“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.”
“…Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
Jesus preached several times during his earthly ministry about the importance of faith. Jesus commanded his disciples to “Have faith in God.” We must have faith in God in order to overcome the wiles of the devil and we must be armed with the shield of faith “wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.” (Ephesians 6:16)
Jesus also prophesied that as times neared sooner to when He would come back, that it would be hard to find faith on the earth. Many people simply don’t have the faith that it takes to be saved, and therefore, that means many more people will be going to hell than Heaven. That is the sad truth according to Isaiah 5:14. Faith is a virtue that is lacking among many people in this fallen world and may we continue to pray for our friends and loved ones who may not be saved, that they would come to faith and be saved, so that they may have an eternal Home in Heaven.
