When it comes to salvation, there is only One way, only One true Lord.

principle in Joh 15:1, was His unique relationship with God and man; “I am the True Vine and my Father is the Vine-dresser or the Provider of the Vine.”

 

All of us need to realize the fantastic omnipotence (power) and omniscience (all knowledge) concerning our Lord, as the Unique One of the Universe and there is no other name; ACT 4:12.

 

ACT 4:12 “There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved.”

 

When it comes to salvation we have the phrase; “there is no other God.”

 

DEU 4:35, “To you it [signs and wonders] was shown that you might know that the Lord, He is God; there is no other besides Him.

 

In DEU 4:39, concerning the sovereignty or rulership of the Lord, we read;  “The Lord, He is God in heaven above and on the earth below; there is no other.”

 

Cyrus was a king who was a gentile and he also believed in Jehovah Elohim and the Lord promised him that He would guide and protect  Cyrus and his people as He promised to Abraham.

 

GEN 12:3   And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

 

Job 33:4  “And the breath from God has created me [a human being], and the breath [soul life] of the Almighty gives me [human] life.”

 

GEN 2:7  Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

 

There is no other God who separates the soul and human spirit from the physical body; ECC 12:7  Then the dust [human body] will return to the earth as it was, and the soul-life will return to God Who gave it.

 

There is no other God who creates the heavens, the planets, the stars, the earth, the angels and animals and the human race, as well as the entire universe, as ours does; Psa 8.

 

Focus on the awesomeness of God, the omnipotence of the Lord, His glory and His grace, His patience and His longsuffering, His mercy and forgiveness.

 

Not knowing this principle that “there are no other gods” is what causes many believers to be confused when they come to the Real One, our God Himself; 1CO 14:33; Isa 43:7; PRO 16:4.

 

Cyrus was a king who was a gentile and he also believed in Jehovah Elohim and the Lord promised him that He would guide and protect  Cyrus and his people as He promised to Abraham.

 

GEN 12:3   And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

 

Job 33:4  “And the breath from God has created me [a human being], and the breath [soul life] of the Almighty gives me [human] life.”

 

There is an intimacy that the Lord will share with you the treasures of darkness and the hidden wealth of secret places.

 

ISA 45:4  “For the sake of Jacob” My servant =  Jacob represents rebound and recovery.

 

And Israel My chosen one — Israel means “prince with God” and it represents Jacob rebounding and recovering and becoming a prince with God through repentance.

 

The final phrase reveals the lovingkindness and the compassion that  our Lord has for all of us; “I have also called you by your name; I have given you a title of honor even though you have not known Me.”

 

Even if we have been unfaithful to Him, He is faithful to us;  “though you have not known Me;” He still is faithful to us in all things and will protect us because as He has said; “I am the Lord, and there is no other;

 

Speaking about the glory and the love and power of God on a day by day basis and being immutable He guarantees He controls the universe, and “there is no one besides Him.

 

One of the main principles that the disciples must begin to learn and to adapt to is the Three-fold Ministry of the Trinity and the role and the function of each one.

 

Policies = grace and truth
Salvation = faith alone in Christ alone

 

Truth is still being taught;
Doctrine is still changing people.
No one forced our Lord to go to the Cross.

 

Goal of Satan’s Deceptions =  destroy the different forms of intimacy, relationships and fellowship that Satan and the kingdom of darkness will attack whenever they can.

 

Goal =  break down the unity that exists between believers and our Lord and it  is also the demonization of the soul and personality of the believers or unbelievers who are living in the cosmic system.

 

There are degrees of deception so don’t try and play God,  He will always be righteous and just in His evaluation of both believers and unbelievers; Gal 6:7; ROM 12:19.

 

ROM 12:19  Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.

 

There are also Degrees of Deception which is taught in passages like MAT 11:21-24.

 

MAT 11:22 which says that “it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you [Pharisees].

 

Deception is thought transference of demon doctrine to the believer or unbeliever in the cosmic system.

 

By thought transference I do not mean that you are thinking like members of the occult, but I am referring to human viewpoint or cosmic thinking.

 Deception is the invasion of the soul, especially the mind, emotion, and self‑consciousness of the soul.

 

Result =  the “invasion” of the human personality of the believer or unbeliever who lives in the cosmic system and grows weirder and weirder as time goes by, Deu 28:34.

 

He also warned them what would happen if they do not obey or if they did not respect and esteem His Word; Psa 56:4,10, Psa 138:2.

 

Our Lord also wants us to know the negative side of what will happen if we refuse to honor and obey His word because the Divine Solutions are given to the believer as the remedy for anything.

