Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? Covid 19 has revealed beyond a doubt the evil intention and wickedness of man, the thought of the heart, how murderous it can be.
Revelation 12:15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.
We have seen and heard of those with slight provocation or even without any, intentionally spitting on the face of others, knowing fully well they could be spewing the virus on a more vulnerable person.
We have heard of victims that died as a result of such encounter with the new weapon of mass destruction, a killer, a super spreader, a carrier infected with Covid 19 spitting virus over them.
I wonder if you ever thought of people speaking evil into the lives of others as evil, killers of lives and destinies! The word of God says that life and death is in the power of the tongue – Proverbs 18:21.
Many on a whim spew out curses like rain, pouring out words from the deep seated wickedness, insecurity, pain and hurt in their soul on unsuspecting vessels. Matthew 12:35 The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him.
Others go around dropping venom on every surface, any ears that is accessible, for the detriment of many forgetting that we all will be judged by every careless and evil words we spew out. Matthew 12:36 But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgment for every careless word they have spoken.
Therefore, be careful of that which you feed your soul with as we prepare to walk into this new door of a new year that God in His infinite mercy is opening to and for you and I. Mark 4:24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued.
Be watchful, stay awake, pay attention, stay conscious of what you hear! Does it bring fear? Doubt? Demean you? Exalt Satan and his agent over Christ Jesus? Does it exalt any human in place of God? Does it convict you of your sins? Does it encourages the good in you? Does it inspire you to live a life that is worthy of your precious salvation? Does it glorify mammon? Does it make excuses for your life of sin? The words you hear and feed yourself on friends, does it strip you of human dignity?
We need to remind ourselves that God spoke the world into being! Words are powerful! Any avenue from which words are spoken to demean, discourage, abuse, and degrade you as a human being is not of God.
The whole purpose of the devil is to strip you naked of the Radiance of God’s Glory, he want to strip you of your identity as a child of God so he can rule over you as god! Satan will take over your mind, your free will subtly with the words he speaks to you. He is a master manipulator, a liar and a good orator! Read the temptation of Jesus Christ in the Books of the Gospels. You must resist the devil and counter his lies with The Word of God today as in this new year!
Flee from every appearances of evil – 1 Thessalonians 5:22. Don’t feed your soul with poison! It will kill ya! Feed your soul with the word of truth. Read the Bible and books that build you up. Edify yourself and others with the scriptures this new year. It shall be well with you and all that is yours in Jesus name. Amen
How do you discern who’s voice you are listening to? Any voice that speaks contrary to The Word of God is literarily not of God.
God spoke to Moses in the book of Exodus chapter 20 – (read for clarity), where He gave the Israelites commandments, laws, and principles to live by. In the New Testament, when Jesus was asked the greatest of these commandments by the Pharisees of His days, Jesus responded thus:
Matthew 22: 34 Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. 35 One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments
When you then hear any voice that leads you to hate God or other humans, you should know that, that voice is not of God. Any voice that instruct you to illtreat others, oppress them, oppose, malign or dissociate from anyone under any guise is not of God. Matthew 22:39 says to love others as yourself.
How do you discern whose voice you are listening to? Whose voice are you following? God’s voice or Satan’s?
The voice that encourages acts that produces evidence of the fruits of the spirit as stated in Galatians 5:22 is the voice of God.
Galatians 5:22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Any voice that encourages division, lies – for the devil is the father of lies – John 8:44; – oppression, abandonment, denial of justice, truth, dignity, equality of all men is definitely not of God. Any voice that speaks fear into your heart, unsettles your peace, and encourages wickedness is of Satan
A 16th-century priest named Dom Lorenzo Scupoli wrote, “The devil does his utmost to banish peace from one’s heart, because he knows that God abides in peace and it is in peace that He accomplishes great things.”
1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
John 8: 47 Whoever belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.”
And God says, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37 &38
The voices that tells you not to speak with another, encourages hate and division, causes disharmony amongst people, abandon cordiality and civility, feed your ego by taking you on ego trips, makes you think you are equal to God and places you as God in the lives of others is of the devil.
Christ is the image of the invisible God. The first born of all creation. For in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones, or powers, or rulers, or authorities; all things were created through him and for him.
Christ Jesus is before all things and in him all things holds together. Christ Jesus is the head of the body, the Church; he is the beginning and the first born from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. Colossians 1:15-18
Let this sink into your subconscious and no devil, demon, witch or wizard, no principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world will be able to oppress you or keep you in bondage to fear.
Jesus has supremacy over all and you are in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!
There is absolutely not a soul that lent itself to the devil that will come out unscathed.
