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 or participating in a Communion Service, 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); 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 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, if that doesn’t work then look them up in your Bible) when the Pastor asks everyone to turn to that passage in their bibles.


Sermon: God the Holy Spirit inspired those who desired
to follow the Lord – no matter what the price would be.


What is needed to be understood is the place that we should have discovered the importance and the difference between the two.

God will give you what you truly desire if you are willing to study and apply His Word to the plan of God for your life.

The “Life of God” that is needed concerns the fact that you and I were not given soul-life until we were considered to be born physically alive and spiritually dead.

Under this principle, our Lord said; “I will give you the proper information that you will need to be able to make the right decisions.

I do not believe that a fetus is a person until, first of all, the fetus is given biological life and does not become a person until the fetus is brought forth.

“but in the end, we were told that “all of those things will work together for good for those who truly love God.”

Another way to put this is found by the questions we should all have because, as our Lord taught His disciples, God’s word or God’s plan goes on with or without us.

What a great time it is to be able to study the ministry of our Lord where we can spend some valuable time on “Who and What” our Lord is” and “What our Lord did or had done” when He was brought forth from the womb all the way to the tomb.

I have quoted many times the phrase — “From the womb to the tomb.”

Here is another important example of the grace of God and the love and mercy of our Lord, all were working together for good for the sake of those who truly love each other by caring for the Lord or helping others.

I also found another manifestation of this principle in a very different way as the Lord was at work causing us to hear, to listen, or even, to obey.

Although we have found certain manifestations of the fruit that is used, it is said to be based upon the fact that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ quoted what the angel Gabriel announced.

These “two winner angels” are used during the Christmas season because of their role as an angel who became a “winner angel” or “as an angel who performs what their role is” and “what their names actually reveal.

I could give you a lot of information which reveals the names of certain angels who had a special calling even after they fell.

Once again, we see Satan and his kingdom of darkness causing negativity, sowing discord, attacking the grace of God, attacking the love of God, the forgiveness of God, etc. = all of this was reported to millions and millions of rebellious angels.

Isa 15:23 “For rebellion is as the sin of divination (or witchcraft), And insubordination is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the
Lord, He has also rejected you from being king.”

1Co 6:3 we are told this: Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, matters of this life?

This verse explains that our life [that is the zoe life] will judge angels.

In 1Pe 1:12 we read that “Angels are said to desire to learn and look into the wisdom that the royal family of God possesses.

1Pe 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven things into which angels long to look.

1Pe 1:12, the apostle Peter said what it was that caused these angels to give attention to them or that which He had inspired mankind to put down in written form.

It is found, especially in the written word that God the Holy Spirit inspired those who desired to follow the Lord — no matter what the price would be.

They are all under the Doctrine of Divine Inspiration as a dispensation is a period of time in human history expressed in terms of divine revelation.

It is “grow in the grace of God and then to grow in the knowledge of God.

2Pe 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him {be} the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

It is not grow by means of love but it is to grow by means of knowledge;

It is not grow by means of Immutability because only God can remain as He desires, we cannot.

It is not grow by means of Omnipotence because only God “can be” “all powerful.”

It is not grow by means of Omniscience because only God can possess perfect knowledge, we cannot.

It is not grow by means of Omnipresence because only God can be everywhere or anywhere if He desires.

It is not grow by means of Righteousness because only God is perfectly righteous.

It is not grow by means of Eternal life because eternal life was a gift from God, a gift that only God can give to you.

It is not “grow by means of the Sovereignty of God” because the sovereignty of God is that which He uses to control the human race with the historical principles that keep the human race from self-destruction or to protect the human race from evil.

Remember the principle of God’s plan is not the same for every dispensation. The plan of God for our life is quite different in each dispensation.

The most difficult and subtle plan for the believer in this Church-age is to learn about the predesigned plan of God for the Church-age, which is also identified and experienced as one who has also fulfilled their personal sense of destiny.

It is also important to know that we know and understand that all the “Old Testament” believers were under a different plan which I refer to from time to time as the ritual plan of God.

We all need to learn and grow “by means of grace” or “even by means of knowledge;” as taught by the apostle in 2Pe 3:18 when our Lord Jesus Christ was under the incarnation plan of God.

One of the definitions of the Word of God is that “This doctrine keeps on giving to you and me right away.

You are to keep on preaching and teaching the way you like, which falls under the principle that “Grace must come before knowledge” or else “The Divine Authority”

We are a dispensation that is defined traditionally as a period of time during which a particular revelation of God’s mind and God’s will is operative.

This is when “God the Holy Spirit inspired many of the Lord’s people to be followers of Christ just like some of you were or some of those individuals who are popular in this plan of God.

