Isa 30:18; Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you, and therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who wait for Him.
We are in a study of Satan's cosmic system that is a system of thinking that is the basis of the thinking of the entire human race that is comprised of lies and deceit in their natural soulish state apart from God in spiritual death. 1Cor 2:14;
Last time we noted that because of their union with the Lord Jesus Christ, Church Age believers have the greatest power for problem solving that exists in all of human history.
The problem-solving device of integrity-love is unique to God's power system. Possessing God's own happiness in spiritual maturity is the highest and greatest use of power ever to exist in all of human history as a problem-solving device is actually sharing God's happiness. Heb 12:2;
The highest problem-solving device for believers in the Old Testament was using the faith rest drill to apply doctrinal rationales. All of these additional assets are what comprise the greater grace (megas charis) that James 4:6; refers to.
God makes war against arrogant born-again believers while simultaneously blessing every believer every day through logistical grace support by sustaining them and keeping them alive in the adverse circumstances of satan's world.
While sustaining them, God makes war against arrogant believers because they are at war with God when they are functioning on the basis of demonic doctrines that they have learned from living in satan's cosmic system.
Humble believers are objective and teachable because they have enforced and genuine humility from grace orientation with the result that they develop momentum inside God's divine dynasphere through continuous reception, retention, recall and application of doctrine.
Reception is concentration on the communication of Bible doctrine under the filling of the Spirit.
Retention is where doctrine is metabolized and converted from gnosis into epignosis under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit with the result that it is available to be applied as wisdom.
Recall is the choice to be consistent in application of the wisdom of epignosis doctrine under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit.
The humble believer submits to God and learns to consistently use the invisible spiritual assets to glorify God in their advance to spiritual maturity.
Submission to God requires daily discipline and training. Submission is your daily moment by moment walk with the Lord Jesus Christ under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit inside God's spiritual power system.
Believers are not in a state of submission unless they are filled with the spirit, residing in God's spiritual power system with the result that they walk by means of the spirit. Rom 8:4; Gal 5:16;
Any time the believer is involved in sin, human good, or evil, they are no longer in a state of submission to God and by default they are in satan's cosmic system. Rom 8:6-8;
Submission is the product of a lifestyle of functioning under the enabling power of the Holy Spirit with momentum from metabolized doctrine inside God's spiritual power system.
This means that to "submit to God" is to consistently and persistently execute God's protocol plan for your life by means of His power. Isa 66:2b; Zech 4:6; 2Cor 12:9-10;
James 4:7b; You resist the devil when you resist temptation and remain inside the divine dynasphere. You resist the devil by rebounding out of the cosmic system back into the spiritual system by simply acknowledging any known sin to God.
You resist the devil by persisting in the cognition of Bible doctrine. In spiritual infancy, this takes the form of the renovation of the thinking from cosmic psychological viewpoint into spiritual divine viewpoint.
In spiritual maturity it is the fulfillment of the protocol plan of God through the reception, retention, recall and application of doctrine that establishes and maintains momentum in the spiritual life.
