Prophecy Thread of Week 45

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth:
Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.

THE RIGHTEOUS LIVE BY FAITH

Just prior to Nebuchadnezzar invading Israel Habakkuk spoke words that would eventually be a foundation of the Christian faith. Not by works, but by faith the righteous live. Hebrews chapter 11 states many of the hero’s of faith throughout history. Today, you too are a hero, living by faith in Jesus Christ the redeemer of all who will believe in Him.
