FAITH OBEYS THE WORD

This is the Second message of a series on the topic of “FAITH” from the book of James. This month’s message is “Faith obeys the Word”. This is the day, the time and the hour to hear and receive the very Word of God and believe it and stand upon the Word of God.

 

As you read the following inspired scriptures written by Paul the Apostle in the Book of James referring to Faith Obeys the Word; “WILL WE OPEN OUR EARS TO HEAR WHAT SAYS THE WORD OF GOD?”  “OR WILL WE CHOSE TO KEEP OUR EARS AND HEART CLOSED TO GOD” IT’S YOUR CHOICE.
