Isa 14:13-14 You said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God I will set my throne on high; I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north; (14) I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’
I haven’t sorted out how to add RASN to our sidebar so newcomers will know that it is an acronym for Revilers, Abusers, Sociopaths, and Narcissists. Anyway, there it is – RASN’s.
Now, you will agree that these kind are of their father the devil and so it is not surprising that they also say in their heart and mind “I will make myself like the Most High.” They really do in so many ways believe themselves to be gods.
Well, here are some humbling words for them (not that they will really be humbled, but it will do the rest of us good to hear these things)- No, Mr. RASN, you are not God. You are a creature, created by God just like all the rest of this whole creation. And as superior and godly as you think yourself to be, here is a blow to your arrogance: you are not capable of creation. You think that you are sooooo smart and soooo superior, that your mind is soooo vastly above others. But in fact, you have never once created a single object, a single thought, a single song or a single scientific law.
Think it through – man never creates. Not even the most brilliant human mind can create. Man cannot create a the most magnificent piece of music. He can only discover what is already there. Man cannot create theories like relativity or quantums (whatever those are) – he can ONLY discover what God has already created. Oh, I suppose there is one sense in which man can create – he can “create” that which is evil, unrighteous, ungodly and wicked. But when it comes to positive things – he only discovers. When that ancient guy in a bathtub yelled “eureka”! he hadn’t created a single thing. He only discovered another aspect of God’s creation.
So, guess what Mr (or Miss, Ms, Mrs….whatever you say nowadays) – you aren’t God. So stop acting like you are. In fact, anyone who acts as if they are God is, as the true God says, a fool.
Speaking of fools – I watched a video on youtube of Dr. Les Carter in which he deals with the fact that narcissists are….stupid. Dense. Foolish. Oh, as he says, they can have lots of knowledge and be quite intelligent in regard to data, but wisdom is an entirely different thing. Wisdom is the ability to discern and apply the moral and ethical rightness of things that are known. One, for instance, may boast about how amazingly intelligent the makers of the atomic bomb were – but were they wise? RASN’s are incredibly stupid. I bet you’ve seen this in play. These beings who act as if they are gods do the stupidest things that very often are like them sawing off the branch they are sitting on.
Satan then, though amazingly crafty and smart, is stupid. He raged against Christ and sent Him to the cross, where the Lord Jesus conquered the devil once and for all. Sin is insanity. It is choosing death over life. And life is something only the Lord can create and give. To reject Christ is to choose eternal death. Indeed, the fool has said in his heart, there is no God.
