The cosmic system is Satan’s policy for the rulership of this world.
Friday, August 15, 2003
Satan has one goal in the life of every believer – to lead all believers astray.
The cosmic system is Satan’s classroom for deception.
The cosmic system – kosmos = a system, a system of thinking, a lifestyle.
The cosmic system is Satan’s strategy as the ruler of this world to control believers.
a. Cosmic one is Satan’s exploitation of believers through their own arrogance.
Satan invented arrogance, for arrogance was his original sin.
Cosmic two is Satan’s propaganda and indoctrination college to educate and promote antagonism toward anything related to God, especially the grace of God.
Cosmic one represents Satan’s attitude at the time of his prehistoric fall, Isa 14.
Cosmic two represents Satan’s attitude at the time of Adam’s fall in the garden of Eden.
GEN 3:4-5 “You surely shall not die! For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Cosmic one emphasizes arrogance and abnormal preoccupation with self.
Cosmic two emphasizes antagonism and intolerance toward the plan, purpose, and will of God, as well as toward all Christians executing it.
Cosmic one is Satan’s philosophy in the prehistoric angelic conflict.
Cosmic two is Satan’s philosophy in human history as the ruler of this world.
The target of cosmic one is yourself; the target of cosmic two is grace and Bible doctrine.
In cosmic one, we destroy ourselves.
In cosmic two, we become antagonistic toward Bible doctrine.
a. Self related to arrogance, and therefore divorced from the reality of God’s plan.
b. Antagonism toward Bible doctrine.
Cosmic one emphasizes self in contrast to God.
Cosmic two emphasizes human viewpoint in contrast to divine viewpoint.
a. Demon possession of unbelievers only. Demon possession = demon invasion into the body of an unbeliever by one or more demons.
Demon possession is generally related to religion, the phallic cult, and the emotional revolt of the soul.
Demons possess so much energy that when they indwell a human being, all sorts of neurotic and psychotic behavior is manifest.
b. Demon influence of unbelievers. Demon influence = the demon invasion of the soul through the doctrine of demons, cosmic thinking.
This protection starts with his volition, and how he uses it in relation to the only system of truth which an unbeliever can understand – the laws of divine establishment.
One of the easiest ways for the unbeliever to live in Satan’s cosmic system is to reject legitimate authority in life found in the laws of divine establishment.
Demon influence is the invasion of the soul with Satanic propaganda, the doctrine of demons.
Demon invasion of thought affects self-consciousness, volition, and mental attitude.
EPH 4:27 Do not give the devil an opportunity.
You resist the devil by life inside the PPOG, the filling of the Spirit, enforced and genuine humility.
Perception of doctrine is the function of our royal priesthood. Application of doctrine is the function of our royal ambassadorship; the result is momentum in the spiritual life.
“Purify your right lobes, you double minded” – refers to those who are involved in the two cosmic systems.
We do not have the ability nor strength to carry our worries, our problems or anxieties, the pressures of life.
