Oregon Conference 2005. Part 4. The Doctrine of Invisible Heroes. Saturday PM, November 11, 2005.

Oregon Conference 2005. Part 4.

Point 5. Failure to Become an Invisible Hero means you are a loser.

The spiritual gift of pastor-teacher has been given.
Its purpose is to dig out, categorize, exegete, and teach God’s plan for your life.

The trouble with the Church-age believer today is twofold: because of negative volition, he cannot learn Bible doctrines that are too complicated, and he forgets Bible doctrines that are too simple.

GAL 5:4 “You who are trying to be justified by the Law have become alienated from Christ, you have drifted off course from grace.”

HEB 12:15“coming short of the grace of God.”
The loser believer is described as “the tormented soul,” 2PE 2:7-9.

The loser believer is described as “the lukewarm believer,” REV 3:15-16.

The unstable soul, JAM 1:8; JAM 4:8 – dipsuchos = to have two souls; a description of a psychotic or neurotic condition.

The loser believer is described as pushing aside the spiritual life and “a shipwrecked believer,” 1TI 1:19.

The loser believer is described as advancing out-of-bounds, 2Jo 8-9.

Point 6. The Personal Sense of Destiny of the Invisible Hero.

It is that standard of thinking from doctrine that gives the invisible impact of the invisible hero, that provides his spiritual function, his utilization of the problem-solving devices, and his invisible impact in five categories.

JOH 15:16 “You did not choose Me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and {that} your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask of the Father in My name, He may give to you.”

EPH 1:18 “That the eyes of your right lobe may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”

EPH 3:16 “That He may give you, on the basis of the riches in glory, to become strong by means of power through His Spirit in your inner being.”

All the disasters from involvement in cosmic one, cosmic two, and reversionism will be added to your life.

Your destiny was assigned to you in eternity past when God provided for you your very own portfolio of invisible assets.

a. Providential preventative suffering.
b. Momentum testing.
c. Evidence testing.

Your personal sense of destiny is related to your cognition of the mystery doctrine of the Church-age.

Point 7. The Death of the Invisible Hero.

In the PPOG, physical death is God’s victory for every believer, both winners and losers.

a. From the viewpoint of spiritual growth.
The life beyond gnosis, EPH 3:17, from salvation to spiritual maturity.
The life beyond dreams, EPH 3:20, from spiritual maturity to physical death or the Rapture.

b. From the viewpoint of spiritual experience.
The living stage –
PHI 1:21a “For me living is Christ.”
The dying stage –
PHI 1:21b “and dying is profit.”

The dying stage of the PPOG begins at the point when we are aware (or unaware) that we are dying, and continues until the point of physical death or the Rapture, whichever occurs first.

During the living stage, the believer has full use of his volition to execute the PPOG under equal privilege and equal opportunity.

The dying stage of the PPOG is a matter of the sovereign decision of God, based on His omnipotence, wisdom, and integrity.

PSA 116:15 “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”

The only preparation for dying is spiritual preparation, which means the execution of the PPOG, becoming an invisible hero, and glorifying Him.

We have two testimonies: a living and a dying testimony.

2CO 5:8 – all believers, winners and losers alike, are “absent from the body and face to face with the Lord.”

REV 21:4“no more sorrow, no more tears, no more pain, no more death; the old things have passed away.”

“We do not sorrow as those who have no hope,” 1TH 4:13.

JOB 1:21 “The Lord gave; the Lord has taken away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.”

The death of the invisible hero is classified as dying grace.
