“DIVINE GRACE”

Mans excuse for Lip Service”


Joseph C Atwater

As “confessed Christians” we condemn acts of violations to God’s


“Word”.
We cry the words of John the Revelator as quoted in the Book of
Revelations 22:18 “For I testify unto every man that heareth the
words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these
things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this
Book.” 19 “And if any man shall take away from the words of the
Book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book
of life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things that are
written in this Book.

In these words we stand accused of our own


deeds.
Listed are FEW translations we as “confessed” Christians have
added to the “Book” that condemn us of our own hypocrisy.
NIV New -International Version
NAS-New American Standard Bible
ISN-International Standard Version
AKJ-American King James Version
ASV-American Standard Version
BBE-Bible in Basic English
DBT-Darby Bible Translation
DRB-Douay-Rheims Bible
ERV-English Revised Version
GWT-Gods Word Translation
NWT-New World Translation
Good News
KJV-King James Version
We tend to gravitate to the “Version” or Translations of Man,
which constitutes “adding to” and “taking away” to gratify our lack
of spiritual insight.
“Confessed Christians share a common thread of “Selective
Doctrine”. We select what suits our needs and denounce
“scripture” that does not agree with our philosophies.
Now let us turn to Deuteronomy 4:2 “Ye shall not add unto the
‘Word’ which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from
it, that ye may keep the Commandments of the Lord your God,
which I command you.”
Have the Prophets and Writings of the Law which have been
“added” after these verses of scripture, in violation of Gods
command?
In our ignorance and blindness, we accuse falsely our own
Brothers and Sisters who abase our philosophies, when we stand
accused of “adding” to the interpretations to appease your
ignorance.

Which version do you profess?


Which man or men translated your Doctrines, so you can feel the
Emotions of “warm and fuzziness”? Perhaps your version is
“Clearer than the congregation down the street. Or maybe your
“Translation” gives you the advantage!
In your hearts you have taken the Word of God to fit your own
personal beliefs. You have “added doctrines” and “taken away
doctrines”.

Case in Point: Divine Grace


“Confessed Christians who advocate “Lip Service”, that is “Confess
Jesus and you will be saved” have denied the Bible and its
transcendent compassion and mercy.
They claim that all who “confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour”,
have rights to individual freedom of sin and eternal life.
They claim the 66 Books of the Bible as the Word of God as
“infallible”. (of course that’s after the translations are “added” or
“taken away”)

YET THEY DENY GOD’S JUDGMENTS FOR ALL HIS


CHILDREN
Confessed Christians are self serving and Self praising, thinking
they are the ONLY Saved Persons of all Gods Children!
THE DENY that ALL GOD’S Children are capable of receiving God’s
gifts of Eternal Life.
“If the peoples of the Old Testament including Prophets and
Righteous leaders, men and woman, that God had chosen, who
NEVER heard of Jesus Christ as “Confessed Christians do, it
appears they CANNOT have their sins remitted nor have eternal
life like “Confessed Christians!
This is the height of spiritual hypocrisy!
Because of one millennium, people NEVER heard of Jesus Christ,
they are exempt from being Saved, because they cannot confess of
someone they never knew. Does this sound just? Would a God of
‘Confessed Christians” deny one over another because they never
heard the Word?
It is much of the same catchcry of the past, that little children who
die without “confessing” Jesus Christ are doomed forever; or those
who die without baptism are incarcerated in Hell.

In this Doctrine and philosophy, Satan is its


author.
Again confessed Christians in sheep’s clothing with ravenous wolf
hearts.

Now let’s look at “Conditions of being Saved”


“All you need to do to be saved is to BELIEVE upon the Lord Jesus
Christ” .

Do you admit that you are a GUILTY sinner under the


condemnation of God’s LAW (the Ten Commandments), and
deserving of nothing but Hellfire?

Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God He is (God in the
flesh) who willingly died upon the cross to pay for our sins?

PLEASE PRAY the following Prayer

Dear Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner, deserving of Hell. Please


forgive me of my sins and take me to Heaven when I die. I now
believe upon You alone for my salvation, apart from all works and
religions. I call upon you as my personal Saviour. Thank you. In
Jesus name, I pray, Amen.”

It’s not the words that “save you”


Repentance of your sins and Faith in Jesus
through the Blood of Jesus
that’s what saves you nothing else!

If you prayed that prayer and really meant it


Repented of your sins and placed your Faith in Jesus
you are now a saved child of the King.
If you didn’t mean it IT MEANS NOTHING

You could just as easily believe in your heart upon the Lord to be
saved, and not pray at all. Salvation is of the heart, as we read in
Romans 10:10, “For with the heart man believeth unto
righteousness...”

What a wonderful Saviour we Serve!

I am saved, Now what do I do?

These words frame the dialog that “adds to the BOOK”


The mantra of the “Confessing Christian.

To deceive the unsuspecting convert, the “confessing Christian”,


repeats a half watered down confession of scripture.

The Apostle Paul is their mainstay, but they reject the writings of
the Apostle James, which is the other half of the dialog.

It’s like the body saying to the legs “I have no need of you”.

You really have nothing to stand on!

Let’s look at the Apostle James Chapter 2:14-20

2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath


faith, and have not works? Can faith save him?

2:15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food,

2:16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed
and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are
needful to the body; what doth it profit?

2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew
me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my
works.

2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the
devils also believe, and tremble.
2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is
dead?

