Christian's Handbook 3

Handbook 3 shares a Christian's personal experiences while being led out of the "organized visible church" by the Holy Spirit.

The Way of God's Judgments

Handbook 3: Article 53 - Spiritual Warfare

Where to begin? Bringing every thought captive to the obedience of Christ!

Jesus and God's judgments:

"I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me."

John 5:30

A simpler definition: All spiritual warfare is based on what we "see" God doing -- what He has bound or loosed.

Besides Jesus we have examples of those to whom God revealed what He was doing.

"Surely the Lord God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants, the prophets."

Amos 3:7

"And the Lord said, 'Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do?'"

Genesis 18:17

"The counsel of the Lord is for those who fear Him...
My eyes are continually toward the Lord..."

Psalm 25:14, 15

Is He saying this to me?

"'You are my witnesses,' declares the Lord,
'And My servant, whom I have chosen...'"

Isaiah 43:10

And this?

"I am making Myself known to you..."

The Revelation, Handbook 2

And is He also granting me the authority and power to pray in Him name?

"He called the twelve together and gave them power and authority..."

Luke 9:1

If so:

My eyes must be continually toward the Lord to see what He will say to me. (Handbook 2, Article 8)

And perhaps I can go with Him this time to "intercede."

The following Scripture bears repeating:

"In that day the Lord of hosts will become a beautiful crown
And a glorious diadem to the remnant of His people;
A spirit of justice for him who sits in judgment,
A strength to those who repel the onslaught (Lit. battle) at the gate."

Isaiah 28:5, 6
