Preparing yourself for the study of God’s Word

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is— you have trusted in Him for eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to take-in God’s Word so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge your sins privately directly to God the Father. This will assure that you are in fellowship with God the Father and the Holy Spirit’s convicting ministry, also called the convincing ministry will then be able to teach you as the Holy Spirit is the real teacher and the pastor’s message is the vehicle the Holy Spirit uses to convince you what you are learning is true or not.

1 John 1:9 says—“If we confess [simply name, cite or acknowledge to God the Father] our sins [known sins], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [known sins] and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [all unknown and forgotten sins].” NKJV (New King James Version)

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins to God; the issue for you is to believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and you will be saved the very second you believe in Him:

John 6:47 says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” NKJV

Notice again what John 6:47 says, “he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” It doesn’t say, “will have”; it says, “has.” Therefore, the very moment you believe Jesus Christ’s promise of everlasting life, you have it (it’s really just that simple), and it can never be lost or taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-18 says: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for learning God’s Word, if there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:

Unlike the bible study, these notes are not just for reading without watching the video. These notes are more designed to follow along during the sermon and to bring up the “hover pop-up scripture references” (some websites may require to left click the link) when the Pastor asks everyone to turn to that passage in their bibles or as a memory jogger for review after you’ve viewed the video Sermon.

The Doctrine of the Pivot; Part 38.
How the abomination of desolation comes alive.

7. It is clear from the scriptures that the influence and power of both the United States and the RCC will force people to worship the anti-Christ.

What is missing is the power that is behind these beasts which is not human power but demonic power.

When all these things are happening , Eph 6:12 is still a reality and the main power behind the functions of the two beasts.

Eph 6:12 Because our struggle is not against blood [people’s souls] and flesh [their old sin nature], but against the rulers [these are the archons like Abaddon and Beelzebub], against the powers [demon officers who have phenomenal authority], against the world forces of this darkness [kosmokratoras meaning demons who specialize in possessing or influencing the cosmos or world rulers] against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places or against the spiritual forces of evil in the atmosphere around the earth, the stellar universe and in the presence of God.

We cannot get so occupied with the human weapons and vessels that are being used by Satan and the kingdom of darkness and take your eyes off the true enemy.

Rev 12 = we are told that it is a time when Satan and all his angels are kicked out of heaven forever.

The tribulation period is called the devil’s “short time.”
Satan will perform signs and wonders and miracles to deceive those who are alive on the earth at that time.

Matt 12:39 “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign shall be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet;”

2Th 2:7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work only he who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way [Rapture].

2Th 2:8 And then that lawless one [the anti-Christ] will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; – Second Coming

2Th 2:9 that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders,

Image = the Greek noun eikon which means an idol, a statue, a representation, here we go again with the principle of counterfeiting.

The Antichrist will forbid and abolish all religious worship, declaring himself God and requiring worship of himself, with suppression, persecution, and even death to all who won’t bow to him.

Then the real fearful part of the Tribulation Period, the last three and a half years will begin.

When the statue or idol which is set up in the Jewish temple comes alive then this Abomination of Desolation introduces the Great

Tribulation period, the second three and a half years of the Antichrist’s reign.

When you see it standing there, you’ll know the Tribulation has begun.
When you see come alive, you’ll know that the worse time in all of human history is about to begin.

Jesus said you’d see it “standing in the holy place,” Matt 24:15.

Daniel 11:31 said it is the anti-Christ “ that places there the Abomination of Desolation” inside of the Jewish temple, Dan 11:35.

Daniel 12:11 says that “the Abomination of Desolation is “SET UP.” He places it, he sets it up and it stands there, so it’s some kind of standing object.

In the 13th chapter of Revelation we find out that it’s an image of the Antichrist himself.

Why does it say that the image might even speak?
It says it because it was just an idol or a statue that had now come alive!

Gen 2:7 Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

What did TLJC do?
He breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, Gen 2:7.

How does the statue or the idol called the abomination of desolation come alive?

