Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? (James 2:25)
Though the law was tough and she shouldnt have done that but still she did it by breaking the law. She did it for God because this law wasnt fair.
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. (James 2:26)
I know many of you pray but look where it takes you if you dont preach the Gospel. It takes you to the graveyard because you dont confess God before people and God doesnt confess you before His angels . Remember that, you dont need to be a genius here. You understand what is faith where God has called you to.
If you hear in your ear what Holy Spirit tells you to then it is written that with faith you believe for righteousness and with mouth you confess for salvation. You were saved because you testified with your mouth and thats how you must continue your whole life.
You must listen to what the Holy Spirit tells you in your heart and to be delivered from this or that situation you must preach the Gospel. What then happens ? Then Father sees that you do this that you testify Him before people and He will tell His angels something. If you testify then He says something to angels but if you are silent and only though prayer try to become righteous then you will not escape these situations that enter into your life .
Who believes in his heart and confesses with his mouth will be saved.
You must continue to do that. This must be your lifestyle. Not only once. You were saved it works. You are sure. You got baptized, many times miracles happened. Why? Because you preached the Gospel, you told about Jesus. Dont start right away with Jesus. Just speak about something and you will here all about their problems. You say that Jesus is the answer. Easy! You dont need to force them your faith or explain something. If you want Jesus, long lasting results then you need Jesus. You dont need to say anything except: „Turn to Him!“ and leave. You sowed a seed. If He is a good person he will do accordinf to it when he ends up in trouble. You have done your job. Your heart is clean. If he is a very good person then he will ask questions himself: „Oh, how?“ Then of course comes prayer of salvation and invitation to the Church. If you are not experienced yet and dont know for sure then say: Jesus is the solution. You want to know how He helps?“
