Pride: Satan’s Evil Fruit

pride
Pride leads to conflict; those who take advice are wise (Proverbs 13:10). Pride comes before destruction, and an arrogant spirit before a fall (Proverbs 16:18). All who fear the LORD will hate evil. Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance, corruption and perverse speech (Proverbs 8:13). Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom (Proverbs 11:2).

Satan will always promote pride. He knows the end of pride is eternal damnation. He knows that God hates pride and sends its participates to hell as they violate God’s Word. Pride is the indicator that Satan is at work. You will find him throughout Scripture to the present day using pride as a banner to hold & you will also see how those who adhered to its wisdom have fallen. Pride will always be pretty & attractive as it boasts. The ignorant and unlearned will submit to pride before they submit to Jesus and when pride is full, its fruit ends in tragedy.

Do not be seduced by pride, but rather drink from the spring of God. Meditate upon what Jesus has made available, because of the cross, that He died on to save those who put their trust in Him.

Spirit of Limitation

It is important that you understand there is an evil spirit of limitation that seeks to limit the believers effectiveness in extended the Kingdom of God. It works to remove your 30, 60, 100 fold blessing that could be used to bless you and glorify God and others. This evil spirit is a gateway spirit that is a puppet master for other evil spirits. He uses the spirit of jealousy, pride, envy, lust, seduction, anger, and fear to cause limitations in your life.

He seeks to limit you in every area of life, so that you are doing nothing, making no income, and ultimately sticks you with an evil spirit of depression as he grooms you for suicide. You can overcome all these avenues through Christ. Recognize his work in your life. You cannot fight an enemy you don’t know exist. Now that you read this you know.

So how do I fight him? Identify areas of waste in your life. For example, an evil spirit of lust drives you toward pornography and you watch this for four hours a day, that is going to limit you. It disconnects you from God and produces no good fruit. Or you spend hours watching home improvement, plastic surgery or housewives daydreaming about how nice it must be to have a Ferrari and a huge home. You are doing nothing but consuming time and producing no good fruit.

What you do not do is spend four hours a day praying. This will produce good fruit. God speaks to those who seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness. The bottomline is that the evil spirit of limitation may be cast out of your life, but his work is through other evil spirits that will require you to exercise your spiritual understanding to win the war against spiritual wickedness.

Identify and destroy. Be fruitful and multiply.
