I would like you to look at some of the statements that I made on Sunday morning as well as some of the new principles that we will note this evening.

Blessings from our Lord is like Jesus being born of a woman so that you and I could be born of God and not born of man.

Thinking that you and I could be lifted up NOT by means of pride resulting from their arrogance but by means of praying and studying  about God's  plan for the human race.

For many of you have been taught to study and teach; study and teach, etc. as we go forward in "The Pre-designed Plan of God" and "as we live and move and have our being magnified in Him.

"Personal Sense of Destiny"  = "has been created" just for you and just for me as we are able to learn about our "very own Personal Sense of Destiny."

The majority of  believers "can" and "will"  prepare themselves for "anything that our Lord desires" or "for anyone of us who also glorifies our Lord so that we are both ready.

It is the "glorification of our Lord and Savior "working together with Him so that as we are working  together with Him so that we can do so as far as His precious blood is concerned besides Him".

We can also thank God for the many areas of our life that He gives to us as well as with or without us -- even those who throughout the "Word of God,"  live in the Truth that can set us free.

As we go forward in the "Predesigned plan of God, "as well as to learn about "our very own "Personal Sense of Destiny," no matter WHO and WHAT that "Sense of Destiny" may be.

It is "WHO and WHAT"  that plan may be for "all of us to be reminded of"  and for "all of us to be just and righteous"  as well as we can be -- with or without us.

"You can have it, if you want it!

Either way, it is yours!
Either way, it is mine!

"The Lord Jesus Christ" said that He became a man so that the man could become a servant and that is why a servant could be made an Heir or a joint heir with Him.

Our Lord "became an heir" which refers to an inner heir as we go forward in the plan of God and the Finest glorification of the entire Trinity.

As we go forward in God's plan, which is the fact that our Lord suffered rejection so that we could become one of His True friends.

He denied Himself so that we could freely receive all things.

He gave Himself so that He could bless us in every way.

Our true enemy is invisible and is as strong that the Satanic Forces that we have are here and they are not friendly.

The Bible is not only a complete and accurate message from our Lord but it is also that which reveals to us that the Bible is "The very mind or the "Very Thinking  of our Lord Jesus Christ."

He also has called us to think with His mind which I call  "The Mind of Christ; 1CO 2:16.

Another meaning of the word "nuggets" refers to anything of great value, significance, or nuggets of wisdom.

1CO 2:16  "For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he should instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ.

This is the mind or thinking that Paul commanded those believers who lived in Philippi to function under = PHI 2:5  Have this attitude or this mind in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus.

Our Lord made His Word available to all mankind so that the Bible is "alive and powerful"  for all those who desire to know "God's Truth" which is alive and powerful.

JOH 7:17  "If any man is willing to do His will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or {whether} I speak from Myself."

Jer 29:11  'For I know the plans that I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans for [peace or prosperity] not welfare and not for calamity or evil to give you a future and a hope.

JER 15:16  "Your [wordsdoctrines] were found and I ate them or metabolized them, And Your words [Doctrines] became for me Joy or happiness and was the delight of my heart;

Jeremiah = "For I have been called by Your  name, O Lord God of HOSTS hosts or O Lord of the armies."

JER 3:14  "Return, O faithless sons,' declares the Lord; 'For I am a master to you, And I will take you one from a city and two from a family, And I will bring you to Zion."

JER 3:16   "And it shall be in those days when you are multiplied and increased in the land," declares the Lord, "they shall say no more,

It shall not come to mind, nor shall they remember it, nor shall they miss {it,} nor shall it be made again.

"The ark of the covenant of the Lord shall not come to mind, nor shall they remember it, nor shall they miss {it,} nor shall it be made again.

JER 3:17   "At that time they shall call Jerusalem the Throne of the Lord,' and all the nations will be gathered to it, to Jerusalem, for the name of the Lord; nor shall they walk anymore after the stubbornness of their evil heart.

Let me break this down a little more so that we can see what the prophet Jeremiah saw in the spiritual realm and so that we can hear the voice of God the Holy Spirit."

JER 15:16   God's word became a manifestation of spiritual metabolism when the communicator of doctrine, Jeremiah,  said that believers need to learn and to apply and eat the spiritual Food that the Lord has eaten.

Jeremiah = "God's Word"  became an expression of the "Inner Happiness" that exists when we study the "Word of God" as it becomes the "Joy and the Delight" of our hearts."

The four Gospels were recognized by the "Old Testament Prophets" as well as the "Early Church Fathers"  who identified the meaning and the Typology that was involved in the "Word of God."

The Word has 66 books written by 40 the forty different authors who have written about the "Word of God" which is "Alive and Cooking" or "Alive and Powerful."

  1. The Gospel of Matthew identified by the Lion.
    2. The Gospel of Mark identified by an Ox.
  2. "Gospel of John" = recognized and identified by the eagle or that manifestation of our Lord who "rose above"  all the problems of life.

It doesn't matter whether these problems were natural or spiritual.

"Are you living in The Ultimate Problem Solving Device"
Do you have Occupation with the Lord Jesus Christ“

We need to understand that all of these are needed if the believer desires to learn and apply them."

