Different gospel perverts the True Gospel.

I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ. But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man. For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 1:6-12 NKJV)

Justified by Faith.

Therefore let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses. (Acts 13:38, 39 NKJV)

iPhone blog!

I finally download an app for blogger! I can finally blog from the phone ;)

Peace that Jesus gives.

Only Christ can give us the peace or shalom peace. He gives us the "living water" when we meditate on His Word. Trust in Him and He will bless you with the peace that the world cannot give you.

What does the Holy Spirit convicts you of?

John 16:8-11

New King James Version (NKJV)

And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:  
of sin, because they do not believe in Me;
10 of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more;  
11 of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

I was just reading these verses on my free time and notice something interesting.  

Holy Spirit will convicts the world of sin not because they sinned but because they don't believe in Christ.  Because of the unbelief in Christ we are doomed with the devil himself who is also the ruler of the world. 

Once you believe in Christ, Holy Spirit convicts you of righteousness in Christ.  So really, the Holy Spirit will not tell you what's wrong with you or your mistakes, He reminds you that you are righteous because of His death on the Cross. and that makes us the believers eternally righteous! 

The Holy Spirit judges the Devil, not us because we are covered by the Robe of His righteousness.  Just like the Prodigal Son.  The Father sees the lost son (us) and He ran to us and put on the Robe, ring, scandals and killed the fatted calf for us.  Did He condemned us, big time NO!  His heart is not in judgement but in mercy (Psalm 103:8-9)

God is Love, not judgement (1John  4:7-8).  He already exhausted His anger and judgement in the Body of Christ and Christ became Sin for us so that we may become the Righteousness through Christ (Romans 5:12-21).  God will not impute sins in us because of what Christ have done for us (Romans 4:8).  We boast in the Finished works of Christ.(Gal 6:14).
