Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”
There is no such thing as a spiritual void. If any area of your life is not under the blood and Gods sovereignty, then it becomes a magnet for the enemy. Many are walking in mixture pretending to have one foot in the world and one foot in the Kingdom only to find themselves covered in the “dust realm”. We need to be prepared for what’s coming. The image of the Son must be formed within each of us and our identity in Him must be recaptured by a steady diet of changing our minds (repentance). If your goal is anything other than this, then you are likely to be useless in the day of battle. There is a dramatic upsurge in spiritual activity occurring in the world and the Kingdom simultaneously. The subversion of the enemy that is aimed at the heart of many believers is seduction. This occurs in key areas that involve our relationships with people, our need for approval, our bodily needs and appetites as well as how we are perceived and accepted by friends, family, the church and the world. The foundation upon which these things gain a foothold in our lives relates to the original sin which is ungoverned desire that is not under the Holy Spirits control. In any area that you have an ungoverned desire you have an entry point for the enemy. A governed desire is anything that I have willingly surrendered to the Holy Spirits control. An area I have yet to surrender gives the enemy certain “legal rights” to operate. There is a battle taking place in our souls that does not relate to the gift of Salvation. It is all about our inheritance here and now and our place and reward in the Kingdom. Only those who “Overcome” the world will move in divine authority and be seated with Him as His “chosen” companion for all eternity. What’s being offered by the enemy is what He always offers, “instant gratification” that is always based on a lie (did God really say?). The enemy of our faith loves to “trade”. It’s always “Let’s Make a Deal”, “Ill trade you something of temporary value for something of eternal value”. A natural desire met; a birthright traded.
Revelation 3:21 “To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.”
