Wednesday, April 6, 2016The doctrine of imputations and the Judgment Seat of Christ and then on Friday evening we noted the five categories of crowns for believers in the word of God as they relate to the doctrine of imputations.

REV 3:11, "Hang on to what you have, so that no one takes away your crown."

2JO 1:8  Watch yourselves, that you might not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward.

This lead us to the ultimate decoration that will be imputed to us when we receive our resurrection body:  The order of the morning star.

This decoration is taken from and named after our Lord's third royal title, "King of kings, Lord of lords, the bright morning star," mentioned specifically in REV 22:16 and 2PE 1:19.

a. The Son of God = deity. b. The Son of David = humanity. c. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords = Faithful witness in the angelic conflict.
The ultimate victory of the bright morning star over Lucifer, the son of the dawn.

Chivalry is taken from the medieval knightly system honoring the  spiritual, moral, and social code of aristocracy, especially referring to having courage, honor, integrity, courtesy,  justice, and a readiness to help the weak.
MAT 25:21 "Well done, good and faithful slave; you were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things, enter into the joy of your master."

JAM 2:23 and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness," and he was called the friend of God.

The new order of chivalry in the eternal state is a decoration which is awarded for the maintenance of spiritual adulthood in what may be called an ultra-supergrace status.

This can also be entitled the new order of knighthood which will be added to the believer's name in the Lamb's book of life forever, REV 2:17 cf COL 3:1-4.

COL 3:1-2,  If then you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.

COL 3:3-4,  For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, is revealed, then you also will be revealed with Him in glory.

In Revelation chapters 2 and 3, there are seven different churches mentioned and there are two different interpretations of the seven churches mentioned.

Some teach that the seven churches portray seven historical stages the church would go through.

Others teach that it refers to the seven different types of churches or individual believers that live in every generation.

The seven churches portray seven different types of churches or individual believers that live in every generation.

In REV 2:2-3, as a church or individual believers those at Ephesus had good deeds, produced divine good works and persevered and had not grown weary.

You will receive a privilege imputed to you in your resurrection body of being a member of a the Paradise Club with special parties to which you and other winner believers are invited to; you're a member of the paradise club forever, REV 2:7,14.

REV 2:7  "To the winner, I will give to him the privilege of eating from the tree of life which is in the paradise of God."

The Greek word for Paradeisos refers to a place where you had a great time.

Every tree being desirable to the sight; second category: and those good for food; third category: and the tree of life in the middle of the garden; category four: and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Category one is a category designed for the prosperity of the soul. All happiness in mankind must relate to man’s soul and if doctrine is resident in your soul then you have happiness.

Category two trees, mentioned in Genesis 2:9 — “and those good for food.” Fun and happiness has always been associated with eating, and the reason for that is that God designed the taste buds.

Category three tree is the tree of life. The tree of life was both the capacity for happiness plus blessing — total appreciation of God’s grace.

The church of Smyrna in REV 2:9 went through tremendous tribulation and poverty.

Your family, friends, and loved ones will be with you and you will not be hurt by the final death when people are thrown into the lake of fire forever.

The church or individual believers in Pergamum in REV 2:14 were warned about the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel and committed acts of immorality.

When Israel was in the wilderness, God supernaturally provided manna for their food. Manna was something like white coriander seed and tasted like wafers made of honey; (EXO 16:31).

The manna was provided for a period of forty years until Israel crossed the Jordan River and it provided life in a desert and was even called “angel’s food” (PSA 78:23-25).

PSA 78:23 Yet [even though they rebelled against God and blamed their teacher of doctrine, Moses] He [the Lord] commanded the clouds above, And opened the doors of heaven;

PSA 78:24-25,  And He rained down manna upon them to eat, And gave them food from heaven. Man did eat the bread of angels; He sent them food in abundance.

PHI 4:19  And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

This heavenly manna called the hidden manna is the advance doctrines that the mature believer will be learning in heaven while the majority will be learning the basics.

HEB 11:32   And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets,

We will never stop learning doctrine in heaven and that there be a continual amount of teaching on a day by day basis as it were, Joh
1:12, we keep on receiving more and more of who Christ is.

In the resurrection body, God's final vote for the winner believer will be a white stone of approval.
and on that white stone has been inscribed a new Title  - the title is your royal title in the eternal heraldry] which no one knows [you are an anonymous hero during the Church-age and this is an intimate name the lord has for you which is between you and Him]."

The white stone meant that the Lord acknowledges you as a winner believer before His father and before the angels as well as every believer in TLJC.

The new name meant that you were a special person, anonymous in time but not in the eternal state.

To have a name on that stone is the highest possible decoration for historical impact outside the order of the morning star.

REV 2:26,28, "furthermore, the winner, even he who keeps my assignments [execution of the PPOG] until the end [perpetuation of spiritual maturity through evidence testing], to him I will give authority over the nations."

The winner believer will be a ruler over a Gentile nation and rule during the Millennium.

REV 22:16  "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to declare these things to you for the churches; I am the root [Jesus Christ as eternal God], and the descendent of David [Jesus Christ in hypostatic union], the bright morning star [His title for the first and second advents]."

In NUM 24:17, His title is related to his strategic victory, "I see him, but not now, I behold him, but not near. behold, a star [Christ as the morning star] shall come forth from Jacob [first advent] and a scepter shall rise from Israel [second advent]."

MAT 2:2 is a reference to the morning star related to the first advent, MAT 2:2 "where is He who has been born king of the Jews? For we saw His star in the east, and have come to worship Him."

Bible doctrine is related to Christ as the morning star in 2PE 1:19‑21, "and the morning star has come up" (second advent).

The order of the morning star is named after our Lord's royal title and is given for historical impact in the Church-age.

(1)  The uniform of honor, being invisible and worn in the soul, is exchanged at the judgment seat of Christ for the translucent uniform of glory worn over the resurrection body.
It was first modeled by Jesus Christ on the mount of transfiguration, MAT 17:2, "and His clothes became white as light."

The uniform of glory is given as a translucent light which covers the resurrection body, REV 3:4‑5, "they will walk with Me in whites..."

(2)  The name of the winner appears on the honors list, and he is presented in the court of heaven during the tribulation on earth, REV 3:5.

(3)  A new order of knighthood and eternal order of chivalry will be added to the believer's name in the Lamb's book of life forever, REV 2:17.

(4)  The winner will rule with Christ during the Millennium.

(5)  The winner's name is recorded in the permanent historical record section because of his invisible historical impact during the church age, REV 3:12a.

REV 3:12  "The winner, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God.  Furthermore, he will never again vanish [go outside] from history.

Also I will emblazon on him the title of My God, and the name of the city of My God"
the New Jerusalem, which shall descend from heaven from My God; also My new title [King of kings, Lord of lords, bright morning star]."

(6)  The winner receives his own coat of arms of glory, REV 3:12b.

(7)  The winner has special privileges related to the tree of life, the gazebo of the garden, called the paradise of God.

REV 22:14  "Blessed are they [winners] who have washed their robes [rebound], that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter by the gates into the city [New Jerusalem]."
