Many of My children do not consider the spirit realm, but choose to live in darkness. It is time to know the truth, for it will set you free. Being aware does not mean being obsessed. My Son knew who He was; therefore, He walked in power and authority over the enemy. He was tempted in all things, yet He did not sin.
Likewise, you must be aware of the enemy's tactics. Who would go to battle without spying out and knowing how the enemy operates? My people perish for lack of knowledge.
When one is completely yielded to Me in every area of their lives, My light shines brightly in and through them. The darkness is obvious. Just like a cluttered room, when lit, exposes the cobwebs, mold, mildew, and piles of trash, so My Spirit illuminates what is clean and what is vile.
Have I not said My Word is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path? My Word is the plumb line for you to navigate this life. I do not change and neither does My Word; therefore, beware of false teachers and lying spirits meant to derail your faith. Keep on the narrow path and I will lead you safely home.
Matthew 12:43-45 The Message (MSG)
43-45 “When a defiling evil spirit is expelled from someone, it drifts along through the desert looking for an oasis, some unsuspecting soul it can bedevil. When it doesn’t find anyone, it says, ‘I’ll go back to my old haunt.’ On return it finds the person spotlessly clean, but vacant. It then runs out and rounds up seven other spirits more evil than itself and they all move in, whooping it up. That person ends up far worse off than if he’d never gotten cleaned up in the first place.
“That’s what this generation is like: You may think you have cleaned out the junk from your lives and gotten ready for God, but you weren’t hospitable to my kingdom message, and now all the devils are moving back in.”
Matthew 24:23-25 The Passion Translation (TPT)
23 “And you will hear reports from some, saying, ‘Look, he has returned,’ ‘The Messiah is over here,’ or ‘The Messiah is over there!’ Don’t believe it. 24 For there will be imposters falsely claiming to be God’s ‘Anointed One,’ and false prophets[a] will arise to perform miracle signs to lead astray, if possible, those God has chosen to be his. 25 Remember this, for I prophesy it will happen!
