1 Peter 5:8 (KJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour
A Christian couple couldn’t have children after over ten years of marriage. This greatly troubled them because the doctors didn’t seem to find anything wrong with either of them.
When a servant of God who manifested great grace in the gifts of the Holy Ghost came to minister in their church, they told him about their ordeal. Immediately, the man of God knew by word of knowledge that there was something in their house that was an access point for the demons afflicting their home. After much questioning, it was discovered that they had a sculpture of Buddha in one of their living rooms. The servant of God asked them to get rid of the sculpture and any other sculptures or artworks related to idol worship. They were a little reluctant to do this because these artworks cost them quite a lot, but after the man of God explained to them how those items were used as demonic access points against them, they were ready to get rid of the items. Months after getting rid of the sculpture and paintings, the wife conceived for the first time ever.
We have seen previously that religions in the world are very particular about the posture of worship and modes of dressing. It doesn’t end there, religions in the world are also very particular about symbols, signs, and architecture. This is not the case for the believer in Christ. In reality, the Christian faith has no symbol. There is nowhere in the Bible where a symbol was assigned to our faith. The cross is considered a universal symbol for Christianity today because the world needed a symbol to identify Christianity among other religions.
When a believer keeps items that carry symbols of other religions and sects, whether he knows it or not, he may be giving certain spirits undue access into his life. The spirit realm is very legalistic, and spirits follow items dedicated to them.
After accepting the Lord Jesus, a new believer should get rid of all items related to any religion he practiced in the past. There is a reason the new believers in Acts 19:19 brought out their sorcery books and burned them even though they were very expensive books.
Go into today remembering that as a believer, you must be sober and vigilant. Add to your faith knowledge, and don’t suffer unduly because of ignorance.
Prayer: Dear Lord, heighten my discernment and help me walk wisely in this world. Amen.
