Most Christians live in a world of a neutered god that doesn’t have the power to Heal completely, Forgive adequately or Love Divinely and then they scratch their head and wonder why it is so hard to be a Christian – If GOD IS your GOD then LET HIM BE TRULY GOD for GODS Sake!
“Now to him who is able to establish you in accordance with my gospel, the message I proclaim about Jesus Christ, in keeping with the revelation of the mystery hidden for long ages past, but now revealed and made known through the prophetic writings by the command of the eternal God, so that all the Gentiles might come to the obedience that comes from faith— to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen.” Romans 16:25-27
Paul preached The Gospel of Jesus Christ saying that Jesus finished His mission here on earth by creating Once and For All The Path to God By Grace Through Faith in Him Alone! While the vast majority of Christians will agree with this statement they don’t ingest it, open it up in the heart and let it invade their souls!
What Jesus did and still does for All who believe IS Complete! He Heals you of your humanness, Forgives you of ALL your sin – past, present and future and places you under Grace by taking you out from under the law!
HE IS COMPLETE AND SO ARE YOU!
The Gospel was a mystery until Jesus completed it by bringing in the new covenant! In short – CHRIST CHANGED EVERYTHING! At the same time the mystery is that everyone who was ever declared righteous was righteous by Faith NOT by works of the law – they just didn’t know at the time that their Faith was what was making them Whole!
Keep in mind that at this time there were a multitude of religions and to include Judaism they were all legal – so what made this new religion called “the way” different? It wasn’t a religion of stupidity lumped on stupidity as it is now – back then it taught THE BIG WIN was won entirely by an outlaw hung on a cross and that if you follow Him it isn’t about “doing” some laws or codes – it’s about Loving others as He Loved!
