1Pet 5:5c; The doctrine of the cosmic system part 52 (mic problems audio is rough)
Noi video Audio for this class is rough
1Pet 5:5c; ... God makes war on the arrogant but gives grace to the humble.
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, separated 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 discussing transference arrogance and had noted that Moses was one of the greatest geniuses who ever lived. But even Moses pulled the pin of the arrogance grenade in his own life when he attempted to liberate the Jews from slavery without God's help that started with his killing an Egyptian taskmaster. Exod 2:11-12;
When he turned to violence and force he was immediately fragmented and had to run. Exod 2:15; It took forty years for God to put the pieces back together before he could return to Egypt to free the Jews
Only God could liberate the Jews from Egypt. Moses had to learn to recognize his own limitations, and in the process he learned humility so that he could become one of God's greatest servants, an instrument for the deliverance of Israel. Numbers 12:3;
Moses had a hard time with this. He failed again when he threw the tablets of stone down after he came down from the mountain Exod 32:19; and he failed again when he struck the rock rather than simply speaking to the rock. Numbers 20:8-12;
Almost everyone suffers from the flaw of transference arrogance. Elijah had it, David had it, Peter had it, Paul had it, and just about everyone has it at one time or another.
It is very likely that the fatal flaw that will take down our president's demon influenced opposition that arrogantly stands opposed to every one of God's mandates and blame President Trump for their evil.
They have characterized themselves as victims and have transferred their own flaws and mental attitude sins onto Trump instead of recognizing their own culpability.
How many times have you been aware of your own flaws and failures and as a result assumed that those were also the faults of others? You then transfer your sins, failures, and faults onto them and then judge, accuse, slander, malign, and think evil of them.
A big part of knowing one's own limitations is to realize that your sins and flaws; are not transferable to others. They can only be dealt with by simply acknowledge them to God, forgetting them, and continuing on by means of the filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit. 1John 1:9; Phil 3:13; Gal 5:16;
The arrogance pin is pulled by the mental attitude sins of jealousy, bitterness, hatred, antagonism, self-pity, hatred, revenge motivation, or implacability.
When the pin is pulled we then transfer our flaws to others who do not have our flaws, failures, and sins. We think they are afraid, antagonistic, bitter, or jealous, but the reality is that they are not but the unintended consequence of transference arrogance is that we destroy our relationships with people because of our own flawed arrogant assumptions.
The next category of arrogance is the arrogance of immorality or sexual arrogance.
This category of arrogance involves sex that involves total preoccupation with self and disregards every factor of virtue or consideration of others. It includes but is not limited to illegitimate sex or sex outside of marriage.
Sexual arrogance belongs to those who are classified in 2Tim 3:4; as "lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God." There's nothing wrong with pleasure, but when you put pleasure ahead of God your volition has created a problem.
God designed sex in the human race to be an expression of love in marriage, as one of the many manifestations of love between a husband and wife. Therefore, sex is designed for conjugal relationship.
Sex is not solely designed for reproduction it was designed to be to be an expression of love between one man and one woman so this makes sexual arrogance ritual without reality.
