What Is Faith?

Who has ascended up into heaven, and descended?… Who has established all the ends of the earth?* What is his name*, and what is his son’s name, if you know? Proverbs 30:4 (WEB).

Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (WEB).

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known of God is revealed in them, for God revealed it to them. 20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse. Romans 1:18-20 (WEB).

By faith, we understand that the universe has been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible. Hebrews 11:3 (WEB).

Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6 (WEB).

By faith, Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he had testimony given to him that he was righteous, God bearing witness…​ Hebrews 11:4 (WEB).

By faith, Enoch was taken away, so that he wouldn’t see death,…​ For he has had testimony given to him that before his translation he had been well pleasing to God. Hebrews 11:5 (WEB).

By faith, Noah,…​ moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his house, through which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. Hebrews 11:7 (WEB).

By faith, Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which he was to receive for an inheritance…​ not knowing where he went. 9 By faith, he lived as an alien in the land of promise, as in a land not his own, dwelling in tents, with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise. Hebrews 11:8,9 (WEB).
