GOD'S GRACE BIBLE STUDY TRUTH
WHAT IS GOD'S GRACE MEANING


CHRISTIANITY OASIS
DENOMINATION AND DOCTRINE

I am often asked, what my "doctrine" is and what "denomination" I am.

The answer is simple ... I am just a Christian. I realize that interpretation, pride and prejudice have divided the TRUE Church into many different "denominations" but, that was not what Jesus intended. That is satan's plan and is certainly not an example of God's Grace and Love. Most of the divisions are based upon interpretation of the Bible. Other divisions stemmed from the pride of individuals wanting control, dating way back.

Do not misunderstand me, there are many false Religions that one should beware of and to find out what one's beliefs are should be done, for we are taught to "Prove all things."

1 Thessalonians 5:21
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.

And to check the fruits (words and deeds) for a tree is known by it's fruit.

Matthew 7:17-20
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Therefore, since it seems that the answers, to these questions, are so very important to some. I will share with you of that which I believe in ... God's Grace.

I believe that Jesus is the Son of the one and only Living God ... I believe that Jesus came in the flesh to die for our sins and He did so, then He was resurrected after 3 days and that He will absolutely return for His chosen and those who chose Him during the End Times. I believe in God's Grace which He offers to each of us, which comes from the Blood of Jesus

Although Christianity Oasis created for Christians, so that we could have a safe and pleasant environment, by which to explore the Internet ... Do not be deceived into believing that the lost and troubled children of God are forbidden to enter our Oasis. These lost and troubled children of God are the potential Christians which will wander in here and when they do, they will have an opportunity to explore their own faith in an environment that is FREE of judgment. These potential Christians will be free to choose to accept the Grace of God.

WHAT IS GOD'S GRACE

For those who can hear ...

I will reveal to you the TRUTH of God's Grace today, and the TRUTH is this ...

God sacrificed His only Son to get His children into Heaven when they were sentenced to eternal damnation. Think about that for a second when you ask what is God's Grace meaning ... God's Grace is what had God sacrifice His SON to get YOU into Heaven.

John 3:16
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.

But, why did God CHOOSE to sacrifice His Son?

It is very simple ... 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.

John 3:17
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.



GOD'S GRACE BIBLE STUDY RESEARCH
WHAT IS GOD'S GRACE FIELD TRIP

You 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.

The Bible is CLEAR ...

The first step that you have to do to get into Heaven is ...

BELIEVE IN JESUS

John 6:28-29
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.



SELF PROCLAIMED
RELIGIOUS LEADERS

There are a few Self proclaimed, Christian leaders, who have written to me, suggesting that law and works prevails over God's Grace and say that I should preach as such. These rascals even demand that the burden on Christians is to be heavy, so that it makes it difficult to enter the gates of Heaven. These individuals have no compassion, understanding or love for others, in their heart. They have no concept of the love that God has for His children. Their desire for self edification, blinds them from the truth.

My answer to these "wanna be" Religious leader's demands for me to teach law and works instead of God's Grace is and will always be ... Not A Chance !!!

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) because God had made a New Covenant and that is why the Holy Spirit directed them to share this:

Acts 15:28-29
It seemed good to the Holy Ghost, 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.

As Peter said so eloquently ...

Acts 15:10-11
Now therefore
why tempt ye God, to put a yoke upon the neck of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? But we believe that through the Grace of the LORD Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.

In short if you are not Jewish ... YOU are a GENTILE.

You are not BOUND to JEWISH customs of the Old Covenant.

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

As Christians, we are bound under the New Covenant and not the Old Covenant just as our Heavenly Father said that He would do in old Testament prophecy ...

Man violated the Old Covenant with God and God destroyed the Old Covenant.

Zechariah 11:10-13
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.



