“Granted - Part 2”

Blessings Folk!

Be certain to read Part 1

Grace has been granted us.
Purpose has been granted us.
Everything pertaining to life and godliness has been granted to us.
His precious and magnificent promises have been granted to us.
We have been granted to be partakers in the Divine Nature.
We have been granted the ability to believe in Him.
We are also sometimes granted suffering.

We see throughout the history of God’s creation that He has granted.

God granted an inheritance to Abraham…

Galatians 3
18 For if the inheritance is based on law, it is no longer based on a promise; but God has granted it to Abraham by means of a promise.

God granted men to Paul…

Acts 27
23 For this very night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood before me,
24 saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must stand before Caesar; and behold, God has granted you all those who are sailing with you.’
25 Therefore, keep up your courage, men, for I believe God that it will turn out exactly as I have been told.

Their ship was in danger.
The sea was rough.
But, the Lord had a purpose for Paul and sent an angel to confirm…

  • fear not
  • you must stand before Caesar

God granted to the Gentiles also the repentance that leads to life.

Acts 11

17 Therefore if God gave to them the same gift as He gave to us also after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I that I could stand in God’s way?”
18 When they heard this, they quieted down and glorified God, saying, “Well then, God has granted to the Gentiles also the repentance that leads to life.”

(We would do well to read the extended passages of the Word...amazing things here&hellipWinking

God granted that Jesus be visible after His resurrection…
Note to who He appeared…

Acts 10
39 We are witnesses of all the things He did both in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They also put Him to death by hanging Him on a cross.
40 God raised Him up on the third day and granted that He become visible,
41 not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.

God grants favor with the powers that be…

Acts 7
 9 “The patriarchs became jealous of Joseph and sold him into Egypt. Yet God was with him,
10 and rescued him from all his afflictions, and granted him favor and wisdom in the sight of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, and he made him governor over Egypt and all his household.

Salvation/Faith/Belief are only possible because they have been granted by Father…

John 6
64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who it was that would betray Him.
65 And He was saying, “For this reason I have said to you, that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted him from the Father.”

Mark 11
22 And Jesus *answered saying to them, “Have faith in God.
23 Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him.
24 Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.
25 Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions.
26 [But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.”]

“The Twelve” were giving to eat and drink at the Lord’s table in His kingdom and to sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel…

Luke 22
28 “You are those who have stood by Me in My trials;
29 and just as My Father has granted Me a kingdom, I grant you
30 that you may eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and you will sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

We have been granted to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God…

Luke 8
10 And He said, “ To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is in parables, so that SEEING THEY MAY NOT SEE, AND HEARING THEY MAY NOT UNDERSTAND.

Matthew 13
11 Jesus answered them, “ To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.


Have Faith.
Pray in the will of the Father.
Rejoice and live in in all that Father has granted through the Lord Jesus.

We have all we need.
