God put a new concept in my mind today to share on this forum.
What is Anti - Grace? Is there such a thing??
In order to understand anti - grace you must understand "True Grace".
I see two different definitions for grace in the Bible.
The OT according to the Strong's Greek and Hebrew Dictionary defines Grace as "graciousness, that is, subjectively (kindness, favor) or objectively (beauty)".
I see this definition of grace under the old covenant of the Law of Moses chiseled in stone.
Jesus came to fulfill the Law. God now looks on our minds and what we meditate on before it actually becomes a legal action. Jeremiah 31:33 says "I will put My law within them, and I will write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they will be My people."
Is this possibly the reason for the NT addition to the definition and understanding of a new covenant kind of "Grace"???
Here is the Strong's NT definition for God's Grace. Grace, "graciousness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the divine influence upon the heart, and its reflection in the life; including gratitude):"
It is from this definition of NT "Grace" that the word "Anti Grace" came to my mind.
Here is the definition which is the opposite or the definition which is totally against God's Divine Influence in our hearts and minds which is "Real Grace".
Un-graciousness or crudeness (as gratifying), of manner or act (abstract or concrete; literal, figurative or spiritual; especially the world’s influence upon the feelings, the will and even the intellect, and the reflection of the world, consequently, in the life; including dissatisfaction and rebellion):
