🔥Sin begins as a thought in our mind. Satan shoots his fiery arrows and flaming spears into our mind and they become an evil thought. Once the thought is conceived and entertained in the mind it gives birth to the lust to commit the sin, and then comes the actual committing of the sin. Once we have committed the sin it brings forth spiritual and eventual physical death, and this is the scheme of the enemy. The mind is a battlefield where satan tries to dominate his target. Lust is a very powerful influence of which we will fall captive to unless we have taken heed to the warnings of Jesus, becoming as wise as a serpent ourselves. He did not leave us ignorant to satan’s devices for this very reason.
🔥The enemy seeks nothing less than our ultimate destruction and he will go to every length permissible to kill us from within to without. This is a very real war we are in and we have weapons of warfare at our disposal, in fact we have the entire arsenal of heaven for our advantage: we only need to call upon the Name Of The LORD Jesus Christ, to be strong in Him and the power of His might, and to always remain in His Word every day, constant in prayer! Through continual prayer, praise, and worship to The LORD we defeat satan without us ever even having to go to battle against the enemy, for the battle is not ours, the battle belongs to The LORD.
🔥The Word says that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of GOD is eternal life through Christ. Every flaming arrow of sinful lustful thought must be cut out at the root and not just broken off, or the head of the snake will remain embedded and those wicked roots grow deep into our soul where it spreads its deadly infection. We must then allow Jesus to heal our wounds. Do not entertain any thought of sin of any kind, for if you even wonder upon it you’ve already committed the sin in your heart. We are baited by our own evil desire. Then the soil of your garden becomes cultivated with evil seeds and wicked weeds that spoil the very nature of a person, leading them into bondage and captivity of the enemy. This is the goal. Steal, kill, and destroy… divide, conquer, and devour.
🔥As soon as you sense those fiery darts coming your way you will hear them; if they enter into your mind, IMMEDIATELY they need to be cast down and taken captive to the obedience of Christ this having a readiness to avenge ALL disobedience until our obedience is fulfilled. The weapons of our warfare are MIGHTY through GOD for the pulling down of strongholds that satan casts into our soul with intention to bind us down so that we fall into temptation and sin against The LORD.
🔥If we act on the impulse of the temptation it leads only to death, and we actually allow satan legal rights to come before the throne of GOD as the accuser of the Brethren to petition a request to be able to do certain things to us. This is where we need to be keen in knowing his schemes! We must be geared up for war with the full armor of GOD on at all times and be quick in season and out of season, because that devil is a prowling lion seeking to devour us at any moment and he never sleeps. He is always on the hunt looking for the kill. If we allow satan rights to come into our lives by giving in to sin… best believe that old serpent is going to do the maximum totality of damage that he can. Don’t give the enemy an inch, or he will be your ruler!

📯”Blessed (happy, to be envied) is the man who is patient under trial and stands up under temptation, for when he has stood the test and been approved, he will receive [the victor’s] crown of life which God has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted from God; for God is incapable of being tempted by [what is] evil and He Himself tempts no one. But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions). Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.”📯James 1:12-15📯
