Garden of Eden

The Garden of Eden was the original Divine Design for life on the Earth.  It was a Divine Dynasphere to protect man, animals, and the environment from the rule of Satan and his Cosmic System.  Life in the Garden was simple and wonderful.  Love and happiness abounded, and there were no distractions.  The first man and woman lived in a honeymoon.  They enjoyed great love for each other with sexual ecstasy.  God gave them a life in Grace, and they were content with it.

The man and woman in the Garden enjoyed fellowship with God and harmonious rapport with each other.  The man was content to be the leader, and the woman was content to be his helper to grace his life with love and beauty.  There was no rivalry, no worry, and no boredom.  There were daily circadian rhythms that enabled them to enjoy doing the same things periodically without being bored.

They rose in the morning to a new day, watched the flocks of ducks and doves fly over, and listened to the symphony of birds singing.  They enjoyed the fruit that God gave them to eat and eagerly anticipated the new things they would learn and experience.  They watched the lions and the deer, the horses and sheep, and the majesty of eagles soaring above. They saw the beautiful flowers that decorated the landscape.  They swam in the clear springs saw the schools of fish in the clear water of the river.

They recognized the glory of God and His hidden purpose in each species of animal.  God was in nature, and all of Creation glorified Him.  At night they enjoyed the panorama of the Heavens and love making in their bed of love.  They slept peacefully to rest and clear the mind for the new beginning of a new day.

Man was at home in the Garden just as his soul was at home in his body, and the angels were at home with God in Heaven.  All was peaceful, pristine, and perfect.  Creation was Divine and Heavenly.  All Adam and the woman had to do to maintain their life of happiness was to obey God and not eat the forbidden fruit.  That was no problem because in their Divine Dynasphere they had no desire to sin.

All was fine until Satan showed up.  Satan used lies, duplicity, and half-truths to make the woman think she was missing something.  She could be smarter if she would listen to him and eat the forbidden fruit.  When she ate the fruit, she sinned and went into the Cosmic System with Satan.  Then she convinced her husband, and he ate.  In sin Satan became their god, and they became his servants.

Adam and the woman were given the opportunity to be saved by accepting the Redemption Solution.  They became believers, but because they had been contaminated with sin, they were banished from the Garden.  They were given a new Divine Dynasphere.  So long as they obeyed God, He would provide for them in Grace, but when they sinned, they were Satan's slaves.

The new Divine Dynasphere supported Right Man and Right Woman and offered the potential of going back to the Garden, but that was next to impossible because of sin.  Man's Old Sin Nature made him easy prey for Satan.  Reversionists like Lamech even engaged in polygamy (Gen 4:19), which is a rejection of Right Man Right Woman.  Nevertheless, God still created a woman for a man and offered them the potential for going back to the Garden.  However, the only way to get back required solving the sin problem and conquering Satan.

The only way to have a good love life is to get to Spiritual Rapport. Some couples who succeeded included Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebekah, and Ruth and Boaz.  Jacob made it, but his Right Woman, Rachel, refused to obey and died the Sin Leading to Death.  David never had his Right Woman although he did get to Spiritual Rapport and was tested rigorously for the purpose of returning to the Garden.1  Solomon made a mess of it through polygamy, but he did leave Song of Solomon as a testimony of good intentions.

The Spiritual life of the Church Age offers the best opportunity for going back to the Garden.  The Filling of the Holy Spirit affords the power to keep the Old Sin Nature in check, and the Mystery Doctrine is available to advance to Spiritual Rapport.  However, Satan's attack on the believer is intensified in the Church Age.  Yet, the believer who persists with doctrine can defeat him and reach Spiritual Rapport (Rom 16:20; 1 Jn 2:13-14).

Going back to the Garden is not a personal choice.  It is a Divine requirement.  Those who fail will receive Divine punishment.  Right Man Right Woman is Divine Design.  It is interwoven into the Spiritual life of the advancing believer.  The pattern was established in the Garden.  After the Fall going back to the Garden must be accomplished Spiritually.  Only the Spiritual life in the Divine Dynasphere has the power to achieve Spiritual freedom and protect from the Cosmic System.

Spiritual Life

Because there was no sin in the Garden, there was no conflict with God.  Life was beautiful, Divine, and Heavenly.  Everything was in harmony with the Sovereign Design of the Creator.  The Potter produced a wonderful Garden filled with life and happiness.  The Spirit of God was unhindered by sin.  The Spirit of God provided life for the animals and plants.  Man enjoyed fellowship with God and basked in Divine blessing.

Man was created with a body, soul, and spirit.  The soul gave life to his body, and the human spirit provided fellowship with God.  The Spirit of human life from God gave life to man's body.  All of Creation is produced by the Spirit of God (Rom 4:17; Heb 11:3).  The Spirit of God produces everything the rocks, rivers, trees, and the souls of man and animals (Jn 1:3).  The Spirit of God gives life.  He not only gives life to the soul and body, but He also provides the environment and relationships of life.  Life is what God provides, not what man makes.  The Potter makes the pot (Isa 29:16; 64:8; Jer 18:1-6; Rom 9:21).

The Divine Dynasphere is the Creation of God.  It is first, spiritual.  The key to understanding it is spirituality.  The power of the Divine Dynasphere is spiritual.  The goal of life in the Divine Dynasphere is Spiritual Rapport with God.  God is Spirit.  Knowledge of Him is Spiritual (1 Cor 2:11), and those who worship Him must do so in Spirit and in Bible Doctrine (Truth) (Jn 4:24).

In the Divine Dynasphere everything is the Sovereign production of God.  Everything is ordered according to God's purpose.  The people, the events, the animals, the numbers and colors all convey the purpose of God.  Outside is the Cosmic System, which is full of lies, inconsistencies, and confusion.  The doctrinal believer in the Divine Dynasphere can see the Truth of God with Divine viewpoint and recognize the evil of Satan's lies.  Inside is Light.  Outside is dark.

Residence in the Divine Dynasphere requires the Filling of the Holy Spirit.  Sin takes a person out of the Divine Dynasphere and into the Cosmic System just as sin led to expulsion from the Garden.  However, Rebound returns the believer into the Divine Dynasphere, although Divine punishment may be waiting there.

The New Spiritual Life after Salvation is lived inside the Divine Dynasphere.  The old life must be left behind.  The sins of the old life were Judged on the cross.  Therefore, the believer must not return to them, since they are dead works (Gal 2:20; 5:24).  "The wages of sin is death" (Rom 6:23).  Living the New Life in the Filling of the Holy Spirit provides Spiritual Freedom protected by the Divine Dynasphere (Jn 8:32, 36; Rom 6:18; 8:2).  Spiritual Freedom is inside the Divine Dynasphere, and slavery to Satan is outside.

Food for the New Spiritual Life is Bible Doctrine.  Bible Doctrine must be learned under the ministry of the Right Pastor.  The soul is edified through the metabolization of Bible Doctrine.  A completed Edification Complex of the Soul (ECS) is needed to function as an adult believer in Spiritual Maturity.  Doctrine in the ECS enables the believer to obey God and stay in the Divine Dynasphere.  The thinking of the ECS is Spiritual.  It is different from the thinking of the soul under the influence of the Old Sin Nature.  The soul must be filled with the Holy Spirit for protection from the Old Sin Nature, and the thinking must come from the Bible Doctrine in the ECS.

