Free from Accusation

Free from Accusation

IF I SAY TO A BROTHER THAT THERE IS NOW NO CONDEMNATION (Rom 8:1) TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, ALMOST IMMEDIATELY THE RESPONSE WILL BE A JOYFUL AMEN! ON THE OTHER HAND, IF YOU TELL HIM THE GOSPEL TRUTH THAT IN CHRIST, GOD IS NOT COUNTING SINS AGAINST US ANYMORE, UNBELIEF IS AN ALMOST CERTAIN RESPONSE YOU WILL RECEIVE.
(2Cor 5:19a) “God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.”

NOTICE WHAT ONE OF THE NEW COVENANT TENETS SAYS:
(Heb 8:12) “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”

DAVID ALSO SPOKE OF THE BLESSEDNESS OF A MAN WHOSE SIN THE LORD WILL NEVER COUNT AGAINST HIM.
(Rom 4:6) David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the man to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
(Rom 4:7) “Blessed are they whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.
(Rom 4:8) Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him.”

CHRIST HAS RECONCILED US TO GOD THROUGH HIS SACRIFICIAL DEATH ON THE CROSS IN ORDER TO PRESENT US HOLY IN HIS SIGHT, WITHOUT BLEMISH AND FREE FROM ACCUSATION.
(Col 1:21-22) “Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

Made Righteous in Christ

Made Righteous in Christ

SALVATION IS NEVER ABOUT YOUR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, BUT THE RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT GOD FREELY GIVES TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN CHRIST JESUS.
(Rom 3:20) Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
(Rom 3:21-23) “But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

NOT ONLY DO WE RECEIVE THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS IN CHRIST, BUT WE ARE MADE HOLY AS WELL AND BECOME PART OF GOD’S FAMILY; SO JESUS OUR LORD IS NOT ASHAMED TO CALL US BROTHERS.
(Hebrews 2:11) “Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

Willful Ignorance

Willful Ignorance

I HAVE NOTICED THAT MANY OF OUR PULPITS TODAY ARE WILLINGLY IGNORANT WHEN IT COMES TO THE “GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE” THAT CHRIST REVEALED TO THE APOSTLE PAUL.
(Gal 1:11-12) “I want you to know brothers that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ.”

BEAR IN MIND, THE GOD OF THIS AGE IS ACTIVELY BLINDING THE MINDS OF PEOPLE SO THAT THEY CANNOT SEE THE LIGHT OF THE GOSPEL OF THE GLORY OF CHRIST.
(2Cor 4:3-4) “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.”

NOTICE THE APOSTLE PAUL’S DECLARATION CONCERNING THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S GRACE REVEALED TO HIM BY CHRIST.
(Act 20:24) “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the Gospel of God’s Grace.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

 

On Fire for Jesus

On Fire for Jesus

IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT IF THE SUNLIGHT PASSES THROUGH A MAGNIFYING LENS POINTED AT A PIECE OF PAPER, IT BURNS. LIKEWISE, IF YOUR MIND IS FOCUSED ON CHRIST, HIS LOVE AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS, YOU WILL BE ON FIRE!
(Heb 3:1) Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
(Heb 12:2) Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

IN THE TRANSFIGURATION OF JESUS, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER SPOKE AND EXPLICITLY SAID TO LISTEN TO CHRIST.
(Matt.17:5b) “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. LISTEN TO HIM!”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

GIFTED TO SERVE

GIFTED TO SERVE

IN CHRIST, EACH OF US RECEIVED CHRIST’S GIFT OF GRACE AS HE APPORTIONED IT.
(Eph 4:7) “But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.”

HOWEVER, IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE FOR US TO BE GIFTED ON CERTAIN AREAS BUT NOT USE IT FOR HIS GLORY AND HONOR. FOR THIS REASON, WE ARE URGED NOT TO RECEIVE GOD’S GRACE IN VAIN.
(2Cor 6:1) “As God’s fellow workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.”

THE APOSTLE PAUL FOR INSTANCE DECLARED THAT HE WORKED HARDER THAN ALL THE OTHER APOSTLES, AND YET, HE SAID, “NOT I, BUT THE GRACE OF GOD THAT WAS WITH ME.”
(1Cor 15:10) “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
