TOPIC: Keeping Satanic Property (Monday, 19th March 2018)

FIRE SCRIPTURE: John 14:28-31

MEMORY VERSE:
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.”Hebrews 12:1

The MESSAGE:

The property of the enemy in the life of many believers has opened door for the enemy to attack them. Many of them have suffered perpetual attacks for keeping the property of the enemy, still they refuse to drop it for the owner. When the enemy has something in you, he comes in to harass you at will and prevails. In this case, you will continually find yourself being abused, ignored, ridiculed, degraded and vulnerable to all kinds of attack. It will interest you to know that the ordeal, which Jesus faced in the three great temptations by satan, recorded in the Gospel, surely represented only one incident with this remark: “And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season” (Luke 4:13). There could scarcely have been a more favourable moment for pressure than when Jesus was confronted with the final issues of His life: the betrayal by Judas, the frustration of human hopes, the disappointment of apparent failure, the rejection by His people, the agony of death. Taken together, these would make Him especially susceptible to suggestion or temptation. Moreover, on the final night before His trial and execution, the Saviour recognised in the events of that night and the following day the unwelcome “coming” of the “prince of this world” into His life to tempt Him and to test His resolve in serving the will of His Father.

You cannot stop the devil from coming to you because he “walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). However, you can stop him from winning the war against you. One sure way you can do this is to ensure that when he comes, he would not find anything in you. The devil came to Moses and found anger. He came to Samson and found sexual looseness. He came to Gehazi and found greed. Now beloved, when the enemy comes to check on you, are you sure he would not find something sinful in you? Have you dealt with the stubbornness and rebellion in your life? What about that sexual looseness? What about the strife, envy, malice and all those works of the flesh? All these are the properties of the enemy. They are not supposed to be found in you. Hebrews 12:1 says, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” If you let them go by surrendering your life to Jesus, you will become victorious, and the enemy will no longer be able to harass you. Rather, he will be afraid of you.
