SET YOUR AFFECTION

affection

It is important to note that the believer in Jesus must learn how to set their affections. If your affections are not set, you will be like a fish out of water. You will confess and believe God and even pray, but belimited in your ability to effectively live holy. Living holy is God’s design for the believer in Jesus Christ. It is written: “Be holy, because I am holy (1Peter 1:16).”

Setting your affection requires an object or person for which to set it on. For the believer in Jesus Christ, this must be Jesus. To begin the process of setting ones affection you must think about, almost romanticize heavenly things. Be in tune with the brevity of life and understand your eternal life has more weight. When this understanding/revelation becomes more concrete, you will receive a clearer picture of what having Jesus in your life really means.

This affection turns into a love affair that makes being obedient to the wisdom of God easier and easier. You will also see clearer and clearer the reality of the world in which you currently reside. The atmosphere around you will begin to change. Your prayers will take on more power and the things of this world will grow strangely dim. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life begin to take less and less of your time as you set your affection on things above.

Those things that are below are carnal and lead to a death without hope. Christians are hopeful that in death there is life eternal and full of glory. We cannot die an eternal death, because we already died when we received Jesus in the natural and because we set our affection on him.

This is the depravity of mankind without a relationship with Jesus. It is critical that the created being reunite with the Creator of heaven and earth to fulfill the perfect will of God. This behavior is not it.

Sin must be dealt with in order to have a heaven on earth experience. Sins solution is having a Savior named Jesus filling ones heart with agape love. Once the heartless individual is filled with the love of Jesus Christ then this individual can love their neighbor as themselves and love their own mothers good or bad.

SINS WAGE

sin

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. – Romans 6:23

Weathering the Storm

storm
As a believer in Jesus Christ the first thing you must understand is that this world is not your home. Do not forget this. This is important. I know you have decorated the home and everything looks nice, but you are a sojourner. This thought must be fastened within your mind.

Now that you understand that you live in a temporary home, whether you paid off the mortgage or not, you understand that all storms are temporary. They will all pass. A believer in Jesus Christ is an eternal being. The concept is difficult to grasp, but nonetheless truth.

While you live in this temporary body you are subject to invisible warfare. Because many believers miss the first paragraph, it becomes almost difficult for them to get the second and even this third. It is because you are stuck in the natural. If you had the eyes that I have you would see all around you demons and angels. God has given me eyes to literally see light battles within my home. These spirits interject thoughts within your mind constantly. Everything you do will either help aid in your success of the battle or give the enemy the leverage he needs to bind you.

As a believer in Jesus Christ, you cannot afford to let thoughts slip. Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Corinthians 10:5). When you allow thoughts to slip, you have just entertained fear, lust, and worry. Just because you believe in Jesus does not make you exempt, unless you catch demonic thoughts immediately and cast them down.

I will give you an example that happened to me on Friday, while I was out feeding the homeless. If you have read my blog for some time, you already know my weakness in the flesh is women. I know I have some company here. Don’t judge me incorrectly. We all have weaknesses. Anyway, the day was ending and the time for cleanup had begun. So, I went to the truck to get some cleaning supplies and before me, was a beautiful creature that God had created and she started to campaign (flirt) and immediately I felt the spirit of lust. I cannot remember what she said, but I know exactly how I felt. It was a super good feeling that I almost entertained, but as it came I cast it down within my mind and the feeling left and thank God I was saved.

Here is the thing. The spirit of lust would have entered me, if I did not cast it down within my mind. I could see she had the spirit of seduction, because of my gift, nonetheless all spirits use our weakness to get us to accept something so they can enter.

Your weakness may be worry or fear. The spiritual method is the same. Calamity comes and immediately the feeling of fear hits, now you have a very, very, brief time before fear enters and it is when you have accepted it. As a believer you should be filled with God’s word. The Bible says, “The Lord is my sheperd and I shall not want” this should immediately be the thought that casts down the thought of fear. Once fear enters he now controls you and you will need deliverance. This means fear will have to be cast out of you. You can be coached and see doctors and pastors and still be bound until that demon has been delivered from you. You will experience worry and fear over minor and minor things, some things that have occurred and things that will never occur.

Never underestimate the power of demons. If I had entertained that girl with the spirit of seduction, the devil would be sure to use it to destroy me. His mission is to destroy us all, by whatever weakness he can exploit.

A good baramoter for effective warfare is measuring the hours you spend watching television and the hours you spend reading your Bible. If you spend 105 hrs a week, which is 15 min. a day reading your Bible and you spend 210 hrs. a week watching television, that is one thirty minute show a day, do not be surprised by the infiltration of demons. Most shows teach demonic doctrines, so do not be shocked by your lack of power in God. Imagine the discernment you would have if you changed the times around.

The devil is a roaring lion always seeking to destroy you.

TEST THE SPIRITS!

laying hands

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. – 1 John 4:1-3

Recently, I have been in the path of those who claim to have gifts of healing, but they refer to their power coming from the Most High God. They deny Jesus. Some have even asserted to be in control of demons and are using them instead of the other way around. The delusion is thick, as the evil spirits have meticulously allured them through the flesh.

Do not allow these people to lay hands on you. They may heal you, but you will now be cursed and the healing does not come without evil spirits entering you. The moment you accept, like a vampire needs to be asked in, you have opened yourself up to demonic infiltration.

Any means of accessing the spirit world outside of Jesus Christ is a direct invitation to evil spirits. Yoga, meditation without Christ, automatic writing is demonic. There is no question whether each of these things, give you an experience, because they do. Because they have been designed by demons using man and demons have power.

If you are receiving what science calls sleep paralysis, you have demons. If you experience them pulling you out of the bed, you have demons. If you wake up in terror, you have demons. If you wake up screaming or have fear of sleeping with the lights off, you have demons. You have either allowed a false prophet to deceive you or some trauma in your life has allowed them to enter.

Side note: if you are obedient to the demands of the demons they will not attack you in the night. If you try to come to Jesus they will attack you. If you go in a different direction then they desire they will attack you.

So how does one get the above things to stop for good? Jesus. You confront the issue by confessing Jesus. Believing from the heart that God raised him from the dead and asking him for total deliverance.

Also, God has given certain men and women the ability to cast devils out. Only make sure their God is Jesus and not some ambiguous Most High God. Do not be deceived by this. Jesus is the only answer for mankind.
