Doctrine of Betrayal
9. The 10 Problem Solving Devices for protection or recovery from betrayal.
B. The Believer's Protection and Recovery through the 10 Problem Solving Devices.
1) Rebound - The confession of our sins 2) Filling of God the Holy Spirit 3) Faith Rest 4) Doctrinal Orientation 5) Grace Orientation 6) Personal Sense of Destiny 7) Personal Love for God the Father 8) Impersonal and Uncond. Love for Man 9) Sharing the Happiness of God 10) Occupation with the Lord Jesus Christ
7) Personal Love for God the Father (PLGF)
a) To the extent that you entertain bitterness as a result of betrayal or other adversities, you have no respect for God.
b) This includes fear, worry, anxiety, jealousy, guilt, vindictiveness, vilification, malice or revenge.
c) These are sins of irrationality, telling that you do not have respect for God, that destroy any possibility of fulfilling the spiritual life.
d) Irrational people do not love. Therefore, emotion plus arrogance combines to form the irrational dilemma of problem solving incompetence. 1 John 4:7-21
e) It begins with bitter reaction to betrayal leading to humanistic solutions to cover up the problem, typically through the frantic search for happiness.
This results in operation boomerang, in which your frantic search for happiness ends in greater frustration and unhappiness.
f) Arrogance plus emotion always results in the irrational dilemma of trying to solve a problem with a problem in the state of carnality. Rom 12:3; 2 Tim 3:4-5
This is the emotional dilemma of the inept or loser believer. 1 John 2:15
g) You cannot solve a problem with another problem. You can only solve a problem with a divine solution. Human solutions are no solutions. Heb 13:5
h) The divine solution is rejected because people want God to give them something to make them feel good.
i) The loser believer sees the problem. The winner believer sees the solution.
j) Human solutions listen to bad advice and rationalize the problem. If you rationalize the problem, you rationalize the solution.
A rationalized solution is therefore no solution and rejection of the divine solution.
k) Human solutions and divine solutions do not coexist in your spiritual life. 1 Cor 1:18-31
l) To reject the divine solution is to reject the God given spiritual mechanics of the Protocol Plan of God.
Any system of application of doctrine to experience which ignores or rejects PSDs distorts the truth and inevitably results in false doctrine.
m) When you use emotion to attempt to solve your problem, you have neutralized the PSDs.
God did not give us emotion, arrogance, or prayer as PSDs.
Metabolized Bible doctrine circulating in your soul through the filling of the Spirit is the only true source for application.
