Thought for the Day

"It's complicated, because many Christians don't believe they have to resist the devil. They believe that the devil doesn't pose any real or immediate threat to them. They dabble with the devil by allowing him open doors by default. Since they don't take the devil seriously, they think that the devil doesn't take them seriously. Huge mistake.

Luke 22:1-3 "Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover: V2 And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him (Jesus); for they feared the people. V3 Then entered satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve."  There is significance in this statement. Just as the Holy Spirit indwells the believer, satan can indwell the unbeliever. They have no protection against the wicked one. Until you are born again, you have no power or authority over satan and his cohorts."
