The Angelic Conflict. Part 37. The Strategic victory of the Angelic Conflict.

Thursday, February 16, 2006

The Doctrine of the Angelic Conflict.
Point 1. Definition.
The angelic conflict is the result of prehistoric creatures being in opposition to God, which began with the fall of Satan and continued until all angelic creatures had made a decision for or against God.

Point 2. The Existence of Rational Creatures.
There are only two categories of rational creatures, angels and humans.

Point 3. When and How the Angelic Conflict Began.
The angelic conflict began after the creation of the earth and before the creation of the human race.

Point 4. The Two Categories of Fallen Angels Under the Command of Satan.
There are operational angels and non-operational angels.

Point 5. Demon attacks during the Church age.
During the Church-age, demon attacks on the unbeliever are limited to two categories: demon possession or demon influence, and on believers demon influence only.

Point 6. The Satanic Plan for Offensive Action in Human History.
Point 7. The Courtroom Trial of the Angelic Conflict.

Point 8. The Strategic Victory of the Angelic Conflict.
The strategic victory of the angelic conflict in human history is our Lord’s humanity being judged for our sins on the cross.

Having cancelled -
aor-act-part - ezaleipho = to blot out, to cancel, to erase, to eradicate, or to wipe out.

It has the connotation of someone holding an IOU against you and putting a lot of pressure on you as well.

He had to ezaleipho it, blot it out, cancel it, erase it, eradicate it, or obliterate it.
Aorist tense = that point of time when the entire debt was totally wiped out which was at the cross.

A phenomenal pressure has been removed by the grace of God.

TLJC cancelled the debt for the entire human race and Satan hates that.

God is SOVEREIGNTY, but before He can do what He sovereignly wills His justice must be satisfied.

God is perfect RIGHTEOUSNESS, and He can have fellowship with anyone who is perfectly righteous, and the justice of God provides perfect righteousness to anyone who believes on TLJC.

God is OMNIPOTENT; He has the power to do whatever He wants to do for us, but before He can use that power His justice has to be satisfied; the cross satisfied His justice.

God is OMNISCIENT, and He uses His omniscience to know every problem and difficulty we would ever have, and He also knows the solutions to those problems; however He can not use those solutions unless His justice is satisfied.

God is IMMUTABILITY; He cannot change, therefore He could never have fellowship with a sinner unless His justice did something about it.

God is LOVE, but He cannot express that love in totality unless His justice is satisfied.
God is VERACITY or truth, but He can never give that truth to us unless His justice is satisfied with us.

God is OMNIPRESENCE, but even though He is with us always, He cannot comfort us unless His justice permits Him to do so.

God is ETERNAL LIFE, but He can never give that eternal life to anyone unless His justice is satisfied.

We owe God perfect righteousness.
We owe God a perfect life.

The IOU that has been cancelled was an IOU which was totally impossible for any of us to pay.

God is a giver, and God has found a way to cancel that debt without compromising His character.

If you do not understand the grace of God in all of this, you will get involved with “false” and “pseudo” systems of spirituality which are a farce.

The phrase Alleluia is not found in the gospels or in the Church-age.

The phrase “praise the Lord” [piel stem] = to trust Him in an intense way; it does not mean to say “praise the Lord” when you see other believers.

Will you be influenced by doctrine and glorify TLJC as a member of the Royal Family or will you be influenced by evil and become what 1JO 3:10 calls a disciple of the devil or “the stereo-type Christian”?

Doctrinal ministers and ministries are not well liked by other Christians because doctrine always exposes the plastic pseudo stereo-type Christian who lacks individuality and is prey for the popular evangelists.

1. The stereo-type Christian is someone who has personally believed in Christ!
2. He is someone who is totally ignorant of God’s plan as a member of the Royal Family.

3. The stereo-type Christian is someone who has no understanding of God’s plan and therefore substitutes what he assumes or feels must be God’s plan for his life.
4. The stereo-type Christian generally concludes that the goal of the Christian life and spirituality is living moral.

5. The stereo-type Christian assumes that the key to the Christian life is a sweet personality.
6. The stereo-type Christian attends church at least once a week.

7. The stereo-type Christian classifies anyone who is relaxed and enjoys life, especially when being pressured, as being worldly or carnal.
8. The stereo-type Christian regards the mature believer as a fanatic or cultish because he has never heard certain things or certain doctrines.

9. The stereo-type Christian respects the pastor who does not have the time to study because he is too busy hustling around the church.
The sad result is the congregation never really begins to study and learn the plan of God for them as a member of the Royal Family.

10. The stereo-type Christian is always striving to be sweet but behind that facade of sweetness lies his real face of hypocrisy.
11. The average stereo-type Christian is a critic and whatever he does not understand he considers to be wrong.

12. The stereo-type Christian is not usually interested in the sermon except for its length; he wants it to be short.
13. The stereo-type Christian likes a convenient pastor, one who counsels when he needs attention and one who does not offer the challenge of truth!

14. The stereo-type Christian can be easily conned.
15. The stereo-type Christian, being ignorant of God’s plan, is proud, legalistic, self-righteous, and a dropper of spiritual words and phrases.

16. The result of the stereo-type Christian is a total failure in time and at the Bema seat judgment he is going to shrink away in embarrassment.
17. The stereo-type Christian develops mental blocks toward doctrinal teaching, 1TI 4:1; the results are an arrogant subjective believer.

18. The stereo-type Christian can counterfeit an outward righteousness through change of behavior pattern, but he cannot counterfeit an inner change of integrity.
19. The stereo-type Christian likes to use cliché’s or stereo-type holy language, calling the Lord Thee or Thou, calling people brother, and always saying “Praise the Lord.”

20. The stereo-type Christian uses facial expressions which stand for sincerity, such as the intense or serious look.

One thing about Christianity, if you do not get with doctrine after you have been saved for a while, the chances of becoming a weirdo are extremely high.

MAT 4:4 “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”
JOB 23:12 “I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth[doctrine] more than my necessary food.”

It is only the grace of God that turns spiritually dead, deep in debt mankind into a noble creature in time for all the angels to see.
It was through the cross that the IOU was cancelled.

Any believer who is so sin conscious and who feels so guilty, unworthy, condemned or ashamed, as far as their relationship with God is concerned, has been blinded by Satan concerning the work of the cross.

HEB 8:12 “For I will be merciful to their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more.”
HEB 10:17 “And their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”

MIC 7:18-19, “Who is a God like thee, who pardons iniquity and passes over the rebellious act of the remnant of His possession? Yes you will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”
PSA 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
ISA 38:17c “For You have cast all their sins behind Your back.”

PSA 103:10 “He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.”
PSA 65:3b “As for our transgressions Thou dost forgive them.”
ISA 43:25 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake [because of My honor and integrity]. Furthermore, I will not remember your sin.”

ROM 4:7-8 “Blessed are those whose lawless deeds have been forgiven and whose sins have been covered. Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will not take into account.”
ROM 11:27 He will take away our sins...
