Youtube video: https://youtu.be/4brp4XXuY2Q
Isa 3:12-14; My peoples' children are their oppressors and women rule over them. My people's leaders lie to them and turn them away from the path of truth.
v13 the Lord takes his place in court and stands up to sentence His people.
v14 The Lord comes to pronounce judgment against the leaders and governmental officials of His people. He says, it is you who have ruined My nation and you have stashed what you have plundered from the poor in your houses.
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 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 David's prayer regarding conspiracy arrogance in Psalms 12.
Psalms 12:1-2; For the choir director; upon an eight-stringed lyre. A Psalm of David. Help, Lord, for the godly man ceases to be, For the faithful disappear from among the sons of men.
v2 They speak lies to one another; With flattering lips and with a double heart they speak.
Psalms12:3-4; " May the Lord destroy all flattering lips (the conspiracy of the arrogant), the tongue (conspiracy of the inadequate) who speak boastful things, Net note 7
v4 who have said, `We will triumph in this conspiracy with our tongues. Our lips are with us; who can stop us?'" Net notes 10,11,12
They speak their propaganda, and create a public lie to undermine the legitimate authority by slander, gossip, maligning, allegation and innuendo.
Their arrogance is displayed by the last rhetorical question: "Who is our master?" They believe they are an authority unto themselves and they recognize no authority except themselves.
The Lord Jesus Christ responds to David's prayer in Psalms 12:5-8; Net ( see notes 14,16, 17,18,20,21)
v5 "Because of the violence done to the oppressed, because of the painful cries of the needy, I will spring into action," says the Lord. "I will provide the safety they so desperately desire."
v6 The Lord's words are absolutely reliable. They are as untainted as silver purified in a furnace on the ground, where it is thoroughly refined.
v7 You, Lord, will protect them; you will continually shelter each one from these evil people,
v8 for the wicked seem to be everywhere, when people promote evil.
This is what we need to be praying because the prayer of a righteous person can accomplish much, Jesus Christ controls history and he is not slack about keeping His promises.
Matt 5:44-45; NET I say to you, love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you,
v45 so that you may be like your Father in heaven, since he causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Romans 12:19; Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.
This brings us to crusader arrogance. Crusader arrogance is defined, as self-righteous arrogance that has a strong or impulsive desire to superimpose its opinion and principles on others by force.
This means that crusader arrogance always violates God's Word because it always assaults the freedom clause of Divine Establishment in addition to any other violations that may occur
People with crusader arrogance believe that they are so right and that their cause so just that they are justified in using any means to gain their objective, including violence, destruction of property, and even causing those who disagree with them to be assaulted, displaced, or killed.
Self-righteous arrogance has been the bane of the existence of mankind since Cain killed Abel after God rejected his offering and accepted Abel's offering. In our country, the more establishment principles are rejected the more crusader arrogance rears it's ugly head.
Crusader arrogance is out of control self- righteous indignation. Self -righteous indignation is the result of the mental attitude sin of emotional anger from self-absorption and self-justification.
True righteous indignation that is based on grace and objective truth is very rare.
Crusader arrogance ignores the honorable and legitimate judicial systems for the redressing of grievances and resorts to using vigilante activity that bypasses governmental law and order to achieve its objectives because it believes that the end justifies the means. This is why those with crusader arrogance practice and advocate for civil disobedience, conspiracy and rebellion.
Those involved in crusades are either operating in blind arrogance because they are ignorant of doctrine or they are operating on the basis of subjective arrogance because they have made a false application of doctrine from scar tissue on the soul, blackout of the soul, or reverse-process reversionism
Crusader arrogance self justifies and self-righteously reacts against what it considers to be inequality, injustice or unfairness and tries to force its solutions to remedy the problem.
Since Jesus Christ controls history this means that crusader arrogance is equivalent to playing God.
In our country at this time those with crusader arrogance are the accusers who are railing against every category of divine establishment freedom for the purpose of creating division and hatred with the objective of fragmenting our country so they can take over and remake the country by implementing their Marxist ideas of "hope and change."
They support every kind of evil including but not limited to the restriction of gun ownership for law abiding citizens, the restriction of speech for those with Divine establishment views, the so called "green new deal," Marxist socialism, the destruction of historical monuments along with the Constitution and founding documents, socialist health care, and even the option for infanticide if a baby survives a failed abortion.
For a more comprehensive list of the evil policies they promote look at the democrat party platform.
The next category is Christian Service arrogance aka works arrogance.
Every believer is in full-time Christian service from the very point of their salvation until death or the exit resurrection aka rapture of the church. Therefore, there is no such thing as a special dedication to full-time Christian service.
Motivation and status quo are the major issues in Christian service. Motivation for Christian service must relate to spiritual growth, to the motivational ministry of God the Holy Spirit, to humility, and to cognition of Bible doctrine.
The status quo for Christian service requires the filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit that establishes residence and function in God's spiritual power system.
The believer's Christian service can function on the basis of their spiritual gift, their royal priesthood, their royal ambassadorship or the laws of divine establishment.
Believers who are residing in satan's cosmic system in the various stages of reversionism operate on the basis of the arrogance of Christian service.
Christian service performed inside God's spiritual power system under the filling and mentorship of the Spirit is legitimate with the result that it is rewarded at the Judgment Seat of Christ.
To be effective, all Christian service must be related to humility. This is compatible with the filling ministry of the Spirit combined with the principle that freedom can only be established on the basis of God's authority.
This means that a right thing must be done in the right way for the right reason at the right time to be right.
Humility can only be maintained through the consistent daily perception of God's Word of truth that is contained in Bible doctrine.
