AMAZING GRACE

‘And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat…’ – Luke 22 vs 31

Hello Dearly Beloved. It’s always my joy bringing you the WORD of God. Now, in this topic, I want us to look into the fore-knowledge of God as it relates to HIS Grace and Mercy on our lives. Be Blessed.

The word ‘Fore-Knowledge’ simply means having knowledge about something long before it happens. Now, looking at our opening scripture, we see the fore-knowledge of the LORD in display. There, the LORD partly informs Peter about what he was to do against HIM, and right there began to forgive him and to pray for him before it happened. Let’s see the next verse;

But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.’ – Luke 22 vs 32 {KJV}

You see that? So right before Peter sinned, God’s fore-knowledge fore-saw it, and forgave it, long before it happened. Now, what’s this sin that Peter was to sin, it’s in the verse 34. I believe we all know it, but let’s look at it for the sake of emphasis;

‘And he said, I tell thee, Peter, the cock shall not crow this day, before that thou shalt thrice deny that thou knowest me.’ – Luke 22 vs 34 {KJV}

You see it? So we see from this happening that God knows everything, therefore, your sins, my sins are not a surprise to HIM. It should therefore mean that sin you committed last night is nothing new to HIM, He saw it already. – Selah

Now, just like Peter’s, knowing that the LORD already has knowledge of the sins you commit or are yet to commit, what has HE reached to do about it?

‘By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.’ – Hebrews 10 vs 1 4{KJV}

It says that by the offering of the LORD Jesus Christ on the Cross, we are sanctified (Cleansed, Washed, Made Righteous, Made Perfect and Forgiven) once and for all. O Hallelujah! Just like Peter, we have now receive forgiveness, not only for our present (known sins), but also for our future (unknown sins). The reason why Peter never agreed with the LORD that he was gonna deny HIM {Verse 33} was because that act was unknown to him in that it didn’t look like what could possibly happen, but to the LORD, it was known and very visible. But where did HIS love come in, where did the Amazing Grace manifest? He forgave it before it happened. - Selah

Beloved, that’s the same Grace extended to us, it says that we have been forgiven once and for all. Meaning, there is no sin you are ever gonna commit that the LORD hasn’t known about before, and lo, HE has forgiven it. Waow!

So when you sin as a result of weaknesses or ignorance, don’t be overcome with guilt and heaviness, no! It’s not necessary. Simply recognize and acknowledge that the LORD God knew about it before it came, acknowledge that wholly, and also recognize and acknowledge that HE forgave it before you acted it. Hence, be thankful to HIM and walk in PEACE. – Selah

Amazing Grace all the way…………

God Bless You.
