"Truth In Apostolic Stewardship Cures Canine Cognition"
2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
It is amazing how those who constantly quote this verse do not follow the one before it but are guilty of breaking it on a daily basis.
2Ti 2:14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, ( for this leads only ) but to the subverting of the hearers.
They who emphasize study of the written word in trying to comply with scripture are constant breakers of scriptures, and undermine the faith of many as that verse says.
The problem is that when they refer to study the word what it means to them is to study it from man's point of view and not the Throne of Grace. The Word of Truth initiates from the Throne. When the apostle talks about rightly dividing the Word of Truth, He is referring to Christ and not the text of the scriptures. This is why they constantly bicker over different meanings of the text. When you confuse these you are on your own foundation and not Christ's, privately interpreting scriptures on your own.
The study of the written letters the apostles wrote to the churches was meant to have as your reference point the "Foundation of Truth" from which they as Apostle's taught, and that they had personally set within them. For this is How Christ by the Spirit reveals Himself to those who diligently seek Him in truth not by private interpreting scriptures.
2Pe_1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
From this process, the "Foundation of Truth" would serve as the focal point of their study. So that when they studied their written letters, it would not be from the beastly nature of man's point of view, but studied by Foundation Truth as the fulcrum for their study. For the purpose, to continue the apostles thoughts of those letters as when they wrote them, to avoid detouring from the Spirit of Truth. This is how Christ stays centered in the study of the written word, and How Christ will be constantly observed, and how He only, will be the reflection of that verse of study. Private interpretation from one's point of view is avoided.
This method of exegesis ( interpretation of a scripture ) offends many people for they want their beastly brain to be front and center and do not want the brain of the natural man to exit from their own interpretation.
So they do private interpretation of scripture and as this word sounds exegesis, they exit Jesus from their own interpretation and continue to bicker and strive in their beastly nature about words to no profit.
Of Which this is a good test to see if your in the faith, if you constantly are striving about verses of scripture you my friend are not in the faith, for you are not reflecting on Christ. Worst yet, because your not reflecting on Truth you are not abiding in Him.
This kind of fallacy in interpreting scriptures by the fallen natural man is what I call the deadly virus of having "canine cognition". It attempts and concludes the interpretation of scripture from the natural rhythm of this world and not the rhythm of the Spirit in Truth. The beastly nature is front and center. What it interpreted was a "knowing" from the fallen nature, the old man, and what came out of it was corrupt knowledge, leaven knowledge, a perception of the beastly kind.
Many argue, "but we are new creatures in Christ and the Holy Spirit is our helper in the interpretation". Yet even as a new creature in Christ you can still resource the sinful nature if you do not know or have the parameters and restrictions God set forth in Christ by His New Covenant. There is a way that seems right to a man but then end thereof is being guilty of private interpretation, instead of the Truth that is in Christ.
The stewardship of apostles cures, "canine cognition" For it sets the Foundation of Truth in the believer for there to be no mistake on understanding scripture, for by it Christ is always referenced in Truth.
1Co_3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
Only on this foundation, does the seal of God stands sure, that the Lord knows who is on it and therefore knows those who are His, this is how he makes the distinction.
1Co_3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Understanding scripture without Foundation Truth will not protect you against the wiles of Satan and the deception of the Spirit of Antichrist.
Rather standing on the wrong foundation will enable seducing spirits to complete their seduction of you, by having you, even in your zeal toward God, represent and look more like the face of Satan. Who stands independent of God, and has His doctrine separate from the doctrine of Christ, and His foundation set apart from the Foundation of Truth that is given by the grace of God to the apostles office, so as to have it set in you, and within His church.

|Paul Planted Apollos Watered- I Planted my Own Garden|
|Ever since God called upon Adamites to be responsible to His covenant He selected individuals to represent His kingdom. It is simple to understand that even though His choice of servants may possess frailties as Samson, David, Jephthah, Gideon and others in the book of Hebrews 11, yet God has always supervised the direction and substance of faith. It is a marvel to see how the Lord navigates around the standards of the gainsayers and makes the wisdom of man foolish. Satan knows that without stewardship the church has no eyes to see nor understanding of the order of His kingdom. more...|

|When The Imagination Becomes Your Priesthood|
|Beware of the snares of the imagination Satan uses to feed the soul folly to fight the plan of God today. When religious people use the scales of the flesh to measure truth, the feelings about truth will always shift into the gears of their own logic. Such a perception will stand opposed to the kingdom of God and the spirit of the Pharisee will emerge again to smite Christ and mock His plan. The imagination muses in wonder and will perish in the application as the fowls of the air will devour the Word they hear but not assess as the true peril of great price. more...|
|Remembrance: Dead Faith and Careless Revelations|
|The torment of unbelief causes withdraw from His grace to set a different pattern for the Christian walk. This contrariness will resist the oversight of government in the fear of losing their own free-will of doctrinal choice and practice. When God communicates in dreams and visions to correct or circumcise corrupt traditions these not functioning inside the House of God will use revelations to the point of fables to justify their independent position severed from the true Vine our Lord Jesus Christ. In this state they are not keeping in remembrance those godly admonitions of the stewardship and will fall away not from their traditions but from His sanctification which will blot out their names from the book of Life. more...|
