A look at the Problem Solving Devices the the LORD provides.

Will they follow the Word of God and fulfill the divine calling of God upon their life or will they be deceived by the god of this world  who perverted the Truth into lies because he is a liar;  JOH 8:44.

Even in this dispensation of the Hypostatic Union, or the time when our Lord walked the face of the earth, He was indwelt by all Three Members of the Trinity; EPH 4:6; GAL 2:20; 1CO 3:16.

EPH 4:6  There is one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.

GAL 2:20  “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me;

1CO 3:16   Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

The next couple of months left in the year 2019 of our Lord, is going to be a great time of reflection and gratitude for this past year, including prosperity and adversity.

EPH 5:20  always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;

1TH 5:18   in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

The new year 2020, will also be a time to reveal our love for the Word of God and our love for our Lord and Savior.

he meaning of 2020 when it comes to the Word of God symbolizes faith and trust in relationships of intimacy.

The reason I say “our book” is because there is absolutely no way I could ever write and study if it were not for Ya’ll. (Spiritually-Logistically)

Dan 12:4  Conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”?

HEB 11:6  And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

It was the order of the Ten problem devices which is built upon the very same principles that the prophet Isaiah talked about when he said line upon line, precept upon precept.

TIT 1:15  To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.


  1. Rebound & Recovery;
  2. Filling of the Spirit;
  3. The Faith-Rest Drill;
  4. Grace Orientation;
  5. Doctrinal Orientation.

In the first five verses, the emphasis is upon believers and their responsibility to learn about the Problem-Solving Devices and how they work and provide whatever is needed for every believer.

The first five problem solving devices deal with the believer as a priest representing himself to the Lord.

God begins by making sure that the believer understands that the first two problem solving devices, rebound and the filling of the Spirit, motivates us to fulfill the PPOG.

When you operate in PSD #1, Rebound; at the same time you have PSD #2, the Filling of the Spirit, and now you are ready for your doctrinal training that inevitably will bring glory to our Lord, one way or another.

We need to learn how to apply the promises of God as well as the doctrinal rationales that come from operating in faith, followed by rest, and, if you do this habitually, it becomes a spiritual drill.

Because you have begun the spiritual life through the use of the first three PSD’s Rebound, Filling, and the Faith-rest drill, then you begin to automatically treat people as the fourth PSD commands - Grace Orientation.

LUK 6:31 “And just as you want people to treat you, treat them in the same way.”

You reveal the importance of  Doctrinal Orientation which means that basically you make decisions according to the Word of God and not the emotion of man.

The first five verses, the emphasis is upon believers and their invisible assets that the Lord gives to become spiritual adults.

  1. A personal sense of destiny;
  2. Personal love for God;
  3. Impersonal love for all;
  4. Contentment and +H

10.Ultimate-Occupation with Christ.


The first five verses, the emphasis was upon believers and their responsibility to learn about the Problem-Solving Devices and how they work and what they provide for every single believer.

The first five problem solving devices deal with the believer as a priest representing himself to the Lord.

Once you enter into this part of the spiritual life that the Lord has provided then notice what follows the believers who have obeyed our Lord’s commands.

When we live is with the Lord as our shepherd, we will not run around wanting things because as PSA 23:1 says, The Lord is our shepherd, we shall not want.

Because our Lord is “the One” that the scriptures tells us all about, let’s look at a few passages that teach that the Lord is the One that the Word of God exalts.

Do you know who was the first one in the Gospels who pointed to our Lord and said, “He is the one?”

If we replace the pronoun “He” with the phrase “He is the One,” then notice how fantastic the genius of God is once again.

PSA 23:1  (A Psalm of David.) The Lord is the One who shepherds me, I shall not want or I shall not be in hunger spiritually.

PSA 23:2  “He is the One,” who makes me lie down in green pastures.

“He is the One” who leads US beside quiet waters.

PSA 23:3, He is the One who restores my soul;

He is the One who guides us in the paths of righteousness for His sake.

PSA 23:4   Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; because He is the One who is with me.

PSA 23:5, He is the One who prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies;

Verse 5, He is the One who has anointed our head with oil;

He is the One who cause our cup of blessings to overflow.

PSA 23:6  Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever because He is the one.

In JOH 9:37, our Lord said to the blind man both naturally and spiritually “You have both seen Him, and He is the one who is talking with you.”

In ACT 5:31  “He is the one whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

1CO 3:19   For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness.”

In JOH 1:33,  “He is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.

In ACT 7:35  Moses said, He [TLJC] is the one whom God sent {to be} both a ruler and a deliverer.

ACT 10:42  “He is the One who has been appointed by God as Judge of the living and the dead.

ROM 8:33   Who will bring a charge against God's elect? He, God, is the One who justifies;

Do you realize that in 1JO 5:5, the Word of God teaches us that we can be the one also?  1JO 5:5  And who is the one who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

DEU 20:4  for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.

DEU 3:22  'Do not fear them, for the Lord your God is the one fighting for you.'

DEU 31:6 “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.”

JOH 8:44, our Lord says to the so-called religious leaders of His day that they had the devil as their father.


  1. “You are of your father the devil.”
  2. “You want to do the desires of your father, the devil.”


  1. Satan or the devil was a murderer from the beginning.


  1. The devil does not stand in truth; because he really has no ability to do so because all his truth is based upon a counterfeit truth or satanic lies.


In GAL 1:6, the apostle Paul warn us about a counterfeit Gospel – which he calls a different Gospel, and so he said; GAL 1:6I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel;


2Co 11:4 we are warned about the false teachers who preach another Jesus whom we have not preached,


Then in 2Co 11:4b, we are warned about aa different or a counterfeit  spirit.


Then in 1TI 4:1, we have counterfeit doctrines; But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,


  1. “You are of your father the devil.”
  2. “You want to do the desires of your father, the devil.”
  3. Satan-devil was a murderer from the beginning.
  4. The devil does not stand in truth; because he has no truth especially within.


  1. He has no truth in him;
  2. He speaks lies from his own demonic nature;
  3. He is a liar;
  4. He is the father of lies.


Now, all of these things and more can be answered by our Lord concerning the Truth because, when it comes to truth our Lord tells us in 1Jo 4:8 that “God is Love.”
