Sufficient Grace

This verse is one I find myself resting in often. When this old body gets to aching, the world starts feeling as if it shaking from troubles, worries build up then I find myself in God’s word, seeking His strength cause when I am weak in Him I am strong. Think about the absolutely beautiful grace found through these words. That when we in our weaknesses rest entirely in Christ His power and grace will be sufficient to make us strong and weather whatever storm and trouble we face. And goodness knows we as believers and just people stuck in this world will face them. Lots of them, they’re even more sure than death. We always have the hope of being the caught up saints – this world we are in has reached a level of weirdness and evil that makes me wonder how much longer it will be before we get caught up and it’s game on again for Israel’s program.

Before I learned how to study and understand what God is doing and said to us today that really tore my nerves outta the frame. There were some dark dark days there when we listened to teachers who were all jacked up in their beliefs mixing law and grace, Israel and the Body, the second coming with our catching up, etc. I let myself get drawn away from God’s word and listening to man’s ideas. But my husband from the day he was saved saw right division and he began leading me, teaching me what he was seeing about what God was doing. He would study at work all day and then come home and share, I would listen and then study the next day. This continued till one day it clicked and I saw what he was talking about and all the confusion from before – like the whole gospel of the circumcision / uncircumcision; body of Christ being bride of Christ, the rapture and Revelation, etc. At this point we hadn’t really found anyone teaching this so we didn’t have a name he just recognized that the instructions in Paul’s Epistles were different than the rest of Scripture. Then one day he stumbled across a Message of Grace video by Richard Jordan and we had a name for how we were seeing in God’s word – right division; 2 Timothy 2:15 O wrote that down and memorized it as I began seeing the pieces of God’s puzzle clearly for the first time. That was over a year ago, my faith and edification in what God is doing today. That is what led to me really understanding 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 and realizing just how much more muchier than I could have ever even dared to hope God’s grace towards us is. The more I get to know Him through His word the more I thank Him, the more I dwell and rest in Him, the more I share Him and the truth of His glorious grace!

Free From Sin

Sin is a real problem for every single one of us. See as children of Adam we are born sinners, every last one of us. And yea, when the Bible says we are born sinners it means it. I teach toddlers from 18 months to around 3 or 4 years old each Sunday and trust me those seemingly innocent little ones are born sinning. They will hit and bite another child as they try to “steal” the toy they covet. And don’t get me started on the lies involving dirty diapers; vehemently denying a loaded diaper is pointless but they all do it. Romans 3:23 KJV โ€” For ๐Ÿ‘‰all have sinned๐Ÿ‘ˆ, and come short of the glory of God;Romans 5:12 KJV โ€” Wherefore, as๐Ÿ‘‰ by one man sin entered into the world๐Ÿ‘ˆ, and death by sin; and so๐Ÿ‘‰ death passed upon all men, ๐Ÿ‘ˆfor that all have sinned:Romans 6:23 KJV โ€” For the ๐Ÿ‘‰wages of sin is death; ๐Ÿ‘ˆbut the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.Romans 5:15 KJV โ€” But not as the offence, so also is the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.Basically we are by birth a bunch of bad apples, rotten to the core in God’s standards. That’s a real problem too because He hates sin and can’t be around it which means in our natural state we are separated from Him and doomed to hell and a lake of fire when we die. That’s the place God has for those who die as sinners.That breaks His heart though whenever anyone ends up there. That’s not what man was created for. We were created to love Him, fellowship and commune with Him but pride got in the way. Eve listened to the serpents lies when he told her she could be like God and she ate the fruit and Adam who had heard God say what would happen well, he ate too and today you have two year olds smelling like a Johnny on the Spot saying they don’t need their diaper changed cause they didn’t mess in it. We got a fruit problem and God knew we would have so before the world began He decided how He was gonna fix it for us. He decided back then that when the time was right Christ would die on the cross to pay for the sins of all the world. All of them – past, present and future – and He would then be buried and raise from the grave alive, resurrected, the third day. 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV โ€” For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that ๐Ÿ‘‰Christ died for our sins ๐Ÿ‘ˆaccording to the scriptures; And that he ๐Ÿ‘‰was buried, and that he rose again ๐Ÿ‘ˆthe third day according to the scriptures:All God wants us to do is believe that, trust in that for our salvation to fix our sin fruit problem. When we do we are sealed by the Holy Spirit and put into Christ’s death burial and resurrection and God no longer sees us but His Son, we have Christ’s righteousness Christ was the only man who NEVER sinned, EVER; He was God’s Son but also God in the flesh and He was perfect and therefore only He was able to pay the debt for sin that we owe. Ephesians 1:13 KJV โ€” In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also๐Ÿ‘‰ after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit ๐Ÿ‘ˆof promise,2 Corinthians 1:22 KJV โ€” Who hath also ๐Ÿ‘‰sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.๐Ÿ‘ˆWhen we are sealed and put into Christ then we are like Him, we are perfect before God and therefore we are freed from sin, dead to it. It no longer reigns in our hearts and bodies, and we have the power in Christ to overcome it when we rest solely in who we are in Him! Sin our “flesh”,; our natural fallen state, our “old man”; is crucified with Christ. It dies spiritually and is resurrected a totally new creature sin free and perfect before God, our “new man.”. Kinda like a caterpillar that goes into it’s cocoon where it basically dies then wait a spell and it comes back out a whole new thing, a gorgeous butterfly. Our flesh will still bear “bad” fruit if we rest in it, but our spirit will bear “good” fruit if we rest in Christ. Our flesh remember was crucified with Him and is dead so we are now free to live in the spirit and bear good fruit to God. He empowers us to serve Him in the spirit, we just have to choose to do so. 2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV โ€”๐Ÿ‘‰ Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.๐Ÿ‘ˆStop resurrecting the “old man” that God has crucified, live in the “new man” and the newness of life you have in Him.

