John 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.

2John 2-3; Because of the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever grace mercy and peace will be with us from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Son of the Father in truth and love.

In the concluding segments of our study on doctrinal orientation we are noting some of the categories of Bible doctrine that God's Word reveals to the spirit led believer.

Last time we noted that when equilibrium between the power of doctrinal truth resident in the soul that corresponds to the power of the filling ministry of the Holy Spirit capacity for blessing is established.

The filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit establishes the potential capacity to learn God's Word and doctrinal truth in the soul establishes functional capacity to deploy God's Word into the devil's world in accord with God's objectives.

God the Holy Spirit works through God's Word so a lack of doctrine in the soul creates a demand for doctrine under the function of GASP. God the Holy Spirit's work is accomplished when doctrine is applied.

This balance of God's resident power in the believer's soul is established by learning doctrinal truth under God's policy of GASP on a daily basis.

The consistent daily perception of doctrinal truth under GASP is the sine qua non of the believer's advance to spiritual maturity. Heb 10:25; Heb 10:35-36; Heb 10:39; Col 2:6-7;

Capacity for supergrace blessing from God can only be developed from persistent positive volition under the daily function of the divinely provided GASP.

GASP is how the believer understands, recognizes, and acquires supergrace blessing from God. There can be temporary shortages but there are no chronic shortages in God's grace system. Chronic shortages only occur when believers are outside of the will of God because they try to misuse God's grace system.

Heb 10:35-36, "Don't throw away as worthless your confidence in doctrine that has a great reward..."

Spiritual maturity is the result of persistent consistency in learning Bible Doctrine.

Bible Doctrine in the stream of consciousness of the soul produces confidence, Job 5:24-27; 2Cor 5:6-8; Heb 10:35.

It produces divine viewpoint of life and establishes right priorities. Isa 55:7-9; 2Cor 10:5;

It orients the believer to God's plan, will and policy because it reveals God's purpose and objectives; 1Pet 5:5-10; Isa 26:3-4; Rom 8:28.

Doctrine establishes stability of thinking, James 4:8; Heb 6:17-20;

It is the basis for divine guidance and the execution of God's will, Rom 12:2-3; Eph 4:23-24;

Doctrine leads to occupation and fellowship with Christ that becomes your highest priority in life and the basis for establishing the capacity and ability to love God and appreciate Him as the source of all blessings 1John 4:19; Phil 3:10; Eph 3:19; Heb 12:1-2; James 1:17;
