The wheel runs on the axle of imputed righteousness which is God's righteousness.
Sunday, November 25, 2007
ROM 9:3 If there were any way I could be cursed by the Messiah so they could be blessed by Him, I’d do it in a minute. They’re my family.
(a) The Abrahamic promise - defines the race for client nation Israel.
(b) The Palestinian covenant - defines the land for client nation Israel, GEN 15:18;
(c) The Davidic covenant - defines the dynasty for client nation Israel,
2SA 7:8-16; PSA 89:20-37.
(d) The New Covenant - defines the restoration of the client nation Israel at the Second Advent and its Millennial modus operandi, JER 31:31-34.
The only way to be included in the unconditional promises, the Abrahamic, Palestinian, Davidic, and New Covenants to Israel, is to believe in Adonai Elohim, Jehovah Elohim, Jesus Christ, the revealed God of the Old Testament.
In our generation, as in every generation, there will be those who do not believe, but it does not change the faithfulness of God toward those who do believe.
Self-determination is a great issue in this parenthesis, Romans 9 through 11, because the unbelieving Jews despise the grace way of salvation, and reject the faith righteousness of God.
The wheel, which is the plan of God, runs on the axle of imputed righteousness which is God’s righteousness.
By rejecting the imputed righteousness of God, which is rejection of Christ, and substituting self-righteousness, which is keeping the law, they have tried to reinvent the wheel, and in effect have superimposed upon the plan of God.
If you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, there is only one person who is totally faithful to you - God.
Divine faithfulness is God’s grace expression to the believer using His perfect character as the basis for expression.
God is perfect, fair, and stable to Himself, and He will be all these things to you as well.
LAM 3:21-25 But there’s one other thing I remember, and remembering, I keep a grip on hope: GOD’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, His merciful love couldn’t have dried up.They’re created new every morning. How great your faithfulness! I’m sticking with GOD (I say it over and over). He’s all I’ve got left.
GOD proves to be good to the man who passionately waits, to the woman who diligently seeks.
Propitiation is the God-ward side of the work of Christ in salvation and God the Father is satisfied with the sacrificial ministry of our Lord on the cross.
Faithfulness is an attitude to something in life which you love, respect, admire, or recognize its authority.
1JO 1:9 “If we acknowledge [name and cite] our sins, He is faithful and righteous, with the result that He forgives us our sins [known sins] and purifies us from all unrighteousness [unknown sins].”
1CO 11:31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we should not be judged.
JER 3:13 “Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against the Lord your God And have scattered your favors to the strangers under every green tree, and you have not obeyed My voice, declares the Lord.”
PSA 32:5 I acknowledged my sin to Thee, and my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”; And Thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. Selah.
PSA 38:18 For I confess my iniquity; I am full of anxiety because of my sin.
God is justified to forgive us because He has been propitiated by the sacrifice of His perfect Son.
There is no worthiness or merit in naming a sin.
Legalism says you must feel sorry to be forgiven, but grace says that how you feel is not the issue.
Only arrogant people say you can commit a sin which will cause God to abandon you and not forgive you.
Only arrogant people stick their nose in the affairs of others, not having all the facts but giving their own so-called personal opinion about someone’s alleged sin.
Men, who become like silly women in 2TI 3:6, are influenced by the evil of those who have NVTD.
God treats us in grace and grace forgiveness is never a license to sin, but is the motivation to press on to spiritual maturity.
The basis of God’s faithfulness is His grace, JAM 1:17.
God’s faithfulness is also manifest in His perfect plan.
Knowing every sin, human good deed, and evil thing we would ever do, God still selected us to have human life at birth, and elected us to equal privilege and equal opportunity at salvation.
As a part of His faithfulness, God has provided for every believer His very own plan in which to function as the basis for equal opportunity to reach spiritual maturity.