Much of the teaching of Christianity has confused the soulish and the Spiritual.  Psychology deals with the problems of the soul.  But psychology doesn't know that sin is the source of the problem.  Psychology is useless for the Spiritual Life.  Another source of confusion is morality.  Morality is also associated with the soul.  Morality is not Spirituality.  Edification does not involve morality, which is for unbelievers.  Edification comes from Spirituality.

Sound doctrinal thinking of the ECS will be reflected in the Spiritual Body and will strengthen it.  Sin in the soul will weaken the pressure points of the Spiritual Body.  If the sin problem is not handled with the Redemption Solution, the weakness may be intensified and lead to infirmity or mental illness.  All sickness and infirmity is Divine punishment.

Satan's Attacks on the Believer

The whole world lies under the power of Satan.  However, the believer in Christ is rescued from Satan (Gal 1:4; 2 Thess 3:3; 1 John 2:13; 5:18).  The believer who is filled with the Holy Spirit resides inside the Divine Dynasphere.  Inside the Divine Dynasphere Satan cannot touch the believer unless God opens the door.  The man and woman in the Garden were protected until God allowed Satan in.  Satan has the right to cross examine witnesses in the Appeal Trial with God's permission.

In the Garden Satan spoke to the woman through the serpent and not directly.  He then empowered the woman to attack the man.  When the woman sinned, she became his slave, and he used her to convince the man to sin.  Similarly, Satan and his demons work through people rather than appear openly.  That is because the only testimony that counts in the Appeal Trial must come from people.  Satan can only score points if he gets a human to bear witness for him.

Because people are the witnesses in the Appeal Trial, Satan appeals to them for support just as he did to the woman in the Garden.  Then Satan uses his human followers to attack other people just as he used the woman against the man in the Garden.  Satan and his demons exhibit their power and strength through their human followers, who become their slaves and agents.  The human slaves are the sons of Belial (the worthless one) or "sons of disobedience" (Eph 2:2; 5:6; Col 3:6).

Since Satan must use people to achieve his ends, people become the key to recognizing the source of his attacks.  Since Satan and his demons are spirits, they are invisible.  However, since they work through people, their activities can be understood through the actions of people who are empowered by them.   People who are empowered by demons do the devil's bidding.

People that Satan empowers are the Antichrist (Evil King) and the Prostitute of Babylon.  The Evil Kings of history have been empowered by Satan and his demons.  The original Prostitute of Babylon was the High Priestess who cohabited with a demon.  Thoughout history she has been called by many names, including Jezebel, Lilith, and the Old Hag.  Her demon has been called Baal, Incubus, the "thorn in the flesh," and more recently the Entity.

The Cosmic System is Satan's alternative to the Divine Dynasphere.  He attacks the Divine Dynasphere on the left by the Antichrist (Evil King) and on the right by the Prostitute of Babylon.  On the left are the sins of Legalism, and on the right are the sins of Lawlessness (2 Cor 6:7).  Satan tempts people to engage in promiscuity and lawlessness on the one hand and rebellion and legalism on the other.  People in the world (Cosmic System) think like Satan.

Satan is the ruler of the world, and the only people who are free from his power are believers in the Divine Dynasphere.  And the believers in the Divine Dynasphere are only free from Satan so long as God permits.  Freedom from Satan requires advancing to Spiritual Rapport and defeating the Antichrist and Prostitute of Babylon.  Reversionists and carnal believers who reside in the Cosmic System are under Satan's power.  Satan uses these people to attack others, especially believers who are executing the Spiritual life.

Satan used Peter to attack Jesus Christ.  When Jesus taught His disciples that He must suffer many things from the Jewish elders and chief priests and be killed, Peter would have none of it (Matt 16:21).

Matthew 16:22 Peter the Cosmic Evangelist
And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, "God have mercy, Lord! This must never happen!"
Peter had the audacity to contradict the strategic purpose of the Lord Jesus Christ in going to the cross.  Peter was motivated by human good and was expressing Satanic viewpoint.
Matthew 16:23 Peter Called Satan
But having turned around (with His back to Peter), He said to Peter, "Go away! Get behind Me, Satan!  You are a stumbling-block to Me, because you are not thinking the things of God (Divine viewpoint), but the things of men (human viewpoint)."
When Jesus heard Peter's rebuke, He immediately turned His back on Peter and said, "Go away! Get behind Me, Satan!"  In turning His back on Peter, He was using body language to reject Peter, separate from him, and leave him behind.

Jesus called Peter, Satan, because Satan was operating through Peter.  This was more than a figure of speech.  This means:

  1. Satan put the thoughts in Peter's mind.
  2. Peter under human viewpoint is a Cosmic Evangelist.
  3. Peter is in the Cosmic System under Satan's power.
  4. Under the potter and clay principle, created beings are not original thinkers.  They belong to God (Rom 9:20-24; Isa 45:9; 64:8) and may be influenced by Satan (Gen 3:4-6, 17; 1 Chron 21:1; Job 2:10; Matt 13:19; 16:23; Jn 6:70; 8:44; 2 Cor 4:4; 11:15; 12:7; Eph 2:2; 4:27; 1 Tim 4:1; 1 Jn 3:12; 5:19).
Peter was the leader of the disciples.  Yet, God allowed Satan to operate through him.  Peter was not possessed, but he was echoing the thinking of Satan and opposing the strategic purpose of Jesus Christ.  Jesus called Peter Satan to draw attention to the power that Satan had over Peter.  Satan and his demons can exhibit the same power over others.

The serpent spoke to the woman in the Garden and convinced her to eat the forbidden fruit (Gen 3:4-6).  After she ate the fruit, she died spiritually, became Satan's slave, and convinced her husband to eat also.  Satan used the woman to attack the man (Gen 3:17).  The woman under Satanic influence was the Prostitute of Babylon.  When Adam listened to his wife, he was listening to Satan also.

Satan attacked Israel through David, the King.  Satan incited David to number Israel (meaning to take a military census), which was contrary to the will of God (1 Chron 21:1; 2 Sam 24:1).  The idea in David's head came from Satan after God hardened his heart, and Satan was able to prevail with David in spite of the opposition of Joab, his chief-of-staff (1 Chron 21:3, 4; 2 Sam 24:4).  God opened the door to Satan by hardening David's heart (2 Sam 24:1).  After David numbered Israel, God punished Israel, and 70,000 died from pestilence (2 Sam 24:15).

When Job was suffering at the hand of Satan, Job's wife advised him to "Curse God and die!" (Job 2:9).  She was under the influence of Satan, but Job was resisting Satan's torture.

Job 2:10
But he (Job) said to her, "You are speaking as one of the foolish women speaks.  Shall we accept the Good from God but not also accept the adversity?" In all this Job did not sin with his lips.
Job said his wife was speaking like one of the "foolish women," which is the Hebrew lb*n* (nabal), meaning foolish; arrogant negative volition toward the God of salvation; infidel.   Job's wife was talking like a fool, one who is without doctrine and the knowledge of God (Psa 14:1; 53:1).  So, Satan turned Job's wife against him and took her away.

