Grace vs Holiness [podcast]
“The horrible travesty we have in America today is Christianity without holiness.” A.W. Tozer
Grace and holiness come only from God. The LORD is Holy and He extends salvation by grace to repentant, believing sinners at the moment of conversion. Grave vs Holiness: WHY is one of these two so overwhelmingly overemphasized by today’s pastors and self-appointed “grace teachers,” when the other is prioritized by God as is demonstrated by the number of times it appears in Holy Scripture?
Which word appears more times in the Bible?:
- Grace, or
LET’S DO THE MATH:
Comparing Grace and Holiness
170 to 654 is the score …
Before we do the actual math, let’s ask…..
Which of these two phrases is found in God’s Word?
— “Grace, grace, grace”
— “Holy, holy, holy”
“Holy, holy, holy” is found twice in Holy Scripture (Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8). The phrase “grace, grace, grace” appears nowhere in the Bible.
Shocking: Numbers don’t lie! A stunning revelation of the prophecy of Jude in the modern church world! (Jude 4)
“Grace” appears 170 times in the Bible. “Holy” appears 611 times, and “holiness” 43 times—a total of 654 times in God’s Word. Yet many preach all grace and no holiness – which alone reveals they are “accursed” for preaching “another gospel” (Galatians 1:6-9).
Holiness 654 vs Grace 170
The difference in the numbers here is shocking and should cause us to pause and see if we’ve over emphasized one thing in God’s Word while ignoring another. This is due to a priesthood of preachers passing on imbalances from generation to generation.
It’s quite amazing how so many have been misled. All they can speak of is God’s grace, which they view as a license to sin, and yet these same people NEVER mention and are completely ignorant to God’s holiness. Let’s take a peek at these 2.
Every honest person who is an eternal securist who looks at these numbers will be rebuked, convicted. And, they will have the opportunity to realize they’ve been scammed and it’s all their fault for not diligently studying God’s Word for themselves.
TODAY’S self-proclaimed “grace teachers” are expert at tickling ears and are sought out by the tell-me-what-I-want-to-hear counterfeits (2 Timothy 4:2-4).
Perhaps more than any other Bible topic, the topic of grace offers deceivers the grand opportunity to exploit their prey. This is exactly what the Holy Spirit warns us about in Jude 3-4 and exactly what we see happening on an epidemic scale today.
The many “accursed” false grace teachers today preach “another gospel” as they offer a salvation by grace that guarantees their audience the license to live in sin and still be saved into Heaven when they die – no matter how they lived their life on earth. There’s no such grace taught in God’s Word (Galatians 1:6-9).
“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? 2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” Romans 6:1-2
Saving grace does not abound, is not applied, is not appropriated by, or accredited to anyone living in sin. Any writer, pastor, evangelist, etc., who is not regularly preaching the essential of personal holiness is preaching “another gospel” and is an “accursed” wolf.
The whole counsel of Scripture communicates to us that God gave us His grace to make us holy as He is holy and not to grant the believer a license to live in the sin Jesus died and rose again to deliver us from. Since God is “Holy, holy, holy,” the Bible teaches us that all who die in sin, regardless of their past relationship with Christ will suffer eternal damnation (Ezekiel 18:4; 33:12-13; Romans 6:1-2, 15, 23; 11:20-22; Galatians 5:19-21; Hebrews 3:12-14; 10:26-39; 2 Peter 2:20-21; etc.).
In light of this differential, can someone please tell me why there are virtually no messages on holiness in the modern church? ~Greasy grace sells. Holiness does not sell but rather scatters counterfeits.
Obviously, God spoke much more about His own “Holy, holy, holy” divine nature and the necessity of personal holiness in those who will be His – than He did about grace (1 Peter 1:15-16).
The false grace perpetrated by modern church wolves coddles and justifies people in their sin! Jude foretold this very thing! (Jude 4)
“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness (license for sin), and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 4
ANY time you see some vile wolf calling himself a “grace teacher,” you know you are dealing with the very “ungodly” grace-perverting devils Jude specifically warned us about. Jude 4
Beware of the many flowery definitions of grace which can be very misleading (Titus 2:11-12; Jude 3-4, etc.). Why not get your theology, your knowledge of God straight from His divine mouth by studying His Word for yourself? (2 Timothy 2:15)
God’s grace through Christ did not change His definition of sin and the fact that sin separates the sinner from God – no different than how it separated sinless Adam and Eve after they sinned. The wages of sin is still death (Romans 6:23). Any person who was saved in the past and then dies in sin, will be in hell forever. Read Ezekiel 33:12-13; Revelation 22:11. God is “Holy, holy, holy” and that never changed and never will (Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8).
