The secret of the mystery, Part 150. The portfolio of invisible assets from the viewpoint of the believer’s experience.

Sunday, September 10, 2006

Our very own portfolio of invisible assets, prepared for us by God the Father in eternity past.

Point 1. Definition.
“Portfolio” – originated in the English language referring to the flat portable case or briefcase used for carrying documents, securities, or investments.
It also refers to a briefcase in which a person’s investments are legally stored.

In our study it refers to the gifts and works of God for the believer designed from eternity past.

COL 2:2 that their own hearts might be encouraged [ie. stabilized by doctrine], having been taught by means of love, which is the filling of the Spirit and a relaxed mental attitude – resulting in all the wealth that comes from the full assurance of understanding or from the source of technical knowledge resulting in a true knowledge of God’s mystery, that is about Christ Himself.

ISA 30:18 Therefore the Lord longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you.

In TLJC are all the true authentic treasuries and the great deposits of life.

You can choose fun and pleasure and stimuli in the cosmic system which will be followed by tomorrow’s misery or you can choose the treasures which are stored up in Christ.

PRO 8:18 “Riches and honor are with me, Enduring wealth and righteousness.”

You can purchase certain securities which in turn can be used for divine investment.

EPH 5:16 purchasing your time, because the days are evil.

“Portfolio of invisible assets” = the work of God on behalf of the believer in eternity past and the invisible assets which God the Father has provided for each member of the Royal Family of God before creation.
Before these assets are usable, they must be understood.

In your portfolio of invisible assets God provided everything necessary for the function in life, dying, eternity, growing in grace, and the execution and fulfillment of the PPOG.

A. The assets are invisible; we can only come to know that these assets exist by the metabolization of doctrine.
B. These assets are usable in any category of life.

Point 2. The grace principle of the portfolio of invisible assets.

Each member of the godhead has certain responsibilities related to our portfolio of invisible assets.
Each member of the godhead performs certain works by means of grace – we don’t earn or deserve or work for them.

God the Father finished His work for us in eternity past by providing a fantastic plan for all of us, EPH 1:4-5.
God the Son finished the work of salvation for us on the cross, JOH 19:30.
God the Holy Spirit will finish His work for us by conforming us to TLJC, PHI 2:13.

1TH 5:24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
JOB 23:14 “For He performs what is appointed for me, and many such decrees are with Him.”

PSA 138:8 The Lord will accomplish what concerns me; Thy lovingkindness, O Lord, is everlasting;

Point 3. Moses’ use of his portfolio of invisible assets.
HEB 11:27 By means of doctrine [pistis], he [Prince Moses] forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king[Thutmose III], he persevered; he saw the invisible [assets].

Moses made a decision for God by which he gave up the greatest wealth, prosperity, human influence, and romance, all at one time.

Point 4. Three attributes of God are the source of our portfolio of invisible assets: sovereignty, love, and omniscience.
ROM 11:29 For the gifts [escrow blessings for time and eternity] and the calling of God [God electing you] are irrevocable.

EPH 1:5 By means of love He has predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the gracious intention of His will.

In knowing all about us, God still provided for each one of us a portfolio of invisible assets, resulting in providing everything we need to live in the natural realm and the spiritual realm.

Point 5. The portfolio of invisible assets from the viewpoint of the believer’s experience.

Our greatest blessings are completely and totally invisible, and therefore can only be understood by revelation.

Once he reaches spiritual adulthood, life takes a fantastic and unusual turn.
