Scripture Reading: Heb. 11:1, 6; 12:1-2; Rom. 10:17
Heb 11:1    Now faith is the substantiation of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Heb 11:6    But without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to Him, for he who comes forward to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Heb 12:1    Therefore let us also, having so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, put away every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us and run with endurance the race which is set before us,
Heb 12:2    Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down on the right hand of the throne of God.
Rom 10:17    So faith comes out of hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
 
 
I.    “Therefore let us also, having so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, put away every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us and run with endurance the race which is set before us”—Heb. 12:1:
Heb 12:1    Therefore let us also, having so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, put away every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us and run with endurance the race which is set before us,
A.    The cloud is for leading people to follow the Lord (Num. 9:15-22), and the Lord is in the cloud to be with the people (Exo. 13:21-22); in Greek witnesses implies the sense of martyrs (Acts 1:8):
Num  9:15    And on the day that the tabernacle was set up, the cloud covered the tabernacle, the Tent of the Testimony; and in the evening it was like the appearance of fire over the tabernacle until morning.
Num  9:16    So it was always; the cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
Num  9:17    And whenever the cloud was taken up from over the tent, then after that the children of Israel set out; and in the place where the cloud settled, there the children of Israel encamped.
Num  9:18    At the commandment of Jehovah the children of Israel set out, and at the commandment of Jehovah they encamped; as long as the cloud settled upon the tabernacle, they remained encamped.
Num  9:19    Even when the cloud extended its time over the tabernacle for many days, the children of Israel kept the charge of Jehovah and did not set out.
Num  9:20    If sometimes the cloud was upon the tabernacle a few days, according to the commandment of Jehovah they remained encamped; then at the commandment of Jehovah they set out.
Num  9:21    If sometimes the cloud remained from evening until morning, when the cloud was taken up in the morning, they set out; or if it remained a day and a night, when the cloud was taken up, they set out.
Num  9:22    Whether it was two days or a month or a longer time that the cloud extended its time over the tabernacle and settled above it, the children of Israel remained encamped and did not set out; but when it was taken up, they set out.
Exo 13:21    And Jehovah went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them on the way and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might go by day and by night.
Exo 13:22    Neither the pillar of cloud by day nor the pillar of fire by night departed from before the people.
Acts 1:8    But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
1.    With the people of faith, we can have the Lord’s presence and His leading; all the people of faith, the church people, are the cloud; the best way to seek the Lord’s presence is to come to the church.
2.    If anyone is seeking the Lord’s leading, he must follow the cloud, the church; the Lord is in the cloud, meaning that He is with the people of faith.
3.    Since we are the people of faith, we are today’s cloud, and people can follow the Lord by following us; those who seek Him can find His presence with us—cf. 1 Cor. 14:24-25; Psa. 36:8-9; 16:11.
1 Cor 14:24    But if all prophesy and some unbeliever or unlearned person enters, he is convicted by all, he is examined by all;
1 Cor 14:25    The secrets of his heart become manifest; and so falling on his face, he will worship God, declaring that indeed God is among you.
Psa 36:8    They are saturated with the fatness of Your house, / And You cause them to drink of the river of Your pleasures.
Psa 36:9    For with You is the fountain of life; / In Your light we see light.
Psa 16:11    You will make known to me the path of life; / In Your presence is fullness of joy; / At Your right hand there are pleasures forever.
B.    The Christian life is a race; every saved Christian must run the race to win the prize (1 Cor. 9:24), not salvation in the common sense (Eph. 2:8; 1 Cor. 3:15) but a reward in a special sense (Heb. 10:35; 1 Cor. 3:14); the apostle Paul ran the race and won the prize (9:26-27; Phil. 3:13-14; 2 Tim. 4:7-8):
1 Cor 9:24    Do you not know that those who run on a racecourse all run, but one receives the prize? Run in this way, that you may lay hold.
Eph 2:8    For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of yourselves; it is the gift of God;
1 Cor 3:15    If anyone's work is consumed, he will suffer loss, but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.
Heb 10:35    Do not cast away therefore your boldness, which has great reward.
