Real saving grace is inseparably connected with the powers of heaven.
Real saving grace is always inseparably connected with the powers of Heaven. It is never just a contract that allows us to enter into heaven at a later point. By contrast, fake Grace offers a warm blanket now without requiring a change in behavior. Real grace ties us to the powers of heaven so we experience them here and now - it offers all men the light of Christ. Real grace offers the gift of the Holy Ghost. Real grace requires repentance and change, and is manifest now. Fake grace offers to save us the way we are. Fake grace does not make its offers in this life precisely because it has no power to save us in the next. It is by being connected to the powers of heaven in this life that we will find ourselves connected to them in the next.
