in the Divine Dynasphere
Standing in Christ
Growth of the Body
Man – Right Woman
One Another's Weaknesses
1. God is Sovereign.
a. He calls into
being that which never existed and makes it stand (Rom 4:17; Isa
b. He is the Maker
and Controller of all Creation (Psa 119:90-91; Prov 16:4; Isa
44:24-28; 51:13; Jer 51:57).
c. He created the
Universe, angels, mankind, and animals.
2. The model of Creation is a pot created by
God, the Potter (Isa 29:16; 45:9; 64:8; Jer 18:6; Rom 9:21).
3. God allowed angels to sin and suffer the
consequences, which included falling into condemnation and
eternal Judgment (Luk 10:18; Rev 12:9; Matt 25:41).
4. God is Light (1 Jn 1:5). His
Creation is Light; His Son is the Light of the World (Jn 8:12;
9:5); and his followers live in the Light (Jn 12:36; Eph 5:8;
Phil 2:15; 1 Thess 5:5).
5. Satan and his followers exist in the
domain of darkness called the Cosmic System (Acts 26:18; Eph
2:1, 2; Col 1:13; 1 Jn 2:16). God is the source of Peace,
and Satan is the source of tribulation, chaos, confusion, and
Standing in the
1. God has created a sphere of protection for
the believer from the Cosmic System called the Divine Dynasphere.1
2. Residence in the
Divine Dynasphere is standing, while falling into sin results
in residence in the Cosmic System.
3. God is able to make
a person stand or fall (Ps 1:1-6; Jer 49:19; Rom 14:4; Eph
6:13-14; Jude 1:24).
4. The believer in the
Divine Dynasphere stands in fellowship with God (1 Jn
1:7). He has:
a. The Filling of the Holy Spirit (Eph 5:18; 1 Jn 4:4).
b. All the power of God available to him (Eph 1:19, 20;
Col 1:11; 1 Pet 1:5).
c. Spiritual freedom (Rom 8:2; Gal 5:1, 13; 1 Pet 2:16).
5. The person who sins
falls from the Grace of God into slavery to the Old Sin Nature
(Rom 6:6, 12, 19; 2 Pet 2:19) and Satan (1 Tim 3:7; 6:9; 2 Tim
Hebrews 3:14 Standing in Christ
1. The Church Age
Believer in the Divine Dynasphere stands in partnership with
2. The Greek u&povstasi" (hupostasis),
from (u&po, under) + (vstavsi", standing) = standing, essence,
actual being, reality; instantiation (used for sediment
falling out). The meaning depends upon what one is
standing under, e.g. (ref. Heb
1:3, "essence," Heb 11:1, "realization").
a. Standing (hypostatic relationship) is the partnership
of the CAB with Christ, the Head of the Body.
b. The standing in Christ is unique to the Church
Age. It begins at Salvation with Positional Truth when
the CAB is entered into union with Christ. It continues
for all eternity.
c. Holding fast to our standing means continuing to
execute the Spiritual life by staying in the Divine Dynasphere
3. "Stabilized" –
requires alignment of X, Y, Z, and Time axes.
4. "Until the end" –
refers to the end of our life.
For we have become
partners with Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our
standing, stabilized until the end.
1. Promotion and
demotion are Sovereign decisions of God (Psa 75:7; Dan 2:21;
Phil 2:9-11; 1 Pet 5:6; Rev 3:21).
corresponds to making a person stand, and demotion corresponds
to making a person fall.
3. Promotion comes
after waiting in the Divine Dynasphere (Psa 37:34).
a. Waiting may be accompanied by Divine Punishment or
Testing (1 Pet 5:6).
b. God promotes after the test is passed (Jas 4:6).
c. God promotes at the right time (1 Pet 5:6).
Giver of Grace
1. God gives Grace to the humble believer in
the Divine Dynasphere (Isa 66:2; Jas 4:6).
2. The believer in the DD has all his needs
met through Grace (2 Cor 9:8; Phil 4:19).
3. Grace is the free gift of God. It
is not earned or deserved. Only what God does is
acceptable to Him. The believer must orient to the Grace
of God in order to live the New Spiritual life. Grace
Orientation is symbolized by the Door of the Holy Place in the Tabernacle
4. Every aspect of the Christian life must
be lived in Grace, even Spiritual Warfare and handling demon
attacks (2 Cor 12:9; Eph 6:12-15).2
1. Just as sediment falls out, blessing or
cursing may fall out from the hand of God (Deut 11:26).
a. Blessing is
promised for obeying the Lord's commandments (Deut 11:27).
b. Cursing is
promised for disobeying the Lord's commandments (Deut 11:28).
