Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 48
Lam 3:21 -25; I recall this (doctrine) 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 and the reason that God continues to support the human race.
We are now in a segment where we are discussing the doctrine of church age spirituality.
Last time we noted that the filling of the Holy Spirit engages the spiritual power system that God created for the new spiritual species. The spiritual power system is engaged or disengaged based on believer's volitional choices.
The filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit is therefore the sine qua non of true spirituality. This means that regardless of what may people think, no one is spiritual unless they are filled with the Spirit by complying with God's mandates.
When a believer sins and subsequently rejects or neglects to use God's non-meritorious provision for recovery from OSN control of the soul some system of pseudo spirituality is inevitably developed as a substitute for true spirituality.
Pseudo spirituality is a fake "spirituality" that some people believe is spirituality but it is not spirituality at all. It is a system of human good and evil that is based on some system or set of rules created by man or some system of religion or religious ritual created by satan.
These systems of fake spirituality that deceive people operate in opposition to the true spirituality that is exclusively and precisely defined in God's Word of truth.
Biblical examples of pseudo "spirituality" are legalism described in Gal 6:12; and 2Tim 3:5; and emotionalism described in Phil 3:18-19; additional examples that are presently popular include secular humanism, utopian socialism, and islam.
At the present time, the battle for the hearts and minds of the citizens of the USA is between the lies of secular humanist utopian socialism that alleges to prioritize "social justice" and equality versus Divine Establishment truth that prioritizes freedom and privacy.
God's plan and God's Word always prioritize freedom. Gal 5:1; because Gods' Word is truth. John 17:17 and application of truth always results in freedom. John 8:31-32; This is why where God the Holy Spirit is there is freedom. 2Cor 3:17;
Synonyms for the filling ministry of God the Spirit include: Paul's vocabulary in Gal 5:16; "Walk by means of the Spirit...." And Eph 5:18, " Stop sinning and keep on being filled with the Spirit."
John's vocabulary in 1John 1:7; "walk in the light." and Peter's vocabulary in 2Pet 1:4; "partakers of the divine nature."
Knowledge of pertinent doctrine from God's Word of truth enables the believer to understand how the ministry of God the Holy Spirit works resulting in the believer acquiring confidence regarding the function of the ministry of the Spirit in their life. 1John 2:20-21; 1John 3:20-21;
