In spite of what happens, the word of God has never failed and will never fail.

Friday, May 23, 2008

 

By calling out a Royal Family, the Church, that God was not going to keep His word and that He was not going to fulfill His promises to the Jews, as a nation, as well as individuals.

God always keeps His word. Because Jesus Christ, who is God, Rom 9:5, controls history.

If God does not keep His word, as the majority of the Jews alleged, then why live as though He does?

Jesus Christ controls history in spite of what you and I like or think, in spite of what’s happening around you personally, nationally, internationally, and historically.

You have to interpret history as a spiritual believer and begin to note the biblical interpretation of history and how you recognize and understand the historical trends of the time in which you are living.

1. Even though history is the record of man’s thoughts, decisions, actions and motivations, it is Jesus Christ who controls history.
2. This is the first dispensation in which Jesus Christ controls history as a man, the God-man, from His Hypostatic Union.

3. In Human history, there are two sources of judgment: the sovereign decisions of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the erroneous decisions of mankind as they follow Satan and the kingdom of darkness in their sin of independence from God.
4. People individually and collectively are the products of their own decisions.
Decisions create environment, not environment decisions.

So-called historical disasters are not tragedies since individuals, nations, and empires are the products of their own self-determination.

5. The pattern of historical disaster begins with economic depression, moves to moral and immoral degeneracy, and ends in military disaster.
6. God selects the most evil nation to administer the fifth cycle of discipline to a degenerate client nation.
Evil one destroys evil two.
7. Individual subjectivity destroys national objectivity.

Arrogant people or arrogant nations never see their own inconsistencies, only the inconsistencies of others.
Jealous people and envious nations never see their own sins and production of evil, only the sins and evil of others.

Holding to a superficial form of the spiritual life is ritual without reality, being exposed to doctrine on a limited basis and thinking that is all you need.

There are two powers in the spiritual life which are denied: the filling of the Holy Spirit and the power of the word of God.

You are to avoid such people as these because these people can have a great influence on your life.

Gunaikaria - does not just mean silly women but also males who are emotional in their souls.
They derive their strength from their arrogance, their stubbornness, their concepts of morality, but they have no problem solving devices.

This is gnosis without epignosis, or knowledge but not wisdom.
They have no metabolized doctrine.

7. Individual subjectivity destroys national objectivity.
8. This is why Christ taught the doctrine of perpetual warfare until He returns.

Bringing together all these principles in his mind and “correctly interpreting contemporary history according to the prophecies of the Bible” gives the believer has a new lease on life and a positive attitude even toward his failures of the past.

Once again, the grace, patience, longsuffering, and compassion of God is revealed by giving His children another chance.

Mat 18:21 “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”

Mat 18:22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.”

Luk 17:3 “Be on your guard! If your brother sins, rebuke him; and if he repents, forgive him. And if he sins against you seven times a day, and returns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ forgive him.”

Hos 14:4 I will heal their apostasy, I will love them freely, For My anger has turned away from them.

You have been forgiven and released from any of your sins and your failures and you can have an impact on history in some way.

In the biblical interpretation of history, it is normal to relate yourself to what is going on in history, especially in light of the fact that you believe and understand that Jesus Christ controls history, as a perfectly normal function.

Rom 9:6 However, this is not to imply as though the word of God has failed.

Mockers are going to have a heyday reducing everything to the level of their puny little feelings and their over-rated so-called I.Q.

The word of God which has never failed says,
1Co 1:19 “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.”

1Co 1:20-21, Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

They conveniently forget that long ago all the galaxies and this very planet were brought into existence by God’s word.

The most valuable thing is usually the thing that is the oldest, and the oldest thing is in the form of thought and that thought is Bible the word of God.
