Faith is so important:.Matthew 9:29 "...According to your faith.(meaning, the faith you have because, faith comes from Christ to you; doesn't mean that.you.generate it in certain amounts, rather, you allow it into you through acceptance of the invisible realities, in this case, the invisible reality being Christ; this acceptance is called belief and each person has his or her own belief amount:.Mark 9:24).be it unto you." 2Corinthians 1:24 ".....for by faith you stand.(showing the importance of this faith to us; original for 'stand' is 'established' or set up or bring your life about, make your life what it is).".Stand in what? Faith in what? What is faith? How did you get faith?

Believing is of a set of precepts one has accepted, like you have a box and you put slips of paper in the box, each slip having a different belief on it from the higher consciousness attributes., that is, you believe they make a difference and that's why they were important enough to put them on paper and save them in a box. Think of the box as being labeled My Faith because it contains the things reminding you of what supports your faith, reminds you that those things in which your trust are sound. So, faith then is one's beliefs that are used as a basis for action. An analogy may help: 'like you know your vehicle's parts are in good working order.(the beliefs in the box).and therefore you can take action by going on a trip in assurance.(faith).all will be ok to get you there and back again without problems. Your faith is based upon the beliefs in the box being ok.

Your storehouse of beliefs is used as you travel the journey of life in assurance your beliefs work, that is, that they produce something and that something is higher consciousness. That's how you can monitor the effects of your believing.

Many people believe in things that aren't providing what they had expected. So, their beliefs need attuning. Like a radio, they need to switch off the station that is not on track and so provides garbled information and instead switch to a station that broadcasts frequencies that do more for them.

Living a life of faith.(Romans 9:32).is living a happy life, a life where you don't feel condemned at every turn:.John 3:17 "For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved.".Faith is shown by confidence in Christ.(learn what Christ is).and this shows that your life is on the right track:.Romans 14:22 "Have you faith? have it to yourself before God. Happy is he that condemns not himself in that thing which he allows."

An underlying quaity of faith is trust. We have confidence in those we know have been and still are, on our side, those who are out for the good for us.

Faith is having been persuaded toward that which is true and good. What's good? And what's true and good is that the faith of Christ has all things for us:.1Corinthians 3:21. Faith is doing things because you believe in them and you believe in them because you're sure they have benefit to you in some way. One can have the faith of God and do good and one can have the faith of the dark side and do evil. The false faith of the dark side brings results too, for example, with either of these faith directions one will reap what they have sown.

What one may add to what he or she already knows to be true, such as, in Christ are all things for us. What may be true to you may not be believed by another person; examples. Be open-minded but don't allow someone else to rule over your belief structure based on the truth of Christ.

It wasn't by your works that you got any faith:.Ephesians 2:8,9 "For by grace are you saved through faith.(who's faith?).and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast." 2Peter 1:1 "Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Emmanuel.Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Emmanuel Christ." Romans 9:11 "...the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calls.".Note it says this faith is precious and that it is obtained through the righteousness of God, that is, one needs to know something and that something is, that the one desiring to have this faith knows it comes not as a result of his own righteousness. Rather it's a gift of God to him:.Romans 5:17,18. It's a spiritual gift because God loves him:.2Peter 1:3.4.

Faith is a bank of beliefs in Christ, but what are beliefs and how did we get them and really how good is our faith? Both the Old and New Testaments showed it was only a few who had ability from God to do miracles. We lack the faith to do supernatural things and bring things to us we may want or need. But Christ doesn't and so we look to His faith, because in Christ are all things for us:.1Corinthians 3:21.

Faith also can be likened to a person's underlying.state of confidence, where he or she is free from concerns, worries and resentments over past actions, both those done by someone else to him or her or actions he or she may have done to others. How can you have any further concerns if you have done your best to ameliorate them and have now left them in the hands of God? Any and all guilt over them has been nailed to Christ on the cross. 

The difference between concerns and interests is as concerns have just been explained and, interests are about how you would now have your affairs done right, that is, not to again cause.similar.situations to occur. Concerns, worries and resentments erode confidence.

Faith is the ability the Creator gave you to accept what He believes about you, thanks to Christ. When God says he loves and cares for you, do you accept that?

Faith is conviction; that is, being sure that what you have accepted is true. But how can you 'just know that'?

