Demystifying The Biblical Term God's Grace.
Simply Replace the word "Grace" with ENABLE or ENABLEMENT and your life will never be the same!!!
Yes, there. Now I've said it.
I was taught this truth in 1993. Since that time, I've never yet seen a place where it did not work with perfect harmony with the spirit of the New Testament or Old, to replace the word grace with enable or enablement.
You know, I could punish you with a major involved essay pointing at this deep point and that, but in the end, it is only what you believe in your heart that matters. What will benifit you!! So as a free gift, I would like to invite you personally and give you permission unequivocably to take the word "grace" in the bible and replace it with the word "enable" or "enablement".
You can throw away any thoughts of association to FORGIVENESS, which is what most of our current religious luminaries default to. The thought of forgiveness in the place of grace is the perfect smoke screen for those who seek to delude or simply know not better... But it is an utter deception with only a partical of truth to it. The fact is that God's forgiveness TAKES CARE OF the forgiveness issue:
I will separate you from your sin as far as the east is from the west
no, grace is completely different. It is all about how our loving Father gives enables us with all that we need to live an overcoming life.
Jesus tells us to "be perfect" (Matthew 5:48).
Many may scoff at the thought of "being perfect". Or better yet, let's justify it or make excuses on why it doesn't really apply to us. But the truth is that we CAN live perfect lives with the ENABLEMENT that comes from a loving Father who has already lead the way. He has already "blazed the trail" to living the perfect life. THEN He shows us and enables us to do the same..
It is no wonder that the people who Jesus said would be raptured away (Mat 24:41, Luk 17:35) who are mentioned in Rev 14:3b (redeemed from the earth) are the one's who "FOLLOW THE LAMB WHEREVER HE LEADS"... Doesn't this following the lamb indicate the enablement of the follower to do so?
