JUSTIFIED BY FAITH

We are not justified by law keeping. Jesus according to scriptures nailed the Law to the cross and take it out of the way. This is what is meant by Christ fulfilling all the law of God. Jesus kept the law and on the cross nailed the curse which came through it on his body on the cross. HE WHO KNEW NO SIN BECAME SIN FOR US THAT WE MIGHT BE MADE THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM. JESUS fulfilled the Law and the Prophets.

“For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace.”Romans 6:14

“But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe….”Romans 3:21-22:

No one is good enough , no one can keep God’s laws perfectly. We cannot earn favour with with God based on our ability to keep the law. But because the Father loved his elect he is willing to give salvation to those who receive him by FAITH.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, that no one should boast.”Ephesians 2:8

Faith is more than just intellectual belief. The demons believe, but they don’t have saving faith. Faith comes by hearing the word of God and being born of the word of God by the power of the Holy Spirit. Faith is not an act of the will but an act of divine intervention. “For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, ‘Abba! Father!’” Romans 8:15

You cannot be both under the law and under grace. Paul writes that the law is a schoolmaster and that before faith came he was kept under a schoolmaster. (the law).

Gal 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.

Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

So BEFORE FAITH CAME he was under the law (schoolmaster). Therefore, before faith came he was not under grace. But after faith came he was no longer under the law, since he was under grace.

Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith;

“Ye are not under the law” (Rom 6:14)
“Ye are not under the law” (Rom 6:14)
“Ye are not under the law” (Rom 6:14)
“Ye are not under the law” (Rom 6:14)
“Ye are not under the law” (Rom 6:14)
“Ye are not under the law” (Rom 6:14)

Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.

The law cannot work in us, BECAUSE we are justified by FAITH. And after faith is come, it is not our works or the works of the law, it is Christ who works in us, not the law.

“We are his workmanship created in Christ Jesus”(Eph 2:10)

“He worketh in me mightily”(Col 1:29).

The law only points out that we have sinned. The law condemns us, it beats us, and tells us “You need Christ’s salvation ” when we are breaking it.

Jesus Christ has redeemed his sheep from the law’s curse and now rather than being justified by keeping the law (which no one can do perfectly anyway) Christians are filled with the Holy Spirit who causes us to walk in step with the Spirit who keeps us from fulfilling the lusts of the flesh and who seals us until the end. We are crucified with Christ so that it is no longer “I” that lives but Christ who lives in us to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

Ministering Evangelism through music (vocals and guitar) Administration; started church support groups, started various different outreaches over the years, Internet ministry. My ministry gifts are Prophetic Evangelism and Teaching (apologetics and end times revelation in particular). My motivational gifts are Intercession, prophecy, administration. I am a bond servant of Jesus Christ and am called by him to preach the gospel of grace through faith in Jesus Christ apart from the deeds of the law. My Statement of Faith I believe that Jesus is God's son and is himself God, the third person of the Godhead, (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) I believe the bible says YOU MUST be born again by the Holy Spirit to enter into the kingdom of God. I believe Jesus died for the sins of all that have been called out of darkness into his glorious light. Heaven is for the redeemed and hell is for reprobates. The death of Jesus Christ is the substitutionary atonement. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.” Jesus sent the holy Spirit to comfort, teach, build up, edify, consecrate, and seal God’s people until his return. Jesus will return to the earth to rule and reign for 1000 years on the earth. I believe we are in the end times and anti christ will soon be revealed. I also believe that we are living in the last days of the great apostasy and falling away from the truth of God's word but God has a remnant,( his elect, chosen before the foundation of the world,) that have not bowed the knee to Baal. These sheep will soon face great persecution that God will allow to take place before the return of Christ. This persecution which will be worldwide will be what separates the true Christian from the false apostate. Those who love not their lives to the end will be shown to be the true church of Jesus Christ but the compromisers of the integrity of God’s word, who choose the spirit of error, worldly doctrines of men, the works of the flesh and the works of the law will be shown to be apostates like Judas and will die in their sins. No one can come to Jesus unless the Father gives him the ability to do so. No one will seek after Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father according to scripture but all whom God calls by his Holy Spirit will come to Jesus and be saved from their sins and be given eternal life for he who has promised is faithful to perfom his promise. The Lord is calling his church to come out of Babylon : Come out of false new age teaching, Come out of legalistic adherance to OT laws to save you, Come out of false signs and wonders that have no scriptural basis, Come out of witchcraft and the doctrines of demons, Come out of humanism and the promotion of man by self help principles and RETURN TO THE PURE UNADULTERATED WORD OF GOD ! “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. Revelation 18:4 Isaiah 55:6-7 Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: 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.
