2.0.0.2

Characteristics of

This Secret Bible Teaching are:

The whole of mankind

is not superior

to the parts

that make up mankind

= HUMAN BEINGS.

This subject

is indeed a most solemn one,

and none can fitly write

or preach on it

unless his own heart

is deeply awed by it.

This Secret Bible Teaching

that the

Entire Human Race of Mankind

  IS NOT

superior to the parts

THAT

“MANKIND is MADE UP of”

= HUMAN BEINGS

is not something

from which any man can detach himself

and expound on it

as though

he were not directly involved in it;

still less

as being a person from a higher level

looking down on those

whom he appears to be denouncing.

Nothing is more incongruous

and unbecoming

than for a young preacher

glibly rattling off passages of Scripture

which portray

his own vileness by nature.

These should be read or quoted

with the utmost gravity.

J. O. Philpot stated:

As no heart can sufficiently conceive,

so no tongue can adequately express,

the state of wretchedness and ruin

into which sin has cast guilty,

miserable man.

In separating

ALL of The HUMAN RACE

from God,

THE NATURAL STATE of SINFULNESS

into which

WE ARE ALL NATURALLY BORN

severed

ALL of US from the Only Source

of all Happiness and Holiness.

THIS

NATURAL STATE of SINFULNESS

into which

WE ARE ALL NATURALLY BORN

and that severed ALL of US

from the Only Source

of all Happiness and Holiness,

has ruined ALL of US body and soul:

Sin has filled the body

with sickness and disease;

and sin has defaced

and destroyed the Image of God

in which Man was Created.

OUR SIN NATURE

has made us love sin and hate God.

The Bible Doctrine of Total Depravity,

in which

The ETERNAL GODHEAD REVEALS

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

has a total

INABILITY to COME TO GOD

is a very humbling one.

The Bible Doctrine of Total Depravity,

in which

The ETERNAL GODHEAD REVEALS

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

has a total

INABILITY to COME TO GOD

is not “saying”

that man ‘leans to one side’

and ‘needs propping up’,

nor that he is ‘merely ignorant’

and ‘requires instructing’,

or that he is ‘run down’

and ‘calls for a tonic’;

but rather that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

is undone,

lost, Spiritually dead.

Consequently,

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN is

“without strength,”

as

The ETERNAL GODHEAD REVEALS

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

has a total

INABILITY to COME TO GOD

and is thoroughly

incapable of ‘bettering’ himself,

SPIRITUALLY.

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

is exposed to The Wrath of God,

and unable to perform a single ‘work’

which can find acceptance

with

The ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD.

Almost every page of the Bible

bears witness to this “Secret” Truth.

….

The WHOLE ETERNAL

Scheme of Redemption

and

The WHOLE COUNSEL

and

MANIFOLD WISDOM

of THE TRIUNE GODHEAD

takes this “Secret” for granted.

“Because the Invisible Things

of Him

from the Creation of the World

are clearly seen,

being understood

by the things that are Made,

even

His Eternal Power

and GODHEAD;

so that they

are without excuse:”

Romans 1:20

***

The ETERNAL PLAN of SALVATION

taught in the Scriptures

could have no place

on any other supposition

than this “Secret” that:

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

is exposed to The Wrath of God,

and

unable to perform a single ‘work’

which can find

SPIRITUAL ACCEPTANCE

with

The ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD.

The impossibility

of any man’s gaining

the Approbation of God

by ‘works of his own’

appears plainly

in the case of the rich young ruler

who came to Jesus Christ.

Judged by ‘human standards’,

the rich young ruler

who came to Jesus Christ

was a ‘model of virtue’

and ‘religious’ attainments.

Yet, like all others

who trust in ‘self-efforts’,

  this rich young ruler was ignorant of

The Spirituality

and

Strictness of God’s Law.

When Jesus Christ Put him to the test

his fair expectations

were blown to the winds

and

“he went away sorrowful”

(Matthew 19:22).

It is, therefore,

a most unpalatable Doctrine.

It cannot be otherwise,

for the unregenerate lost souls of men

love to hear of ‘the greatness’,

‘the dignity’, ‘the nobility of man’.

The natural man thinks highly of himself

and appreciates

only that which is flattering.

Nothing pleases him more

than to listen to what extols’ human nature

and ‘lauds’ the state of mankind,

even though it is in terms

which not only repudiate

the Teaching of God’s Word

but

are flatly contradicted

by common observation

and universal experience.

And there are many

who pander to him

by their lavish praises

of the Excellency of civilization

and

the steady ‘progress’ of the race.

Hence, to have the lie

given to the popular theory of evolution

is highly displeasing

to its deluded votaries.

Nevertheless, the duty of God’s servants

is to stain the pride of all Individuals

that man ‘glories’ in,

to strip him of his stolen plumes,

to lay him low in the dust before God.

However repugnant such teaching is,

TO THE NATURAL

FLESH of LOST PEOPLE

God’s emissary

must faithfully discharge his duty

“whether they will hear,

or whether they will forbear”

(Ezekiel 3:11).

