Thought for the Day

"For those who think life some kind of game and they want to dabble with the spirit world on their own terms, without understanding or abiding by sound truths from the Word of God, here's a story from the scriptures that is quite revealing. Acts 19:11-16 "And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul: V12 So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. V13 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. V14 And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. V15 And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? V16 And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so they fled out of the house naked and wounded."

 This event took place 23 years after Jesus ascended into heaven. This is no funny matter. There are many people that think they can cast out demonic forces because they speak the name of Jesus. But to speak the name of Jesus without the indwelling Holy Spirit, discipline, empowerment and authority, has no efficacy against the wicked one.
