BE TRULY ROOTED

You can overcome the attacks of the devil if you can simply obey God’s Word. Before taking on the devil, be sure of your salvation because the salvation of many today is questionable. Many are pretenders and have really never answered the altar call for salvation at any time. At the time they should be answering the altar call of Calvary, they are already ushers, Sunday school teachers or even pastors. This is one reason we must be very careful before bringing an individual into the work force particularly in new parishes where they need workers. Ensure such an individual is genuinely saved and not just that he or she is zealous and regularly attends church programmes.

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.“
2 Corinthians 5:17
How do you know that you are truly saved? It is by assessing the change your salvation has brought to your life. Nebuchadnezzar was negatively born-again. How? When he went to bed he was a king but the following morning he had turned into an animal (Daniel 4: 20-33). If you say you are born-again and you are still doing the evil things that you used to do, it shows you are not born-again. When I was saved, we were taught about salvation, sanctification, baptism in the Holy Spirit etc. We were rooted in the Word. But today, there are all kinds of teachers who play down these doctrines and only emphasise salvation and water baptism. That is why you see people who speak in tongues yet they go and fornicate; people who indulge in alcohol and yet claim to be in God’s service. Let us get back to the basics!

In addition, to overcome Satan’s attacks, pray without ceasing. Remember that Satan and his demons are fallen angels who never tire, rest or sleep. Ask that the Lord Jesus who prayed for Peter should also pray for you. No matter how holy or careful you are, if God does not keep you, you will surely fall. We are kept by the power God.

Memorise:
Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.
Colossians 2:7

Read:
Hebrews 6:1-2

Bible in one year:
Psalm 143-145

Prayer point:
Father, grant me grace to be rooted and grounded in the love of Christ.

CAN SATAN RIGHTLY ACCUSE YOU?

CAN SATAN RIGHTLY ACCUSE YOU?

Besides discouragement, another weapon Satan uses often against believers is their weaknesses. He simply studies an individual for a period of time and not long after, he identifies the fellow’s weakness and capitalizes on it. Take for instance Peter. Satan discovered that Peter is a cowardly person-lacking in...More

What message do the sects bring?

Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.

Matthew 23:10; 1 Timothy 2:5-6
