THE Grace Awakening
An “awakening” of any kind is a big deal! Wouldn’t you agree? In this thesis, we draw your full attention to “THE Awakening.” We believe this awakening is “THE" awakening of ALL awakenings. Specifically, it’s THE Grace Awakening; THE gift from God.
2 Corinthians 9:8 "And GOD IS ABLE to MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TO YOU, so that ALWAYS HAVING ALL SUFFICIENCY IN EVERYTHING, you may have AN ABUNDANCE FOR EVERY GOOD DEED;"
Because our topic is from the Bible and it pertains to YOUR status and position with God NOW, AND FOR ALL OF ETERNITY, we highly recommend you search the Scriptures for yourself. Don’t rely on us or anyone else, for that matter.
John 5:39 "You SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these THAT TESTIFY OF ME;"
We recommend EVERYONE confirm what they learn with their own prayerful search and study of the Holy Bible. Trust no one but Holy Spirit with your eternity.
John 16:13 "But when He, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, comes, He will guide you INTO ALL TRUTH for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and HE WILL DISCLOSE TO YOU what is to come."
Pray Before THE Awakening Begins
And, as you read our thesis, PRAY, asking Holy Spirit to GUIDE YOU INTO ALL truth. So, before you start, let’s pray!
1 Peter 5:10 "After you have suffered for a little while, THE GOD OF ALL GRACE, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, WILL HIMSELF perfect, confirm, strengthen and establish YOU."
Please join me in prayer as we ask the God of and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of ALL goodness, to give us a spirit of wisdom and revelation of HIM in His Son, our Lord Jesus. Let’s pray for the eyes of our hearts to be enlightened to SEE HIM and to KNOW HIM, to experience THE riches of HIS ABSOLUTE GOODNESS that HE HIMSELF PLACED in us, and to experience the surpassing greatness of HIS power toward us who believe, AMEN!
2 Peter 1:1b-2 “To those WHO HAVE RECEIVED a faith of the same kind as ours, BY the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD and Savior, Jesus Christ: GRACE and PEACE be MULTIPLIED TO YOU in the KNOWLEDGE of God and of Jesus our Lord.”
Did you catch that? Peter is saying that Grace AND Peace, which are FREE gifts from OUR SHARED FATHER, can GROW, MULTIPLE, and INCREASE IN US by simply KNOWING God and beholding Jesus!
Titus 2:11 “For THE grace of God HAS APPEARED, bringing SALVATION to ALL men,”
The implications of THE Grace Awakening are beyond ANYTHING that we can imagine. This topic is so powerful; it’s actually a revelation of Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 4:16 "Therefore let us draw near WITH CONFIDENCE to the THRONE OF GRACE, so that we may RECEIVE MERCY and FIND GRACE to help in time of need."
For me, my life is a perpetual awakening to God’s unlimited Grace, which is an entire KINGDOM. Nothing can describe how beautiful HIS love is. It’s beyond our capacity to understand or express, but it can be experienced. In fact, He insists on it!
Ephesians 3:19-20 "And to KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST which SURPASSES KNOWLEDGE, that YOU may be FILLED UP TO ALL THE FULLNESS OF GOD. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us,"

Again, did you catch that? If so, ponder it in your heart for a moment. Marvel at the truth; “THE” Grace of God HAS appeared, and it IS available to EVERYONE right now! And, with HIS GRACE, we realize He already brought SALVATION to ALL men as a free gift. No qualifications or requirements other than to believe and receive. Can you imagine what that means? Ultimately, there will be no more poverty, no more racism, no more disease or sickness, and no more death. And so much more…
Matthew 11:29 "Take My YOKE UPON YOU and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is EASY and My burden is LIGHT.”
Let the truth in these Scriptures bypass your head and go directly INTO YOUR HEART. The Bible declares that our HEART is our imagination. Sanctify your imagination and get it wholly to God. If you do, the God who created the entire universe and everything in it KNOWS you and LOVES you will FILL YOU WITH GRACE. His love is unlimited and ever-expanding by Grace. Receive it and rest in it, and let YOUR awakening begin.