The Image of the Beast will be able to not only speak, but also kill—or cause individuals to be killed somehow.

It will be the ultimate in idolatry: Man worshiping an abominable demon-possessed idol that desolates the world.

The key to understanding this is the fact that the image is related to demons and therefore a sign of demonic power.

The image of the beast refers to the statue that the anti-Christ sets up.
In Daniel 11:31, Daniel writes that it refers to a literal statue or idol that the anti-Christ sets up in the temple during the tribulation period.

Daniel 11:31 “And forces from him will arise, desecrate the sanctuary fortress, and do away with the regular sacrifice. And they will set up the abomination of desolation. – which is a statue representing Satan and the anti-Christ.

In Ezra 9:1-4 it is referred to as a “motionless abomination” or an “appalling abomination”.

The phrase “abomination of desolation” is found in three places in the Book of Daniel, all within the context of the end time Tribulation period; Dan 9:27; 11:31; 12:11.

According to 1 Maccabees 1:54, the abomination that Daniel mentioned was actually erected on the altar of burnt offering.

This statue known as the abomination of desolation is said to be standing, Matt 24:15.


Matt 24:15 “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),

Matt 24:3 “Tell us, when will these things be, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

Matt 24:4 “See to it that no one deceives you.”

A. The activity of terrorism.

B. Riots and escalating crime and evil.

C. Drug wars.

D. A major economic crash.

E. AIDS and other epidemics.

F. Nuclear threats from radical nations.

G. Political corruption.

H. Gross miscarriage of justice by the courts.

I. Welfare abuse.

J. Increasing taxes.

K. Pornography and sickening immorality.

L. Appalling global disasters.

M. Radical “special interest” groups who try and use their money to gain power and influence.

N. Civil war within the nation

The issue is — “Where are you?”
Or — “Where do you stand?”

Prepare yourself for learning the Word of God!

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is; you have believed [trusted] in Him for His promised gift of eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to learn God's Word so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge (confess) your sins privately to God (i.e.; with your thoughts directed only to God the Father).

1 John 1:9 says: "If we confess our sins, He (God) is faithful and just to forgive us our sins (known sins) and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [unknown or forgotten sins]." NKJV (New King James Version) [italics added]; we call this REBOUND, read the full doctrine as to “why” we need to use 1 John 1:9 to grow spiritually. REBOUND

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins; the issue for you is to have faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life: John 3:16, 5:24, 6:47, 20:30, 31.

John 6:47 says: "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me (Jesus Christ) has everlasting life." NKJV [italics added]

Notice again what Jesus said in John 6:47: "…he who believes in Me (Jesus Christ) has everlasting life." It doesn't say, "will have"; it says, "has." Therefore, the very moment you believe in Jesus Christ for His promise of everlasting life, you have it (it's really just that simple; nothing more and nothing less), and it can never be taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift (Ephesians 2:8c) of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-15, 16, 17, 18, says: "14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 18 He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for worship and learning God's Word. If there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:

BEGIN BIBLE STUDY
Unless otherwise noted, scripture quotes and references are from the NASB – New American Standard Bible. However, a few may be corrected translations developed from the exegetical study of the original languages.

The Doctrine of Imputations. Part 2.


We are looking at the Doctrine of Divine Imputations.

Point 1. Definition: Imputation is used as an act of God whereby either condemnation or blessing is ascribed, attributed, reckoned, given, or imposed on the human race.

Point 2. There are three factors in imputation – the source, the nature, the recipient.

The source, which is God Himself.
b. The nature of the imputation–which refers to what is being imputed.
c. The recipient of the imputation–which in our study refers to a human being in a specific status quo.

Under this point there are also two different categories of imputations: The first category of imputations is known as Real imputations; the second category are called judicial imputations. A real imputation means that there is something in us that has a relationship between what is being imputed and where it is being imputed to. In other words, there is a home or an affinity or a resemblance between that which is being imputed and where it is being imputed to.

