Have you ever wondered about in what ways Satan infiltrate and weaken the church of God?
Since I had family members fighting the Nazi?s in World War II I took great interest in studying the war and why things lead to victory and loss. I did notice the tremendous underground network and infiltrating of the enemy behind the front lines preparing for the frontal main attack to follow. I Thank God Jesus for the evil Nazi leader Adolf Hitler making mistakes leading to the end of the war. This evil murderer of God's people the Jews and many millions of others displayed his greedy, prideful personality which lead to his fall. Hitler did not listen to advice and went to war against Russia in the middle of the winter while having his army spread on many fronts and the evil empire eventually fell and peace was restored.
What about you? What wars are you waging? If you believe in Jesus as Lord and keep His Commandments the Bible says in Revelation 12:7-17 you are at war with Satan whether you know or like it or not. The good news is you are victorious because the Lord Jesus is on your side!!!
If you have not surrendered your life to Christ Satan will leave you alone for the most unless you choose to worship him.
I received an e-mail Monday April 12, 1999 at approximately 12.44:37 P.M . I found it while cleaning out some files in he office the other day and thought someone might benefit from reading it. I have edited it a little bit backing it with Biblical principals. I wonder,.. are you aware of;
Satan called a world wide convention. In his opening address to his evil fallen angels now called demons, he said; ?My evil legions of demons. We can?t keep the Christians from going to church. We can?t keep them from reaching their Bibles and knowing the truth. We can?t keep the from conservative values based on God?s word in the Bible. But we can do something else. We the evil forces of the heavenly spiritual wicked heavenly places can keep the followers of the Lord Jesus Christ from forming and intimate, strong, loving relationship experience with their Creator God Jesus. If Christians gain the real connection by faith in their Lord Jesus our power over them is broken. So let them go to church, let them have their conservative lifestyles, but steal their time so they cannot have time for Christ and tap into His Holy Spirit power and be used by the LORD for His kingdom. Here is what I want you to do my evil demons;
Distract the Christians from gaining hold of their Savior Jesus Christ. Confuse people as to how they are saved. Let them think good works will save them and not the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross as payment for their sins. Confuse people about the Born Again and baptism in the spirit thing, and get them involved in looking holy by false teachings on slain in the spirit and how much they hold their hands in the air or roll around on the floor and bark like dogs. Keep those who connect with the Lord Jesus for real busy with non-essentials of life and occupy their minds with worldly greed. Tempt them to spend, so they will have to borrow money and put a debt burden on them to cover their lust for finer things.
Get them so busy they have not time for prayer, their husband wives and children.
Block out their air space with loud non-Christian music and noise where ever they are. Keep the TV, VCR, DVD, CD, Cell phones, and other technical inventions going so they will not hear the small still voice of the LORD.
Fill the air waves constantly with anti-Christ music and evil movie commercials. Jam their minds and break the union with Christ. Put guilt trips on them for not being good enough Christians. Send accusations among them to cause division in the churches. Put demons in non-believers and oppress the true believers around the clock the more they seek to serve the Lord Jesus.
Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day. Break them down and take away their joy. Let them be depressed. suicidal and cause them to divorce so non-believers will see they are NOT better than them, and being a Christian is fake and hypocritical. Have many say they are Christians who are not truly sold out to Christ having surrendered to Him.
Flood them with information about worldly desires through billboards, junk mail, sweepstakes, the lottery creating false hope and trust in money rather then God Jesus.
Discourage them from going out in God?s created nature to reflect on God?s wonders. Send them to Amusement parks, sports events, concerts and movie theaters instead to mingle with the filthy world filled with sex and violence.
And should they meet for spiritual fellowship let them gossip and small talk about others instead of having prayer time and Bible study tapping into the power of God?s word.
By all means keep them too busy to get close to the Lord Jesus.
What do you choose? To get busy with the world or first seek the kingdom of God Jesus and His righteousness as written in Matthew 6:33
And in Romans 12, Paul urge us to present ourselves as holy living sacrifices acceptable to God and NOT to be confirmed to this world.
My prayer is for all true believers to PRAY for the Lord Jesus to help us live for Him.
