Every which way you turn Jesus, He is perfect. He is altogether lovely.
Jesus sees the unsaved as sheep without a shepherd, not rebellious people. Jesus is the Good Shepherd.
Acts 20:20-21 - Repentance means "change of mind". Change your mind to believe that God is for you, not against you. When the Truth is being preached, repentance is going on.
"You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house. I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus." (Acts 20:20-21 NJKV)
Right believing produces right living. The righteous shall live by faith.
Fruit of the spirit versus works of the flesh. Fruit is the result of life. Works is the result of effort.
People can get very legalistic about faith. Faith is to help and to lift people up.
Romans 1:16-17 - "Salvation" here is "sozo" in Hebrew which means healing, safety from danger, as well as salvation from hell. Paul's message is about being able to receive good that we do not deserve, because Jesus received all the bad that we deserved. It is not the traditional belief of doing good before receiving good. People suffering from porn addiction, drug addiction and all addictions, can be delivered. In the midst of your sin, declare that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. The devil and your flesh will come screaming at you, calling you a hypocrite. The devil wants you to define yourself by your actions. God defines you by Jesus!
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”" (Romans 1:16-17 NKJV)
If you are a believer, God will always see you as righteous, even in the midst of your sin. This is because what Jesus did at the cross is greater than the sin that Adam did. This knowledge produces a rest in us that allows the fruit of the spirit to be produced in us.
Grace is the gospel. Grace is not a teaching, it is the person of our Lord Jesus Christ.
You can't be under grace and not be holy, just like how you can't be touching water and not be wet.
We should not condemn other ministries that don't have the revelation of grace yet.
Romans 5:19 - Because of Adam's sin, sickness and death came into the world. God hates death. Sickness and death were not God's dream for us when He created man. God hates sin because He loves us. God hates sin to the degree that He loves us. He reconciled this by saving us, and judging Jesus at the cross. Jesus was condemned at the cross so that we have a righteous foundation to be righteous today. Once we are righteous, we cannot lose the gift of righteousness. We sin because we are sinners. We are sinners because of Adam's sin. By Jesus's obedience - One Man's obedience, we are made righteous!
"For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous." (Romans 5:19 NKJV)
Obedience of faith is nothing more than right believing.
When we were sinners, there were some good things that we did. But those good things did not change our status as a sinner.
Pastor Joseph Prince has never slept bodily with any other woman than his wife, Wendy.
If we can stop the wrong and do the right, we don't need Jesus. Israel had the Law, but they were unable to obey it perfectly.
I John 4:17 - Just as Jesus is, glorified at the Father's right hand, so are we right now in this world.
"Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world." (I John 4:17 NKJV)
Galatians 1:6-9 - Nowadays, preaching grace is widely considered as preaching a different gospel. In the beginning of the church, anything other than preaching grace was considered preaching another gospel. The New Testament double-curse is upon anyone who preaches any other gospel than grace. If we preach the gospel of grace, we will be doubly-blessed.
"I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed." (Galatians 1:6-9 NKJV)
Acts 13:38-44 - Paul preached the unqualified, full, and pure gospel. As a result, almost the whole city came together to listen to the Word of God.
"Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses. Beware therefore, lest what has been spoken in the prophets come upon you: ‘Behold, you despisers, Marvel and perish! For I work a work in your days, A work which you will by no means believe, Though one were to declare it to you.’ ” So when the Jews went out of the synagogue, the Gentiles begged that these words might be preached to them the next Sabbath. Now when the congregation had broken up, many of the Jews and devout proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God. On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God."(Acts 13:38-44 NKJV)
The Bible says if we put new wine into old wineskin, we will lose both the old and new wine. There can be no mixture of Law and Grace.
Not everyone is saved. That is a heresy. Only those who put their trust in Jesus Christ are saved.
It is the devil's tactic to intimidate pastors into compromising the grace message, because of seeing people in their church who are living a sinful lifestyle.
The gospel was designed for us to be understood, through the Holy Spirit.
Preaching the whole counsel of God does not mean mixing Law and Grace. It refers to preaching grace and revealing Jesus out of both the Old Testament and New Testament.
Acts 2:40-41 - When God gave the Law at Mount Sinai, the first Day of Pentecost, three thousand people died. When the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles on the Day of Pentecost, Peter preached a sermon and three thousand people were saved! The essence of grace is to supply us, the essence of the Law is to demand from us.
"And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them." (Acts 2:40-41 NKJV)
The devil uses the personal pronoun to drop a thought of self-condemnation into your mind. Don't accept it! Just declare, "as Jesus is, so am I in this world!"
Romans 5:17 - It's by the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness that we reign in life!
"For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:17 NKJV)
The greatest way to honor Jesus is to receive Jesus, and all the goodness that He died to give us. He did no sin, in Him is no sin, but He received our sin and was judged on our behalf.