1 Cor 3:14    If anyone's work which he has built upon the foundation remains, he will receive a reward;
1 Cor 9:26    I therefore run in this way, not as though without a clear aim; I box in this way, not as though beating the air;
1 Cor 9:27    But I buffet my body and make it my slave, lest perhaps having preached to others, I myself may become disapproved.
Phil 3:13    Brothers, I do not account of myself to have laid hold; but one thing I do: Forgetting the things which are behind and stretching forward to the things which are before,
Phil 3:14    I pursue toward the goal for the prize to which God in Christ Jesus has called me upward.
2 Tim 4:7    I have fought the good fight; I have finished the course; I have kept the faith.
2 Tim 4:8    Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, with which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will recompense me in that day, and not only me but also all those who have loved His appearing.
1.    An encumbrance is a weight, burden, or impediment; the runners of the race strip off every unnecessary weight, every encumbering burden, that nothing may impede them from winning the race.
2.    The unique entangling sin in this context was the willful sin of forsaking the assembling together with the saints, of giving up the new covenant way in God’s economy, and of going back to Judaism (Heb. 10:26); both the encumbering weight and the entangling sin would have frustrated the Hebrew believers and restrained them from running the heavenly race in the new covenant way of following Jesus.
Heb 10:26    For when we sin willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice of bulls and goats for sins,
C.    We need to run with endurance, asking the Lord to direct our hearts into the love of God and into the endurance of Christ—2 Thes. 3:5:
1 Thes 3:5    Because of this, when I also could bear it no longer, I sent to find out concerning your faith, lest perhaps the tempter had tempted you and our labor would be in vain.
1.    This is our love toward God, issuing from the love of God (1 John 4:19), which has been poured out in our hearts (Rom. 5:5).
1 John 4:19    We love because He first loved us.
Rom 5:5    And hope does not put us to shame, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
2.    This is to endure with the endurance of Christ that we have enjoyed and experienced—cf. Rev. 1:9.
Rev 1:9    I John, your brother and fellow partaker in the tribulation and kingdom and endurance in Jesus, was on the island called Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.
 
II. “Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down on the right hand of the throne of God”—Heb. 12:2:
Heb 12:2    Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down on the right hand of the throne of God.
A.    We need to look away unto Jesus with undivided attention by turning away from every other object; Jesus is the Author of faith, the Originator, the Inaugurator, the source, and the cause of faith:
1.    The wonderful Jesus, who is enthroned in heaven and crowned with glory and honor (2:9), is the greatest attraction in the universe.
Heb 2:9    But we see Jesus, who was made a little inferior to the angels because of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death on behalf of everything.
2.    He is like an immense magnet drawing all His seekers to Him—S. S. 1:4; Hosea 11:4; Jer. 31:3:
S S 1:4    Draw me; we will run after you—The king has brought me into his chambers—/ We will be glad and rejoice in you; / We will extol your love more than wine. / Rightly do they love you.
Hosea 11:4    I drew them with cords of a man, / With bands of love; And I was to them like those / Who lift off the yoke on their jaws; / And I gently caused them to eat.
Jer 31:3    Jehovah appeared to me from afar, saying, / Indeed I have loved you with an eternal love, / Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.
a.    It is by being attracted by His charming beauty (loveliness, pleasantness, delightfulness) that we look away from all things other than Him—Psa. 27:4.
Psa 27:4    One thing I have asked from Jehovah; / That do I seek: / To dwell in the house of Jehovah / All the days of my life, / To behold the beauty of Jehovah, / And to inquire in His temple.
b.    Without such a charming object, how could we look away from so many distracting things on earth?
B.    The faith of the believers is actually not their own faith but Christ entering into them to be their faith—Rom. 3:22 and footnote 1; Gal. 2:16 and footnote 1:
Rom 3:22    Even the righteousness of God through the 1faith of Jesus Christ to all those who believe, for there is no distinction;
Footnote 1    
    Or, faith in Jesus Christ. This faith refers to the faith of Jesus Christ in us, which has become the faith by which we believe in Him, as in v. 26; Gal. 2:16, 20; 3:22; Eph. 3:12; and Phil. 3:9.
    Faith has an object, and it issues from its object. This object is Jesus, who is God incarnate. When man hears Him, knows Him, appreciates Him, and treasures Him, He causes faith to be generated in man, enabling man to believe in Him. Thus, He becomes the faith in man by which man believes in Him. Hence, this faith becomes the faith in Him, and it is also the faith that belongs to Him.
