Faith in humans?

Not our “saving faith”, but faith in people can and will, let us down.

We must be reminded that people are human beings and capable of “Treason”.

What is Treason? Webster describes it as follows:

“act of handing over, betray, the betrayal of a trust, treachery”.

What is Treachery?

“to deceive, violation of allegiance or of faith and confidence, treason, an act of perfidy”.

What is “Perfidy?”

“to betray, to deceive by trust: the quality or state of being faithless or disloyal”.

So we need to make sure our faith is in God through Christ, should someone close to us chose to commit an act of treason. We need to be reminded that even those who are the closest to us are human, and are capable of all things under the sun.

“It still remains to be seen what mankind can do apart from God”

    Hi Richard. Thanks so much for stopping by the site. I’m not able to get out here as frequently as in times past, but still I’m trying to stay as current as possible.

    This post ties in with an issue that’s been coming to the forefront much lately. People can let us down and, in the right circumstances, those close to us can turn against us. As we plunge into the height of the tribulation period, those who are closest to us but yield to the beast sysytem will present the biggest temptation. They wield far more influence over us than a beast government ever could. We must ensure that our affections are on things above. Sometimes in considering the events to come, I wonder if any of us truly grasp what’s unfolding.

    It’s great to hear from you. Blessings always in Jesus name.

    Timbob,
    Good to hear from you also brother.
    So true. The only way we can began to grasp what is taking place, is by living and walking in the Spirit. If we are living and walking in the flesh, we are missing out on what’s taking place. As you well know, it’s a spiritual kingdom, and it takes the Spirit to see and understand.
    God bless you and your family!
