will not leave us but only grieve. The Holy Spirit will not leave us because we are righteous by the blood. Ephesians 4 : 30 Says, And grieve not the holy spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. God has marked us till the day of redemption, which cannot be erased.Even if we sin, we are righteous but we should not grieve the spirit. We should take in more of grace word then only works of grace will come out. We should never condemn ourselves but only take more grace. The basic quality that the church needs is more and more grace. James 2 : 14 Says, What doth it pro?t, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? People say that they have faith. But it is a waste if there are no works. People say that they believe grace. It is not enough if they only believe as they are also supposed to do works of Grace. Faith and Grace without works cannot save. James 2 : 15 - 20 Says, If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and ?lled; not withstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it pro?t? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? If Grace does not show works, then it is dead. Faith on grace shows works. We should show God our works and then ask him to bless us. We should give God and the poor. If we show a commitment for such works, then God will bless our generations. The common knowledge of the world is that if a person has a heart problem, then the children also will have it. Satan will curse generations. If a curse can be so powerful, what about the blessing? “A blessing overwrites and overtakes the curse and reverses it”. The sickness and lack which are from generations will be removed . And our generations will become healthy and wealthy. James 2 : 21 - 22 Says, Was not Abraham our father justi?ed by works, when he had o?ered. Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? When Abraham believed God, he was made righteous so only righteous works were seen. Good works will come from every person who believes in Grace. Faith is made perfect by works. Faith can fail and become imperfect without works. We should always hold onto truth. If we lie, we cut away God from us. If we speak the truth, we involve the mighty creator.He will give us the power, as truth is more powerful than a lie. Grace is not cheap. It is powerful so will bless us enormously. James 2 : 23 Says, And the scripture was ful?lled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. Abraham became righteous and then showed actions of righteousness. Abraham was called the Friend of God because God liked him so much. If we are people of truth, integrity and character, then we are friends of God. Titus 2 : 11 - 12 Says, 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; What appeared to all men? The Grace of God. Who is this grace of God? Grace is Jesus Christ himself! Hallelujah! Jesus is full of grace and truth. Grace appeared so that we will deny ungodliness and worldly lusts. Grace will teach us to live soberly, righteously and godly. What is ungodliness? If we do not have a relationship with God then it is ungodliness. If we read the word, pray and attend the church regularly, then we will not give a chance for ungodliness. Grace does not promote ?lth of the world, lies, sin ect. Grace is to purify and make us holy. Grace will give us a righteous, holy and truthful life. Our holiness and righteousness are of Grace and we are more holy than anybody. Our body consists of 3 parts, Spirit, Soul and Body. We are righteous in the spirit. When we take the word, it will go to the spirit, the soul (conscience) and comes out of the body. The actions of the body which are seen by the world are controlled by the soul. We are holy in the spirit but still our body does something bad because there is no word. So, when we listen to the word, the righteousness of the spirit will go to the soul and from there comes out of the body. So, we need to read more word, pray more and listen to more word. If we do all this, then the righteous works will manifest. Hallelujah! Amen. THE ACTS AUGUST 2013 PAGE 07
