Episode 15 – The Grace of Jesus Part 2

In the last several posts we have focused on the gift of grace of the Father, the gift of Jesus. “For God so loved the world he gave His only Son…” Then we looked at the gift of grace of Jesus– the gift of the Holy Spirit.“I will not leave you as orphans, but I will send you another Helper like me”. Before we look at the gift of the grace of the Holy Spirit- which would be spiritual gifts we want to look deeper at the gift of Jesus- the Holy Spirit and the function of the Holy Spirit in...


Episode 014 The Grace of Jesus Christ

Our God is a gift-giving God. We are continuing in the theme of the Grace of God. In the last post, we mentioned the Trinity and that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are One. All three parts of the Godhead share the same nature and that is the nature of Grace. God’s grace can be described as salvation, mercy, compassion, favor, and kindness. All of these are given by God not because we have earned or deserved grace, but because God’s grace is a gift. God’s grace is the...


013 – The Gifts of God!

In the previous episode, we examined the keywords in Ephesians 2:8-9. The words were grace, saved, faith, gift, works, and boast. Today we will examine Grace and Faith as they relate to each other and how they relate to God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Show More The Word Grace in the Greek is “Charis” from which we get “Charisma” which means spiritual gift. The word grace is used throughout the New Testament and speaks to the character and nature of God. God is a...


012 – Grace, Faith and Salvation

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast”. This brief statement in Ephesians 2:8-9 is the message of the Gospel or the “Good News” in a nutshell! Upon this statement hinges your salvation and life in Christ. Today we are going to examine this statement more closely especially the six words; grace, saved, faith, gift, works, and boast. Show More This is “Pastor Vic’s Nuggets of Truth”,...


011 What is True Faith?

Since faith is essential in our relationship with Jesus Christ it is so important to understand what faith is, and what it is not. Show More Faith in the original Greek is “pistis” and a Bible Dictionary defines faith as; persuasion, credence, moral conviction, assurance, belief or, fidelity. Faith is Spiritual In our last post we looked at the definition given by Hebrews 11:1, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. So, faith for a Christian is...


010 What is Faith?

Over the last several episodes we have been talking about the different ways in which we can hear from God. The Holy Spirit of God is able to reveal Himself in the following ways: Show More Hearing God, then what? As God reveals His will or plan to us, what are we to do with what we know? The simple answer is to “just do it”! In the late ’80s and early ’90s, a well-known slogan for Nike Sneakers was used to almost triple their sales for Nike sneakers. It was, “JUST DO IT!”. In other words,...


009- God’s Circumstances and Opportunities

In previous episodes, I have been concentrating on the different ways God is able to communicate with us. Another way that the Holy Spirit can communicate God’s plan is by ordering the circumstances in our lives. These circumstances are often opportunities to fulfill God’s plan for your life! Show More Thomas A. Edison said, “The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work”. The challenges that God puts before...


008 Is Prophecy for Today?

What is Prophecy? Prophecy is found throughout the Bible from Genesis, the first book of the Bible to the Book of Revelation the last book of the Bible. One of the ways in which God speaks to us prophecy. When God uses prophecy to speak to us He uses an individual to speak for Him. Those that are called to do this are called prophets. Prophecy is another way in which God makes His will known to mankind. Show More What Prophecy is not. Prophecy is one of those terms in Christianity that...


007 Personal Revelation

God has made it abundantly clear that He wants and has enabled two-way communication between Himself and His creation, mankind. As a matter of fact, Jesus Himself said that He knows His own and His people hear His voice and follow Him (John 10:7-21). Show More Then the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2, 9 But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But (and a very big but)...


006: No Logos Word, No Rhema.

God L Us It is clear from the Bible that God loves us, God’s love is demonstrated for us, not by words, but by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for our sins. It was our sins that separated us from God, now through Jesus that separation has been removed. God’s love for us is so unique that it is said that God is love, In other words, He doesn’t just love, He is love! This love He has for us is not a sentimental or emotional kind of love. His kind of love is unconditional, in the Greek...


005: Hearing God’s Voice

I want to repeat a little of what I said in episode 0 regarding the process of going from knowledge to wisdom about God. It will help in establishing a foundation for understanding what it means to hear the voice of God. Wisdom in a general sense is that quality of making sound judgments that, on a personal level, lead to peace, harmony and a better quality of life or outcome. You can gain wisdom by trial and error or you can trust in the wisdom that comes from God’s word, the Bible. Show...


004: The Bible a Spiritual Book

In our last post, we mentioned that the work of God's Holy Spirit is from the inside out. You are being transformed and, in the process, trusting more and more in Jesus. Trusting in Jesus is what faith is all about!

Episode 0, What Pastor Vic’s Nuggets is about

In life there is nothing more frustrating that believing something and not knowing why! The expression “ignorance is bliss” may be true, but it can also lead to some pretty bad decisions.
