JER 49:23   Concerning Damascus. “Hamath and Arpad are put to shame, For they have heard bad news; They are disheartened. There is anxiety by the sea, It cannot be calmed.

Damascus adopted a hostile attitude to the apostle Paul (2Cor 11:32), while Hamath and Arpad were living in apathy and lukewarmness with the Lord.

Mystery doctrines = are made up of Ten Special Doctrines that were never taught in the Old Testament and were a mystery even to the apostles of Christ.

 

  1. The baptism of the Spirit which results in the creation of a new spiritual species and the royal family of God.

 

  1. The predesigned plan of God is unique for the Royal Family of God.

 

  1. A phenomenal portfolio of invisible assets belongs to each one of us as royal family of God.

 

  1. For the first time in history, every believer, regardless of his background, attainments or lack of attainments, handicaps, success, or any other distinguishing human factor, has equality given by God Himself.

 

  1. We have our unique royal commissions: royal priesthood and royal ambassadorship.

 

  1. We have the unique mystery doctrines of the Church Age.

 

  1. Every member of the Trinity indwells every believer.

 

  1. We have the unique availability of divine power.

 

9 .  This is the first time in history when there are no prophecies to be fulfilled during the Church Age.

 

10 . This is the dispensation of invisible heroes.

 

  1. Let’s take, the first mystery doctrine, #1, is the Baptism of the Spirit which results in the creation of a New Spiritual Species or a “New Creation in Christ as The Royal Family of God.

 

  1. The protocol plan of God is what I call the abbreviation PPOG which is a unique plan that I call your life your personal sense of destiny was created for The Royal Family of God only.

 

I have divided into two realms or two sections of the Word of God, the PPOG, the predesigned plan of God, and the PSD, the personal sense of destiny.

There is what I chose to abbreviate the PPOG referring to the predesigned plan of God because one of the words that we must know and realize its impact is the word predestination which is the divine foreordaining of all that will happen, and it is for believers only.

It never means that God violates the free will of others and predestines them to make choices, especially with regard to salvation and your personal sense of destiny, that you have from the Lord which is a place that the Lord tailored and designed just for you.

It has been particularly associated with the teachings of Hyper-Calvinism which says that God predestines some people to go to Heaven and He predestines others to go to Hell; and both of them are blasphemous, (profane; ungodly; unholy; disrespectful.

The second part of the mystery of the PPOG is that all believers have a particular plan that God chose for them and that is their PSD, personal sense of destiny, tailored just for you.

The personal sense of destiny that the Lord promises His followers is the capacity to enjoy life, with the woman you love as you find your calling in life and niche for your life as a part of your blessings or your calling in life; Ecc 9:9.

Ecc 9:9  Enjoy life (lives – plural = capacity) with the woman whom you love all the days of your fleeting life [right woman in time] which He [God] has given to you [believers or unbelievers] under the sun; for this is your reward in life, and in your toil in which you have labored under the sun.

 

  1. The third mystery doctrine is a phenomenal portfolio of invisible assets belongs to each one of us as royal family of God.

 

A portfolio is a brief case with important and secret documents and investments held by a person or organization.

The purpose of finding your right pastor-teacher who we are told that the Holy Spirit has assigned a certain pastor to a certain group of people (Act 20:28) to a certain group of people, and He has also a certain group of people (1Pe 5:2-3).

  1. The baptism of the Spirit results in the creation of a new spiritual species and the royal family of God.

 

  1. The protocol plan or PPOG is unique for the royal family of God only.

 

  1. A phenomenal portfolio of invisible assets belongs to each one of us as royal family of God.

 

  1. For the first time in history, every believer, regardless of his background, attainments or lack of attainments, handicaps, success, or any other distinguishing human factor, has equality given by God Himself.

 

  1. We have our unique royal commissions: royal priesthood and royal ambassadorship.

 

  1. We have the unique mystery doctrines of the Church Age.

 

  1. Every member of the Trinity indwells every believer.

This never existed before in history!

 

  1. We have the unique availability of divine power.

 

  1. This is the first time in history when there are no prophecies to be fulfilled during the Church Age.

 

  1. This is the dispensation of invisible heroes.

 

Authority is our friend; it is for us not against us.

Let me explain to you what society will look would like when the Pivot of believers shrinks to a place when the Lord is no longer respected, honored, or worshipped.

  1. Moral degeneracy
  2. Immoral degeneracy
  3. Amoral degeneracy

Moral degeneracy is manifested by religion and doing good.

Immoral degeneracy is manifested by sins of pleasure.

Amoral degeneracy is manifested by “anything goes, or anyone goes.

Where there is no authority there is anarchy, there is violence, there is burning of buildings, prejudice on all sides, stealing, destroying public property and the Christian way of life is hardly seen.

