Wednesday, November 17, 2010

2PE 3:9 The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for all 6,882,161,929 people alive today to perish but for all to come to repentance.

Point 11.
The Importance of Divine Timing Pertaining to the Open Doors from God.

Divine Timing refers to the best time to go through the open doors that God provides.

The believer responds to the doors that God reveals that are opened before them in order to achieve God’s will & God’s purpose with the maximum results.

Timing is a matter of ADJUSTING TO and SYNCHRONIZING WITH the PPOG & going forward to fulfill your personal sense of destiny.

God has called you in a very special way with a very special plan designed for you to fulfill personally,
so that you may share in the strategic victory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1CO 12:18 But now God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as He desired.

ROM 8:30 Whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

We have to make the adjustments in our lives that are necessary in order to get under the timing of God & to discover the open doors that God provides according to His will.

When God calls us to do something, we have to make some adjustments in our own lives.

HEB 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed by going out to a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and he went out, not knowing where he was going.

You must come to a point in your spiritual life where you have total & complete confidence in the divine timing of God & the open doors He provides for you to will to go to & go through.

The spiritual life is unique & was pioneered by the Lord Jesus Christ.
He passed it on & revealed it in detail to every believer in the Church-Age for them to imitate.

ROM 11:13 "But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry."

1CO 4:16 I exhort you therefore, be imitators of me.

1CO 11:1 Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ.

EPH 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children;

1TH 1:6 You also became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit,

HEB 13:7 Remember those who led you, who spoke the word of God to you; and considering the result of their conduct, imitate their faith.

3JO 1:11a Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good.

PHI 3:17 Brethren, join in following my example, and observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us.

Instead of making that adjustment, they back off, they miss the will of God for their life & go through life wondering
“What is wrong?”

Divine Timing as it relates to the Open Doors that God provides depends upon whether or not you are willing to ADJUST TO the PPOG & go forward to fulfill your personal sense of destiny.

LUK 9:23 And He was saying to {them} all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”

LUK 14:26 “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate [miseo - love less] his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.”

"If you’re not willing to take what is dearest to you, whether plans or people, and kiss it good-bye, you cannot be My disciple."
