Faith in God is to be set apart from this world by believing in eternal life in our home of the New Jerusalem. We are definitely strangers among the masses who do not believe, but we wait with endurance for entry into the Paradise of God. In these Christless last days, we have the faith to believe that new Believers can find their way home through Jesus Christ. As of today, there are multitudes and multitudes of the names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. By faith, we wait for a better place which is not the earthly global “democracy,” we wait for an eternal city in Heaven.

Faith to Go Out to Receive the Promised Inheritance.
“By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance.
And he went out, not knowing where he was going.”
By faith, we come apart from the practices of this Christless world as we look ahead to the promise of eternal life. Our inheritance is the New Jerusalem in the new heaven and new earth. As soon as we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we are distinguished from those who surround us who do not believe. They live by the mark of the beast, in the name of humanism, with no belief in the afterlife and with hostility towards the teachings of the Bible.
Faith to Wait for the Promise with God’s People While in this World.
“By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob,
the heirs with him of the same promise;
for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.”
By faith, we would rather suffer within the body of Christ then to live by the Christless and inhumane society of this world. We know we have a better home in the new heaven and new earth which God builds and not people. The masses of this world are set on building a promised land called the global “democracy” which is governed through the mark of the beast. It is built on everything the Bible teaches against, such as the killing of unborn children, same sex marriages, rejection of God, force over truth, denying the need for the atonement of sin through Jesus Christ, etc. For the followers of Jesus Christ, we are like foreigners on this earth, and we are because our home is in the New Jerusalem. We are like the many millions of migrants around the world who do not have as much as a tent, nor a home of any type, to call their own.
Faith to Believe in Salvation Births in the Last Days.
“By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed,
and she bore a child when she was past the age,
because she judged Him faithful who had promised.”
By faith, we believe it is still possible today that people can be born into the family of God. The way to the Cross is still open to accept the sacrifice for sin that Jesus Christ made, there is room for more in the city of the New Jerusalem. Even in these last times, when the Gospel of Christ is being condemned and phased out, a new birth in the Spirit of Christ is possible. There will always be a few faithful followers of Jesus Christ to the very end of the world. Even at the old age of this world, the descendants of Abraham are still being added. Sarah was ninety years of age when she had Isaac, and no matter how old this world becomes in the global tribulation, people will come to Jesus Christ.
Faith of God’s People is Joined with Multitudes of Believers.
“Therefore, from one man, and him as good as dead, were born as many as the stars of the sky in multitude—innumerable as the sand which is by the seashore.”
Abraham was one hundred years of age and Sarah ninety when their promised son, Isaac, was born. To those who do not believe God, it is impossible for a man and woman to have a child at that age. To all of us who do believe, we are their offspring through Isaac, through Jesus Christ. Every follower of Jesus are descendants of that family tree, not by genealogical blood but by the blood of Jesus Christ. Those who believe God are as innumerable as the sand by the seashore, whose names are written in the Lambs’ Book of Life. The descendants of Abraham are born by faith, and by faith we are added to the Lambs’ Book of Life.
“….to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets,“
‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.’”
“I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”
