Why do Christians fail, and fail, to live a perfected discipleship?
Now, here is the thing..
Your RIGHTEOUS is completed. Its a GIFT. "the Gift of Righteousness"..."the Gift of Salvation"....... the born again are : "MADE RIGHTEOUS".
Not being made.....but "MADE righteous".
What is the #1 disconnect between the majority of believers, and God, that causes and maintains the "sinning and confessing" lifestyle .....that is really a continuing Discipleship failure. ???
What is it?
Its very simple, and this lack of knowledge causes this..... Hosea 4:6.
Hell existed before Adam was created, and it was created for the Devil and His angles and his spiritual family.
Now here is the understanding that you wont be receiving next Sunday in your church, or in the next 2000 Sundays..
Its this... Reader.....
Heaven is for the Child of God
And now for a little space grace hath been [shewed] from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a nail in his holy place, that our God may lighten our eyes, and give us a little reviving in our bondage. Ezra 9:8
The pithy line above was first coined in the 1539 Great...
If you have riches, how should you deal with them and what can you do?
The world has certain riches but there are another type of riches of the Kingdom of God.
There is a clashing between the ethical use of the riches of the world and the riches of God in Christ Jesus. Here are a...
Are those we permit by our motivation, words, deeds, and our lack of understanding of what God/Jesus means by what is written. Those from which we are delivered are by the grace of God/Jesus through our thanks for His grace for us on the cross.
How Amazing Will The Feeling Be To Just Stop And Say… Finally, We Are Here In Heaven… After All The Struggle We had To Endure On Earth... We Are Finally Here With Our Lord Jesus...
And to think my entrance to that wonderful place called heaven was all due to God's amazing grace... I don't know...
Grace re-defined - it is truly amazing
1 Tim 1:14 The grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus (no grace, faith or love apart from Jesus Christ).
John 1:14-16 The Word (Jesus Christ)...from (or out of) His fullness we have all ESVreceived...
This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most. Hebrews 4:15-16
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
SALVATION: GRACE: FAITH
Here are three of the key-words of the New Testament-’grace,’ ‘saved,’ ‘faith.’ Once these terms were strange and new; now they are old and threadbare. Once they...

Based off Romans 1 NIV
God, our creator,
Has made himself plain,
Through all his creation,
He revealed His plan.
All of His virtues
Were made clear to all.
Mankind, without excuse,
Now choosing to fall.
Godless and wicked
Face God’s holy wrath.
The Grace of God
1 Corinthians 1:4-9 NASB
I thank my God always concerning you for the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, that in everything you were enriched in Him, in all speech and all knowledge, even as the testimony concerning Christ was confirmed in you, so that you are...

You use and abuse,
And you tell tall tales.
You promise to change,
But to no avail.
When you’re asked to change,
Then you raise your claws.
You rage and refuse
To give truth applause.
Then, you seem to know
Of what you did wrong.
You cry and...
Does the subject of law and faith ever confuse you? I think it can be confusing for those of us who were born in the Messianic age, and not under the Old Covenant, as the Jews of old were. I think, too, that in this confusion a lot of false doctrines were born out of wrong ideas of what all this...
Hebrews 3:1-6 ESV
Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house. For Jesus has been counted worthy of more...
Justified by Faith
Romans 5:1-2 ESV
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
When we are born into...
Dead to Sin
Romans 6:1-4 NIV
What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer? Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were...
An Original Work / March 10, 2018
Based off Psalm 36
You speak words of love to me,
But your actions deny them.
Your eyes, full of adultery,
Testify against you.
Promises made, but not kept,
Words spoken, often in jest,
Hardhearted and prideful unrest,
Put your Lord to the test.
What is Grace?
Any Christian who has either read or heard Scripture for a year or two would be able to recognise many verses about Grace and certainly be comfortable with a level of doctrine regarding Grace and what it means to and for the Christian.
But, is what we usually hear...
