Before we conclude our important teaching on the doctrine of fear, we need to note a few more principles.
The believer is only protected from the deception behind fear through residual doctrine or doctrine residing in their soul.
EPH 3:17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts by means of faith.
The cosmic system is Satan’s classroom for the deception behind fear.
Human history is the resolution of the prehistoric angelic conflict.
In order to vindicate himself and His judgment of the fallen angels, God conceived a plan by which sinful human beings could glorify Him.
On the other hand, in order to justify his rejection of the prehistoric grace offer from God, Satan conceived a plan or a system designed to counteract the plan of God.
1. To keep unbelievers from believing in Jesus Christ by attacking the gospel by destroying it.
2. Replacing it.
3. The attack against the soul is addiction.
4. The purpose is to destroy the believer’s relationship with God.
5. The Sin nature – Satan’s secret agent.
6. Self-righteous legalism.
7. Lascivious lawlessness.
8. The lust pattern of the old sin nature.
a. Power lust is the worst of all, for almost all other lusts are related to this one, especially if you have any inferiority problems.
b. Approbation lust is merely one of the extensions of power lust, and it is separate because some people do want approbation without power.
c. Stimulation lust has many parts, in which we cater to the nerve centers and functions of our body in the name of pleasure.
(1) Sexual lust, or lasciviousness
(3) Drug addiction
(4) Mental stimulation or intellectual arrogance
(5) Killer lust is the problem solving device of the weak.
(6) Anger lust or cruelty. Anger does not always but definitely can bring out a cruel streak.
Cosmic one emphasizes preoccupation with self; cosmic two emphasizes antagonism toward the truth.
Cosmic one is Satan’s exploitation of believers through their own arrogance.
Cosmic one represents Satan’s attitude at the time of his prehistoric fall [the 5 “I will’s”].
LUK 10:18 And He said to them, “I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.”
Cosmic One also emphasizes the individual being totally independent from God and not willing 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.
Once this abnormality sets in, there is a system of locked-in arrogance that totally rejects truth or distorts truth by hallucination.
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 two represents Satan’s attitude at the time of Adam’s fall in the Garden of Eden.
Cosmic two emphasizes antagonism and intolerance toward the plan, purpose, and will of God, as well as toward all Christians executing it.
Cosmic two is Satan’s philosophy in human history as the ruler of this world.
Cosmic two emphasizes human viewpoint living in contrast to the divine viewpoint of spiritual living.
So the believer out of fellowship can commit either prehistoric or historic categories of sins.
Cosmic one is rejection of doctrine because you are preoccupied with yourself, which is an indirect rejection of doctrine.
Cosmic two is also negative volition toward doctrine, but true rejection is due to antagonism toward doctrine.
Satan always uses an agent to represent him and his evil policy.
Satan’s greatest weapon is a conversation because Satan is the greatest genius that ever came from the hand of God.
In his first approach he introduces doubt to the woman.
He tries to make her focus in on the prohibitions rather than the divine provisions.
Satan’s first weapon was neither terror nor intimidation, nor threatening; his first and most brilliant weapon has always been conversation.
GEN 2:16 “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;”
Satan is a master at twisting the scriptures, distorting the scriptures, and misinterpreting the scriptures, which is all a part of Satan’s
She was so occupied with the sin of disobedience and not eating the fruit that evil crept in, which is cosmic two.
Satan tries to get us involved with good and evil so that he can and blind us from grace and doctrine.
Opened – niphil perfect – paqah.
The niphil stem is a passive voice but more than that it has a suffix.
It is a third common plural suffix which says y’all or both of you.
MAT 6:22 “The lamp of the body is the eye; if therefore your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.”
MAT 6:23 “But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!”
2CO 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
2CO 11:15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness;
Naked – erom = their physical body was no longer covered by light.
Satan’s first objective in this temptation was to take control of the world from Adam.
His second objective was to defeat God in the courtroom appeal trial of the angelic conflict, which he did not succeed in doing.
When you understand that human good plus sin equals evil, you will understand the policy of Satan, and the genius of Satan as the ruler of this world.
ISA 64:6 “All our righteous deeds are like menstrual rags.”
Sin and human good = Evil.
Grace and doctrine = Divine good.
Loin coverings – chagorah = to cover around the waist.
After the original sin of Adam and the woman, the first act of spiritual death was an act of human good and the function of legalism.
There were two possible solutions; the divine solution is regeneration, which, for the moment, they rejected.
Legalism or human good is the other solution, the wrong solution, and that’s the one that they adopted.
To aspire to leadership in God’s kingdom requires us to be willing to pay a price higher than others are willing to pay.
JER 45:5 Should you then seek great things for yourself? Seek them not.
Rewards for the work of leading the church were hardship, contempt, rejection, and even death.
The leader, overseer, or Pastor was in Paul’s day, and in some cases, still is today, the first to draw fire in persecution and first in line to suffer.
