One of the saddest things about “Grace Twisting” is that it robs believers of the joy of following Jesus.
“Grace Twisters” preach “another Jesus”, they say that Jesus was a law preacher and even claim that He was preaching “Moses 2.0” – an advanced version of the law. They also claim that after Jesus rose from the grave, for 40 days He taught His disciples the true Gospel and what they should preach. Hence they claim much of the words in red in your Bible are not applicable to New Testament believers… huh?
It is funny to note that all the Gospels were written after the Resurrection.
Jesus also said, “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
When you read Matthew, Mark, Luke, John – believe it – it is Jesus’ words to you. Be a disciple of Jesus, be a follower of Jesus. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
Build your house on the rock, hear Jesus’ words and put them into practice. Everyone means you.
Put yourself in the Apostles shoes; could you imagine them saying this:
“Let me write about everything that happened in Jesus’ life except this unique Gospel that He taught us after the Cross”….huh? Doesn’t make much sense!
Here is what Jesus said after the resurrection:
“Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:
Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?
And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.” Luke 24:25-27
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to OBSERVE ALL THINGS whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” Matthew 28:19-20
John 12:48 “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.”
John 14:23 “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”
Behind every word spoken there is a spirit, you must discern the spirit behind much of what is spoken today. Is it against or for sin? Is it for or against Jesus and His words?
We want to encourage you today to follow Jesus…Be a disciple…
