“By faith, Noah being divinely warned of things NOT yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark… and became heir of the righteousness, which is…[by] faith” (Heb 11:7, NKJV). “…Faith is the… conviction of things NOT seen” (Heb 11:1, NASB). Likewise, Abraham, when Isaac asked: “We have the fire and the wood, …but where is the sheep for the burnt offering?” [Abraham replied], “God will provide a sheep for the burnt offering…” (Gen 22:7-8, NLT). Such faith believes God and acts on His Word without wavering “…at the promise of God through unbelief…” (Rom 4:19-20, NKJV). Faith in God that leads to obedience is righteousness. “…Believe in… God and you will be established…” (2 Chron 20:20, NKJV). “It is God who enable us… to stand firm for Christ…” (2 Cor 1:21, NLT). “…But for those who reject Him, …He is the stone that makes people stumble..., because they do NOT obey God’s word…” (1 Pet 2:7-8, NLT). “Don’t… waste… time in endless discussions…, which don’t help people live a life of faith in God” (1 Tim 1:4, NLT), but rather “…believing… God…, [see His promise] from a distance and welcome it” (Heb 11:13, NLT). “…He who sat on the throne said, ‘…I make all things new.’ …These words are true and faithful” (Rev 21:5, NKJV).