Real imputations include:

1.human life to the soul. The soul is a place that God imputed life to —- there is a home for life, that is the soul.

2. Adam’s original sin to the old sin nature. Adams sin has a home or a target where it is comfortable with, the OSN.

3. Eternal life to the human spirit. The human spirit is that part of man that God created where He impute eternal life to because it has been created to handle that type of lie, an unlimited capacity within man.

4. Blessings in time to the perfect righteousness in man. +R is used to being blessed.

5. Blessings in eternity to the resurrection body. The resurrection body created by God can handle blessings for all of eternity, unlike the human body with its limited capacity.

Then there are judicial imputations which have nothing to do with where they are being imputed to. For example, our sins imputed to the Lord Jesus Christ and His righteousness imputed to us.

Point 3. The Working Equation of the Plan of God when it comes to Divine Imputations.

Wednesday evening I introduced the importance of this principle that each imputation demands a divine solution.

And the main principle behind this point that we noted is that Every imputation has a divine solution which is found in the word of God.

The equations I gave were based upon three letters = X + Y + Z.

X radical stands for God’s will for the unbeliever.

Y radical contains God’s plan for the believer to receive blessings in time which glorify God.

Z radical contains God’s plan for the mature believer.







Here is the first equation.

X [I. of H.L. + I of AOS = P1 + D = H1] + (I of EL)

This is God’s plan for all unbelievers.

X radical contains God’s will for the unbeliever.

The imputation of human life plus the imputation of Adam’s original sin to the old sin nature, both occurring simultaneously at birth equals the first potential: that being condemned we have the potential of salvation. This potential plus doctrine, here specifically the Gospel, equals the first hope: absolute confidence that once we believe in Christ we will have eternal life. The plus outside of the bracket is the point of faith in Christ when God the Father imputes eternal life to the human spirit created by God the Holy Spirit (regeneration).

Then next, there is Y radical = Y (God’s plan is based upon) [JI#1 + JI#2 = P2 + D = H2] which is the (I of BT)

This is God’s plan for all believers to receive blessings in time which glorify God.

Judicial imputation number one is the imputation of all the personal sins of the human race to Christ on the cross, plus judicial imputation number two, the imputation of God’s perfect righteousness to the believer at salvation. This equals the second potential: executing God’s the PPOG for the Church-age. Because we have the Judicial imputation #2 which is +R that sets us for logistical grace support which can result in blessing.

That’s the principle of Matt 6:25-34, the don’t worry passages but just seek the Kingdom of God first and all things will be added to you. Logistical grace is our equal opportunity under election to fulfill the predesigned plan of God. This potential plus doctrine equals the second hope: absolute confidence that at the point of maturity we will receive escrow blessings beyond our wildest imaginations from the justice of God, which glorify God. The “+” outside of the bracket is the point of spiritual maturity when we receive these blessings.

Then there’s Z radical – Z [IEL + IBT = P3 + D = H3] = Blessings in eternity at the JSOC.

Z radical contains God’s plan for the mature believer. The imputation of eternal life plus the imputation of blessings in time equals the third potential: to be rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ. This potential plus the pertinent doctrine gives us the third hope: absolute confidence that we will receive the most fantastic eternal rewards and blessings at the Judgment Seat of Christ. There are a number of passages where these three different hopes are used.

Rom 5:1-5, Therefore having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope [H1 or the elpis, the absolute confidence] of the glory of God. And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope [H2 elpis – having this absolute confidence that comes from applying the divine solutions] does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Rom 8:24, For in hope we have been saved [that is H1], but hope that is seen is not hope; that we have should not have to be proven, should it?

But if we have the confidence of H1 or H2 or H3, we bring glory to God because we believe in the divine solutions that He has given us!

This principle of hope, not I hope so, but elpis, the absolute confidence, is described for us in Rom 12:10-12 where it says Be devoted to one another in brotherly love; give preference to one another in honor;

Rom 12:11-12, not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope [being happy whether it is [H1, H2 or H3,] persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer,

Rom 15:4 For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope [H2 and H3].

