John 8:44-47; "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
v 45 "But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.
v 46 "Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me?
v 47 "He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God."
John 18:38-40; Pilate said to Him, "What is truth?" And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews and said to them, "I find no guilt in Him.
v 39 "But you have a custom that I release someone for you at the Passover; do you wish then that I release for you the King of the Jews?"
v 40 So they cried out again, saying, "Not this Man, but Barabbas." Now Barabbas was a robber.
We are in a study of Satan's cosmic system that is a system of thinking that is the basis of the thinking of the entire human race that is comprised of lies and deceit in their natural soulish state apart from God in spiritual death . 1Cor 2:14;
Last time we noted that the reason we have so many problems in our country is because too many believers in our country are living on the basis of psychological viewpoint inside satan's cosmic system so they make decisions on the basis of the same lies basis that unbelievers do with terrible consequences. Gal 6:7-8;
God's Word warns believers against thinking on the basis of lies, demon doctrine of cosmic viewpoint.
1John 2:15-16; Stop loving the kosmos (cosmic one) or anything related to it. If anyone keeps loving the kosmos (cosmic one), the love of the Father (personal love for God) is not in Him.
v16 Because all that is in the kosmos (cosmic one) - the lust of the flesh (old sin nature controlling soul), and the lust of the eyes (motivational arrogance), and the arrogant pattern of life (functional arrogance) - is not from the Father but from the kosmos.
We noted that Satan has provided a counterfeit communion table for the cosmic system that is designed to lure believers away from functioning under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit, and to distract the believer away from God's grace policy and the execution of God's protocol plan.
1Cor 10:21, You (believers) cannot drink the cup of the Lord (Eucharist) and the cup of demons (cosmic system, especially cosmic one). You cannot partake of the table of the Lord (The Eucharist as the only ritual for the Church Age) and the table of demons (demon influence and psychological living in cosmic system).
The devil's communion table focuses on the production of human good works and being a humanly good person to obtain or maintain righteousness. Satan deceives people into thinking that their righteousness' is sufficient but human good can never be sufficient. Isa 64:6; Rom 4:2;
Jesus' communion table focuses on the fact the believer positionally and irrevocably possesses the perfect righteousness of God by grace through faith alone in Christ alone and functions on that basis. Rom 4:3-5; 2Cor 5:21;
The verse not only informs us that the devil has a communion table, but it also clearly documents the doctrinal principle that God's protocol plan that is based on God's grace and Satan's cosmic system that is based on human good works are mutually exclusive.
Living by means of the spirit in God's spiritual power system or by means of the OSN in satan's cosmic system are mutually exclusive absolutes.
The believer is either totally filled with and controlled by God the Holy Spirit with the result that they are filled with the spirit and living in the spiritual life, or the believer is living under OSN control of the soul in satan's cosmic system.
God's Word also commands the believer to avoid cosmic two.
1 Tim 4:1-2; "But the Spirit explicitly teaches that, in latter periods of time (First Advent, Church Age, Tribulation), some (believers) will withdraw from doctrine, giving attention to (concentrating on) deceitful spirits (demon evangelism recruiting for the cosmic system) and doctrine from demons (demon influence resulting in psychological living)
v2 by means of hypocrisy of liars, seared in their own conscience with a branding iron."
This verse tells us that from Jesus'' First Advent to His Second Advent, there will be believers in every generation who will come under demon influence, reject Bible doctrine and become involved in Satan's cosmic system with the result that they conduct their lives on the basis of satan's psychological norms and standards rather than God's spiritual norms and standards. 1Cor 2:12-16;
Demon influence is the demonization of the soul through the thought content of Satan's cosmic system. The thinking and emotions of the soul are controlled by life in Satan's cosmic system. Both believer and unbeliever are vulnerable to the invasion of demon doctrine into their souls through cosmic involvement.
The laws of divine establishment protect and insulate mankind against the influence of the lies of Satan's cosmic system.
Once in Satan's cosmic system through sin, human good, or evil, the believer can only recover through the function of his priesthood by using the rebound technique of acknowledging the sin to God alone.
1Tim 4:2; No one ever gets involved with conspiracy without first becoming a hypocritical liar and searing their conscience with the hot iron of arrogance. This is what we the fake news media in our country has done to itself.
Involvement in the cosmic system is equivalent to a lifestyle of spiritual death. Eph 2:2; "in which sphere (real spiritual death) you formerly walked (as an unbeliever) according to the lifestyle of this cosmos (cosmic system), according to the ruler of the power of the air, the spirit (Satan) who is now working through the sons of disobedience."
Real spiritual death is terminated when a person believes in Jesus Christ for salvation (John 20:31;) but even though spiritual death is terminated it continues to exert influence on the believer who enters into Satan's cosmic system, through personal sin and sans rebound continues and live and function there producing the dead works of human good and evil.
For the unbeliever, the laws of divine establishment provide a certain amount of protection from cosmic influence.
In addition to the limited protection provided by the laws of divine establishment the believer who establishes residence, function, and momentum inside the divine dynasphere has unlimited protection.
God's Word tells us that Satan is the author and ruler of the cosmic system, John 12:31; John 14:30; John 16:11; 2Cor 4:4; Eph 2:2;
The phrase "sons of disobedience" refers to those who persistently reside and function in Satan's cosmic system to the point where their norms and standards for life are defined by the priorities of Satan's cosmic system.
Eph 4:26; tells us that the emotional sin of anger is a gateway from the arrogance of cosmic 1 into the hatred of cosmic 2.
We how this operates on Cain in Gen 4:5-8;
