I just wanted to express my appreciation for your research and scholarship on the subject of faith and hupostasis.
I can see that many, many hours have gone into this study. Thank you so much! Thank you and I love you. This whole dialogue on the subject of biblical faith has been enlightening. It also brings to light the struggles many have to distinguish what true faith is as opposed to what it has become, especially in our western American culture. Tipton says. The man who trusts God is he who casts all his hopes for the present and future on God. It is the former quality, not the latter, that God regards as a condition of justification. Faith must precede hope, because a hope for the future which is not grounded upon a present acceptance with God, is no hope; and a sense of acceptance which is not accompanied by a living, working faith is an unreality.
Hope is more of the mind and faith is of the heart. Hope is more associated with the written word and faith comes by hears personally from Jesus Romans I have written a book and I wanted to quote two short paragraphs from this page. Is that ok? Kyle — What is the nature of the book? Is it pro-faith and in agreement with the article?

Geo Fisher, thanks for the comment. From the posts faith is the under girding of hope. Faith is important for living. Jesus said in Luke When the Son of man comes, will He find faith on the earth? Romans Paul said whatsoever is not of faith is sin. I welcome any comment! Faith is not an assurance to us or evidence to us. Thanks Rex for the explanation — faith guarantees my experience of what I am expecting from God! God bless!
Can I say Heb this way watching the tenses of the verse? It is common in the papyri in business documents as the basis or guarantee of transactions. Tipton I love how you explained faith as a Person. I believe that.

