The Truth About Grace

Articles No Comments

Their has been much discussion recently about Grace. Look at the original Greek meaning…Divine influence upon the heart. When Holy Spirit influences your heart He changes it to His divine nature. He does this by giving you a revelation of the Father. A revelation is not mere knowledge but knowledge that is allowed to work within you changing you to the divine nature or Christ-like. So here is a thorough definition of Grace. A revelation(working knowledge) of the Father which has the power to change the heart.
Now, lets apply this to some scripture…Romans 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound. This truth of scripture proves that no matter your sin, character flaws, past mistakes…etc the revelation of the Father has the power to superceed all that. 1Cor 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another builds thereon. Grace was so important to Paul it empowered him to lay the foundation of the Kingdom where the gospel had never been preached.
In short, GRACE is not at all what I thought it was. It is vital to every Christian in everything without which the child of God does’nt even exist. I challenge you…take the above definition of Grace & go through the scriptures believing the will of God is written there for you..

True Holiness

Articles No Comments

I asked Holy Spirit to give me a definition of “Holiness”. During the next six days I repeated this question to Him. While waiting I turned to the concordance. The hebrew word for Holiness is Kodesh, it means a sacred place or thing. I didnt feel this gave me something to grab ahold of. The second place I looked for the definition of Holiness was the Church. It seems the Church feels holiness is walking in a list of rules & things we shouldnt do. This left me feeling discouraged.
Finally after six days my spirit leaped within me. God spoke to me. My ears didnt hear Him but my mind received His words & a second later my emotions were flooded with excitement. He said,”Holiness is truly knowing who I am”. It was late at night, I was tired but now I was wide awake. I knew I had to search the scripture to see if this was accurate. The most Holy man ever to walk the earth was Jesus the Son of God. Jesus said,”As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father” (John 10:15). Is it possible Jesus, who resigned Himself to become a man & have the same fleshly desires as us, was able to walk in sinless Holiness because He was receiving revelations of who the Father was? I believe so.
Are you struggling with sin? Sin being,”falling short of the standard, Jesus Himself”. Then I say, lets begin asking Holy Spirit to help us know who the Father is. Holy Spirit lives to search the deep things of God & reveal them to us (1 Cor. 2:10). 1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be Holy as I Am Holy..
