Grace Bible Church

What is needed to be understood is the place that we should have discovered the importance and the difference between the two.


God will give you what you truly desire if you are willing to study and apply His Word to the plan of God for your life.


The “Life of God” that is needed concerns the fact that you and I were not given soul-life until we were considered to be born physically alive and spiritually dead.


Under this principle, our Lord said;   “I will give you the proper information that you will need to be able to make the right decisions.


I do not believe that a fetus is a person until, first of all,  the fetus is given biological life and does not become a person until the fetus is brought forth.


“but in the end, we were told that “all of those things will work together for good for those who truly love God.”


Another way to put this is found by the questions we should all have because, as our Lord taught His disciples, God’s word or God’s plan goes on with or without us.


What a great time it is to be able to study the ministry of our Lord where we can spend some valuable time on “Who and What” our Lord is” and “What our Lord did or had done” when He was brought forth from the womb all the way to the tomb.

I have quoted many times the phrase — “From the womb to the tomb.”


Here is another important example of the grace of God and the love and mercy of our Lord, all were working together for good for the sake of those who truly loving each other by caring for the Lord or helping others.


I also found another manifestation of this principle in a very different way as the Lord was at work causing us to hear, to listen, or even, to obey.


Although we have found certain manifestations of the fruit that is used, it is said to be based upon the fact that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ quoted what the angel Gabriel announced.


These “two winner angels”  are used during the Christmas season because of their role as an angel who became a “winner angel” or “as an angel who performs what their role is” and “what their names actually reveal.


I could give you a lot of information which reveals the names of certain angels who had a special calling even after they fell.


Once again we see Satan and his kingdom of darkness causing negativity, sowing discord, attacking the grace of God, attacking the love of God, the forgiveness of God, etc. =  all of this was reported to millions and millions of rebellious angels.


1SA 15:23  “For rebellion is as the sin of divination (or witchcraft), And insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the   Lord, He has also rejected you from being king.”


1CO 6:3 we are told this: Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, matters of this life?


This verse explains that our life [that is the zoe life] will judge angels.


In 1Pe 1:12 we read that “Angels are said to desire to learn and look into the wisdom that the royal family of God possesses.


1PE 1:3   Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven‑‑ things into which angels long to look.


1Pe 1:12,  the apostle Peter said what it was that caused these angels to give attention to them or that which He had inspired mankind to put down in written form.


It is found, especially in the written word that God the Holy Spirit inspired those who desired to follow the Lord — no matter what the price would be.


They are all under the Doctrine of Divine Inspiration as a dispensation is a period of time in human history expressed in terms of divine revelation.


It is “grow in the grace of God and then to grow in the knowledge of God.


2PE 3:18  but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him {be} the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.


It is not grow by means of love but it is to grow by means of knowledge;


It is not grow by means of Immutability because only God can remain as He desires, we cannot.


It is not grow by means of Omnipotence because only God “can be”  “all powerful.”


It is not grow by means of Omniscience because only God can possess perfect knowledge, we cannot.


It is not grow by means of Omnipresence because only God can be everywhere or anywhere if He desires.


It is not grow by means of Righteousness because only God is perfectly righteous.


It is not grow by means of Eternal life because eternal life was a gift from God, a gift that only God can give to you.


It is not “grow by means of the Sovereignty of God” because the sovereignty of God is that which He uses to control the human race with the historical principles that keep the human race from self-destruction or to protect the human race from evil.


Remember the principle of God’s plan is not the same for every dispensation.  The plan of God for our life is quite different in each dispensation.


The most difficult and subtle plan for the believer in this Church-age is to learn about the predesigned plan of God for the Church-age, which is also identified and experienced as one who has also fulfilled their personal sense of destiny.


It is also important to know that we know and understand that all the  “Old Testament” believers were under a different plan which I refer to from time to time as the ritual plan of God.


