Basic principles the Lord has established which guarantee that the human race will never self-destruct.
Thursday, May 29, 2008
Point 1. The continuation of the universe and all of its creatures and the state of the atmosphere depends upon the essence of God, namely the omnipotence and immutability of Jesus Christ, COL 1:17; HEB 1:3.
Point 2. Jesus Christ controls history, not the “so called” scientific laws which simply do not exist.
Point 3. So-called scientific laws are based on the statistical assumption that the universe, which operates according to a fixed norm, will continue to do so.
Point 4. The universe with its matter, energy, and operating laws of God will not always exist as it does at the present time, 2PE 3:10-12; REV 21:1.
Point 5. Known scientific laws and phenomena, which man has been able to observe, classify, recognize and interpret, depend entirely upon the faithfulness of God.
Point 6. It is by the word of God which has never failed and will never fail that Jesus Christ holds the universe together, HEB 1:3.
Point 7. Why the Lord Jesus Christ is holding the universe together.
a. Jesus Christ is holding the universe together to resolve the angelic conflict in human history and to bring many sons into glory, HEB 2:10.
b. The Lord Jesus Christ is holding the universe together in order to allow grace, which began with the Holy Spirit radiating heat over the ice pack, to run its full course until He destroys the universe by nuclear fission at the end of history.
Point 8. The so-called scientific laws then belong to TLJC who is the one who sustains the universe.
Point 9. Scientific laws are simply the faithfulness of TLJC holding the universe together and at the same time holding back eternity.
Point 10. This doctrine explains the simplicity of miracle working for TLJC.
A miracle is an event that contradicts known scientific laws and is thought to be due to supernatural causes, especially an act of God.
LUK 8:25 “He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey Him?”
He controls the sea, JOB 26:10; PSA 33:7.
He controls the storms, PSA 65:7; PSA 107:29.
He controls the wind, PSA 148:8; MAR 4:39.
It may because you have rejected the word of God which has never failed and will never fail and instead you have chosen to live in self-justification, self-deception, and self-absorption.
ISA 44:20 He feeds on ashes; a deceived heart has turned him aside. And he cannot deliver himself, nor say, “Is there not a lie in my right hand?”
These mental attitude sins include arrogance, pride, jealousy, implacability, bitterness, vindictiveness, inordinate ambition and inordinate competition, all motivational sins, and sinful thoughts such as fear, guilt, worry, anger, judging, hatred, even murder.
Character is the result of two things, mental attitude and how we spend our time.
Because our Lord Jesus Christ controls history, as a part of our Lord’s divine protection of man, He protects the human race from self-destruction.
When man takes his own negative decisions to their logical conclusion, it is total destruction of the human race.
So our Lord Jesus intervenes at times with divine judgment.
These judgments, divine judgments, protect the human race from self-destruction while at the same time cleansing the human race from elements that would destroy it.
Because Jesus Christ controls history, no nation or race ever experiences a catastrophe unless TLJC chooses or allows for it to happen.
The biblical interpretation of history must be related to God, the angelic conflict, the unseen world of angels and the visible world of mankind.
To see history objectively we must possess the divine viewpoint from doctrine.
We must understand such subjects like the angelic conflict, the first advent, the cross, the second advent, dispensations, etc.
Your job is to discover and recognize God’s place for you and to do so you must be able to correctly interpret history and events that have happened, are happening, and will happen in your life.
To correctly interpret history one must understand the Church-age, the Royal Family of God......the times of the Gentiles.
