Sunday, September 20, 2009
1. Knowing the angelic conflict.
2. Knowing the glorification of God.
3. Knowing no man after the flesh.
5. Bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
Self-justification - operation blame game as to why you are not committed and devoted to living the spiritual life, submitting to whomever is your right pastor-teacher, and serving others.
JAM 1:22, But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who deceive themselves.
living for yourself - a direct contradiction and rejection of
2CO 5:15, and He died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.
ROM 9:19, You will say to me then, “Why does He still find fault? For who resists His will?”
That is knowing how to glorify God or knowing the glorification of God.
a. How the Believer Glorifies God.
The glorification of God by means of the Church (in EPH 3:21) occurs when the believer attains spiritual adulthood and moves on to spiritual maturity.
God can do far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams.
Knowing how to glorify God or knowing the glorification of God is to take place in the church.
Glory to God also comes through knowing and living for the Messiah, TLJC.
Glory to God is to come down through all the generations through knowing how to glorify God or knowing the glorification of God.
EPH 3:21 the phrase
to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus =
God is to be glorified “in the Church” just like He was glorified by means of TLJC.
This was said to a church that in REV 2:4 had left their first love.
When it came to presenting the Message to the Gentiles, to people who had no background in God’s way, Paul was the least qualified of any of the available Christians.
PHI 3:3-5, for we [supergrace-believers] keep on being the true circumcision, who keep on worshipping in the Spirit of God and glory or boast in Christ Jesus and we put no confidence in the flesh. even though I myself might be having confidence even in the flesh. If anyone of the same category [the Judaizers] assumes to put confidence in the flesh, I far more: circumcised the eighth day, [born] out from the race of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews [an outstanding Hebrew]; with reference to the Law, a Pharisee;
PHI 3:6-8, with reference to zeal, constantly persecuting the church; with reference to the self-righteousness which is in the Law, having become blameless. But whatever quality of things were gains to me, those things [gains] I have concluded as an expert as loss for the sake of Christ. Not only this but more than this, I conclude as an expert all things [Paul’s pre-salvation human celebrity ship and achievement] to be loss [singular] because of the surpassing greatness of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord,
PHI 3:8, Not only this but more than this, I conclude as an expert all things to be loss because of the surpassing greatness of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord,
for whom I have forfeited all things, also, I keep on concluding as an expert them to be piles of dung in order that I may win for Christ,
ROM 11:13, But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles,
Prin - God saw to it that Paul was equipped for the ministry and you can be sure that it had nothing to do with his natural abilities as a Jewish Pharisee.
I am, preaching and writing about things that are way over my head, the inexhaustible riches and generosity of Christ.
1CO 1:26-7....that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong,
JER 9:23, Thus says the Lord, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice, and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the Lord.
That his job or calling was to bring out in the open and make plain what God, who created all this in the first place, has been doing in secret and behind the scenes all along.
When we trust in him, we’re free to say whatever needs to be said, bold to go wherever we need to go.
“Don’t let my present trouble on your behalf get you down.”
Knowing how to glorify God or knowing the doctrine of glorification of God will cause you to reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Rise to the heights! Dig out and experience the depths!
