The Life of Faith through Grace Prt.2

There is an abundance that God has prepared for you, which eyes has not seen nor ears heard and neither has it entered into the heart of any man what it is Isaiah 64:4 but it is to be received by Faith; believing in Jesus has already made it available to you, resting in it and advancing therein is therefore the right way to go. But to doubt and to mock this move of Gods Grace in your life is to disqualify yourself by your unbelieve, because whatsoever Jesus has made available freely must Never be dispised on the precipice of the Law Isaiah 28:16-22. For whatever Grace makes available, Faith must stretch forth to receive it by believing it, speaking it and yeilding to God to do and rest in whatsoever He says do. A study on Hebrews 4 would help you understand how Faith and Grace operates because God intended that everything we are to receive in this kingdom should be by Faith, so that it might be Grace to the end that the promise might be made sure unto us Romans 4:16 just as it was for Abraham, whose inheritance was made sure and manifest to Him, Not by the Law but by the Promise Which God gave Him Galatians 3:18. Thus we are heirs according to the promise and in like manner, we are not to waver at the promises of God through unbelive but must stand strong in Faith(Resting in Christ Finished works for us on the cross) giving Glory to God and our inheritance is Absolutely sure to come Gal.3:29 & Romans 4:16&20.

It is note worthy therefore that even when the chosen ones refused the Grace Offer (in their foolish concensus together), the great king was Not limited rather He threw the offer open to All and sundry to come and freely feast Luke 14:16 (See the Life of Faith through grace Prt.1). You see, God can never be limited by mans unbeleive, rather He’ll simply move on to others who will believe His Grace and heed the call of His Grace because it is a gift Already paid for by Jesus Christ His beloved Son, thus making it a gift that must NOT go to waste. For the scripture in Isaiah 28:16 was the same spoken of by the Holy Spirit through Paul in Romans 9:30-33:
     “But what shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not purseue righteousness have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of Faith;
      But Israel pursueing the Law of Righteousness, has Not attained to the Law of righteousness. Why? BECAUSE THEY DID NOT SEEK IT BY FAITH,
      BUT AS IT WERE BY  THE WORKS OF THE LAW. For they stumbled at that stumbling stone. As It is written:
               “Behold, I Lay in Zion a stumbling stone and rock of offence, and whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame”.
                                                                                                                                                                              Romans 9:30-33 (KJV)

So  the 1st chosen who were to believe and receive of His Grace 1st, according to the parable of Luke 14:16, was the Jews but by reason of their  unbelieve  and rigidity to the law as seen in Romans 9:30-33 & 1Peter2:6-10, they became subtituted by non Jews in Gods banquet room of Grace and these non-Jews is you and I(though our Faith in Christ Jesus, the Lord would engraft them again to Himself in full according to the gospel of Grace, to show forth His abundant wisdoms, and mysteries of His Grace to All who will believe Romans 11).

So what would your answer be today, to His call of abundant free gift of Grace to you?

The Life of Faith Through Grace

Whatever Christ has made available to us, can only be received through Faith. Just as Faith and Patience is the power twin of obtaining good things from the Lord, so also is Faith and Grace the assurance of hope we Have in Christ 2 Thess.2:16 & Heb.3:6. For Grace can only deliver to you what you see and beleive is available to you in Christ Jesus and Faith can only receive whatsoever has Already being freely made available to you in Christ Jesus by His Grace Romans8:32. Remember the parable of the great supper in Luke 14:16-24, where a certain man made a great supper and bade many to come and freely eat because All things are freely ready” . Notice that He called them to come and Freely eat of what has ALREADY being prepared (without money and without price) according to Isaiah 55:1. We know that in this parable, the certain man spoken of was referring to the Lord, calling freely to those He had predestined to be partakers of this supper (according to Romans 8:29-30 and we know that God has predestined us All to be partakers of the sacrifice of Christ at the Cross,  according to His abundant mercy towards mankind as seen in Romams 9:22-26.).

