Doctrine of Blackout of the Soul

February 4, 2016


A. Definition and Description.
1. Blackout of the soul is the inevitable result of emotional revolt of the soul and locked in negative volition to Bible doctrine.
a. The blackout of the soul begins with the creation of a vacuum in the stream of consciousness of the right lobe of the soul. This vacuum creates a system of suction that attracts into the seven compartments of the soul the emotional complex of sins and the three arrogance skills.
b. The blackout of the soul immobilizes previously metabolized Bible doctrine.
c. Blackout of the soul is the status of the believer with negative volition to doctrine, which results in his involvement with the cosmic system.
2. Satan’s cosmic system includes two power systems by which the believer comes under the control of Satan: cosmic one and cosmic two, Jn 12:31, 16:11; 2 Cor 4:4; Eph 2:2.
3. Blackout of the soul finds the believer entering gate two of cosmic one (negative volition as arrogance) or gate one of cosmic two (negative volition as antagonism), or these can be entered at the same time. By so doing, he cuts himself off from truth and eventually forgets any truth he has learned in the past. Rejection of the content of doctrine is usually the secondary reason for negative volition; the primary reason is preoccupation with self or others.
4. In cosmic one, the believer rejects doctrine because he is preoccupied with self, while in cosmic two he rejects doctrine because of his preoccupation with and predilection for erroneous human thinking which conflicts with doctrine.
5. Satan’s kingdom is one of darkness, Eph 5:11, 6:12; Col 1:13.
6. Since the cosmic system is called a domain of darkness and those believers who reside and function in cosmic two are said to “walk in darkness,” this is the basis for the term “blackout of the soul,” 1 Jn 2:11, 1:6; Jn 12:35b, “Walk while you have the light that darkness may not overtake you. He who walks in darkness does not know where he is going.”
a. Every believer has equal opportunity to learn Bible doctrine, represented here by the light.
b. The blackout of the soul is residence and function inside cosmic one and cosmic two. It occurs in both believers and unbelievers, 1 Jn 2.
c. Negative volition to truth in three categories results in man entering a negative volition gate of either cosmic one or cosmic two, and eventually getting into blackout of the soul.
d. When an unbeliever rejects Jesus Christ as Savior, he enters into the cosmic system, and under certain circumstances he will get into blackout of the soul. Prolonged blackout of the soul leads to scar tissue of the soul.
7. In the blackout of the soul, the stream of consciousness is described four ways.
a. “Darkened in their way of thinking,” Eph 4:18.
b. “Walking in darkness,” 1 Jn 2:11.
c. “The darkness has blinded his eyes,” 1 Jn 2:11.
d. “He who walks in darkness does not know where he is going,” Jn 12:35.
8. Blackout of the soul demands that if we are to recover the ministry of God the Holy Spirit, it is necessary for us to understand rebound as the problem solving device for blackout of the soul, 1 Jn 1:6-9, “But if we say that we have fellowship with God [self-justification] and keep walking in darkness [blackout of the soul], we lie [self-deception] and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin [self-deception and self-absorption], we are deceiving ourselves [self-deception], and the truth is not in us. If we acknowledge our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to purify us from all wrongdoing.”

B. The Mechanics of Blackout of the Soul, Eph 4:17; 1 Tim 4:1.
1. Eph 4:17, “Therefore, I communicate this and because of the Lord I insist that you no longer walk as Gentiles [unbelievers] walk in the vacuum of their mind.”
a. When you reject truth, a vacuum pump opens in your mind and sucks in what is false. The pressure on the outside is greater and the vacuum on the inside sucks up every false idea, every false doctrine, everything that is distracting to you.
b. Once you reject Bible doctrine, you lose your common sense, your instincts for survival, and whatever integrity you possessed as an unbeliever.
c. The Greek word MATAIOTES means nothingness, worthlessness, futility, emptiness, and therefore refers to vacuum.
d. The vacuum opens with the rejection of the laws of divine establishment, or with the rejection of doctrine for the believer. When you reject doctrine, the vacuum in your left lobe opens and sucks in any false doctrine.
2. 1 Tim 4:1, “But that same Holy Spirit explicitly reports that in latter periods of time [Church Age], some believers will become apostate from doctrine, paying attention to deceitful spirits and concentrating on doctrines from demons.”
3. The mechanics of blackout of the soul include grieving the Holy Spirit and/or quenching the Holy Spirit. The believer enters either gate two of cosmic one, gate one of cosmic two, or gate eight of cosmic two.

