Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 66
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; 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 that is based on the indwelling and filling ministries of God the Holy Spirit.
When we stopped last time we were noting that the attempt to mix Divine power with human power resulted only in human power because human power and divine power are mutually exclusive and God's power does not operate along with human power because that is not in compliance with God's plan of grace. Eph 2:8-9;
No believer can fulfill the protocol plan of God outside of God's spiritual power system, because no believer can fulfill the protocol plan of God in human energy, power or ability. Rom 4:5; 2Cor 12:9;
Unwavering confidence in God's Word of truth under the mentor ministry of
God the Holy Spirit is the only way God's power can be deployed. Zech 4:6b; "`Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,' says the Lord."
"But a time is coming (Church Age), and now is (Hypostatic Union), when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. and the people who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth" John 4:23-24;
God's Word has to be more real and more important to you than anything else in your life. Remember Jesus is God's Word. John 1:1,14; so occupation with God's Word is occupation with Christ.
The omnipotence of God the Holy Spirit is the exclusive means for the execution of the protocol plan of God for the Church.
The primary function of the omnipotence of the Spirit is to understand God's Word of truth. For without the filling ministry of the Spirit inside the spiritual power system, the believer cannot understand or learn the mystery doctrine of the Church Age.
The believer's only teacher of doctrine is God the Holy Spirit and He only teaches us when we are under the His control inside of His spiritual power system.
Jesus prophesied of this in John 4:23-24; John 14:26; and John 16:12-14;. Paul restated it in 1Cor 2:9-16; and John taught it in 1John 2:27;
The omnipotence of the Holy Spirit is the exclusive means of execution of the protocol plan of God for the Church Age. However, the omnipotence of the Holy Spirit is only available inside the system.
When the believer is filled with the Spirit, he is residing inside God's spiritual power system. When the believer sins, he removes himself from God's spiritual power system and is described as grieving or quenching the Holy Spirit.
When the believer is in a state of carnality, he can only reenter through the grace reentry procedure called rebound. 1John 1:9;
Inside God's spiritual power system, the believer is walking in the light, 1John 1:7; outside the spiritual power system, the believer is described as walking in darkness, 1John 1:6,8,10;
The logistics for the Christian way of life are provided by exclusively by God's omnipotence under God's grace policy.
This includes the omnipotence of God the Father that is related to our portfolio of invisible assets, the omnipotence of God the Son that is related to the perpetuation of human history, and the omnipotence of God the Holy Spirit that is related to the availability and use of divine power inside God's spiritual power system.
The historical environment for the Christian way of life is provided in grace by God the Father who has made available our portfolio of invisible assets, and the means by which the Holy Spirit fills and controls us. The filling of the Spirit and walking by means of the Spirit are different sides of the same coin. Both terms refer to spirituality.
When the believer is filled with the Spirit, he automatically resides in the spiritual power system where he has equal privilege and equal opportunity to execute God's protocol plan.
Outside the spiritual power system, the believer can only function on human power and human ability. Divine omnipotence and human power are mutually exclusive so the Christian way of life is a matter of making a volitional choice to consistently use divine power instead of human power.
A perfect plan demands a perfect power for its execution so God's perfect power is required for its execution.
Winners who are invisible heroes are only manufactured by God's power under the filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit inside God's spiritual power system.
The Christian way of life is a supernatural way of life that demands a supernatural means of execution. 1Cor 2:1-16;
The availability of divine power gives every Church Age believer equal privilege and opportunity to execute God's plan, will, and purpose. Every believer has exactly the same power, plan, purpose available for them to fulfill the directive will of God.
Eph 3:16; "Now to Him who is able to do infinitely more than we could ever ask or even imagine on the basis of the power that works for us."
1Cor 2:5, "That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of man but in the power of God."
2 Pet 1:3, "Seeing His divine power has given to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the metabolized doctrine from Him who called us to His own glory and virtue."
2Cor 4:7, "For we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the surpassing greatness of His power may be from God and not from ourselves."
Matt 22:29, "Jesus answered and said to them, `You are constantly being deceived, not knowing the Scripture; therefore, you do not know the power of God.'"
