Eccles 8:11; Because the verdict against evil is not quickly imposed the people completely set their minds on doing evil.
We are presently in a study of satan's cosmic that is a system of demonic thinking has become the basis of the thinking of the entire human race since the fall of mankind in the Garden of Eden that apart from God in the darkness of spiritual death is comprised of the lies and deceit of arrogance. 1Cor 2:14;
Last time we noted that scripture refers to fragmentation as "grieving the Holy Spirit." This is where spiritual entropy begins because the believer is no longer listening to God even though they may deceive themselves into thinking that they are because they are deceived by satan and producing the evil of human good. Gen 3:4-8; 1Tim 2:14; Net note 23
Motivational arrogance pulls the pin detonating the grenade with the result that the believer enters into the miserable life of OSN control of the soul and cosmic death.
The fragments of the grenade are the various facets of cosmic involvement, that result in living in the evil of satan's cosmic system under OSN control of the soul producing the evil of human good.
The cosmic believer has not lost their salvation, but the function of the fragments grenade prevent the fulfillment of God's plan, purpose, and will for their life under God's grace policy because the believer rejects them as being false.
The released fragments of the arrogance grenade shatter the believer's fellowship with God, cause them to reject God's grace policy, cause them to become a disciple of the devil, and cause them to become very resentful about learning God's Word.
This is why a good understanding of satan's cosmic system, including cosmic one, is extremely important both in realigning our priorities, establishing a permanent scale of values, understanding our divinely provided portfolio of invisible assets, and getting with the program of renovating our thinking with metabolized doctrine. Rom 12:2; 2Tim 2:15;
God's Word warns us specifically about bitterness because it is an arrogance fragment with the potential to establish the believer in the cycles of chain sinning of judging, anger, vituperation, and implacability.
Heb 12:15; "See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God, that no root of bitterness springing up cause you trouble, and by it many are defiled." If you have bitterness in your soul, it not only causes you trouble, but it defiles everyone around you.
Eph 4:31; "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, bickering, and slander be put away from you, along with all malice."
Rom 12:3 describes arrogance as the pin in the grenade. "For I say through the grace which has been given to me to everyone who is among you: stop thinking of self in terms of arrogance ( the pin in grenade) beyond what you ought to think, but think in terms of sanity (doctrinal truth) for the purpose of being rational without illusion as God has assigned to each one of us a standard of thinking from doctrine."
Faith aka the doctrine that is the revelation of the absolute reality of God's Word of truth is God's standard of thinking that is required for the believer to live the Christian life.
Those who are living a fragmented life in satan's cosmic system do not use God's standard of thinking from doctrine instead they have developed their own standard of thinking from demonic influence on their emotions.1Tim 4:1-2; Phil 3:17-19;
These believers have rejected God's Word and believe it to be false with the result that God wages war against them.
1Pet 5:5-7; "`....God makes war against the arrogant, but He gives grace to the humble.'
