ONLY by GRACE are we SAVED

 

Psalm 25:6

King James Version

6 Remember, O Lord, 

thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; 

for they have been ever of old.


Were it not for GOD's LOVE, His TENDER MERCIES, His GRACE, His LOVINGKINDNESS, we would have perished long ago.

In case you think you can stretch GOD's patience, please don't.

Only by GRACE are we saved.

Ephesians 2:8-9

King James Version

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; 

and that not of yourselves: 

it is the gift of God:

9 Not of works, 

lest any man should boast.


We brought nothing into the world.

1 Timothy 6:7

King James Version

7 For we brought nothing into this world, 

and it is certain we can carry nothing out.


Without JESUS, we can do nothing.

John 15:5

King James Version

5 I am the vine, 

ye are the branches: 

He that abideth in me, 

and I in him, 

the same bringeth forth much fruit: 

for without me ye can do nothing.


Only through the Restrainer -- the HOLY SPIRIT -- is the antichrist not yet revealed.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-7

King James Version

6 And now ye know what withholdeth 

that he might be revealed in his time.

7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: 

only he who now letteth will let, 

until he be taken out of the way.


As you can see, only by GOD's GRACE do we continue to exist.

Let us not fall into the same sin as the enemy.

The sin of pride.

When the day comes GOD sees fit to have His SON return, then you'll know GOD has had enough of our sin and disobedience.

Mark 13:32

King James Version

32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, 

no, not the angels which are in heaven, 

neither the Son, 

but the Father.


We are loved by GOD, but let us not mock His power.

GOD's will be done, in everything.

In JESUS, lies the LORD's GRACE.

 Titus 2:11-12

King James Version

11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation 

hath appeared to all men,

12 Teaching us that, 

denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, 

we should live soberly, 

righteously, 

and godly, 

in this present world;
