The word "faith" is used almost exclusively in the New Testament where many reason that faith means the belief and trust in someone or something without seeing it or having any explicit proof. However, contrary to such reasoning, "faith" is referring to the knowledge gained through revelation, from going within. The Faith is synonymous with "the knowledge" contained within the revelations received from God.
Faith is the "means" by which we are born again of a righteous mind. "Continue in the faith, that we enter into the kingdom of God." (Acts 14:22) "We are raised with Jesus through the faith of the operation of God." (Col 2:12) "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal Life." (1Tim 6:12) "The just live by faith." (Heb 10:38)
"Before faith came we were kept under the law; shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed. The law is not of faith; your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the knowledge of God . . . however, because they sought God not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law, they stumbled at the stumblingstone (Jesus)." (Gal 3:23,12 ; 1Cor 2:5 ; Rm 9:32)
"FAITH is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen, and so we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen, the things which are eternal." (Heb 11:1 ; 2Cor 4:18)
Now to God, that is of power to stablish you according to revelation; the mystery which has been kept secret since the world began; revelation, which God gave unto Jesus, "for I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it but by revelation." (Gal 1:12) Revelation, the way to the Tree of Life and the hidden wisdom: "and so the church was stablished in the faith, and increased in number daily." (Acts 16:5)
Through Faith the worlds were formed by God, such that things which are seen are made of things which 'do not' appear. While reason can be used to achieve knowledge and an understanding of this world, faith is the knowledge and understanding of the other unseen world; revelations from God. That without faith it is impossible to know God; "he that cometh to God, must 'believe' that God exists and that God is a rewarder of them who diligently seek him:" (Heb 11:6) "For we are saved by faith; it is the gift of God." (Eph 2:8)
The Faith of Revelation is the mystery kept secret since the world began - and the secret continues today, holding the people in darkness through the reasoning chains of religion. "For a long season, Israel has been without the true God." (2Ch 15:3) And today, as it was written long ago, "in the later times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and the doctrines of devils." (1Tim 4:1)
"Stand fast in one spirit, with one mind, striving together for the faith of the gospel; for the WORD of God is quick and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to dividing asunder of soul and spirit. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth, that we may receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." (Phil 1:27 ; Heb 4:12 ; 2Tim 2:15 ; Gal 3:14)
"That God may give unto you, in the spirit of revelation, the knowledge of him; for except a man be born of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit (notice Spirit and spirit): eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath entered into the soul of men, the deep things of God, the things of God which no man can know, only the spirit which is in man." (Eph 1:17 ; Jn 3:5,4:24 ; 1Cor 2:9-11)
"Know ye not that the Spirit of God dwells in your temple? That he that is joined unto God is one spirit? That by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body; we having the same spirit of faith." (1Cor 3:16,6:7,12:13 ; 2Cor 4:13)
God involves a truth uncomprehensable by reason. The natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God, neither can he know them because they are 'spiritually' discerned (1Cor 2:14).
Remember, it's all within you, not outwardly into this world or the realms of the soul. The truth is accessed through revelation, the faith of which is attained in the child-like state of consciousness after entering into the kingdom of God that is within. Jesus having abolished the enmity, and the law of comandments, made in himself of twain, one new man." (Eph 2:15) Thy Faith has made thee whole.
Through faith and patience Jesus' disciples inherit the promises, by holding the mystery of faith in conscience: remembering without ceasing, the work of faith. Walk after the Spirit; be renewed in the Spirit of your mind. The Spirit is Life because of righteousness. (Rm 8:10-11 ; 2Cor 4:13)
