We often hear people say that our worst enemies are ourselves and isn’t it true ?
We get into the habit of putting the blame on others and we give too much credit to the devil sometimes. Don’t get me wrong blog- reader, the enemy is an expert when it comes to tempting and he’ll do just about everything to get us to disobey God BUT we are the ones who make the choice. We choose which path to take, how far we’d go, the spirits that try to shackle us ? you might be surprised to know that they are not strangers, we actually know each and every one of them. We easily recognize pride, lust, greed, envy, anger, self- pity, depression, hatred, disobedience, malice, ungodliness, apathy, homosexuality, rebellion, etc... when we see it on others but we are either blind or in denial when these spirits are on us.

The sad thing is, most of the time we cover up our own personal demons. We know they are there, we get to a place where we realize their existence in our lives but we don’t do anything about them. Most people voluntarily enslave themselves to these evil spirits, and they nest in you and bring in more. And to those who doubt- yes, they are indeed demons so they must be exposed for what they truly are and not be masked under the many labels that man come up with, these spirits that I’ve just mentioned before are not mere products of our ‘psychological’ self. It is important to know that they are fallen angels and their mission is to destroy man’s relationship with their Creator, with our God.

They hinder us to come to God and all are vulnerable, both Christian and non-christian.
But our great God Almighty raised a standard against this evil. He provided a foolproof way of escape, see- He gave us Calvary, He gave us the Resurrection, the Lord gave us the Holy Ghost- His very own spirit ! amen.

The Lord gave us Himself and what better way to counteract the evil but with Jesus Christ. Everything above, in and even underneath the earth is subject to His name, every single spirit and creation acknowledges their Creator. They know who He is, man do not and there lies the irony of it all. The Lord’s blood that was shed for mankind at Calvary marked the greatest victory- it rent the veil in two literally and spiritually, God took the keys of hell and death from satan and redeemed every single man born on this earth. Through His sacrifice, we can now come under the blood and claim our salvation, and that offer is available to every single soul.

The question is- will you accept it ?

We were given free will, we were given free rein, we get to choose. It does not really take long before we realize that at the end of the day, there is only two paths to choose from: It is only between right and wrong, evil versus godly. Although the devil seem to confuse us with ‘gray areas’, in actual fact there is none. There is no gray area at all but a trap of ‘undecision’, which only delays our journey to Christ even more, until we become complacent. Complacency is one of the enemy’s best tool to date, it is subtly deceiving and we need to recognize it but only through God's word can we expose that spirit. His light scatters all darkness, the scripture says...and everything that is done in darkness will be made known, see.We know that no sane man would want to be a slave to these demons, we need God's great mercy to stir our hearts unto repentance...true repentance.

For those who have not had any experience with the Lord:
There is a God and it is time to hearken unto Him, it is time to repent and to really think about where you want to be at the end of life's journey. Our soul goes somewhere after we've shed this flesh and deep, down inside I know there is a great desire to be reunited with our Maker.
Friend, we have little time left...soon, no more. We have to make up our minds. We need to humble ourselves and allow God to move in our lives, let Him unshackle all the chains that bind you- all the spirits that try to keep you away from knowing Him. Because the truth is friend, we need Him and there is no salvation besides Jesus Christ.
The scripture says in Matthew 6: 24
"You can not serve two masters, ... you can not serve both God and the god of this world".
And again in Joshua 24: 15 & 21
"15: And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
21: And the people said unto Joshua, "Nay; but we will serve the LORD

It is time to stand up men and women of God ! it is time to forsake our arrogant and unbelieveing ways and repent and turn back to our God, who is the God of restoration, amen.
Remember that Jesus is greater than all the evil put together in the entire universe, He only uses it as a tool to bring out the shine and lustre of His precious diamonds, which are us, amen.
God is greater than your unbelief, nothing can hinder Him from getting to you but you have to open your heart to Him. He gave us free will because God does not want to impose Himself on us- so if we decide to serve Him, it's from the heart...it is genuine.

To all who read Pure Faith:
God bless you all and may we meet at Jesus's feet when we've reached eternity. Shalom to the bride of Christ!

First, let me just say how much I truly love your posts. Granted, I have not read all of them, but of the handful I have read, I am quite amazed.

Secondly, in regards to the post upon which I am commenting, I totally agree. Everything is a stepping stone, and God gives us free will, but that does not mean we should not place ourselves into the hands of temptation. So many people seem to put themselves in spots to be tempted and then act alarmed and blameful when they commit an inequity.

I agree that we should see ourselves as the responsible party. If we don't see ourselves as responsible for the act of committing sin, how in the world are we able to sincerely ask for forgiveness. God is going to know if you merely ask as a repetitious prayer, as if it is just step you must take without thoughts.

Anyway, so, great post! Keep writing.

I agree with you 100%, friend... People underestimate temptation and end up being confident in themselves instead of in Christ.
We actually set ourselves up to sin when we place ourselves as bait,to be tempted.
We need to be able to use God's wisdom and discernment for these things.
Thank you so very much for your wonderful and wise words!
God bless you!