Accepted in the Beloved

This truth of who we are in Christ as members of His body is one that gives me the deepest peace, a peace that passeth all understanding and is possible only by resting solely in His glorious grace! I praise Him that I am eternally gripped in His love, accepted in the Beloved, Christ Jesus, God’s precious Son and my Saviour. Do you have this peace? Are you accepted in Christ, the Beloved because you have believed the gospel of your Salvation; how that Christ died for your sins, was buried and rose again the third day?

We are all sinners by nature and that sin separates us from God who is holy, just and perfect. Our sin breaks God’s laws and His heart as it means we must die because that’s the wages of sin and that in dying we would be sent to hell for all eternity. But He doesn’t want it that way, He created man to be in fellowship with Him, to bring Him glory. But the first man Adam, well he jacked that all up pretty quick and brought sin upon man, sin that we inherited through him. But God in His wisdom knew what Adam would do and the problem man would have because of it before He ever even made the world and He made a plan then to fix it. He decided before the world began that He would send His Beloved Son to dwell among us on Earth – God with meat on Him- and eventually go to the cross and die for the sins of the world. God took your sins (and mine) and laid them on Christ, who died for them to pay your debt to God. He paid the debt He didn’t owe because He knew you could never do it. He was the only One who could, and in His precious grace, and glorious love He did so. He paid for all sins that day at Calvary – past, present and future – with His blood, you just need to believe that and when you do then He saves you, it’s a gift, completely free. You just have to accept it, believe Christ Jesus is who said, did what He did. Trusting in His blood alone is the ONLY thing that can will and does save you. That’s believing Christ and the gospel of God’s grace.

