In the New Testament of grace, we can only please GOD through our faith. (Hebrews 11:6)

Hebrews 11:6 (Amplified Bible)

11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

Because in these two qualities: a worshipper of GOD, and a hoper in GOD needed faith to function.

A. A worshipper - one that fears Him reverently and worshipfully

"The Lord takes pleasure in those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him,"

Pleasure or "ratsah" in Hebrew meaning:

1. to be pleased with

2. acceptable, accomplish, set affection, approve, consent with, delight

3. enjoy, reconcile self, observe, pardon, pleasure

Before the word "them" it has the signature of the ALPHA and OMEGA that is the LORD JESUS CHRIST - ALEPH-TAV, meaning GOD is pleased with people that has a mark of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Born again is both a worshipper and a hoper in GOD.

Psalms 147:11 (King James Version)

147:11 The LORD taketh pleasure in {ALEPH-TAV} them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.

Fear or "yare" in Hebrew meaning:

1. fearing

2. morally reverent

Psalms 35:27 (Amplified Bible)

35:27 Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.

Psalms 149:4 (Amplified Bible)

149:4 For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation and adorn the wretched with victory.

Proverbs 31:30 (Amplified Bible)

31:30 Charm and grace are deceptive, and beauty is vain [because it is not lasting], but a woman who reverently and worshipfully fears the Lord, she shall be praised!

Proverbs 11:20 (Amplified Bible)

11:20 They who are willfully contrary in heart are extremely disgusting and shamefully vile in the eyes of the Lord, but such as are blameless and wholehearted in their ways are His delight!

Zephaniah 3:17 (Amplified Bible)

3:17 The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.

The born again believer or born again CHRISTian has two names namely Beulah (to be master) in which the LORD JESUS is our Master and Hephzibah (my delight) in which we are the LORD's delight.

Isaiah 62:4 (Amplified Bible)

62:4 You [Judah] shall no more be termed Forsaken, nor shall your land be called Desolate any more. But you shall be called Hephzibah [My delight is in her], and your land be called Beulah [married]; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married [owned and protected by the Lord].

B. A hoper - one that hopes in GOD's mercy and loving-kindness

"in those who hope in His mercy and loving-kindness."

Psalms 33:18 (Amplified Bible)

33:18 Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness,

1 Peter 1:13 (Amplified Bible)

1:13 So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed.

1 Peter 1:17 (Amplified Bible)

1:17 And if you call upon Him as [your] Father Who judges each one impartially according to what he does, [then] you should conduct yourselves with true reverence throughout the time of your temporary residence [on the earth, whether long or short].
