We all read this short and easy to remember verse in the Bible from Romans 1, it says:”For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith, just as it is written: The righteous will live by faith.“
Romans 1:17 CSB
Everyone has an understanding and can certainly tell in plain words what is this verse about, anyone is able to understand such a short passage of the scripture which is quite understandable if all can.
But… What if it meant something else and was deeper than we could even fathom and that all our understanding of this simple verse that we barely scratched the surface, however, has a mind boggling warning that has to do with future events so to say the end times?
What if we somehow were all wrong and had applied it in the incorrect way?
For it to make sense, let’s have a look into the verse and see if it relates to a prophetic understanding as we shed light around crucial periods of time in the lives of many who believed and served God without fearing for their lives and for the fact of a matter they were all rewarded justly because of their faith.
First off, we’ll break this verse down into two and see how it applies to our lives, how it finds meaning, this plain word of encouragement that whether or not it mirrors the far end future events of the end times for such a time as this.
The meaning of a righteous person
A testimony from the Lord God about Job would make Job a good example in support of our statement. We read in the Book of Job, in chapter 1,”
Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? No one else on earth is like him, a man of perfect integrity, who fears God and turns away from evil.” Job 1:8 CSB
Who is/are called righteous in the Bible?
Those who are righteous are the ones who fear God and despise evil in all its forms.
What is faith?
The Book of Hebrews teahches us as clear as it could be what faith is about and so goes the verse in Hebrew, chapter 11,”Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. For by it our ancestors won God’s approval.” Hebrews 11:1-2 CSB
Who can have faith?
Everyone one way or the other has faith. However, there might exist a pletora of all kind of faiths that we may not know of ever have existed. The question is not about who doesn’t have faith because everybody does and need it, use it, rely on some sort of belief and that’s anyone’s mobile because everyone wants to believe and to hang on to something or someone. The need to believe is the substance and the very essence of life itself. Therefore, the question is, who can have faith?
This kind of faith we are about to delve into is way different and of the utmost importance. It’s not just natural, experimental, and is tested through the hardship of life and transcends all boudaries. For that matter, faith is the key to the supernatural as it operates in the supernatural and opens doors and portals to dimensional realms of an unknown reality to us.
Before any science ever came to be, faith existed long ago and have always been. It is said in the word of God, in Hebrews, chapter 11,”
