Gen 32:1-2 Now as Jacob went on his way, the angels of God met him. Jacob said when he saw them, “This is God’s camp.” So he named that place Mahanaim.
Gen 32:7 Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed; and he divided the people who were with him, and the flocks and the herds and the camels, into two companies;
Any soul where fear, shame, guilt or arrogance lives (lifestyle) is a soul that the 10PSD has never taken root in.
What you practice & apply in times of mild confrontation or uncertainty is what you will apply during real adversity!
Gen 32:24 Then Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. Our reactive OSN pushes God into
aggressive action in our lives.
Gen 33:3 But he himself passed on ahead of them and bowed down to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother. When Bels ignore BD they end up surrendering to OSN & cosmic system.
Noah, Moses, Joseph, even Peter and Paul all displayed application of the 10PSD within their spiritual walks.
1.REBOUND -1Jo 1:9 covers the basic principle of naming and citing a sin for the dual purpose of restoring fellowship and pushing the Bel directly into filling of HS
2.Filling of the HS only occurs when our fellowship with God is intact. It is a guaranteed source of truth & spiritual
assistance forever...Joh 14:16-17
PARAKLETOS (helper)- intercessor, assistant, advocate (legal) or counselor and comforter.
Knowing the HS is at your beck & call should develop spiritual confidence if the Bel is applying BD (1Cor 3:16 & 1Joh 4:4)
1Co 2:5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. FAITH REST 3.
Heb 4:12-16 principles are at the core of a Bel’s faith…the power & depth, the truth that exposes Satan’s system, knowing nothing is hidden from God. All are building blocks of stronger faith.
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are
Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Joh 10:9 “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.
NOME –pasture, (Gr noun) for a place of feeding…all your supplies given, needs being met, growth and life. Jo 10:9
Psa 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD;And He will give you the desires of your heart.
Trust in the Lord…lean on Him, He will make your path straight Pro 3:5-6. Have a commitment to God He will establish your plans. Pro 16:3
Phi 4:6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Eph 2:8- 9 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 4 Grace Orientation
But you first have to recognize what real grace is…Joh 3:16. A gift, given with no strings, completely undeserved, unconditional love at its divine best!
Joh 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing. 5 Doctrinal Orientation
MENO –(abide) continue, it points to endurance, to remain steadfast, to remain as one not to become different or change, to last or survive.
Truth that leads to wisdom is a priority but it is only fulfilled through the Word of God Psa 51:5-6, Pro 23:23, Pro 2, Pro 4 & etc.
The world promotes the exact opposite of truth…it is hostile toward truth, OSN/cosmic system is an enemy of truth Rom 8:5-7
Joh 3:15 so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. 6 Personal Sense of destiny
1Co 2:12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the hings freely given to us by God,- we were designed to know truth!
Joh 16:15 All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.- many Bels have spiritual I.Q.’s just gathering dust.
1Jo 4:19 We love, because He first loved us. 7 Personal Love for God. Recognize His love and you will fall in love with Him.
Mat 5:44 “But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 8 Impersonal love for all mankind
Luk 6:27 But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
Luk 23:34 But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.
Rom 12:14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. You do not do this with emotional human love.
Joh 15:12“This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.
Joh 15:11 “These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full. 9 Perfect Happiness.
Pro 3:13 How blessed is the man who finds wisdom. And the man who gains understanding.
1Tim 6:6 But godliness actually is a means of great gain when accompanied by contentment.
God Father sets this relationship up with TLJC./Joh 14:21 He who has My commandments and keeps them is the one who
loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him.”
Rom 8:39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
