First Fruits Beliefs

An attempt to reconcile different views that people argue about in Biblical Doctrine based on an in depth study of the Scriptures.

Our goal should be to rightly divide the Word of Truth similar to the way of the 1800’s Biblical writers.

try to do the following
Try to do the following:
  • Keep an open mind, and be teachable!
  • Read the scripture exactly without any prior conviction leading you.
  • Remember that the Bible, being God’s Word, has no conflict in it. It is just that we do not yet fully understand the truth.
remember
Remember!
  • The Holy Bible is not a dinner buffet. We cannot reject any part of it based on our paradigms.
  • As Christians we must strive to understand the Bible, including all of the things that appear to conflict with other.
  • The harmony of the Bible is a fact, but perseverance in study is necessary for us to gain essential knowledge to resolve items that we think conflict with each other.
what is the christian s mission
What is the Christian’s Mission?
  • 2Ti 2:15* Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
the christian must understand
The Christian Must Understand:
  • I Cor. 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
  • We should therefore know that the lost do not have access to the understanding of God’s Word.
  • One reason why is as follows.
so what is the reason
So What is the Reason
  • Ro 12:3* For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
  • Therefore, only believers have the measure of faith, ala, the gift of the spirit. I feel no unbeliever can understand God’s Word.
meat in due season
Meat In Due Season
  • Mt 24:45* Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
  • Lu 12:42* And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

Your relationship with Christ will never be any greater than your relationship with His Word!

a warning from god
A Warning from God
  • Hosea 4:6 ¶ My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
  • A fact for the Jew, an application for the Christian.
items considered
Items Considered
  • Comparison of God, Man & Satan.
  • Concept of man’s spirit, soul and body.
  • Predestination.
  • The three aspects of salvation.
  • Calvinism versus Arminianism. Again, both points of view use Scripture to back them.
scriptures about god
Scriptures About God
  • John 4:24 God is a Spirit, and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
  • I believe this is in reference to God the Father.
scriptures about man
Scriptures about man
  • Ge 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
  • Ge 1:27 So God created man in his ownimage, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
spirit versus soul
Spirit versus Soul
  • Ro 11:6* And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
  • 2Ti 1:9* Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
do you believe that jesus the son of god was and or will
Do you believe that Jesus, The Son of God Was and/or Will:
  • Born of a virgin. God the Son came to earth?
  • Witnessed upon the earth for 42 months?
  • Died for the sins of the called and chosen?
  • Rose on the third day to return to heaven to prepare a place for the chosen and called?
  • Will return again to claim his birthright, the earth, and destroy Satan and his angels?
  • Will judge mankind and renew the earth to its former state before sin was introduced into the world.?
about predestination
About Predestination
  • Eph. 1:4* According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
  • 5* Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
  • 6* To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
predestination
Predestination
  • A fact that cannot be ignored, if you study the Bible faithfully.
  • John 17:6* ¶ I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
  • John 18:9* That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.
  • There are at least 3 pages of scriptures speaking to this subject.
predestination20
Predestination
  • Romans 8:28* And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
  • 29* ¶ For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
predestination21
Predestination
  • Romans 8:30* Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
  • 31* ¶ What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
  • What is missing from verse 30? Obviously sanctification. It is our job.
predestination22
Predestination
  • Romans 8:32* He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
  • 33* Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
facts of spirit soul salvation
Facts of Spirit + Soul Salvation
  • Jesus death on the cross was a perfect work. Every one that the Father gave him will be saved by God’s Grace.
  • Man, once his spirit is saved , is forever saved. Hence, Once saved, always saved.
  • Man must kill his own soul and do works to save his soul. The reality of backsliding. Destroy our flesh nature.
spirit salvation scriptures
Spirit Salvation Scriptures
  • Eph 2:8* For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Soul Salvation Scriptures
  • 1Thessalonians 5:23* And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

soul salvation scriptures27
Soul Salvation Scriptures
  • Philippians 2:12* ¶ Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
  • Since this verse is written to the Philippian Church, why are they warned to work out their salvation with fear and trembling?
  • Are they not saved by grace?
  • What salvation is Paul speaking of?
soul salvation scriptures28
Soul Salvation Scriptures
  • 1 Cor. 3:11* ¶ For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
  • 12* Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
  • 13* Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is.
soul salvation scriptures29
Soul Salvation Scriptures
  • Romans 11:6* And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

  • 6* And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
  • 7* Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
  • 8* And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
slide32
9* But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
  • 10* And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
slide33
11* Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

  • 9* Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