GOD'S GRACE BIBLE STUDY ON COVENANTS
WHAT IS GOD'S GRACE ORIGIN

The Old Covenant ended when Jesus died and Judas Iscariot and the Religious leaders weighed His price for 30 pieces of silver (As God's prophecy predicted) and they crucified our Lord and He died for our sins as to bring in the New Covenant to give us another chance. So many fail to see this Truth and prefer to suggest that our works is the way to enter Heaven instead of God's Love and Grace by sacrificing His Son as our ONLY way to enter the New Covenant.

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 AFTER YOU RECEIVE
GOD'S GRACE.

God's Grace reveals that if you TRULY believe in Jesus and the TRUTH that He was willing to die for you, and did, that you would know that He loves you so much that 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. 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 get up, dust yourself off, carry on and never surrender.

SAINTS ... 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

HERE IS THE TRUTH ...

Galatians 2:21
I do not frustrate the Grace of God
. For if righteousness comes by the LAW ... Then Christ is dead in vain.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by Grace are ye saved through faith; 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.

John 16:2-3
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, God had a plan and His Will ... Was done.



GOD'S GRACE BIBLE STUDY CONCERNS
WHAT IS GOD'S GRACE WARNING

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 ...

JESUS SAID...

John 8:7
He that is without sin among you,let him first cast a stone at her
.

Pharisee casting stones

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.

Luke 18:10-14
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

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 uplift themselves.

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, 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 off laughing.

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 STORY IS ECHOED THROUGH THE ENTIRE BIBLE

Matthew 25:40
... Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Be kind to strangers, it could be an Angel testing you.

Hebrews 13:2
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

WHAT IS GOD'S GRACE DEBATE
GOD'S GRACE BIBLE VERSES PROOF

LAW
VERSUS GOD'S GRACE

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 God's Grace by saying such things as "If you have ever done this or that, you are damned."

Matthew 23:13
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 been in a divorce, 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 allow that nonsense to prevent you from receiving God's Grace which is free to absolutely everyone. When you truly believe in Jesus and repent, God forgives your past sins ... Period !!!


LOST LOVE AND FAITH

Now, there are many people that were Christians and have stopped believing in God, because something really bad happened. Perhaps they suffered from ... Lost Love. For example, if they lose a friend or family member to divorce or death. 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 have lost that which was most dear to me, but I also know this ...

Christians encounter trials and tribulation just like everybody else, and to blame God and to stop believing in God, will not explain away the loss or anything else productive. Sometimes these things are allowed to happen for a reason, that we do not understand.

Isaiah 57:1-2
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 his uprightness.

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.

Understand this TRUTH ...

Every day, each of us makes choices that has 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 factor.

See the Book of Job

I have no idea why God allows certain things to happen, it would depend on the situation ... I do know that God's New Covenant gives us free will and many people abuse that free will and do things which cause others pain and suffering. Regardless of why, it is His Will and perhaps one day we will understand why certain things were allowed to happen.

Until then ... We must trust HIM.

I will now reveal an awesome SECRET ...

Christians have been given a gift to defend themselves in times of trial or tribulation.
The gift is called the ... Holy Spirit.

He is a gift, left here to comfort us ... John 16:7


He will speak to you, if you will listen
Hebrews 3:7

He will help you during your trials and tribulations.
John 14:16-21 John 14:26 John 15:26-27 John 16:13-14

He is here to help you face the trials and tribulations that come upon every soul.

HE IS HERE FOR YOU !!!

GET TO KNOW THE HOLY SPIRIT


GOD'S GRACE BIBLE STUDY SUMMARY
WHAT IS GOD'S GRACE ANSWER

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.

OR

BELIEVE IN JESUS, WHO DIED FOR US

And live FOREVER in Heaven.

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.

STORY OF JESUS


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

Sooooooooooooo, to answer the original question ...

This is my "Doctrine" ...

This is my "denomination" ...

What I believe in, is ...

GOD'S GRACE

Through our Lord Jesus Christ

He died for us, was resurrected
and is coming back for us.

I ... like those before me, am but a fisherman.
I catch them and God cleans them.

Take care and may our Father bless you and yours.


Sincerely,

Servant of God
