The grace of God has appeared and is visible. When God opens things up in the Spirit, it opens. There are many waves opened upon us that we do not know about because the things required to broadcast them are not available. Many times, for certain lights to come to us there has to be warfare because not everything we do count in the eternal purpose of God. The job of Abraham was done when Isaac came in. But God knows how and what will be done to make His purpose met.
I believe God wants us to be among the multitude that comes to God not just the remnants. The direction will be that all churches will come and teach the truth. The light has to shine so much that the gospel will be preached in every place. Your inability to experience the Holy Ghost does not mean He is not available; it is because you have not received the Holy Ghost. At some point in life, this was scarce but as it is now, the gift of the Holy Ghost is so easy to get. So, we should be aware that God’s work has to progress and become more accessible.
1 Peter 5:10
But the God of all grace, who has called us to his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that you have suffered a while, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.
All grace comes from God, is domicile and has its origin from God.
Galatians 4:23-31; 5:5; Romans 4:1-16
We do not just exist by chance; we are a product of the promise; not by any biological accident. By faith, Abel distinguished his sacrifice from that of Cain. The favour of God was directed towards Abel and not Cain. Cain did not bring the rotten things as we thought; it was the state of his heart that made the difference. There is also the issue of faith in the heart. It was not also Ishmael’s fault that he was disinherited; he had the right as a first born to the inheritance of his father; but God had an idea within him and this caused him to be disinherited and Isaac was given the inheritance. Also, Esau and Jacob were both born of Isaac but Jacob was the loved and Esau, the one hated. God does good always and all His ways are just. Ephraim and Manasseh are also two boys of Joseph, Jacobs’s son. The son at the right hand receives the double portion of the father’s blessing but God changed the order in the two boys when Jacob was to bless them, making the divine choice come to play above the natural order. Another story is that of the Prodigal Son who squandered his resources, mercy came to him and he decided to go back home. His Father ran to him, welcomed him and treated him as a son. He was initiated into Sonship along the line of grace even though he deserved a very good beating.
As the prophetic people looked into this year, we saw that timing in the scriptures were governed and administered by the moon and the stars. God numbered not by the days of the week. He numbered according to the number of the day. We also see that this year is going to be that of grace and rest, perfection and finality. God spoke a lot about grace and across the Christian sphere, there was a proclamation of grace. It is a signature in the Spirit.
Human beings like works, even though could be unwillingly. Religion creeps in into our belief system so much that it takes mercy to see how we depend largely on works. We think we need to do a lot or suffer in a way to enter but the saving of the soul is not easy, we need to keep hearing. We many times accuse God of not moving as we think He should to us. We accuse Him based on our being “a lamb, meek and light carriers” but this position does not bring us into grace, this is simply man’s position. That confidence is in the wrong place; approaching life and God from the things we have been taught or things we have seen in God whereas we should pray that our feet will be immersed and planted in grace.
Roman 12: 6-9
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teaches, on teaching;
Or he that exhorts, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; hold to that which is good.
The beginning of all things is in God and He has measured unto each of us grace in different measures. Every gift given to man came from the grace of God. Our sensibility and talents have been given by the Lord that we are wired according to these. At the beginning, when God was doing this fashioning, grace appeared; He called and made us with a measure of grace. At the beginning of time or existence, grace appeared to us.
2Timothy 1:9, Ephesians 4:7; 1:5
To foreknow means to know ahead of time and at this time, there was grace. A grace was given in the beginning and that is the beginning of our calling. The grace was given to us before the world began for us to possess.
Evil does not need a cause. Many wicked people just do evil without any cause and so, also, God is good without any cause. Many of us find it hard to see God as good but that image we carry within us of a wicked God should be taken away. The whole world was created out of His goodness. He is good. When He created, He was looking for goodness. The goodness of God is His signature. The battle between good and evil is brought to a climax in this season and that is when the goodness of God will be evidently evident; this is the manifestation of His grace. The serpent knew the seed of the woman would bruise its head, the plan was therefore to corrupt the bloodline so that all the seeds would be corrupted. God wants to express His goodness which is a manifestation of His grace.
What is being demonstrated is the power of God’s own sovereignty that is by His grace for no flesh will glory. As your hearts begin to pray, as you beseech His mercies, His manifestation will come to you. The grace that brings salvation has appeared unto you and this grace is the pillar of the life you have received. His grace has appeared. It is by His Grace that the nations will be commanded unto glory. The impartation from God will begin to come to you, grace is communicating to you. Holy Holy Holy is God the one who dispenses grace; you have being brought into His utmost power; you have being brought into His light and tremendous power. The working of favour inside His grace is working in you. You are coming into glory by the ministration of His grace.
The Lord is wearing out our pride, our religion and He is granting us more access into grace by the hearing of the word and as we hear, our loftiness, high mindedness and pride will be brought down. Amen!
