Thrown down –
aor-pass-ind – ballo = you throw a ball, and you throw Satan out of heaven with the same verb.
Passive voice – Satan receives the action of the verb – he being thrown out.
Indicative mood – declarative for the reality of cleansing heaven from all fallen angels led by Satan, himself.
To call – pres-act-part – kaleo = to call, to name, to surname, a nickname.
Circumstantial participle is used to introduce the name diabolos – slanderer, accuser.
Diaballo = to slander, to accuse, to gossip, to malign.
Satan – Satanas = a surname or title meaning accuser, deceiver or adversary.
Deceives – pres-act-part – planon – planwn = to deceive, to lead others away from the truth, to cause to wander, to lead others aside.
Anything that we think or do, that is not oriented to the way God thinks, is open to deception.
Deception is the demonization of the soul and personality of the believer or unbeliever living in the cosmic system.
Deception is thought transference of demon doctrine to the believer or unbeliever in the cosmic system.
2CO 11:3 But I am afraid, lest as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds should be led astray [deceived] from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
Deception is the invasion of the soul, especially the mind, emotion, and self-consciousness of the soul.
EPH 4:14 As a result, 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;
The cosmic system is Satan’s classroom for deception.
Cosmic one emphasizes preoccupation with self; cosmic two emphasizes antagonism toward the truth.
Cosmic one represents Satan’s attitude at the time of his prehistoric fall – the 5 “I wills.”
Cosmic one emphasizes the individual being totally independent from God and unwilling to even adhere to any divine principles.
If the sins of arrogance are allowed to continue, it is inevitable that the believer in cosmic one will become an abnormal person.
