David Wilkerson: True Grace — “According to Paul, we are not walking in grace until we have broken from worldly corruptions. Unless we are endeavoring through the power of the Holy Spirit to lead godly and righteous lives, looking for the Lord’s coming in our every waking moment, we do not know God’s grace.”

TRUE GRACE
by David Wilkerson | April 11, 2012

Let me give you the heart of the true grace message: It is not a permissive gospel but one that teaches holiness!

“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2:11-13).

According to Paul, we are not walking in grace until we have broken from worldly corruptions. Unless we are endeavoring through the power of the Holy Spirit to lead godly and righteous lives, looking for the Lord’s coming in our every waking moment, we do not know God’s grace.

Many Christians want forgiveness, but that is all. They do not want to be delivered from this present world, because they love it. They are attached to their sins, not wanting to give up the pleasures of this earth. So they cling to a doctrine [‘eternal security’ or ‘once saved, always saved’ (OSAS) – editor] that says, “I can live as I please — as long as I say that I believe.”

They do not want to hear about obedience, repentance, self- denial, picking up their cross, taking on the yoke or burden of Christ. They simply want to be excused on Judgment Day — to have all their iniquities overlooked. They expect Jesus to open up the pearly gates, put His arms around them, and lead them down a golden street to their reserved mansion, even though they have never broken from the spirit of this world!

Paul writes, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2). We are to break from this world completely and be conformed to Christ alone!

Jesus justifies us through faith for a purpose: It is to embolden and empower us to resist the devil and overcome the world.

[Jesus Christ] gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father” (Galatians 1:4).

The Call To HOLINESS / Believe unto Holiness without which no man shall see God

by Gary Gray

Jesus Christ, the one who is God in the flesh, Shed His Blood on the cross that we would be made clean, through: belief in Him as Lord and Savior, His death and resurrection, His ascension and imminent return, even by His atonement; His blood having made us clean, has thereby made us able to receive in us the presence of the Holy Spirit and by this, having been born again of God, we have been equipped with the ability to cleanse ourselves of all wickedness through the Power of The Holy Spirit; for those who believe and receive the light that the world rejected, He has given power to become the sons of God.

Therefore since God has required that we be Holy even as He is Holy, it is not something of which we should be discouraged nor should it be despised, for God is just, righteous, and true, desiring beyond our comprehension that we become one with Him, even as He is one with the Son Jesus Christ, so much so, that we should consider the command to be Holy as evidence that He has made us able also to perform it.

Let us avoid the powerful grip of wickedness which results from unbelief, for if we do not believe we can be Holy, we have given ourselves to wickedness and offended the Holy and precious gift of God toward us despising the holy sacrifice of The Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the living Son of God who left Glory to secure our place in the Heavenly and divine creation to come.

If God left Glory to suffer the death on the cross for us, then how important do we think it is to Him to also finish in us the work He started; and if we entered in to this life with Him through faith and believing and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, then how else shall we continue on into the holiness to which we are called and without which no man shall see God?

Can we achieve FREEDOM by focusing on the MIND, or is the HEART the most important body part to keep pure?

I wrote this in response to a post on Facebook (my Facebook page) in which it was said that we should focus on what we put in our skulls.

– –

Isn’t the HEART the deepest seat of our emotions though — the deepest source — the most important place for us to keep clean and PURE? The Bible seems to emphasize the heart, which is listed almost 1,000 times. We’re supposed to love God with ALL of our HEART, for example (not just even a part of it). And science has proven that the heart is “more than a pump,” having even brain-like tissue from where people make some decisions with and even without brain interaction.

Jesus warned us: everyone who gazes at a woman to LUST after her has committed ADULTERY with her already IN HIS HEART (Mt. 5).

Jesus said the tormentors will affect us if we don’t FORGIVE everyone FROM OUR HEARTS (Mt. 18).

James-3 curses originate in the heart:
“But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition IN YOUR HEART, don’t boast and don’t lie against the truth. This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and DEMONIC.” (James 3: 14,15)

Create in me a pure heart,” David said.

“THE GOAL of this command is LOVE, out of a PURE HEART and a good conscience and sincere faith.” (1 Tim. 1:5)

(John 17:1) These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

(John 17:2) As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.

(John 17:3) And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

(John 17:4) I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

(John 17:5) And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

(John 17:6) I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

(John 17:7) Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.

(John 17:8) For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.

(John 17:9) I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.

(John 17:10) And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

(John 17:11) And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

(John 17:12) While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

(John 17:13) And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.

(John 17:14) I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

(John 17:15) I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.

(John 17:16) They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

(John 17:17) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

(John 17:18) As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

(John 17:19) And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

(John 17:20) Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

(John 17:21) That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

(John 17:22) And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

(John 17:23) I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

“She witnessed how countless people on Earth kept ignorantly falling into the pit of Hell, and it was breaking God’s heart.”

“This torment is for all those who ignore God’s word and continue to commit sin.”

“She saw the destination of all those who do not repent. Their torment is endless, and it is breaking the heart of Jesus.”

“On Earth, she was shown that when a person watches a violent, secular movie, that demons would actually torment the person’s soul without the person realizing it.”