Luke 2:40 "The Child CONTINUED to GROW and become strong, INCREASING in wisdom; and the GRACE OF GOD was upon Him."

Ask Holy Spirit to reveal the Father’s love IN His Word. Ask that HIS TRUTH transform you completely, from the inside out. Grace has been given to us; it’s ALL ours, without limits, and it will never stop growing, and it’s ALL FREE. It’s THE Grace Awakening.
Luke 2:52 "And Jesus KEPT INCREASING in wisdom and stature, and in FAVOR with God and men."
“Kept increasing” means it NEVER STOPPED, and the reference to “growing in Grace” is perpetual and forever. Those who BELIEVE will perpetually and forever GROW IN GRACE. Can you imagine?
Ephesians 1:3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, WHO HAS BLESSED US with EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING in the heavenly places IN CHRIST,"
How many of us want or need more Grace FROM God? How many of us want to GROW in God’s Grace forever? WE CAN! We can start growing RIGHT NOW, in fact, and never stop; Grace is a FREE Gift directly from the Father’s heart. To know Grace is to know God. His Grace reveals His heart, which is PURE LOVE.
John 1:16-17 "For OF HIS FULLNESS WE HAVE ALL RECEIVED, and GRACE UPON GRACE. For the Law was given through Moses; GRACE AND TRUTH were realized through JESUS CHRIST."

How many of us want to multiply God’s Peace in our life? Like, ALL OF US? It’s not only possible, but it's also inevitably a GUARANTEE! God’s Peace is available to us now and forever.
2 Peter 3:18 "but GROW IN THE GRACE and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, BOTH NOW AND to the day of eternity. Amen."
The bonus that comes with the Gospel of Grace is that WE grow and multiply in His Peace no matter what, even when we don’t deserve it.
John 14:27 “PEACE I LEAVE YOU WITH; MY PEACE I GIVE YOU; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”
SHALOM Peace is guaranteed to EVERYONE who BELIEVES, certified by the ABSOLUTE GOODNESS OF GOD!
2 Thessalonians 3:16 “Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord be with you all!”
Jesus is the ONLY ANSWER!1 BILLION SAVED
Ephesians 2:5--8 "EVEN WHEN WE WERE DEAD in our transgressions, MADE US ALIVE TOGETHER WITH CHRIST (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places IN CHRIST JESUS, so that in the ages to come He might show the SURPASSING RICHES OF HIS GRACE in kindness toward us IN CHRIST JESUS. For BY GRACE YOU HAVE BEEN SAVED through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is THE GIFT OF GOD;"
Let’s build a quick foundation for BELIEVERS. God is our Father. IN HIM, in Christ, we are New Creations. Being Born “from above,” we now have God’s DNA. That’s THE Grace Awakening.
1 John 5:1 WHOEVER BELIEVES that Jesus is the Christ IS BORN OF GOD, and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him.”
Being "Born Again" means we are a new species, Children of God. And, HE DID ALL THE WORK.
John 1:13 “who were born, NOT OF BLOOD nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, BUT OF GOD.”
No child gives birth to itself. The child is not involved in its own creation. It’s the same with BELIEVERS who are “born from above.” We receive Salvation; we don’t make it. IN Christ we are born from above by the will of God; we are made COMPLETELY NEW, born by the Grace of God alone! It is that simple.
John 1:12 “But as many as RECEIVED HIM, to them HE GAVE THE RIGHT TO BECOME CHILDREN OF GOD, even to those WHO BELIEVE in His name,”
We, BELIEVERS IN CHRIST, are His children, and as our Father, WE KNOW HE wants the best for us. He wants us to take all of HIS GOODNESS and SHINE. God is the creator of ALL things, including ALL GOODNESS. Why wouldn’t we gladly RECEIVE ALL of what He has given to us FREELY, especially HIS GOODNESS?
1 John 3:1 “See how GREAT A LOVE the Father HAS BESTOWED ON US, that we would be called CHILDREN OF GOD; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.”
Remember, God has NO EVIL; He is ABSOLUTELY GOOD. God created good, all of it. If it exists and it’s good, then God made it. HE WANTS US TO RECEIVE IT. HE DESIGNED US TO RECEIVE IT. At the same time, God has no bad in Him, no failure, and no possibility of defeat or loss. And to think, His goodness has been poured out into our hearts.
