The reason for Faith~~~ Empty The reason for Faith~~~

Post  Admin Fri Jun 27, 2008 6:35 pm

Paul had to write a letter to the Jews, anonymously, to remind them that Faith was the belief-bedrock of their ancestor, Abraham.
Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the conviction of what we hope for, and the evidence of things NOT seen".
They had long since walked by "sight" (tangible, visible, physical, laws, 'signs', tongues, visions, dreams, water baptism, other rituals, etc.), not "faith" [intangible, invisible, spiritual, God's, hope & love].
The reason for faith [spirit] is to "walk" (live) by it, not "sight" [soul]!
When we have the indwelling Holy Spirit in our core, the soulish things (will, intelligence, emotions, feelings, mind, thoughts, conscience, heart, human spirit, etc., which are vulnerable to our old nature ["old man"] & satan's influence) are supplanted & given a lesser place in our lives so that we can live by faith, listening for the Holy Spirit to use the word of God written in our heart/spirit, in the "new man" [going inward: body>soul>H.S. indwelled new spirit-core].

Where the Holy Spirit indwells is the only place where we are not vulnerable to sin or demons; and that is the reason for faith.
Faith alone is the operative clause in a Christian's life these last 2,000 years!
"Faith" defined:>>>Hebrews 11:1 "To have faith is to be sure of what we hope for, to be certain of what we cannot see"!
~~~~If you can see it (outside or inside your head), it isn't faith~~~~
