Doubt

Doubt, as defined by Webster is; something that is uncertain, untrustworthy or undependable.  Doubt adds the element or condition to a situation that indicates it can not be sure and that hope placed in it has the possibility of failure.  If faith in God and Jesus Christ is to be a sure thing then there can be no doubt.  If it had been possible that Jesus could have sinned then faith is meaningless and salvation in question.  The words of all the prophets who foretold of the coming messiah could not be trusted.  The people in the days of these prophets heard words that would have been unreliable, uncertain. 

God Himself swore and oath to Abraham and to David about a promised messiah who would be Gods salvation to humanity and reign in a future kingdom of God.  God swore this oath, how reliable, trustworthy, dependable and certain do you think this oath would be?  The oath God swore dealt with all future events in the life of Jesus Christ His son.  Jesus knew of this oath that God swore and how when God speaks with and oath the outcome is certain.  Prophecy is called a sure word and prophecy comes from God.  All of these ancient people recorded in Hebrews 11 from Able on had the hope of a messiah and lived in faith in this oath and the absolute certainty of its fulfillment.  But for those who say Jesus was a potential sinner imagine how this would have effected these ancient people.  How can anyone read the scriptures below and even for a minute think that Jesus Christ was a potential sinner and exactly like all men in every way who by good choices provided salvation to humanity. If true we would be saved by luck and not faith.

KJV Isaiah 42:1-4
 1.  Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
 2.  He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
 3.  A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
 4.  He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.


KJV Isaiah 42:6-7
 6.  I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
 7.  To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

KJV Isaiah 44:24-26
 24.  Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself;
 25.  That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish;
 26.  That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:

KJV Isaiah 49:5-7
 5.  And now, saith the Lord that formed me from the womb to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him, Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the Lord, and my God shall be my strength.
 6.  And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.
 7.  Thus saith the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One, to him whom man despiseth, to him whom the nation abhorreth, to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship, because of the Lord that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.

 

Abraham and David, who believed in the promised messiah and the oath God swore to them would have had their faith and hope crushed if they had been told that this messiah could possibly sin. This would have been doubt and doubt destroys faith.
