Simple Christian Words Necessary for Understanding Bible Faith

Faith – Faith is the word used to express that a person has heard God’s Living Word, Christ, and has opened their heart and received Christ, the Living Word into their heart. Rom 10:17, Ps 119:9, Heb 3:12-19.

Unbelief – Unbelief is the word used to express that a person has heard God’s Living Word, Christ, and has refused to receive Christ, the Living Word into their heart. Heb 3:12-19, and Heb 4:2.

Belief – Belief is the intellectual point when you know you have heard God’s Pure Word, and at that time you are responsible to choose to accept God’s Living Word, Christ, into your heart or reject His Word and refuse to accept His Word into your heart.  Belief comes first, then the choice to accept or reject is our choice.

Trust – Trust is do you have the confidence in God enough to accept God’s Word, even tho many times it may seem strange, like in 2 Chronicles 20 when God told Jehoshaphat to march out before three armies and watch the victory.  Do you trust God to help you lead a devotional or teach a class.

Hope – Hope it the desire for some future event: such as, a healing, job, protection, etc.

Victory – Victory represents the satisfaction of the hoped outcome or some other unexpected successful outcome.

All men do not have faith – Deut 32:20, Mark 4:40, 2 Thess 3:2  Only people who hear, accept and receive His Word in their heart have faith.  Christians are in unbelief when they hear God’s call to teach, preach or give a devotional and they reject His Word.  They are still Christians but for that area of their life they are in unbelief and will suffer for it.  People who hear and reject receiving His Word are in unbelief.   See my videos on faith.
