The doctrine of Election, Part 6. Tapping into the eternal riches that God elected you to receive.

Sunday, July 11, 2004

“Be all the more diligent or more motivated” - from your perception of doctrine and the ability to recognize your invisible assets and what you have been elected to receive.

Making your calling and election a spiritual reality comes through the perception of doctrine resulting in the fulfillment of the PPOG.

“You will never stumble [become a loser in cosmic system].”

This is at the Judgment Seat of Christ when you are in the state of ultimate sanctification in the resurrection body.

“Will be abundantly supplied to you [conveyance of the escrow blessings to winners in the eternal state].”

The Doctrine of Election.

You have been elected to an entitlement of privilege to have God’s highest and best.

Point 1. Definition. Election is the expression of the sovereign will of God in eternity past before the universe existed and mankind lived on earth, to provide salvation and fantastic blessings to anyone whom the omniscience of God knew would respond to the Gospel.

Point 2. There are three elections in history.
a. Israel under the ritual plan of God.
b. Christ under the incarnation plan of God.
c. The Church under the pre-designed plan of God.

Point 3. The unique election of history: the Lord Jesus Christ.

Our election was to privilege and blessing, His election was to death and suffering, REV 13:8, ACT 2:22-23; 4:27-28.

Point 4. The Election of Israel.

Point 5. The Election of the Church.

You were designed for God’s pleasure, REV 4:11. You exist for His benefit, His glory, His purpose, and His delight (not yours).

Election is related to mankind in the sense that the character and nature of Christ is being manifested alive in you by means of virtue-love.

COL 3:12 And so, as those who have been elected of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion or the affections of grace-orientation, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;

COL 3:13 bearing with one another, and forgiving each other, whoever has a complaint against anyone; just as the Lord forgave you, so also should you.

Election means we are responsible to preserve the client nation by advancing and becoming invisible heroes,
MAT 5:13-14.

There is a means of tapping into the eternal riches that God elected you to receive.

Positive volition toward doctrine = rich in time, rich in eternity.
Negative volition toward doctrine = poor in time, poor in eternity.

True love, peace, contentment, inner happiness, confidence, security, courage, freedom, and abundant life.

ECC 5:10 He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance {with its} income. This too is vanity.

PRO 10:22 It is the blessing of the Lord that makes rich,

PRO 28:20 A faithful man will abound with blessings, But he who makes haste to be rich will not go unpunished.

PRO 30:7-9 Two things I asked of Thee, Keep deception and lies far from me, Give me neither poverty nor riches; Feed me with the food that is my portion, Lest I be rich and deny Thee and say, “Who is the Lord?”

PRO 11:28 He who trusts in his riches will fall.

Loving money and wealth can lead you to rest on unstable foundations, PRO 23:4-5, Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, Cease from your consideration of it. When you set your eyes on it, it is gone. For wealth certainly makes itself wings, Like an eagle that flies toward the heavens.

The love of money can make you proud -
PRO 28:11 The rich man is wise in his own eyes.

The love of money can even cause you to rob God, MAL 3:8-10.

ECC 5:11 When good things increase, those who consume them increase [the more you have, the more you spend]. So what is the advantage to their owners except to look on or look at it [the money, the wealth, the prosperity]?

ECC 5:11 The more you have, the more you spend, right up to the limits of your income. So what is the advantage of wealth - except perhaps to watch it as it runs through your fingers!

Epichoregeo - fut-pass-ind - “shall be supplied” = to furnish, to supply, to provide all that is needed to be a winner forever in the eternal state.

The blessings in the eternal state are the continuation of blessings in time.

2CO 6:10 We are as sorrowful yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing yet possessing all things.

a. There are going to be rich and poor believers forever and ever and ever in the eternal state.

b. In the temporal state, the believer is either a winner or a loser, either rich or poor.

c. The conveyance of the wealth that God has elected you to receive in time means that you will be rich forever in eternity.

d. Winners will be spiritually rich in time and spiritually rich in eternity.

e. God willed for you to be a winner and rich, however, you can reject that which God wills.
