Merry day after Christmas it is dear family of saints!!! Because we have Jesus born into life with us (God with us) recognized yesterday in our celebrations, we have the opportunity to have faith in His earthly finished life mission’s work on the cross to forgive us of all of our sins, rescue us from the wages of sin, reconcile us to Him to give us forever inheritance of a seat and His glorious riches to us in His heavenly kingdom coming soon!!!
In addition to that, His Spirit indwells our hearts upon faith in Him to seal us as His forever, giving us the authority over the enemy of this world!!!
The enemy Satan and his demons cannot take over our spirit in life unless we yield them the ability to do so thru our own personal choice of accepting that and rebelling against our Father’s power and authority that is supreme over Satan!!! We are in a spiritual battle being fought in the heavenly places and we can choose what side we want to be on for eternity!!! GLORY TO OUR FATHER BE THAT WE HAVE HIS POWER TO CLAIM OUR LIVES FROM THE POWER OF THE ENEMY WHO WANTS OUR ETERNAL TORMENT!!!
It is not possible for a person’s spirit to indwell another person, for example one might say “this person has the spirit of Jezebel” who was a Bible character mentioned as one who did evil in the eyes of the Lord and worshiped false gods. While a person’s spirit cannot indwell anyone, one person can certainly influence another person in evil ways by their alive presence in their life thru manipulation and control in ways contrary to our Father!!! The control of one person by another is only possible if our own personal choice allows that to happen though!!! We must always seek our Father’s Spirit of Truth – test all spirits for there are false prophets in the world!!! Someone who has lived and died has no power to indwell us nor do they have supernatural power to help us or influence us in any way. That power to help us is only the power of God and “greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world”!!! (1 John 4:4) To the powers of the enemy our Father tells us this: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
I share these things, dear ones, because I know loved ones who are confused in life and having lost family to death, rather than praying to our Father, they pray to their deceased family member. Jesus understands confused and misled hearts and He IS love, but I can’t help but think what a slap to our sweet Father that act of seeking the dead is to He who created us all and holds all life in His hands and longs to love us and help us thru faith in Him with unfailing, unconditional love. He is always there for us as His kids of faith and we can approach His throne of grace with confidence to find mercy in our times of need!!! He has sacrificed so much for us all to have everlasting life in Him thru faith and He wants to be our everything in life!!! BLESS YOU SWEET FATHER!!!
Our Father’s Word tells us that upon death, a person’s memory is forgotten. (Ecclesiastes 9:5) Also Deuteronomy 18:11 mentions those who consult with familiar spirits and necromancers. Familiar spirits are trusted spirits that are thought to be friendly or familiar. However, they are not people, but demons (Leviticus 20:1-6, 27; Isaiah 8:19; Isaiah 29:4). Newcromancers, often called sorcerers, mediums, fortune tellers, tarot card readers, horoscope writers, those who try to communicate with the dead are not part of God’s family Spirit and they are not walking as His children by faith in Christ (Galatians 3:26). We know as our Father’s kids that light has nothing in common with darkness!!! Instead, what is contrary to our Father’s Spirit is of Satan’s family, which includes those who deny Christ. To have anything to do with demonic influencers is to open one’s life up to demonic harassment. Our Father’s Word tells us that there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come over to Father’s saints that have passed from this earth will not be able to and none in hell may cross over from there to heaven. (Luke 16:19-31) Satan does have power in this world to harass God’s people with evil, but our Father has given us overcoming power and authority to stand against him!!! YYYEEESSS!!! LET’S GO FIGHT AND WIN THE ENEMY, FAMILY OF JESUS!!! Thru Christ, we can do all things He calls us to thru He who gives us strength!!! Ruh, ruh, ruh!!! 🙂
Oh, sweet family of Jesus, our Father lives to intercede for us and empower us over the demonic influence of our enemy as Jesus told Peter when Satan wanted to sift him as wheat, “I have prayed for you, that your faith may not fail; and you, when once you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:31-32) Our Father helps us as His kids in our weaknesses:
“…the Spirit of God also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.”
Romans 8:26-27 NASB
It is my prayer that all of us as our Father’s kids keep our heart thoughts captive – in check in Christ as we continue in life after this joyous Christmas celebration with the Spirit of Christmas alive and in control in our each personal hearts. It will be in letting our King reign in our hearts that will bring a truly Happy New Year and everyday full of joy just like Christmas!!! Our Father’s Word tells us His heart for us:
“For it is He who works in us to will and act according to His purpose.”
Oh, our Father has and is always “saving our bacon” so to speak from the enemy of this world!!! YAY!!! LET US WELCOME HIS HOLY SPIRIT POWER AND TRUTH INTO OUR LIVES CONTINUALLY AS THIS SONG SAYS HERE FOR CHRISTMAS EVERYDAY!!! HE IS OUR LIVING HOPE!!!
