402 Only Those With Genuine Faith Gain God’s Approval

When Moses struck the rock, and the water bestowed by Jehovah sprang forth, it was because of his faith. When David played the lyre in praise of Jehovah—with his heart filled with joy—it was because of his faith. When Job lost his livestock that filled the mountains and untold masses of wealth, and his body became covered in sore boils, it was because of his faith. When he could hear the voice of Jehovah, and see the glory of Jehovah, it was because of his faith. That Peter could follow Jesus Christ was down to his faith. That he could be nailed to the cross for His sake and give glorious testimony was also down to his faith. When John saw the glorious image of the Son of man, it was down to his faith. When he saw the vision of the last days, it was all the more because of his faith. The reason why the so-called multitudes of the Gentile nations have obtained God’s revelation, and have come to know that God has returned in the flesh to do His work among man, is also because of their faith. All those who are smitten by God’s harsh words and yet are brought solace by them, and who are saved—have they not done so because of their faith?
