Matt 6:31-34; Don't worry saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?'
v32 For the unbelievers pursue these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
v33 But above all pursue his kingdom and righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
v34 So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself. Each day has enough evil of its own.
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;
When we stopped last time we were noting that part of negative volition is the arrogance of ignorance that can occur at three points.
It can occur at the point of salvation, all believers are ignorant of doctrine. Therefore, it is important that they listen to the teaching of the Word so that the thinking of their soul can be renovated so that human viewpoint can be removed and divine viewpoint established.
At the point of reception, believers are ignorant of doctrine. Therefore, it is important that they concentrate on God's Word under the genuine humility created by the filling ministry of the Holy Spirit when doctrine is communicated.
When believers go arrogant they reject doctrine so they become ignorant of doctrine; this is the arrogance of ignorance. Therefore, it is important that they rebound quickly so they can recover the filling and teaching ministry of God the Holy Spirit and function inside God's spiritual power system.
The arrogance of ignorance is the believer living in time without perception, metabolization, or application of doctrine that results in replacing the contentment created by momentum in the protocol plan of God with the fragmented life from motivational and functional arrogance of the cosmic system.
The arrogance of ignorance corrupts and distorts authority; rejects power, success, talent, ability, genius, marriage, social life, both romance and friendship, pleasure, health, sex, and just about everything else in life that can be distorted and misused by arrogance.
The arrogance of ignorance results in problems in the soul related to reversionism. This includes; blackout of the soul, scar tissue of the soul, and strong delusion of the soul, that is the apex of demon influence on the believer where the believer's rejection of reality results in the believer becoming psychotic, neurotic, and psychopathic.
At that point the believer becomes irrational from operating in the boomerang effect of emotional revolt of the soul and exchanges the truth for the lie. Rom 1:28; Isa 5:20-23;
The application of absolute divine truth is sine qua non. God is infinite; He is without boundary and without limitation. He unites in Himself those perfections that comprise the essence of His person. God's infinity includes veracity and truth. The application of God's truth to life always creates spiritual growth.
The arrogance of ignorance rejects God and the fact that God is truth and that veracity is an immutable and eternal part of His character. Since God is truth and veracity, He cannot be complicated or compromised by ignorance, arrogance, or the absurd contradictions that arise from arrogance.
God's plan, will, and purpose for every believer is related to His truth and veracity. It is impossible for the believer to execute the protocol plan of God and thereby glorify Him apart from cognition of the truth contained in Bible doctrine.
Divine motivation is related to God's own glory. Therefore the only thing that glorifies God is absolute truth.
God is true to Himself, both in His essence and in His personality. Consequently, any revelation from God has to be truth, This includes the facts about Himself, the facts about the prehistoric angelic conflict, the facts about human history, and the facts about His grace policy.
The truth that God reveals to mankind in His Word is classified as Bible doctrine. While believers can say they have learned the truth, God says "I am the truth." John 4:24; John 17:17; John 14:6;
God never holds the truth as being acquired or perceived by Him. God personifies truth, He is truth, always has been truth, and always will be truth because truth is part of His infinity, His eternity and His immutability. Matt 24:35; 2Cor 13:8; Mal 3:6;
God is eternal; His truth is eternal. In God, every form of truth and every form of knowledge dwells in an absolute form. God has designed His protocol plan to function and be fulfilled by means of truth.
Truth in the form of metabolized doctrine resident in the stream of consciousness of the human soul acts as a wall of fire, protecting the believer from satanic propaganda and involvement in the cosmic system.
Truth in the form of divine establishment protects the unbeliever from both demon influence and demon possession.
When believers are ignorant of the truth that God conveys in His Word of truth they are vulnerable to the transfer of satanic policy and thinking into their stream of consciousness from the demon influence that occurs from living in the cosmic system in the devil's world.
This is why our nation, client nation USA, is presently being destroyed from within. Hosea 4:6-7; Isa 48:22;
Infinity characterizes all that God does, this includes the function of His Immutable Holiness, that is comprised of His perfect justice and righteousness, as well as His eternal truth and the administration of that truth through His grace policy.
