The faith of the world befor Christ. 1. people was communicating to God through prophet.
2. Ignorant was the major encumbrance in the world them,The book of Hosea 4:6. Says. MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROY FOR THE LACK OF KNOWLADGE... Them Jeremiah 3:13. HAPPY IS THE MAN THAT GETTETH WISDOM, AND THE MAN THAT GETTETH UNDERSTANDING.
3. The Urge, impel and the eagerness to see the messiah, who will bring Everlasting Peace to the world (Isaiah.9:6).And redeem the world.......

While the faith After Christ.
1.With pure heart, you can communicate to God through Jesus Christ. ' I AM THE WAY THE TRUT AND THE LIGHT, NO ONE COME TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH ME.
2. The death of Jesus Christ brought salvation to man, And to redeem man from all sin.
3. The understanding of God is clearly defined through Christ.The problem now is not fully ignorance but doctrine.
Peace be to you all.

The just shall live by faith

Habakkuk 2:4 and Romans 1:17 both state that the just shall live by faith. In Habakkuk the NKJV states "the just shall live by his faith". A literal translation is "a steadfast reliance on the Lord, a trust that perseverses". Isn't faith believing that God will do what God has said he will do? See Romans 4:19-23. This is the classic definition of faith. Abraham believed That God was able to do what God said he would do. And how did he come to believe because God told him or stated another way God's word(s). How were the old testament people suppopse to believe by coming to faith through God's word. If one could do it they all had the ablitiy to.

Jesus taught it was the condition of the heart and that the scribes and pharasis missed the point of the law and made the old covenant a covenant of works where as it was intended to show that man can not live up to God's standards and need a savior, which the Isrealites looked for and are still looking for. The old testament taught the Isrealites to loo for a savior in many places but i will just mention Isiah 53.

Before the law or the writen word of God i believe that all these things were passed down from genertation to generation. In Job 19:25-27 job says that he knows his redemer lives and that even after he dies he will see Him face to face. (Job is the oldest known book of the bible)Job performed sacrifices for his children ( the prays of a righteouis man...). If you do the math you will see that Adam and Noah were alive at the same time. There is about a 35 year lap and how did Noah know to perform sacrifices. If Adam lived for almost a thousand years how many generations did he tell his stort to? How many people did he tell about sacrifice and faith? Did he not tell these things to Cain and Abel, and one believed and one did not?

The just always lived by faith and always will. They believe that God will do what he says he will do!
