Gal 6:7-8; The doctrine of doctrinal orientation part 37
Gal 6:7-8; Do not be deceived, God will not be made a fool people will reap what they sow... those who sow to the sin nature will reap destruction but those who sow to the spirit will reap eternal life
In our study we have been noting the consequences of the inversion of thought that is the product 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 in Hosea 4:6; we are noting the word translated "rejected." In the phrase... because you have rejected knowledge I will reject you from being my priest....
We noted that the disaster they faced was caused by their rejection of God's Word of truth that had resulted in their adoption of the propaganda, lies and deceit of so called "truth" that is really only the fake news of demon doctrine.
"Rejected" means that they "refused? to the point of hating God's Word. This is the maximum negative volition of cosmic two. Therefore, "what kind of wisdom did they have?" The answer is demonic wisdom. The vacuum (mataiotes) opened up, and cosmic lies that they considered to be truth but were actually lies saturated their thinking.
Last time we jumped over to Jeremiah to look at a parallel situation in Judah that was similar to the political situation in the United States of America today.
We left off in Jer 8:10; "Therefore I will give their wives to others, Their fields to new owners; Because from the least even to the greatest everyone is greedy for gain; From the prophet even to the priest they all practice deceit. ( because they function under deceit of demonic viewpoint)
In this verse we see the unintended consequences of the national rejection of Divine establishment. They lost their women to the invaders, their economy collapsed and they were defeated militarily because they rejected God's mandate for military preparation that is required for the protection and maintenance of the human freedom that is required to serve God. Neh 4:14; NET
Remember we have temporal freedom for the purpose of serving God. Exod 7:16;
The blame for the national disaster is laid directly on pastors the academy, the media and the political elite because they failed in their responsibility to communicate truth. They manufactured lies from the deceit and propaganda of demonic doctrine.
They advocated a demonic policy of human morality from the energy of the old sin nature and emotion.
It is not the responsibility of the ministry to clean up the tenements, to equalize the races or to improve the environment. The only way that real reformation in social and economic conditions can be accomplished is through God's Word of truth being resident in the souls of individuals.
The responsibility of the pastor is to study and teach God's Word because the only solution is the Divine solution revealed in God's Word. Human solutions based on demonic viewpoint are no solution.
Jer 8:11; They heal the brokenness of the daughter of My people superficially from human viewpoint saying, 'Peace, peace,' But there is no peace. ( because there is no spiritual virtue)
Jer 8:12-14; And therefore the priest and prophet, (the pastors) and the people will be destroyed. Truth and the opportunity for spiritual production will be taken away.
The false pastors, the academy, the politicians and the ruling class were pacifists, and their message was identical to the "peace at any price" propaganda and deception that is expressed by the "progressives" in the so called post Christian western world today.
So called "brotherly love" that is nothing but emotional sentimentality never stopped an invasion; it has never prevented war and never will prevent war. The only way for a nation to obtain peace in the world is to maintain spiritual and military strength and, when necessary, wage war to destroy the enemies of freedom because they are also the enemies of God. (Neh 4:9; Psa 127:1;)
