“FEAR Not! Only Believe!”
It’s been my belief for some time that the only real requirement for salvation is true, unhesitant belief. Decide, Resolve, Stand. Some think this is easy. Too easy. If it were easy Yeshua wouldn’t have to repeat it so much. Yeshua also here in these Scriptures states the main impediment to belief – FEAR. I’m not talking about saying you believe. “Talk is CHEAP!”I’m talking about the Thrown-Shaking “belief” that gives you the boldness to act, the “belief” that Eliminates fear. The belief that Defies fear! Thus, faith in the New Testament sense is an action based upon a belief. Believe is the noun – faith is the verb. The belief is so secure that the person is willing to act, even to the point of risking death, because of the confidence in what they believe. (Not what you can prove, but what YOU believe!) In this passage/story/quote the entire new testament is summed up like this four word statement by Yeshua… ‘Fear Not, Only Believe.’
It’s simple but it isn’t Easy!