So glad that in I found your comments. Can you expand on Heb Is hope than not mine but belongs to faith since it is passive n not active tense. Help me understand. Eemie — Fr. Tipton is not part of our site, but he may answer if he sees the notification of your comment. I will take my stab at answering your question:. In this verse, faith is that support and is intended to support hope. I believe hope precedes and continues through and after the involvement of faith. God does that because of the ownership and evidence of faith concerning that hope.
God bless you. So if I understand you correctly faith is the undergirding of my continuous earnest expectation….. Am I correct in saying it this way. Hebrews has so intrigued me that I am trying to understand it, looking at the tenses n the Greek transliteration. What if it is in active form? Am not a Greek scholar! Anymore insight would be welcomed.
APPLY THE WORD
Thanks again. Eemie — You are correct — Faith is the undergirding of my continuous earnest expectation. I like it. This verse intrigues me too. I am not an expert on the Greek and the tenses. And I have 30 or so translations to get a feel for the verse. If a letter about Mashiach Christ were written by a Jew to Jews today, the Hebrew word for faith , which is emunah, would certainly be used instead of a Greek word, English word, or that of some other language.
This is because of the special connotations of the word, emunah, in Hebrew. How does this affect the meaning? To get a sense of the special meaning of the Hebrew word, emunah, we can look at the fact that it is closely related to the word, amen. Emunah is the feminine form of this root. It is itself an affirmation of faith or belief. Context and usage have given a great deal of associated meaning to the root of emunah and also to the word emunah itself. When Mashiach Christ reveals emunah faith in a way that speaks to this world but could never otherwise be found in this world, the Hebrew ear of emunah is a well developed ear.
Why then does the author of Hebrews preach emunah to the Jews of the apostolic generation? We should not read this statement at chapter as attempting so much to teaching the Jewish reader what emunah is, as to be attempting to teach the Jewish believer to better understand the position of emunah in relation to repentance, to obedience to God, and to the redemption of the world. These are the things that are hoped for.
Emunah is already the beginning of the reality of these things. However, in Heb. I believe with a different nuance of meaning it would be possible to use the same word in both Hebrew and English to translate hupostasis in both Heb. So then if Faith is the word of God in the human spirit, then faith is the reality by which we live, for the Just shall life by faith!! Therefore, when we have inward corresponding actions by the above process mentioned, then we can say: faith is an assurance, a confirmation, a title deed, a substance, a confident expectation of things hoped for.
Selah Bless you all. Faith is the vehicle by which we obtain our hope in God through Christ. Faith is trusting God that Christ the anointed word can and will manifest our hope. Real faith has inward corresponding actions of what we believe we have received, therefore we naturally act upon our hope as so. Its Christ Jesus. We see that faith is a vehicle of trust in God, that the anointed word Christ that leaves our mouth based on covenant promises shall come back fulfilled because God the Father is active and watching over His word to fulfill it.
And we will know when this type of trust in God has been released by having obtained inward corresponding actions that naturally act on what we believe. We obtain these inner corresponding actions a inner knowing by applying spiritual warfare. I skimmed through your latest comment and the recent article from the link above. These are issues that I have a real interest in. Obviously, skimming will not work. I want to absorb this and respond intelligently. It may be a couple weeks before I can give it the attention it deserves. I am crazy busy this week getting ready for 10 wonderful days in California.
I have to go back home and breath the air there ever so often. I look forward to it. If I have to know how hypostasis is used on 1 Corinthians to know how to use it in Hebrews, then how does the person looking at 1 Corinthians know how to use it in Hebrews? By looking at Hebrew? Here we find ourselves trapped in large forms of Circular Logic which end up with us just asserting what we assumed in the beginning. The Appeal to Authority of scholars while helpful, and yes expertise is what we should often look to, begs the question as to WHO is the authority over the words of Scriptures.
Here we might find Faith defined as the Person of Christ, a quality or virtue, such that to have that virtue is to rest in the quality of that person, i. This would of course require a way to participate in Christ as a Person. We need to participate in his Faith to have our own faith.
Have a relationship with me, with us, The Trinity! So how do we participate in Christ? We have to become part of him tangibly and intangibly, in body and soul. So bread and wine tangible but the divine nature of Christ intangible. These tangible forms of intangible connect our souls and bodies to the soul and body of Jesus.
Our faith to his Faith. This would mean to Resurrection. Faith must be fed by tangible forms of grace. This is a Faith that is of the substance or Person hypostasis we do not see. But our faith will never compare to Faith-itself which God alone is, for it is the Standard by which our faiths is measured and weighed.
Gregory — I hope I am at least in the ballpark in responding to your comment. Thanks, by the way. I enjoyed it. Or, do you even agree with that? Does this happen when He speaks to us, and thus sanctions His specific will to us in the form of faith? Faith, the Bible says, comes by hearing, and hearing by the spoken words of Christ Romans Does He not do it by speaking His word to our hearts? Making it become visible at the appointed time? It works like this:. Also, I think I agree with you somewhat on the circular argument comment at the beginning.
I think I would like to talk to you. I would like to hear your comments on other articles on this site. God bless. In the same way before we can discuss how music or epistles or love is communicated, we have to first figure out what kind of things they are.
Without those understandings we might think epistles are communicated through notes, or love through thought alone. The medium of communication partly depends on what the content is. Instead I want to focus on. Is that all of it? Is this all? No, as the Scripture you cited tells us. And hearing through the word of Christ. But if this is all that is necessary, why did the Father send a Son to die? Furthermore, the Son was sent to bring us to The Father.
MUSTARD SEED STORIES
Moses heard from the bush, Samuel heard the Lord in the Temple as a boy. God forbid! So what are we missing? The Word is Christ. But here a masculine pronoun is used, and thus is Christ. They are words indeed, but not The Word. A: In a sense yes, in a sense no. This means there is not a direct line from God the Father to us.
We have a mediator, Jesus Christ the High Priest who eternally celebrates The Day of Atonement for the remission of the sins of the world. Well then does the Father speak The Word and then Jesus brings faith to our hearts?
Here we must answer no. If this were the case then we have no need of an Incarnation. Then faith must enter us by hearing, but something else is necessary. We have not given a sufficient account yet of The Hope. A: Virtue must be transferred by the actual Person of Christ. So Incarnation. We need tangible flesh and blood. A: Read St. Hope that clarifies something? Feelings, attainment of goals, joy, peace etc are not good, single measures because they are susceptible to manipulation and evil.
So if our faith is making us increasingly obedient to God — then maybe we are on the right track and headed right where we need to: God. And if we keep headed on this course — then all the other fruits of faith come along as well i. I feel the same way most of the time. I agree, but how do you know that you are correctly obeying and in purity?
Many people do atrocious and ungodly things in the name of God.serenissimaaccademiadelgusto.it/qyw-clorochina-fosfato.php

I think it all comes down to hearing — correctly. The purity of our heart will determine the purity of our hearing, and that, the purity of our response. Hearing and how we hear is huge. It determines our eternity. Jesus told us to be careful how and what we hear Luke Obedience is based on hearing.
