The Bible and Faith

Faith is difficult to explain with just one definition.

#1. Faith is: complete trust or confidence in someone or something. Synonyms: trust; belief; confidence; conviction; optimism; hopefulness.
#2. Faith is a strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof. Synonyms: religion; church; sect; denomination; (religious) persuasion.
Someone else has come up with an abbreviation for FAITH:

F . . . Forsaking
A . . .All
I . . .  I
T . . . Take
H . . . Him

This is a good diagram to use when teaching about faith, but as with most definitions, it still comes up far short.

Many Bible students will stand by: Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (KJV)  

I think that a Bible definition of FAITH would be to take God at His Word. Yes, our faith is IN God . . . but very few properly know the God we should believe in or know HOW to believe in Him . . . unless we do to His Word, the Bible, and see what He tells us there. The apostle Paul gives some great advice: Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. KJV) . . . Until you hear or read the Word of God, you will not have FAITH to believe God nor to be saved.

FAITH is full confidence in God's Word. FAITH accepts God's Word (BOTH His Promises AND  His warnings) as FACT and acts as a result. Since there are many proofs that the Bible is true, this is NOT a blind leap of faith. As for me, I know it is TRUE because of the prophecies in the Old Testament . . . and then to SEE where those prophecies have been fulfilled! I will bring just one. This is absolutely amazing! Fulfilled to the letter! Joshua 6:26 written around 1380 B.C.  This prophecy exactly, precisely, completely accurately predicted:
#1. The city of Jericho would be rebuilt. Fulfilled!
#2. When the builder lays the new Jericho's foundations his oldest son would die. Fulfilled!
#3. When the builder sets up the city's gates his youngest son would die. Fulfilled.  

Joshua 6:26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the LORD, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it. (KJV)
1 Kings 16:34  In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun. (KJV)

This prophecy of Joshua alone, and its absolute fulfillment, is enough for me to have FAITH in the One and Only Awesome Triune God of the Universe!

There are the three parts of faith:

*****#1. Knowledge. Faith starts with information of what it is that should be believed. If someone knows that the Gospel of Jesus Christ refers to the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ according to the Scriptures (1 Cor.15:1-4) . . . they have knowledge. BUT . . . it is possible for someone to know WHAT the Gospel  . . . is without believing it is true. 

*****#2. Agree. SO . . . Knowledge is NOT enough! The person must also believe that the object of faith is true. In order to reach this level of faith, the person must know what the Gospel is (knowledge) and believe it to be true (agree with it). BUT . . . this is still NOT  enough for salvation. That takes us to the third aspect of faith.

*****#3. Trust. Trust refers to a personal commitment to and reliance upon the object of faith. In salvation, the sinner must know that Jesus died for him and rose again from the dead (knowledge) and he must accept that these facts are true (agree with). BUT . . . he is still not saved until he depends on (trusts) these facts as the foundation for his personal salvation.

Faith is a link in a chain. A chain has a link before it and a link after it. Biblical faith is not a magical belief in God and in other principles based on inner knowledge, personal revelations, or human reasoning. Biblical faith is not a leap in the dark. Biblical faith firmly stands on the Words of Almighty God. Any faith not based on the Word of God is NOT Biblical faith. See Saving Faith: http://www.godcannotlie.org/saving_faith.htm
