The Christian Way of Living

Faith Rest Drill & God’s Divine Essence

“A pivot of mature believers
break no laws, sponsors no violence, including assassination, crime, terrorism, or revolution.  Confiscates no one's property.  And does not intrude on human privacy.

But turns the world upside down through the invisible force of Bible Doctrine, and the function of, the royal family honor code.”

Rom 12:2 [CMD] Stop being conformed to this world [the cosmic system], but [CMD] be transformed by the renovating of your mind [thinking – Rebound, F/R Drill, GO & DO …], [so] that you may prove what the will of God is [1 Tim 2:4], that which is [1] [divine] good and [2] acceptable [living the spiritual life - CWLiving] and [3] perfect [mature spiritual life] which is pleasing to God, the mature status quo [execution of the spiritual life - CWLiving]

1 Tim 2:4 who [JC] desires [wills]
[1] all men to be saved [unbeliever] and
[2] to come to the [epignosis] knowledge [through metabolized BD] of the truth [believer].

God’s will =
1) Salvation;
2) 2 Peter 3:18

"Strong's 1063 gár (a conjunction) – for.  While "for" is usually the best translation of 1063 (gár), its sense is shaped by the preceding statement – the "A" statement which precedes the 1063 (gár) statement in the "A-B" unit."


Heb 4:12 For [the solution to  disobedience: disbelieving, apathy & no F/R] ...
and continues with
Heb 4:12b ...  the word of God is [keeps on being] living [alive] and powerful [effectual - accomplishes its objective] and sharper than any two-edged sword, ...

1 Peter 5:7.  Give me all your concerns because I (God) care for you.

1 Peter 5:7.  Give me all your concerns because I (God) care for you.


Slamming all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you.

There are three primary things to know about God:

1 - absolute righteousness,
2 - God is also Just,          .
3 - God is Love.                

John 3:16 says, God soooo (my emphasis) loved the
world (you and me) that he gave us His uniquely born son, that whosoever
(me and you) believes in Him shall have everlasting life (aka we will go to

Proverbs 3:5 [1] [CMD] Trust in the Lord with all your
heart [rt lobe – where you think. PSD #3 F/R Drill],
And [2] [CMD] do not lean on your own [HVP]
understanding [man’s opinion vs God’s].

Proverbs 3:6 In all your ways [3] [CMD] acknowledge
[Promise] And He will make your paths straight.
[1, 2, 3 - easy]

Proverbs 3:7 [conclusion v5-6] Do not be wise in
your own eyes [conceited - arrogance];
[CMD] Fear [Trust] the Lord and [CMD] turn away
from evil.

Confused which way to go?

Then make the best decision you can and if God does not want you to go
in that direction, he will close the door.

If you are receptive to closed doors,
then you see that for what it is and you go in another direction.

Trust is a process


Trust is a process

Laminations 3:25 [Promise] The Lord is good to those who trust in Him [F/R
procedure] and to those who wait for Him [divine timing of God, having patience],

Matthew 7:11 [Promise] If you then [the context it is talking about
parents], being evil [compared to the character & integrity of God],
know how to give good gifts to your children,
how much more shall
your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!

Rebound when necessary
Diligently using (mastering) the F/R Drill

Understanding God’s Essence, esp His Love -> +R –J

Then using your volition to execute what God says – CMDs, Promises,  Instructions.

… and He will make your paths straight.

Very Key.  Simple.
