The truth enables the Christian lifestyle to function


The first type of repentance is a synonym for faith in connection with salvation. A change in mental attitude about the person and work of Christ equals repentance in connection with salvation.

The second type of repentance is rebound, changing our thinking to agree with God’s verdict concerning our sins. We embrace the experiential forgiveness God freely provides.

Point 7. The third type of repentance in the Church age believer’s life is the turning away from human viewpoint (lies, evil) and turning toward divine viewpoint (grace and truth), resulting in living a new life of fellowship with the Trinity.

What do you think of the truth?

“The way" refers to the entrance into the plan of God.
"The truth" refers to what we learn after we enter into the plan of God.
"The life" is the function that comes from truth or doctrine.

Salvation repentance is an open door that leads to the way.

Rebound repentance is an open door that leads to the truth.

Maturity repentance is an open door that leads to the life.

9. In His love, God always reveals grace and mercy with His truth, 2PE 3:18.

2PE 3:18
but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

10. It is also truth which cleanses us and purges us from sin,
JOH 15:3 "You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you"

JOH 17:17
"Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth."

11. Without truth it is impossible to worship God properly.

2TI 2:15
Study to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth.

12. Truth always prevails and is a direct enemy of the kingdom of darkness.

2CO 13:8
For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.

2TH 3:1
Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord may spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you;

PSA 56:4; PSA 56:10
In God, {whose} word I praise, In the Lord, {whose} word I praise,

JOH 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

JOH 1:14
And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

REV 19:13
And He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood; and His name is called The Word of God.

The Truth leads to the Christian lifestyle.

This is why TLJC said in JOH 14:6 "I am the way [entrance], and the truth [doctrine], and the life;

We have two Greek words found in the New Testament:

1. zoe, from which we get zoology
2. bios, from which we get biology.

Zoe refers to the super-grace life which is the objective of all doctrine.

The zoe life is God’s fantastic grace provision which is far beyond your desires and even even your most fervent prayers.

The "zoe" life is God’s fantastic grace provisions which are far beyond anything that you have ever asked God for or others for.

JOH 10:10
"The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have [zoe] life, and might have {it} abundantly.

The "zoe" life is also God’s fantastic grace provisions which are far beyond your fondest dreams.

The "zoe" life is the direct result of fulfilling the life beyond gnosis or knowledge.

The life beyond gnosis of EPH 3:19 is the means of entering the zoe life of EPH 3:20.

The life beyond gnosis or knowledge is the means of executing the PPOG, and the "zoe" life is the result of executing the PPOG.

a. He does infinitely more than all we ask, whether the asking is toward God in prayer, or toward man by request.

b. He does infinitely more than all we think or imagine, which is our personal desires, expectations, and our thoughts associated with happiness symbols.

Dreams can represent:
what we want to be,
what we want to have,
with whom we desire to associate,
to what we want to be promoted,
where we desire approval,
and where applicable, with whom we desire to marry.

COL 3:3
For you have died and your life [that is the zoe-life] has been hidden together with the Christ by means of the God.

The filling of the Holy Spirit,
Metabolized Bible doctrine circulating in the soul,
The ten problem solving devices,
The execution of the PPOG.
