Is Faith the only Way to be Saved?-(Acts 8:14-25; John 6:35-39) Christ has Two Wills- Divine & Human


Good morning. Great is His faithfulness. Christ is Risen!!!

1Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;


Acts 8:14-25- "The Samaritan Pentecost"

vv. 22-24- is what stood out to me and other portions of scripture are pretty self explanatory.


Acts 8:22-24

22 Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. 23 For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.”

24 Then Simon answered and said, “Pray to the Lord for me, that none of the things which you have spoken may come upon me.”


We see in vv.22-24- That FAITH must be accompanied with a total change of one's life, heart and mind or it's all considered WORTHLESS. Simon here in scripture believed on a certain level see v. 13, but he was not justified, because he was POISONED BY BITTERNESS AND BOUND BY INIQUITY.


John 6:35-39- Jesus is the Bread of life


MY OWN WILL see v. 38- Christ has two natures, He has two wills- divine and human will. The Sixth Ecumenical Council, which was held in Constantinople (AD 680-681), proclaimed these two wills of Christ do not work in contrary to one another, but rather "His human will follows, not resisting nor reluctant, but subject to His divinity and to His omnipotent will." See also John 1:14 and John 5:30.


"We set our eyes on the finish line, forgetting the past, and straining toward the mark of spiritual maturity and fruitfulness."

Numbers 6:24-26


“The Lord bless you and keep you;


25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,


And be gracious to you;


26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,


And give you peace.” ’
