Faith In Action

Faith = Conviction or persuasion with corresponding actions.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Amplified Bible

11:1 NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

The word hupostasis , which we translate substance , signifies SUBSISTENCE, that which becomes a foundation for another thing to stand on.

Faith is the SUBSISTENCE(foundation for another thing to stand on). of things hoped for; - Not the ASSISTANCE

We do not see:

1) God

2) Heavens

3) Angels

4) The redeemed Glory

5) The crowns of Victory

6) The harps of Praise

But we have faith in them, and this leads us to act as if we saw them

By faith Abel offered a Sacrifice

Heb 11:4

By faith Abel brought God a better and more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, because of which it was testified of him that he was righteous [that he was upright and in right standing with God], and God bore witness by accepting and acknowledging his gifts. And though he died, yet [through the incident] he is still speaking.

By Faith Enoch was Translated

Enoch Lived 365 years and did not taste death but was taken away by God.

It is said, in Gen 5:24, that Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him. Here the apostle explains what God’s taking him means, by saying that he was translated that he should not see death; from which we learn that he did not die, and that God took him to a state of blessedness without obliging him to pass through death.

Heb 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Without confidence in God-in his fidelity, his truth, his wisdom, his promises

requires adoration and religious service from men; and that he blesses, and especially protects and saves, those who in simplicity and uprightness of heart seek and serve him. This requires faith, a faith by which we can please God; and now that we have an abundant revelation, a faith according to that revelation; a faith in God through Christ the great sin-offering,

Hebrews 11:7

By faith Noah, 1)being warned of God of things not seen as yet,2) moved with fear, prepared an 3)ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.



Hebrews 11:8

By faith Abraham, 1) when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, 2) Obeyed; and he 3)Went out, 4) not knowing whither he went.
