God’s Original Intent

We find in the New Testament that God has a plan and a purpose that is currently operating in the earth. Many who read the bible don’t recognize that this is happening and consequently get lost in the day to day struggles that we face. These messages get us back to what is important to the Father.

The Book – My Grace to You

Recently I have assembled all the teachings that I’ve produced here and elsewhere, and put them in one book entitles appropriately, My Grace to You.  This book creates a handy reference to the Greek concept of charis which I’ve uncovered in its use in the Bible.  Here is the book description: Most people study grace […]

Grace Unplugged

Over the weeks and months I have found there is also a facet that needs to be explored in order to fully explain what is missing. That facet is what the affect of the loss of grace was. Sure, we have all some understanding of it, but according to its truest meaning, we have no clue what it means to be out of grace or even recognize when we are. In other words, if you know what God knows about being disconnected from grace, or disgrace, then you’ll be able to know what the enemy will use to keep you out of the kingdom of God.

The Gift of Grace

An important aspect of grace that many overlook has to do with honor. This honor is evident in the kingdom by the presence of the throne of grace. As grace operated in the creation event, the highest honor is given to each object that reflects the fullness of the elements it came from.

Grace is a verb – so act that way.

When David desired to build a house for God he modified the verb of God’s presence towards a noun of God’s habitation – he halted the kingdom of grace to a place rather than a lifestyle. God still expects us to live “by grace” not “in grace.”

Living in Grace

In this eternal realm of grace miracles never happen – wholeness is natural. Consider that God has never experienced a miracle. Miracle point to God and He doesn’t need to experience a miracle to confirm to Him that He is. When you live in the realm of grace you don’t experience miracles – you experience the normal life of that realm.

The Goodness of Grace

In our Western culture our days begin at the crack of dawn where we hustle off to do our business and end at sunset when we collapse from exhaustion, desperately seeking rest. Grace operates from a place of rest first. Instead of working to rest, grace rests so that you can work. This is vital to understanding how the Kingdom operates in your life.

The Sons of Grace

Jesus clearly states that we have the ability to be perfect in the same manner that our Father in heaven is perfect. But what does that mean to be perfect? The Greek word is teleios and it means to be of full age, mature. The contrast to this term would be a babe in Christ. It implies a goal or destination – it is not a pass to heaven.

The Word of Grace II

God issues a word that has only been carefully created to follow a predetermined purpose, a purpose that always reflects the nature of His kingdom and conversely, His nature also. His inability to lie is only because if He did, He being associated with a lie would make Himself to be a lie too.

The Word of Grace

The word has within it the nature to release any manner of restraint and give full, unhindered opportunity to carry out its assignment based on the authority behind its use.

Judgment of Grace

When man fell, his first response to God was for mercy not grace. It was grace that he fell from. Mercy is the expression of grace that permits access to the throne while in a fallen state. Salvation restored our nature of grace in the kingdom.

Grace is about Relationship

I find it amazing that “the church” would outlaw the very cornerstone to its creation, the very symbol that, according to our opening passage, associates love to God. Why any church would think that it can practice its creed without the author of it is beyond me.

Grace is not . . .

Our Father’s plan and purpose has been established in eternity passed and He hasn’t changed it. If Jesus found favor with Him and man then we have the same nature available to us too. But if we keep attaching “unmerited” to it then it’s no wonder that we aren’t doing the greater works that Jesus said that we should do.

The Will of Grace

Grace has a purpose, a desire, a pleasure associated with it that you must understand simply because it is the motivation of its operation.

Grace to Give

The nature of forward giving in the kingdom comes from the throne of grace that sits over the line of time and is able to see in your life when you will need the benefit that can only come from a heavenly gift.

Grace that Abounds

I don’t know if you realize this but death, an anything that resembles or leads to it, doesn’t have a way of reproducing itself like life does. Life has the ability to create something called “generations” which echo the original pattern. Death is a one-trick pony while life is an entire circus.
