Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Prepare for End Times Bible study program. This is our awe inspiring and thought provocative Gods Grace Bible verses quest for facts concerning the answer to the question ... What is the Grace of God and how does Gods Grace affect Christians today? The perfectly pure and heartwarming message found in the Grace Bible verses which we have shared within this What is the Grace of God teaching journey will truly enhance your be-YOU-tiful Christian walk.
Like many other souls who have made poor choices at times in their lives, you may feel you are unworthy of to be forgiven of your sins both past and present. Many times, you may have been told that you cannot be forgiven THIS IS NOT TRUTH !!!
The Bible is clear that absolutely everyone has an opportunity to accept Gods Grace. For those that can hear ... I will reveal to you the TRUTH of Gods Grace today, and the TRUTH is this that God sacrificed His only Son to get His beloved people into Heaven. Think about that for a second. God sacrificed His ONLY SON to get YOU into Heaven.
HOW TO OBTAIN GRACE
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should
not perish, but have everlasting life.
However, the next verse needs to be understood as well:
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
But, why did God
CHOOSE to sacrifice His Son?
Our Gods Grace Bible verses journey answers the questions ... Why is the Grace of God needed and what is the Grace of God?
It is very simple as to why we need Gods Grace ... Because God loves us so very much and
mankind had done so much bad, that all the sacrificing in the
world would not cleanse away the sin. See, long ago, sacrifices
were needed to cleanse away the sins that mankind had committed
against God. But now ... Jesus is the eternal Sacrifice. Believing in Jesus, cleanses away OUR past sins. God loved us so
much, that even knowing the only sacrifice that would suffice,
was His own Son. He decided to do it anyway as to save His
children. One more thing to ponder on ... Jesus Himself CHOSE to lay down His life for YOU as well.
The Bible is CLEAR that the first step that you have to do to get into Heaven is ...
Believe in Jesus.
Let us take a little Gods Grace Bible verses field trip. Many are confused as to which laws in the Bible, apply to Christians today. Let's look into the Grace of God path to peace shared within the Bible, shall we?
The Apostles learned from the Holy Spirit that the Jewish customs and some of the Jewish Laws were NOT to
be placed upon the Gentiles (anyone who is not Jewish).
Then said they unto Him, What shall we do,
that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered
and said unto them,
This is the work of God, that ye believe on Him whom
He hath sent.
As well they should not be under the Old Covenant
as God has made a
and that is why it is said that the Holy Spirit directed this:
It seemed good to the
and to us, to require no more burden than these
necessary things, that you
abstain from meats offered to idols,
and from blood,
and from things strangled, and from fornication:
from which if you keep yourselves, you’ll do well.
In short if you are not Jewish ... YOU are a
GENTILE and therefore you are not BOUND to JEWISH customs of the Old Covenant.
As we sojourn along into our Gods Grace Bible verses adventure, we must remember that as Christians, we are bound under the NEW COVENANT (New Testament) and we are NOT bound under the
Old Covenant which just as our Heavenly Father has said clearly that He has broken the Old
Covenant. It is over. Let me show you the true essence of the answer to ... What is the Grace of God? Keep in mind the following prophecy was shared in the Bible way before Jesus was here.
For the law was given by Moses, but GRACE and TRUTH
came by Jesus Christ.
And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it
asunder, that I might break my Covenant which
I had made with all the people. And it was broken in
that day: and so the poor of the flock that waited
upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD. And I
said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price;
and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price
thirty pieces of silver. And the LORD said unto
me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I
was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces
of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house
of the LORD.
The Old Covenant ended when Jesus died and Judas
Iscariot and the Religious leaders weighed His price for 30
pieces of silver and they crucified our Lord and He died for our
sins. The NEW COVENANT then began. So many fail to see this and fear they will never be worthy.
Now, make no mistake my
friend ... By no means is Gods Grace a "get out of hell free" card. You are still responsible for your actions once you receive the Grace of God.
If you TRULY believe in Jesus and the TRUTH that He died for you and that He loves you so much. You will want to do what He wants you to do because you would know that He is looking out for your best interests. You
will try hard not to do things that would make him ashamed or
disappointed in you.
