God's Purpose in Grace by Pastor Tom Bruscha

GRACE -- God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense!

This is a marvelous study!  It is the second time I hear it, and it is still so very enlightening!  Actually, I just had answered something about which I have wondered!  Amazing how he knit-picks everything!  Awesome!  Please click on the appropriate links to hear.

Let no corrupt communication 
proceed out of your mouth, 
but that which is good to the use of edifying, 
that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
Ephesians 4:29 (King James Bible)

In His Time

For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God 
which is given me to you-ward:
How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; 
(as I wrote afore in few words,
Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge 
in the mystery of Christ)
Which in other ages was not made known unto 
the sons of men, as it is now revealed 
unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, 
and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
Whereof I was made a minister, according 
to the gift of the grace of God given unto me 
by the effectual working of his power.
Ephesians 3:3-7 (King James Bible)

Pastor Tom has compiled 10 purposes for God's Grace, which he explains throughout the three sermons:

1)  That we be saved
2)  That we might know the love of Christ, which surpasses all knowledge
3)  We should be for the praise of His glory
4)  That He might take Satan at his own craftiness
5)  That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow
6)  That Jesus Christ be pre-eminent in all things
7)  Spoil the principalities and powers, and make a show of them, openly
8)  That the principalities and powers might know the manifold wisdom of God
9)  We've been alive together in Christ, by GRACE are we saved, and made to sit in heavenly places in Christ, that in the ages to come He might show the riches of His Grace
10) To fulfill what He had purposed in Himself to accomplish in the Dispensation of Grace

Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
11 Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.
2 Timothy 1:6-11 (King James Bible)

Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
1 Corinthians 2:6-8 (King James Bible)

Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.
Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
12 In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
Ephesians 3:5-12 (King James Bible)

Revelaion 12
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Revelation 12:1-17 (King James Bible)
