    Without faith we cannot please God, actually it says 'it 's impossible, faith is a currency of the Kingdom, again it says 'deligently ' seek Him, we cannot be casual about seeking God, we should do it with deligence, good, things of value will not be found by scratching the surface, diamonds and precious stones are deep deep in the mine and are dug with specialised tools, the Word of God, faith and the Word are inseparable.Let us soar into the deep, let us be deligent in seeking God.

THANK YOU FATHER HALLELUJAH.
  • I believe that we can only have faith in God if we know Him because how can we trust/believe/have confidence in anyone and we don't know them? the key to having faith is building a personal relationship with God and getting to know Him through the Bible/the Holy Spirit/the five fold ministry/your own personal experiences with Him.
  • Kreshnik on Hebrews 11:6
    In the Hebrew 11:6 the key word is Faith. And the bible is full of examples of faith in the Lord, For example in Genesis 22 God ask Abraham to do something for him And that action needed a lot of faith. For our own understanding that was a foolishness, but God often use some test in our lives to test us if we really believe on Him.
    And that are a lot of other examples of faith that are mention in Hebrew 11
