The new things that have come: The Divine power of God. Part 3.
Friday, July 2, 2010
By the divine power of God the Holy Spirit, the delegated power of God for our perception, metabolization, and utilization of Bible doctrine inside the PPOG.
And the word for treasure is the noun thesauros which means a place in which good and precious things are collected and stored up, a place filled with valuables.
The delegation of the omnipotence of God to the Church-age began with the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
This divine power was not made available until He raised TLJC from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in heavenly places.
Having your priorities straight and being accurate and precise with doctrine is how you put into action the procedures and the mechanics.
One of the terms used to describe God’s plan for you is procedure, which emphasizes the utilization of divine power inside the PPOG.
There is a system of procedure that merges different individualities within the royal family into a system whereby authority is recognized.
In the PPOG, procedure means that there is only one way of doing a thing; the right way.
God’s policy of grace is divine power or omnipotence delegated to Church-age believers so that each believer has the power and ability to fulfill God’s game plan for the Church-age.
We need divine power because of the fact that Satan, as the ruler of this world, has maximum power which is utilized for his evil policy of both moral and immoral degeneracy.
EPH 1:19-20 relates the divine power or omnipotence of God used in resurrection of Christ to the divine power or omnipotence delegated to the Church-age believer.
Before the dispensation of the hypostatic union and the resurrection of the humanity of Christ, divine power was delegated to very few Old Testament believers on a limited basis and on a contingency plan.
Therefore the principle; between the resurrection of Christ and the Rapture of the Church is the greatest power experiment in all of human history.
The pattern for this power experiment began with the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ, 33 years before the
a. The incarnation and hypostatic union, a period of 33 years, terminating with the resurrection of Christ.
b. The Church-age, an indefinite period of time, terminating with the resurrection of the Church.
The Church-Age is the most intensive time of the angelic conflict and consequently the time of the greatest delegation of divine power in human history.
Between the resurrection of Christ and the rapture of the Church is the greatest demonstration of power in all of human history.
