“Devil Stay in Your Place-Sheol” by Dr.J.

When the enemy messes with your head about your pursuit of Christ instead of your pursuit of the things of this world, you have something for Satan. Tell Satan, 
“That’s why you got expelled from heaven for your pride and desire for more than God. Your vain beauty, your love of your own wisdom caused you to be cast down to Sheol. You became so corrupt and evil that you desired to be higher than God, to make yourself like God. As if! 

Yes, Eve suffered from the lust of the eyes and you were able to deceive her, entice her, and plot against her, but I’ve learned my lesson from her and from you. The veils have been removed from my eyes. I desire God more than fame, wealth, money, a husband, or a promotion. I’m pursuing God. Because of my faithfulness, yes I will be rewarded; but my heart is pure and I want God more than this old word. What would it profit me to gain the things of this world and lose my soul like you? Eternal damnation? No thank you Satan. You’re not even loyal to your own evil minions. I’m good Satan. I’m subject to God. I resist you. Now devil, be gone.” 

Don’t even flirt with temptation. Put your worldly desires in check. I have to check them daily. I say, “Lord keep me rooted in Your Word. Lord keep me connected with Your Spirit. Keep me grounded. The temptation to have all in this world and to be all in this world and to fall back in love with this world again is enticing. Purge me Jesus. Clean me up. Get it out of me. Again. Today.” Don’t let the enemy catch you slipping. Dr.J.

“You Can Have This Old World” by Dr.J.

Exactly what is it about this world that you love so much and for which you are willing to lose your soul? 

Is it the illicit sex which threatens our very earthly existence with incurable diseases and deadly diseases? Is it a man who won’t commit who has multiple partners in the same area code that we choose over God? Or maybe it’s the desire for money, fame, and worldly promotion that we choose over an eternal life with God? Possibly, it’s our lust for the same sex that God has judged so harshly before in two cities etched in the historical crevices of our spirits? Maybe it’s the wars, killing, senseless violence and injustice that cause us to choose the world as our dwelling place? Is it the government or the educational system whereby Satan has strategically set up spirits of oppression and sabotage to annihilate specific people? Clubbing? Parties? Vacationing? Slaving on a job? What is it that you stand to gain here in a dying world?

I don’t know what it is about this world for some of us. I just know that for me, there is nothing or no one here to make me lose my soul.  Wake up people of God. Our God is as much a God of judgment as He is One of love. Truly accept Jesus now before it’s too late. Dr.J.
