The just shall live by FAITH

AND IF HE GO BACK, MY SOUL HAS NO PLEASURE IN HIM (Heb 10:38). This word seems to us in the first instance a biblical text as any many others. Not that these others do not have their proper value within the compendium of the Book of books.

If you look decently its content, its essence, we see that its depth is far beyond the obvious things, she pierces human intelligence and intimate dives into the soul of things.

When we read this auspicious biblical text, a question is in bids us do in the real world, but its focus will be in the spiritual world: "MY SOUL HOW FAIR IS REALLY LIVING FAITH?"

How can I get a certified awareness of a correct answer, free of human self, to answer me, without examining me by the light of the word? - Surely ready, the text fruitful to begin to elucidate this important issue is the finding of primate Romans 8:1

"Therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus,"

If I'm second to the Lord Jesus Christ? It's because I'm in divine justice by faith and practice the teachings of his word: "If ye abide in me and my words abide in you. (...) John 15:7. Because, I am not condemned because I am in the role of:

"Who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." (Romans 8: 1)

From what we see good things of the flesh, is that the villains are the passport to get us out of righteousness by faith. So if I walk according to the flesh, I'm in the wrong I LIVE AND NOT OF FAITH.

What few they will agree, and that is biblical: "Many are called but few are chosen. (Matthew 20:16 and 22:14). " Because, I must deny myself to follow the Lord Jesus Christ ("And calling the multitude with his disciples, and saith unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and TAKE YOUR CROSS AND FOLLOW ME. Mark 8: 34) ", and this is undoubtedly the greatest obstacle in this BIG DILEMMA OF THE OPTION OF HAVING TO DENY A MYSELF, MY CROSS TO BEAR AND HAVE THAT MY crucify MEAT.

"I have been crucified with Christ and live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for Me. " (Galatians 2: 20)

A huge battle is fought in the spiritual world. If the Spirit win, crucify the flesh, and the flesh win the Spirit mortify.

"For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other, to not do the things that ye would." (Galatians 5: 17)

In the din of this bloody and decisive battle, THE SOUL IS THE TROPHY IN DISPUTE. Whoever wins will take to the sky or the winter (see Galatians 5:22).

SO, I have to crucify my flesh (carnal vanity) because at the moment I step to worship my BODY exhibiting at the showcase of the world, I'm giving vent to the things of the flesh, and thus the things of the Spirit are abrogated. Now if on the other hand I will sacrifice the flesh, give vent to the things of the Spirit, and thus by reason rationally SPIRITUALLY can worship God.

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (Romans 12:1). "

Without a complete change of attitude, I can not afford to gain things of the Spirit. So there must be A REVOLUTION IN MY UNDERSTANDING, A TRANSFORMATION OF THOUGHT so there is a change of mind, to have victory in this difficult battle deny myself, I no longer conformed to the things of the world:

"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2). "

The lure of the flesh and its conclusive condemnation comes from looking at things that are of the world:

"For ALL THAT IS IN THE WORLD, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and pride of life, is NOT THE FATHER, BUT THE WORLD. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abides forever. (I John 2 17 and 18). "

The Bible tells us that the Gentiles (non-Jews), are seriously hampered by the vanity which dominates our minds and makes us hard-hearted. Vanity entenebrece in understanding and separates us from the life of God, because we want to live life our way and not according to Christ.

"And this I say and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind. Darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; The which, having lost all feeling, have given themselves over to lasciviousness, to eagerly commit all uncleanness. Yet ye have not so learned Christ. Whether it is that you have heard, and were taught in him, as truth is in Jesus, (Ephesians 4:17-21). "

Talk is easy, the hard part is to do the will of God by obeying his word. Just looking to the Lord Jesus WHAT I CAN TRULY LIVING FAITH:

"Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12: 2)

The truly live the faith focuses on obeying the word of God without restriction, and faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God, for without faith it is impossible to please God:

"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that is needed comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him." (Hebrews 11: 6)

The big question is conclusive on whether she really faith will lead us to God? - The Psalmist concerned with whether this condition above, gives a provocative question: who is able to be successful in the Lord's holy hill?

"Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord, or who shall stand in his holy place?

ANSWER: "He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully."

When the soul is steeped in vanity is because meat is the winner and is determining the actions in the exposure of the body, the ego in his superb talk, walk and dress. However, the clean of hands, the pure in heart, that is the soul that is not vain and are not liars:

THE successful: "He shall receive the blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of his salvation. Psalm 24:3-5)."

The Christian life is a life of separation from the things of the world. For the Lord Jesus comes to seek for himself a people zealous of good works; Because:

"Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of mockers." (Psalms 1:1)

"Look therefore PRUDENTLY how ye walk, not as unwise but as wise, (Ephesians 5:15)."
