While attempting to weigh how this subject imparts on grace, I found myself comparing scriptures with scriptures (1cor. 2:13c) and the following was some of my findings:
1.    2Pet. 1:2 GRACE and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord.
-       We can deduce here that increasing in the revealed KNOWLEDGE OF GOD which can only take place as we increase in KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST is the key source of INCREASING IN GRACE. Prayers, fasting, giving etc can only help us while journeying here but isn’t a substitute in anyway to the learning process.
 2.    1Cor. 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
-       i.e. at this junction, the Corinthian church should have grown beyond the milk of the word that made them BELIEVERS, to a phase where they could relate with KNOWLEDGE – the meaty aspect of God’s word (Heb. 5:12-14) that should make them KNOWERS. The syllabus of knowledge have to do with the Lord’s secrets (1Cor. 2:6a)
 3.    1Cor 8:1 Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the GRACE of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia;
-       i.e. an aspect of Grace/Knowledge of God was received by the Macedonian church that enabled them cheerfully give in pain, despite their great trial of affliction and their deep poverty. This knowledge/grace was the source of their conviction that enabled them give beyond their power, as they were willing of themselves
 4.    Gal. 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the GRACE of Christ unto another gospel:
-       i.e. a spiritual distraction from a TRUE KNOWLEDGE by an INFERIOR KNOWELDGE. Both are fellowships. One in the Spirit and the other in the flesh
 5.    Gal. 2:9 And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the GRACE that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship.
-       i.e. the grace Apostle Paul made reference to here was knowledge of the secrets of Christ, which the Lord couldn’t give unto the disciples because they initially KNEW HIM IN THE FLESH, unlike Paul who began by KNOWING HIM IN THE SPIRIT (2Cor. 5:16)
6.    Gal. 5:4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from GRACE
-       i.e. the Galatian church slipped back to Judaism, an inferior knowledge rooted in the Law which placed emphasis on right conducts and focused on the Mosaic covenant
 7.    Gal. 6:18 Brethren, the GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.
-       i.e. Our recreated human Spirit has received and is a safe abode for the grace of our Lord Jesus, but our soul is yet to be exposed to the knowledge of God and is therefore yet to become a conducive abode for grace to abide. THE ONGOING PROCESS OF THE SALVATION OF THE SOUL (1PET. 1:9) IS MEANT TO MAKE IT AN ABODE
8.    Eph. 2:8 For by GRACE are ye SAVED through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
-       i.e. We embrace that knowledge through Faith. Many are unbelievers today because they are yet to respond to the spiritual faith-based principle and many believers remain carnal (Rom. 8:6-7) because their minds have not received new laws (Heb. 8:10/10:15) and their hearts have not yet been instructed in righteousness (2Tim. 3:16)
9.    Phil. 1:7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my GRACE.
-       i.e. Paul’s Soul had become ONE WHAT GOD REVEALED to him through several encounters, from Acts 9 to when he was encountered by God through the buffeting (2Cor. 12:7) he received from a terrible fallen spirit. That Knowledge had become HIS INHERITANCE IN CHRIST JESUS =Eph. 1:3=, HIS PERSONAL PROPERTY BEYOND TIME.
10. Acts 14:3 Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his GRACE, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
-       i.e. there is a class/order of words that conveys God’s secrets and communicates His Grace! It’s called UTTERANCE and as mighty as Apostle Paul was, he had to enjoin the saints to pray for him that utterance would be given to him – Eph. 6:19
We can therefore see that the beginning aspect of faith is what makes us bear an identity called BELIEVERS OF CHRIST. But there is the need for an experience with the Spirit of wisdom and revelation (Eph. 1:17-18) to bring us into KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST (i.e. knowledge of what we previously believed in), where we experientially encounter the GRACE OF GOD
2Tim. 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I KNOW whom I have BELIEVED
So the more NEW TESTAMENT ENLIGHTENMENT THAT WE RECEIVE (Eph. 1:17-18/Jn. 1:12a), the more grace we partake of and the more gracious we become. The more our investment of hearing and learning Christ =Eph. 4:20=, the more our grace dividend.
Having Grace is owing God’s knowledge (Jn. 17:3) and it is more than sufficient for us because Its More Than We Can Ask Or Think Of (Eph. 3:20)
Bless You!


