Knowing how to glorify God or how believers resist the will of God, Part 3.

Thursday, September 24, 2009

The believers resistance of the will of God = knowing how to glorify God or knowing the glorification of God.

Point 1. How the Believer Glorifies God.

Point 2. What Does Not Glorify God.

Left out of our first principle is all your Christian service, sacrifice, and works.
All this is wood, hay, and straw and it will all be burned at the Judgment Seat of Christ, 1CO 3:11-15; 2CO 5:10.

Point 3. The Pattern for Glorifying God in the Church-age.

a.  Reception of Bible doctrine is the #1 priority.

“are being transformed” pres-pass-ind
metamorphoo
to transform or to change.

The present tense is a descriptive present which describes what takes place when the believer looks into the mirror of the word of God.

The passive voice, the believer receives the action of the verb, he is “being transformed”

The indicative mood is the reality of being changed by God the Holy Spirit as we behold the glory of the Lord.

ROM 12:2, And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind,

The believer must make a decision not to forsake Bible class,
HEB 10:25, Do not forsake your own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but gathering together for the purpose of encouraging one another.

EPH 3:18-19, that you may be able to comprehend in the presence of all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fulness of God.

a.  Reception of Bible doctrine is the #1 priority.

However, reception of Bible doctrine is not enough, there must also be the filling of the Holy spirit (EPH 5:18).

b. The ability to enter into Retention, which refers to the metabolization of Bible doctrine, so that epignosis doctrine in the right lobe is the basis of momentum in the PPOG.

Once the human spirit is taught, the believer automatically understands it as “knowledge” or gnosis.
