Incredulity ! Upon the parapet of the castle two figures moved with rapid ferocity. In the dim moonlight, one could catch the glint of polished blades coupled with the signature clang of a real hammer and tongs sword fight. Both were men, and both were mighty in stature. One had a look of cruel, cold confidence, which was complemented nicely by the gaping scar across his left cheek. He seemed to have an air of defiance and his very breath seethed with vehement hate. The other had a mien of gentle strength. He appeared to be the sort of man that could lead a troop of rascally kids on some romp through the woods, but then could turn and become a fierce warrior that would cause any foe to tremble. These two were locked in fearsome combat, and this engagement had already lasted over an hour. This was to the death, and soon one or the other would falter. With serpentine quickness, the warrior the scar disarmed the other. Their panting breath could be seen in the cool night air. “You’re done for,” rasped the triumphant swordsman. “It would appear you have won,” said the gentle youth, with a wry grin of confidence. “Now I shall finish you,” the cruel one declared. “Or so you think...” The scarred warrior was caught off guard with this statement, and then with a look of incredulity beheld his enemy kneel down, and close his eyes. “What are you doing?” He asked with impatience. “I’m overcoming you with faith.” “What?!!”

! Exactly. Incredulity is often the natural realm’s response to faith. In this anecdotal story, we follow along just fine until we add in this twist of “faith in things unseen.” Most people would consider faith--at best--a nice wishful thought, a hopeful dream, a pleasant fantasy, or a system of religious activities. When locked in a physical battle, the thought of believing in some unseen provision is utterly ridiculous and preposterous. This warrior in the story would be considered whimsical in his response to his apparent defeat. In the same way, the watching world finds it incomprehensible to trust in the unseen. ! The modernists convinced the world that everything could be explained in a laboratory. Love, laughter, joy, depression and pain are all explained in the context of chemicals in the brain which can be easily remedied or manipulated by medicine. The post-modernists are now convincing us that nothing has objective meaning, and everything is interpreted through your own preferential grid; if you want to close your eyes to the reality of the natural world and live in some self-defined reality, good for you. If you want to imagine God as some life-force that sends a tingle down your spine while in some yoga position, they do not protest! Believe whatever, feel whatever, do whatever feels right, and at the end of the day share your experiences with each other; but by no means define anything or stand for objective truth. The modernist makes faith unreasonable, and the postmodernist makes reason unfaithable (ok, I know that isn’t a word, but it makes the point; if you are a stickler for grammatical correctness, try “unbelievable” instead). Regardless, what is a Christian to do? If faith is viewed by the modernist as wishful thinking, and to the postmodernist as subjective, self-defined experience, then how are we to live in the midst of this matrix of deception?

The modernist makes faith unreasonable, and the postmodernist makes reason unfaithable

! The writer of Hebrews gives us Scripture’s only real tangible definition of faith, and declares: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).” Faith is substance? Faith is evidence? What sort of antiquated nonsensicality is this?! Is our faith just wishful thinking in some fantastical outcome? Is it just some ethereal, metaphysical experience that we can later write bad poetry about? Or, is it possible that it is as God’s Word declares: substantial evidence?

! Just a few pages earlier, the writer of Hebrews unveils one of the most foundational truths of the entirety of the Scriptures, “[it was] impossible for God to lie (Hebrews 6:18a).” Thus, applying good old fashioned logic, we can make a pretty massive conclusion: it is an impossibility for God to lie. Meaning we can believe, with unshakeable confidence, that faith is the substance of things hoped for. ! Faith is the grip of the soul upon the realities of eternity. Who God is, what He does and how He works are all what faith clings to without relinquishing. It does not look at the dark and billowing clouds that swirl around to clutter, confuse and confound. The Enemy works overtime to get people to settle for trinkets of earth, and if he cannot accomplish that, he labors to distort the heavenly realities. He doesn’t mind us thinking and pondering God, so long as that god is actually some figment of our imagination. He trembles to consider a man or a woman grasping the knowledge of the Holy One. Thus, the saints must believe God to be all He has revealed Himself to be in His Word. ! When we operate this way, we shall find that nothing can stop, thwart or in any way retard the forward movement of the soul. Our problem spiritually is that we often try to face our difficulties, trials, temptations in the EXTERNAL realm first. That isn’t Christianity, my friends; that is paganism, Islam, Judaism, etc. The secret to mighty, overcoming Christianity is found in 1John 5:4, “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.” !

If we are to overcome every foe, difficulty, trial, and tempest, then we must

first be born of God. You must reckon yourself to be dead, and that Christ is born again within the stable of your soul. Then you are indeed born of God, by water and the Word! As John declares, whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world, it’s difficulties, trials and the blows of the powers of darkness. But, where does the victory come from? Where do we obtain the victory to overcome? Faith. For we truly must live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself for us. ! The absurdity of bending ourselves and seeking to more fully know the Lord, may seem like an absurd way to overcome our difficulties. However, our faith is not just some exercise in spiritual antiquities! It is the mighty force of God’s grace within us to overcome in this world, while we pilgrimage our way through to our Heavenly home!
