It Is Discerned!

Only by discernment can one really see as the Lord want us to see.

Father, open thou the eyes of our understanding.

Many are in defense of what they know not

Many are working contrary to the WILL of God and knoweth it not

Father, in your mercy, guide us and lead us on the path of righteousness!

Many are being led astray by doctrines of demons arrayed in purple.

Lord let every deception in our minds be striped away by your WORD, BLOOD, and HOLY SPIRIT

Demetrius was not about Artemis, he was about his pocket and led many to rise up against the true God.

“”Most of them had no idea what was going on or why they were there.””

Give us understanding Lord!

“”But before he (Apostle Paul) got away, a huge ruckus occurred over what was now being referred to as “the Way.”

A certain silversmith, Demetrius, conducted a brisk trade in the manufacture of shrines to the goddess Artemis, employing a number of artisans in his business.

He rounded up his workers and others similarly employed and said, “Men, you well know that we have a good thing going here—and you’ve seen how Paul has barged in and discredited what we’re doing by telling people that there’s no such thing as a god made with hands.

A lot of people are going along with him, not only here in Ephesus but all through Asia province. “Not only is our little business in danger of falling apart, but the temple of our famous goddess Artemis will certainly end up a pile of rubble as her glorious reputation fades to nothing. And this is no mere local matter—the whole world worships our Artemis!”

That set them off in a frenzy. They ran into the street yelling, “Great Artemis of the Ephesians! Great Artemis of the Ephesians!” They put the whole city in an uproar, stampeding into the stadium, and grabbing two of Paul’s associates on the way, the Macedonians Gaius and Aristarchus. Paul wanted to go in, too, but the disciples wouldn’t let him.

Prominent religious leaders in the city who had become friendly to Paul concurred: “By no means go near that mob!” Some were yelling one thing, some another. Most of them had no idea what was going on or why they were there. Acts 19:23‭-‬34 MSG

Deceived? Don’t Be!!!

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.

Jesus Christ came to reconcile the world to His Father! He, God became flesh and dwelt among us, healing, delivering, restoring, transforming and saving lives, yet He was said to be possessed by Beelzebul, the prince of demons. Matthew 12: 24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said, “It is only by Beelzebul,the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.” 

What is the nay sayers saying, what have they said about you that is causing you grief my friend? The religious, the ignorant will always explain away what they do not know or understand. Ego will not allow them to ask for understanding and insight from God. Today you might be said to be cursed, an Achan in the camp – Joshua 7:20, possessed by demons and all sort. Do not fret for they said the same thing about Jesus Christ. Often, it is the possessed that will first point an accusing finger at you because they know you are not in their camp. A true child of God who by discernment sees one possessed by demons will pray and take authority over that demon. You will pray in the Holy Spirit and make the demons uncomfortable as Jesus always does when He was here for greater works than His He said we will do. John 14:12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

Leonardo-da-Vinci-the-greatest-deception-men-suffer-is-from-89623.pngMatthew 12:25 Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. 26 If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? 27 And if I drive out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges. 28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.

31 And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven.32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.

35 A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in him, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in him. 36 But I tell you that everyone will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken. 37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Let every man examine himself, see if you are still in the faith, ask God to forgive, deliver, and cleanse you. Take authority over every contrary spirit to the Holy Spirit of God hanging around your life that wants to keep you in perpetual error, render it powerless in Jesus name. Ask for an infilling of the Holy Spirit afresh, stay in the word, repair the altar of prayer, praise and worship, seek the face of the Lord with all your heart. You shall not be deceived Friends.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
