  • What is faith

    2. 2. When the New Testament was translated from the Greek into English nearly 400 years ago, the translators were still puzzled by this word “hupostasis,” as it seemed to be some kind of business terminology not normally used in classical Greek literature. All they knew was that it meant something fairly substantial, so they translated it as “substance.” Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for” and the word translated “substance” in this verse is the Greek word “hupostasis”.
    3. 3. But some years ago archaeologists uncovered the remains of an old inn in northern Israel. There they found a small iron chest containing the valuable papers of a Roman noblewoman who had owned lands and property in Israel. And almost every paper had this title in big letters across the top: “Hupostasis”! They were all title deeds to her properties! This Roman woman had perhaps never seen her properties in Israel, but she knew they were hers and she could prove her ownership because she had the title deeds.
    4. 4. Someone promised to give me a car once, and they sent the title deed to me by mail. Though I'd never seen the car and never driven it, I knew it was mine because I had the title in my hand.
    5. 5. If you've asked the Lord for something but haven't seen the answer yet, don't worry. If you have real faith, then you've got the title to it in your hands, and your name is written on it!
