What Is God's Grace?
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."
And to check the fruits (words and deeds) for a tree is known by it
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree
bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,
neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that
bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Therefore, since it seems that the answers, to these questions, are
so very important to some people, I will share with you that which I
believe in with this, What is God's Grace Bible study. Let's
get after it, shall we?
I believe that
Jesus our precious Lord and Saviour, is the one and only begotten Son of the one and only absolutely awe inspiring Living
I believe that Jesus, came in the flesh with the intent 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 our Heavenly Father offers to each and every
of us. This Grace 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 Christianity
Oasis community. God forbid.
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?
God's Grace Bible study proclamation ... 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.
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.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Let's take a lil Christian Grace of God meaning field trip, shall we? 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 that the first step that you have to do to get into Heaven is ...
Believe in Jesus
28 Then said they unto Him, What shall we do,
that we might work the works of God?
29 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
What is God's Grace Bible study warning ... 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:
28 For it seemed good to the
Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these
29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if you keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
As Peter said so eloquently ...
10 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?
11 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.
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.
10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I
might break my Covenant which I had made with all the
11 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.
12 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
13 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.
What is God's Grace Bible Study on Origins
Christian Grace of God Meaning and Covenants
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
Now, make no mistake my friend ...
By no means is God's 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 and not fear of punishment. It will be your faith that establishes your works.
Here is the Truth ...
I do not frustrate the Grace of God. For if righteousness comes
by the law ... Then Christ is dead in vain.
8 For by Grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:
9 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:
2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that
whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
3 And these
things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father,
They were wrong !!!
But, God had a plan and His Will was done.
What is God's Grace Bible study danger ... 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 ...
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.
10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the
other a publican.
11 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.
12 I fast twice in the week, I give
tithes of all that I possess.
13 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.
14 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
The Christian Grace of God meaning has eluded Many Christians and
even some Churches because they choose to 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 that 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
Their view makes the Cross, of no effect.
God sacrificed His only Son to get His children into Heaven.
What is God's Grace Bible study trivia question: 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 ...
What is God's Grace Bible Study 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 with you. 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
The moral of this story is echoed through the entire Bible:
... 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 and you could be ... Being tested.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained Angels unawares.
What is God's Grace Bible Study Debate
True Christian Grace of God Meaning
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."
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 Christian Grace which
is free to absolutely everyone. Ponder on what you have learned in
this God's Grace Bible study and the actual Christian Grace of
God meaning which is this: 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 to them. 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.
1 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.
2 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
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 gift included in Christian Grace ... Christians have been given a gift to defend themselves in times of trial or tribulation. The gift is called the Holy Spirit.
He is here to help you face the trials and tribulations that come upon every soul.
He is here for you !!!
