 “About Grace”

Appropriately, the free unmerited love and favor of God, the spring and source of

all the benefits men receive from him. And if by grace then it is no more of works.

Romans 11:5

A principle is simply, in a general sense: “The cause, source or origin from which a thing proceeds.”

Some principles of the doctrine of God, are mentioned in Deuteronomy 32:2&4 when He says: “v2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the mall rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: v4 He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, Just and right is He.”

We learn the doctrine of God by reading Him in the nature He created; by reading Him in His Holy Word in Spirit and prayer; by hearing Him through the miracle of true preaching; by hearing His voice from our inner man. They all declare, He worketh all things after the counsel of His own will for:

God is the Rock, whose work is perfect.
God is the one whose ways are judgment.
God is truth; God is just and right, and without iniquity.

"Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:2)

As we look at this verse this morning there is only one thought that I want to bring out and that is, "For the joy that was set before him." We can not say that Christ enjoyed being nailed to the tree of the cross, nor can we say that he enjoyed the suffering that he endured at the hands of wicked men, nor from the hand of God, but we can say that he endured it for the joy that was set before him. Christ was looking to the end of his sufferings at a bought and paid for people. A redeemed and justified people that would be fit to inherit the kingdom prepared for them before the foundation of the world. After his work was finished he set down, it was finished.

POINTS TO PONDER  By Elder Hulan F. Bass 

Ecc. 7:20 – The wise man Solomon wrote this text with deep understanding.  “For there is not  a JUST man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth now.”  There are NO exceptions,  but ONE – Jesus Christ – Heb. 7:14-15.  Even  every born-again Regenerated Child of God, as an elect Inwardly, still sins because they  still carry around the OUTWARD fallen and corrupt nature of Adam, they still sin.  This  fact is still intact with so-called honorable  persons, as they try to convince you of some “oddity” rather than the truth, to “provoke belief” in their point of view.'


 

“About trust”

• It's hard to believe what a man says, if you can't trust what he will do.

• It is hard to trust what you know, if you don't know for sure what you trust.

• Trust is predictability. God is the only one who can really be trusted.

• I use to trust myself, until I really got to know me.

• When somebody says trust me, they mean don't think.
 

 

About Hospitality and Humility

 

There is a great difference between these entities, as the KJT clearly shows this distinction. For Literal Hospitality we find in Gen. 18:4; 19:2; 24:32; 43:24. We also find in the Ceremonial Laws such as in Exodus 30:19, 21; 40:30-31: Judges 19:21; 1st Sam. 25:41 Literal Humility, then also symbolic righteous rewards and clean the wife.

More symbols in Psalms 58:10 as Righteous Rewards; Songs of Sol. 5:3 that of vice-versa ref. Husbands fidelity to his Wife/Bride. Now in the New Testament. Matt.10:14 examples in the Apostles & in Mark 6:11 that of “limited commitment.” Also same in Luke 7:38---46 Mary’s tears which washed away tears washed Jesus’ feet. Herein we find an example of initial “Feet-Washing” in Luke 9:5; then John 11:2; 12:3 in Mary, Martha & Lazarus; John 13:1---17 clearly illustrates New Testament Ordination of the Jews’ Gospel unworthiness.

 

Now read 1st Tim. 5:10 before the Red Cross, Salvation Army, the Medicaid, Medicare, United Way, Social Security, etc. Now read about Mary in – Matt. 26:7--13; Mark 14:3; Luke 7:37; 10:38—42; John 12:3.

So we conclude that feet-washing is a New Testament Church designation of humility.
