The Devil Was Not Created By God [2]

Friday 24th July 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- Isaiah 14:1-24
Topic:- The Devil Was Not Created By God [2]
Text:- Isaiah 14:12

What left the Lucifer was the Presence of God, not His power. The point is that the “Anointing” in the Bible usually represents two significant things the Spirit of the Lord and His power. Get this.
You can have the power whether you’re holy or not. But to have His Presence or Person of Holy Spirit, your heart must be right with God. Is your heart right with God? Even as a minister of the Gospel, what is your real intent? Or In the demonstration of the Spirit and of power. See 1 Corinthians 2:4.
They are two different things. You can have the power but lack the Spirit. But it is always better to have the Spirit first, before the coming of the power, in that order. See Acts 10:38.
Anointing speaks of empowerment. And God can empower you with His Spirit or even the spirit of any of His servants, as He anointed John the Baptist with the spirit of Elijah. He can anoint you with another’s spirit to enable you fulfil your assignment on earth.
Jesus was very specific about this while addressing His disciples before His return to the Father. He said, “But ye shall receive power, AFTER THAT THE HOLY GHOSTIS COME UPON YOU: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Receiving power before the Holy Ghost is come upon you, or retaining power after the Holy Ghost has left you is a most dangerous position to occupy. Now you can understand why the Devil is so mean and wicked.
He still has the power, but he was pushed out of the Presence of God-the Spirit of God was taken away from him when things went wrong by his own choosing. Yes! This is not to say that some believers who are struggling with sin do not have the presence of God, they may have it, and often feel it whenever they make a conscious comeback to the Lord in tears and repentance expressed through spiritual songs and prayer.
Their heart is right with God, though they do struggle with sin in the flesh in their immaturity, and God is able to balance it all out while He continues to help them to get better through the ministrations of His servants.
How was iniquity or evil created? Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou was upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.” See Ezekiel 28:14.
It feels good to look into the Scriptures with you here, once again! The Lord keep you and preserve you! May He show you kindness and meet your needs according to His riches in glory, through Christ Jesus our Lord!

Prayer Point:- Satan! Devil! No parking in my life, my life is Holy Ghost fire zone, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Happy Weekend!

ALTAR CALL

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
