Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 27
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 silently 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; who are the targets of God's grace imputations that support all of mankind.
We are presently noting the supergrace blessings that God imputes to winner believers who have advanced to spiritual maturity. We noted that the Biblical nomenclature for "supergrace" comes from the phrase "megas charis" that is translated "greater grace" in James 4:6;
Last time we noted that After salvation God's objective for every believer is to advance to supergrace, 1Tim 2:3-4; Eph 3:16-19.
This means that the advance to supergrace must have top priority in the believer's scale of values, Phil 3:4-8.
All human achievement and good must be considered as piles of garbage and Human celebrityship a liability when compared with reaching the status of supergrace in spiritual maturity. Phil 3:7-12;
God is waiting to provide supergrace and ultra-supergrace blessings to every believer, Isa 30:18, "The Lord God longs to be gracious to you, and He waits on high to have compassion on you because the Lord is a God of justice; those who wait for Him are happy and blessed. Net note 41
The Hebrew word "esher" translated "blessed" combines the concept of happiness and blessing that results from positive volition to God's Word of truth.
The Hebrew root word includes the concept of being "level" that means to be adjusted to the justice of God. Rom 12:3;
Blessing and happiness, mercy and compassion are always the result of adjusting to the justice of God. We adjust to God. God does not adjust to us. James 1:17; Mal 3:6;
God provides for and shows us the way and expects us to choose it. Deut 30:19;
God's mandate for believers to advance to supergrace is found in Heb 12:1-3; The importance of God's Word truth aka faith or doctrine in reaching supergrace and executing God's mandate is found in Heb 11:1-3;
In Phil 3:12-14;Paul explains the process of parlaying supergrace into ultra-supergrace.
Supergrace is related to reciprocal integrity love. Rom 8:28; Eph 3:19; 1John 4:19;
God loves every believer with maximum love based on their positional status in Christ without regard to their experiential status.
God's love is based on perfect righteousness and justice that is provided on the basis of propitiation and imputation. 1John 2:1-2; 2Cor 5:21;
