Turn on the Light

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:5-7 NIV)

You cannot live a life that looks like the world and live a life that is glorifying to God at the same time! When you listen to bad music, watch scary movies or read books that contain things of darkness you are feeding your spirit things of the devil!! This is very dangerous!! The word of God says we are to have no fellowship with darkness!!! When we tolerate these things its just like saying, "It's ok Satan, you can come on in to my home and my life." It opens up doors to demonic activity and oppression!! 

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12 NIV)

You might think that this is silly and extremely far fetched, but I am here to tell you that it is NOT!! You might even say that these things do not affect you!! But that us not true!!! Whatever you feed your spirit is what will come out!!!! How can you claim to live a spirit filled life and say that the Holy Spirit told you this or that, when you are constantly indulging in things that are obviously of the devil??? ! The Word says that this is real!!!! It is not something to play around with! If you ever have to question something that you are doing, just ask yourself, "would Jesus be watching/reading/listening to this?" If the answer is no, then get rid of it!!! 

to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ (Acts 26:18 NIV)

Now for the good part... If you have allowed any kind of darkness to enter in to your life there is still hope for you!!! There is repentance and there is deliverance!!!! Stop living in denial and ask God to open your eyes and reveal to you the things that you need to get rid of in your life!! Cast them down and let them go and live a life free of darkness!!!  

This devotion was written from the heart of Maggi Sellers. I know it seems a little harsh, but it was in my spirit! Christians need to know this!! I look forward to your comments!!
