Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith – Pistis: is information we receive from God. Acting on that information becomes belief. “Now the information that we received from God for us to act upon is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” Substance – Hupostasis Combination of two Greek words: The First word is the Greek Preposition: “Under” The Second Greek word means to: “Stand” Now let’s incorporate these definitions into Hebrew 11:1 with our new understanding of Pistis: “Now the information that we receive from God that we are to act upon stands under, as a foundation, the things we hope for and this foundation becomes our evidence for things we cannot see yet with our physical eyes… Let me sum this up: Revelation we receive and act upon becomes our foundation. This foundation assures us of things we cannot see yet we are believing for. When your feet are standing on the foundation you will be convinced of the reality of the promise.
