WHAT IS DIVINE GRACE REALLY 5-28-22 VIDEO BEAUTY OF GRACE 2 #2
Grace has been imparted to us by the Holy Spirit. Grace is given to show us how to endure trials, stress, how to resist temptation and be strengthened in hard times. The grace of God remains constant in us no matter what we feel.
1 COR 1:7 In receiving the revelation of Jesus Christ as the principal influence in your life (his Lordship), you prove that you lack nothing and that his grace gifts fully compliment you.
8 He establishes you from start to finish; to stand vindicated in your identity in the light of day as evidenced in the Lord Jesus Christ. MIRROR
2 COR 6:4 In every circumstance we commend ourselves to be jointly positioned as deacons of God; we co-exhibit incarnate grace, regardless of the degree of the contradictions that we might be facing. We remain constant in a fortress of patience, in situations of extreme pressure; even at times where it seems like we have our arms locked behind our backs and we feel squeezed into claustrophobic spaces.

Zech 4:7 For who are you, O great mountain [of human obstacles]? Before Zerubbabel [who with Joshua had led the return of the exiles from Babylon and was undertaking the rebuilding of the temple, before him] you shall become a plain [a mere molehill]! And he shall bring forth the finishing gable stone [of the new temple] with loud shoutings of the people, crying, Grace, grace to it! AMP
Ps 84:11 For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. AMP
Psalms 84:11 For the Lord God is brighter than the brilliance of a sunrise! Wrapping himself around me like a shield, he is so generous with his gifts of grace and glory. Those who walk along his paths with integrity will never lack one thing they need, for he provides it all! TPT
Ps 92:14 [Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love, and contentment]. AMP
John 1:14 And so the Living Expression became a man and lived among us!
We gazed upon his glory, the glory of the One and Only who came from the Father overflowing with tender mercy and truth!
15John announced the truth about him when he taught the people, He's the One! He's the One I've been telling you would come after me, even though he ranks far above me, because he existed before I was even born.
16And from the overflow of his fullness we received grace heaped upon more grace!
17Moses gave us the Law, but Jesus, the Anointed One, unveils truth wrapped in tender mercy. TPT
JOHN 1:14 Suddenly the invisible, eternal Word takes on visible form - the Incarnation, on display in a flesh and blood Person, as in a mirror! In him, and now confirmed in us! The most accurate tangible exhibit of Gods eternal thought finds expression in human life! The Word became a human being; we are his address; he resides in us! He captivates our gaze! The glory we see there is not a religious replica; he is the authentic begotten Son. The glory (that we lost in Adam) returns in fullness!
15 John the Baptist raised his voice to announce emphatically that Jesus was what his ministry and prophetic message were all about. He declared that Jesus, though younger than him, since he witnessed his birth, ranks above him in prominence and in his Messianic mission - because in his I-am-ness, he always was pre-eminent.
16 He is the source of our completeness. Everyone may now realize their own completeness as evidenced in him. This is grace mirrored in grace!
17 The law was given through Moses; grace and truth have their genesis in Jesus Christ. Against the stark backdrop of the law, with Moses representing the condemned state of mankind, Jesus Christ unveils grace and truth! MIRROR
Acts 15:11 But we believe that we are saved through the grace (the undeserved favor and mercy) of the Lord Jesus, just as they [are]. AMP
Acts 15:11 Don't you believe that we are introduced to eternal life through the grace of our Lord Jesusthe same grace that has brought these people new life? TPT
Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me; neither do I esteem my life dear to myself, if only I may finish my course with joy and the ministry which I have obtained from [which was entrusted to me by] the Lord Jesus, faithfully to attest to the good news (Gospel) of God's grace (His unmerited favor, spiritual blessing, and mercy). AMP
Acts 20:24 But whether I live or die is not important, for I don't esteem my life as indispensable. It's more important for me to fulfill my destiny and to finish the ministry my Lord Jesus has assigned to me, which is to faithfully preach the wonderful news of God's grace. TPT
Acts 20:32 And so now, I entrust you into God's hands and the message of his grace, which is all that you need to become strong. All of God's blessings are imparted through the message of his grace, which he provides as the spiritual inheritance given to all of his holy ones.
33I haven't been after your money or any of your possessions. TPT
ROM 5: 15 The only similarity in the comparison between the crash-landing and the gift, is that both Adam and Christ represent the masses. However, the grace gift lavished upon mankind in the one man Jesus Christ supersedes the effect of Adams failure by far and is beyond comparison in significance to the idea of death and separation.
16 The principle of the gift speaks a different language and brings a radically different equation to the table. Whereas a single sin resulted in a judgment that concluded in condemnation; grace translates countless deviations into acquittal and innocence.
