Titus 2:11

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: looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ; who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.

Paul tells Titus first and foremost that it is the grace of God that brings us salvation and has appeared to all men. That grace of God teaches us what we have need of as we await His coming. It brings us salvation and then teaches us what we need to know in the process of awaiting the fulfilment of our salvation, but it is only because of grace.

The word “grace” in the Greek is the word charis. It means: as a gift or blessing brought to man by Jesus Christ, favor, gratitude, thanks, a favor, and kindness. It is only by the grace of God that we are alive, that we are living free from the clutches of the enemy, and that we are saved by His blood. No man seeks God, but God pulls man to Himself by His grace. (Romans 3:11). Grace is not to be complicated; grace is simply a gift from Him. It is by His grace that you are saved through your faith in Him (Ephesians 2:8). Where would you be if it weren’t for the grace of God?

The grace of God teaches us to reject ungodly and lustful desires, to live as sensibly as possible, and to live lives with purpose and spiritual maturity as we await the fulfilment of the appearing of Christ to His Bride and the change of our bodies. It was by His grace that He bled and died for you to redeem you unto Himself and free you from iniquity and purify you. Because of this you are a bit peculiar to the rest of the world, but that is welcomed because we know it pleases Him. It is okay to be zealous of good works. It is only by His grace.

He hides it from the wise and prudent and reveals it to those who deny themselves and take up their cross to follow Him.

Are you living under a law of your own mind or living freely in the grace of God? Accept the simplicity of God’s grace in your spiritual walk and let the Holy Spirit make God’s grace a reality in your life by letting Him teach you, guide you, and free you.

65-0124 - “Birth Pains”

59 And that's the reason it was so hard for those Pharisees to understand our Lord Jesus Christ, because they were under the law. And the law was the Word of God in seed form. But when the Word was made flesh, and become, not law, but grace. Now, grace and law cannot exist at the same time. Cause, grace is so far above law, law is not even in the picture. And therefore it's so hard for the Pharisees to die to their law, so that grace could be born. But it must go. The two laws cannot exist at the same time.

60 There cannot be a law says that you can run this semaphore, and the other one says you can run it; one says you can, one says you can't. They, it has to be one law at a time. Maybe one time you could have went through it; caution, go through it. But this time it's red. Stop! See? And so there cannot be two laws exist at the same time.
