What is “The Grace of God?” by Bill Johnson

WHAT IS THE GRACE OF GOD

Audio Show @ Divinely Inspired Scriptures

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the “gift”.
The apostate church out of the Protestant Reformation through the teachings of Calvin and Luther subtly perverted the word “grace”, just as they perverted the Sovereignty of God. Why did they teach this heresy? So they could live in sin and still be counted righteous before God. The true definition of “grace” is the power of God, not the unmerited favor of God “IE” the gift of God………….The word “Gift” means propitious unmerited favor. GRACE means HIS power that is imparted by the Holy Spirit. This unmerited favor, or gift of God, is the power of God, not of man’s own power lest he should boast…

We are saved by grace “the power of God” through faith….meaning; We through faith have the “gift” of the power of God to live righteously Titus 2-11,12..This power of God >“IE” the “grace” is only bestowed by the means of a GIFT “unmerited favor” after repentance..

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God (GRACE OF GOD) unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus Christ, full of grace (the power of God) and truth
The false understanding of grace has put the congregations to sleep, as it produces the bad fruit of a passive faith…the devils faith

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace (the power of God) are ye saved through faith (obedience and belief from the heart); and that not of yourselves (not of the power of our own will): it is the “gift” (the “unmerited favor” of God)

Grace “IE” The power of God> is the gift “IE” the unmerited favor of God. The power to overcome sin, this is the same grace that Christ had…….when one falls from grace, they fall from the power of God by succumbing to temptation…

Faith, belief, and obedience, are all the same, they are inseparable, can’t have one without the other, lest of be the faith of devils, which manifest the works of disobedience..

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God (the power 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; This is the grace of God, which is the power of God> that brings salvation.

the false prophets teach that grace is unmerited favor…I ask; was Jesus full of “unmerited favor”? Was Jesus not worthy, nay may God forbid…No, HE was full of the power of God to overcome sin and this is a gift of God. Yes HE was full of Gods mercy as well, for God is assuredly most merciful towards repented sinners, even the angels in heaven rejoice over one repented sinner, not a sinner who remains a willful sinner. For these are they that despise the law and trample underfoot the blood atonement of Christ in Hebrews ch 10..

Luke 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

sin is the transgression of the law, and all the law can do is convict one of sin, only the power of God “grace” can overcome sin…grace is the divine influence upon the heart, that brings about a righteous lifestyle that opposes sin at every opportunity. Rebuke the devil and he will flea…this is the power of God..

Grace is (the power of God), this is the “gift” (unmerited favour) bestowed upon repented sinners, they receive the power of God in their lives…the gift is the unmerited favor, not the grace..this was the mystery the angels could not understand how it would work, how the believer would receive this power of God in their lives…Jesus Christ is come in the flesh..
There is only one gospel that the apostle Paul taught; the gospel of salvation Romans 1:16 , Ephesians 1:13>the gospel of grace> Acts 20:24, which is the gospel of the kingdom> Matthew 4:23, Matthew 9:35, Matthew 24:14, Mark 1:14…which is the gospel of Christ>Mark 1:1, Romans 2:16, Romans 15:29, 1 Corinthians 9:12, 2 Corinthians 2:12, 2 Corinthians 4:4, 2 Corinthians 9:13, 2 Corinthians 10:14, Galatians 1:7, 1 Thessalonians 3:2, 2 Thessalonians 1:8.

Galatians 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: the false teaching of “grace” today as being UNMERITED FAVOUR is another gospel.

Romans 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God (the GRACE OF GOD) unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
My grace (power) is sufficient, said God to Paul.

  1. Thee substance of the free gift is God’s grace…This is what Peter spoke of in Acts 2-38, you shall receive the free gift of the Holy Ghost, (the Divine influence upon the heart, through the power of the Holy Ghost), teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; this is the grace of God, the substance of the free gift..

    37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, (((what shall we do?)))

    38 Then Peter said unto them, (((Repent))), and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift (unmerited favour) of the Holy Ghost.

