Eighteen principles = the Deceptions that Satan and his kingdom of Darkness uses to attack believers who truly know and understand the mystery doctrine of the Church-age.
The Church-age was never mentioned in Old Testament prophecy but instead was fully developed in the New Testament Epistles; Rom 16:25-27, Col 1:25-26; Eph 3:3-6.
The Church-age, which we are all a part of, and its doctrine was never mentioned in Old Testament prophecy but instead was fully developed in the New Testament Epistles.
There is no excuse for ignorance on the part of any believer who lives in the dispensation of the Church-age to neglect or reject the Mystery Doctrine of the Church-age.
Ignorance and arrogance are two worst enemies of the believer and cause him to make wrong assessments of life because they have the wrong priorities.
Before we look at the importance of our Position in Christ and not our “Condition in Adam,” -- the Bible describes the condition of the Old Sin Nature in different ways.
Our position in Adam is described in different ways such as using different nouns that describe the old sin nature as it relates to the spiritual life that God has ordained for every single believer.
It is the meaning of these nouns that our “fallen state” is the problem of Total Depravity.
Total Depravity means that every person born into the world is enslaved to sin and evil.
Total depravity is the fallen state of human beings as a result of original sin; Psa 51:5; Psa 58:3 The wicked crawl from the wrong side of the cradle; their first words out of the womb are lies.
Total depravity = described by some of the names or titles that are being used by God the Holy Spirit to inspire the writers of scripture.
The Old Man
The Old Sin Nature
The Carnal believer
The Body of Sin
- If you’re sad, our Lord can offer the divine solution of inner happiness.
- If you’re becoming hard and insensitive to others, He can offer you the divine solutions and soften your heart.
- If you’re feeling that you are carrying a heavy load, maybe too heavy, He provides just for you the divine solution to lighten up that load.
- If you’re thinking about yourself too highly and because He loves you personally as your Father, He will provide the divine solutions for the believer to think lowly or in humility.
- If you are going IN the wrong direction for living the spiritual life, He will get you OUT.
The Divine Solutions are based on the doctrine of the Impeccability of the humanity of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who was tempted far beyond anything anyone has ever known, but he resisted all temptation.
1CO 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it.
The Divine Solution -- HEB 2:18 For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
HEB 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.
Divine Solutions are given for the believer to handle any stress in life; 2Ti 3:4‑7; Psa 56:3‑4.
Adversity is inevitable, stress is optional.
Divine Solutions = times when solutions are not immediate but progressive and take a little longer than what we expected; Mat 18:12.
Divine Solutions always glorify God. 2Co 12:9‑10; 2Co 4:8; 2Co 6:4.
Divine solutions have solved the total depravity of man regarding salvation and rebound; 1Co 3:1; Eph 4:22-24.
God's solutions are the only solutions that really matter. 2Co 2:12‑13; 2Co 7:5.
Divine solutions also are minus human works. Rom 11:5-6.
Emotion in God's solutions; Rom 5:8; 1Pe 2:24.
Prayer not a solution in spiritual life. Mat 26:36‑42;
Everyone of us should use only divine solutions when tested. 1Co 10:13; 2Co 12:7‑9.
Describing His relationship with the human race, all of should realize the tremendous omnipotence and omniscience concerning our Lord, as the Unique One of the universe.
His deity was not able to sin; His humanity was able not to sin also known to you as the Doctrine of Kenosis and described for you with that very popular and wise statement made by Saint Augustine.
In His Hypostatic Union as the God-man, Jesus Christ was undiminished deity and true humanity in one person forever.
In His deity, it is impossible or our Lord to sin, therefore, “He is” and always “will be” “non posse peccare" which means that our Lord “was not able to sin.”
In His humanity, He was also known as “posse non peccare” which means that our Lord was “able not to sin” in His human nature.
Our Lord was not able to sin because He is God and God cannot sin.
In His deity, “He is “non posse peccare" which means that our Lord “was not able to sin.”
In His humanity, He was “posse non peccare” which means that our Lord was “able not to sin” with His human nature even though He was tempted beyond anything we could ever imagine.
He willfully laid down His life for us and rejected all areas of the sin nature, which can produce sin and evil and human good and therefore everything is rejected by the Lord.
Truth is still being taught;
Doctrine is still changing people.
No one forced our Lord to go to the Cross.
Goal of Satan’s Deceptions = is to destroy the different forms of intimacy, relationship and fellowship, that I gave you where Satan and the kingdom of darkness will attack whenever they can.
Goal = use satanic deception to try and break down the unity that exists between believers and our Lord and it is also the demonization of the soul and personality of the believers or unbelievers who are living in the cosmic system.
As a source for comfort, there are degrees of deception so don’t try and play God, He will always be righteous and just in His evaluation of both believers and unbelievers; Gal 6:7; Rom 12:19.
Rom 12:19 Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says the Lord.
There are also Degrees of Deception which is taught in passages like MAT 11:21-24.
