You might say how do you know you heard from God? Actually that is a great question. In fact before long I might teach on hearing God’s voice and how you know it is Him.
I was saved as a young teenage boy so I have been born again for many years and since Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Lord, my Salvation and my Friend you bet I know His voice. If I didn’t know His voice by now that would really be bad.
Let me ask you this. Do you know the voice of your friends in this world? Don’t they have a voice that is like no other? Well it is the same with the Lord, you get to know your Master’s voice. It is like no other, Amen?
Like I just said if the Lord leads me I will teach on knowing the Lord’s voice and the many ways He talks to you. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU ABSOLUTELY KNOW THE LORD’S VOICE.
I believe someone needed what I just said.

So let’s get started today, with the exciting, living Word of God:
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
Remember I have been teaching on realizing what your inheritance is in Christ Jesus. Many Christians are living like spiritual paupers because they received the new birth and were born again but many Christians stopped right there and never grew any more than that.
They don’t have a revelation from the Lord of what their blessings and privileges are now that they are born again.
So they are Christians that may know there must be more but have never been motivated to really search it out in the Word of God and then become a doer of the Word and not a hearer only.James 1:22
The best way to look at a verse of scripture is to start from the first word and find out what that means and then do the entire verse like that.
So Ephesians 2:8-9 starts out and says you are saved by GRACE.
Grace is UNMERITED and UNDESERVED FAVOR from God once we repent of our sins and confess Him as our Savior and believe and say that God raised Jesus from the dead.
We don’t deserve to be saved (born again) because the best that you and I could do was as filthy rags. The Bible says our righteousness (the best we can be) is a filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6
Then that verse goes on to say that we are saved through FAITH. To be honest with you even the faith that it takes to be born again is not something that we possess it is something God possesses but He gives us the measure of faith. Romans 12:3
So what I am saying is that even when we received the new birth, it wasn’t our own faith that saved us it was the measure of faith God gave us so we could get right with God and be born again. Even that was given to us by God to help us get right with Him.
So as Paul is telling the Church at Ephesus in Ephesians it is only by God’s grace that you can be saved though the faith He gives you and then he says it is NOT OF OURSELVES.
There is nothing anyone can do in their own self to get right with God other than to ACCEPT HIM.
Let me ask you something?
Can you earn a free gift? The answer of course is a thousand times no. How can you earn a free gift that is given to you by God? It is impossible.
Yet among the cult religions one of the common things they are share is that they feel they have to do continual works to get right with God.
Unfortunately many Christians have this same feeling in the back of their mind. They may not admit it but somehow they just cannot accept the fact that their salvation was already bought and paid for them by Jesus’ blood. It is a free gift for you and I but it sure wasn’t for our Precious Savior as He went through a brutal murder.
I understand why the Lord spoke to my heart the other morning to minister on Ephesians 2:8-9.
People that are in religious cults obviously are not born again if they go by their teaching. Many have an insatiable desire to try to do GOOD WORKS after GOOD WORKS.
They believe this will get them right with God and they are desperate to try to attain this level of self righteousness with the Lord. Why do I say that, because it is true.
If you and I could possibly work our way to heaven, then Jesus not only lied to us through His Word but He was also crucified on our behalf for absolutely nothing. Because Ephesians 2:8-9 says we get saved by God’s grace through faith and not of works lest any man can boast No person can say “you know something I found a way to get to heaven without the shed blood of Jesus, I worked my way to heaven.”
Now don’t get me wrong, we are to do good works but when we start feeling like those good works help us get to heaven is when we are lied to by satan himself and swallow it hook, line and sinker.
False religion will always say it takes something else other than Jesus Christ to get to heaven.
I was listening to a Christian brother on television a couple of nights ago and a survey had been done among people that call themselves Christians and I was appalled at what was said. This survey stated THAT AMONG PEOPLE THAT CALL THEMSELVES CHRISTIANS 52% BELIEVE THEY CAN GET TO HEAVEN WITHOUT ACCEPTING JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR. (WHAT A BUNCH OF UTTER TRASH).
HOW COULD CHRISTIANITY HAVE BACKSLIDDEN THAT FAR? IT’S A TRADEGY!!!
We’re not talking about cult’s, that survey was taken among people who say they are Christians.
FIRST OF ALL THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO MAKE GOD HATE YOU OR LOVE YOU LESS. see in 1 JOHN 4:8
When you doubt what the Word of God says about how it is all God that saves you once you ask Him into your heart you will become frustrated with climbing that mountain of dead works as you will never reach the top and satan wants you to work yourself to death.
You know that the Word of God states that satan can come to you and speak to your mind like an angel of light. (2 Corinthians 11:14). He can convince you that you are not doing enough and get you on that spiritual treadmill and unless you get in the Word and see that it is all a lie you will be on that spiritual treadmill for the rest of your life, GOING NO WHERE.
When you get deceived by your church or somewhere else that all your “good works” will move God, you will never be able to see the top of that spiritual mountain that you are trying to climb there is no top. Based on God’s Word you are WASTING YOUR TIME AND ENERGY AND WILL NEVER GET RIGHT WITH GOD UNLESS YOU EXPERIENCE THE NEW BIRTH AND THE FREE GIFT GOD GIVES YOU WHEN YOU RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOR.
I pray that you are not doing good works as a Christian with the false idea of this is how I please God and get to heaven or this will help God love me more for all the sin I have done. Brother and sister you are wasting your time and energy and need to pray to the Lord that as you read Ephesians 2:8-9 that you will get a new revelation of what is means. Amen?
Don’t let satan lie to you and deceive you.
Your good works as a Christian should be the result of the fact that you are already born again and understand that it was by God’s grace and through faith that He gives you so that you can get born again in the first place. Your salvation nor the love God has for you has nothing in the world to do with any good work you do.
So here is what your outlook needs to be regarding good works. You want to do good works because you are already born again and good works are just a natural by-product of the new birth. You have fallen in love with the Lord and want to please Him not try to buy His love for you or your salvation because you ALREADY have that.
Here are some other scriptures that will minister to you on this subject:
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost.” Titus 3:5
“For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.” Titus 2:11
“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1 John 1:7

FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE NEVER ASKED THE PRECIOUS LORD JESUS IN YOUR LIFE TO BE YOUR LORD AND SAVIOR, THE BIBLE SAYS IF THOU SHALL CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND SHALL BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD (EASTER), YOU SHALL BE SAVED. FOR WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVES UNTO RIGHTEOUNESS (RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD) AND WITH YOUR MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION. ROMANS 10:9-10
