Gen 2:15-17; Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.
16 The Lord God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;
17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die."
Deut 30:15-20; "See, I have set before you today life and prosperity, and death and adversity;
16 in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways and to keep His commandments and His statutes and His judgments, that you may live and multiply, and that the Lord your God may bless you in the land where you are entering to possess it.
17 "But if your heart turns away and you will not obey, but are drawn away and worship other gods and serve them,
18 I declare to you today that you shall surely perish. You will not prolong your days in the land where you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess it.
19 "I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. So choose life in order that you may live, you and your descendants,
20 by loving the Lord your God, by obeying His voice, and by holding fast to Him; for this is your life and the length of your days, that you may live in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them."
Joshua 24:14-15; "Now, therefore, fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord.
15 "If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
John 3:19-21;"This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil.
20 "For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
21 "But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
Matt 10:34-36; "Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
35 "For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
36 and a man's enemies will be the members of his household.
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.
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;
We are now noting the 26 gates that lead into the arrogance of satan's cosmic one system. When we stopped last time we noted the arrogance of lust that occurs when legitimate desire is linked with arrogance. Inordinate desire is lust. Desire is not wrong, but lust is. Lust is arrogant preoccupation with one's desires.
Pseudo-intellectual arrogance is the superimposition of human I.Q. over spiritual I.Q. Arrogance rejects divine viewpoint. It glorifies human speculation to the exclusion of Bible doctrine, or seeks to reconcile Bible doctrine with some false philosophical, psychological, or scientific speculation.
Pseudo-love arrogance is the attempt of anyone to duplicate the principles or function of true love while residing in the cosmic system.
Suicidal arrogance occurs when self pity and self-absorption from permanently locked-in arrogance motivates a person to take their own life.
There are at least 9 gates that enter into satan's system of cosmic two hatred.
The first gate is negative volition to doctrine. This person resists doctrine because he is antagonistic to truth, to God, and to the things of God. He is the enemy of God's plan.
Evil is a thought or motive long before it becomes a function or action. Isa 14:13; Ezek 28:15; People are degenerate because of the way they think, and it is why they do what they do.
You have to be preoccupied with yourself before you can be antagonistic toward doctrine in cosmic two. This is characterized by antagonism toward everyone associated with the God, His policy and His system. This negative volition functions in three categories.