Job asked the rhetorical question, "Shall we accept the Good from God but not also accept the adversity?"  Good is Divine Good.  It is prosperity from God, while adversity is cursing at the hand of Satan.  Job's wife was only going to stick with him in prosperity not adversity.

Satan can influence people by taking Bible Doctrine or the Gospel out of the mind (Matt 13:19).

Judas Iscariot was a believer who neglected Bible Doctrine and was taken over by Satan (Jn 6:70-71).

John 6:70 Election of the Disciples
Jesus answered them, "Have not I Myself chosen you twelve? Yes.  Yet, one from among you is the devil.
"Devil" is anarthrous.  It does not have a definite article.  Therefore, it is translated in the English as "the devil."  This is a metaphor meaning that Judas is under the power of the devil, acting as an agent for Satan (Luk 22:3; Jn 13:2, 27).

Jesus said that the religious Jews were from their father the devil (Jn 8:44).  They were under the power of Satan and performed the deeds of Satan, such as lying and murder.

Satan blinds the minds of unbelievers preventing them from believing the Gospel (2 Cor 4:4).

Satan disguises himself as an angel of Light (an Elect Angel) (2 Cor 11:14), and false teachers under the power of Satan disguise themselves as servants of Righteousness (2 Cor 11:15).

Evil Spirits from the Lord

Even though Satan is the ruler of the world, he does not have free reign over mankind.  The Lord governs His Creation through His Sovereign power.  Every bird that flies, fish that swims, or person who walks conforms to Divine Design of the Creator (Job 12:7-10).  Satan and his demons can only exercise power over God's Creation with His permission.  God must open the door for Satan and his demons to attack mankind.

When King Saul neglected Rebound, he lost the Enduement of the Holy Spirit which empowered him to rule as King over Israel.  Without the protection of the Holy Spirit, he was vulnerable to demon attack.  An evil spirit from the Lord was sent to terrorize him (1 Sam 16:14).  The evil spirit was a demon that the Lord allowed to attack Saul.  When the Lord withdrew His protective power over Saul, the door was open for the demon to attack.  Demons can only attack man with God's permission.

The evil spirit in Saul's life made him an Evil King.  Music therapy was ordered to treat Saul when he was under demon attack (1 Sam 16:16).  David was called in to play the lyre for him when he came under attack.  The combination of the soothing music and doctrine of the Psalms which David sang may have helped sometime, but not always.  When David was playing the music, Saul, under the power of the demon, tried to kill David (1 Sam 18:10-11; 19:9-10).

God sent an evil spirit between the army of Abimelech, ruler of Israel in the time of the Judges, and the citizens of Shechem (Judg 9:23-24).  The citizens of Shechem terrorized the army of Abimelech.  Satan inspires terrorism with God's permission.

The Lord sent a deceiving spirit (angel) to the false prophets of Israel to convince King Ahab to go into battle where he would die.  The story is related by the true prophet Micaiah.  The prophets should have been listening to the Holy Spirit, but instead they were listening to angels (doctrines of demons).

Paul's Thorn in the Flesh

As Paul was advancing in the Spiritual life before he reached Spiritual Maturity, he was attacked by a demon, which he called a "thorn in the flesh."  Satan sent the demon into Paul's life, but only after the Lord opened the door.  When Paul prayed for the demon to be taken away, his prayers were ineffective.  The Lord answered Paul, "My Grace is sufficient for you" (2 Cor 12:9).

Paul understood that he must endure the demon attacks under the power of Christ and await the removal of the demon under the Grace of God.  Paul no longer had the power to cast out demons or pray for healing.  He had been called upon to demonstrate the power of the Divine Dynasphere against Satanic counterattack.  Paul must resist the demon under the Filling of the Holy Spirit inside the Divine Dynasphere.  Paul would not be free from the demon until God gave him a Grace promotion (Jas 4:6-7).2

Satan World Ruler

Satan rules the world (1 Jn 5:19).  He influences the thinking of unbelievers and reversionists (ref. Eph 2:1-2, 1 Tim 4:1).  He lures them, pressures them, and seduces them to do his will.  He can grant wishes and give power and worldly glory.  He takes men captive and cleverly manipulates their behavior.  He manipulates the decisions of national leaders.  He murders, lies, cheats, and deceives.  Yet he remains invisible to all but a few who have the Spiritual discernment to recognize his handiwork.

Satan is a super creature with great power.  He is like a god.  He can influence all the people in a large city at once.  His power is spiritual and not localized like a person.  He is like a fog that rolls in.  Although he operates faster than light, people can't respond that fast.  His influence over them can be observed as they reflect his presence.

Satan is actively engaged in attacking the Plan of God, including human history and the Divine Institutions.  People are casualties of Satan, the destroyer who attacks God's Creation.  The only hope for mankind is the Redemption Solution, including Salvation and the Spiritual life.  Residence inside the Divine Dynasphere is the only protection against Satan. Sin causes spiritual death and results in slavery to Satan.  Therefore, the believer must not live in sin and give Satan an opportunity to control him (ref. Eph 4:27).

Divine Good vs. Evil

Divine Good is produced in the Divine Dynasphere through Grace.  In contrast, evil is produced in the Cosmic System.  Production in the Divine Dynasphere is the production of Light and Life, while the production of the Cosmic System is darkness and death.  Good works are like gold, silver, and precious stones (1 Cor 3:12).  Dead works are like wood, hay, and straw, which will be burned up at the Evaluation Throne of Christ after the Resurrection (1 Cor 3:13-15).

The Divine Dynasphere is the "armor of the Light" to protect us from the deeds of darkness (Rom 13:12).  The production of Light in the Divine Dynasphere includes Divine Good, Righteousness, and Doctrine (ref. Eph 5:9).  The believer should stop participating in the deeds of darkness of the Cosmic System (Eph 5:11).  Execution of the New Spiritual Life in Christ will expose the deeds of darkness in the world.

The fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden was forbidden.  All was Good in the Divine Dynasphere of the Garden before man sinned.  Before man sinned there was only Divine Good and no evil.  However, when man sinned, he began to produce evil works under the power of Satan.  When man sinned, he was given a conscience to discern  good and evil.

Satan is actively engaged in proving that evil is better than Divine Good.  Because of the conflict between Good and evil, he motivated Cain to murder his brother Abel (1 Jn 3:12).  Evil deeds will be the basis for condemning unbelievers to the Lake of Fire (Rev 20:12-14), and Good deeds of believers will be rewarded (1 Cor 3:14).  Divine Good is set aside in God's Plan for the believer to receive in Time (Eph 2:10).  Divine Good is received by the believer in Grace.  It is the production of the Light of God inside the Divine Dynasphere.

Curses

Although the believer in the Divine Dynasphere is protected by the power of God, life there is not always blessing.  As previously noted, God may administer Divine punishment to the believer in the Divine Dynasphere.  Or God may allow Satan and his demons access to the believer as He did to Job.  God may even curse the believer or allow him to be cursed.

Curses are the opposite of blessing and may come from God, Satan, or man.  Curses come from the spiritual realm.  Since man has a spiritual body, curses interfere with his spiritual body and his spiritual relationships with other creatures.  Satan cursed Job.  He not only cursed Job's health, but he killed his children, destroyed his wealth, broke up his marriage, and turned Job's friends against him.

