Your kingdom come ?

Sanctification IS by GRACE through FAITH...In the heavenly realms, in Christ, we are FULLY sanctified, FULLY healed, FULLY restored, FULLY satisfied all by grace, but here on the earthly realm it is not so....NOW, whose "responsibility" is it to see whats on earth line up with whats in heaven.....? That's a good question and i am glad you asked it ;-)

Grace WAS Gods part, now through faith (our PART) in his Provision (Grace) WE "work" it out here on earth...

Jesus said "Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven" is MY work (by the obedience of faith) to make what is in heaven a reality here on earth....

Are there believers that you know that are NOT living as "more than conquerors"? mmmm, why not? is God not doing his job...NO...He has already provided EVERYTHING we need for life and godliness...NOW by faith we make that a reality on earth...Paul said, God can do immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine according to His POWER that's at work in US ...

There are hundreds of thousands of believers that God has not done for them what they asked or imagine (He's already done it actually), why ? because God didn't want to? No, because they did not partner with God...unlike Abraham who was strengthened in his faith, they were weakened in their faith through unbelief (in His goodness)...(The Apostle Peter (2 Pet 1) calls it blind and nearsighted! Blind because they are not seeing their provision (grace) and nearsighted because they are satisfied with instant gratification of the flesh and taken their eyes off eternity))


You can have "faith for something" but without an appropriate corresponding action all that faith is is a theory... which at the end of the day is not faith at all, because faith is a substance and theory is not...

Stay in the Blessing...its your destiny! :-)

The truth about the if-then theory

Some people say..."its not by what YOU do!".....They are far as the grace (provision) of God is concerned...Jesus did it all 2000 (odd) years ago on the cross and 50 days later the Holy Spirit was poured out..provision for all!!! far as the earthly realm is concerned there lots we should be doing....Sanctification is by grace THROUGH FAITH....Rom 8..."If YOU live by your corrupt nature, YOU are going to die. But if YOU use your spiritual nature (BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH!) to put to death the evil activities of the body, YOU will live."

Faith comes by hearing about the provision (GRACE) through the word of God...and faith is essentially a 4 part process...hear, meditate, speak, do...if i am not doing, i am really not hearing all that God is trying to tell me about his goodness...and if i am REALLY honest with myself, i am calling him a liar...But Craig, there is now NO condemnation for those in Christ...yes you are correct, only issue is...The law is the power of sin in the flesh, if we are living according to the flesh, then we are going back under the law and make no mistake, the law brings guilt and condemnation...That's why, if WE live by the Spirit (BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH - THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH!) we will LIVE !!
