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 that God provides for every believer in their election and predestination on the basis of Jesus' work on the cross.
These assets are 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 of supergrace and ultra supergrace. James 4:6; Eph 2:7;
Last time we noted that as a believer in Jesus Christ during the Church Age in association with His royal patent as King of Kings and Lord of Lords the bright morning star you have the greatest opportunity and the greatest privilege that has ever belonged to anyone during the entire course of human history.
The portfolio of invisible spiritual assets that God the Father assigned to you in eternity past makes it possible for you to have fantastic personal and historical impact should you decide to take advantage of it.
The equal opportunity of predestination is the operational spiritual power system that is the palace that God the Father designed for every believer in eternity past. The deployment of this spiritual power system is the means of fulfilling God's protocol plan.
God the Holy Spirit indwelt and filled you at the moment of your salvation and thereby entered you into your very own prefabricated palace that is the only place where the Christian spiritual life functions because the Christian spiritual life can only be executed with God's power and provision under His grace policy.
The indwelling ministry of God the Holy Spirit establishes your union with Christ as a member of God's royal family. The filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit provides the power to execute God's protocol plan.
You remove yourself from God's spiritual power system through the choice to commit personal sin and you recover by making the volitional choice to acknowledge any sin you can recall to God through rebound.
Because of God's grace policy the filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit is the only power that is sufficient for the execution of the Christian way of life.
Under the filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit the believer has their thinking renovated by God's Word of truth and with renovated thinking develops Christian spiritual modus operandi that includes the basic problem-solving devices of rebound and faith-rest.
God's Word teaches the believer that God has created systems of legitimate authority that are designed to regulate both spiritual and temporal life for the purpose of establishing and maintaining the freedom that is necessary for spiritual advance under God's grace policy.
Believers who become winners have positive volition to God's Word with the result that they respect and submit to the legitimate authorities that God has established under the principles of enforced and genuine humility. 1Pet 5:5-7;
Enforced humility is when you comply because you have to whither you understand or not. Genuine humility is when you comply because you understand God's plan for your life and you want to comply because you do understand. Matt 16:21-23;
This is what Jesus did when He submitted to God the Father in His unglorified humanity. Luke 22:42;
If you have humility no matter who you are you have objectivity and as a result you have to capacity to function in positional freedom and learn God's Word in order to acquire experiential freedom. Gal 5:1; 2Cor 10:5;
Believers who prioritize the perception, metabolization, and application of God's Word of truth develop momentum in the spiritual life from the doctrine they learn.
All basic momentum in the Christian's spiritual life comes from the perception and application of truth ( Bible doctrine). God the Holy Spirit teaches God's Word to the believer and that spirit taught or epignosis doctrine in the believer's thinking results in the believer developing confidence in God (hope).
Hope or confidence in God establishes the believer's spiritual self-esteem becomes the basis for spiritual adulthood where is personal love for God becomes a major source of motivational virtue in life.
Spiritual self-esteem develops capacity for integrity love that results in the believer's transition from spiritual childhood into spiritual adulthood.
The believer with personal love for God develops capacity for impersonal love for all mankind. This becomes the basis for spiritual autonomy that is the second stage of spiritual adulthood. This is where the believer develops functional virtue in life.
God permits the believer to encounter various categories of momentum testing in the devil's world so they will develop additional momentum in God's power system. The four categories of momentum testing that God permits are people testing, system testing, thought testing, and disaster testing.
