And do not give place to devil. Ephesians 4:27
The enemy is not after your money or your stuff.
He wants your mind, your attitude, your heart, your faith, your peace.
Similar to God’s holy spirit, demonic spirits can enter our lives: influencing, oppressing, controlling us or making us obsessive. God’s Holy Spirit can influence, transform and liberate us if we allow Him to. God only needs an open heart, and the enemy needs an open door: an entrance, permission.
I’m not sure why God is taking me this route, but I follow His leading! I would love to sit here and write encouraging messages, but good food is not always sweet, it”s also well-seasoned with salt, pepper and Adobo (lol).
Yesterday, I mentioned my involvement with Mysticism and the occult, and mentioned different religious/spiritual practices in the world. Today I want to show you how we give the enemy power , as a church and also individually.
- The occult: Idolatry, sorcery, witchcraft, new era, transcendental meditation, refer to the dead, divination, etc.
- Omens: Astrology, Horoscopes, Candles, Predictive forecasts, tarot card, cup and palm readings, etc.
- Murder: abortion, suicide, homicide, assisted murder, euthanasia, anger-bitterness, violence, hatred towards others, violent video games & movies, etc.
- Unhealed traumatizing experiences (un-forgiveness, inability to forget the wrong done): rejection, betrayal, abandonment, and abuse (sexual, physical, verbal, domestic, bullying), etc.And things that are obvious like the presence of deliberate sin (lack of faith resulting in panic attacks, tantrums, comfort seeking, or breaking the covenant we have with the word of God), confessing of negative beliefs (I’m so sick and tired, I’m dying, FML, etc.) and negative statements made (bitterness, gossip, slander, envy, narcissism, etc.), and finally, self dependency (carnality in keeping religious law and having no mercy or love) are also entry points for demonic spirits.
My demons though quiet, are never quite silenced. Calm as they may be, wait patiently for a reason to wake, take an overdue breath, and crawl back to my ear. Unknown
Let’s pray, make this personal:
Father God I come to you to repent of the sins in my life and also to ask you forgive my family and loved ones. I personally repent of all disobedience, rebellion, lying or cheating, or being perverted, of sexual lust, lusting after things (wantonness), idolatry, all and any occult involvement. I rebuke, cancel and destroy every assignment and attack from the enemy in my life. God show me (the person reading this) how I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus. I take authority not of my own, but of Jesus’ supreme authority: the authority given to Him in heaven and on earth, I cancel the power of every word spoken over my life through which Satan received access, either by me or spoken by any other person. I break soul ties with men and women, whether in music, TV or in daily life. I break all spoken or written curses and spells that may have been performed against me or my loved ones, and even anything we have agreed with in ignorance, because of being involved or being curious with mystical and carnal things like Ouija boards, pornography, secular music, gambling, demonic movies, lottery investments, psychic resources and astrology omens. And I break every curse and generational curse over my family, that may have been operating in our life, the blood of Jesus against you Satan. In Jesus name, Amen.
