Did you know that the Grace Covenant began when Christ died on the Cross at Calvary? Many people today don’t realize this great Bible truth.
The Law of Moses was a great blessing for Israel and within it contained 613 commandments, not just 10. The Law said, Thou shall and thou shall not”. The Law taught Israel what to do in order to be holy.
The Grace of God that flows from Calvary does not tell people what to do like the demands of the Law. The Grace of God that flows from Calvary comes to the human soul as a result of what Christ did. Grace is not only the outflow of Calvary but its also the outflow of the power of a resurrected Christ. Yes, my Brothers and Sisters unlike every religion in the world Christ is alive NOW! His Grace “flows” from His Divine presence and His Divine work on the cross at Calvary.
The Law of Moses is great! The Grace of God is greater! The Law of Moses required “works”. The Grace of God requires “faith in Christ”. Faith in Christ brings the power of God’s Grace into the human soul. Grace cleanses the heart from sin and produces the holy life. Law only offered atonement for sins once a year when sacrifice was offered to the priest.
The Law ministered obligation to God. Grace is ministered by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit flows from the cross at Calvary. Divine Grace keeps the Holy Spirit present in our hearts and lives. Our faith is not built on obedience to keep the Law. Our faith is built on what Christ did and what He’s doing right now from the Throneroom.
The blessing of God’s Grace keeps the Holy Spirit present in the heart of a child of God. If you are under Grace you “will” obey God and you “will” mind the Spirit. By doing such you are no longer a criminal or a rebel in the eyes of God. You will keep the the Law of God because you are obedient to God. You have power to obey and live holy. You who are children of God are led by the Spirit of God.
That’s why the power of Divine Grace that flows from the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ is greater than human effort to keep the Law of Moses. After all how many Gentiles around the globe even know what the 613 Law’s and Commandments really are?
The only thing the Grace of God requires is your faith in the fact that Christ was and is God. Faith in Christ brings the power of Divine Grace into the human being. Forgiveness is found! Removal of guilt is found! Salvation is found! The heart is cleansed not by your own works but by the work of Christ.
The Law of Moses was great for Israel! The Grace of God is greater because its for every human being on planet Earth. Jew or Gentile! Christ tore down the wall of partition for just the Jew only under Law. Now Grace is given to every nation, every culture, every race, and every type of human being on planet earth. How?
Through Jesus Christ who is alive right now! The Lord of Lords who will consume every religion on Earth! The King of Kings who will make every knee bow and every tongue confess. The God of our Salvation who provides us with the greatest blessing that ever came upon humanity, “Divine Grace”. Glory! Not what we do but what He does. Glory!
Rom 6:14…For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Titus 2:11-14…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 Saviour 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
