Actions Speak Louder Than Words

James wrote by THE SPIRIT in chapter 2:

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,

16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

When we hear FATHER’S Word, we are expected to act on It.  This is true in every directive HE gives us without exception and there is an inherent simplicity in walking by faith.  As I have written in the past, Jesus provided for seven redemptive promises which correspond to FATHER’S seven characteristics.  Man has a tendency to muddy the water by attempting to complicate FATHER’S Word.  Faith is simple: FATHER speaks a specific Word and we walk, speak, and act accordingly.  There is no complexity in this Truth yet man wants to add to it and create a religion out of it.  We need not wrap complexity around a simple directive given to us by FATHER.  Just walk according to HIS Word!

The Beloved Disciple wrote by THE SPIRIT in 1 John chapter 3:

18  Little children (believers, dear ones), let us not love [merely in theory] with word or with tongue [giving lip service to compassion], but in action and in truth [in practice and in sincerity, because practical acts of love are more than words].

19  By this we will know [without any doubt] that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart and quiet our conscience before Him.   AMPL

How straightforward are the above directives?  If you truly have the revelation of Agape Love, act on it.  If you truly have the revelation of faith, act on it.  Do we need to do an exhaustive word study on Love and faith before we act?  Do we need to seek out fifty scriptures in the Old Testament to confirm these two passages are true?  Did Abraham require FATHER to write a book on faith before he could believe HIM to do the impossible?  As we act according to HIS Word, our Love and faith will grow and become strong.  Our praises are verbal acknowledgements of WHO is preeminent in our walk and acts.  Now is the time to act in the simplicity of HIS Word toward us and there is no need to wrap complexity around It.
