Plan of the enemy :
Causing maximum damage to your soul and leave you empty and wounded, is the plan of the enemy.
Strategy of the enemy:
Talking you out in mind and stopping you from the truth of the cross, where our savior Jesus gave Himself to redeem us and a blood covenant made to protect, heal and bless. Stopping us knowing that God is our daddy, if we believe in Jesus.
Stopping us knowing our authority and power through Christ.
1 Peter 5:8 New International Version (NIV)
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Adam and eve were tempted in three areas, the same 3 areas Jesus was tempted, and the same three areas we His children also being tempted. (1 John 2:16)
- Lust of the flesh
- Lust of the eyes
- Pride of life.
Christians those are not spiritual but carnal, fall for these temptations and give their souls to evils to work through them. Those who are carnal cannot learn anything that is spiritual, cannot grasp spiritual things and so they cannot be powerful. We are created in the image of God , that is He gave a command, a job to Adam and eve to multiply.
Genesis 1:26-28 New King James Version (NKJV)
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all[a] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
His image, the nature of God they carried should be multiplied through all generations.
We those believe in Jesus are born of the spirit of God, we are born of the seed of God,
1 John 3:9 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
We are born of an intelligent God, and we have the mind of Christ.
1 Corinthians 2:16 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?”[a]But we have the mind of Christ.
But being carnal we give ways for all sin practices and sear our conscious. One cannot see the real blessings flows out of us through our Father. Enemy tries to damage your soul to the maximum, which is your mind, emotions and will, that your body also being defiled by sins, which will in turn make you only living by flesh and not in spirit.
Remember those who are born of God are not flesh but spirit. (John 1:16) (John 3:6)
Allow your spirit which is connected with Holy Spirit to lead you.
Practicing sin can be interesting and nothing seems wrong for all those who are in addictions. All Christians who are not practicing love, but strife and division, they cannot be spiritual.
If you are living in sin and not repenting, you are half living in Christendom because you know Jesus, and allow Him to live with you while you live with sin, and half living in dark kingdom.
Remember Jesus came to deliver us from dark kingdom, NOT to have His name and live in sin and darkness.
One common question every carnal Christian or people who are in addictions have is
” What did God give us ?”,
” Why didn’t He save us from this problem?”,
” Where was He when i failed?”.
The answer is my dear brother / sister, you are offended with God and your unbelief did this to you not God.
Your lack of trust in God caused this trouble.
You are blaming God, who is really your help, you are not blaming devil for all your losses, your issues that went wrong, or the sicknesses either.
You are blaming God the one who gave His only son to deliver, heal and to bless you.
Your words are opening demonic doors in your life, be aware of that, not just blaming God but saying every hate filled words opens demonic doors. Demon influenced thoughts are the places where you loose your battles and surrender to demons instead of filling yourself with God’s word about you.
And quoting scriptures not living them won’t help either.
If you don’t renew your mind daily, with words of God you are allowing evils to talk to you.
You are more powerful in the Spirit realm because of Jesus name and because of the blood of Jesus.
Be who you are . You are God’s sons.
And they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.
Revelation 12:11 New King James Version (NKJV)
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
The devil is a liar don’t listen to him.
John 10:10 New King James Version (NKJV)
10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
