2Cor 13:8; The doctrine of doctrinal orientation part 34
2Cor 13:8; For we cannot do anything against the truth but only for the truth. NET
In our study we have been noting the consequences of negative volition to God's Word of truth and have been noting passages that describe the fall of the Israelite client nations who had rejected God's Word.
We are looking at God's warning to the Northern Kingdom of Israel in Hosea 4:1-6 and left off in Hosea 4:4; NET "Yet let no one accuse or offer criticism against anyone else (as the evil self righteous social injustice activist community disorganizers do when they blame those with so called "privilege"), for my case is against the priests.
In Israel, the Levitical priests communicated doctrine with the ritual animal sacrifices, the observance of Sabbath and Holy days, and the articles of furniture in the Temple.
The prophets In Israel were also Bible teachers but they had also become propagandized by demon doctrine to the point where they were also teaching demonic lies
The stumbling prophet corresponds to pastors and those who function as pastors who are distracted from teaching God's Word with the result that they are communicating lies of demon doctrine that are based on emotional reaction and sentiment rather than accurate thinking with rational doctrinal thought.
Believers who are ignorant of Bible doctrine can become so spiritually degenerate that they cannot properly orient themselves politically.
The demonic degeneration of the democrat party in this country into a party of internationalists, anarchists and communists who hate the constitution and promote tyranny is a perfect example of this.
Demon doctrines focus on feeling good by doing human good rather than doing the right thing for the right reason at the right time that God's Word of truth prescribes.
Demon doctrines include pursuits such as social justice through civil activism rather than divine establishment,
problem solving with psychology rather than Bible doctrine,
and promoting internationalism through no borders, and no established language that results in the destruction of the culture because of unrestricted immigration without cultural assimilation.
Lack of cultural unity creates a fractured society and disunity of thought. Without cultural identity the people forget the spiritual prosperity that is the real source of their material prosperity and they are deceived into thinking that they can have material prosperity without having capacity from spiritual prosperity.
People immigrate to participate in the freedom and prosperity that a host nation possesses but when they fail to assimilate and refuse to accept and adapt the culture of the host country they destroy the culture that is actual source of the material prosperity that they came to benefit from so they end up destroying the very thing that they came for and end up with nothing.
Immigrants who reject the culture and fail to assimilate in effect end up killing the goose that lays the golden egg. A culture based on Christian principles from God's Word of truth is the only source of true lasting prosperity in a nation.
Cultural destruction occurs because believers reject the divine solutions revealed in God's Word of truth that are the only solution to the adversities created by life in the devil's world and replaces them with demon doctrines that only makes things worse.
Having rejected truth the only thing that is left is the lie that is comprised of the sin, human good and evil of human viewpoint based on demon doctrines. that results in the nation entering into the downward spiral into destruction from the cycles of divine discipline.
Turbulence and revolt in a national entity is symptomatic of the saturation of thought from evil demon doctrines. Believers are especially guilty because they have not only rejected the authority of the communicator of God's Word of truth they have also rejected the message.
In our passage, the communicators were prophets and priests. The prophet communicated the spoken Word of God and the priests, the written Word.
When a majority of believers in any dispensation resist the doctrinal teaching and the authority of their right teachers, the laws of establishment are abandoned in favor of demonic policies of evil that results in national degeneration.
Once the authority of doctrinal teachers has been ridiculed and set aside in a nation, that nation has cut its own throat. No one can extract sufficient Truth to grow Spiritually and become a preserver and stabilizer of his country simply by reading the Bible.
The only hope for a people is truth, and communicators with the proper spiritual gift must supply this. Eph 4:11-14;
Without the communication of truth, a nation has no future because the believer's attitude toward truth determines the state of the nation.
In 754BC The Assyrians were on the brink of national destruction from demonic doctrines but they responded to Jonah's ministry with the result that they recovered and prospered for an additional 143 more years.
In 721BC Northern Kingdom of Israel rejected Hosea's ministry with the result that the Assyrians destroyed them.
God's administration of the fifth cycle of discipline to the Northern Kingdom of Israel would occur within a year of the time this was written.
Whether or not the United States survives the abandonment of truth for evil liberal demon doctrines that presently threaten to submerge it depends on positive or negative volition toward truth.
Hosea 4:5; "Therefore, you have stumbled in the daylight, and even the prophet will stumble with you in night darkness; you have destroyed your own people (your nation). Net note 10
During a period of national prosperity the priesthood and the leaders of the nation failed to communicate truth so without the constant renovation of their thinking the people turned away from God and His Word of truth.
Those in leadership have been distracted by the demon doctrines of world peace through internationalism, equality through activism and pseudo spirituality through psychology.
The spiritual darkness that is created by of the rejection of the light of the truth of God's Word creates the unintended consequences of self induced personal and national disaster that are the inevitable result of consistently making bad decisions made from a position of weakness.
