Class Notes: 6/7/2017
Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 68
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 since God's plan of grace and human works are mutually exclusive when human power and divine power are mixed the result is legalism that becomes the basis of some system of fake spirituality.
We noted that under legalism legalistic self-righteous believers and unbelievers establish taboos or traditions that are not factors in the Christian spiritual life as a system of fake spirituality
We noted that a modern taboo is global warming aka global climate change because there is no measurable global warming but regardless of that fact Anyone who rejects the global climate change taboo is considered to be an evil heathen.
Global climate change is a taboo that many uninformed people subscribe to religiously but God's Word clearly states that Jesus Christ is in full control of any climate change that may be occurring. Col 1:17; and that man is mandated to subdue the earth in its fallen state for the benefit of the human race. Gen 1:28;
The Hebrew word translated "subdue" is "kibosh" or "kabash" that means to bring something completely under control. In Gen 1:28; God commanded man to put the "kibosh" on the planet. God told man to bring the planet under control and use it. He did not tell man to save the planet.
We noted that God's Word repudiates those who subscribe to, promote and observe taboos by creating legalistic systems of fake spirituality in: 2Tim 3:1-9;
Weather or not they know it everyone who promotes "international solutions" for global warming/climate change is serving satan because they are promoting satan's primary objective of weakening and destroying the autonomy of the nations in order to establish a central international government that controls the entire planet. Isa 14:12;d
For the first time in almost 30 years we have a president who is pushing back against the satanic globalist agenda and satan's minions are apoplectic because their fake spirituality is being challenged.
They are shocked that anyone in a position of power and authority would reject and oppose the false dogma of their fake spirituality.
It is not surprising that the international corporations are some of the most vocal proponents of internationalism including the satanic globalist climate agenda.
God's Word refers to international business interests in association with His destruction of the international world ruling government called "Babylon" during the tribulation. Rev 18:10-19;
Remember God's Word of truth states that the only issue for becoming a believer is faith alone in Jesus Christ alone and the only issue for spirituality is to keep on being filled with or by means of the Holy Spirit by acknowledging any known sin.
You know you are a believer because you know you have complied with the doctrine to believe in Jesus Christ. You know you are spiritual because you know you are a believer in Jesus Christ and you know that you have complied with the doctrine and as a result have no known unconfessed sin in your life.
Under God's grace system compliance with God's Word of truth (Bible Doctrine) establishes the believer's cognitive reality because God's Word of truth aka faith or Bible Doctrine is reality in God's grace system. Heb 11:1-3;
Doctrine is reality weather or not people believe it. Doctrine is reality even when every other system of human perception rejects and impugns it. Rom 3:3-4;
When it comes to taboos or any other form of legalistic fake spirituality the four laws of Christian behavior apply. Under the law of liberty you have the right to do things that will not cause you to sin or enter into carnality. 1 Cor 8:4;
At the same time you have the responsibility to be careful when you are around people who might be corrupted by something that is meaningless to you but is still a taboo for them. 1Cor 8:9;
Impersonal love functions under the law of love in order to avoid offending weaker believers and becoming an impediment to their spiritual growth. 1Cor 8:13;
The law of expediency is directed toward the unbeliever. The believer avoids doing certain things so that the unbeliever is not impeded in the process of recognizing that the only true issue is to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. John 3:16;
In self-righteous arrogance, the unbeliever often tries to superimpose his fake standards on the believer. The unbeliever expects the believer to comply with those fake standards regardless of their true spiritual connotation.
In this case, in the interest of witnessing for Christ, the believer may choose to refrain from doing certain things because they prevent the unbeliever from seeing the only true issue in salvation is to believe in Jesus Christ for salvation. 1Cor 9:19-23;
The law of supreme sacrifice is the highest law of Christian behavior. It sometimes requires the believer to forsake even normal living and legitimate function in life, in order to serve our Lord in a special capacity. 1Cor 9:1-15;
