Cosmic 1 & Cosmic 2 are the educational and attack systems of Satan falling under the category of Mid or Close Range Combat.

HOS 6:6 For I delight in loyalty rather than sacrifice, and in the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

Christian works & service in the cosmic system done outside the PPOG is wood, hay & straw. 1Cor 3:11-16

Your goal is salvation & knowledge that you can offer a lost and dying world not cleaning up the cosmic system.

1CO 3:11 For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. You can neither add nor take anything away from this fact!

It doesn’t matter if you do all the wonderful works & deeds humanly possible, salvation and forgiveness can only be achieved work of Jesus Christ.

1CO 3:13 each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it, because it is to be revealed with fire; and the fire itself will test the (Hopoios) manner or type of quality of each man’s work.

1CO 3:15 If any man’s work is burned up, he shall suffer loss; but he himself shall be saved, YOU CAN NOT LOSE YOUR SALVATION.

REV 22:18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book; if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book;

DEU 4:2 You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

DEU 12:32 Whatever I command you, you shall be careful to do; you shall not add to nor take away from it.

PRO 30:6 Do not add to His words or He will reprove you, and you will be proved a liar.

The Roman soldiers would battle so closely next to each other that they had to be uniform in what side the shield or sword was being used, so as not to interfere with the soldier next to them.

They fought as a single warrior but connected to a large unit. They focused on one enemy in front of them, never broke rank or tried to afford themselves more room.

HEB 4:12 For the word of God is alive and active and sharper than any two edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

What we should first note is the principle that the shield (faith) is held up before the sword (doctrine) is used.

1JO 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. Not just defensive positioning but set up for the offensive!

Very similar to new Bel who need time to develop faith rest and understand and apply doctrinal principles.

The best equipment was given to the higher ranking soldiers. LUK 12:48 From everyone who has been given much, much will be required.

The Roman sword was an extension of the wrist or arm of a qualified soldier, so too should the word of God be for Bel’s!

In the natural or spiritual you cannot remain in a constant state of defense during conflict, there must be some offense to assure victory.

GEN 27:40 Esau is told by his father Isaac that he will live by the sword and serve his brother Jacob.

MAT 26:52 Put your sword away for those who take up the sword shall perish by it.

King Saul’s cosmic viewpoint & violent ways led to his own self destruction.
1 Chr 10:4 Saul falls upon his sword.

EPH 6:17 sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. This is the only offensive weapon we need.
