Grace Revolution by Joseph Prince

For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.-Romans 6:14


This is not just another book.  This book is full of Biblical truths that will change the Body of Christ, and help us to function the way Jesus intends for us to function.

In Joseph Prince's new book, Grace Revolution, Joseph shares freedom for the Believer in Christ. The purpose of the book is to demonstrate grace and truth in our relationship to Jesus.

In this book you will find testimonies of people whose lives have been changed because they discovered grace in the scriptures that was there all the time.  There is a lot of teaching in the book, as well a breakdown of Hebrew and Greek words

The reader will also discover the difference between law and grace.  Jesus is the fulfillment of the law for believers.  He fulfilled the law for us with His death.

Sections of the book include:

* Grow in Boldness and Confidence
* Build a Foundation for Lasting Breakthroughs
* Value the Person of Jesus
* Speak the Language of Faith
* Receive His Abundant Restoration

A few important Scriptures to know are:

* Romans 6:14
* Romans 5:18-19
* Romans 10:9-13
* John 1:17
* 1 John 1:12

I don't think I have ever written or underlined or written in another book as much as this one.  Here's a few passages that were underlined:

"A life that is founded upon the gospel of Jesus Christ is unshakable." 

"The grace revolution is all about Jesus.  There is no revolution of grace without the cross. What our beloved Lord Jesus accomplished at Calvary has made all the difference.  The cross put an end to the old covenant and kick-started the new covenant of grace.  What began on a hill in Jerusalem is now a revolution that has spread to the ends of the earth  Today the gospel of grace is preached with power, boldness, and authority like never before."

"You are not alone in your boat.  Listen to Him and do exactly what He tells you to do."

"Beloved, just because you don't know the Bible from cover to cover, don't be intimidated by learned theologians who use very high-sounding theological words to impress or intimidate you.  The gospel of grace is so simple that even fishermen like Peter, who were not as highly educated as the Pharisees, could grasp it. And yet it could also confound the most intellectual scholars in Jerusalem then."

I could go on and on.

Just a short testimony from me.  I started listening to Joseph Prince around late 2007 or early 2008.  I was raised in the church, and had gotten saved at an early age. I went out into the world, and didn't come back to Jesus (much like the prodigal son) until Jesus sought me out in my early twenties. Even though I had those experiences, I still didn't feel really secure in my relationship to Him until I started listening to Joseph Prince.  After I started listening to him teach, I actually felt like a Christian, a real Christian, like those from the book of Acts.  We should all feel that way.

As I continue to listen to the teachings on grace, and read the stories of Jesus in my Bible, and see them for what they really are, my peace increases. Jesus said "you will know the truth and the truth will set you free." (John 8:32) And it is-the truth is continually setting me free, more and more.

It took me a long time to get through this book.  It is not a quick read.  There are so many truths from God's Word, that you will want to stop occasionally to let it soak in.  It will increase your faith, and give you peace. When I was finished, I wanted to go back to the beginning and start again.  Once you hear about the goodness of God in Jesus, you want to keep hearing about it again and again.

Grace Revolution would be a great group Bible study tool, for new believers, and those who have been walking with God for a while.  I recommend this book to everybody, so you can feel safe and secure in your relationship with Christ.

Many blessings to you as you continue to "grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." (2 Peter 3:18)
