FROM RFWO PULPIT Features only Sundays. Rapture Consciousness
Dont’t Frustrate Grace.
Our Foundational Scriptures (FS) are taken from Titus 2:11- 13(AMP), “For the grace of God (His unmerited favor and blessing) has come forward (appeared) for the deliverance from sin and the eternal salvation for all mankind. 12 It has trained us to reject and renounce all ungodliness (irreligion) and worldly (passionate) desires, to live discreet (temperate, self-controlled), upright, devout (spiritually whole) lives in this present world, 13 Awaiting and looking for the [fulfillment, the realization of our] blessed hope, even the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One),”
Beloved, you were not saved by trying to obey the ten commandments but in love, God saved you by Grace through Jesus Christ. As per Ephesians 2:8-9(AMP), “For it is by free grace (God’s unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ’s salvation) through [your] faith. 9 And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; 9 Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law’s demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]” Are you still standing?
Beloved, God took time to recreate you in Christ Jesus. As per Ephesians 2:10(AMP), “For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]. God had a purpose for re-creating you by Grace. It is to enable you fulfill your destiny. He had predestined the the livestyle you are to conform with. Are you still standing?
Beloved, having been saved, you are expected to yield yourself to the training that Grace brought. We glean this from our FS Verse 12. The training is crucial to enable you live godly in the present rotten world. You will be blasphemous *if you are in Church and still has the culture of unbelievers*. It ought not be so. Let me remind you that God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7). He knows His children. As per II Timothy 2:19 (AMP), “But the firm foundation of (laid by) God stands, sure and unshaken, bearing this seal (inscription): The Lord knows those who are His, and, Let everyone who names [himself by] the name of the Lord give up all iniquity and stand aloof from it.” Are you still standing?
Beloved, therefore do not frustrate the Grace that made you. The training brought by Grace is to prepare you for Rapture (Verse 13 of our FS). At Rapture Jesus will pick Believers that have no spot nor wrinkle (Eph. 5:27). There is no definite time for this event. Therefore train yourself to be be ready 27/7. Prepare to meet the Lord(Amos 4:12)
Beloved, Rapture is real and it is described in I Thessalonians 4: 16-18. When the trumpet of God sounds, preparation for Rapture would have ended. Only those that qualify by meeting God’s standard will be transformed in a moment for the upward transport while confusion will galvanize those not ready.
Congratulations as I see the Grace of God and resurrection Power delivering your expectations to you this season. Apostle (Professor) Samuel A.A. Zelibe [Vision Runner]