Before you go all out on the offensive, to subvert, carry out the dictates of demons, do yourself a favour, read the story of Judas in The Gospel! Matthew 26 from verse 14 on.
And if I may suggest, watch Fallen by Denzel Washington. When the demons take over, they use and discards! What then?
Do not compromise good judgment for injustice to gain the whole world and lose your soul!
If you have to steal, kill, and destroy another to take hold, achieve your desired goal, working of ” miracles”, maintain status quo, and control, and the likes, you are nothing but an instrument of Satan for he is the one that have come to steal, kill and destroy – John 10:10
We will not be afraid for Christ Jesus our Savior has overcome and made a public spectacle of Satan himself – Colossians 2:15
Christ Jesus’s blood still speaks and is speaking right now for The Saints!
If you are not under the covering of The Blood of Jesus, the safest place to be is right here, in Christ.
Why would Legion, the many demon that took over the man in Mark 5 request not to be sent out of the area? Why preferring to possess animals instead of leaving the area? The demons were afraid of judgement, they did not want to be sent into the abyss, they have gained a foothold in the area, they had to stay even if its in pigs.
Demons are spirit being, they need a body to operate on earth. Pray that your mind, body and soul will not be taken over by such in Jesus name
The Bible in Revelation 12:7 Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down, that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
In Revelation 12 verse 12 the scriptures stated “Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you!
Ever since the devil has been owing sway over the earth, pursuing and attacking the seed of The Woman of Revelation 12:13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child….. the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon (Satan) was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring, those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus
The request of Mark 5:10 was made to enable them continue their task of waging war on those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.
Who would have thought the demon possessed man was ordained before the foundation of the earth was laid to be an evangelist – Jeremiah 1:5?
The devil knew and came in legion, yet God’s plan and purpose still triumph. Jesus set him free! May the blood of Jesus set you and I free to fulfill our God given destiny also. Amen! Hallelujah
We can see the effect of these demonic agent everywhere in individual lives, on pews, pulpits, homes, councils, politics, judiciary, everywhere, with evil laws, evil deeds, counsel and what not spewing out left right and center to trap believers like this man was trapped until Jesus showed up.
Almighty God, you know all things. Today I ask that you will show up for me, my brothers and sisters.
Exodus 8:28 Pharaoh said, “I will let you go to offer sacrifices to the Lord your God in the wilderness, but you must not go very far. Now pray for me.”
Friends, there are principalities and powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places that wants you and I to make progress but not up to our greatest potential as ordained by God.
There are forces of darkness waging war against everything, and every task you and I are embarking upon to make progress. It is time to arise and stand in authority over these wicked spirit.
Lord we thank you for your faithfulness and love towards us. We pray Oh Lord as you arose for Israel to deliver them, deliver us today in Jesus name. Let your kingdom come Oh Lord and your will be done in Jesus mighty name. Amen
The wicked draw their sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright. Lord let thier swords pierce thier own hearts, and thier bows be broken. Ps 37:14-15
Everyone that has made a vow with Satan let them pay with their own lives Lord.
Every appointment with lack, pain, and death that anyone has made on our behalf, Lord, let them fulfill the appointment with their own lives. He who digs a pit shall fall into it and he who rolls a stone shall have the same stone rolled over him/her, so shall it be for everyone in covenant league with the devil, they shall be caught in the very trap they set for us in Jesus name.
Lord let peace be far from the wicked one that has been tormenting our lives. “God is a just God: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well”. 2 Thessalonian 1:6-7
Every legs raised up to prevent our star and glory from coming out of obscurity be crippled in Jesus name.
Every force of darkness struggling to cover our star, I take authority over you in Jesus name be removed now in Jesus name.
The covenant of day and night cannot be changed or reversed, so therefore the covenant of life, peace, joy, progress, greatness, and abundant of all that pertains to life and godliness that I and my friends have with the Most High God shall not be changed or reversed in Jesus name.
We pray oh Lord that the power of the Holy Spirit will manifest in our lives to destroy every works of Satan in Jesus mighty name.
May the sword that is not of mortals pierce through the hearts of everyone in agreement with the devil against our lives and destiny in Jesus mighty name.
Lord Jesus arise on our behalf, fight for us against our enemies and give us victory over every long standing issues that has caused us untold pain.
Defend us Almighty God against marauding forces. Shield us by your mighty hand. Hide us under the shadow of your wings Oh Lord our righteousness in Jesus mighty name Amen.
Thank you Lord for answering all our prayers. Thank you for not leaving us to the will of the wicked one. Let your name be glorified in every facets of our lives. We declare your Lordship and majesty over our lives and situation. Be magnified Oh Lord, immortal, invisible, all knowing, only wise God , to whom be all glory and honor, world without end. Amen.
