    Hi Paul…

  2. Hello there…
    I have extreme anxiety and fear because i am caught in work based religion… i fear everything and once i figured something out, something else comes and just knocks me down again… now i feel my heart is hardened because of all the anxiety… i am extremely afraid that i cannot trust Jesus because of my lack of feelings… is there still hope? Because i have very strong strongholds built inside my heart because of the lies i believed from the enemy… i am very afraid of my heart’s condition…

  3. Hello,
    I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to access the Scripture Index. Each time I click on a particular Scripture reference a message appears that “Safari can’t open the page…” I really do want to read about Luke 16: 1-8, as well as many other passages. I’m older and not very tech-savvy at all. How can I read your thoughts on this parable, which has puzzled me for many years, particularly Verse 8? Thanks for any help. Sorry if this is not the right place for this question or if the answer is somewhere else on your site.

    • Hi Sue, Sorry you’ve been having problems. Have you tried accessing the links from other browsers? I am not an Apple user, so I can’t test this myself, but I can assure you the index works fine with Chrome, FF, and IE. In the meantime, here is the article you’re looking for.

    Hello Paul,

    Thanks for being such a blessing to so many people in the world today. We are so glad that you took a rest after being burned out in Hong Kong. That decision to rest has been a huge benefit for some of us who may have never gone to Hong Kong to hear you preach. (With such a busy life, what did you preach anyway?)

    We are a missionary couple, stationed in Liberia, West Africa, in a small city call Kakata. One day, while searching on the internet about communion, we came across one of your articles. The rest is history.
    We primarily work with churches preaching GRACE and God’s unconditional love for ALL people.
    Liberia is a poor country. Lots of people have no TVs to watch. Radio is the primary means people get their news. Most preachers who teach on the radio teach LAW and the anger of God. There are churches all over the place, but Elijah and Moses are more admired than Jesus. We hear people praying all night for the Holy Spirit fire to destroy their enemies.

    Two years ago, we start preaching grace, love and righteousness on the radio. We have largely used your materials on the internet. When we went to the USA, we ordered your Hyper GRACE Gospel book and gave it as a gift to some of the pastors who have embraced the GRACE GOSPEL. They tell us that the book is so rich that they cannot just rush through it. These pastors say that your book is like a fruit from the tree of life. You eat it very slowly so that you can relish every taste that your taste buds come in contact with.

    Ordinary people see us on the streets and thank us for telling them that God is not holding their sins against them. People were tired of the burdens of the law but did not know how to get off from that burden.

    On days that we cannot go to the radio stations, we play messages by Joseph Prince. People who hear the message of GRACE say that it makes them fall in love with Christ all over again.

    Thanks for putting your materials out there for all to have. You are influencing people you will never meet on this side of heaven.

    Thanks for being a blessing.

    • Hi Caleb and Monika. Thanks for writing. It’s wonderful hearing what God is doing in Liberia. If you need more copies of The Hyper-Grace Gospel, just let me know.
      Blessings,
      Paul

        Hi Paul,
        Thanks for for being a blessing to so many of us out there. In my last email to you, I told you about how we use your articles extensively on our daily radio program. I also told you that we bought and distributed your book, “The Hypergrace Gospel”, to some local pastors. It has been a great blessing to them. Pastors and congregations are changing as we preach God’s GRACE in the person of His son Jesus.

        A few months ago, you offered to send us some of The Hypergrace Gospel books if we needed some. Sending us items to Liberia can be very difficult. So, we normally ask friends to bring us items when they come to visit us from the USA…

      • Hi guys, I just sent you an email. Check your spam folder if you can’t find it.

      • M. Caleb Sannoh // January 23, 2020 at 1:29 pm //

        Hi Paul,
        Thanks so very much for sending us 5 copies of your book, “The Hypergrace Gospel.” The books got to our director before he left from the USA to come visit us in Liberia. A church invited us to talk to them about GRACE. We gladly accepted the offer. We used your materials to do a side by side comparison of Grace & Law. At the end of the service, we gave one of your book to the pastor. We encouraged him and his congregation to go to your website and learn more about Grace.

        We are normally on the radio 5 days a week, preaching and teaching GRACE to our listeners. I am so glad that we listened to the promptings of the Lord to teach on the radio instead of opening a church. We are reaching more people via radio than we could have if we were confined to a church building. Pastors who invite us to preach in their churches are not afraid to do so because they know that we will not steal their sheep.

