Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 15
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 system of logistical grace that provides for believers while they are physically alive in the devil's world as members of God's royal family.
Last time we noted that the difference between the winner and the loser 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;
God imputes logistical grace support through the grace pipeline. At one end of the pipeline is God's justice, that is the source of God's blessing to every believer, winner or loser. At the other end of the pipeline is God's imputed righteousness that was given to every believer the moment they believed in Jesus Christ.
The pipeline conveys God's blessings to every believer regardless of their choice to obey God or not. This pipeline cannot be destroyed or damaged. It cannot not suffer from any kind of failure because it is protected the power of God's essence that includes His omnipotence.
Since the source of all logistical blessing is God's perfect justice God is fair in supporting every believer. God is perfect God so God provides blessing exclusively on the basis of His perfect holiness.
This means that believers are not blessed because of what they do for God, but because of what God does for them. This means that doing good deeds is not a factor in receiving logistical grace blessing from God.
God's logistical grace pipeline excludes all human ability, morality, talent, giving, sacrifice, service, or any other patronizing function of legalism that a believer may do in a misguided attempt to earn blessings from God.
The pipeline connects God's perfect justice with the believer's perfect imputed righteousness making it possible for perfect God to bless all believers, winners and losers, spiritual or carnal, good or bad without compromising His perfection.
God found a way to bless us through the divine policy called grace. God cannot accept anything less than perfect righteousness and cannot bless anything less than perfect righteousness.
God's perfect justice sends grace blessing down the pipeline. All life support and blessing is conveyed in this manner to every believer, winner and loser.
This means that in logistical grace, God's justice is the source of all divine support and blessing, and God's imputed righteousness is the recipient of life support and blessing.
God's justice can only bless perfect righteousness because God's integrity is both the guardian of the divine attributes and the believer's point of contact with God.
In the function of God's grace God's attributes cannot be compromised and has found a way through the judicial imputations to provide logistical grace for the believer without any compromise of His attributes.
God's perfect righteousness is the principle of divine integrity. God's perfect justice is the function of divine integrity. Therefore, God cannot accept anything less than perfect righteousness as the object of His divine blessing.
Man's relative righteousness from the morality produced by "keeping the law" or doing "good" works is unacceptable to God.
God was motivated by integrity love to solve the problem of how to bless man. And God solved the problem through His perfect Holiness.
From the moment of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, perfect divine righteousness resides in every member of the royal family, Rom 3:22;
This means that every believer will receive life support and blessing from God whether they choose deploy the Christian life and conduct their life within God's plan according God's Word of truth under the teaching ministry of God the Holy Spirit or not.
Logistical grace is completely compatible with God's integrity because it does not compromise His perfect essence.
God's perfect righteousness demands perfect righteousness; God's perfect justice demands perfect justice. What the righteousness of God demands, the justice of God executes through grace because of integrity love.
God's righteousness demands that God's justice convey blessing when the believer is "walking by means of the Spirit" and demands discipline when the believer is "walking by means of the OSN." Gal 5:16; Gal 5:18-23; Heb 12:6-8;
