Jude 1-16; The doctrine of the public lie part 7
Jude 1-16; Jude, a bond-servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, To those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ:
2 May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.
3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.
4 For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
5 Now I desire to remind you, though you know all things once for all, that the Lord, after saving a people out of the land of Egypt, subsequently destroyed those who did not believe.
6 And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day,
7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.
8 Yet in the same way these men, also by dreaming, defile the flesh, and reject authority, and revile angelic majesties.
9 But Michael the archangel, when he disputed with the devil and argued about the body of Moses, did not dare pronounce against him a railing judgment, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"
10 But these men revile the things which they do not understand; and the things which they know by instinct, like unreasoning animals, by these things they are destroyed.
11 Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, and for pay they have rushed headlong into the error of Balaam, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.
12 These are the men who are hidden reefs in your love feasts when they feast with you without fear, caring for themselves; clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn trees without fruit, doubly dead, uprooted;
13 wild waves of the sea, casting up their own shame like foam; wandering stars, for whom the black darkness has been reserved forever.
14 It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, "Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones,
15 to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him."
16 These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.
We are now in a brief study of the public lie and the false narrative that people who are living in satan's cosmic system create to advance their opposition to truth.
Last time we noted that during the tribulation the man of sin will achieve and maintain his power through the use of the false narrative of the public lie. Those who do not love God's Word of truth (believer and unbeliever) will be very easily deceived and sucked into believing the public lie.
This disregard and discrediting of truth is a continuous trend of human history that becomes the basis for the perpetuation of warfare throughout human history because God makes war against the arrogant and God uses warfare for the purpose of destroying evil in order to preserve and perpetuate the human race.
God never restrains positive volition as a means of attempting to control negative volition. He always blesses positive volition and eventually destroys chronic locked in negative volition.
Satan and his pawns use his cosmic system construct the false narratives from public lies to discredit establishment truth in politics and temporal leadership. An example of this kind of public lie is socialism that opposes the establishment truth of free enterprise capitalism.
They also use his cosmic system to construct false narratives from public lies to discredit the teaching of doctrinal truth and those who represent and communicate it.
Self-righteous arrogance from religion is an example of this category of the public lie. 2Tim 3:5;
The self-righteous climate change dirt worshipers use their pagan religion that establishes policies that worship the creation to intimidate those who disagree with them about their public lie regarding anthropocentric global climate disaster.
Secular social justice crusaders accuse Christians of being judgmental and bigoted because of their stand for the doctrinal morality found in God's Word of truth in rather than their lie of equality through the imposition of their view of social justice.
False narratives from public lies are used to discredit communicators of doctrinal truth with accusation and innuendo. Luke 23:2; Isa 54:17; Rev 12:10b;
People, who believe the lie, live by the lie because they have previously rejected God's Word of truth to pursue wrong priorities. They reject truth by refusing to consistently listen to Bible teaching from their right pastor, or by hearing the Word but refusing to metabolize it, or by their rejecting and becoming distracted from truth after metabolizing it.
Without doctrinal truth circulating in the stream of consciousness, the believer is vulnerable to believing the public lie because they have a vacuum in their soul that sucks in the lie that results in the development of scar tissue in the soul from suppressing and rejecting God's Word of truth. 1Tim 4:1-2; Eph 4:17-19;
The scar tissue of the public lie creates spiritual blindness that left unchecked advances to blackout of the soul, emotional revolt of the soul, and garbage from unconfessed sin being buried in the subconscious mind that creates a guilt complex that causes people to try to undo evil with the production of human good.