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 KJV โ€” For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that ๐Ÿ‘‰Christ died for our sins ๐Ÿ‘ˆaccording to the scriptures; And that ๐Ÿ‘‰he was buried, ๐Ÿ‘ˆand that ๐Ÿ‘‰he rose again the third day๐Ÿ‘ˆ according to the scriptures:

Ephesians 1:13 KJV โ€” ๐Ÿ‘‰In whom ye also trusted๐Ÿ‘ˆ, after that ye heard the word of truth, ๐Ÿ‘‰the gospel of your salvation๐Ÿ‘ˆ: in whom also ๐Ÿ‘‰after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Ephesians 2:8 KJV โ€” For ๐Ÿ‘‰by grace are ye saved through faith;๐Ÿ‘ˆ and that not of yourselves: it is ๐Ÿ‘‰the gift of God:๐Ÿ‘ˆ

If you have believed that only gospel that saves you today then you are saved, sealed by the Holy Spirit into Christ and yes, you too are accepted in the Beloved.

Two Natures

So I feed the blessed one with sound doctrine by studying the KJV Bible rightly divided. And that sound doctrine works effectually within me for my edification and growth as an ambassador of Christ.

Romans 8:1 KJV โ€” There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

2 Timothy 2:15 KJV โ€” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Titus 1:9 KJV โ€” Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

Titus 2:1 KJV โ€” But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:

1 Thessalonians 2:13 KJV โ€” For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

2 Corinthians 5:20 KJV โ€” Now then ๐Ÿ‘‰we are ambassadors for Christ, ๐Ÿ‘ˆas though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Heir of God

Heir of God for eternity! That’s the beautiful, amazing truth of what His grace makes me! I can hardly wrap my head around it, hardly believe the very God of glory gave his precious blood for me, paid my debt when He didn’t have to, died and was put in that tomb for me eternally casting my every single sin away, then rose the third day for my justification. When I believed that, when I placed my trust solely in His faithfulness through His death burial and resurrection then that instant I was saved, set free from sin and sealed by the Holy Spirit into Christ my Saviour, immediately and eternally saved, praise God I was saved by His grace because the precious blood shed on Calvary of the very God of heaven was the only thing that could take my son and set me free. That’s the Gospel found in 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 and it wasn’t just for me alone but for the world. If you haven’t believed that truth already and you have read this far please do not delay any longer. Christ already paid it all, His blood for poured out 2,000 years ago and it was your name on His mind Your name, yoursins, your life He bought with His blood. Accept what He has done and believe that it is finished, it’s His gift of His grace and it is the ONLY way to be saved today.

That truth alone is enough, but not only are we saved and sealed by when we trust solely in His finished work of the cross but we are out into Him through the dry baptism of the Holy Spirit and that means we are a new creation in Christ. From the instant we belueve and trust Him alone God no longer sees us and the jacked up mess we are but He sees us in His Son ! He sees us as heirs with Christ and we will this poem by an unknowns author expresses it so well.

๐Ÿ‘‰What a prospect, child of glory
Does the future hold in store.
By thy wildest flights of fancy,
Thou could never ask for more.

Heir of God, joint-heir forever,
With His own beloved Son.
God could not to you have promised
More of bliss than He has done.๐Ÿ‘ˆ
— Author Uknown

Think on that, let it really take root in your heart and live like who you are, an heir of God in Christ.

That Voice You Hear Ain’t God

It’s just the bad pizza you ate. That’s because God isn’t speaking to anyone one audibly or in your head today! He’s given us His perfect word in written form already, it contains everything He wants us to know about what He is doing and leaves out everything He doesn’t.

Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, ๐Ÿ‘‰to fulfil the word of God; ๐Ÿ‘ˆ Colossians 1:25 KJV

The Apostle Paul wrote the very last words God gave to us down. They were given to him by the glorified risen Christ through a series of progressive revelations over many years. It was through these words that we get our doctrines for today and understand why God is forming this new creature the Body of Christ.

We simply believe that what God has already said (and preserved) in his WRITTEN and preserved word (KJV) is true.

In hope of eternal life, which ๐Ÿ‘‰God, that cannot lie, ๐Ÿ‘ˆ promised before the world began; Titus 1:2 KJV

That by two immutable things, in which it was ๐Ÿ‘‰impossible for God to lie, ๐Ÿ‘ˆ we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Hebrews 6:18 KJV

God has never and will never go against his written word, because he values his word ABOVE ALL.