2 Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if anyone is IN CHRIST, HE IS A NEW CREATURE; the old things passed away; behold, NEW THINGS HAVE COME."
In our Heavenly Father and His Son, there is no evil, no bad, no disappointment, no failure, no disease, no sickness, no poverty, and no lack - NADA.
Philippians 2:15 “so that you will prove yourselves to be BLAMELESS AND INNOCENT, CHILDREN OF GOD above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom YOU APPEAR AS LIGHTS in the world,”
There’s no fear, doubt, unbelief, and NO death in our Heavenly Father and His Kingdom, which is IN CHRIST. We are in Christ too. Coincidence? I think not!
Philippians 4:19 “And my God WILL SUPPLY ALL OF YOUR NEEDS according to HIS RICHES in glory IN CHRIST JESUS”
Do you see the repeated pattern? Do you recognize God’s nature of Grace and how He wants to dispense His Grace? Keep in mind, with God, there is ONLY absolute goodness, and there’s no bad, none.
Galatians 2:20 "I HAVE BEEN CRUCIFIED with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but CHRIST LIVES IN ME; and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE BY THE FAITH in the Son of God, WHO LOVED ME and gave Himself up for me."
Can you imagine what “absolute goodness” looks like? Try it out, imagine a Kingdom of absolute goodness, where there's zero bad and no possibility of evil! A world where there’s no knowledge or consciousness of bad or evil. I pray you receive God’s Grace and Peace, and may it be multiplied to you now, in Jesus' name!
1 John 3:2 “Beloved, NOW WE ARE CHILDREN OF GOD, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, WE WILL BE LIKE HIM, because we will see Him just as He is.”
AND GET THIS… Not only ARE WE HIS Children, God our Father has given us ALL THINGS, including His divine nature, which is His likeness and goodness. Now that's remarkable. When I marvel at His goodness, He swallows up my fallenness.
2 Peter 1:3-4 “SEEING THAT HIS DIVINE POWER HAS GRANTED TO US EVERYTHING PRETAINING TO LIFE AND GODLINESS, through the true KNOWLEDGE OF HIM who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these HE HAS GRANTED TO US His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them YOU MAY BECOME PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.”
We have the LIFE OF CHRIST. That is so remarkable! However, we have some choices to make regardless of HIS GIFTS, HIS PROMISES, AND HIS GUARANTEES.
John 15:5 "I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing."
First, know this; in His Kingdom of Grace, there is NO MIXTURE. No Law and Grace mixture. It’s ALL GRACE or nothing.
Romans 8:32 “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not ALSO WITH HIM FREELY GIVE US ALL THINGS?”
In other words, we can’t mix our own efforts with God’s Grace and expect anything good to come of it. Just ask Ananias and Sapphira!
Colossians 2:14 “HAVING CANCELED OUT THE CERTIFICATE OF DEBT consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and HE HAS TAKEN IT OUT OF THE WAY, having nailed it to the cross.”
I can’t pay for my sins and failures; I just can’t. There are too many. The truth is, I can’t do anything apart from Christ, nothing. Trust me, from experience; I NEVER want to do anything apart from Christ EVER again. It’s the same with you, I hope! Nonetheless, what we couldn’t do, God did. That’s the important thing; behold, what Jesus HAS DONE on our behalf once and for all. And, now, as a consequence, IN CHRIST, we can do all things. Nothing is impossible for God; He dwells in us and is always with us.
Philippians 4:13 "I CAN DO ALL THINGS through Him who strengthens me."
So, if we do have a choice, here it is.
Luke 1:37 "For NOTHING will be impossible with God.”
We either WHOLLY follow THE Creator who loves us and gave Himself up for us, or we follow the CREATED, which is our own opinions, judgments, abilities, talents, and efforts. Remember, apart from Christ, we can do nothing. God has a plan; He has a blueprint. It’s in 2 Peter chapter 1; read it!
2 Peter 1:5-7 “Now FOR THIS VERY REASON also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, LOVE.”
RESTING is our new place in the world, so REST in Jesus' FINISHED WORK!
