True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 3-30-2012Question: God helps those that help themselves. True or False?Answer: FALSE! It is extremely difficult to understand why unsaved and saved religious church members are determined to ignore or to limit the Grace of God. In their religious lives many of them have adopted the slogan and program of “do it yourself.”, or “God helps those that help themselves”. They care not to join with the number one Christian of all times in his testimony, “by the Grace of God I am what I am.” (1 Corinthians 15:10). Now, out of the 741 responses we received to this question, again, ONLY 65% of you got it right!

Therefore, NOW, let us take a look at,The Grace of God, part 6 of 9WHAT ABOUT GRACE IN OTHER AGES AND DISPENSATIONSIn the 39 Books from Genesis to Malachi, God’s Grace for the human race is mentioned in about twelve chapters; in most of them once only.God certainly manifested His Grace toward Abel and Enoch and Noah and Shem.

First the Question: In the Gospel of John the word Grace is found exactly 24 times. True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 3-25-2012Question: The Pentecost message of the Apostle Peter was the Gospel of the Grace of God for Gentiles. True or False?Answer: FALSE! The Apostle Peter’s Pentecost message was NOT ‘the Gospel of the Grace of God’ for Gentiles. The “ritualists”, and ‘back to Pentecost’ religious church members, prefer the message of John the Baptist and the message of the Apostle Peter to Israel on the day of Pentecost, “baptism unto repentance for the remission of sins,” as opposed to the Grace Gospel from Titus 3:5-8. When Peter and the Eleven preached the Kingdom Gospel to Israel on the day of Pentecost the risen LORD had NOT YET revealed His Grace Gospel for Gentiles when, and because, of the temporary FALL of Israel. (Romans 11:11). Now, out of the 762 responses we received to this question, 87.5% of…

True or False?Answer: TRUE! In 1 Timothy 1:11-14 we have from the Holy Spirit, through the pen and heart of Paul, “according to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust”, “Christ Jesus counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.”, “and the Grace of our LORD was exceeding abundant.” Also in 2 Cor. 4:4 the Gospel, which the Apostle Paul called ‘MY GOSPEL’ (Romans 2:16) , is called the Gospel of Glory.

True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 3-20-2012Question: There is no lack of Grace and no lack of spiritual blessings, the lack is on the part of the believer. True or False?Answer: TRUE! Of Course!! There is no lack of Grace and no lack of spiritual blessings. The lack is on the part of the believer; and that is the lack of appropriating the Faith; and a lack of a real desire and willingness to CLAIM the Grace and blessings. Now, of course, and which is the case most of the time, there might be a lack of spiritual know how. Now, out of the 701 responses we received to this question, 94.4% of you got it right!

True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 3-18-2012Question: There is NO difference between being moral and religious, AND, being righteous and spiritual. True or False?Answer: FALSE! There IS a GREAT difference between being moral and religious, and being righteous and spiritual. Apart from God’s Grace and Christ’s work on the cross...there is none righteous, not one...and NO child of Adam is alive from the dead. The self righteous, moral, conscientious religious, church going, Christ rejecting, unbeliever, abounding in good works, is just as dead in God’s sight as is the wicked unbeliever who abounds in evil works.

True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 3-16-2012Question: God divided Israel, in the days of the Apostle Paul, into two groups. True or False?Answer: TRUE! The LORD directed the Apostle Paul to write concerning the ‘elect’ and the ‘rest’ of the religious self‑righteous law‑keepers. The ‘elect’ found the righteousness they sought; but the rest were blinded. Thus God divided Israel in Paul’s day into two groups. Romans 9:29-33, and, Romans 11:5-6.

First the Question: God divided Israel, in the days of the Apostle Paul, into two groups. True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 3-11-2012Question: There is only ONE case of apostolic succession in The Bible. True or False?Answer: TRUE! Only ONE, Matthias succeeded Judas. Acts 1:21-26. Now, certainly the Apostle Peter had no God given authority over the Gentile churches. Therefore, it is not Scriptural to say that the Apostle Paul succeeded Peter in authority. But it IS Scriptural to say that, Paul received from the RISEN Christ in Heaven, a commission, a message, a ministry that superseded the message and ministry committed unto Peter by Christ. Paul received his authority from Heaven WITHOUT conferring with those who were Apostles before him. Galatians 1:12-17. Now, out of the 805 responses we received to this question, 68.8% of you got it right! Therefore, NOW, let us take a look at,The Apostle Peter and the KE…

LLM Question, and, Romans 8:28-32 Predestination and Free Will in this Age of Grace

First the Question: There is only ONE case of apostolic succession in The Bible. True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd Now...Romans 8:28-32 Predestination and Free Will in this Age of GraceQuite frequently we hear a Child of God quote Romans 8:28, especially when some sorrow or disappointment has been experienced. But it is interesting to note the “FOR” that connects this verse with the three verses that follow. Note Romans 8:28 and the three verses that follow, Romans 8:29-32:“AND WE KNOW THAT ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE. FOR WHOM HE DID FOREKNOW, HE ALSO DID PREDESTINATE, TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, THAT HE MIGHT BE THE FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN. MOREOVER WHOM HE DID PREDESTINATE, THEM HE ALSO CALLED: AND WHOM HE CALLED, THEM HE ALSO JUSTIFIED: AND WHOM HE JUSTIFIED, THEM HE ALSO GLORIFIED. WHAT SHALL WE THEN SAY TO THESE THINGS? IF GOD BE FOR US WHO CAN B…

First the Question: There is only ONE case of apostolic succession in The Bible. True or False?Take a moment to respond at the LLM Question of the DayAnd now the answer to the LLM Question of 3-9-2012Question: The joint Body of Christ, was a Mystery UNTIL the revelation was sent down from Heaven by the RISEN Christ to and through the Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul. True or False?Answer: TRUE! The revelation of this program came to the Apostles of Christ on the installment plan. It is true that Christ had said to Simon Peter, “Upon this Rock I will build my Church”. Matthew 16:18. BUT concerning the Body of Christ, into which both Jews and Gentiles were to be baptized by ONE Spirit, Peter was wholly ignorant; not only before he received Holy Spirit baptism, but for some years thereafter. The Church, or Body of Christ, was a Mystery UNTIL the revelation was sent down from Heaven by the RISEN Christ to and through the Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul. OK, now, out of the 723 responses we rec…