2. When David obeyed God, he received great
blessing (Psa 16:6).
3. Those who disobey God are opposing Him
and must suffer the consequences of His wrath (Heb 10:29-31).
a. The reversionist
will get the Divine punishment he deserves (Isa 3:11).
b. Judah received
double cursing for idolatry (Isa 65:6-7; Jer 16:18).
c. Judah was
destroyed because of sins of rejecting Bible Doctrine (Ezek
11:21 22:31; Hos 4:6).
d. Tyre, Sidon, and
all Philistia would receive the fallout of the wrath of God for
opposing Israel (Joel 3:4).
e. The Prostitute
of Babylon will be repaid with double cursing and destruction in
the Tribulation (Rev 18:6).
4. Under the principle of testing and
assaying the good or the worthless falls out.
a. Testing (Ps
62:12; Prov 24:12; Eccl 3:18; Jer 17:10 32:19; Heb 12:7; Rev
b. Assaying (Is
1:25; Jer 6:27-30; 9:7; Mal 3:3).
5. Threshing and winnowing separates the
wheat from the chaff.
a. Threshing (Prov
20:26; Isa 21:10; 28:27; Jer 51:33)
b. Winnowing (Ruth
3:2; Job 21:18; Ps 1:4; 35:5; Jer 15:7; 51:2; Matt 3:12).
Sowing and Reaping
1. Sowing and reaping are the agricultural
analogy of production. Under this analogy a person reaps
what he sows (Gal 6:7).
a. A person who
sows to his Old Sin Nature by sinning will reap corruption, but
a person who sows to the Spirit (faith in Christ) will reap
Eternal Life (Gal 6:8).
b. Those who
perform Divine Good
will reap their rewards if they do not grow weary and give up
2. Double Cursing
Job 4:8 Double Cursing
a. Plowing iniquity
and sowing sorrow are temporal decisions under the Law of
b. Reaping sorrow
is spiritual cursing of Divine discipline.
According to what I have
seen, those who plow iniquity
And those who sow sorrow,
c. Double cursing is (1) cursing
under the Law of Divine Responsibility (what we do to ourselves)
and (2) Divine discipline from God.
3. Those who reject Bible Doctrine will eat
the bad fruit they produce and be sated with their own devices
4. The reversionist earns deceptive wages,
but the believer who sows Divine Righteousness will receive a
true reward (Prov 11:18).
5. Sowing iniquity
The one who sows iniquity (sin) reaps
trouble. For this one the rod of God's wrath fully
6. Under the Law of Double Discipline those
who sow to the wind reap the whirlwind (ref. Hosea 8:7).
The people of the Northern Kingdom of Israel made bad decisions
to reject Bible Doctrine, practice idolatry, and negotiate peace
treaties with their enemies. These bad decisions under the
Law of Volitional Responsibility were like sowing to the
wind. After suffering for their own bad decisions, God
added Divine Punishment. They were destroyed by the
Assyrians. They reaped the whirlwind.
7. The believer who sows Divine
Righteousness will reap God's Gracious Love (ref. Hos
10:12). Sowing Righteousness means making decisions
and performing deeds based on God's Righteousness, X-axis
8. Those who cultivate reversionism will
reap wrongdoing and eat the fruit of lying (ref. Hos
a. Cultivation, or
plowing, reversionism refers to temporal decisions under Law of
wrongdoing is spiritual production that will bring Divine
c. Eating the fruit
(production) of lying means reaping the result of a policy based
upon the lies of the devil's world. The people did not
trust the Lord with Divine viewpoint but followed Satan's policy
9. Living the old life of sin after
Salvation is like sowing sin from the OSN. It will result
in spiritual death (Rom 8:13). However, putting to death
the sinful deeds of the body through Rebound will result in Spiritual life
(Filling of the Holy Spirit) and the ability to live the New
Spiritual life in Christ.
10. A person will reap what he sows.
He who sows iniquity reaps
And the rod of His wrath
will be completed.
a. "God cannot be mocked" means God is
watching and no one can escape His notice.
b. Under the Law of
Volitional Responsibility a person will reap the results of what
he sows (Hos 8:7; Jas 4:9).