Rom 15:13, God is called the God of hope, Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope [H2 and H3] by the power of the Holy Spirit.

How important is this hope, well look at where hope rates in 1Co 13:13, But now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. As you can see, hope, or elpis, the absolute confidence we need is very under-rated and not really known as it should be. Think about it, we are very familiar with the importance of faith….it is that which is the basis of Christianity; Eph 2:8-9. And we understand the importance of love, it is who God is as it says 1Jo 4:8 God is love. But how many believers are really familiar with the importance of understanding hope!

2Co 3:12, this hope gives us the absolute confidence in what and how we speak; “Having therefore such a hope, we use great boldness in our speech,”

Eph 1:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

Eph 4:4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling;

Over and over again this hope gives us the absolute confidence of what we have been called to.

Phil 1:20-21, according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I shall not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ shall even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

The third Hope, H3 is found in Col 1:3-5, We give thanks to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you, since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and the love which you have for all the saints; because of the hope laid up for you [where?] in heaven, of which you previously heard in the word of truth, the gospel,

Notice that hope is also related to the mystery doctrine of the Church-age in Col 1:27, to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory [all three hopes, salvation, blessings in time, blessings in the eternal state]. This hope is also related to the Rapture in Tit 2:13, Looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus;

Heb 3:6, but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope [H1, H2 and H3] firm until the end.

This hope also gives us the assurance that we need and desire in Heb 6:11, And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end,

Heb 6:18-19, in order that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we may have strong encouragement, we who have fled for refuge in laying hold of the hope set before us. This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil,

Heb 10:23, Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;

That, my friends proves the importance of hope! It is God’s plan for all unbelievers. These hopes are the anchors for momentum in the Christian life. These hopes, when acquired, give great confidence toward the present and the future.

Point 4. Imputation as it relates to Selection and Election.

Since God knew in eternity past that you were going to be a member of the human race, and He knew simultaneously in His omniscience that you would believe in Jesus Christ, God selected you before He elected you. Selection must precede election. Selection is a technical term related to the divine imputation of human life and Adam’s original sin at the point of physical birth. God is the inventor of human life, just as He is the creator. The point is that selection begins at your physical birth when God imputes to your soul human life just like election begins for you at your spiritual birth, when God imputes to you eternal life. And so remember those different translations I gave you concerning this principle of selection such as Isa 44:2.

Isa 44:2, “Thus says the Lord who made you And formed you from the womb, who will help you, ‘Do not fear, O Jacob My servant; And you Jeshurun whom I have chosen.’”

When it says the Lord made you and formed you from the womb the phrase from the womb is mi beten is translated not in the womb, but out from the womb or even ever since your birth. This is why the HCSB (Hebrew Christian Standard Bible says Isa 44:2, This is the word of the Lord your Maker who shaped you from birth;

The point that I want to see is that selection begins at your physical birth when God imputes to your soul human life just like election begins for you at your spiritual birth, when God imputes to you eternal life. So it is vital for you to understand when your first imputation began it was at your physical birth not your conception. Now, this means that every member of the human race has been selected by God to be alive and that God has a purpose for their life. However, there’s a tremendous difference between a purpose and a destiny…just like there’s a tremendous difference between selection and election.

At selection, you have a purpose, 2Pe 3:9.

At election, you have a destiny, Eph 1:5.

Because of the character and nature of God and the imputation of sin at birth, God must provide salvation for everyone to whom He gives soul life to at birth. Therefore, He provides redemption for all. This is called the doctrine of the unlimited atonement. And though I have stated this principle many times, it could never be over-stated.

For God to impute Adam’s original sin to our genetically formed OSN that was given to us by God and then He condemned us at birth because of that and then not to provide salvation for everyone is to say that God is unfair and unjust. It is a direct attack upon the character and nature of God. It is to agree with Satan that God is not just and He is not fair nor is He a God of love. However, God is just and He is fair and He is a God of love which is why He provides salvation for every member of the human race which is called theologically the doctrine of the unlimited atonement. In other words once God imputes to you human life you fall under the doctrine of selection and from then on His desire for you is to fall under the doctrine of election.

