Are you “believing the lies” of demons ?
Some of you do not realize how easy it is for this to happen because you automatically believe that your thoughts must be your own.
The Bible says, “God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.” (James 1:13-14)
“own desires” = your thoughts
“enticed” = external evil demons giving you ideas and encouraging you to follow through on wickedness
John 13:2 tells us “… the devil having already put into the heart of Judas Iscariot… ” and 2 Corinthians 10:5 says ” bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”
CLEARLY THE DEMONS ENCOURAGE YOU to do the EVIL that you (secretly) want to do ……. and if you go on listening to their promptings and acting on them eventually they could even persuade you to do things that you do NOT want to do…. simply because you are NOT analysing your thoughts critically … but have grown accustomed to acting on “impulse”.
The Bible tells us that God told Balaam NOT TO GO with the men that Balak sent to call him (Numbers 22:13)
But when Balak sent more messengers offering more money, riches and honour …… Balaam hoped “God would change His mind” because he wanted the wealth and rewards badly !….. GOD KNOWS YOUR HEART do not expect Him to guide you if your mind is already made up about what you want to do….. God has given humans free-will and will let you do whatever you wish, therefore when He “allowed” Balaam to go (the second time the messengers came to him) that was not His will…. that was not “changing His mind”…… that was allowing Balaam to proceed with his own desires….
1 Kings 13:9 tells us the prophet knew exactly what God had told him…. do NOT eat bread nor drink water in that place….
1 Kings 13:18 – 24 tells us he was tested and DECEIVED BY LIES from another “holy man” into thinking that “God had changed His mind” with disastrous consequences !
BEWARE ……. your thoughts….. and the things that people say to you……
LIES….. from your own mind…… from other people…… even from HOLY MEN !
HERE ARE SOME POPULAR LIES that the whole world is believing….
1. PEOPLE ARE BORN GAY ……. this is a LIE ….. NOBODY is ever “born” gay…..
2. ABORTION IS ACCEPTABLE…… this is a LIE….. abortion is NEVER acceptable, it is MURDER
3. PEOPLE ARE SMARTER AND MORE CIVILISED TODAY than “in primitive times” …… this is a LIE……. NOTHING significant has changed in human anthropology…… humans have the same mental capacity that they always had and the same propensity for evil deeds and violence…. the whole concept of EVOLUTION is a LIE.
4. ALL RELIGIONS ARE BASICALLY THE SAME…… “all paths” lead to GOD….. this is a LIE….. “there is a way that SEEMS right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverbs 14:12) ……. “NO one comes to the Father except through ME” (John 14:6)
