Grace Bible Church

Real issue: Are you ready to go forward in God’s plan or are you getting ready to quit, throw in the towel, murmur and complain because things are not turning out the way you  planned.


PHI 3:7  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.


PHI 3:12  Not that I have already obtained it [the resurrection life or the ultra supergrace status],


or have already reached the objective, but I continue pressing on that I may attain that [or overtake that, or gain that, arrive at the objective] on account of which I was overtaken by Christ Jesus.


PHI 3:13  Brethren [members of the Royal Family of God], I evaluate myself as not yet having attained the objective [ultra-supergrace or the ultimate objective in time, living in resurrection life]:


but one thing I concentrate upon: constantly forgetting the things that lie behind and pursuing vigorously to what lies ahead,


PHI 3:14  I keep on pressing on toward the objective for the purpose of the reward belonging to the upward call of God [Father], by means of Christ Jesus.


Phi 3:15  Therefore, as many as are spiritually mature, let us have this attitude, in fact, if in anything you have a different attitude, the God will also reveal that to you.


The majority of the human race still rejects the Lord Jesus Christ and the majority of believers still do not even consider decisions from the Supreme Court of Heaven by the Supreme Court Judge.

 Amplified – JER 9:25   “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “that I will punish all who are circumcised [the religious Jews who were circumcised on the eighth day according to the Mosaic Law]


and yet [the religious Jews who were uncircumcised literally in their heart — which is a spiritual circumcision ].


ACT 7:51   “You men who are stiff‑necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears are always resisting the Holy Spirit; you are doing just as your fathers did.

Uncircumcised in heart = the Jews of the first century resisted the ministry of God the H.S. as He invited everyone to called them and waited for them to make a decision for or against the Lord Jesus Christ who is their Savior.


It is the spiritual believer who has a spiritual circumcision in view in ROM 2:28  For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly [that would be a religious  Jew]; neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh.


It is the New Man or the New Creature that the Lord is after as He considers the spiritual transformation taken place within the believer.


ROM 2:29  But he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that which is of the heart, by the Spirit, not by the letter; and his praise is not from men, but from God.


The difference between the natural circumcision and the spiritual circumcision is the difference between life and death.


1CO 7:19   Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but {what matters is} the keeping of the commandments or commands of God.

GAL 2:7 says…But on the contrary, seeing that I had been entrusted with the gospel to the uncircumcised, just as Peter {had been} to the circumcised


Paul was the spiritual father to the uncircumcised gentiles. Whereas Peter as well as James was the spiritual father to the circumcised Jews.


James says that even demons believe in God and they believe that  God exists.


You can believe that God exists and so does Satan and the demons believe that; Jam 2:10.


Isa 5:4  “What more was there to do for My vineyard that I have not done in it? Why, when I expected {it} to produce {good} grapes did it produce worthless ones?


SCOH = Luk 6:35 “But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil {men.}


The attitude of the Supreme Court Judge, the Lord Jesus Christ, who does not play favoritism is always just and fair because He is always perfectly right being always perfectly righteous.


This is what happens when a believer doesn’t take the Lord’s word seriously and instead focuses in on himself or herself rather than the Lord’s will.


The majority of the Israeli military have ignored certain important spiritual issues that the Lord has been trying to train them for on the battlefield.


One of the passages that we noted concerning who and what the Lord is and what He does to train us; Psa 18:30-34.


Eye gate and ear gate = PSA 18:34   He trains my hands for battle, So that my arms can bend a bow of bronze.


All of those verses describe the believer’s state when he falls away from the Lord and has gone AWOL.


These are the types of believers who do not recognize that they are being used by Heylel or by Satan, that devil!

ISA 3:9 = faces bear witness against them. And they display their sin like Sodom; They do not {even} conceal {it.} Woe to them! For they have brought evil on themselves.


In Isa 28, the prophet reveals that the priests, the prophets, and the leaders have all turned to substances that blind them from seeing the truth within us.


It may be something that is “too small”  in your opinion or “too great” in your opinion, but with God all things are possible.


We even have a selection that you can search for which talks about winner believers receiving rewards in this life for their faithfulness and dedication to TLJC as the SCJ in the SCOH.


A winner believer is allowed to roam around and have the privilege of coming and going as a winner believer.


