DOMINION OVER THE SPIRITS OF THE AGE (PART 2) (CONT.)

 

  • High mindedness. This is another level of deviance. When you mix disobedience with pride and stubbornness, you will naturally produce deviance. It is in stages and when it gets to the next level, it advances into rebellion. This is already in operation in the world today, especially deviance to righteous authority.

  • Men will be despisers of those who are good. It is the spirt that makes people to despise those who are righteous. Today, one of the toughest things to find is a true role model.

  • Loving pleasure more than God.

  • Lack of Natural Affection.

  • False Religion. Having a form of godliness but denying the power thereof. Religion is not the issue; Churches are springing up everywhere but where are the fruits?

  • Ever Learning and never being able to come to the knowledge of the truth. It is not enough to keep on heaping knowledge. If you are pilling up knowledge, then, you don’t know the truth, you are empty. It means that you are not wise because the spirit of wisdom is the spirit of truth and the spirit of truth is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of Christ, John 17:17 says, “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth”. If you remove truth from your pursuit of knowledge, it means you lack wisdom.

  • Resistance to truth. People will become enemies of the truth.

  • Corruption. Once you remove the truth, everything will begin to stink, become corrupt and dirty. When you remove truth, you will have corruption. The devil knows this and that is why he smuggled lie into the garden of Eden. He planted the seed of corruption in the garden and man began to battle with it. What we have in this perilous times is the multiplication of that evil seed that the devil planted in Eden. Corruption is perversion, wherever you have perversion, there will be corruption. Corruption is not limited to stealing of money, this is just an aspect of it.

  • Dirty mindedness. Corruption of the garden of the heart produces dirty mindedness. The way some Bible translations put it is ‘reprobate mind’. Dirty mindedness is one of the reasons why pornography is a very big business today. It starts first and foremost in the mind and anything that controls the mind controls the man.

  • Sin burdened Women. Women who are loaded with sin will be all over the place looking for whom to entrap. The book of Proverbs has a lot to say about such women. They move from place to place looking for who to evangelize.

  • The Spirit that makes things warped and twisted. It is the spirit of crookedness. Spirit of a little to the left and a little to the right. It is a very wicked spirit that takes delight in twisting things that are straight forward.
