The Doctrine of the Faithfulness of God.

Point 1. Definition.

Divine faithfulness is God’s grace expression to the believer using His perfect character as the basis for expression.

Propitiation is the work of Christ on the cross which deals with the integrity of God.

Point 2. God Is Faithful to Us in Rebound and Recovery.

Point 3. God’s Faithfulness is Manifest in His Perfect Plan.

Point 4. God’s Faithfulness is Manifest in Logistical Grace Provision and Supergrace Blessing,
1TH 5:24.

Point 5. God’s Faithfulness in Testing, 1CO 10:13, 2CO 4:17, ROM 8:18.

ROM 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Logistical grace = divine planning, divine support, divine provision, and divine blessing for the execution of the predesigned plan of God by the Royal Family for the fulfillment of God’s will, God’s purpose, and God’s plan for your life.

We are also tested regarding our love of doctrine versus social life, loved ones, our failures, other distractions, and our families.

Even in spiritual maturity, we face testing, as did Abraham when he was commanded to offer his only son, Isaac, as a sacrifice.

As a part of God’s faithfulness, He always provides the doctrine or the opportunity to get the doctrine necessary to pass each test before it comes.

Point 6. God is faithful to the Royal Family of God, HEB 10:23.

Point 7. God is faithful to the Apostate Believer, 2TI 2:13.

God is faithful in keeping the degenerate believer alive for discipline.

Point 8. God is Faithful to the Believer in the Realm of the Angelic Conflict.

Point 9. God’s Faithfulness Becomes a Reality as You Advance to and Reach Spiritual Maturity.

Point 10. Conclusion.

MAL 3:6 "For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed."

LAM 3:22 The Lord’s lovingkindnesses indeed never cease, For His compassions never fail.

It is one thing to accept the faithfulness of God as truth; it is another thing to act upon it.

2CO 1:20 For as many as may be the promises of God, in Him they are yes;

NUM 23:19 God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

In Titus 1:2, it is impossible for Him to lie.

In HEB 10:23, He who promised is faithful.

In 1PE 4:19, to those who were going through some measure of suffering, Peter says to "entrust your soul to the faithful Creator who will do what is right!"

He is faithful in what He withholds just like in what He gives.

He is faithful in sending sorrow as well as in giving joy.

HOS 5:15 I will go away {and} return to My place Until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.
