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 King James Version

There are so many things that men have said the Gospel is it can sometimes be confusing.  But  it’s always very easy when we stick with The Word of God Who is Jesus.  Jesus is the Gospel and is the ‘too good to be true news.”  He is Immanuel, God with Us.  At one time God was not with us and we were doomed, but that is no longer the case.  He is not only with us but He is FOR US.  Why the change?  JESUS!!!  Jesus made and makes all the difference.  Because of His finished work we have peace with God when we believe in His Son.  Romans 5 explains this very clearly.

Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Romans 5:1 New Living Translation

It’s all because of Jesus!!!  When you think about what He has done then you can say as one man of God said with true conviction that, “He(Jesus) is altogether lovely!!!”  He is altogether worthy and has made you worthy because of His Blood and sacrifice.  The Word of God says many things about Jesus but there is only two things that I have seen in The Word that it says He is full of : GRACE and TRUTH.

And The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of The Only Begotten of The Father, full of grace and truth.  Aramaic Bible in Plain English

We are not in a time of judgement.  Regardless of what man or woman of God you hear say that I’m telling you by The Word of God it is simply not true.  Being ignorant to this truth will cause your attitude towards unbelievers to be condemning and unmerciful and that is not GRACE or TRUTH.  Someone may think or say, “Yeah but look at all the sin going on!!!!”  How about not looking at all the sin and looking at all the GRACE!!!.  Look what Paul says HAPPENED where sin was abounding and increasing.

God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. Romans 5:20 New Living Translation

That says now in the New Testament which is the dispensation we are in,  WHERE sin abounded, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND!!!! Glory to God!!! That means GRACE is greater than sin.  That means people can’t sin more than God’s Grace Who is Christ Jesus can abound towards them in righteousness and peace(shalom) and joy in the Holy Ghost.  I am happy about that,  I am happy that people can’t out sin God’s GRACE.  I don’t want anyone to be lost and neither does Big Poppa.  Look at what God said even in the Old Testament about people dying in their sins.

As surely as I live, says the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people. I only want them to turn from their wicked ways so they can live. Turn! Turn from your wickedness, O people of Israel! Why should you die?  Ezekiel 33:11 New Living Translation

Poppa God, Our Father takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked.  He created man!! He did not create him to turn around and kill him and damn them to hell.  We must take the same attitude as our Father and as Jesus.  God is Love!!!  His GRACE who is Jesus is GREAT!!!  When we operate in the ONENESS that Jesus prayed that we would in John 17 powerful things happen.  Look at what happens when we do.

All the believers were united in heart and mind. And they felt that what they owned was not their own, so they shared everything they had Acts 4:32 NIV

Then guess what happened after that?

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 King James Version

How?  When they functioned in ONENESS and when they talked and witnessed about JESUS!!!!  About GRACE!!!  Not about sin!!  That scripture says they witnessed of the resurrection of JESUS!!!  Let’s talk about JESUS!  Teach people JESUS then Jesus will teach people.  Teach people GRACE then GRACE will teach the people by way of the Holy Spirit.  That’s God’s plan anyway.  I don’t care how great of a teacher any man or woman is they are not greater or better than The Holy Spirit and that is where most of your teaching should come from by way of THE WORD WHO IS JESUS!!!  Jesus set you up to be able to have a smorgasbord EVERYDAY with Him, not just when you go to church on Sunday.  I tell you what try eating one meal a week in the natural for a couple of months.   We may still see you but we won’t see much of you because you will be able to hoola hoop with a Cheerio.  You know it’s not “healthy” to eat one meal a week for your natural body, so why would you do that spiritually?  There is no condemnation so don’t be condemned however you should be encouraged to desire to be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIs Might.  That might is Jesus, Who is The Word.  Christ is made unto us the wisdom of God and the power of God.  Feast on the GRACE of GOD: JESUS!!!  He desires you to spend time with Him.  He loves you and has more than enough GRACE for you and your family and your co-workers and everyone else.  He so loved THE WORLD!!!  He’s got more than just GRACE.  He’s got GREAT GRACE for all of us.

All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!
