Oops! They must have missed that part!
Further, Wilkerson writes, "Beloved, I preach without reservation that justification and righteousness come by faith alone. I am saved by faith, made righteous by faith and kept by faith in Christ's blood. That is the very foundation of the gospel and of true grace preaching. But not all faith is justifying faith! The Bible clearly speaks of two kinds of faith: one that justifies, and another that is of no value - a faith that even the devils exercise!
The book of Acts records that Simon the magician "believed" but his faith was not the justifying kind. "Simon himself believed also: and... he was baptized" (Acts 8:13). Simon offered the apostle Peter money to get the power of the Holy Ghost - but Peter answered, "I perceive that thou art in the gall of bitterness, and in the bond of iniquity" (verse 23) He was saying, "Your heart is still bound by sin!" Peter told Simon that without repentance both he and his money would perish! Indeed, Simon believed - but he was not made the righteousness of God in Christ! His faith was not justifying faith - the kind that purifies the heart and brings the righteousness of Christ!
A little further, he writes, "For faith to be justifying, there has to be an accompanying desire to obey and be faithful to God! This kind of faith contains a vital force - a principle of everlasting obedience and love for God. Anything short of that is a dead, temporary faith. It does not produce the true benefits of grace - but instead it mocks grace!"
I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that the very person who is beating the Joseph Prince drum is the one who is sending this article to people, supposedly to support the new found freedom she has found in grace... but she has not read, or at least not understood that David Wilkerson SOUNDLY refutes the false teachings of Joseph Prince in this article!
I invite you all, read this article The Gospel of Grace and be SET FREE from the chains that Joseph Prince and his teaching are wrapping around you! PLEASE! I beg you! READ IT!
Wilkerson reaches out from his grave and once more preaches the truth when he says that "Many "Grace" preachers do away with the Law before it can do it's work of convicting of sin!" Adam was given the gospel of grace - after his "eyes were opened" (see Genesis 3:7). It was only after he had seen his pitiful condition and the consequences of his sin that God brought to him the message of mercy and hope! This is why modern-day grace preaching is not changing sinful hearts: because it does not open the eyes of the sinful! There is no guilt, no shame, no sorrow for sin. Pardon for sin is being offered to people who do not even admit they are sinful! They are offered justification for sins they have never felt guilty of committing... deliverance when they don't even know they are bound... righteousness for which they do not hunger or thirst... freedom from a holy wrath they don't know rests upon them!" (Emphasis mine)
Again, I implore you, read it all. Compare what David Wilkerson said about grace to the pathetic version of grace that is being offered up by Prince and his followers. Turn away from this teaching! If someone else continues to embrace it and will not heed the truth, then turn away from them, for they will lead you down a path to destruction!