    In God's New Testament economy, God desires that man believe in Jesus, who is God incarnate. If man does not believe in Him, he commits the unique sin before God (John 16:9). However, if man believes in Him, he is righteous to the uttermost before God, and God reckons this faith as his righteousness. At the same time, this faith brings its object, that is, this One who is God incarnate, into those who believe in Him. He is God's righteousness, and God has given Him as righteousness to those who are indwelt by Him (Jer. 23:6). All this is out of, and depends on, the faith that is in Him and of Him (Heb. 12:2).
Gal 2:16    And knowing that a man is not justified out of works of law, but through 1faith in Jesus Christ, we also have believed into Christ Jesus that we might be justified out of faith in Christ and not out of the works of law, because out of the works of law no flesh will be justified.
Footnote 1
    Lit., faith of Jesus Christ. See note 221 in Rom. 3. Faith in Jesus Christ denotes an organic union with Him through believing. This is related to the believers' appreciation of the person of the Son of God as the most precious One. The believers are infused with the preciousness of Christ through the gospel preached to them. This Christ becomes in them the faith by which they believe and the capacity to believe through their appreciation of Him. This faith creates an organic union in which they and Christ are one.
1.    Our believing is our appreciation of Christ as a reaction to His attraction— Rom. 10:17.
Rom 10:17    So faith comes out of hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
2.    In our natural man we have no believing ability; we do not have faith by ourselves.
3.    The faith by which we are saved is the precious faith that we have received from the Lord, the God-allotted faith—2 Pet. 1:1; Col. 1:12.
2 Pet 1:1    Simon Peter, a slave and apostle of Jesus Christ, to those who have been allotted faith equally precious as ours in the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:
Col 1:12    Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you for a share of the allotted portion of the saints in the light;
4.    When we look away unto Jesus, He as the life-giving Spirit (1 Cor. 15:45b) transfuses us with Himself, His believing element.
1 Cor 15:45b    …the last Adam became a life-giving Spirit.
5.    This faith is not of ourselves but of Him who imparts Himself as the believing element into us that He may believe for us.
6.    Hence, Christ Himself is our faith; we live by Him as our faith, that is, by His faith (Gal. 2:20), not our own.
Gal 2:20    I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
C.    Faith is a substantiating ability, a sixth sense, the sense by which we substantiate, give substance to, the things unseen or hoped for—Heb. 11:1:
Heb 11:1    Now faith is the substantiation of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
1.    Substantiating is the ability that enables us to realize a substance.
2.    The function of our five senses is to substantiate the things of the outside world, transferring all the objective items into us to become our subjective experience.
3.    As the eye is to seeing, the ear to hearing, and the nose to smelling, so faith, our spirit of faith, is the organ whereby we substantiate everything in the unseen spiritual world into us—2 Cor. 4:13:
2 Cor 4:13    And having the same spirit of faith according to that which is written, "I believed, therefore I spoke," we also believe, therefore we also speak,
a.    We must exercise our spirit of faith, our mingled spirit, to believe and to speak the things we have experienced of the Lord.
b.    Faith is in our spirit, which is mingled with the Holy Spirit, not in our mind; doubts are in our mind.
4.    We do not regard, look at, the things which are seen but the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal—v. 18:
2 Cor 4:18    Because we do not regard the things which are seen but the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
a.    The Christian life is a life of things unseen—Rom. 8:24-25; Heb. 11:27; 1 Pet. 1:8; Gal. 6:10.
Rom 8:24    For we were saved in hope. But a hope that is seen is not hope, for who hopes for what he sees?
Rom 8:25    But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly await it through endurance.
Heb 11:27    By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king, for he persevered as one seeing the unseen One.
1 Pet 1:8    Whom having not seen, you love; into whom though not seeing Him at present, yet believing, you exult with joy that is unspeakable and full of glory,
Gal 6:10    So then, as we have the opportunity, let us do what is good toward all, but especially toward those of the household of the faith.
b.    The degradation of the church is the degradation from unseen things to seen things.
c.    The Lord’s recovery is to recover His church from things seen to things unseen.