God gave His Son and gives His grace so His people can overcome all sin, not make excuse for it (Romans 6:14).
Backslidden counterfeits are willingly deceived “enemies of the cross of Christ”, who want nothing to do with anything that involves giving up their lives in this fleeting world and so they hide behind the prophesied grace-perverting false doctrines of eternal security and Calvinism (Philippians 3:18-19; Jude 4).
Many are listening to wolves and being indoctrinated with a false grace message. Beware.
SO MUCH is said today in the modern church world of grace, grace, and more grace and yet, little to nothing is ever mentioned of the holiness of God. WOW! Are we really gullible enough to believe that we have divine grace in its proper biblical perspective? When’s the last time your favorite “grace teacher” even mentioned what God’s Word says of His grace in Titus 2:11-12? Go see why they never mention that! Did Jude not warn us of the “ungodly men” who’d pervert God’s grace? (Jude 4)
It’s only the sin-justifying, grace-perverting frauds who hate personal accountability and obedience as the manifestation, the fruit of true worship and love for God (Titus 2:11-12; Jude 4).
IF you love God, truly, you will obey Him. Those who do not obey Christ, don’t love Him (John 14:15; 1 John 2:3-6, etc.).
Hell is full of people who got saved, then made excuses for their Christ-denying, cross-less life on earth (Matthew 7:21; Titus 1:16).
The way modern wolves preach you’d think grace was the only thing found in the New Testament. Oh, and a perverted grace at that! In this we see the prophetic utterance of the Holy Ghost, of the perverting of the grace of God, through Jude manifesting before our very eyes.
Many of the vile snakes operating as pastors today in the modern church received their theological marketing degree from an evangelical, vatican-controlled seminary. These men are peddling a false grace and are fulfilling the prophecy of Jude 4. Our part to fulfill is Jude 3 – to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” In other words to expose these “ungodly men” who teach the eternal security doctrine of devils!
Is it not also telling that no such divine attribute of “Grace, grace, grace” appears anywhere in Holy Scripture, and yet “Holy, holy, holy,” appears not once but twice (Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8)?
Do you know anyone who calls themself a “grace teacher”? Do you know anyone who uses the term “sovereign grace”? Beware.
Easy grace sells. This is why it’s overemphasized by the marketers many call “pastors.”
YOU can plainly see when someone is refusing to be honest about their sin when they migrate to the grace, grace, grace, “sovereign grace” delusionment. Simultaneously they evade truth, holiness, judgment to come, hell, the gospel necessity of the crucified life – the daily cross, etc.. BEWARE of devils like this (Jude 3-4). ETERNAL SECURITY / OSAS is a diabolical myth espoused by Christ-denying, cross-denying counterfeits.
WHEN you hear the term “sovereign grace,” it’s coming from a Calvinist, reformed heretic.
Those who cry “grace, grace, grace,” “sovereign grace,” “once saved always saved,” and “eternal security” are frauds – the very “ungodly men” the Holy Ghost warned us about in Jude 3-4. Hint: These delusional, diabolical wolves NEVER even mention, don’t even know, and intentionally evade GRACE Scriptures such as Titus 2:11-12. And they do so because they want nothing to do with personal responsibility in the crucified life – without which no man can live in an abiding, Heaven-ready relationship with Christ! Read John 15:1-6.
Hell is full of OSAS counterfeits! Caught red-handed are agents of the father of all twists, half-truths, and lying deceptions! Discerning Satan’s agents.
“Grace” theology that excludes divinely inspired truth such as that found in Titus 2:11-12 is purposely withheld by “ungodly men” in order to pervert saving grace (Jude 3-4). 99% of today’s modern so-called, self-proclaimed “grace” teachers never mention Titus 2:11-12 and it’s by design. These are the very “ungodly men” who’ve turned God’s grace into a license to sin – without the consequence of losing salvation (Jude 3-4). YOU’D better find out for yourself all that God’s Word says about grace….. Jude 3-4 tells us there are many “ungodly men” today perverting the original Gospel message of grace which never justifies sin but rather grants the divine ability to overcome all sin (Romans 6:1-2; Titus 2:11-14).
