The Ancient Path
Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls. But they said, "We will not walk in it." - Jeremiah 6:16

Christ died FOR us, not INSTEAD of us
Christ came TO us, and died FOR us, but He did not die INSTEAD of us. He did not die on the cross so that we didn’t have to die; but rather so that we also (by partaking of His Spirit, grace, and power) COULD die...
This is a great problem in the church today. We have so many who have not even begun to leave the land of Egypt (I mean leave the flesh, the first birth, the natural man), and yet they talk and sing of and celebrate the blessings...
Grace Should Reign
Grace is a gift of God’s power, a measure of His life, light, and Spirit, a seed of His heavenly kingdom, that is given to men in order to grow in them, to work in them, to leaven them and change them entirely, removing every form...
The Appearings of Christ
The Lord appears in a flash of inward light, which, for at least a moment, forces us to see something of His truth, and something of our lie; something of His life, and something our death; something of His purity, and something of our vileness; something...
Two Births in Man
Here is your condition. This is what you currently feel, and what everyone can feel if they are willing to turn to the Voice that reproves them. You feel something stirring and moving in you that is good, and pure, and living, and is excited to...

Grace has a seed in man, a seed that is sown in the heart by the One who is “full of grace and truth.” And when our will unites to the teaching and working of grace, it then finds a place to grow, it gains power in us, gains inertia, finds a home in our hearts and minds, and its power increases until it “reigns through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Law and Grace pt. 4
Grace doesn’t come to man like an enormous army with banners, immediately destroying all resistance in its path. No, the gift of grace is like a King that God sets in the midst of His enemies (Psa. 110). He anoints His king, sets him in the land of our heart, and then gives everyone who feels the plague of his own heart the opportunity to join him in the day of His power. This is how grace is received, and how grace comes to have power over nature.

What is that gospel of grace? It is the truth, the reality, the miracle, that God has provided such a power, a living seed or gift of His own light, life, or Spirit, that can change man’s condition, and change man’s eternity, by changing his nature. It is a gift of the life of God that, when not resisted, can effectively bring about the birth, and growth, and the reign of the righteous life of God in the soul of man.
While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.John 12:26