    The substance of the gift is the power of God via the person of the Holy Ghost>John 1-4, this is Jesus Christ “is come” in the flesh 1 John 1-3….The power of God living in the flesh temple of the believer…

    be blessed bill

  2. the church today, that is built upon Calvin and Luther’s teachings, will say that this is a works salvation. Why? Because they understand not the true meaning of GRACE. The only way to accesses this grace of God is through the door of repentance. Jesus stands at the door knocking, calling us out of Babylon unto the door of repentance, then HE will come in and sup (Rev 3-20)…While seeking such power, men will foolishly look for many alternative doors by way of self inventive means to boast in, this is the vain power of a man seeking to lassoooooo the Holy Ghost with a rope…(the Pecos Bill method)…remember; it is not of man’s works lest any man should boast, but rather it is of God’s grace, the power of God, the works of God…

  3. Dan Haffke says:

    Bill, I write this not to debate or cause discord or in anyway seek dis-unity. I followed your teachings from the on-set of WW, somewhere along the line my thinking changed. But, I know your sincerity, and your scholarship, and I have a question, believing you will answer. Can a literal eternal hell, with all the trimmings of torment, be found in the texts of the New Testament. I am not baiting you, and give my word that I will not seek to correct or prove anything, but I would like to have your full understanding of this, because I am trying to work-out some bugs in my own understanding of scripture. I am familiar with 6, 7, 8, purified seven times, and so forth. It’s been a long time and my journey has taken me to distant lands, and I just wanted your take. Thanks brother. Dan

    • Please excuse me Dan, I had not checked the recent posts and taken notice of your question until tonight, I should like to respond to this when i am more rested, possibly tomorrow…briefly, I believe eternal torment is existing with out having ones sins forgiven by the blood of the Lamb…I will expound on this more in a post tomorrow…grace and truth bill

  4. Dan, I think that the true description is given one time by Jesus Himself in Luke 16….The man in hell having been tormented by his unbelief and unforgiven sin was asking for a drop of life in the Spirit, he was asking for mercy, but father Abraham said their was nothing he could do about it because they were separated…..Its man alone who separates himself from God, God never indented for this, nor does HE desire it to be so, but unrepented man desires it to be so. God takes no pleasure in the destruction of the wicked…..This is the only description of hell given in scripture and it is given by none other than Jesus the 100% prophet….eternal separation from God can mean nothing else but torment…Its hard to refute Like 16 its a point blank didactic teaching…Johns gospel says; There is one resurrection it is of the just to life, and the unjust to damnation eternal..eternal can not have two different meanings.This is how I understand it Dan…29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. i would do a scripture study on the word damnation and how it is defined, does it mean that the soul is destroyed and never to exist again?

    This is the judgement that was spoken of in John 5-29 (-Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into (everlasting punishment): but the righteous into (life eternal) everlasting & eternal are the same greek word>aiōnios……………………. one has to ask does this mean that they are destroyed and never to exist everlasting….or does it mean that one is eternaly seperated from God,,,,When not speaking of natural death of the physical body, death in the scriptures means seperated from God, it appears that the soul never dies but remains seperated from God..the spirit retuns to God who gave it (the breath of life) breathed into every man who becomes a living soul..”The rich” ( the proud) man had a soul (an existance) but no “spirit” (life), while Lasuras had both his soul and his spirit joined together in Abrahams bosum…

  5. Jesus told the Pharisees that if they did not repent and believe that they would die in their sins….Meaning when they physically died they would remain unwashed of their sins and a continued separation from God forever,,,,,,,,,,,,Jesus spoke warnings of hell fire continually all through his ministry,,,,it must be a pretty bad state of affairs for Jesus to have warned against it so fervently

  6. Dear Mr. Johnson,
    How wonderful to see teachings on the power of Grace (Titus 2:11-12) to deliver us from sin’s power (Romans 6 and all over the NT).