It is God the Holy Spirit during which time man is tested as to his obedience to that specific manifestation of God’s will, purpose, and plan.

The believer’s orientation to both time and to Human History is vitally necessary for understanding God’s plan, God’s purpose, for all of us at some specific time.

Outside of the church which is called “The royal family” it is God’s means of teaching angels “the manifold wisdom of God.”

There are a few of these believers who can guide us or lead us to our place of refuge, which is really brought out in the personal love chapters found in the pages of scripture.

We all can learn and apply to the spiritual life that we should all have because of that which God the Holy Spirit has put within us.

There are many verses that teach us = Grace first and then it is God the Holy Spirit is here to be “right” before our Lord’s ministry which is called the Second Coming or the Second Advent.

It is here that “the Second Advent or the Second Coming” is said to be that which the Holy Spirit uses and in Luk 1:35.

Even up to the fetus, that the coming of the Lord was not called a person until the day of our Lord’s birth.

It is that which reveals to us that a fetus was inside of Mary and that is why the fetus is called a “Holy Offspring” or a “Holy Thing” but, at this moment, there is just the recognition of the angels who either chose or rejected the plan of God for the human race.

Gabriel is one of the “winner angels” who is described as an angel whose job it was to proclaim the Good News.

Notice in verse 35 in the NAS Bible we read that the fetus is called a holy offspring.

In the King James Bible, the fetus is called a “holy thing.”

The word that is used to describe the fetus in Mary = the Greek adjective hagios which says not in the masculine or not in the feminine which would be translated “he” [in the masculine] or “she” [in the feminine].

It is a Greek adjective that is in the Neuter and that is why the NAS Bible translation or the KJ’s translation calls it a “holy offspring” or a “holy thing” respectively.

Rom 5:12 Therefore, just as through one man [Adam] sin or the [OSN = old sin nature] entered into the world, and death [spiritual death] which resulted in sin or the old sin nature, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned Aorist tense which is the fact that “all sinned when Adam sinned.

This is why we have all been born in sin. There is no soul life in the blastocyst, the embryo or the fetus.

This is why as the King James Bible says that there is biological life in the womb or in the uterus, but no soul life as of yet.

It is when the fetus emerges that God creates soul life and imputes it to biological life.

Biological life is formed in the womb and is an extension of the mother’s physical life.

Here is a very important principle that took place after the biological life and the sin nature began at conception; whereas soul life begins at birth.

This accounts for reflex motility or movement but no soul life.

No one has true soul life until it is imputed.

Human life begins when the fetus emerges from the womb and God gives to that fetus, “neshamah” = “the spark of life,” not developed in the womb, but is given by God at birth.

Here is another important principle concerning when life begins because God cannot impute life without that life having a place to go.

In other words, God does not impute neshamah, the breath of life, to a blade of grass or to a stone.

God cannot impute life without that life having a place to go.

And the home or the direction of human life is always imputed to the human soul.

As I stated so far, it is the home for physical life that is your life that is found in the soul.

There is also biological life in the womb or in the uterus, but no soul life.

It is when the fetus emerges, that God creates soul life and imputes it to biological life.

Your physical body was formed before life was given to your soul….just like it was in the first Adam and the Last Adam.

There are only two Adam’s that we have to deal with, the First Adam or the Last Adam.

“All things are put in subjection,” it is evident that He is excepted who put all things in subjection to Him.

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 known unconfessed 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, that He is the Son of God, the promised Messiah, 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 simply exercise faith alone in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life; when you do, you will instantly receive 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:


Study to show yourself approved to God!

The Tree of Life is a weekly teaching summary:
God’s Word is taught Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday


STUDY TITLE:


Heaven. Part 4


Isa 7:14, “Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.”

Isa 9:6, “For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”

The ultimate reward or decoration for us in Heaven will be the Order of the Morning Star. This decoration is taken from and named after our Lord’s third royal patent or title which is, “the King of kings, Lord of lords, the bright Morning Star;” (Rev 22:16, 2Pe 1:19).

It’s important to note that the Order of the Morning Star is given to winner believers as the highest of all decorations in escrow blessings given by God. The interesting thing is that the Order of the Morning Star and the attainment of the different crowns allows us to enjoy the privileges that accompany eating of the Tree of Life. The winner believer can eat from the Tree of Life in the Paradise of God, located in the New Jerusalem. By the way the paradise, paradeisos according to the Theological word study of both the Old and New Testament is defined as a gazebo or a place of relaxation and entertainment.