Dearly Beloved,
It may interest you to know that Believing in God and Knowing God are two unique overlapping dimensions of Faith experiences.
We start the faith walk by BELIEVING IN GOD (i.e. believing by faith in what we know not) but should JOURNEY (1Tim. 2:4) to a fruitful place where we would KNOW WHAT WE ONLY INITIALLY BELIEVED IN, i.e. eternal life (Jn. 17:3)
2 Tim 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I KNOW (end of faith) whom I have BELIEVED (beginning of faith), and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
Jn. 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
We can therefore see that the first believing brought about the salvation of our human spirit which was dead in sins and trespasses according to Eph. 2:1. Most things we hear and can readily relate with in the first years if not decade(s) of Christian professing are based on the elementary syllabus of believing in God, and God starts with us all from there.
But a time comes when God would seek to wean us from such believing meals (like mothers do to a suckling baby) so we can be schooled in deeper aspect of spiritual meals that is meant to bring about salvation of our souls (1Pet. 1:9) and the ministrations that would cater for this are called the meat or strong meat of the word (Pls read 1Cor. 3:1-2/Heb. 5:12)
Isaiah 28:9 Whom shall he teach Knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand teachings (i.e. revelations)? Them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
1 Cor. 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 3:2 I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were
not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
So, Apostle Paul was clearly confirming in Eph. 1:17-18 that the divine personality that mid-wife’s the Process of being Weaned from the Milky Aspect of Faith where we start Believing In God is the Spirit of wisdom & revelation (Eph. 1:17-18). He is the Spirit of Truth whom Jesus confirmed in Jn. 16:13 would open up chapters knowledge of God to a believer.
We may therefore see that our heart Only Believed in an unseen salvation (life) that we had no knowledge of when we came to Christ (new birth). We started by BELIEVING BY FAITH, what we are meant to later KNOW BY GRACE and therefore be saved (Eph. 2:8), because it takes the opening/enlightening of the eyes our understanding to access divine knowledge (Eph. 1:18) and that takes place after we have qualitatively fulfilled the first two spiritual protocols of a preliminary FAITH and beginner LOVE stated in Eph. 1:15
Some Scriptural References:
Eph. 1:15 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith (milky form of faith) in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints
Eph. 1:17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the KNOWLEDGE of him: 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may KNOW what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints
Phil. 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ (meaty form of faith), the righteousness which is of God by faith:
1Tim. 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved (i.e. believing born again), and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (i.e. journey to know the Lord that they initially could only believe in).
(i.e. Apostle Peter started out by believing in God but later journeyed to a place where he acquired knowledge of what the being he previously only believed)
The question God is asking most believers and ministers like Paul was asking the Corinthian Church that had tarried for long with the milky aspect of faith is when would they be available for the weaning process (Isa. 28:9/1Cor. 3:1-2 ) needed for them to come into the aspect of spiritually revealed knowledge where he can only be unveiled?
Bless You

LOVE, The Commandment of The Beginning - Part 10

Beloved of God,
A wise man once described love as ‘The Mystery We Are And Serve”, so how blessed are we to have Love (God) gradually bring love home! Amidst an ever busy day, I pray we make out time to read the following transcribed msgs.
Graceful reading!

LOVE, The Commandment of The Beginning - Part 10

Scriptural reading: 1 Jn. 4:12-16

Vs 12: "No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us.

·         Immediately God’s love is made perfect in us, we arrive where God is. When God is dwelling in a man, the love of God has been perfected in such a person. In other words, God can only come into a man after love is complete (Jn. 17:21/23), after it has been made perfect.

Eph. 1:12: "That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ."

·         To the praise of His glory means the glory that brings praise to Him. You can't know glory without knowing praise. The glory of the Lord can be interpreted through His praise.

·         Jesus is the brightness (light) of God's glory. The bible says we should be to the praise of His glory. Thus, they can know the glory of God thru us- there's a state we will arrive in that they can know His glory is in us - that state is praise.

·         "Beloved" is someone who has come to love. The love of God is the background for praise. And the key to praise being finally seen in us is that we come into that glory of the beloved- to be holy and blameless before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4). This is purity that comes from Love - when it's not from the Father, it's not love.

Eph. 1:13 "In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise."

