Psa 69:4; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 33
Psalm 69:4; Those who hate me without cause are more numerous than the hairs of my head. Those who want to destroy me, my enemies for no reason, outnumber me. They force me to pay what I did not take.
We are presently 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.
Last time we were noting principles regarding false teachers and that religion includes worship of satan because, as the ruler of this world, he possesses great power and delegates his power to whomever he pleases until Jesus returns. Rev 13:4-8;
Paul describes these religious leaders in 2Cor 11:13-15; Peter describes them in 2 Pet 2:1-3;9
When Satan is cast out of heaven in the middle of the tribulation, he no longer has any use for his human minions so he turns his demon assault army on them but he saves the religious group in the cosmic system for his last attack on the human race: this attack of ecumenical religion at the end of the Tribulation, is described in Revelation chapters 17 and 18.
Satan's policy for ruling the world is described as evil. This power is deployed against the human race in his cosmic system.
Evil is the ultimate expression of satan's relationship with mankind. Evil in the cosmic system is both the motivation and momentum of the cosmic system. In 2Tim 3:13; the advance to "more and more evil" describes the momentum that satan's minions develop through their function inside his cosmic system.
There are two categories of evil: Motivational evil that originates from false doctrine in the cosmic system and functional evil, that is the modus operandi and lifestyle within the cosmic system.
Satan's cosmic system, the place for the function of absolute evil that opposes God's spiritual power system that is the place for the function of absolute good,
In the protocol plan of God, good and evil are mutually exclusive. This means that no evil exists in God's spiritual power system and no good exists in satan's cosmic system.
God's mandate regarding evil is given to us in Rom 12:21; "Stop being conquered by evil (consistent living in satan's cosmic system), but conquer evil by means of good (life under the filling and mentor ministries of Got the Holy Spirit where, production comes from the deployment of God's power through the application of His Word of truth)."
In Eph 5:16; Life inside God's spiritual power system is described as "redeeming" or "buying back time" this is necessary because of the destructive entropy and death of satanic evil.
