26 Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; 27 A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day: 28 And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
When the Devil Gets In
Through out the ages of time we hear that this person or that person who was once enlightened to the truths of God and a born again follower of Jesus Christ has slipped back into sin and has chosen to turn their back on God and His ways.
The trials of life and the deserts of darkness that we’re prone to walk through can be the most catastrophic test that measures the balance of our faith and our personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and our Father in heaven.
The temptations of this world are so desirous and strong that the mightiest of men have proven themselves to be overcome by them and their disastrous results have condemned then to an eternal separation from God.
Compromise to sin is the norm for the modern day Christian. You’ll have to dig deep and search far and wide for a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ.
The message of repentance and the call to be holy as the Lord our God is holy is offensive and absurd to the modern day Christian.
Picking up our cross and actually following the Lord Jesus Christ has become legalistic and a hindrance to the modern day Christian.
Prayer and reading the Word of God has been replaced by so called Christian music by musicians and artists that have the same appearance and sounds that the secular musicians and artist of today’s world has.
The majority of the so called houses of God today are defiled temples that have invited the enemies of God into the church and have become modern day alters to age old pagan gods.
The modern day church has come full circle spiritually speaking and they are the modern day Adam and Eve’s picking the fruit from the tree that the Lord God said not to eat from.
When the Devil gets in the hearts and minds of the believer compromise is the solution for sin. Ignoring the truth is the solution for sin. Twisting Gods word is the solution for sin.
The Church today has run away from God. We are too entertained by our social media accounts and our modern day devices.
Facebook has become our gods. Snapchat has become our gods. Youtube has become our gods. Our methods and our ideals have become the new way to win the lost to Christ.
How in the world are we going to win anyone to the Lord Jesus Christ with these methods of man?
We won’t and we can’t!
Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
It always has been and it will always be the Lord who will add to the Body of Jesus Christ! Not man and not his ways!
When the Devil gets in we become deaf and dumb. When we start listening to the Devil it’s over!
Galatians 5:9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
Matthew 4:1-11 1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a innacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; 17 And then the LORD’s wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you. 18 ¶ Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. 19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates: 21 That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth.
30 I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; 31 And, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down. 32 Then I saw, and considered it well: I looked upon it, and received instruction. 33 Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep: 34 So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth; and thy want as an armed man.