Hebrews 12:2 "FIXING OUR EYES ON JESUS, THE AUTHOR AND PERFECTER OF FAITH, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and HAS SAT DOWN at the right hand of the THRONE OF GOD."
We are now under His Grace, and Grace is the absolute goodness of God. We can’t earn it, and we can’t deserve it either. Grace never demands and always supplies.
Hebrews 4:16 "Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the THONE OF GRACE, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need."
The Father’s absolute goodness IS HIS Glory, and His Glory is His absolute goodness - and we have it all in Christ. On the cross, Jesus took EVERY SIN upon HIMSELF. He took every bad and evil thing that EVER existed upon His Himself before He gave up His Spirit, saying, “IT IS FINISHED!.”
Romans 5:17 "For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ."
Jesus took ALL of the SINS of the WORLD, and when the Father resurrected Him, Jesus left all the sin, darkness, and evil in HELL. ALL OF IT. We were justified (made righteous) BEFORE Jesus was resurrected by the Father.
2 Corinthians 5:21 "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD HIM CHRIST."
HE TOOK IT ALL AND LEFT IT ALL. BELIEVERS are now made RIGHTEOUS forever. As Jesus is in this world, so are we. That’s rather remarkable and awe-inspiring. We are as righteous as Jesus is, by Grace.
1 John 4:17 "By this, LOVE IS PERFECTED WITH US, so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; BECAUSE AS HE IS, SO ALSO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD."
With all our demands met in Jesus, having been reconciled, we are now fully supplied UNDER HIS GRACE. That means every sin anyone ever commits against you in the future HAS ALREADY been judged and paid for BY JESUS on the cross; therefore, it’s been forgiven.
How can you hold anyone accountable for a sin Jesus has already fully paid for and covered? Let that sink in. Under Grace, I am eternally thankful Jesus took ALL of my sins upon Himself. I am grateful He took ALL of the sins of the world too. It's the only way I can live THE forgiven life. Because Jesus already paid for everything, how can I not forgive everyone for everything NOW, even before they harm me?
Romans 6:14 “For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law BUT UNDER GRACE.”
So, the Bible reveals we can GROW in Grace and Peace, and they can even multiply! We also learned experientially from our HEART that Jesus is the author and perfecter of our FAITH. In fact, He’s the author and finisher of ALL faith. Jesus IS faith, faithful, and faithfulness.
1 Corinthians 12:3 "Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit."
Jesus is the only Answer. Do you realize what that means? Do you see it? Jesus even provides OUR FAITH!
Hebrews 12:2 “FIXING OUR EYES ON JESUS, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
As new creations IN CHRIST, we have been given a new nature, the exact nature as Jesus, THE DIVINE NATURE. Now That’s THE Grace Awakening.
2 Peter 1:3-4 “For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them YOU MAY BECOME PARTAKERS OF THE DIVINE NATURE, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust.”
Every time I ponder this truth that God is my Father, I am overwhelmed. As our Father, through FAITH in the Blood of Jesus Christ, I’m aware God HAS already rescued us because He loves us, He adores us, and we are HIS ONLY FAMILY; we are His children and His beloved. We did nothing to deserve any of this, especially His gifts. It’s called the Grace Awakening!
Colossians 1:13 “For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,”
By Grace, we have been SAVED. As a consequence, Jesus gave us His SHALOM Peace. Do you realize what PEACE (SHALOM) means? Shalom means we have HIS physical, emotional, and spiritual wholeness, including HIS full physical and mental health, HIS general sense of well-being with a constant expectation of good, and HIS prosperity! No kidding, we are NEW CREATIONS, and we have the LIFE OF CHRIST, His full life! Can your grasp this in your heart? Can you see it?
3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers."
According to the Bible, we have been given the Peace OF God
Revelation 1:5 “and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins BY HIS BLOOD—”
This means we RECEIVE God’s Grace AND Peace FREELY with no restrictions or restraints. Everything under Grace is a gift, especially God's PEACE. It is all about receiving to share.
Genesis 2:2 "By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done."
