TOPIC: Demons on Assignment
MFM Daily Devotional 26 May 2020 MESSAGE
A lot of demonic agents are on assignment today. I once saw a cartoon in a London newspaper. In it, there were two pictures. In the first picture was a man holding his Bible and going to church, with man’s suit a demon being pulled by, trying to prevent him from going. The second picture showed a man with empty bottles around him and he was drunk. Underneath his table was a demon who was fast asleep because he had finished his assignment on the drunkard.
Beloved, some people think that they can hide things from God, and that He would not know. What is being hold then seem to have forgotten knowing that nothing is hidden from God. Worst still that secret sin that is lurking in the corner of your heart, which you did not confess is obvious to the strong; man and he will use it to fight you harder. Your secret sin may be gluttony or anger or lust, if you do not confess and forsake it, it will feed the strong man.
If you have this kind of inner conflict in which the devil is trying to prevent you from serving God and you are still toying with sin, there will be trouble. A sister was undergoing deliverance ministration and the demon in her said aloud, “I will go out, as ordered, but I will come back because she is a fornicator.” God hates idolatry with perfect hatred and does not want His children to get involved in it. If you are one of those who buy jewelry that have strange inscriptions you may not understand the images of serpents and scorpions on them, unaware of the fact you are implicitly initiated and tied to the idol worship of those who fabricated them.
If you study the cultures of some countries, you will understand that most engravings on jewelry and decorations are not just put on them for the fun of it. They have occult meanings and implications. Even if decide to mine your gold yourself or bend your iron in the yourself, it is still bondage, let alone buying them. It will encourage the strongman to stay put in the object and it will continue to harass you. You cannot bind the strongman whose property is in your possession.
One great lesson which you ought to learn from today’s devotional passage is that you must never give room to the devil.
Prayer will open any door. It will move any mountain. It will displace every stumbling block. It will change any situation. It will transform any condition.
That evil wind that blew upon you shall go back to the sender in the name of Jesus.
HYMN – TO GOD BE THE GLORY
To God be the glory, great things He has done;
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
And opened the life gate that all may go in.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice!
O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory, great things He has done.
O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be,
Our wonder, our transport, when Jesus we see.
