At the moment of salvation, God delivered us from the bondage and citizenship in the cosmic system.
We were sealed by the Holy Spirit; EPH 1:13-14.Regenerated and given human spirit, TIT 3:5.Justification, GAL 2:16.Reconciliation,
2CO 5:19.Propitiation, 1JO 2:2.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also meant we were baptized by the Holy Spirit. At salvation, God the Holy Spirit takes the new believer and enters him into union with Christ, 1CO 12:13, GAL 3:26-28.
1CO 12:13 “By means of one Spirit, we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and were all made to drink into one Spirit.”
at the moment of salvation we are created a New Spiritual Species, 2CO 5:17, GAL 6:15.
a. The new racial species of the Jew began when Abraham was circumcised at age 99.
b. The Church Age believer, at the moment of faith in Christ, becomes a new spiritual species.
We were also entered into a new family–the royal family of God, EPH 1:5-6, 1PE 2:9.
Our Lord’s third royal title is “King of kings, Lord of lords, the Bright Morning Star.”
Royalty should conduct itself in a certain way, i.e., according to the protocol plan of God.
What is the difference between the protocol plan of God and the pre-designed plan of God (PPOG).
The protocol plan of God refers to the function of the plan of God, as the right thing being done in the right way, whereas the PPOG refers to the point of time when the plan of God was designed which was in eternity past.
EPH 1:5 “By means of virtue-love, He has predestined us for the purpose of adoption to Himself through Jesus Christ on the basis of the grace purpose of His will.”
In the Roman custom, adoption was the means by which a Roman aristocrat would select someone, often someone other than his own son, to become his heir.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also meant entrance into Equal Privilege and Opportunity Under Our Invisible Assets of the divine decrees which are election and predestination, GAL 3:26-26.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also meant positional Sanctification. Sanctification means set apart unto God.
a. Positional sanctification is union with the person of Jesus Christ at the moment of salvation.
b. Experiential sanctification refers to the spiritual life after salvation.
c. Ultimate sanctification refers to when we receive our resurrection bodies at the Rapture.
Positional sanctification makes every believer in union with Christ positionally higher than angels, Heb 1-2.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also means we are predestinated, EPH 1:5. We share the destiny of Christ.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also meant the Universal Priesthood of the Believer, 1PE 2:5,9; REV 1:6; REV 5:10; REV 20:6.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also meant Royal Ambassadorship. Every believers is the representative of the Lord Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world, 2CO 5:20.
2CO 5:20 “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ as though God were making His appeal through us. Therefore, we invite you [unbelievers] on behave of Christ become reconciled to God.”
Being delivered out of the cosmic system also meant The Indwelling of God the Father. God the Father indwelling the body of every believer, JOH 14:23; EPH 4:6; 2Jo 9.
It also meant The Indwelling of God the Son, JOH 14:20; JOH 17:22:23; 2CO 13:5; GAL 2:20.
The Indwelling of God the Holy Spirit, ROM 8:11; 1CO 3:16; 1CO 6:19:20; 2CO 6:16.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also meant The Unique Availability of Divine Power, EPH 6:10, ACT 1:8.
When we were delivered from the cosmic system it also was the first time we were Filled with God the Holy Spirit.
We were also given a spiritual gift. Delivered from the Great White Throne Judgment.Delivered from the power and influence of the sin nature.Related to the Son by biblical analogy.
a. The last Adam (Jesus Christ) and the new creation (the royal family), 1CO 14:45.
b. The head and the body, COL 1:18.
c. The great shepherd and the sheep, HEB 13:20.
d. The true vine and the branches, JOH 15:1-7.
e. The chief cornerstone and the stones in the building, EPH 2:20.
f. The High Priest and the royal priesthood, HEB 9:11, 1PE 2:5.
g. The groom and the bride, REV 19:7.
Being delivered from the cosmic system also meant we are the beneficiaries of everything we need to solve every problem in life and make every decision in life.
Even in the Garden of Eden, his name nahash, translated “serpent,” means `the shining one.’
His cosmic system is filled with human good, self-improvement and making the world a better place to live.
It’s also interesting that in verse 13, these precious stones mentioned are displayed three times as recorded in the Bible.
(a) In the high priest’s breastplate as a manifestation of divine grace.
The breastplate was filled with 12 stones representing each tribe of Israel.
(b) Secondly, in the New Jerusalem, which reflects the glory of God, these are the stones that we are told are there.
These stones that Satan possessed were also manifested in the eternal state.
(c) The third time the stones are mentioned is in our passage as the covering of this great angel, which signalizes the highest of all creation.
The jewel for the tribe of Issachar is missing because it represented the sin and burden bearer which Satan is not.
The jewel for the tribe of Gad is missing because it represented victory and Jesus is the victor who was crucified.
The jewel for tribe of Asher is missing because it represented the royal seed, and Jesus, not Satan is the royal seed, the Royal King forever. The workmanship of your settings and sockets refers to the fact that he did not need an instrument to praise and glorify God, he was given a built-in Royal crown of praise to praise to his Creator.
He did not need an instrument of praise to glorify his Creator; he was an instrument of praise.
Also, we read in PSA 148:2-5, “Praise Him, all His angels; Praise Him, all His hosts! Let them praise the name of the Lord, For He commanded and they were created.”
He is said to have been the Anointed Cherub that covers by God’s appointment.
The word anointed means the Messiah’s angel as we would say in our dayand age, the Messiah’s right hand man.
He is also said to have been upon the Holy Mountain of God and to have walked up and down in the midst of the Stones of Fire.
1. EZE 28:12, the Bible teaches no man is perfect and yet we read the phrase “You had the seal of perfection,
2. In verse 12, it says that the one who the Lord is talking to was Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty, and that’s a problem.
3. The king of Tyre was never in Eden, the garden of God as EZE 28:13 “You were in Eden, the garden of God;
4. The king of Tyre was never an anointed cherub who covers,
5. He never walked in the midst of the stones of fire, only an angel could do that.
6. In EZE 28:15, it could be said to the king Tyre, “You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created,
The point is that we are definitely talking about an angel, namely, Satan, the devil, or Lucifer, who has developed those two cosmic systems.
The holy mountain of God is the place of His presence in visible glory, where our Lord’s High Priest would stand before Him to minister to Him, EXO 4:27, PSA 2:6.
Satan’s presence on the holy mountain would indicate his enjoyment of the full Cherubic privilege of nearness to the throne of God.
The cherubim were the group of angels related to the throne of God as protectors and defenders of His holiness.
Do not be surprised when you run into someone who is suppose to protect and defend the authority over them but instead attacks it and discredits it, it started with their father the devil…..not literally in many cases, but experiential.
The phrase the abundance of your trade refers to his genius plans.
Perhaps he promised them what a lot of conspirators promise their victims, promotion.
Rekullah – also translated slander, it means to go about in order to traffic something against someone, or to slander, or to try and destroy someone’s reputation by trafficking gossip and slander.
One of the reasons is simply because he wants us to see the devastating affects of arrogance and pride.
PRO 8:13 “Respect for the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way, And the perverted mouth, I hate.”
ISA 13:11 Thus I will punish the world for its evil, And the wicked for their iniquity; I will also put an end to the arrogance of the proud,
