Exodus 20:3-6; "You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.
5 "You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6 but showing lovingkindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
Hosea 4:6; My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.
Romans 3:10-18; as it is written, "There is none righteous, not even one;
11 There is none who understands, There is none who seeks for God;
12 All have turned aside, together they have become useless; There is none who does good, There is not even one."
13 "Their throat is an open grave, With their tongues they keep deceiving," "The poison of asps is under their lips";
14 "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness";
15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood,
16 Destruction and misery are in their paths,
17 And the path of peace they have not known."
18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes."
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.
Every generation has to make a decision regarding whither they will follow God or satan and there are consequences for making the wrong decision for several generations. We see this generational test playing out for the third and fourth generation in the streets of our cities at this time.
Isaiah 3:12; Youths oppress my people, women rule over them. O my people, your teachers lie to you and tell you to go the wrong way.
2Pet 2:1-22; But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.
2 Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned;
3 and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.
4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment;
5 and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly;
6 and if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter;
7 and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men
8 (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds),
9 then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment,
10 and especially those who indulge the flesh in its corrupt desires and despise authority. Daring, self-willed, they do not tremble when they revile angelic majesties,
11 whereas angels who are greater in might and power do not bring a reviling judgment against them before the Lord.
12 But these, like unreasoning animals, born as creatures of instinct to be hunted down and killed, reviling where they have no knowledge, will in the destruction of those creatures also be destroyed,
13 suffering wrong as the wages of doing wrong. They count it a pleasure to revel in the daytime. They are stains and blemishes, reveling in their deceptions, as they carouse with you,
14 having eyes full of adultery that never cease from sin, enticing unstable souls, having a heart trained in greed, accursed children;
15 forsaking the right way, they have gone astray, having followed the way of Balaam, the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 but he received a rebuke for his own transgression, for a mute donkey, speaking with a voice of a man, restrained the madness of the prophet.
17 These are springs without water and mists driven by a storm, for whom the black darkness has been reserved.
18 For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error,
19 promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved.
20 For if, after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first.
21 For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them.
22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb, "A dog returns to its own vomit," and, "A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire."
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 God's Word of truth. Eph 6:12; 2Cor 10:5;
We are noting the 9 gates that lead into the hatred of satan's cosmic two system. When we stopped last time we noted that anti-establishment degeneration occurs when the soul is antagonistic to the laws of divine establishment and legitimate authority.
2Tim 3:2-3; teaches that this begins in the home with "disobedience to parents." This is ingrained antagonism toward authority. Rom 1:28-32; is a good illustration of anti- establishment degeneration.
These people believe in redistribution of wealth, over- taxation, legislation to solve all problems, sameness in life, big government and little people where citizens are slaves of the state, regulation of private enterprise, confiscation of private property, and utopian socialism.
God's Word of truth is rejected and exchanged for satan's cosmic panaceas that are man's attempts to improve the world apart from truth. Any solution to a problem that is sought apart from divine truth is a cosmic panacea.
Cosmic panaceas reject all categories of God's grace policy including salvation by grace and spirituality by grace.
Instead of the pursuit freedom and the blessing by association that comes from the unequal prosperity that freedom creates, the arrogant demand social justice and equality.
"The end justifies the means" is the motto of cosmic two.
In their pursuit of social reengineering the purveyors of cosmic panaceas use violence, terrorism, and revolution.
The state trains the children to be obedient to the dictates of the state rather than to parents resulting in a complete rejection of the legitimate authority and freedom based on divine establishment.
Religion with its ritualism and legalism is Satan's counterfeit for God's grace policy and plan. Christianity is not a religion, but is a relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ on the basis of grace and faith. Religion is man through man's effort seeking to obtain God's acceptance. 2Cor 11:13-15; describes religious leaders.
2Tim 3:7-8; and 2Pet 2:1-3; also describe religious people who oppose doctrine, who are men with depraved (degenerate) thinking, who are disqualified from the grace blessing that is conveyed on the basis of the faith (doctrine)..."combats evil.
