Youtube video: https://youtu.be/3cfGSSDXU5Y
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... I therefore have hope in Him. The Lord is good to those who wait silently on Him.
We are presently in a study of the doctrine of the winner believer Heb 12:2; Rev 2:7; of who the world does not deserve Heb 11:37-40; those who are the unknown, unsung heroes of history as God's witnesses in the prosecution of satan and the fallen angels. 2Cor 6:9;
Winners are those who become the targets of God's grace imputations by means of doctrine who God supports in the devil's world to press His doctrinal advance in the spiritual death of the devil's world because He does not wish anyone to perish from the second death. 2Pet 3:9;
We are presently looking at the doctrinal viewpoint of the winner believer. When the believer has doctrinal viewpoint God's Word creates capacity for the believer to trust in God to work for them even when they don't understand exactly how and why they just know that God is true and that God does not lie.
This is also why doctrinal viewpoint is enables the winner believer to have the patience to wait on God's timing. Isa 40:31; and accept His sovereign decision regardless of the temporal outcome because they understand that God's eternal plan is perfect. Matt 26:39; Phil 2:5-11; Rom 8:28;
Doctrinal viewpoint aka doctrinal orientation is based on the absolute reality of God's perfection that only God's Word of truth reveals is acquired by listening to the communication of God's Word. Rom 10:17;
Winners submit to this protocol and learn to conduct their lives on the basis of doctrinal viewpoint. Rom 1:16-17;
Last time we were noting some of Jesus' final words on the cross starting with John 19:30; "It is finished" that means that salvation was completed. Nothing could be added to it, nothing could be taken from it because salvation was a completely finished reality.
After that Jesus Christ began a very quick process of dying physically. He exhaled one breath to dismiss His soul and spirit and in that last breath He quoted Psa 31:5; "Into your hands I deposit my spirit, for you have delivered me O Lord, God of truth (doctrine)." that was recorded in Luke 23:46;
The last word in His statement as quoted from Psa 31:5; was the Hebrew word "emeth" that means truth, faith, faithfulness, or doctrine referring to the body of knowledge that God's Word of truth reveals.
This word explains how Jesus received the spiritual stamina, the strength, the motivation, the courage, and the nobility, to take on the most awful job in all of history and fearlessly prosecute it all the way to it's final conclusion with His death on the cross. Phil 2:8;
Col 2:14,15; and Heb 2:14,15; tell us that our Lord Jesus Christ defeated satan and his tyrannical cosmic systems that enslave mankind on the cross.
He accomplished the strategic victory in the angelic conflict and He provided everything necessary for our eternal salvation by enabling God to justify the ungodly on the basis of faith (believing the doctrine). Rom 4:5;
Jesus defeated satan by providing mankind a means of righteousness that satisfied the requirements of the law that did not require keeping the law.
Man's failure (sin) to comply with the mandates in God's Word (the law) was the basis for mankind's enslavement to satan and his cosmic systems. Rom 5:18-21; Rom 8:3;
