We are still noting the principle of the Royal Family honor code as it relates to the doctrine of Election.
We are under surveillance by a super-natural system of demon investigators.
a. The defense system against the accusations and the judging of Satan. b. The truth that every believer must live his life as unto the Lord.
1. Some system of personality imitation2. Some system of asceticism3. Some system emotional activity4. Some system of program spirituality
Under the privacy of your priesthood, you must be able to define your life in terms of the PPOG, which means you must learn the technical language and vocabulary.
You can analyze and evaluate your own life and your own problems, and apply doctrine and make corrections to your own life under the privacy of your own priesthood.
The royal priest’s self-improvement is based on the function of perception of doctrine, not upon the advice and counsel of others.
Any self-improvement based on the advice and counsel of others is really a set‑back.
No believer can think, apply doctrine, or solve problems through the mind or the personality of another Christian.
To the extent that we seek counsel or advice, we’re not getting enough doctrine or we’re not using our own doctrine.
The only human dependence of the royal priesthood is the divine provision of your very own pastor teacher, and consistent positive volition under his teaching ministry.
The word elect is noun eklektos which refers to those elected to privilege.
We have been elected to be a member of the Church; The new creation; The Royal Family: The body of Christ: His sheep:
ISA 50:9 “Behold, the Lord God helps Me; Who is he who condemns Me?”
COL 2:18 Let no one keep defrauding you of your prize.
COL 2:16 Therefore let no one act as your judge in regard to food or drink.
GAL 5:7 You were running well; who hindered you from obeying doctrine?
REV 3:11 ‘I am coming quickly; hold fast what you have, in order that no one take your crown.
2JO 1:8 Watch yourselves, that you might not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward.
Point 11 in the doctrine of election deals with The Equal Opportunity under election, which is the Divine Provision of Logistical Grace
Support and Blessing.
Two aspects of logistical grace come to you from the justice of God to His indwelling righteousness in you.
We have logistical grace support which is designed to sustain you.
Logistical blessing is additional blessing, and more than just support.
Both logistical grace support and blessing is provided for winners and losers alike, because both types of believers have the perfect righteousness of God.
The righteousness of God demands that the justice of God keep you alive to fulfill your personal destiny and what you’ve been elected for.
The justice of God is the initiator of grace.
The justice of God sends to the indwelling righteousness of God everything it takes to keep us alive and to sustain us, as well as given us the opportunity to have great and fantastic blessings.
All logistical blessing in the Christian life comes in this manner to the winner and loser alike.
God blesses you only because you have His righteousness indwelling you; hence, His integrity is not compromised.
Our blessing is a matter of grace, just as our salvation was a matter of grace.
