Quote: Unhealthy Extremes On the Right and the Left of Grace

1 Feb

The Grace Revolution

There is rapidly occurring across the earth, a division between Law teaching and Grace teaching.  God Himself is doing it.  Some of those who still preach a mixture of Law and Grace will first try to be diplomatic and reasonable but under the surface they will carry hatred and envy.  They will seek to disguise this in a form of godliness and theological reasoning but God in these days is going to expose the true state of their hearts.  This is not a gentle reformation.  This is a true revolution.

Those that do not understand this will be utterly dismayed at how quickly this revolution is about to spread.  In this revolution the gospel of Grace as revealed in the New Covenant will spread like wildfire.

There will be unhealthy extremes on the right and the left in reaction to this.  There will be voices that attempt to gain advantage by appearing to be balanced diplomats  calling for calm but God will sweep these self-appointed voices of reason aside and silence them swiftly.  Those with secure, pure hearts will steward this revolution, not panicking at the unhealthy extremes or trying to prematurely balance everything.

For you see, it is not the message of Grace that is causing the extremes or unbalance, but it is the result of an entrenched and deeply established legalism and man’s control surfacing because of the intensifying pressure of the Grace revolution.  This revolution will force the mask off every form and appearance of godliness that denies the power of the New Covenant.

This gospel revolution is not to be blamed for the ugliness that will appear in some.  It is simply forcing the true nature of legalism out into the open and stripping it of all its disguises so that even the naïve and deceived will see how truly hideous it’s face really is.  The camouflage of legalism is being removed so that it can no longer harass from hidden positions that have an appearance of godliness.

The people in these days who fearlessly embrace Grace and remain pure hearted and faithful, enduring hardship and refusing to be polluted by bitterness during persecution, will be partners with the Holy Spirit in seeing entire nations birthed into revival.

    “For you see, it is not the message of Grace that is causing the extremes or unbalance, but it is the result of an entrenched and deeply established legalism and man’s control surfacing because of the intensifying pressure of the Grace revolution.” Amen! So well stated here. This is what I’ve seen when people try to demonize the legitimate expression of this grace revolution. They aren’t refuting it with what the Bible actually says but with their deeply entrenched interpretation of what they think the Bible says. But God is on the move. His Kingdom is advancing!

    Thanks for posting this, bro! I may need to get the book and re-blog this later. We need to spread the word. Pure grace is actually contagious, it’s really GOOD news! 🙂

      We’re in for a great adventure… just keep our nose clean and our hearts intimate with Jesus… and don’t say and do dumb stuff about the process… that we’ll have to eat crow for later. Onward, Ho!!

        Amen. The primacy of everything must be abiding in the love of Christ which covers a multitude of sins,. which also means, even if we say something dumb, we show grace for that too, honoring and protecting rather than demonizing one another, and not taking ourselves too seriously. 🙂 These are truly exciting times to be alive!

    Reblogged this on In My Father's House and commented:
    Here’s a post from my friend, Mark Hendrickson, quoting Rob Rufus. A very good treatment of keeping balance in the current grace revolution. A worthy read.
