Click to watch Youtube video:

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

Psa 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, 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 asserts in opposition to truth and righteousness. Eph 6:12; 2Cor 10:5a;

Last time we noted that Satan uses religion to counterfeit every aspect of God's grace plan by asserting the lie of doing good in the devil's world as a means of acquiring righteousness.

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;

Satan's system of false teachers is part of his strategy. They have a phony and hypocritical facade, Matt 7:15; Rom 16:18. They use human public relations to establish rapport, Gal 4:17-18; 2Tim 3:5-7;

They appeal to arrogance and pride, 2Cor 10:12. They promote idolatry as part of the devil's communion table. 1Cor 10:14; 1John 5:21;

Satan invented evil as a system of thinking Ezek 28;14-15;and used it to oppose God and deceive the angels Rev 12:7-9; and after God created mankind he used it to deceive mankind Gen 3:4-7; Rev 20:7-10;

On the cross when Jesus was judged for our sins and died as our substitute Rom 5:8; He resolved the issue of sin 2Cor 5:21 and death John 3:16; John 11:26;

He also resolved the issue of evil with His spiritual life Rom 5:10; Eph 2:10; 1John 5:18; but He does not finish the judgment of evil and eliminate death until He throws them into the lake of fire after the great white throne judgment at the end of human history. Rev 20:11-15;