5.    Faith assures us of the things not seen, convincing us of what we do not see; therefore, it is the evidence, the proof, of things unseen.
D.    Faith is to believe that God is:
1.    Without faith it is impossible to please God, to make God happy—Heb. 11:6a.
Heb 11:6a    But without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to Him,…
2.     “He who comes forward to God must believe that He is”—v. 6b; cf. Gen. 5:22-24:
Heb 11:6b    …for he who comes forward to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Gen 5:22    And Enoch walked with God after he had begotten Methuselah three hundred years, and he begot more sons and daughters.
Gen 5:23    And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty-five years.
Gen 5:24    And Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.
a.    To believe that God is, is to believe that He is everything to us and that we are nothing—John 8:58; Eccl. 1:2.
John 8:58    Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Before Abraham came into being, I am.
Eccl 1:2    Vanity of vanities, says the Preacher; / Vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
b.    To believe that God is implies that we are not; He must be the only One, the unique One, in everything, and we must be nothing in everything— Heb. 11:5.
Heb 11:5    By faith Enoch was translated so that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For before his translation he obtained the testimony that he had been well pleasing to God.
c.    To believe that God is, is to deny our self; in the whole universe He is, and all of us are nothing—Luke 9:23.
Luke 9:23    And He said to them all, If anyone wants to come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me.
d.    I should not be anything; I should not exist; only He should exist—“It is no longer I who live, but it is Christ”—Gal. 2:20.
Gal 2:20    I am crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
e.    At his conversion the Lord told Saul of Tarsus, “I am Jesus”—Acts 9:5:
Acts 9:5    And he said, Who are You, Lord? And He said, I am Jesus, whom you persecute.
1)    The Lord was saying, “I am the great I Am; I am the One who is; you must believe that I am and you are not.”
2)    Eventually, Saul was over, and Paul came up—13:9.
Acts 13:9    But Saul, who is also Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him
f.    This is faith—“O the joy of having nothing and being nothing, seeing nothing but a living Christ in glory, and being careful for nothing but His interests down here” (J. N. Darby).
E.    Jesus is the Perfecter, the Finisher, the Completer, of our faith—Heb. 12:2a:
Heb 12:2a    Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, …
1.    As we look away unto Him continually, He will finish and complete the faith that we need for the running of the heavenly race—v. 1.
Heb 12:1    Therefore let us also, having so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, put away every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us and run with endurance the race which is set before us,
2.    We all have the same faith in quality, but the quantity of faith we have depends upon how much we contact the living God so that we may have Him increased in us—Rom. 12:3:
Rom 12:3    For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think, but to think so as to be sober-minded, as God has apportioned to each a measure of faith.
a.    Faith in the progressing stage comes through our contacting the Triune God, who is faith in us—1 Thes. 5:17.
1 Thes 5:17    Unceasingly pray,
b.    The way to receive such a faith is to contact its source, the Lord, the processed and consummated God, by calling on Him, praying to Him, and pray-reading His word—Heb. 4:16; Rom. 10:12; 2 Tim. 2:22; Eph. 6:17-18; Heb. 4:2.
Heb 4:16    Let us therefore come forward with boldness to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace for timely help.
Rom 10:12    For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord is Lord of all and rich to all who call upon Him;
2 Tim 2:22    But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
Eph 6:17    And receive the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which Spirit is the word of God,
Eph 6:18    By means of all prayer and petition, praying at every time in spirit and watching unto this in all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints,
Heb 4:2    For indeed we have had the good news announced to us, even as they also; but the word heard did not profit them, not being mixed together with faith in those who heard.
c.    When we contact Him, He is overflowing within us, and there is a mutuality of faith among us; we are encouraged through the faith that is in one another—Rom. 1:12; Philem. 6.
Rom 1:12    That is, that I with you may be encouraged among you through the faith which is in one another, both yours and mine.
Philem 6    That the fellowship of your faith may become effective in the full knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ.
3.    Our regenerated spirit, our spirit of faith, is the victory that overcomes the Satan-organized-and-usurped world—1 John 5:4; John 3:6; 2 Cor. 4:13; 1 John 5:18.
1 John 5:4    For everything that has been begotten of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory which has overcome the world-our faith.
