Neglect

Holding Ground in Prosperity or Adversity

What happened to the Hebrew believers who had been
advancing so well? When God  began to send blessing
 their way and they became prosperous and successful,
they fail to pass  the prosperity test (Deut. 8:11-14). The
greatest danger in prosperity is to lose track of the Source
and to assume YOU had something to do with your pro--
motion or success. When you lose the grace perspective,
you neglect Bible doctrine. Neglect and rejection of doc-
trine go hand in hand and lead to reversionism. This  was
the case with the believers in Jerusalem. What was the 
result of their reversionism?


He that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder
of them that diligently seek him.
Hebrews 11:6

Dear Lord, I bow before you in stillness and feel you very near.
Here are my problems. Help me to find your way for me.

Genetically Formed

Old Sin Nature
The source of human sin, good and evil. Genetically
formed, it originated as a direct result of Adam's first
sin, and resides in the cell structure of human body 
(Rom. 6:6; 7:15,18). While both male and female are
carries, the sin nature is transmitted only through the
twenty-three chromosomes in the male sperm that 
fertilizes the female ovum (Gen. 5:3 ). At the physical
birth of every individual, Adam's original sin is imputed
to the old sin nature (Rom.5:12), resulting in both spirit-
ual death and the sovereignty of the sin nature over human
life (Rom. 6:12).

"Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted."
Matthew 5:4

Thank you, God, for the many times you have come to our rescue.
Help us to trust you when dark times come.

Beginning The Advance

Taking The High Ground
Hebrews 10:32-39
 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after
ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions
(Heb. 10:32).

What are the mechanics of remembering again and again?
The function of memory resides in the soul. The soul area 
contains self-consciousness
 (awareness of your own existence) 
volition, emotion, conscience (norms and standards),and
mentality, which is divided into two lobes. The right lobe
is the dominant lobe of the soul, designated in the Greek
by the word Kardia (translated "heart" in your English
Bible). "Heart" is never used in a physical sense; it always
refers to the thinking part of the mentality. The left or 
perceptive lobe, where all information first enters, is called
the Nous (translated "mind" ) and acts as a staging area for
knowledge.

Super-Grace

Surpassing Grace
(Phase Three)

Embodies the special blessings and rewards that belong
to the super-grace believer in eternity. If you have claimed
your super-grace paragraph of blessing in time, God has even
more superabundant blessings for you in eternity, called
"surpassing grace riches" ( literally) in Ephesians 2:7. Above
and beyond the normal blessings of heaven, such as those
described in Revelation 21:4, these are reserved for those
believers who seize and hold the high ground of the super--
grace life in time.

The High Ground

(3) Super--Grace

The greater grace of Jas. 4:6 is the high ground of the tactical
victory of the angelic conflict and the objective of the Christian
life. This is the place of maximum utilization of grace in either
adversity or prosperity and the area of reaping what God sows.
Basic for the normal function of the royal priesthood the super-
grace status is the initial stage in spiritual maturity.

A Rapture And A Dispensation Are----

Rapture:
The resurrection of all dead   believers of the Church Age;
at this time, they and all living believers are caught up to
meet Christ in the air to become the Bride of Christ.
(1 Thess. 4:14-17)

Dispensation:
A period of time expressing the divine viewpoint of human
history; the divine outline of history, or the divine interpretation
of human history, which encompasses four general categories:
Gentiles, Jews, Church, Christ.

Love

Living Grace
(Phase Two)

This includes all that the Trinity must do in order to keep
the believer alive in the devil's world. Phase Two begins
immediately after salvation and continues until either death
or the Rapture occurs. Since God has assigned each believer
a certain span of time on this earth, no person, no angel, nor
any circumstance can remove you from this life until your
allotted time has expired. For this phase of  the Plan of Grace,
God supplies the "beans and bullets," those necessities in the
physical and spiritual lives of His Family.  There are the daily
needs, such as food, shelter, transportation and clothing; but
 more important, He has provided the drill manual for the
Christian soldier---Bible doctrine---

No Boasting


Saving Grace

( Phase One)
Encompasses all that the Trinity has accomplished for 
our salvation: the Father's design, the Son's performance,and the
Holy Spirit's revelation of the Plan.

Salvation was provided in toto;  nothing can or need be added
to it!
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of your
selves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, least any man
should boast (Eph.2:8,9).

