Do you know?

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

Faith, what an incredible word. Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Not the hope of man that comes out of the abundance of his worldly desires. Faith is a foundation, its a complete reliance upon the the Word of God whether written or spoken. Jesus told us that He was the Son of the Living God. Peter believed it, we believe it. Not in our heads but in the very depths of our hearts. The world tells us to put our money where our mouths are. They mean to say ” show us how much you believe in something.” Jesus says that if a man tries to save his life he loses it, but if he loses his life for the sake of the King of Kings then that man has put his life where his mouth is.

That is how much he believes it. With everything that is in him. Whether in riches or in poverty, whether in sickness or in health whether clothed or naked, hungry or full, it matters not for we have cast our all upon the altar of God. That right there destroys the so called word of faith movement. It utterly shatters the health and wealth movement. True faith, like the love between one man and one woman, is for ever, no matter what comes our way. What God has joined together, our hearts with His, let nothing separate it. Job, having lost everything and sitting atop a pile of broken pottery scraping the boils that covered his whole body refused to give up on his God, would not curse him. He says that even if God slays him, yet will he trust him.

Trust, faith, belief. The Holy Spirit has given His saints a love of the truth. The things that we hope for are eternal. The things that we hope for, the desires of our hearts are His hope and His desires, that is why we know. This knowing that has been given to us, is the evidence of the things to come. The evidence of things not seen, that sentence absolutely runs counter to everything man is and knows. There in enmity between the heads of men and the hearts of the saints and never the twain can meet. There is a vast gulf between the two and it is impassable. One reasoning belongs to the world, what they can see, and the other “knowing,” belongs to the Kingdom. Do you know?

    Dear Sue,

    This is today’s post, I’m not sure if you read it…

    Trevor spoke on Hebrew’s 11: 13-16 on Sunday. I thought of Rob seeking his ‘homeland’ where he is now with his Lord .

    Love in Christ,

    Sarah xx
