Prov 28:13, He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.

DoxologyPraise God, from whom all blessings flow;Praise Him, all creatures here below;Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.Amen.

Prov 3:5,Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.

Proverbs 11 OutlineBusiness dealings related to: Vs. 1-8, Integrity.Vs. 9-14, Speech. Vs. 15-23, Wisdom. Vs. 24-26, Giving. Vs. 27-32, Motivation.

Blessings vs. Divine discipline by association related to speech in business.Pt. 4

Prov 11:11, links the welfare of people inhabiting a certain location to their moral values, in this case regarding sins of the tongue versus honesty and integrity in speech in business.

If a majority of the people are operating in righteousness the city is exalted, if the majority are operating in sin, (e.g., sins of the tongue), the city is destroyed.

Doctrine of the Pivot5. Pivot versus Power Politics

The satanic system for problem solving on earth is to use human power motivated by arrogance and selfrighteousness.

Using human power to solve collective problems is called Power Politics.

It is man trying to solve all the problems of life with human systems, power, resources and assets, rather than trusting in God and making decisions from the strength of Bible Doctrine in the soul.

The mature believer recognizes he can not solve his own, nor the problems of his society by his own human power and resources.

He recognizes the power of God and His Word to solve his own and collective problems. He utilizes Pivot Politics as the solution to collect problems.

Two approaches to problem solving on a national scale: Power and Pivot Politics.

Power Politics uses peace and love propaganda to achieve its goals and if that does not work they resort to violence, tyranny, terror, and revolution to achieve their ends.

They operate on emotion rather than thinking from Bible Doctrine in the soul, which causes them to stop thinking because big brother will take care of all their needs.

Pivot Politics includes regeneration, advance in the Plan of God through PMA of Bible doctrine, attaining maturity, and becoming part of the pivot which preserves a locale.

Pivot Politics adheres to principles of freedom and advocates the function of the Laws of Divine Establishment in the national entity.

Historical crisis clarifies the difference between Power Politics and Pivot Politics.

In Power Politics the crisis is intensified by irrationality, confusion, and violence.

Pivot Politics prepares the mature believer for the crisis through PMA of B.D. and the FaithRest Drill.

FRD = claiming promises, reverse concentration and coming to doctrinal conclusions. Cf. Acts 12:1-19; 16:22-34.

Power Politics represents collective human viewpoint. Its approach to crisis includes alliance and compromise with evil, the welfare state, communism and terror.

Yet, Pivot Politics represents personal solution to disaster through personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Cf. Mat 26:51-52

Grace glorifies God; change glorifies man. We need unchanging Bible doctrine for the changing world.

Power Politics uses human good to produce evil,Eph 4:17-19. Pivot Politics uses Bible doctrine to produce Divine good, Rom 8:35-39.