    If you ever have 30 minutes to spare, might you please consider viewing one teaching from a new YouTube channel called “BornAgainBride”? I believe the Father has given us the same “doctrine” (the “doctrine of Christ”). While I am not a very good public speaker, I am very sincere and devoted like you to Christ’s teachings on how He and His sacrifice have saved us FROM (out of) our sins. Here is the weblink if you are ever able. http://www.youtube.com/user/BornAgainBride

    I found your website by trying to find Brother Rober and the Narrow Way, or the Remnant Cafe. Do you happen to know how I could contact Brother Robert? I used to follow his ministry prior to my husband and I being sent out for 6 years. Thank you if you are able to give me a lead.

    Respectfully,
    Sarah Jeremiah

  7. dear Sarah, very pleased to make your acquaintance, i will most defiantly take the time to view this video…

    I also have an audio study on my website concerning the understanding of Gods grace, Just in case you might not have been aware of it…

    .the email that I had for Robert no longer works, and his web-site is down. His father passed away recently, we need to be praying for brother Robert.. I was able to load about 30 of his audios on my site, by putting 2 studies into each audio,. I do know of one or two people who may have a contact for him…Roberts mailing address is on this web page link located at the bottom of the page,,,,,,,,be blessed always bill

    • Sarah Jeremiah says:

      Dear Pastor Johnson,   Thank you so much for your reply and the article on Grace!  I loved it!  Although WWO/BornAgainBride teaches Paul’s definition of grace as in Titus 2 as well, I just never saw it phrased so well as you did in your article.  I love how you reveal how Christ walked in that Grace/Power (full of Grace and Truth).  Thank you so much!!!   I just started a new job today after being, essentially, out of the regular work force for almost 10 years, so I will have to wait till next weekend to mine your website. I hope you have some writings since I am probably better at reading than hearing unless in my car (have audio CD Bible). This weekend I will be moving into my new apartment (just relocated to SC from PA after the Father got me this job).   Thank you also for the link to Brother Robert’s (formerly of the Narrow Way) web page, and I will try to write him an ordinary letter and also am praying for him.    Respectfully, Sarah

      ________________________________

    • Hi again, Mr. Johnson, I’m the lady who asked you if you knew how to reach Brother Robert of Narrow Way Ministries. I did go to his old website link you sent me but his address is no longer there. Any chance you might have another link? If not, please forgive me for bothering you once again. Thank you so much again for your time. Respectfully, Sarah Jeremiah

  8. Steve says:

    Hi Bill,
    As far as I understand, both Calvin and Luther (as did Spurgeon and hundreds of others, for that matter) taught the doctrine of the Total Depravity of Man as a backdrop to the doctrine of the Grace and the doctrine of Regeneration as part of the doctrine of the Grace. With that in mind, I don’t believe you are correct in labeling them either apostate or false teachers.

    Also, the grace mentioned in Titus 2, Cannot be taken out of context. Paul is speaking to Titus who was having a few “issues” with the people he ministered to. As you will note then, vs 11-15 are a correction and guidance and the grace that is spoken of, is Christ himself (vs 11).

    On the other thing, I’ll agree with you that today’s common definition of Grace (unmerited favor) is awful but only in that it falls so far short of what the bible really conveys. Grace is about God’s mercy, compassion and love bestowed upon His enemies, who deserve nothing but judgement, wrath and condemnation.

    Regards,
    Steve

  9. Hello Steve,
    Luther said Jesus was the most vial of all sinners….Calvin went completely mad in his delusions, the anabatists cold see that their doctrines like the RCC was producing fasle converts