Isa 44:24, “Thus says the Lord [Jehovah], your redeemer, the One who formed you [again the phrase is mi beten] outside or out from the womb, `I, the Lord, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself, And spreading out the earth all alone,”

He is the redeemer and the maker of all things. Therefore, under selection, He provides salvation for the entire human race. So, only God has the power to create human life, a power He has not delegated to anyone else. It is the epitome of arrogance to think we have the power to bring forth human life. I mean two twelve year olds can have sex and the female can conceive but only God can give that fetus life. Man’s ability is limited to the formation or creation of biological life in the womb. However, human life does not exist until God creates soul life and imputes it to biological life after the fetus has left the womb.

Psa 100:3, Know that the Lord [Jesus Christ] Himself is God; it is He who has made us [the real you is your soul and that’s what He made], and not we ourselves;

He made us is a reference to the entire human race after Adam and the woman. It refers to the origin of human life, the creation of human life by God. So God makes each one of us by creating soul life and imputing it to biological life at the point of birth. Listen to what the KJ’s Bible says Isa 57:16, For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

Notice God made the souls not the physical body, man did that. Now you know why when you look into the mirror you see what you see. Your parents were the artist behind that reflection, unless, of course, you have had a lot of plastic surgery. And so when Psa 100:3 says, Know that the Lord Himself is God; it is He who has made us [the real you is your soul and that’s what He made], and not we ourselves; And we also know that this refers to the Lord Jesus Christ because Jesus Christ is the Creator of everything, John 1:3; Col 1:16; Heb 1:10.

John 1:3, All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

Col 1:16, For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities all things have been created by Him and for Him.

So, the fact that you have human life means that you have a purpose from God under selection from the sovereignty of God. I mean by His desire for you which ultimately brings Him glory, the purpose of selection and election. And this opens the door for the greatest opportunity ever known to man. Selection can be turned into election which reveals your personal sense of destiny and means that you can capitalize on your escrow blessings that are on deposit. Therefore, that any person is given a personal sense of destiny is a motivational challenge which you cannot ignore.

The purpose of the sovereignty of God at birth is followed by the personal sense of destiny of the sovereignty of God at the point of regeneration. You have been given the greatest opportunity and privileges ever conveyed to any member of the human race. Therefore, the dynamics of the ordinary life in the Church-age become extraordinary.

So, every church age believer has a double destiny: First under the PPOG. Secondly in the eternal state. Hence, the believer has a destiny for both time and eternity. We learn about our destiny only through the perception, metabolization and application of Bible doctrine. For example, through physical birth, we have a purpose in life, for God gave to us soul life when He created us and then imputed our soul-life to the human body that He decided for us.

That in itself indicates that God has a purpose for every human being. So, we must distinguish between purpose and destiny.

Isa 42:5, Thus says God the Lord, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and its offspring, Who gives breath to the people on it, And spirit to those who walk in it,

The word breath is the Hebrew noun neshamah which means breath and when God gives breath, neshamah, the spark or life or the breath of life, He has a purpose for your life. So there is no soul life until God gives it. Therefore, the very fact that you are alive signifies that God has a purpose for your life. Through physical birth, the purpose exists. However, the purpose is meaningless without regeneration. Therefore, through physical birth, God has a purpose for your life, through regeneration or spiritual birth, God has a destiny for your life. And that destiny is designed to go with the purpose. The purpose comes from physical birth. The destiny comes from spiritual birth.

Therefore, you have a two-fold destiny.

First, a destiny in time which is the execution of the PPOG.
b. A destiny in the eternal state in which God has willed His highest and best for you as a part of your escrow blessings.