MAT 11:22 "it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you [Pharisees].
Deception is thought transference of demon doctrine to the believer or unbeliever in the cosmic system.
Thought Transference -- I do not mean that you are thinking like members of the occult, but I am referring to human viewpoint or cosmic thinking.
Deception is the invasion of the soul, especially the mind, emotion, and self‑consciousness of the soul.
Result = the "invasion" of the human personality of the believer or unbeliever who lives in the cosmic system and grows weirder and weirder as time goes by, Deu 28:34.
He also warned them what would happen if they do not obey or if they did not respect and esteem His Word; Psa 56:4,10, Psa 138:2.
Our Lord also wants us to know the negative side of what will happen if we refuse to honor and obey His word because the Divine Solutions are given to the believer as the remedy for any spiritual problems.
God the Holy Spirit inspired Moses to use a very powerful word in the Hebrew language to describe what will ultimately happen to God’s people if they reject and ignore His ways and that is the word shiggaon.
Shiggaonshagar = to go nuts, crazy, to be unstable, to be bipolar, in the natural realm as well as the spiritual realm, it means to be depressed and to a life filled with habitual lies.
DEU 28:34 "And you shall be driven mad by the sight of what you see.”
“Shiggaon” means to drive a person mad or crazy, to experience severe changes in mood, activity, energy, and ability and ending up with the blame game to make excuses for being a complete loser and failure.
The shiggaon believer ends up attacking others because they are jealous and vindictive and because they have no spiritual self-esteem at all, and because of that they are also liars, phonies, and hypocrites.
The shiggaon believer lives in Denial which is a defense mechanism in which a person fails to acknowledge some aspect of external reality that is obvious and apparent to others.
The Shiggaon Projection is a defense mechanism by which a person takes their own flaws, sins and failures and assigns or projects them to others.
“Direct Attack” which is a defense mechanism in which anger is used as a solution to the problems and frustrations of life.
Psychosomatics -- how and what we think can produce physical reactions that are caused or aggravated by a mental factor such as internal conflict or stress.
Deception is not only expressed in terms of evil but, it also expressed in terms of improving this world, doing nice things for your fellow man, and supporting crusades.
“A Landmark Message.”
Deception is the invasion of the soul with thought that is false thinking, i.e., the policy and principles by which Satan operated prior to the creation of man and afterwards as the ruler of this world.
Under diving timing, they will be able to bear and accept whatever it is that the Lord desires for us them to bear and to accept.
Eph 4:14, 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;
2Pe 3:17, You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard lest, being carried away by the deception of unprincipled men [men with no principles], you fall from your own steadfastness,
Only the truth can keep false thinking and false doctrine out of the soul.
Deception is a process of demonization in which every facet of the soul is eventually controlled by demon doctrine, so that there is a complete personality change to some form of sociopathic or psychopathic personality.
There are many sins a person can commit that are designed by Satan and his kingdom to wear down the saints of our Lord; Dan 7:25.
If the sins of arrogance are allowed to continue, it is inevitable that the believer in Cosmic will become an abnormal person.
Even members of our own family, become bitter, angry, judgmental, critical, and in some cases even commit murder mentally toward other individuals because they secretly harbor jealousy and hatefulness.
Shiggaon -- the OT word for being mad, or crazy or, even as one Hebrew scholar said, that Shaggaon is, in fact, what psychology calls the bi-polar personality of a sick head and a deceitful heart; Jer 17:9.
The prophet Isaiah said that these types of individuals are usually bullheaded from the top of their head to the bottom of their feet.
ISA 1:5 Where will you be stricken again or attacked mentally as you continue in your rebellion? The whole head is sick, And the whole heart is faint.
ISA 1:6 From the sole of the foot even to the head there is nothing sound in it, only bruises, welts, and raw wounds, Not pressed out or bandaged, nor softened with oil.
Job 15:14-16, "man is vile and corrupt, and he who drinks up evil like water.
“Dante’s Inferno” -- nothing more than an allegory, or just a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal hidden meanings.
An allegory is a book on a symbolic journey of a main character through the depths of the underworld, to purgatory, and finally to paradise where he is reunited with his loved one.
Dante's Inferno is an allegory that is filled with satanic viewpoint and doctrines of demons designed to mislead and ultimately deceive the entire human race concerning who Satan really is and what is it that Satan he desires.
Dante’s Inferno states that there are seven deadly sins listed in the Bible that are called the worst sins man can commit.
The seven deadly sins that Dante’s inferno lists are:
To be accurate and doctrinally correct, we should look upon God’s opinion of sin as stated in Pro 6:16-19.
(2) A lying tongue;
(3) Murder; shed innocent blood;
(4) A heart that devises wicked plans;
(5) Feet that run rapidly to evil;
(6) A false witness who utters lies,
(7) One who spreads strife among brothers.
Now, with all of this in mind, remember that some of the most difficult things to teach on is Satanology, Demonism, and especially the Doctrine of the Angelic Conflict.
