I Have Received Grace

God is the God of grace (1Pe5:10).
He gives grace to whom He wants to give grace (Ex33:19), and
He gives more grace to those who know His grace (Jas4:6).

Faith is boasting the fact that one has received His grace and
The life of this faith is beginning with grace and ending with grace, and thus from the time one
Understood His grace (Col1:6) until the Lord Yeshua brings grace (1Pe1:13).

Grace refers to the gift of God which is freely given
Not because it is worthless but because it is too costly to put a price on it.
The Christian knows grace and receives it (He12:15).

From the beginning of all the epistles of the New Testament to
The last verse of the book of Revelation (Rev22:21),
The Bible demonstrates God’s grace.

According to God’s plan from the beginning He showed His grace:
The general grace — all things — to all living things, humans;
The special grace — the One and Only Son — to the believers, one grace after another (Jn1:16).

Those who especially received grace were
Noah being warned of the flood (Ge6:8), Abram receiving a son at the age of 100 (Ge18:3),
Lot escaping Sodom (Ge19:19), Israel and the exodus etc (Ex18:9).

The commandment that Israel received promised if they obeyed
They would be shown God’s grace for a thousand generations (Dt5:10)
With the fruit of their wombs, the crops of their land,
The calves of their herds and the lambs of their flocks (Dt7:13).

The foundation, the purpose and the heart of the sanctuary was
The mercy seat where the name Jehovah was (Ex25:17; 1Ki7:48-50).
It reminded them that they were a people who received grace (Ex33:17; Jos1:2-3).
However, when they forsook His grace they faced His wrath (1Ki8:23; 2Ch32:25).

According to the prophecies regarding the coming of the year of the Lord’s favor (Is61:2) and
Many peoples and powerful nations coming to Jerusalem to seek His grace (Zec8:22),
Yeshua came and said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days” (Jn2:19-20),
Because through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body,
He would not in the name of Jehovah but in the Father’s name Yeshua (Jn5:43)
Give not the animal sacrifice but His own body which God Himself prepared (Ge22:8; He10:5):
The incarnate Word, the Son of Man came to give His flesh to all men
Showing His grace (Jn1:1, 14; 1Pe2:24).

As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn19:30), declaring that He:
1) Considered it grace the Father’s command to lay down His life (Ps141:5; Jn10:18; He1:2);
2) Judged the devil the ungrateful one (Ge3:4-6; Is14:12-15; Eze28:12-17); and
3) With His blood redeemed all mankind as a propitiation, the mercy seat (hilastḗrion),
Fulfilling the heart of the temple, God’s grace (Rm3:25; Eph1:7; He9:5).

He resurrected and
Sat on the heavenly throne of grace (He4:16; Rev22:1-2).

The Holy Spirit who was sent comes to those who received the grace of the blood of Yeshua and
Lets them grow in the grace and the knowledge of Yeshua (2Pe3:18):
By grace the forgiveness of sin, justified freely (Eph1:7; Rm3:24),
Becoming heirs of God etc (Rm8:16).

He who has received grace considers all things as grace:
Being called, the Word of grace, various gifts (1Co15:10; Ac20:32; Rm15:15),
Even poverty, suffering, tribulation, and sickness (Ps141:5).
Thus, no one can take away the grace he received.
He considers his life worth nothing in testifying to the gospel of God’s grace (Ac20:24) for
The faith he began by grace ends by grace when the Lord of grace returns (1Pe1:13).

O Lord,
How You called us who are not even man or human beings and
You let us hear the Word of the truth —
This is all by Your grace!
Let us know who Yeshua is,
What the grace of Yeshua is.
Let us know the cross as grace and take up the cross and follow You.
I have received grace! Amen.
