The Real Faith - Kenneth E Hagin

The Real Faith - Kenneth E. Hagin

There are two kinds of truth: truth based on what God's Word says and sense-knowledge truth based on what our physical senses tell us. It is all right to walk by sense-knowledge truth as long as it does not contradict Bible truth. 

But living in the natural as we do, we get so accustomed to believing what the outward man tells us that it is difficult to switch over and walk by the truth given in God's Word.

The Bible contrasts two kinds of faith: a "Thomas faith" and an "Abraham faith." Abraham had a spiritual faith—a heart faith —which was based on what God said. Thomas had a natural, human faith. Everybody—saved and unsaved alike—has this natural, human kind of faith.

And now it is time to live in that lifestyle of Abraham faith. Where nothing seem impossible for you, never paying attention to the current situation but focusing on the promise of God.

Abraham believed according to what God said, not according to how he felt. He didn't believe his feelings; he didn't believe based on what he saw; he didn't believe his physical senses. His faith was based on God's promise. 

In modern-day vernacular we might say, "When God told Abraham he would become the father of many nations, even though Abraham and his wife were well past their child-bearing years, Abraham didn't even bat an eyelash. He knew there was nothing too hard for God: God could do anything. Therefore, Abraham was convinced that God could and would accomplish what He said He would." 

Abraham's blessing is ours as followers of Christ, we are told in Galatians 3:14: "That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. " 

........also, there are two kinds of unbelief. First, there is the kind of unbelief that is based on a lack of knowledge. 

The Bible says, "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Rom. 10:17). Those who have not heard cannot have knowledge; therefore, they can't believe.

The other kind of unbelief is mentioned in Hebrews 4:6, "... they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief. " This refers to the children of Israel. They could not plead innocence due to ignorance, because God had told them to go in and possess the land of Canaan. In addition, they had sent spies into Canaan, and the spies had returned with the report that it was a land flowing with milk and honey, just as God had said it was. 

Get going up, up where you have no more limits.


Learn it, grow your faith, live it as a lifestyle and never to back down in any situation.
