Smyrna, the pivot for SPQR part 23; The faith rest drill

2Tim 3 12-13; Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
Because evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

Amos 8:11-12; "Behold, days are coming," declares the Lord God, "When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the Lord.

12 "People will stagger from sea to sea And from the north even to the east; They will go to and fro to seek the word of the Lord, But they will not find it.

Romans 1:18; For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,

Eph 6:10-12; Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His omnipotent power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

James 1:19-20; You know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God.

Rom 12:18-21; If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.

20 "But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head." 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

The leftists say they want unity but the only place where there can be any unity is if they agree with us that the Laws of Divine Establishment as written in the Constitution by our founders is the Law of the land and does not need any change.

Eph 4:13; until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ.

Apart from that there must be division. 1Cor 11:19; For there must also be factions among you, so that those who are approved among you may become evident.

John 14:27; "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

1John 4:4; You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

We are in a study on Smyrna, the base of the pivot power for the first gentile client nation SPQR. We are in Rev 2:10; that starts with the mandate "not to fear what you are about to suffer"

This took us to study that of the faith rest drill where last time we noted that three things are necessary for the believer to utilize the shield of faith: the foundation of humility, professionalism that is comprised of the knowledge of how to deploy faith-rest, and the virtue and integrity that is the product of the spiritual life that gives the faith-rest drill the power that is required for it to function.

This not only applies to the faith-rest drill but to all of the problem solving devices. Humility is the foundation for synchronizing professionalism and integrity so that so that God is glorified by the cognition and execution of His protocol plan.

Professionalism is the academic understanding and mechanics of the protocol plan of God. It is cognition of the spiritual skills and how they combine to provide spiritual power and production of divine good. Professionalism means learning and accepting the whole realm of doctrine. Professionalism is the understanding of mechanics without the power to execute those mechanics.

On the foundation of humility, there must also be integrity. Integrity is the spiritual strength to execute the mechanics of the protocol plan of God. It is the use of spiritual power from metabolized doctrine to execute God's will for our lives. This spiritual power and energy is derived only from metabolized doctrine only as it circulates through the stream of consciousness under the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

All spiritual growth and greatness is found in the spiritual strength to execute the mechanics of the faith-rest drill. You get your spiritual strength from the repetitive inculcation of the whole realm of doctrine. It is possible to know the mechanics and not have the spiritual strength to execute it.

While professionalism develops the ability to conceptualize Bible doctrine, integrity or spiritual strength from doctrine executes these things in glorifying God

Professionalism without integrity is arrogance. Integrity without professionalism is emotionalism. The application of metabolized doctrine to stress conditions demands the coordination of professionalism and integrity on the foundation of humility.

The distractions to the execution of the faith-rest drill start with self-absorption from the function of the arrogance complex of sins that causes rational thought to be overthrown and put out of action from lack of the ten problem solving devices on the FLOT line of the soul to act as an instant reaction force to prevent the outside pressures of adversity becoming the inside pressures of stress in your soul.

This results in the thinking being dominated by the emotional complex of sins that activation the demand syndrome, in which we expect our wishes that are often just the lust patterns of the sin nature to be met and gratified.

Failure to take the responsibility for your own bad decisions results in the projection of the blame for your bad situation that was caused by making bad decisions from a position of weakness on to other people or circumstances.

This is followed by a loss of reality through denial and taking your own flaws, projecting them on other people and then blaming them for your problems.

Lack of niche orientation from God's protocol plan results in no capacity for prosperity from God's blessing.

Rejection of legitimate authority and control results in a constant lust for change. The purpose of God's protocol plan is divine control of your life, not change. The purpose of God's protocol plan is for you to understand God's will in your life and then to respond to it from own free volition, It is not a change in your personality.
