delay. But My righteous one shall live by faith…” (Hebrews 10:37-38).

It is His righteous ones. If your mind is set on doing what is right, then you will have no desire other than pleasing the Father, for He is called the Righteous One and we are His offspring. We cannot be the offspring of the Righteous One and continue to sin; it is impossible, only people say you can do that. YAHveh says, “My righteous one shall live by faith; and if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him” (Hebrews 10:38 NIV). May we not be of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls.

If you don’t stand by faith, you are not going to stand at all (Isaiah 7:9 NIV) against what is coming on the face of this earth. Only the righteous will stand. They will be standing in the presence of YAHveh (the LORD) and no flood, fire, torrential winds, harm, or eternal destruction will come to them. Our refuge is secure in the Righteous One.

YAHveh does not listen to what comes out of our mouths as much as He sees whether our hearts line up to His. He in essence told Israel, “You weary Me, you weary Me with what is coming out of your mouths, you weary me with your prayers.” “Oh that there were one among you who would shut the gates [temple doors], that you might not uselessly kindle fire on My altar!” (Malachi 1:10). I can imagine YAHveh saying, “Oh, that you would shut the church doors. Oh, that you would shut your own prayer closet door and stop wearying Me with these prayers coming from your sentiment, from your religious doctrines, from deceptive spirits, or from your flesh. Oh, that you would stop wearying me with these senseless prayers not birthed by My Spirit.”

If we are not praying in the Spirit, we are praying in the natural—and we will not receive what we pray for. The prayers that come by the Spirit are the same as our actions, led by the Spirit. They will reap eternal rewards and dividends.
