Good morning dear readers, this is a beautiful day! Let us continue our subject of thought, shall we?
Last time I explained to you exactly what the devil wants you to think. He disguises himself
Yeah, this guy IS NOT YOUR FRIEND..
as “alien beings” or whatnot to make you think that there are actually extraterrestrial creatures out there, “watching over you”. Please, my dear friends, do not be deceived.
Like I said before, the devil will disguise himself as an angel of light to trick the people of this world and make them doubt the Word of God.
Now, the devil is always on the look out to harm you if he gets a chance. But do not be afraid, because we can make sure that he doesn’t get a chance like that.
First of all, if you are being tortured by any sickness or illness, or if you just can’t find peace of mind, then you must realize it is the doing of the devil, and not the Lord.
In Luke, Chapter 11, verse 14, we read of how a dumb person got healed:
“And he was casting out a devil, and it was dumb. And it came to pass, when the devil was gone out, the dumb spake; and the people wondered.”
It turns out that it was not the person that was dumb; it was rather the devil that had caught hold of him that was dumb. The devil had the defect, and so when he caught hold of that person, his defect played out as the person’s defect. Do you see how the devil can make his own characteristics play out in you? This is the same way that some people do the most devilish things to others around them. Some people commit such heinous crimes to other innocent souls, that anyone would wonder if a normal human would have the heart to do such a thing.. Yes, it’s not human nature to do these evil things. It is none other but the devil. The devil is very tricky, and you have to be careful and strong in your faith to repel him.
This is why I urge you to realize that the devil is the one responsible for all your illnesses. If you are diseased right now, all it takes is one rebuke in the name of the Lord, and the devil will flee.
Now, if you think that the devil can attack you and affect you at any time, then think again. The devil has no right or authority to harm you, UNLESS you give him that authority.
Here’s what I mean by that: Ephesians 04:27 says:
27 Neither give place to the devil.
You’re the one responsible for not letting the devil inside
You are the one responsible for keeping the devil out of your heart. You have the decision to make about who you’re going to give place in your heart to: the Living Jesus Christ, or the devil. Sin, reject Christ, ignore the Word of God, and your heart is already occupied by the evil spirit. On the other hand, repent, pray, love God, be righteous, believe, and you your life will be much better, for the King of Kings will dwell within your heart.
You are the one responsible for holding up your faith and repelling the devil. How can you repel the devil? Here’s how:
Ephesians chapter 6 verse 11 says:
“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
That is precisely how you can stand against the devil’s attacks. Put on the WHOLE armor of God, not just a few parts of it. In my previous posts, I have talked in detail about each and every part of the armor, and you can check each of them out by moving your mouse over the tab that says “Armor of God” and clicking on each article.
The devil does not like anything you do to please God. He wants control over man, the creation of God, and he’s constantly trying to make his dreams come true. Our faith and righteousness is what shatters his dreams.
Every time we stand up for the Lord, every time we proclaim His kingdom, every time we turn away from sin, every time we pray for the will of God, we are trampling upon the devil’s spirit. Every time we preach the word of God, every time we lead another to faith, every time we reject the tempting offers of the devil, his plans are failing, and his powers are becoming useless against us and the ones around us.
No one wants to hear about the devil. Most people just go on about the blessings of the Lord and teach people of nothing but bliss and happiness. Yes, the Lord is a good God. He is the kindest Being to ever exist. But we need to also be aware of how the devil, our enemy, works. How can we defeat or proclaim victory over an enemy unless we know his tactics and know how to fight them?
I am not afraid to speak of the devil, because he is nothing but a liar, an evil entity that wants nothing but to destroy the happiness of the True Children of God, and if my readers know what tricks he has in his hat, then my readers will be able to foresee his deception and fight against him.
Our Lord has already claimed victory over sin and death. He is the King of all Kings, and the ultimate power is with Him. Victory is His, and victory is ours.
