i sit here in His presence and think. Father, how simple you have made it, but in being so simple so many complicated salvation through reasoning and wild imaginations.
Our God says… just believe and you will be justified. Just as if you’ve never sinned. The blood of Christ will enter you, the Character of God will enter you, the Spirit of Grace will enter you and begin the good works inside you in which you have been predestined to do from the beginning of time. The Spirit of Christ will indwell your mortal body and you will become a new creation in God.
Justification by faith – what do we mean by that? We mean, in terms of justification, to be declared righteous. How shall a man be just before God? How can a man enter God’s presence? How can a man be acceptable to God?
The New and Better Testament says, “By faith alone.” That’s the doctrine of justification by faith, that a man is made acceptable to God by his faith in the perfect work of Christ, no other way. And nothing that man does, nothing that man attempts in the sense of self-righteousness, has anything to do with it at all. Doesn’t matter how good he is or how bad he is, it’s only a question of believing in Jesus Christ that justifies a man.
We receive the Holy Spirit by faith. This baptism of the Holy Spirit is the New Birth promised by Jesus. This must happen to be empowered to resist the enemies we face.
The Spirit of Grace clothes us with Power to overcome and live from a place in Christ in victory.
you ask, you believe and repeat until the miracle happens.
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
