Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; The doctrine of the winner part 87;The portfolio of invisible spiritual assets
Lam 3:21-25; I recall this (God's Word of truth) 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 study of the portfolio of invisible assets that are available to every believer on the basis of Jesus' work on the cross and conveyed to believers on the basis of grace and faith.
Last time we noted that an "escrow" analogy can be used to explain the concept of God providing blessing for believers in eternity before the creation of the physical universe.
An escrow is a deed, a bond or other written agreement that a grantor delivers to another person or entity such a bank or lawyer to eventually be delivered to a grantee.
In Eph 1:3; all three parties of the escrow analogy are mentioned. In the analogy, God the Father corresponds to the "grantor" the party of the first part. The "grantee" corresponds to every Church Age believer. The third party, the depositary or "escrow officer" is our Lord Jesus Christ who the one who actually conveys the escrow to believers.
The deposit, or escrow blessing, is placed beyond the control of the grantor so that it cannot be rescinded or cancelled. God the Father cannot cancel what He has deposited with Christ so your portfolio escrow blessings are part of an irrevocable trust that God the Father established for you. Rom 11:29;
We have no inherent natural ability to glorify God so the first thing God did for us was to set aside everything that would be necessary for us to glorify Him. God made the provision so that Jesus Christ could convey blessings to believers with the result that God is glorified.
This includes blessings for time and greater blessing for eternity. Col 1:25-29;
These blessings are conveyed to believers who are the grantees on the basis of grace as they advance through the objectives of God's protocol plan. The first part of these blessings is conveyed in time but the greater part is conveyed in eternity at the believer's evaluation tribunal that occurs after they receive their resurrection body at the exit resurrection of the church. 1Cor 3:12-15;
Under God's grace policy the only way God is glorified is by what He does. This means that God is only glorified when undeserving mankind develops the grace capacity from the execution of His protocol plan to receive the conveyance of the escrow that He provided before anything was created.
The condition for the transfer of the escrow blessings is the fulfillment of the protocol plan of God and advancing to spiritual maturity through continuous persistent residence, function, and momentum under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit combined with the consistent perception metabolization and application of God's Word of truth inside God's spiritual power system.
The principle of the escrow demands that other unconditional assets be provided as the means of fulfilling the conditions to receive the escrow.
This is why God had to provide us with logistical grace support that is part of the equal privilege and opportunity established by the primary assets of election and predestination to be used in the process of attaining the escrow.
On the basis of election and predestination God provided everything that is required for every believer to advance in the protocol plan and receive the escrow from their positive volition to operate within God's protocol plan after salvation. This is the only place where equality exists in life.
This means the you do not have to depend upon your personality, morality, law keeping, Sabbath keeping, Christian service, sacrificial giving, or any other works you may engage in to fulfill the objectives of the grace policy of God's protocol plan.
You do not have to be smart because learning spiritual information is not a product of the natural human intelligence of first birth it is a spiritual intelligence that comes from God when a person is born again. John 3:6-8;
This means that whatever human handicaps you have in life they are not a detriment to you in your advance to spiritual maturity and receiving your escrow blessings.
This aligns perfectly with God's grace policy so you have no excuse for not receiving the escrow because they are conveyed exclusively on the basis of what God provides and conveys to every believer equally on the basis of faith and grace alone. God provides everything for every believer.
