God’s Grace Through Christ

Romans 5:1-2 (NIV) Since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 THROUGH WHOM we have gained ACCESS BY FAITH INTO THIS GRACE in which we now stand, and we boast in the hope of the glory of God.

Watchmen all over the world, have you have heard the saying, “Hidden in plain sight?”  Though all creation (all that we can see, hear, taste, touch, and smell in nature) declares the existence, wisdom, intellect, excellence, power, and authority of our God (Romans 1:20); still the multitudes are ignorant of the Ultimate Authority of Creation, our God, Yahweh, Jehovah, The I AM, The Light, Love, Abba Father, Elohim, Adonai, The Ancient of Days…. 

The immeasurable grace of our God (His Loving help to be and do the impossible) is at work all around, in, and through us, continually, as we invite and allow Him (Philippians 2:13).  The Gospel of Jesus The Christ IS the immeasurable grace of our God at work revealed. 

We Must Seek with a Believing Heart!                                                                          Hebrews 11:6 (AMPC) 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.

Watchmen all over the world, when we choose to take our God at His Word (Scripture and Jesus The Christ), and apply His Truth (guided and helped by His Holy Spirit) HE walks us into revelation knowledge of those things hidden by sin and the deception of satan’s deception. 

Heaven’s Truth and treasures have always belonged to humanity; but has been hidden in plain sight by satan and the kingdom of darkness. The kingdom of darkness has nothing to do with color! Spiritual darkness is simply ignorance!  It is as our prophet Hosea declared, “God’s people are killed, stolen from, and destroyed because we lack knowledge of our God, who He is, His ways, and His authority and power.  We are ignorant of His Christ, Jesus, His Anointed One (Hosea 4:6).  We are ignorant of the Truth that we are residents in Christ and therefore just as anointed as He is (1 John 4:17)! 

Watchmen, as we submit to our God’s Truth, He rewards us with His anointing of understanding and wisdom, backed by His authority and power.  In other words, He walks us into the revelation knowledge of His immeasurable, undefeatable grace, as we embrace His Gospel.  We discover the immeasurable power of our God’s grace, as revealed in the life, ministry, death, burial, resurrection, ascension, and seating of Jesus The Christ, the first of the many sons of the Most-High God (Romans 8:28-29).

Once Hidden, Now Revealed in the Gospel of Jesus The Christ                                       The Gospel (Good News) of our God’s work in and through Jesus The Christ is our God’s Truth communicated to humanity.  Our God’s Truth communicated and received by humanity is called “revelation knowledge.”  This Truth is the foundation upon which the following biblical account is built:

Matthew 16:15-18 (KJV) 15 He (Jesus) saith unto them, “But whom say ye that I am?” 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, “Thou art The Christ, the Son of the Living God.” 17 And Jesus answered and said unto him, “Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father which is in heaven.”  18 And I say also unto thee, “That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Watchmen, this rock is the revelation of Jesus as The Christ, the Son of the Living God; this rock is the key to understanding who humanity was created to be.  We are our Father’s offspring, created in His image and likeness.   The Gospel of Jesus The Christ is heaven’s testimony that believers are given a new name (just Simon was now named Peter) with the tools to walk out our own faith, our own sonship, as we replicate our God, through Jesus The Christ, our Savior, Lord, Messiah, and coming King.

The Gospel of Jesus The Christ is our God’s message, His promise, His proof that He is well able to restore all who believe, back to the life He originally intended.  Revelation of the wisdom, authority, and power exemplified in the resurrection of Jesus The Christ is The Rock, the Cornerstone of the strong foundation that satan and darkness are completely and thoroughly defeated.  His life and ministry provide the Way, Truth and Light, equipping us to fully and forcefully enforce the will of our God and His Christ in the earth, with our faith, by our God’s grace, in Jesus name.  Hallelujah!

Our God’s Grace Works for and through All Who Believe

1 Corinthians 1:28-31 (AMP) 28 God has selected for His purpose, the insignificant base things of the world, and the things that are despised and treated with contempt, even the things that are nothing, so that He might reduce to nothing the things that are, 29 So that no one may be able to boast in the presence of God. 30 But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God (revealing His plan of salvation), and righteousness (making us acceptable to God), and sanctification (making us holy and setting us apart for God), and redemption (providing our ransom from the penalty for sin), 31 so then, as it is written in Scripture, “He who boasts and glories, let him boast and glory in the Lord.”

Watchmen all over the world, the Gospel of Jesus The Christ is written to and for all humanity, that we may believe and depend on our Loving Creator God, our Loving Heavenly Father.  He desires that we see, understand, and know Him for who He is, AND that we may see, understand, and know who He has made us to be.

The Gospel of Jesus The Christ IS the revelation of the fulness of the Person, nature, character, heart, mind, authority, and power of our God, our Heavenly Father, The Source of every good and perfect gift, The Covenant Maker and Keeper, our Great I AM!

The Gospel of Jesus The Christ IS the revelation of the fulness of the unlimited inheritance of His Offspring. It is our God’s great grace exercised, explained and walked out by His infallible Word made human.  It is proof that any human believer can do all things through our God and His Indwelling Christ, who covers and strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).

The Gospel of Jesus Christ IS the mysteries of our God revealed to humanity.  

Watchmen, let us be fearlessly grateful as we watch our God fulfill His promises.  Let us praise Him as He breathes on humanity afresh, opening blinded eyes, unplugging deaf ears, and loosing tied tongues.  Let us rejoice as He brings humanity to the valley of decision, to the decision to receive or reject Him.  Let us worship together as we draw closer to the return of our King, Jesus The Christ.

Watchmen all over the world, I give thanks, as our God’s Faith and Great Grace  encourages, equips and empowers us all to stand, trust, pray, say, and obey!

                                                       His Word to His Watchmen                                                     Romans 16:19-20 (TLB) 19 Everyone knows that you stand loyal and true. This makes me very happy. I want you always to remain very clear about what is right and to stay innocent of any wrong. 20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The blessings from our Lord Jesus Christ be upon you.

Let us stand strong in faith, watchmen, as we watch the prayers of the righteous long gone, be fulfilled before our very eyes.

Romans 16:24-27 (KJV) 24 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. 25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, 26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith: 27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.

Stand strong watchmen, as we declare and decree the will of our God together.  As it is written, “Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess” the God-appointed Lordship of Jesus The Christ.  The nations shall honor The Christ, God’s Chosen One, by choice or by prophetic fulfillment.

EVEN SO, COME LORD JESUS!