(video) Paul Washer: “We Have Forgotten that the Way is Narrow” [The title is GREAT, but this is another way of teaching the false doctrine of once-saved-always-saved. The key isn’t in truly being born-again and then God automatically does it. Many have truly been born-again. The key is to safely abide in Christ from where life flows and ‘ONE’ can happen!!!]

Since I have written Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?, it would seem logical that I would agree with a message entitled We Have Forgotten that the Way is Narrow. I do appreciate very much what Paul Washer says here, but he is teaching another form of the once-saved-always-saved fallacy in this presentation; though, this is much less dangerous than how most teach once-saved-always-saved.

The extreme view:
Charles Stanley and many others teach that if a person is truly born-again, there is nothing they can do to lose their salvation. Even unrepentant rapists and murderers go to heaven in this teaching

Paul Washer and some others’ view:
If a person is truly born-again, God will make sure that the person will stay enough on the right path that he or she will go to heaven no matter what. Washer probably believes in God’s sovereignty, instead of man having free will and therefore personal responsibility.

What I believe:
Many have been truly and sincerely born-again. Many have sincerely tried to follow the Holy Spirit (or do so in spurts), Who is in them, prompting them to overcome and convicting them of sin, but many are willfully disobeying to the degree that they’re not making sure they are right with their brothers and sisters and God Himself so they have clean consciences to be able to enter heaven, according to what the Bible really says. I show in Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? what the Bible really teaches regarding what God requires of His people. Our hearts must be pure. We must overcome as God enables us to do so by His Grace.

I believe that truly born-again people can easily (especially these days with all of these temptations) willfully sin to where we leave the safe place of abiding in Christ, to where our consciences condemn us. And unless we repent and get right with God again (and sometimes this means getting right with people too), then we are in danger of going to Hell.

This is not normal Christianity, but it is normal for many ‘Christians’ today. Many have been led astray into thinking that we can ignore the warning-promptings of the Holy Spirit and the meek Jesus will give us the thumbs up anyway. But Jesus in heaven is not mainly meek. Jesus is endued with power, completely holy. If our consciences bother us on earth, where His presence is right now not very strong, imagine how our unclean consciences will shout at us. We will tremble when we stand before our HOLY GOD, face to face, horrified by our guilt that remains!!!

Consider this pastor, who would have spent eternity in hell just because he refused to forgive his wife:

Pastor DIES > goes to HELL because he HADN’T FORGIVEN his wife > AROSE from the dead almost 2 days later > tells story

Washer ignores the many verses that I give in “Who-Goes-to-Heaven Scriptures…” that show how holy we must be to be going-to-heaven children of God.

I know a pastor, locally, who was going to teach a number of messages about who goes to heaven. Before he did so, he promised he’d look at my writings. I was so excited and certain we could get on the same page and help revival to soon happen. To my utter shock and amazement, he ended up refusing to read what I wrote, and he taught similarly to what Paul Washer teaches in this message regarding the Calvinist perseverance of the saints doctrine — that if a person is truly born-again they will persevere, showing fruit — even if there is bad fruit, willful, unrepentant sin in there too. He then cut me off from his life, and hasn’t spoken to me since; even though, an overseer must be blameless: Paul’s Elders’ qualifications revisited: What does ‘BLAMELESS’ mean? — Most pastors are biblically disqualified.

I appreciate Paul Washer’s willingness to teach about the fear of the Lord and some of the warning scriptures, but it doesn’t seem to me that this kind of teaching really is bringing about Christlike fruit in which people are really getting holy and right with God and each other so we can be free — and ‘ONE’!

I don’t see the joy of the Lord here. I still see a license for willful sin. The emphasis in this kind of teaching isn’t in overcoming, but in getting truly born-again, which I believe many really have been. Because being born-again is a decision we make, God giving us the grace in order to respond to His wooings. And walking with Christ is also a daily, even hourly decision we make. We can walk out of His hand. We can remove ourselves away from the Vine in order to do our own thing that we know He doesn’t approve of. Jesus in John 15 is very clear, and tells of the consequences if we were to die in that state.

We can become prodigal sons and daughters. We can forfeit our birthright. But we can also come back to Him, where He will run to us with open arms, where we can live safely in Christ.

It’s up to us, for we know what His will is: that all would be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Jesus will always enable us to overcome. But it’s up to us to abide in Him, connected to the Vine, so His sap can flow through us where fruit will remain — so we won’t be thrown into the fire and burned.

The ball is in our court, not God’s.

God has sovereignly given us free will to determine our own fate. And I just don’t understand how pastors can think things are okay when the presence of God can hardly even be felt during group ‘worship.’ Shouldn’t that be a warning sign that something isn’t right, because God “resists the proud but gives grace to the humble?”

Why aren’t pastors relentless in figuring out what is wrong with us so God can move among us again as a group?

Most pastors are confidence men, telling the people “I’m okay; you’re okay,” when hardly anyone is okay with God, really — or we’d be ‘ONE,’ and the world would know. God’s grace would be so filling us. We’d be shouting for joy!!!

Let us be ‘ONE’!!!

May we be free in Him — demon and false-doctrine free. Then the world will know — John 17. Now, they smell a rat until we are holy.

They’ll know us by our love for another. OSAS does not compel us to walk in perfect love for one another so the glory of God can give us so much real, overcoming joy that the world will know!!!

Power to the peaceful!!!
