Psa 69:4; Psa 23:4-6; Exod 14:13-14; Eph 6:10-13; Gen 50:20; The doctrine of cosmic 2 part 35
Psa 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 for what I did not take.
Psa 23:4-6;Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and unfailing love will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Exod 14:13-14;But Moses said to the people, "Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever.
14 "The Lord will fight for you while you keep silent."
Eph 6:10-13; Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Gen 50:20; "As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good..."
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 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."
The truth contained in Bible doctrine protects the believer from Satan's policy of evil. 2Thes 3:3;"But the Lord is faithful; He will both empower you and protect you from evil."
The Lord's prayer for the Church addressed this subject in John 17:15; when He asked the Father to "guard them from evil." That was the request for the Church to be protected by God inside His spiritual power system..
We are commanded to learn God's Word so we can avoid the dangers of evil, 2Tim 2:25-26; Heb 5:13-14;
While arrogance and its affiliates are involved in motivational evil, the function of both cosmic one and cosmic two are characterized as both motivational and functional evil, Isa 13:11; Isa 47:10-11; Jer 9:3;9;
