ROM 9:29 And just as Isaiah foretold, "Except the Lord of Sabaoth [not the Sabbath but the Lord of the armies or literally the Lord of the military or of the Christian soldiers].

Sabaoth means the Lord of the armies or literally the Lord of the military or of the Christian soldiers.
Posterity - sperma = those bels who live in the nature of God or the sperm of God referring to His seed and therefore a reference to those who live as new creatures who have been born again and therefore those who are a part of the pivot.

1PE 1:23, for you have been born again not of seed [sperma] which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and abiding word of God.

2PE 1:4, For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature,

1JO 3:9, No one who is born of God practices sin, because His seed [God's sperma] abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

God's sperm characterizes the pivotal believer's actions.
every generation, the Lord always provides doctrinal teachers with doctrinal believers who become a part of the pivot that stops Satan from taking complete control of the earth.

We would all become like Sodom and Gomorrah, not necessarily like their lifestyle but like their destruction.

The Doctrine of the Pivot Point 1. Definition.

a.  The pivot is defined as the accumulation of mature or spiritually adult believers living in a client nation in a specific geographical location, MAT 5:13-14.

b.  While a pivot is composed primarily of mature believers, it also includes those new positive believers whose momentum has carried them into any legitimate stage of spiritual adulthood.

1PE 2:2, as newborn babes, they long and desire for the pure milk of the word, so that by it they you may grow in respect to their salvation,

A little knowledge with arrogance puffs them up says 1CO 8:1. As the writer of the book of Hebrews says HEB 5:12c they have come to need milk and not solid food.

HEB 5:14, Solid food is for the mature, who because of practice, practice, practice,  have their senses trained to discern between divine good and that good which is evil.

c. The pivot also includes believers who have fulfilled the principle of "virtue first”  as their first priority in the plan of God.

The command for the Christian way of life is virtue first. Not witnessing, serving, praying, doing great things for God......but virtue first.

1. At the time that the apostle Paul wrote this to the Romans, virtue always meant devotion and loyalty to your family.

They are pre-occupied with themselves - i.e. subjectivity.

The Romans also knew that no one could be virtuous unless they accepted authority (beginning with the authority of their parents).

2. Virtue also meant reverence and devotion to the authorities over the Romans at that time.

This included respect and loyalty toward God which was revealed by exact performance of all that God required.

3. Virtue meant justice or faith - to them faith meant to be true to one's word.

By virtue they meant what we would call faithfulness or the ability to fulfill one's obligations and keeping one's word.

4. Virtue through absolute self-control.

5. Virtue meant consistency or perseverance.

It seems like the only thing that is really consistent in this world today is inconsistency.

d. When it comes to the pivot, the pivot is made up of believers who have virtue which is the visible manifestation of the invisible, i.e., metabolized doctrine and the power of the Holy Spirit controlling the soul.

e. Virtue is the quality of intrinsic good; it is not proving one's worth or who you really are - inwardly - meaning you are not a phony, which so many are - and why they hate the truth that exposes them, GAL 4:16.

Prin - Proving one's worth is arrogance; improving one's worth spiritually is wisdom.
Believers who reside and function in the PREDESIGNED PLAN OF GOD produce virtue, while believers who reside and function in the cosmic system destroy virtue and produce pseudo‑virtue.

It is virtue manufactured inside the PREDESIGNED PLAN OF GOD that is the source of all true happiness in life.
Pseudo‑virtue manufactured in the cosmic system is the basis of all hypocrisy in life.

Some of you need to remember a few very vital principles like 1CO 15:10; ROM 8:31; ZEC 2:8; (Touches - Apple), MAL 3:17 (His Jewels)

They are jewels for their sparkling quality.

Their spirituality shines and sparkles in God’s eyes! They “shine like stars in the universe.” (PHI 2:15).

Like precious jewels, the godly are also jewels because of their scarcity.

MAT 7:13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

The godly are also jewels because of their price.

God values the saints so highly that He parted with His best jewel to obtain them — our Lord Jesus Christ whose precious blood purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.” (REV 5:9).

Christians are also jewels because of their beauty.

Christians are jewels which adorn the world. Hypocrites dishonor true Christianity and give it a bad name but living a godly life honors the gospel. “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” (MAT 5:16).

From lumps of dirt and sin — He has made you into His jewels, 2CO 5:20.

The pivot may include all believers who have fulfilled the principle of "virtue first” as their first priority in the plan of God.

In the dispensation of the church, the Christian service that is most important is done where people cannot see it.

Believers in the pivot stand out in contrast to believers living in the cosmic system, whose arrogance from motivational arrogance results in self-righteous, crusader arrogance.

These bels are apostate, recognized by their own clichés', their hypocritical sweet personalities, their self-righteousness, their crusader arrogance, their distortion of doctrine and disorientation to reality, and they are potential revolutionists.

You can also recognize the shrinking of the pivot by the social action and civil disobedience advocated and practiced by believers.

Christianity must never be the state, though religion always tries to be the state, (e.g., Arab countries like Iran and Syria).

MAT 19:26 And looking upon them Jesus said to them, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

The battle between Ishmael and Isaac still goes on today in the analogy between the Arabs and the Jews.
Christianity is not produced by influencing with Christian principles, but by growing in grace and establishing a pivot that has invisible historical impact.

On October 27, 1553 John Calvin, the founder of Calvinism, had Michael Servetus, the Spanish physician, burned at the stake just outside of Geneva for his doctrinal beliefs!

"If he [Servetus] comes [to Geneva], I shall never let him go out alive if my authority has weight."

"I hope that the verdict will call for the death penalty."

He had a prolonged, murderous hate in his heart and was willing to violate Scripture to put another to death and in a cruel way.

He was seized the day after his arrival, condemned as a heretic when he refused to repent, he was burned in 1553 with the approval of John Calvin.

That's when "Calvin had him [Servetus] arrested as a heretic. Convicted and burned to death."
From the time that John Calvin had him arrested on August 14th until his condemnation, Michael Servetus spent his remaining days in an atrocious dungeon with no light or heat, little food, and no sanitary facilities."

"Jesus, Son of the eternal God, have mercy on me," the tormented man cried from the midst of the flames.

As the Roman Catholics of 1415 burned John Hus at the stake over doctrine, John Calvin, likewise, had Michael Servetus burned at the stake.

1JO 3:15, Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.

ROM 14:4, Who are you to judge the servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls; and stand he will, for the Lord is able to make him stand.

MAT 7:1, "Do not judge lest you be judged."

1PE 4:8,  Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.

JOH 7:24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment [evaluation]."

ROM 2:1,  Therefore you are without excuse, every man of you who passes judgment, for in that you judge another, you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.
