I would like to give you a guideline to follow in a Chronological order so that we can all be on the same page together.

  1. We began with a period of time before the creation of the world and before the creation of Angels; Pro 8.

 

  1. We saw the consistency of the Elect and the fallen angels after they fell and observed the fall of man after then they disturbed themselves consistently.

 

  1. The Lord in the Old Testament especially under the Mosaic Law.

 

  1. Theophany = The person and the life of God found overtly in the Old Testament.

 

  1. Biological life = extension of the Mother’s life within her body.

 

  1. Life in the womb = Fen extensions

 

  1. Results of the Virgin Pregnancy

 

  1. Our Lord and life in the Virgin Birth

 

  1. Our Lord for the first 12 twelve years

 

  1. The silence of Christ from 12-30

 

  1. life of Christ 30-33 AD

 

  1. His cross to bear while living;

 

  1. His cross to bear while He is dying

 

  1. His resurrection — ascension — session.

 

  1. Life in the beginning before the Church-age.

 

How important you really are in the eyes of the Lord, and how He desires for all of you to fulfill the calling of God and to join Him in the victories that He has already won.

 

One of the most important dispensations of all = the dispensation of the hypostatic union.

 

This is such an important principle of doctrine seeing that it leads us to our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, who is coming back to set up His kingdom on this earth.

The epistle of  the Phillipians is one of the most gracious passages found in the “Word of God” that also ministers to all of us if we desire to be ministered to.

 

Let me point out some of these principles of doctrine so that Zwe all will grow together as we want to worship our Lord and bring honor and glory to Him as a part of us growing spiritually.

Something that is very vital for us to listen to or to learn from — which also contributes the power we need to understand our Lord as well as the place and the role that believers HAVE.

 

One of those vital reasons of the plan of God has to do with having  balance in living the spiritual life that our Lord places before us.

 

PRO 11:1  A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, But a just weight is His delight.

 

Balance: We are not to pick up and choose the doctrines that we are to learn and study or the doctrines that we like, we are to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to the Church.

 

When it comes to The Word of God, we need to look upon  what our Lord has to say to us not what we want Him to say.

 

PRO 30:5   Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him. (KJ’s)

 

Look at some of the reasons that we have to keep certain blessings and promises in front of us — as we grow in the “Word of God”  which is “Alive and Cooking” as our Lord has taught us many times before.

 

One of the main functions of living the spiritual life is that we are to master the principles of Bible doctrine so that we can “hear or see” the life of God in the souls of man.”

 

God not only provides doctrinal answers for all us but He also provides everything that we need to understand the doctrine so that we simply need to apply what we have learned.

 

His desire for us is to learn from each other how to know what we need to know because there is a spiritual solution to any problem that we may face.

 

Both of them have a great story to tell others about the “Word of God” which gives us great doctrinal views even though they may be difficult and hard to understand at certain times.

 

This this section of the “Word of God” is a question concerning Chronology which is a part of the” order of the Divine Interpretations of the passage or the principles which we have been studying.

Here is a simple outline of the dispensation that we are noting which is the dispensation of the hypostatic Union which refers to “Undiminished Deity and True Humanity” of our Lord forever.

 

  1. First of all, We began with a period of time before the creation of the world and before the creation of the Angels, as we have noted;   Pro 8:1-36.

 

We noted some of the functions and responsibilities of the angels in eternity past before their rebellion when Satan convinced one third of God’s angels to rebel against our Lord, and they did so.

 

REV 12:4  “And his tail swept away a third of the stars (angels) of heaven, and threw them to the earth.

 

Eventually, every angel had made a choice to either follow our Lord or reject our Lord and follow Satan and the Kingdom of darkness.

The Angels are divided into two categories, either the Elect Angels or the fallen angels and this is also why the human race is divided into two categories;  Believers or unbelievers.

What is it that the angelic race has in common with the human race?

Both the angels and the human race, whether fallen angels or elect angels or believers and unbelievers, the one major doctrinal issue and the similarity is Volition or the free will to choose.

  1. This is why many of the Jews followed our Lord as He was presented the doctrinal views in the Old Testament especially under the Mosaic Law.

1CO 1:22  For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom;

 

Because the Jews look for  prophecy and because the Jews are said to the nation of God then the Lord revealed a lot of prophecy that was used by the Old Testament Prophets to reveal the truth.

Isa 40:22, God claims that the earth is round, Isa 40:22.

Isa 40:22  “It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers.”

It wasn’t until the year, 1519-1521 that a Portuguese navigator, Fernando Magellan was the first to circle the earth.

We also have observed  ISA 40:21   Do you not know? Have you not heard? Has it not been declared to you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

ISA 40:22  It is He who sits above the vault of the earth, And its inhabitants are like grasshoppers, Who stretches out the heavens like a curtain And spreads them out like a tent to dwell in.

In Job 26:7, God claims that the earth is suspended on nothing but in space.