When authority is not held high but ignored, there is confusion, chaos, evil, law-breaking, sudden terror, consumption, fever, hate, hostility, plagues, sicknesses, sword.

This is followed by vengeance,  pestilence, wrath, weakness, no strength, implacability, lusts, impurity, indecent acts, depraved minds, unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil.

Then even believers become full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, untrustworthy, unloving.

The shrinking pivot of believers become unmerciful, lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without selfcontrol.

They also become brutal, haters of good,  treacherous, reckless, conceited, and more than anything else they are lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.

1PE 4:10   As each one has received a {special} gift, employ it in serving one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.

By the way, the word to employ is the present active participle of diakoneo (dee-ak-on-eh’-o); to be an attendant, to wait upon others, to act as a Christian deacon. Strong’s Concordance.

2TI 3:5  This crowd of both believers and unbelievers hold to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; and we are to avoid such individuals as these.

Authority is our friend and it is for us.

Heb 13:7, “Remember those who rule over you, who communicate the Word from God to you; carefully consider the issue of their way of life; imitate their doctrine.”

You “remember” pastors by attending Bible class, by praying for them, and by understanding that they have an abnormal life.

The issue of a pastor’s way of life is their Bible doctrine not their way of life or their personal tastes in life.

Heb 13:17, “Keep obeying those [pastors] who themselves are ruling over you, and submit to their authority, for they keep watch over your souls, as those who will render an account.

Keep obeying them, in order that they may do this [accounting] with happiness and not with groaning, for this is unprofitable for you.”

Pastors don’t rule over you in the sense of telling you what to do, but in the sense of teaching you what God expects from you and how to execute His plan.

Isa 54:17,  “No weapon that is formed against you will prosper, and every tongue that rises against you in judgment, you will condemn.  This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,’ declares the Lord.”

Since the pastor’s authority is Bible teaching, his ministry does not violate the privacy of the individual priesthood.

1Pe 5:2, “Feed the flock of God among you, not from compulsion, but voluntarily according to the will of God.”

 

2Ti 4:2, “Preach the Word.  Be ready in season and out of season.  Reprove, rebuke, exhort [when warranted by context], and do this with all patience and teaching.”

1Ti 4:10,  “For because of this [communication of doctrine], we work hard to the point of exhaustion, and we hang in there tough because we have confidence in the living God who is the Savior of all men.”

The Doctrine of the Pivot

Point 1 definition.

 

  1. The pivot is defined as the accumulation of mature believers living in a client nation or under civil government in a specific geographical location.

 

  1. While a pivot is composed primarily of mature believers, it may also include those positive believers whose momentum has carried them into spiritual adulthood.

 

  1. Technically, the pivot may include all believers who have fulfilled the principle of “virtue” first as their first priority in the plan of God.

 

Virtue is the visible manifestation of the invisible, i.e., metabolized doctrine and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Basic virtues developed in the PPOG include enforced and genuine humility, love, worship, morality, courage, and confidence.

Virtue is the quality of intrinsic good; it is not proving one’s worth.

Prin – Proving one’s worth is arrogance; improving one’s worth spiritually is prudence.

Believers who reside and function in the PPOG produce virtue, while believers who reside and function in the cosmic system destroy virtue and produce pseudovirtue.

Virtue manufactured inside the PPOG is the source of all true happiness in life.

Pseudovirtue manufactured in the cosmic system is the basis of all hypocrisy in life.

1Pe 2:9  “You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for god’s own possession, that you may proclaim the virtues of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light [PPOG].”

The pivot may include all believers who have fulfilled the principle of “virtue” first as their first priority in the plan of God.

Eph 6:18 by means of all prayer and [humble] petition pray at all times by means of the spirit, and with this in view, or because of this, with reference to this, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints.

The function of intercessory prayer is not visible.

  1. Believers in the pivot stand out in contrast to believers living in the cosmic system, whose arrogance from motivational arrogance results in self-righteous, crusader arrogance.

 

These believers are apostate, recognized by their cliché, their self-righteousness, their crusader arrogance, their distortion of doctrine and disorientation to reality, and they are potential revolutionists.

 

  1. Therefore, the true Christian influence in the national entity is spiritual.

 

Christianity must never be the state, though religion always tries to be the state, (Arab countries like Iran and Syria).

The influence of Christianity is not produced by influencing with Christian principles, but by growing in grace and establishing a pivot that has invisible historical impact.

We believe in and advocate the separation of church and state for the true function of freedom and the fulfillment of human volition in the angelic conflict.

We support the state and establishment, but we are not the establishment.

It does imply that believers in government service must abide by the laws of divine establishment, and must never seek to force Christianity on others.

Four great pivots were formed in the eighteenth century in Holland, Britain, America, and North Germany.