11. Sowing to the flesh results in reaping
corruption, but sowing to the Spirit results in reaping Eternal
Stop being deceived, God
cannot be mocked; for whatever a person sows, that he will
a. "The one who sows to his own flesh" is
the one who sins and reaps spiritual death ("corruption").
b. "The one who sows to the Spirit" is the
one who lives the New Spiritual life in the Filling of the Holy
Spirit. He will reap Eternal Life and Eternal rewards.
12. Christians must avoid discouragement as
they wait to reap.
For the one who sows to
his own flesh (OSN) shall from the flesh reap corruption,
but the one who sows to the Spirit shall from the Spirit
reap Eternal Life.
"Producing Divine Good"
comes from executing the Spiritual life. The Christian
must not be discouraged and faint in his soul. Fainting
means falling into emotional subjectivity. Even if the
testing is difficult, Eternal rewards await those who persevere.
13. Peacemakers sow the fruit of Righteousness
(ref. Jas 3:18). "The fruit of
Righteousness" is Eternal Life, which results from the Gospel
that is given by the peacemaker. The peacemaker resides in
the Peace of the Divine Dynasphere and invites others into that
Peace through Reconciliation.
14. Those who produce Divine Good will reap
Eternal rewards, but those who produce evil will reap the wrath
of God on Judgment Day (Rom 2:5-10).
Let us not become
discouraged in producing Divine Good, for in due time we
will reap if we do not faint.
1. The Church is founded upon the Rock of
Christ and cannot be overpowered by the gates of Hades.
Matthew 16:18 Future Church Universal
a. Peter is the
Greek Pevtro" (petros),
meaning stone, boulder. Peter was a nickname. He was
originally called Simon (Jn 1:42).
b. "Rock" is the
Greek pevtra (petra), meaning
rock, used for a large, solid rock or cliff, used for the rock
in which a tomb is hewn (Matt 27:60; Mk 15:46) or a foundation
(Matt 7:24). "This rock" refers to Jesus Christ, the
founder of the Church.
c. However, the pun
is best appreciated in the original Aramaic, where the same word
for rock (kepha) is used both times.
d. "Hades" (or
Hell) is the fiery abode of departed unbelievers and fallen
angels. It will be replaced by the Lake of Fire (Matt
25:41; Rev 19:20; 20:10, 14-15).
e. "The gates of Hades" refers to openings
into Hades. However, the underworld will not be able to
rise up and attack the Church because the Church is protected by
a Divine Dynasphere.
2. Body of Christ
a. Christ is the
Head, and individual Church Age Believers are members of His
Body (Rom 12:4-5; Eph 4:15-16; Col 1:18; 2:19).
b. The Body is
God's Design, and individual members are called to serve in
different capacities (Col 3:15).
c. They are given
special gifts to perform different functions (Rom 12:6-8; 1 Cor
7:7; 12:4-31; 1 Pet 4:10).
congregations are called out for teaching and training
individuals to perform their role in the Body (Eph 4:11-13).
And I also say to you that
you are Peter (which means rock), and upon this rock I will
build My Church, and the gates of Hades shall not overpower
1. Individual believer-priests of the Church
are like stones of a spiritual temple according to the building
2. Believer-priests draw near to Christ, the
1 Peter 2:4
a. Drawing near to
Christ means coming into fellowship with Him.
b. Christ is called
a "Living Stone" in the spiritual analogy of a building
stone. Unlike a physical stone, He has Spiritual life.
c. Christ was
rejected by men, who chose not to believe in Him.
d. But in the
judgment of God, Christ was "choice" and "precious."
"Choice" – highest quality
"Precious" – great value. Precious stones are gem stones
like diamonds, rubies, etc.
Toward Whom (Christ)
we are drawing near, Himself a Living Stone who was
rejected by men, but in the sight of God choice and
1 Peter 2:5 Holy Priesthood
a. "Living stones" – individual
believer-priests in the Church who are Spiritually alive (with
Eternal Life and the Filling of the Holy Spirit). The
living stones are spiritual.
b. "Built up" refers to the calling out of
the Holy Priesthood as well as edification of individual
c. A "spiritual house" is a temple, which
corresponds to the Church, the congregation of CAB's.
d. "Holy priesthood" means set apart to
e. A priest
represents himself and others before God.
f. The priests
offer "Spiritual sacrifices,"
Faith, Hope, and Love; use of Spiritual gifts, prayer, praise;
execution of the Spiritual Life, Spiritual Warfare.