·         The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance and must not be joked with. He is the Spirit of promise, the Spirit of Truth. This Truth, which is our inheritance, must not be joked with. The reason the Lord is guiding me into all Truth is not just to get knowledge. Knowledge is only a doorway to receiving the rest of the inheritance.

·         Because I believed, I got sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise (Eph. 1:14). The baptism of the Spirit of God in a believer is evidenced with speaking in unknown tongues (Acts 19:1-6).

·         You need the Holy Spirit for the next level of knowing Christ. Without the Holy Ghost, you won't know Jesus and can’t be guided into all Truth (Jn. 16:13). God can guide you to people who have already been taught of the Holy Ghost, so that they can stir more hunger and thirst in us.

·         Hence, being born again and growing as a believer isn’t just about ‘knowing the bible’ but about being led by the Spirit (Rom. 8.14). When I wanted to KNOW THE LORD, He didn't lead me to the bible first, He led me to some people. One of people the Spirit led me to, later introduced me to some of late Kenneth E. Hagin’s tapes and I was so blessed. The Holy Ghost will lead you to the place of meekness where you would learn from others who have gone ahead of you. People who have not been guided through others enter into error.

·         God told me that he would teach the knowledge/faith of the Son but firstly, I had to go through the teachings of Kenneth Hagin. We must be guided, humbled and made meek in this path to being made perfect.

·         It takes some time to understand the bible. There are initiations in the Spirit that will lead you into eating the Word. The Lord will bring you under authority, those who are ‘professionals’ in the profession of rightly handling the word of righteousness. It takes time to go into the bible and rightly divide the word of Truth; first, you'll need to eat from men (be taught of men) before you can take and eat directly from the Bible.

·         The first thing the Holy Spirit instructed Apostle Paul after he was saved was to go to a particular disciple named Ananias, who would tell him what he would do (Acts 9:6). Jesus didn't need to go to Paul and say enter the water let me baptize you. His baptism or initiation was to listen to what Ananias had to say. In my own case, the water I needed to be baptized in was Hagin's teachings - waters of faith which I dwelt in for 4 years.

·         These times of watching and waiting (with spiritual oversight) are times we spend serving and being under authority. They bring instructions to you to that would serve as a covering over you.

·         When you're under them, heaven is watching you. It is called over-sight (1Pet. 5:2) and this comes over time.

·         Pastors over you are there to raise you up in the school of Truth. Under them, the Holy Ghost will certify you with authority. You should desire to be authorized by God through these spiritual overseers. If not, the Holy Ghost will not find you fit for authority. When I first got initiated into Kenneth Hagin teachings, my dream was to go to Rhema Bible College, but heaven only just allowed me go there just recently after I had eaten the word of righteousness in a good measure.

·         There's a mode in which the Holy Ghost moves us to graduate in the Spirit. It's OK to bless others with what you're hearing (@ campus fellowships, etc) BUT don't go into weighty books and share their mysteries/revelations. It can lead you into error. If you watch the pastors in this ministry for example, you'll notice that they times teach alongside a previous inspired revelations that come to us, playing safe and simplifying such teachings. They don't try to crack new revelations of theirs but share and build on that which has already been delivered to us. In this way, the Holy Ghost will move them up in the Spirit with authority. Also, only teach according to the proportion of faith that has come to you. (Rom. 12:3)

·         It is in the meat of the word that they know our hearts. At times, I can encourage some people to teach, but some will go to heavy mysteries. People would be safer under your care if you start from the tail rather than going to share deep thoughts in the book of revelations for example.

·         We should be grateful with the level of revelation we have. We don't gather for tomorrow but for today. Some study extensively just so they will shine more than others. But you, when you're gathering revelation, don't study to be better than your brother. Study for you to CHANGE within

·         Beyond the excitement of sharing revelation/God’s mysteries, we should go to the level of doing/changing. This is how the process goes: Hearing-Saying-Doing. It is good that you come together and exhort one another. We must prefer our brethren to ourselves. So, you can move from sharing to meditation to be doers of the word.

·         As much as it's wonderful that you come together to share revelations of truth with one another, focus on the doing - on coming to a point where you'll pray for the other brother to be better. This is walking in love. It is what apostle Paul did when he prayed the prayer in Ephesians 1:16-19.

