Hebrews 11:39-40 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: (40) God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
I believe these verses refer to the time when Jesus shall return and we shall be made like Him.
1th 4:16-17 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: (17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Men of faith have served boldly, even unto death, since this book was first penned. There is no way to name them all here but one thing we must remember. Even though we might think of these men as great men they did not have a thing that we don't have. They just used the faith that God gave them.
Don't try to have great faith. Just exercise the faith you have in a Great God.