Edenic Covenant

The Edenic Covenant in the Garden included a curse for breaking the covenant.  Man must not eat from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  Eating from the fruit of the tree would invoke the curse, "dying (spiritually) you will die (physically)" (Gen 2:17).  Eating the forbidden fruit was a sin that would bring spiritual and physical death and condemnation to the Lake of Fire with Satan and his angels (Matt 25:41).  After man sinned, the curse was passed on to all members of the human race (Rom 5:12).

Adamic Covenant

The Adamic Covenant that followed man's sin in the Garden imposed curses on man, woman, the animal kingdom, and the environment (Gen 3:14-17; Rom 5:14-18; 1 Cor 15:22).  Man would have to work for a living.  Plants would be cursed, and animals would become wild.  The woman would have to suffer in childbirth, and she would be under the authority of her husband.

Curse of Ham

After the Flood Noah planted a vineyard and made wine.  He got drunk and uncovered himself in his tent (Gen 9:20-21).  "Uncovered" is the Hebrew hl*G* (galah), which means to uncover oneself (one's nakedness) (2 Sam 6:20).  The word indicates exposed genitals and implies sexual arousal.  Drunkenness causes loss of inhibitions, which makes some drunks take off their clothes.

Genesis 9:22
Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.
Noah's youngest son, Ham, who was married, "saw the nakedness of his father."  "Nakedness" is the Hebrew hw*r=u# (`erevah), meaning pudenda; nakedness, implying shameful exposure; incest (Lev 18:6-18); sex (Lev 18:19; Ruth 3:4-7); and in Deut 24:1 indecency.  Seeing one's nakedness is a euphemism for various types of sex.  In this case it refers to incest.  Ham took advantage of Noah and had homosexual sex with him.

When Noah awoke from his stupor, he knew what Ham had done to him and was disgusted (Gen 9:24).  He consequently pronounced a curse on Ham, which means hot.  However, the curse was pronounced upon the posterity of Ham.  It was addressed against Canaan, the youngest son of Ham.

Genesis 9:25
So he (Noah) said,
"Cursed be Canaan;
A servant of servants
He shall be to his brothers."
Canaan means the submissive one; from the verb Cana`, meaning to stoop, submit; to humble, Hiph'il - to bend or subjugate.  Thus the name Canaan was used to emphasize a servant or slave.  The descendants of Ham would be servants, or slaves. "A servant of servants" is the lowest of servants, or a slave.  Even though the curse is pronounced upon Canaan, the youngest son of Ham, it applies to the other sons as well.  Ham was the father of:
  1. Cush Ethiopia (Black race)
  2. Mizraim Egypt
  3. Put Libya
  4. Canaan Phoenicia, Syria, Canaan (Palestine)
The curse was further explained to mean that Canaan would be the servant of Shem and Japheth (Gen 9:26-27).  The Hebrews were one of the races that came from Shem, and the Caucasians came from Japheth.

The descendants of Ham settled most of Africa.  Those who live in Africa and Canaan have been conquered and subjected to servitude throughout history.  Governments like the United States of America and Great Britain who have tried to eliminate the curse, have met with miserable failure.  A terrible War Between the States was fought in the USA to free the slaves, but after receiving their freedom, most remained servants.  A hundred years later Civil Rights Laws were passed to remove the social stigma, but after fifty years the legislation failed to alleviate the curse.

The Curse of Ham (or Canaan) can be removed by choosing the Redemption Solution.  Those who believe in Christ and reside in the Divine Dynasphere are Kings and Priests.  In the Spiritual realm, they are members of the Royal Family of God.  They have freedom in Christ and are not under the Curse of Ham (1 Cor 7:22; Philem 1:15-16).

Curse on Anti-Semitism

Based on the Abrahamic Covenant, those who curse Israel will be cursed (Gen 12:3).  In history no nation that attacked Israel has survived.  Satan is behind anti-Semitism.  His strategic objective is to destroy Israel.  Those who are anti-Semitic are not in the Divine Dynasphere.  They are in the Cosmic System under Satan.

Four Generation Curse

The Four Generation Curse states that after four generations of negative volition, God will destroy the nation (Ex 20:5; Num 14:18).  When a nation is going down, all of its citizens have been born into one of the four generations.  When enough believers advance to Spiritual Maturity or Spiritual Rapport, the nation will be delivered.  So every believer must deploy the armor of God from inside the Divine Dynasphere to deliver the nation in Spiritual Warfare.  A believer in the fourth generation will have more difficult testing than those in the first three generations.

Satan opposes nationalism and attacks the believer to neutralize him and take him captive in the Cosmic System.  Thus, residence in the Divine Dynasphere is not free from conflict.  However, Satan can be defeated with the weapons of Spiritual Warfare (2 Cor 10:4).

Church Age Cursing

In the Church Age Jews are cursed (2 Cor 3:14; 4:4; Rom 11:7, 25); Gentiles are blessed (Rom 9:23-26; 11:11ff); descendants of Ham are cursed; and Christians are persecuted (Jn 15:20; Gal 4:29; 2 Tim 3:12).  Satan exploits these curses.

Curses are removed inside the Church (Rom 10:12; 1 Cor 12:13; Gal 3:28; Col 3:11); not outside (1 Cor 6:9f; Gal 5:19ff; Rev 21:7-8; 22:15).

Galatians 3:27
For as many as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.
"Baptized" means to be identified with.  "Baptized into Christ" is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is received at Salvation when the believer is entered into union with Christ.  "Clothed" with Christ means putting on the Spiritual clothing of the Royal Priest in union with Christ.  "Clothed" means to take on the characteristics of Christ.
Galatians 3:28
There is neither Jew nor Greek (Gentile), there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
The Baptism of the Holy Spirit makes every believer equal spiritually.  Every believer has equal privilege and equal opportunity with his very own Spiritual life.

In the Church there is "neither Jew nor Greek."  This means no racial distinction.  Greek refers to Gentiles.

"There is neither slave nor free."  There are no social distinctions to distract from execution of Spiritual Life.  There are no cultural handicaps.

"There is neither male nor female."  There are no gender distinctions in the Church.  This is the only such priesthood to exist in human history.  Both women and men are priests, who can represent themselves and others before God.  This does not mean, however, that everyone has the same Spiritual gift.  There is no equality in Spiritual gifts only in the Spiritual life.  For example, the Spiritual gift of pastor-teacher is given to men only.  Believers have different Spiritual gifts.

"You are all one in Christ Jesus."  This means equality in Christ from the Baptism of the Holy Spirit.

Colossians 3:11
in which there is no distinction between Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all.
In the Church due to the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, there is no distinction between:
  1. "Greek and Jew" no racial distinction.
  2. "Circumcised and uncircumcised" no religious distinction.  Jews were circumcised and Gentiles were not.
  3. "Barbarian, Scythian" no cultural distinction.  The Scythians, who lived North and East of the Black Sea, were known for their savagery.
  4. "Slave, freeman" no social distinction.
"But Christ is all in the sphere of all things."  The believer's love relationship with Christ is sufficient for every exigency of life.  Believers are members of the Body of Christ, who fills all in all (Eph 1:23).