THE DEVILS BELIEVE (CONFESS) there is One God and


Tremble!

Does this mean that Satan and his hosts are saved because they
BELIEVE in the True and Living God? I trough not!

Confessed Christians Believe and Tremble not…..or at least rarely!

How much better are the devils than the Christians? Well they both
BELIEVE and both CONFESS. Satan would have us all believe like
his Devils to Just Confess or Just Believe to be Saved.

Its quite apparent that they are NOT saved even though they
“Confess”.

His role as Indolent, Lazy, Slothful, To be Compelled, Inertia,


Inaction and Idleness are Satan’s tools in his toolbox to “work” on
the souls of men. “Eat, Drink, Be Merry, for all is well, for we have
“confessed Jesus Christ, while condemning the less fortunate……
those who have not “confessed”

What’s Missing?

Is the Apostle Paul’s word greater than Jesus? Is the servant


greater than the MASTER?

But to him that CONFESSES and DOES the will of God is fulfilling
the COMPLETE LAW.

Matthew Chapter 7

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into
the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my
Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not


prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and
in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart
from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine,


and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his
house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded
upon a rock.

26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his
house upon the sand:

27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of
it.

28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
people were astonished at his doctrine

I would propose that so called “confessing Christians” are


building sandcastles in sandy soils!

Sandy Soil of the “confessed Christian”

Jesus and God are the Same being and as “Spirit” “Uncreated”

Uncreated is like saying that God does not exist! That’s Satan’s plan
to deceive, trying to convince mankind God does not exist and the
he is in control.

To understand this “Doctrine” that has been “added to” the “Word”
, God as uncreated is a doctrine Not found in scripture but added
to satisfy the demands of a weak faith, seeking for that which is not
found.

Luke 24:36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the
midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace [be] unto you.

24:37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that
they had seen a spirit.

24:38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do
thoughts arise in your hearts?

24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me,


and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

24:40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them [his] hands
and [his] feet.
24:41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he
said unto them, Have ye here any meat?

24:42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an


honeycomb.

24:43 And he took [it], and did eat before them.

24:44 And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spake
unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled,
which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and
[in] the psalms, concerning me.

24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might


understand the scriptures,

24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved
Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

NOTICE in vs 37 “they were terrified and affrighted and


SUPPOSED they had seen a SPIRIT!

Jesus reply “Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in


your hearts?

In other words……your Foolish ,Vain, creeds of man made


doctrines of Me being a Spirit are refuted this day by my witness to
you of my Divine Nature!

This was following the RESSURECTION of JESUS. A NEW and


Gloried PERSON of GODLY PERSONAGE who ate fish and
honeycomb.

And Told the UNBELIVERS (“confessing Christians”) “Behold my


hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a
Spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

“And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them [his] hands and
[his] feet!

The man made Doctrine that is “added to” the Word of God, that
God is Spirit was Satan’s plan to deceive the unsuspecting and
unlearned.

Ye blind guides!
Do you suppose that Jesus disposed of his body before He went
into Heaven? Ye hypocrites!!!!!

In that you deny the Atonement and the Resurrection of Christ by


‘”confessing” that God is Spirit.

The Sadducees deny the Resurrection like unto yourself, in that


you say God did not rise with His body on the third day as all will
rise in judgement. But that God is some Spirit out there filling
Space, Invisible.

You take out of context and quote as the Sadducees of old, the
following vs.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship
him in spirit and in truth.

Colossians 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn
of every creature

Again you deny the Saviours words of Like 24 and find rational in
Paul’s words….who by the way SAW the resurrected Lord on the
road to Damascus.

He apparently SAW this Invisible God YOU have not seen or will
never see if you choose to see Him as “Invisible and Uncreated”

If God is Spirit and we must worship Him in Spirit does that make
us also Spirit? Of course it does!!!

Clothed in Mortal bodies which are unclean, as a tabernacle body


of clay. We are withheld from His presence.

But within us our Spirit can unite with His Spirit if we do the works
that He commanded us to do to be inline with His doctrines and
will.

Even Paul was struck to the earth and blinded as in the mortal body
but in the Spirit witnessed the Lord and spoke to Him although the
others saw no thing.

The others saw nothing because their God no doubt was “Invisible”
and Uncreated”
ONLY ONE GOD?

Maybe someone out there in “confessing land” can tell us who


Stephen saw when he was stoned , when he looked up in Heaven?

Acts 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly
into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the
right hand of God,

7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of
man standing on the right hand of God.

To the “Confessing Christian” it’s a Doppleganger. But the


scripture is self explanatory to the righteous.

1 Stephen (being full of (God) (Holy Ghost) (In his spirit not his
flesh)

2 Stephen seeing Jesus (God)


3 Stephen seeing (God) on the right hand of Jesus

Or perhaps what did Jesus witness at his own baptism when the
“dove” and the Voice from Heaven affirmed his ordinance of divine
will?

Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up


straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened
unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and
lighting upon him:

3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in


whom I am well pleased

Again the so called “confessing Christian would have God be a


ventriloquist.

They say God and Jesus is the Same as is the Holy Ghost and they
are all Spirit

Yet the Holy Ghost was a presence filled within Stephen, which is
Spirit, but Jesus in the image of His Father and very distinct as we
see from HIS own doctrines and own words, is open opposition
from the so called “confessed Christian” professions.

As in the Creation “God said, let US make man in our own image,
male and female.
In the similitude of the Father and the Son, separate and distinct as
we are.
