Isa 26:3-4; You will keep the one whose mind is focused on you in perfect peace, because he trusts in You.
v4 Trust in the Lord forever because in the Lord is an everlasting protector.
Isa 28:16;Therefore thus says the Lord God, "Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, A costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. Those who believe in it will never panic.
Matt 11:28-30; "Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.
v29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
v30 "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."
We are presently in a study of satan's cosmic system that is a system of arrogant demonic thinking that is comprised of the lies and deceit from demonic viewpoint that since the fall in the Garden of Eden, apart from God in the darkness of spiritual death that has become the basis of the thinking of the entire human race. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
Last time we noted that bitterness is a pin in the arrogance grenade that is often pulled when there is a lack of grace orientation. Heb 12:15; "See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God, that no root of bitterness springs up and causes you trouble, and by it many are defiled."
One person who fragments can cause a chain reaction because when fragmentation occurs other arrogant people react to the fragmentation.
The fragmented life is taught in Eph 4:14; "With the result that we are no longer to be childish (fragmented), destabilized in heavy seas and driven out of control (fragmentation) by every wind of false teaching, by the trickery of false people with fake news who deploy cunning deception for the purpose of deceitful scheming." Net note 19
Bitterness also triggers other arrogance factors. Eph 4:31; "Let all bitterness, both anger (emotional sin) and wrath (mental attitude sin), both quarreling and slander, be removed from you, along with all malice."
Malice refers to motivation from envy, hatred, bitterness, anger, vindictiveness, or implacability that seeks vengeance on others by using criminality to inflict injury for the purpose of causing suffering.
Believers must never forget that vengeance is above their pay grade. Rom 12:18-21; Deut 32:35-36; Isa 40:31;
Arrogance leads to rejection of truth. 1Tim 6:3-4; "If anyone teaches a different doctrine and does not concur with sound doctrine, those doctrines from our Lord Jesus Christ, even the doctrine pertaining to godliness (life in God's spiritual power system),
v4 he has become blinded by arrogance to the point where he understands nothing. Furthermore, he has become morbid from preoccupation with controversies and arguments that cause envy, discord, and evil suspicions."
A fragmented life has a proclivity for false doctrine. All true doctrine come from our Lord Jesus Christ because He personally established all precedence for the Church Age while He was on the earth in unglorified humanity during the dispensation of the Hypostatic Union.
Mental attitude arrogance results in morbid preoccupation with self, which results in indifference to Bible doctrine, that creates a vacuum that sucks in the cheap substitutes of emotional activity, legalism, and the production of human good instead of functioning on the basis of grace and faith inside God's spiritual power system.
A fragmented believer has morbid preoccupation with controversies. He has personality conflicts with people who he thinks have wronged him to the point where he is morbidly obsessed about it. He has fragmented his own life by pulling the pin of his own arrogance grenade.
Evil speculation is making a villain out of someone because of your own arrogance. The speculation isn't true at all but the accuser uses the false allegations in an attempt to destroy its target.
This is what the democrats, the "deep state", Obama's pawns in the injustice department, and the lying fake news media are doing in their evil attacks on our president and anyone associated with him.
Doctrine can be rejected in the reception or gnosis stage when arrogance rejects doctrine when it is received and understood academically because of failure to be consistent in the daily exposure to Bible teaching.
Arrogant distortion at the reception stage is caused by lack of concentration or objective humility. Arrogant subjectivity twists and misuses doctrine in an attempt to achieve its own objectives.
In the retention or epignosis stage arrogance rejects doctrine by discarding it before it is retained. In this case arrogance spits out true spiritual food. Retention is the ability to remember and recall gnosis doctrine that has been converted into epignosis or spirit taught doctrine.
Humility creates objectivity that combined with positive volition metabolizes doctrine by means of the omnipotent power of the teaching ministry of God the Holy Spirit. Arrogant subjectivity attacks this stage by trying to make doctrine its servant instead of its master.
In the application or wisdom stage, arrogance rejects doctrine when it is recalled by failing to apply metabolized doctrine to experience through the grace protocol of the ten problem solving devices of God's protocol plan.