The life of the CAB is offered up to God (Phil 2:17; 2 Tim 4:6).
g. "Acceptable to God" – acceptable to the
will of God and compatible with His essence. This requires
obedience to Bible Doctrine.
h. "Through Jesus Christ" – all that we
offer to God is through Christ, beginning with Salvation and
continuing in the daily execution of the Spiritual life
following His example in Hypostatic Union and our standing in
the Divine Dynasphere.
stones forming a Spiritual temple indicates the spiritual bodies
of believers are the building stones. The pressure points
of the spiritual body would thus be analogous to crystals or gem
You yourselves also as
living stones are being built up a spiritual house to be
a holy priesthood to offer up Spiritual sacrifices
acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Crystals of Spiritual Body
4. Christ the Cornerstone
Crown – Amethyst
Soul - Topaz, Citrine
Throat – Blue Chalcedony, Sodalite
Breast – Sapphire
Solar Plexus – Emerald
Womb – Carnelian
Genitals – Sardonyx
Feet – Milky Quartz
1 Peter 2:6 Christ the Cornerstone
a. This a quote from
Isaiah 28:16 in which the cornerstone of the Temple in Jerusalem
symbolized the Lord.
b. The cornerstone
of a building symbolized the head, or most significant, stone in
the building. The cornerstone was the reference point for
the layout of the rest of the building. Since the
cornerstone was the foundation stone for two walls of the
building, it must be perfectly shaped and able to sustain the
load without shifting, turning, or buckling. The laying of
the first cornerstone of a building was usually accompanied by a
ceremony that often included sacrifices and offerings to invoke
Divine providence for the prosperity and protection of the
c. Jesus Christ is
symbolized by a cornerstone that corresponds to the Head of the
d. Jesus Christ is
also the Cornerstone of Jewish believers and brings both Jews
and Gentile believers together (Eph 2:13-20).
e. Those who
believe in Christ will not be disappointed (Isa 28:16; Rom 5:5).
5. Rejected Stone
For it stands written in
"Behold I lay in Zion a
Stone, a choice and precious Cornerstone,
And the one who believes
in Him will absolutely not be disappointed."
1 Peter 2:7
a. "Honor" is the precious value bestowed on the
cornerstone. Cornerstones were special, and this one has
been afforded the highest honor and esteem.
b. The honor afforded to the cornerstone is recognized
c. Those who disbelieve are like builders who reject the
d. Jesus Christ was rejected like the stone (Matt 27:42;
Mark 12:10; Luke 20:17; Acts 4:11).
"Head of the corner" is a Hebraism (Ps 118:22) for cornerstone.
f. Jesus Christ became the Cornerstone – the symbolic
Cornerstone of the Old and New Testament congregations of
6. Stumbling Stone
This honor therefore is
for you who believe, but for those who disbelieve, "The
Stone which the builders rejected,
This has become the head
of the corner (cornerstone)."
1 Peter 2:8
a. The Lord is the stumbling stone and rock of offense
(Isa 8:14; Luk 2:34; Rom 9:32; 1 Cor 1:23).
b. They stumble over Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone,
because they do not believe His Word (Bible Doctrine).
c. They do not stand but stumble and fall into the
d. They who stumble were destined for stumbling and
falling and going to destruction (Ex 9:16; Rom 9:22; 1Th 5:9;
2Pe 2:3; Jude 1:4).
7. Royal Priesthood
"A stone of stumbling and
a rock of offense";
They stumble because they
are disobedient to the Word, to which (stumbling)
they were even appointed.
1 Peter 2:9 Royal Family of God
a. This is a quote from Exodus 19:6 in the
Septuagint. Here it applies to the Church, but it also
applies to Israel in the Millennium. In the Millennium:
The Church will rule and reign with Jesus Christ, the King and
will be a Royal Priesthood.
Israel will be a Client Nation and serve the Lord Jesus
Christ, the King on the Throne of David. Israel will
have royal status and a priesthood. The Gentile nations
will serve Israel, and Israel will be concerned with
administration of people on Earth. Israel will not enjoy
a higher status than the Church.
b. Church Age Believers are a "chosen family,"
the Royal Family of God. Jesus Christ is the King, and
the Church is His Royal Family.
"Royal priesthood" means the Church has royalty and priestly
function (Rev 1:6; 5:10; Heb 11:40). Jesus Christ is the
High Priest of the Church. Royalty is temporal and
identified with Jesus Christ the King, and priest is Spiritual
under Christ the High Priest.