Thus, we see that God has Already made everything that we need in Life ready (in Christ Jesus) even the things that pertains unto life and godliness 2Pet.1:3 because He is a good God and His mercies enduress forever and His compassions fails Not towards us. Thus His disposition towards us is to freely give us All things, through Christ Jesus. So we see that anything freely made available to us through Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Grace of God to us Romans 11:6, Romans4:1-4 &Romans 5.  Yet it is saddening to note that the people to whom He made this great feast didn’t plan to receive His Grace, rather they unanimously voted to reject (1Peter 2:7) the Kings offer by making excuses unto this benevolent King Luke 14:18.  They couldn’t wrap their heads around the free gift of God and chose to reject it All together. The first one was so buried in His material and business aquisition that He priotized it higher than the call of Grace Luke 14:18, the second priotized His wealth and devotion to the law in labour(for oxen signifies labour, toil and Jes) above the call to Grace. Another priotized wordly pleasures and satisfaction above the call of Grace. In summary,  all of them desired what they could earn for themselves and what they could boast in and exert their efforts into, above Gods call to enter into His Rest Hebrews 4 and this very foolish choice cost them their place in the abundance of God.

Do you find yourself along this path today, where you exalt your toilings and the attractions of this world, above the free gifts of God’s Grace in your life? Do you pririoritize your schedules above Gods call to fellowship and feast in His presence? Do you downplay Gods grace by your sense knowledge of things and happenings around you? God is calling you higher. He is saying “come up hither my child, to my place of Rest, to where everything is available unto you, in the throne room of my presence. Have Faith in me, in my unchanging goodness towards you, in my Love for you and in my Grace towards you and All shall be well with you.” Isaiah 55:1-3.

Accessing the Lords Help in A New Year.

In a New Year with many goals and resolutions at your finger tips. You may feel on top of the game at times and at other times feel clueless about what to do. So the resounding question becomes “how do i remain on top of my goals all through this year in the midst of all seasons?” but the Answer is simple, “by the help of God.”

God speaking in Isaiah 41:10 says “Fear Not, for I am with you: be not dismayed for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yea, I will help you; I will uphold you with the Right Hand of My Righteousness.”

I have a question for you, When the Lord upholds you with the right Hand of His Righteousness can you fall? Can you miss it? Can you fail? Can you falter? ABSOLUTELY NOT, Because the Lord upholds Everything by the Word of His Power Hebrews 1:3. And we know that since the beginning of time when God created the heavens and the earth, nothing has fallen out of place(except the things man himself stimulated out of place like the claimed seas for the sake of land expansion and development which in turn reclaims its boundaries back with a vengeance). But with God who created All things perfect from the beginning, we see the force of gravity remaining effective till tomorrow, we see the moon rise and set as it ought to and the moon glowing every starry night and skies continually hanging above us. These are a few of the many things the Lord upholds which Never fails. How much more your life that was created in His own image and likeness Gen.1:27 (with the mandate to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth and subdue it, having dominion over other lesser creatures to man) will God not uphold. GOD NEVER INTENDED FOR MAN TO DOMINATE ANOTHER MAN OR WOMAN, RATHER MAN AND WOMAN WERE TO DOMINATE OTHER CREATURES OF GOD (Which were NOT In the Human Class) Gen.1:27-28. So if Gods desire is for you to have dominion upon the earth how would He not help you, seeing that He gave His Son Jesus Christ to Redeem you from the fall you were born into by the transgression of Adam which brought ALL Of the human Race underground to become enemies of God rather than Sons of God Genesis 3. So if God sent His Son for our exemption how won’t He by Him also give us ALL Things Freely Rom.8:32.

You see, when we gave our lives to Christ we became redeemed from the fall and became one with God, being reconciled back to Him Rom.5:6-10 &13-21. Therefore by believing in Christ Jesus and receiving Him as the Lord of our lives we became reunited with God, because we now belong to His kingdom, being on His side, He also is Now on our side Colossians 1:13, 1Pet.2:9 and we know that when God is for us who can be against us? No One Romans 8:31.

Therefore the Lord is giving you His reassurance All through Isaiah 41 that He would Help you. He is giving you His vow of promise that His Help is with you and All you have to do is to Refuse to fear the challenges that you might be faced with in this year, rather look to Him Alone, setting your eyes to Him like flint and you will Never be moved Psalm 46:5. We see King Uzziah in 2Chronicles 26 being made the King of Judah at age 16. Yet though He was young He did great exploits, wrought great inventions and reigned 52years in Jerusalem (longer than most kings of that time) because He was marvellously helped of the Lord and His secret was that He referenced God above All else refusing to fear people nor circumstances but He chose God to be His fear by reverencing Him in His heart and in His deeds; believing the Word of God and doing that which was right before God by obeying and walking in His precepts. You also can do same and get the same results Uzziah got, by reverencing God in your heart through Absolute Faith in Him and by following His perfect will and lead for your life All through this year. By so doing, you will Not fail, not even once because you will be marvellously helped of the Lord like Uzziah was. It doesn’t matter whether you are 10 or 12, 16 or 60, God is not a respecter of persons, what He did for one, He can do for you, if you would believe His word and follow His leadings in your life (which is made to bring you profit Isaiah 48:17), then you would see the marvellous hand of God helping you in All those Areas you allow Him into, bringing you great success beyond your wildest imaginations.

