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. Hebrew 11:6 (KJV)
It is quoted in Habakkuk:
Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him, but the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2:4 (KJV) Paul, an Apostle of Yahshua utilized this verse within his letter to the Romans (Romans 1:17). Read Habakkuk chapters 1-2
Abram believed in YHVH
He believed in the LORD; and He counted it to him for righteousness. Genesis 15:6 (KJV)
Faith is believing in YHVH
It is written that “Is anything too hard for the LORD”. Genesis 18:14 (read the whole chapter).
After these things (read previous chapter) the Word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram; I AM thy Shield, and thy Exceeding Great Reward. And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed; and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir. And, behold, the Word of the LORD came unto him, saying, This shall not be thine heir, but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir. And He brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the LORD; and He counted it to him for righteousness. Genesis 15:1-6 (KJV)
Habakkuk, the Prophet of the One True and Living GOD, asked the LORD many questions regarding the plight of His people. During the time of Habakkuk, the Israelites were living in misery, because of their choice to disregard their GOD, who loved, protected and provided for them. However, Habakkuk asked several questions, but the LORD's reply was: "the Just shall live by their faith (KJV)
Yahshua taught Faith
Scenario: The woman with the issue of blood as recorded in the Mark Chapter 5, utilized her faith to resist depression, left her home in hopes to touch Yahshua, moved through the crowd, in order to get through to Him. With her issue of blood, she was unclean and could not touch people and people were not to touch her (Leviticus 15:19-27). However, the woman within this scenario, pressed beyond the norm, to touch the tzitzit on Yahshua's clothing or prayer shawl. All of her actions were acts of faith.
The LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue; And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the Commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring, that ye may remember, and do all my Commandments and be holy unto your GOD.
I AM the LORD your GOD, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your GOD, I AM the LORD your GOD. Numbers 15:37-41 (KJV)
The fore mentioned woman in Mark chapter 5, resolved herself to receive healing from the Son, of the One True and Living GOD. She did not allow anything including herself to remain "out-of-touch" with Yahshua. According to the Law of YHVH, the woman with the blood ailment could not touch anyone; However, she moved by faith and received complete healing. Per the scriptural passage found in Mark 5, Yahshua knew that someone had touched Him and that it was not a casual touch from the crowd. This touch was a FAITH touch and had caused Power to be released from Him.
A certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse. When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment. She said, if I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole. Straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, who touched my clothes?
His disciples said unto Him, thou see the multitude thronging thee, and say thou, Who touched me? He looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
The woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth. He said unto her, daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
Mark 5:25-34 (KJV)
Resolve yourself for deliverance by pressing through situations and get to the One who has the POWER to heal, and He is Yahshua ha Mashiach, the Son of the One True and Living GOD.
Read: Malachi chapter 4
For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble; and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of Hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
But unto you that fear my Name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of Hosts.
Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse. Malachi 4:1-6 (KJV)
Note: John the Baptizer came in the spirit of Elijah (Mark 1:1-8; Matthew 3; Matthew 11:7-15)
Note: The specifically knotted fringes are called tzitzit (Hebrew is spelled differently without western consonants) The tzitzit is attached to the wearers’ prayer shawl or their outer garments and visible.
