Psa 37:28-34; Job 5:19-27; Isa 53:17; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 30
Psa 37:28-34; For the Lord loves justice And does not forsake His godly ones; They are permanently secure, But the children of evil men will be destroyed.
29 The righteous will inherit the land And dwell in it forever.
30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, And his tongue speaks justice
31 The law of his God is in his heart; His steps do not slip.
32 The wicked spies upon the righteous And seeks to kill him.
33 The Lord will not leave him in his hand Or let him be condemned when he is judged.
34 Wait for the Lord and keep His way, And He will exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.
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;
We are presently noting religion as the most sophisticated category of satan's opposition to God because it deceives people into thinking they are serving God by doing good when they are actually serving satan and doing evil.
We noted that 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.
False teachers appeal to human arrogance, 2Cor 10:12; False teachers promote idolatry as a part of the devil's communion table, Hab 2:18-19; 1Cor 10:19-20;
False teachers promote self-righteousness that includes legalism, personality arrogance, authority arrogance, human works arrogance, and crusader arrogance. 1Tim 1:6-7;
False teachers are clever deceivers who can only be detected by those who have had their thinking renovated by the consistent perception and metabolization of doctrine.