You have faith that if you take a certain direction you will arrive at the grocery store. You are absolutely sure about this: example:.Romans 4:18-21. Faith is sure knowledge you carry around with you and with which decisions are made in living and regulating your life. If it's based on Christ's faith, then there is power to it. Generating your own faith is a waste of time, for there is no substance to it:.John 15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches. He that abides in me and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit, for without me you can do nothing."

How can one know if he or she has faith? Faith is that something, that spiritual quality which enables one to keep going, even when there seems like there is no hope, because you know this:.Romans 8:28.

Faith is that which enables a person to see something better than the present situation he or she may be in:.Galatians 2:20 "...Christ lives in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God who loves me..."

Faith is that spiritual quality which underlies one's daily life. It's the activity of the Creator's consciousness in a person. Faith is a gift:.Ephesians 2:8. You can ask for gifts: Matthew 7:7-11. It takes love to activate faith:.Galatians 5:6. Decide to love in your life.

Faith is in everyone's life, that is, everyone operates their life on the degree of faith that they have, in something:.Luke 18:8

Having faith is being persuaded of that upon which you base actions. A thief has faith he will not be caught. Problem here is, his faith is not based on the laws of love of the universe:.Mark 11:22 "And Emmanuel answering said unto them, Have faith in God."

Faith is that invisible spiritual quality of just knowing. If you can't make your mind up on something that you may be in a quandary about, avoid forcing a decision you may feel pressured about making. Instead just be aware that you'll know what to do when you have to do it and go forth in your life with that in mind. That's faith.

Faith is an invisible quality which comprises a structure, an invisible structure from which we act as we do according to what's in the structure and what's in the structure is the beliefs we hold, the things we have accepted as being true for us. What's in the structure is there because of our acceptance of things.

Believers are a class of persons:.John 3:15-18; Acts 5:14.
Faith is in general the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true:.2Thessalonians 2:13 "But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth."

Faith's primary idea is trust. Faith is the result of teaching:.Romans 10:14-17. Knowledge is an essential element in faith.

Faith is state of mind awakened to and basking in higher consciousness. It's is a state of awareness, knowing that you are in Christ. What does that mean?

The faith of Christ draws us toward a higher consciousness. 

Your beliefs are based upon the faith you have. You have faith you are able to climb a high hill, 'I know I can do it':.Philippians 4:13. Taking action to do so is belief based upon the faith you have in your climbing ability, 'I'll climb the hill now'. Belief is what allows you to take action based upon the faith you possess. Belief is faith in action. The action you took in climbing the hill was based upon the sure knowledge you held.

Believing/belief is placing trust in something you plan to take action on, like 'I believe I'll have another beer'; 'we believe we'll arrive there in the afternoon if we leave early enough in the morning'.

Faith in the Creator is being convinced of the efficacy of things of the Creator; that they indeed, produce a positive result:.Romans 8:28.

What are those things of the Creator if not the things of His character and the things that you are concerned about, for He is in you if you care about the things of God. That's how you put yourself in alignment with Him.

Faith is knowing you have conviction about something. Faith is knowing results or seeing, a being sure of, each point in your consciousness that you want to occur:.Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance.(a real thing).of things hoped for, the evidence.(if you have faith, you can be sure).of things not seen.".Faith is a firm belief or a course of action. You don't act upon that which you are unsure about.

With faith you can step out knowing the outcome will be good: Romans 8:28. Albeit, after going through many valleys and even ruts.(remember the.Lord Of The Rings.movies).on your journey to the object of your quest:.Hebrews 11:1; Galatians 2:20.

Faith is regarding that in which you have confidence, those things you are sure about. But faith without works is dead. What good is it not to go to the grocery store you are sure is still there?.James 2:14 "...can faith save him?"

You can have total confidence that your Creator not only hears you, but will respond. No matter how bad your children might have been, if they need help, you always love them enough to assist them in improving. Can we not expect the same from our Creator:.Matthew 7:11. If you are asking for that which is according to His will; and what's that?:.Matthew 7:12. And what is it that you should do to have confidence that you are consistently in the will of God?

What did Emmanuel think?.Mark 11:22 "And Emmanuel answering said unto them, Have faith in God."

Faith is direction of heart toward trusting the Creator. Faith is sureness of belief; belief being information that is based on truth and belief being the foundation for actions one may take in confidence he is correct; correct being, not causing any harm in any manner to others:.Romans 13:10. That's faith, which is the direction extending from your beliefs and the action taken thereby:.Hebrews 11:6. So, stay on the pathway of faith in your daily life:.1Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be you stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." Hebrews 3:6,14 "But Christ as a son over his own house, whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end."

