If – Si – Ean – Indien – So - Ha If ye continue. . . If we hold fast. . . If any man will come after me. . . If any man have ears to hear. . . If need be. . . The word, IF, in any language, is able to convey assurance to the child of God. The believer discovers a godly boldness and confidence, assurance, as they continue in the things of God. 1 Peter 1:5 (KJV) Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Ref: 1Pet 1:3-9; 2Pet 3:11-18 So often the phrase that starts with an IF is portrayed as negative, fostering doubt. That need not be, for the word if, in any language, is able to convey assurance to the child of God.
