Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. I did not ask, “Do You Believe ‘In’ God?” From Genesis to Revelation, across America and around the world, there are countless people who “believe ‘in’ God.” Sometimes it’s with a small ‘g,’ since there are some three million gods worshiped in India alone and often it’s even through the preaching of ‘another Jesus,’ that we are deceived in our thinking, so Paul the Apostle warns us to test the spirits!
We’re talking about real faith here, clinging to, trusting in and relying on The One and Only Begotten Son Of God, Jesus Christ, Messiah, Who came to reconcile us unto The Father, giving us eternal, everlasting, abundant, resurrection Life, by imparting to us His Holy Spirit!
I started with Abraham, because he is our father of faith, according to the New Testament.
Before he became the father of many nations or the father of the multitudes, his name was Abram, who obviously believed ‘in’ God, but his life was drastically changed when he believed God, according to Holy Scripture.
Cain certainly believed ‘in’ God enough to bring Him a sacrifice from the works of his hands, but Able believed God and his lamb was found acceptable in God’s sight, so there must be a major difference, between just believing ‘in’ God and believing Him, taking Him at His Word, because the devil, demons, evil spirits and fallen angels believe ‘in’ God and they tremble!
