VERSION 1 WE ARE ALL SAINTS BY HIS GRACE
In Christ, every born again Christians are saints through His grace. The moment one believes in Jesus, he is a saint. Please read the verses from Bible to understand what bible tells about us. Some Churches declares few dead saints as saints in order to raise more funds as these saints are
main sources of the income of Church. Now you do not need a Bishop to declare you as a saint, if you are born again Christian, you are a saint by His grace. Here is the hidden treasure in the Bible for you. Read the verses to understand what Bible tells about you:-

Eph 1:15 Therefore, because I have heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints,
Eph 1:18 Then, with the eyes of your hearts enlightened, you will know the hope of his calling, the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints,
Eph 2:19 That is why you are no longer strangers and foreigners but fellow citizens with the saints and members of God's household,

Act 9:41 He gave her his hand and helped her up. Then he called the saints and widows and gave her back to them alive.
Rev 22:21 May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen. If you have understood that you are also a saint, his grace will be with you till the end otherwise it will not remain.
A saint is a holy person but by his grace alone. ἅγιος (Holy)hagios hag'-ee-os From ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) sacred (physically pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially consecrated): - (most) holy (one, thing), saint.
2Co 1:1 From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, to the church of God that is in Corinth, with all the holy people throughout Achaia.
Eph 1:1 From Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by God's will, to his holy and faithful people in Ephesus who are in union with Christ Jesus. Eph 2:21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises into a holy sanctuary in the Lord.
Eph 5:26 so that he might make it holy by cleansing it, washing it with water and the word, Eph 5:27 and might present the church to himself in all its glory, without a spot or wrinkle or anything of the kind, but holy and without fault.
Php 1:1 From Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, to all the holy ones in Philippi who are united with Christ Jesus, with their overseers and deacons.
Col 1:2 to the holy and faithful brothers in Colossae who are in union with Christ. May grace and peace from God our Father be yours!
Col 1:22 he has now reconciled by the death of his physical body so that he might present you holy, blameless, and without fault before him.
Col 3:12 Therefore, as God's chosen ones, holy and loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.
1Ti 2:8 Therefore, I want the men to offer prayers in every place, lifting up holy hands without being angry or argumentative. (your hands are holy)
Heb 3:1 Therefore, holy brothers, partners in a heavenly calling, keep your focus on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession.
1Pe 1:15 Instead, just as the one who called you is holy, be holy in every aspect of your life. (Holy people should remain holy)
1Pe 2:9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people to be his very own and to proclaim the wonderful deeds of the one who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
1Pe 2:5 you, too, as living stones, are building yourselves up into a spiritual house and a holy priesthood, so that you may offer spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Jud 1:14 Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied about these people when he said, "Look! The Lord has come with countless thousands of his holy ones. (not only the few declared by Churches)
Rev 22:11 Let the one who does what is evil continue to do evil, and let the filthy person continue to be filthy, and the righteous person continue to do what is right, and the holy person continue to be holy."
A Saint is a person who is sanctified by the blood of Jesus. ἁγιάζω-sanctify-hagiazō-hag-ee-ad'-zo to make holy, that is, (ceremonially) purify or consecrate; (mentally) to venerate: - hallow, be holy, sanctify. Joh 17:17 Sanctify them by the truth. Your word is truth. (we are sanctified by the word of God)
1Co 6:11 That is what some of you were! But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (we are sanctified in the name of Jesus and in the Spirit)
Act 26:18 You will open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light and from Satan's control to God, so that they might receive the forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified by faith in me.' (we are sanctified by faith in Christ Jesus)
Rom 15:16 to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that the offering of the gentiles might be acceptable because it has been sanctified by the Holy Spirit. (we are sanctified by Holy Spirit).
Heb 10:29 How much more severe a punishment do you think that person deserves who tramples on God's Son, treats as common the blood of the covenant by which it was sanctified, and insults the Spirit of grace? (we are sanctified by blood of Jesus)
Heb 10:10 By his will we have been sanctified once for all through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ. (we are sanctified once for all and need not be declared by church)
2Th 2:13 At all times we are obligated to thank God for you, brothers who are loved by the Lord, because God chose you to be the first fruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and through faith in the truth.
When we are sanctified by, word of God, name of Jesus, blood of Jesus, faith and Holy Spirit, who needs to be declared as a saint by human being? God has already declared and needs no human consent.