I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: ๐Ÿ‘‰for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.๐Ÿ‘ˆ Psalms 138:2 KJV

Sanctify them through thy truth: ๐Ÿ‘‰thy word is truth.๐Ÿ‘ˆ John 17:17 KJV

As for God, his way is perfect:๐Ÿ‘‰ the word of the Lord is tried:๐Ÿ‘ˆ he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. Psalms 18:30 KJV

God’s word tells us plainly that apostle Paul was the LAST person to receive word from God.

Paul writes …

Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you,๐Ÿ‘‰ to fulfil the word of God; ๐Ÿ‘ˆ Colossians 1:25 KJV

“To fulfil” means to complete, finish, done.

Now there’s no getting around it, either that verse is true or its not true.

Either God is truthful or God is a liar.

I believe that verse. I believe God is truthful, therefore I know God has already given to us ALL the words that he intended to give us, and preserved those very words perfectly in a book. Today, we have God’s complete word in the KJV Bible (KJV).

But, unless we, as a saved person, study it the way God instructs us to in his written word, 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV, we will not be able to get the profit out of it that God intends us to have. Thus, we will misinterpret his word and be without the clarity that is freely available when we obey his commandment to study and rightly divide.

If you’re hearing voices or think you are receiving signs, you are mistaken to assume it is from God. Whatever you might be hearing or seeing is either from your own imagination … or … from God’s adversary, Satan. That deceiver wants nothing more than to keep you confused, unfruitful, and destroy your testimony of God’s grace. So he tries to keep you from knowing it.

Our apostle Paul warns us:

And no marvel; for ๐Ÿ‘‰Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ 2 Corinthians 11:14 KJV

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the ๐Ÿ‘‰prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:๐Ÿ‘ˆ Ephesians 2:2 KJV

Paul makes the following about signs very clear.

For the ๐Ÿ‘‰ Jews require a sign๐Ÿ‘ˆ, and the Greeks seek after wisdom 1 Corinthians 1:22 KJV

(For we walk by faith,๐Ÿ‘‰ not๐Ÿ‘ˆ by sight:) 2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV

Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you,๐Ÿ‘‰ to fulfil the word of God; ๐Ÿ‘ˆ Colossians 1:25 KJV

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, ๐Ÿ‘‰let him be accursed. ๐Ÿ‘ˆ Galatians 1:8 KJV

Paul penned the last words from God, and God preserved those last words for us in Romans thru Philemon KJV. So if you want to talk to God or for Him to talk to you grab a King James Bible and start reading.

Prophets? Not Today!

There are no prophets, no new prophecies, and no more revelations being given to man today. That’s not how God is dealing with us now, He has already revealed it all and we can read everything He wants is to know without anything He doesn’t in the King James Bible, God’s preserved word for us today. Instead of looking for a man to tell us what to do, think, etc. read what God says in scripture rightly dividing the word of truth. All scripture is for you, so you can fully understand the unfolding of God’s two-fold plan throughout time, but it’s not all to or about you. Prophecy, spoken of SINCE the world began, is all about Israel and the Earth. Mystery, hidden in God since BEFORE the world began, refers to spiritual things and heavenly places. The Old Testament and four gospels are prophetic in nature, therefore they focus primarily on the nation of Israel, it’s all to for and about them. Acts is the account of the temporary fall or time out of Israel and fornation of the body of Christ. Romans through Philemon are the books revealing the mystery they are the books to for and about us as the body of Christ, its where we find our doctrines and specific instructions on how to live in this age of God’s grace. Then Hebrews through Revelation is to Israel after the body of Christ is caught up to heaven with Christ when the prophetic plan is back in full swing. These books are where the believing remnant of Israel going through Daniel’s 70th week, Jacob’s Trouble, for their doctrines and edification as they go through the Antichrists reign and the wrath of God being poured out on the unbelieving world That’s why Hebrews is addressed to the “strangers scattered abroad”, this is the Jews scattered among the nation’s where they are strangers, and James to the twelve tribes, we are not members of the twelve tribes.