John 3:6    That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
2 Cor 4:13    And having the same spirit of faith according to that which is written, "I believed, therefore I spoke," we also believe, therefore we also speak,
1 John 5:18    We know that everyone who is begotten of God does not sin, but he who has been begotten of God keeps himself, and the evil one does not touch him.
4.    The great irrepressible and unlimited power of faith motivates thousands to suffer for the Lord, risk their lives, and become overcoming sent ones and martyrs for the carrying out of God’s eternal economy, which is in faith—Luke 18:8; Phil. 2:20; Rom. 16:3-4; Acts 20:24; 1 Tim. 1:4; Heb. 12:3; cf. Judg. 8:4.
Luke 18:8    I tell you that He will carry out their avenging quickly. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?
Phil 2:20    For I have no one like-souled who will genuinely care for what concerns you;
Rom 16:3    Greet Prisca and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus,
Rom 16:4    Who risked their own necks for my life, to whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles;
Acts 20:24    But I consider my life of no account as if precious to myself, in order that I may finish my course and the ministry which I have received from the Lord Jesus to solemnly testify of the gospel of the grace of God.
1 Tim 1:4    Nor to give heed to myths and unending genealogies, which produce questionings rather than God's economy, which is in faith.
Heb 12:3    For compare Him who has endured such contradiction by sinners against Himself, so that you may not grow weary, fainting in your souls.
Judg 8:4    Then Gideon came to the Jordan and crossed over, he and the three hundred men with him, weary yet pursuing.
F.    According to Hebrews 12:2, for the joy set before Him, Jesus endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down on the right hand of the throne of God:
Heb 12:2    Looking away unto Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down on the right hand of the throne of God.
1.    The Lord Jesus knew that through His death He would be glorified in resurrection (Luke 24:25-26) and that His divine life would be released to produce many brothers for His expression (John 12:23-24; Rom. 8:29); for the joy set before Him (John 16:20-22), He despised the shame and volunteered to be delivered to the Satan-usurped leaders of the Jews and Gentiles and condemned by them to death.
Luke 24:25    And He said to them, O foolish and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken!
Luke 24:26    Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and enter into His glory?
John 12:23    And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified.
John 12:24    Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless the grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it abides alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.
Rom 8:29    Because those whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the Firstborn among many brothers;
John 16:20    Truly, truly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
John 16:21    A woman, when she gives birth, has sorrow because her hour has come; but when she brings forth the little child, she no longer remembers the affliction because of the joy that a man has been born into the world.
John 16:22    Therefore you also now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and no one takes your joy away from you.
2.    Therefore, God highly exalted Him to the heavens, seated Him at His right hand (Mark 16:19; Acts 2:33-35), gave Him the name above every name (Phil. 2:9-10), made Him both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36), and crowned Him with glory and honor (Heb. 2:9).
Mark 16:19    So then the Lord Jesus, after speaking to them, was taken up into heaven and sat at the right hand of God.
Acts 2:33    Therefore having been exalted to the right hand of God and having received the promise of the Holy Spirit from the Father, He has poured out this which you both see and hear.
Acts 2:34    For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself says, "The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at My right hand
Acts 2:35    Until I set Your enemies as a footstool for Your feet."
Phil 2:9    Therefore also God highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name,
Phil 2:10    That in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
Acts 2:36    Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made Him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you have crucified.
Heb 2:9    But we see Jesus, who was made a little inferior to the angels because of the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death on behalf of everything.
3.    If we look away unto Him as such a wonderful and all-inclusive One, He will minister heaven, life, and strength to us, transfusing and infusing us with all that He is, that we may be able to run the heavenly race and live the heavenly life on earth; in this way He will carry us through all the lifelong pathway and lead and bring us into glory—v. 10; 2 Cor. 3:16, 18; 1 Pet. 5:4; 2 Tim. 4:8.
Heb 2:10    For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and through whom are all things, in leading many sons into glory, to make the Author of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
2 Cor 3:16    But whenever their heart turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.
2 Cor 3:18    But we all with unveiled face, beholding and reflecting like a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord Spirit.
1 Pet 5:4    And when the Chief Shepherd is manifested, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.
2 Tim 4:8    Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, with which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will recompense me in that day, and not only me but also all those who have loved His appearing.
