Equilibrant means "a counterbalancing force or system of forces". It is the Lord's burden upon me to help bring balance where the world, wrong teachings, opinions, and other forces that be, have unbalanced the "Way's" and "Truth's" of God. Today, it is easily found in people, situations, or organizations an extreme element or position concerning doctrines, teachings, and viewpoints that are off center to the Spirit and Word of God. Sometimes it is blatant disregard for scriptures, other times it's in ignorance, and sometimes it's because somewhere else the extreme on the opposite end has reared it's head.
Prov 11:1 'A false balance is an abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is His delight'
Dan 5:27 '...Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.'
A brother in the Lord has shown that I need to shed more light about this balance. I will give examples of what this balance is and what it is not. Here's an example from one of my pages:
Luke 12:51-53 "Do you suppose I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you, no, but rather division; for from now on five in one household will be divided, three against two, and two against three. They will be divided, father against son, and son against father; mother against daughter, and daughter against mother; mother-in-law against daughter-in-law, and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law."
1 Tim 5:8 " But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever."
If a person follows one of the above scriptures and not the other (it doesn't matter which one), he is out of balance. Another example is Paul's stance in the following scripture.
Phil 1:15-18 "Some, to be sure, are preaching Christ even from envy and strife, but some also from good will; the latter do it out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel; the former proclaim Christ out of selfish ambition rather than from pure motives, thinking to cause me distress in my imprisonment. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed; and in this I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice."
I know that there is false preaching out there. Many have bad doctrines. Yes, they should be corrected, but not by us, unless we are given opportunity by God. But until such time, let us have Paul's stance, in being thankful that Christ is preached. We must edify and build up, not tear down. Edification is the work of God, tearing down is the work of satan. This stance of Paul's is the balance I preach and seek. Here is another (especially for the pentecostals and charismatics):
1 Cor 14:32 "And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets."
Whose in control here, is it the gift, or the one who has it? Come on folks, God is a God of order. We need to learn to control our selves. But remember not to go the other way:
1 Thess 5:19-20 "Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances."
Very importantly, I am not advocating a lukewarm faith (Rev 3:15-16). I believe that we need to love the Lord with all our heart and all our might(Mark 12:29-30). I also believe this:
1 John 2:15 "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."
But again there is a balance, we must be kind and are we are not to become a monk.
I hope I have clarified my proclamation of balance. One of the main desires of my heart, for these pages is to help YOU no matter where you are spiritually. There are many who haven't received the basic fundamental teachings of christianity from the Bible. There are others who may have questions in that area. Then there are those who desire more meaty teachings and can't seem to find them or get enough. I'm of the opinion that you don't give your car keys to a 5 year old an let him drive. Therefore I believe some teachings can be harmful or misunderstood if the basics are not learned and known first. Let me quote Hebrews 5:12 through Hebrews 6:3 :
In view of this, the "meatier" or more advanced teachings will be found after reading the basic ones. Either you will need the basic stuff to understand the deeper stuff or you will have the patience to find it because you have grown in the Lord. I want to help you as much as I can. These pages are new, it will take weeks or months to get the depth of teaching I desire to put on the web. If at any time you need help, please email me. I will help you to the extent of my ability. I am here for you. Hopefully you will receive from the Lord through me or these pages and learn: He is there for you more than I ever can be.
"For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the first principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not strong meat. For everyone who continues to feed on milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But strong meat is for them that are of full age, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil. Therefore leaving the first principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on to maturity, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of the resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgement. And this we shall do, if God permits."
