For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, NOT a result of works so that no one can boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
God is love, and His new testament of grace is eternal, infinite and immeasurable. The bible calls His grace hyper, mega, great and stacks grace upon grace for those who receive Jesus Christ. The gospel is called the gospel of grace and the word of His grace. God’s grace is eternal and unending and will never fade away! There is absolutely no limit or balance to God’s grace!
For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. (John 1:16)
Now the law in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace HYPER-ABOUNDED all the more (Romans 5:20)
The greek word Huper is where we get our english word hyper and means, beyond or above.
The greek word perisseuó means to be over and above, to abound.
So where sin increases, God’s grace hyper abounds! His grace is beyond HYPER-GRACE!
His grace comes in ABUNDANCE...
...those who receive the ABUNDANCE of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:17)
His grace is great and large, MEGAS...
And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and MEGAS grace was upon them all. (Acts 4:33)
Greek word “Megas” means large, great, in the widest sense.
As it is plain above, we all need a revelation of the hyper, mega, abundant and unending grace of God in our lives. When we look around, it appears as though disorder and chaos are running rampant in the earth. Sin and the domain of darkness are still very much at work in the earth, and it can be discouraging at times. The domain of darkness can look like an insurmountable mountain, but as Romans 5:20 states “where sin increases, grace hyper abounds all the more!”
God’s grace is all-sufficient, and the light will completely dispel all darkness on the earth. Sin, sickness, death, disorder, chaos, all evil and everything under the domain of darkness are destined for complete and total obliteration! The mountain of sin, sickness, death, chaos and every evil thing will be leveled by the Holy Spirit through those who believe in the good news of Jesus Christ.
Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘GRACE, GRACE’ to it!’” (Zechariah 4:6-7)
