A pipeline is established between the justice and righteousness of God.

Thursday, July 2, 2009

In context, when Paul says it does not depend on the man who wills or the man who runs, but on God who has mercy, he is dealing with pursuing blessings not salvation.

Divine blessing in time must be imputed to the perfect righteousness of God which is in us.

1. Neither thought, nor action can extract blessing from God.

2. Divine blessing is an imputation from the justice of God, to the righteousness of God, at the different stages of spiritual growth and thereafter.

3. God can only provide blessing for capacity for blessing.

4. God’s imputed blessing is designed to glorify God as the tactical victory of the angelic conflict.

5. The tactical victory compliments the strategic victory of our Lord’s death, burial, resurrection, ascension and session at the right hand of the Father.

6. ROM 9:16 is saying that, “if God doesn’t promote you, you are not promoted.”

7. Capacity through maximum doctrine resident in the soul then, is the key to blessing from God.

We have the potential for blessing in the imputation of divine righteousness, we have the justice of God on the giving end.

A pipeline is established between the justice and righteousness of God.

The whole point is that we all start out minus capacity and given equal privilege and equal opportunity.

For these blessings include fantastic wealth and riches and if you’re minus capacity for divine blessings, having wealth and riches would only make you miserable.

If you’re minus capacity for love, having your right man, or right woman would only make you miserable.

It is taught very clearly in GEN 2:18-25, ECC 9:9, 1CO 7:17, PRO 18:22; PRO 19:12, Pro 5, 31, just to name a few.

However, when success turns a believer’s head it always leaves him facing in the wrong direction.

A successful person is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at him or her.

However, success is not the key to happiness.
Happiness is the key to success.

Life’s real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.

Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.

1CH 22:11 “Now, my son, the Lord be with you that you may be successful,”

Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

Remember that success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom.

JOB 5:12 “He frustrates the plotting of the shrewd, So that their hands cannot attain success.”

Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life, but by the obstacles which they have overcome while trying to succeed.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
People will listen more intently when you explain your mistakes than when you explain your successes.

Success usually always occurs in private but failure in full public view.

Minus capacity is the secret, and minus must become plus, and the only way it is possible is through Bible doctrine resident in the soul, and the means by which doctrine is transferred to the soul, is, of course, the perception on a daily basis.

8. Many people have success and accompanying misery, because they have no capacity for their success.

9. Many people are promoted into a perpetual state of misery and frustration, because they have no capacity for promotion, rank, power, or authority.

10. Blessing requires capacity for happiness, for that blessing.

God provides the capacity through doctrine resident in the soul, and there must be capacity before, not after.

There must be capacity before the blessing is imputed, or the imputation of divine blessing and the continual imputation of divine blessings is the basis for the glorification of the Lord Jesus Christ.

PHI 4:8 From now on, members of the Royal family of God, whatever is true [doctrinal], whatever is honorable [noble or worthy of respect], whatever is just [fair or right], whatever is pure [of proper motivation] whatever personal loves exist, whatever is commendable, if there is any virtue [and there is for the mature believer says the first class condition] and if anything worthy of praise [and there is for the mature believer says the first class condition], be concentrating on these things.

PHI 4:9 These things [doctrinal principles] also you have learned [manthano - learned from a teacher under strict academic discipline] and received [or accepted through metabolization of doctrine] and having heard [under discipline]

and have understood by means of me [Paul’s teaching ministry]. Be putting these into action and the God of prosperity shall be with you, all of you [supergrace believers].

PHI 4:10-12 Now, I have received much inner happiness by means of the Lord greatly, that now at length you have revived your concern or thinking for me; indeed, you also were thinking about me, but you lacked the opportunity to express it. Not because I am speaking with reference to poverty or lack; for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am. In fact, I have come to experience, or I have come to know how to be degraded. [That’s divine discipline for reversionism.]  Also I have come to know, what it is to live in prosperity, [that’s supergrace, or ultrasuper grace.]

In every place and in all circumstances I have been initiated into the mystery both how to be well fed, saturated with doctrine, and to hunger for more doctrine, leading to ultra super grace.

PHI 4:13  I have the endowed power, [maximum doctrine resident in the soul] to attain all things, [ultra super grace and dying grace]  By means of the One, God the Holy Spirit who keeps on pouring the power, the doctrine into me.

“if the axe is dull”
refers to the tools that someone uses in positions of authority, therefore he must exert more strength because his tools are dull.

With Bible doctrine, you can sharpen your spiritual tools so that you do not have to exert so much human strength in solving your problems!

Do not attempt great undertakings until you have counted the cost and have the proper tools or the suitable instruments to carry it out.

Wisdom has the advantage of giving success
means that wisdom (doctrine) will give an individual the tools to handle the attacks of the tyrant on the throne!

If you want to traffic in success, you must go the way of wisdom because it has the advantage of giving success.

Whatever the goal of the individual, he cannot be effective with dull and unsharpened tools.

Unskillful and slothful workmen often increase their difficulties by over exertion with the wrong tools or power.

For the believer, the dull tool may be his prayer life!
For the believer, the dull tool may be his prayer life!
The dull tool may be his understanding of doctrine!
For the believer, the dull tool may be his prayer life!
The dull tool may be his understanding of doctrine!
The dull tool may be his lack of the filling of the Spirit!

Most believers have been ignoring the spiritual exercise needed for the sharpness of their spiritual tools of prayer, PMA of Bible doctrine, and the filling of the Spirit!

1TI 4:7 And exercise thyself unto godliness

1TI 4:7 Don’t waste time arguing over foolish ideas and silly myths and legends. Spend your time and energy in the exercise of keeping spiritually fit. (TLB)

HEB 5:14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.

They need to substitute their life of complaining and striving about others and their situation with the sustained energy from the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
