Faith Bible Ministries blog attempts to present articles containing in-depth Bible teaching study material used to present the truth of God’s Word, as well as a reference source in order to continue with individual study of God’s word, It is an outreach ministry of “Faith Bible Ministries,” a division of “Faith Video Ministries Inc.“, a 501(c)(3) religious nonprofit Private Operating Foundation.
The blog site administrator is Brent Bolin who is firmly committed to teaching God’s Word in the building up of believer’s faith by displaying God’s faithfulness in the engineering of a book that He alone could pin through 40 different authors, over 1600 years, from 3 different continents and in 3 different languages.
The foundational Scripture is Romans 10:17, which states:
“So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
A Note from Brent,
It is my belief that in teaching God’s Word by exhibiting and explaining fundamental Biblical exegesis of the Bible, which include: grammatical insights of the Greek and Hebrew text, context (both immediate, and the Bible as a whole), application (dual application, multiple applications), comparative application, both direct and indirect (intended applicant, mandated conditions vs. unconditional conditions, immediate application and/or global application), the Law of First Mention (noting where a specific word in its original language is first used in the Bible concerning its meeting) Perspicuity (noting the clarity concerning the subject matter according to the amount of Scripture on the subject), frequency (noting the amount of Scripture concerning a subject in order to gain a fuller understanding the priority it is given), Object Lessons, Expositional Constancy – Typology (many types, only one meaning – literal emphasis upon the literal interpretation, never at the expense of meaning by the use of figurative interpretation), Figures of Speech, (The ways in which words are used in an unusual manner which doesn’t suit their normal meaning – figures of speech do not dispute the literal interpretation – figures of speech are the main reason for any misunderstanding concerning what others referred to as allegorical interpretation, figurative interpretation, or spiritual interpretation as originated by Origen, and then Augustine), and other rhetorical devices used to communicate on a multiplicity of levels, comparison & contrast, Prophetic Fulfillment (dual fulfillment, multiple fulfillment), cultural insights of both Testaments; all of which is used to present internal, as well as external evidences in order to establish the validity that the Bible is truly the Word of God.
The word of God is our singular authority, not only concerning God and His will for man but also regarding every facet of the human condition and direction that God desires to communicate.
The threefold Biblical foundation of this ministry is to maintain that:
~ The Bible, God’s Word is the complete and only “authority” of God’s revelation to man (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
~ The Word of God maintains the “preeminence” of Jesus Christ as Lord, Savior & God (Eph. 1:20-22).
~ As exhibited by Jesus Christ, the Biblical based unwavering “commitment” concerning the necessity for true Biblical Faith (Rom. 1:17) unto salvation, based upon God’s free gift – grace (Eph. 2:8); provided by the sacrifice of God’s only begotten Son for the sins of the world (1 John 2:2), and the growth of faith within the life of the believer (Col. 2:7).
Many of these essays are exhaustive and hence long because they are meant to be used as research starting points to entice the Believer to dig deeper into God’s Word. It is our desire to communicate these truths within the two-way exchange of a blog site (for those that are interested) in order to achieve the goals the Holy Spirit has placed upon our hearts.
Charis (grace) and Shalom (peace), through Pistis (faith).
Whereas we shall never have peace with God without grace first, yet always by faith. Brent
