Precept from the Latin, to teach
is a commandment, instruction, or order intended as an authoritative rule of action.
"Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. 10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:"
Isa. 28:9-10 KJV
The Words of God are the Precepts of God
The Kingdom of God which is in you if you are a child of God (Christian), functions and operates by a set of precepts (rules, laws, principles) created by God. When sin entered into the Garden of Eden distortion took place distorting God's plan for man. Man moved from a spiritual system, God is a spirit, to a fleshly system controlled by the five physical senses. Jesus came to redeem man and reclaim the earth for man and put him back on a spiritual system.
Now Earth Has Two Systems
God's system which is of the Spirit and this world's system which is of the flesh and the devil. These two systems, God's way of doing things and the way of the flesh are now in conflict with one another. God's System brings blessings and supports life while the other brings trouble, confusion and death.
When You Became God's Again
When you gave your life to God by accepting Jesus Christ as your person Lord and Savior you again became a spiritual being and God's Kingdom is available to you right here on earth. The Kingdom of God is in you (Luke 17:21) this is if you are a Christian. Visit the Two Kingdoms page.
While the Kingdom of God is available to every Christian and present within every Christian the flesh wants to put up a fight against it. Many do not understand that the flesh, our mind, will and intellect (the world's system) are one in the same and in conflict with God's way of doing things. For many Christians their problems all stem from trying to live in both kingdoms at the same time and they are in conflict with one another. A house, a kingdom, divided is unstable and cannot stand.
A lack of knowledge and understanding of how God's Kingdom, His way of doing things along with one's friendship with the world (doing things the world's way) has made many and continues to keep many weak spiritually. If you've ever wondering where the God you read about in the Bible is, you are weak spiritually. It is you and no one else who is allowing the devil to bloody your nose in life and attack your family each and every day. It is time to grow up in the things of God and begin to learn and utilize the system within the Kingdom of God, which God has made available to you to overcome this world's way of doing things. You are supposed to be the head and not the tail. An heir as long as he remains a child is no different than a slave even though he is master of the entire estate.
The Kingdom of God is not a Religion
It is a Government with Laws like any other Government.
"Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts."10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:" KVJ
The Word Precept in the above verse and through the Bible means ordnance or law just as in any country or kingdom. They are laws that require you to follow them if you are to gain and obtain the most benefit possible from that government or kingdom and by violating them you place yourself in a position of having that country or kingdom to be working against you for violating their laws.
God is the God, King, Lord of His Kingdom and there are certain rules, laws, principles that apply to it.
The difficulty comes in our understanding that God's Kingdom is a Spiritual Kingdom and because we are so used to living in this world of the flesh much of what these laws and principles are telling us to do, do not make sense to use for we are trying to logic them out. There is no logic to them when viewed through the flesh you must see them through spiritual eyes for them to make sense.
There are things in this natural world that make no sense to us logically we just have learned to accept them. For instance, gravity, we cannot explain gravity other than things fall to the ground. What is gravity really, why does it work, something about a magnetic field. That doesn't make sense either, if gravity is a magnetic field why don't all metal objects get pulled the gound? See what I mean? The bottom line is we don't completely understand gravity but we accept it as fact. Everyone knows and believes in gravity or people would step off of high buildings but they don't.
Let's take the natural law of aerodynamics. The physical law of aerodynamics existed from the beginning of the world we just did not understand it. Most do not understanding it now they just know that planes fly. It wasn't until the Wright Brother put all the laws that governed the laws (precepts of flight) together that an object flew. Aerodynamics are a series of laws, precepts, principle that when applied correct will overcome and will always overcome the law of gravity and one can fly. This is exactly the same with the precepts of God. They are spiritual laws that do exist in the spirit realm and remember you are a spirit. You may not understand them but when they are applied (and you apply many every day) they work. Because of our lack of understanding they have a tendency to work in a negative direction. When applied correctly they will overcome everything this natural world has to offer. Everything in the Word of God in one way or another is explaining and giving examples of these precepts. The Word of God is the Precepts of the Kingdom of God.
