“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.” Ps. 119:130 (KJV) “If we do not what-is-the-holy-spirit2-740x405consult the Guidebook at every step, inquiring, Is this the way of the Lord? our words and acts will be tainted by selfishness. We shall forget God, and walk in paths that He has not chosen for us.” (E.G. White, My Light) Inviting Satan into our life at any level only causes us to plunge deeper and deeper into a place we eventually become comfortable with.

And if our sins are “not entirely eradicated,” they will continue to multiply and grow until death occurs. Remember when we give Satan permission to enter our life, he has the legitimate right to influence and harass us until we cave in and give him total access. My friends, God will not force us to Choose Him over Satan or overrule a person’s free will if we feel it is not necessary to be protected with the armor of the righteousness of Christ.

Being unprotected only gives Satan a legal claim to our mind and body because by our choice we have allowed Satanimages10 to be our master, and not God.  That is why it is important to know who we are in Christ. John 1:12 (KJV) says “but to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” who “has rescued us and has drawn us to Himself from the dominion of darkness.

And has [also] transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption [because of His sacrifice, resulting in] the forgiveness of our sins [and the cancellation of sins’ penalty]. He is the exact living image [the essential manifestation] of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible], the firstborn [the preeminent one, the sovereign, and the originator] of all creation.” Col. 1:13-15 (AMP)

My friends, that is why such a price was paid for you and I at Calvary by “the originator of all creation,” Jesus Christ. And the plan of redemption tells us He will reach as far into the abyss to rescue us from the forces of evil. But, to be rescued my friends, we are saying we surrender our all to the one who gave it all for our Salvation.

“Now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ 6082_pSQHZk3vappears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.” 1 John 3:2 (KJV) The question we must now ask ourselves, how far are we from being like Christ?

Remember, love, humility, and purity, can only behold love humility and purity so that when someone sees the light of Christ shinning through us they will “marvel and take knowledge, “that we have been with Christ” the “originator of all creation.”

This is possible, “Because [we have] put off our old self, which belongs to our former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and [now we have been] renewed in the spirit of our minds, and [have] put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” Eph. 4:22-24 (ESV) My friends, if we are not willing to give Christ our all today, the saddest words we will soon hear from the Originator of all Creation will be “I DO NOT KNOW YOU.”
