Class Notes: 8/21/2019
1Pet 5:5-9; Rom 12:18-21; Eph 4:31-32; The doctrine of Cosmic 2 part 11
1Pet 5:5-9; You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,
7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
9 But resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being accomplished by your brethren who are in the world.
Rom 12:18-21; If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all men.
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.
20 "But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head."
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Eph 4:31-32; Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
32 Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
We are in a study of satan's cosmic system, a system of arrogant demonic thinking that is comprised of 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 viewpoint of the entire human race. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
At this point in our study we are looking at satan's cosmic 2 system where irrationality, disillusionment and discontent from operating in cosmic 1 arrogance metastasizes into hatred, hostility, and antagonism toward God, God's people, God's policy and God's plan.
Last time we noted that after salvation the most important activity for the believer is the renovation of their thinking with God's Word of truth under the ministry of God the Holy Spirit. Rom 12:3;
This requires the believer to maintain the filling ministry of God's the Holy Spirit and to be committed to learning God's Word academically. Eph 5:18; Eph 4:11-16;
Academic ability and experience in other fields are not an advantage because God provides everything necessary for every believer to learn His Word exclusively on the basis of grace and doctrine through the use of His provision of GASP.
Contrary to popular opinion only God can create equal privilege and opportunity and he does that for every Church Age believer at the moment of salvation. That is the only place in the devil's world where equality ever exists.
Equality only occurs in the spiritual realm for the purpose of advancing in God's plan through the deployment of our portfolio of our invisible assets. Gal 3:28-29; 2Cor 5-15:21; Eph 1:3-14;