1Co 1:2 to the church of God in Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who continually call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ-their Lord and ours.
Act 20:32 "I am now entrusting you to God and to the message of his grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all who are sanctified.
1Pe 1:2 the people chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father through the sanctifying work of the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus Christ and to be sprinkled with his blood. May grace and peace be yours in abundance!
Heb 13:12 That is why Jesus, in order to sanctify the people by his own blood, also suffered outside the city gate. ἅγιος (Saint)hagios,hag'-ee-os ἅγιος (Holy)hagios, hag'-ee-os ἁγιάζω-sanctify-hagiazō-hag-ee- ad'-zo
Is it biblical to Pray to the saints. We have seen that a saint is a saint by grace alone and not by their quality. We are all saints by grace. The dead saints were mere human beings but filled with Holy Spirit like us. The dead saints were never been Omni-present and never ever will be. They can never listen
to the prayers of any saints on the earth. Without Gods permission neither any one can go to paradise (2Cor 12:1-6) nor some one from Heaven can come to earth. As soon as they leave their body on earth, they are taken to Paradise and never come back. (Luke 23:43).
The most important point is that Jesus loved us and came down to earth and died for us. He is nearer than your cloth and if you are born again, He is in you. Praying to saints are like my son calling my distant relative in a foreign country to recommend something for him to me. You can imagine how much
it will hurt my feelings when my son is already staying with me. What is that type of relationship? That is what Christians are doing. The saints are resting in paradise without even knowing what is going on on earth.
-God is Father for all true Christians. No one is more closer to you than Him. -We have permission to go to His presence 24x365 days. Why do you want to go to some one who never died for you?
- Is their any word in New Testament which permit you to pray to saints? - Now you decide whether it is biblical to pray to saints and spend money for ungodly activity which angers God?
Bible says that there is no mediator for us other than Jesus. (1Ti 2:5 Heb 9:15 Heb 12:24 ). 1Ti 2:5 For there is one God, one mediator (there is no second mediator) also between God and men, himself man, Christ Jesus,
Heb 12:24 and to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaketh better than that of Abel.
Heb 9:15 And for this cause he is the mediator of a new covenant, that a death having taken place for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first covenant, they that have been called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
-Do you want to believe word of God which declares around 70 times that you are a saint or the Church that has a false teaching? It is a true incident. One servant of God in Tamilnadu in India went to a meeting and one evil spirit appeared in a lady.
When asked by the servant of God about the name of the spirit, it told him that its name is mother Mary. So he told the spirit that Mary is sitting in heaven and you cannot be Mary. So it was asked to tell its true name.
Then she told the correct name of the evil spirit. It was a famous name of an evil spirit of that place. (2Co 11:14 And no wonder, since Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.)
When I discussed with one brother, he was telling me that he does sins even though he tries for a holy life. So the saints were more holier than him and God listens to them than this brother.
Actually I felt pity for him who does not know his position in Christ. He does not know what he is, how much God loves him, how much God cares for him. Bible says our good works are like a white clothe with stains. No man including the saints were not perfect.
Only Jesus is perfect. He stood in our place of sinner and took the punishment. We were placed in His position and as a saint by grace, going towards Everlasting life. You must know the fact that we have clothed Christ and God does not see you but Christ over you.
That is why He listens to you. If you are still depend on your good works, you are not believing in the work of Jesus for you. You are still trying to get something from God through your work which is considered as a sin.
Your good works are not for pleasing God, but it is the fruit of Holy Spirit through you. You can never ever please God by your works because what ever you do, you are still a sinner. So do not be depressed and go to saints for mediation,
but believe that God loves you particularly and you are in the same level of holiness with them. You know why God created man on earth? He created man to live with him personally. He does not want you to go to some one but He wants to talk to you directly and stay with you. whether you like Him or not, He loves you. May God bless you.
I think now you know about saintliness of a true Christian by grace alone through faith. If you think the word of God is wrong, you can delete this presentation. And if you are thinking it is correct, and if you love Jesus, kindly forward it to your friends who does not know the truth. Your brother in Christ Jesus to tell you the truth Saint Biju Kovoor, Tiruvalla (Kovoor Ninan Eipe-Facebook) MAY GOD BLESS YOU, SAINT OF GOD.
