God Will Not Surpass Faithfulness
(Ps101:6; He3:1-6)

God is faithful.
He does not change like shifting shadows (Jas1:17) and
He seeks those who are faithful in their character
To let them come before Him to minister to Him (Ps101:6).

Faith is longing to become a servant of Jesus Christ and
The life of this faith is as a witness and worker of Christ being faithful to death,
never giving up faith to the end (Rev2:13).

Faithful (pistos) refers to being steadfast in affection or allegiance, trustworthy and
As such, there is no nation or society that would not consider it the greatest virtue.

The Bible contains the story of God seeking those whose character is faithful and
Fear God more than others (Neh7:2):
He found Abraham's heart faithful to the LORD and
Thus God faithfully kept His covenant with him and his descendants,
By delivering the Israelites from their slavery in Egypt and
Giving them the inheritance of the land of Canaan (Neh9:7-8);
For God considered Moses who served the LORD in all His house
The same for 40 years as a faithful servant,
He turned Miriam’s skin leprous for she had criticized her brother’s actions (Nu12:1-10).

The fall of Israel came since after settling in Canaan
Their hearts were not loyal to God and
Their spirits were not faithful to Him, not faithful to His covenant (Ps78:7-8, 37).

Yeshua said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days,” because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body (Jn2:19-21),
He would build not an earthly temple made by human hands (He9:1) but
A house not made with human hands, not a part of this creation (He9:11).

He stressed the fact that He came “to do the will of Him who sent Me” (Jn6:38-40) for
The Word in the beginning came as the Son of Man (Jn1:1-2, 14) to
Refresh the soul of the Father who sent Him (Pr25:13; Mt20:28).
As such, He evaded those who wanted to make Him their king (Jn6:15).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) According to the Father’s command said Amen (Jn10:18; Rev3:14) and was faithful to death to the One who appointed Him (He3:2);
2) Judged the devil who changed (Is14:12-15; Ge3:4-6); and
3) Let those who receive the faithful “DNA,” that is, the sprinkling of His redeeming blood, to
become living stones being built into a spiritual house (1Pe2:4-6).

He resurrected and appeared to the disciples to make them His faithful witnesses.
He ascended to heaven and He is the Lamb on the throne (Rev5:9),
The faithful high priest who serves the Father forever (He2:17),
The temple where He dwells with the Father forever (Rev1:5, 21:22).

Moses — a servant — faithful — the temple made by hands (He3:2);
Yeshua — the Son — faithful — building His own house = “we” (He3:6);
“We” — the believers — faithful to the end — become the house where He dwells (He3:6).

The Holy Spirit lets believers bear the fruit of faithfulness (Gal5:22)
Their faithful outcome.

The Christian knows that he has the faithful “DNA” of Christ in his soul, therefore: He builds the church, the house of God, the spiritual house (Mt16:18; 1Ti3:15) — gathers with the Lord (Mt12:30, 18:20; He10:23-25);
For each member has different measures of faith, grace, and gifts, he does not think more highly than he ought,
being diligent and not lazy he serves with zeal (Rm12:3-11);
He becomes a faithful witness who refreshes the soul of his master who sent him (Pr25:13);
To death he never gives up faith (Rev2:10, 13),

For he longs to share in the happiness of the Master and
Serve Him face to face in heaven (Mt25:21).

O Lord,
“A faithful person who can find?” (Pr20:6)…
Let us not try to become those with many talents but
With given talents faithfully carry out our duties.
Let us refresh the soul of our Master and
Be found as the faithful that You seek in the land! Amen!