They have taught God's Word in spirit [pneuma] and in truth [feminine Greek noun aletheia correctly translated truth or doctrine.

The fact that the plan of God for our life will go on "with or without us."

ISA 40:31 "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.

This passage also describes one of the main functions of  the eagle, which is the fact that, just like the eagle rises up and above, the mature believer will rise above the problems he faces.

If there are even more of these principles to learn and to apply as we will mount up with wings like eagles and as we learn to apply these principles to living the spiritual life;

The Lord has created fantastic blessings for every one of us who desire the fact that we will run and not get tired, We will walk and not become weary.

As a mature believer,  anyone of  us  can rise above any of the problems that we face in life because as the eagle soars upward, the eagle also is a symbol of resurrection life or the ascension of Christ.

The eagle also symbolizes believers who have symbolically died and risen with Christ.

Not only is the eagle taught in the New Testament,  it also is found in the Old Testament in passages like EZE 1:10 and how the cherub angel is used.

It is like having the spiritual life right by your side as you always remember that many of these nuggets serve us at certain times when God sees fit to reveal to us and to others the importance of the Truth.

Jesus was born of a woman so you and I could be born again this time for God.

He humbled Himself so that we could be lifted up.

He became a servant so that we could be made joint heirs with Him.

He suffered rejection so that we could become His friends.

He denied Himself so that we could freely receive all things.

He gave Himself over to the enemies of our Lord so that He could bless us in every way.

For in the Gospel of John concerning the truth of God, we all need to understand that some of the words or the doctrines that we use, reveals the relationships we all must face at certain times in our spiritual life.

An example of this principle is found in JOH 1:14, where we read:  "The Word became flesh [True humanity], and dwelt or tabernacled among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth =  charis [grace] and aletheia [Truth].

JOH 1:17  "For the Law [Torah] was given through Moses; grace and truth or charis and aletheia were realized through Jesus Christ."

You will never realize the power that you have when you grow in  charis [grace] and aletheia [Truth] until you recognize and identify those who are able to rightly divide the Word of Truth.

The "Word of God"  says that these type of individuals are what "God the Father"  is said to seek out from those who desire to worship Him.

JOH 8:31  "If you abide in My word [Third Class Condition = "maybe you will abide -- maybe you will not] however,  if you do then our Lord said you are truly disciples of His."

JOH 8:32  our Lord said  "Then you shall know the [aletheia = Truth] and the aletheia [Truth] shall set you free.

Our Lord also identified Satan also known as the devil in JOH 8:44 when he said to the scribes and the Pharisees;  "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father.  

 "Their father, the devil, was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own {nature;} for he is a liar, and the father of lies.

JOH 14:16   "And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;

One of the pastors, who really did not know anything about the original language, said that the Holy Spirit is called a parakletos not a parakeet (NOT).

One of the titles of the Holy Spirit is the noun parakletos not parakeet, and parakletos is one of the reasons why we can function in spiritual warfare.

Parakletos is said to be an intercessor; a consoler,'  an advocate,  or even a comforter.

Parakletos = used for one who pleads another's cause before a judge, a pleader, counsel for defense, legal assistant; an advocate"

When it is our Lord or God the Holy Spirit or God the Father on the one hand, or Satan or the devil, on the other hand.

All of those who are involved with the different principles and definitions that are given have a function that takes place in a courtroom, whether it is a human court or an angelic court.

There is no way for any believer to fulfill and execute the plan of God if they do not know or do not understand the "Plan of God" a well as the Angelic Conflict.

For the Angelic Conflict is the reason why man was created which was to glorify our Lord in the midst of the devil's world in the entire Doctrine of the Angelic Conflict.

This principle is that the Holy Spirit is destined to take the place of Christ with the apostles but only after His ascension to the Father.

The Holy Spirit will lead them to a deeper knowledge of gospel truth, and to give them the divine strength needed to enable them to undergo trials and persecutions on behalf of the divine kingdom.

JOH 14:26  "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you.

Concerning judgment because the god of this world; Satan, has been judged so that in Joh 16:8 we read;  "And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment;

Joh 16:8,  those three principles refer to the three different categories that our Lord had to deal with;  Sin, Righteousness, and Judgment;

In JOH 16:9, our Lord said concerning sin, because they did not believe in Him,

God the Holy Spirit is said to reveal to us the fact that we have to overcome the sin of unbelief; concerning judgment because the god of this world has been judged.

MAT 10:19  "But when they deliver you up to judgment , do not become anxious about how or what you will speak; for it shall be given you in that hour what you are to speak.

MAT 10:20  "For it is not you who speak, but {it is} the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.

MAR 13:11 "And when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not be anxious beforehand about what you are to say, but say whatever is given you in that hour; for it is not you who speak, but {it is} the Holy Spirit.

LUK 12:11  "And when they bring you before the synagogues and the rulers and the authorities, do not become anxious about how or what you should speak in your defense, or what you should say;

LUK 12:12  for the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say."

JOH 15:26 "When the Helper comes [the helper‎parakletos = an intercessor,  a consoler, advocate,  and most of all, a comforter because the god of this world has been judged.

He is never called by our Lord what the cults call Him which is a force or a power or an influence -- but not a person!
