Sometimes the devil allows people to live a life free of trouble because he doesn’t want them turning to God. Their sin is like a jail cell, except it is all nice and comfy and there doesn’t seem to be any reason to leave. The door’s wide open. Till one day, time runs out, and the cell door slams shut, and suddenly it’s too late.
Don’t let this be you. Don’t wait until it is too late and the door slams shut on you. One must realize that the door is open, and all one has to do is to simply step through it. THE DOOR IS OPEN! THE WAY IS NARROW BUT IT IS TRUE AND JUST. Step through that door and onto the straight and narrow path towards King Jesus, and you shall be blessed beyond anything you can imagine.
The devil may indeed do this to people, but it is GOD WHO IS GREATER! Is it not written that greater is He Who is in you than he that is in the world? That scripture references that Jesus within us is greater than satan, the god of this world. He has defeated him! Satan has already lost! He thought he was killing Jesus that day upon Golgotha. Little did he know that Jesus was dying for all of the sins of mankind and that He became sin, Himself, holding our sin, dying there bearing the weight of our iniquity and abominations. Satan had NO IDEA what God was doing!!!! He was so pissed when he found out!
When Jesus finally gave up The Ghost, He descended into the lower chambers of the earth to take the keys of death and hell from satan, then into the bowels of Sheol to gather the Saints of old up into the boundaries of the third Heaven. During this time, every principality of satan, every fallen angel and every demon, they ALL instantly knew what had just happened! Jesus Christ: King of Kings and Lord of Lords, called them all unto Him so that they could all see Bible prophecy had been fulfilled and that upon His Name: EVERY KNEE HAD TO BOW AND EVERY TONGUE HAD TO CONFESS HIM AS LORD! They all had to recognize Him as GOD and King, and bowed to Him as King and LORD, Messiah and Saviour of all the world. This all happened during the three days Jesus was in the tomb. He left His body to do these things. Then, He ascended into Heaven with all of the Saints of old and brought them there, to sit next to The Great I AM, eternally. Moses, Elijah, Enoch, Isaac, Jacob, Daniel, David, Elisha, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Jonah…all of them.
So in conclusion, when you come to salvation through Jesus Christ, you not only get eternal life and get to go to Heaven. No, the rewards are indeed much greater! You get to unharness the Power of God within you! Miracles begin to happen! You are immediately changed, given a new heart and a new spirit! Then when you become baptized by the Holy Ghost, as time and experience flows forward, it is possible to manifest all of the gifts of the Spirit, which are as follows:
Word of wisdom, Word of knowledge, Faith, Gift of healing, Working of miracles, Prophecy, Discerning of spirits, Divers kinds of tongues, Interpretation of tongues.
No man can say that Jesus Christ is Lord but by the Holy Ghost. There are diversities of gifts, but they are all of the same Spirit. Just like as Christians, we are all members of one body. We have different functions and different assignments within the Body of Christ. So too do the gifts of the Holy Ghost function. One person may manifest all 9 gifts of the Holy Ghost, but when we are baptized in the Holy Ghost we are all given 1 gift, and this is from GOD for our use in this world and for the glory of His eternal Kingdom. The gifts of the Holy Ghost are spoken of in 1 Corinthians 12.
I as of thee to search out this scripture, and to read about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and pray to Father GOD: asking Him to reveal all truth pertaining to the power and manifestation of His Holy Spirit! Glory be to GOD for His awesome and mighty power! For without Him, we can do nothing at all.
