  1. Consistently manifest the fruit of the Spirit, which is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
     
    By consistently taking in the Word of God and Bible Doctrine on a daily basis, we can expedite our growth to spiritual maturity, be continuously occupied with Jesus Christ [faith alone in Christ alone], and develop the capacity to continuously manifest the fruit of the Spirit.

We should aspire to reach spiritual maturity so that we may...

  1. Have a saturation of the Word of God and Bible Doctrine circulating in our soul to protect us from the onslaught of Satanic and false doctrines projected through human viewpoint thinking as we continue to live in the devil's world [cosmic system].
    "Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes [strategies] of the devil. For our struggle [our spiritual combat] is not against flesh and blood [against human beings], but against the rulers [highest ranking demon generals], against the powers [authorities of the demon officer corps], against the world forces of this darkness [demon ambassadors], against the spiritual forces of wickedness [the rank-and-file demons] in the heavenly places [the stellar universe, even heaven itself]. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day [this present age], and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." (Ephesians 6:10-17, NASB, emphasis added)

  1. Consistently reside inside the divine dynasphere [an invisible, spiritual sphere of divine power and protection energized and sustained by God the Holy Spirit] through which we may live the supernatural, unique Christian way of life.
     
    We initially enter into the divine dynasphere the moment we believe in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 3:16, 20). . . . At the moment we put our faith alone in Christ alone, God the Holy Spirit creates in us a human spirit for the imputation of eternal life (John 3:3-8). We are said to be "born again" (John 3:7) or spiritually regenerated (Titus 3:5), passing from spiritual death to spiritual life (John 3:6). We are reborn into the family of God (John 1:12) and become a child of God (Galatians 3:26). We are made righteous because of the work of Christ on the cross (Romans 3:21-22; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 3:9). We are made "a new creature" in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) and made eternally secure in Him (Romans 8:38-39). In addition, God the Holy Spirit places us inside of God's divine power system—the divine dynasphere. . . . We maintain our residency inside the divine dynasphere through rebound [private confession or acknowledgment of sins to God the Father] (John 15:9b-10), which restores the filling of the Holy Spirit [the power source that energizes and sustains the divine dynasphere]. Once inside the divine dynasphere, God the Holy Spirit supplies the divine power necessary for perception and application of the Word of God and Bible Doctrine to every circumstance of life.
    "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you." (Acts 1:8a, NKJV)
    In addition to the divine power and protection deployed by God the Holy Spirit for the Church Age believer living inside the divine dynasphere, God the Father has provided powerful assets called divine problem-solving devices to aid us in our execution of the unique Christian life. There are ten divine problem-solving devices: the first is rebound, which operates outside the divine dynasphere; the second is the filling of the Holy Spirit, which energizes and sustains the divine dynasphere; the remaining divine problem-solving devices operate inside the divine dynasphere—they include [in order]: the faith-rest drill, grace orientation, doctrinal orientation, a personal sense of destiny, personal love for God the Father, impersonal love for all mankind, sharing the happiness of God, and occupation with the Person of Jesus Christ. The ten divine problem-solving devices are the God-given means of accurate application of doctrine to experience. They prevent the inevitable outside pressures of adversity from overwhelming our soul. Operation of these devices begins with our recovery from carnality through rebound. Restored to fellowship with God our spiritual life is empowered for advance. As we acquire epignosis [precise and assimilated] knowledge, we incorporate the problem-solving mechanics for leading a life of meaning, purpose, definition, and fulfillment of God's plan. Whether surrounded by adversity or prosperity, we can solve every human problem by deploying the appropriate combination of these ten devices.
    "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." (2 Timothy 1:7, NKJV)

We should aspire to reach spiritual maturity so that we may...

  1. Have the capacity to execute the unique Christian way of life [the protocol plan of God] for the remainder of our postsalvation life.
     
    Our life as a mature believer is considerably enriched as we develop capacity at spiritual maturity to receive God's escrow blessings [temporal and eternal blessings in the form of material and spiritual blessings above and beyond eternal salvation and basic [logistical] grace provisions dispensed to the believer at spiritual maturity]. Our life as a mature believer is considerably enriched as we develop capacity at spiritual maturity to generate a maximum production of divine good [good works performed while under the filling of God the Holy Spirit]. Our life as a mature believer is considerably enriched as we develop capacity at spiritual maturity to further the plan of God in the course of human history [make a significant impact in time with eternal repercussions].
    "Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God" (Hebrews 6:1, NKJV)
     
    ". . . that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God." (Colossians 1:9b-10, NKJV)

We should aspire to reach spiritual maturity so that we may...

  1. Become an effective witness in the ongoing appeal trial of the angelic conflict.
     
    As the defendant and adversary in the litigation, Satan continues to accuse God of unfairness and continues to slander His character [essence]. As witnesses, we continue to defend God's prosecution testimony by providing undeniable evidence to Satan that God's character is perfect, that Satan's decision to go negative on his volition produced sin [imperfection], that Satan is fully responsible for his decision, that Satan is the author of sin [not God], that sin is an outrage and an offense to God, that sin carries the consequence of condemnation, and that God is perfectly just and righteous to condemn Satan to the lake of fire.
    "Do you not know that we shall judge angels?" (1 Corinthians 6:3a, NKJV)

  1. Receive the imperishable victor's crown at the Judgment Seat of Christ for being a good and faithful servant.
    "Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath [crown], but we an imperishable. Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified." (1 Corinthians 9:24-27, NASB)

  1. Have the opportunity to recline and dine with Jesus and the Patriarchs of Israel in the Millennial Kingdom.
    “I say to you that many will come from east and west, and recline at the table [share the banquet] with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 8:11, NASB, emphasis added)
    “He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” (Revelation 3:21, NASB)

We should aspire to reach spiritual maturity so that we may...

  1. Have a position of authority and place of rulership in the Millennial Kingdom.
    “He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations [Gentiles]; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to pieces, as I also have received authority from My Father.” (Revelation 2:26-27, NASB)

The end goal of spiritual maturity as a practical application in time is...

To enable us to live out the unique Christian way of life for the remainder of our life on the earth as we await the Rapture or Blessed Hope—the imminent coming of Jesus Christ to snatch us to heaven and to translate [convert] our mortal body to an immortal body before the coming seven-year Tribulation; this unique Christian life is lived in the divine dynasphere, which, through the enabling power and filling of God the Holy Spirit, we are able to consistently exhibit uninhibited confidence, absolute stability, and a genuine concern for others grounded on the authority and absolute objective truth of the Word of God.
 
Should Jesus come and the Rapture occurring after we have already physically died, [with the exception of the Rapture generation who will not experience physical death], our spiritual maturity may sustain us in physical death through the possession of dying grace whereby we are blessed with a completely relaxed mental attitude, freedom from fear, knowing with absolute certainty that we will be resurrected at the Rapture to an inheritance of a resurrection body and an eternal destiny with Christ.
