I read this earlier in the week, so thought I’d share it. It needs no further explanation.
Be blessed as you read. 😊
LIFESTYLE CHANGE by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills
READ: Matthew 12:43-45
When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”
John 8:32, And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
After the Lord has set you free from demons, you need to make practical adjustments, otherwise the demons will return. You need to obey the Word of God practically.
Notice from today’s Scripture that the house was empty , swept and clean. A house, which is not filled with the Word of God, will be filled with demons. I have watched as many go for deliverance sessions and yet never seem to be free. This is because we are ignoring a most basic truth from the Lord.
It is the knowledge of the truth that actually sets us free. Many pastors attempt to use the laying on of hands to accomplish what only the truth can do. However, none of us is wiser than God. We may anoint people with oil a thousand times but that cannot be substituted for the knowledge of truth.
Demons cannot have access to Christians unless we give them a foothold (Ephesians 4:27). Often, the foothold of the devil is not removed and so the demons still have access and keep returning. What is there in your life that allows the devil to keep returning? Perhaps bad company is ruining your life. Perhaps, the alcohol you drink is opening the door to the spirit of death.
Without some practical steps, your deliverance from demons will never be complete. Jesus told the madman of Gadara to go witnessing about what the Lord had done for him (Mark 5:19). His continued deliverance lay in his obedience to this command. What has the Lord asked you to do? Obeying this command will keep you free from demons.
Be blessed as you walk in His word.😇🙏😘
