SPIRITUAL POSTURING

INTRODUCTION: THE PROPHET ISAIAH (THE LORD SAVES) WAS AMONG THE MOST PROLIFIC OF THE MAJOR PROPHETS. HE EXPERIENCED THE COLLAPSE OF THE NORTHERN KINGDOM ISRAEL, AND THE SOUTHERN KINGDOM, JUDAH. HE LIVED UNTIL ABOUT 681 B.C. THIS STUDY SPEAKS TO SPIRITUAL POSTURING.

SPIRITUAL INSIGHT: ISAIAH 26: 18 (NKJV) WE HAVE BEEN WITH CHILD, WE HAVE BEEN IN PAIN; WE HAVE, AS IT WERE, BROUGHT FORTH WIND; WE HAVE NOT ACCOMPLISHED ANY DELIVERANCE IN THE EARTH, NOR HAVE THE INHABITANTS OF THE WORLD FALLEN.

ISAIAH 26: 18 (THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE) WE HAVE BEEN WITH CHILD, WE HAVE BEEN WRITHING AND IN PAIN, WE HAVE AS IT WERE BROUGHT FORTH ONLY WIND. WE HAVE NOT WROUGHT ANY DELIVERANCE IN THE EARTH, AND THE INHABITANTS OF THE WORLD (OF ISRAEL) ARE NOT YET BORN.

SPIRITUAL POSTURING DOES NOT RECOGNIZE GOD’S ABSOLUTE JUSTICE. DEUTERONOMY 32: 4 (NKJV) HE IS THE ROCK, HIS WORK IS PERFECT; FOR ALL HIS WAYS ARE JUSTICE, A GOD OF TRUTH AND WITHOUT INJUSTICE; RIGHTEOUS AND UPRIGHT IS HE.

GOD, THROUGH HIS DIVINE LAWS, REWARDS OBEDIENCE AND PUNISHES DISOBEDIENCE.

SPIRITUAL POSTURING FAILS TO ACKNOWLEDGE GOD’S ABSOLUTE WISDOM. PSALMS 147: 5 (NKJV) GREAT IS OUR LORD, AND MIGHTY IN POWER; HIS UNDERSTANDING IS INFINITE.

THE TRUE SEAT OF WISDOM IS IN GOD. IF YOU EARNESTLY WANT TO KNOW HOW TO LIVE, LOOK TO GOD IN HIS W-O-R-D.

SPIRITUAL POSTURING DOES NOT ACKNOWLEDGE GOD’S ABSOLUTE SOVEREIGNTY. READ PSALM’S 93: 1-2

GOD IS SUPREME IN SOVEREIGNTY AND AUTHORITY. NO OTHER AUTHORITY IS HIGHER. EVERY KNEE WILL ULTIMATELY BOW TO THAT AUTHORITY.

APPLICATION: SPIRITUAL POSTURING WORKS AGAINST GOD’S JUSTICE, WISDOM AND SOVEREIGNTY, PRODUCING NOTHING!
