What is God’s Grace?

What is the biblical definition of grace ?


God’s biblical-truth of God’s “Graceis presented in “simplicity ” — AND —
reveals that 
Grace”  is NOT “mercy” NOR is it “unmerited-favor” — BUT — RATHER Grace” is ‘Empowerment’ (provided by God to us by God’s through His
teaching, lessons, instruction, coaching, and even His discipline and chastisement)…..AP gifts


BUT — the 
Pundits “complicate” this very simple fact into ‘confusion’ and ‘rhetoric’.

Grace is the empowerment of divine influence of God upon our heart. This empowerment is dispensed by the Spirit of Truth upon the meek and humble who hunger and thirst for righteousness.

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

For by grace are ye saved through faith
1Peter 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God (grace) through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. (faith is the wire connection/conduit, and grace is the empowerment/energy flow that lights our light)

The false or “fallen” belief out of the Protestant Reformation known as Reformed Theology through the false teachings of Calvin and Luther subtly perverted the word “grace”, “faith” just as they perverted the term “Sovereignty of God”.

Why did they teach this heresy? So they could live in sin and still be counted (imputed) righteous before God…………the true definition of “grace” is the power of God, not the unmerited favor of God “IE” the gift of God………….The word “Gift” means propitious unmerited favor. Mercy and Forgiveness of past sins is the unmerited favor “ie” the gift of God that none are deserving of..  Grace is the working substance which means empowerment of the Spirit that is imparted to the believer, in that the he/she has been given the power to live and walk in godliness, Titus 2-11,12.. Notwithstanding, it’s not of any religious works of man or his traditions that save. For only God can forgive past sins.

Gods grants mercy for the forgiveness of sins, and grace for the power to live godly lives.

The “original sin” lie pollutes the understanding of grace. It feeds the multi-billion $ sin management industry (the love of money is the root of all evil). They cannot overcome the gentile pagan holidays, another multi-billion $ industry, nor the devil, the world, and sin in them, therefore the devil has taken them over ,thus leaving them in a lukewarm state, constantly playing the blame game as to why they can sin like the Romans wretch, and still be saved.

Paul was pure, holy, and a man of God, not the Romans wretch born with a sin nature. They never read Romans chapters 6,7, 8 in context. These false Pundits love to be called a filthy wretches, AFTER their so called conversion, which totally negates what repentance and a working faith through love produces in the heart of TRUE BELIEVER. Paul WAS sold under sin, but repented, and is now sold to righteousness, and purity…. This is why any holiness people will always be the religious systems enemy; this is why Jesus was the enemy of the parasitical system, this is why the Anabaptists were the enemy of the Protestants and the RCC, this is why Pelagius was the enemy of Augustine. (the enemy of church and state)

We are saved by grace “the power of God”, through faith….meaning; We through faith have the “gift” of the power of God to live righteously Titus 2-11,12..This power of God >“IE” the “grace” is only bestowed by the means of a “GIFT” which means “unmerited favor” for the forgiveness of past sins, and the power of the blood to continue in faith, patience, enduring to the end. This continuance is always ever present after repentance, therefore the substance of that gift which is the power of the Holy Ghost is fell upon that believer Acts 2-38
.
Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God (Grace of God) unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus Christ, full of grace (the power of godliness to live a holy life working in the believer) and truth. The false understanding of grace has put the congregations to sleep, as it produces the bad fruit of a passive faith…the devils faith

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace (the power of God) are ye saved through faith (obedience and belief from the heart); and that not of yourselves (not of the power of our own will): it is the “gift”(the “unmerited favor” of God that He should be so gracious in that He forgives the past sins of the repented sinner.

Grace “IE” The power of God> is the gift “IE” the unmerited favor of God, poured out in a greater measure after the cross. The power to overcome sin. This is the same grace that Christ had. But when one falls from grace; they fall from the power of God by succumbing to temptation.

Faith, belief, and obedience, following Christ, all mean the same thing, they are inseparable, can’t have one without the other, lest it be the faith of devils, which manifest the works of disobedience.

