Virtue in the believer is the visible manifestation of the invisible.

Friday, April 30, 2004

Virtue is the foundation on which that which is true, honorable, just, of proper motivation, and that which is commendable is built upon.

Virtue in the believer is the visible manifestation of the invisible – 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.

JAM 4:14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.

The opportunities of being in touch with eternity exist now and yet most believers can just keep in touch with time.
