Behind The Hate For Grace Is A Evil Spirit.

"The word became flesh and made His dwelling among us and we have seen His glory, the one and only who came from the Father full of grace and truth. From the fullness". From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another. For the law was given through Moses but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ". (John 1:14-17)

Notice that Jesus is not the one who brought the law...Moses did. Jesus came with grace and truth. Notice He brought Grace AND truth ...not only truth!

History records and I have found out in my experience within religion that truth by itself hurts people and on times be crude, dangerous and destructive. History reveals that religion religion standing on truth alone has probably caused more damage to the community of humanity than anything else.

The law of Moses was not based on Grace even though it was based on truth, thus the reason for its severity and harshness.

It is important to see something here, Jesus did NOT come with Truth only, He also came with Grace. He brought Grace and Truth. Why? Because Grace and Truth makes Truth loving. Grace renders the crudeness, harshness, dangerousness and destructiveness null and void, because now we can love as Jesus loves. The Gospel is rooted in the Grace and truth of Jesus.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus did not promote or give into the Grace hating spirit?

Was the way Jesus reacted to the Pharisees and the Sadducees of a Grace hating spirit?

The Pharisees and Sadducees were the self-appointed religious orthodox authority...they were religious bigots and a big hindrance to people coming into salvation through God's Grace. Jesus discerned that He must not give into these Grace haters. These leaders were influenced by a grace-hating spirit.

Jesus was not deceived by the cunningly politically correct exterior of these religious bigots. They could put on such a good show in being hospitable and being nice but Jesus knew how controlling and manipulative their motives were.

His heart went out to the community of humanity that were sick and experiencing religious oppression, condemnation and enslavement by the law-keeping religious leaders. Not only did Jesus go preach the good new of freedom , pray for the sick and see great miracles among the multitudes, He also realized that He had to expose these bigots because of who they were, because their grace-hating spirit would want to bring His community of the redeemed into slavery again. He was not being rude to the Pharisees and Sadducees. Jesus was responding with a Grace loving Spirit for the community of humanity.

Rather, they were being rude to Him. They saw Jesus as a threat to their authority over the people. So they thought that through flattery and offering hospitality to Him they could disguise their hostility and weave their deception and manipulative control over Him. They arrogantly presumed that they could get Jesus safely into their religious fold and be controlled. They then would be able to work on Him and sterilize Him and weaken Him of His spiritual strength but they took on far more than they could chew, because Jesus knew their inner workings of their heart.

Jesus is so full of supernatural power that it He saw through these religious leaders to their perverted hearts. Jesus understood that you cannot submit to the to the grace-hating spirit, yet today so many believers are ignorantly deceived by the grace-hating spirit, by being Grace haters they are haters of Jesus Himself.

Many believers are taken in by the persuasive tactics, the smiling faces, the self-religiosity and false humility of the religious self-righteous that camouflages a sinister attitude that hates the freedom in Christ that Grace brings and hinders the truth of the relationship of the Grace message.

People today are so obsessed with religious exterior performance they are unable to understand the supernatural infusion of the Christ life within, therefore are not living the Christ life.
