ABRAHAM's faith:

Hebrews 11:8

King James Version

8 By faith Abraham, 

when he was called to go out 

into a place which he should after 

receive for an inheritance, 


and he went out, 

not knowing whither he went.

Are you a person of faith?

What made you a person of faith?

Here are examples of people who believed.

But first, what is FAITH?

Hebrews 11:1

King James Version

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, 

the evidence of things not seen.

SCRIPTURE speaks of PEOPLE who had FAITH.

ELDERS' faith:

Hebrews 11:2

King James Version

2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

ABEL's faith:

Hebrews 11:4

King James Version

4 By faith Abel offered unto God 

a more excellent sacrifice than Cain

by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, 

God testifying of his gifts: 

and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

ENOCH's faith:

Hebrews 11:5

King James Version

5 By faith Enoch was translated 

that he should not see death

and was not found, 

because God had translated him: 

for before his translation he had this testimony, 

that he pleased God.

NOAH's faith:

Hebrews 11:7

King James Version

7 By faith Noah, 

being warned of God of things not seen as yet, 

moved with fear, 

prepared an ark to the saving of his house

by the which he condemned the world, 

and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

ABRAHAM's faith:

Hebrews 11:9-10

King James Version

9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, 

as in a strange country

dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, 

the heirs with him of the same promise:

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, 

whose builder and maker is God.

Hebrews 11:17

King James Version

17 By faith Abraham, 

when he was tried, 

offered up Isaac: 

and he that had received the promises 

offered up his only begotten son,

SARA's faith:

Hebrews 11:11

King James Version

11 Through faith also 

Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, 

and was delivered of a child when she was past age

because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Abraham's DESCENDANTS faith:

Hebrews 11:13-16

King James Version

13 These all died in faith, 

not having received the promises, 

but having seen them afar off, 

and were persuaded of them, 

and embraced them, 

and confessed that they were strangers 

and pilgrims on the earth.

ISAAC's faith:

Hebrews 11:20

King James Version

20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau 

concerning things to come.

JACOB's faith:

Hebrews 11:21

King James Version

21 By faith Jacob, 

when he was a dying, 

blessed both the sons of Joseph; 

and worshipped

leaning upon the top of his staff.

JOSEPH's faith:

Hebrews 11:22

King James Version

22 By faith Joseph, 

when he died, 

made mention of the departing 

of the children of Israel; 

and gave commandment concerning his bones.

MOSES' faith:

Hebrews 11:23-29

King James Version

23 By faith Moses, 

when he was born, 

was hid three months of his parents, 

because they saw he was a proper child

and they were not afraid of the king's commandment.

24 By faith Moses, 

when he was come to years, 

refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction 

with the people of God, 

than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ 

greater riches than the treasures in Egypt

for he had respect unto the recompence 

of the reward.

27 By faith he forsook Egypt

not fearing the wrath of the king: 

for he endured, 

as seeing him who is invisible.

28 Through faith he kept the passover, 

and the sprinkling of blood

lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

29 By faith they passed through the Red sea 

as by dry land

which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.


Hebrews 11:30

King James Version

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, 

after they were compassed about seven days.

RAHAB's faith:

Hebrews 11:31

King James Version

31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not 

with them that believed not, 

when she had received the spies with peace.

MEN and WOMEN of faith:

Hebrews 11:32-39

King James Version

32 And what shall I more say? 

for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon

and of Barak

and of Samson

and of Jephthae

of David also, 

and Samuel

and of the prophets:

33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, 

wrought righteousness, 

obtained promises, 

stopped the mouths of lions.

34 Quenched the violence of fire, 

escaped the edge of the sword, 

out of weakness were made strong, 

waxed valiant in fight, 

turned to flight the armies of the aliens.

35 Women received their dead raised to life again: 

and others were tortured, 

not accepting deliverance; 

that they might obtain a better resurrection:

36 And others had trial of cruel mockings 

and scourgings, 

yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

37 They were stoned, 

they were sawn asunder, 

were tempted, 

were slain with the sword: 

they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; 

being destitute, 



38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) 

they wandered in deserts, 

and in mountains, 

and in dens and caves of the earth.

39 And these all, 

having obtained a good report through faith, 

received not the promise:

OUR faith:

Hebrews 11:3

King James Version

3 Through faith we understand 

that the worlds were framed 

by the word of God

so that things which are seen 

were not made of things which do appear.

My faith:

Hebrews 11:6

King James Version

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: 

for he that cometh to God must believe that he is

and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

What happens to unbelievers?

Hebrews 11:40

King James Version

40 God having provided some better thing for us, 

that they without us should not be made perfect.