·         It's because of the inheritance made reference to in Eph. 1:14 that Apostle Paul began to pray the prayers in Eph. 1 vs. 17

·         Anyone who refuses the baptism of the Holy Ghost (Acts 16:1-6) refuses the inheritance (1Pet. 1:4/Acts 20:32/26:18d/Eph. 1:14/18). You'll not be able to take major steps in the Spirit if you refuse the person of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost will make you supernatural and ready to take risks.

·         The Holy Ghost will help you locate the platform of grace, where you'll be less dependent on the natural platform. Many Christians can't risk things and can’t be led by God out of their conveniences and comfort zones.

·         THE BAPTISMS OF THE SPIRIT IS TO HELP YOU CEASE FROM RELIANCE ON YOUR NATURAL MIND. When you're too careful you'll be fearful (Phil. 4:6). You need wisdom to balance these things so that you don't go overboard. You need to pay the more earnest heed to the things you're being taught (Heb. 2:1), and watch these elders/spiritual overseers as they guide you

·         The sealing in the Spirit opens you up to the realms of the Spirit and equips you. Without the Holy Ghost, you will be completely natural. God can use anything to raise us up, including your job and the most difficult brethren to deal with. The realm of the Spirit is from faith to faith.

·         YOU NEED THE HOLY GHOST TO BRING YOU INTO THE WORLD OF THE FATHER AND THE SON. Nobody comes into this inheritance and remains natural. The eyes of our understanding must be enlightened for us to know this Hope of our inheritance (Eph. 1:18), which is Christ. Faith and Love walk hand in hand. Without strength (i.e. grace), we can't come into this inheritance.

Interjection by Tongues And Interpretation:

·         “I'm your father. I'm here tonight. I love you and I can talk to you so naturally. I care much about you. I'll lead you bit by bit. I'll bring you into deliverances. Allow me to lead you. As you listen, take heed. These are instructions. Take heed to them! It may look different than the past instructions I've given you, but take heed to them. By my instructions, I am keeping you save. I have sworn to save you to the uttermost" (Heb. 7:25)

Continuation of message:

·         When you come into the Faith of the Son, you move from Your Love (Eph. 1:15/Col. 1:4) into being rooted and grounded in God’s Love (Eph. 3:17/19/Col. 2:2). The faith of the Son is to practice the life of the Son, the very righteousness of the Son. It empowers us to truly trust the Son of God and carry out that which the Son says. It enables you submit totally to the allegiance of the Faith course. The Son lived out a Hope and birthed a new Hope for man, which we should live by. You need the Holy Spirit to bring you into the help of that hope.

·         When you live by faith of the Son, you are living by His love because you are responding by that faith to their demands. OUR REAL PROFESSION IS A LIFE OF FAITH IN THE SON. His love is deeper than His Faith. His love is the ultimate demand of the Father. Every true lover does not love His life (Rev. 12:11). When you come to love, you come to God (the Father).

·         When they say God dwells in you, that’s a mystery. It’s the mystery of the Son, Father and the Holy Ghost. THE INHERITANCE IS THE BEING OF THE TRINITY. Though they are one, they can't come to us at once, so we have to receive them bit by bit. The city of Jerusalem (the bridal company of overcomer’s) mentioned in the book of Revelation 21&22 illustrates believers who have the Father and the Son in them

·         The Holy Ghost is the water issuing out of the throne (Rev. 22:1). The Holy Ghost is the glory of the Father and the Son (Rev. 21:23). We need to receive God fully and it would take commandments from the Holy Ghost and our submission to the commandments.

Eph. 3:17 "That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love."

·         Being "rooted and grounded in love" is the point where your faith turns into love. The Faith of the Son is to enable the saints practice the life of God as exemplified by his Son. It enables you carry out the obedience of the Son in your heart so you easily submit to the allegiance of the Son.

·         The faith of the Son trains us in God’s Love and teaches us to TRUST IN HIS LIFE. Anyone who lives that life is exploring a NEW and LIVING HOPE. Through this faith, you'll let go of some things. So no man will ask much questions like “what are you actually living for”. God uses your earthly profession as a mask on your true I.D in Christ.

·         There is a demand that brings the Father fully and that demand is LOVE. If the Father hasn't dwelt, God hasn't dwelt fully.

