Our Lord has made us promises concerning His provisions for us in the natural realm as well as in the spiritual realm;
Our LORD has made pro
2Co 1:19 — the apostle Paul was teaching in the home churches in Corinth and that God is not a “yes man” or a “no man.”
What our Lord did choose is that all of God’s promises are yes, yes, and yes and not “No, no, and no; 2Co 1:19-20.
Our Lord told Paul to teach the believers in Corinth about agapao or impersonal love as well as the ability to forgive others and stop the divisions that existed among the house churches in Corinth; 1Co 13, PHI 1:9 1Th 5:9.
PHI 1:9 And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment.
1TH 4:9 Now as to the love of the brethren, you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves are taught by God to love one another;
These are two passages that God the Holy Spirit inspired the apostle Paul to put into writing concerning that agape love is not a feeling, but it is a system of thinking that needs to be taught.
JER 11:20 But, O Lord of hosts, who judges righteously, Who tries the feelings and the heart.
The Lord will test our emotions for us to see if we are either reacting in our emotions or responding with our emotions to the problems we face in life.
Epignosis doctrine = all believers need to be taught how to love, why do we love, where to love, when to love, and the result of love is found in why we at to love, how to love, Phi 1:9.
Based upon the two nouns in Phi 1:9.
Epignosis = Metabolized doctrine
Aisthesis = “spiritual discernment and intellectual understanding.”
God’s love comes from the heart or the right lobe of the soul which is the thinking part of the soul not the emotional part of the soul.
TIT 1:1 Paul, a bond‑servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those who have been chosen or elected by God and the knowledge of the truth, which is according to godliness,
TIT 1:2 in the hope of eternal life, which God, who cannot lie, promised long ages ago.
What He promises, HE will fulfill because the promises are based upon the character and the nature of the one who made hundreds of promises and who cannot lie.
All believers need natural logistics as well as spiritual logistics and divine blessings if they are to fulfill the PPOG for their life as well as discovering what our very own personal sense of destiny is; 1Pe 3-8; 2Pe 2-4.
Let’s look at another passage that Peter writes being influenced by God the Holy Spirit and the apostle Paul.
Great Commission: MAT 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,
MAT 28:20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
- Divine Solutions are given for the believer to handle any stress and adversity in life; 1Co 10:13; 1Jo 4:4; Psa 56:3‑4.
- There are times when solutions are not immediate but progressive and take a little longer than what we expected; Mat 18:12-13; Heb 10:35-39.
- Divine Solutions always provides for man and glorifies God. 2Co 12:9‑10; 2Co 4:8; 2Co 6:3-12.
- There are times when “Divine Solutions” are not immediate but progressive and take a little longer than what we expected; Mat 18:12-13; Heb 10:35-39.
- Divine Solutions always provides for man and glorifies God. 2Co 12:9‑10; 2Co 4:8; 2Co 6:3-12.
- Divine solutions have solved the total depravity of man regarding salvation and rebound; 1Co 3:1-3; Eph 4:22-24.
- God’s solutions are the only solutions that really matter. 2Co 2:12‑13; 2Co 7:5; Isa 55:7-8.
- Divine solutions also are always based upon grace minus human works. Rom 11:5-6.
- There are no emotions in the Divine Solutions; Rom 5:8; 1Pe 2:24.
Winners see the divine solutions while losers are guided by their emotions.
The emotions are tested by God; Jer 11:20; Rev 2:18-23.
Modified version = Rev 2:23 “Furthermore, I will execute her followers by means of death, and so all the churches will know that I am He who investigates the emotions and the heart or the right lobe.
Psa 7:9 “For the righteous God tests the right lobes and the emotions.”
If emotion responds to the right lobe you have a normal soul.
If emotion controls the soul you have an abnormal soul.
Psa 26:2, David said “Test my emotions and my right lobe.”
Jer 11:20 But, O Lord of hosts, who judges righteously, Who tries the feelings and the heart,
Kilyah in the feminine plural meaning a kidney as an essential organ; figuratively, the mind as the interior-self, reins, used of seat of emotion and affection.
JER 11:20 But, O Lord of hosts, who judges righteously, Who tries the feelings and the heart, Let me see Thy vengeance on them, For to Thee have I committed my cause.
JER 17:9 “The heart is more deceitful than all else and is desperately sick; Who can understand it?
JER 17:10 “I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give to each man according to his ways, According to the results of his deeds.
JER 20:12 Yet, O Lord of hosts, Thou who dost test the righteous, Who sees the emotions not mind and the heart.
He read your tape billions of years ago; you can never hide anything from Him; Eph 1:3-4.