"My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness."

The Plan

The entire Plan can be summed up in one word---GRACE.
Since God is perfect, His Plan is perfect and complete. He
needs no help from us in its execution; and because Grace
is the issue, the Plan depends solely on who and what God
is! The  Plan of Grace falls into five general categories.

Grace:  All that God  is free to do for man on the basis of
the propitiatory work of Christ on the Cross. The title of 
God's Plan for mankind.

It Is A War

Enlistment Into The Royal Combat Battalion

The primary purpose of the Church Age is the formation of
the Royal Family of God. Upon an act of personal faith in the
Lord Jesus Christ, each believer becomes a son who is brought
unto glory (Heb. 2:10). You may well ask, "Why, then, am I left
on earth after salvation?" The answer is that your transfer from
the kingdom of Satan to Kingdom of God is a spiritual transfer
and does not in any way imply an immediate PCS (permanent
 change
of station). Rather, upon your regeneration and consequent en--
listment in the Royal Combat Battalion, your life has taken on 
a special meaning. In the tactical disposition of His Royal Troops,
Divine Omniscience has allotted every believer a specified portion
of time and a place on earth where he can best serve his Lord.

Loud Voice

And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
[expired] Mark 15:37

Here "cried" is the aorist active participle of Aphiemi, again a
constantive aorist. Matthew used this same verb for the physical 
death of Christ, but Mark used it to emphasize His Breath control.
The constantive aorist describes the last breath of our Lord . Literally,
"And Jesus, having exhaled with a loud voice, expired (by His own
volition.) While Matthew portrays the loudness of the sound, Mark
indicates that Jesus exhaled these words and by an act of His own
volition did not inhale again, Mark demonstrates that when Jesus 
uttered His last words, He was fully conscious and lucid. Had Jesus
bled to death, He would have fainted; yet He was in perfect control
of all His faculties, a fact also established by John in his report:---
and he [Jesus] bowed his head..."(John 19:30). His head remained
erect until  He had finished His mission.

Gap

Doctrine of the Royal Family of God
Grace Apparatus For Perception

The divine provision for spiritual growth and advancement
whereby every  believer can understand every doctrine,
regardless of education or human IQ. Basically, this includes the
pastor-teacher for communication of doctrine, the local church as
the classroom for learning doctrine, the Holy Spirit as the Teacher
of doctrine, the human spirit of the believer for the storage of doctrine,
and the function of the right lobe for the assimilation and application
of  doctrine.
By R.B. Thieme,Jr

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out
everything on your own. Listen for God's voice in everything
you do, everywhere you go; He's the one who will keep you on

We Carry The Colors in To Battle

Our Lord's Dying Command To 
Follow The Colors

In order that we might understand our mission on earth, the
Lord Jesus Christ presented to the Royal Family of God its
regimental colors and issued the command to follow the colors
and to seize and hold the high ground of the super-grace life! 
While Bible doctrine forms our regimental colors, we can
advance only through the residency of doctrine in our souls.
This advance demands a positive attitude toward the Word and
a consistent function of the "grace apparatus for perception."
During the Incarnation, Jesus Christ Himself followed the colors
to the high ground, which culminated in the most dramatic and
significant event in history----- the Cross. From there, He passed
the colors on to us.

The High Ground

Every Combatant
in the angelic conflict can draw limitless equipment from the divine
arsenal (Eph. 6:10-18)!
Every believer has the opportunity to achieve Tactical Victories in
his spiritual warfare! As we once exploit the strategic victory of the 
Cross by personal faith in the Son of God (Act 16:31), so we are now
exhorted to Follow The  Colors by a consistent intake of Bible doctrine.
By means of that same doctrine resident in our souls, we advance to the
High Ground Of Spiritual Maturity.

Victory In Christ

In The Angelic Conflict:

Jesus Christ won the STRATEGIC VICTORY by His substitutionary
death on the Cross, His burial, resurrection, ascension and session at
the right hand of  the throne of the Father. To Satan and his demons,
the bruising  of the Savior's heel (Gen. 3:15) signaled the inevitable
destruction of every fiendish plan since Eden (1 John 3:8) as well as 
their ultimate doom (Matt. 25:41). To the believer, the Cross meant a
share of the spoils of victory (1 Cor.15:57); Eph. 4:8). 
When Jesus Christ took our place on Calvary and was judged for the 
sins of the entire world (1 John 2:2), He provided not only eternal
 redemption for all mankind but also the most advantageous position
for defeating our greatest antagonists: the world (1 John 2:16), the
flesh (Gal. 5:16, 17) and the devil (1 Pet. 5:8).