    Luther’s doctrine is very crafty an subtle: He is famous for saying that you receive forgiveness of sins through “faith alone”. First he miss-understands what faith is, then says that by believing the words spoken during the sacrament is how sins are forgiven.. By the creed in his Little Catechism he taught that through the ceremony of the sacrament God pours out the forgiveness of sins. He is even more crafty than the RCC in his use of deceptive language : One might almost be tempted to believe, based on Luther’s words about “believing,” that he is saying that a person is forgiven, or justified, by faith, or simple intellectual belief (which is wrong anyway). Yet, the truth is revealed through examination of context: Luther is saying that your sins are forgiven IN the sacrament (“Through these words we receive forgiveness of sins, life and salvation in this sacrament”).These words are the main thing IN THIS SACRAMENT CEREMONY….. Based on Luther’s statement of ” we are saved by faith alone” would be useless were it not for the sacrament ceremony itself. Therefore, Luther does not really believe that it is your faith, your belief alone that is important, but the sacrament itself. In reality he is teaching against what he professes to believe,,,Luther is actually teaching faith plus works, and the works he is preaching are of the kind of works the apostle Paul so strongly opposed, that being “religious works”,,,both of these men approved persecution, Calvin to a greater degree. Becase they were hung up protesting they missd the gospel. They were protesters of the RCC rather then followers of Christ, Satan took advantage of that and they became liken to whom they were protesting, this is the difference between Luther and Tyndale,,,,Tyndale was a ture man of God, Luther was a poser.

    I suggest you read his little Catechism Steve,,,,,,the truth was not in him, and Calvin was completely
    lost in his own delusions,as was their mentor Augustine…Titus 2-11 is as simple as it gets. These men both taught the lie of getting saved in your sins, the lie of of infant baptism, the lie of transfered righteosness…the born ib sin lie, the saved in your sins lie, the live in you sins lie,
    the lie of eternal security, and made the gospel of none effect.; T…. these 2 false prophets, i suggest you study up on them by reading their own words and doctrine…They both taught the gospel in reverse..almost all of the key componets to the doctrine of salvation they had in error..

    grace and truth bill

  10. I might add also, that Luther, who was at odds with Tyndale over this issue of faith, among many other false beliefs he held, such as, man has no freewill. Luther also disagreed with Tyndale over the legitimacy of the epistle of James, and the book of Hebrews, as he sought to have them both removed. Why?> because Luther’s new found knowledge of “faith alone” that he said was so glorious a discovery, while in reality it was a deception placed in his mind by Satan…The book of James was openly rebuking his new found faith alone discovery…The scriptures never say faith alone, but they do teach of a working faith proven by deeds, Titus 2-11,12.Luther now believed he could live in his sin and still be saved…this was the beginning of eternal security during the Reformation, OSAS. That was the discovery which was so glorious in the mind of Luther. Martin Luther’s background was that of a zealous religious monk under the RCC system. It is said and written of him that at times he would fast for three days in a row without eating at all. Other times he would cast off the blankets and nearly froze himself to death. Luther become obsessed with his enemies in the RCC; feeling oppressed by that system he began to protest the system more than seeking the truth, this was the main difference between Tyndale and Luther. Tyndale did much battle with the RCC, but he did not let it overtake him like it did Luther.
    ‘I was a good monk, and I kept the rule of my order so strictly that I may say that if ever a monk got to heaven by his monkery it was I. All my brothers in the monastery who knew me will bear me out. If I had kept on any longer, I should have killed myself with vigils, prayers, reading and other work.’
    Luther saw justification by “faith alone” and determined that good works were not necessary for Christian salvation. The problem with this; is that apostle James ‘epistle didactically teaches that an intellectual faith alone is not sufficient for salvation, but faith must result in a changed behavior, and a new life in Christ. The result was that Martin Luther began to question whether the epistle of James should even be in the NT. His conclusion was that the origin of the book was very hazy and without substance–like something made of straw. His comment “a right strawy epistle” was intended to convey that sense of vague uncertainty. Luther mis-interpreted the epistle of Paul to the Romans. He saw a contradiction with the epistle James, where in reality there was none. Out of this background, he then was opposed to anything he interpreted as teaching works for salvation as in his mind it contradicted the gospel of salvation by grace, this became the backbone of the Reformation and its false doctrines.
    Most all of the Reformation Theology is flawed because of not understanding the simple biblical definition of the words “grace & faith”. . Many today have come out and have been raked over the coals by these false religious systems, and they’re licensed fleshly mediators, like Luther was abused also, but we cannot make that our focus because the devil will take advantage of that, this is what Paul was speaking about when he said we are not to be ignorant of the devils devices. If we read in context; Paul was speaking specifically in that chapter about the Satanic stronghold of bitterness and resentment 2 Cor.:2-11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. My objective is not do rail or condemn Luther, but discern the matter from what writings and evidence that are available. We are to discern all things and condemn no one.
    It was much more difficult to wrestle with the writings of James than it was with the sometimes difficult to understand writings of Paul..2 Peter 3…..The epistle of James is in your face concerning this matter of a saving faith, opposing a devils faith….What good is faith without works said James>Be ye DOERS of the word and NOT HEARERS ONLY……

