The Just Shall Live by Faith

4 times in scripture – Hebrew 2:4 – “by His faith”

3 times in NT – each with different emphasis

  • Martin Luther’s Salvation _ climbing “Sancta Scala” sacred stairs
    • Not by works – but by faith – just justify – declared not guilty
  • Shades of white – “just” 100% pure (Job 9:2)

Noah – Genesis 6:8-9 – Why did God favor him?

    • Not because – God plays favorites or his family
    • Because: He believed God about the rain…enough to act…alone! (Hebrew 11:7)

Abraham – Genesis 15:1, 5-6, 21:1-2 (16 years later)

  • Imputed righteousness – (Romans 4:3, 19-20, 21-22)

To write down / to put on his tab, account (Hebrew 11:3)

      • Texas ranch (H. Ironside) – Lambs skin for acceptance

Lot – II Peter 2:7-8 – (Genesis 18:20) – Sodom – (Lev. 20:13)

  • He was the only just one there – in God’s view
  • 3 “holy” widows – not wanting lady w/”a past” to join

Conclusion: I John 4:17 – as He is – so are we!
