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 the various categories of the arrogance complex. We noted that arrogance makes the unbeliever susceptible to demon possession and the believer susceptible demon influence.
We are presently looking at the characteristics of psychopathic arrogance and last time had noted that psychopathic arrogance has no capacity for love and because of incapacity for true love a lust for self-gratification including gratification through sexual arrogance may be developed.
Left unchecked this lust can become motivation for criminal arrogance, and can also be an explanation for rape.
The pre-psychotic personality is subjective, inhibited, chronically worried, always stubborn, intolerant, inflexible, and lacks a sense of humor.
This personality is further characterized by inflexibility that functions as a neurotic defense together with the self-righteous arrogance of perfectionism, and/or a guilt syndrome.
Mood swings that oscillate between the emotions related to these antithetical situations create bipolar instability.
It is irritable, peevish, querulous, unable to concentrate, depressed, and full of paranoia. It is full of anxiety, has a tendency toward hypochondria, and has a morbid anxiety about one's own health along with conjuring up imaginary illnesses.
The psychopathic Christian parlays arrogance in cosmic one into illusion and hallucination. The pre-psychotic personality possesses an arrogant hypersensitivity and tendency to think they have been slighted even when nothing has occurred.
Using transference arrogance pre-psychotic believers blame others for their failures and avoid taking any responsibility for those same failures in their life.
It is not surprising that arrogance becomes the catalyst for arrogant reactions including jealousy, implacability, lack of forgiveness, resentment, bitterness, and delusions of persecution.
Locked-in arrogance in the psychopathic person results in several categories of psychopathic personalities including manic depression because arrogance is the catalyst for creating manic-depressive psychosis.
In the manic phase, the believer is very self-righteous, self-satisfied, and even arrogantly aggressive. He is childish, proud, intolerant of criticism, irrepressible, uninhibited, effusive, and often becomes unconventional in speech and manner.
Such a person seeks attention by being boastful, flippant, or argumentative, has wandering thought patterns, is easily bored, and lacks the ability to focus long enough to accomplish anything.
Arrogance in the manic phase is characterized by hostility toward members of one's own family that combines arrogance with unreasonable and unprovoked anger. In this situation bipolar oscillation of the emotions is very common that causes the person to suddenly burst into tears the middle of exuberance.
The manic is self-righteous, officious, and meddlesome. Hallucinations in manic excitement are usually arrogant illusions as the manic builds himself up in order to meddle with and straighten out everyone else.
The manic depressive believer is characterized by alternating mania and mental depression. He goes from being depressed from the arrogance of self-pity to being hyper from self-righteous arrogance.
In the depressive state, the Christian manic has physical complaints that have no organic basis. This is followed by lack of confidence and no sense of destiny; instead, he has a sense of inadequacy so he is unable to be employed.
He forgets that God has a plan for his life, and that God keeps him alive by logistical grace for the purpose of fulfilling God's plan, purpose and will in his life on the basis of provision from God's grace policy.
In the depressed state, the Christian manic has a desire for violence and crime. When manic-depressive Christians commit homicides, the victim is often a member of his immediate family.
This person often seeks to take his own life, so that eventually suicide becomes the ultimate function of the arrogance. The psychopath is totally subjective, self-centered, disoriented, and depressed.
Under these conditions because of the delusions created by demonic viewpoint thinking suicide is common. Locked-in arrogance also results in schizophrenia that is a loss of loss of contact with reality by the disintegration of the personality.
Another erratic behavior in the schizophrenic Christian is ambivalence, having simultaneous attraction to and repulsion from an object, a person, or an action that creates a bipolar response that alternates between love and hate, affection and hostility.
The schizophrenic Christian is full of hallucinations that are expressed in ambivalent arrogance that causes the Christian to deny or reject a lust or desire, but then expresses that lust or desire through delusion and hallucination.
Schizophrenia may explain how people may consciously resist an evil impulse but, at the same time under demonic influence, become involved in other evil things.
A demon possessed unbeliever can even become involved the phallic cult and human sacrifice.
