1Ti 5:17  Those pastor-teachers who have ruled well with the result that they keep ruling honorably, they must be considered worthy of double honor most of all those who work hard to the point of exhaustion in the study of the word and the teaching of doctrine.

1TI 5:18  For the Scripture says "You shall not muzzle the bull while he is threshing," also " The laborer is worthy of his wages."

GAL 6:6  And let the one who is taught the word share all good things with him who teaches.

AMP - Phi 4:15  And you Philippians yourselves well know that in the early days of the Gospel ministry, when I left Macedonia, no church [assembly] entered into partnership with me and opened up [a debit and credit] account in giving and receiving except you only.

PHI 4:17 Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account.

AMP PHI 4:17  Not that I seek or am eager for [your] gift, but I do seek and am eager for the fruit which increases to your credit [the harvest of blessing that is accumulating to your account].

PHI 4:18 But I have received everything in full, and have an abundance; I am amply supplied, having received from Epaphroditus what you have sent, a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well‑pleasing to God.  

PHI 4:19 And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

For there is no food and no water, and we are disgusted with this miserable food.”







                                                                     Substitutionary Spiritual Death of Jesus Christ


       And there are only two categories of spiritual death.



/a.  Real spiritual death, which is separation from God in a state of sin.




This applies to all mankind in with the exception of TLJC.\




/b.  Substitutionary spiritual death, which is separation from God in a state of perfection and impeccability.




This applies only to Jesus Christ.\




        There are two categories of the unique death by our Lord on the cross.



/a. Category #1 - Our Lord's unique spiritual death as it was associated with our salvation.\


         /b. Category #2 - Our Lord's unique physical death associated with the finished work of our Lord and our resurrection.\

  [in place of, instead of, on behalf of, as a substitute]



The people in the world may say we are not helpless, but God sees it differently .


PS 14:2-3 The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of mankind

To see if there are any who understand,

Who seek God.

3 They have all turned aside, together they are corrupt;

There is no one who does good, not even one.




ECC 7:20 Indeed, there is not a righteous person on earth who always does good and does not ever sin.


ISA 64:6 For all of us have become like one who is unclean,

And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment;


ISA 6:1  From the sole of the foot even to the head

There is nothing healthy in it,

Only bruises, slashes, and raw wounds;

Not pressed out nor bandaged,

Nor softened with oil.


ROM 3:10-18 10 as it is written:

There is no righteous person, not even one;

11 There is no one who understands,

There is no one who seeks out God;

12 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt;

There is no one who does good,

There is not even one.”

13 “Their throat is an open grave,

With their tongues they keep deceiving,”

The venom of asps is under their lips”;

14 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness”;

15 Their feet are swift to shed blood,

16 Destruction and misery are in their paths,

17 And they have not known the way of peace.”

18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.”



ROM 3:23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

God is Holy and his holiness is made of his rightness and justice. 


we read HAB 1:13 Your eyes are too pure to look at evil,













JOHN 3:16  “For God so (A)loved the world, that He (B)gave His (C)only Son, so that everyone who (D)believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.


ROM 5:6 For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for  [in place of, instead of, on behalf of, as a substitute]  the ungodly.


2CO 5:15  and He died for all [huper plus the genitive of advantage of the word all which means [in place of, instead of, on behalf of, as a substitute for all],that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.


On our behalf” is huper plus the genitive of advantage translated “on our behalf” 2CO 5:21  He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 


Some scholars simply describe huper plus the genitive of advantage of the pronouns used in the sentence with words that denote concern or care for someone.


Used after expressions having to do with sacrifice, or used after expressions of dying for someone else.



You are a child of God – 1JO 3:1  See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are.

This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.


HEB 13:5  for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you,”


MAT 28:20  I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”


1CO 15:57  but thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.


2CO 2:14  But thanks be to God, who always leads us in His triumph in Christ,


We are His vineyard, a place where He produces fruit and as ISA 5:4 “What more was there to do for My vineyard that I have not done in it?


fruit   john 15  I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the words which I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in Me, and I in you.God created us for Salvation and so that we could bear fruit. In order to bear fruit, we need to tap into the Vine of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We need to take in the Word of God on a consistent basis, through our right Pastor-Teacher, in our right local assembly. And He gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, some as pastor and teacher  1 PETER 5:2-11 2 shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not with greed but with eagerness;3 nor yet as domineering over those assigned to your care, but by proving to be examples to the flock.4 And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. 5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God is opposed to the proud, but He gives grace to the humble.

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time,7 having cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares about you.8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary,the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.9 So resist him,firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brothers and sisters who are in the world.10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.

][ pastor and teacher EPH 4:11-16 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fullness of Christ. 14 As a result, 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 people, by craftiness is deceitful scheming; 15 but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, that is, Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love ]Once we take in the Word, we then must apply it to our everyday lives and use it in the Ministry which God has specifically chosen for us Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself but must remain in the vine,[  JOHN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

HEB 12:15 See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;


John 12:24-26 Truly, truly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. 25 The one who loves his life loses it, and the one who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life. 26 If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also; if anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.


EPH 4 :1 Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, 2 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, 3 being diligent to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.


COL 3:12-17 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so must you do also. 14 In addition to all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. 15 Let the peace of Christ, to which you were indeed called in one body, rule in your hearts; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. 17 Whatever you do in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
