Supplement One

 

VERBS

In the Greek, verb tenses are most focused on action.

The action can be described as one of the following three.

 

1) Continuous (or ‘Progressive’) action.

2) Completed (or ‘Accomplished) action, with continuing and even eternal results.

3) Simple occurrence, without the notion of progress.

(This is sometimes referred to as ‘punctiliar’ action or a photograph on history’s timeline.

 

Punctiliar:                         Action that relates to a specific point in time. The photographic tense

Linear:                                Action that is in the progress of occurring

Perfected:                         Action that is both punctiliar and linear in nature. It can refer to action relating to a point in time, yet has results are in the progress of occurring, and can be eternal.

 

 

VERB TENSES

Present Tense

The present tense denotes a continuous kind of action. It displays action in progress and or in state of perseverance.

 

Imperfect

The imperfect tense demonstrates constant or linear action just like the present tense, but in the past. It always indicates an action constantly or repeatedly occurring in past time. It portrays the action as going on for some extended period of time in the past.

 

Aorist

The aorist is said to be a “simple incident, event or happening” without regard for the amount of time taken to accomplish the action. This tense is also referred to as the ‘punctiliar’ tense. I call it a photographic snapshot on history’s time line.

In the indicative mood the aorist tense represents action that occurred in the past time, often translated like the English simple past tense.

 

Future

Just like the English future tense, the Greek future tells about an anticipated action or a certain happening that will occur at some time in the future.

 

Perfect

The perfect tense is a combination of the aorist and present tense. It denotes a simple action occurring in the past, but with continuing results in the present, future and maybe for eternity.

 

Participles

A participle is regarded as a “verbal adjective”. It is frequently a word that ends with an “-ing” in English (such as “speaking,” “having,” or “seeing”).

It can be used as an adjective, in that it can modify a noun (or substitute as a noun), or it can be used as an adverb to further explain or define the action of a verb.

 

Infinitives

The Greek infinitive is the form of the verb that is usually translated into English with the word “to” attached to it, often used to complement another verb.

It can be used to function as a noun and is therefore referred to as a “verbal noun”.

 

 

VERBAL VOICES

Grammatical voices in the Greek indicate whether the subject is the performer of the action of the verb (active voice), or the subject is the recipient or receiver of the action (passive voice).

 

Active Voice

If the subject of or in the sentence is performing the action, then the verb is referred to as being in the active voice.

 

Passive Voice

If the subject of the sentence is being acted upon, then the verb is referred to as being in the passive voice.

 

Middle Voice

The Greek middle voice shows the subject acting in his own interest or on his own behalf, or participating in the results of the verbal action. The subject in the middle voice performs the action, so it’s reflexive in the sense that he performs the action to benefit himself, or back upon himself

 

 

VERBAL MOODS

The feature of the grammatical “mood” of a verb has to do with the statement’s relationship to reality.

The mood deals with the fact of whether the declared statement is actual or if there is only the possibility of its actual happening.

The indicative mood is the only mood conceived of as actual while with the other three moods (imperative, subjunctive, and optative) the action is only thought of as possible or potential.

We will not deal with the optative mood in this seminar, for its occurrences are relatively rare in the NT Greek.

 

Indicative Mood

The indicative mood is a statement of fact or an actual occurrence from the writer’s or speaker’s perspective.

Even if the writer is lying, he may state the action as if it is a fact, and thus the verb would be in the indicative mood.

it may be action occurring in past, present, or future time.

When used in the indicative mood, the present tense denotes action taking place or going on in the present time.

 

Imperative Mood

The imperative mood is a command or instruction given to the hearer, commanding the hearer to carry out or perform a certain action.

 

Subjunctive Mood

The subjunctive mood indicates probability or objective possibility. The action of the verb will possibly happen, depending on certain objective factors or circumstances, or on a person’s free will.

It is oftentimes used in conditional statements (i.e. ‘If…then…’ clauses) or in purpose clauses.

However if the subjunctive mood is used in a purpose or result clause, then the action should not be thought of as a possible result, but should be viewed as a definite outcome that will happen as a result of another stated action.

Every verb therefore has the three components of tense, voice and mood, affectionately termed, (T.V.M)

 

NOUNS

 

NOUN CASES

The term “case” refers to what is called substantives. These are nouns and pronouns and adjectives (including participles).

