We the People…..


We stand accepted among God‘s elect.Romans 11:5Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. , 19: “Even so then, at this present time there is a remnant according to the election of grace . . . Because of unbelief they [disobedient Israelites] were broken off, and you stand by faith”  (see also 2 Corinthians 1:24Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand..

 We obey God.Hebrews 11:8By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.   “By faith  Abraham obeyed . . .”

   We conduct ourselves as God directs—not according to our own perception.2 Corinthians 5:7(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) : “For we walk by faith,  not by sight.”

We come confidently before God.Ephesians 3:12In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. : “. . . In whom [Christ] we have boldness and access with confidence through faith  in Him.”

 We expect and experience miracles.  Matthew 17:20And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. .: “For assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith  as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you” (see also Mark 9:23Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. ).

 We are healed.Acts 3:16And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. :

“And His [Jesus’] name, through faith  in His name, has made this man strong . . . Yes, the faith  which comes through Him has given  him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all” (compare Mark 5:34And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. ; James 5:15And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. ).

 We have courage to endure trials and receive God’s promises.Hebrews 11:33-34 [33] Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, [34] Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.
“. . . Who through faith  subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong . . .”

We overcome the world.1 John 5:4For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. : “And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.”

We inherit the promises of God.Hebrews 6:12That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.  “. . . That you do not become sluggish, but imitate those who through faith  and patience inherit the promises.”

 We ultimately receive salvation.1 Peter 1:7-9 [7] That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: [8] Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: [9] Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
That the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ, whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing,  you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, receiving the end of your faith —the salvation of your souls.”

We are given eternal life.John 3:16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes  in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (see also verse 15).
