DON’T LET WORLDLY NEWS CONTROL YOU
1 John 5:18 18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
Whoever is born of God sins not unto death. If you are born again your spirit is kept from the wicked one Satan. He has no power over the Christians. We belong to Christ Jesus; we have been recreated into a new being and our spirit is sealed by the Holy Spirit.
John 17:9-11 9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
Jesus prayed to the Father because he was going to heaven to take his place with God the Father. He interceded on his people’s behalf; Saying I am no more in the world. Jesus knew the enemy would come against the disciples and try to destroy them. He also knew that the ones that received Him as Lord and savior would also be in danger. This is why we have the whole armor of God for protection.
Ephesians 6:10-12 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Luke 4:10 10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
Job 1:10 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
We have the whole armor; the angels and the hedge God covers us with. In no way should the believer have fear.
2 Timothy 1:7 7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
The spirit of fear is not from God. it is an evil spirit of Satan used to disrupt the God given faith in us. Its purpose is to cause doubt and unbelief. Satan has used this tool of fear to keep people, even Christians, from fulfilling Gods purpose for them on earth. Even churches are afraid to come against Satan and cast demons out of people.
Its time people woke up and take the power and authority God has given us and bind Satan out of their life. Satan has no power over a believer and no permission from God to tread on the believer.
Because your spirit is sealed Satan cannot touch it. The Holy Spirit sealed your spirit when you made Jesus the Lord of your life. He will try to deceive your soul which is made up of your mind, will, and emotion. Satan is prepared to fight for your soul. Are you willing to fight back?
Even though we are not of this world we still live in it and until the rapture or natural death we have to deal with the problems that come against us in this world.
Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy. He wants to steal the truth of God from you, to kill everything good that comes from God, and to destroy anything and anybody who accepts the Word of God. Because we are in the last days and Satan has only a short time left, he will work harder than ever to confuse and steal the word of God from the believers.
We can see in the news of today that people are out of control, they are not thinking of God and their eternal soul, they are ruled and guided by the world. Don’t focus on the evil going on in the world today, remember you are not of this world. Your eternal home is in heaven.
John 17:16 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
This is the word of our Lord. Even now I see the separating of the sheep and the goats that the Word speaks of.
Mathew 25:31-34 31 When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Mathew 25:41 41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
This is at the Judgement of the nations which will commence at the onset of the kingdom age. He shall set his sheep on His right hand refers to the people which would not co operate with the satanic government.
Matthew 7:21-23 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
We access to God only through Christ Jesus and access to Christ only thorough the cross. Our access to the cross is only through a denial of self.
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
To be a follower of Christ you must forsake your own agendas. You must voluntarily choose to take up your cross daily and follow Him. This tells us that in no uncertain terms that the cross of Christ must always be the emphasis of the message.
Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
By totally dying to self and giving up what we were before being born again into Christ Jesus, we are changed instantly into a new creature. We deny our own strength and ability and follow Christ and his ability and strength.
As believers, we must know the word of God and lean not on our own understanding to live righteous before God, without sin, iniquity and without spot or wrinkle in Christ Jesus in today’s natural world.
Proverbs 3:5 5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Ephesians 5:27 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
It is Christ himself who is to present the church and he is to present it to himself; all this was made possible by the cross. Because we have made the choice to follow Him, we have an enemy that really hates us; All because Jesus won and Satan lost, Satan is in a rage. Satan will try everything he can to get you to live for the world and not for Jesus. Whatever tool he has he will use it. Be it family, friends or our own lust for the things of this world.
You are the one with the power and authority, when he tries to use things of your past to win you over, remind him of his future. He does not have any power over the believer, his main tool is deception.
Stay strong, stay in the word, rebuke the world and what it has to offer.
