10 Doctrines Never Taught In The Old Testament Shaping The Mystery Doctrine Of The Church Age

“You and I are the light of the world,” “You and I are the salt of the earth.” Mat 5:13-14.

Pivot = made up of believers who have PVTD and realize that we also are spiritual citizens which gives us a dual citizenship.

First, our natural citizenship which commands us to obey and abide by the Laws of the land in the natural realm as a citizen of the nation that we are a part of; Rom 13:1-8; 1Ti 2:1-5.

The last 50 years is a time when unity and respect for authority has been under attack and appears to be winning according to sight, because the average believer lives in their emotions and their feelings while rejecting the mystery doctrine of the Church-age.

Mystery doctrines = ten special doctrines that were never taught in the Old Testament and were a mystery even to the apostles of Christ until the Apostle Paul came into the picture and taught the apostles and the disciples the mystery.

  1. The Baptism of the Spirit results in the creation of a New Spiritual Species and noted as The Royal Family of God.  

 

  1. The PPOG or the protocol plan or for abbreviation and simplicity, the PPOG is a unique plan that was created for The Royal Family of God only.  

 

PPOG one of the words that we must know and realize its impact is the word predestination which is the divine foreordaining of all that will happen, and it is for believers only.

 

Hyper-Calvinism =  God predestines some people to go to heaven and He predestines others to go to Hell, and that is a false doctrinal conclusion that even John Calvin rejected from Theodore Beza.

 

The second part of the mystery of the PPOG is that all believers have a particular plan that God chose for them and that is their PSD, personal sense of destiny.

 

The personal sense of destiny that the Lord promises His followers is finding your niche or your calling in life; Ecc 9:9.

 

Ecc 9:9  Enjoy life with the woman whom you love all the days of your fleeting life [right woman in time] which He [God] has given to you [believers or unbelievers] under the sun; for this is your reward in life, and in your toil in which you have labored under the sun.

 

  1. A phenomenal portfolio of invisible assets which belongs to each one of us as Royal Family of God.

 

  1. For the first time in history, every believer, regardless of his background, attainments or lack of attainments, handicaps, success, or any other distinguishing human factor, has equality given by God Himself.

 

  1. We have our unique royal commissions: royal priesthood and royal ambassadorship.

 

  1. We have the unique mystery doctrines of the Church Age as a whole.

 

  1. Every member of the Trinity indwells every believer.  

God the Father; Eph 4:6.

God the Son; Gal 2;20.

God the Holy Spirit; 1Co 6:19-20.

 

  1. We have the unique availability of divine power; Act 1:8.  

 

  1. This is the first time in history when there are no prophecies to be fulfilled during the Church-age.

 

  1. This is the dispensation of invisible heroes.  

 

PHI 1:29-30,   For to you it has been granted for Christ’s sake, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, experiencing the same conflict which you saw in me, and now hear to be} in me.

 

This is why Paul said in verse 24 that he had to go through certain sufferings in his flesh to reach a point where he was not lacking in Christ’s afflictions or he is accepting the sufferings he had been appointed by God to go through.

“Christ in us is called our hope or our confidence of the glory” which under mystery doctrine reveals that when we understand that Jesus Christ indwells us, that is the part of a mystery that even Adam and the woman never had.

It has the idea of working together to accomplish the same results.

It is the aorist active subjunctive of the Greek verb ‎paristemi which means to stand besides, to exhibit, recommend, to be at hand or ready at any time to be used by the Lord.

What is the goal of the pastor, but to present every believer that has been assigned to him as ‎teleios; mature, complete,  in labor, growth, mental and moral character, etc.

This is the purpose of finding your right pastor-teacher who we are told that the Holy Spirit has assigned a certain pastor to a certain group of people (Act 20:28) to a certain group of people and a certain group of people (1Pe 5:2-3) who have been assigned to a certain pastor.

 

  1. The baptism of the Spirit results in the creation of a new spiritual species and the royal family of God.  

 

  1. The protocol plan or PPOG is unique for the royal family of God only.  

 

  1. A phenomenal portfolio of invisible assets belongs to each one of us as royal family of God.

 

  1. For the first time in history, every believer, regardless of his background, attainments or lack of attainments, handicaps, success, or any other distinguishing human factor, has equality given by God Himself.

 

  1. We have our unique royal commissions: royal priesthood and royal ambassadorship.

 

  1. We have the unique mystery doctrines of the Church Age.

 

  1. Every member of the Trinity indwells every believer.  
  2. We have the unique availability of divine power.  

 

  1. This is the first time in history when there are no prophecies to be fulfilled during the Church Age.

 

  1. This is the dispensation of invisible heroes.  

PHI 3:20  For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

PHI 3:21   who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.

We also have a natural citizenship that is to respect the natural authority of the government we are under; Rom 13:1-8. 1Ti 2:1-2.

This is not talking about never breaking or never disagreeing with the laws of the land because we all do that in some ways, especially if we disagree with the government, this is in the present tense because this is an habitual resistance.

Where there is no authority there is anarchy, there is violence, there is burning of buildings, prejudice on all sides, stealing, destroying public property and the Christian way of life is hardly seen.

When authority is not held high but ignored, there is confusion, chaos, evil, law-breaking, sudden terror, consumption, fever, hate, hostility, plagues, sicknesses, sword.

 

This is followed by vengeance,  pestilence, wrath, weakness, no strength, implacability, lusts, impurity, indecent acts, depraved minds, unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil.

Then even believers become full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, untrustworthy, unloving. 

The shrinking pivot of believers become unmerciful, lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without selfcontrol.

They also become brutal, haters of good,  treacherous, reckless, conceited, and more than anything else they are lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.

2TI 3:5  This crowd of both believers and unbelievers hold to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and we are to avoid such individuals as these.

1PE 4:10   As each one has received a {special} gift, employ it in serving one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

The word to employ is the present active participle of diakoneo; to be an attendant, to wait upon others, to act as a Christian deacon. 

2TI 3:5  This crowd of both believers and unbelievers hold to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and we are to avoid such individuals as these.

Authority is our friend and it is for us.

Heb 13:7, “Remember those who rule over you, who communicate the Word from God to you; carefully consider the issue of their way of life; imitate their doctrine.”

You “remember” pastors by attending Bible class, by praying for them, and by understanding that they have an abnormal life.

The issue of a pastor’s way of life is their Bible doctrine not their way of life or their personal tastes in life.

Heb 13:17, “Keep obeying those [pastors] who themselves are ruling over you, and submit to their authority, for they keep watch over your souls, as those who will render an account.

Keep obeying them, in order that they may do this [accounting] with happiness and not with groaning, for this is unprofitable for you.”

Pastors don’t rule over you in the sense of telling you what to do, but in the sense of teaching you what God expects from you and how to execute His plan.

Isa 54:17,  “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper, and every tongue that rises against you in judgment, you will condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,’ declares the Lord.”

Since the pastor’s authority is Bible teaching, his ministry does not violate the privacy of the individual priesthood.  

1Pe 5:2, “Feed the flock of God among you, not from compulsion, but voluntarily according to the will of God.”

2Ti 4:2, “Preach the Word.  Be ready in season and out of season.  Reprove, rebuke, exhort [when warranted by context], and do this with all patience and teaching.”

1Ti 4:10,  “For because of this [communication of doctrine], we work hard to the point of exhaustion, and we hang in there tough because we have confidence in the living God who is the Savior of all men.”
