ABSTRACT TO JOY – B SERIES
Exceeding Joy – Man’s Spiritual State of Being
Jud 1:24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
GOD is One; Perfect; Eternal, and Infinite. There is no other Being in Existence, such as HE, in the Universes or Cosmos.
HE upholds Everything in Existence and In HIM – We Live and Move and have our Being. Mankind was created, in HIS Image, as a Rational being with the Ability to “Know GOD”, to have Fellowship with HIM and to Worship HIM. GOD is the “Object” of Man’s Joy. Without HIM there is no Joy.
Act 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
Deu 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
Mar 12:32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
Hos 13:4 Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

Joy is, currently, Participating in the Final Elevating Stage of Development for the Children of GOD, beginning with the Acceptance of CHRIST as Savior and Lord , Becoming A Disciple, Believer, Saint and Overcomer (THE FIRSTFRUIT) in this current Life and to receive the Spiritual Power to Perceive the Truth that will make them Free from the Power of Darkness and Blindness. It is seeing JESUS the CHRIST now in part but Knowing one Day All Believers will see HIM Face to Face.
1Co 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Joy is Realizing the Lie of the >> Carnal Deception << and the Spiritual Stagnation of the Minds of the Race of Mankind and the Intent of the god of this World to keep the Minds of Unbelievers Blinded in Carnal Darkness, Void of the Light of Truth and then Being Drawn Out of the World by YHVH GOD from the Power of Darkness and Becoming a Disciple and Believer of the Glorious Gospel of CHRIST Being Translated By YHVH GOD into the Kingdom of HIS Dear SON to be Spiritually Elevated.
2Co 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath 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.
The Joy Of The Lord
Joh 17:13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
Joy is not only for the Future Life. Its for the Present Life too.
In this Present Life, Believers are Spiritually Enlightened by the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT of GOD; “Knows” GOD; HIS Perfection; the Glory of HIS Nature; the Riches of his Grace; the Mercy of HIS Long-suffering; the Holiness of HIS Goodness, and HIS Glory as Exhibited in CHRIST, who is “Known” through the HOLY GHOST/SPIRIT.
Believers behold the Glory of GOD through JESUS CHRIST, the Begotten of the FATHER; the Image of GOD; the Revelation of GOD; the Manifestation of GOD in the Flesh; and the Embodiment of the GODHEAD; Full of Grace, Joy and Truth. Through JESUS CHRIST and the Promises of GOD, Believers Partake of the Divine Nature and by Living in the Divine Will of GOD and Living through HIS HOLY SON, Believers share the Fulfillment of HIS Joy through the Power of the Indwelling HOLY GHOST/HOLY SPIRIT, who abides with the Believer.
2Pe 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
1Ti 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Joh 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Joh 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
Mat 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
1Jn 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.
2Co 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Joy can only be Experienced through the Indwelling of the HOLY SPIRIT. Anything else such as “Happiness” is a poor fleeting substitution, a counterfeit of Joy. Happiness is a transient carnal emotion externally evoked and dependent on physical desires, circumstances and situations and may be negated by other emotions such as disappointment, anger, or depression.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Eph 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
Joy, unlike happiness, is a Fruit of the HOLY SPIRIT. It is a State of
Being, regardless of circumstances and situations such as temporal sufferings such as problems with relationships, finances, health, trials and tribulations. Spiritual Joy is the Ecstasy stimulated by the Acquisition or Expectation of Good (regardless of trials) such as the >> Bible Promises of GOD << (see the link below for the free eBook download); it is that Realization and Actuation of Pleasurable Feelings which is caused by Fulfillment; the Gratification of some Spiritual Good Possessed or by a Rational Prospect of Possessing what we Love or Desire; Gladness; Exultation; Euphoria; Exhilaration of Spirits. It is also the Acquisition of >> Spiritual Gifts << which Empower the Believer, helping him to Navigate through the Physical and Spiritual World.
2Co 4:8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
2Co 4:9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
2Co 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
1Co 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
Benefits Of Joy In The Present Time
“Joy is “Knowing” Who, What and Why you are. It is “Knowing” Where you are and Where you are going (Beyond Life and Death). Its “Knowing” the Big Picture (Existence) while you are still “Living” in Your Sphere of Life (your Lifetime). It is “Knowing” (Learning) your “Purpose” in Life”; Realizing it (Covenanted with CHRIST); and Actualizing (Receiving) the Great and Precious Promises of GOD.” – Guide to Your Personal Zenith.
