Grace.

Some teach on the subject of grace as an understanding that through the finished work of Jesus, no matter the depth of sin I get into I am covered and there will be no consequence. 


The true teaching of grace is that with my justification in Christ which is solely on the basis of His sacrifice, I now have the power to live the life of Christ on the earth by His Spirit who indwells me. A type of life not possible through will power nor by human effort but only by grace.

The same way I got justified through the work of Christ on my behalf, I now also walk in obedience through the work of the Spirit within me. A quality of life which when men behold, they will say the excellency of this power at work is not of you but must stem out of God and will be drawn to it. The mystery of godliness is not, sins still manifest in the flesh but forgiven, it is God manifest in the flesh.
Jesus didn’t come to die just to say if you become my child even though you cannot surmount the law of sin and death, you will get away with it. He came to set in motion the law of the Spirit of life that overcomes the principle of sin not by human effort but by His grace working through faith. If you remain in sin claiming grace you will cause the worthy name of Christ to be blasphemed. 
Remember Paul taught Titus this,

Titus 2:10-12King James Version (KJV)

Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
The atoning work of Christ didn’t just secure the forgiveness of sins but it destroyed the principle of sin in the flesh such that the new man is now dead unto sin. People should not teach lasciviousness under the cloak of not being teachers of works but grace.
The book of Revelation shows us how Christ sent strong warnings about the conduct of the churches. Were they not New Testament congregations? It always ended by telling the church “he that hath an ear should hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches”. 


If as a christian you are sincerely in bondage to the “body of death” God will teach you “how to walk in the Spirit” but to reduce the sacrifice of Christ to enabling a lifestyle in sin is pure error.

NO CONDEMNATION. 

​Romans  8:1 

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.




Don’t be ignorant, that verse is ONLY referring to those in Christ Jesus “who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”




That verse mentioned those in Christ Jesus and then went on to define them~ “who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”




If you’re walking after the flesh and not after the Spirit, you’re already condemning yourself ooo.

Shalom!

HELP!!!

​#We all pray for GOD’s help. The answer comes in human form mostly. 


#When help comes, it does what you can and cannot do.


#All men need help. This is why an help “meet”- up to standard, has been put in place.  Gen 2:18


#Though, a few has God as their only helpmate due to their life vocation. 1 Corinth 7:7-8


#When you maltreat your “help” in any way, you destroy yourself (you and yours) in return. 1 Peter 3:7


#Foolishness is when you deviate from your role as the help to the “master of the manor” to become “master of the manor” whilst the master is still fully present. Matt 6:24a

The inhabitants (e.g children) of such “manor” will live in a confused state. Acts 19:32


#Don’t perish in your folly. Ecclesiastes 2:13 

Repent!


*All these relates to man and wife as well as couples and househelps*

LET GOD TAKE THE LEAD.

One of our major problems as believers is that we focus so much on living right(thus following the letter/law) than “being” right(following the HolySpirit). 
It is due to this fact that most of the believers become frustrated after so much trials and failed “self” effort to get it right and thus begin to backslide.
We begin to get it right when we “truly” surrender it all to HIM and hunger/thirst for HIM to take the lead and help us.

It got to a point in my life, I started fasting and praying vigorously for HIM to help me understand the Word rightly while I read it, and not to get confused anymore. HE answered. Matt.11:12
When your “being” is right, you automatically start living right.


It is only via direct/personal relationship with The Holy Spirit that we can have a “factory reset” and thus begin to function aright.
GOD help us all.

Shalom!!
