- Will Graham, CEO Andrew Wommack Ministries-Europe, www.awme.net

“Extra Virgin Grace is one of those precious books that cause you to love Jesus more once you're finished reading it. Ryan shows himself to be one of today's finest practical theologians. Masterfully utilizing the lens of grace, he leads us to a place where we can gain application filled clarity on the finished work of the cross and our righteousness in Christ. I'm certain that this book will become part of my arsenal in raising up pastors, leaders, and church planters all around the world.” - Lucas Miles, President, The Oasis Network For Churches, USA, www.oasnet.org
“Ryan has hit a home run again with his latest book “Extra Virgin Grace”. It brims with razor sharp insight into the beauty and fullness of life lived in the freedom of the New Covenant. For those who have lived under years of mixed law and grace, this book will clear any cobwebs in your thinking and thrust you into Spirit-led glory-filled New Covenant life to the maximum! Along the way, Ryan kills a few holy cows that have kept believers for years in a fog of condemnation and confusion. This is truth that will really set you free!”
- Fini de Gersigny, Lead elder, Jubilee Church, Australia, www.jubilee.org.au

- John Crowder, President, Sons of Thunder Ministries & Publications, USA, www.TheNewMystics.com

“This book is a smorgasbord of grace and a feast for the hungry. It provides a sweeping study of many topics that are often misunderstood. If you want a grace-based perspective of the Beatitudes, true holiness, eternal security, discipline and walking by the spirit, read this book.”
- Prof. Paul D. Ellis, Escape to Reality, New Zealand, www. escapetoreality.org

“This book is a one-of-a-kind. The insights are inspiring, the ideas are important and the impact is intense. A very revealing, renewing and refreshing book. It brings the “amazing” back to grace!”
- Ps. Paul P. Hernandez, National Director and Senior Pastor, FREE Mission Philippines Inc. www.freemissionphils.com

“This is an absolute must read for those who desire certainty and full and complete assurance of God‟s love. Every sentence needs to be read, not just selected chapters. If you are already a grace based person, please don‟t think you know it all. This book will open the eyes of your heart even more. If you have any chains left they will fall away.”
- Rob Rufus, Lead elder, City Church International, Hong Kong, www.ccihk.com

“This book gave me a fresh insight and helpfully explained many of the wonderful mysteries about grace. It reminded me to stay teachable and keep learning all I can about the amazing person of grace. The publishing of this book could not have come at a better time for all those serious about correctly dividing the Word of Truth. Well done Ryan!”
- Steve Wheeler, Lead elder, Highway Christian Community, South Africa, www.highway.org.za

“The Scriptures declare that „beautiful are the feet of those who preach good news‟. With this book, Ryan has shown us good looking feet. His work brings practical clarity to the proclamation of peace, good tidings, salvation and the reign of God. He joins an ever expanding crowd of New Covenant ministers lifting up voices full of joy. Extra Virgin Grace makes plain and beautiful God's abounding grace for us.”
-Gregory Haswell, Lead Elder, Northlands Church, USA, www. northlandschurch.com

“Ryan has the awesome ability to remove the unfortunate effects of something I like to call 'Christian Tunnelvision.' This is when well-meaning people can't see, hear or think in ways beyond the images of God that religion and legalism have rooted in their minds. The light Ryan sheds on the topics in this book will help shatter many of those false images of God which religion created and at the same time reveal to you sides of grace and truth you might not have even considered!”

Report from Glory & Grace, 2010, Hong Kong!!

Written late October 2010

Dear friends,
Hope this letter finds you well :-).
I’m now in Macdonalds using free wifi just down the road from the conference venue.
this has been the third day of glory and grace conference in hong kong.
we have been receiving, amazing, clear revelatory teaching on the Grace of God and Faith, on the New Covenant through Andrew Wommack.
It has been incredible teaching about body, soul and spirit. How our spirits have already been created Righteous and is perfect in Christ. Ephesians 4:25. Our bodies and soul have already been purchased by the blood of Jesus but not yet redeemed, but our spirit, our new creation is already perfect and righteous before God and we can never loose that standing before God, our new creation cannot sin (1John 3:9).

The soul, is the mind and emotions part. It needs to be renewed with God’s Word, the Bible. The body is mortal, it will die one day, it is neither good nor bad, it’s neutral. The body simply responds to who’s in control- the Spirit or the Soul. When your soul is in agreement with your New Creation Spirit through agreeing with Truth, then your Spirit takes control of the body.

I cannot explain in full detail here but Andrew Wommack has really done some intensive study into this. You can goto Andrew’s website and download his free teaching on Spirit, soul and body.

Rob also encouraged us to be stable people in the Word of God~~ be wise stewards of this grace revolution not using grace as a license for laziness but being consistent people, year after year, not people who live by emotions or feelings but people based their lives on truth.

But this truly is a great privilege to be part of this great awakening~~ the Truth won’t set you free, but only the Truth the you Know will Set You Free!!!
They also showed us an video of ministry into china, its incredible what they are doing there!! they could easily have an 1000 workers there today. Heaps of people are getting saved!!

