Faith is a Revelation , a Substance

65 But to the church, the Bride, the rapture is a revelation to her. It's revealed to her, that the revelation, the true Bride of Christ will be waiting for that revelation of the rapture.
Now, it is a revelation, for the revelation is faith. You cannot have a revelation without it being faith. Faith is a revelation, because it's something that's revealed to you. Faith is a revelation. Faith is something that has been revealed to you like it was to Abraham, that could call anything contrary to what had been revealed to him as though it wasn't so. Now, faith... That's what faith is, is the revelation of God. The church is built upon a revelation, the whole entire body.

24-1 What is a--what is a revelation? Jesus said, "Upon this Rock I'll build My church, and the gates of hell can't prevail against it." Faith is a revelation, because faith has been revealed to you. Abel, by faith offered by revelation (faith) offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than that of Cain.
Cain thought they eat apples. They still got that idea, but it wasn't. It was adultery: serpent's seed. And there, when the Seven Seals opened, it declared it and proved it. (My book's just out on it. I think we have got a thousand here now. See?) Notice, that's Scripturally from Genesis to Revelations. At the end-time both trees are coming to the seed and proving themselves.


105 Now, "faith" is a "revelation from God." Now, "faith" is a "revelation." There's where I want to stay there just a moment. It's a revelation. He has revealed it to you by His grace. It's nothing you did. You didn't work yourself up into faith. You never had faith; it's give to you by the grace of God. And God reveals it to you; therefore, faith is a revelation. And the whole Church of God is built upon the revelation.

53 You said, "It wasn't a revelation." What is faith? Faith is something that's revealed to you, that is not yet, but you believe it will be. Faith is a revelation of the will of God. So by revelation...
And the churches today don't even believe in spiritual revelation. They believe in a dogmatic teaching of some system. "By revelation Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than that of Cain, which God testified he was righteous." Amen. I hope you see that. See where we're living, see the hour?

56 Turn to Genesis 22 now. I'm going to read some for the lesson before prayer service. All right, we're going to start along about the... Let's just talk of it a little bit.
I'll tell you what we'll do. I want you to get in Romans 4 also. I'm going to teach a little about faith. That's what we all need a whole lot of, isn't it? Faith is not a--is not an evidence; only it's a substance... Faith itself is a substance and an evidence of things that the senses of the body won't declare. And I thought, maybe, in teaching this, would--would spur your faith up (See?), get it to a level to where that God can move into you and bless you.

E-54 How would you ever know you touched Him, if there wasn't something the come back and told you? See, faith is not something that... It's not a myth. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence that something's happened of things not seen. It's not just--just a make belief, and say, "Well, oh, yes. Hallelujah, I got it." That's been too much in you Pentecostal people to begin with. You're rejoicing about something that you don't have.
Faith is absolutely a substance
. It's not a hope. Hope isn't--hope isn't... Faith is the substance of things hoped for. But when faith takes it, it becomes the substance that you hope for (See?), the evidence of things not seen.

E-12 With my purchase power, there's where it is, Christian friends. Please understand. May God open our hearts to this understanding, that faith is not a myth, neither is it something that's a--you just imagine. Faith is positive. Faith is the substance, just the same as this glass is, just the same as this book is. "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence..." O blessed be His holy Name. It is the evidence of things you do not see, but you believe it. When God has spoken it, God has to keep His Word. And every promise is yours if you can receive it as yours.

E-6 Now, some thinks that it's a mental conception of the Word, but that is not right. Faith is a substance. Faith is not a myth. Say... Faith is a substance of things hoped for; the evidence... To have an evidence, it must be a substance. So it is not just something that you imagine in your mind; it's something that absolutely, you have. It's something that you possess in your own being. And what is it? It's the evidence of things that you have hoped for. It's the evidence of things you do not have as yet, but you have the authority of God to say that you have it. It's an evidence, something you have in your heart.

E-8 Now, "If the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for battle?" Now, that is quite a statement: "The Uncertain Sound."
Now, if you're not certain, then you can't have faith. If there's no certainty, then you cannot have any faith. Because faith is something that's certain. You know it. It's the--the... "Faith is the substance of things that's hoped for, the evidence of things that's not seen." It's not a myth. It's just not an imagination. And it's not hope, but it's faith.
And faith is a substance. It's something that God has given you. And then you do not see it, but you, yet you've--you've just as sure got it, as if you had it right in your hands. And faith is what purchases the product that you're hoping for.

E-19 Now, in Hebrews we're taught again, that the faith... Hebrews 11: "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." See? It is a substance. Now, it isn't a hope. Most people come with hope. But faith is the substance. It isn't something that you're hoping for. When faith has taken a hold, you have a substance, not just a myth. You've got a hold of something. You know it. Nothing shakes you from it. It's yours. You're positive. You have it in your hand. You've got it. It's your possession.

E-25 I've noticed, and it's been very outstanding through thirty years in, thirty-one years, rather, behind the pulpit; and about sixteen years now in constantly around the world in prayer lines, and watching people... People always, will never--seldom find one that will confess that they have no faith; they've always got all the faith.
But see, faith is different than what you think it is; or not what you, I mean the average person, would think. Mostly, it's hope instead of faith. You have a mental conception of faith, what it means, and mentally you have faith. But you go deeper than that. See? You go deeper. Faith is positive. It is the substance. It's not a myth, not a intellectual imagination, but it is a substance. And substance is something that you can hold on to. See? It's "the substance of things hoped for, and it's the evidence of things not seen," in the Hebrews, the 1st--11th chapter, 1st verse. Now, that faith is not...

114 And so when a man lives by faith and walks by faith, I mean substance faith, he is isolated from the entire world and becomes a new creature in Christ. There, now you're getting into Bride material. You see, see? You're getting into rapturing condition now. That means for each one of us, not just the pastor, deacons, trustees; that means for the laity, every individual walks in a world with God alone. You're baptized into this Kingdom, and there's nobody in there but you and God. See? He gives the orders, and you pack them out. Whatever He says, there's not a shadow of doubt nowhere; you walk right on. If the Lord says this, there's nobody in the world can talk you out of it; you go right on just the same. Now, you're coming into perfect faith, perfect perfection that cannot fail. That faith never fails.
Yes, He was a mystic to them with His perfect faith; and so is it now with those who have perfect faith are a mystic to others.

22 When a man gets his answer from God, there's nothing going to stop him.
Most people today, as I will repeat myself from last night, saying they have hope instead of faith. You find people coming on the platform, they're--they're just built up in hopes.
"But faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence..." So it's not a myth; it's not imagination. It's something you've got. You've already got it. And you're just as happy with it, that faith that you have, as you would be if you had the substance in your hand.

E-10 Now, God is omnipotent, omnipresent. By being omniscient, makes Him omnipresent; He--He knows all things. But God could not be just like the air is, because God has a dwelling place. God is not a myth. God is a Being: God, Jesus. He, God, (pronoun), He is a Being. Therefore He's omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, and infinite.
Now, to be infinite, it comes through a word "infinite," which "there is no limit." He is Eternal. Eternal is like a ring. It goes around and around, and you're trying to find where it began or where it ends. There is no beginning or ending to it.
God is like a great Diamond that sets like this. And the gifts of the Spirit is the reflection of this Diamond, that reflects rays of light off of this big Diamond. Like nine spiritual gifts in the church, is like nine rays that the Holy Spirit is reflecting into the church. What a Light to walk in, from the one great Diamond, God.