The cases categorize their association to other elements in the sentence.

Noun cases are formed by putting the ‘stem’ of the noun with an ‘ending’.

The case form is shown by the ending of the word.

There are five different case forms in Greek.

The five cases are Nominative, Genitive, Dative, Accusative and Vocative.

 

Nominative Case

A noun or pronoun that is the relationship of the subject of the sentence is always in the nominative case.

 

Genitive Case

The genitive is most often viewed as the case of possession.

In more technical terms one noun in the genitive case helps to qualify another noun by showing its “class” or “kind”.

The genitive case has more uses than most other cases, but in general a noun in the genitive case helps to limit the scope of another noun by indicating its “kind” or “class”.

 

Dative Case

The dative is the case of the indirect object, or may also indicate the means by which something is done, or the sphere or location of its origin.

It is used most often in one of three general classes: Indirect object, Instrument (means), or Location (in the sphere of.)

Most commonly it is used as the indirect object of a sentence.

It may also indicate the means by which something is done or accomplished; instrumental

Used as a dative of location, it can show the “place”, “time”, or “sphere” in which something may happen.

 

Accusative Case

This case is aptly described by its name.

It is the case the points the finger towards something, like one who has been accused. It defines the final objective, consummation or the goal of something.

The accusative case is the case of the direct object, receiving the action of the verb.

Like the other cases, the accusative has a wide variety of uses, but its main function is as the direct object of a transitive verb.

The direct object will most often be in the accusative case.

 

Vocative Case

The vocative is the case of direct address. It is used when one person is speaking to another, calling out or saying their name, or generally addressing them.

Access All Areas


There is excellent jazz group by the name of Spyro Gyra.

Their live album is called “Access All Areas”.

The word access is a fascinating one.

Everybody wants access to something.

Google dictionary defines it as the right to approach, enter a place, and have the opportunity to use or benefit from something.

 Eph 3: 12  in whom we have boldness and access in confidence through our faith in him.

God is a God of mega access, who wants people to access the things of His kingdom.

The trick is that God’s riches are unsearchable because they cannot be accessed through the physical senses.

God has hidden them since Adam and Eve disobeyed and gave us re access when Christ came.

When the age of sin was introduced, man lost access to the things of God in the Garden of Eden. This garden was a physical representation of a portion of heaven.

Love shares all good things with the one whom is loved.  Love that cannot be shared is not love.

Every object in the Garden of Eden was flawless in its function, incorruptible in its nature, and eternal in its duration.

It’s funny that the Garden where Adam and Eve were at was called Eden. The word hedonism comes from Eden and is the doctrine that pleasure and happiness is the highest good. Eden means pleasure.

God kicked out Adam and Eve because of sin, and the rest is history.

Eden represents God’s eternal mindset for created man.

Gen 2:16   Yahweh God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;

17  but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it; for in the day that you eat of it you will surely die.”

 God cannot give sinful human beings physical access to this heavenly place lest they access it in their sinful condition, corrupt its flawlessness by sin, and eat from the tree of life and become eternal sinners. What a dangerous position.

Thus God kicked Adam and Eve out from the Garden.

He also made it inaccessible by making it invisible so that corrupt men could not tamper with it for their own sinful purposes.

Can you imagine politicians having access into God’s invisible things?

When Christ came He gave man re access to all of these places, but only through Him and only by revelation. When He abolishes sin, access will come back through our physical senses but only in a sinless body.

God wants to give us access into all areas.

Jesus who has become all things, has become the access into all areas.

Not by might, not by power, but by His revelation.

Tofu


What is the Baptism of the Holy Ghost? It’s kind of like tofu. I will explain.

When John the Baptist baptized the Lord Jesus River for the repentance of sins, the Lord was submerged underneath the water. This act of submergence and His emerging out of the water had much more significance than the simple physical act of plunging into the waters of the Jordan.

Symbolically speaking, when the Lord was immersed in the water He portrayed the burying of humanity’s old life without God.

His coming up out of the water was symbolic of humanity coming forth out into a new life free from sin, to serve the living God.

In my case, days after being baptized into the Atlantic Ocean, I started to experience a freedom from sinful habits that I had not been able to until then. The simple act of submersion and emergence from those cold February waters had an influence or effect back on me.  The immersion and emergence from the waters had in a way set me free.