        I have read your story about pastoring a church in Hong Kong. You influenced people who may be influencing others at this time. But you listening to God’s leading to have a website has allowed you to reach far greater number of people than you probably would have if you had stayed in a church building. Of course I am guessing.

        Bottom line: You are reaching people and being a blessing to people you will never meet on this side of heaven. Thanks Paul!

        Caleb & Monika.

      • Thank you, Caleb. I’m glad you got the books in time. We weren’t sure that you would. Thanks for the encouragement. You are doing a great work in Liberia.

  5. Thank you Paul for being a fellow enjoyer of God’s over-the-top love and grace, which unfortunately many so-called Christians throw stones at in their blind zeal and self generated righteousness. Sometimes I really get mad that folks make little of the finished work of Christ and want to mix in their own filthy and hypocritical religiosity, but then I realize I had once been consumed by the same displaced zeal and God had patiently taught me, bringing me to a place of realization that I was made to be a receiver and dependent of His grace, not a giver or impresser of God. I can only pray that other ‘Christians’ listen to the loving, still small voice of the Lord and relax in His love, knowing that everything, including eternity, is taken care of.

  6. God has used your spirit-inspired works to bless me and my circle of influence. The gospel in ten words has already become a classic for me. I hope that your hyper-grace ministries expands this year. I was happy to hear that you plan to publish a book addressed to women. I would as well embrace writings addressed to the age groups of children and teenagers. We currently use the Jesus Storybook Bible which is not bad. If there are already hypergrace-inspired reads, apps or tools, I would be grateful for recommendations. Best wishes!

    Paul (or any E2R staff), do you have any references or articles on speaking in tongues? I’m not particularly scared of it, and I don’t exactly feel confused by it, personally. But I get a little bit jolted by people strongly opposed to it and I feel like I don’t have answers for them as to why I think it’s important. Joseph Prince’s ministry says it’s for praying on your behalf when you don’t have words to pray. I don’t exactly exercise it myself, but I’m curious what findings you might have.

    Recently, the Church I attend had an Anointing service where teaching was given on “A Fresh Anointing with Fresh oil,” Psalm 92:10, followed by prayer ministry. I accept that we have an Anointing, 2 Cor 1:21, 1 Jn 2:20, 27, and to suggest that we need a fresh anointing implies at least to me that my present anointing from God has gone stale. Further, it is not New Covenant teaching. My verbal response (given in love of course) didn’t go down too well. However, the comeback was, “to be (being) filled with the Holy Spirit,” Eph 5:18, therefore the Old Covenant approach from Ps 92:10 is legit and reasonable. What would be your response to this classic Pentecostal approach please on “The Anointing.” Thx.

  9. Are there audio resources (sermons, sermon series, podcasts, etc, by Paul or others that effectively capture the essence of The Gospel in 10 Words?

    Hello Paul! I am mentoring a 17-year girl who is very confused about God. She sees Father as a rule maker and one who is demeaning to women. She says she is tempted to give up her faith. As I start to meet with her casually, I would like to read through a book with her. I’m wondering if you might be able to suggest one of your books that would be a good match. Although I read your articles faithfully, I have yet to purchase one of your books. (I hope to remedy that soon! 🙂 Thank you for all of your articles, your time and your passion for the person of Jesus Christ. It is infectious!

    • Hi Aleisha, on the subject of women, I highly recommend my next and still unfinished book. (It’s about God’s plan for women.) In the meantime, and to shatter a few sacred cows, I’d recommend Stuff Jesus Never Said or The Gospel in Twent Questions.

  11. If you believe in OSAS/Eternal Security how do you explain Heb 3:12?

    • Hi James, for my take on specific scriptures, please check out the Archives > Scripture Index. Thanks. And as long as you’re thinking about eternal security, don’t forget to check out these 90 scriptures guaranteeing the believer’s eternal security. Since you’re already in Hebrews, I recommend Hebrews 5:9.

  12. Hello my name is Israel your blog has been a good way to view God and how I should view my relationship with the Father.. It’s been difficult for me though I’ve had a lot of what ifs going through my mind and it’s been getting easier to ignore them.. Today though has been a particularly difficult day. I have this insane worry that somehow I’ll end up like those Gnostics.. I know I wasn’t blameless without Christ and the moment I believed in Jesus (even that faith is a work of God he comes.) I was saved.. Yet I get these worries like what if I didn’t understand the message? or what if I’m not blameless yet and I didn’t turn to Jesus? I still get these worries that I’ll miss out on God as though I’m standing on the edge just an inch away from the Kingdom.. I still struggle at times to avoid law-like behavior and these fears don’t help.. I know that Eternal life is simple to know The One True God and the One he sent… I’ve asked God to take these thoughts away because they just steal peace.. What do you think?

