Will your works stand both on earth and forever in the eternal realm?
What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? (James 2:14 KJV)
Faith that is genuine shows itself through works which give glory and honor to God. Real faith always produces works that point to God rather than pointing out works of man. Genuine faith always produces spiritual evidence aligning with God’s Word and blossoming forth, even in adverse climate and withstands spiritual storms in this world.
Faith a man professes by mouth which is based solely upon flimsy and fleeting standards of this world will bring about no works, combustible works, or works which quickly rot and decompose bringing about pesky flies as the works fade away in the midst of strong spiritual storms of life.
Faith that lasts brings about works, not based upon anything in this world, but on the eternal supernatural power and strength of God. Faith which is of God spiritually preserves mankind now and for all eternity.
Only works based upon the solid foundation of God will remain steadfast both in this world and for all eternity. Works of man based in this world have no profit whatsoever now and no significance in the heavenly spiritual economy of God in the eternal realm.