Faith relays its spiritual quality through insight of the meaning of the word the 'Creator', intended for our understanding, so change could be effected in our lives. Faith is the door that allows the goodness of the Creator into your life.

Faith is knowing the power of the Creator, the Lord - the Good Spirit we often refer to as God,.is working in you: 1John 5:19. It's a looking for an increase of the Infinite Presence in you. No looky no findy! You get what you seek:.Matthew 7:7. The Creator can't do for you what He can't do in you:.1Corinthians 3:7-9; Matthew 9:29.

Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.".Not seen means it's a spiritual thing, something beyond the 'slowed down' energy of spirit things that we label as physical:.Colossians 1:15 "Who is the image of the invisible God...".True love is also a thing of the spirit.

Romans 10:8 "...The word is near you, even in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the word of faith, which we preach."

Jude 1:3 "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that you should earnestly contend.(how? work through the errors you have caused that have hurt you and others; it's your sincere efforts that count -.one is).for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."

Faith is many aspects of awareness of a presence with you - your Soul and how deep you sense it being one with all there is and ever will be. In this oneness you are secure. Here, when you know that you know what it is that you want for good for you and for others, it must come for sure and sometime. Why sometime? Faith is all the evidence you need. The workings of how are worked out for you in the invisible.

A person of faith will be seeking where the faith is leading him.

You live in the body and see through it at the same time. You are the observer of your life.

"You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith."....Mary Manin Morrissey.

"Faith is expressed in the higher state of consciousness. Faith is the vehicle that takes you into the soul level, the knowing that a deeper reality is dawning. The moment of faith is when nothing seems to work."....Deepak Chopra. That's because that's the moment the unknown opens up.

Faith is believing that the original patterns work as designed; e.g. the development of a baby and the giant electrical engine that is the universe.

Like in all spiritual things there are many levels:.John 14:2. Faith increases as one grows in the things of higher consciousness, which are the things of love: Romans 12:6; 2Corinthians 10:15.

You can equate faith with fire and enthusiasm..life!.Faith comes from the decision to embrace the future with confidence:.Acts 17:28.

As opposed to a mundane daily existence, one now looks onward to an exciting never ending surety. One is now curious about life, alert to its possibilities, confident that whatever passion from high consciousness that you decide upon is possible. That is how to know if you have faith.

What about what's called belief?

In what is called the Kingdom of God, it will be much easier to have this thing called faith because more men and women will be spiritually inclined.

What if you do not have it? It is a gift and you can get it! You need it to build you up:.Acts 20:32 ".....grace, which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.(other spiritual persons in the family of God)."

The biggest killer of faith is impatience, not depression. And this impatience is due to programming that demands you must know 'all the answers' before venturing forth. This causes frustration. Lack of patience always does this.

Do not trust until you know is in in contradiction to the wisdom of the ancients who knew that to have spiritual things of the mind effective, one must first trust.

Wanting to take things into our own hands, your own control, wanting to 'jump right in' to something you can control, is an open invitation to trouble.

Once one knows what his deep heart's dreams are.(how), then risk it to attain them. Better to be a bit patient and wait to see what God is doing. If you're not sure what He is doing, don't take action. But to know if you are 'in His will'.."There is no action without inspiration."....Bernie Siegel, M.D., featured in the award winning movie What If? The Movie. Once on the path of action engage in activities that contribute to spiritual growth; activities based on love.

Many people have more faith than they give themselves credit for. Who cooks your meals? Without faith you wouldn't even eat stew. 

Faith is important! If you have it, it is counted to you for righteousness:.Romans 4:3. With faith one is able to bring for the things of what the Creator calls, a righteous life:.Hebrews 11:33 "Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.".The gift of the Holy Spirit.(the spirit of wholeness {holy or wholly, meaning completely high consciousness} in higher consciousness concerns).is by faith:.Galatians 3:14. You 'get' things from God by being sure that you already have them. Chew on that one awhile.

Faith can save you from many troubles and afflictions:.Matthew 9:18-22; 15:28; Mark 5:25-43; 10:46-52; 11:19-24; Luke 7:50; 17:14-19; 18:42; Ephesians 2:8.

One obtains faith by Christ's righteousness even if sin is still hanging around in his life.

Without faith God is not pleased:.Hebrews 11:5,6. The faith we have.(thanks to God's gift of it to us that we can accept by desiring to live higher consciousness ways).pleases Him. In other words, His concern is that we do indeed have faith:.Hebrews 11:1. And from where comes this faith?

