Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 11
Lam 3:21-23; I recall this to my mind, and it gives me confidence. Because The Lord's mercy never fails; His grace provisions never cease, they are renewed every morning; Great is Your faithfulness... Therefore I have hope in Him. The Lord is good to those who wait on Him.
In our study of the doctrine of the winner believer. Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; We have noted that winner believers are the unknown, unsung heroes of history. 2Cor 6:9;
The winners are those who are not considered by the world to be wise or noble 1Cor 1:26-29; but they are the crisis personalities who stand in the spiritual gap and preserve the nation during the course of human history. Ezek 22:30-31; because they glorify God by learning how to exploit God's grace system to the maximum. 2Pet 3:18; 2Pet 1:2;
Since the winner exploits God's grace system to the maximum we have taken up a study of grace in the context of exploiting it and becoming a winner
The winner's advance can be expressed with the equation of hope that connect the various positional imputations with the corresponding doctrine (faith) that when implemented results in the conveyance of the corresponding grace imputation resulting in confident expectation (hope).
The first radical addresses the unbeliever X [ HL + AOS = P1 + D = H1 ] +
HL: Imputation of human life at physical birth.
AOS: Imputation of Adam's original sin to the sinful nature.
P1: Potential for salvation.
D: The Gospel that is the relevant doctrine in this case.
H1: Confident expectation of receiving eternal life (Hope 1)\
+: The actual grace imputation of eternal life at salvation
the second radical addresses the believer Y [ J1 + J2 = P2 + D = H2 ] +
J1: Judicial imputation of all personal sins to Christ.
J2: Judicial imputation of God's righteousness to the believer.
P2: Potential to execute God's plan for your life.
D: The relevant doctrine: The Mystery doctrines of the Church Age.
H2: Confident expectation of receiving escrow blessings for time (Hope 2)
+: The actual grace imputation of escrow blessings for time.
The judicial imputations of mankind's sins to Jesus Christ on the cross and God's righteousness to the new believer described in 2Cor 5:21; combined with the imputation of eternal life sets the new believer up with all of the provisions necessary to fulfill the objective of the spiritual life that is to receive the conveyance of escrow blessings in time.
The provision comes from God's logistical grace blessings that are provided for every believer from the moment of their salvation that continue unabated until their physical death. Phil 4:19; This brings us to the doctrine of logistical grace.
Logistics is military term that refers to the military science of supply, provision, and planning of troop movement.
Logistics is the provision, movement, and maintenance of all resources and services necessary to sustain military forces. In the case of the military logistics it involves the nation's economic capacity and the nation's capability to support its military forces.
Logistics is also defined as the military science of planning, handling, and implementation of personnel under every possible situation.
Logistics includes the design, development, acquisition, storage, movement, distribution, maintenance, evacuation, and disposal of material. It includes hospitalization of personnel, and the construction and maintenance of housing facilities.
Logistics must be distinguished from administration. Administration is the management of all services and resources necessary to sustain military forces. Administration implies management, and management is the function of logistics. These functions therefore become inseparable.
Logistics is therefore a technical military term for sustaining troops in every form of military activity and maneuver including the barracks, in the field before, during, and after the battle.
Logistics is the science of supporting troops in advance, retreat, evacuation, reconnaissance, attack, exploitation, and pursuit.
During World War II the battle of Dunkirk that occurred between May 26 and June 4, 1940 with the defense and evacuation of British and Allied forces from France is a dramatic illustration of the importance of logistics.
From this military nomenclature comes a Bible doctrine based on the military analogy. Logistics always plays a very important and dramatic part in warfare, but logistics plays an even greater part in your life as a believer. Every believer is alive today because of logistical grace.
The word "logistics" comes from two Greek words. "Logistes", an inspector of accounts, an auditor, a calculator and "logismos", a thinker.
This is why doctrinal inculcation is required if the believer is to become a winner. The winner learns understands God's grace system and is able to exploit it to the maximum thereby avoiding shame when Jesus performs his evaluation of them. 2Tim 3:16-17; 2Tim 2:15;KJV 1Cor 3:11-15;
Logistical grace is defined as God's planning, support, provision, and blessing for the execution of His protocol plan by the church that is comprised of the royal family God for the fulfillment of God's will, purpose, and plan for your life as well as the life of every other believer in Jesus Christ.
Winners exploit this logistical grace to the maximum and thereby parlay God's logistical grace into supergrace and ultra super grace to God's glory.
Logistical grace includes life support for every Church Age believer. This explains how and why we are still alive on this earth. The only reason we are alive is because of logistical grace. We do not earn or deserve it; there's no work we can do to keep ourselves alive.
Logistical grace includes blessing is provided for every Church Age believer, both winners and loser. This dramatizes the justice of God, in that the justice of God sends life support and blessing to the indwelling righteousness of God in both winners and losers. This emphasizes God's grace.
You are alive only because of God's grace. You are not alive because of anything you do. Winners exploit logistical grace to the maximum, losers coast on it, but never learn enough about it or believe in it to the point where they can exploit it.
Logistical grace includes God's provision for every Church Age believer to execute the protocol plan of God. All doctrine comes from the prepared pastor-teacher. If you have consistent and persistent positive volition, you will find right pastor-teacher and the doctrine.
The basis of logistical grace is God's integrity love that provides everything that every believer will ever need. The believer only becomes aware of this provision by studying God's Word of truth under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit.
God is infinite, eternal, and absolute holiness, may be classified as God's integrity or His absolute unchangeable divine virtue.
God's integrity is composed of His perfect righteousness and justice and love. God loves His own integrity. Four principles related to the integrity of God apply:
What the righteousness of God rejects, the justice of God judges.
What the righteousness of God accepts, the justice of God blesses. This is the basis for logistical grace.
The justice of God administers what the righteousness of God demands. The righteousness of God in accepting certain things demands blessing from the justice of God. This is the basis for logistical grace.
