Important Terminologies and Definitions to Know and use to Examine Yourself if Truly You Are in the Christian Faith (2 Corinthians 13:5):
Believe: Believe is an ACT of TRUSTING and HAVING CONFIDENCE on the INFORMATION that is RECEIVED to the EXTENT that the RECEIVER ACT on THE INFORMATION. In other word, a true and Godly approved believer is a person that trust and has confidence on the information that he/she received to the extent that he/she acted on the information. Believe is a verb, therefore you must act. If you do not act on the received information, you are not a believer at the realm of the Spirit. Should we trust and have confidence in the information that are received from the Holy Bible. Yes, all biblical information comes from the living God that created, sustain and possess the heavens and the earth (2 Timothy 3:16-17). God manifested, dwelled and infused Himself inside human biblical writers in order to use them in submitting His Words. The real author of the Bible is the living God (2 Peter 1: 20-21). A believer will experience what it is acted on by faith . For example, a woman of the issue of the blood confessed Christ’s unlimited power and acted on her confession (Mark 5:24-25).
Faith: Faith is a Noun. A noun is the name of a person, place or thing. A person, place and thing are created by living life. Faith is created by the spoken Words. The received information on how faith is created is found in Romans 10:17–“Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God”. Whatever Words that you hear and believe are the once that will be Created in the table of your mind. The place on living for Faith is the mind of a person that has it. Faith is built when we yield and five senses to God’s Word. The degree of a person’s faith is equal in size to his/her knowledge in the Word of God. The bible says that God’s people perish because of lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). A true believer will seek biblical answer to every situation of life. The Bible is the only scriptural known scriptural book that make us to know that, there is God. And that, this God has spoken. Faith has a law. Faith in God is not dead, therefore it is alive. Some of the sick people that received there healing from Jesus Christ were told by them that there faith made them whole. One of them is woman that is spoken about in Mark 5:24-25). The true church of Christ is the medium through which Kingdom of God is experience on earth by building believe and faith in God’s Word. Faith must be built on God’s Word but not on any other thing or medium. Your faith is built and grows if you Read, Meditate, pray and reflect on God’s Word (Joshua 1:8-9)
Word: The Word is a noun. The Word of God is another name for Jesus Christ (Revelation 19:13). The Word by nature is alive and He is a Spirit (John 6:63). Since the Spoken Word is alive and Spiritual, He has the ability to create the image and character that is confessed. The Words that God spoke out by faith built the heavens and earth (Genesis 1 and 2; Psalm 33:6; John 1:1-3). God confessed that He would create whatever that is spoken out of our mouth (Isaiah 57:19). People that speak negativities out of their mouth to themselves experiences negativities. The bible revealed to us that life and death are in the power of the tongue (Proverb 18:21).
