Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth My Servant the BRANCH.
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the Word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, "Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. (Zechariah 3:8, 4:6)
In all ages, salvation is by faith. Faith in the forgiveness of our sIn through the power of GOD when we surrender to Him on His terms. Jesus is calling all men to Himself to be saved. Faith in His finished work on the Cross. Jesus put to death the flesh that we might be made the righteousness of GOD in Him. Faith in His provision and protection. Jesus offers you eternal life, abundant now and everlasting. The Spirit of GOD within those that receive is the down payment on that promise. Repent, Believe, and Receive to be born again by the Spirit of GOD.
If the Spirit of GOD testifies with your spirit that you are a child of GOD, share His grace with those around you as a good steward of His gifts unto you.
