Beloved, when i gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 1:3 KJV

Our misunderstanding of grace started when we begin to attach some benefit to holiness and righteous living. No earthly father pays his son for being good.
So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, we are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do. Mat17:7 KJV
God does not owe any thank you to anyone for living right neither is there any specialty to anyone that is holy. It’s our responsibility, our calling, our duty etc maybe I have to remained us our calling as humans:
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it… Gen 2:28 KJV
Replenish means: To refill, to renew, to complete, to supply fully…
If you hired workers/servants to work on a farm and they got tired even when there was an agreement before they got hired and you decided to buy machines and engines to assist them. As owner tell yourself what is expected of this servants?
Every authentic manual of any electronic tells you what can keep it going and what can reduce its effectiveness. That’s manual’s work.
If someone gives you a car and transfer its ownership to you shouldn’t there be boldness in driving the car? Yet don’t you check the engine oil, radiators, break oil etc to see if the car is ok? That you are checking the engine oil, radiator etc does it mean you are conscious of accident (sin)? Please be answering the questions from a sincere heart. If God gives you a car (grace) is it God (grace) that will be checking the oil usage for you again? Is it a sin that God provides car for us to make life comfortable for us? Grace is the car, the holyspirit is your driver, you are the physical man in charge. What the grace teaching lacks is maintenance of the car. God said I will keep you from falling and uphold your faith but not the maintenance.
The Story of the Ten Virgins
Everyone was sleeping they all were sleeping for Christ sake and the master shows up suddenly and immediately he called five wise virgin and other five foolish virgin. I screamed Lord they all were sleeping they all Lord and the Lord said I never complained about their sleeping I only meant those who had oil in their lamps. Mat 25:1-13 KJV
Buy the truth and sell it not Prov 23:23 KJV
Ho, everyone that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy and eat; yea, come buy wine and milk without money and without price Isa55:1 KJV
Is it grace that will buy wine gene, milk gene, truth gene or you as a Christian?
It takes the foolishness of a driver for his engine oil to finish also no generator engine petrol finish without giving its owner a sign. The Lord didn’t allow this foolish virgin not because they slept off rather for lacking maintenance ability of what he gave them.
The unproductive tree Luk13:6-9
If you come with openness of heart this evening Jesus will teach you mysteries I mean openness indeed concerning grace.
This was the parable of an unproductive tree whose owner is planning to cut down and the dresser asked for extension.
Jesus (grace) is like the dresser, God is like the owner, you are like the tree. If grace (Jesus) told God he will dig you, dung you and do everything to ensure your productivity, who do you think should bear fruit? Jesus or you?
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Mat 11:28 KJV
Jesus said he will dig and dung which simply means grace came to remove hindrances to our effective walk and work with the Lord and that’s was what Hebrews was speaking about and many so called fake grace teachers turned into something else.
If your father is paying your school fees, feeding and every fees for you is it not for you to concentrate and focus on one thing? But if he didn’t don’t you think that is a burden or hindrances to your success? If she goes to prostitution, stealing and all sorts of immorality just to pay your school fee don’t you think your academic performance will be affected? But if paid for you are expected to perform well huh? What of if such a child was cut cheating in the exam hall or wasn’t serious with his studies and was sent away by the school is it the father’s fault?
What await believers?
Grace never removes our callings “Wherefore brethren give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall” 2pet1:10 KJV in the vineyard and that is where the judgment of God lies for believer while unbelievers will be judge on neglecting the gift of God. God judges believers to the works in the vineyard not for the sins for our sins has been cleared off by Jesus but i tell you unless you work faithfully there is no rest. Thats the truth you must know today.
Quote: Freedom is expensive than slavery. What makes freedom expensive? Think deeply on this before fake messages on grace will end you in hell. Grace is meant for a high performance not what you play with or entice your members on so they can feel good. Huh Christians are playing with a high calling that attract a serious punishment. I tell you the truth new testament is expensive if you care to see the real pictures.
The sudden change
Gone are the days when brother Gbile akanni we tell us how they prayed in the cold weather for hours, how they go to God in long prayers for God to reveal the heart of the writers of the scriptures. Gone are the days when we sat with Rev Olusola Areogun when you feel something like filthiness fallen off your body and garment is covering you, we could feel it. Gone are the days when men of God like bishop oyedepo tells us how they went on 3days fasting on Acts of the Apostles seeking God’s face. Gone are the days when men of God are concern if God did not move in a meeting or people’s life didn’t change and they go to God in prayers and humbleness of heart. Gone are those days when Papa Hagin tells us how they labour in words for hours haa “what has Christianity turn to?” They say Pst E.A Adeboye is old fashion, why is Pst kumuyi preaching holiness, they say C.A.C and mountain of fire prayer points are too much and now it’s grace season and we have become irresponsible servants and our hearts is as cold as sea ice, they say you don’t need to do anything for the moves of God if God will work he will work you just be looking, the Lord’s flock dies, are buffeted, confuse and life is sapping strength in them and shepherds are busy sharing rhema they will say death is a gain to a believer of less than 50, no one goes to God and cry for answers anymore. They say God has ears too much prayer is bad just 5min-10min is ok when storms now come we say God is far from us, have you forgotten when you turn your father (God) to your boyfriend that you call 5min – 10min and God gave you an answer of 5min response you are complaining, when you turn to master and refuse to be a servant that joyfully serves in the household of God. What do we call God? A dummy huh? No no noo he is a father and a rewarder of those that diligently seek him.
I Joseph sam says I will uphold to the messages of the fathers, I stick to the old rugged cross, my garment will remain clean as I march to the beautiful gate of zion.
And now brethren I commend you to God and to the word of his grace which is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance among all them which are satisfied. Amen