    Paul, I recall that some time ago you mentioned that if one was desiring to write a book you would be willing to give some ideas or tips. I would appreciate anything you might be willing to share.

    • Hi Garry, because I get asked this question a lot, I have compiled some practical and easy-to-follow notes pertaining to writing and publishing. You can find them on Patreon, which means it’ll set you back $5 I think. But since vanity presses will charge you $5000-8,5000 to do what I teach you to do, it’s a pretty good investment.

      • donbeeson // April 12, 2020 at 10:39 am //

        I know it’s off topic, but Happy Easter, Paul! And, yes, that $5 is definitely worth the investment 🙂 I just finished your Moody Redo. Thanks again for sending that out to us and to opening up grace to so many of us here : )

      • Happ Easter, Don.

  14. Just finished, “The Hyper Grace Gospel.” I have a question about Psalm 103:12 NIV, “…so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” This obviously was written long before the Cross. Do you suppose that since Christ was “the Lamb slain before the foundation of the world” Rev 13:8. That our salvation was secured by Grace before the foundation of the world and our sins separated from us long before Calvary?
    Ed Dower

    • We can see from God’s conversation with the serpent in Genesis 3, that his redemptive plan was not something he concocted on the fly to fix our mess, but was in his heart from the very beginning. Prophetic people in the Old Testament knew his heart and saw what was coming. Prophetic people in the New Testament looked back and realized Calvary had been in God’s mind all along.

    Dear Paul
    In your article ”About Dr.Paul Ellis” you wrote ”….it was an unsustainable lifestyle and eventually i crashed and burned….” can you please throw more light on how you crashed and burned and how you were forced to rest plus a good description of that place of inactivity and inability,i do think am in such a situation and place and i badly need your encouragement. Thank you so much.

    • Hi Shantelle, I should tell my story one day. The short version is I had a major burnout in my mid-30s and was unable to function for a while. I was forced to take a few months off, which was very hard for an over-achieving, sleep-when-you-die person like me. I was put on all sorts of meds, most of which had side effects worse than the thing they were trying to cure. It was a horrible, dark and scary time. Yet God revealed himself to me in new and amazing ways, and I came out a changed person. I became much better acquainted with grace. One thing that helped me – apart from a lot of prayer – was keeping a journal. A journal can bring perspective when you need it most.

    Hello, I donated to this great ministry on giving Tuesday. Always get a lot of good from it! I accidentally hit the monthly donation but cannot do that at this time. I haven’t gotten an email to set up the account either. How do I stop the monthly withdraw? Many thanks and God bless!

    Thanks for your help, that worked! Looking forward to supporting you on a monthly basis in the future!

    Paul,
    I love your books. I’ve used 2 of them for study purposes in Grace Groups that have met in my home. I’ve just finished writing a book, entitled “A New Covenant Understanding of At-One-Ment” that I’ve quoted you in two places: Chapter 9
    Limited Atonement, Unlimited Atonement, Universalism or New Covenant At-One-Ment? and in Appendix A Made or Being Made in the Image of God?
    The book is in early draft form and I’m seeking input from various people, including some of the authors that I quote. I’d like to send you pdf files of this early draft or the entire book. If so, what email address would I use. If you prefer a hard copy, send me a mailing address. If it’s outside the US, then the PDF would work better.
    Blessings in Christ.

    Hey, Mr. Paul! Blessings! And thanks for all you do for the Body of Christ! I cannot locate a way to acquire your Spanish book The Gospel in Ten Words. Could you please inform? Thanks so much!

  20. Hi Paul. I was wondering if you could compile a list of books about how much God loves us. I want to know Him as my loving Father, but I could use some help in finding a good book about how much He loves me.

      • Hi Paul. I am looking specifically for books on how much our Father loves us. I am not looking for books on Grace . If you could just recommend one or two just on His love for us I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

      • Scott, you speak as though these were discrete subjects. They are not. Grace is what God’s love looks like from our side. Everyone of these books reveals and revels in the love of God. For instance, the first chapter of The Gospel in Ten Words is entitled “Loved.” But since you mentioned knowing the Father’s love, why not start with Abba’s Child or Who’s Your Daddy? You can get the latter free here.

      • Thank you Paul I really appreciate it.
