Grace To The Humble
Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud,But gives grace to the humble.“ (1 Peter 5:5 NKJV)
Grace is still very much available. God sits on the throne of grace waiting to shower us with grace. Our success as Christians depends on the level of the grace we are enjoying. Jesus was filled with grace and Mary was full of grace. Paul was also blessed with extraordinary grace.
The only way to be filled with grace is by humility, desire and prayer. We need to realise that we need grace day by day until we get to a place of all grace. When we get to the place of all grace, great grace will come upon us by the power of the Holy Spirit and we will be crowned with all ability to fulfil the word of God and God’s plan for our lives.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.1 Peter 5:10
And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. Acts 4:33
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Hebrews 4:16
And so with deep affection they will pray for you because of the extraordinary grace God has shown you. 2 Corinthians 9:14 Good News Translation
And they will pray for you with deep affection because of the overflowing grace God has given to you. 2 Corinthians 9:14 New Living Translation
We can only receive great and abundant grace by diligence and asking. Jesus said we must ask in order to receive. If we do not ask we will not receive. We must never assume that we will just receive things from the throne of God without effort and prayer. The lazy lifestyle of receiving things without effort is for pagans not Christians.
Pagans depend on luck and we depend on grace. What they call luck is actually secret human blood. Blessings come after forgiveness and it is only human blood that purifies and achieves forgiveness that is why Jesus had to become human to set us free with His blood. Human blood removes temporal punishments but cannot remove eternal punishment in hell. The blood of Jesus removes both the temporal and eternal punishments for sin.
The foundation of every pagan religion is “the secret” of human blood cloaked, shrouded, hidden and dressed up in the cover of idolatry, alters, images, physical objects and incantations. The foundation of true Christianity is the blood of Jesus.
In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. Hebrews 9:22
Pagans including orthodox “christian” pagans have priests who constantly offer human blood on their behalf so they can have good things even when they don’t pray or honour God. That is why they are so arrogant and utter blasphemies against God – I know because I was sacrificed in a orthodox “Christian” pagan religion. The Lord Himself permitted me to learn their deep secrets. I was able to pass through the fire in their alters and come out alive because “an Evangelist cannot be sacrificed” and “the gifts and callings of God are irrevocable.”
The Lord spoke to me and said, ” no one has ever been able to come out of the fire of that alter alive to tell their story.” The intensity and ferocity of the fire of that alter is so fierce and destructive that I cannot even begin to explain it – let it be a story for another day. All I can say is that I was ravaged beyond description but my experience led me into a place of deep intimacy with the Lord.
He has also consoled me beyond words. I will never trade the intimacy and fellowship I have with Him for anything in the world – He is my happiness, comfort, consolation and joy. In the past when I complained bitterly about the battery as I said, “Lord, I am so battered, so battered.” He replied me and promised, “I will console you.” The truth is that Christians should depend on grace. and never envy those who do not know God but are successful. It is wiser to know the foundation of people and things you admire – all that glitters is not gold.
Brethren, Christianity is not for the lazy and idle. It is for the fervent and zealous who burn with fire for the Lord. We must keep climbing the Holy Mountain of grace without tiredness and lukewarmness. When we get to the top of that Holy Mountain of all grace, life will become very joyful and exciting because of the Holy Ghost upon us with the fullness of His grace.
May we persistently seek all grace with perseverance and humility until we are at the top of the Holy Mountain where glory rules.
