    How do one acquire it; Is it only related to biblical scripture or man daily existence?

      Some people seem to have an unshakable faith in self. You might have an unshakable faith in a spouse, or parent. So yes, I believe it is a term that could describe things in your daily existence outside of religion.

      Elisah:
      Your question is meaningless.
      "Unshakable" is an "absolute." Golly, I'm racking my brain to find an example of an "absolute" and I can't find one...er..eh maybe an "absolute" is an absolute?
      Jeez! I'm "absolutely" confused!  arghhhh!    smile:

      Mans existence.

      Religion, science, mathematics cannot supply it.
      The only place you can attain it, is the source of it.

      Do not confuse faith with feelings or thoughts of having faith.
      To do so, keeps you locked in the cage of duality, choice, concern, questions, answers, decisions.

      Unshakeable faith is the experience that flows directly from spirit to body- body to spirit, without mental interference. Allow your mind to stop thinking, meditate and allow the connection between your spirit and body to happen, constantly, as it did once when you were just a baby, in the womb and then before consciousness/necessity was drilled into your brain through mass media, church, science labs, pills and potions.

      James.

              lol wink


              no-one can be 100% confident in all things, however, to have unshakable faith is to believe in yourself - because there is no-one else but you.

    To all who submitted an answer of advice to my question; The act was one, being an symbolic gesture of that being “the throwing out of the rope to one in distress”. This showing that G-d resides within each one of you. For, one whom answer to the call of distress of another is made great in the eye's of G-d. No, there is no distress upon me, be to the Glory of my L-rd Yeshua. Not at the present! I merely wanted to hear the understanding of the giving topic from various sources. I found each response grounded in some truth.

    Unshakable faith, is something which has to be acquired; Be it spiritual or within our earthly lives. It is the faith grounded by adversity (Trials of Fire), (Struggle).

    By earthy principles, for example: One may have been born with everything giving of them; Never once having to discern the hardships faced by much of humanity. In contrast, another has not only faced such hardships but know of nothing else. The one of benefit has been made “soft”, the spirit being one of “weakness”. The less fortunate in-turn has developed a “defiant strength”, “A resilient spirit”; If tragedy strikes, the one most likely to overcome would be the one having the “defiant strength”, “The resilient spirit” because it was acquired through “struggle”.

    By spiritual context, by way of G-d; May it be the rich or the poor, each man being the same. The man choosing by G-d must under-go many trials to strengthen the spirit, making one faith unshakable. G-d keeps this not a secret. G-d word concerning this topic is offered through many scriptures. Several can be sourced in: (Romans 5:3-5), (Hebrews 12:3-13), (1 Peter 1:7). To be worthy of G-d favor, one must become a fearless, loyal soldier; Even the earthy man of the world train their men for battle. But G-d, through one's strong faith from the many trials will build one up in strength by bestowing His visions and revelations of His Glory to them as was done to all those whom of ancient. There are many examples, one such being of Paul (2 Corinthians 12:2-5). Another scripture of G-d strengthening being described through suffering appears from King David (Psalms 92:10).All the men of ancient giving of G-d acquired “unshakable faith”. It was to obtain the resilient spirit; The un-yielding faith. “The nothing you do to me can penetrate, for I have been made numb”! The G-d giving one of unshakable faith has frightened and bewildered “Mighty Empires”.

    I would like to share a situation which accrued many years ago related to this topic!
    There arose a crisis in Uganda, Africa during the period of the (70's). The muslim military dictator and President of Uganda “Idi Amin” made law that all Europeans and Christians be them African or European shall be put to death. He allowed no one to leave. There was the testimony of one African child age approximately (7) years old who was allowed to leave the capital of Uganda, Africa by permission of the dictator because as was quoted by the dictator “The boy loyalty has freed him”. The testimony of the boy was that: “The Christian Church he would attend was invaded by Idi Amin and several of his troops. There were approximately (36) in attendance. Idi Amin addressed the congregation saying “All who denounce their G-d move to one side and you will live. Those who do not will die”. The whole congregation moved to one side except the one boy, the one wearing the tattered clothing. It was noted that Idi Amin looked with surprise wearing a smile. Those whom denounced G-d, Idi Amin turned to them and said “because of your disloyalty to your G-d you will die for had you choosing your G-d, I would have respected the loyalty”. The little boy was told to leave the church for his life was spared because of his loyalty to his G-d for Idi Amin said to the boy “I admire unshakable faith”. All the others were executed. This factorial narrative gives the purpose of G-d spoken words giving of the scriptures submitted.

    The adversary (satan) knows man true devotion of faith is un-covered through “adversity”, which is G-d reasoning in strengthening those he choose as His own.

    Shalom
