The Two Natures Within - Pastor David

Image
.


When the sinner becomes a Christian, he receives a new nature from God; He or she is now a NEW direct creation of God, he becomes a partaker of the Divine nature. "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name" John 1:12.Because the Christian does not lose his old sinful nature, he is soon conscious of warfare within.

"For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary one to the other; so that ye may not do the things that ye would." Galatians 5:17. Christians have tried all kinds of religious schemes and joined all kinds of fanatical movements to get rid of their sinful natures. Many of them have deceived themselves, but no one else, into believing that they have been successful. There are many who claim for themselves that they have reached, through a second work of grace, the state of sinless perfection. Such a doctrine and position is not onl…

This Bible Study Chart illustrates that, with the rejection of Israel of The LORD Jesus Christ and His Kingdom, the message of the twelve Apostles went from the particular to the general.

While LATER, with the Apostle Paul, (the chief of sinners saved by Grace), his message, (received by direct revelation from the Glorified Risen Christ), went from the general to the particular again, climaxed by the glorious Truth about Christ and His Body, The Mystery.

Thus the TRANSITION lies BETWEEN and explains the generalities in the Book of Acts which have puzzled so many!

In Ephesians 1:13 the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and BELIEVING the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation. Therefore, here, now, is declared unto you the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation: "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that h…

This Bible Study Chart illustrates how the so-called Great Commission was PRECEDED by a commission almost as great and then followed by the Greatest of ALL Commissions...THAT given by the Glorified LORD Jesus Christ to Paul, the Apostle of the Gentiles, and to us.

Actually, while there is much talk about...obeying the so-called Great Commission...NO ONE really obeys it today, for God has made this impossible.

We can and should, however, obey the Great Commission given to the Apostle Paul and us by Christ, in Heaven. 2 Cor. 5:14-21, Ephesians 3:1-11

Harmony of Messages Proclaimed by God's Servants - Bible Study Illustration Chart 5 - Pastor David

*******
This Bible Study chart illustrates the philosophical harmony of the messages proclaimed by God's servants through the centuries.
For example, the Gospel of the Kingdom, proclaimed by our LORD and the twelve, NATURALLY takes us back to David and the great covenant of the Messianic Kingdom made with him. Similarly, the Gospel of the Circumcision, proclaimed later at Pentecost, NATURALLY takes us back to Abraham and the covenant of circumcision, guaranteeing the blessing of the Gentiles through the seed of Abraham, NOT Abram.
Study the rest for yourself until you get to the most blessed message of all, The Mystery. The Mystery, proclaimed by the Apostle Paul and based, NOT on covenants, or prophecies, but based on God's own purpose and Grace given us in Christ Jesus BEFORE the world began. 2 Timothy 1:9.

DISPENSATIONS in The BIBLE: Bible Study Illustration Chart 4 - Pastor David

Image

During the last few years Christians have been warned time and again against Dispensationalism, Ultradispensationalism, Hyperdispensationalism, and Extreme Dispensationalism. Some ignorant, spiritual leaders have warned their followers against any and all Dispensationalism. Now, the word "Dispensation" is used in Ephesians 1:10, Ephesians 3:2-3, Ephesians 3:9, Colossians 1:24-26, and 1 Corinthians 9:17. The Greek word is "OIKONOMIA" . . . "Oiko" means House . . . and "Nomia" means Law. IT is also from where we get our English word Economy. This word "OIKONOMIA" is translated "Stewardship" in Luke 16:2-4. You see the word has the meaning of "The ADMINISTRATION of a HOUSE or HOUSE HOLD. I am sure you have heard of...The President's ADMINISTRATION.

In Ephesians 4:12 we read that God is EDIFYING THE BODY OF CHRIST. OK, now, "EDIFY" in the Greek is "OIKODOMEO". "OIKO" means House, and, &quo…

*******
This Bible Study Rules Chart illustrates that Salvation was to have gone...and WILL some day go...to the Gentiles THROUGH Israel, with The LORD Jesus Christ as King on Earth.

Also, this Bible Study chart shows how, for the present Dispensation of Grace, Salvation has gone to the Gentiles APART from Israel, ENTIRELY on the basis of the meritorious death of the LORD Jesus Christ.

This Bible Study chart explains the difference between, the Gospel of the Kingdom and the Gospel of the Grace of God...between PROPHECY and The MYSTERY...and between The Kingdom of Heaven and The Body of Christ.
