You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
11 Strengthened [dunamoo] with [en] all [pas] might [dunamis], according to [kata] his [autos] glorious [doxa] power [kratos], unto [eis] all [pas] patience [hupomone] and [kai] longsuffering [makrothumia] with [meta] joyfulness [chara]; KJV-Interlinear
11 strengthened with all power,
according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and
patience; joyously NASB
The source of Bible
doctrine is truth.The ramifications of
truth is power.Therefore, the result of
Bible doctrine inculcated within your soul, is
The result of power is
command, authority, control, muscle, influence, rule, therefore with spiritual
power welded into your soul, you obtain the ultimate self control over your own
life, as well as acquiring for yourself, an independence from the constraints
of this world.
Does this mean that you
can function apart from the world?No.You still have to live in this world and withstand
or persevere through certain of its whims.
But with respect to your
soul and with respect to your preparation for eternity, the world cannot
prevent you from pursuing your spiritual objectives.The world will try as it may, to prevent, to
distract, to entice, to get you upset, to make you
doubt or question, to do anything that will derail your spiritual progress.
Bible doctrine is the
content of the Bible.Bible doctrine is
the object upon which you focus your attention.
However, when you hear
doctrine, and when you are in fellowship, then the Holy Spirit takes that
information and detours it through your human spirit, and then funnels it back
into your soul, where it becomes the building material for your spiritual
edification within your soul.
God builds up a temple,
a fortress, a palace, muscle, a spiritual machine, within you lean and mean.
When information in
general enters into your soul, through your eyes and ears and fingers and nose,
and without the agency of the Holy Spirit, then all it really does is rattle
around inside your head for a bit, some of it sticks to the grey matter in
there, but most of it simply dribbles out of your ears, or any other openings
that you might have.This general information
is called by the Bible, gnosis or knowledge, which is the basis for human
wisdom or reason.Most of which is
absurd when applied to the various rationalizations of life.
But Bible doctrine that
enters into your head, by means of the usual entry points, and when the Holy
Spirit is operational within you (when you are in fellowship), then that information
is sent through the human spirit and then back into the soul, and resides
within your soul as epignosis or knowledge which becomes the foundation for
wisdom Gods wisdom.
ultimate result?Muscle, strength, power, which is based or
formulated on Gods power, which is something that is very real, unlike earthly
power, which is impotent at best.
next ultimate result?A relaxed mental attitude,
or contentment within life, knowing that your life will only get better, either
in this world but especially in the next, and happiness.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
