We share everything Christ is and has, for the head and the body are united into one spiritual entity.

Definite article “to” – ToV + adverbial use of adjective – loipon – loipovn = from now on, in the future, or therefore.

“To loipon” – PHI 4:8 From now on,

A delphoi – a*delfoiv = brethren; a reminder to those making this advance that they are members of the royal family of God.

In this dispensation, all believers at the point of regeneration, are entered into union with Christ.

The baptism of the Holy Spirit or being placed in union with TLJC did not occur until Christ was resurrected, ascended and seated at the right hand of God the Father.

Once Jesus Christ was seated at the right hand of the Father, through the expression, “Sit down at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool,” this verified the authenticity of the work of Christ on the Cross.

Jesus Christ is royalty because He is God -divine royalty.
He has a royal family – God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ is also Jewish royalty – He is called the Son of David. Son of God is His divine royalty; Son of David is His Jewish royalty.

A third type of royalty with the ascension of Jesus Christ = His battlefield royalty.

When God the Father said to TLJC, “Sit down at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool,” He was given the highest type of royalty related to the angelic conflict – battlefield royalty = “King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.”

The Jewish age was brought to a screeching halt, and the Church-age began.

It is to call out (ekklesia), a royal family for the battlefield royalty of Jesus Christ.

Because of its uniqueness, the Church-age began with the baptism of the Holy Spirit whereby the believer is entered into union with Christ.

We share His life, eternal life, 1JO 5:11-12.
We share His righteousness, 2CO 5:21.
We share the election of Christ, an escrow election, EPH 1:3-4.
We share the destiny of Christ, predestination, EPH 1:5-6.

We share the sonship of Christ,
GAL 3:26, “sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
We share the heirship of Christ, heirs of God and joint-heirs with the Son of God, ROM 8:16-17.
We are a royal priesthood, sharing the priesthood of Christ, 1PE 2:5,9.

We have eternal security; we can never get out of union with Christ whether we are winners or losers.
We are adopted into the royal family of God, EPH 1:5.
We are a royal family of kings, 1CO 4:8.

We share everything Christ is and has, for the head and the body are united into one spiritual entity.

Your life, no matter how dull it may appear to you at times, or how difficult it is, your life has very definite meaning, purpose and definition.

Whatever – pronoun hosa – o@sa = there are many areas and directions for the capacity of life for the royal family.

To be – pres-act-ind – estin – e*stiVn = the following six adjectives describe certain areas of supergrace capacity for life.

Whatever is:
– true, doctrine.
– honorable, establishment.
– right or righteous; just, fair.
– pure.
– lovely or the capacity to love.
– of good repute that is commendable.

If anything of virtue, if anything worthy of praise exists (and it does), you, yourselves be concentrating on these things.

“True”- predicate nominative neuter singular – a*lhqh – alethe = the doctrines, principles, and policies of God as preserved in the word of God and transferred into your soul by daily P.M.A. of B.D.

“You cannot apply what you know, you can only apply what you understand.”

This is the type of believer who lives in truth and has capacity for life because he not only knows and understands the truth, but he can apply the truth to his life.

Truth is a passion.
One cannot learn it; one must possess it.

JOH 18:38 “What is truth?”

MAT 16:25 “For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.”

JOH 6:51 “I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever; and the bread also which I shall give for the life of the world is My flesh.”

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

Truth or doctrine is that which will cause you to be more stable, more certain and more sure than ever before.

It will cause you to be certain, confident, positive and assured without being arrogant – a vital part of truth is humility.

PRO 11:2 When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom.

Truth will cause you to be certain, confident, positive and assured without being arrogant – a vital part of truth is humility.
