1Tim 4:1-2; Net Now the Spirit explicitly says that in the later times some will desert the faith and occupy themselves with deceiving spirits and demonic teachings, influenced by the hypocrisy of liars whose consciences are seared.
Exod 7:3-5; Net note 6 But I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and although I will multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt,
4 Pharaoh will not listen to you. I will reach into Egypt and bring out my regiments, my people the Israelites, from the land of Egypt with great acts of judgment.
5 Then the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord, when I extend my hand over Egypt and bring the Israelites out from among them.
Psa 76:10; Net note 19 Certainly your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise; you reveal your anger in full measure.
We are presently in a study of satan's cosmic system that is a system of arrogant demonic thinking that is comprised of lies and deceit from demonic viewpoint thinking that since the fall in the Garden of Eden, separated from God in the darkness of spiritual death has become the viewpoint of the entire human race. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
At this point in our study we are examining the various manifestations of the arrogance complex of satan's cosmic system. We have noted that arrogance makes the unbeliever susceptible to demon possession and the believer susceptible demon influence.
Last time we were noting iconoclastic arrogance and the principle that the arrogant iconoclast never blames himself for what he has done in creating an idol and then, in disenchantment or disillusion, destroying it. In his irrational state of mind, he blames the idol for being created by his own fantasies.
This is because arrogance never takes the responsibility for being arrogant.
For the believer in spiritual adulthood, there is no reaction to people and that includes no disenchantment or delusion with people. You take people including believers as you find them.
Each stage of spiritual adulthood is characterized by occupation with the person of Jesus Christ, which means God emphasis takes precedence over people emphasis.
Once you reach spiritual self-esteem, you have an 80% victory over disenchantment with people. The victory is completed in spiritual autonomy and spiritual maturity.
Beginning with the cognitive self-confidence of spiritual self-esteem, you begin to tolerate all kinds of people, never feel threatened by others, and you never get involved to the point of becoming disillusioned or disenchanted with anyone.
Arrogance is responsible for creating the icon illusion. Whatever illusion is created as inevitably becomes the basis of disillusion, because illusion and disillusion interact in the drive toward unreality.
Therefore, iconoclastic arrogance is abnormal because it arrogantly blames the idol manufactured by self for what self in arrogance has done. The actual villain is the arrogant self.
The enchantment and fantasy, that is followed by the resultant disillusion, disenchantment, and disappointment is the arrogant cycle that is one of the quickest ways to enter into psychosis.
The arrogant reaction of idolizing and then rejecting your very own icon is the vanity of transferring the blame for your own malfunction of soul and failure onto an innocent party.
Disillusion combines the arrogance of manufacturing the idol with the hypocrisy of transferring the blame to the idol that you seek to destroy. Once the blame is transferred to the idol that was created by your own arrogance, you judge the idol as being guilty of disappointing you and then you destroy your idol through the mental, verbal and overt sins.
Arrogance destroys what arrogance creates. Arrogance is the illusion of assuming that someone is perfect. Iconoclasm is the destruction of the image. It is also the demonic evil influence of transferring your guilt to an innocent party.
So the feet of clay syndrome is the arrogant irrationality and hypocrisy of rearranging the doctrine of sin to be compatible with your own self-righteousness.
Admiration is a normal expression of one's standards. Normal admiration is very wonderful and is a sign of having some worthwhile standards. When you admire successful people in certain fields, it is a reflection your own thinking, standards, and priorities.
It is not degrading to admire others. But it is arrogant, morally degenerate, evil and demonic to make people into idols.
The standards of the protocol plan of God that are developed from faith, hope and love always relate to virtue, honor, and integrity can be expressed as admiration for people.
But to become disillusioned, disappointed, or disenchanted with the idol of your own making is an abnormal sign of moral degeneracy and depravity.
When normal, love, respect, and admiration are related to the virtue established by good standards and priorities combined with humility in your thinking.