The  Divine Dynasphere provides power to overcome suffering (Rom 5:3; 1 Cor 4:12; Eph 1:19; Col 1:11; Phil 4:6-7, 13; 2 Tim 2:12).  It enables the Church Age Believer to execute the New Spiritual Life in Christ and empowers him to handle the trials and tribulations of life.  The Divine Dynasphere is not free from conflict, but it provides the power of God for the believer to be victorious against the forces of evil.

Biorhythms are cycles of days that begin at birth and continue through life.  Everyone is given a number of days to achieve his purpose and destiny (Eccl 3:1-2; Job 14:5; Lk 12:25).  As we walk along life's way, each day our lives relate to our own destiny and our relationship with the rest of the world.  God holds us accountable, and allows Satan opportunity to cross examine us.  God also provides purification for our sins to free us from bondage to sin and Satan.  And in the end each person will die under Dying Grace or the Sin Leading to Death, corresponding to dying in the wilderness.

Biorhythms are cycles of days that define our relationship with God and Satan.  Biorhythms are tests each day that demonstrate our integrity relative to God and Satan.  God is Holy, and Satan is evil.  The biorhythms are Judgments that expose our faithfulness to God or Satan.

The most important biorhythm cycles are:

23-Day - Historical Blessing
28-Day - Cosmic System Stronghold
33-Day - Purifying Judgment of the Holy Spirit
38-Day - Dying in the Wilderness
Almost everything written about biorhythms is pure garbage.  However, it is obvious that there must be some truth behind them because they come true.  Since the age of computers has made it possible to easily compute them, they are readily available.  They need to be understood to understand our life inside the Divine Dynasphere and our relationships with others.  We need to know what God is doing to us and when we are vulnerable to Satan's cross examination.  Biorhythms are like a top level schedule of the kinds of things that will happen to us.  They give us early warning of what to expect.  However, they are useless without Divine viewpoint from Bible Doctrine.

Biorhythms are useful when plotted as sine waves.  Critical times are when the sine wave crosses the axis.  The critical period is within a day or two of when the axis is crossed.  Each sine wave also has a high point (peak) and a low point (valley).  The high and low points are times of maximum pressure to drive the person up or down during the cycle.  Critical points, highs, and lows are the significant features of each cycle.

23-Day Cycle - Historical Blessing

The 23-day cycle defines historical blessing, including relationship to national blessing, capacity for life, physical strength and energy.  It defines the individual's contribution to the cycles of National Blessing (Lev 26, Deut 28:1). It indicates capacity for life (Phil 4:13; Col 1:11).  Critical points indicate pressures and problems that may cause loss of capacity for life, accidents, falls, and infirmity.  High points may cause a pull into manic mood, pride, arrogance, anxiety, and sneezing.  Low points may cause a person to be weak, depressed, enervated, drained, and cough.

28-Day Cycle - Cosmic System Stronghold

The 28-day cycle defines the relationship with the Cosmic System stronghold, which is Satan's alternative to the Divine Dynasphere (Eph 2:2; 2 Tim 2:26).  It defines the influence of the Cosmic System and worldliness in a person's life.  The critical points indicate vulnerability to being tripped up by the snare of the devil and falling into the Cosmic System from temptation and legalism.  High points indicate vulnerability to Satanic influence, seduction, and the vacuum of the mind (mataiotes).  Low points may indicate being devoured, destroyed, held captive, or becoming prey.

33-Day Cycle - Purifying Judgment of the Holy Spirit

The 33-day cycle is the purifying Judgment of the Holy Spirit to free the believer from the bondage of sin and living in a state of sin (Lev 12:4; Heb 1:3; 2 Pet 1:9).  This is the Redemption Solution and God's help for grieving and quenching he Holy Spirit.  It is God's support to help a person maintain strategic alignment on his road of destiny.  Thus, it is associated with travel, movement, and strategic and tactical advance.  The critical points may include emergency Judgments or Divine Punishment, such as Providential Preventative Suffering.  High points may be like spinning out, flying away, or slipping.  Low points may include being bogged down, stuck in mud, or writer's block.

38-Day Cycle - Dying in the Wilderness

The 38-day cycle is dying in the wilderness.  It includes death and destruction corresponding to failure to advance to Spiritual Maturity, which is symbolized by the Promised Land.  In the Exodus generation those who rejected Bible Doctrine died in the wilderness.  Good decisions lead to Dying Grace, but bad decisions lead to dying in the wilderness (Deut 2:14; Jn 8:24; 1 Cor 3:15; 10:5; Heb 3:17; 12:12).  Critical points indicate death, destruction, failure, and breakdown.  This may include system failure.  High points include falling apart, loss of control, or being  ungrounded.  Low points include the valley of the shadow and going down to Sheol (the grave).

Summary

23 Day Critical:  Capacity for Life loss, problems, accidents, falls, infirmity
     - High:  Manic, pride, anxiety, sneeze
     - Low:  Weak, depressed, enervated, cough
28 Day Critical:  Snare of Satan, tripped, falling into temptation or legalism
     - High:  Satanic influence, seduction, mataiotes vacuum
     - Low:  Devoured, destroyed, captive, prey
33 Day Critical:  Purifying Judgment of Holy Spirit, problems with travel, destiny
     - High:  Spinning out, flying away, slipping
     - Low:  Bogged down, stuck in mud, writer's block
38 Day - Critical:  Death, destruction, failure, breakdown
     - High:  Falling apart, loss of control, ungrounded
     - Low:  Valley of the shadow, going down to Sheol (the grave)

Since biorhythms are assumed to be sinusoidal, they cross the axis twice to produce two critical periods per cycle.  For example, there are critical periods of the 23-day biorhythm every 12 days.  The following table is an attempt to glean additional insight by considering these biorhythm half cycles.  The half cycles are not to be taken as separate cycles but as contributions to the whole cycle.  The table also includes the effect on the Spiritual Body of the testing in each biorhythm cycle.

Relationships

Relationships between people are indicated by the relationships of their biorhythms.  The study of biorhythm relationships is only useful to people who have legitimate, Divinely ordained relationships in the first place.  For example, biorhythm relationships of Right Man, Right Woman, and paramours could reveal some meaningful results.

Since biorhythms are cyclic, they will continue to have the same phase differences between two people.  Phase is the number of degrees that biorhythms differ.  For example, if two 23-day cycles are perfectly aligned, they will cross the axis on the same day in the same direction.  This symbolizes harmony, or rapport, in Capacity for Life and the things indicated by the 23-day cycle.  If the cycles of the two people lead or lag each other, there is a phase difference.  The one who leads may be a leader in the 23-day issue in the relationship, and the one that lags may be a follower (Isa 58:8; 1 Tim 5:24).

The size of the phase difference may indicate how much one is contributing to the relationship versus the other.  Positive contributions of two individuals are measured by phase differences of less than 180 degrees, which amounts to  the number of days in a half cycle.

  1. 12 days for the 23-day cycle
  2. 14 days for the 28-day cycle
  3. 16 days for the 33-day cycle
  4. 19 days for the 38-day cycle.
Negative contributions are measured by phase differences of greater than or equal to 180 degrees.  Phase differences of 180 degrees are in opposition.  Those in opposition are antagonistic or pulling apart, corresponding to planets or signs in opposition in astrology.  Oppositions are stumbling blocks in relationships.  When one loses tolerance or refuses to forgive, it is detrimental to the relationship.

