God's Amazing Grace
Category: Teaching Topics

A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Our crowning achievement is to bend our evil inclinations, to love The LORD our ELOHIYM, to walk in HIS ways, and cleave to HIM.  To cleave to HIM means to have faith. To walk in HIS ways means to be close to our HEAVENLY FATHER. To be close to HIM means to be similar to HIM. Therefore our crowning achievement is to be like HIM:
      HE Acts                                              Crowning Achievement
…with Loving Kindness                          …we act with loving kindness
…with mercy                                                               …we act mercifully
…in charity                                                                 …we act charitable
…and He is TRUTH                                            …we are truthful 

 

GOD’S AMAZING GRACE        
"Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy To the church of the Thessalonians in GOD the FATHER and the LORD JESUS CHRIST: Grace to you and peace from GOD our FATHER and the LORD JESUS CHRIST." [2 Thessalonians 1. 1] 

 

These are the very first of Paul’s divinely inspired words and in this first of his inspired greetings, he set a pattern which he would continue to follow in all his other epistles,  Paul always begins with an implicit prayer that both grace and peace, sent from the GOD THE FATHER, and HIS SON, the LORD Y’SHUA, the ANOINTED ONE, would be received and experienced by all who he was writing to, and those who read and believed. Furthermore, grace always precedes peace in these salutations, because one must receive the grace of GOD before he can experience the peace of GOD. 

 

Paul’s strong emphasis on grace — preceding anything else he might write to the church or its pastor — he confirmed the great importance of GOD’S loving grace. Grace is the first essential in salvation and is the continuing vital essential in CHRIST-like living. The Thessalonians had already been saved by grace through faith, but now the grace of GOD their FATHER and Y’SHUA ha’MASHIACH their LORD must also be lived out in their personal behavior, especially in their dealings with others, to whom GOD would also manifest HIS grace through them. 

 

In closing, Paul also ended every one of his epistles with a prayer that the grace of CHRIST the LORD would continue to be with all who would read them. Finally, the last of his inspired words, written while he was in prison, to his young disciple, Timothy, were "The LORD JESUS CHRIST be with your spirit. Grace be with you. Amen." [2 Timothy 4. 22] 

 

Every life in MESSIAH must begin, continue, and end in the sustaining grace of the BELOVED SAVIOR. The dispensation of grace is real stewardship, a responsibility committed to every one who believes. Indeed, the very last revealed words of the ALMIGHTY ONE HIMSELF WHO’S coming will be quickly are: "The grace of our LORD JESUS CHRIST be with you all. Amen." [Revelation 22. 21]   Thanks be to our LOVING MASTER for HIS amazing love. 

 

Sha’alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of Jerusalem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Whoever walks upright, works righteousness and speaks the truth will abide in the LORD'S Tabernacle and dwell in HIS holy hill.  Watch and pray that you may be found worthy.  Be encouraged and stand strong, the LORD MESSIAH Y’SHUA our KING is coming soon!
"Kumi Ori — Arise & Shine!"  Stay alert for such a time as this, keep watching and praying. Blessings to all who love Zion!  

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
