Faith is Based on Evidence

| March 28, 2013

My faith in God’s promises is based on evidence.
The word of God is substance
How do I know and believe?
The word of God creates unmovable faith
How do I get faith?
God made the first move

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Hebrews 11:3 Through 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.

Hebrews 11:4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent
sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous,
God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see
death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his
translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]:
for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a
rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as
yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the
which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which
is by faith.

Hebrews 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a
place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he
went out, not knowing whither he went.

Hebrews 11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as [in] a
strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs
with him of the same promise:

Hebrews 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose
builder and maker [is] God.

Hebrews 11:11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to
conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age,
because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Hebrews 11:12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as
dead, [so many] as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand
which is by the sea shore innumerable.

Hebrews 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the
promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of [them],
and embraced [them], and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims
on the earth.

Hebrews 11:14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they
seek a country.

Hebrews 11:15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that [country]
from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have

Hebrews 11:16 But now they desire a better [country], that is, an
heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he
hath prepared for them a city.

Hebrews 11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac:
and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten [son],

Hebrews 11:18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be

Hebrews 11:19 Accounting that God [was] able to raise [him] up, even
from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

Hebrews 11:20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things
to come.

Hebrews 11:21 By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the
sons of Joseph; and worshipped, [leaning] upon the top of his staff.

Hebrews 11:22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the
departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his

Hebrews 11:23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months
of his parents, because they saw [he was] a proper child; and they were
not afraid of the king’s commandment.

Hebrews 11:24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to
be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

Hebrews 11:25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of
God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

Hebrews 11:26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than
the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the

Hebrews 11:27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the
king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

Hebrews 11:28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling
of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

Hebrews 11:29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry
[land]: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

Hebrews 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they
were compassed about seven days.

Hebrews 11:31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that
believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.

Hebrews 11:32 And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me
to tell of Gedeon, and [of] Barak, and [of] Samson, and [of] Jephthae;
[of] David also, and Samuel, and [of] the prophets:

Hebrews 11:33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought
righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

Hebrews 11:34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the
sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned
to flight the armies of the aliens.

Hebrews 11:35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and
others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain
a better resurrection:

Hebrews 11:36 And others had trial of [cruel] mockings and
scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

Hebrews 11:37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted,
were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and
goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented;

Hebrews 11:38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in
deserts, and [in] mountains, and [in] dens and caves of the earth.

Hebrews 11:39 And these all, having obtained a good report through
faith, received not the promise:

Hebrews 11:40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they
without us should not be made perfect.

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so
great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin
which doth so easily beset [us], and let us run with patience the race
that is set before us,

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of [our]
faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of

About the Author ()

I am a radio minister in Evansville, Indiana with a passion for the preserved Word of God as found in the King James Bible. The words of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and His disciples are what all Christians are to obey and follow, not man's traditions, superstitions or doctrines of ungodly men. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." You have a choice to make, to believe HIs Word or to reject it, it's up to you. My purpose is to help you see the truth and connect with the Living God, your Heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