So, because this gazebo is located in Heaven it will be the quintessence of rest and relaxation for the winner believer who will be rewarded by God in a special way. Therefore, let’s look at the passages and the principles of blessings that come from being able to eat of the fantastic blessings that accompany the Tree of Life. First of all, the Tree of Life is associated with perfect life and environment in the Garden of Eden as well as the perpetuation of a right relationship with God, Gen 2:9; Gen 3:22. For example in Gen 2:8-9, and the Lord God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there he placed the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

When man sinned and was driven out of the garden and he was cut off from the Tree of Life, Gen 3:24.

In Gen 3:22-24, Then the Lord God said, “behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he stretch out his hand, and take also from the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever” Therefore the Lord God sent him out from the Garden of Eden, to cultivate the ground from which he was taken. So, he drove the man out; and at the east of the Garden of Eden he stationed the cherubim, and the flaming sword which turned every direction, to guard the way to the Tree of Life.

The literal Tree of Life is not seen again by man until the eternal state, Rev 2:7; Rev 22:2, 14. It’s interesting that the importance and prominence of the Tree of Life is that the human history began with the Tree of life in Gen 2 and ends with the Tree of life in Rev 22.

Rev 2:7, ‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the spirit says to the churches. to him who overcomes [nikao- the winner], I will grant to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the paradise of God.

Again, the word paradise, paradesos, according to the Theological word study of both the Old and New Testament is defined as a gazebo of relaxation and entertainment. Then in Rev 22:14, blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter by the gates into the city.

Now the interesting thing is that in this life there is only one Tree of Life for mankind and it is related to the word of God or Bible doctrine, Prov 3:18, She [doctrine] is a Tree of Life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who hold her fast. And positive volition is also related to the Tree of Life in Prov 13:12, Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but desire fulfilled [positive volition] is a Tree of Life.

This is why the Tree of Life will be located forever in the New Jerusalem, Rev 22:2. It will be a place where the word of God is glorified and where desire is totally fulfilled. Also notice that eternal happiness is associated with the Tree of Life, in Rev 22:14 when it says not blessed but happy are those who wash their robes [use rebound in this life consistently], that they may have the right to the Tree of Life, and may enter by the gates into the city.

Now, in Gen 2:9, we noted that there are four categories of trees in the Garden of Eden.

First of all, in Gen 2:9 we read and out of the ground the Lord God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the Tree of Life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The first category is said to be every tree being desirable to the sight is the first category which is designed for the prosperity of the soul. All happiness must be related to the soul, to what you think. Happiness is not a set of circumstances. If you have capacity from doctrine in the soul, then you can express that happiness regardless of your circumstances. So, category one was designed for man’s pleasure of soul and for his capacity for happiness.

The second category of trees was the category called “good for food.” Man, also had physical happiness or happiness of his body. Food and beverages were designed to express happiness, to stimulate, to perpetuate health. In fact, notice what God said to the Jews who had prospered because of their PVTD [positive volition towards doctrine] in Deut 14:22-27, “You shall surely tithe all the produce from what you sow, which comes out of the field every year. And you shall eat in the presence of the Lord your God, at the place where He chooses to establish His name, the tithe of your grain, your new wine, your oil, and the first born of your herd and your flock, in order that you may learn to fear the Lord your God always. And if the distance is so great for you that you are not able to bring the tithe, since the place where the Lord your God chooses to set His name is too far away from you when the Lord your God blesses you, then you shall exchange it for money, and bind the money in your hand and go to the place which the Lord your God chooses. And you may spend the money for whatever your heart desires, for oxen, or sheep, or wine, or strong drink, or whatever your heart desires; and there you shall eat in the presence of the Lord your God and rejoice, you and your household. Also, you shall not neglect the Levite who is in your town, for he has no portion or inheritance among you.”

3Jo 1:2, Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.

The third category: The Tree of Life. The Tree of Life was both the capacity for perfect happiness and blessing, and total appreciation of God’s grace in the spiritual realm. The Tree of Life was and is related to the total happiness of man when he was first created. Today, the closest you can come to the Tree of Life is reaching spiritual maturity. People have asked what would have happened if man had eaten from the Tree of Life after he had sinned against God? If man, in spiritual death, had eaten from the Tree of Life, he would have lived forever in his present state of sinful immortality, in the status of spiritual death, and would eventually be condemned with the entire human race totally to the lake of fire. You cannot have an old sin nature and eat of this particular Tree of Life. That’s why the Lord said in Gen 3:22, “behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil; and now, lest he stretch out his hand, and take also from the Tree of Life, and eat, and live forever”

The point is that you cannot have God’s perfect happiness and live in spiritual death and sin. So, the present Tree of Life is provided by God’s grace associated with man’s positive volition, which was to be expressed in his free will toward the plan of God. However, a new tree had to be selected in order for happiness to exist. And that new tree is found in 1Pe 2:24 and he himself bore our sins in his body on the tree. By expelling man from the garden, man could now choose to eat from the tree of the Cross. However, remember that only winners in the Christian life have the privilege of eating continually and habitually from the Tree of Life in the garden of God in eternity.

