What was and still is "THE FAITH OF JESUS CHRIST"?
Man shall not live by bread alone, BUT BY EVERY
scrlclose.gif
WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Will you be found having this same Jewish FAITH  that the Jewish "JESUS CHRIST" had and delivered to His Jewish Saints in the Nation of Israel on His judgmemt DAY?
 
(Rev 14:12 KJV)  "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they THAT KEEP the commandments of God,  AND THE FAITH OF JESUS." 
 

 

  WHAT IS THE FAITH OF CHRIST?

"FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THE THING HOPED FOR".

"The Substance". = G5287 hupostasis;

Hupostasis; = The "Knowledge" of Christ's Kingdom called God's Israel and the knowledge of the things that are hope for by His Saints, that He, as the God of Israel, has promised to all them that have loved Him and embraced the Father's FAITH and obey Him as His Son Jesus did. If one does not believe every word that came out of the mouth of Christ, they do not have the same faith Jesus Christ had.

What does "FAITH is the substance", in Heb. 11:1-3 mean? What words defines "the substance"?

(Heb 11:1-3 KJV) Now FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (FAITH, our believing every WORD that came out of the Mouth of God) {2} For by it the elders obtained a good report. {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."

Our FAITH must be the faith of Jesus to believe that God's WORD is the absolute truth and authority for all our understands. If we do, our believing and do them, gives us the same FAITH that Jesus had. All the teachings of man are false teachings unless they agree with the WORDS of Christ. Did you believe the words of Jesus where He said He would be three days and three nights in the grave?

(Mat 12:40 KJV) "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." If you do not believe this statement of Christ to be the absolute truth, you do not have "the FAITH of Jesus Christ". It was He who said it.

"Faith is". G4102. pistis, pis'-tis; from G3982; persuasion, i.e. credence; mor. conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), espec. reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstr. constancy in such profession; by extens. the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself:--assurance, belief, believe, faith, fidelity.

"The Substance". G5287 hupostasis; hoop-os'-tas-is from a comp. of G5259 and G2476; a setting under (support) i.e. (fig.)

Hupostasis; is the Greek Word from which we get the English Word, UNDERSTANDING from.

These are the only four places in the KJ Bible where the Greek word "Hupostasis" is used. In Heb 11:1 It is Translated substance. In 2 Cor 9:4 it is translated Confident. In 2 Cor 11:17 It is translated Confident. In Heb 3:14 It is translated confidence.

Heb 3:14, 5287. hupostasis, hoop-os'-tas-is; from a comp. of G5259 and G2476; a setting under (support), i.e. (fig.) concr. essence, or abstr. assurance (obj. or subj.):--confidence, confident, person, substance.

We get our (FAITH) understanding of what are the TRUTHS of the God of Israel, and we get our confidence from believing in the SALVATION of the God of Israel from His teachings and promises He made to us in the His WORD. We do this by hearing and reading the Whole Word of God. We only have the FAITH of Jesus Christ when we rightly Understand His Words and have the same Confidence, FAITH, that He had in His Father's Plan of Salvation to keep and do it completely. Having the right understanding of the God of Israel's Words offers us His Salvation. If we truly hear and do His Words to understand it and then live our lives by it, we have the same FAITH   (understanding)Jesus Christ had. If we have the same Understanding and the same Confidence that Jesus had from reading and hearing the Father's Word and response in the same way He responded to it, we receive His Father's SALVATION. If we do not react in the same way that Jesus reacted to His Father's Holy Words, and we do not try to believe as He believed, we are without any hope of His Salvation in the world.

(Eph 2:12 KJV) Paul said: "That at that time ye (Gentiles) were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, HAVING NO HOPE, and WITHOUT GOD in the world:"

Do you believe that one has to become part of the God of Israel's Commonwealth and take holy of His Covenant to be saved? If not you do not have the same FAITH Paul and Jesus Christ had.

(Heb 3:18-19 KJV) "And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? {19} So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief."

(Heb 4:1-3 KJV) "Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. {2} For unto us was the gospel preached (The Faith of Jesus Christ) , as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. {3} For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world."

Hupostasis, Comes form two words: G5259, Hupo, and G2476, Histemi. G5259. hupo, hoop-o'; a prim. prep.; under, i.e. (with the gen.) of place (beneath), or with verbs (the agency or means, through); (with the acc.) of place (whither [underneath] or where [below]) or time (when [at]):--among, by, from, in, of, under, with. In comp. it retains the same gen. applications, espec. of inferior position or condition, and spec. covertly or moderately. G2476. histemi, his'-tay-mee; a prol. form of a prim. stao, stah'-o (of the same mean., and used for it in certain tenses); to stand (trans. or intrans.), used in various applications (lit. or fig.):--abide, appoint, bring, continue, covenant, establish, hold up, lay, present, set (up), stanch, stand (by, forth, still, up). Comp. G5087.