God wants us to be TROPHIES OF HIS GRACE. God wants us to be HIS SHINING LIGHTS to the world. It doesn’t get better than this.
2 Timothy 1:9 “who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to HIS OWN PURPOSE AND GRACE which was granted us IN CHRIST JESUS from all eternity,”
Jesus said, “I am your only REDEEMER and your ONLY HOPE. I am THE RESURRECTION, and as a result of MY FINISHED WORK, I have RESTORED Peace with God.”
John 19:30 "Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit."
That means BELIEVERS have Jesus’ full provision, protection, safety, security, certainty, and confidence right NOW.
Hebrews 4:10 "For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His."
SHALOM PEACE: In the absence of ALL evil and IN the presence of God’s ABSOLUTE goodness, we find HIS free gift of PEACE. That's THE Grace Awakening.
3 John 1:2 "Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers."
Jesus’ Peace GIVES us EVERYTHING: healing, health, wholeness, and well-being. We only need to receive it by faith. This ends all sicknesses, all mental health issues, all addictions, all racism, and all poverty. YES!
Matthew 10:8 "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give."
To God THE Father, there are only three types of people; Jews, Gentiles, and His Church.
2 Corinthians 5:20 "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God."
The Jews are His chosen nation, and the Gentiles are lost and without hope apart from Christ, and His Church is His Beloved.
Revelation 19:7 "Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.”
The Church is the Redeemed, and that’s ALL of us; He calls us BELIEVERS and planted His BLUEPRINT in our hearts to follow. PRAISE GOD!
What is THE Grace Awakening?
Grace is God’s UNEARNED and UNMERITED favor, which WAS PROVIDED FOR US before the foundation of the world. Let that soak in. So, before God created anything, including the earth AND man, Grace WAS. Do you realize how amazing that is?
Ephesians 4:7 "But to EACH ONE of us GRACE WAS GIVEN according to the measure of Christ’s gift."
Grace not only was, but we RECEIVED the measure of Christ’s Grace, meaning the SAME exact Grace Jesus has, we have.
Galatians 1:15 "But when God, who had set me apart even from my mother’s womb and called me through His grace, was pleased"
Grace HAD a specific purpose, and that WAS to SAVE us and REDEEM us, perpetually, and all of that happened BEFORE we were created.
Acts 4:33 "And with great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all."
That means it’s rigged in our favor! That’s THE Grace Awakening.
John 17:24 "Father, I desire that THEY ALSO, WHOM YOU HAVE GIVEN ME, be with Me WHERE I AM, so that THEY MAY SEE My glory which YOU HAVE GIVEN ME, for YOU LOVED ME BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD."
God created the world and everything in it BEFORE He created man. But the Word declares that God loved Jesus before the foundation of the World. This means we RECEIVED all of God’s goodness before He knew us and before we did anything, good or bad. That’s THE Grace Awakening.
Ephesians 1:4 "just as HE CHOSE US IN HIM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love."
Ephesians 2:5 "even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),"
Ephesians 2:8 "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;
Within God’s Grace, we RECEIVE His unlimited Favor, which includes His Wisdom, Mercy, and LOVE too. It’s all ONE, and it’s unlimited and FREE, especially to those who KNOW they don’t deserve it, the HUMBLE.
Romans 8:1-4 "Therefore THERE IS NOW NO CONDEMNATION for those who are IN CHRIST JESUS. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus HAS SET YOU FREE from the law of sin and of death. For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, GOD DID: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, HE CONDEMNED SIN IN THE FLESH, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT."
You heard me right. The Grace OF GOD, THE Grace from the creator of the entire universe and everything in it, has given us HIS very own favor - ALL of it. This is the supernatural FAVOR of God resting upon us, and it’s IN us, and it’s FOR us. And notice, it’s ALL past tense, meaning it’s been done and can’t be undone. That’s THE Grace Awakening.
Romans 8:14-17 "For ALL WHO ARE being led by the Spirit of God, THESE ARE THE sons of God. For YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but YOU HAVE RECEIVED a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit Himself testifies WITH OUR SPIRIT that we are children of God, and if children, HEIRS ALSO, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him so that WE MAY ALSO BE glorified with Him."