One of the problems of schizophrenia is psychopathic ambivalence. Ambivalence is generally defined as a continuous fluctuation between one thing and its opposite that creates an inability to make a decision.
This means that ambivalence may also be defined as the simultaneous desire to say or do two mutually exclusive things. Psychologically, ambivalence is the coexistence of positive and negative feelings about a person, object, or action.
The believer with spiritual ambivalence cannot decide between Bible doctrine and the cosmic system.
In psychopathic ambivalence, the psychopathic person lives in a world of fantasy combined with unrestrained expressions of lust and arrogance related to satan's cosmic system.
They can justify their evil, sinful experiences, moral degeneracy and immoral degeneracy in the real world because they find self-justification for it in their fantasy world.
Some believers who develop unrestrained function in cosmic one become prone to manic depressive or schizophrenic activities that result in suicide.
However, the Christian who commits suicide cannot lose his salvation. There is no sin or failure a believer can do to cancel the forty things that God gives to everyone who believes in Jesus Christ.
So while suicide is a maximum expression of arrogance, it does not cancel the saving work of our Lord on the cross. Every suicide is a sin, but all sins including suicide were judged in Jesus on the cross.
In pulling the pin of the arrogance grenade, certain believers will take their own lives. Motivation for doing so comes from bitterness, jealousy, hatred, self-pity, revenge, implacability, and vindictiveness that is developed from cosmic involvement and self-absorption.
Psychiatry has developed a whole system of giving people reasons to justify their sociopathic and psychopathic behavior but the reality is that there is no self-justification.
Psychopathic behavior is simply the product of the individual's God given freedom to make decisions from their own free volition. People have the right to be wrong but that does not change the fact that bad decisions limit future options.
It all begins with developing self-pity when in adversity followed by a wide emotional swing to self-righteousness in prosperity.
Egocentricity is typical psychopathic behavior and reaches its peak in psychopathic arrogance where everything is related to self and eventually the person becomes completely divorced from reality.
The one word that describes the complete difference between normal and abnormal is the word, reality.
As arrogance increases, it covers every facet of life, until there is total divorcement from reality. So in the final degree of demonization the person develops a psychopathic or sociopathic personality.
God's Word shows us in Mark 5:1-20; that demon possession and influence are both related to psychopathic behavior.
Psychopathic arrogance suffers from both illusion and hallucination. The involuntary paranoid has a reaction in which he finds that as an arrogant person he is critical, inclined to blame others for his failures, divorced from reality, and he takes no responsibility for his own bad decisions. This delusion results in the development of hypersensitivity.
The involuntary paranoid has reactions that include jealousy, resentment, bitterness, implacability and delusions of persecution.
This brings us to the next category of cosmic system arrogance: the arrogance of unhappiness aka the arrogance of subjective preoccupation with self.
This arrogance is classified as subjective preoccupation with self that destroys any capacity for happiness that also impedes the believer's development of capacity for the execution of God's protocol plan for the Church.
Involvement in cosmic one not only guarantees unhappiness, but at the same time it invokes erroneous ideas about what actually comprises happiness.
Satan's cosmic system promotes an arrogant delusion that people, pleasant circumstances or prosperity are the source of happiness.
Arrogant people are unhappy people because life in the cosmic system cannot provide happiness. Because of their failure to understand the three different categories of happiness, they continue and persist in pursuing their own idea of happiness instead of having positive volition to God's word and having God's happiness pursue them.
There are three different categories of happiness: pseudo- happiness, neutral happiness, and divine happiness.
Pseudo-happiness is a counterfeit happiness that is based on momentary transient stimulation or euphoria that is often mistaken for happiness.
Neutral happiness is happiness derived from positive volition toward and execution of the laws of divine establishment. Psa 1:1-3;
Divine happiness is a true and permanent happiness that God gives to the mature believer who has becomes a winner and an invisible hero from having positive volition to doctrine that results in the execution of God's protocol plan for the new spiritual species that comprises God's Royal Family aka the Church. Isa 26:3; Luke 11:28;
