You’re Not Alone, Grace Believer

This was shared by my friend LeighAnn Mycko and it is such a lovely reminder that even when we fee alone as grace believers we never really are and we must keep on sharing grace and fighting the good fight of faith.

Each one of us, before we were saved and came to the knowledge of the truth, was in darkness.

Each one of us, before we were saved and came to the knowledge of the truth, believed lies.

Each one of us, before we were saved and came to the knowledge of the truth, was a fool.

All of us grace believers came from a place of unbelief.

All of us grace believers were once consumed with our own vain imaginings.

All of us grace believers were once children of disobedience.

We failed to give God the glory.

We failed to be thankful to God.

We failed to worship and serve the Creator more than the creature.

But now, we know we are justified by his blood, saved from wrath, and that we shall live with him.

But now, we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.

But now, our conversation is in heaven as we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Change doesn’t happen over night.

Studying rightly divided takes time and effort.

Sometimes life gets in the way and slows down that progress.

It happens to us all at one time or another.

Keep going anyhow.

Don’t ever stop believing.

Don’t ever stop studying.

Stick to sound doctrine, because when everyone leaves you, sound doctrine won’t!

My Home

THE STARRY SKY IS MY HOME

I’ve always looked up at the night sky with great wonderment, never really being sure about it.

BUT NOW that I’m saved and I’ve come to the knowledge of the truth from my KJV Bible rightly divided, the night sky has so much more meaning for me!

For there, I KNOW, will be my home for eternity with the Lord Jesus Christ.

You may laugh at me for “rightly dividing,” and you might think I’m crazy for being KJV only, and you could consider me a heretick for following apostle Paul.

But, one thing I can do that you can’t, when I look up at a starry sky, IS REJOICE IN HOPE OF THE GLORY OF GOD, KNOWING THAT I SHALL BE DELIVERED from the bondage of corruption, through patience and comfort of the scriptures, and am filled with all joy and peace in believing, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith, KNOWING what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought IN Christ!

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN
HAVING THIS SAME HOPE OF GOD?

If so …

.

#1 – you must FIRST be saved by being IN Christ before you die. And, God places you IN Christ the moment you have TRUSTED in God the Son Jesus Christ as your only means of salvation, AND then without doing, saying, or praying anything, have BELIEVED that Christ died for our sins, and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day. See Rom 1:16; Eph 2:8-9; 1Cor 15:1-4; Eph 1:13 KJV.

#2 – And, THEN, as a saved person you need his pure word of truth, the book of the Lord (KJV), so you can rest in the hope of God;

#3 – And, THEN, you must obey and acknowledge God’s commandment in 2Timothy 2:15 KJV, and study, rightly dividing the word of truth;

#4 – you must believe and acknowledge what Paul says in Ephesians 3:1-11; 2 Timothy 2:7; Philippians 3:17-21 KJV;

#5 – you must obey and acknowledge God’s commandment in Romans 16:25-26 and 1 Corinthians 14:37 KJV.

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 — For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that 👉Christ died for our sins 👈according to the scriptures; And that 👉he was buried, 👈and that 👉he rose again the third day👈 according to the scriptures:

Ephesians 1:13 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👈

Ephesians 2:8 KJV — For 👉by grace are ye saved through faith;👈 and that not of yourselves: it is 👉the gift of God:👈

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.

Different Is Not The Same

Even a toddler can tell you that. So why would you want to read a Bible that is different than what God preserved. I know that the KJV Bible is the inerrant preserved word for the English language. I know because God said over and over that He would preserve it forever.

Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:
Isaiah 30:8 KJV

The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord , thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Psalms 12:6‭-‬7 KJV

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Matthew 5:17‭-‬18 KJV

For ever, O Lord , thy word is settled in heaven. Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart. Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
Psalms 119:89‭, ‬111‭, ‬160 KJV

Just to give you a few. Not only does He promise to preserve it, but He warns against those who try to change it and even tells us where all the perversions originate from – Satan. Destroying God’s word is one of his most effective methods of deceiving people. He knows if he can confuse and muddle what God has said to mankind then many will be lead astray by false doctrines, unbelief from seeming contradictions and therefore multitudes will die and go to hell and a lake of fire for all eternity. Because Satan began his plan in the garden and it’s been gathering steam ever since. Till today we have a whole buffet of translations in English but the lost are dying of starvation for the Word because they believe all versions are the same.