God has a nature and a character, and He gave it to us. He made us. We are made in His image, and He gave us purpose and a mission. We can trust Him absolutely. Here’s how it works… God gives GREATER Grace to the HUMBLE (there can be no pride). But because it’s HIS favor, we can’t earn it. It’s always FREE. We can only RECEIVE it.
James 4:6 "But He GIVES A GREATER GRACE. Therefore it says, “God is opposed to the proud, but gives GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.”
THE Grace Awakening is to know God as our Father (truly seeing and experiencing Him as Father), walking with HIM always, and talking to Him face-to-face.
1 Peter 5:5 "You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE."
THE Grace Awakening is always being assured that Jesus is our only answer. Were you concerned about the sun coming up today? I mean, last night, were you up all night worrying about whether the sun would shine today? Of course not. Jesus is like the sun, only much better.
Romans 8:28-31 "And we know THAT GOD CAUSES all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those WHO ARE CALLED according to HIS PURPOSE. For those whom HE FOREKNEW (before the world was), He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son (predestined before the world was), so that He would be the firstborn AMONG MANY BRETHREN; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? IF GOD IS FOR US, WHO IS AGAINST US?"
THE Grace Awakening is KNOWING that EVERYTHING we could ever need or want or desire has already been provided to us IN CHRIST; it’s a knowing deep in our heart that the God of all GRACE has come AND restored all things AND He has fully equipped us in advance to RECEIVE IT and carry it out. He commands us to enjoy it AND share it with one another. That’s THE Grace Awakening.
1 Corinthians 13:12 "For now we see in a mirror dimly, BUT THEN face to face; now I know in part, but then I WILL KNOW FULLY just as I ALSO HAVE BEEN fully known."
THE Grace Awakening is not just “seeing” God’s plans and His BLUEPRINTS, but SEEING His WILL be carried out; worked out in us and through us. God has given us HIS land flowing with milk and honey, NOW receive it in Jesus' name.
Isaiah 60:21 "Then ALL YOUR PEOPLE will be righteous; They WILL POSSESS THE LAND forever, The branch of MY PLANTING, The work of MY HANDS, That I may be glorified."
THE Grace Awakening is knowing that God HAS redeemed us and He HAS ALREADY led us out of Egypt, and WE’VE BEEN through the wilderness, and now WE HAVE entered HIS promised land that flows with milk and honey, already provided.
Matthew 7:24-27 "Therefore EVERYONE who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. EVERYONE who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”
What’s more, God has given us His favor, wisdom, strength, power, and might to fulfill HIS BLUEPRINTS, which are to rebuild and restore HIS Kingdom on earth.
Romans 8:31 "What then shall we say to these things? IF GOD IS FOR US, who is against us?"
These Heaven-based BLUEPRINTS were created BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD so that we would walk in them NOW. That’s THE Grace Awakening.
Ephesians 1:4 "just as HE CHOSE US in Him BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, that WE WOULD BE holy and blameless BEFORE HIM. In love."
Grace WAS BEFORE the foundation of the world. You have to get this. God has a plan, and you are in it. We are His only plan. Like the mighty Oak Tree, which started out as SEED, we are Christ’s seed. He has watered us and nurtured us by His Grace, and now it’s time for us to possess the land and thrive as we shine forth God’s goodness AND He produces tangible fruit through us. His plan of Grace was created and launched before HE built or created ANYTHING. Grace came first.
Ezekiel 28:26 "They will live in it securely; and THEY WILL BUILD HOUSES, plant vineyards and live securely when I execute judgments upon all who scorn them round about them. THEN THEY WILL KNOW that I am the Lord their God.”
Grace has always been, and will always be. Grace is the character of God and it reflects His heart of PURE LOVE.
1 Peter 1:20 "For HE WAS FOREKNOWN BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, but has appeared in these last times for the sake of you.”
Before the Father created us, He addressed and solved, and answered every problem, issue, or concern we could ever encounter. He also gave us THE choice, either to RECEIVE His manifold gifts of Grace or to reject them and Him (and reject His Father) and attempt to “make it on our own,” apart from Grace.
John 5:6 “When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He *said to him, “Do you wish to get well?”