Preparing yourself for the study of God’s Word

Before we begin, if you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ (that is— you have trusted in Him for eternal life), it is important to prepare yourself to take-in God’s Word so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge your sins privately directly to God the Father. This will assure that you are in fellowship with God the Father and the Holy Spirit’s convicting ministry, also called the convincing ministry will then be able to teach you as the Holy Spirit is the real teacher and the pastor’s message is the vehicle the Holy Spirit uses to convince you what you are learning is true or not.

1 John 1:9 says—“If we confess [simply name, cite or acknowledge to God the Father] our sins [known sins], He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins [known sins] and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness [all unknown and forgotten sins].” NKJV (New King James Version)

If you have never personally believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior (that is, believed in Him for eternal life), the issue for you is not to name your sins to God; the issue for you is to believe by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life and you will be saved the very second you believe in Him:

John 6:47 says: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” NKJV

Notice again what John 6:47 says, “he who believes in Me [Jesus Christ] has everlasting life.” It doesn’t say, “will have”; it says, “has.” Therefore, the very moment you believe Jesus Christ’s promise of everlasting life, you have it (it’s really just that simple), and it can never be lost or taken away from you (John 10:28-29). Furthermore, the gift of everlasting life (also called eternal life in scripture) is available to every human being; there are absolutely no exceptions.

John 3:14-18 says: “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” NKJV

Let us now bow our hearts and take a moment to prepare for learning God’s Word, if there is any known sin in your life, this is the time to just cite it privately to God the Father with your thoughts directed towards Him. With your head bowed and your eyes closed, you have total privacy in your mind and soul:

NOTES
Unlike the bible study, these notes are not just for reading without watching the video. These notes are more designed to follow along during the sermon and to bring up the “hover pop-up scripture references” (some websites may require to left click the link) when the Pastor asks everyone to turn to that passage in their bibles or as a memory jogger for review after you’ve viewed the video Sermon.

The Doctrine of the Pivot. Part 37.
Listen to what the Spirit says to the Church.
Celebrate the Lord’s Supper.

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
The Holy Spirit said it seven times in Rev 2:7 2:11; 17; 29; Rev 3:6; 3:13; 3:22.

All you have to do is check on it yourselves and whether you disagree or agree with the interpretation, the main issue is what the subject is.

According to Isa 11:1-2, the seven Spirits of God refer to the sevenfold ministry of God the Holy Spirit which was upon the Lord Jesus Christ who is speaking.

The sevenfold ministry of the Spirit is found in Isa 11:2 which says And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.

1. Indwelling of the Spirit
2. Filling of the Spirit.
3. Spirit of understanding – ability to receive doctrine.
4. Spirit of counsel which is the guidance of the Spirit.
5. The spirit of strength to sustain the humanity of Christ.
6. The spirit of knowledge which gave Him discernment.
7. The spirit of the fear of the Lord meaning His awe and respect for His Father.

The word translated angels is angelos which is really a transliteration which means a word brought over into another language using the exact letters of each of the alphabet.

The translation describes what the word actually refers to and in Rev 1:20, angelos means a messenger not an angel.

Rev 1:20b the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches it refers to the messengers or the pastor-teachers over the churches like Sardis and therefore it refers to the pastor-teachers who are the messengers over those type of churches.

Rev 3:1 “And to the angel [or angelos – the P-T today] of the church in Sardis write: He who has the seven Spirits of God [the sevenfold ministry of God the Holy Spirit] and the seven stars [a reference to the completed number of messengers or pastors in every generation],

He is talking about those who need to change their attitude at the time that He is ready to come back.

He is talking about the days of Noah when God was getting ready to judge the world and people were laughing at and mocking Noah just before the judgment came.

Do not be like the Jews who ignored their responsibilities before the first Christmas or before the first advent or the first time our Lord came on the earth.

2Co 13:5 Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus
Christ is in you unless indeed you fail the test?

The main issue = If TLJC is in us then how should we live?
Gal 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me or through me;

One way or the other, we make choices every day either through omission or submission.

Sometimes not doing anything at all is doing something whether you know it or not.

Again, it is the principle that – As goes the believer, so goes the nation.

