The continuation of part one of "What is the FAITH of Jesus Christ"?
 
(Mat 8:8-10 KJV) "The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. {9} For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. {10} When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great FAITH, (Understanding of the power of authority of God's Kingdom) no, not in Israel."

 

As a solder in the Roman Army, he understood how the authority of Rome is passed down to those who only have the well fair of the Roman State in mind. Because of this, he also know that the authority of the Kingdom of the God of Israel is only passed down to those only who are obedient to do the will of God in heaven. Because he know how he had received his authority from Rome, he also understood the delegation of authority in the Kingdom of God. It to is passed down only to obedient servants in the Kingdom of God. He had great Faith in the authority of the words spoke by Jesus Christ as he know the Angels of God would be obey to His every word and would fulfil the words of their Master. To have authority given to you by your Master, one must be righteous in the WAYS of his Master. He know that because of Jesus righteousness in obeying the Father, had been given authority over every thing on earth. Such a great understanding of the powers of Israel's God delegated to His Righteous servants because of their righteousness in obeying Him was not understood even by His disciples at that time. They had not yet learned totally disciplined to do the will of the Father in Heaven. Thus the statement by Jesus: "I have not found so great FAITH, no, not in Israel."

(Mat 8:26 KJV) "And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little FAITH (Understanding) ? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm." (Mark 9:23 KJV) "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."

Here we have Jesus Christ rebuking the Disciples because the did not yet understand the authority of the Righteous man in Christ. A man who is only obedient only to do the will of Christ.   For a person to be restored to having the Father's  authority on earth, he must become once again filled with the righteousness of the Father in Heaven. This will only happen when one is obedient to do the Father's will. It all starts with accepting the covenant God made with Israel and being obedient to obey Him in it. Adam was given Authority over every moving thing on earth but lost that authority by being unrighteous in obeying God's commandment not to eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The sin here was DISOBEDIENCE.

(Heb 1:8-9 KJV) "But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. {9} Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee --".

Jesus who never sinned because of His total obedience to live only by His Father's Righteousness from Heaven, gained back what Adam had lost when He, Jesus received "Christ" back into His person by His Anointing as King over all the Earth's realm.

Without the SCEPTRE of RIGHTEOUSNESS you have no authority from the Kingdom of God. You must also hate evil and love the righteous of the Father to receive His SCEPTRE. "Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity;"

(1 Tim 1:9 KJV) "Knowing this, that THE LAW WAS NOT MADE FOR A RIGHTEOUS MAN, but for the LAWLESS and DISOBEDIENT, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,"

(James 5:16 KJV)  "The effectual fervent prayer OF A RIGHTEOUS  man availeth much."

  (Rom 1:5 KJV) "By whom we have received grace and apostleship, FOR OBEDIENCE TO THE FAITH (The right understanding AND OBEYING of the Gospel) among all nations, for his name:"

(Rom 3:3 KJV) "For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith (of the righteous with the right understanding) of God without effect?"

(Rom 3:28 KJV) "Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith (Through living by the right understanding of the Gospel) without the deeds of the law."

(Rom 3:31 KJV) "Do we then make void the law through ( our right understanding of the Gospel of) FAITH? God forbid: yea, we establish the law (Through our right understanding of the Gospel)."  ITS OUR OBEDIENCE TO THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST THAT BRINGS US TO HAVE THE SAME FAITH THAT JESUS HAD.

 Jesus was obedient to His Father's teachings, the same teachings He is teaching us in the Hebrew's Bible.

If one is not obedient to do the teaching of the Father as Jesus was, he does not have the same FAITH that Jesus had. We are saved through the FAITH of Jesus Christ if that same FAITH lives in us.

(Rom 4:9 KJV) "Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that FAITH (the right understanding of the Gospel) was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness."

(Rom 4:13 KJV) "For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of FAITH ( The same FAITH Jesus Christ had) ."

(Heb 11:6 KJV) "But without FAITH (Understanding of the Gospel) it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

(Heb 11:7 KJV) "By FAITH (Understanding of the Gospel) Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith."

(Heb 11:8 KJV) "By FAITH (Understanding of the Gospel) Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went."

(Heb 11:9 KJV) "By faith (Understanding of the Gospel) he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:"

(James 2:1 KJV) "My brethren, have not the faith (Understanding of the Gospel) of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons."

(James 2:14 KJV) "What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith (Can just Understanding of the Gospel) save him?"

(James 2:17 KJV) "Even so faith (Understanding of the Gospel), if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."

(James 2:26 KJV) "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith (Just Understanding of the Gospel) without works is dead also."

(1 Pet 1:5 KJV) "Who are kept by the power of God through faith (Our Understanding of the Gospel) unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."

(2 Pet 1:4-6 KJV) "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. {5} And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith (Your Understanding of the Gospel) virtue; and to virtue knowledge; {6} And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;"

(1 John 5:4 KJV) "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even OUR FAITH (Our Understanding of the Gospel)."

(Jude 1:3 KJV) "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly CONTEND FOR THE FAITH (Having Christ's Understandings is the light of the Gospel) which was once delivered unto the saints."

(Jude 1:20 KJV) "But ye, beloved, building up yourselves ON YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH, (Christ's Understanding of the Gospel) praying in the Holy Ghost,"

(Rev 14:12 KJV) "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they THAT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, and the FAITH (The Understanding of the Gospel) of Jesus."
