No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. (Luke 12:32)
(When one recieves truth with a pure heart they want to in return share it. Your heart is rooted in how you precieve your surroundings and trials. (do you have spiritual eyes and ears?) Seek God First Matt.6:33). Spiritual growth starts from within (1 Cor.6:19)! If God be with you who can be against you? (Rom.8:35) (2 Cor.12:10/ 2 Cor.13:9/) Good works (fruits) are a good sign that someone has faith. Fear not tribulations or persecutions. Take up your cross and Praise God in all things. (Rev.4:11)
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Many that were touched by the tree of life were told: "according to your faith" you are healed!
Repentance comes with belief in God and a change of heart. All have sinned yet when one is drawn to the light and embrace it they become a new person.
Luke 10:19 Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
At the first Passover, those who listened to and Embraced God overcame the death angel. This was a shadow of things to come:
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Christ bacame our Passover and Sabbath)
Heb.2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Jn.3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
