What it means to be initiated into the secret of the mystery. Part 46. The Shekinah glory and God emphasis over people emphasis.

1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.
2. Grandchildren are God’s reward for not killing your own children.
3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.
4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn’t have said.
5. The main purpose of holding children’s parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own.
6. We child-proofed our homes, but they are still getting in.
Jesus Christ will not indwell anyone in the Tribulation, including the 144,000 evangelists; they are not indwelt by Christ.
Jesus Christ does not indwell anyone in the Millennium.
1. While the baptism of the Spirit is the means of forming the Royal Family of God, the indwelling of Christ is both the sign of that royalty and another expression of the uniqueness of the Church-age.
2. Along with the sealing ministry of the Holy Spirit, EPH 1:13-14, the indwelling of Christ is a guarantee of our existing escrow blessings.
3. The indwelling of Christ guarantees eternal security.
4. Christ indwells you for the purpose of motivation.
5. Jesus Christ indwells your body so God emphasis would take precedence over people emphasis.
As long as you emphasize experience with people over experience with God, your experience in life will be characterized by self-induced misery from the law of volitional responsibility.
Love – pres-act-ind – philei – fileiâ€™ = personal love for TLJC on a continual basis.
Accursed – noun anathema – a*navqema = under a curse or doomed, without hope or confidence.
Maranatha – Marana qa – noun marana + verb tha = until the Lord comes back, the rapture or the exit resurrection of the Church.
A right relationship with God is the basis for a right relationship with mankind.
Negative experience with God might result in a peaceful relationship with people, but it will be a wrong experience with people, especially under the principle of compromising your doctrinal standards.
A right experience with God will result in knowing and living in God’s predesigned plan and having proper motivation from metabolized doctrine resulting in right interaction with people.
Your priorities are established by those who are closest to you.
God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, everyone of them indwells you and your priorities must be God emphasis over people emphasis.
Virtue developed from living in God’s predesigned plan places relationship with God ahead of relationship with people or with self.
1CO 11:24-25 – keep on doing this in memory of Him.
HEB 12:3 For consider Him [TLJC, the one who indwells you] who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you may not grow weary and lose heart.
MAT 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?”
LUK 22:42 saying, “Father, if Thou art willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Thine be done.”
HEB 12:3 consider Him so that you do not become weary and lose heart or really become discouraged.
JER 17:5 Thus says the Lord, “Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the Lord.”
The eternal state, the new heaven, the new earth, and the New Jerusalem, will be fantastic, but what is it going to be like?
We are in the only dispensation in all of human history that has the privilege of experiencing the same indwelling of the Shekinah glory as the eternal state will experience.
There is nothing between the creation of Adam and the eternal state as important as the dispensation of the Hypostatic union with the Church-age.