 

God the Holy Spirit inspired Moses to  use a very powerful word in the Hebrew language to describe what will ultimately happen to God’s people if they reject and ignore His ways and that is the word shiggaon.

 

Shiggaon = to go nuts, crazy, to be unstable, to be bipolar, in the natural realm as well as the spiritual realm, it means to be depressed and to a life filled with habitual lies.

 

DEU 28:34  “And you shall be driven mad by the sight of what you see.”

 

 “shargar” = to drive a person mad or crazy, to experience severe changes in mood, activity, energy, and ability and ending up, of course, with the blame game to make excuses for being a complete loser and failure.

 

The shiggaon believer, therefore, ends up attacking others because they are jealous and vindictive and because they have no spiritual self-esteem at all, and because of that they are also liars, phonies, and hypocrites.

 

The shiggaon believer lives in Denial which is a defense mechanism in which a person fails to acknowledge some aspect of external reality that is obvious and apparent to others.

 

The Shiggaon Projection is a defense mechanism by which a person takes their own flaws, sins and failures and assigns or projects them to others.

 

There is also what psychology calls “Direct Attack” which is a defense mechanism in which anger is used as a solution to the problems and frustrations of life.

 

We call this psychosomatics which means that how and what we think can produce physical reactions that are caused or aggravated by a mental factor such as internal conflict or stress.

 

This simply says,  “You are what you eat!”  (Mentally; Spiritually, Physically).

 

Deception is not only expressed in terms of evil but, it also expressed in terms of improving this world, doing nice things for your fellow man, and supporting crusades.

 

“A Landmark Message.”

 

Deception is the invasion of the soul with thought that is false thinking, i.e., the policy and principles by which Satan operated prior to the creation of man and afterwards as the ruler of this world.

 

But under diving timing, they will be able to bear and accept whatever it is that the Lord desires for us them to bear and to accept.

 

Eph 4:14,  We are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming;

 

2Pe 3:17,  You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the deception of unprincipled men [men with no principles], you fall from your own steadfastness,

 

Only the truth can keep false thinking and false doctrine out of the soul.

 

Deception = a process of demonization in which every facet of the soul is eventually controlled by demon doctrine, so that there is a complete personality change to some form of sociopathic or psychopathic personality.

 

There are many sins a person can commit that are designed by Satan and his kingdom to wear down the saints of our Lord; Dan 7:25.

 

If the sins of arrogance are allowed to continue, it is inevitable that the believer in Cosmic will become an abnormal person.

 

Even members of our own family become bitter, angry, judgmental, critical, and in some cases even commit murder mentally toward other individuals because they secretly harbor jealousy and hatefulness.

 

Shiggaon = in the Old Testament psychology calls the bi-polar personality of a sick head and a deceitful heart; Jer 17:9.

 

The prophet Isaiah said that these types of individuals are usually bullheaded from the top of their head to the bottom of their feet.

 

Isaiah warned those who were influenced by the Cosmic system that there is nothing worth anything without life with Christ.

 

ISA 1:5   Where will you be stricken again or attacked mentally as you continue in your rebellion? The whole head is sick, And the whole heart is faint.

 

ISA 1:6  From the sole of the foot even to the head there is nothing sound in it, only bruises, welts, and raw wounds, Not pressed out or bandaged, nor softened with oil.

 

Job 15:14-16, “man is vile and corrupt, and he who drinks up evil like water.

 

“Dante’s Inferno” = nothing more than an allegory, or just a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal hidden meanings.

 

An allegory also , or a book on a symbolic journey of a main character through the depths of the underworld, to purgatory, and finally to paradise where he is reunited with his loved one.

 

As a popular illustration of this principle; “Satan and the kingdom of Darkness promotes the false doctrines of Dante’s Inferno.”

 

Dante’s Inferno =  an allegory that is filled with satanic viewpoint and doctrines of demons designed to mislead and ultimately deceive the entire human race.

 

There are seven deadly sins listed in the Bible that are called the worst sins man can commit.

 

Dante’s Inferno:
(1) Pride;
(2) Envy;
(3) Gluttony;
(4) Lust;
(5) Anger;
(6) Greed;
(7) Sloth.

 

To be accurate and doctrinally correct, we should look upon God’s opinion of sin as stated in Pro 6:16-19.

 

(1) Arrogance;
(2) A lying tongue;
(3) Murder; shed innocent blood;
(4) A heart that devises wicked plans;
(5) Feet that run rapidly to evil;
(6) A false witness who utters lies,
(7) One who spreads strife among brothers.

 

Some of the most difficult things to teach on is Satanology, Demonism, and especially  the Doctrine of the Angelic Conflict.
