2/17/10 The Devil Doors

In order for any of us to have a victorious life ... and operate in God's Kingdom ... that He gave to us to "dominate"...

We must learn to focus our God given ... spiritual vision ... locate our enemy ... bind him ... and claim back our territory.

God's Word ... commands ... that we come to understand ... and move onto the battlefield of our minds...

and begin to reclaim all the mental powers ... that the devil have stolen from us.

Let's understand this fact ... it is the plan of the devil ... to stop every believer in Jesus ...

from moving out in the 'power" and "victory' He has given us.

So we must become knowledgeable of Satan's tactics

strategies ... and his characteristics to become what each of us truly desire in Christ.

Well folks ... just want to let you know today ... that it is my intent ... to lead you starting now ...

into the devil's territory ... to invade his stronghold

so we can begin to take back the spoil ... that is rightfully ours.

Are you ready?

Let's Pray (a protection prayer for our hears and hearts)

Demons ... Comes Through Open Doors ... by legal rights!

The Apostle Paul tells us ... that we are the determining factor in whether the devil can operate in our life or not.

Ephesians 4:27 (amplified version) - "Leave no room or foothold for the devil ...give no opportunity to him".

When we allow openings in our spiritual life ...

the devil feels he has the right to take advantage of us in those specific territories.

If we keep the doors closed ... he can't do what he would like to do.

The Bible introduces us to the "open door" principle in Genesis 4:7 ... when God was talking with Cain:

"If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? And if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the DOOR".

God told Cain ... that Satan was crouched at his doorway ... waiting to leap into his life.

Cain had a choice ... and he chose to open the "DOOR" ... Satan led him to murder his brother Abel.

Sin is progressive ... it grows from something small.

One thing always lead to another ... until we find ourselves in big trouble.

And it is for this reason ... that we must learn to close"doors" ... and keep them closed ...

before they develop into something harmful.

What Are the Devil's Doors?

Lineage
(Ancestry, family tree heredity)

Exodus 20:4-5
"No carved gods of any size, shape, or form of anything whatever, whether of things that fly or walk or swim. Don't bow down to them and don't serve them because I am God, your God, and I'm a most jealous God, punishing the children for any sins their parents pass on to them to the third, and yes, even to the fourth generation of those who hate me".

Crisis

An emotional or physical crisis ... can leave "DOORS" open ... that we must go back and close ... so that the enemy will not continue to hassle us in that part of our life.

(Psalm 40:12)- "For troubles without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart fails within me".

(Psalm 25:17)- "The troubles of my heart have multiplied; free me from my anguish".

Ignorance

The Apostle Paul warns us many times in the epistles ... "Not to be Ignorant" concerning the Word of God.

Romans 10:3- "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God".

2Corinthians 2:11 - "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices".

I Will Begin Today... to Shut the Door!

James 4:7-10 (The Message)

"So let God work his will in you. Yell aloud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he'll be there in no time.

Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over.

Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it's the only way you'll get on your feet".
