ROM 9:29  And just as Isaiah foretold or predicted, "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].

In relationship to our main passage in ROM 9:29  "Except the Lord of Sabaoth [armies] had left to us a posterity [pivot] We would have become as Sodom, and would have resembled Gomorrah."

We have The Doctrine of the Pivot Point 1. Definition.

Our our main definition is that basically the pivot is defined as the accumulation of mature or spiritually adult believers living in a client nation in a specific geographical location, [Now U.S.A.].

Point 2. is where we begin this evening; The Pivot and the Client Nation.

The Gentile client nation to God is not a Christian nation, but a national entity in which the civil government recognizes the principles of what is known as divine establishment.

Anarchy or lawlessness exists when segments of nations ignore these laws.

These laws directly affect freedom, civilization, authority, evangelism, spiritual growth, and perpetuation of the human race.

The laws of divine establishment define freedom in terms of privacy, property and authority.

Therefore, the Four Divine Institutions: #1 = Volition; #2 = Marriage; #3 = Family; #4 = Nationalism.

This is not like the Mosaic Law which was given to Israel as a nation under the authority of God.

There is no such thing as a Christian nation, which would mean that every person in the nation must be a Christian.
a. A Client nation is simply a national entity in which the civil government recognizes divine establishment principles of freedom, including privacy and the sacredness of property and life.

The client nation to God contains a pivot of mature believers, who are either visible spiritual champions or invisible heroes who provide the prosperity of that nation through the principle of blessing by association.

Spiritual champions are known basically because the fruit of their ministry and they are visible champions who are apparent by sight whereas invisible heroes are not necessarily known in the visible realm.

They are what the Bible teaches "seen yet unseen." Seen by the Elect and Fallen angels. Unseen by most of humanity.

1CO 4:5  Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts; and then each man's praise will come to him from God.

PRO 16:2  All the ways of a man are clean in his own sight, But the Lord weighs the motives.

HEB 11:1  Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction or the evidence of things not seen.

The point is that in the spiritual life,  invisibility is greater than visibility. That which is unseen is greater than that which is seen.

2CO 5:7 "We walk by means of faith not sight."
Invisible heroes are what make the pivot strong not just the visible ones.

Sometimes the true witnesses and the true visible heroes do not look like or appear to be heroes at our Lord and the events surrounding the cross.

Invisible heroes don't seem like heroes to the natural-minded individual, 1CO 2:14.

The point is that many times visible heroes of the faith do not look like heroes at all by sight just like invisible heroes of the faith do not look like heroes at all by sight either.

It's also interesting that when TLJC walked the face of this earth with his visible followers, the other 11 apostles, that they all had to learn from the one who had not followed TLJC visible but followed Him when he was invisible on the earth.

The eleven visible followers of Christ had to learn the mystery doctrine of the Church-age from the one who followed TLJC as an invisible follower.

The invisible follower of our Lord's ministry ended up teaching the mystery doctrine of the Church-age to the visible followers of our Lord

Jesus Christ as well as writing half of the New Testament.

2PE 3:16 = Paul teaches things that are hard for many to understand ---though after a while through the teaching ministry of God the

Holy Spirit many would learn the mystery doctrines of the Church-age.

The parchments that he desired were probably those writings of Jewish history, exegetical and explanatory precious papers, above all, that Paul wanted with him in his last days.

2CO 4:18  while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

HEB 11:1 "Now faith [pistis = doctrine] is the assurance or the conviction of things that we hope for."

The prosperity and blessing in a client nation does not occur through activism, but through those believers who execute the PREDESIGNED PLAN OF GOD.

If the pivot declines, then the client nation declines and is eventually destroyed through the administration of the five cycles of discipline of Lev 26.

Although this may not be of interest to some believer, you must understand that Every Word of God is important and pure as PRO 30:5 states.

ROM 15:4  For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

1CO 10:6  Now these things happened as examples for us, that we should not crave evil things, as they also craved.

2TI 3:16-17,  All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;  that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

a. The first cycle of discipline, LEV 26:14-17.

b. The second cycle of discipline, LEV 26:18-20.

c.  The third cycle of discipline, LEV 26:21-22.

d. The fourth cycle of discipline, LEV 26:23-26.

e.  The fifth cycle of discipline, LEV 26:27-38, amplified in DEU 28:49-67.

The cycles of discipline are based on the principle that Jesus Christ controls history directly, indirectly, and permissively.

He controls history directly through the function of his own divine essence.

He controls history indirectly through the function of the laws of divine establishment.