The baptism of in the Holy Spirit has the very same effect on us, just in a different dimension.

Mark 1:8  I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you (Immerse, and submerge you) with ( Greek grammar case of location. Not “with” but “in”; residing within a location, or a domain, world and its sovereignty) the Holy Ghost.

While John baptized INTO the water for the forgiveness of sins, the Lord Jesus baptizes INTO the Holy Ghost.  Why is the baptism in the Holy Spirit so important?

Mat 26:41  Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing,  (Greek: a “ready mind”)  but the flesh is weak.

The world of the Spirit is as that of a “continual ready mind” or a mind that is in perpetual state of readiness, while the world of the flesh is weak and infirm.

Biblical baptism entails the imbuement or submersion of one object into a second object. The submergence or immersion of the first item into a second item places the first item into the location or inside the world or domain where the second item resides.

Once within the sphere of the second item’s world, this latter one can now exercise its influence back upon the first one, even to the point of changing the first item to resemble it, by permeating it with its qualities and characteristics.

The effect of the second item working its effect and influence back through to the first item as it permeates it and changes it is called the instrumentality of the second object.

Galatians 3:27 tells us that we are located in the sphere of the world of Christ, so that Christ can work instrumentally back through us, by affecting us, to conform us to His image.

Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ(submerged into the domain, sphere, or world of Christ’s influence and sovereignty ) have put on Christ (now wear Christ, whom as clothes which totally cover us, influences and affects back through us to conform us into His image.)

I once read an excellent example of Biblical baptism.  In the days of Christ there was a recipe to create a “pickled” vegetable.  It was said that a vegetable was BAPTISED into THE LOCATION or SPHERE of a vinegar solution.  After a while, the vinegar WORKED INSTRUMENTALLY BACK through the vegetable and “pickled” it.

Tofu, likewise, acquires the taste and texture of any food that it is baptized into.  We can say that with whatever food the tofu is BAPTISED INTO, it is INSTRUMENTALLY influenced back by that food to make the tofu like it.

Every Christian Should Be An Entrepreneur


Why should I sign up for government health insurance? The web site and state exchanges are plagued with massive security breaches, information and data misallocations and personal data sharing without my permission. Give me a good reason.

“Going the extra mile can give you insight and a good reputation, both of which attract opportunity. Many obvious opportunities are found in places no one else has bothered to venture. If you put in the extra effort to make a good project an even better one, or you get to know your equipment better than anyone else on your shift, you will see things others overlook and be in a position to make use of them. Leaders who need a job done think first of people they know who will do it well. If other people respect you for the quantity and the quality of your work, you will find yourself advancing past others who regard their jobs as drudgery. For all the extra service that you’ve rendered, you’ll find yourself more than amply compensated by opportunities others never grasp.” Napoleon Hill Foundation

“Accountability is about release, not restraint. When we set people free, the liberty and support we provide should cause self-discipline. Self-control is the only acceptable form of control in the church.” Graham Cooke

“It is a peculiarity of human relationships that it is virtually impossible for one individual to have a lasting positive influence upon members of a group of negative thinkers. Usually, it works the other way. You cannot maintain a positive, productive attitude if you spend all your time with negative people. Those who have wrecked their own lives (and usually blame their misfortune on others) are not the kind of people who will help you achieve success in your own life. Choose your friends and associates carefully, and refrain from complaints about your job, your company, or any individual. Spend your time with positive, ambitious people who have a plan for their lives. You will find that their optimism is infectious.” Napoleon Hill Foundation

“Surplus wealth is a sacred trust which its possessor is bound to administer for the good of the community.”  Dale Carnegie

Motivation is the art of getting people to do what you want them to do because they want to do it. Dwight D. Eisenhower

Castro redesigned prayer. Beware of those who want to take Christ out of Christmas. They are not really offended. It’s an agenda of secularism. Jesus said that you will know them by the products of their lives. Jose Alvarez

#1. Keep the big picture in mind. There are always opportunities and possibilities, and thinking too small can negate a lot of them.

#2. Keep your momentum. Without momentum, a lot of great ideas go nowhere.

