Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g4102 Greek: pistis

Assurance, Assure, Assuredly:

"faith," has the secondary meaning of "an assurance or guarantee," e.g., Act 17:31; by raising Christ from the dead, God has given "assurance" that the world will be judged by Him (the AV margin, "offered faith" does not express the meaning). Cp. 1Ti 5:12, where "faith" means "pledge."
See BELIEF, FAITH, FIDELITY.

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g4136 Greek: plerophoria

Assurance, Assure, Assuredly:

"a fullness, abundance," also means "full assurance, entire confidence;" lit., a "full-carrying" (pleros, "full," phero, "to carry"). Some explain it as full fruitfulness (cp. RV, "fullness" in Hbr 6:11). In 1Th 1:5 it describes the willingness and freedom of spirit enjoyed by those who brought the Gospel to Thessalonica; in Col 2:2, the freedom of mind and confidence resulting from an understanding in Christ; in Hbr 6:11 (AV, "full assurance," RV, "fullness"), the engrossing effect of the expectation of the fulfillment of God's promises; in Hbr 10:22, the character of the faith by which we are to draw near to God.
See FULLNESS.

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g5287 Greek: hupostasis

Assurance, Assure, Assuredly:

lit., "a standing under, support" (hupo, "under," histemi, "to stand"), hence, an "assurance," is so rendered in Hbr 11:1, RV, for AV, "substance." It here may signify a title-deed, as giving a guarantee, or reality.
See CONFIDENCE, PERSON, SUBSTANCE.

Note: In Act 16:10, for the AV (of sumbibazomai), "assuredly gathering," see CONCLUDE.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g4104 Greek: pistoo

Assurance, Assure, Assuredly:

"to trust or give assurance to" (cp. A, No. 1), has a secondary meaning, in the Passive Voice, "to be assured of," 2Ti 3:14.

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g4135 Greek: plerophoreo

Assurance, Assure, Assuredly:

akin to A, No. 2, "to bring in full measure, to fulfill," also signifies "to be fully assured," Rom 4:21, RV, of Abraham's faith. In Rom 14:5 it is said of the apprehension of the will of God. So in Col 4:12 in the best mss. In these three places it is used subjectively, with reference to an effect upon the mind. For its other and objective use, referring to things external, see FULFILL; see also BELIEVE, KNOW, PERSUADE, PROOF. In the Sept., Ecc 8:11.

B-3 Verb Strong's Number: g3982 Greek: peitho

Assurance, Assure, Assuredly:

"to persuade," is rendered "assure" in 1Jo 3:19 (marg., "persuade"), where the meaning is that of confidence toward God consequent upon loving in deed and in truth.
See BELIEVE, CONFIDENCE, FRIEND, OBEY, PERSUADE, TRUST, YIELD.

C-1 Adverb Strong's Number: g806 Greek: asphalos

Assurance, Assure, Assuredly:

means

(a) "safely," Mar 14:44; Act 16:23;

(b) "assuredly," Act 2:36; the knowledge there enjoined involves freedom from fear of contradiction, with an intimation of the impossibility of escape from the effects.
See SAFELY.
