Jude 1-16; Rom 8:6-8; The doctrine of the public lie part 8
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.
Rom 8:6-8; The mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so, 8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
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 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 in the soul from believing 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.
We see from this that the process is degenerative so if you live by the public lie, you will die by the public lie because scar tissue of the soul has no capacity for any kind of spiritual truth.
The public lie works because anyone can say anything about anyone and someone will always believe it, especially if they have mental attitude sins toward that person.
Those who believe the lie are those who have no truth in their soul or who have suppressed the truth from accumulated scar tissue and garbage in the subconscious mind from their rejection of God's Word of truth after hearing it.
The originator or manufacturer of the public lie is either irrational from the evil of emotional complex or arrogance complexes of sins or is mentally ill or both because scar tissue of the soul from believing the public lie creates mental illness.
