Someone commented on my blog and I want to show you again how wrong the "no works" proponents are.
I need to add that the "works" we do as Christians is only Christ "working" through us. It is a partnership. "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" Amos 3:3 and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; Isaiah 64:6 Jesus is the Lord OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS Jer 23:6, 33:16
Christ said we can do NOTHING without Him (John 15:5). Grace is God's life in us. And faith in this is us understanding the reality of that fact! We are saved by Grace through Faith. And that faith and grace is a gift from God. it's all the Lord's glory. But we can do as Johah did and run away from the Lord. Yes we can! But what happened to Jonah? He received a revelation of hell and he repented. "I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever:" Jonah 2:6
"The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." Rev 4:10, 11

Victory In Jesus
If you have never repented of your sins and been saved and feel the desire to do so now please say this prayer. This is how I was powerfully saved 20 years ago!
"My Lord and my God, Have mercy on my soul, a sinner, I believe Jesus the Messiah died on the cross and shed His precious blood for the forgiveness of all my sins. I believe God raised Jesus from the dead and Jesus is now on the right hand of God and can hear my prayer at this moment and wants to live through me and give me power to keep His Word. I open up the door of my heart and I invite You into my heart Lord Jesus. Please be my Lord and Savior in every aspect of my life. Thank you God for saving my soul and I vow to serve you with all my heart which is the first and greatest commandment. Amen"
