    Remember that we may not see the results of our faithfulness on this earth. His work through us is for his glory, not our credit. Our reward lies beyond the bonds of this world. Remain faithful to the word and the promises of God as he prepares a place for us.

    May we as believers walk in the faith of those saints that have gone before us. May Jesus Christ increase my faith to a greater faith for the Gospel of the King of kings. I pray that our Lord will cause the Holy Spirit to strengthen the faith of this generation as He has called us to do. May no circumstance overcome our faith, but quicken us by the very Word of God.

    how can it be that the women received their theads by ressurection.

    Twice I was healed of a horrible head. The first time, I prayed to Jesus to take away my head ache, I knew he would because I had a little faith in him and in the words Lord I believe help my unbelief. The headache quickly went away. The next time I had a headache, I kept praying Lord you have the keys of death and the grave take away my head ache, he took it away. Later, He healed my wrist too.

    Today is the start of a new phase in my life. And I am seeking the power of God by faith, to over turn the works of the enemy in my life and in the life of my family. Principalities and powers has taken over my home, my marriage, my children, my job, my finances, and my business. I am giving over everything to God to fight my battles for me and give me victory. Please join me in faith. Thanks

    What Hebrews 11 is saying to me is that you have to personally know and experience God's power at work, you don't just talk about what you believe it can do!
  • Lisa
    There seems to be a lot of people making comments about faith who just repeat what they have heard about what it means. Where are their personal testimonials about their application of faith? Faith in God's power at work . This is not the era for blind faith. When the Christ called to Peter to come, Peter boldly and without hesitation walked on water while his attention was focused on the

    Exodus 3:14 God said to Moses tell the children of Israel I AM sent you.

    As physical creatures it takes faith for us to believe in the things we can't see with our physical eyes. The more knowledge we take in of Jehovah God and the more we see his hand in our lives the deeper our faith will become.

    In response to John's comment on 3 10 2018, 7:44pm... In view of Jesus clear statement in John 3:13, Enoch was not taken to the heaven of God s residence. He died, as the apostle Paul, after naming Enoch and other ancient faithful witnesses of God, makes clear in saying: In faith all these died, although they did not get the fulfillment of the promises.............. Hebrews 11:13
  • David
    I am a kid and my name is not David, but I am a God fearing child and I love the lord and Hebrews 11 is a great chapter to read to remind yourself of Gods power and what he can do through people that follow him. If you have real faith God will use you and will work through you. and in hard times these verses can be a great help in seeing just how powerful my God is.

    Verse 8~This was a defining moment in Abraham's life and by his actions he showed that he had complete trust and faith in Jehovah God. His faith was rewarded by God.
  • BSP
    Verse 7~Noah had faith in the warning he received from Jehovah God that there was going to be a flood. His faith moved him to build an ark and this resulted in his life and his family's life being spared.

    Alex; why are you obsessed with things around copulation and pregnancy? Is that an unclean spirit masking behind religious talk? The carnal mind is enmity against God, and they that mind the things of the flesh cannot please God. While there are some validations in comparisons, it would be better for prudence' sake to keep such kind of talk to a minimum, especially in this age of non-restraint.
  • Alex
    When ya think about FAITH the substance of things hoped for th EVIDENCE of things NOT SEEN think about a PREGNANCY, GESTATION IN THE SPRITUAL REALM, UNTO US A CHILD IS BORN UNTO US A SON IS GIVEN. In the natural when a woman is pregnant she has the substance of THINGS HOPED FOR THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN,THATS Y THE NEW BIRTH IS SO IMPORTANT WE ARE GONNA BIRTH CHRIST IN OUR LIVES BY FAITH.
  • Alex
    When i was young i memorized the whole 11 th chapter of Hebrews,This is how i see it, Faith is like spritual PREGNANCY,She brought forth a man child THAT IS GONNA Rule All NATIONS. She had the substance of things hoped for ( TH FETUS ) THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN TH H.G. TH MANCHILD, My lil children of whom i travail in birth till CHRIST be formed in you,REAL FAITH RESULTS IN FRUIT Think SARAH

    George; "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Only someone who can't overcome his own pride and unbelief makes complicated entanglements of contentions about words to deny faith, while pretending to excuse himself. Without faith it is impossible to please Him! Our faith has made us whole! We are justified, counted righteous by God, because we believe!
  • George
    Both phrases, "things hoped for" and "things not seen" are participial and would more accurately be rendered, "things are being hoped for," "things are being seen." Faith is not the assurance to us, but the substantiation to God that we believe what we proclaim: "I'm hoping for...," "I'm seeing..." That's how the elders obtained good reports (from God), as He saw substantiation and evidence.

    John, the scriptures say v5Enoch did't experience physical death Elijah didn't either the only two men God was pleased to allow not to see physical death. The Good New Translation says he spent his life in fellowship with God and then he disappeared. 2 Ki. 2:11 says "And it came to pass..there appeared a chariot of fire.. and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. Both experienced a rapture.
  • John
    Thank you disciple that exactly the answer I needed, I do understand that they did not die but I just didn't have the words to explain it so simply. What I am up against is the watchtower society that they believe in, I have finally had a break through in where they saw the error in their NWT translation. I have been talking with them for years and the Lord has opened their mind to start questioni
  • John
    In Hebrews 11:5 Enoch was translated and did not see death but in ver. 13 it says all these died in faith. My question is how can he not see death but yet he had died. I need help to be able to explain this to someone I am studying with, my understanding is his flesh died but he spirit went straight to God instead of being at rest until Christ comes again. I pray for Godly wisdom and not man's

    The word 'faith' occurs only twice throughout the OT. Yet here is an entire chapter devoted to faith. Do this...take every OT reference, every example of faith, from Cain and Abel, to Noah, Abraham, all of them...and look them up in the OT, their proper context. You will finish that exercise with a bulked up faith that can move mountains. Faith grows, inexorably, as we read and study God's Word...

    Verse 19- Abraham realized that nothing was impossible for Jehovah God. God had revived his reproductive powers. Abraham was confident that whatever happened, his beloved son would be restored to him so that all of God’s promises could be fulfilled.
  • Will Virella
    Hebrews 11:3 (KJV) True 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.

    Does it mean we will have access to the Universe that God created?

    Thank you

    Bill; Happy New Year! I love Hebrews 11. The examples of faith teach us the very reality, like you said, "NOT an abstract!" So much is thrown at us; especially when we're new to the Bible; to make everything so complicated and mysterious, which the LORD actually gave us in the simplest and purest ways! Wouldn't you say, if we start with a wholesome simplicity of childlike faith it would be better?
  • Bill
    Faith is not an abstract belief in the word of God neither is it just giving mental assent and willing it to be so Faith is an operation of God , a devine illumination, a holy energy implanted in the believer by the word and the Holy Ghost...
  • CDS
    God I trust you with all my being, my faith in God is what keeps me sane, I lost a child by the hands of someone else and I forgave that person, because God has forgiven me and my life would mean nothing if my faith wasn't in God amen.

    Amen... God I thank you.

    To grow in faith is to walk with faithful people, when you can't trace him trust in him
