Eccles 8:11; Psa 76:10a; 2Cor 13:8; Psa 111:2,7; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 27
Eccles 8:11; Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed quickly, therefore the hearts of the sons of men among them are given fully to do evil.
Psa 76:10a; For the wrath of man shall praise you.
2Cor 13:8; For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.
Psa 111:2,7; Great are the works of the Lord; They are studied by all who delight in them. (7) The works of His hands are truth and justice; All His precepts are sure.
We are engaged 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 and basis for all conflict in the 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 every day, thousands of believers living in the cosmic system make hundreds of thousands of decisions from a position of weakness. These decisions reflect the philosophy of satan and his cosmic system.
Once a free will decision is made to live in the cosmic system, the person loses his ability to make decisions from a position of strength. In the cosmic system all decisions made under the influence of arrogance, emotion and hatred are decisions from a position of weakness.
In the cosmic system emotional arrogance and hatred cause people to hate God, His Word, His people, His policy, and His plan so access to the truth that is required to make a good decision is restricted by negative volition.
The only way to recover is to make a good decision from a position of strength that must be based on the application of doctrine and made under one of the grace ministries of God the Holy Spirit. James 4:6;
Decisions are made either from a position of weakness creating slavery or from a position of strength creating freedom. People develop a trend because they make decisions all the time.
Unless something changes the decision making process momentum develops from the trend so a person making bad decisions tends to make bad decisions and a person making good decisions tends to make good decisions.
Demonized people get their discipline from their own bad decisions that they consistently make from a position of weakness because the momentum they have developed from living inside satan's cosmic system.
God has created His spiritual power system to enable believers to consistently make good decisions from a position of strength but when a believer rejects God's Word they enter n satan's cosmic system that is designed to ensnare them and perpetuate their making bad decisions from a position of weakness.
Satan even tries to destroy his own people who are losers in the cosmic system because arrogance has no loyalty to anyone but itself.
The internationalist communist fascists who have hijacked the democrat party and stolen their identity are demonstrating this and if they win they will try to force their godless evil secular and economic policies on the nation that will establish tyranny and destroy liberty.
Loyalty in any system demands integrity and those who are functioning in the cosmic system have no integrity. The arrogance of the cosmic system cancels integrity, honor, and virtue so people living in the cosmic system are unstable, irrational and have no integrity, honor or virtue.
This can also be used to understand the principle of true and false worship. Under the principle of true worship, you can only give to God what you actually possess. Revelation chapters 4 and 5 teach that we cannot give glory to God, since we possess no inherent glory of our own. But we can give honor, respect, time, and concentration to His Word.
Religion has a false system of worship because it demands that you give what you do not have. Religion and demonism together demand that human sacrifice be given; that you tithe with the result that you give money you do not have, and that you do penance to in an attempt to assuage a guilt complex through self-sacrifice that never works.
Under the principle of TRUE worship, no matter what you give in worship, you still have the SOURCE of the gift so you are never depleted by TRUE giving; this is not so in the religion because religion teaches demon doctrines that demand giving the wrong thing in a wrong way for the wrong reason.
The next category of cosmic 2 activity is religion. Christianity and religion are antithetical. In Christianity, God saves mankind through personal faith in Jesus Christ. In religion, man seeks to impress God with his human good works.
Religion can be classified as the devil's ace trump because religion has been invented by Satan to counterfeit God's plan, purpose, and will for your life, and to divert you from the execution of the protocol plan of God for the Church Age. Religion is a part of the devil's strategy as masquerading as and angel of light (2Cor 11:14;) and as being "like the Most High God," (Isa 14:14;).
Christianity is not a religion but an eternal relationship with God through personal faith in Jesus Christ. In religion, people seek the approval and acceptance of God through good deeds, human merit, and various categories of "good" works.
Religion reflects the evil genius of satan. Christianity represents the perfect integrity of God combined with His grace policy.
To effectively carry out his deceit, lies and propaganda, satan has devised a system of religious counterfeits that oppose the truth of Christianity.
Satan has a counterfeit system for the following: The Gospel, 2Cor 4:3-4; Gal 6:1-8; Ministers, 2Cor 11:13-15; Communion table, 1Cor 10:19-21; Doctrine, 2Tim 4:1-2; Spirituality, Gal 3:1-3; System of righteousness, Matt 19:16-28; gods, 2Thes 2:3-4; power, 2Thes 2:8-10; "spiritual life", Matt 23:13-36;
Religion is satan's strategy for distracting mankind from the three categories of truth.
The truth contained in the laws of divine establishment that are a part of the Mosaic Law. Religion seeks to become the state and destroy human freedom. The union of religion and state is a major attack on human freedom.
The truth contained in the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Religion distorts salvation by grace through faith into many diverse systems of salvation by works.
The truth contained in Bible doctrine for the spiritual life of the believer after salvation.
Religion substitutes false doctrine (or the "doctrine of demons," (1Tim 4:1; 2Tim 4:3-4;) for truth. Religion sets up a system of human works and ritual as a substitute the protocol plan of God.
