KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 27:47 KJV” Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.”
From our key scriptures, the Lord Jesus cried unto the Lord, and the people which stood by said He was calling Elijah. These people did not understand what Jesus said, neither did they even hear clearly what He said. How wrong He would have been, if He had acted on what they said? How many people have destroyed their lives, by acting on the wrong comments of others? These people went on to say the following in verse 49 ” The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.” These people were just out of touch with everything Jesus said. The Lord did not give any attention to what they said.
Dear one be careful about what those who hate you say. There is an Akan proverb that says “the man who hates you dance with a twisted back”. When Nehemiah gathered the Jews to build the broken walls of Jerusalem, the enemies of the Jews said the following,
“Now Tobiah the Ammonite was by him, and he said, even that which they build, if a fox go up, he shall even break down their stone wall”. Nehemiah 4:3. There is another enemy that speaks daily and moment by moment to everyone. This person is the devil, or his demons. He is called the Prince of the power of the air. (Eph 2:2)
This personality constantly suggests wrong thoughts, and imaginations in the minds of all men, especially Christians. He is a liar and he comes to kill and destroy. One way to know that Satan or his angels are talking to you, is when these words create fear. Most words that make men panic, no matter how real it may be is from the devil and it is technically a lie. To overcome, you must do as Jesus did. Give no thought or attention to it. You may refute it with the truth of God. The Lord was victorious. You will likewise be victorious and you would have a meaningful life.
THOUGHT: SATAN IS POWERLESS, IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE HIS LIES.
John 8:44 KJV “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
Ephesians 4:27 KJV “Neither give place to the devil.”
