Eccles 8:14; NET Another enigma that occurs on the earth: Sometimes there are righteous people who get what the wicked deserve, and sometimes there are wicked people who get what the righteous deserve, I say, this is another enigma.
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;
We are presently looking at categories of arrogance because arrogance makes the unbeliever susceptible to demon possession and the believer susceptible demon influence.
When we stopped last time we were noting psychopathic arrogance and the principle that arrogance rejects authority which is why an arrogant is susceptible to demonic influence.
This begins in childhood, where personality is dominated by emotion exclusive of rationality. Children are naturally emotional they can only develop rational function by training under the enforced humility created by the parents.
Children with no training under enforced humility develop excessive tantrums, destructiveness, children who are allowed to sulk who are deceitful, obstinate, boastful, shameless, and erratic. These are the characteristics typical of the rejection of authority in cosmic one.
Left unchecked these psychotic conditions can become locked in to the point where they are irreversible without medical help. Spiritual recovery can only occur when a person has sufficient mental discipline to concentrate, listen, learn and apply the relevant Bible doctrine.
Where recovery is possible, the road to recovery demands the consistent use of rebound to get out of cosmic one, proper medication prescribed by a competent doctor to enable normal capacity for listening and concentration, and persistence in the perception of doctrine under the filling ministry of God the Holy Spirit.
Under the principle of antithetical arrogance, one person reacts in arrogance in one state of unreality, and their loved one reacts in arrogance in the opposite way so a solution can never be reached.
Arrogant children in their arrogant disorientation to authority often react against parents, and in opposition to the child's arrogance the arrogant parents react against their children's disobedience with emotion rather than rational thought.
Apart from grace orientation from doctrinal inculcation, the reaction goes from one state of arrogant unreality to another state of arrogant unreality, never finding the solution.
Problems cannot be resolved when you are reacting against someone else and after reacting against someone for years, it is inevitable that your drive toward unreality will eventually take you into a psychotic or neurotic condition.
The tragedy is that it is often too late to recover, because the reaction has become locked in and ingrained to the point where all the decisions made in one state of unreality are simply reactions against another state of unreality.
In this case it can appear that Bible doctrine does not work but the reality is that doctrine was never actually applied because of the mental attitude sins that accrued from the emotional reaction to illusion.
When people in this situation listen to Bible doctrine they only listen to it as a ritual rather than for the purpose of developing capacity for spiritual momentum.
When a person is functioning in a state of unreality doctrine cannot solve their problems because their mental attitude sins prevent the application of doctrine under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit.
This emphasizes the importance of consistent residence in God's spiritual power system under the filling ministry of the Spirit and the persistent renovation of the thinking with metabolized doctrine.
This enables the use of the basic problem solving devices. It is the use of the basic problem solving devices that enables the believer to breakout from their self-imposed unreality from believing a lie.
There can be no breakout from unreality apart from enforced and genuine humility that creates the objectivity that is necessary to learn truth from the reception, retention, and recall of doctrine.
When operational, the function of the problem solving devices of grace orientation and doctrinal orientation will result in the development of the cognitive self confidence of spiritual self-esteem that establishes personal love for God that is the basis of a complete breakout from unreality.
When you move into spiritual autonomy with its impersonal love for all mankind a total state of reality in interactions with people is developed. Impersonal love gives you the capacity for tolerance that removes the legalism from life, and gives you God's Happiness that is the major problem-solving device that makes it possible to advance through undeserved suffering into spiritual maturity.
If there is drug involvement that has destroyed so many neurons of the brain to the point where there are no more places on which to print doctrine for recall, then the situation is hopeless apart from God performing a miracle by regenerating the neurons in the brain.
God can do this easily, but because of the law of volitional responsibility miracles are not generally a part of the protocol plan for the Church Age.
The decision to get involved with drugs is the worst thing that can happen to a human being because it is chemical self-destruction.
In some cases even the first use of drugs can cause a person to become a vegetable or even die, a testimony to the disaster that can occur from the negative repercussions of the law of volitional responsibility.
Some bad decisions have immediate and irreversible consequences.
Because of this we need to be very wary of drug use and arrogance because both can destroy you because a functional human brain is required for spiritual development.
The psychopathic believer lacks the ability to realistically evaluate the object of his emotional responses or reactions. Arrogant preoccupation with self excludes reality and leads to the drive to be deluded into believing some variant of satan's cosmic lie.
An example of this is when a psychopathic female falls in love with a male in her periphery, making him the object of her hallucinations and fantasies. Pursuing this pseudo-love with arrogant fanaticism, the arrogant psychopath loses all objectivity, reasoning power, and moral stability.
This causes the psychopathic believer under the influence of the cosmic system to pursue a false objective of pseudo happiness from self-gratification with irrational, unpredictable, and abnormal behavior.
Psychopathic arrogance has no capacity for love and because of their incapacity for true love a lust for self-gratification including gratification through sexual arrogance may be developed.
Left unchecked this lust could become motivation for criminal arrogance, and can be an explanation for rape.
The pre-psychotic personality is subjective, inhibited, chronically worried, always stubborn, intolerant, inflexible, and lacks a sense of humor.
