The Creator does not dwell where there is imperfection. That is why He gave you the gift of His righteousness:.Romans 5:17 "For if by one man's offence death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Emmanuel the Christ." Ephesians 2:4-6 "But God who is rich in mercy for his great love wherewith he loved us even when we were dead in sins, has quickened us together with Christ. By grace you are saved. And has raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Emmanuel.".So you must be as righteous as you can be in the Father's eyes, right!

Believing the gospel.(what 'gospel' means).gives one the power of the Creator. When you are righteous because of the finished work of Christ, this qualifies you for the power of the Creator, the power of the gospel, to work in your life and through your heart outward.

But often the human being just cannot believe. Why is that? Humans have free will to decide to not believe or to believe, which means to accept as true, whatever their attention may be on. Not believing is often due to having been led astray and allowing this direction, this blindness to rewards and consequences of decisions, so they just go along, accepting whatever comes in life. That is, many people just don't know enough to want to believe or even to decide against something. Most people don't even know themselves and have not convinced themselves of themselves or why they are here in the first place. Or, they may just not be interested enough one way or the other for something to matter to them. People don't believe something, because what their attention may be on at the time is not really important to them. We all need to come to see that we need to convince ourselves toward one way or the other about everything, because that's our individual lives. We need to be convinced about the truth of ourselves, what we are.(1, 2, 3), what truths do we hold to? Without knowing things along this line, we just drift along in life with an outlook like the ancient Roman god Janus.

So, how do you make someone believe? You don't. Why? But you can make a difference in their life without even meeting them.

As the power of God works in you, you grow in faith:.Romans 1:16,17 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ. For it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes; to the Jew first and also to the Greek.(what this means). For.therein is the righteousness.of God revealed from faith to faith. As it is written, The just shall live by faith."

One grows in faith through the knowledge of the Creator:.2Peter 3:18 "But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Emmanuel the Christ. To him be glory.(means in the original 'in Him is glory').both now and for ever. Amen."

Belief is the road leading to faith and faith is that which allows one to make higher consciousness decisions for his or her life. On the one side are love and faith and on the other, hate and greed or selfishness. Life presents us with two sides for a reason.

How is belief different from faith? Basically they are synonyms, however there is a subtle difference: Believe is 'to accept as true' and faithis having enough persuasion in mind that it's not your faith that counts, but Christ's. It's Christ's faith in you that takes your life forward in the good.

This explanation may help in understanding the difference.

This is the abiding faith, that is, Christ's faith abides with you and believing in Christ enables one to abide continually in His light, exemplified by the high consciousness ways of the Creator:.John 12:46 "I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believes on me should not abide in darkness."

Action to live out of one's beliefs with confidence comes from believing something to be true and that it can be relied upon. Beliefs being the basis for actions. So, one wants to be sure that his or her beliefs are based on truth, then he or she can walk forward in faith, that is, walk forward with confidence.

To put it another way: A belief is information you learned that you hold as being true. Faith has to do with action based upon belief. Faith is trusting your beliefs enough to take action upon them if you want to do so. A simple example: When you look at a road map to go to say, a festival in a country town that you haven't been to before, you have faith that the directions you believe that are on a map will take you to where you desire to go. Once you have been there, you no longer need the road map, depending on one's memory of course, Ha ha! and all that's needed is the decision to go to that town, because you remember that you believed the way you learned from the map will again hold true and take you there. So, you have faith and take action based upon your belief in the map's directions:.Galatians 3:25 "But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster."

Spiritual speaking, faith is the abiding assurance of the reality of the Creator in your heart. From here you have faith in makng decisions.(actions of the mind).because you are sure, you believe - that the action or actions contemplated is/are in alignment with high spiritual principles.

When you believe, you are accepting something as true or real after having been convinced of it. For example you believe a news story. Another news story you may not accept as true. You may believe one person and not another. You accept the expectation of something such as your relatives arriving for a visit from afar. You have confidence, or trust in someone to solve a problem. You are sure of the value of something such as free speech, or perhaps the quality of an item's manufacture, or the ability of the Creator to help and heal. So faith, living faith.(or, faith for daily living).is a being alive to what you presently hold as true; your beliefs. One's belief can change according to what his present attention may be on from time to time.

Faith evidences the unseen.(Hebrews 11:1), that something indeed is true in the invisible, that is, faith is the evidence of the invisible, that what is formed in the invisible must come into being, into the 'slowed down' frequencies that we can use our five senses to experience.

Faith links one to the Infinite One. If you have faith, you can be assured that your faith will be rewarded:.James 1:6-8; Faith is a spiritual thing. The understanding that all is spirit, that all we know is spirit and from spirit, things come into the physical, into the physical from that invisible realm all around us.

This is faith, this then is the confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of something. It's a thing of trust, a thing of being sure, of being convinced in mind of something spiritual, such as the goodness of the Creator in the land of the living.

Faith is a trusting acceptance of the Creator's will of goodness for you. Things of the Creator are indeed worthy of trust. But even though faith is a tool, a gift freely given to you.(Romans 12:3), it must be used to produce something.(Colossians 1:29), for God can only do for you what He can do through you:.Mark 6:3-6; Philippians 2:13.

