Mark 15:34; The doctrine of rejection part 3
In our study of Mark we are in Mark 15:34; where Jesus was rejected by God as He was judged for the sins of all mankind.
Because of this we have taken up a study of the doctrine of rejection. Last time we noted that for believers to glorify God they must understand exactly how Jesus was sustained while He was suffering the injustice of being rejected and judged for our sins on the cross, the just for the unjust, the righteous for the unrighteous. 1Pet 3:18a;
He was sustained by His use of faith rest. 1Pet 2:23;, "When they hurled their insults at Him, He did not retaliate; when He suffered, He made no threats. Instead, He entrusted Himself (through faith-rest) to Him who judges justly."
The omnipotence of God the Holy Spirit inside the prototype divine power system sustained Him as He recalled and deployed the omnipotent power of God's Word in order to properly orient to His situation.
Jesus was filled with the Spirit and used the omnipotent power of the Holy Spirit to handle every injustice that happened to Him without personal sin,
Heb 9:14, "How much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit (omnipotence of the Spirit inside the prototype divine power system) offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God?"
He was also sustained because He shared perfect the happiness of God. Heb 12:2; "Be concentrating on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our doctrine, who because of the exhibited happiness, He endured the cross, having disregarded the shame, and He sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
In the midst of the greatest and most unjust rejection that has ever occurred in all of human history, Jesus' unglorified humanity had and maintained God's perfect happiness by His recall of God's eternal Word.
Jesus use of God's power through the application of the problem solving devices demonstrated that any believer could use God's happiness to endure any injustice or anything else that the devil's world can throw at them in this life with complete contentment of soul.
Jesus Christ was also sustained by His personal sense of destiny that was derived from His recognition of Himself through His perception of doctrine.
As a result He was sustained by doctrinal orientation and grace orientation. He understood His unique mission to provide the justice necessary for God to redeem of mankind as well as His unique place in God's historical plan as savior of mankind.
He recognized Himself as the strategic victor in the Angelic Conflict as the One who would depose satan as the ruler of this world.
This means that those who reject Jesus Christ have rejected the one and only way out of condemnation and eternal death into salvation and eternal life.
For those who reject God's provision in Jesus there is no solution for them in life in death or in the eternal state and God's rejection (wrath) remains or abides on them.
John 14:6; Jesus said to them, I am the way and the truth and the life; NO one comes to the Father except through Me.
John 3:18; "He who believes on Him is not condemned, but He who believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the uniquely-born Son of God."
John 3:36, "He who believes on the Son has everlasting life; he who does not believe shall not see life, but God's wrath abides on him."
John 16:9; goes on to inform us that the unpardonable sin that is only sin that God the Holy Spirit convicts us of is the only sin that Jesus could not be imputed or judged for, the sin of rejecting Him.
v8 says the Holy Spirit "convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgment;" v9 goes on to say: "of sin, because they do not believe in Me." Net note 21
Jesus Christ, who was perfect, was rejected in person and His Word that reveals Him continues to be rejected.
Therefore, do not be surprised when rejection and injustice are directed toward you as a believer because all believers are positionally identified with the person of the Lord Jesus Christ and in addition doctrinal believers are identified with His Word.
John 15:18-23; "If the world hates (rejects, reviles) you, you know that it has hated (rejected and reviled) Me before it hated (rejected and reviled) you.
This negative volition continues to this day and it would even appear that it is increasing to a scope that has not been seen previously during the Church Age.
It is unbelievable that negative volition has become so pervasive so fast but there is a worldwide nexus between the radical "progressive" fascist "liberal" secularists and the "radical" fascist Islamists to the point that is launching another holocaust.
This time the holocaust is a Christian holocaust.
It is already underway in Islamic Arab countries and Africa. It is threatening Europe that is presently being run by the satanic "liberal" fascist secularists and it has a beachhead in North America.
If we continue to succumb in the satanic "liberal" "progressive" fascist secularist corporatist propaganda that is presently being disseminated by Hollywood, the media, the federal government and education we will also be engulfed.
The only thing that satanic Islam and satanic "liberal" secularists have in common is their hatred of and rejection of Jesus Christ and His Word.
This means that they hate, revile and reject Christians and any Jew who has the courage to take a stand on divine establishment.
At the moment that seems to be enough of a nexus for satan to unite them into opposition against Jesus Christ and His Word on the entire planet.
While the exact timing is unknown if it persists and gets worse and it will if left unchecked it is likely that God will terminate this worldwide Christian holocaust by removing all surviving Christians into witness protection with the exit resurrection or rapture of the Church because there is no longer any place for them to seek haven.
