Fall Of Man In The Bible. Theandric Action What Does It Mean? Why Do Christians Hastily Live A Lie?
Therefore, “Study (spoudazo = diligently to show ourselves approved unto God, workmen that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
- Theandric Action is simply the fullness of God’s divine nature overflowing in a human vessel which has surrendered to the plan of God.
- Theandric Action means that God is living in every believer who is becoming like God because of Theandric Action or God “being alive” in man.
- Theandric Action is related to God’s word or Bible doctrine changing all of us by the nature of God within us.
- Theandric Action then, is the treasure in earthen vessels; 2Co 4:7.
- The treasure is that the life of Jesus is the life that comes from Theandric Action or God’s nature alive in man.
- Theandric Action is operational in the believer’s life, through the filling of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
- What the Hypostatic Union was to our Lord, which was God being alive in Him, Theandric action is to all of us.
- Theandric Action is the only provision whereby Christians are able to manifest the true nature of God within the Body of Christ.
- Theandric Action does not mean losing our individuality or creative capacity, nor does it imply that our sin nature can ever be eradicated.
- Theandric Action will challenge you to experience the victory of Christ in every detail of our life.
ROM 2:4 Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?
And then here is the other verse we need to consider which is PSA 18:35 Thou hast also given me the shield of Thy salvation, And Thy right hand upholds me; And Thy gentleness makes me great.
And so, when we put the first two passages together, here is where we get the two main principles; “Rom 2:4….the kindness of God leads you to repentance? And Thy gentleness makes me great.
Theandric Action is the fullness of God’s divine nature in the mind and the heart of every human vessel which has surrendered to the PPOG [predesigned plan of God] to fulfill their PSD [their personal sense of destiny.
Most Christians never experience Theandric Action, because they ignorantly live in the lies and the effects of the Fall of man, expressing the character of the old adamic nature in the mentality, fulfilling selfish and vain pursuits.
When the life of God is operational and alive in the believer’s life, through the filling of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, which is the mind of Christ, the possibilities of experiencing Christ’s victory are limitless.
Because of Theandric Action or God’s divine nature alive in us.
Therefore, what the Hypostatic Union is to our Lord, Theandric action is to all of us.
In the Hypostatic Union, the Lord was not only God but He also has the nature of man within Himself but, and this is a big “but,” He did not use His own deity to serve and show worship toward the Father but instead He used the power of the Holy Spirit that indwelt Him as an example for us.
Theandric Action is the fullness OF God’s nature overflowing in the human vessel which is surrendered to the plan of God.
I dedicate this next statement to those believers who have the ability to present to you the devastating results of failing to live in Theandric Action, and sharing the eternal benefits of being established with God’s nature through the power of the Spirit and the Word of God.
Now, it must be emphasized that Theandric Action does not mean losing our individuality or creative capacity, nor does it imply that our sin nature can ever be eradicated.
We are not to force changes in our life but we are to realize what the apostle Paul said in 1Co 15:l0, “I labored more abundantly than them all [that is all the other apostles], yet not I, but the grace of God that was in me.”
Paul never lost his individuality, yet he operated in the power of God’s disposition or nature throughout his ministry.
Truth concerning the invisible God can only be imparted to natural men by those Christians who understand and live in the appropriation of the principle of Theandric Action.
As you continue to grow, you will see that, as the Christian faces every situation in life in the power of Theandric Action, the nature of God will be revealed to you and to the world.
And through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, all human problems and failures can be transformed into victories for the believer who, in courage and faith, applies this principle.
Remember, the Christian way of life is divided into two general categories: living and dying.
Dying is a part of life.
If you experience a period of time when you know you’re dying, then you have the opportunity of utilizing Theandric Action that God has given to us to use.
Now, if you advance to spiritual maturity, and if you become a spiritual champion and an invisible hero, then it can be said that you have enjoyed living.
And in dying, remember that God has saved the best until last.
Dying is a part of Christian experience which does not depend upon the volition of the believer, but on the sovereignty of God.
In the living phase of God’s plan, the believer has control over his life for successes or failure, for execution of God’s plan or failure to do so.
In the dying phase of God’s plan, the believer has no control over the time, place, or manner of his death.
The physical death of the Church-age believer is a matter of the wisdom, integrity, and sovereignty of God.
And because the integrity of God cannot be unfair or unjust, the time, place, and manner of our physical death is a perfect decision from Him.
And this means that anytime you become critical or upset, blaming God for the departure of a loved one, you’re in a state of blasphemy.
The point is that nothing will prolong your life beyond God’s time for you to die.
It simply means that God in His own wisdom has made the decision regarding the death of each one of us.
Prin-Since the omniscience of God knows all the facts in each individual case, the time, place, and manner of our physical death is a wise decision.
And all decisions from the sovereignty of God are made in perfect and eternal wisdom, including the time, place, and manner of dying.
