Manley Beasley says:
Genuine faith is more than mental assent or an emotional experience. It is the inward response to truth that has been revealed to the heart by the Holy Spirit who quickens and makes our spirits alive.”
Here are the three basic types of faith:
1. The grace of faith
2.The gift of faith
3. The impartation of faith
Faith can never go beyond the revelation of truth to the heart. When the Holy Spirit illumines our minds and hearts regarding a particular matter, we are then given the ability to trust the Lord Jesus to the measure of light that has been revealed.
