Lev 26:25;...and when you gather together into your cities, I will send pestilence among you,...

Psalm 91:1-12; He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, "My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!"

3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper And from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.

5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night, Or of the arrow that flies by day;
6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
7 A thousand may fall at your side And ten thousand at your right hand, But it shall not approach you.

8 You will only look on with your eyes And see the recompense of the wicked.
9 For you have made the Lord, my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place.

10 No evil will befall you, Nor will any plague come near your tent.
11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, To guard you in all your ways.
12 They will bear you up in their hands, That you do not strike your foot against a stone.

Matt 4:5-7; Then the devil took Him into the holy city and had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple,
6 and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, 'He will command His angels concerning You'; and 'On their hands they will bear You up, So that You will not strike Your foot against a stone.' "

7 Jesus said to him, "On the other hand, it is written, 'You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.' " (Deut 6:16;)

Eph 6:18; With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view

18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,

We are presently in a study of the doctrine of evil that is the product of believing the false narrative of the public lie that satan, the god of this world, fabricates and raises up in opposition to truth and righteousness that are the product of believing the Person and Word of the Living God of the universe.

Last time we noted that satan seeks to redirect the believer's focus by getting them occupied with other people, on themselves in self-pity, or on things by influencing the believer to think that God's logistical grace is insufficient instead of being completely focused on Jesus Christ and His Word of Truth. Eph 2:1-7;

Satan uses the believer's arrogance to keep them functioning in his cosmic system. His system is designed to distract believers with entertainment, improving the world with crusader arrogance, occupation with temporal solutions to man's problems, social action, the welfare state, socialist and communist economic policies, fear, and religion.

Satan presents religion with its idolatry and human good works as a counterfeit God's plan of grace and truth.

Satan uses religious idolatry to deceive man into thinking that his human good works are pleasing to God. Satan uses religion to counterfeit every aspect of God's grace plan with doing good in the devil's world.

Satan counterfeits the Gospel, 2Cor 4:3-4; has his own communicators, 2Cor 11:13-15; doctrine, 2Tim 4:3-4; the communion table,1Cor 10:19-21; a counterfeit spirituality, Gal 3:2-3; righteousness, Matt 19:16-28; the power and dynamics of the spiritual power system, 2Thes 2:8-10; He has counterfeit gods, 2Thes 2:3-4; and his cosmic system has counterfeit works, Matt 23:13-26.;
