1Kings 18:21; Josh 24:15;John 8:37-44; Matt 12:25; Matt 24:6;Matt 24:9-12; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 20
1Kings 18:21;Elijah came near to all the people and said, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people did not answer him a word.
Josh 24:15;"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
John 8:37-44;"I know that you are Abraham's descendants; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you.
38 "I speak the things which I have seen with My Father; therefore you also do the things which you heard from your father."
39 They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham.
40 "But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; Abraham did not do that.
41 "You are doing the deeds of your father." They said to Him, "We were not born of fornication; we have one Father: God."
42 Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me.
43 "You not understand what I am saying because you refuse to listen to My words. Net note 103
44 "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Matt 12:25; And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand.
Matt 24:6; "You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.
Matt 24:9-12;"Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because you believe Me.10 "At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.
11 "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.
12 "Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold.
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.
At this point in our study we are looking at satan's cosmic 2 system where irrationality, disillusionment and discontent from cosmic 1 arrogance metastasizes into hatred, hostility, antagonism and opposition to God, God's people, God's policy and God's plan. 1Cor 2:14; Rev 12:9;
Last time we noted that cosmic panaceas eliminate the mutual respect hat holds any society or organization together. Only where mutual respect exists can there actually be leadership and humility for teaching, learning, and problem solving.
We noted that when there is a malfunction of the principle of mutual respect in any organization a complete breakdown and failure will inevitably occur. This is what is occurring in our country right now.
Cosmic panaceas inevitably result in big tyrannical government and enslaved little people. Cosmic panaceas advocate criteria that enslave the people to the state instead of having the government serve the people.
In a democracy, the citizens become the slaves of the state when they exchange their freedom for the mirage of equality and security.
This is a recurring pattern in history that the leftist socialist democrats want to do to the USA at the present time and it is the responsibility of doctrinal believers to stand their ground in indefatigable opposition to it as did the believers in Smyrna. Rev 2:8-10;
All cosmic panaceas are based on self-righteous arrogance so they promise all sorts of things that cannot be fulfilled. They are divorced from reality and always end up inciting violence.
Cosmic panaceas promote division and prejudice. Having an old sin nature means we all have some prejudices. But cosmic panaceas promote prejudices that result in terrorism, violence, and warfare.
In pursuit of their socialist utopia they tinker with the freedom and authority of establishment that God designed to protect every person in a national entity by providing them equal rights before the law, recognize the sacredness of their property and life, and protect their freedom and privacy,
No government or special interest group can create equality in the human race. Only God can create equality. He has done this with the baptism of the Holy Spirit at the point of salvation.
Two of the results of the baptism of the Holy Spirit are the creation of the new spiritual species and the royal family of God. These two new creations are the foundation for the Christian way of life and the function of God's protocol plan for the church.
Equal opportunity creates equality for a moment but after that it because of freedom it guarantees inequality. We can see this demonstrated in both the temporal and spiritual realm.
By creating equal opportunity inside His protocol plan, God has guaranteed that there will be great inequality in heaven because there are always some people who will use their free volition to take advantage of equal opportunity, and some who will not.
In the name of the so called greater good, the government commits crimes by setting itself up as god and violating God's laws of divine establishment that He established to protect freedom, privacy, property and life that is necessary for people to be saved and advance in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Marxism, socialism, and communism are anti-God and anti-Christian because in order to create the promise of utopia they must set themselves up as god and destroy freedom and privacy to accomplish their goals.
Without freedom and privacy, the individual cannot have a destiny and without Divine establishment authority no one can have freedom or privacy.