·         The bible never talks about the mystery of the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is not shrouded to us in mysteries and was given at new birth, but because the Father and the Son are mysteries (Col. 2:2), and the holy ghost reveals them to us. To know Jesus, you need to understand mysteries (Rom. 16:25/Eph. 3:9)

LOVE, The Commandment of The Beginning - Part 9

Dearly beloved,

The Lord is expressly dealing with what has reduced man to flesh (Gen. 6:3) and adapted him to life without an enduring glory, i.e. what made Job to compare man with trees (Job 14:7-10)
From the beckoning of truth, we gradually see and can say that:
  • God via his Spirit is getting to the root of what has made purely spiritual things elusive to even zealous believers
  • The hour draws nigh when believers would agree with the Lord in meekness that various Knowledge without the Tree of Life is not of GOD, even though it has determined how man eats and lives.
  • The power that makes lawful things to captivate us is waning and Captivities of God’s Love are being raised
  • New resolves are being born that would cause some to delightfully love not their lives (i.e. their Isaac) unto death (Matt. 19:29/Heb. 11:17/Rev. 12:11) and thereby overcome the snare of fear. (Rom. 8:15/Heb. 2:15)

As we patiently read the following ‘Holiness Made Easy’ transcribed message, may our love abound yet more and more in all Knowledge and Judgment, Amen.

Graceful reading!


2 Jn. 1:1 The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth

  • Children of Truth here are not just ordinary children. They are not just children of the milk (1Cor. 3:1-2). These are those who have entered the childhood stage of the dominion of the Father (1Jn. 2:13e).
  • When the eyes of our heart are being enlightened, it is preparation for entrance. The reason for such enlightenment is to give us the spirit of discernment about Truth.
  • It's not every child of God that is able to enter or hold truth. After being born again, you must CONTINUE IN THE WORD (Jn. 8:31b) you have heard. Then you'll be a DISCIPLE and then qualify to KNOW TRUTH and be MADE FREE. A disciple is he who is waiting to receive Truth.
Eph. 1:3-4 " Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:"

