Now Faith Is

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of  the king’s commandment. By faith Moses, when he was grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a time; Esteeming the reproach of the Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he looked for the recompense of the reward.

By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king:

for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible.

Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest He that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

By faith they passed through the Red sea as on dry land: which the Egyptians attempting to do were drowned.

By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.”

Hebrews 11:1, 23-30

  2. Faith i so love this post!! it takes great courage to be totaly surrendered to have Gods faith to persevere through. when i think of the walls of jericho i smile with delight! a few years ago now i saw a documentary and they found those walls. the exciting thing is that they discovered the walls didnt crumble down. No, the earth opened up and the walls went down in solid form!! i tell you that is so exciting that my spirit turns summer saults!!! :)

  3. Yes He is!!!!! :) I am going to look and see if I can find that documentary. Like I said it has been years since I saw it but it has stuck to me like glue and is foundational of my God kind of faith!
