JUDGING THE AFFAIRS OF THIS LIFE RIGHTEOUSLY AS A SON

1Co 6:2  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 1Co 6:3  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 1Co 6:4  If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 1Co 6:5  I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?   Most of our adult lives consist of our using, or not using our ‘better judgment’ concerning the affairs of this life, and facing the consequences that may come, and whether good or bad; we become responsible for our decisions based upon this world’s...

THE LORD’S BATTLE WITH ISRAEL’S ENEMIES

  Exo 17:7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?   Exo 17:8 Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim.   Exo 17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.   Exo 17:10 So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill.   Exo 17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.   Once God had victoriously brought Israel out of Egypt by single-handedly...

REVELATIONS 12: SEVEN HEADS, TEN HORNS, AND SEVEN CROWNS

Rev 12:1  And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: Rev 12:2  And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Rev 12:3  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. Rev 12:4  And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. Rev 12:5  And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. Rev...

KNOWING GOD AS “THE GOD OF ALL COMFORT”

2Co 1:3  Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 2Co 1:4  Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.   The doctrine found within 2Corinthians may seem puzzling at the outset of the first  chapter of 2Corinthians to some who are experiencing “trouble,” and “tribulation” in their lives, and need the “comfort,” and “salvation” from this type of sufferings, but as God our Father has designed; once we progress from the beginning of 2Corinthians chapter 1 through the end of chapter 13, we will be well equipped to fully understand and appreciate, and find the salvation and comfort in...

THE REPROVING DOCTRINE TO GODLY SORROW

2Co 7:8  For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season. 2Co 7:9  Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. 2Co 7:10  For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.   One of the most important aspect of the son being “transformed by the renewing” of his mind is the son coming to the realization that his conduct as a son “in Christ” is not becoming of who God has made him to be “in Christ.” And it is the reproving doctrine found at the outset of...

SONSHIP PRAYER: “BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING”

  Php 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.   Php 4:7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.   In order for us to fully understand, appreciate, and operate upon such issues as Philippians 4:5–6; Ephesians 3:20; and I Thessalonians 5:18; it is necessary that we first of all have operating within us some specific fundamental and foundational doctrines. For though, for example, Philippians 4:5–6 deals with the issue of prayer, it does not deal with prayer on a foundational level. The Philippian saints were not new believers, nor “babes in Christ,” nor carnal saints, nor anything else...

THE LORD’S TABLE AND THE TABLE OF DEVILS

1Co 10:20  But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 1Co 10:21  Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.   The main aspect of understanding and appreciating our sanctified position in Christ comes from our understanding of our Father’s will for us, and the plan that Satan has to hinder our sanctified living in Christ from bringing forth “fruit” as it ought. And as we come to understand the fact that just as our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has a Table and a Cup, we also can plainly see that there are “devils” that also have a table and cup that many...

SEARCHING FOR THE WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE FATHER

Pro 2:1  My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; Pro 2:2  So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Pro 2:3  Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; Pro 2:4  If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Pro 2:5  Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. Pro 2:6  For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.   As “sons” in Christ we have an expectation of the Father to grow up into a son who has been “conformed to the image of His Son,” and this unique opportunity that we have to be educated by the Father is special indeed. When we trusted in the...

PROBLEMS? DECISIONS? DO YOU “PUT IT IN GOD’S HANDS?”

2Th 1:2  Grace unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2Th 1:3  We are bound to thank God always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth; 2Th 1:4  So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 2Th 1:5  Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:   We have all heard the sayings “I’m going to put it in God’s hands,” or “I’m going to let God handle it,” and this seems to be what is said by most when there is a problem, suffering, or an important...
