Thursday, September 2, 2004

The Doctrine of Spiritual Metabolism. Point 1. Definition.

Point 2. The First Step Toward Spiritual Metabolism Begins with the Believer’s Free-will.

a. The believer must make a decision not to forsake assembling together, HEB 10:25.
b. The filling of the Spirit.

c. Once the human spirit is taught the believer automatically understands it as “knowledge” or gnosis.
d. It is only when gnosis is transformed into epignosis that the believer can receive the momentum to keep going.

Point 3. God’s grace provisions for the metabolization of Bible doctrine.

a. Life; JOB 33:4.
b. A local assembly; HEB 10:25.
c. A pastor; EPH 4:11-12.
d. Volition; GAL 6:7.
e. Time; EPH 5:16.
f. A Plan; EPH 2:10.
g. Human Spirit; Titus 3:5.
h. The Holy Spirit as your Mentor; JOH 14:26.

Point 4. The Mentorship of the Holy Spirit Related to Spiritual Metabolism.

Parakleton – paravklhton = primarily a helper, a counselor, someone who can instill wisdom into your soul – a perfect illustration of the ministry of God the Holy Spirit during the metabolization of Bible doctrine.

“Because He lives with you” – par + humin = par= un = the ministry of the Holy Spirit to the disciples during the dispensation of the hypostatic union.

“And He will be in you” – en + locative plural -humin – e*n un = the ministry of the Holy Spirit to Church-age believers.

The filling of the Holy Spirit is the first power option and the first spiritual skill in the spiritual life.

The filling of the Spirit converts human I.Q. into spiritual I.Q., so that we have equality to learn spiritual phenomena.

The second power option and the second spiritual skill is the word of God circulating in your stream of consciousness through the teaching ministry of the Holy Spirit as a part of perception, metabolization and application of Bible doctrine.

1. The Frame of Reference.
2. The Memory Center.
3. Vocabulary Storage.
4. The Categorical Storage.
5. The Conscience.
6. Momentum Department.
7. Wisdom Department.

The third spiritual skill is the problem solving devices deployed on the FLOT line of the soul. FLOT is a military acronym for the forward line of troops.

The filling of the Spirit, metabolized doctrine circulating in the stream of consciousness, and the problem solving devices on the FLOT line of the soul are the three spiritual skills developed from metabolized doctrine.

Point 5. The Indwelling and Filling of the Spirit Related to Mentorship.

JOH 4:24 “God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

2CO 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.

MAT 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,

a. Spirit of God, GEN 1:2,
MAT 3:16.
b. Spirit of the Lord, LUK 4:18.
c. Spirit of Jehovah, JDG 3:10.
d. Spirit of the Lord God, ISA 61:1.
e. Spirit of the living God, 2CO 3:3.

f. My Spirit, GEN 6:3.
g. The Spirit of our God, 1CO 6:11.
h. The Lord, the Spirit, 2CO 3:18.
i. The eternal Spirit, HEB 9:14.
j. The Spirit of glory, 1PE 4:14.
k. The Spirit of life in Christ Jesus, ROM 8:2.

1. The Holy Spirit indwells the body of the believer in order to guarantee the most fantastic blessings from the function of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2. The Holy Spirit indwells the body of the believer to create a temple for the indwelling of Christ as a guarantee of blessing.

The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s body is found in ROM 8:10; 1CO 3:16; 1CO 6:19-20; 2CO 6:16.

2TI 1:13 Retain the standard of sound doctrines which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. Guard, through the Holy Spirit (HG) who dwells in us, the treasure [doctrine] which has been entrusted to you.

3. To provide a permanent base for the Holy Spirit’s availability as your mentor and the agent for metabolizing doctrine.

The indwelling of the Spirit is permanent and not effected by experiential status.

The indwelling of the Spirit is never mandated because it is a fact, unchangeable and permanent whether the believer is carnal or spiritual, winner or loser.

The Holy Spirit’s function related to the human soul is the doctrine of the mentorship of the Holy Spirit who is given for the purpose of metabolizing Bible doctrine.

The filling of the Spirit is mandated, EPH 5:18, “keep walking by means of the Spirit” = the function of the spiritual life which comes from metabolizing Bible doctrine.

God the Father gave the Church God the Holy Spirit as their mentor.
This never happened before in human history; it is unique to the Church-age.

JOH 16:12 I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear {them} now.

The filling of the Holy Spirit plus human I.Q. equals spiritual I.Q. plus the teaching ministry of the Spirit with human volition means metabolizing Bible doctrine resulting the execution of the PPOG.

JOH 14:26 “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and He will cause you to remember all that I have said to you.”

If God the Holy Spirit is not your mentor in relationship to the teaching ministry of the word of God and the metabolization of Bible doctrine, then you are a loser believer.

The First Advent of the Holy Spirit occurs at the beginning of the Church-age after the First Advent of Christ had occurred.
The Second Advent of the Holy Spirit occurs at the beginning of the Millennium after the Second Advent of Jesus Christ.

Guide – fut-act-ind – hodegesei – o = the Holy Spirit would guide them with the interpretation of the formation of the New Testament canon and the ministry of God the Holy Spirit as your mentor-teacher of Church-age doctrine.

The unfinished message of our Lord Jesus Christ found in the epistles of the New Testament.

It took resurrection, ascension, and session, and then God the Holy Spirit was sent as a personal mentor to all believers, but used only by those who are positive toward doctrine.

a. You cannot glorify God unless the Holy Spirit is your mentor.
b. You cannot fulfill the spiritual mechanics of God’s plan unless the Holy Spirit is your mentor and the agent for metabolizing Bible doctrine.