Therefore, divine motivation is both perfect and eternal. This is why human I.Q. is not the issue in the perception of God's Word of truth because God has provided a spiritual I.Q that enables every believer to acquire His Word of truth.
Under the principle of rightly dividing the Word of Truth, the believer must distinguish between the "facts of history" that while being true are not always truth because of the negative volition of the angels and mankind, and the truth of Bible doctrine from God who is truth that is absolute, infinite, and eternal truth.
The facts of history include every thought, every motive, every decision, and every action of every human being and how it interrelates with his particular circumstances in the context of one's interaction with other people.
The omniscience of God fed all the facts into the divine decree, so that all human history both the truth and the lies, the good and the evil, the believer and the unbeliever, the causes, the conditions, the successions, the relations and the consequences, all always completely known at all times by God's omniscience.
The facts of history include truth and lies, failures and successes, opposition to God and the glorification of God. These are the true facts of history, but the only absolute truth in history is God's Word of truth as expressed in Bible Doctrine.
All truth originates from God and all lies originate from Satan and those under his influence in his cosmic system. Rom 3:4; John 8:44;
Bible doctrine is absolute truth. The facts, both true and false, are a part of history. The divine attribute of veracity guarantees both the truth of Bible doctrine and the accuracy of everything that happens in history, whither true or false.
Therefore, we must distinguish between truth that is Bible doctrine, and the facts of history that include both truth and lies.
The fact that lies are recorded as facts in the Bible does not mean that God condones or sponsors these lies. Although sins are recorded in the Bible with perfect accuracy, it does not imply that God sponsors sin He simply permits it during the course of the angelic conflict.
God does not condone false doctrine nor the evil of men, but He reports it accurately in His Word of truth. Only the arrogance of negative volition rejects absolute truth and justifies evil. Believers distort God's grace policy because of ignorance from their arrogance.
To enter into the arrogance of ignorance, the believer must make hundreds and thousands of negative decisions against the truth resulting in the believer living on the basis satan's cosmic lie, and failing to take advantage of God's grace provision of equal privilege and equal opportunity in His protocol plan.
Satan is a liar and the father of lies. While his lie is confined to time, the angelic conflict, and its extension into human history; truth has always existed and always will exist and will always be vindicated.
Only divine truth can advance the believer, while the arrogance of ignorance hinders the believer from fulfilling the plan of God.
Therefore, the arrogance of ignorance is any system of thought that hinders the believer from fulfilling the plan of God or advancing in it. The arrogance of ignorance hinders the believer from glorifying God.
God honors His Word wherever it is found so God honors the believer who learns His Word and applies it to history.
This explains how the pivot of mature believers delivers client nations. It also explains how certain nations are delivered by their application of establishment principles.
God punishes the false, which explains the evil of demon influence in the cosmic system and the resultant administration of divine judgment in the cycles of discipline to a client nation.
Negative volition arrogance combines with arrogance of ignorance to hinder the believer from fulfilling the plan of God for his life.
The arrogance of ignorance is failure to make the transition from ignorance to cognizance. This transition must exist in both the temporal and the spiritual realm.
The more areas in which a person is ignorant, the more areas in which he is prone to arrogance. If you don't know or understand something, arrogant assumptions and preconceptions are used as a defense mechanism.
Enforced humility from the inculcation of authority in the home carries you magnificently through life because you are taught to take the responsibility for your own decisions. Each transition in life requires virtue. Genuine humility is necessary to make the transition from authority in youth to freedom as an adult.
This is the transition that the arrogant "snowflakes" in our county have not made so they have exchanged freedom from truth for the lies and slavery of democrat socialism.
Failure to make the transition from ignorance to cognizance in the Christian life is very damaging and produces many pressures in the arrogance system. This is the failure of the renovation of the thinking from human viewpoint to divine viewpoint after salvation.
Spiritual maturity requires making the transition from total ignorance at regeneration to cognizance in spiritual maturity. This demands the function of both enforced and genuine humility that produces the objectivity that is necessary for perception and metabolization of Bible doctrine.