Last night, we had an amazing time with our Heavenly Father worshpping HIm.
Then we had a fire tunnel over and over again in the front. Many people were shaking in the glory, joy of the Lord was upon us. Once again I met some really cool people from the brothers and sisters here in Hong Kong.
Then later as the service finished, some stayed on, and I got prayed for by two people when they prayed that God would open my spiritual senses. I felt a really released and a veil lifted off me. Then after that they said there was gold all over my face!!
I then stayed on to soak more in God’s Presence… its been amazing making some cool friends and having some amazing grace discussions, praying for one another..,, linking arms across the nations because of the gospel of grace!!! what a priviliege to hang out with like minded

We’ve been having some grace discussions with a few people from south africa talking about things such as …. “does God allow sickness in your life to build your character?”
Its amazing there are preachers out theere who wiill build a whole new doctrine theology based upton their experience rather than the Truth of God’s Word; just because they have experienced the healing power of God in their lives, they build a theology to say that God is using it to build their character- this is nothing rather than from the pit of hell!!
If you are a father, would you use sickness to teach your children somthing?

Today, Fini and Isi from sydney ministered with such amazing message of Joy!! “Go where the wind blows!!” Fini pretty much encouraged us to be joyful in the Lord at all times- it was so easy to received his message. He preached on Psalm 16 that our foundation must be on the goodness of God. He talked about how our churches must be flexible enough to follow the Holy Spirit and never loose His Presence, God gets all the Glory!!
Then Andrew preaches such an amazing message on giving that I’ve never ever heard anyone teach on it before with such clarity, pure motive, and just simple word of God for the purposes of the Kingdom!! it was incredible!!
Anyway I hope this letter finds you well, Grace Umerited Favor of God be upon YOu!!!! HA HAHAHAHA!!!!”
The JOy of Lord is your strength!!!! don’t forget to laugh today!!!

Glory and Grace will be streeaming live tomorow and I will send you a link for that!!!

Living in the balance of Grace and Faith taught by Andrew Wommack, you can download teaching on this from:

http://www.awmi.net/extra/audio/1064

Don’t base your life on emotions, base it on Faith.

Ephesians 2:8

“save” – refers to everything Jesus provided for us in deliverance from hell, eternal life, healing, prosperity, joy and peace.

Grace is something that God does for you completely independent of you even before you have need of it. Grace along does not save you, it has to be combined with faith.

E.g. When Jesus was crucified 2000 years ago and died, he aleady took punishment for all your sins (short comings) and forgave all your sins, even before you were born- even before you committed any sin! THIS IS GRACE!!

Jesus had already healed you of all your sicknesses 2000 years ago on the cross even before you got sick, all you need to do is believe it!!! and you will receive.

“He forgave me even before I sinned.” Faith is how we receive what God has already forgive us in Christ.

Faith is a positive response to what God has Already Done!! Faith is our response to God’s Grace.

Faith doesn’t move God, God has already moved heaven and earth through the what happendd on the cross- it is finished!!!

Faith simply appropriates what God has already provided in Jesus and Him Crucified.

The moment when somebody believes, has Faith that that Jesus forgave all his/her sins 2000 yrs ago even before they even committed, then they get saved.

Grace Alone doesn’t save you, you need to have faith as well.

Ephesians 2:8 “ It is by grace you have been saved through faith…”

Faith is simpy an positive response to what God has already done- he has already forgiven us, he has already healed us, he has already provieded for us through the cross your every single need…

all you need to do is believe and thank God that He has already provided- this is the seed of faith.

So if you have a need or something, just thank God that He has already provided it for you in Jesus and His Crucifiction and then believe that you have received it (Mark 11:24) and take whatever action God leads you to or wait.

Today morning, Rob preached an incredible message of the New Covenant, The good news of God’s Grace through the book of Hebrews 5-6, a very much misunderstood passage. It was so revolutionary, Rob said he has never preached it before, and I don’t think I have never ever never heard anyone have that kind of revelation before. After the message, I really felt that we are in a revolution of Grace, liken rediscovery of justification by faith just as Martin luther was. I really encourage you to get that message you can watch it for free online.

Basically what he was saying was that the Scripture that was traditionally taught as in Hebrews 6 as the “basics foundations of the faith” could actually not be New Covenant foundations, it could be talking about Old Covenant teaching. E.g. such as ‘laying of hands’ could refer to laying on hands of the sacrificial animal to be our sin substitute, it does not refer to the teaching of the laying on of hands for impartation as some may say. Remember Hebrews was written to Hebrews who understood the Old Covenant law of Moses.

You can watch sermon “Is it possible to be restored to Repentance? Hebrews 6” can fastforward the praise time and get into the message.

All the sermons will be available free for download from http://www.ccihk.com/en/media/online-audio

Then I got prayed for by some citychurch people, it was incredible!!! for about 30 mins. such activation I was set free to come out of my skin with boldness and authority, I can’t explain it I was set free!!

11!!
THANKYOU SO MUCH FOR READING THIS, BLESSINGS TO YOU MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST
