Lies

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)

 

error

Alas,  I am  guilty of  “interpreting the Scriptures through my own personal experiences” …. so I have extensively RE-WRITTEN my posts on Addiction and Masturbation… in light of fresh revelation from God.

Last night, God showed me the lie in my own heart…. how can I be so “DOGMATIC” about HIS ways ?…  just based on my own limited personal experience or viewpoint ?

DEMONS are associated with ADDICTIONS (whether it’s drugs or sex)… and I did not “escape”…. How dare I publish something suggesting that masturbation could be “good for you” when He had to go to such great extent to DELIVER me from the consequences of my own actions…. therefore I repent and ask your forgiveness…. you may re-read the contents of these posts online (if these topics are of interest to you).

NO HUMAN has “all the truth of God”…. we are all learning together throughout life….  therefore we must be willing to “eat our words” and be humble.

It is a serious thing, to promote ERROR in the name of the LORD….. therefore I could not simply correct the posts WITHOUT informing those to whom it was emailed (in it’s original state)

Greater is the responsibility of the TEACHER…. however I can not simply stop teaching…. because God has called me to do it….

All I can do is make correction …. whenever He shows me to make correction…. because it is not about me….. but about HIM.

blessing

Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD….”

Does any such nation exist today ? In Barbados, our political party rallies and legal functions still begin with prayer… the words to our national anthem still place God as the unseen ruler of our land… inspite of whatever lack of committment or lipservice to God may exist in the organisations of State, we still acknowledge God publicly from the highest office in our land…. but we cannot take this for granted, we must be diligent individually and as a nation to guard against the IDOLATRY of the present age.

How is it that in the United States and England it has become a crime to speak of God in public schools ?  Could there be a connection between the current state of our world and the present GODLESSNESS of all it’s leaders ?

Beware of HUMANISM, it sounds ever so “right”…. after all, the second commandment tells us to love our fellow man as ourselves…. but behind the humanist agenda, MAN is seen as his own god…. gone are the idols of silver and of gold…. but man is now worshipping HIMSELF…. the “wisdom” of the atheist and the evolutionist…. the gods of materialism, comfort, pleasure…. it is all happening even as I write this.

The problems in Haiti are spiritual….. no amount of aid is going to assuage the Haitian people or offer any “permanent” cure to their ongoing disasters….. until the land is cleansed of the VOODOO demons, but this has to happen across the board…. the leadership as well as the masses of the people need to REPENT and turn to GOD ….. NATIONALLY.

There are those who resist this concept…. they say all “faiths” must be respected…. and the Christian Bible must take it’s place among all the holy books of other faiths…. all religions are basically the same…. is this true ?

HISTORY does not support this idea….. from the time that God called Abraham to the present day Israel….. supernatural judgement has been meted out to all the other “gods” of the various nations.

Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD: that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to carved images”

Let us do our part to exalt the GREAT GOD of the UNIVERSE…. and rebuke and correct “wrong” thinking and compromise whenever we encounter it.

All it takes for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing.

Collectively we must speak out and insist that Barbados retains it’s historical identity…. and does not “give in” to the current “world view” of  SECULAR HUMANISM.

Prayer for Today:

Father, we are powerless to change the world as individuals… but we CAN do our part by refusing to  accept the current “world view”…. and by speaking out boldly as your Apostles did two thousand years ago… thank you for today… in Jesus name we pray… Amen.

commitment

Matthew 24:12

“And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold”

Luke 18:8

“…. Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth ?”

1 Timothy 3:5

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the  power of it”

Professed Christians who deliberately reject truth as to:

1. the Deity of Jesus Christ

2. Redemption through His atoning and redeeming sacrifice

This is NOT ignorance or heresy (due to the snare of Satan) both of which can exist along with true faith.

Apostates depart from the faith…. but not from the outward profession of Christianity.

believing themselves to be “true” Christians, they replace some of the truth of Scripture with fables.

Prayer for Today:

Loving Heavenly Father, Please give us WISDOM as we study Your Holy Bible… so that we be not deceived when others around us twist the meaning of the verses to satisfy their own devised doctrines… Amen
