Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Greek: By the “spiritual dice playing” of men in which they work around you with the goal of implementing the methodology of error
1Tim4:7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. Exercise thyself; Comes from the word for gymnastic which in turn comes from the word gymnos, which is defined as “being naked.” The practice in the days of Paul was for athletes to exercise almost naked so as to be unhindered as possible for vigorous training.
Mt 9:17 Neither do men put new (new in age) wine into old (old in age) bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new (new in age) wine into new (new as something never seen; a novelty) bottles, and both are preserved. A believer must become a novelty because his identity becomes something which he has never seen. Then can he be filled with the new in age.
Mark 1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth (He emphatically commands them) he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey ( the militarily subject themselves to Him) him.
Rom 1: 28 Because they did not like to acknowledge God in their thinking as someone that is more precious than the finest of metals after having an opportunity to do so, God pronounced their thinking as failing the test given to a fine metal, rendering their thinking unfit, and worthy to be cast away to do those things which are inappropriate.
The kingdom of God is taken by spiritual violence, and spiritually strong and forceful people must from moment to moment snatch, seize it, and take it away as a precious bounty. Matt 11:22
Of no account do I make my life or hold my life in honor, so that I may complete my course on the horse track on which I am racing upon with joy, and the ministry that I received from the Lord to testify fully and thoroughly of the glad tidings of the grace of God. Acts 20:24
Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren. “One accord”: The passion that a political party has as it strives to put one political candidate into office.
I persecute, pursue, and overtake, in hope that I can grasp, seize, and make my own, all of what is contained in what Christ originally grasped and seized me for. Philippians 3:12
1 Tim 6: 15 Which in His seasons will show with undeniable proof, the happy and the one and only Abler (Full of Ability) (Potentate), the King of the ones reigning and the Master of the ones mastering.