This is no dismal dogma

invented by people

who think they are “following Jesus”

or something

that calls itself “a church”

in “the dark ages,”

but a Truth of the Holy Bible’s

The Doctrine of Total Depravity,

in which

The ETERNAL GODHEAD REVEALS

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

has a total

INABILITY to COME TO GOD.

George Whitefleld said,

“I look upon it

not merely as a doctrine of Scripture—

the great Fountain of Truth—

but a very fundamental Truth,

from which I hope God

will suffer none of you to be enticed.”

This Truth of the Holy Bible’s

Doctrine of Total Depravity

in which

The TRIUNE GODHEAD REVEALS

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

is exposed to The Wrath of God,

and

unable to perform a single ‘work’

which can find Acceptance

with

The ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD

is a ‘Secret” subject

to which Great Prominence

is Given in the Bible.

Every part of the Scriptures

has much to say

on the awful state of degradation

and slavery

TO THEIR SINFUL CONDITION

into which the fall has brought man.

The corruption, the blindness,

the hostility of all Adam’s descendants

to everything of a Spiritual Nature

are constantly insisted upon.

Not only is man’s utter ruin

fully described,

but also his powerlessness

to save himself from the same.

In the Declarations and Denunciations

of

the Old Testament Prophets,

and of

Jesus Christ and His Apostles,

the bondage of all men to Satan

and their complete impotence

to Turn to God for Deliverance

are repeatedly set forth-

not indirectly and vaguely,

but emphatically and in great detail.

This is one of Thousands of proofs

that the Bible

is not a human invention

but a communication

from the Thrice Holy Godhead.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

that the corruption, the blindness,

the hostility of all Adam’s descendants

to everything of a Spiritual Nature

 is a sadly neglected subject.

Notwithstanding the clear

and uniform Teaching of Scripture,

man’s ruined condition

and Alienation from God

are but feebly apprehended

and

seldom heard in the modern pulpit,

and are given little place

even in what are regarded

as the centers of orthodoxy.

Rather the whole trend

of present-day thought and teaching

is in the opposite direction,

and

even where the wholly unfounded

and wild rash guesswork

in “Darwinian” teachings

are stretched

to the limits of the sin-cursed mind,

to even be called, “hypothesis”,

has not been accepted,

its pernicious influences are often seen.

In consequence

of the guilty silence of the modern pulpit,

a generation of churchgoers has arisen

which is deplorably ignorant

of the Basic Truths of the Bible,

so that perhaps

not more than one in a thousand

has even a mental knowledge

of the chains of hardness

and unbelief

which bind the Natural heart,

or of the dungeon of darkness

in which they lie.

Thousands of “preachers”,

instead of faithfully telling their hearers

of their woeful state by Nature,

are wasting their time

by relating the latest news of the Kremlin

or of the development of Nuclear weapons.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

that

the corruption, the blindness,

the hostility of all Adam’s descendants

to everything of a Spiritual Nature

is, therefore, a testing doctrine,

especially

of the preacher’s soundness in the Faith.

A man’s orthodoxy on this subject

determines his viewpoint

on All Doctrines.

If his belief here is a Scriptural one,

then he will clearly perceive

how impossible it is

for men to ‘improve’ themselves—

and that

Jesus Christ

is their Only Hope.

He will know

that unless the sinner is

Born Again

there can be no Entrance for him

into the Kingdom of God.

When a person

or “preacher’s” belief is a scriptural one,

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN is

“without strength,”

and Understands

The ETERNAL GODHEAD REVEALS

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN

has a total

INABILITY to COME TO GOD

and is thoroughly

incapable of ‘bettering’ himself,

SPIRITUALLY,

then he will NOT ONLY

clearly perceive

how impossible it is

for men to ‘improve’ themselves—

that

Jesus Christ

is their Only Hope

AND

that unless the sinner is

Born Again

there can be no Entrance for him

into the Kingdom of God,

when a person

or “preacher’s”

belief is a scriptural one,

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN is

“without strength,”

they will NEVER

entertain the idea of

the fallen creature’s

“free will” to ‘attain goodness’.

  Any person or “preacher’s”

whose belief is a scriptural one,

that

EVERY INDIVIDUAL EVER BORN is

“without strength,”

will be preserved from many errors.

Andrew Fuller stated,

“I never knew a person

verge toward the Arminian,

the Arian, the Socinian,

the Antinomian schemes,

without first

entertaining diminutive notions

of human depravity

or blameworthiness.”

Said the well-equipped

theological instructor, J. M. Stifler,

“It cannot be said too often

that a false theology

finds its source

in inadequate views of depravity.”

THE BIBLE

“SECRET”

that the corruption, the blindness,

the hostility of all Adam’s descendants

to everything of a Spiritual nature

is a Doctrine of great practical value

as well as Spiritual importance.

The foundation of all true piety

lies in a correct view of ourselves

and our vileness,

and a Scriptural Belief in God

and His Grace.

