Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 70
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 have been discussing the doctrine of church age spirituality that is based on the indwelling and filling ministries of God the Holy Spirit.
We noted that since God's plan of grace and human works are mutually exclusive and when human power and divine power are mixed the result is legalism that becomes the basis of some system of fake spirituality.
The major reason for the decline in the client nation is that too many pastors are failing to teach the principles of true spirituality which leaves believers with nothing but fake spirituality as the basis for their spiritual life.
When we stopped last time we had noted that fake spirituality by taboos obscures the uniqueness of the Church Age including the function of the baptism, indwelling, and filling ministries of God the Holy Spirit, the portfolio of invisible assets, the royal priesthood and ambassadorship of the believer, the mystery doctrine of the church, and the power of the indwelling ministry of the Trinity.
The fascistic political correctness that has become the policy of many of the educational institutions and the government controlled media in our country at this time are the product of the unrestrained legalistic tabooism of those who worship the fake god of pantheist secular humanism with it's fake doctrines of multiculturalism, world peace, globalism and global climate change. 2Tim 3:5;
Too many legalistic do-gooder believers get sucked into believing false doctrines because they have not been taught God's Word sufficiently enough or specifically enough to recognize and reject the doctrines of demons that have become the public lies of the demonic progressive cosmic consensus.
A corollary to fake spirituality by compliance with legalistic taboos is fake spirituality by respectability that is the false belief that believers are spiritual because their sins are more respectable than the sins of others.
This is arrogant self-righteousness that is based on arrogant self-vindication from the self-justification and self-deception results in being insensitive and unaware of one's own personal sins while at the same time being hypersensitive and accusative toward others for their personal sins.
The believer involved in fake spirituality by respectability is very legalistic, very superficial, and is often involved with more subtle and worse sins than the believer who is involved with overt immorality. Prov 6:16-19;
Spirituality by respectability establishes a system of overt morality, and calls it a system of spirituality. They believe that a person is "spiritual" because they do not do anything that offends them and they think that a person cannot do certain things and be saved.
Spirituality by respectability is heavily involved in inordinate ambition and inordinate competition. Believers involved with this system of fake spirituality often rationalize the adversity of divine discipline and misinterpret it as suffering for blessing.
These believers do not understand that one category of personal sin places you under OSN control of the soul just as easily as another. Any personal sin destroys fellowship with God and demands the use of God's grace recovery procedure of acknowledging any known sin to God alone. 1John 1:9;
A problem of spirituality by respectability is that it often involves believers who have a lack of normal human self-esteem. When believers have a lack of normal human self-esteem, they strive to find something that makes them feel good about themselves. The so-called "snowflakes" in our country today seem to have this problem.
They develop a fake human self-esteem by developing a system of self- righteous human works that when performed become the basis of a system of fake human self-esteem from being instead of developing true spiritual self-esteem from understanding God's grace system. 1Cor 15:10;
The believer's failure to properly understand the doctrine of sin and God's grace solution for sin results in inability to properly deal with sin using God's grace recovery procedure of rebound so the believer gets condemned by implacable evil self-righteous satanic people and ensnared into self loathing, guilt, penance and reparation.
Never forget that implacable satan is the father of lies and accusation and those who lie and accuse are satanic. John 8:44; Zech 3:1; 1Pet 5:8; Rev 12:10c
Self-righteous believers have a tendency to bully, judge, and meddle in other believer's business. Self-righteous believers are often tenacious in demanding others comply with their self-righteous arrogance because they demand approval from others to maintain their fake self-esteem.
The spiritual believer is grace oriented and as a result is validated by Bible Doctrine and their approval comes from God. 2Cor 10:18; 1Cor 4:5;