From removing the deity and blood of Christ, twisting doctrines and instructions to fit worldly agendas and denying God’s authority even removing or altering the gospel and our instructions for living today. Most even call Jesus Christ, Lucifer! They change Isaiah 14:12 from this:

How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isaiah 14:12 KJV

To say “morning star” which is the name given to Christ in Revelation 22:16 “the bright and morning star”.

Just look at a couple more comparisons of over 2,000 changes made in the translations that have come out since the KJV.

Now tell me again how all Bible versions are the same?

When I Say Goodbye

WHEN I SAY GOODBYE

When to this world I say goodbye,
Whether Christ shall come or I shall die;

I shall not fear my future state;
Nor yet resign my soul to fate;

'Tis neither boast no carnal pride;
Nor natural worth I have inside;

My trust is not in human creeds;
Nor in my good religious deeds,

If man, by works, could heaven gain,
Then 'tis true, Christ died in vain,

There was no power on earth could save,
Nor offer hope beyond the grave,

Salvation is from heaven above;
God's book declares that God is love,

God loved the world and sent His Son
To die for sinners, for every one,

Christ tasted death for every man:
It was God's own redemption plan.

On Calvary cross the debt was paid,
For there on Christ our sins were laid,

In death the Saviour bowed His head,
There His precious blood was shed.

God has for sin no other cure,
By Christ's shed blood the way is sure.

When Christ had put our sin away,
In Joseph's tomb His body lay,

But on the third day Christ arose
To conquer thereby all His foes;

Then He ascended through the sky
To take His Father's throne on high,

Now in the Father's presence there
Unceasing is the Saviour's prayer.

Still He prays, "All Thine are Mine"
Forever kept by power Divine.

Christ promised to prepare a place
For all who will receive His grace.

Some day the age of grace will end;
The Lord from heaven shall descend.

The dead in Christ will hear the shout,
And from their graves they will come out.

The living saints shall with them rise,
And meet the Saviour in the skies;

And we shall then His glory see,
And like the Saviour we shall be.

When we reach our heavenly home,
Throughout the age yet to come,

God's grace in Christ the saints shall know,
For God has promised this to show.

Enternal life, God's gift is free
'Tis all by grace for you and me.

So in God's Word I rest my case,
Trusting His unfailing grace.

God cannot lie, His word is sure;
And in His Son I am secure,

Because Christ work has satisfied,
And by that work I'm justified.

God has pardoned every sin;
My hope of glory, Christ within.

I am prepared my God to meet,
For in His Son I am complete,

And sealed into redemption day,
So if by death, or I'm caught away.

I shall not fear my future state,
But, loving Christ, I'll serve and wait.

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 5:8‭-‬11 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 1:13‭-‬14 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 1:6‭-‬7 KJV

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

Don’t Be Accursed!

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Galatians 1:6‭-‬12 KJV

Paul gave this stern warning to us in his epistle to the Galatians about believing another gospel other than the one he preached which was given to him directly by the glorified, risen Christ. The gospel we are saved by today is:

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
1 Corinthians 15:1‭-‬4 KJV

Notice carefully what it consists of, it is all about the finished cross work of Christ, nothing else. You don’t deserve it, you can never earn it, and Christ already did it all anyway. It is a gift, you just believe that and accept it.

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Ephesians 2:8 KJV

And now notice what it does not consist of. There is no repentance, no water baptism, no rituals, no law keeping, NO works of any kind! That means the gospel for today is not the same one taught by John the Baptist, Jesus in the red letters, or the twelve apostles. The gospel they preached does save certain people under certain conditions and times just not today. That gospel was a kingdom gospel offered to Israel as a nation which they rejected so God put them in a big time out and brought salvation to the world anyway. See salvation was supposed to come through Israel to the Gentiles and in the future when God begins dealing with Israel again (after the body of Christ is caught up in the rapture) it will come through them. But right now it only comes through faith in Christ alone without any works or earthly promises, covenants, works, etc. God always knew this would be the case, he planned it before the world even began but He hid in Himself because if he hadn’t then they wouldn’t have crucified Christ, and that was the ultimate victory. God had a two fold plan to reconcile both Earth and heaven back under his government (Earth isn’t the only place that’s all jacked up, a whole bunch of angels rebelled too!).

