The Doctrine of Supergrace.
The General Definition of Grace.
Categories of Grace.
a. Saving grace, EPH 2:8-9.
b. Logistical grace, MAT 6:25-33.
c. Supergrace is the tactical victory of the angelic conflict, or spiritual maturity, JAM 4:6.
d. Ultra-supergrace is the sphere of the angelic conflict between the unfairness of the devil’s world and the total fairness of God to mature believers, whom God places under maximum testing and pressure, 2TI 2:10; 3:11-12.
Beyond super-grace is even a higher plane whereby you still have all of the blessings that you had in super-grace but they are completely surrounded by suffering, pressure, and adversity which intensifies these blessings.
Supergrace and ultra-supergrace are both related to the power of God, EPH 1:19.
PSA 23:5c-6 My cup overflows [with blessing]. Surely divine good and grace will pursue me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
ACT 13:22 “I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My heart, who will do all My will.”
But when a person is in reversionism his life is an intensified compound of misery piled upon misery until he dies the sin unto death.
This doesn’t mean he was perfect; supergrace and ultra-supergrace believers sin too,
The blessings of each, supergrace and ultra-supergrace, are beyond human imagination,
1TI 1:14 and the grace of our Lord has super-abounded with doctrine and love which is in Christ Jesus.
Supergrace is the highest adult stage of the spiritual life in the Royal Family of God. Supergrace is maximum glorification of Jesus Christ complementing His strategic victory of the angelic conflict with the believer’s tactical victory.

Supergrace is where the normal function of the royal priesthood and the production of divine good begins.
