Is it possible that we don't know what FAITH IS; and is it possible that we don't know the difference BETWEEN FAITH AND BELIEF? Have our Churches, Faith teachings, word of Faith teachings and religious Faith movements failed in their Preaching and Teaching (or LACK THEREOF)? GOD gives us FAITH (Hebrews 11:6; Romans 12:3). FAITH comes from hearing the Message and the Message is GOD'S WORD (ROMANS:17). FAITH is information we get from GOD to act upon. FAITH is our "unreserved confidence" in the DIVINE EVIDENCE of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). We no longer "lean upon our own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5), FAITH is our complete assurance in the Promises of GOD. BELIEF is acting upon our FAITH. BELIEF is "acting upon the INFORMATION GOD has spoken to us". BELIEF is acting upon SPIRITUAL TRUTH. FAITH changes nothing except our RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. BELIEF is ACTING upon that RELATIONSHIP. FAITH EQUALS CONFIDENCE IN THE PROMISES OF GOD; BELIEF IS ACTING UPON THAT FAITH.
