A prophetic word from Rob Rufus...24 Feb 2008

"There is rapidly occurring across the earth a division between law teaching and grace teaching. God Himself is doing it.Some of those who still preach a mixture of law and grace, will first try to be diplomatic and reasonable. Under the surface, they will carry hatred and envy. They will seek to disguise this in a form of godliness and theological reasonings but God in these days is going to expose the true state of their hearts.

This is not a gentle reformation. This is a true revolution.Those who do not understand this, will be utterly dismayed, at how quickly this revolution is about to spread.In this revolution, the gospel of grace, revealed in the New Covenant, will spread like wild fire.There will be unhealthy extremes on the left and on the right, in reaction to this.

There will be voices that will attempt to gain advantage by appearing to be balanced diplomats, calling for calm. But I will sweep these self appointed voices of reason aside and silence them swiftly. Says God.Those with secure, pure hearts, will steward this revolution. Not panicking at the unhealthy extremes, or trying prematurely to balance everything.

You see, it is not the message of grace that is causing the extremes or imbalance, but it is the result of entrenched, deeply established legalism, and mans control, surfacing because of the intensifying pressure of the grace revolution.This revolution will force the mask off every form and appearance of godliness that denies the power of the New Covenant.This gospel revolution is not to be blamed for the ugliness that will appear in some.

It is simply forcing the true nature of legalism out into the open and stripping it of all its disguises, so that even the naive and the deceived will see how truly hideous its face really is.The camouflage of legalism is being removed, so that it can no longer harass from hidden positions that have an appearance of godliness.

The people in these days who fearlessly embrace Grace and remain pure hearted and faithful, enduring hardship and refusing to be polluted by bitterness during persecution, will be partners with the Holy Spirit in seeing entire nations birthed into revival. So rejoice.Romans 5 speaks about the suffering we endure. The context is not the suffering of sickness and all of that. It is suffering for the message of grace. Check it out, it is right there.

But He said "This suffering will build character in you, and that character will build hope in you."I am suffering for preaching this message beyond what some of you realize.Your reputation will suffer. As you embrace the Grace message, you will stir up every legalistic demon to alienate you and cut you off, but friends, God will draw closer to you.

The refreshing of hope and the gospel will fill you with wonder. The glory of God will become more present in your life.I am so amazed at how few Christians daily experience the manifest glory of God. I experience His glory presence every day and it is available to every believer, but you have to reject legalism. You have got to reject the fear of man.

You have got to let God topple the control government of religion and the fear of man, condemnation, legalism and the performance pressure to do things to earn mans favour and God's favour. You don't have to do a thing to earn God's favour. He loves you right now, unconditionally because you are forgiven, you are cleansed, you are in Christ. You are a new creation, in Christ.Everything from the old system of religion has passed away. The Old Covenant has passed away.

It is obsolete. God said "I hated it."God says in Hebrews 6 about the Old Covenant of law. He says it is weak and useless covenant. God said that about His own covenant in Hebrews 7.There are still people mixing that weak and useless, condemning, that kills people. That Old Covenant.

They are still mixing it with the New Covenant and confusing Christians, in a cocktail of old and new.God is stripping that, and is exposing that. And there is no middle ground left.It is either New Covenant embraced 100%, Old Covenant 100% rejected. Or Nothing.There is no more room. God is doing it in the earth today."
