What's on your mind?I saw your audio bible and got fascinated. I pastor a local church which to read yoruba is difficult for many. It cuts my heart. How can l have any of your devices to give them next year?
The Only Cure for Sin or Deadness is Jesus Christ We move on to Ephesian Chapter 2 - where Paul spells it out - and no matter where we read his writing – he spells it out - clearly and positive and challengingly. You were dead - in your transgressions and sins - the ruler of the kingdom of the air - this enemy who attacks us at times pervades the very atmosphere - and he is still at work in those who are disobedient. We were dead – not just weak or sick – but dead – and to change that situation, someone had to come from outside us – and that person was Jesus Christ. This is ‘good news’ – this is the Gospel! I was reading about a man who said - "But I don't believe in the devil" - to which the reply was - "He'll be glad to hear that". These opening words of Chapter 2 are written to those who are disciples of Jesus Christ. Well, that is straight - blunt - and to the point! That type of language could make certain people walk out of services in certain places! "I'm not listening to that - even though it might be coming from the very throne of God!" But it just happens to be true - because when man fell in Eden - in that perfect parkland - he was cut off from the life of God. Paul goes on to enlighten the eyes of their heart - and the eyes of the mind too. You used to live - and you used to follow the ways of the world - and the ruler of the kingdom of the air - the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. Verse 3 – All of us used to live like that. We hear some things said so often - What is the world coming to? What is wrong with the world - and the people in it? But much more infrequently do we hear – And, what is wrong with me? Know your disease - and know the cure. That is what Paul is saying to us in these verses. This is what WE WERE, before we came to know Jesus Christ. It is quite medical - Diagnosis - Prognosis - and Prescription. And when we come to a diagnosis - we realise the prognosis is quite serious - but how are we to deal with it? Medicine or Surgery? The Bible says - Your disease is SIN. The Bible does not use nice soft compromising words. It doesn't use words like vice - crime - our weaknesses - and seldom does it speak about our faults. It does use the word SIN. Trespass - to go where you should not go - to break God's law - to pay little heed or no attention at all to your conscience - or even to ignore or disobey your conscience - or - to fall short of the life you intended to live. All this is in these opening words. The diagnosis and the prognosis - Paul goes into all this. How do you know you have this disease called sin? What is its chief character? What is its chief symptom? DEATH! A man may be living it up - but that man is dead - a corpse, spiritually speaking. Try and talk to someone about God and Jesus and you find they are not interested. There is a deadness there - no spark of response. Sin produces corpses - and they are COLD. There is no warmth about them. A corpse is hard and cold - not soft and tender and sensitive and living and loving - and a corpse is prone. It cannot stand - it lies down. It has corruption and decay in it. That son who ran away to the far country - and spent and squandered his father's money - was spiritually dead. But when he came to his senses and returned home repenting - father said - "This my son, was dead, and is alive again!" ‘The prodigal son’ - even when he was living it up in the night clubs - was dead. He thought all that was the good life - but he was spiritually dead. People who do not respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ are spiritually dead. That is why they do not respond - and that is why we pray for people - so that the Holy Spirit would give them LIFE! Where do we get the disease - from the world - from the devil - and from the flesh. (I John Chapter 2) We are born into a world that was already infected - and we caught it. Sin is highly contagious. So - we conform to this world - and it can be hard to resist - and when we do resist it can be very costly. We get an insight here as to how evil is so well organised - internationally - "The ruler of the kingdom of the air". His domain is in the very atmosphere. Jesus called him the prince of this world. Paul had trouble in all the various nations he visited. Make no mistake about who is behind all the evil that is in this world - and his aim is to make you SIN! He attacks the flesh and the brain - the mind as well as the body. Flesh means - everything you inherited when you were born. The body and the brain we were born with, is part of this fallen world - and we all have this struggle. So - if that is the diagnosis - what is the prognosis - or - how serious is our condition? Will it clear up? Will it just go away? Will we grow out of it? Will all our problems just vanish and disappear? NO! NO - the prognosis is - you have a killer disease. You are a dead man - and without the cure you are dead for ever. You are children of wrath – and you stand up under the anger of God. There are times when HE takes off the brakes - and man hurtles down the hill faster and faster. Is this not what we are seeing just now – in a new way and at a faster pace - with everything being shaken - so that, that which cannot be shaken may remain? “Loving Father – to be in Christ is to be alive – for that I give You thanks and praise. Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for going to the cross and shedding your blood that I may have my sin and sins forgiven – and be raised to life – real life – eternal life. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – I give thanks – we praise and worship.” Amen. (This week's "Word from Scotland" - previous pieces may be read at Studylight.org and liveasif.org in the 'Archives' - warmest greetings in Christ Jesus.)
Humans have a sinful nature because absolutely everything we need to survive comes from outside of ourselves, beginning with air, water, and food. So that if our need is strong enough to overcome our sense of right and wrong it will do it. Plus we also have wants, many of which are sinful in nature, and often those wants can easily overpower our moral values, depending on the circumstances. We have no power over our own sinful nature, apart from the power of the Spirit, and this is by design, so that we will have no choice but to eventually turn to God for help. Romans 7:18 18) For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. John15:5 5) I am the vine and you are the branches. If I live in you and you live in Me, you will bear much fruit, apart from Me you can do nothing. --- The solution to this problem is the Holy Spirit within us, which is 'the full power of God', available to us by faith without doubt.--- Matthew 17:20 (NIV) 20) He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Romans 8:13 13) For if you live by its dictates [your sinful nature], you will die. But if -- through the power of the Spirit -- you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature, you will live.
Mistakes when understood is a step towards wisdom
God is not looking for 'good works' from us, He is looking for faith. Why? Because we have no 'good works' apart from Him. God can give us 'all' the good works we can handle through the power of the Holy Spirit through faith. What God cannot do is have faith in Him 'for us', it would make absolutely no sense. Even James knew this when he said. "Faith without works is dead." He was telling us that 'good works' are the proof of genuine faith from God, and that without 'faith' there will be no 'good works'. James 1:16-17 (NRSV) 16) Do not be deceived, my beloved. 17) Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights [God], with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. ---James wrote this 'before' he wrote "Faith without works is dead."---

James 2:14-26 (NLT) Faith without Good Deeds [works] Is Dead 14) What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? 15) Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, 16) and you say, “Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? 17) So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless. 18) Now someone may argue, “Some people have faith; others have good deeds.” But I say, “How can you show me your faith if you don’t have good deeds? I will show you my faith by my good deeds.” 19) You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror. 20) How foolish! Can’t you see that faith without good deeds is useless? ---Faith is not the proof of 'good works'. 'Good works' are the proof of our faith and God's Spirit working in us, because 'all' good works come only from God, not from human effort'. We will have no 'good works' apart from God's Spirit.--- John 15:5 5) I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in Me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from Me you can do nothing. James 1:16-17 (NRSV) 16) Do not be deceived, my beloved. 17) Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights [God], with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

We record and provide the Word of God in every translated language.

Half of the world's population can't read well enough to understand the Bible. Seventy percent learn and live in oral cultures. They need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their heart language! To answer this need, Faith Comes By Hearing partners with like-minded ministries and people like you to record Scripture in every language of the world that needs it and make these recordings freely available by every means possible.

For more than 40 years, Faith Comes By Hearing has been committed to providing everyone with access to the pure Word of God in their own language – with a particular focus on those with the least access to God’s Word around the world. From cutting-edge online and mobile technologies to solar-powered Audio Bibles currently used in almost every country, Faith Comes By Hearing continues to innovate and invite people to hear God's Word for themselves.

Mission: To record and provide the Word of God in every translated language.