REV 2:17   ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes [the winner believer],


to him [the winner]  I will give {some} of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name or a new title written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.’


DEU 30:19  “I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,


DEU 30:20  by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days,


that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”


This is a reflection of the intimacy which will exist between the Lord Jesus Christ and the winner believer.


King David not only misses being the leader over the Israeli military but he is becoming lazy and slothful and is no longer content with who he is and with what he possesses, which is the inheritance of God.


King David is bored and slothful and he also has lost the capacity he once had to be blessed by God with appreciation for what God blesses.


PRO 19:15  Laziness casts into a deep sleep, And an idle man will suffer hunger.


Solomon’s mother Bathsheba teaches Solomon;  PRO 31:27  She looks well to the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness.


In 2SA 12:23, the Supreme Court of Heaven reveals what happens when a baby dies?   “But now he has died; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again [NO]? I shall go to him [Heaven ], but he will not return to me.”


The Divine Order of things says that, first of all, we all need to identify how we became sinners.


The divine order of things is found PSA 51:1  (For the choir director. A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came to him,) (after he had gone in to Bathsheba.)


Be gracious to me, O God, according to Thy lovingkindness; According to the greatness of Thy compassion blot out my transgressions.


David says that he was conceived out of wedlock by Him and Solomon’s mother — Bathsheba.


This is the principle of the man and woman who passes down the trends of the OSN  while violating others for the sake of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ and the power behind His resurrection.


After David deals with his problems at birth and now he must deal with it in PSA 58:3, which states;  “The wicked are estranged from the womb; These who speak lies go astray from birth.”


After conception then we go on to live in the lies of the Cosmic system and we reject the PPOG and our very own Personal Sense of Destiny.


Just  to be invited to the wedding is a tremendous honor and privilege that comes to all of us as a part of us being in union with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Mat 11:11  “Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen {anyone} greater than John the Baptist; yet he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”


The Church being formed on earth and in Heaven.
The Church on earth is called the body.
The Church in Heaven is called the bride.


On earth, the Church is continuing to grow and is being prepared for the Marriage Feast or the Marriage Supper.


Attending the wedding feast will be not only the Church as the Bride of Christ, but others as well.


The “others” include the Old Testament saints—they will not have been resurrected yet, but their souls and spirits will be in heaven for us and with us.


Joh 13:16-17,  “Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master; neither {is} one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.


The carnal believer is helpless and lacks the humility needed to learn to rebound and recover and then use these principles to do so.


The carnal believer makes war with others including “war against God” rather than rebound and recover.


The question that needs to be answered and understood is how do children handle pressure and adversity?


Use your eye gate and your ear gate and you will come to the correct answer or conclusion to many of the problems we face.


JON 4:11  “And should I not have compassion on Nineveh, the great city in which there are more than 120,000 persons who do not know {the difference} between their right and left hand, as well as many animals?”


This talks about the individual who cannot and does not follow the Lord because they are mentally challenged.


The Lord tells us that all children will be automatically safe and also saved from eternal damnation.


The prophet Gad said in 2Sa 12:23  that believers can go to heaven to meet all the children but the children cannot come back to us.


Here comes the verse which talks about when an individual reaches the age of accountability which is really not an age but it is the mental capacity or ability that the individual has.


PSA 33:5   He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the lovingkindness or graciousness of the Lord.


Go forward to PSA 37:28   For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His godly or mature ones; They are preserved forever; But the descendants of the wicked will be cut off.


Go forward to PSA 89:14   Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Thy throne; Lovingkindness and truth go before Thee.


Again look at PSA 97:2  Clouds and thick darkness surround Him; [however], Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.


ISA 30:18   Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you [tapping His foot] waiting to , And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.


For the Lord is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.


Depending on the age, growth, and maturity of the child, adversity, stress, and circumstances can be all one and the same.


The parents should be the child’s FLOT line of the soul (the Forward Line of Troops).


PRO 1:8  Hear, my son, your father’s instruction, And do not forsake your mother’s teaching;


A godly doctrinal mother will teach her children,  not drop them off at prep school known to some of you as Sunday school and say to the teacher – teach them.


The hand represents working and doing things as unto the Lord.
The frontal on the forward represents the proper mental attitude and motivation.


Jos 24:15 “And if it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”
