Happy Jesus Day:
Yesterday, I discussed how demonic spirits attach themselves to us “because” we allow them to. We must close the doors that open in our lives. (Ephesians 4:26-27) Be angry and sin not. We must always recognize we live in a body of flesh, and we will respond in the flesh. We should not allow the devil to get a hold of us. Sin gives the devil a foothold in a person’s life; it is wise to discern what spirit is attacking you. Satan is not called the father of lies for nothing (John 8:44; Revelation 12:9). We see demonic deception in several ways. Satan blinds unbelievers to the gospel (2 Corinthians 4: 3-4). Demons seem to be the power behind other religions, acting as their gods (Deuteronomy 32:16-17; 1 Corinthians 10:20). I am not using my words; read the scriptures. Satan and his demons are ignorant. They use the Word to sound like the truth to believers to lead them astray (Matthew 4: 6). I pray daily for what I see happening in the world, and I read the Bible that says these are the things to come. I’m asking the Lord daily, Father, to help me understand and use me for your glorification.