Israel is the kingdom plan known as prophecy and it has been spoken of since the world began, they get the earthly kingdom of Christ, a literal kingdom that will be ushered in by the 70th week of Daniel and Christ’s return to set foot on Earth when he sets up the prophetic David kingdom lasting a thousand years in this Earth. Salvation under this plan is through faith in who Christ is, as in Christ the Son of God, what He did, and you prove your faith by works. Hence the Gospel that was preached by Jesus and the twelve “Repent and be baptized and have your sins forgiven at the times of refreshing”. That’s the second coming of Jesus to the Earth, their sins are not forgiven until then under the prophetic program.

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 2:38 KJV

Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;
Acts 3:19 KJV

However today it’s all about grace and the mystery God had kept hidden all throughout history until just the right moment. That’s when He sent Christ to shine down from heaven’s glory and see save Paul to be the apostle to the Gentiles and take the gift of grace to the world. He’s forming a new creature, the Body of Christ that is spiritual, heavenly not earthly. We are made one in Christ the instant we are saved and nothing can ever separate us from Him. See, God’s not imputing our sins to us today, they are already forgiven and when we believe in the death burial and resurrection of Christ then it is finished we are saved that second. Saved, sealed, and delivered I call it. When he looks at us he sees His Son and who we are in Him.

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,
Ephesians 1:13 KJV

That’s glorious but you won’t find it in any gospel other than Paul’s gospel found in Romans through Philemon. If anyone tells you are saved by repentance, being baptized, or that you need to do anything at all to be saved, stay saved or prove you are saved then they are preaching another gospel, anither gospel that isn’t actually because it is a gospel of Christ just like Paul’s is but it’s not the one for today. And when Paul says to beware of anyone preaching such, note in the Phillipian’s passage they are called accursed twice. This because at because believing it could cost you eternity. See, if you believe the wrong Gospel today you are putting your trust not in Christ’s precious blood alone to save you but His blood plus your efforts. This makes you an enemy of the Cross and frankly lost as a golf ball in high weeds.

Trust in Christ alone knowing that He paid it all and told Paul all about it so he could record the plan of salvation for us today. Believe Christ when he said we have redemption through his blood alone and nothing, nothing, nothing else. Stop trying to earn it just get with the program for today. Don’t be accursed!

Be A White Turkey

We have wild turkeys here on the creek where we live, apparently they’ve always been here roaming the valley. And as far back as anyone I’ve talked to can remember there’s always been one, just one white turkey. I feel like that white turkey. I’m here in this place, this world but I am not part of it. While most people are watching American Idol I’m watching a Bible study on YouTube, instead of listening to popular music I listen to Bible study audios, instead of talking about the latest news, trend, etc. I talk about God’s grace and how Christ’s death on Calvary paid for all our sins, His burial removed them and His resurrection the third day justifies us before God. He paid it all and it is finished. I talk about how to study the Bible rightly divided and why it matters. I do these things because they are what this verse is talking about, because I can’t not do them anymore. It doesn’t make me popular,or particularly well liked, in fact it has cost me friends even family because everyone gets tired of me not just agreeing with their religianity or bapticostalism. So I feel like that white turkey, I stand out like a sore thumb right now when everyone around me looks basically alike. But just like that white turkey in blends in winter snow, I will blend in with the rest of the saints in the Body of Christ when we are gathered together with Him in the air one day. That’s gonna be an awesome day cause I’ll be out of this world that praise God I don’t belong to anymore.

Paul Taught Is All…

Yep, he did. Today God is forming the Body of Christ, a new creature, and we are his ambassadors here on Earth. The moment we believe in Christ’s death to pay for all our sins ever (all means all past, present and future – after all they were all future when He died to pay for them), his burial to remove them forever,and his Resurrection three days later for our justification before God and giving us eternal life in Him then we are sealed into Him and His death, burial and resurrection. It is a gift we don’t deserve freely given that we could never earn, it is God’s glorious grace! So as members of His body we represent Him here, we are His ambassadors and as such we have a responsibility to learn what is expected of us today and then get busy doing it. The first member of the Body was Paul the Apostle to the Gentiles. The only place in the Bible where you will find the gospel of God’s grace that is the only one that will save us today is in the books Christ instructed Paul to write for us : Romans through Philemon. That is where all of the doctrine and directions Christ expects us to know and follow are found. He gave them first to Paul who then gave them to us. Wanna be a good ambassador today, Paul taught us all!
