Paul writes to the Church in Ephesus. #5

Pastor Vic continues with this series of teaching from Paul's letter to the Ephesians.

Pastor Vic shares, from the Word, the truth about our acceptance and adoption by God through the finished work of Jesus on the cross.

Once again you will hear that it is not your actions that make you holy but your knowledge, and understanding, of the Word will renew your mind to the truth that, as a born again believer, you are already holy and righteous and this will lead you to be holy in your actions! As soon as you become a born again believer, God sees you holy and righteous straight away! Because of the finished work of Jesus on the cross you are a co-heir of Christ and your inheritance is available right now, right here!

NB: In this message Pastor Vic makes some statements which, if taken out of context and you do not listen to the whole message, will offend. Be blessed by listening to the whole message.

Paul writes to the Church in Ephesus. #4

If you are a born again believer, do you believe that, by the gift of grace, you are a saint and holy?

As born again believers we need to have a true understanding and revelation to renew our minds to the truth that we are holy and a saint.

The way we think dictates the way we act; change the way we think and we change the way we act. As born again believers we do not do holy actions to become holy; once you know you are holy you will start to act holy!

When we know, and understand, what we have in Christ, we then start to realise and understand that God sees us, spirit to spirit, blameless and unblemished! Hallelujah!

Paul writes to the Church in Ephesus. #3

Many born again believers exclude themselves from God's blessings. We need to understand and believe the Word of God when it tells us, in Ephesians 1:3, that we have been blessed, "with all spiritual blessings" right here and now!

Yes, the verse does seem to go on to indicate that those blessings are only for us when we get to heaven.

However, listen to Pastor Vic as he relates this verse to other verses of the Word which show that God's blessings are for all born again believers right here, right now, for this earthly life! This life is not about just accepting 'whatever' when you are on this earth! Our identity is in Christ!

In our Spirit we already have, "all spiritual blessings."

Pastor Vic continues to share from Paul's letter to the Ephesians and challenges some doctrinal beliefs about the sovereignty of God and wether God's Will always comes about.

We are reminded in this message that we have been given free will to make decisions in our lives. So, is God in complete control? Does He bring pain and havoc into our lives to 'have His own way?' Are we acting out some kind of 'big plan' in a totally pre-ordained world?

This message comes with a 'be prepared to be offended' warning.