If you are yet to make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life, let today be the beginning of the rest great days of your life by accepting His love for you today. Simply say with Faith(believing in you heart) “Heavenly Father I come to you today believing you sent your Son Jesus Christ to the world to restore me back to you. I believe and receive His sacrifice for me on the cross. So today I believe Jesus Christ is Lord over All things and make Him the Lord if my Life. I receive Jesus Christ into my life today, take my Life Lord and do great wonders of greatness with it. Thank you Lord for saving me. Its in Jesus Christ Name I’ve prayed, Amen.

Congratulations on your New Birth, welcome to the fold of God kingdom, the first step is for you to get the Holy Bible(it can be downloaded for free on any App Store for any version of your choice, I recommend the KJV or Amp Bible translation).

Till the Next Post remain Ever Blessed and helped of the Lord, basking in His Love!

Jesus is Lord!

Grace For Grace

Photo Credits- http://www.pixabay.com

Though you would have heard it over and again, allow me say to you “HAPPY NEW YEAR”. Its a privilege of great joy to be able to put pen to paper, writing to you this first day of the year and its my greatest desire that All through this year you’ll keep being transformed into the image of Christ to the point where All situations and challenges of life would bow out due to intensity of Gods presence in your life 1Sam.5:2-7.

I have indeed missed writing to you, sharing the Love of Christ Jesus and His Faithfulness and for the break, i apologize, but in this year, I look forward to writing more often by Gods Grace, revealing His heart to you and helping you channel your thoughts through scriptures to the fulfilment of your lives vision. Last year the Lord brought me through many waters and through many fires, but like He promised in Isaiah 43:2 He ensured by His Grace and Mercy that I was NOT Drowned nor Burned. It is for this very reason, I know that If He brought you to year 2019, He did so, because He Has a glorious plan for your life which is of good and NOT of evil to give you a future and a hope Jer. 29:11.

In this year, as you set new goals, seeking new ways to pursue your Vision and desires, let the Lord take the lead because He said He teaches you to prosper and leads you in the way that you should go Isaiah 48:17. You see, the Lords Grace would be your greatest support in this year according to John1:16 because it is ONLY by Grace we are Perfected and can receive Gods FULLNESS for our lives. Interestingly the just lives by Faith but Grace is what makes supplies of answers to our lives while Faith Takes it. For Grace is the Life (New Life) we Now live in Christ while Faith dictates, empowers and sustains us to live that life of Grace.

Therefore, Faith manifests the desired result because of Grace. Thus you will need the Grace and Faith exchange to see results manifest to you daily. So it is of Faith so that it might be by Grace, for the promise of God (spoken to us concerning this year) to be made manifest Romans 4:16. It is therefore wisdom to press in with Faith for the greater Grace of the Lord to find expression in your life this year. For their is no end to the Goodness of God Psalm 52:1 and His Grace is forever sufficient to us 2Cor.12:9 if we’ll believe, desiring to see more Grace manifest in our lives above that of last year because it is Available.

Ways We Acquaint Ourselves with Gods Wisdom Prt.4

3. Messages by Anointed men of God- You see the ministry gifts are not just given by God to man for no reason, rather it is for the edifying of the body of Christ and perfecting of the saints Ephesians 4. God did not make anyone a citadel of all wisdom and knowledge rather he distributed to All in Him, giving them all different gifts and calling as He wills so that where we are lacking we can and would find someone else who is sufficient and well equipped in those areas to help us in it. We see an erudite teacher of the gospel named Apollos in scripture who preached John’s baptism in Acts18:24-28 but when Aquila and prjscjila heard of his teaching style they taught him about the more perfect way through Jesus Christ and being humble He listened and obeyed and had a prosperous ministry to show for it Acts1:12 & 1Cor.3:6. Also Remember the Ethiopian eunuch who loved God but was ignorant about the scriptures, so he religiously read the scriptures daily but understood nothing in it Acts 8:26-31. But as the Holy Spirit brought James to him who expounded the scriptures to him effectively, he caught the light of the word and the heart of the father towards him, got born again and was baptised in water that same day Acts8:32-38. So is it with us as believers today, when we are confused or unsure about what step to take or what we may think God is saying to us, getting into a faith environment were the word of God is preached purely (with witness in your heart) is the solution. For as you do so, the word of God would come your way expressly ad the light of God would beam on every dark areas of concern or confusion to show you the way. Psalm says the voice of the Lord is upon many waters man in when the word is preached there you would find the voice of God expressly without fail. So we will find that the word of Christ Jesus being preached stirs up our spiritual level voice to be heard.

