Point 6. The introduction to the four categories of invisible assets.

a. Primary assets
b. Secondary assets.
c. Personnel assets: spiritual gifts.
d. Unique assets: The indwelling of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

a. The primary assets.
Election and Predestination.

Through utilization of the invisible assets, the believer understands his election and fulfills the pre-designed plan of God.

He learns day by day more and more about who and what God is and what these invisible assets are.

Through utilization of the invisible assets, the believer understands his election and fulfills the pre-designed plan of God.

Both of the primary assets, your election and your predestination, mean you have equal privilege and equal opportunity as a believer.

No human legislation can provide equal privilege and opportunity for no legislation can control the old sin nature.

One of those things was to identify us or baptize us into Christ through the baptism of the Spirit.

Our lives were changed positionally when we were entered into union with Christ. Being a member of God’s Royal Family, we have equal privilege in the eyes of God.

1SA 16:7 But the Lord said to Samuel, for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart [right lobe].

1CH 29:17 “Since I know, O my God, that Thou triest the heart and You delight in integrity”

1) We never again are to look at ourselves as being superior or inferior because of any human factors, such as the color of our skin, our nationality, our genetics, our success or failure, our economic status, GAL 3:26-28.
2) We must start thinking of ourselves not as man thinks of us, but as God thinks of us.

1CO 7:19 “Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but what matters is the keeping of the commands of God”

3) As new creatures in Christ Jesus, we have a lifestyle that is infinitely superior to anything the unbeliever can produce such as morality, a facade of concern, whether genuine or misguided, or an overt manifestation of love and affection while using others.

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

As virtue is the visible manifestation of humility toward God, arrogance is the visible manifestation of Satan’s invisible cosmic system.

It can only be manufactured through the laws of divine establishment and living the spiritual life, inside the PPOG.

Virtue is not only a Biblical subject, but it is verified by the etymology and usage of the Greek word arete.

Virtue is the distinctive characteristic of the Royal Family, the inevitable result of executing the plan of God.

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.

Proving one’s worth is arrogance; arrogance is the antithesis of and is antagonistic to virtue.

Virtue is manufactured from perception of doctrine and results in occupation with Christ, while arrogance is manufactured in the cosmic system and is preoccupation with self.

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

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

Pseudo-virtue manufactured in the cosmic system is the basis of all hypocrisy in life.

The cosmic system makes a special offer to all believers: wealth, success, promotion, sex, authority, lifestyle, approbation, and fame, but without honor, integrity, ability, virtue, love, leadership, capacity, or happiness.

Inside the cosmic system there is a constant search for happiness, while in the PPOG, God’s perfect happiness looks for you.

The production of virtue means both happiness and orientation to God’s plan for the Church-age.

Virtue is for a man to know what is good and what is evil, what is useless, shameful, dishonorable; to be the enemy of bad men and bad customs and to be a friend and protector of those who are good.

1. Devotion and loyalty to your family.

PSA 130:3 If Thou, Lord, shouldst mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?
1KI 8:46...for there is no man who does not sin.
ROM 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

ROM 3:10 as it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one;”
ECC 7:20 Indeed, there is not a righteous man on earth who {continually} does good and who never sins.

1CO 13:7 Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1PE 4:8 Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.
JOH 8:7 “He who is without sin among you, let him {be the} first to throw a stone at her.”

The Romans also knew that no one could be virtuous unless they accepted authority (beginning with the authority of their parents).

2. Virtue also meant reverence and devotion to the authorities over the Romans at that time.
3. Virtue meant justice or faith.

By virtue they meant faithfulness or the ability to fulfill one’s obligations and keeping one’s word.

4. Virtue through absolute self-control.
5. Consistency or perseverance.

“Nothing is too difficult for the power of the faithful.”
You may break but you will never break me.
Fortune can take away riches but can never deprive of my courage.

As new creatures in Christ Jesus, we have a lifestyle that is infinitely superior to anything the unbeliever can produce such as morality, a facade of concern, whether genuine or misguided, or an overt manifestation of love and affection while using others.

4) We have to start making application of the fact that we are all “in union” with Christ; we all have exactly the same equal privileges.
5) You will also realize that there is no believer alive, no matter how much he is a loser or a winner, who has any less of a portfolio than anyone else.

6) From salvation on, you are to regard yourself only as a person with invisible assets that stagger the imagination.
7) People always compare themselves with others, thinking of themselves as prettier or uglier, richer or poorer, better personality or inferior personality, zigzagging through their whole life and totally miserable as a result.
