The Life beyond dreams.

Thursday, January 29, 2009

1. The life beyond dreams is the function of the predesigned plan of God from day one of spiritual maturity to the point of physical death or the Rapture, whichever occurs first.

2. The life beyond dreams is defined as the modus operandi of the mature believer. He is both a winner and an invisible hero in the great power experiment of the Church Age.

3. The life beyond dreams is a continuation of his perception of Bible doctrine. It is a maximum use of the ten problem solving devices. It is receiving maximum blessing from the distribution of escrow blessings for time. It is maximum impact in human history.

The life beyond dreams is God’s fantastic grace provision which is far beyond your most fervent prayers.

The life beyond dreams is God’s fantastic grace provision which is far beyond things for which you have asked from others. The life beyond dreams is God’s fantastic grace provision which is far beyond your fondest, wildest, most impossible dreams.

The life beyond dreams is the direct result of fulfilling the life beyond gnosis. The life beyond gnosis is the means of executing God’s plan for your life. The life beyond dreams is the result of executing God’s plan for your life.

The life beyond gnosis is epignosis, the dynamics of metabolization, the application of Bible doctrine through consistent function of post-salvation renewal of your thinking.

1. You equate adversity with prosperity. You have the same happiness in one or the other. There is no change in your life based upon your circumstances.

2. You equate living with dying. Whether you are living or dying makes no difference, for you have exactly the same wonderful mental attitudes, happiness, and blessings.

First we have to sit and learn about all that God has done for us and allow those wonderful and eternal doctrines to give us rest.

Let the doctrines of the Cross replace the erroneous ideas that you had about who and what God is. Let grace replace legalism and any human abilities that we have used as pseudo-power in this life.

When you decide to begin walking with Christ that your cross, the one you are to carry daily, will be upon your shoulders. But don’t fear, that cross of yours will be carried if you will think with metabolized doctrine while you utilize the endless power of the filling of the HS.

LUK 14:27 Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.

Wisdom of the Person of God brings God’s love into the heart of the believer. True understanding is knowledge mixed with faith under the power of the Holy Spirit so that God’s wisdom becomes more precious than life itself.

Wisdom of God is being filled up with the fullness of Christ. Why? Because this was Christ’s very life and His body has been foreordained to have that same life.

1. In verse 19, it is described as being “filled up to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
2. In verse 20, beneficiaries are described as receiving “all they could ever ask or imagine.” This describes the spiritual adult on his way to becoming an invisible hero.
3. Verse 21 teaches that your execution of the plan of God for you results in the glorification of God in the Church Age.

a. In verse 19, there is great blessing beyond gnosis.
b. In verse 20, there is great power beyond gnosis.
c. In verse 21, there is great glory beyond gnosis.

LUK 14:25-27
Now great multitudes were going along with Him; and He turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple. “Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.”

When they are challenged to go beyond gnosis by getting into the boat and going over to the other side most of them will not go.

The scribe is an intellectual who has approbation lust. His problem is that his #1 priority is the approbation of people and his inability to go beyond being an intellectual to epignosis.

Rather than recognizing that the word of God is alive and powerful and that it must be inculcated and metabolized, gnosis believers seek to water down the word of God by trying to reconcile it with philosophical concepts.

In this illustration, getting on the ship and going to the other side represents the life beyond gnosis.

The greatest insecurity results from being security-conscious.

Marcus Aurelius said, “Our life is what our thoughts make it.”
PRO 23:7, “As a man thinks in his right lobe, so he is.”

To get the life beyond dreams we have to take the chance, even with the littlest mustard seed of faith, to follow the Lord wherever He takes us.

The storms didn’t wake our Lord, but the cries of His disciples did.