Rev 2:7, “To the winner, I will give to him the privilege of eating from the Tree of Life which is in the paradise of God.”

Category four is the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. God in His grace has provided for us our own Garden of Eden which I call the PPOG [predesigned plan of God], a perfect spiritual environment in this life. In this life, we can only be happy in the perfect environment of the PPOG [predesigned plan of God]. So, after the fall, the purpose for the creation of man could only be perpetuated by cutting man off from the Tree of Life and providing a new Tree of Life: the Cross. By remaining in the Garden in spiritual death, man would have been immortal with unhappiness. Therefore, God cut man off from the Tree of Life. And this was another manifestation that justice has to come before love.

Judgment had to come because condemnation must precede salvation. So, man was originally designed for perfect happiness. Perfect happiness excludes boredom. Man sins many times because he becomes bored and familiar with it all. When we try to relieve boredom with excitement, we destroy the whole principle of God’s perfect happiness. For you can’t have God’s perfect happiness without capacity.

So, the Tree of Life perpetuates happiness and prosperity in both the human soul and body in perfect environment. Now, the first three categories are designed for man in innocence, and for the believer in resurrection body.

1. Every tree being desirable to the sight,
2. Those good for food,
3. The Tree of Life

Man did not need to have the knowledge of good and evil. Good represented the plan of God, evil represented the plan of Satan. We did not need to know the plan of God and the plan of Satan until we fell. We would not have known evil, sin, legalism, self-righteousness, religion, and the PPOG, if we had not fell or eaten from the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil. These are only an issue to man in the state of spiritual death as a sinner.

In the garden, neither good nor evil were an issue because of the first three categories of trees. In innocence man didn’t have to understand good and evil to have a relationship with God. Only in sinfulness and spiritual death must man understand the issue of good versus evil. And therefore, the Tree of Life for the believer today is Bible doctrine or PVTD [positive volition towards doctrine].

Prov 3:13-18, How blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding. For its profit is better than the profit of silver, and its gain than fine gold. She [wisdom] is more precious than jewels; and nothing you desire compares with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a Tree of Life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who hold her fast.

Knowledge of Bible doctrine is the only Tree of Life available to the believer after salvation. And so, learning doctrine in time is as close as we can get to the happiness of the Tree of Life. And for the believer who recovers and doesn’t quit no matter what, that believer will have fantastic blessings and rewards in heaven based upon the privilege of eating from the Tree of Life.

Now, how do you discover the Tree of Life in time?

Prov 3:13, How blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.

The word blessed is the word ashreey meaning happinesses. Wisdom is chokmah which is the Old Testament word for epignosis doctrine or metabolized doctrine.

Prov 3:14, For its profit [wisdom or metabolized doctrine] is better than the profit of silver, and its gain [is better] than fine gold.

You cannot even compare riches with wisdom for it is wisdom which gives you a capacity for life not riches.

Prov 3:15-16, She [wisdom] is more precious than jewels; and nothing you desire compares with her [wisdom or metabolized doctrine]. Long life is in her right hand; [the right hand represents the hand of power]; in her left hand [the secondary hand] are riches and honor.

This simply means that capacity for life must precede riches and honor.

Prov 3:17, Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.

The word pleasant is the Hebrew word no`am meaning gracious. Peace is shalowm meaning prosperity.

Prov 3:18 she [chokmah, wisdom, metabolized doctrine] is a tree of life to those who take hold of [to seize, to be constant, to continue, to be established, to retain] her, and happy are all who hold her fast who obtain, follow close, maintain, retain, support, or to hold strongly with her.

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 or participating in a Communion Service, so take a moment to name, cite or acknowledge your sins privately directly to God the Father.

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); 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 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:

Sermon



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, if that doesn’t work then look them up in your Bible) when the Pastor asks everyone to turn to that passage in their bibles.


Sermon: There’s a tremendous difference between having
gnosis (knowledge) and epignosis knowledge (wisdom).


“You and I are being plunged into a period of time about which the Bible says more about than it does about any other period of time including the Gospel Period.”

If we focus in on the times we are living in that all you and I have to do is to present our need to the Lord and then focus in on the plan of God.

“The Final Divine First-born Son” — our Lord and Savior has as your Guidance or Teacher so that your life is left for you to live in Sheol (O.T.) – Heaven (N.T.)