Job 26:7  “He stretches out the north over empty space, and hangs the earth on nothing.”

Ancient science said the earth was supported on the backs of elephants, turtles, serpents, etc. It was not until modern times that the earth was found to be suspended in empty space.

In Job 28:25, God claims that the air has weight. Job 28:25 “He imparted weight to the wind, and meted out the waters by measure.”

The fact that air has weight was not demonstrated until Pascal in 1648 proved that it did.

In Job 28:7, God claims that the vulture is guided by his sight; Job 28:7  The path no bird of prey knows, nor has the falcon’s eye caught sight of it.

Until recently it was believed that the vulture could scent from far away, but now modern science has proved that the vulture is guided rather by his “keenness of sight.”

In Daniel 12:4, God claims that in the time of the end “many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

Dan 12:4  “But as for you, Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”

ISA 40:31  Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.

Isa 60:8  Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like the doves to their lattices?

ISA 40:31 was actually a verse used by the Jews to persuade other Jews in Arabia to return to their homeland in Israel by airplane.

ISA 40:31  Yet those who wait for the Lord Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.

In Nahum 2:4, referring to the Assyrian war chariots, God foreshadows fast transportation, possibly the automobile.

Nahum 2:4  The chariots race madly in the streets, they rush wildly in the squares, their appearance is like torches, they dash to and fro like lightning flashes.

  1. We will also study what is known as a Theophany identified by the title called “The Angel of the Lord” or “The Angel of God.”

Being a Theophany can also take the form of hiding in the clouds in the daytime or the pillar of fire in the night.

  1. As a part of our Lord’s birth, there is also Biological life which is the extension of the woman’s life, it is not a human life or human soul until the fetus comes forth “from the womb.”

And then you have neshumah, the breath of life imputed to you.

This is when your life truly began because there is life in the womb but it is biological life which is the extension of the woman’s life.

It is not a human life or a human soul until the fetus comes forth from the woman and then you have neshumah, the breath of life imputed to you.

  1. Life in the womb -we will note.
  2. Virgin Pregnancy
  3. Virgin Birth
  4. Our Lord’s life for the first 12 years

 

  1. The silence and preparation of Christ from 12-30
  2. life of Christ 30-33 AD
  3. His cross to bear while living

 

  1. His cross to bear while dying
  2. His Resurrection, Ascension-Session
  3. Life in the beginning with the Church-age

That is not a mistake,  it is the exact number that the Lord uses to guide others concerning what they should be focusing upon, not money but principle.

It is here that we focus in on an individual who wants to play with money or dollars and prosperity but instead they fell into it the deception and the lies that “loser believers” also fall into.

Many of them have become like the implacable, arrogant, self-righteous  types of pastors who are in danger of ignoring God’s plans as well as the fact that they ignore such questions.

Do not get involved with the evil and the lies that come from the Cosmic System such as the mis-handling of the funds and blessings principle of playing the numbers game which some believers have used to try and get ahead of in life.

What are you going to do with all of that money?

Answer = you start to make things with it.

The ancient Greeks had a custom of converting a large accumulation of gold into shields and spears or other paraphernalia.

The forest of Lebanon was one of his out-of-town hunting lodges.

The man about whom this is written was a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Solomon was the most glamorous king that the Jews ever had.

While we do not know exactly when he alienated himself from God, there are several passages of Scripture that give us some indication.

One reference is obvious from verse 17 as ivory and gold throne was not for comfort.

Anyone who demands for himself an ivory chair overlaid with gold.

If you were that close to Solomon, you were there by kneeling.

Years ago, I remember this passage and up to now we are understand everything that was brought in, but what about the apes and peacocks.

Notice it wasn’t elephants and lions;

It wasn’t tigers and bears -but APES AND PEACOCKS!

 

OUR Lord DOES have a sense of humor and it is a part..

The entire Trinity was involved with the many laughs that our Lord revealed through-out the Old and New Testament.

Peacocks strutting down the gangplank, each led by a slave; and apes in large cages, scratching and growling, rattling the bars.

The apes and peacocks were the ultimate in status symbols, the final touch in Solomon’s extravaganzas.

In the ancient world, apes and peacocks represented the principle of fun and entertainment.

For Solomon, however, they represented the principle of boredom and the frantic search for happiness.

The epistle of  the Phillipians is one of the most gracious passages found in the “Word of God” that also ministers to all of us if we desire to be ministered to.

Let me point out some of these principles of doctrine so that we all will grow together as we want to worship our Lord and bring honor and glory to Him as a part of us growing spiritually.

That is something that is very vital for us to listen to or to learn from — which also contributes the power we need to understand our Lord as well as the place and the role that believers who are serious about the calling of God have upon their life.

This is another reason for us to go forward in the plan of God and one those vital reasons of the plan of God has to do with having  balance in living the spiritual life that our Lord places before us.
