“Truth for Truckers” *8.8. 2016* “Delivered from the power of darkness 2”
“Who has delivered us from the power of darkness and translated us into the Kingdom of His Dear Son.” (Colossians 1:13). Today, after over thirty-five years of being translated into the Kingdom of God, a number of Truths arise from my experience in both Kingdoms: First of all, no one is completely possessed by the Devil in one moment of time. Possession is gradual. In the lives of Christians, who cannot be possessed because the Holy Spirit resides within each and every born again child of God, however, the Devil can influence from the outside and reach in a grab the steering wheel of the lives of those who decide to go into his realm. Yes, Drivers, it begins with his influence which comes subtlely through his tools like, music, movies, and the madness that comes to us through the electronic media. While there is good that can be drawn from media, there can be a lot of evil that is blasted at you through the Devil’s wily and wicked influence in music, media and other methods of his madness.
What is it, or better yet, who is it that causes men, women and children to display openly immoral degrees of nudity/nakedness? Who is is that causes men, women and children to commit suicide? Who is it that causes men, women and children to be loners? Who is it that causes men, women and children to wear a “Skull and Crossbones” being fixated with the dark side? Who is that causes men, women and children to listen to the most vile and wicked so-called music which can be clamped to their head almost 24-7? Who causes men, women, and children to have “Shock Therapy” in order to change their obsessive thought patterns? Where do these thought patterns come from? Is it mental illness or simply the Devil assaulting the minds of them which believe not?
Without LABORING the point any further, it is obvious that the Devil has control of those who have not been translated into the Kingdom of God...and he controls many Believers by influence, not possession. And, his influence causes many who have been translated into the Kingdom of God to be his tools by proxy! He controls by degrees and when the unsaved person is ripe for complete possession they are consumed, just like the madman in Mark 5 and the desperate, suicidal loner in that country store in PA those many years ago!! Let’s wake up, Drivers, for there are many out there just like me and worse, exceeding fierce, outcasts, with self-inflicted wounds, morals out of control, desperate, defiant, depressed and really needing the Lord! And, we have the Supernatural Serum, the precious Living Word of God and His Name is Jesus!! He is able to penetrate the hardest heart even if they have all ten of this list of demon-possessed characteristics repeated from yesterday’s message.
1. Exceeding Fierce (Matthew 8:28)
2. Outcast from Society/Loner (Mark 5:2)*
3. Unusual Strength (Mark 5:3, 4)
4. Self-inflicted Wounds (Mark 5:5)*
5. Continual Unrest (Mark 5:5)*
6. Continual Crying/Screaming (Mark 5:5)
7. Depressed/Desperate/Despondent (Mark 5:5)*
8. Attracted/Fixation with Death/Tombs/Suicide (Mark 5:2, 3, 5)*
9. Morals out of Control/Nakedness (Luke 8:27)*
10. Mental/Spiritual Disorder/Split Personality/Schizophrenia (Mark 5:6, 7)*
However, it all begins with the Devil’s D’s and progresses: Discouragement, Depression, Distress, Despondence, Desperation, Defiance, Destruction, Death! Yes, that is his ultimate goal, for suicide today is one of the biggest causes of death in the USA for the Devil is very busy, a lot busier than in New Testament days having more tools, but it is being blamed on man-made ideas. Remember, Brethren, Jesus’ translating power is NEVER limited by the conditions of men, for His Word is all-powerful, He is able to do exceeding abundantly regardless of man’s sinful condition. So, It is for us to proclaim His Word and simply be a witness of what He has done in our lives and: “Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.” (I Peter 3:15). This is one of the primary purposes for the Believer’s existence: Jesus said:“Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you,and ye shall be witnesses unto Me” (Acts 1:8). Therefore, let us simply get on with it, trusting Him by faith, leaning upon Jesus and watch Him work!