#3. Look at the solution, not the problem. Learn to focus on what will give results.  Donald J. Trump

An entrepreneur is a disrupter of the status quo. Jose Alvarez

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. ~Leonardo da Vinci

Great leaders are great risk takers. They do it by themselves but we do it by the voice of the Spirit. The greatest risk taker was God who risked His only begotten son for humanity’s eternal salvation. Without risk and getting out of your comfort zone, you will not reach God’s destiny for you.  Jose Alvarez

To live, think and act like Jesus is the singularly most important thing to do on planet earth. Yet, it’s also the hardest. No man has ever come close to the entrepreneurial abilities of Jesus. No man has ever come close to thinking out of the box like He does. Jose Alvarez

You will never experience how much God loves you, until you repent fully from every known sin. Unrepentance in any area, keeps an open door to the demonic placed over you. The attack of the demonic, competes with the love of the Lord, and hinders you from knowing that love.  Jose Alvarez

The greatest entrepreneur in history is Jesus. His ideas went beyond Steve Jobs. He brought new electronics, but Jesus, a new human race.  Jose Alvarez

The greatest and most successful people and you and I have exactly the same commodity. 24 hours in a day. The difference between them and us is their ability to use this commodity more wisely.  Jose Alvarez

For me the hardest thing, and what I’ve failed most at, is daily obtaining from the Lord, first in the Spirit, to then see it in the natural. My life has been plagued with double mindedness which has caused many lost opportunities to obtain by faith. This is so important that Paul dedicates Roman Four to it. Yet, I can’t regret the past, but learn from it, and know that God is the God if the umpteenth chances.  Jose Alvarez

Rom 4:3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

A great definition of counted or reckoned from Bakers NT Commentary

To obtain something that you did not previously have. The sign of true faith then is the ability to obtain something that you did not have. With great faith one should be daily obtaining new things from God. I have not done that but am pressing into it. Faith obtains clearly in the Spirit before having it in the natural.  Jose Alvarez

“When you focus your self-discipline on a single purpose, like sunlight through a magnifying glass on a single object, look out! The whole world will scramble to get out of your way, hold the doors open for you, and salute as you walk by.” Dan Kennedy. Entrpreneur.Com.

It is possible to go through life without ever accepting any responsibility, but such freedom from the cares of the world comes at an enormous financial cost. If you make it a practice to go out the back door when responsibility walks through the front, you will also miss out on the opportunities that always accompany responsibility. In almost any vocation, profession, or calling, your remuneration is directly proportional to the responsibility that accompanies your position. Make it a practice to volunteer for more responsibility or simply to assume it. There are times when you must get on with the task at hand without ever being formally told you’re in charge of it. If you demonstrate that you are a can-do kind of person, responsibility and the higher pay that accompanies it will come to you.  Napoleon Hill Foundation

“A religious spirit creates a poverty mindset. A poverty sprit is not about economics, it’s about living with meager possibilities. It’s about not understanding your real identity in Christ.”  Graham Cooke

Political correctness is proof that stupidity is contagious.  Bill Johnson

The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do!  Steve Jobs

“At Healing Waters, you gave me a few prophetic words along the lines of a new season coming my way and to be in expectancy and waiting for a surprise and how it was going to be joyous etc. Two months after this pic was taken i moved to the mountains of southwest VA and started working full time in ministry (which I had NO idea was going to happen). I have to say – the Lord really used you to confirm what was about to happen and to encourage me and increase my faith!! Those times in that basement were amazing!!! i just wanted to say thank you for your obedience in doing what you do – because it makes a lasting impact on lives as it did on mine!!!  A message to me from my friend Sarah Elizabeth Berrios

No one can make you feel inferior unless you give them permission. Lolly Daskal

No one is too busy, it’s only a matter of priorities.  Steve Jobs

Carve out daily time to think, and dream with God’s mind and His ideas for you. Taken by a talk from Noreena Hertz

Armor


Eph 6:10  Finally, my brethren, be strong (constantly strengthened with dunamis power) in the Lord, and in the power ( dominion) of his might ( inward strength).

11  Put on the full armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the stratagems of the devil.

This verse commands us to continuously receive this dunamis power of the Lord so that He can be progressively revealed in our lives as the Christ that dwells in our hearts. This is the fullness of revelation.