90 Degree Phase Difference

90 Degree DifferenceIn the illustration the 28-day biorhythm cycles of two people (A and B) differ by 90 degrees.  When A is critical on day 7, B will be at the peak of the 28-day cycle.  Thus, B will be a temptation, and A will be a snare.  Later on day 21 when A is critical again, B will be in the valley.  Thus, B will be a captive, and A will be a snare.  So, A would tend to be taken captive by B, and B would tend to be snared by A.

90 and 180 Degree Phase Differences

90, 180 Degree DifferenceIn the illustration the 28-day biorhythm cycles of three people (A, B, C) are shown.  A and C differ by 180 degrees, while B differs from the other two by 90 degrees.  When B is critical, A and C are in opposition.  Thus, B can influence A and C.  For example, B could be the handle of a fork, and A and C the tongs.  Or A and C could influence B, where B would be like the point of a plow.

Double and Triple Critical Biorhythms

When multiple cycles cross the same critical point on the axis or peaks or valleys, the effects are additive.  For example, if 23 and 28-day cycles cross the axis together, the effects of both occur together.  That's not surprising.  However, the effect in relationships is surprising because multiple critical influences are very powerful.  Another person would not have a multiple critical pair to counter it.  Thus, multiple critical biorhythms are impossible to defend against.  They are like a Bow Configuration in Astrology.  Multiple critical biorhythms may also open the door for Satan to provide strong delusion to further exacerbate the problem.

Key to Testing in Life

God creates individuals according to His purpose to glorify Himself.  He is the Potter, and we are the clay.  One of our purposes is to be witnesses in Satan's Appeal Trial.  Our testimony is secured through testing even though we are in the Divine Dynasphere.  As evidenced by our biorhythms, God tests us each day to demonstrate our faithfulness to Him or Satan.  Passing the tests results in more Grace and a closer relationship with God, while failing the tests results in loss of Grace and affinity to Satan and his Cosmic System.  Passing the tests leads to promotion, and failing the tests results in demotion.  The believer who continues to be faithful to God can advance to Spiritual Maturity and Spiritual Rapport.

Believers in Spiritual Rapport have the power to defeat Satan through residence in the Divine Dynasphere under the Grace of God.  These winner believers will receive praise, glory, honor, and peace when they are evaluated at the Rapture (Rom 2:7, 10).  They will receive rewards and decorations (1 Cor 3:14; Rev 22:12).  The highest decorations for winners will be crowns (1 Cor 9:25), where crowns correspond to wreaths.

God tests the kidneys and the heart.

Jeremiah 17:10
I the LORD, analyze the heart,
I validate the kidneys.
Even to give to mankind according to his ways,
According to the fruit of his deeds.
The Lord analyzes the heart (right lobe of the soul) and the kidneys with the adrenal glands (ref. Jer 17:10 detail exegesis).  He validates the kidneys, which means to test stability under pressure to determine if a person will break down in fear and Emotional Revolt of the Soul.  Falling into fear and Emotional Revolt of the Soul amounts to entering the Cosmic System.  This testing corresponds to the 28-day biorhythm cycle.

BiorhythmsThe heart and kidneys are tested in order to "give to mankind according to his ways."  "Ways" are the paths of life, including the strategic and tactical advance.  "Ways" correspond to the primary lines of the palm, including the Life Line, Heart Line, Head Line, and Destiny Line (Jer 32:19).

The illustration correlates the Biorhythms to lines in the palm and the astrology chart.  See Right Man Right Woman for an explanation.3  The relationship of the biorhythms and hand lines is shown in the following table of the Key to Testing in Life.  The table correlates the Lord's testing along the X, Y, and Z axes to the hand lines, biorhythms, and crowns for the winner believer.  The tests are:

X - Faith
Y - Light and Love
Z - Life, Capacity for Life, Destiny, Strategic Advance (Spiritual Maturity, Spiritual Rapport)
Passing the tests will qualify the winner believer for the Crowns of Righteousness, Glory, and Life.  If he receives one crown, he will likely receive all three.

Satan's Attacks in History

Satan is out to destroy everything that God has created.  When everything is destroyed, Satan will declare himself the winner and demand to be worshipped as god.

Satan's attacks began in the Garden where he destroyed man with sin that took him to death first spiritually, and then physically.  Satan destroyed the first Marriage.  He destroyed perfect environment and infested the animal kingdom with death and destruction.  In-fighting in the animal kingdom became like the Angelic Conflict between the Elect and Fallen Angels after Satan's rebellion.

After the Fall Satan attacked God's Divine Institution of Marriage in the antediluvian civilization.  He sent his fallen angels to marry women and produced a race of super men and women.  With only eight believers left on the Earth, God was forced to destroy the world by the Flood in the time of Noah to keep the human race from self-destructing.

After the Flood Satan tried to set up a one-world religion at the Tower of Babel.  The religion was the invention of Satan, and Satan was the god who was worshipped.  In order to preserve man's freedom and right to choose his own destiny, God destroyed the Tower of Babel and instituted Nationalism.  The world was divided into nations with different languages.  Nations could preserve their freedom from other nations who sought to enslave them.

Satan immediately set out to conquer all the nations of the world.  He began with Nimrod as the Evil King (Gen 10:8-9).  Later he inspired the kings of Babylon, Media-Persia, Greece, and Rome to conquer the world, and he inspired other kings, like the Assyrians and Egyptians, to take over vast empires.

In addition to empowering Evil Kings, Satan deployed vast resources to destroy Israel after God gave Abraham the Abrahamic Covenant and promised him a great nation (Gen 12:3).  In spite of his best efforts, Satan was unable to prevent Israel from being freed from Egypt and conquering the Promised Land.  Nor was he able to prevent Jesus Christ from fulfilling the Adamic Covenant and paying for the sins of the world on the cross.

The Church is the latest Divine Institution on Satan's kill list.  Although he tried to wipe out the Church by killing all of the original apostles and disciples, he failed.  The Church is the biggest thorn in his side that ever existed.  In spite of his lies and deceitful scheming, there are still disciples who believe the Word.  In spite of Satan's superior power, he cannot overcome the Divine Dynasphere.  Satan is helpless against the believer whom God defends.

On a daily basis God pits the Christian in the Divine Dynasphere against Satan and his lies.  God honors his Word, and the believer who holds to Bible Doctrine has great impact over Satan's stratagems of deceit.  This conflict is nasty, not only because Satan is a super power and a super genius, but because God demands Spiritual Integrity (holiness, sanctification) from his children.  God disciplines his children severely to consecrate them to Himself and separate them from the world (Heb 12:6).

The mature believer in the Divine Dynasphere finds himself in a conflict between the demands of a Righteous and Holy God on the one hand and the attacks of the master of evil and deceit on the other.  It is like walking between Heaven and Hell.  Such is the life of those who dare to venture into the realm of Spiritual Rapport with God beyond Satan's power to enslave and control.

Attack on Divine Institutions

God's Creation is glorious and miraculous down to the most infinitesimal unit of energy.  Everything fits in God's perfect design.  Nothing is missing, and God rules as Sovereign over His Creation.  Satan himself is one of God's creations.  And every person has a life with purpose and definition, perfectly designed and administered by Almighty God.