  11. Martin Luther, the father of the Reformation movement, (known as, Reformed theology) taught that the prophets of the OT prophesied, “that Christ should become the greatest transgressor, murderer, adulterer, thief, rebel, and blasphemer that ever was, or could be in the world.” To my knowledge, this was a new doctrine, having never been heard of before Luther’s revelation. How can someone who has studied scripture and was an alleged (sola-scrpitura) advocate or even entertain such a blasphemous thought? He claimed that the Lord lost his holiness and innocence at Calvary, and Jesus died as a sinful person (Luther on Galatians, Chapter 3:13, London Edition, 1838, pp. 213-215, as

    The apostle Paul writes in Hebrews 9-28, and declares that Christ will “appear a second time, apart from sin”. and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation,. This verse contradicts the implication that Jesus at the time of his death became a sinful person that the Father could not look upon. If Jesus would have died in sin, He could not possibly return a second time apart from sin. Hebrews 4-15 declares that the Savior was “without sin”……. In Him there is no sin, He was blameless and a spotless sacrifice…

    The reason they taught this false doctrine is so they could say that all their sins where transfered to Christ, and Christ righteousness was some how mysticaly transfered to them, and this is what they then wanted to believe grace was….This false doctrine has spread everywhere today..

    There was no transfer of the sins of the people to the animal sacrifice, that’s scape goat theology, neither is there a transfer of our sins to Christ, nor is Christ’s righteous somehow magically transferred to us, as they like to speak with great swelling words “a forensic thing” .That is all a lie of the devil. By the grace of God, we are now the living sacrifice, as we die to sin, buried in HIS baptism, and rise anew creature in the Spirit, walking in the newness of life (Born again). The door is repentance before the mercy seat of God; there is no other way to salvation. God even said this in Gen 3-22…. Anything else is liken to a thief and a robber seeking to climb back another way. God placed a cherub there with a flaming sword for all those who seek to enter the kingdom by a different way. Christ said; I AM the WAY, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father except by me….

    Man cannot invent a new doctrine of easy graceism and then enter the kingdom, he must be wearing the right (righteous) garment of godliness> they can’t crash the wedding supper like the thief of Sardis wearing the wrong garment, with a hoody cloak while still living in sin. The easy grace gospel of Billy Graham and the others are teaching that you can most certainly enter the kingdom in your sin, and wearing not a garment of HIS righteousness, but that’s ok, because you are mystically being covered (cloaked) by HIS righteousness, claiming that Christ’s righteousness has been somehow transferred to you. This is a huge lie, and is sending all those follow after and believe this package deal of easy graceism into deep deception.
    The book of Hebrews calls it the new and living way> Christ Jesus living in the temple of the believer, not mystically cloaking you so God can’t see your sin, these are just more lies from the likes of John Piper, John McCarther, Billy Graham, RCC, Ed Young, Rick Warren, and thousand more blind guides deceiving you. It don’t matter, the wolves are on both sides of the fence, rather they be Calvinist or Evangelical, they most all teach this same lie of being cloaked in Christ’s righteousness. It’s of the devil himself. This false way does not bring about a newness of life which then changes a man inwardly, but rather it is an unprofitable outward works of religion> this is why Paul said in Eph, 2,8,9 “not by works” meaning; not the works of man and his outward appearance of religious righteousness and foolish sacraments that are all for not…The package deal that they have dreamed up is of religious works that allows the followers to live in their sin and still be saved. These are the filthy dreamers that Jude warned of and the false prophet dreamers Moses warned of in Deut. 13 and at the end of Deut. 18.

