Faithfulness Part 3

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…

Twelve things’ Christians hoped for (continues): [12] Being like Christ – the hope of the rapture is an incentive to purify one’s self even as Christ is pure (1Jn. 1:7, 9; 2:6; 3:3, 5-10; 5:1-4, 5:18).

From 1John 3:1-3 we can see that we have to live a life of purity and there are twenty proofs that purity is now possible: He shall save … from … sins (Matt. 1:21). For the remission of sins (Matt. 26:28). Dead to sin (Rom. 6:2). Body of sin might be destroyed, that we should not serve sin (Rom. 6:6). Reckon oneself dead to sin (Rom. 6:11). Let sin not reign in your body (Rom. 6:1-23). Sin shall not have dominion over you (Rom. 6:14-23). Being made free from sin (Rom. 6:18). Made me free from sin (Rom. 8:1-4). They that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts (Gal. 5:16, 24). That we should be holy and without blame before Him in love (Eph. 1:4). Live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world (Tit. 2:12). Purged our sins (Heb. 1:3; 9:14). Be holy; for He is holy (1Pet. 1:16). The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin (1Jn. 1:7, 9). Ought to walk even as He walked (1Jn. 2:6). Whosoever abides in Him sins not . . . is righteous, even as He is (1Jn. 3:6-7). He that sins are of the devil (1Jn. 3:8-10; John 8:44). Whoever is born of God sins not (1Jn. 4:17; 5:4-5, 18). Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord (Heb. 12:1-29).