- Prayer is not a solution in spiritual life. Mat 26:36‑42; Psa 22:1‑8.
- Everyone of us should use only divine solutions when tested. 1Co 10:13; 2Co 12:7‑9.
- All of should realize the tremendous omnipotence and omniscience concerning our Lord, as the Unique One of the universe or maybe even the universes.His deity was not able to sin; His humanity was able not to sin also known to you as the Doctrine of Kenosis and described for you with that very popular and wise statement made by Saint Augustine.
In His Hypostatic Union as the God-man, Jesus Christ was undiminished deity and true humanity in one person forever.
In His deity, it is impossible or our Lord to sin, therefore, “He is” and always “will be” “non posse peccare” which means that our Lord “was not able to sin.”
In His owever, humanity, He was also known as “posse non peccare” which means that our Lord was “able not to sin” in His human nature.
Our Lord was not able to sin because He is God and God cannot sin.
In His deity, “He is “non posse peccare” which means that our Lord “was not able to sin.”
“posse non peccare” = our Lord was “able not to sin” with His human nature even though He was tempted beyond anything we could ever imagine.
He willfully laid down His life for us and rejected all areas of the sin nature (areas of weakness or areas of strength), which can produce sin and evil and human good and therefore rejected by the Lord.
Truth is still being taught;
Doctrine is still changing people.
No one forced our Lord to go to the Cross.
Goal of Satan’s Deceptions = to destroy the different forms of intimacy, relationship and fellowship, that I gave you where Satan and the kingdom of darkness will attack whenever they can.
Goal = use satanic Deception to try and break down the unity that exists between believers and our Lord and promote the demonization of the soul and personality of the believers or unbelievers who are living in the cosmic system.
ROM 12:19 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.
There are also Degrees of Deception which is taught in passages like MAT 11:21-24.
MAT 11:22 “it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you [Pharisees].
Deception is thought transference of demon doctrine to the believer or unbeliever in the cosmic system.
Thought transference = I do not mean that you are thinking like members of the occult, but I am referring to human viewpoint or cosmic thinking.
Deception is the invasion of the soul, especially the mind, emotion, and self‑consciousness of the soul.
The result is the “invasion” of the human personality of the believer or unbeliever who lives in the cosmic system and grows weirder and weirder as time goes by, Deu 28:34.
He also warned them what would happen if they do not obey or if they did not respect and esteem His Word; Psa 56:4,10, Psa 138:2.
The negative side of what will happen if we refuse to honor and obey His word because the Divine Solutions are given to the believer as the remedy for any spiritual problems or sicknesses that may come our way.
God the Holy Spirit inspired Moses to use a very powerful word in the Hebrew language to describe what will ultimately happen to God’s people if they reject and ignore His ways and that is the word shiggaon.
Shiggaonshagar = a word that means to go nuts, crazy, to be unstable, to be bipolar, in the natural realm as well as the spiritual realm, it means to be depressed and to a life filled with habitual lies.
DEU 28:34 “And you shall be driven mad by the sight of what you see.”
Shiggaon = which means to drive a person mad or crazy, to experience severe changes in mood, activity, energy, and ability and ending up, of course, with the blame game to make excuses for being a complete loser and failure.
Shiggaon believer = ends up attacking others because they ar jealous and vindictive and because they have no spiritual self-esteem at all, and because of that they are also liars, phonies, and hypocrites.
The shiggaon believer lives in Denial which is a defense mechanism in which a person fails to acknowledge some aspect of external reality that is obvious and apparent to others.
The Shiggaon Projection is a defense mechanism by which a person takes their own flaws, sins and failures and assigns or projects them to others.
There is also what psychology calls “Direct Attack” which is a defense mechanism in which anger is used as a solution to the problems and frustrations of life.
Psychosomatics which means that how and what we think can produce physical reactions that are caused or aggravated by a mental factor such as internal conflict or stress.
Deception is not only expressed in terms of evil but, it also expressed in terms of improving this world, doing nice things for your fellow man, and supporting crusades.
That, my friends is what we use to call in Bible college “A Landmark Message.”
Deception = the invasion of the soul with thought that is false thinking, i.e., the policy and principles by which Satan operated prior to the creation of man and afterwards as the ruler of this world.
Under diving timing, they will be able to bear and accept whatever it is that the Lord desires for us them to bear and to accept.
Eph 4:14, We are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;
2Pe 3:17, You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the deception of unprincipled men [men with no principles], you fall from your own steadfastness,
Only the truth can keep false thinking and false doctrine out of the soul.
Deception = a process of demonization in which every facet of the soul is eventually controlled by demonic doctrine, so that there is a complete personality change to some form of sociopathic or psychopathic personality.