God desires us to choose Him, but He won’t force us. He loves us so much, He’ll let us go out on our own. His heart is demonstrated through the Father of the prodigal son.
Luke 15:20 “So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.”
John 17:24 "Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for You loved Me before the foundation of the world."
We have a clean conscious sprinkled with His Blood and a High Priest and God has accepted us and approved us through Him forever. Saved by Grace, past tense. We are fully cleansed, made perfect, without spot or wrinkle.
Hebrews 4:15 "Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin."
Hebrews 10:2 “Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins?
Hebrews 12:24 “and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.”
In THE Kingdom of His Grace, there is no guilt, shame, or condemnation - it’s all gone, and the records have been erased and destroyed.
Romans 8:1 “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
By His Stripe, we HAVE BEEN HEALED.
1 Peter 2:24 "and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed."
We’ve been healed! Past tense! Grace is God’s character and His heart. He provided for our every need before He created us. Grace describes His absolute goodness and the overflow of love for us, His children. He did it all!
Isaiah 53:5 "But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed."
Luke 22:19 "And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
God’s absolute goodness includes HIS JOY, which empowers us to SEE His finished work of victory in the supernatural. Grace is absolutely supernatural, but it’s pulled into the natural as it manifests as a provision or solution, like healing. The only thing left to do is enjoy Him, and He’s provided for that too when He gave us His joy!
2 Corinthians 13:11 "Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you."
John 15:11 "These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full."
Since before the beginning, we were destined to Reign with Jesus through Grace. We are co-heirs of His Grace; having been made ONE, we now share in the Unity of the faith in ONE new man, Christ.
Romans 5:17 "For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ."
Romans 5:21 "so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Ephesians 4:5 “one Lord, one faith, one baptism,”
Ephesians 4:13 "until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ."
Remember, we have been given the fullness of Christ! That mean His Grace showed up because our weaknesses. THE Grace Awakening is to embrace our weaknesses as launching pads for His strength. Grace grows and thrives through our weaknesses and IN our weakness. Like a fish in water, Grace love’s weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9 “And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.”
God’s Kingdom ways are far different from our ways. We are absolutely clueless without Grace. Totally incompetent and unable to save ourselves from calamity. The good news is that God only gives Grace to the humble. Without humility, there’s no room for His Grace. Grace is made available to the prideful, but won’t flow in the presence of pride or self-righteousness.
Romans 1:17 “For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”
Romans 3:21-22 “But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction;”
THE Grace Awakening is God’s respect for our decision to live under God’s Grace and full provision, or to live by our own efforts and under our own provisions.
Romans 10:3 "For not knowing about God’s righteousness and seeking to establish their own, they did not subject themselves to the righteousness of God."
Matthew 25:32 “All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats;
Matthew 7:23 “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’ “
Jesus overcame the world, and we reign with Him under Grace. As such, we are witnessing our Heavenly Father fulfilling His covenant with Jesus and us and He’s placing ALL HIS enemies under our feet, including all shame and all doubt and all strife and unbelief and all disappointment and all sickness and all disease.
1 Corinthians 15:25 "For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet."
THE Grace Awakening is God establishing HIS Kingdom ON EARTH in the next decade as He calls forth those IN CHRIST to manifest the fullness of God’s Glory, which is HIS ABSOLUTE GOODNESS.
We believe God is USING us and His technology to help establish HEAVEN on EARTH (community and unity) through Grace by Faith. All businesses will be trustworthy, honest, and transparent and will operate with integrity at all times.
Here’s a single excerpt from the blueprint!
2 Peter 1:10-21 "Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you. Therefore, I will always be ready to remind you of these things, even though you already know them, and have been established in the truth which is present with you. I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder, knowing that the laying aside of my earthly dwelling is imminent, as also our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me. And I will also be diligent that at any time after my departure you will be able to call these things to mind. For we did not follow cleverly devised tales when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For when He received honor and glory from God the Father, such an utterance as this was made to Him by the Majestic Glory, “This is My beloved Son with whom I am well-pleased”— and we ourselves heard this utterance made from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. So we have the prophetic word made more sure, to which you do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star arises in your hearts. But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