We all need to learn and grow “by means of grace” or “even by means of knowledge;” as taught by the apostle in 2Pe 3:18 when our Lord Jesus Christ was under the incarnation plan of God.


One of the definitions of the Word of God is that “This doctrine keeps on giving to you and me right away.


You are to keep on preaching and teaching the way you like, which falls under the principle that “Grace must come before knowledge” or else “The Divine Authority”

We are a dispensation that is defined traditionally as a period of time during which a particular revelation of God’s mind and God’s will is operative.


This is when “God the Holy Spirit inspired many of the Lord’s people to be followers of Christ just like some of you were or some of those individuals who are popular in this plan of God.


It is God the Holy Spirit during which time man is tested as to his obedience to that specific manifestation of God’s will, purpose, and plan.


The believer’s orientation to both time and to Human History is vitally necessary for understanding God’s plan, God’s purpose, for all of us at some specific time.


Outside of the church which is called “The royal family” it is God’s  means of teaching angels “the manifold wisdom of God.”


 There are a few of these believers who can guide us or lead us to our place of refuge, which is really brought out in the personal love chapters found in the pages of scripture.


We all can learn and apply to the spiritual life that we should all have because of that which God the Holy Spirit has put within us.


There are many verses that teach us =  Grace first and then it is God the Holy Spirit is here to be “right” before our Lord’s ministry which is called the Second Coming or the Second Advent.


It is here that “the Second Advent or the Second Coming” is said to be that which the Holy Spirit uses and in Luk 1:35.


Even up to the fetus, that the coming of the Lord was not called a person until the day of our Lord’s birth.


It is that which reveals to us that a fetus was inside of Mary and that is why the fetus is called a “Holy Offspring” or a “Holy Thing”  but, at this moment, there is just the recognition of the angels who either chose or rejected the plan of God for the human race.


Gabriel is one of the “winner angels” who is described as an angel whose job it was to proclaim the Good News.


Notice in verse 35 in the NAS Bible we read that the fetus is called a holy offspring.


In the King James Bible, the fetus is called a “holy thing.”


The word that is used to describe the fetus in Mary =  the Greek adjective hagios which says not in the masculine or not in the feminine which would be translated “he” [in the masculine] or “she” [in the feminine].


It is a Greek adjective that is in the Neuter and that is why the NAS Bible translation or the KJ’s translation calls it a “holy offspring” or a “holy thing” respectively.


ROM 5:12   Therefore, just as through one man [Adam] sin or the  [OSN] entered into the world, and death [spiritual death] which resulted in sin or the old sin nature, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned‑‑Aorist tense which is the fact that “all sinned when Adam sinned.

This is why we have all been born in sin. There is no soul life in the blastocyst, the embryo or the fetus.


This is why as the King James Bible says that there is biological life in the womb or in the uterus, but no soul life as of yet .


It is when the fetus emerges that God creates soul life and imputes it to biological life.


Biological life is formed in the womb and is an extension of the mother’s physical life.


Here is a very important principle that took place after the biological life and the sin nature began at conception; whereas soul life begins at birth.


This accounts for reflex motility or movement but no soul life.


No one has true soul life until it is imputed.


Human life begins when the fetus emerges from the womb and God gives to that fetus, “neshamah” = “the spark of life,” not developed in the womb, but is given by God at birth.


Here is another important principle concerning when life begins because God cannot impute life without that life having a place to go.


In other words, God does not impute neshamah, the breath of life, to  a blade of grass or to a stone.


God cannot impute life without that life having a place to go.


And the home or the direction of human life is always imputed to the human soul.


As I stated so far, it is the home for physical life that is your life that is found in the soul.


There is also biological life in the womb or in the uterus, but no soul life.


It is when the fetus emerges, that God creates soul life and imputes it to biological life.


Your physical body was formed before life was given to your soul….just like it was in the first Adam and the Last Adam.

There are only two Adam’s that we have to deal with, the First Adam or the Last Adam.


“All things are put in subjection,”  it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him.
