Having the same spirit of faith, as it is written, I believed, and therefore I spoke; we also believe, and that is why we speak (2 Corinthians 4:13).
What a beautiful and inspiring description we have in Hebrews 11 of those in the Faith Hall of Fame. The Bible says that these men and women tamed and framed their worlds, their times, by faith. Abel's offering to God, for example, was an act of faith: * "By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained the testimony that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: dead still speaks ”(Hebrews 11: 4).
Abel was not doing a ceremony with his mouth closed, no! He said some things, such as even in death his blood still speaks. What exactly was his admission? It certainly would have been in line with what the other Patriarchs confessed. The Bible says that they confessed that they were strangers in the world: "These all died in the faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them from afar, and were persuaded to 'them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth ”(Hebrews 11:13).
The main thing is that they spoke words of faith. Who learn how they created and built their time. They talked about their future; they said what was going to happen, and did everything they did, by faith. It is the same spirit of faith at work in us today. We believe, and therefore speak.
Faith is the name of believing; to believe is a verb. Your faith is demonstrated by words that prompt you to action. You cannot believe and shut up. Even in the negative realm - the satanic realm - they use the same principle because it is a spiritual principle. If they don't say it, they know it won't happen.
Isn't that what Jesus said in Mark 11:23? He said you will get what you say: the sea; and will not doubt in his heart, but will believe that the things he says will come to pass; he will have whatever he says. »* Declare filled with faith
