What it means to be initiated into the secret of the mystery. Part 100. The antagonism of the world system toward believers and Bible doctrine. Part 3.

Christ is gone and every believer who is still on the earth in the intensified stage angelic conflict is now a target, always will be a target; there never will be a time when you will not be a target.
It is a type of thought; it is a thought, it is a system, it involves certain people.
That system is religionism, that system is legalism, and it despises you, and as soon as you learn a little grace, you are going to see from what directions you are being shot at.
GAL 4:29 But as at that time he who was born according to the flesh persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, so it is now also.
1. Because the kosmos system hates Christ, and we are related to Christ.
Because it hated Christ before us.
2. Because once a person is in the plan of God, as a believer priest, they no longer belong to the world.
COL 1:13 For He delivered us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
PHI 3:20 For our citizenship [politeuma, or heavenly privilege] exists in heaven, from which place we eagerly anticipate the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;
“You were” = imperf-act-subj - en
If you were from the world, literally, and you are not.
Love - imperf-act- ind - ephilei - e*fivlei = a personal rapport love.
“Next to the lie itself, the greatest delusion that God imposes reaching to all unsaved, and to a large portion of Christians is the supposition that only such things that society considers evil could originate from the devil.”
“It is not the reason of man, but the revelation of God, which points out that governments, morals, education, art, commercialism, vast enterprises and organizations and much religious activity are included in kosmos diabolicos.”
Kosmos diabolicos = that system which Satan has constructed and includes all of the good (human good) which he can incorporate into it, and be consistent with the things he aims to accomplish.
A serious question arises; whether the presence of gross evil in the world is due to Satan’s intention to have it so, or whether it indicates Satan’s inability to execute all that he has designed. The probability is great that Satan’s ambition has led him to undertake more than any creature could ever administer.
Revelation declares that the whole kosmos system must be annihilated, not its evil alone, but all that is in it, both good and evil. God will incorporate nothing of Satan’s failure into the kingdom which He has set up on earth.
God will incorporate nothing of Satan’s failure into the kingdom which He has set up on earth.
At this time that kingdom is the church, born again believers, the Church-age.
God will not permit anything in His plan that has its origin from Satan, including human good, reform, revolutions, and a lot of things that you may condone as an individual believer, lacking discernment.
Since the day of your salvation, you have been in union with Christ, you are in the plan of God by the baptism of the Spirit, by all of the 40 things or more that happened at the moment of salvation.
The kosmos must therefore hate the believer, hate doctrine, hate anything that causes the believer to stand up to the kosmos system.
There is a difference between loving the souls of men, witnessing therefore, and the system under which men operate.
JOH 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
Billions and billions of years ago, when election was put into operation, EPH 1:4-5, you were snatched out of the kosmos or the cosmic system.
Whatever Satan thinks of you up to that moment, he despises you the second that you believe in Christ.
Pres-act-ind - miseo = it keeps on hating.
