Afraid or Not Afraid?–Hebrews 11:27

In Hebrews 10:35 the readers are called not to throw away their confidence, for those who persevere will receive the promise, the focus of which is the second coming of Jesus and final salvation (10:36-39). How is this possible? By faith! Heb 11:1 stresses that faith is “seeing” the unseen. Faith focuses on God (11:6) and endures just as the heroes of faith have endured. The most famous among these heroes of faith were Abraham and Moses.
