Doctrine of Cosmic System

January 15, 2011


1.    Definition.

A.    The cosmic system is Satan’s strategy as the ruler of this world to influence believers.  The cosmic system is the policy Satan invokes to rule the world.

B.    Satan’s cosmic system is composed of two separate dynaspheres.

1)    Cosmic one:  Cosmic one is Satan’s exploitation of believers through their own arrogance. This is his means of influencing the human race.  Satan is the author of arrogance, for arrogance was his original sin.

2)    Cosmic two:  Cosmic two is Satan’s propaganda and indoctrination that educates and promotes antagonism toward anything related to God, especially the grace of God.

C.    Cosmic one represents Satan’s attitude at the time of his prehistoric fall.  Cosmic two represents Satan’s attitude at the time of Adam’s fall in the Garden of Eden.

D.    Cosmic one emphasizes arrogance and abnormal preoccupation with self.  Cosmic two emphasizes antagonism and intolerance toward the plan, purpose, and will of God, and toward all Christians executing the will of God.

E.    Cosmic one is Satan’s philosophy in the prehistoric angelic conflict.  Cosmic two is Satan’s philosophy in human history as the ruler of this world.

F.    The target of cosmic one is a human being; the target of cosmic two is Bible doctrine.  In cosmic one, an individual destroys himself.  In cosmic two, the individual becomes antagonistic toward Bible doctrine.

G.    In order for Satan to rule, he must produce two factors.

1)    Self induced arrogance that divorces an individual from the reality of God’s plan.

2)    Antagonism toward Bible doctrine.  Only through the perception, metabolization, and application of doctrine do believers have any hope of becoming tactically victorious, complementing our Lord’s strategic victory in the angelic conflict.

H.    Cosmic one emphasizes self in contrast to God.  Cosmic two emphasizes the human viewpoint of psychological living in contrast to the divine viewpoint of spiritual living.
