Twelve score and four years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that God created mankind with free volition.
We are now engaged in the great lockdown hoax, testing whether this nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can survive satan's deception.
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.
1Cor 11:17-19; (NET) Now in giving the following instruction I do not praise you, because you assemble together not for the better but for the worse. 18 For in the first place, when you come together as a church I hear there are divisions among you, and in part I believe it.
19 For there must in fact be divisions among you, so that those of you who are approved may be readily perceived.
James 4:6-7; But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, "God makes war on the arrogant, but gives grace to the humble." 7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.
Heb 10:38; But My righteous one shall live by faith; And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.
Prov 28:1; The evil flee when no one is pursuing, But the righteous are bold as a lion.
Psa 34:19-22; Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.20 He protects all of his bones, none of them is broken. 21 Evil people self-destruct, and those who hate the righteous are destroyed. 22 The Lord rescues the life of His servants, all who take shelter in Him are protected.
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 with a garrison your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Psa 4:8; In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For YOU ALONE, O LORD, make me safe and secure.
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 his war against truth and righteousness. Eph 6:12; 2Cor 10:5;
Last time we noted that satan's cosmic lie focuses exclusively on temporal physical life that is based on what is visible on the earth in the devil's world and ignores what is invisible, God, Jesus Christ, and God's Word of truth in all of its categories can only be perceived on the basis of believing the doctrine. Matt 24:35; Heb 11:1-2;
This always results in causing those who are under the influence of evil to succumb to pressure from the idolatry created by their false viewpoint. An example of this is illustrated in 1Tim 6:10; "The love of money is a root of all evil..."
This verse specifically addresses the temptation of relatively poor believers to make an idol out of wealth and neglect Bible Doctrine but this verse also applies to rejecting doctrine and making an idol out of any detail of life in the devil's world including physical life itself. Matt 10:37-39;