God's perfection is designed into Creation.  In spite of Satan's evil attacks and man's bad decisions, God's Creation can withstand the shock.  God knew everything Satan would do and everything man would do before he created them.  Nothing takes God by surprise.  He is God over all.

Satan's Attack on CreationNevertheless, Satan is out to prove in his Appeal Trial that he is right.  Since being right for Satan means being contrary to God, Satan is out to destroy God's Divine Institutions.  God governs mankind through the Divine Institutions, which provide freedom and stability in the human race.4  Satan attacks these institutions with all his evil and deceitful scheming.  He deceives people and uses them to oppose God's Sovereign purpose and design.

God allows Satan to influence the thinking of people and spread his lies.  Satan may start a conspiracy or a rebellion against a Divine Institution.  Then God will Judge the people who followed Satan in rebellion against the Divine Institution.  For example, Satan led the people of Sodom and Gomorrah into all manner of sin, including homosexuality.  Homosexuality is an evil attack on the Divine Institution of Marriage.  By sinning and committing homosexual acts, the people were opposing God's Divine Institution.

God first delivered the people of Sodom and Gomorrah into the last stage of reversionism where they would desire homosexuality (Rom 1:24-27).  Then Satan exploited their homosexual desires.  Satan exercised power over the vast region of Sodom and Gomorrah.  He was like a fog in the night not like a door-to-door salesman.  After the people continued to practice their evil deeds under Satan's power, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah along with all the people.

The Divine Institutions establish order in the human race.  Satan is out to destroy them to produce chaos.  In the chaos and confusion Satan introduces his lies as the alternatives to God's commands.  Satan and God cannot both be right.  So Satan must prove God wrong in order to be right.  This creates conflict, and Satan will stop at nothing to win.  He operates under the principle that the end justifies the means.  He has no friends.  He will use and abuse to get his way.

Satan's Attack on CreationSatan with his Cosmic System has invaded the Divine Institutions of Marriage, Family, the Nation, and the Church.4  He opposes the basic institution of Marriage.  This is evident today with more unmarried people cohabiting than married ones.  Satan tempts people to fornicate and commit adultery, and he tempts the woman to usurp the authority of her husband.  He attacks Marriage through the Prostitute of Babylon and promotes women into positions of authority in which they have no authority, only power.

Satan attacks children.  His demons are active in the lives of children.  Intercessory prayer is a necessity for anyone who is around children.  Children's Old Sin Natures are aroused by demons.  Children don't have to be demon possessed to be harassed by demons.  When children reach the age of accountability, they need to be evangelized to free them from the condemnation of Satan.

Satan attacks women with his demons to make them into the Prostitute of Babylon, or Jezebel.  Jezebels do the devil's bidding just as the woman in the Garden.  Jezebels are sent out to destroy every Divine Institution.  The children of Jezebel are under a curse that brings an early death unless they choose the Redemption Solution (Rev 2:20-23).  Jezebels are used to destroy schools, businesses, news organizations, universities, the criminal justice system, the military, the police, the Church, health care, Congress, government, and the nation.

Satan exercises his power like a god.  He is a spirit, not a physical being.  He may exercise his influence over a city or over a person's entire Stage of Life.  He is invisible and moves faster than light.  The frequency of his thinking may be in the gigahertz range.  He is capable of exercising  power over millions of people at once.  The human mind, which operates at 32 hertz with thoughts less than 10 hertz are no match for Satan.  He can run circles around a million people at once, and no one will see his smoke.

Satan is a mystery to most people.  Even those who claim to associate with him or worship him are deceived.  However, his methods are discernible to the mature believer through Bible Doctrine (2 Cor 2:11).  After ten thousand years, no one knows what Satan looks like.  Even if he reveals himself, he can appear as anything.  He can put thoughts in the subconscious or give people desires that they mistake for their own.  Even when he plays his hand, he is invisible.

One of the ways Satan can be spotted is by cause and effect.  When something happens, it must have been caused.  Magic, for example, doesn't just happen.  It is caused by Satan and his demons.  Satan can make things appear or make sounds audible, but the things or sounds may only be in the mind of the beholder.  Satan can influence a person to pull a card from a deck or roll snake eyes.  He may play tricks with cashiers and give people the wrong change or cause people to pull the wrong bill from their purse.  He may cause lapses in consciousness so that a person does not see approaching danger.  He may cause a person to fall or have sudden pain or illness, or he may heal any infirmity.  He may spook animals, lead them, or hypnotize them.  He may arouse anger, incite rebellion, inspire murder, or motivate human good.

Satan's Attack on CreationSatan may influence the entire Stage of Life all at once.  Evidences of his presence include sinful activity such as lies and anger or  alterations in timing and breakdown in communication.  The normal smooth flow of operations from Divine Design may become sluggish or suddenly speed out of control.  Graceful movements may become clumsy or haphazard.  Satan may break up the peace, harmony, and order of God's Creation with chaos and confusion.

Since Satan is the enemy of God, his presence will be pointed out by the Holy Spirit in various ways.  Some of the ways the Holy Spirit gets our attention include:  Darkness in the soul, illusions of pride, sneezing, depression, sleepiness, anxiety, breathing problems, choking, coughing, bodily twitches, cramps, or pains.

Even though Satan is not personally attacking people, the world is under the power and influence of his Cosmic System.  The Grace oriented believer in the Divine Dynasphere is surrounded by people in the world who are full of Satan's influence.  The agents of Satan are frustrated liars and fat-headed arrogant snobs in their own brand of reversionism, whether the love of money, adultery, or inordinate ambition.  They are cell-phone addicts, eccentric perverts, and fools, who have been reduced to slobs by the lies, animosity, and evil desires of the Cosmic System.  The only peace of mind and true love comes from the believer who has the courage to resist the evil forces in Satan's empire.

Relationships

Since man is the witness in Satan's Appeal Trial, Satan can only win through man's testimony.  The testimony of demons is not permitted.  In order to secure man's support, Satan deploys vast armies of demons to influence mankind.  People have demons assigned to them.  Even mature believers and pastors have demons that shadow them.  Thus, any relationship with a person is a relationship with the person's demons also.  Marriage includes marriage not only to a person but to his demons.

People who are under the power of demons are the same as the Evil King, Prostitute of Babylon, or antichrist.  God determines the power these demons are allowed to exercise over people.  Demon power over people extends from mild influence to demon possession.  In possession the demon takes up residence in the person's body, and the person loses control of his faculties to the demon.

Most people are unaware of demons in their lives.  When demons cause some aberration, they discount it as a fluke and set it aside.  People have preconceived notions about what normal life should be, and anything abnormal is set aside.  Those people who recognize the abnormal and set aside the normal are called crazy or insane.

The only person who can truly keep his wits around demons is the Spiritually mature believer.  Most theology is simply religious philosophy, which is of little use against Satan.  Experiential sanctification is necessary to recognize Satan and his demons.  The barrier to Spiritual Rapport with God is Satan and his demons.  In order to have rapport with God, Satan and his demons must be neutralized or defeated.  This is only possible by the Grace of God because man is helpless against the unseen spirits.

