Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Here is a passage on faith: “Once Jesus was among a crowd in which a woman suffering from an issue of blood for 12 years was present. In order to be healed she leaned out and touched the hem of his cloak. Immediately He knew it for he said, “…Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me (Lk.8:46)”. Here we have the nature of faith. Jesus assured her in the end, ‘Thy faith hath made thee whole…’ Jesus as the Word had no quarrel with it. So he tells her ‘Go in peace (v.48).’ Faith is called the ‘invisible controls’ of the Law. There is only one Law as there is only one God and one faith (Ep.4:5).-{Selected/50.0- Soundings-2020}”

Faith on a superficial level connects. Our trust in a…

The Just shall live by faith”-credo of Christian Living.

Every Christian has been called and has been known and as the Parable of the Great Banquet has it, the word of God urges him, “Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.(Matt.22:4)”

There shall come a time when God shall write off many names from the list,-Predestination it is called, and the reason? ‘The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.” Is God to be blamed when Samson who was called to be Nazarene lost his calling in the riotous living? His gifts and calling are irrevocable but instead of being led by the Spirit we quench it by dismissing its discipline for which you alone is to blame. In the life of Mighty Samson we find…

This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;/ And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more (vv.16-17)”.

We have in the previous post considered the significance of ‘this day’ and it is to understood not in literal sense but as having spoken by the Spirit of God’s Time. “Those days” is similar to it and it is not earth time we are considering. As such when we read that ‘Now is the day of salvation’ we are to see it as within a timeframe where God having foreknown us adds the command,’Go likewise you do(Lk.10:37)’ It is how St Paul on his way to Damascus did and every saint whose name is written in the book of life has done.

For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. (v.1)


Eternal Word or the Law is perfect. It underpins the Fellowship of God with Man. Against this backdrop the law, as the writer to the Hebrews touches upon is ‘the very image’ of perfection. Similarly the temple made of human hands cannot be considered as perfect.

The law having a shadow of good things points to the eternal Word. When the Lord declared the decree ”Thou art my Son…’ it was what the word established eternally.”I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee(Ps.2:7)”. In the context of the eternal Law what  significance shall ‘this day’ hold? Is…
