Grace is the Truth

Grace is the only way out.

In my first book “Grace is The Truth”, I wrote about the Gospel of Christ which is grace, referring on the scripture and what the scripture says. In the gospel of Christ, it is very clear and without any reasonable doubt that we are righteous by faith in Christ and we no longer under the law or justify by it (law) but we are justified freely by grace through faith.

It is the power of God unto salvation. In this article I want to go a little bit deeper onto salvation that Christ brought to everyone who believes in Him. It is not all about forgiveness of sins, yes I agree with you, forgiveness of sins is the foundation of the Gospel and the best gift ever that God has made available to everyone. Jesus Christ died at the cross that everyone who believes in him may be saved. John 3:16 (NIV) says,

Jesus Christ died at the cross that everyone who believes in him may be saved. John 3:16 (NIV) says,

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one the only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not parish but have eternal life.”

I am glad that the bible said whoever, so there are no qualifications, good or bad, whoever, rich or poor, whoever, brown or green, whoever, tall or short, whoever, young or old, whoever, pastor or prostitute, whoever. There are no qualifications, whoever believes in Jesus Christ shall not parish and will have eternal life. God is saying come home, whoever believes in Jesus shall be save and receives the forgiveness of sins. The bible says Jesus died not only for the sins of the believers but for the sins of the whole world that whoever believes him shall be saved. John the Baptist said when he saw Jesus coming toward him on John 1:29,

“Look, the Lamb of God. Who takes away the sin of the whole world.”

Meaning Jesus has taken care of sin, I am glad again John said the sin of the whole world not only of believers or good people but for everyone. The only sin that is not forgiven unless you repent of it before you die is rejecting Jesus Christ, there is no more sacrifice left for you. Do not get me wrong and think that everyone is automatically saved or salvation for all, there is no such a thing. Yes, salvation is available to all but you have to make a choice to believe in our Lord Jesus Christ than you are saved. Remember, God is not a dictator, He freely gave us a choice, so we to make choice. Even in the garden of Eden, He said to Adam on Genesis 2:16,

“You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

In this verse God gave man a choice to eat or not to eat, but what is good about God, He told man what are the consequences of eating from the tree of knowing good and evil. That they will surely die. Guess what, man did eat from the tree of knowing good and evil and indeed man died spiritual hence the bible say, ‘we were alienated from God’. The good news is that Jesus Christ our Lord came to give us life, to give it more abundantly and to restore everything that Adam lost. Let’s quickly go to these two verses, first one Jesus said on his own words on John 10:10 (NIV)

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

I love the next verse that says he came to reconcile us back to God, that is which Adam lost.

“Once we were alienated from God and enemies in your minds because of your evil behaviour. But now he has reconciled you by Christ physical body through death to present you holy in his sight

 No more tears child of God. We have been reconciled back to God our Father through Christ physical body. The divine exchange happened at the cross. Jesus at the cross took all our sins, past present and future sins, so that whoever believes in him may receive forgiveness of sins and the His righteousness. Meaning Jesus had no sin in Him but became sin for us at cross. Before you say I’m making this up lets go to 2 Corinthians 5:21,

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”

In this verse the bible says we are in Him, and in him we are the righteousness. To be righteous is be sinless or as if you never sinned before. We all know that we did sin and we still sin but God our Father on His mercy by His grace and love for He sent His only Son to take our place as sinners at the cross so that we can take his place of sinless life and become the righteousness of God. When God our Father says we are righteous in Christ, He means just that. He is not playing games. Today onward start seeing yourself as God sees you in Christ, He sin you sinless and faultless. I know this sound likes I have gone too far but wait until you finish this book, I want to give you the richness of the salvation of Christ.

Most Christians confuses the old covenant (law of Moses) and the new covenant (The Gospel of Christ). The two covenants are where the body of Christ (the church) is struggling or missing it they can’t differentiate between the two covenants. In our bible it is very simple the old testament presents the old covenant and the new testament presents the new covenant.

About Brian Zondi

Brian Zondi Is the founder of Kingdom Minded Church. He received revelation from God by continuous, daily reading of the word of God through the help of the Holy Spirit. Here is what Brian says about his mission: I am the preacher of righteousness that is from God not of men. I was so amazed by the love of God that is found in the person Jesus Christ our Lord. When God revealed this grace from the scripture to me, I knew it was a call to expose this wonderful grace to all the nations of the world, as He commanded us to preach the gospel to all four corners of the world. The grace of God has been suppressed by the enemy for far too long and the body of Christ has been held hostage by the things that seem to have victory over them but the truth is the power has been given to believers. In Christ victory is certain and change is inevitable. Right believing produces right living. The only way to live a successful and prosperous life is through understanding the Grace of God. This is the way to live the true holy life that God requires. Brian Zond is a graduate from the University of the Free State, South Africa. He is married to a beautiful woman, Nontuthuko Zondi.