  • Notice there is a colon (:) after verse 3 and before verse 4. This means verse 4 hinges on verse 3 i.e. without these blessings, you can't fulfill the calling to be holy and blameless.
  • God is calling us to a terrain where we can love Him blamelessly. Love has its discernment. There is a way you love that makes you see things in a particular way. When one is in love, there's a way he begins to judge things Phil.1:9. The love of God has ways of discerning things.
Jn 14:9 "Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?"
  • The Father loveth the Son with a high love in the Spirit and in His Son is contained all that makes Love what it is. The Father is confident about His Son's judgment and that is why Jesus said, "He that has seen Me has seen the Father". Jesus could discern this because He had the Father's love.
  • God wants us to enter into such love/discernment, which He shared with His Son. But before we can enter therein, he must first bless us with every spiritual blessings that is kept in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. The essence of spiritual blessing is for you to come into true holiness (Eph. 4:24). You'll be so separated that no one can blame you, not even before angels. Angels would reverend your holiness.
  • Those spiritual blessings are holy ingredients being transferred to us as "holiness" and when God gives you, you become blessed with them. And if these blessings are in "places" (Eph 1:3), you can't receive them all at once in one day. They are not physical, so those described as dogs (i.e. gentiles/unbelievers – Matt. 7:6/Phil. 3:2/Rev. 22:15) can't appreciate them. God's aim was to redeem the Israelis from being dogs. The curse Satan placed on man, made man exhibit a doggish nature (2Pet. 2:22).
  • Dogs are men who can never trust God for their lives: they can neither be still nor know that He is God nor can they stay in peace. They are always restless and without faith. Dogs can't wait for spiritual things. Dogs are fearful. They won’t understand the Lord's exhortation that says "for thy heavenly father knows that you have need of these things" (Mathew 6:32) because of their inability to wait.
  • From Eph. 1:2, we can deduce that to be graceless is to be without peace. Grace is what will sustain us till we receive the spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
  • When you have less grace you'll always toil. That's what it means to live the life of a gentile or dog, always toiling, and when the prosperity of fools comes their way, they give boast and give ‘testimonies’. Their testimonies should not be the inspiration for pursuit of our own blessings. No! We are children of GRACE!
  • What we should cry for is that grace and peace be multiplied (2Pet. 1:2/Gal. 1:3/Phil. 1:2/Col. 1:2). These are the ingredients that will interpret your destiny; hence you need not run helter-skelter about your future; you need to be at peace and stay in grace. You need to keep HEARING, for these things you're hearing are the spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus that will separate and make you holy/blameless.
1 Pet. 2:10 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy
  • What makes us stop being dogs is the day we were born again. Anyone that is graceless/outside peace is a dog. For by grace were you saved" (Eph. 2:5/8). The core of your life is Grace, not your Sweat. The day you were born again, God dug a foundation of grace in you. You were once without God in this world, but now have been brought closer because of mercy and grace (Eph2:12/13).
  • You need grace from these two beings, the Father and the Lamb, Jesus Christ. "Blessed be God"- He's blessed; that's why He can give blessings. He is a blessed person because He is gracious and plenteous in mercy. He is Grace personified that's why He commanded blessings on Israel through His Face:
  • We see Grace and Peace in Num. 6:23-26! How do you bless spiritual Israeli/God’s people? With the blessings of His Face, with Grace and Peace! What has made the triune God blessed is Grace! God has nothing but Grace. When the heavenly beings cry out in worship, "Holy, Holy", it's a response to the energy of Grace that beams out of the nature of his holiness. His holy nature beats according the Law of Grace. That's why He's at peace and called the Rock. Grace is traceable to Peace while Holiness is traceable to Grace and Peace.
  • What is peace? It is a settled Grace. It is grace in another manner/behavior. When grace has reached another dimension, it becomes peace.
Eph. 2:4 "God who is rich in mercy"- if there's no mercy, there won't be permission to know Grace.
  • God has chosen you to be separated, to be holy and change dealings. He has to remove you from the pestilence that walks in darkness and the destruction that wasteth at noonday (Psalm 91:6). It's not easy to desist from darkness and cease from sin. You will need Grace and Peace to move from where sin has kept you.
  • Sin in many places goes beyond fornication/works of the flesh and encompasses an alignment of life where we walk according to the confines of this world/darkness
  • New Birth is a grace that makes you a candidate for much more grace. You can't walk in that grace except the newness comes.
  • Blessing people is the right of a priest. True priests are blessed beings. To be a priest, you must be holy. Moving into holiness is moving into Rest. A priest is one who has found entrance into a life higher than the natural - a life of Grace.
  • Because you're a priest, you're resting and things are happening because grace is with you. Grace is at work, so you can rest.
  • When God has lifted your head, He has lifted your understanding and hence you'll not serve creatures.
  • A holy man is a delivered man. This deliverance is freedom from worldliness; and to be delivered from worldliness is to be set apart, to be made holy. In this state, you have the ability to serve God wholeheartedly in faith.
Eph. 1:6 "To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the beloved."
  • Glory means Sonship. Without the spiritual blessings mentioned in verse Eph. 1:3, we can't come into the glory in verse 6 above. As earlier said, these blessings are face blessings, which are Grace and Peace.
Eph. 1:7: "In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace"
  • Your sins have been forgiven you because of Grace, but stains are still there. Total, complete remission of sins can't occur until you're made wise
  • The spirit of wisdom in Eph. 1:17-18 is to download the remission of our sins. The reason we sin and walk in darkness is because we are blind and lack wisdom and spiritual understanding. The reason we would feel comfortable and relaxed in a demonic atmosphere is because our eyes are blind.
  • The strength of sin is the law; knowledge is strength. You need knowledge (strength) to break from the strength of sin. It is knowledge versus knowledge. When we Know Him and His ways, we will change in Deed and Truth. The least of those who have received knowledge and downloaded the forgiveness (remission) of sin are higher than John the Baptist.
  • Sin is responsible for a slow unholy walk. These sins mentioned in Eph 1:7 are many. They consist of all transgressions and offenses responsible for lack of progress in the Spirit. When you've been purified through KNOWLEDGE, these sins will leave.
Lk. 1:77 To give KNOWLEDGE of salvation unto his people by the REMISSION of their sins
  • This message you're hearing is holiness made easy. Not a few praying and shouting is carried out with our human strength. To make you holy is to totally lose interest in loving this world and its lusts that pass away. It's not by shouting. You have to use holiness weapons, which are God’s weapon’s (Eph. 6:11).
