Obstructions to Divine Good

NEW Memory Verse:
2 Tim 2:4, “No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life,
so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.”

Discourse; John 13-16, Pt 445

John 15:18-21
Obstructions to Divine Good Production, Pt. 26

John 15:18-21, Obstructions to Divine Good Production
Reason #1: Satan’s Cosmic System hates the believer!
Reason #2: We are not of this world-Election out from the World!
Reason #3: “The servant is not greater than his Lord,” therefore we too will have persecutions!
Reason # 4 – John 15:21:“The Cosmos does not know God and is ignorant to His Plan.”

John 15:21, “But all these things, (persecutions), they will do to you all for the sake of My name. Because they inherently do not know the One (God the Father) who sent Me.”

            b. The Bible was inspired by God the Holy Spirit 2 Sam 23:2; Acts 28:25; 2 Tim 3:16, and is revealed / taught to man by the Spirit, John 16:13; 1 Cor 12:8; Eph 6:17; 2 Peter 1:20-21.

2 Sam 23:2, “The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me, and His word was on my tongue.”

2 Tim 3:16-17, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.”

“Inspired by God” is the Greek word THEOPNEUSTOS which comes from THEOS that means God and PNEUMA that means breath or spirit. Literally it is “God-breathed”, (i.e. inspired by God.) PNEUMA is used in the New Testament for the Holy Spirit, therefore it is the Holy Spirit who has inspired the writers of the New Testament to write the Word of God. This is called “Verbal Plenary Inspiration of the Scripture.”

            13. All positions of human authority have been established by the Father, Rom 13:1-4.

14. God the Father will resurrect all of mankind. It is recorded of both the Father and the Son in, John 5:21 “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom He wishes.
