christine's bible study

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. Isa 40:8

grace in the old testament

I believe that both testaments of the Holy Scriptures are in complete harmony with each other and teach the same message: that right behavior or actions (sanctification or obedience to God) is an outcome of true faith, and that only true faith produces righteousness or right- standing (salvation or justification) before God, not works of obedience. I believe that the gospel of grace is preached without alteration from Genesis through Revelation. I believe that there is one God, one gospel, one faith, one message inspired by the one Spirit, and one people of God from Genesis through Revelation. I believe that God expressed as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is eternal and unchanging, the same yesterday, today, and forever. I believe that His Word is true from Genesis to Revelation, and that none of it has passed away nor will pass away until all is fulfilled.

As such, I believe that Moses and the Prophets are not in opposition to Jesus and the apostles, but that Moses and the Law preaches salvation by grace through faith, and not by works of the Law, lest any man should boast.
