There Is No Devil

The greatest lie from the pit is this – “there is no devil!”

And a great deal of the church is actively believing this lie.

And while that lie is being swallowed (hook line and sinker) the other one is so much more easily accepted is this . . . that the Baptism (and subsequent gifts) of The Holy Spirit was for back then, no longer for now.

Ironically, the first gift of The Holy Spirit God tends to activate is “the discerning of Spirits”, so that Christians can see, hear and know when they’re being sold a “bill of goods”  (a lie!).  Or see and identify the power of darkness working it’s destruction in certain situations.  So . . . no Baptism of The Holy Spirit, our discernment is not very strong at all – just merely human.

OK, so, if there’s no devil, what’s the need to even really entertain a whole host of supernatural “gifts” that essentially have no purpose in this modern day walk with Jesus – right?

Wrong!  No Devil - new culture

John 10:10  (NIV)

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

 

The devil gets away with murder (steal, kill and destroy) because a huge chunk of God’s kids can’t see him, or don’t even believe he exists!

This must change – and change now!

If we don’t take scripture as scripture then we’re doomed to fail our watch, our walk, and to leave any meaningful legacy for the next generation of “the children of God.”

If we do take on scripture as scripture life gets a whole lot more exciting – we can win against darkness in Jesus name and baptized in the Holy Spirit and His gifts!

Luke 10:19 (NIV)

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

 

Once we’re fully “clothed” (so-to-speak) as God intended we then have to intentionally step into the arena and use the gifts – if we don’t, they fade and we slip back into being religious people, trying to achieve supernatural results by natural means.

2 Corinthians 3:6  (NIV)

He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

 

Jump in – go for it all people!  Ask God for it all!  I want it all!  Do you?

 

God is amazing!