Micah 6:6-8 "Wherewith shall I come before the LORD and bow myself before the high God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? He has showed you, O man, what is good and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God?".Learn to do good. How to do good.

Once a person's mind has been opened by the Creator, one can increase faith.(by bringing out more of what is already there).by thinking of Himself as is thought of him by his Creator:.2Peter 1:1 ".....to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Emmanuel the Christ.".Why 'and our saviour'?.John 14:6.

The Great Infinite One is pleased when we are healthy and prosperous.(3John 1:2), when we do good and are generous.(Hebrews 13:16), when we increase in the power that He made available for us:.Galatians 1:10 "For do I now persuade.(for 'persuade', click on reference).men, or God? or do I seek to please men?.(for 'please men', click on reference).for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ."

Hebrews the 11th chapter shows that faith enables one to make choices to do things that without faith, he wouldn't. It also shows that the Creator does things when we have faith. 

Hebrews 12:1 paraphrased:.'Wherefore seeing we have these examples of such a great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside anything that may cause us to consistently miss the mark in the struggle to keep the faith of Emmanuel uppermost in our hearts.'

The Creator controls absolutely everything.

To know if you have faith one must know first what it is. 

Faith is an acceptance of something as true.(1Peter 1:8), a trusting of God with your life, that it can be based upon His promises.

Living faith is using what you have accepted as true in your life. If you ask for directions from someone to reach a destination, you choose whether or not to have faith in his instructions or not. If you accept them as true, you may decide to follow the instructions that he gave you to proceed to the destination. This then is living faith; faith upon which actions are taken. 

From Easton's Bible Dictionary:."Faith is, in general, the persuasion of the mind that a certain statement is true: Philippians 1:27; 2Thessalonians. 2:13. Its primaryidea is trust.

"A thing is true and therefore worthy of trust. It admits of many degrees up to full assurance of faith, in accordance with the evidence on which it rests. 

"Faith is the result of teaching, of learning:.Romans 10:14-17. Knowledge is an essential element in all faith and is sometimes spoken of as an equivalent to faith:.John 10:38; 1John 2:3. Yet the two are distinguished in this respect; that faith includes in it assent, which is an act of the will.(a decision to agree and accept).in addition to the act of the understanding.(a realization of the meaning of something)."

Regarding Christian faith, it is accepting Emmanuel Christ's life as true. To do this, one must personally know some things about Him that is meaningfully important. If you have faith in Christ, you obviously have accepted the fact as true that He indeed did rise from the dead:.1Corinthians 15:14

A few things to know about faith:

#1: Faith is had by knowing that you are righteous:.2Peter 1:1; Romans 4:13. Creator knows He is righteous and if you have become a spiritual person, this is also true of you, for you are equal to the Creator and a creator too:.Phillipians 2:5,6.

The words of the Creator must be accepted as true for them to become effective in life and produce any fruit:.Hebrews 4:2; Philemon 1:6; 1Thessalonians 2:13; Colossians 3:16; Philippians 2:5. Our confidence must be in Christ.(Philippians 1:6), not in a defunct.law, in order for spiritual change to occur in our lives. If one is in two minds about things, he is in doubt. And what does being 'in Christ' mean?

#2: Faith is needed for those wanting to live in a manner pleasing to God, the Universal Intelligence.(Hebrews 11:6).and for having access to this Creator:.Ephesians 3:12. It is seeing the outcome in the imagination with a sureness that what is in the mind is more 'real' that what it is that we see daily with our eyes. This is because everything that is and all sustaining of that which we see and know of, comes out of invisible intelligent energy, that we most often call God or the Creator.

#3: It takes faith to learn about salvation.(2Timothy 3:15).and to hold fast.(keep uppermost).the words of the Creator in one's heart:.2Timothy 1:13.

#4: Faith involves believing in Christ; that He made possible personal resurrection into eternal life now:.2Timothy 2:18.

#5: Faith far supersedes the righteousness of the Mosaic Law including the ten commandments:.2Corinthians 5:7; Romans 7:6.

#6: Faith makes us want to share.(1Thessalonians 1:8).the great message of the gospel about those who come to believe in Christ can have a relationship with the Father and have no fear of rejection even if they still sin..That is.how much God loves you. In Christ we are one with God through our individual souls:.Philippians 2:5,6; Ephesians 2:14.
