One of the prevailing ignorance that is bedeviling mankind is the ignorance that there is an eternal and intense battle for the control of the soul of man.
This eternal battle is between God on the one hand and the devil on the other hand each waging war for the control of our soul. That is to say that many people are ignorant that there is an intense battle between God and Satan who controls our souls.
However, we are the one that decides who control our soul. In other words, we are the one that decides who wins in this battle for the control of our soul.
It is for that reason that so many people who claim to be born again even pastors will find themselves in hell even though they desired and expected to find themselves in heaven.
For that reason, a pertinent question that is begging for our personal answer is this eternal and intense battle for the control of our soul, who wins?
Talking about our soul, Jesus painted the picture of our soul being priceless, saying in Mark 8:36-37 “For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul”? NK JV
To answer the question of who is the actual winner of this intense battle for the control of our souls, we need to look at what Apostle Paul said in Romans 6:16.
In Romans 6:16, Paul made a profound statement saying, “Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves, slaves, to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death or of obedience leading to righteousness? NK JV
Paul equally said something in Romans 8:6-9 where he said, “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. But you are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. NK JV
As said above that we determine who wins in this intense battle for the control of our soul and by what Paul is trying to point out above, he said that to whom we present ourselves, slaves, to obey, we are that one’s slaves whom we obey.
In view of this, Satan seems to be winning this intense battle as he is succeeding in the control of the soul of millions of souls who he will eventually take to hell with him.
To prove that there will be lots of surprises on the last day, Jesus equivocally made a statement in Mathew 22:14 where he said, “For many are called, but few are chosen.” NK JV
I wish to point out one thing, that you have the patience to read this article is an indication that you are mindful about who wins the control of your soul, whether God or Satan?
Many desire that God should be in control of their soul, but directly or indirectly are yielding or presenting themselves as slaves to obey Satan because they are slaves to sin.
Jesus while speaking in John 8:34 answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. NK JV in this segment, therefore, I wish to point out topmost what Satan does to take control of the souls of the majority of people.
The topmost is corrupting your spirit man using $exual pleasures. Has it occurred to you why the devil positioned many daughters of Jezebels and agents of the marine kingdom to entertain you on social media?
What do you think was the reason most of these agents of the marine kingdom are displaying or posing exposing their nakedness or their naked breasts?
The reason is that such action causes men $exual arousal. Once you are $exually aroused, your spirit man gets down if not corrupted.
Do you wonder why some men of God are victims and causualities of their scheme and $exual maneuvers? The point is that once they see that you are a strong Christian or a man of God, they target you to pull you down.
It is for that reason that you see the countless number of pastors or men of God falling like packs of cards as most of these agents of darkness use $exual pleasures to get these men of God.
Once Satan captures the soul of these Christians and men of God, such men of God will now take pleasure in messing up with female members of their church.
Yourself, who is the winner of this intense battle for the control of your soul? Is God the winner, or Satan? That is who are you yielding or presenting your bodies to obey?
Please let this sink into your subconscious mind, there is an eternal and intense battle for the control of your soul. Shalom!
