Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus,

 13)  For ‘whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved’ (Joel 2:32).  14)  But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless unless someone tells them?  15)  And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is what the Scriptures mean when they say . . .”   Romans 10:13-15 (NKJV & NLT)

How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!”  Isaiah 52:7 (NIV)

The laws of man never supersede the laws and/or precepts of GOD; neither does unbelief change GOD. That is, man’s opinion never changes the nature and character of GOD reflected in His laws and/or precepts. To paraphrase that succinctly stated by another: GOD doesn’t grade on a curve, His standard is 100% period.1 By God’s Word we may know that the only One who passed is Christ Jesus; so too those “in Him”. Hallelujah!

 Watch closely. I’m laying a foundation in Zion, a solid granite foundation, squared and true. And this is the meaning of the stone: A TRUSTING LIFE WON’T TOPPLE.” Isaiah 28:16 (MSG)

The Ministry of Reconciliation set by GOD from the foundation of the world was made manifest 2,000 years ago by the obedient One – YESHUA/JESUS for all mankind (1 Peter 1:20; John 3:16; Romans 3.25 & 5:6; Hebrews 4:3,12). The grace (unmerited favor) of GOD removed the barrier manifested by the disobedience of Adam through the perfect obedience of Christ Jesus and our faith in Him (Romans 5:1-21). Faith puts GOD’s promises above what we see in the natural realm (2 Corinthians 4:18). Therefore, we endeavor to strengthen the measure of faith bestowed. For the saying that GOD is no respecter of persons means  that the Lord Jesus fixed it such that there are no favorites; absolutely no credentials ranking one person higher than another because the blood of Jesus puts all who believe and confess Him on equal terms. More specifically, God the Father sees each one reconciled unto Him by the Blood as He sees His only begotten Son – JESUS. Therefore, whatsoever GOD has done for one person, He will do for all (Hebrews 11:1-3 & 4:1-3; Genesis 17;4-5; Romans 3.25 & 4:16,19 & 5:17 & 10:13-17). GOD is in those reconciled unto Him by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus; His power within works effectively through those yielded as a result of quality time in God’s Word as well as prayer. Be cognizant of speaking as well as singing unbelief in order to say that which agrees with what God has said; the fact that God is in you necessarily means He can’t ever pass you by.