IT would be impossible for a preacher to be taking up the cross himself and not be preaching the cross, the crucified life. What’s that say for America’s preachers? (Philippians 3:18-19)
Reader, any observation on the vast number of times holiness appears as contrasted with grace? The point this illustrates is that grace-perverting wolves over-emphasize and pervert grace while ignoring the holiness of God which is much more prevalent in the Bible. In Jude 3-4 we are mandated specifically to “earnestly contend” against these Christ-denying, cross-less, grace-perverting wolves.
“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” Jude 3-4
In fulfillment of this profound prophecy (above), today we see so many so-called, self-proclaimed “grace teachers” who are the very “ungodly men” we are warned of and told to “earnestly contend” against.
Have you ever noticed that there are no people calling themselves “holiness teachers”? Is that not telling? Such a declaration would certainly mean very low numbers and not much popularity among sinful men, right? Right! Holiness preaching doesn’t tickle ears and garner nickels, noses, and numbers (2 Timothy 4:2-4).
Today, we often hear a lot about the biblical doctrines of grace, faith, and mercy and yet seldom hear of the biblical doctrines of the cross of Christ, the crucified life God calls us to, repentance, abiding in Christ, enduring to the end to be saved, bringing forth good fruit, holiness, and being ready for Christ’s return.
Today we have many Calvinist devils who use the term “sovereign grace” but never “sovereign holiness.” Isn’t that interesting now that we’ve done the simple math and now know that “holy/holiness” nearly quadruples the number of times “grace” appears in the Bible? Do you think there could be an agenda? Duhhhhhh
You KNOW when you are listening to a wolf when he never speaks of holiness, fearing God, and obeying God, but rather always only speaks of grace, mercy, love, etc. RUN!
Divine grace is the means to holiness (via the cross life) and never the excuse for sin!
Also, these vile, self-proclaimed “grace teachers” NEVER teach what God’s Word teaches about grace in Titus 2:11-12. Watch this and you will see why they intentionally negate this passage:
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;” Titus 2:11-12
Those truly saved by grace aren’t sitting around in the “eternal security” club like a bunch of moral cowards rejoicing that they are “saved no matter what.” No, they are learning – being taught by true divine saving grace – to be “denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;”
Here are Bible verses you will never hear these devils mention, much less desire to be honest with and expound upon:
“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:” Hebrews 12:14
“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” 1 Peter 1:15-16
There are a myriad of severe warnings that the lame “grace teachers” of today will never mention. Here are two more Bible passages the false grace teachers purposely avoid:
“Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from ALL filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” 2 Corinthians 7:1
What kind of church is Jesus coming back for?
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 THAT he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.” Ephesians 5:25-27
The reason counterfeits intentionally avoid such biblical truth: Such biblical truth would interrupt their perpetration of a false grace. These wolves are running a scam that is ensnaring millions who refuse to truly repent and study the whole of God’s Word for themselves. They simply do not love the LORD and therefore His truth, and consequently will be “damned” eternally (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
If you’ve been deceived, it’s only because you have refused to study God’s Word for yourself – as He commanded you to do (2 Timothy 2:15). Now repent, shut off the false teachers, and get into God’s Word!
Biblically speaking, we will only be permanently secure when we are with Him in glory. For now, if you’ve been truly born again, you must “endure to the end to be saved” (Matthew 10:22; 24:13).
They Myth of Eternal Security | Did Jesus and His Apostles Teach Eternal Security? Take a Look
The term sovereign grace never appears in Scripture and is the invention of the Calvinist devils the Holy Spirit warns us about in Jude 3-4. Calvinism is Heresy
Satan will give people a million pounds of truth to kill them with that one ounce of poison.
But Calvinism has ample amounts of poison and no one who holds Scripture as final authority could possibly buy into it. “A little leaven leaveneth (ruins) the whole lump” (Galatians 5:9). Here is a library of posts exposing the roots and false doctrines of Calvinism. Calvinism
