The Believer’s Consecration Of The Christ Life-Part 5

July 14, 2014


Do you think something is wrong with our nation right now? Absolutely! Do you think something is wrong with the individuals of our nation? Absolutely! The reason this nation is hurt is because the individuals are hurt. Why? Because we have forsaken God, and there are other masters besides God in our lives that have dominion over us. The same way you saw this in the children of Israel…they worshipped other gods…they gave themselves away to other masters. You see God allowed these things to happen because they had been careless in their relationship and their service to Him and therefore they found themselves in captivity, but God allowed it. Primarily God seems to use this world’s system controlled by Satan, our flesh (self), and the Devil and his demons to crowd us back to Christ. You see, we cannot be indwelt by demons, but God lets them work in such a way in proximity to us because everything is a servant of God. Sometimes we are so stiff-necked that we simply will not listen, and God allows these things to happen. The Old Testament life and times of the children of Israel, gives us a picture of how God operates…even in 2014, in the lives of the Christian today.