"Evidence". G1650. elegchos, el'-eng-khos; from G1651; proof, conviction:--evidence, reproof.

The person who truly follows the Jewish FAITH of Jesus Christ, has no other written evidence and should needs no other evidence that that presented by the God of Israel in His Holy Hebrew Bible. He is real and His Words are truth. The Hebrew Bible contains both the Old and New Covenant with His People Israel. All other writing that teach another ways of Salvation, than that written in the Jewish Bible, which was and still is "the FAITH of Christ" that He delivered to His People Israel, are Antichrist teaching, teaching opposed to Christ teaching in His WORD.

(Gal 1:9-12 KJV) "As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel (FAITH) unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. {10} For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. {11} But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel (FAITH) which was preached of me is not after man. {12} For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ."

"Not Seen". G991. blepo, blep'-o; a prim. verb; to look at (lit. or fig.):--behold, beware, lie, look (on, to), perceive, regard, see, sight, take heed. Comp. G3700.

"Through Faith we Understand". 3539. noieo, noy-eh'-o; from G3563; to exercise the mind (observe), i.e. (fig.) to comprehend, heed:--consider, perceive, think, understand.

Pillar: The understanding of the Truth. The Substance. G5287 hupostasis; hoop-os'-tas-is from a comp. of G5259 and G2476; a setting under (support) i.e. (fig.)

KNOW = G1097. ginosko, ghin-oce'-ko; a prol. form of a prim. verb; to "know" (absol.), in a great variety of applications and with many impl. (as follow, with others not thus clearly expressed):--allow, be aware (of), feel, (have) known (-ledge), perceive, be resolved, can speak, be sure, understand.

(1 Tim 3:15 KJV) "But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar (support) and ground of the truth." (His understanding)

(Rev 3:12 KJV) "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar (support) in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out (depart from the Faith of Jesus Christ): and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name."

TO KNOW IS TO Understand. TO UNDERSTAND AND NOT DO WHAT WE UNDERSTAND WE ARE TO DO, IS TO NOT KNOW Jehovah GOD AT ALL.

Our understanding of the Hebrew's Bible is our Religious Faith. If our understanding of God's Holy Word is different than that taught and understood by Jesus Christ and Paul, we do not have the same FAITH (understanding) that they had. We should contend for that one true faith (understanding) that was delivered to the Saints.

(Jude 1:3-4 KJV) "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. {4} For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."

Get UNDERSTANDING:

(Psa 119:104 KJV) "Through thy precepts I GET UNDERSTANDING (FAITH) : therefore I hate every false way (FAITH) ."

We only get the right understanding (FAITH) of God's Holy Word from reading all of God's Holy Word. If one does not separate themselves from the Pagan FAITHS taught by the Babylon FAITHS, you will have a mixture of two FAITHS, a mixture of faiths that is unacceptable before God on the Day of JUDGMENT.

(Prov 4:5-8 KJV) "Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. {6} Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. {7} Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. {8} Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her."

(Prov 16:16-17 KJV) "How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! {17} The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul."

FAITH. G4102. pistis, pis'-tis; from G3982; persuasion, i.e. credence; mor. conviction (of religious truth, or the truthfulness of God or a religious teacher), espec. reliance upon Christ for salvation; abstr. constancy in such profession; by extens. the system of religious (Gospel) truth itself:--assurance, belief, believe, faith, fidelity. This Word, Faith, Appears 245 times in 229 verses in the New Testament.

(Mat 6:30 KJV) "Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little FAITH?" (Without much understanding of the Gospel)

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the Knowledge and Truth about the Kingdom of God and the only Way into it. That TRUTH was established by our Heavenly Father on Earth by the Earthly ministry of Jesus Christ and Paul. If one puts their trust in any other teaching than those of the Holy Bible, they are trusting in a different God than the God of Israel, who is the Lord Jesus Christ.

(Mat 8:8-10 KJV) "The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. {9} For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. {10} When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great FAITH, (Understanding of the power of God's Kingdom) no, not in Israel."

As a solder in the Roman Army, he understood the authority of the Kingdom of the God of Israel. He had great Faith, a great understanding of the powers of Israel's God.

(Mat 8:26 KJV) "And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little FAITH (Understanding) ? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm." (Mark 9:23 KJV) "Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."

