So here we are again……..this week. Like I said some weeks back, the MIND is the most versatile and most active part of a person……..the BATTLEGROUND of your being. It is where ideas are born, inventions are birthed…………the tiny propeller of the ship of a man. So the devil usually sends his spies there, and God sends his servants wit the intention of speaking to your mind.
Now, let me tell you how these “spies” operate: They give you a thousand reasons why something bad is “not as bad as you think”, they invent terms like “white lie”, “everybody does it”, “God understands that you are human”, “God loves you too much to punish you for just this” and many other subtle landmines they launch on your door in order to gain entrance into your life. One spy opens the door for the rest. A theft leads to a lie, to more theft and by then other spies are casually strolling in, setting the place ready for their master, the devil to come and take control. Most at times, excuses are the most versatile of the spies. They not only trap the entrance, but they keep out God’s servants from penetrating. No wonder Paul told us in 2 Cor 4:4 that the people of this world have their eyes blinded they can’t even see the truth. So sometimes we should not blame the atheists or the sinners; they opened the door to the wrong set of thoughts without knowing. “Even the Devil disguises as an angel of light”. And of course, whatever the mind decides, the body carries out……..so the person finds himself being controlled by his desires and lusts.
“My people perish for lack of knowledge” It’s time for God’s people to rise up and go back to the Word, they have been asleep for too long that they have not noticed how worldly the church has become, how ignorant of the devil’s mind tricks they have become. There has to be an end to this! Every child of God should start girding his loins because we are in the last days, and the devil is not smiling (he never did though) even in the uprising era of grace awareness he is still planting tares. Beware!!!! May God give us understanding. “Be ye transformed by the constant RENEWAL of your mind”………
Till next time I humbly remain,
