The Pagemaster Symposium – The Lost Message

The next Pagemaster Symposium is in a few days.

Want to know what it is like to be at the Pagemaster Symposium?

Previously on The Pagemaster Symposium. . .

In Chronicles Of Grace, there were 5 segments to the message. In the first (introductory) segment, we saw that the original concept of forgiveness in the Kingdom is based on an account system of balancing accounts by cancelling debts, taking our cue from Matthew 18:21-35, we came to the understanding;

Forgiveness is cancellation of debt – but without a non cash expense account called a ‘bad debt expense’, a cancelled debt will cause an imbalance in the company’s account. The sacrifice of Jesus is God’s ‘bad debt expense’ account. Because of Him, we experience forgiveness and God’s justice is still pacified. Without that sacrifice, either we remain without God’s forgiveness or we have it and the scale of justice becomes unbalanced.

We also saw the trajectory of this grace encoded in the Old Testament.

In light of what we saw in Matthew 18:21-35 (the parable of forgiveness), we came to an understanding of three horrors that can befall any man who forsakes the grace of God as expressed in forgiveness. For no one can repay God the debt they owe Him, you can only humbly accept His forgiveness.

There are three non-redemptive means to balance the account as seen from this passage of scripture mentioned above.

To be sold into slavery,

To be sent to prison, or

To be handed over to the torturers.

1. To be sold into slavery is synonymous to any business of today that cannot pay its debt and is declared bankrupt and foreclosed by its creditor(s).

In like manner, being unable to pay your debt to God and being unwilling to repent and humbly ask for forgiveness, will lead to moral bankruptcy in which a person is handed over to a reprobate mind to succumb to all kinds of vices (see Romans 1:21-32).

And interestingly, it was not just the unprofitable servant that was to be sold but his entire family too (Matthew 18:25). That tells me that one man’s rejection of grace can lead an entire family into perdition. It happened in the Garden – Adam’s sin led to humanity’s fall from grace. And let us not forget what happened to Amaziah and his family when he came against Amos (see Amos 7:16-17).

2. To be sent to prison like that younger servant can be likened to taking legal action against a business that refuses to pay up it’s debt.

In things pertaining to the kingdom, this speaks of being sent on a guilt trip – to be bound by legalism and religion. Here, the debtor will always choose penance instead of repentance. There is nothing redemptive about penance; only destruction awaits such a man.

3. The third case is to be handed over to the torturers. This is death. Once sin and unrepentance leads to death, the victim will find himself in hell fire where the torturers will torment him or her day and night. May this never be our portion.

If the prospect of life without forgiveness is so grim, you can imagine the premium heaven places on this extravagant grace of God.

This was the first point of a five point message in the last Pagemaster Symposium we had.

Imagine what you could have gained if you were in attendance for the entire five course meal.

Don’t miss the next symposium, it is just around the corner.

The Pagemaster Symposium – Chronicles of Grace

Pagemaster - June 9, 2018 (2)

It is another life-changing edition of The Pagemaster Symposium and you are cordially invited.

Theme: Chronicles of Grace

In dark times like this when the authentic gospel of Grace has been overshadowed by a counterfeit, we are in dire need of great illumination on this important subject.

WhatsApp Image 2018-05-31 at 11.34.05 AM

This need is what the Pagemaster Symposium aims to address come Saturday, 9th of June, 2018 from 1pm – 4pm at The premises of The Incorruptible Seed Church, Excellence Hotel, Aguda, Ogba, Lagos.

Our approach will go beyond just teaching on the subject matter but as the theme of the symposium indicates, we will trace the trajectory of this sacrosanct message from its Old Testament roots to its unveiling in the New Testament.

I personally look forward to seeing there.

God’s grace to you and yours.

Should a New Testament Believer Pay Tithe?

tithing

There are two major reasons people give in their defense against paying tithe. The first is that it is an Old Testament practice. The second is that there is no record of it as a New Testament practice.

Both arguments are wrong.
Let’s look at some New Testament scriptures that point to the relevance of tithe in the New Testament.

Eat the tithe?

Eat the tithe?

The idea that the believer is meant to eat his or her tithe instead if giving it to church is based on a major misconception. In the Old Testament, there were three sorts of tithes to be paid from the people, besides those from the Levites to the priests;

Between the Light and the Lies

“And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed.  But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
John 3:19-21 NKJV

If the evidence the opposition threatens to present frightens you, then you have something sinister to hide.

I am sure you are wondering where I am going with this. Well, here it is. A friend sent me a link to a ‘once saved, forever saved’ post seeking my thoughts on the it.

The Question of ‘Once Saved Forever Saved’ Part 3: What does grace look like in the context of scripture?

Does grace overlook it when we sin? No, it doesn’t. The Scripture says;

“…Whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.” Matthew 5:22 NKJV

And again, in James it says;

“Whoever keeps the whole Law but stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it”. James 2:10 Berean Study Bible (More on these verses in my next post, because I know how these verses are easily labeled ‘Old Testament in nature’).

With that said, we need to understand the position of grace in relation to sin, so, let’s look at a profound verse in Romans:

The Question of ‘Once Saved, Forever Saved’ Part 2: Why most people beat about the bush when debating ‘hyper-grace’

In my first post about this doctrine of ‘once saved, forever saved’, I said that many are poorly equipped to fight this error. So, in order for us to be better equipped, I spoke about the fundamentals of their philosophy of ‘grace’, so that we know what we’re up against. In this post, I want to speak about another factor that many lack which makes them ill-equipped to contend for the true gospel of grace – it is the rules of engagement which should govern us in this ‘civil war’ in Christianity.
