People's Bible Notes for Hebrews 11:7


Heb 11:7 By faith Noah . . . moved with fear, prepared an ark. See Ge 6:13-22. When he was divinely warned of a coming deluge he believed it, simply upon the word of God. Now observe how his faith acted. (1) He was moved by fear; (2) he prepared the ark as God had directed. His faith moved him to obedience. By which he condemned the world. The example of his faith was a rebuke to all who were not moved by it. The man who gives heed to God by his conduct condemns those who refuse to heed him. And became heir of righteousness. It was by the obedience of faith that he became an heir of the blessings vouchsafed to those who are counted righteous through faith. See Ro 1:5,17.

    Yess!! This chapter just blessed my Entire soul and it open my eyes to what faith really is its not just saying God i trust you with a little of my situation its saying "God take full control and let YOUR will be done , all of you and none of me " Amen i truly hope this blesses someone as it did me.

    What is faith? That was my first thought on reading this chapter long ago. This is what the Holy Spirit showed me, it's a deep abiding conviction in God, a surrender to His will, and a change in conduct from a sinner to more than just a believer. The Hebrews Paul was talking to had become stagnant in their faith and walk with God. He was showing them the truth of deep commitment by those in past.
  • Issiah
    The Faith chapter. Who has faith to move mountains? To heal and resurrect. God the Father. To have faith is to have no doubt in spite of having no visible evidence. Better have a good lawyer. But look unto your composition. What are we. What animates us. Is it not spirit? Is God not spirit, unseen by flesh eyes but evident by the heart within. The Kingdom is within. And God is Reality
