We have attempted to analyze overt behavior as illustrated by the reversionistic believer. As a reminder, a reversionist is a believer imitating an unbeliever. One of whom returns to his or her old ways prior to receivership of Jesus Christ.
This morbid overt behavior is compared to a dog and to vomit. This tortured soul returns to vomit as a dog and licks it up, (2 Pet.2:22). Vomit is the vile waste within the system that must become expelled from the body. Once expelled it is again consumed. What is of greater shame than to see a Christian (Improper), wallow in his or her own vomit.
To turn back is to wallow in one’s own vomit, as Moab had done unto himself,(Jer.48:26).This is a reversionist in action. Each mental attitude sin creates more of this vomit (sins), After becoming vindictive and implacable this loser believer begins to hate that which hinders his or her rise to self-importance.
Hate is only the coveted position, statute or recognition realized at this point. He or she hates the Christian (proper), for possessing that which the reversionist seeks through his or her overt, satanic activity in Satan’s Cosmic System. It is the utter immature pretense of deliberate falsification.
Under the emotion of hate, he or she has become satisfied with their own brand of wisdom. These destroy God’s plan in it’s true form, and become determined to use within their own design. Unchecked, these will become inadequate and face the sin unto death by Satan’s psychological mutilation.
These hate the victims to the extent of the harm or loss created by their own demented imagination. The hate that is manifested is not towards the individual , rather it is hate towards seeing in the Christian proper, those virtues or qualities that is lacking in their own lifestyle. This leads back to jealousy.
As with the other MAS, it feeds and grows on accompanying sins. Hate is manifested anger centered on the self. Hate and anger are birthed from the inadequacy inherited from the rebellious sin nature generated from reversionism.
Due to negative volition and the persistent arrogance, God will deliver this loser, reversionist into the mind set of lusts, and passions of dishonor, (Rom. 1:24,26). As hate continues as motive to attack, the loser’s , character and quality of life will deteriorate. In this state of self-destruction, the hatred now becomes, Anger.
Angry at self for the position of weakness, at the fellow believer (proper), and at God for allowing self to implode into rebellion and for becoming a victim. The reversionist under this self-centered thinking will place the blame for failure on others for the MAS, and inadequacies in his or her miserable life. As scar tissue adheres to the soul, and blackout ensues, a guilt reaction places this loser believer into, self -pity.
These two sins are the topic of lesson six, next Sunday. Two weeks from this lesson we will present,” Christmas With Christ.” The ways and means leading to freedom from the, “Mental Attitude Sins.” If you have followed us this far, thank you. We pray and believe that the Holy Spirit will continue to instruct you in your quest for knowledge.
May God bless you and yours as you travel God’s highway of truth, as cold and hard as it is.
I do not regard with much astonishment the pretensions held by reversionists. They will substitute their fabricated idols or beliefs for God’s word and application. They limit their intake of knowledge to a simple expression which is suggestive of self-appeasement.