17 Death no longer has the final say. Life rules! If the effect of one mans crash-landing engaged mankind in a death-dominated lifestyle how much more advantaged is the very same mankind now that they are the recipients of the boundless reservoirs of grace, empowering them to enjoy the dominion of life through the gift of righteousness because of that one man, Jesus Christ. Grace is out of all proportion in superiority to the transgression. MIRROR
ROM 5:20 The presence of the law made no difference, instead it merely highlighted the offence; but where sin increased, grace superseded it.
21 Death provided sin its platform and power to reign from; now grace has taken over sovereignty through righteousness to introduce unthreatened life under the Lordship of Jesus Christ over us. MIRROR
ROM 6:1 It is not possible to interpret grace as a cheap excuse to continue in sin. It sounds to some that we are saying, Lets carry on sinning then so that grace may abound.
2 How ridiculous is that! How can we be dead and alive to sin at the same time? MIRROR
RO 6:14 Sin was your master while the law was your measure; now grace rules.
15 Being under grace and not under the law most certainly does not mean that you now have a license to sin.
16 As much as you once gave permission to sin to trap you in its spiral of spiritual death and enslave you to its dictates, the obedience that faith ignites now, introduces a new rule, rightness with God; to this we willingly yield ourselves.
17 The content of teaching that your heart embraced has set a new standard to become the pattern of your life; the grace of God ended sins dominance. MIRROR
ROM 11:6 Grace cannot suggest debt or obligation at the same time. The word grace can only mean what it says. The same argument goes for mankinds good works; if salvation or any advantage for that matter is to be obtained according to prescribed regulations of conduct, then thats it. No amount of grace can change the rules! Grace means grace and work means work.
7 The very thing Israel sought to obtain through their diligent labor they failed to get; yet those who embraced grace as Gods original intent hit the bulls eye every time, leaving the rest groping around in the dark like blindfolded archers. MIRROR
2 COR 8:9 You are acquainted with what the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ communicates: He exchanged his riches for our poverty; the extremities of his identifying with our poverty became the reference to our wealth. Everything he has is ours. MIRROR
2 COR 9:8 It is impossible to exaggerate the dimensions and detail of the grace of God! Plunge into the extravagance of grace where he exhibits the extreme dynamics of his bountiful dealing with us! We are already advantaged far beyond any calculation of personal merit to be completely self sufficient at all times in every possible situation that we might face! The overflow thereof amply supplies the needs of others in many creative ways to do good! MIRROR
1 Corinthians 15:10 But God's amazing grace has made me who I am! And his grace to me was not fruitless. In fact, I worked harder than all the rest, yet not in my own strength but God's, for his empowering grace is poured out upon me.
11So this is what we all have taught you, and whether it was through me or someone else, you have now believed the gospel. TPT
1 COR 15:10 While my own doing completely disqualified me; his doing now defines me. I am what I am by the grace of God. I am because he is! His grace was not wasted on me; instead I am inspired to labor beyond the point of exhaustion, more than anything I ever did under the law of performance; whatever it is that I accomplish now has grace written all over it. I take no credit for it.
11 Whether you came to faith through my preaching or someone elses is not important. MIRROR
2 COR 8:1 Allow me to encourage you with the striking testimony of the grace of God evidenced in the churches of Macedonia!
2 Their mental mettle was tested to the extreme; they found themselves squeezed into a very narrow space. Yet, in the depth of their poverty, their ecstatic joy led them into extravagant generosity! They had discovered the conclusion of grace: no degree of poverty can separate us from our seamless oneness with one another. Grace translates within us a wealth of liberality.MIRROR
EPH 2:5 This is how grace rescued us: while we were yet in that state of deadness and indifference in our deviations, we were co-quickened together with Christ! We had nothing to do with it. Grace freed us, once and for all from the lies that we believed about ourselves under the performance-driven system, and now defines our authentic identity! MIRROR
Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead and doomed in our many sins, he united us into the very life of Christ and saved us by his wonderful grace! TPT
2 TIM 1:9 He rescued the integrity of our original design and revealed that we have always been his own from the beginning, even before time was. This has nothing to do with anything we did to qualify or disqualify ourselves. We are not talking religious good works or karma here. Jesus unveils grace to be the eternal intent of God! Grace celebrates our pre-creation innocence and now declares our redeemed union with God in Christ Jesus. MIRROR
HEB 4:16 For this reason we can approach the authoritative throne of grace with bold utterance. We are welcome there in his embrace, and are reinforced with immediate effect in times of trouble. MIRROR
Hebrews 12:15 Watch over each other to make sure that no one misses the revelation of God's grace. And make sure no one lives with a root of bitterness sprouting within them which will only cause trouble and poison the hearts of many.
16Be careful that no one among you lives in immorality, becoming careless about God's blessings, like Esau who traded away his rights as the firstborn for a simple meal. TPT
James 4:6 But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it). AMP
2 Peter 3:18 But continue to grow and increase in God's grace and intimacy with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May he receive all the glory both now and until the day eternity begins. Amen! TPT
