The age of Grace
The weakness of God is stronger than man. Underestimating his kindness for weakness we undeservingly fall in grace. Hearing His melody we write our own words on this last voyage from the belly of hell. What we would consider wisdom or foolishness is confounding to Him who said, hell is a place already prepared as our place in heaven is under construction. Casting our crowns at His feet we shine like stars. Individually called to a just reward, stars are born and stars will die. We stroll their corridors in search of life, but like vagabonds we stumble in search of salvation. Some wretched and lost without hope while others believe and hope for the promise of God. He alone knows our hearts, plucked from the fire in the age of grace. Amazing grace how sweet the sound that save a soul like mine.
By our religions we stake our claim for thy kingdom come, but heaven’s chosen are among the nations. Many are called but few are chosen to be conformed to the image of His Son. To rule as kings and priest unto our God.
The sacrificial blood cries from the ground by reflections of the cross, and for those who plundered it judgement is waiting. Some days are good and some bad, making us vulnerable to the powers that be. But time is what we make of it. Confused at best, we walk the path to our ancestors. They can’t come to us but we will go to them. Who in their right mind would dare to believe the glory of a man, except by faith in the Son of Man. There is no other creature in all the world that is so privileged to be born again unto God as we understand Him to be. Fully confident in our belief that satisfies our worship. Still, eyes have not seen or ears heard what God has prepared for us. Be it Heaven or Hell, ignorance despises The Father and Son. Engage as servants to a prodigal’s return, where forgiveness and mercy rules the age of grace.
Casting lots for a sacred garment, the soldiers mock the cursed tree. Penning flocks of ninety and nine, for the one who is lost beneath the tree. Casting stones we assemble ourselves as the heathen rage and imagine vain things against the liberty in Christ.
Condemned by conscience we kiss our own lips. Inadvertently we profess, “Lord is it you or is there another more relevant?” The spirit searches the things of the spirit by way of our sacrifice. For it is even better to lose a body part, than to die never being known of the kingdom of heaven. Better to die never knowing Christ, than to die rejecting the cross. Because if the things we preach were known by our fathers, they would worship Him for the blind who sees and the deaf who hears, for the lame who walks, and for broken hearts now mended. Here and now in the age of grace we perfect our worship in the name of Jesus.
A picture paints a thousand words by the work of God’ hands. It’s the little things in life we overlook that are impressionable to Him who made all things.
But For The Grace Of God Goes I
John Bradley 1510-1555. John Bradley is said to have coined this phrase, “But for the grace of God Goes I”. If history is true, he compared himself to others who are enslaved by sin.
Brother John was burned at the stake for crimes against Queen Mary The First otherwise known as ‘Bloody Mary’ whose successor was Queen Elizabeth The First. They were all fighting for the power. The god of this world is a position reserved for liars, thieves and murderers.
Jesus said at His own trial, the only power Herod had over Him is that which was allocated to him by God. Having mercy on whosoever He will.
Jesus answered, “Thou couldest have no power at all against Me, unless it were given thee from above. Therefore he that delivered Me unto thee hath the greater sin.”
Necessary was it, for Him to die for the sins of the world in Subjection to the Law of God and man. His gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Fighting against spirit and principalities in wicked and high places. But for the grace of God no flesh is spared. The God in us all, is greater than the god of this world, establishing among us the gospel and the power of salvation.
Satan himself wants the worship of a man. Creating for himself the antichrist whose spirit is already in the world.
Imagine a place so damned, hot, and lonely. Void to the colors of love, full of darkness and hate. Where demons rule in torment at the sight of Christ having nothing to do with Jesus, Son of the living God.
“For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality, and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.” Till this day we can still hear people say,
But For The Grace Of God Goes I.
Believers are not afraid to engage the World because Jesus has overcome the World.
We are steadfast and aiming from the cross.
Judging not, lest we be judged.
Not by the color of skin,
Or even the content of a character,
But by every word that comes from the mouth of God.
Knowing that as believers The Church is justified in God through Jesus..
All the works of man is like a germ infested rag on a clean table.
But when we abide under the shadow of the Almighty,
Subjected to Him who controls time and all the host of heaven, we are strong.
When we rejoice in the Lord, our strength is renewed.
When we are forgiven for many sins,
we have more reasons to love God, people and even ourselves.
God The Father doesn’t recognize any fault that is forgiven in the works of Jesus, and the work of His hands.
‘But for the grace of God goes I.’
