Hello Spirit Builders and welcome to our blog post.
Does anyone remember that old Gospel song ‘Won’t You Let Him In? ” Well maybe you remember the Country Western tune that says “Somebody’s knocking.” Well that is exactly what’s going on. Someone is knocking on the door of your heart today.
Over a year or so ago, I worked with a small congregation here in Memphis, TN. After fervently praying for clarity of certain situations that prevailed in that particular congregation, God shared this revelation:
“There is a cord, much like the puppeteer’s string, that connects our mind and heart and reproductive organs. The enemy uses people to tug on one so that he can get to the others.”
How many times have we listened to people with their ideas and notions and say to ourselves that we’ll have nothing to do with what they propose? But then we listen long enough and their words get in our mind. If you entertain those accompanying thoughts long enough it starts to turn your heart toward sin and unrighteousness and not long after that we all know what follows.
It works the same from every direction. If you engage in a sexual encounter with someone that you know you should not, a connection is made between the reproductive organs that sends a message of deception to your heart and BINGO! Now you walk around thinking about them…wanting them…craving them. See the connection yet?
Check this out…if you are not a discerning or prayerful person and someone approaches you with this “oh woe is me”… “life is a sad love song”… story and you start to feel sorry for them; the enemy ( and inner-me) will make you think you are doing the right thing by attempting to rescue them…be their knight in shining amour. That’s because they have tricked their way into your heart…which, when the cord is tugged just right…will make you think about them and their plight and cause you to move out on your own will and eventually you’ll find yourself sexual attracted or even in bed with them.
So hopefully by now you get the picture…DON’T BE IGNORANT OF SATAN’S DEVICES… sure sex isn’t the only sin..but with that sin comes deception, lies, hypocrisy, fornication, and so many other works of the flesh.
Understand who you are in this earth. You were created to do…created to see…created to say, so much more than what you’ve experienced so far. There is a leader inside of you…an apostolic wonder the world has yet to see. So don’t let the short lived pleasures of sin” overtake you.
Sin is an illusion sent to trick you and get your mind and heart off of the things God has called you to do. Once you enter the strike zone…the veil will lift and you’ll see “it ain’t what you thought it would be.”
So, only answer that knock when you realize it’s Jesus…standing at the door of your heart wanting to come in and sup today.