"Holy nation" means a people without sin and consecrated to
"A people for God's
possession" – CABs are purchased
property from the slave market of sin (Eph 1:14) and God's
valued property (Ex 19:5; Deut. 7:6).
f. CABs will be the Lord's possession at the Rapture
(Col 3:4) just as Israel will be the Lord's possession at the
Resurrection on the Day of the Lord (Second Advent) (Mal 3:17;
g. CAB's will stand in the Divine Dynasphere in the
Light of God.
8. The Church is built
on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ as
But you are a chosen
family, a royal priesthood, a Holy nation, a people for God's
possession, that you may declare the excellencies of Him who
called you out from darkness into His marvelous Light.
Ephesians 2:19-20 Church Building Analogy
a. The prophets taught the doctrine about the future
Savior and His work of Redemption.
b. The apostles provided the Church Age doctrine for the
c. Cornerstone is the Greek a*krogwniai'o"
(akrogoniaios) from (a!kro",
extreme point) + (gwniva, corner) =
lying at the extreme corner; cornerstone or capstone.
d. Christ, the Cornerstone, holds the building together.
9. The Church is a
therefore, you (Gentiles) are no longer strangers and
aliens, but you are fellow-citizens of the saints and
members of the Family of God.
20 Having been built on
the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Himself
being the Cornerstone.
Ephesians 2:21 Church Built Around the Lord
a. The Church is analogous to a building built around
Christ, the Cornerstone.
"Joined together" is the Greek sunarmologevw,
(sunarmologeo) = fit or join together (Eph 4:16)
Can be used for joining together stones to construct a
building as the masons do in Israel with irregular stones.
This indicates that the spiritual bodies of believers are
Stones joined together are analogous to the joints of human
bodies, which symbolize pastor-teachers (Eph 4:16; Col 2:19).
c. The Church is growing "into
a Holy temple."
Refers to the Church in the spiritual realm.
Refers to the Church in the Heavenly Jerusalem (Gal 4:26; 2 Ti
4:18; Heb 12:22-23; 13:10-14),
"In the sphere of the Lord" means the Church Temple grows in relation to
the Lord Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone.
e. Thus, the Temple, or building, corresponds to the
Body in the Body of Christ analogy. The Head and the
Body correspond to the Cornerstone and the Temple (or
10. God dwells in the
In Whom (Christ)
the whole building (Church), being joined together under
construction, is growing into a Holy temple in the
sphere of the Lord.
Ephesians 2:22 Dwelling Place of God
a. "A dwelling place of
God in the sphere of the Spirit"
– God will dwell in the Church in the sphere of the Holy
b. Not only are individual members of the Church indwelt
by the Trinity, but they are collectively members of a Temple
that is built around Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone, and
indwelt by the Holy Spirit for the indwelling of God.
c. God the Father lives in the Spiritual house (Temple)
with His family, the Church.
In Whom (the Lord)
you also are being built together into a dwelling place of
God in the sphere of the Spirit.
Growth of the Body
1. Spiritual growth comes through the
metabolization of Bible Doctrine taught by the local
Ephesians 4:15 Spiritual Growth
a. The local
pastor-teacher communicates truth (Bible Doctrine) to the local
b. "In the sphere of Love" refers to
reciprocal Love for Christ
c. "We may grow up in Him in all things" –
refers to Spiritual growth.
"In Him" means the believer-priest
is in the Body, which is in union with the Head, who is Christ.
In contrast is a person under the influence of the Cosmic
"All things" refers to growing up
in all aspects of the Spiritual life, including Faith, Hope, and
2. Body of Christ
But communicating the
truth (Bible Doctrine) in the sphere of Divine Love,
we may grow up in Him in all things, who is the Head,
Ephesians 4:16 Body of Christ
a. "From Whom" is ablative of source,
meaning "from the source of Whom." The Head directs the
entire Body (the Church).
b. "Being integrated" – this is union with
Christ of all local churches.
c. "And united" – this is the harmonious
rapport of the Body in relation to the Head.
d. "Through every joint of supply" –
joints symbolize pastor-teachers. The pastor supplies
nourishment to the local congregation.
e. "According to the proper function of each
individual part" – refers to the proper and
proportionate function of the parts of the Body which will be
integrated into the whole.
f. "Of each individual part" – these are
the local congregations and individual members.
g. "Produces growth of the Body" – refers
to Spiritual growth and evangelism.
h. "Resulting in the edification of itself"
- Edification refers to erecting the Edification
Complex of the Soul. The ECS is built from
i. "In the sphere of Divine Love" – this
is the Love relationship of Christ and the Church (Eph 5:25-26).
