This is the third part of our discussion on the topic “eternal and intense battle for the control of your soul, who wins”?. I hope that you have read parts one and two for a better understanding.
If not, GO HERE to read part one. In this segment, we shall still look at how the devil takes or wins the control of the souls of men/women as a result of their ignorance.
We will learn something from what the apostle Paul said in 2 Corinthians 2:11 which says, “lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices”.
Here, it is obvious that many believers as a result of their ignorance are allowing the devil to take advantage of them through their ignorance of his devices”. It is for that reason that some are doing things ignorantly, not knowing that such are the devices of the devil.
One of such devices that the devil is using these days is innocently presenting to us the opportunity to enjoy $exual pleasures. I wish first to cite one example from the bible.
In the Book of Genesis 39:7-9, Joseph after a time his master’s wife cast her eyes upon Joseph, and she said, Lie with me. But Joseph vehemently refused, saying to his master’s wife, “See here, with me in the house, my master has a concern about nothing; he has put all that he has in my care”.
There is no one greater in this house than I am; nor has he kept anything from me except you, for you are his wife. How then can I do this great evil and sin against God? AMP
The above passage was talking about Joseph, how the devil saw the glorious destiny of Joseph, he innocently presented to Joseph the opportunity to enjoy $exual pleasure with Potiphar’s wife.
Thank God, Joseph was not ignorant of the devices of the devil that he vehemently refused Potiphar’s wife, saying, “how then can I do this great evil and sin against God”? AMP
It is unfortunate that many believers, especially men/women of God, are falling like packs of cards in the hands of the devil. The devil is using the ignorance of the devices of the devil to pull them down or destroy these men/women of God.
What do you think was the reason that you hear lots of negative stories about this or that pastors are engaging in immoral acts with female members of their churches.
Often, the devil sends his female agents and daughters of Jezebel, who pose as faithful members of their churches. These agents and daughters of Jezebel are given the assignments to seduce and sleep with these men of God, thereby capturing their souls for the devil.
Some are equally male agents of the devil, sorcerers, but are posing as pastors, their own assignments are to locate faithful and spiritual sisters in their churches and get them defiled so as to capture their souls for the devil.
For instance, who is the lady that pulled down pastor David Wilson? The last time I watched the lady that the devil used to pull Pastor David Wilson down, why are they not talking about that lady but only Pastor David Wilson.
The reason was that the lady was on a mission, and her mission was accomplished. What I am saying is that you should be careful not to allow the devil to win the battle for the control of your soul using ignorance of the devices of the devil.
To this end, to avoid wallowing in spiritual ignorance, we should be mindful of the pastors that God has positioned to feed us with knowledge and understanding.
For that reason, you should be conscious of men and women with reprobate minds the devil is trying to use to poison your minds against the pastors, that God has set over you to feed you with knowledge and understanding.
Personally, I used to behave like the blind man Jesus healed in John 9. That man told the Jews in John 9:25 saying, “Whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know: that though I was blind, now I see”.
Once the devil succeeds to poison your minds against men of God, he ends up capturing your soul, as the worst crime you commit against your destiny is to join to talk rubbish against any man or woman of God.
Another is to be under sorcerers that turned themselves, into pastors. A similar thing happened in Acts 8:9-12 which says, But there was a certain man, called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great,
To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.” And they heeded him because he had astonished them with his sorceress for a long time. But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized. NK JV
I said this because many sorcerers and necromancers have turned themselves into pastors and are performing lying wonders, while what they are doing is submitting the souls of men and women to the devil.
In summary, let us heed the words of Jesus in John 8:32 where he said, “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Once we are in command of the knowledge and understanding of the truth, we will consciously not allow the devil to take us captive or win the control of our souls through ignorance.
The ball is in your court as you determine who wins the battle or who takes control of your soul. Will you allow God or Satan to win control? Time shall tell. Shalom!
