The way Satan controls Christians

 

Thanks for the video! Here is the text!

praise jesus everyone, i tried to make

this similar message earlier today, but

i just didn't have enough signal to do

It,

so i thought i would take a few minutes

here to

talk about the same subject, that i was

going to speak about this morning,

which is in regards to how satan

controls christians and

how it is similar to an abusive

manipulative relationship.

See if you ever have been in a

relationship with someone, boyfriend,

girlfriend, fiance marriage,

where you had a spouse who controlled

You,

this will make sense to you and

a lot of times

a girl has a boyfriend, that she wants to

break up with and

she can't, she feels stuck

and the reason for that is because the

boyfriend threatens her

or the husband threatens that wife

and the boyfriend will say, if you leave

me, i'll commit suicide or if you leave

me,

 

then i will take all the things, that you

have. He makes threats basically against

his girlfriend

and so because he's abusive

and because she fears him, she doesn't

break up with him. Now everyone else in

her family

can tell her plainly: you have to just

leave that man!

But she feels stuck,

so why does she feel stuck? She feels

stuck because she fears her boyfriend

and because she fears him,

even though he's abusive and hateful and

manipulative,

even though

he isn't good for her emotions or her

Life, she stays with him through it all

thinking that maybe one day things will

get better

or i just want to keep the peace. So

because she wants to keep the peace with

this boyfriend on and on and on, the

manipulation

goes and she's constantly abused.

So why am i speaking about this?

Because satan does the exact same thing

with christians.

Many christians say they follow jesus

and to an extent they do,

but they fear satan, they fear what satan

will do, if they fully dedicate

themselves to Jesus Christ. I've seen

this

all the time since i've started to

follow Jesus. People just can't count the

cost,

because they know, if they fully commit

to Jesus Christ,

satan will just be destroying their life,

he will be destroying their marriage,

their children will turn against them,

they know that their workplace will just

be a wreck, their boss will be upset,

they'll lose probably everything they

have and

satan runs off of this fear, he controls

People,

because

they fear the devil. Now Jesus talks

about how to

bind the strong man and cast him out,

plunder his house,

spiritually this is

how you defeat satan.

First you have to count the cost,

there's no way you're going to defeat

Satan, if you haven't counted the cost

and many christians have never counted

the cost of discipleship, they say, they

love Jesus, but they never will have the

backbone to stand up for the truth,

because they fear,

what satan will do to them, they fear the

repercussions of standing up for their

faith and because they fear satan so

much,

they can't count that cost and they want

to keep the peace with the devil.

A lot of people are in this boat, they

are married to satan but they're trying

to enter into the marriage supper of the

lamb, but obviously you can't be married

to Jesus Christ and to satan at the same

time.

We know throughout the scripture, we have

to choose who we serve, you can't serve

two masters,

but the problem is: a lot of christians

have no backbone, they haven't counted

the cost.

You have to set it in your heart no

matter what happens,

that you will go with Jesus whether you

live or die

and if you set it in your heart, that no

matter what happens, even if people turn

against you, you lose your spouse, you

lose your children, you lose your job,

if you said it in your heart, that no

matter what you're gonna go with Jesus,

then the devil will be cast out! You will

be able to say: away from me devil!

and you'll be able to say: i'm gonna

follow the Lord Jesus with all my heart

and you'll be able to cast out those

demons!

But until you do that, until you have said in

your heart that you will not be moved or

manipulated or controlled by anything, no

matter what happens to you,

the devil will still have control over

you and your life,

because you fear the devil, you can't

fear two masters, you can't fear satan

and fear Jehovah God, you cannot fear

Jesus Christ and the satanic empire,

you have to be willing to take up your

cross

and become a true disciple!

Most christians don't know what it means

to carry their cross, they think that

they can live for satan, be in this

unholy marriage with the devil,

connected to

the world

and somehow have a redeemer in Jesus

Christ and he will save them from their

sins in the end. That's not how it works!

Jesus said: whoever of you does not

forsake all that he has, cannot be my

disciple!

So

you have to forsake your relationship

with satan and very few christians have

done this. They say Jesus, Jesus, Jesus,

bible, bible, and they love to quote the

Bible, they love talking about religion,

but they can't cast out a demon, not from

their own life, not from their own mind,

not from their own house,

not from their own family,

and that is because they are still

spiritually married to the satanic

Empire. They're still married to satan,

they fear satan, they fear the people,

that have satan working in them, because

all hell will come against you to test

You,

when you truly put your faith in Jesus.