C. The Blackout of the Soul is Related to Reversionism.
1. Reversionism has eight stages with blackout of the soul being stage six.
2. The eight stages of reversionism are described as follows.
a. It all begins with reaction to something in life, which produces distractions.
(1) Distractions from Bible doctrine result from:
(a) Pressures in thinking, such as mental attitude sins, self-righteous arrogance, psychopathic arrogance, political arrogance, emotional arrogance, discouragement, pseudointellectual arrogance.
(b) Problems with people: mental attitude arrogance, sexual arrogance, pseudolove arrogance.
(2) Distractions of cosmic two include the following.
(a) In the area of thinking, one enters into anti-establishment arrogance and cosmic panaceas.
(b) In the area of people, one enters gates 2, 3, 5, 8.
b. A frantic search for happiness will follow either a trend toward lasciviousness or asceticism.
(1) In cosmic one, asceticism is manifest in morality arrogance and the arrogance of Christian service. Lasciviousness is blackout of the soul as manifest in the arrogance of lust, gate 23 of cosmic one.
(2) In cosmic two the ascetic trend is seen in gates 5 and 9, and the lascivious trend is seen in gates 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, and 9.
c. Operation boomerang follows. The frantic search for happiness follows the trends of the old sin nature, but only intensifies unhappiness resulting in frustration. The more you seek happiness for happiness’ sake, the more you are involved in the cosmic system. You only intensify your problem in operation boomerang. Your frustration is based on lack of capacity for life, love, or happiness inside the cosmic system. This only intensifies the frantic search for happiness. Gate 26 of cosmic one, the arrogance of suicide, is the ultimate in frustration. Degeneracy of cosmic two is also frustration.
d. In the emotional revolt of the soul, emotions take control of the mentality of the soul and blot out reason and the ability to face reality. The person cannot define his problem and so cannot resolve it. This results in cultural disaster, establishment disaster, and religious disaster. Emotion has no capacity for thought, no relationship with reality, and no discernment. Without the mentality of the soul, emotion is blind, unreasonable, immoral, arrogant, unrestrained, and contributes to misery.
e. Negative volition to doctrine naturally follows. You are apathetic or hostile to doctrine or its communicator by now. The result is often personality conflict with the pastor or with those who are positive.
(1) Apathy always becomes antagonism by entering into iconoclastic arrogance toward the communicator.
(2) Sometimes the problem is preoccupation with prosperity, where believers spin out into cosmic one or cosmic two and lose their priorities.
(3) Once you get to blackout of the soul you are an evangelist for unhappiness. You try to make others as unhappy as you are. You are only satisfied when you know you’ve made others unhappy. In fact, your life is devoted to making others unhappy.
(4) Your priorities are never completely destroyed until you get to blackout of the soul. At that point, you have no true sense of freedom, for you call yourself a free spirit, i.e., you recognize only your freedom to the exclusion of the freedom of everyone else.
f. Blackout of the soul is the stage of interlocking with the various gates of the cosmic system.
(1) It is the stage of demon influence in which satanic propaganda is sucked into the vacuum created by negative volition.
(2) By comparing Eph 4:17 with 1 Tim 4:1, we find the believer concentrating on doctrine of demons will reject any form of truth instinctively and emotionally react to it. Demon influence is anti-truth in thought.
g. Scar tissue of the soul is the interlock between the various gates of the cosmic system. Blackout of the soul affects primarily the left lobe, whereas scar tissue of the soul affects the right lobe.
h. In reverse process reversionism, priorities, mandates, and true objects of love are rejected inside the cosmic system. The function of reverse process reversionism is the inevitable result of blackout of the soul and scar tissue of the soul.
(1) Cosmic one gate 24, pseudointellectual arrogance, crosses over to cosmic two gate 7, anthropocentric academic speculation, to form one system of blackout of the soul.
(2) Another type of reverse process reversionism is seen in gate 25 of cosmic one, pseudolove arrogance, interlocking with gate 10 cosmic one and crossing over to gate 2 cosmic two, which is degeneracy.

D. Blackout of the Soul is Related to Scar Tissue of the Soul.
1. Blackout of the soul affects the left lobe of the soul; scar tissue of the soul affects the right lobe. They combine to form reverse process reversionism.
2. This combination means you have destroyed your scale of values and have created a scale of values which intensifies your unhappiness, so that you go from being an evangelist of unhappiness to being an apostle of unhappiness.
3. Blackout of the soul is the first stage in loving the cosmic system, 1 Jn 2:15.
4. The relationship between blackout of the soul and scar tissue of the soul is found in Eph 4:1718; in unbeliever reversionism it is found in Jn 12:3740. Reversionism and involvement in the cosmic system means unbelievers cannot respond to evangelism.

E. The Believer and the Blackout of the Soul.
1. The whole process begins with loss of momentum at gate 4 of the divine dynasphere. It begins with no longer having selfmotivation to take in doctrine.
2. A pressure test, such as disaster (which calls for the faith-rest drill), will wipe you out; or a people test will wipe you out.
3. 1 Jn 2:9, 11, “When anyone contends he is in the light and he hates his fellow believer, he is in darkness until now. But when anyone hates his fellow believer, he is in darkness and he walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.”
4. 2 Pet 1:9, “For he who lacks these virtues [being able to switch to virtuelove] is nearsighted and blind [blackout of the soul], and has forgotten that he has been cleansed from past sins.”

F. The Unbeliever Blackout of the Soul.
1. Jesus called the Pharisees involved in gate 5 of cosmic two “blind guides,” and those who followed them “blind men.” Mt 23:1619, 15:18; Lk 6:39 speak of “the blind leading the blind.”
2. Paul taught about the unbeliever’s blackout of the soul.
a. 2 Cor 4:34, “in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving.”
b. 2 Cor 3:1416, “But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their right lobe.”
c. Rom 11:78, “God has given them a spirit of stupor, ‘Eyes to see not, ears to hear not,’ down to this very day.”

G. We Have a Conflict of Dynaspheres.
1. This occurs only in the Church Age. It is taught in Mt 6:2224.
a. “The eye is the lamp of the body…” Being “full of light” refers to momentum.
b. “If the light is darkness” refers to Gnosticism.
c. “No one can serve two masters; either he will hate the one and love the other.” “Mammon” was a Greek god, the demon of cupidity and inordinate desire. Having wrong priorities is “serving Mammon.”
2. In Lk 6:3945, blackout of the soul is seen as being constantly critical of others. All believers in blackout of the soul are hypocrites.

H. The Solution to the Blackout of the Soul is Found in Eph 3:1619.
“To be strengthened with power” is residence and function inside the divine dynasphere.
