Divine motivation for relationships in life.
Sunday September 1, 2001
[kai – also] [ta – the] [noemata – motivations] [humon – yours] [en Christo Iesou – in Christ Jesus]
The difference between the heart [kardia] and the mind [nous] the heart is the superior part of the soul.
2CO 2:11 – the motivations and evil devices, schemes, and plots of Satan by which he takes advantage of people.
1CO 3:13 “Each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work.”
GEN 6:5 “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
Our weapons are not based upon a system of human viewpoint like excuses and defense mechanisms.
Noeema = your mental perception or evil purposes or evil motivations.
There must be the search and destroy mission from your metabolized doctrine to eliminate human viewpoint from your life.
PHI 4:7 “In fact, that spiritual peace and prosperity from the source of the God, which surpasses or rises above and beyond all comprehension, shall garrison your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
shall garrison phroureo to supply.
Relationships between friends, fellow believers, members of the congregation, husbands and wives, or right man and right woman.
Marriage has always existed since the beginning of the human race and has its precedence from the garden of Eden.
There is a great mystery behind the marriage of believers in this dispensation only that very few Christians have any idea about.
ISA 54:5 “For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the Lord of hosts; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth.” JER 3:14 “Return, O faithless sons,” declares the Lord; For I am a husband to you,” (KJ)
The mystery goes back to the Garden of Eden, what the first Adam lost at the fall and what the last Adam restored, and how it relates to the angelic conflict.
The perfect environment that the first Adam lost, is now duplicated in the spiritual realm in the PPOG but will be consummated in the eternal state with perfect environment for all of eternity, REV 21:1-4.
The absolute righteousness that the first Adam lost is now imputed in the spiritual realm to the believer in the CA, and he will remain in a state of perfection in the eternal state forever and ever, REV 22:11.
The original design of marriage can now be experienced in the spiritual realm for two believers in the Church-age, analogous to the eternal marriage between TLJC and His bride, REV 21:9.
What the first Adam lost at the fall, the last Adam, TLJC, restored in the Christocentric dispensations, the rebuttal testimony of the prosecution in the historical trial of the angelic conflict.
