VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: AVAILABLE: Grace!





The Grace Of God
Is No Paying Off Of Debt
To Me!
It Is A Gift!
I Am The Object
Of God's Favor
Something
For Which I Can Never Labor!

I - Of Myself
Can't Hold Out My Hand
To The Eternal God
AND SAY:

"Give Me!"

Some Of This
A Bit Of That
A Golden Goose
A Pat On The Back
Nor Life Eternal
Nor Exemption From Life's Trials
Nor Relief From Satan's Vicious Attacks!

God's Grace Upon Me
Means
God's Blessings
I Have To See
For
There Cannot Be One
Without The Other
So
Take No Thought
Of How To Get More
For
Walking Right In God's Light
Opens The Heavenly Store!

"You Shall Receive!"That Is The Promise Of God
AND
Not A Sleight Of Hand
As Would Come Of The Hand Of
King Liar More!

Believe And Receive!
Trust
AND
Do Not Try To Conceive
Of Ways
By Which To "Force"
The Hand Of God!

You Are Not Big Enough
Old Enough
Wise Enough
Nor
Strong Enough!
In Essence
You Don't Have The Stuff
Or You Would Be God Yourself
Not Needing Anything
From The God Of Love
Who Rules
Reigns
AND
Resides
In The Heavenly Abode Above!

Have Faith
In The Holy God
Who Grants Unto Man Favor!
Favor From The God Of All Graces
Requires
A Child Of Faith
To Say Grace
Aka Thanks
AND
Be Thankful
Knowing That There Is More
Much More
To Favor Full Grace
The Body Of Which
In This Realm
We Cannot See
Touch
Nor Taste
Except
With Jesus' Faith!

Jesus Christ On Earth
Grew In The Favor Of God!
Did That Mean
That Christ's Growth
Was An Unmerited Gift?!
It Cannot
For Christ Was God Fully
Man Fully
God-Man
Without Sin!
Jesus Was-Is Himself God
So That Would Be Silly!

It Means
The Fulfillment Of The Promise ...
The Spirit Of God
Is Upon Me (Jesus)!

AND
Without Measure
Again
As Word Of God Says!

The Spirit Of God
Is The Spirit Of Grace!
The Spirit Of Grace
Gives Favor
AND
Gifts Unto Men!

In This Realm?

In This Realm!

God Is In Control ...!

... Even Though It Appears
That God's Favor Falls
On The Employees Of The Fraud!?

Men Who Do Not Understand
The Government Of God
Nor Appreciate The Gifts Of Blessing 
To Men Given
Liken Corporeal Prosperity
To Mean
Bad Man Is Good
Even As His Light Shines Darkly
And In His Mouth
Truth Is Cast Into The Street
Rendering Other's Lives
Bitter
Instead Of Sweet
Because He Has
All Of Life's Sweet Treats!

God's Grace Is Not Money!
But It Could Be!
God's Grace Is Not Fame
Nor Is It Shame! 

God's Grace
God's Spirit
Leads To Life
Whilst In The Mortal Strife
Molding
Cleansing
Teaching
Feeding Leading
Correcting Directing
Chastising
Never Dispising
For God's Grace
Is There
Because Jesus Christ Died
To Save
To Redeem
The Children Of The Fall
To Become His Ransomed
His Redeemed Children
- By I-Choose Choice -
No Coercion At All!

But, Why Can't God's Grace
On Us Be About Earthly Prosperity?!

What Is Prosperity?

Money, Food, Shelter
Clothing, Toys ...!

Did Not Jesus Say
That God Provides
Those Things That Are Needful
Both To The Evil And The Good?! 
That He Knows
What We Need
For Daily Living
Is The Thing That Needs To Be Understood!

The Grace Of God
Passes
Human Understanding!
Sufficed To Know
Man Has Access To Daily Grace
AND
I
We 
Should Ask The Lord
For Grace To Grow
AND
Grace His Will To Know!

I Say Grace - Thanks!
For Meals!
I Plead For Grace
AND
Accept Mercy!
I Pray For The Outpouring
AND
For The Indwelling Spirit Of God
So That In Him
I Am Away From
The Camp Of The Fraud!

There Is Grace
Because
You Are Man Alive!
There Is Grace For The Believer
Because
He For Heaven Does Strive!
There Is Grace
Because
You To Christ Do Repair!
There Is Grace
Just Because There Is Grace
Just Because God Is God Almighty
Just Because God The Eternal Is Love
AND
The Only God Great
AND
Because He
- Of His Own Will -
Desires
That All Should Come To Repentance
AND
Into His Kingdom
Be Eternally Saved!

The Living God Gave His Son 
To Get Us Grace!
Shouldn't We Be At The Least, Thankful
AND
Thank Him To His Face?!

Man Is A Strange, Strange, Creature!
The God Who Made Him
Gave Him 
The Free Gift Of Life Eternal
Via His Saving Grace
BUT
Before Man Accepts God's Great Grace
Man Looks His Maker
- Boldly -
In His Face
AND
Wants To Know 
Why
How
Who But
If And
Where When
Then
Before He Will Say:

"Thank You, Lord!
Bless You, Father!
I Accept The Gift!
Let Me Shake (Hold)
Your Holy Hand!"

Man Needs To Step Back
And Take Off His Big, Big Head
And Humble Himself
Before The Eternal God!

Men Hate God
BUT
Want God's Rewards
BUT
They Refuse The Good Stuff
- The Spirit Of Grace -
AND, INSTEADTake The Perishable Goods
Exchanging The Blessing
For A 
Bauble
Because
They Do Not Want To Be Disciplined
Nor Led
Nor Fed
At 
In
The School Of The Holy God
Who Did Them
Their Lives Give!

Grace Mercy
Faith Trust
Hope For Salvation
Infinite Love!
Jesus Is The Captain
The Boat
The Sea
The Life Preserver
The Food Source
The Source Of Life
For Me And For Thee!

Got To Go!
Let's Talk Later!
It's Time For School!
My Teacher Is Christ Jesus
AND
He Provides Heavenly Thoughts 
For Sweet Food!
