KEY SCRIPTURE: John 5:14 KJV “Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.”
The Lord Jesus healed an impotent man, who had laid by the pool of Bethesda for as many as thirty-eight years without any deliverance. The Lord met him in the temple and made the following statement to him.” Behold, thou has been made whole, sin no more lest a worse thing come upon you. Sin is the major grounds for demons to enter a person’s life and create havoc. Sin is a willing act of a man that says no to God, but yes to the devils.
Sin does two things in the man.
1 Sin is a rebellion against God.
2 Sin defiles the man who commits it.
When one confesses his sin according to 1 John 1:9, God forgives the sin which is a rebellion and cleanses the sinner from the defilement. When an individual has separated himself from God through rebellion and has been defiled, demons would naturally come to him if he stays long in that condition. Mat 24:28 NET “Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”
Wherever sin is, there will the demons be.
People of occultic associations are made to commit grievous sins, like murder, incest, homosexuality, and many more so their demons would fill them fully. Certain acts like fornication in any form, is an act of worship to Satan. These things go on in satanic temples. No Christian must get himself into sin of any form. Remember the Lord Jesus died because of our sins. (Galatians 1:4) He did this to deliver us from devils. If you go back and live in sin you give yourself freely into the hands of these devils from whom you were set free
Sin does not have dominion over me. I am alive unto God and I live by the power of his spirit. I am a master over devils, and will not allow myself to be controlled by them in anyway. Thank you, Lord Jesus.
Gen 4:7 NET “Is it not true that if you do what is right, you will be fine? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at the door. It desires to dominate you, but you must subdue it.”
Judges 2:13 Net” They abandoned the LORD and worshiped Baal and the Ashtars. The LORD was furious with Israel and handed them over to robbers who plundered them. He turned them over to their enemies who lived around them. They could not withstand their enemies’ attacks”.