This happens to all of us:

anyone who chooses to follow Jesus for

real, will be tested!

And these tests will happen in waves,

they'll happen throughout our journey

with the Lord.

One example of this: When i first was

coming out of church,

this was 10, 11 years ago,

Boy, people started coming against me, i

started having

people making you know threats against

me, not against

 

not to lay hands on me,

but their threats were more

that i won't have any money, they're not

going to provide for me, they're not

going to help me with my house or with

my bills,

it was anything to be able to destroy me

financially to scare me into their

system of following the way of church

and dead religion.

And satan used that to try to manipulate

me and my wife to stay within the box of

dead religion,

but when i realized that was happening, i

just continued to pray and i said: Lord

give me the way out of this!

And Jesus gave me the way out of it, but

it was still difficult, people came to

my wife's work and threatened her, they

came to my work

or they were sending emails,

they were trying to make us fail at

whatever job we did, trying to undermine

our livelihood, so wherever we went,

wherever we tried to have success in

life, people were trying to undermine

that,

but you know: it says in the scripture

that no weapon formed against us will

Prosper, if we're with the Lord

and i counted the cost, what it meant to

follow Jesus with my life,

what would it mean, if my wife chose not

to go with me, what would happen all my

friends turned on me, i counted those

costs and i said: Lord i want to follow

You, no matter, what and when i said it in

my heart, that no matter what i would go

with Jesus,

then i was able to overcome satan, that

was binding the strong man as Jesus says

in the scriptures. And then we can

plunder his house,

we can destroy the works of satan, we can

take back the things, that satan stole

from us spiritually and stand to our

feet on the rock of our salvation Jesus

christ

and start proclaiming the truth. Then the

evil empire falls,

we start to punch holes through that

demonic wall and people start to see the

light of Jesus Christ, people start to

wake up to the truth of God,

but most christians are frail,

they haven't counted the cost, they're

weak, they are

having a pity party, because they don't

Know, what's going on,

they are always crying to God: why can't

i overcome my sins? why can't i have

success? why am i always a failure? And

God takes no pleasure

in Christians, who are always whining and

always complaining, like the nation of

Israe, who just griped against God for

40 years, most of them he destroyed in

the wilderness,

God takes no pleasure

in backsliding Christians, in weak

selfish christians

and christians who have no power to

stand up and give God glory.

But if you want to have

power and authority with Jesus Christ in

your spiritual walk, you have to first

count the cost, count the cost what it

means to lose everything,

count the cost, what it means to really

go with Jesus Christ as a disciple, no

matter what.

And then Jesus will give you control

over your own self, self-control

and that is the beginning of being able

to conquer the demons, that are in your

life, casting them out of your mind,

taking captive every single thought, if

you know it's evil, you rebuke it, you

rebuke satan

and you tell him off, because you're a

child of God and he has no control over

you or your life. But if you fear satan,

if you fear satan's agents, whether

they're in your workplace or in your own

family, then satan can control you even

if you think that you are a christian.

satan is very smart, he's smarter than

any of us, he knows, how to manipulate you,

even if you think you're a christian, he

knows, how to manipulate you and destroy

you, unless you have counted the cost to

go with Jesus. So i encourage you: take up

your cross daily, deny yourself,

count the cost of what it means to

follow the Lord

and then know, that he will make the way

for you!

Jesus promises to lead us and to guide

us, if we will trust him

and you need to glorify him in your life,

always be singing his praises,

always be loving him with all your heart,

don't be defeated by the devil,

constantly get back up, stand to your

feet on the rock of your salvation.

If you are constantly praising the Lord

like Paul and Silas were even in prison,

then God is glorified, he will give you

power to overcome,

but when you're always moping around and

defeated and

acting like that, you become selfish and

the devil feeds off of

depression and feeling selfish and

self-pity,

these are things, the devil loves,

but if you are with Jesus, you will

glorify him, you will sing his praises

day and night, you will be praying and

loving him, you'll be loving others

as yourself and when you do this, God is

well glorified and he will give you more

of his Holy Spirit to teach you, to lead

you and to carry you through the

wilderness in those dry times!

So i encourage you to fight through, cast

out the demons that are in your life,

but make sure, that you truly have

counted the cost!

may the grace of Jesus be with you
