In The Book of Hebrews, Chapter 11 is known as ‘The Great Hall of Faith,’ which highlights the ordinary men, women and children of God, who acted out their faith with extraordinary works (that were prepared for them to do, before the foundations of the earth were laid), on what William Shakespeare called “the worlds’ stage.” These Living Words, from Genesis to Revelation, were written down, as examples for us and ‘The Word,’ Who became flesh, Jesus, was sent, by The Father, to ‘show’ us ‘The Way,’ to “Go and do likewise!”
Now, OBVIOUSLY, we could not do such things or accomplish such tasks, without help from above, or else Jesus would have never had to come to this world, die for our sins on The Cross and be raised from the dead! Even the Apostles needed God’s Word, breathed upon by His Holy Spirit, in order to go forth and continue the work of the church. Not only do we see Jesus breathing on them, in The Gospel of John, commanding them to “Receive The Holy Spirit,” but even after that, telling them to wait in Jerusalem, until they receive The Power from on high, which enabled them to be 'witnesses’ of and for His Kingdom.
Read Hebrews, Chapter 11 for yourself, because you need to know and understand that they, without us, “should not be made perfect,” because we ALL must come in the unity of the faith, to obtain the fullness of Christ! - Ephesians 4:13.
