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 one of the reason why God continues to support the human race in the devil's world.
We are now in a study of the portfolio of invisible assets the God gives to every believer on the basis of Jesus' work on the cross and conveyed to believers on the basis of grace and faith at salvation as salvation grace, after salvation as logistical grace and in spiritual maturity as the escrow in the form of supergrace and ultra supergrace. James 4:6; Eph 2:7;
Last time we noted that as an Invisible hero the mature believer deploys God's power rather than their own and as a result their identity is unknown by people and yet well known by God. 1Cor 2:15; 2Cor 6:4-9; NET
The mature believer understands that under God's grace policy all they have to do is hold their position in God's Word of truth and wait of God to come through for them. Isa 40:31;
We noted that after initially failing and running away to Midian that during his 40 years herding sheep in Midian Moses learned that even though he was on God's side he could not fight the battle.
He learned that he had to wait for God to win the battle because the real battle that he and all believers are actually engaged in is spiritual and only one who can actually win that battle is God Himself. Exod 14:13-14; Eph 6:12-13;
David had learned this principle at a very young age. 1Sam 17:44-50;
Believers attain their escrow blessings because they are thinking with the mind of Christ and as a result they submit to God's will by complying with His word of truth. Luke 22:42; Heb 12:2-3; John 17:17;
The natural human viewpoint thinking of winner believers has been renovated by God's Word of truth under the principle of Prov 8:18; "With Me (doctrine) are riches and honor (escrow blessings for time), enduring wealth and prosperity (escrow blessings for eternity)."
Believers develop capacity to receive the escrow blessings by living in accord with God's grace policy and protocol plan inside His spiritual power system.
Eph 3:20; "Now to Him (God the Father) who is able to do infinitely more than all we could ask or imagine on the basis of the power (Holy Spirit) which is at work within us (by means of God given positional assets and God's spiritual power system)."
God's word tells us that believers cannot in their wildest dreams imagine the blessings that God has for those who glorify Him through their spiritual advance. 2Cor 2:9; (Isa 64:4;) Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him...
That power at work in us refers to God the Holy Spirit, but God the Holy Spirit only empowers those believers who submit to His authority and choose to live inside God's spiritual power system.
The filling of the Spirit and walking by means of the Spirit only occur as the result of complying with His mandate to keep on residing under the aegis of His operational spiritual power system. Eph 5:18b; Gal 5:16;
Living in God's spiritual power system is a product of the believer's un-coerced free will choice to take advantage of the unconditional primary assets of election and predestination that God provides for every believer at the moment they are saved.
Election is the expression of God's sovereignty and His will and personal desire for you. God desires for you to have His highest and best. He desires for you to have the greatest possible blessings that it is possible for Him to give to you under His policy of grace in accord with His perfect holiness.
Predestination is God's provision for you. It is God's provision of everything that is required for you to glorify Him by executing His plan and fulfilling His directive will in compliance with his grace policy.
God's infinite love and care for you is demonstrated by the magnificent way that He has provided for you in the printouts of election and predestination from the divine decree in eternity before anything else was created.
This means that in union with Christ you are the objective; you are the goal of God's entire creative plan. Eph 2:4-10; This means that you are the "apple of God's eye."
In God's protocol plan under His grace policy election is the first unconditional primary positional asset that God provided. Eph 1:4; "Since He (God the Father) Himself has elected us in Him (Jesus Christ) before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him (God the Father)."
This verse tells us that election was provided before anything was created and "Holy" refers to the absolute and relative concept of experiential sanctification.
We see this verse addresses the election relates to the experiential part of God's plan for our lives. Being sanctified or holy has to do with separation unto God for special service in His plan.
The verse tells us that God has elected Church Age believers for the purpose of glorifying Him by complying with His directive will and executing His protocol plan.
When the believer is functioning inside God's spiritual power system under the filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit the believer in perfect compliance with God's directive will and in the status of absolute holiness.
God establishes this holiness through the synergy of the primary positional assets that He gives to every believer at salvation combined with their residence and function within His operational spiritual power system.
