Faith

First mention of Faith in Bible were 2 men who walked faithfully with God.

After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away. This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. (Genesis 5:22,24, 6:9)

Then he blessed Joseph and said “May the God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked faithfully, the God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day, (Genesis 48:15)

Faith and Righteousness

Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness (Genesis 15:6)

Faith and Covenant

When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless. Then I will make my covenant between me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.” (Genesis 17:1-2)

Faith tested

He said to his servants, “Stay here with the donkey while I and the boy go over there. We will worship and then we will come back to you.” (Genesis 22:5)

Faithful towards Human Master

“Now if you will show kindness and faithfulness to my master, tell me; and if not, tell me, so I may know which way to turn.” (Genesis 24:49)

Staff (physical) and Faith (spiritual)

But take this staff in your hand so you can perform the signs with it.”

 So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey and started back to Egypt. And he took the staff of God in his hand. (Exodus 4:17,20)

And when the Israelites saw the mighty hand of the Lord displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord and put their trust in him and in Moses his servant. (Exodus 14:31)

If she does not please the master who has selected her for himself, he must let her be redeemed. He has no right to sell her to foreigners, because he has broken faith with her. (Exodus 21:8)

6 And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, 7 maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” (Exodus 34:6-7)

 

But this is not true of my servant Moses; he is faithful in all my house. (Numbers 12:7)