In order to do what God wants you to do today just read what He wrote, the way He had it written, in the normal sense, don’t spiritualize, change or add to it any way. Don’t look to men for guidance, look to God’s word.

Accepted in the Beloved

I rejoice in knowing this, that I am accepted in the beloved, Christ Jesus. I’m already accepted forgiven and seated in heavenly places with Him. Those chains of bondage to sin and death that bound me, the guilt and loathing that was crippling and destroying me, all while I was telling myself it didn’t bother me, I was a good person, everything was fine; they are gone dead and buried with Him. He died to pay for them, was buried to leave them in hell where they belong, and rose the third day for my justification before God, that’s the gospel of my salvation a free gift of God poured out at Calvary for me.

And for you. Salvation and eternal life are yours the moment you too believe the gospel if Christ’s death burial and resurrection. We are all sinners, red hot messes if mistakes and rejection of God, but praise God He became flesh in His Son and took your mess upon Himself, paying the debt you owe so you can live!

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Romans 3:23 KJV

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Romans 5:8โ€ญ-โ€ฌ11 KJV

In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:13โ€ญ-โ€ฌ14 KJV

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Ephesians 1:6โ€ญ-โ€ฌ7 KJV

And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: Colossians 2:10 KJV

Be Opals

I love this passage, it so beautifully explains who we are in Christ. A new creature, no longer trapped in our old selves, that old me is dead and buried with Christ, I am reconciled to God in Him. Think on that. We are already reconciled to God, the instant we believe Christ’s perfect righteousness is put on us. When God sees us all He sees is His Son. He doesn’t see our past, our mistakes, our sins, the broken jacked up mess we were. Nope, He sees us as we will be, the beautiful perfect masterpiece we are in Christ,. We’re God’s opals. Opals are ugly in their natural state filled with imperfections and impurities, they’re just dirty lumps of rock. But wash them, give a good polish and shine then let the light shine on em and they are gorgeous. The colors that sparkle in their depths, the beauty, they look almost alive with rainbows. That’s exactly how we are. In our natural unsaved state we are ugly with sin, impure, imperfect, just dirty broken people. But the moment we are saved we are washed in Christ’s blood from all our sins, impurities, and imperfections in God’s eyes. We are spiritually polished and shined by the Holy Spirit and we are filled with the Light, Christ Jesus in whom we now stand. We sparkle with His light, we are beautiful in Him, we are alive in the One who gives us His life! That’s God’s glorious grace!

Always remember that my beloved brothers and sisters in Christ. When life tries to throw you back into the bondage of your past, chain you in bonds to the law, control you through fear, manipulation and twisting or changing of God’s word remember this passage. Remember how God already sees you, remember who you are in Christ, His ambassador. Let that truth fill you, encourage and strengthen you and then go live in who Christ has made you, not who the world’s tells you you are. Go be God’s opal.

Complete

Have you thought about that, that you are complete in Him? Have you let it sink in just “who” He is, what He did, and that He loves you that much? That the head if all principality and power set it all aside and became a man; being born a helpless babe and growing to the day He was obedient u to death on the cross so you could be complete in Him! The God of heaven, maker of all that is, thought it no robbery to become man, put meat on so to speak in all it entails, live a sinless life in our broken world and then go to Calvary a beaten, battered, sacrifice for the sins of all the world. Sins He never committed, debts He didn’t owe, prices we could never pay, yet He took it on Himself. He paid them with His blood, poured out in unimaginable, unfathomable, unrelenting love so deep and strong that even the bonds of death couldn’t hold it. When we believe that he died, was buried and rose the third day we are sealed by the Holy Spirit into Him. Into the head of all principality and power. We are complete in Him.

So live in that completeness. Live in Him knowing that when God sees you He doesn’t see your brokenness, your mistakes, sins, transgressions. He sees perfection, a masterpiece, righteousness, He sees Christ His precious Son! That’s who you are now, who you represent, who gives you life when you were dead. You’re His ambassador here, represent Him well. And share His glorious grace, love as He loves, and be who He has made you.
