A GODLY RESPONSE TO SICKNESS AND DEATH

  Rom 8:22  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. Rom 8:23  And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Rom 8:24  For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? Rom 8:25  But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Rom 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Rom 8:27  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of...

TO KNOW THE LOVE OF CHRIST

Eph 3:17  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, Eph 3:18  May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; Eph 3:19  And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.   God our Father has fully equipped us as “sons” with the doctrine of His will and His love toward all mankind, and we being members of the “body of Christ” are given the progressive edifying stages in our epistles. Therefore by the time we reach the pages of Ephesians we are introduced to the doctrine of God the Father’s overall plan for both the earth and the heavenly places in “ages to come.” Furthermore we also come across the Father’s...

WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE WILL OF GOD

Eph 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Eph 1:8  Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Eph 1:9  Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:     Since the beginning of time man has sought after wisdom and knowledge; whether the wisdom and knowledge of this world, or wisdom or knowledge into the will of God. However as wisdom and knowledge are thought to have the same meaning, this is not the case at all. Possessing knowledge is the issue of gaining information about an unknown situation, issue, subject, or anything not understood by the individual prior to gaining this new-found insight....

SATAN’S ATTACK ON THE SAINT’S SONSHIP GROWTH

Pro 1:5  A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: Pro 1:6  To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. Pro 1:7  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Pro 1:8  My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Pro 1:9  For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. Pro 1:10  My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not.     As we progress through our sonship lives we come across many challenges and many ‘enticements’ that will come our way, and these things can work to ‘stall’ or ‘sidetrack’ our advancing on in the...

THE WAR IN HEAVEN AND OUR HEAVENLY VOCATION

Col 1:12  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Col 1:13  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: Col 1:14  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Col 1:15  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Col 1:18  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the...

UNDERSTANDING ROMANS 12 THROUGH 16

Rom 12:1  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Rom 12:2  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Rom 12:3  For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.     The doctrine found within Romans chapters 12 through 16 is essential for the son’s growth in ‘getting off on the right foot’ in his sonship education. The apostle Paul as our father...
