1Cor 3:18-20; Isa 14:13-14; John 8:44; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 34
1 Cor 3:18-20; (NET) 18 Guard against self-deception, each of you. If someone among you thinks he is wise in this age (satan's cosmic system), let him become foolish so that he can become wise (God's spiritual power system).
19 For the wisdom of this age (cosmic viewpoint) is foolishness with God (Divine viewpoint). As it is written, "He catches the wise in their pseudo wisdom."
20 And again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are vacuous."
Isa 14:13-14; "You said to yourself, 'I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north.
14 'I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will overthrow the Most High.
John 8:44; "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.
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;
Last time we noted that 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.
Positive volition to God's Word of truth prolongs life, liberty, and happiness in the devil's world. 2Chron 7:14; Eph 6:2-3;
As long as Satan rules the world, evil will continue to be a part of human history. 2Tim 3:13;"But evil men, even deceivers, will become more and more evil, deceiving and being deceived."
