MANIFESTATION OF GRACE
By Pastor Ola Olukoyede
@ RCCG CITY OF REFUGE Lagos, Nigeria
Text: Exodus 1:8,11,12, John 14:27
Egypt is symbolic of the world and Israel that of the Kingdom of God. God was training the Isrealites how to recognize the blessings and how also to behave when the blessings come. Grace isn’t without affliction but the capacity to survive the afflictions. GRACE is needed both to survive afflictions and and to also receive the blessing. You need Grace in time of crisis and so you must develop and grow across the different levels of grace.
The 5 Levels of Grace
1. Grace at Conversion: Ephesians 2:8
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
This is the first level of Grace. The grace we received at Conversion.- When we got born again. but we need to grow in grace.
2. Sufficient Level of Grace: 2 Corinthians 12:9
2 Corinthians 12:9
New King James Version (NKJV)
9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.As we grow in the Lord. He is interested in us growing from infanthood to adulthood. So we have here sufficient grace because at this level we are exposed to more responsibilities for our spiritual growth and maturity.
And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.This is a level at which God begins to do the miracuous through you. A realm of exploits in life and ministry. This level of Grace attracts many things to you that money cannot buy. Some things about grace are best experienced than thought.
4. ABUNDANT GRACE: 2Corinthians 4 verse 15
For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God.After the first three levels, you come to a point or level of Abundant Grace. Here, you experience favour an peace no matter what. Certain levels of breakthrough never happen until this level.
5. ALL GRACE. 2 Corinthians 9 verse 8
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.This is the realm of sufficiency in all things. This is where you begin to function like Isaac in Genesis 26:3
However the entry point into the first and then various levels of Grace is a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. ( YOU might want to pray the sinner's /new birth prayer I shared below)
Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and I believe you died in the cross for my sins and rose again the third day. Forgive my many sins wash away my wrong doings with your blood. Come into the my heart and become my Lord and Saviour of my life. Thank you for saving me and filling me with your wonderful Holy Spirit. In Jesus name I pray AMEN!
(If you prayed that prayer I welcome you into God’s own family you might want to inbox me to let me know of your new decision firstname.lastname@example.org)
