The riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy which He prepared beforehand for glory; Prt 12.
Friday, February 11, 2011
This is the thinking of the adult believer and the one on the road to becoming a full-time, full pledged, vessel of honor.
The full-time, full pledged, vessel of honor will have times when he experiences the feelings of inadequacies.
They are incompetent; and their limitations are limitless.
Human limitation is a fact of life, a hard truth of life but one that makes life easier when we accept it.
The full-time, full pledged, vessel of honor knows how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor.
1TH 4:3, For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,
in 1TH 4:4, Paul says that each of you know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,
The human body is a vessel that can be most affected by sexual sins which destroy the full-time, full pledged, vessel of honor.
Because it is the vessel of honor that advances to spiritual maturity.
The vessel of honor executes the PPOG.
The vessel of honor spends enough time inside the PPOG and under the ministry of whomever is his right pastor to learn the principles of the mystery doctrine of the Church-age.
The vessel of honor learns the divine equation of Invisible God plus invisible assets plus invisible power equals the invisible hero.
No one can become a vessel of honor an invisible hero apart from PMA of Bible doctrine.
The vessel of honor emphasizes consistent exposure to and cognition of the mystery doctrine of the Church-age, through which the believer attains spiritual maturity and provides invisible impact.
Paul dealt with this same principle of lust and the vessels of honor in
2TI 2:20, Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also vessels of wood and of earthenware, and some to honor and some to dishonor.
2TI 2:21, Therefore, if a man cleanses himself from these things, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.
You are a vessel for honor, sanctified, useful to the Master, prepared for every good work.
2TI 2:22, Now flee from youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.
Now, if more and more believers truly believed that deep down inside they have exhausted all their resources and they have nothing left to give, they would be ready for their vessel filled with the divine power.
We have heard it in so many ways, in so many different approaches, 66 books written by 40 different authors, all inevitably agreeing and bearing the same message.
JOH 6:63, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life.”
The only means that God has chosen to use and limit Himself to because of the Angelic Conflict, is found under the principle of theopneustos which means breathing in and breathing out, and therefore God-breathed.
Theo means God, pneo means to breathe.
Breathing means inhale and exhale.
There are many translations which translate this passage by that exact word, “All Scripture is God-breathed” referring to the doctrine of inspiration.
What does the phrase “All Scripture is inspired by God or God-breathed” really mean? It means that God the Holy Spirit so supernaturally directed the human writers of Scripture, that His complete message to mankind was recorded with perfect accuracy in the original languages of Scripture.
2TI 3:16-17, All Scripture is God-breathed and is profitable
As this passage says for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; This is a reference to training which produces integrity.
2TI 3:17, that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
Your spiritual skills must precede your production skills for the performance of divine good. First, the inhale is the ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who communicates to the human author God’s complete and coherent message to that generation and all future generations of history.
Remember that the soul has lungs, the nous and the kardia, the mind and the heart. And that the Holy Bible was written by men who had old sin natures.
HEB 10:35-36, Therefore, do not throw away as worthless your confidence, which keeps on having rich distribution of blessing.
For you keep on having need of perseverance [persistence in perception, cognition, and inculcation of doctrine], in order that when you have accomplished the will of God, you may carry off for yourself the promise.