The Unseen Mighty Foe

A Command
To follow the colors is issued to every believer by Jesus Christ, the
Supreme Commander of the heavenly host. The Church Age believer's
salvation and subsequent regeneration have enlisted him permanently
in the ranks of the Royal Combat Divisions of the Family of God.
Whether
he so desires or not, the Christian finds himself in enemy territory, in 
Cosmos Diabolicus (Satan's world system). He is in the world, but not 
of the world (John 15:18,19). He is locked in invisible but deadly com-
bat with an unseen, mighty foe-- the devil and his demonic army
(Eph. 6:12). This invisible warfare, which will terminate only at the 
end of time, is called the "angelic conflict."

Forces Of Satan--- Forces Of God

Down Through The ages
 Military organizations have employed  various types of regimental
standards or flags by which soldiers could recognize their unit amidst
the confusion of combat. 
With the introduction of the modern  military tactics of extended order
of battle and dispersion of troops,the army developed the guidon system.
Every regiment was assigned its own particular colors. The colors were
the tactical means for rallying the troops in the heat of battle. The battle
cry, "Follow The Colors".

Follow The Colors

The Challenge To Follow The Colors

Since the dawn of civilization, warfare has played a major role
in the affairs of mankind (Gen. 4:22). The Bible testifies to this
 fact  not only by prophecy (Gen.3:15; Matt. 24:6-8; Rev. 6:2-4),
but also by historic commentary. A great number of the inspired
writers of  the Canon utilized  martial idioms and  metaphors to 
express doctrinal truths. It is significant, therefore, that the  pursuit
of the epitome of spiritual maturity should be described in the
Scriptures in terms of military vernacular.

year-old can believe in Jesus Christ as Savior, then he can learn,
think, and use Bible doctrine.

Teach A Way Of Life

Children's Books

Children's Bible Studies
A treasure-trove of ideas for parents and teachers looking for
ways to communicate Bible doctrine at a child's level of 
understanding. These doctrines are taught through a series of
stories that introduce the child to technical theological 
vocabulary and doctrinal concepts. God mandates the parent to
study and learn Bible doctrine. Using their own doctrinal frame
of reference, personality, and approach, parents can then fulfill
their responsibility to God to teach their children the Word (Deut.
6:6--7). Bible doctrine as a way of life is the most valuable heritage
parents can give their children (2 John 4).

Scriptures Resolve Mystery

The Origin of Human Life
This has kindled intense debate for centuries. How did the human
race originate? Did God provide the initial spark of life to Adam
then entrust the continuation of that life to mankind? Or does God
still breathe the "breath of life" into every human being? If so, when?
At conception, during pregnancy, or at physical birth?

The Origin of Human Life addresses these complex questions and 
pertinent biblical verses. Some passages appear to be contradictory
only because they are misunderstood. Only the Scriptures can resolve
the mystery of when human life begins.

Profound Mystery

Creation Books

Creation, Chaos, & Restoration

Who has not gazed  at the stars on a clear night and wondered
at the origin of the universe?
Who has not marveled at the order and precise workings of our
own planet and pondered its cause? Finally, the most profound
mystery of all: How did life begin?
Did our complex, orderly universe simply explode into existence
by chance alone? Did lifeless matter accidentally spawn living
organisms over millions of years, or was everything created instantly
by an omnipotent designer? Only the infallible Word of God
accurately answers these questions.
God instantly created  the heavens and the earth. This pristine earth,
originally occupied by the angels, became a chaotic ruin following
Satan's revolt against God. In grace God restored  the planet in six
days for human habitation. Learn the divine account of the origin
of the universe and the human race.

