Doctrine of Enemyship, Part 18. The conclusion.

Friday, January 5, 2001

Even a reversionistic believer like Saul recognizes the authority of the one who communicated doctrine in his lifetime.

AMO 8:11Behold, days are coming, declares the Lord God, When I will send a famine on the land, Not a famine for bread or a thirst for water, But rather for hearing the words of the Lord.”

The absence of doctrine in Sauls life has caused him to be humbled and prostrate himself on the ground.

The fact that the reversionistic believer seeks help from doctrine after many years of rejecting doctrine.

It is possible for a believer to search for doctrine when its too late.

Those who reject doctrine are always ready to inconvenience others to wave the magic wand for them.

The reversionistic believer is hypersensitive but insensitive toward the feelings of others.

Those who reject doctrinal teaching usually expect the pastor to give them instant attention plus instant miracles.

The pastors job is to teach those that are positive and not to counsel.

Said – Qal imperfect of `amar Samuel actually said a lot more than what is recorded here to Saul.

The Hiphil stem of ragaz a very strong interrogative. It is like saying, “What in the world are you doing?”

Samuel has already taught Saul that he was going to lose the kingdom, 1SA 13:14; 15:28.

When the reversionistic believers discipline becomes intensified he becomes very selfish and very unpleasant to be around.

The reversionistic believer is also used by Satan to hinder the pastor from his academic responsibilities.

1JO 1:9 Metanoia, REV 3:19 EPH 4:23.

Exposure on a consistent basis to BD. The setting aside of the details of life. The intensification and concentration toward a crash diet of BD.

Departed Qal perfect of suwr to desert, to depart from, to turn aside, to avoid, to be removed, to reject.

The reversionistic believer lacks logic, reason, and common sense, the reversionistic believer does not and cannot think clearly.

Minus doctrine Saul is unprepared and the shock causes him to faint.