From Whom (Christ the
Head) the whole Body, being integrated and united
through every joint of supply, according to the proper
function of each individual part, produces growth of the
Body resulting in the edification of itself in the sphere of
The Local Church
1. The local church consists of a pastor and
a congregation of believers who assemble for the purpose of
worshipping God through the communication of Bible Doctrine.
a. The pastor as
the under shepherd teaches the congregation Bible Doctrine in
order to edify them (Eph 4:11-13; 1 Pet 5:2-4).
b. The congregation
assembles for the purpose of worship and being taught Bible
Doctrine (Heb 10:25).
2. The local church with the pastor as the
head and the congregation as the body symbolizes the overall
Church, or Body of Christ, with Christ as the Head and Church
Age Believers as the Body (Rom 12:5; Eph 4:12; Col 1:18, 24).
a. The joints of
the human body symbolize the pastors and the parts of the body
that function with the joints symbolize the local congregations
b. Individual local
churches throughout the history of the Church Age comprise the
Body of Christ.
3. The Lord as the High Priest appoints
pastors, administrators, and members of local churches for His
purpose (1 Cor 12:28; Col 1:25).
a. The Lord selects
the location of the churches, names them personally, supports,
and protects them in the Divine Dynasphere.
b. The Lord
provides Spiritual gifts to support the church and serve others
(Rom 12:6-8; 1 Cor 12:4-11; 1 Pet 4:10).
4. Individual believers are the salt of the
land, and local churches are the pillars of support for the
Client Nation (Matt 5:13; 1 Tim 3:15).
a. As goes the
church, so goes the nation (Lev 26).
doctrinal churches support historical blessing (Deut 11:27).
churches bring national cursing (Deut 11:28; Hos 4:6).
5. The congregation in fellowship with God
in the Divine Dynasphere should have Divine Love, unity, peace,
and harmony with Christ (Col 3:14-15).
a. The congregation
should be full of doctrine and songs of praise (Col 3:16).
b. The congregation
should be full of thanksgiving (Col 3:17).
6. Sin and carnality in local churches cause
them to fall out of the Divine Dynasphere into the Cosmic
a. Such local
churches are not serving God but sin (Jude 1:16, 18).
b. Sin may cause
jealous ambition, strife and divisions, and quarrels (1 Cor
1:10-12; 3:3; 11:18).
c. Sin may cause
confusion (1 Cor 14:33).
d. To avoid
arrogant ambition in women in the church, they were commanded to
keep silent in church (1 Cor 14:34).
7. Local churches are attacked by Satan
through false teachers, antichrists, and Jezebel (2 Cor 11:3-4,
13; 1 Tim 6:5; 1 Jn 2:18, 22; 4:1-3; 2 Jn 7; 2 Pet 2:1-3, 14;
Jude 1:16; Rev 2:20).
Man – Right Woman
as we are "one Body" in Christ (Rom 12:5), Right Man and Right
Woman are one body (Gen 2:24; Eph 5:31). Their two bodies
are bound together into one body by the genitals in sex.
2. The Right Man and Right Woman are a
corporate system and a team. God created them for each
other, and they are inseparably united until death (ref. 1 Cor.
a. Because Right
Man and Right Woman are a system, they cannot be separated.
b. If one is
Judged, both are Judged.
c. If one is
sanctified, both are sanctified (1 Cor 7:14).
d. They have
authority over each other's bodies (1 Cor 7:4).
3. The Right Woman is sanctified by Right
Man (2 Cor 6:14-17; ref. Eph
4. Thus, the Right Man – Right Woman system
illustrates the intimate spiritual connections that are possible
for two bodies in a Divinely ordained system.
1. Blessing or cursing of Divine
Institutions, corresponding to standing or falling, is based
upon the Sovereign decision of God.
2. Nations rise and fall through the Cycles
National Blessing and Cursing
based on the Sovereign decision of God.
3. Family is another Divine Institution that
may be blessed or cursed in relation to the nation and the
4. Within a nation the Military and Civilian
Establishments may be blessed or cursed.
Bearing One Another's Weaknesses
1. Under the Mosaic Law if you saw the
donkey of one who hated you lying helpless under its load, you
were required to help the donkey and release him from his load
2. Moses complained to the Lord about having
to bear the burden of the people of Israel, who were stubborn
and rebellious (Num 11:11, 12). He also complained to the
people and proposed that they select leaders to help govern

3. In Isaiah's day the people wondered why

not notice? Behold, on the day of your fast you seek
your own pleasure, and you oppress all your workers.

believers, who are positive. (Gal 6:1-2 1Th 5:14).
