Prov 16:18; Arrogant self-confidence goes before destruction, And an attitude of arrogant superiority before disaster.
Isaiah 14:12-17 (NET) Look how you have fallen from the sky, O shining one, son of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground, O conqueror of the nations!
13 You said to yourself, "I will climb up to the sky. Above the stars of El I will set up my throne. I will rule on the mountain of assembly on the remote slopes of Zaphon.
14 I will climb up to the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High!"
15 But you were brought down to Sheol, to the remote slopes of the pit.
16 Those who see you stare at you, they look at you carefully, thinking: "Is this the man who shook the earth, the one who made kingdoms tremble?
17 Is this the one who made the world like a desert, who ruined its cities, and refused to free his prisoners so they could return home?"
Psalm 76:10; For the wrath of man shall praise You...
Genesis 50:20; (NET) As for you, you meant to harm me, but God intended it for a good purpose, so he could preserve the lives of many people, as you can see this day.
1Corinthians 11:18-19; (NET) 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 evident.
Heb 4:12; For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thinking and motivations of the heart.
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 in cosmic one, sin nature control of the soul replaces the filling ministry of the Holy Spirit causing the believer to grieve the Holy Spirit. The power of cosmic one is the arrogance of self absorption.
In cosmic two, the interlocking systems of envy, hatred and implacability cause the believer to quench the Spirit. Cosmic two is empowered by hatred, envy ,and the lust to hurt and destroy.
Mental attitude arrogance that is anything related to preoccupation with self to the point of committing sin, human good or evil. It is satisfaction with self and dissatisfaction with others. There are at least 26 gates into satan's cosmic one arrogance system.
Negative volition arrogance from preoccupation with self causes apathy toward doctrine. The authority of the pastor or the message is rejected.
Impulsive arrogance is any abuse of authority.
Blind arrogance is the arrogance of legalism. This is being partially divorced from reality (sociopathic rather than psychotic). This includes self-righteous arrogance, that is failure to see in yourself what you criticize in others.
Conspiracy arrogance comes after institutional arrogance and results in a conspiracy to overthrow the purpose, policy, or authority of an organization.
Criminal arrogance seeks to solve problems through violence. It is total divorcement from reality. It includes terrorist and revolutionary activities.
Crusader arrogance is the self-righteous arrogance of trying to straighten out the world. A person places his personal standards above the law or any form of establishment or authority. When criminal arrogance interlocks with crusader arrogance, there is terrorism or rebellion.
Psychotic arrogance is total divorcement from all reality. It is a result of bad choices, not genetics or disadvantages. It is intense concentration on self that results in rational thought being overrun by emotion.
Sexual arrogance is preoccupation with sex and self-gratification. It is preoccupation with the body to the exclusion of the soul.
Genetic arrogance assumes that greatness in life is inherited. Parents who seek recognition through the achievement of their children have this type of arrogance.
Political arrogance results from and is interlocked with crusader arrogance. It is any human panacea that offers a human viewpoint solution to life's problems. Both liberals and conservatives can suffer from political arrogance but they approach it from opposite sides.
Political arrogance rejects the freedom of the separation of church and state and adopts a state religion or godless utopian socialism. Both state religions and godless utopian socialism leads to totalitarianism. All fascist or communist tyrannical states are established on the basis of state religion or godless utopian socialism.
Client nation arrogance emphasizes the laws of divine establishment and the function of government leadership in terms of arrogance versus humility. There are three basic forms of legitimate government.
Monarchy is the rule of one man in the interest of the common good, which under arrogance becomes tyranny, where one man rules for his own advantage.
Aristocracy is the rule of a group in the interest of the common good. Under arrogance this degenerates under cosmic system influence into an oligarchy where the group rules for their own benefit.
A republic is the rule of the better part of the people in the interest of common good. But when cosmic one arrogance enters, the republic degenerates into a democracy where the worst of the people form a tyrannical mob that suppresses freedom and rules for their own benefit.
Client nation arrogance occurs when the elected representatives abdicate their responsibilities and empower an arrogant unelected ruling class bureaucracy to run the government. Client nation arrogance occurs because of the collective arrogance of the majority of the governed who are functioning in cosmic one arrogance.