Here we have Jesus Christ rebuking the Disciples because the did not yet understand the authority of the TRUE followers of the Christ of Israel. A person who has been restored to the Father's Holy Life living within him, has authority over every thing on earth. Adam was given Authority over every moving thing on earth but lost that authority by sinning. Jesus who never sinned because of His total obedience to do His Father's Words from Heaven, gained back what Adam had lost when He received "Christ" in His Anointing as King over all the Earth's realm.

(Heb 1:8-9 KJV) "But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. {9} Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows."

(Rom 1:5 KJV) "By whom we have received grace and apostleship, FOR OBEDIENCE TO THE FAITH (The right understanding of the Gospel) among all nations, for his name:"

(Rom 3:3 KJV) "For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith (The right understanding of the Gospel) of God without effect?"

(Rom 3:28 KJV) "Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith (Through living by the right understanding of the Gospel) without the deeds of the law."

(Rom 3:31 KJV) "Do we then make void the law through ( our right understanding of the Gospel of) FAITH? God forbid: yea, we establish the law (Through our right understanding of the Gospel)."  ITS OUR OBEDIENCE TO THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS CHRIST THAT BRINGS US TO HAVE THE SAME FAITH THAT JESUS HAD.

 Jesus was obedient to His Father's teachings, the same teachings He is teaching us in the Hebrew's Bible.

If one is not obedient to do the teaching of the Father as Jesus was, he does not have the same FAITH that Jesus had. We are saved through the FAITH of Jesus Christ if that same FAITH lives in us.

(Rom 4:9 KJV) "Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that FAITH (the right understanding of the Gospel) was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness."

(Rom 4:13 KJV) "For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of FAITH ( The same FAITH Jesus Christ had) ."

(Heb 11:6 KJV) "But without FAITH (Understanding of the Gospel) 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."

(Heb 11:7 KJV) "By FAITH (Understanding of the Gospel) 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."

(Heb 11:8 KJV) "By FAITH (Understanding of the Gospel) Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went."

(Heb 11:9 KJV) "By faith (Understanding of the Gospel) 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:"

(James 2:1 KJV) "My brethren, have not the faith (Understanding of the Gospel) of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons."

(James 2:14 KJV) "What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith (Can just Understanding of the Gospel) save him?"

(James 2:17 KJV) "Even so faith (Understanding of the Gospel), if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."

(James 2:26 KJV) "For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith (Just Understanding of the Gospel) without works is dead also."

(1 Pet 1:5 KJV) "Who are kept by the power of God through faith (Our Understanding of the Gospel) unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time."

(2 Pet 1:4-6 KJV) "Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. {5} And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith (Your Understanding of the Gospel) virtue; and to virtue knowledge; {6} And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;"

(1 John 5:4 KJV) "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even OUR FAITH (Our Understanding of the Gospel)."

(Jude 1:3 KJV) "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly CONTEND FOR THE FAITH (Having Christ's Understandings is the light of the Gospel) which was once delivered unto the saints."

(Jude 1:20 KJV) "But ye, beloved, building up yourselves ON YOUR MOST HOLY FAITH, (Christ's Understanding of the Gospel) praying in the Holy Ghost,"

(Rev 14:12 KJV) "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they THAT KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD, and the FAITH (The Understanding of the Gospel) of Jesus."

Preach the Gospel, the FAITH of Jesus Christ.

(Mat 4:23 KJV) "And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, (The Faith of Jesus Christ) and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people."

(Mat 9:35 KJV) "And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel (The Faith of Christ and His Father) of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people."

(Mat 24:14 KJV) "And this GOSPEL (The Faith of Christ and His Father) of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."

(Mark 13:10 KJV) "And the gospel (The Faith of Christ and His Father) must first be published among all nations."

(Mark 16:15-16 KJV) "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ) to every creature. {16} He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."

(Rom 1:16 KJV) "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek." (That have the FAITH of Jesus Christ)

(Rom 2:16 KJV) "In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ) ."

(Rom 10:16-18 KJV) "But they have not all obeyed the gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ). For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? {17} So then FAITH COMETH BY HEARING , and hearing by the word of God. {18} But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world."

(1 Cor 4:15 KJV) "For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ)."

(2 Cor 4:3-6 KJV) "But if our gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ) be hid, IT IS HID TO THEM THAT ARE LOST: {4} In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ) of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. {5} For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. {6} For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ."

(Eph 1:13 KJV) "In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ) of YOUR SALVATION: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,"

(Eph 6:19 KJV) "And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ),"

(Heb 4:2 KJV) "For unto us was the gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ) preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it."

