The meaning of ‘spiritual faith’

By REV. FICKLEN GUIN
(Luke 2: 26-38)

“Spiritual Faith” is the substance of everything that pertains to God. The opposite of that is world proof, which is all that pertains to mankind by his own endeavors.

But, when we put God and man together through Jesus by His Holy Spirit we have faith with a foundation that can support life everlasting in a person’s spiritual heart. Faith with a foundation can support eternal life for a person who comes to receive spiritual life by faith in Jesus, God’s only begotten Son. God made this possible for us when He allowed Jesus to be physically born into our world liken unto us.

We know this to be true by God’s witness given to us in Luke’s Gospel, chapter two. All of this was done by faith expressed by Gabriel, God’s special chosen angel and Mary, God’s special chosen young virgin woman, which took place over 2,000 years ago in Nazareth.

When this happened, Faith from God was birthed into life on this earth, into mankind’s world through God’s special angel messenger, Gabriel, and Mary, God’s special young virgin woman came to an understanding by word from God in Heaven.

From this moment on, our world would never be the same for mankind. Godly faith came to mankind’s world through God’s spoken word to Mary by Gabriel.

At this point in our message from Hebrews, we must move to Luke 2: 26-38 because this is where “Spiritual Faith” is birthed into our world.

“And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto earth in Galilee of Nazareth to a virgin named Mary. Gabriel told her she was highly favored by God and not to fear. And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth, a son, and shalt call his name Jesus, and He shall reign over mankind, beginning with the house of Jacob and there shall be no end. Mary said ‘How shall this be?’ And the Angel said to her, “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the Son of God will be conceived and be born. And Mary said, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be it unto me according to thy word.” And the angel departed from her. This was the beginning of God’s life-saving faith for mankind that will never end because this miracle of God came to pass.