Ways we Acquaint Ourselves with Gods Wisdom Prt.3

2. Books by Anointed Authors- There are certain truths God seeks to reveal to us, that we might not be able to grasp the depth of it on our own. We would require deeper insights by others who have being engraced to see deeper in those areas to fully understand, comprehend and come open towards God in those areas. We therefore see Daniel speaking in Daniel 9:2  “…I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem. Here Daniel had a burden in his heart for the state of Jerusalem which laid in ruins and devastation, but He didn’t understand why, because as a Jew dedicated to God, He knew God wanted His people to live in peace and rest. So in His confusion, He got books to study so that he could gain insight into he mind of God fo the hour. This payed off for him, because he got the revelation he needed about Gods appointed time for the end of Jerusalems desolation. 

I have experienced this truth on several occasions in my life also; where I sense that God is speaking to me but I’m lacking clarity. In those times I employ the aid of the Holy Spirit on which book to read and being the spirit of truth He leads me to read certain books that turn my hears open towards God in those areas and suddenly i begin to hear and understand with clarity what He had being saying to me all along. 

I remember one occasion in particularly where I knew I was struggling through life I didn’t know why but I just knew everything I did was a struggle, I prayed about it but was not receiving much in my spirit. Then one day I said to the Holy Spirit, “I need your help, please help me overcome this and understand what you are saying to me” immediately i sincerely admitted to this, he said to me “go to the bookstore, I’ll show you which book to get” I was surprised and skeptical at the same time as I didn’t expect such an answer but He is the spirit of truth that knows all things even to the root cause of our challenges beyond our wildest imaginations. So I obeyed, went to the bookstore nearby and started looking. As I approached a particular shelf, a book caught my attention and the Holy Spirit said that is it. I want you to read that book. You know scriptures says He works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure, this was one of such workings and I was amazed by it. Interestingly, this was a book that as at that time was out of my league, in terms of the Christian authors I read or listen to but the Holy Spirit said to me “I have something there for you, so I want you to read it” Behold as I read this book page by page chapter by chapter, it was as though it was written for me and to me. I could see myself and the challenges I was facing in each chapter. So as I applied the advised solution to each challenge, the long standing issues where solved instantly. It was a glorious time for me in Gods presence as I journeyed through that book and transited into a more successful version of me. I was amazed at the leading of God through the Holy Spirit to me and the resultant effect of obeying the instruction to read a book on another anointed vessel of His. So are you challenged today in certain areas of life or the call/direction of God on your life, you don’t have to go through it guessing, rather get precision of direction by indepth study of the word via the help of the Holy Spirit and follow the lead of the Holy Spirit to get the necessary materials needed to advance your understanding in Gods word and to open you up to deeper revelations the Lord might be speaking to you on.

Ways we acquaint ourselves with Gods Wisdom Prt.2

2Cor.3:18 “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”. (KJV)

Notice that the HolySpirit says as we behold the glory of the Lord as in a glass, we are changed. The word glass in Hebrew is ‘katoptrizomai’ which means to reflect in a mirror or to look at or behold oneself in a mirror. This is the same as the word used by James in James 1:23 when He said, “for if any be a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. For he beholds himself and goes his way, and straightway forgetting what manner of man he was. But whosoever looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. ”

So we see the Word likened to glass and as 2Cor.3:18 reveals that as we behold in a glass the glory of the Lord we are changed, we realise that we are changed beholding Jesus, viewing in the word who we really are in Jesus and who Jesus really is in us. For Jesus is the brightness of the glory of God manifest to man Heb.1:1-3 & 2Cor.4:6. 

Therefore as we behold Jesus in the mirror of His Word, we behold the glory of the father and are transformed into the same image as He. By this transformation, our souls would finds ease in knowing what He would have us do and greater ease in executing His plan in our lives and endeavours. For Grace would be there to lead the way, teach us how to walk in the way and working His good pleasure in us; bringing us through to our victory place. So we encounter Jesus and His perfect will for us in His Word.
