There are two types of believing recorded in Holy Scripture:
(i) Believing after seeing – Less Blessed – NOT Faith
“And this is the Will of Him that sent Me, that every one which SEETH the Son, and BELIEVETH on Him, may have everlasting life: and I will Raise him up at the Last Day.” (John 6:40, KJV)
A Famous phrase related to it: “seeing is believing”
(ii) Believing without/before seeing – More Blessed – Faith
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1, KJV)
“For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?” (Romans 8:24, KJV)
“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (2 Corinthians 5:7, KJV)
A Famous phrase related to it: “Believing is Seeing”
To be ‘More Beautiful’, let us Believe Him and His Majestic Words ‘without seeing itself’.
“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” (Mark 9:23, KJV)
Blessed be Lord Jesus Christ, the Incomprehensible Saviour of the World!
