satan is the “god of this world.” In other words, he is the world’s god. While the Bible indicates that God gives us a grace period until we have the ability to choose between right and wrong, until we make a conscious choice to align Jesus, by default we are lost to the enemy of our souls (Ephesians 2:2, John 8:44).Yeshua / Jesus refers to the devil a thief, who came to kill, steal and destroy lives and even all of God’s creation. We can overcome him and his demons by turning to the One True God who equips us with His spiritual armor as listed in Ephesians 6:10-20. Become intimately familiar with this armor that will save your life. Sleep in it. Never take it off. Bind the two-edged sword to your hand so that you never lose its grip.
Another influence that we often need to overcome is ourselves. These fleshly bodies that house our spirit and soul often become accustomed to indulgences that are contrary to the goodness of God. The Bible is very clear regarding how to keep ourselves spiritually clean; the way He wants us to be.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Phil 4:8
Obviously there is much, much more to this subject than this very short introduction. Yeshua came to destroy the works of the devil and so if you are experiencing difficulties it is these kinds of forces that work to keep your life in turmoil. Feel free to contact us if we can be of assistance.