(1 Pet 1:25 KJV) "But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel (The Faith of Jesus Christ) is preached unto you."

(1 Pet 4:17-18 KJV) "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the END BE OF THEM THAT OBEY NOT THE GOSPEL (The Faith of Jesus Christ) of God? {18} And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"

Knowledge; G4894. suneido, soon-i'-do; from G4862 and G1492; to see completely; used (like its prim.) only in two past tenses, respectively mean. to understand or become aware, and to be conscious or (clandestinely) informed of:--consider, know, be privy, be ware of. (to see completely) (to understand or become aware) G4894. suneido = Knowledge

(Rev 3:18 KJV) "I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see." ;

(2 Tim 2:15 KJV) "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH:"

(Luke 1:75-77 KJV) "IN HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS BEFORE HIM, ALL THE DAYS OF OUR LIFE. {76} And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; {77} TO GIVE KNOWLEDGE OF SALVATION UNTO THE PEOPLE by the remission of their sins,"

(Luke 11:52 KJV) "Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken AWAY THE KEY OF KNOWLEDGE : ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered." (Your Key to knowledge is your obedience to do God's WORDS.)

(Rom 1:28 KJV) "And even as they DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN GOD IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;"

(Rom 10:2 KJV) "For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, BUT NOT ACCORDING TO KNOWLEDGE."

(Rom 11:33 KJV) "O the depth of the riches both of THE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE IF GOD! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!"

(Rom 15:13-14 KJV) "Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. {14} And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, FILLED WITH ALL KNOWLEDGE, able also to admonish one another."

(1 Cor 1:4-6 KJV) "I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; {5} That in every thing ye are enriched by him, IN ALL UTTERANCE, AND IN ALL KNOWLEDGE; {6} Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:"

(1 Cor 8:1-3 KJV) "Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. {2} And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, HE KNOWETH NOTHING YET AS HE OUGHT TO KNOW. {3} But if any man love God, the same is known of him."

(1 Cor 8:7 KJV) "Howbeit THERE IS NOT IN EVERY MAN THAT KNOWLEDGE: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience (G4894) being weak is defiled."

(1 Cor 15:34 KJV) "Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for SOME HAVE NOT THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD: I speak this to your shame."

(2 Cor 4:6-7 KJV) "For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give THE LIGHT OF THE KNOWLEDGE of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. {7} But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us."

(2 Cor 8:6-7 KJV) "Insomuch that we desired Titus, that as he had begun, so he would also finish in you the same grace also. {7} Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and KNOWLEDGE, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye abound in this grace also."

(2 Cor 10:5 KJV) "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing THAT EXALTETH ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, and bringing into captivity every thought TO THE OBEDIENCE OF CHRIST;"

(Eph 1:17-18 KJV) "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM and REVELATION in the knowledge of him: {18} The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,"

(Eph 3:3-5 KJV) "How that by REVELATION he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, {4} Whereby, WHEN YE READ, ye may understand MY KNOWLEDGE in the mystery of Christ) {5} Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;"

(Eph 3:18-19 KJV) "May be able to COMPREHEND with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; {19} And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might BE FILLED WITH ALL THE FULLED WITH ALL THE FULNESS OF GOD."

(Eph 4:13-15 KJV) "Till we all come IN TO THE UNITY OF THE FAITH (The one Faith that Jesus had), and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto A PERFECT MAN, unto the measure of THE STATURE OF THE FULNESS OF CHRIST: {14} That we henceforth be no more children, TOSSES TO AND FRO, and CARRIED ABOUT WITH EVERY WIND OF DOCTRINE, by the sleight of men, and cunning CRAFTINNESS, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may GROW UP INTO HIM in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

There are many FAITHS and they are composed of the many teaching and UNDERSTANDINGS of the people who practice them. They are all diverse one from the anothers in some of their teachings. There is the one TRUE FAITH of the Jewish Christ as defined by the Bible with it's HEAD in Heaven. There are also many Jewish Faiths, many Baptist Faiths, many Pentecostal Faiths, many Lutheran Faiths, the Roman Catholic Faith, the Greek Orthodox Faith, the Advent Faith, and thousands of other Faiths and they all have teaching diverse one from another with their headquarters here on earth. The questions now is what Faith are you going to be a part of? Is your Faiths head quarters here on earth or is it in heaven where the throne of Jesus Christ abides? If it is, the Holy Bible is your only authority that you live your life by in the FAITH of JESUS CHRIST.
