Grace Bible Church

  1. The essence of God rationale;
    2. The plan of God rationale;
    3. The policy of God rationale which is grace orientation;
    4. And the a fortiori rationale.

A wrong thing done in a wrong way is wrong,
a right thing done in a wrong way is wrong,

a wrong thing done in a right way is wrong,
a right thing must always be done in a right way.

Many times when believers learn the F.R.D. they malfunction by simply thinking that they are absolutely innocent in the situation, and they have done nothing wrong.

  1. God can take any type of evil situation and convert it into divine good.
  2. Whenever someone tries to curse or destroy another believer, the Lord will turn the curse into a blessing when the believer operates in the F.R.D.
  3. Even when evil comes against you, the Lord can turn it into a blessing, providing that you operate in the F.R.D. And let him handle the situation.
  4. The believer does not have to fight and defend himself, God will do that for the believer who operates in the F.R.D.

2Th 1:6 for after all it is only just for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you,

  1. Stop being anxious and worried and let God handle any unjust and unfair situation, in Isa 35:4.

Isa 35:4  say to those with anxious heart, "take courage, fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance; the recompense of God will come, and He will deliver you."

  1. Never to take revenge on anyone for anything, Rom 12:19.

Rom 12:19 never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.

  1. If you are being mistreated in any situation, do not lift up your hand against another person, 1Sa 24:12.

1Sa 24:12  "may the Lord judge between you and me, and may the Lord avenge me on you; but my hand shall not be against you.

  1. If you have been robbed by another believer do not take out your vengeance and frustration on him, give it over to the Lord, 1Th 4:6.

1Th 4:6 and that no man transgress and defraud his brother in the matter because the Lord is the avenger in all these things, just as we also told you before and solemnly warned you.

  1. Never repay evil with evil and give someone what you think that they deserve, Pro 20:22.

Pro 20:22  do not say, "I will repay evil"; wait for the Lord, and He will save you.

  1. When someone has wronged you let the Lord repay him according to his deeds, 2Ti 4:14.

2Ti 4:14  Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm; the Lord will repay him according to his deeds.

As Pro 24:29 says....Do not say, "thus I shall do to him as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work."

Judge = God.
Defendant = TLJC
Plaintiff  = Satan.
Witnesses =  people (on earth).

He had created beings both in heaven and on earth that had freewill.
When their freewill would lead them against his will, then He would need to use this court to judge them.

Plaintiff: Satan

Case 2:
Judge: God
Plaintiff: Satan
Defendant: God (TLJC)
Witness: Noah

Case 3:

Case 5: (grace)
Judge: God
Plaintiff: Satan
Defendant: God (Jesus)
Witness: Peter

One of the many lessons that the event of September 11 2001 taught us was the importance of the military.

  1. Internally by the objectivity of law and by good law enforcement.
  2. Externally by the military establishment, Neh 4:14‑15.

In spite of man's efforts for peace, warfare will continue until the Millennium, Mat 24:6; Mar 13:7; Luk 21:9.

MAT 24:6 "And you will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not frightened, for {those things} must take place, but {that} is not yet the end.

Ecc 3:8, "There is a time for war,"

There is a book that the Lord inspired the Jews to write called in NUM 21:14  Therefore it is said in the Book of the Wars of the Lord,"

Pray for our leaders because war is necessary for the maintenance of national sovereignty and freedom.

In both the struggle for and the perpetuation of Jewish freedom after the Exodus, Jesus Christ Himself became the commanding general of the armies of Israel, Jos 5:13‑6:2.


The Bible teaches that armies defend freedom and armies destroy freedom, Jer 34:7, 12:12.

The issue of national sovereignty, integrity, and freedom always depends on which army wins, Jer 40:1.

God uses the military in action to demonstrate the degeneracy of a nation.

War is used by God to kill off the leaches of society.

A strong military prevents war and protects divine establishment.

  1. The spiritual factor of Bible doctrine in the soul, prayer, and the grace of God, Neh 4:8‑9.
  2. The second factor that protects a nation is military preparedness, Neh 4:8‑9, 13‑15.

Failure of society,

Lack of training,
No respect for authority,
Lack of courage,
No self-discipline,
And the trading of security for freedom.

In Heb 11:34 we learn that freedom was perpetuated because the people became courageous in battle.

First of all the Lord fought for Israel at the Red sea, Exo 14:14 "the Lord will fight for you while you keep silent."

The concept of Christ as a warrior will continue until the Armageddon campaign, Zec 14:3‑4.

Zec 14:3   then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.

The Lord Jesus Christ also delivered Israel, and killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in 701 B.C., Isa 37:36.

Isa 37:36   Then the angel of the Lord went out, and struck 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians; and when men arose early in the morning, behold, all of these were dead.

At Armageddon, in Rev 19:11‑15, He will break his own record, according to Rev 14:19‑20; Isa 63:1‑3, and kill millions.

Rev 19:11   And I saw heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and He who sat upon it {is} called faithful and true; and in righteousness He judges and wages war.

At this time there will be maximum slaughter by TLJC, Joel 2:20; Eze 39:11‑13 describes the stench.

This is why the Bible teaches the biblical principle of universal military training, Num 1:2‑3.

The book of numbers deals with the mobilization and war plans of Israel.

It teaches that each generation must be trained in war,  Judges 3:1‑2.

God left nations behind in the land of Israel to train the young men for war.

2SA 22:35 "He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze."

Draft dodgers, slackers, and deserters are sinful before the Lord, Num 32:6-23.

Just warfare is always from the Lord, 1Ch 5:19‑22.

1Ch 5:22 for many fell slain, because the war {was} of God.

In Psa 46:7-9, it teaches that "He makes wars to cease" through military victory.

He protects a righteous nation, Psa 55:20‑23.