There can be no Genuine

SPIRITUAL

Abhorrence or Repentance,

no real Appreciation

of the Saving Mercy of God,

no Faith in Jesus Christ,

without

a correct view of ourselves

and our vileness,

BEFORE

an ETERNALLY HOLY GODHEAD

and

a Scriptural Belief in God

and His Grace.

There is nothing like

a Knowledge of this Doctrine

so well calculated to undeceive vain man

and convict him of the worthlessness

and

rottenness of his own “righteousness”.

Yet the preacher

who is aware of the plague of his own heart

knows full well

that he cannot present this Truth

in such a way

as to make his hearers actually realize

and feel the same,

to help them stop being in love

with themselves

and to cause them

to forever renounce

all hope in themselves.

Therefore, instead of relying

upon his faithfulness

in presenting the Truth,

he will be cast upon God

to

APPLY THE TRUTH of GOD’S WORD

Graciously in Power

to those who hear him

and bless his feeble efforts.

Genuine

SPIRITUAL

Abhorrence or Repentance,

in the correct view of ourselves

and our vileness,

BEFORE

an ETERNALLY HOLY GODHEAD

and

a Scriptural Belief in God

and His Grace

WITH

REAL Appreciation

of the Saving Mercy of God,

and

SPIRITUAL

Faith in Jesus Christ,

is an exceedingly

illuminating Doctrine.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

that the corruption, the blindness,

the hostility of all Adam’s descendants

to everything of a Spiritual nature

may be a melancholy and humiliating one,

nevertheless, it throws a flood of light

upon mysteries

which are otherwise insoluble.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

that the corruption, the blindness,

the hostility of all Adam’s descendants

to everything of a Spiritual nature

supplies the key

to the Course of Human History,

and shows why so much

of Human History,

including “Religious History”

has been written in blood and tears.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET” 

supplies an explanation of many problems

which sorely perplex

and puzzle the thoughtful.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

reveals why the child is prone to evil

and has to be taught

and disciplined to anything that is good.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

explains why every improvement

in man’s environment,

every attempt to educate him,

all the efforts of social reformers,

are unavailing to effect any radical betterment

in his nature and character.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

accounts for the horrible treatment

which Christ met with

when He worked so graciously in this World,

and

why He is still despised

and rejected by men.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

enables the Christian himself

to better understand the painful conflict

which is ever at work within him,

and which causes him so often to cry,

“Oh, wretched man that I am!”

And, 

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

 is, therefore, a most necessary Doctrine,

for the vast majority of our fellowmen

are ignorant of it.

“Oh, wretched man that I am!”

IS A BIBLE

“SECRET”

God’s Servants

are sometimes thought

to speak too strongly

and

dolefully of the dreadful state of man

through his Apostasy from God.

The fact is that

it is impossible

to exaggerate in human language

the darkness

and pollution of man’s heart

or to describe the misery

and utter helplessness of a condition

such as the Word of Truth

describes in these solemn passages:

“But if our gospel be hid,

it is hid to them that are lost:

in whom the god of this world

( Satan )

has blinded the minds of them

which believe not,

lest the Light of

The Glorious Gospel of Christ,

Who is The Image of God,

should shine unto them”

(2 Corinthians 4:3A).

“Therefore they could not believe,

because He

( The TRIUNE GODHEAD )

has [judicially]

blinded their eyes,

and

hardened their heart;

that they

should not see with their eyes,

nor

understand with their heart,

and be converted,

and I should heal them”

( John 12:3940).

This is yet more evident

when we contrast the state of soul of those

in whom a Miracle of Grace is wrought;

“Through

The Tender Mercy of our God;

whereby

The Day-spring from On High

has Visited us,

To Give Light to them

that sit in darkness

and

in the shadow of death,

to Guide our feet

into The Way of Peace.”

Luke 1:7879.

THIS BIBLE

“SECRET”

is a salutary Doctrine—

one which God often Uses

to Bring men to their senses.

While we imagine that ‘our wills’

have ‘power’

to do what is ‘pleasing’ to God,

we never abandon dependence on self.

Not that a mere intellectual knowledge

of man’s fall and ruin

is sufficient to deliver from pride.

Only the Holy Spirit’s

SUPERNATURALLY

Powerful Operations

can Effect Sufficient

RENEWED, SPIRITUAL

Knowledge

AND

THE HOLY SPIRIT of GOD

is Pleased to Use

the Faithful Preaching of the Word

  to Effect Sufficient

RENEWED, SPIRITUAL

Knowledge,

to Deliver AN individual

FROM

THEIR PRIDE

in “THEMSELVES”,

TO

JESUS’ DEATH, BURIAL

and RESURRECTION

from The DEAD,

TO ACCOMPLISH

ETERNAL SALVATION

FOR THEIR

“WRETCHED SOUL”.

….

ONLY a real sense

of our lost condition

lays us in the dust before God.

The whole of mankind

is not superior to the parts

that make up mankind,

because they are all

individual “wretchedly”,

wicked, sin-cursed human beings,

IN THE SIGHT

of ALMIGHTY GOD.
