Youtube video: https://youtu.be/IxPfpPGzQ4A
Psa 14:1; The person who says there is no God is a fool.
Psa 111:10; Wisdom begins with respect for God
2Thes 2:15; Fellow believers, stand your ground and keep on holding on to the traditions which you were taught....
Heb 4:12; God's Word is alive and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword and it pierces between the soul and the spirit and judges the thoughts and intents of the stream of consciousness.
James 1:20; Man's anger (emotion) does not perform God's righteousness.
Gal 6:7-8; Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Hosea 8:7; They sow to the wind and reap the whirlwind...
2Cor 13:11; For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.
Psa 14:2; The Lord looks down from heaven to see if there is anyone who understands and seeks God
We are presently in a study of the doctrine of the winner believer who because they do seek God they do understand. Winner believers are those who live in the devil's world but are not of it John 17:16; those who the world does not deserve. Heb 11:38;
Winners are the unknown, unsung heroes of history who testify of the veracity of God's perfect integrity in the spiritual darkness, deception, propaganda, lies, deceit and death of the devil's world during human history where God is invisibly conducting the criminal prosecution of satan and the fallen angels by empirically demonstrating that their false accusations about God are lies. Rev 12:9-11;
Winners are the targets of God's grace imputations because they have capacity from believing the faith aka the doctrine that is comprised of God's word of truth with the result that they become the ones who God sustains to press His doctrinal advance in the spiritual deception and death that engulfs the devil's world.
God demonstrates His unfailing integrity love for every person who is enslaved by the deception of satan's cosmic systems and makes provision for each one to be freed. 1Tim 2:4; Rom 5:8; 2Cor 5:21; Gal 5:1;
We have seen that it is the winner's doctrinal viewpoint that creates capacity for God's grace imputation. When the believer's viewpoint is based on God's Word of truth, truth becomes the target for God's imputation of grace that is the only basis for freedom, prosperity and happiness in human history.
God's grace imputations to believers are so HUGE that they are incomparable to the adversity and suffering that they endure during their life in the devil's world. Rom 8:18; NET
At this point in our study we are noting that the consequence of the rejection of God's Word of truth is inversion of thought that creates unrighteousness and injustice. This occurs because the natural person does not understand God or His ways. 1Cor 2:14;
This means that without continuous daily renovation of our thinking from God's Word there is continuous daily degeneration from satan's lies and deception. This means that if we are not actively pursuing truth we are passively rejecting it.
Rejection of the truth is reason why demon viewpoint thinking has overthrown divine establishment viewpoint thinking in our nation with the result that there is massive unrighteousness and injustice everywhere. Criminals are not being prosecuted and instead the innocent are falsely accused and convicted of alleged criminality Isa 5:20-23;
The inversion of thought is so perverse and pervasive that the criminals can actually make the case that having righteous standards based on divine establishment and God's Word of truth is unrighteous and being just is unjust.
This is the exact same false accusation that satan and the fallen angels make against God.
God allows humanity to duplicate the same kind of thinking that satan used to cause the angels to rebel against God. This becomes the venue for the testing of human volition as testimony for or against God and His Word in the trial of satan's appeal which is why God created humanity. Matt 24:24; NET
God's judicial case against injustice in a nation is described in Hosea 4:1-6; that was written in 721BC regarding the northern kingdom of Israel because of their rejection of truth resulted in the inversion of their thought. Since God's Word is immutable these same principles apply to every other nation including the USA.
Last time we left off in Hosea 4:3; with "The nation mourns." The qal imperfect of "abal" means to mourn the loss of loved ones.
It is a Hebrew idiom that refers to universal lamentation that comes from the loss of loved ones from unrestrained criminality and defeat in warfare.
