Things you need to know about Dedication Cont’d
5. The spirit that guides you will determine the nature of your exploits here on earth cont’d.
The devil is ready to give you the whole world in exchange for your soul. There are people who are ready to sell their soul to Lucifer in order to collect an evil seal. May that not be your portion in the name of Jesus. When the devil took Jesus to a very high mountain to show him the kingdom of the world and all the glory of them during the temptation and requested for Jesus’ worship, Jesus said, “Get thee hence, satan: for it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shall thou serve.” In other words, “my worship is not for sale, I will not worship you”. May you not bow to any nonsense in the name of Jesus. In the Garden of Eden when man collected the seal of the snake, he acquired a diseased perception of reality incapable of making wise decisions and he began to worship things that he was supposed to lord over. That was the beginning of idolatry. Idolatry is the greatest problem of man and God still hates and punishes it. Those who don’t understand the nature of God may say but God is love, yes, God is love. Though God is merciful, he is also truth. The mercy side of God will overlook your iniquities while the truth side of God will judge and punish sin. It is unfortunate that many people have presented grace as if it is a licence to live anyhow. Grace is not and will never be a licence to commit sin. Grace is the supernatural empowerment to say No. Receive that supernatural empowerment in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. No matter how enticing, anything the devil is involved in will not end well regardless of how beautiful it looks. There is a spirit called the spirit of the world that is searching frantically for people to use. People are carrying different types of seal and they want to be heard and unfortunately some people are listening to them. You contract the seal that you are connected to. You are connected to the greatest altar in the whole universe; the altar of Jehovah the living God. You are connected to the altar of Jesus Christ on the mount of Calvary. That is the greatest altar. After going to this altar don’t ever bow to lesser altars. That will be tantamount to crucifying Jesus the second time. You can tell where someone will end by discerning the seal the person is carrying. May you not follow anyone carrying an evil seal. Dedication is very critical, it talks about initiation.
6. There is the spirit of God the Holy Spirit as well as the spirit of the world.
Quite a number of people are carrying the spirit of the world and they will do exploits in the world but guess where they will end? Eph. 2:2, “Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.” It is this spirit that makes people twist the Bible. 2 Cor. 4:3-4, “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost; in whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel should shine unto them.”
7. The spirit that guides you in life is the spirit that will determine where you will spend eternity.
Everyone will end up in the home of their owner. Traditional religious worshippers don’t leave you in doubt as to who they are. Every work of art has a spirit and every music you listen to has a seal. If it is not given by the Holy Spirit, then, it is given by another spirit. That is why a child of God must be very careful. The environment you create is what determines the kind of spirit that will control you.
It is not difficult to collect an evil seal.
