Welcome, to the new format of Grace For Living Magazine (Digital Edition). We are a semi-annual publication featuring topics of God's Kingdom lifestyle. Christianity was never meant to be a religion. It is a way of Kingdom living; a way of loving and sharing with our fellow man.
Our magazine features articles that empower individuals and families to reach God's highest potential for their lives. God has given us His Grace (supernatural wisdom and power) to live our best lives in today's world.

We often think that we know best for our lives, but we what we know is limited by our experiences.
We don't know enough to have the very best that God has to offer.
The prophet Jeremiah quotes God saying,
"For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord,
thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil,
to give you hope in your final outcome (Jeremiah 29:11)."
Think about it. God has a plan for our welfare and our peace, and it's not for evil. There may be evil in the world, but it's not from God.
It comes from men who don't know God, or His Plan for their lives.
You see, when men (and women, boys and girls) don't know that God has a good plan for their lives, then they will believe the evil plans they see in the news, or in movies, or even the evil they see in their daily lives. Those things may be in the world, but they don't have to shape our reality. You can get to know God and His plan for your life today. Just ask Him in prayer.
Although the world may be suffering, God's Kingdom brings peace in the midst of suffering, and you don't have to wait until Heaven.
You can have Days of Heaven Upon The Earth!
There seems to be chaos in the world around us. Poverty and lack are escalating. Political fighting, racial division, human degradation are on the increase, as the climate violently reacts. What does it mean?
There is a shifting going on;
a violent change of direction for the entire planet.
The Earth Is Preparing For The Return Of Jesus Christ.
" And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."
Matthew 24:4-14 KJV
Gone are the days of doing what we want to do in this earth. God gave us time to get it right, now He is taking back the earth for His Purpose. Mankind has destroyed this planet and degraded its people, not being grateful to the God who gave us life and breath.
This earth is not ours. It belongs to God. "The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it (Psalm 24:1 AMPC)."
God made us caretakers of this earth and its people. We have failed miserably. There are claims of climate change, but few claims are made concerning the state of mankind spiritually. We've disconnected from our Creator God, and therefore have disconnected from our true purpose on earth. We were created for God's Purpose, not our own. We did not create ourselves.
God alone is Creator.
"Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive the glory and the honor and dominion, for You created all things; by Your will they were [brought into being] and were created (Revelation 4:11) AMPC."
SO HOW DO WE PREPARE FOR JESUS' RETURN?
REPENT! Change your mind and change your direction.
Ask Forgiveness! Turn your heart back to God's way of being right.
Seek His Face! Find out God's Will for your life and get in it today.
ASK Jesus to be the Lord of your life. Let The Holy Spirit to guide you into all truth (John 16:14). Let Him teach you God's ways every day.
