The Fruit of the Spirit manifested by the Salvation Ministry of God the Holy Spirit at the moment of Salvation. Part 6.

Sunday, August 26, 2012

The seventh and final salvation ministry of God the HS = filling of the HS given at the moment of salvation for the purpose of producing the fruit of the Spirit as documented for us in GAL 5:22-23.

Under the principle of the doctrine of numerology, the number three Represents the Trinity, the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

The essence of God, the omniscience, the omnipresence, and the omnipotence of God.
As well as the period of time, Past, Present, and Future.

It’s also interesting that the Bible is written in sequence of 3, 66 books Gen to SOS, Isa to John, Acts to Rev. And so 3 is the number that represent completeness.

3rd day of the journey, Abraham was going to sacrifice Isaac
3 days of darkness in Egypt
3 days in the belly of the whale
3 days Paul is blind
3rd day of the marriage, Jesus turned water into wine
3rd day, He will raise us up (Hosea 6:2)
3rd day, He will rise from the dead.

And so the first three manifestations of the fruit of the Spirit is toward all mankind and is the ultimate expression of virtue. The second third manifestation of the fruit of the Spirit which are patience, kindness, goodness, the third one being goodness or graciousness which is integrity toward man.

There is faithfulness, gentleness, self-control or temperance, which the third one being self-control or temperance which is integrity in expression toward God. When accepted all together, the nine-fold fruit of the Spirit presents a spiritual portrait of Christ.

The nominative singular feminine noun chrestotes which means kindness, graciousness, generosity, and sensitivity to others. This word is employed by the apostle Paul exclusively in the New Testament where it appears ten times, the number of perfection or total completeness.

“Chrestotes” refers to being gracious and operating in grace orientation. This does not mean to forgive and compromise God’s holy standards but to forget what lies behind and reach forward to what lies ahead, PHI 3:13.

Teach is the bel’s recognition of all that God has freely given to us and is the basis of gratitude to God Who has given His unique Son for us and now freely gives us all things, ROM 8:32.

ROM 8:32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?

Grace-orientation is the bel’s awareness from metabolized doctrine that “a man can receive nothing except it be given him from heaven”, JOH 3:27. The believer never forgets where they came from and always is grateful and thankful to God for where they’re going.

EPH 2:12 “Remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.”

Many of God’s people forget the principles behind JOH 8:7 “He who is without sin among you, let him {be the} first to throw a stone at her.”

JAM 1:17, Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation, or shifting shadow.
MAT 7:1 “Do not judge lest you be judged.

“Do not pass judgment on a man who lives
And stumbles along the road
Unless you have worn the shoes he wears
Or struggled beneath his load.
There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt
Though hidden away from view,
And if the burden he bears was placed on your back
It might cause you to stumble too.

So don’t judge my friend don’t be so blind
Or the judgment will come back to you,
And you’ll find out the worse of all sin…
Is the judging that you do.
Don’t be to harsh to a man who sins
Or strike him with words or stones
Unless you are sure, yes doubly sure
You have no sins of your own.

For you know perhaps if the tempters voice
Should whisper as soft to you
As it did to him when he went astray
It would cause you to falter too.
So don’t judge my friend don’t be so blind
Or the judgment will come back to you,
And you’ll find out the worse of all sin…
Is the judging that you do.

COL 1:12 he said “Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.”

Grace-orientated believers also profoundly appreciate that there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus, ROM 8:1;1JO 3:20-21.

Toward the unsaved, grace oriented believers have the ministry of reconciliation, 2CO 5:18-21. All because of chrestotes which means kindness, graciousness, generosity, and sensitivity to others.

1SA 21:1-10, David willfully sinned and told a lie and the result of his lie was that an entire city was wiped out, (the city of Nob).

David knew the manifestations of the fruit of the Spirit especially chrestotes, the graciousness and generosity of the life of God to others.

You may tell a lie and some people got hurt but David told a lie AND A whole city was destroyed.

God’s grace, God’s love was more real to him than his guilt so instead he simply confessed his sin and kept moving.

Then David failed in responsibility in 2Sa 11-1. He should have led his troops in battle but he stayed home in Jerusalem and as a result, there was disaster on the battlefield.

There was also disaster on the home-front of Jerusalem itself.
Did he sit around and cry about it the rest of his life.
No, he simply got up and moved on.

While he was in Jerusalem 2SA 11:2-27, he ends up in certain “shocking” sins.
He committed adultery.
He got a man drunk.
He committed murder, and he lied again.