  12. To willfully sin, is continuing to sin presumptuously and believe one is eternally saved. This is the error of the wicked that Peter warned of.

    These mighty men of renown come preaching with great swelling words of confusion and vanity like>(expedite, vicarious sacrifice, forensically covered, positionaly righteous etc.) these liars make Christ the victim of God’s wrath. Nay may God forbid!!! No one is punished for the sins of someone else. The wrath of God has not been abated by the atonement. The wrath of Gods is still upon the unrepented willful sinner. Christ did not take our place on the Cross, we are freed from sin, not free to sin…Sin is not transferred to HIM, HE was a sin offering without spot. Amen!
    The victim is not punished for the sins of someone else. God did not pour out his wrath upon Jesus, and no exchange took place at the cross>the truth blows their false gospel of transferred righteousness to smithereens, because it’s all vanity…..The truth is, the cross provided a way of salvation to those who would diligently seek God through the door of repentance…Paul said not a repentance that is to be regretted, but a godly repentance (Hebrews 6).. All else he said is a worldly sorrow of repentance that works death> this formula is expressed in their package deal {by a simple confession, repeating some words, or a sinners prayer etc.}. ..Approaching God in the wrong manner will bring about no forgiveness of sin, no matter how good these false prophet make your flesh feel…

    To have a false understanding of repentance, the blood atonement of Christ’s and how it’s applied through the door of true repentance and faith is going to result in one’s eternal destiny of heaven or hell. This has to be preached properly so the congregations can find access to the mercy seat of Christ. Jesus warned of a greater damnation for those who would block others from entering the kingdom by teaching a false gospel. God offered conditions to salvation; it’s not arbitrary like they would have you believe…This is why holiness preachers who would preach the whole council of God, as Paul said; the goodness and severity of God. These types of good preachers are very unpopular today and are up for a tare and feathering by the presumably anointed board of directors in the Herod Pharisee system…Just to be clear, this is not a sinless perfection doctrine I’m advocating, because that is an error and false teaching too. I’m talking about a lifestyle of presumptuous sin. When the sin stops, then you grow as babes who desire the pure milk of the word.

    God did not allow for us to pick a doctrine of denomination that suits our carnal beliefs, and then decide how we want to approach God while making our own decisions about sin and forgiveness. God loved us enough to save us, but God is in need of nothing, especially man’s own inventive ways of saving himself. The false prophet locusts out of the bottomless pit are liken to the sons of Aaron playing with strange fire. Ouch!> that didn’t work out very well for them. Why? Because God told them how to approach HIM, and they violated that ordinance. Same thing today with these false prophets beholding strange fire, approaching God by way of their own terms and conditions…He tells us in the scriptures how to access HIS grace, that being through the door of repentance at the mercy seat and the holy of hollies, to present our bodies as a living sacrifice blameless in spirit, soul, and body,>dying to the lusts of the flesh, buried with HIM in the baptism of repentance, and partaking in HIS Resurrection and walking in the newness of life….

  13. Y.E. says:

    Dear Bill,
    The Amplified describes grace in brackets as unmerited favour and blessing. Strong concordance shows a similar meaning for the Greek word “charis”.
    What is your source for stating the true and intended meaning is “power of God”?
    Y.E.

  14. DIS says:

    Greetings Y.E……… study every time the word “grace” is used in scripture, and then let the scriptures divine the word for… Don’t rely on concordances…The bible is its own dictionary…….. be blessed in His word, Bill

  15. I don’t know if this helps, but Paul the Apostle defined grace in Titus 2:11-12 as “teaches us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts, and to live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world.