The dunamis power of the Lord in verse 10 is defined as the display of the Lord’s outward dominion brought about by His inward strength.  This is what it means by “ the power of his might.”  This is sort of what happens to Pop Eye when he eats the can of spinach.  The tremendous inward strength that is multiplied within him is translated into a manifestation of outward strength which caused him to dominate and conquer all, even Bluto the bad man, who ran after beautiful Olive Oil.

This domination of external circumstances is called “dominion” and is in indeed the same as Lord’s dominion over all His creation.

The Lord’s dominion or manifested expression of the strength that resides within Him is found in His dunamis power. The extent of the Lord’s dominion that is transported by his dunamis power is His ability to subdue all things unto Himself.

Philippians 3:21  Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

The amount of God’s dunamis power working in us is measured as to how much we are allowing the Lord to subdue or bring the dominion of all things unto Himself.

The fullness of revelation of the Son is the fullness of the Lord’s power.  The fullness of revelation is the Christ dwelling, and not struggling, or competing with something else in our hearts.

The more that we live out of the dunamis power of the Lord because we have yielded our life in all meekness to the Lord the more that we shall see the Lord subdue all things underneath our feet.

This is the reality of our putting on the full armor of God.

Targeted Faith


“As” Thou Hast Believed

Matthew 8:13  And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

Matthew 15:28  Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

The word “as” has a powerful connotation in New Testament scriptures.  It is defined by some of the following: As, like, even as, just like, in the same manner, and a carbon copy of.

In Matthew eight and thirteen, Jesus in fact tells the centurion, that in the very specific thing that he has targeted his belief for, that very targeted thing he will receive.

When we ask in Jesus’ Name, our request must be very specifically targeted to what we want. Any specific point that we target our request for, believing, which is void of the two types of doubting taught above, we will receive as a specific carbon copy or reduplication of what we requested. The specific thing that we ask for believing is the specific thing that we receive.

Matthew 9:29  Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.( LET IT BECOME OR BE CREATED FOR YOU)

In Matthew nine and twenty-nine the “according to your faith” is very similar to the word “as”. In other words we will receive from the Lord in proportion to our faith.  Receiving is a matter of degrees. The more is the proportion of our faith, to believe without doubting, the greater will be the proportion of our receiving.  Our faith, or lack thereof, directly limits what we will receive or not receive from the Lord.

We must be careful to target our belief in the scope of what the Name of Jesus promises to us and ask with a faith that is great enough to leave no room for doubt.  We receive only what we specifically target for, and what is targeted for we will be received in equal proportion to the greatness of our faith.

Fruit Bearing


Col 1:5  For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel;

Col 1:6  Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:

These are remarkable scriptures. They tell us much of how we should live as believers, as well as manage our local assemblies.

The gospel, in its written “logos” form, and through the spoken “rhema word” is a fruit-bearing dynamo.  Fruit bearing in the kingdom of God is made up of two dynamic features.  God always begins by working first in our spirits, and outward to our bodies, bringing spirit, soul, and body into the loving subjection of His voice. The word of God has the dynamic ability to first work inwardly in each of us, sanctifying us and filling us with God’s presence.

The infilling of God’s presence through His word then works outwardly to produce our spiritual gifts and ministries and compels us to go into all of the world for Christ’s sake. This is the two fold fruit bearing operation of the Word of God.

Fruit bearing through the word of God must meet two requirements if its two fold dynamic power is to be functional in us.  The end of verse six in Colossians says, “and knew the grace of God in truth:” The word “knew” is the Greek word “epiginosko”.  This word describes knowledge, which probes, and is thorough, accurate, and complete. So much so that this type of knowledge transforms us.

Of course, we won’t attain to a full knowledge of the things of God until we end up in eternity.  But our earthly motivation should be ever to grow more and more into this accurate, thorough, knowledge of God.

Secondly, is the word “truth”. The Greek word “aleithia” or truth, describes what is genuine, accurate, and in accordance with facts.  We must so know the word of God to comprehend fully the facts about God. We must quarry the gold mines of the gospel deeply to know accurately and comprehensively the genuineness of the things of God.  For us to benefit from the dynamic fruit bearing qualities of the gospel we must know it in full knowledge and truth.

God will not free us if what we think to be truth, is not. Our opinions are not worth a hill of beans if they don’t line up with the word of God.

Many teachings today are based on opinions and not the truth of the Bible.

They will do little in your life, and lead into greater error.
