Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 14
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.
We are now studying God's grace provision for believers while they are physically alive in the devil's world as members of God's royal family.
We have noted that the basis for logistical grace includes the possession of divine righteousness imputed at salvation plus the human spirit created by the Holy Spirit at salvation for the purpose of receiving the communication of God's Word of truth in order to advance in God's plan.
In addition to providing life support and blessing, logistical grace is provided for the believer to glorify God by the perception and execution of the protocol plan of God for the Church.
God provides everything and as a result every believer has the same equal privilege and equal opportunity to execute God's plan, glorify God, and become a winner. Gal 3:28-29;
The logistical grace package includes all of the components necessary to acquire the thinking of our Lord Jesus Christ from the metabolization of God's Word of truth under the mentorship of God the Holy Spirit.
The components of logistical grace that are provided at the moment of salvation for this purpose include the creation of a human spirit that enables the acquisition, retention and deployment of spiritual information. 1Cor 2:14-16;
Logistical grace includes the teaching ministry of God the Holy Spirit that provides the spiritual information that is communicated to the human spirit and the provision of male believers with the spiritual gift of pastor-teacher for the purpose of communicating God's Word of truth to every generation of believers throughout the Church Age.
These gifts are part of logistical grace package that God provides as part of equal privilege and opportunity for every church believer so that every one has the opportunity to advance in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and become a winner whither or not they choose to comply with God's mandate to do so. Gal 5:1; 1Pet 2:16; 2Pet 3:18;
God unconditionally gives these provisions equally to every believer based entirely on the righteousness of God that every believer possesses from their position in Christ. He does not limit them to those who choose to advance.
Every believer's experience is based entirely on their uncoerced free volition.
Believers with positive volition persist in being filled with Jesus Christ's thinking by means of the Holy Spirit consistent exploit God's grace provision to walk by means of the spirit to God's glory and thereby become winners. Believers with positive volition take advantage of God's provision.
Believers with negative volition persist in quenching and grieving God the Holy Spirit are not filled with Jesus Christ's thinking by means of the Holy Spirit consistently reject God's grace provision resulting in failure to exploit it so they choose not to walk by means of the spirit to God's glory and as a result they become losers.
Losers are simply believers who exhibit negative volition to God's plan and therefore simply waste or reject and therefore misuse God's provision. Heb 3:12; Net note 20
The difference between winners and losers is the doctrinal capacity that is created by consistent positive volition to God's Word of truth under the mentorship of God the Holy Spirit because God always targets faith (doctrinal truth) wherever it is found with grace.
This means that the believer who possesses more faith (doctrinal truth) because of positive volition will end up receiving more grace because they have the capacity to receive it. James 4:6; Matt 13:12;