Demon power over people is not just exerted directly.5  Direct attacks on a mature believer don't have much effect since the believer is not willing to entertain the demon's demands.  However, indirect attacks from the demons in other people have much more power.  Demons are able to harness the energy of their host and convert it into a very powerful force to use against another person.  These attacks can take a person's breath away or put his lights out.  However, God has to open the door for such attacks, and once the issues are understood, the attack, like lust, loses its potency.

Indirect attacks from people are not coincidental.  They are carefully orchestrated by God and Satan, who are locked in a vicious, deadly struggle with consequences for eternity.  If Satan loses, the fallen angels and unbelievers will burn with him forever in the Lake of Fire.  Only colossal arrogance would oppose the wisdom of God, but that is exactly what Satan and his followers have done.  That's what happened when Satan rebelled and convinced one third of the angels to follow him.  That happened in the Garden when Satan convinced the woman to follow him, and that is what has happened throughout history to unbelievers who follow Satan to death and destruction.

Indirect attacks on people only occur with God's permission.  God controls His Creation in order to administer a fair trial and give everyone a fair shake.  He gives unbelievers the opportunity to be saved and believers the opportunity to live the New Spiritual Life in Christ Jesus.  Those who want to serve God will have the opportunity, and those who want to serve Satan will have that opportunity.  The free will of man allows everyone to choose his destiny to serve God or Satan.

Indirect attacks on people have much more significance than demons trying to push people around.  Each person has a purpose in God's Plan and a role in society.  He is a husband or wife, a member of a family, an employee, a citizen, or a member of the Church.  When the husband or wife listens to Satan, the marriage fails.  When enough people abandon their patriotic duty, the nation fails.  And when enough people go into apostasy, the local Church fails.

When the Divine Institutions fail, Satan and his demons declare victory and take over.  There is anarchy, confusion, and slavery.  Satan hates all people, even his followers, and only uses them to achieve his ends.  Satan serves himself and has no regard for anyone.  He is a liar, a cheat, and a murderer.  Those who serve Satan have sold their souls for a mess of pottage.

So Satanic attacks on a person are not just aimed at the individual, they are aimed at the Divine Institution.  Satan's objective is to destroy the Divine Institution and control the human race with his brand of evil.  That includes annihilation of the Church and Israel.  If you are a Christian or a Jew, Satan wants you dead.  Christians restrict his power to rule.  That is why there is not a single Protestant on the US Supreme Court.  Doctrinal believers have rights in the Supreme Court of Heaven.  Satan prefers unbelievers and preferably those without conventional beliefs in the establishment.  He prefers liars, thieves, and perverts.

When a believer in the Divine Dynasphere comes under indirect attack from someone else in the human race, much more is at stake than a conflict of interests.  Each of the two humans are members of Divine Institutions which Satan is trying to destroy.  If the doctrinal believer falls into the Cosmic System, he will weaken the Divine Institution.  Satan tries to weaken the doctrinal believer and strengthen the evil person to destroy the Divine Institution.  If he succeeds, he will enslave everyone in the group.  He may take over a work crew, a business, a community, or the nation.  His objective is to rule the entire world with his brand of evil.

Indirect demon attacks are not just attacks from people but from Satan.  The attacker is the agent and pawn of Satan.  He is an Evil King, Prostitute of Babylon, or antichrist.  As such, he is a destroyer of God's Creation.  The doctrinal believer in the Divine Dynasphere must deploy Bible Doctrine to preserve his Spiritual Freedom and his temporal freedom in the nation.  Freedom is not secured by armies or constitutions or lying politicians, but by doctrinal believers in the Divine Dynasphere.  One believer who is willing to obey God can defeat Satan and thwart his evil plans for the conquest of the nation.

The war between Satan and God is fought by people.  Only people can bear witness for God or Satan.  The war is more vicious, and stinking, and rotten than any war in history.  Every day God and Satan parcel up the battlefield.  Some days people are sent to the front, and other times they have rest and relaxation.  The individual warriors do not usually know the master battle plan.  They must simply do their job; stay in ranks and fight; or search and destroy behind enemy lines.  They will receive no praise in this life for a job well done, but when they are recognized in the Court of Heaven, they will receive glory, honor, and praise in their resurrection bodies (Rom 2:7, 10; 1 Cor 4:5; 1 Pet 1:7).

Romans 2:7, 10 Glory and Honor in Eternity
to those on the one hand who on the basis of patient expectation from a Good work (Christ on the cross) are seeking Eternal Life, there is glory, honor, and immortality;
10  but glory and honor and peace to everyone who produces Divine Good, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Christians who are waiting patiently for Eternal Life after believing in Jesus Christ and His work on the cross, will receive what they seek at the Rapture (1Co 15:58; Ga 6:7-9; 2Ti 2:12; 4:7-8; Heb 6:12, 15; 10:35-36; Jas 5:7-8; Rev 2:10-11).  They will receive glory, honor, and immortality.
"Glory" is the glory of the Eternal State with Resurrection body and Eternal Life in the presence of the God of Glory and the Lord Jesus Christ (Rom 9:23; Jn 5:44; 2 Cor 4:16-17; Col 1:27; 1 Pet 1:7,8; 4:13,14).
"Honor" includes blessings, rewards, and recognition in Heaven (Prov 13:18; 22:4; Jn 12:26)
"Immortality" is the immortality of the soul and Resurrection body.  It corresponds to living eternally (1 Cor 15:54; 2 Ti 1:10).
"Peace" is a special blessing of tranquility of soul and harmony in a love relationship.  This is peace with God (Nu 6:26; Prov 3:16-17; Isa 32:17; Jer 33:6; Lu 1:79; Jn 14:27; 16:33; Gal 5:22; Phil 4:7).  There will be peace in the Millennium (Isa 2:4; Matt 25:34).
Those who gave up their lives for the New Spiritual Life in Christ will enjoy a special bond of love and honor with the Lord of lords and King of kings forever.  They will receive glory and honor and peace from God in Heaven.6,7

These honors will be bestowed on the believer who produces Divine Good.  Divine Good is the work of God bestowed upon the believer in Grace.  Receiving Divine Good requires executing the Spiritual life through the obedience of faith inside the Divine Dynasphere.

Personal Choices

The attacks from the Cosmic System are quite often beyond our control, but we can inadvertently invite them.  Bad decisions to perform human good, to react to injustice, to bristle with pride, or succumb to lust, can open the door to the Cosmic System (Rom 12:19).  The open door gives Satan and his demons access to our lives (Eph 4:26-27; 1 Tim 5:14).  Our failure to obey Bible Doctrine makes us vulnerable to Satanic attack.

Staying in the Divine Dynasphere is a personal choice which requires the Filling of the Holy Spirit, Grace Orientation, Doctrinal Orientation, Walking in the Light, Reciprocal Love for God, and prayer.  Divine Good must be produced and human good rejected.  The believer must choose Divine Good over evil.  He must have impersonal love for all mankind and avoid reaction to injustice.  He must reject the love of the world with its lusts.  He must reject temptation from the love of money or adultery.  He must choose to do Good and hate evil (Rom 12:9; 1 Thess 5:21-22).

The choice in the Garden was whether to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.  That was a choice for God or Satan.  The same choice for God or Satan still exists today.  Those who choose God will receive Grace and reap Eternal Life.  Those who choose Satan will die and reap eternal condemnation.
