In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. George Orwell.


Grace 

Grace, through faith:

Grace: a metaphor denoting Christ and his gift to us: baptism for the remission of sin, through a doctrine to follow.

Faith:  to believe that all Jesus taught was the truth, and so believing that if we follow what he taught we shall receive a better life on earth and everlasting life in heaven.  Believing the whole Gospel:  The New Testament.

EPH 2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
EPH 2: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

So as we read, not by any of our own works, but by the grace of the forgiveness received from Christ, through baptism.    If you can’t understand metaphors, you’ve got a serious problem and you must start to educate your self in reading and understanding metaphors.

In the online bible, search for the word: ‘grace’, and examine the context of its use.  You will see that this Metaphor refers to Jesus.

Metaphors used:
MAT 18: 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
PE1 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
Here we read again that ‘Grace’ ‘Word of God’ ‘Incorruptible Seed’ are all used as Metaphor to denote Christ and his gift to us: baptism for the remission of sin.

Metaphors used:
JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
JOH 3: 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Born again of water and the spirit means: you being born again, not in the flesh but in the spirit. So, not of the flesh, but of the spirit. It does not refer to the Holy Ghost, which we receive through praying for it, for born again we are through water: as Jesus said. But, as we read, we receive the Holy Ghost through prayer after our baptism. Some may believe that receiving the Holy Ghost after our baptism is another form of ‘Born Again’, referring to born again of the spirit: but this is not so.  The gift of the Holy Ghost is no more than what it’s referred to be in the book of Acts: a gift from Christ to the Born Again Christian: the baptized person.

Search the online bible for the word: Grace, and examine what is meant with this word.

Anyone who does not believe this is NOT a Christian and can’t become a Christian before they believe this truth; for the same is FAITH.

Protestant & Catholic    Old Testament     Ordination    Speaking-in-Tongues

...And The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It
Through the ages, Catholics and other Nicolaitans defied the above quotation by Jesus, 
oppressing and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more.
But they have not and shall not prevail against
'His Church'.