Against The Gates Of Hell

Victorious Proclamation

History's most unique testimony to the Gospel occurred
shortly after Jesus Christ rose from the grave. Christ em-
barked on a remarkable journey to make"proclamation to
the spirits in prison." Who were these spirits? Why and
where were they incarcerated? The spirits were the "sons
of God" of Genesis 6, Satan's minions, who waged war in 
the antediluvian civilization to prevent the advent of Jesus
Christ through whom God would fulfill His promise of 
salvation. When  God judged the earth with a worldwide
flood, He imprisoned these transgressing demons in Tartarus.
Jesus Christ's pronouncement of His victory on the cross 
resounded against the gates of hell. The resurrected Christ
was visible proof to the incarcerated demons of the utter
failure and defeat of Satan's strategy. Jesus Christ had paid 
the penalty for sin so that anyone can express faith in Him
and enter into a relationship with God for all eternity.

"You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son. You shall name

We Must Eliminate Confusion

Satan And Demonism

Before the beginning of human  history, Satan and his angels instigated  a 
conflict in the spiritual realm that continues to this very moment. The drama
of  this  spiritual warfare storms across the pages of the Bible from Genesis to
Revelation. Mankind was created to resolve this ancient conflict, but Satan and
the unseen demon hordes he commands will not suffer defeat without an intense
struggle.One tactic  Satan  employs is the  varied  facets of demon activity, which
have plagued  mankind since  the fall of Adam. Demonism  blinds  unbelievers to
the  Gospel, distracts believers from the  spiritual life, and threatens  nations  with
divine judgment. Those who are ignorant or confused about Satan's subtle strategies
 become easy prey. The Bible emphatically warns against courting or consorting  with
any from of demonism. Critical questions continually arise: How do people become
enmeshed in demonism? What is demon influence? Who can be demon possessed? Is
exorcism valid? How can the believer  protect himself  from the  demonic? Only the
Bible can answer  these questions and   eliminate the  confusion.

Understanding

Levitical Offerings

Depicted the person and work of Christ before He  "became flesh
and tabernacled among us". The Jewish rituals revealed in the Old
Testament give us a new appreciation of our magnificent Savior.
Why is  He the "Lamb of God"? Why is His saving work called the
"blood of Christ"? Five Levitical offerings instituted in Leviticus 1---6
teach vital doctrines concerning our so-great salvation and the mechanics
of recovering temporal fellowship with God after committing sin. Generation
upon generation of believers learned Bible doctrine from these dramatic
ceremonies,  and as we view our Lord's work from this ancient perspective,
we increase our own understanding of God's Word.

A Single Star

In Harm's Way

This message is dedicated to men and women in the military who are
on active duty. The present crises in the Middle East remind us again
that military service is honorable and a part of full-time Christian service.
 God has ordained and given us wonderful principles of doctrine
related to freedom through military victory and the maintenance of peace
 by military deterrent. In World War I and II, the Blue Star Service Banner
   was proudly displayed in the windows of the homes of those serving
 in the United States armed forces. Each family member in the service was
represented by a single star. The banner served as a constant reminder of
those in foreign lands fighting to preserve our freedom.

Cherished Liberty

Freedom Through Military Victory

Can a believer in Jesus Christ serve his country as a soldier, kill the enemy, and
 at the same time be a good Christian? Can a believer justify being a conscientious
 objector? Did God contradict Himself in the commandments, "You shall not murder"
and "You  shall defeat them, then you shall utterly destroy them"? The Bible answers
  these critical questions. God established a principle by which a nation may guard
 its sovereignty, maintain its freedom, and protect its citizenry from the horrors of
 conquest by a foreign power. An alert and
  stalwart military force averts armed conflict and deters wanton aggression. Yet when
an enemy aggressor will not be deterred, the military must defend and protect those
who cannot defend themselves. those in military service who place a higher value on
their families, friends, and nation then on their own lives ensure the survival of our
cherished liberty. Just as the Lord Jesus Christ made the greatest sacrifice of all history
on the cross-- dying so that mankind might have eternal life---so the military warriors
sacrifice their time, their fortunes, and sometimes their lives that others might live in
freedom.

Etched In Time

The Divine Outline Of History:
Dispensations And The Church

The divine outline of history is etched  in time and explained 
in the Word of God. God unfolds His plan for mankind as a 
sequence of historical epochs. Unique characteristics identify
each period as a distinct  administration or "dispensation" of
divine  grace. God Himself  never changes. His  successive 
dispensations achieve His unchanging purpose, revealing His
self  and His perfect glory in every human situation. This book
casts a dramatic light on Jesus Christ, the focal point of human
history. Biblical mandates for the current epoch, the Age of the
Church, clarify the Christian's role in history and his unique
opportunity for glorifying Christ.

