Fear will torment you and punish you. Part 12. The Mental Attitude of Sin.
Wednesday, October 19, 2011
2CO 10:3-6 is a very important passage to note concerning the principle of fear which manifests itself also in the MAS OF WORRY.
There is a war and a battle but it’s not with people and it’s not in the natural realm.
Speculations – accusative masculine plural noun logismos = thoughts and reasons.
1. All warfare is based on deception.
Any area that you do not have sound doctrine in, is an area open to deception which means that anything that we think or do, that is not oriented to the way God thinks, is open to deception. Deception is thought transference of demon doctrine to the believer or unbeliever in the cosmic system.
1CO 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, let him become foolish [realize that he is a fool] that he may become wise.
Even the woman in the garden, who was perfect and didn’t have an O.S.N. ended up deceived by the craftiness and subtlety of Satan.
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.
According to the Bible, she was not just tricked and partially deceived, but in 1TI 2:14, quite deceived.
1TI 2:14 And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being “quite” deceived, fell into transgression.
Deception is the invasion of the soul, especially the mind, emotion, and
self-consciousness of the soul.