We have been called to live on the times in which God provides for us well as preparing to live the spiritual life that the Lord has also been challenging us to live in.

Important Doctrines = God uses concerning the plan of God is “The Doctrine of Vindication” which helps us and vindicates us as a part of the Unique message.

“The Doctrine of Vindication” — “The Doctrine of Children” which, in reality, most of the Proverbs is translated “The Doctrine of the Elite Believer.”

The “Elite Believer” can do almost anything that the evil believer works hard at doing and also, we have been studying the fact that a believer can do “Whatever” God’s Word cherishes.

Repetition = safe and secure as Paul anticipated that it would be safe and secure to repeat certain doctrinal principles that God the Holy Spirit wants us to repeat.

Phil 3:1 Finally, my brethren, keep on having inner happiness in the Lord. On the one hand, to be writing the same doctrines to you is not troublesome to me, while on the other hand, it is a safeguard or a basis of security for you.

Message = Phil 3:1 And that’s about it, friends. Be glad in God! I don’t mind repeating what I have written in earlier letters, and I hope you don’t mind hearing it again. Better safe than sorry so here goes.

Because you have to see and study what the Bible has to say in regard to the Divine Timing of God and observing what our Lord says about time!


Before we go on with the difference between gnosis (knowledge) or epignosis (wisdom) — we need to be sure of the fact that we are ready and prepared.

You should understand that there’s a tremendous difference between having gnosis (knowledge) and epignosis knowledge (wisdom).

1. The will of God for mankind is two fold.
For the unbeliever: Salvation.
For the believer: Metabolized doctrine.

1Ti 2:3, This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the epignosis knowledge of the truth.

Tit 1:1 that he was Paul, a bond servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of those chosen of God and the [epignosis] knowledge of the truth which is according to living the spiritual life,

Eph 4:13 — until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the epignosis knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fulness of Christ.

2. The cosmic believer fails to metabolize doctrine, 2Ti 3:2 7.

They end up under divine discipline and will eventually die the sin unto death says the word of God in Eph 6:2-3.

The reason why the carnal believer does not metabolize doctrine is simply because the power of the Holy Spirit does not function in the cosmic system.

They are always learning academic subjects and doctrine, but it is all gnosis and only academic. They are never able to come to epignosis doctrine.

3. Only metabolized doctrine can be useful for problem solving, Eph 1:17.

Eph 1:17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the epignosis knowledge of Him.

This is God the Holy Spirit taking epignosis doctrine and giving you the ability to handle your problems.

Whether in adversity or prosperity, you must solve your problems from the base of inner happiness from epignosis doctrine.

4. Philem 6 teaches that all genuine fellowship with believers is based on metabolized doctrine and virtue.

Phm 1:6 {and I pray} that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the epignosis knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ’s sake.

5. Only metabolized doctrine can fulfill the mandate of virtue first in the PPOG, Phil 1:9.

Phil 1:9 In fact, I pray this, that your virtue-love may excel to the maximum still more and more by means of epignosis knowledge metabolized doctrine resulting in all spiritual discernment,

2Pe 1:8 for if these {qualities} are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge epignosis knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

6. Consequently, only metabolized doctrine can fulfill the PPOG [predesigned plan of God], Col 1:9-10.

7. Only metabolized doctrine can provide blessing under the PPOG.

If you have only gnosis doctrine, there is no basis for blessing; (2Pe 1:3-4.)

2Pe 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you by means of the epignosis knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord;

2Pe 1:3 seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the epignosis knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.

2Pe 3:17 you therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the error of unprincipled men, you fall from your own steadfastness,

2Pe 3:18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him {be} the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

8. You can have a zeal to know God but if you do not have metabolized doctrine it is useless.

Rom 10:2 For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge.

9. True wealth and prosperity comes from epignosis doctrine, Col 2:2.

10. The new man can only be renewed and energized through metabolized doctrine.

He said to Peter who was sincere but sincerely wrong in his assessment of the spiritual life.

Matt 16:23 But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.”

Psa 119:63 I am a companion of all those who respect Thee, and of those who keep Your doctrines.

Psa 101:6, My eyes shall be upon the “faithful” of the land, that they may dwell with me; he who walks in integrity is the one who will minister to me.

Psa 101:7, on the other hand, he who practices deceit shall not dwell within my house; he who speaks falsehood shall not maintain his position before me.

And in 2Sa 1:26, we are told what, David says concerning Jonathan, You have been very pleasant to me. Your love to me was more wonderful than the love of women.

1Sa 20:23 “As for the agreement of which you and I have spoken, behold, the Lord is between you and me forever.”