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God {the power of God} that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men {the unmerited favor},12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; This is the grace of God, which is the power of God> that brings salvation. The fact that it has “appeared to all men” is Gods’ unmerited favor, and proof of His benevolent love for all of mankind John 3-16.

Acts 4:33 And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. (The power of God was now upon all who adhered to the gospel)

Acts 15:11 But we believe that through the grace (the power) of the LORD Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they. (saved by the power of our LORD)

Acts 20:32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, (the power of the Word) which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

The false prophets teach that grace is a penal substitution of unmerited favor, in that all sin is forgiven, past, present, and future, by a simple acknowledgement. Because they understand not the biblical definitions of “confesseth” and “conversation” within the KJV.

I ask; was Jesus full of “unmerited favor”? Was Jesus not worthy, nay may God forbid…No, HE was most certainly worthy and full of the power of God (grace) to overcome sin and by Him is this a gift of God to those that should pick up their cross and follow Christ. Yes, most assuredly HE was full of Gods mercy as well, for God is merciful towards repented sinners, even the angels in heaven rejoice over one “repented” sinner, however not a sinner who remains a willful sinner. For these are they that despise the law and trample underfoot the blood atonement of Christ in Hebrews 10.
Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Grace is the power of God working in us and through us.  His forgiveness is the unmerited favour working throguh mercy justified by the blood of Christ…The abundance of extra Grace in the post cross era came about because death could not hold the Creator of life. Something new was created through Jesus Christ He having fused Himself to His own creation then dying in order that a new type of life become available to men. The power of this new life is called grace. Grace works in our inner man so that we can truly cleave to God and abide in His presence. Grace is the keeping power of God towards us. Grace makes us holy by placing us in Christ.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Sin is the transgression of the law, and all the law can do is convict one of sin through the Spirit John 16-8, because the law is written on the hearts of men.. This is because the law addresses conduct of a man and calls him to repentance through his conscience conviction, while the Spirit of life in Jesus Christ addresses the INWARD man which circumcises the heart to an obedience of love. Thus faith establishes the law within the heart of the believer, Romans 3-31.

The law written on stone tablets was the MINISTRATION OF DEATH for it brought knowledge of right living to men and thus when men CHOSE TO DO EVIL they would die spiritually, meaning separated apart from God. (Rom 7:7-11, Rom 5:12). The New Covenant is of the Spirit, and not of the letter (2Cor 3:6). The ministration of death, written on stones was DONE AWAY WITH (2Cor 3:11) but it is only done away with for those who are in Jesus Christ who walk after the Spirit (Gal 5:18).

The New Covenant is all about purity of heart as we abide in the Spirit of life in Jesus Christ. This is the grace of God. Only by the power of God “HIS grace” can we overcome sin. Grace is the power of God’s divine influence upon the heart of faith, through the person of the Holy Ghost, which brings about a righteous lifestyle that opposes sin at every opportunity. Rebuke the devil and he will flee. This is the power of God..
Grace is (the power of God), this is the substance of the “gift” bestowed upon repented sinners, they receive the power of God in their lives producing an even greater sanctification (the power in the blood)…The gift means unmerited favor and forgiveness of past sins. The grace is the substance of that gift poured out in abundance. This power of grace was the mystery the angels desired to know and could not understand how it would work in 1Peter1-12. As to how the believer would receive this power of God in their lives and bring about a changed man…Jesus Christ “is come” in the flesh 1 John 4-3.

There is only one gospel that the apostle Paul taught; the gospel of salvation Romans 1:16 , Ephesians 1:13>which is the gospel of grace> Acts 20:24, which is the gospel of the kingdom> Matthew 4:23, Matthew 9:35, Matthew 24:14, Mark 1:14>which is the gospel of Christ>Mark 1:1, Romans 2:16, Romans 15:29, 1 Corinthians 9:12, 2 Corinthians 2:12, 2 Corinthians 4:4, 2 Corinthians 9:13, 2 Corinthians 10:14, Galatians 1:7, 1 Thessalonians 3:2, 2 Thessalonians 1:8. which is the gospel of God 1 Thessalonians 2:2, 1 Thessalonians 2:8, 1 Thessalonians 2:9, 1 Peter 4:17, 1 Timothy 1:11, 2 Timothy 1:8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; (which is the grace of God)

Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel..The true gospel has the empowerment of grace that transforms  and the false gospel does not..the false teaching of “grace” today as being UNMERITED FAVOUR in the sense of forgiveness of past, present, and future sins through a mystic alter call is of another gospel. The truth is: that grace was given by unmerited favor. Meaning we were not deserving of this power of God that would redeem us, but by Gods favor did HE bestowed grace in a measure of abundance upon those that should repent and believe on Christ and HIS gospel, of which Paul says is the power unto salvation…

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God {the GRACE OF GOD} unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

My grace, (my empowerment), is sufficient, said God to Paul. Grace is defined as: strength and power. Biblical grace is the power of God to help mankind with his infirmities through the Comforter, our companion and Helper in tribulation. The apostle Paul states that he “glories in his infirmities” (pleased to be made aware of his sufferings) so that he can have the power of grace to help him meet the divine standard. Grace is therefore for the purpose of supplying an absence of spiritual power for the benefit of the Christians’ walk in faith. This grace of God has been given to all men Titus 2-11, for those that should exercise their faith and receive. For I perceive that God is no respecter of persons.

Ephesians 3:7 Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.

The gift of grace is given by “effectual working of His power.” Grace is the enabling ability supplied by God via the Holy Ghost to meet the will of God in the lives of the believers. Paul was a POWERFUL minister, this POWER was not his own, but the gift of grace that enabled him to do the things he did by yielding to the Spirit! The effectual working power of God in the life of the Christian is called grace.

Grace is the substance of the free gift…This is what Peter spoke of in Acts 2-38, “you shall receive the free gift of the Holy Ghost”, (the Divine influence upon the heart, through the power of the Holy Ghost), teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; this is the grace of God, this is the substance of the free gift, and could only be given because of the Cross and the Blood of our Saviour at Calvary.

37 “Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
{by
unmerited favor past sins are forgiven} and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost”…… (the power, or grace, that is received in the free gift  is the person of the Holy Ghost) the Holy Spirit is fully God where indwells all the power of God, full of the grace of God. The power in the blood is twofold, 1) it satisfies the conditions of salvation and the forgiveness of past sins set forth by God the father, 2) it allows for the power of His grace to be bestowed upon the believer.

The substance of the free gift is the power of God, God’s grace via the person of the Holy Ghost>John 1-4, this is Jesus Christ “is come” in the flesh. The power of God living in the flesh temple of the believer. However, the church today that is built upon Calvin and Luther’s false teachings will say that this is a works salvation. Why? Because they understand not the true meaning of GRACE. The only way to accesses this grace of God is through the door of repentance at the mercy seat of Christ. Jesus stands at the door knocking, calling us out of Babylon unto the door of repentance, then HE will come in and sup with you, and you with HIM. (Rev 3-20)

While seeking such power, men will foolishly look for many alternative doors by way of self inventive means to boast in. This is the vain power of a man seeking to lassoooooo the Holy Ghost with a rope…(the Pecos Bill method)…remember; it is not of man’s religious works, lest any man should boast, but rather it is of God’s grace, the power of God, the works of godliness, thus obeying God’s word by faith is the power to live Godly in this present world Titus 2-12… all Glory to God…Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Let us keep in remembrance the words of God written through the apostle John in  John chapter 13-33 Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come; so now I say to you.

34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.…{this is the grace and power of God working in the heart of the believer that produces good fruit}

John 16-7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.

 

Jesus told HIS disciples that He was with them but soon HE would be “IN” them…Meaning the power of God, “IN” the person of the HOLY GHOST that would live in them at Pentecost…Jesus Christ “is come” in the flesh 1 John 1:4-3..

Grace Empowers (teaching, discipline, chastisement, etc.) obedient followers.
Acts 7:22 (educated); I Corinthians 11:32 (disciplined); 2 Corinthians 6:9 (punished);
I Timothy 1:20 (taught); 2 Timothy 2:25 (correcting); Revelation 3:19 (discipline);
Hebrews 12:6 (disciplines); Hebrews 12:10 (chastens)
