It’s All About Our God’s Grace

Watchmen all over the world, our God gave me a working definition for His grace: HIS LOVING HELP TO BE AND TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.  A genuine encounter with our God’s Word reveals the Truth that our God knows and has always known that without Him, humanity is no match at all for satan and his wicked methods and operation.   

Deuteronomy 31:6 (AMPC) Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.

THE TRUTH ABOUT OUR GOD’S GREAT GRACE

Ephesians 2:4-9 (NLT) 4 But God is so rich in mercy, and He loved us so much, 5 that even though we were dead because of our sins, He gave us life when He raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!) 6 For He raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. 7 So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of His grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all He has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. 8 God saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9 Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.

Ephesians 2, verse 8 in the New Living Translation tells us that our God saved us by His grace when we believed.  This statement is true, but only a reflection of the whole Truth.

The Truth is:

Our God provided the sacrificial Lamb, Jesus The Christ, before He laid the foundations of the earth.  (Revelation 13:8).

The Truth is:

The redemption of humanity was complete the very moment our God planned it; it was already done:

Isaiah 43:13 (AMPC) Yes, from the time of the first existence of day and from this day forth I am He; and there is no one who can deliver out of My hand. I will work, and who can hinder or reverse it?

The Truth is:

The original high place and God-given authority of humanity was fully restored before Jesus, the Word of God made flesh was born. The Truth is before He died, Jesus agreed with our God declaring, “It is finished!” (John 19:30).

The Truth is:

Jesus The Christ (0ur God’s Word/human) used our God’s Word, faith, confession and obedience to manifest the Way, Truth, and Life back to our Heavenly Father:

John 14:6 (AMP) Jesus said to him, “I am the only Way to God, and the real Truth, and the real Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

The Truth is:

Our God laid out and finished His plan for the salvation of all humanity before He created humanity, before Adam (male and female man: Genesis 5) fell, and before Jesus (His Word human) manifested in the flesh.  HE IS GOD!!!

The Truth is:

Ephesians 1:3-4 (NLT) 3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in His eyes.

We must use our God’s grace, in accordance to His Word, which gives us faith to partake of His table of provision and safety (His table already set and ready for we who believe) no matter who wishes otherwise for us:

Psalm 23:5-6 (AMP) 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You have anointed and refreshed my head with oil; my cup overflows. 6 Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell forever (throughout all my days) in the house and in the presence of the Lord.

The Truth is:

Our God’s grace, “His Loving help to be and do the impossible” was sufficient for Jesus The Christ, for the Apostle Paul and our other ancestors of the faith, and it remains sufficient for all who believe today.

The Truth is:

It is all about our God’s grace.  We must remember what He is the same yesterday, today, and forever more has said:

Mark 9:23 (KJV) Jesus said unto him, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”

Mark 10:27 (KJV) Jesus looking upon them saith, “With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”

Watchmen all over the world, let us purpose in our hearts to trust the operation of our God’s grace, through our faith, as He operates in total agreement with His Word.  May we learn and partake of the loving nature of our God and His sincere desire to see His best manifested in our lives.  Let us agree with His grace as He corrects, guides, and provides for us.  It truly is all about our God’s grace!
