I would immediately and with good conscience before God lie to save some children or my family from getting hurt by some evil perpetrator. I am sure that the Lord would forgive me for such a thing. This is not the same as bearing false witness against my neighbor or having a lying spirit and I believe in truth and honesty are the rule.
Good point . . ./part of the gospel Just as the parable with Abraham and Isaac. No power from the flesh of dying mankind.
Interestingly Abraham is used with her in a comparison in the loving commandment not to the faith or power of God love that works in us poured out on dying flesh .
Purple ( My addition)
James 2:1King James Version My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. (Flesh and blood)
God's name is Jealous and he will not share hisglory with dying flesh and blood.
James 2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works,(Christ working in him) when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith (Christ's) wrought with his works,Christ's and by works was Christ'sfaith made perfect? And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it (Christ's work of faith )was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
The Holy Scriptures contain Iron Clad Promises, Iron Clad Facts, and Principals. We "must" study carefully to understand YHWH's intent as He has recorded these points for the direction of our lives. At least 95% of the folks "naming themselves" Christians are doing so without ever submitting themselves to the Indwelling of Ruah, A.K.A. the Holy Spirit.
Before I ended my pursuit of C&W Fame, I purchased a copy of the KJV Bible but the words, the writings, were gibberish to me. On the evening I was overcome, indwelt with Ruah Isiah 53 made perfect sense to me, and the first time I heard a Teacher call that chapter "The Gospel of Isiah, it made perfect sense. Without Ruah it is impossible to discern the intent the writer is conveying to us.
The best example of this disconnect is the Church. Most people go to Church and a Very Few know they are Parts of The Church.