This Gods Grace Bible verses study teaches that you may fall, but always remember that only
a worm is free from the worry of stumble and the real test is to
see if you will repent, get up, dust yourself off, carry on and never
... ARE JUST THE SINNERS
THAT FALL DOWN AND GET UP !!!
As time passes, you will find that you
begin to make the right choices, out of love ... Not fear of punishment. It will be your FAITH
that establishes your WORKS.
I do not frustrate the Grace of
God. For if righteousness
comes by the LAW ... Then Christ is dead in vain.
by Grace are ye saved
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
In TRUTH ... It was some self proclaimed
Religious leaders, back in Jesus' day, that were constantly
following Jesus around quoting LAW. His responses were so
compelling that they ran away in fear and confusion. They became
so afraid of losing their high places, that they devised a plan
and had JESUS crucified ... They used LAWS to do it. They
claimed they were doing a God service.
Jesus said it best, when the Self
proclaimed Religious leaders of that time brought a woman before
Jesus, to be judged for a sin that she had committed. They asked
Jesus what should be done to her, knowing that the LAW
said that she should be stoned to death ...
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the
time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think
that he doeth God service. And these things will
they do unto you, because they have not known the
Father, nor me.
THEY WERE WRONG !!!
But, as you will discover in this what is the Grace of God lesson, God had a plan and His Will ... Was
He that is without sin
among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
So, If you are one of the "holier than
thou" teachers of LAW
and elect to judge the lost, which are
potential Christians ... Beware, lest you find yourself
being judged, as you have judged these lost souls, and YOU
losing God's Grace.
Many Christians and even some Churches, judge other people by
the clothes they wear, length of hair, which side of town they
live on, the color of their skin, past experiences and mistakes
they have made, etc ...
It is very sad that these individuals, who consider themselves
to be better than another of God's children (even though, they
know in their hearts that they were also forgiven of their sins
of the past, and received God's Grace and still sin) and that these people would find it
necessary to judge another, in some vain attempt to appear to
Pretending to be doing a God service.
Their view makes the Cross, of no effect.
God sacrificed His only Son to get His
children into Heaven.
Now, after what has been shared in this Gods Grace Bible verses voyage, tell me ... Do you think for a
moment that our loving God is sitting up there saying to His
children, "If you so much as make a mistake, I will put you in
the depths of Hell" ... After, He let His son die a painful
death to get His children into Heaven?
Of course not ...
THIS REMINDS ME OF A STORY
There was a man that we will call Mr.
Smith, who was sitting in Church with his wife. He had just
dozed off, during the pastor's sermon, when he awoke to the
sound of the collection plate coming around. He watched as the
people next to him put in what they could afford, which was very
little. When the collection plate reached him, he cleared his
throat very loud, as to gain the attention of all those around
him, and put a hundred dollar bill into the collection plate.
When Church was over, he was edging his way through the crowd
towards the front door and saw a statue of Jesus. He thought to
himself, "he needs a haircut and a shave" ...
On the way to his favorite restaurant for
brunch, he came upon a stoplight and saw one of THOSE people.
You know, the ones with a sign that says "will work for food"
... This guy had long hair, a beard and very dirty, worn out
clothing. As he came to a stop, Mr. Smith rolled up the electric
windows in his new Cadillac and turned his head away from the
poor looking man, who was now just outside his window, with his
hand stretched out towards Mr. Smith. After what seemed like
forever, to Mr. Smith, the stoplight turned green. Before Mr.
Smith pulled off, he rolled down the window and yelled out, "Hey,
ya bum ... get a job" and then sped
A few years later, Mr. Smith died of
cancer and ended up at God's Judgment seat. Jesus asked Mr.
Smith why it was that he thought he was worthy to get into
Heaven. Mr. Smith said proudly that he donated a hundred dollars
every time his wife could drag him to Church. Jesus asked if
that was the only reason and Mr. Smith said, "Yes, of course, I
have paid for my way into Heaven" ...
Jesus looked at Mr. Smith and said ... "I
disagree ... You failed to have compassion and love for your
fellow man, when the opportunity arose. You are greedy and
selfish and are not worthy to enter Heaven." Mr. Smith,
convicted by Jesus' Words, turned and started walking away with
his head hung low. Then Jesus said ... "And, by the way Mr.
