Written in the Last Days!
Most people don’t even understand the power of Grace or the Spirit of Grace or the Doctrines of Grace, Ac.20:24 shows us another aspect of God’s Grace as well as verse 32: Let us look at 24 first of all; 24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
We see here that the Grace of God is that one knows the good news of Salvation, which is the death burial and the resurrection, and the almighty power and wisdom of God, that is part of the understanding of how faith and grace work in a unit; which never gets preached or taught upon. Without having a right mind no one can understand the scriptures in the right order in which only the Lord can lead you to in the correct context to bring a point of subject to context in the right way for us to understand unless the Holy Spirit, brings us to the point of surrender to Him, through grace by the power of submission to the Lord that is brought on by the love of God in us, this is that regeneration that was being to Titus from the Apostle Paul, in Titus chapter 3.
We must yield the Spirit of God’s Grace which is His mind, and as we know god is love according to 1 Jn.4:1-ffs and the greatest of all these three things we must possess as seen in 1 Cor. chapter 13 is the Love of God and love towards all mankind, for God became flesh and dwelt among us and not only that He became our brother too, so in fact when we love our brother we are in fact loving God in Jesus, who reconciled the whole world unto Himself by Jesus, 2 Cor.5:19-21!
So we see in all these verses God has had His hands all over us teaching us His ways by His Grace, which is the spoken words to us, as seen in Jn.6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. As well as Mt.4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Jesus is that bread of eternal life that came down from heaven as seen in Jn.6:63, if we would have known who Jesus was the gentiles would never have crucified Him, just to appease the Sanhedrin which was the high council of the Priests. We see this in 1 Cor.2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
Since the Grace of God is seen in his ever word given to us for our edification as seen in scriptures yet again, as we look to 2 Tm.3:14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
this shows us yet again the grace of God is in His words to us, for they are words given to us by His Holy Spirit, which is His mind, or will as well as His power, as we see in 1 Cor.1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. We see that the wisdom and the power of God was wrapped up in Jesus Christ, and we are complete in Him alone, as seen in Colossians chapter 2! But all men must be called and drawn to God the Father as seen in Jn.6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
We see here that God’s Grace has drawn all men to Him, and that is why they are drawn to Jesus Christ, and he alone will reveal Himself to you by His Grace, as seen in Mt.11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and He to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him! if we do not know who Jesus is by the Grace and the leading of God, through His given words to us, we too will still die in our sins, because we have not submitted to the simplicity that is in Jesus Christ who is both LORD and the CHRIST Ac.2:36 as well as LORD OF ALL, Ac.10:36 that has been shown to us in His given words to us that is His given Grace to us by His words to us, so that we can know Him as the I Am that was before Abraham, Jn.8:58! or you will still die in your sins if you do not know who Jesus is, Jn.8:24! You can not enter into the promised land of milk and honey, which is His rest that is seen in Mt.11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
The Grace of God is hidden in His words to us in His Holy Bible, which can only be deciphered by His Grace of the Holy Spirit leading us into all His Truths, which is His given words to us so we in fact can know His mind, nature, and will for all humanity, which is seen in 2 Pt.3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
We see here that this is the last will of God with humanity, He has let us know what to expect in the future with the judgment of the world, that is held in store for the judgment and the burial and purifications of the heavenlies by the purging of all those who would not have Him ruler over them in the love of God, starting with His own house first, with the fallen angels who were supposed to have served Him without respect of persons or spirits either. Only they who will bring glory to God will be with God for eternity! For this reason we were created! To bring glory and to serve the living God the Lord of All Jesus Christ, who has purchased us with His own blood, as seen in the given words to us in His Holy Bible, which leads me directly back to where I started in Acts chapter 20 and verse 32: 32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of His Grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. showing us that again the Grace of God is in His given words to us! as seen in Mt.4:4 and in Lk.4;4 as well, which is directly tied to Is.28:9-13, and it is by the Grace of God that He will lead you to all truths that are in His Holy Bible, and it is only by His Grace that you receive His repentance or have His forgiveness, and He accepts your works worthy of repentance, for your forgiveness, that was seen in Cornelius’ house as well in Ac.10:1-48, that was seen and given for evidences that Cornelius’ house had in fact received the baptism of the Holy Spirit that all they had received who were in the upperoom on the day of Pentecost and the birth of the church of the living God in Jesus Christ!
As seen in Ac.11:1-18! The confirmation of the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the gift of speaking in other tongued as He the Holy Spirit of God, which is God the Father, who conceived Himself or incarnated which means made in the flesh! As seen in Jn.1:1-18 in many Greek original manuscripts it says in verse 18 the begotten or incarnated God, who is in the bosom of the Father, which is God the Father which is Spirit seen in Jn.4:24, who dwells in Jesus as the Holy Spirit because we are called to be Holy as He is Holy, as seen in scriptures which reveals His nature and character to us from His given words to us which is His Grace to us! His Grace to us is tied directly to His will for us and His will for us is that none should be lost, but all come to repentance and be saved by His grace which is His words to us, when we comply in complete honesty with a pure heart, as we understand by hearing His words being taught to us and preached to us, because hearing and understanding cometh by speaking His words of Grace and Truth to us so that we come to know Him and what it is He will accept from us, as we conform to His likeness, that we had in the first state before Adam lost salvation for the whole human race! We must be regenerated into that which is Holy, Sanctified, Righteous, Consecrated, which is all the components of Godliness! We must be like Him if we are going to be His children, and being He is the way the truth and the life we too must lead, which is a life free of sin, we too must share in that quality as well, for He has given us that commandment as well, Jn.8:11 and Jn.5:14, or a worse thing will come upon you as well, for a true child of God keeps Himself free and touches not sin, 1 Jn.5:18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.19 And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. Therefore we have been called to come out from among the unclean generation and He would be our Father, Ac.2:40 as well as 2 Cor.6:14-18!
You see all scripture is tied directly to one another and is interconnected by one another all the way through the Bible so all righteousness could be fulfilled in the baptism of Jesus Christ by John the Baptist, for the righteousness of God is His given grace to us that was His mind, His heart, and His will for us that has been given to us by His own very words to us, that is the Spirit of Grace and the Doctrines of Grace which is revealed to us in all His words to us! If we do not accept them for our own and keep them dear and near to our won hearts for steady reference to the truth of how we are to live our lives we make up our own rules and ways which are not only foolishness with Him but also perilous, for Is.55:6 Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
The ways of mankind are just foolishness to our Great God, as seen in 1 Cor.1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness;24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
So we see that when we leave the word of God we leave God and his will and go our own way, which is that sin that will never be forgiven in this life time or the next or at any age to come as seen in Mt.12:31-32, because you would not submit to the only one who can give you eternal rest by His Grace, which is His Favour for you that you would not perish in the eternal Lake of Fire! Where the worm, that means you, that dieth not, and the fire is never quenched, because you are that fires fuel that is consumed by my God’s wrath, when you could have had His Favour or Grace!
