People of God how are you?
When we sin we believe that we have erred on our own but we forget that sin actually glorify Satan just as works of faith and love also glorify our Lord Jesus Christ.
Can people sin willfully and on their own without being prompted by the devil.
Of course they can but today I am talking about those who sin under the prompting of the devil. Who no longer have full control of their mental faculties.
In the deliverance room we encounter people who are no longer in full control of their lives. They are held in bondage and forced to glorify the devil.
John talks about this kind of bondage and reveals that Jesus came to destroy it.
Lets look at the following scripture:
1 John 3:8
AKJV: He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning.
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
NLT: But when people keep on sinning, it shows they belong to the Devil, who has been sinning since the beginning. But the Son of God came to destroy these works of the Devil.
NIV: The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.
Sin is infact the devil’s work and Jesus was made manifest to destroy it. He did this through his sacrifice on Calvary.
The angel Gabriel tells Mary to name the boy Jesus for “he shall save his people.”
Deliverance is the noble work of saving people from the clutches of the devil.
There are people who are in so much bondage they don’t even know they need deliverance.
If you raise the subject to them they deny even the existence of God.
The devil can have his way with people to a point where demons build fortresses and defense walls against the word of God.
I have encountered some people in the deliverance room who are under so much bondage the devil owns their soul, their mind and their body.
Talking to them about God without first administering deliverance is impossible.
You think you are talking to them but it is the demon who now speaks on their behalf and curses God, denies the existence of Jesus and commits all sorts of acts of ungodliness in defiance to God’s holy laws.
Fear not for the word of God is sharper than any double edged sword.
One way or the other, it will pierce to the center of their souls and destroy the fortress of the devil.
There is hope yet for the captured soul.
Keep on sharing the word of God prayerfully and with love, it will tear down the enemy’s defenses and win back the captured soul.
Have a blessed day
