John 19:30 Greek

"So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said "Finished!" {tetelestai} {eternal salvation life work complete --- substitutionary spiritual death on the cross}. And having pushed His head forward, He dismissed His spirit {physical death}".


             BY FAITH ALONE

                  IN CHRIST ALONE

* God's happiness has absolutely no association with things, people, circumstances, etc...

* jews that go into the Millennial Reign of Christ will live 1000 years and they will have great prosperity related to land and this earth. Church age believers are not promised this. We are a Heavenly people. In the meantime, we are to be watching for His return at the Rapture.

* There are vast differences between the prior dispensations and the revelations related to those dispensations and the Church age and its Mystery Doctrines. And there are a few similarities, one being faith alone in Christ alone. However, the properties in the Church age Salvation package include many, many things that were not a part of the Salvation package in these prior dispensations. Physical death is not the end for the unbeliever. It is the beginning of his/her everlasting life without Christ. For the believer, physical death is the beginning of Eternal Salvation Life face to face with Christ.

* Church age believers are a privileged class of believers. We are now and forever will be Heavenly Aristocracy. But, until our physical death or the Rapture, we are in the devil's worid. And God is going to provide for all our necessary self continuity issues so we can fulfill His purpose for our being here. And His purpose for our being here is not to gather the devil's stuff.

* We live in an unhappy world where unhappy people are desperately trying to become happy. And guess what, they aren't ever going to be happy. God is the only happy person and He desires to share His happiness with us if we will allow Him to. However, we must do things His way. He knows the only way to cause us to enter into His happiness.

* We are living as strangers down here. We are not an earthly people. We are a Heavenly people and as such, we do not have a nation waiting for us in Heaven. We are just passing through down here on our way to becoming the Bride of Christ. The prior dispensations of believers will not be the Bride of Christ in Heaven.

* The synchronized leader only has 1 hour and 15 minutes to reveal God's thinking to us. And then, Satan has 23 hours and 45 minutes, if we give it to him with our willful consent.

* As we advance in our understanding of God's plan, we will loosen our grip on this lower dimension life.
