The anointed cherub = Morning Star ( Psalm 110:3 & Isaiah 14:12 Latin Vulgate )
Jesus = Morning Star ( Revelation 22:16)
Obviously, the title " Morning Star" of Jesus and the anointed cherub are same but not same in sense for Jesus is such because he is very God who is "Light from Light" (1 John 1:5, John 8:12,42) while anointed cherub is such because he is a created being, the most beautiful among his fellows (Isaiah 14).
Satan = theos ( 2 Corinthians 4:4)
Jesus = theos ( John 1:1)
Obviously, the title " theos" of Jesus and Satan are same but not same in sense for Jesus is "God" because he is true God ( 1 John 5:20) while Satan is a "god" because he has authority over the world ( Matthew 4:9, Galatians 1:4).
faith alone = saved by grace through faith NOT of works ( Ephesians 2:8-9)
faith alone = justified by faith APART from works ( Romans 8:28)
NOT saved & justified by faith alone ( James 2:14,24)
Obviously, there are two sorts of "faith alone" in the Holy Scriptures:
1) Faith alone that saves & justifies.
Notice that the focus is on salvation out from the WRATH of God:
Romans 5:9 + 3:28 saved from the wrath by the blood of Jesus
Ephesians 2:3 &14 + 2:8-9 children of wrath = brought near to God by the blood of Jesus
Also notice that the focus is on the WORKS OF THE LAW:
It is impossible to obey all the Law:
For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, IT CANNOT (Romans 8:7).
For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in ONE point, he has become guilty OF ALL (James 2:10).
This Law includes the 10 commandments:
who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, NOT of the letter BUT of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.Now if the ministry of DEATH, CARVED IN LETTERS ON STONE, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at Moses’ face because of its glory, which was being brought to an end (2 Corinthians 3:6-7).
Question: What is the Law, then?
Answer: Paul himself asked and answered this question.
Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary.Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one. Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law. 22 But the Scripture imprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.Now BEFORE FAITH CAME, WE WERE HELD CAPTIVE UNDER THE LAW, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed So then, THE LAW WAS OUR GUARDIAN until Christ came, [ why?] IN ORDER THAT WE MIGHT BE JUSTIFIED BY FAITH. But now that faith has come, we are NO LONGER under a guardian (Galatians 3:19-25).
2) Faith alone that does not save and justify.
Notice that the focus is on SHOWING real faith and COMPLETING of it BY WORKS:
James 2:18 I will SHOW you my faith by my works.
James 2:22 You see that faith was working with his works, and as a result of the works, faith was COMPLETED.
How is faith completed ? Is faith alone lacking?
Faith is completed by works because if it lacks works then it is the same as " a body without a spirit", that is, dead or useless.
"Just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is DEAD" ( James 2:26)
"But are you willing to recognize, you foolish fellow, that faith without works is USELESS?" ( James 2:20)
Also notice that the focus is on the WORKS FROM LOVE:
What good is it, my brothers, if someone "SAYS" he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? ( James 2:14).
If a BROTHER OR SISTER ( Brethren) is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you “SAYS” to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? ( James 2:15).
John agrees with James for is expressing the same thing in his epistle:
By this we know LOVE, that he laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers. But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does GOD'S LOVE abide in him? Little children, LET US "NOT" LOVE IN "WORD" OR "TALK" BUT IN DEED AND IN TRUTH ( 1 John 3:16-18).
Paul also agrees with James and John:
In Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but FAITH WORKING THROUGH CHARITY ( Galatians 5:6).
Yes. It is not from the Law but from faith working through charity (or love):
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; AGAINST SUCH THINGS THERE IS NO LAW Galatians 5:22-23).
Romans 3:28 declared holy (to God) by faith apart from works [ of the Law] i.e. faith alone.
James 2:28 declared holy ( to brethren) by works [ from faith - specifically the faith that is "apart from works" in Romans 3:28].
To justify means to declare a person as holy.
