More points are shared on delusion and genuine revelation as tools of divinity.

 

THE BATTLE AXE:  About Deluding Yourself? (09/22/2014)—(4.)  Commitment, conviction, faith and trust toward GOD are responses to hearing the Gospel, because the word of GOD that a hearer receives is divine substance from the full makeup of divinity.  Seeds for the various inseparable aspects of sacred being are added to the existing spirit makeup of the hearer.  Included are forbearance, forgiveness, holiness, joy, longsuffering, love, meekness, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  While many forms of delusion are generated by exaggeration and unhealthy focus upon oneself (e.g., depression, despair, self-criticism, self-justification, self-promotion), there is no revelation from GOD to created beings and living creations that is produced by human self-awareness and self-will.  The divine process of revelation is intended as a benefit to all the living throughout the universe of GOD, and does not confuse, damage, distort, or pervert the existence of sentient beings.

(5.)  There is a prophecy in the Scriptures where GOD declares that delusion, fear and lies will be a divine tool used in judgment against idolatry, false worship, presumption, and pride (Isaiah 66:  4, KJV).  In addition, there are statements revealing divine intent, the mystery of iniquity, and events just before the coming of Jesus.  Assurances are given to the church, the Antichrist is described, and the wicked are sealed in eternal condemnation through delusion and believing lies (see 2nd Thessalonians 2:  1-15).  In other passages, delusion is described as blindness and madness, yet, is shown to be a tool for divine admonition, correction, destruction, punishment, and warning that serves to further the fulfillment of divine operations.  Consider also Deuteronomy 28:  28-29, Deuteronomy 29:  29, 2nd Kings 6:  18, Ecclesiastes 9:  3, Zechariah 12:  2-6, Luke 6:  1-11, John 9:  1-5 and 39-41, Romans 11:  24-26, Ephesians 4:  14-25 and 2nd Peter 2:  9-19, KJV.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:  for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:  as it is written, The just shall live by faith.  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  (Romans 1:  16-22, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Focus of Believers? (06/17/2014); Discernment (06/18/2014); Certainty by Faith or by Tradition? (06/19/2014); Night Cometh (06/11/2013); Personality? (04/27/2014); Anointed? (04/28/2014)

 

There is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (6.)  Christian believers understand that delusions may appear as fantasies regarding wealth and power.   It is often missed and overlooked that delusions also appear as claims of innocence and purity; avarice and covetousness; desire for grandeur; fantasies of closeness and intimacy within relationships marked by separation; presumption and unrealistic notions of personal power.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