There were periods of apostasy in Israel in the Old Testament and God dealt with them, and the apostle Paul tells us not to think that
God will not do the same to us.

One day when the Lord comes back and sets up His Millennial kingdom both Jews and Gentiles will live in peace and prosperity with Him for 1,000 years.

Our biggest problem that we are facing as a nation today is not ISIS or ISIL, it’s not terrorism, or Russia, China, or North Korea but our biggest problem the church is facing is fallen away from God into apostasy.

Apostate believers ignore passages like Jam 1:22 which says “Prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who deceive themselves.

They ignore passages like Jam 1:25 But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man shall be blessed in what he does.

They ignore Jam 4:17 Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do it, to him it is sin.

They ignore Heb 4:11 Let us therefore be diligent or study to enter God’s rest, lest anyone fall through following the same example of disobedience. as the Jews did

They ignore what Peter said on his dying bed in 2Pe 1:10 Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble;

Apostasy has always been around in every generation, but it’s the size of apostate believes that is the real important issue.

I’m not talking about unbelievers but believers being used by Satan to discredit doctrinal teaching and the believer’s commitment to the daily intake of God’s word or literally our “Daily Bread.”

There are people who make it seem like you’re a fanatic if you listen to the word of God daily, or that you are getting puffed up because you’re getting of too much knowledge.

Neh 8:18 Ezra read from the book of the Law of God daily, from the first day to the last day.

Pro 8:30, wisdom {Heb. chokmah is speaking} Then I [doctrine] was beside Him, as a master workman; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him,

Doctrine also promises blessings to those who listen to it daily in
Pro 8:34 Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my doorposts.


TLJC made it crystal clear that we would need the word of God daily to survive in Matt 4:4 and LUK 9:23.

Luk 9:23 And He was saying to them all, “if anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross [when?] daily, and follow Me.

TLJC not only learned doctrine every day in Luk 2:40, 52; but in Luk 19:47 And He was teaching daily in the temple; [and that is why] and the chief priests and the scribes and the leading men among the people were trying to destroy Him,

Acts 16:5 So the churches were being strengthened in the Christian faith [the Christian doctrines], and were increasing in number daily.
Because life has changed drastically and knowledge has increased so rapidly – through technology it is possible for you today to have some sanctified time every day when you can fellowship with God by listening or reading His word.

Something so simple but so profound is at your fingertips as Psa 145:2 puts it when it says… “Everyday will I bless thee”

Something so simple but so profound is at your fingertips when you live in Psa 61:8… “I will perform my vows or my responsibilities daily”

Psa 119:164 Seven times a day I will praise Thee because of your righteous judgments.

1Co 3:13 each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work.

For the believer who is not involved with apostasy it says in Psa 1:2 “But his delight [the adult believer] is in the Law of the Lord, and in
His law he meditates day and night.”

Even through simple prayer we read in Isa 8:9 “My Lord, I have called daily upon you.”

The apostle Paul ceased not to warn the early church night and day in Acts 20:31 “Therefore be on the alert, remembering that night and day for a period of three years I did not cease to admonish each one with tears. Paul tells us in 2Co 4:16 that our inward man the new creature is renewed day by day, 2Co 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.
cts And day by day continuing with one mind in the temple,

In ACT 5:42 they ceased not to preach and teach about TLJC daily in the temple, Acts 5:42 And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they kept right on teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ.

In 2Ch 8:14, The Levitical priests would praise and minister daily.

In 2Ch 31:16, They would enter the house of the Lord for their daily obligations.

In Ezra 3:4, they offered burnt offerings daily, according to the ordinance, as each day required.

Apostasy in a client nation is always a cancer.

They were taking ground from the kingdom of darkness and they were boldly speaking the truth and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.

They were a great threat, so they had to be silenced.

That we are bold and may be uneducated and untrained, but others realize that we have been with Jesus.”

That plan is alive and well today.
Why?

Because Peter and John were unafraid.

2Ti 3:12 And indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
