What is Faith?

Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

There are many that tell us that humans were created by many things other than God. Some would say we were created by a cell, some would say a fish, other would say, no, by aliens, and some others would say by the big bang, and then again some would say, yes, but also by a computer and a tree or a monkey, no, but grass, and the list goes on and on. Man has been finding their ways throughout the centuries trying to come with their own line of faith. Man has been trying to theorize and capitalize on many theories that just down right mock God and his word. We know better than that or do we?

How can MAN know absolute truth when they have no absolute knowledge of how they got here on this speck of a world (in the galaxies that is how we look) because they chose not know the knowledge of God. How can they possibly know anything of real truth when they don’t have faith in God? Yes, many people can have faith in many things but it is best to know which is the right faith and if that faith is true. When I believed in the Lord God, I believed in his Son, God in the flesh, Jesus Christ, and what he did for all mankind and personally what he did for me. I believed the word of God by faith; I believed that the only way to God is through his Son, Jesus Christ. Once I did receive that TRUTH, Jesus Christ came to me and lived in me. Yes, all that I had faith in and believed in was and is confirmed by the Holy Spirit which is given to anyone who truly, truly believes that Jesus Christ is Lord.

All these theories and all these thoughts and all these made up notions that contradict the word of God is not from God, but were made up by man because of sin. How can we know these are lies because the Holy Spirit does confirm what is of God and what is not of God. We have to have discernment of these things because a great many deceptions come and lie wait to try to destroy every knowledge of God that he has given us, because these are the times that those deceptions may come. You and even I would have to really have faith, TRUE, unmovable faith and you and I also know that it only takes a mustard seed of faith. Just a mustard seed.

Now if some aliens were to come down from the second heaven (the galaxies) and tell some lies because they can, that they created humanity. If some other EXTRAterrestrial were to come down and say such lies. Well, as Christians, we would know that it says in Hebrews 11:3, that the things which we see were made by the things which do NOT appear. That means we were created by GOD and by no one or NOTHING else. That the worlds were created by the word of God because all he had to do was speak it and it would be and it is. The scriptures Hebrews 11:1 and 11:3 alone would contradict lies of any theory of man. That anyone OR anything were to say other wise than what is in the word of God isn’t some EXTRA anything but demonic and probably have some sort of evil attention. Anyone that knows the word of God should know these truths because it is through FAITH that we understand these things and the gift of the HOLY SPIRIT that confirms them.

I know this sounds a bit wild but you can’t be too careful how deep deception can really go. Already people are calling computer their gods. What anyone bring up and think up these days are just beyond incredible and even some theories that sound credible, but are lies from the pit itself. So what should we do then? What do we supposed to believe? What does the bible say? That God is the creator of all things. Not a cell, not a fish and not a monkey but God. Who is not a man that he should lie but a living spirit and that has powers beyond our own comprehension. Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” Colossians 1:16 “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:”

Can we please God without faith? Well, it says in Hebrews 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.” So, I guess the answer would be, no, we cannot please God without faith. How can we know God without having faith in God? How can we know any sort of truth because truth comes from God, if we don’t believe him? It is like believing in a matter that you in your heart don’t believe in because you don’t have the faith that it exists.

How can anyone please God without having faith that he is? It is impossible. A matter of a fact the whole Hebrews chapter 11 confirms that and brings evidence that all the great people (such as the prophets of God) who have ever lived that the word of God speaks of, had faith and they wouldn’t be who they were and did the things they had done without faith in God and his word. I recommend you to read the entire Hebrews chapter 11 to understand what faith really is and the whole Hebrews book that talk of many confirmations of many things in the old testament that the new testament confirms.

Overall, in summary, whatever that the word of God says is true because GOD said it. Anything or anyone that contradicts God’s word is not of God and does not know God. Anyone that is not of God and does not know God, does not know themselves and live in the world and of the world and by the world. If you are a TRUE follower of God, of Christ Jesus, then you would know what the word of God says. That God is the creator of all things and it is good to have faith in him and to trust in him and to seek him and to do HIS will. What else is there to say? Trust in God, believe in God, follow God, he only has the best for you.

God bless.
