Living in this world today is to determine where we will be in eternity. The world today will not last forever. We will not live multiple lives. We have one physical earthly life to decided our eternity for our spiritual life. I have had a sensitivity to this spiritual world as a little girl.
Although I did not understand the spiritual battle, I know something was present. Often a good presence but also an evil presence. The Bible holds the story. Evil wants us to believe we have multiple lives and it’s so hard not to agree with them when they make the case so compelling but Abba says do not marvel (2 Corinthians 11:14). Evil comes to kill, steal, and destroy.
While on my journey to get to the root of my money matters and to stop my cycle of poor life choices, I learned there is a spiritual war raging. But I believe most people have chosen to ignore what’s going on deep within to stop the deception. We focus more on our daily problems as illustrated in the parable of the seeds (Matthew 13). We are led to believe the cares of this world is more important than our spiritual growth and relationship with Yeshua. But I present to you today that what develops in the spiritual realms will manifest themselves in the physical. All it needs is a willing heart and consciousness.
What is loosed in Heaven is loosed on earth (Matthew 18:18). Matthew 18:18 in context is related to confronting a brother or sister in Christ of sin. When I look at this scripture, it lets me know that that sin developed somewhere other than in the physical. Many of us don’t realize that the things that materialize either godly or evil begin in the spiritual and the heart.
Evil plans an attack and uses the desires of our hearts to use us like puppets. Good originates with God, and those who follow his commandments can break free of the evil by a change of heart. Because God is good evil pretends to be good to trick us into following them.
The Spirit of this world uses the money to control people. However, if our hearts are set on things above evil doesn’t have a hold over us. A business that is lead by money will miss the importance of their calling. Seth Godin said, “I don’t believe callings and purposes exist.” I say callings and purposes do not exist outside of God. You see although Seth is not a believer he is a great example of the things that set themselves up against the word of God. Although he is a major “thought leader” he is not a leader that Christ Follower could listen to for advice. Why? Read James 4:4.
Warning Against Idolatry
14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” 17 Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” 18 And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18
