“Going into his presence” is an Old Covenant concept.

The Gospel is not about a life time of preserving your salvation. It is about your perfect salvation preserving you.

The Gospel is not about a God who is ignorant that we will still sin after receiving Jesus. We preach hell fire to people who sin, not realizing the following:

a) You too will continue to sin;
b) I will continue to sin:
c) The difference between you and I and them is that they are found out and we are not;
d) Their sins are rejected while ours are “accepted”;
e) God knows very well you will continue to sin. He is not ignorant.

Let me simplify it for you, if God gave you a Gospel that can be tainted by sin, he must either be not all knowing or not all powerful. You call people who teach grace “heretics”, but what should I call you who just called God “ignorant”?

Here are 4 things you may not know about yourself that God has done for you:

Colossians 1:22
Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.

a) You have been reconciled to God himself;
b) You have brought into his own presence;
c) You are holy and blameless an without a single fault: and
d) You are now standing before him face to face.

I think it’s high time, we stop asking God to bring us into his presence. We are just asking him to do what he is already done. It’s time we know and claim this.

  1. I always say many people are taking themselves to HELL even after being saved by the precious blood of JESUS only to trample it down..and thinkin by doing good or keeping the law they can enter heaven..so sad because if righteousness comes from the law then christ died in vain..
