Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced - the three levels of Faith.
A beginner's faith is the faith from when you are born. It is based on the accumulation of knowledge and experience; you see a plane fly or ride on that plane and you have faith that the plane will fly.
Psalms 100:4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.
Adam lost revelation knowledge when he sinned.
Rom 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
Rom 8:8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Here is how we can get revelation knowledge or a relationship with God that exceeds any in this world:
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
So you need faith to be saved, we need to hear the word to grow in faith.
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luke 4:19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Christ means anoint, anointed or anointing.
Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
“As many as I love”
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
“I rebuke” points out the errors in us.
“and chasten:” this is to educate a new way.
“Be zealous” this means have a new heart for the Lord
“Therefore, and repent” to change our direction.
Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus for all wants to help show us our errors, help us change, have a new heart towards the Lord and end up on the straight path.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
In verse 1 God created (or formed), so the earth was with form in verse 2, so what was without form? What the earth was created for, US. And after we were formed we sinned and a void was in us. Darkness is evil so there was evil was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit moved over the FACE of the waters (we are mostly made up of water.

2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
2Co 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Heb 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
If you want to bless others pass on what you learn here, find a person who is hungry and feed them, without clothes and cloth them, without shelter and give them shelter, we do this and have found that it is not just a blesssing but an awesome way for them to ask why and that opens the door to share. People do not care how much you know or who you know until they know how much you care.
