‘None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, “Know Yehovah,” for all shall know Me.’ Hebrews 8:11 (NKJV)
Do you know that this life here on earth, is the only time in eternity, that you can experience faith? To act in faith; to choose to believe, pray, seek Yehovah and have Him answer you; to pray for another to be healed, to witness miracles, to hear a precious word from Yehovah for another, and see Him glorified through it. Only during this time on earth do you have the privilege to lead someone to Yeshua, to play a part in someone entering eternal life. Sometimes life is hard, and heart-breaking, and it seems impossible to keep worshiping Yehovah and walking in faith. However, this is when you can choose to love Yehovah; choose to surrender to Him; ask Him to increase your faith and keep you strong. This is the only time you get to offer Him a sacrifice of praise when you feel that you have nothing to give. This journey is the only time you get to choose to serve Him; to repent when you have sinned, to keep short accounts with Yehovah and others. You can humble yourself before Him and experience the incredible blessing of forgiveness. In heaven, there will be no more need for faith – Yehovah will be before you, forever! It is tempting to think that it would have been easier to have been one of Yeshua’ disciples; to see all the miracles unfolding with your own eyes, yet Yeshua said to Thomas, who saw His resurrected body, ‘because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed’ (John 20:29). So stay strong, and have faith while you still can!