And, thereby we increase in faith:.Luke 17:5; John 3:30,31; Ephesians 4:16; Colossians 2:19; 1Thessalonians 4:9,10; Galatians 5:6 "For in Emmanuel the Christ...faith works by love." 1Thessalonians 3:12 "And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another and toward all men, even as we do toward you." 

You may say 'I believe I'll have another beer'. This speaks to the sure availability of beer. You wouldn't normally say, I have faith I'll have another beer, unless there was scarcity of beer.

Trust is firm reliance on integrity, ability and character, your higher qualities. To most people belief impliestrust in something they wish to occur. To them belief is more of a wishing, like 'I believe I'll go on a holiday to the where there is more warmth from the Sun'. These types of 'beliefs', these wishings, give meaning to experiences we have daily, the more so we are confident of them occurring.

However, many peoples beliefs seem to be based on nothing but wishful assumptions. Beliefs are true if they are held to be true. Then they are true for the person holding those beliefs. Maybe not so for others. 

Beliefs can be judgmental by believing what is good and what is bad. This is a belief in separation, not realizing that good and evil are two sides of the same coin. Good to know the difference, but not so good to make your beliefs a means of accepting others or condeming them in your heart. Unfortunately, this kind of structure makes up most of humanity's belief base. And it's usually the good or bad 'for me' judgment used in acquiring more for self, even if it may be at the expense of another.

Belief is more of an acknowledging that something real has affected you; I believe a mosquito bit me. I believe it was the brakes failing that caused me to be unable to stop.

There is a difference between accepting ideas that put you at risk of being negative with someone and open mindedly using ideas that if tried, may provide beneficial:.Matthew 5:25 "Agree with your adversary quickly while you art in the way with him..."

You do not have to believe in that which is true, that which you know for certain. For example, you don't have to believe in electricity. You know it's there. Belief implies something we are not really sure of but hope will occur.

Beliefs.(the things we hold as true).are usually what we act from, and most of those beliefs are based on assumptions, many of which may not be true. For example, some people believe that the earth is flat, even today!

"If something is real, like electricity, you don't have to believe in it."....Deepak Chopra

We hold onto our beliefs, our ideas of what we have accepted as being valid. Every person has built their own view of existence and their place within it. Some of these beliefs people hold are helpful, but many are 'out to lunch' when one looks at them from a point of a better consciousness than the one producing them.

This confidence in living out one's beliefs comes from knowing that what we really are as human beings, that we understand our connection with what science calls the ether or the dark energy, dark because we can't see it.

This energy supports all we see and know. It is the giant universal 'computer' with its operating programs that are intelligently 'written' to do everything from the development of a baby to the migration of animals, to the healing of a cut and all else including the maintaining of the giant electrical engine that is the Universe.

One puts into actions what he has decided, convinced this will produce what he believes to be true. One also uses his beliefs in gauging his responses to others and the various circumstances of life. Often things just don't work out the way one believed that they would. One reason why.

Faith is sureness, sureness to the point of confidence in a stepping out knowing that the Infinite One is always with you:.Matthew 28:20; Hebrews 13:5. If you're not sure, wait until you are and get some guidance.

In things regarding the Creator, we know them to be true, because we trust Him, having proved Him to be true:.1Corinthians 13:12 "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face. Now I know.(original 'to become thoroughly acquainted with', 'to know thoroughly', 'to comprehend').in part, but then shall I know.(original 'be right upon what I knew' before in part).even.(original 'according as').as also I am known (original 'have known'; speaking of the faith he has that produced the effect he had in his mind)."

Example: trusting the Creator for the gift of eternal life and your reward for your actions here. Actions here should include getting to the higher consciousness where you can heal yourself, others and even resurrect others who have passed on:.Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.".Faith produces things, but patience is involved in the trying of faith in order to set character.

If your faith is not tried, how would you know how good it is and if you may need more of it. When one increases his love, faith, belief and the other qualities of love increase also.

If what is in your mind, you agree to be good for you.(thus, the importance of correct spiritual information), you have accepted it. It becomes you. When we 'accept' Christ, as religionists have said, we accept what Christ is, because nowhere in the Bible does it say to 'accept Christ as your personal savior'. This throws you off from truth and into religion. They mean 'accept Christ, because Christ is in the church, meaning the organization, building, doctrines, people, etc. The church is something else:.Hebrews 12:22,23.

What you accept, becomes part of what it is that comprises.you. Keep thinking that you are what the Creator says of you; after all, why not think from the truth? The Creator has created more creators. Learn why you are here. Ask yourself that question and keep asking it until you know:.Matthew 7:8 "For every one that asks receives and he that seeks finds and to him that knocks it shall be opened."

Believing the word of the Creator causes it to be effective in your experience:.1Thessalonians 2:13 "For this cause also thank we God without ceasing because when you received the word of God which you heard of us, you received it not as the word of men but as it is in truth, the word of God which.effectually works also in you that believe."