Book By R.B. Thieme, Jr. 

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the 
Lord's purpose that prevails.

Never Waver

Daniel Chapters One Through Six

In every age, God's plan for humanity includes certain ordinary
people who do the extraordinary: they impact history and glorify
God by using divine solutions to overcome adversity. What enables
these remarkable believers to exhibit virtue and courage in a crisis ?
They trust in the Lord and fortify their souls with Bible doctrine. 
Daniel was such a man. Under the intense pressure of catastrophe,
his faithfulness and dependence on the Lord distinguished him as a
man with a noble purpose in life. God uses prepared believers, and
this Jewish aristocrat was spiritually prepared to transform the 
Chaldean and Persian Empires into citadels of stability and honor
 in the ancient world. Devoted service and promotion to high office
in both Chaldean and Persia placed Daniel in the unique position to
further advance the plan of God for Israel. He was truly a man for the
crisis. Throughout monumental adversity Daniel never once wavered
from divine viewpoint. His life exemplified that any believer armed
with Bible doctrine in the soul can do the extraordinary in the midst
of human disaster.

The Word

Canonicity
Vividly describes the divine inspiration that produced the Bible.
As the revelation of God, the Bible is the most widely read, most
influential, and  most enduring  book ever published. Canonicity
answers many  perplexing questions: How was the  Bible preserved
through the centuries? Is the Apocrypha actually a part of the Word?
What about the Dead Sea Scrolls? For the student of Bible doctrine, a
knowledge of  the historical formation of the Word of God is  a source
of strength to defend  against the numerous attacks upon the authenticity
and authority of the Bible.

In The Future

Armageddon

On  a day yet future, Israel will be the focal point of the last,
most  terrifying conflagration  the world has  ever  seen. Arm-
ageeddon  is truly the war to end all wars! Because of the unique
promises of God to Israel, Satan has sponsored hostility toward the
Jews throughout history. In a final act of malevolence, he brings to-
gether four great, satanically- inspired, gentile empires to annihilate
this  tiny nation. Israel is surrounded, cut  off, caught in a hopeless
military  situation by  these vast  armies. The Jews  have only one 
salvation. Their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, will return to earth
to fight for them. In triumph He will defeat the forces arrayed against 
Israel, depose Satan as the ruler of this world, establish His millennial
kingdom, and fulfill His covenants with Israel.

History--They Will Survive

Anti-Semitism

Is a masterstroke of treacherous evil. Endless Jewish persecutions
verify Satan-inspired antagonism toward God's elect people. History
authenticates the devastating effect of such virulent bigotry, while the
biblical portrayal of this heinous intolerance presents the divine per---
spective and solution. Old and New Testament passages outline the plan
of God for the Jew throughout human history. In the unconditional
covenants to Israel, God guarantees that the Jew will survive despite 
cruel treatment. Therefore, He condemns anti-Semitism  as a con---
tradiction to His sovereign will and purpose. No one should ever be 
guilty of this insidious prejudice. Divine judgment and utter ruin are
the ultimate destiny of individuals or nations that practice anti- Semitism
in the past, present, and future.

Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more,

History And Prophecy

The Angelic Conflict
Rages around us, This is not a world war. This is a war
 beyond the world--an invisible warfare between the forces
of Satan and the forces of God. Long before  the advent of 
human  history, Satan arrogantly rebelled against his Creator.
He wanted to make  himself " like the Most High" and recruited
one-third of the angels to follow him. When God justly condemned
Satan and his fallen angels, Satan appealed the sentence--questioning
how a loving God could cast His creatures into hell. Planet Earth is now
the battleground where Satan seeks to prove the judgment unfair and foil
the execution of his sentence. Through the freewill decisions of mankind,
God proves to Satan His perfect justice and love again and again. As believers,
it is imperative we understand the spiritual warfare that surrounds us. Satan uses
every ruse at his command to derail and discredit those who are in Christ, but God 
has provided for our defense  an overwhelming advantage in a powerful suit of spiritual
armor. With it we can with stand the 'flaming missiles of the evil one' and become heroes
in the invisible war.

If you believe what you like in the Gospel and reject what you
do not like , it is not Gospel you believe, but yourself.

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
Your word, O Lord, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.
Psalm 119:18
