FIGHT FOR YOUR SOUL
Memorise: for the word of god is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews: 4:12
READ:- 1ST JOHN 4:1-6 (KJV)
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.
6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: ISAIAH 58-60; LUKE 6:1-23.
The greatest battle that has ever been fought and is still being fought and is in the heart of man. This battle is being fought by God on one side and the devil on the opposing side.
Whoever wins this ultimately wins control over the soul of the individual over whom the battle is being fought. The devil has been interested in the souls of men ever since God created us, and his plan has always been to destroy as many of us as possible.
Our Lord Jesus Christ revealed the devil’s plan to us and offers us God’s solution, saying in john 10:10: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Through the ages, the devil has succeeded in taking over the lives of so many people, and for this reason, the Lord said in Matthew 7:13:“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in there at:” In spirit of all that the devil may try, my prayer for you is that I will see you in heaven in Jesus ‘name.
In the world today, there is so much wickedness and confusion everywhere. Sin has become so common place that it is very strange and rare to see someone who is pure and refuses to be part of the evil of the day. These are some of the signs of Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24:3-31.
In order to further achieve his aims, the devil has employed false prophets into his service. They go around disseminating false doctrines which are even more dangerous to Christians, because they can make a person think that he or she is saved and safe while they are actually on their way to hell.
One of the reasons why many of these false prophets are so successful is that they keep telling people what they want to hear and not what the Bible says (2 timothy 4:3).
The bible is the written word of God, and so, anyone whole deviates from it by as much as a dot is not of God and doesn’t have your best interest at heats (2 peter 1:20-21). God’s word is absolute, and it must be preach in it pure form.
The best way to guide your heat in these perilous time is to fill it with the word of God and to constantly meditate on the word as much as possible. Once you give your life to Christ and are sanctified by God, it is important to ask for the baptism of the Holy Spirit so that Jesus Himself can fill you to overflow with his spirit and mark you for Himself.
Prayer Point: Father, let your word have free course in my Heart and fill me to overflow with your Spirit.
