Job 5:19-27; Isa 53:17; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 29

Job 5:19-27; "From six troubles He will deliver you, Even in seven evil will not touch you.
20 "In famine He will redeem you from death, And in war from the power of the sword.
21 "You will be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, And you will not be afraid of violence when it comes.

22 "You will laugh at violence and famine, And you will not be afraid of wild beasts.
23 "For you will be in league with the stones of the field, And the beasts of the field will be at peace with you.

24 "You will know that your tent is secure, For you will visit your abode and fear no loss.
25 "You will know also that your descendants will be many, And your offspring as the grass of the earth.

26 "You will come to the grave in full vigor, Like the stacking of grain in its season.
27 "Behold this; we have investigated it, and so it is. Hear it, and know for yourself."

Isa 53:17; "No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their vindication is from Me," declares the Lord.

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 were noting religion as a category of cosmic 2 activity. We noted that satan has a counterfeit for every facet of Christianity because religion is satan's strategy for distracting mankind away from every category 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 for God's grace policy and His protocol plan.

Religion motivates and produces every category of evil, violence, terrorism, and murder as a means of enforcing its way or providing leverage to lure people into the sphere of the satan's counterfeit system.

Religion is not only characterized by the doctrine of demons (2 Tim 4:1;), but it has both false teachers and false prophets to communicate this information. There are at least six characteristics of false teachers in the Church Age.

False teachers are masters of hypocrisy. They use a facade of lies and deceit, first exposed by Jesus in Matt 7:15; and described by Paul in Rom 16:18;

Behind their public relations facade, false teachers use legalism to seduce their converts into believing their religion, Gal 4:17-18; 2Tim 3:5-7; They flatter their targets by appealing to their arrogance and making them feel wanted.
