The Gospel of Grace Ministries with Kim Balogh

Faith (Biblical faith) is a gift from God, a fruit and attribute of the HOLY SPIRIT. All men have not faith according to the Bible.

Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. But the Lord is faithful, who shall establish you, and keep you from evil.” 2 Thessalonians 3:1-3

Faith is not something we can conjure up on our own, nor is it something that we are born with. Ephesians 2:8-9 makes it very clear that faith is a gift from God, not because we deserve it or have earned it because faith is not from ourselves…. it is from God. Faith is not obtained by our own power or our free will. Faith is not simply an intellectual assent to something, or a belief system. Faith is a heart transformation which comes through divine revelation of the word of God and it is given by the Holy Spirit. Man cannot acquire Biblical faith by self effort. (no matter how much you read or quote scriptures) because faith is a divine inspiration which comes from the person of God’s character according to his will and good pleasure.

All born again Christians have each been given a measure of God’s faith and that faith will grow as one matures in the Lord. The gift of faith which is a spiritual endowment comes to a person for a specific thing at a specific time according to the will of God but it is not the same as our individual measure of faith. The gift of faith is a higher level of Gods faith given for a miracle to occur.

To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;”1 Corinthians 12:9

An example of the gift of faith gift in action is when Peter sees a lame man at the Beautiful Gate and calls on him to stand up and walk in the Name of Jesus. Acts 3:1-10

Jesus said even a small amount of God’s miraculous faith could move mountains. Matthew 17:20-21 and Matthew 21:21 as well as 1Corinthians 13:2

Faith is described in Hebrews 11:1 as being “certain of what we do not see.” It is the absolute belief that God is constantly working behind the scenes in every area of our lives, even when there is no tangible evidence to support that fact.

Faith is a gift, (Ephesians 2:8-9) which is also described as a fruit (or characteristic) which is produced in our lives by the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22). Scriptures say that faith grows as we submit to learning the word of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit that is at work in our lives.

We cannot by our own effort make faith appear in us for faith comes from God alone. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). The study of God’s Word is how strong faith is developed. Also, the Bible is clear that faith does not mature and strengthen without trials. Adversity in our lives is how God develops a strong faith in him. As we learn to trust him in every situation, faith in Christ grows stronger and give us victory in all things!

These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 1 Peter 1:7

For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 john 5:4

My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