Smith ... I am no bum and I DO have a JOB."
The moral of this Grace of God story
is echoed through the entire Bible as the Gods Grace Bible verses reveal His Unconditional Love for us.
What you do unto the
least of my brethren, you do unto Me.
THE GRACE OF GOD
I have been told by many of the lost
souls, that I encounter, that some Christians and even some
Christian leaders, make it very difficult for those who would
become Christians to do so because they elect to preach LAW to the potential Christian
instead of the Grace of God by saying such things as "If you have
ever done this or that, you are damned."
Be kind to
strangers, it could be an Angel testing you.
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men:
for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye
them that are entering to go in.
For example ... If a potential
Christian had ever
divorced their spouse, stolen anything, abused
drugs, had sex out of marriage, smoked, cussed or anything else
one can think of ... It somehow makes these Self appointed,
"holier than thou" teachers of law, feel that they have the
right to find the potential Christian
unworthy of God's Grace and to pass judgment. This causes
the potential Christian to walk away and never
consider becoming a Christian again.
My friend ... If any of this has ever
happened to you, do not let it prevent you from receiving God's Grace which is FREE to EVERYONE.
When you truly believe in Jesus, God forgives your past sins ...
Now, we are going to take a pit stop along our Gods Grace Bible verses trail to discuss the fact that some Christians have stopped believing in God, because something
really bad happened. Perhaps they suffered from ...
Lost Love. For example, they lose a friend or
family member to divorce or even worse and the number one reason people leave Christianity ...
Death of a loved one. They decide to blame God or
say, if there is a God, why would He allow this to happen.
I want you to know that I TRULY feel your pain, for I too have lost
that which was most dear to me, but I also know this ...
Christians encounter tribulation and trials just like everybody
else, and to stop believing in God, will not explain away the
Sometimes these things are allowed to happen for a reason that
we do not understand.
The righteous perisheth, and no man
layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away,
none considering that
the righteous is taken away
from the evil to come.
He shall enter into peace:
they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in
Reasons that we cannot even fathom. I
have found that nine times out of ten, it was caused by
negligence or a decision made on mankind's part.
Every day, each of us
makes choices that have the capability to affect others. Whether
the choice be good or bad. God allows mankind to make their own
decisions because He does not want puppets. He allows us free
will. The other one out of ten is what I call the test or trial
See the Book of Job
The truth of our Gods Grace Bible verses teaching is that I have no idea why God allows certain
things to happen in any specific situation, but regardless of why, He allowed it and
perhaps one day we will understand why certain things were
allowed to happen. Until then ... We must trust HIM.Remember that Christians have been given a gift to defend themselves in times of trial or tribulation. He is called the ... Holy Spirit.
He is a gift, left here to comfort us
He will speak to you, if you will listen
The Grace of God proves that He will help you during your trials and
tribulations and even to escape your sin.
He is here to help you face the trials
and tribulations that come upon every man, woman and child on
HE IS HERE FOR YOU !!!
It all comes down to a choice. The choice
is yours. Nobody can make it for you. You can either deny this
TRUTH and be cast into the Lake of Fire ... FOREVER.
BELIEVE IN JESUS, WHO DIED FOR US ...
And live FOREVER in
EITHER WAY ...
Forever is a LONNNNNNNG Time!
Some people ask, but what if all this
is just a bunch of superstition or fairy tales. I ask you this
What if it is not?
Be wise ... CHOOSE JESUS.
Check out the New
Testament and in particular the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John and read all about Jesus and decide for yourself if He is
worthy of your belief and trust.
Check out this awesome
study about our Lord.
Now I ask you ... What do you have to lose by just believing
in Jesus? It sounds like a tiny investment for great returns.
He is the best eternal life insurance
policy, money can't buy.
I want you to think about something. I
will gain no fame or fortune by your decision to make the right
choice of believing in Jesus. In fact, I most likely do not even
know you and never will, at least on Earth. And yet, I take the
time and effort to share this TRUTH with you today for you to
consider and ponder upon. The reason for this is ...
It is the TRUTH.
Take care and may our Father bless you and yours.
