Gate 11 is resistance testing, stress and endurance tests that develop
and coordinate our spiritual love system's differing gates and courts together to handle the problems and difficulties of
life. Hebrews 10:36 through 12:7 and following describe this discipline as both parental training and gymnasium athletic training.
This way of describing resistance testing is symbolic of learning to face the hardships and tough choices of life using the
prior ten gates and courts of the divine love system Christ used and bequeathed to us.
Hebr 11:39&40: Having Old Testament Heroes who gained approval through
faith in promises at gate 7 who still await fulfillment of God's promises to them until we are first perfected that we might
be perfected together. Without us-the perfected, old covenant heroes lack completion. We then achieving and abiding at gate
12 are the reason for creation, including the moral dilemma.
12:1 For their sake and ours let us lay aside every encumbrance and the
sin which so easily entangles us, let us run God's resistance testing course with endurance
12:2 Looking intently at Jesus, the originator and test pilot of the Bible
Teaching we believe in, Who also looked up intently on future joy made visible to Him by Bible Teaching. He despised the shame
of the cross, endured it's beyond resistance, the very severest, testing, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of
12:3 Consider Him, Who endured such maximum hostility from sinners against
Himself, so that you do not grow weary and lose heart as you run God's resistance pressure course.
Hebrews 10:36 through 12:7 describes endurance and a child training gym
program to develop discipline, coordination and endurance resulting in 12:11 The Peaceful fruit of righteousness.
So we are encouraged to press on through resistance training in 12:12 Therefore
strengthen your own hands that are weak and knees that are feeble. 12:14 pursue the welcoming peace of evangelism(2Tim.)
and pursue Holiness(filled constantly with the Holy Spirit at gate 2). This first goal is required to see the Lord at gate
12. 12:15 Abide by the Royal Law of Love by allowing no root of bitterness to spring up, to stall you on your course, snaring
others in your sin with you. 12:28 Show gratitude at gate 5-how we offer God service with reverence and awe. 13:1 At gate
ten Love others especially by evangelism. 13:5 Develop contentment of character free of the love of money resting in
the gate seven promise I will never leave you nor ever forsake you so we can say "The Lord is my helper! I will not
fear what man can do to me."
Gate eleven Hebr. 10:32 You endured a great conflict of sufferings
Gate 4 Hebr 10:35 Confidence is Hope and leads to
Gate 11 Hebr. 10:36 endurance to fulfill God's love system and receive
the promise of spiritual maturity.
Gate 8 Hebr 10:38 But my righteous one shall live by the miracle of believed
Bible teaching, If He shrinks from progression to maturity, my soul has no pleasure in Him.
Gates 8 and 2 10:39 But we are not of those who shrink back to destruction,
but of those who have believed in the Bible teaching enabling us to take possession and command over our own souls.
Gate 11 1 Peter 4:12 Fiery ordeal resistance testing. Don't be surprised
4:13 gate 11 muscles up gate 4 like with Paul and Silas in jail at Philippi
4:14 Gates 1, 2(FHS) and 4(blessed) even intensify when reviled for Christ's
1 Peter 4:16 gates 3(Sing) and 5(gratitude) press through persecution.
The World, The flesh and The devil confront the Christian at gates 11 and
12! Jn 16:7,8,9&10 are gates 1 and 2, v.11-Satan is condemned and we are to carry out the sentence, 33 Jesus overcame
the world in resurrection, ascension and glorification;
We must "take up armor and resist in the evil day" Eph. 6:13, day
of resistance pressure testing to develop strength in all lower gates Be on the alert with all perseverance (gate)
11 Eph6:18 petition for sanctified & pastors.
Resistance tests of believed Bible Teaching(gate 8): 2 cor 13:5, Gen 22:12
Isaac a sacrifice, Matt. 6:13 Lead us not into resistance testing, but deliver us from that evil. Let not the resistance testing
become temptation within us to evil James 1:13&14
Gal 4:13,14 Paul preached (Gate 8 pastoral version) through illness and
God was glorified.
James 1:2, 12 perseverance at gate 11 trials develops our gate 9 love for
God which grown to maturity earns the crown of life at the award ceremony in heaven. So, we should "count it all joy!" and,
"Greatly rejoice!" 1Pet 1:6 when distressed by various trials. resulting
also in rewards in heaven. 1P1:7
Christ modeled the love system he bequeathed to us including gate 11: Luke
4:1-13&Matt 4:1-11& Mark 1:12&13, Hebr. 2:18, 4:15
Jesus relied on the Holy Spirit like we do but needed no salvation gate
1 or confession gate 2 because He was always indwelt and filled with the Holy Spirit. Matt 12:28, Mark 1:12, Luke 4:14,18,
John 3:34, John 16:7
Jesus' testing by Satan originated with God the Holy Spirit(As Job's testing
originated with God boasting about Job, God boasting about you?) Mark1:12& esp. v.10 Only 3 test during 40 days of constant
testing are revealed. Satan-uncreative-actualizes God's sovereign purpose: Tempting to philosophy of independence from the
Godhead. Matt 4:8 Satan offers kingdoms that are his from God Ps. 2:7-9, 1Cor. 15:24-8, Rev. 11:15, 19:16
Hbr. 10:5-7 Christmas wish of Jesus becomes His reply
Our supreme pattern displays our pattern to follow. Whether bread or Kingdoms,
Christ relies on God, doing God's will. Daredevil temptation: gate six humility humble yourself under the mighty hand of God
and He will glorify you at the right time.
If you are the son of God corresponds to If you are God's adopted Son and
betrothed of Christ
So Christ has empathy for us when we suffer. The very reason of His test
and example of endurance and ours. Hebr 12: 2-3 Christ our example endured endurance testing. He passed all the tests!
