2Chron 7:13-14; "If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people, (14) and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
1 Peter 4:15-19; (NET) But let none of you suffer as a murderer or thief or criminal or as a busybody. (16) But if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but glorify God that you bear such a name.
17 For it is time for judgment to begin, starting with the house of God. And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who are disobedient to the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous are barely saved, what will become of the ungodly and sinners?
19 So then let those who suffer according to the will of God entrust their souls to a faithful Creator as they do good.
1John 4:18; There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
2Tim 1:7; For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and rational thought.
1Cor 2:14-16; But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God because in his status of spiritual or cosmic brain death, he thinks God's thoughts are stupid; and he cannot understand them, because they are only understood by means of the spirit.
15 But he who is spiritual (the one who is filled with the thinking of Christ by means of the spirit) understands all things, yet no one else understands him (he is an enigma to them because they are spiritually brain dead).
16 For who has known the thinking of the Lord, that teaches Him? We do because we have the mind of Christ.
Heb 2:14-15; Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, (15) and might free those who because of their fear of death were enslaved all of their lives because of their fear of death.
1Cor 11:19; For there must be divisions among you, so that those among you who are approved may be clearly seen.
Phil 4:4-7 Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!
5 Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.
6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
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 were noting that when the filling of the Holy Spirit plus Bible Doctrine establish residence, function, and momentum inside the believer's soul divine viewpoint thinking is deployed that results in evil thinking being rejected.
Impersonal love from maximum doctrine in the soul eliminates evil. It requires the filling ministry of the spirit combined with a copious amount of doctrine in the thinking to reject evil. 1Cor 2:14-16; Isa 55:8-11; Rom 8:5-8;
