Thought for the Day

Psalm 24:3-4; 3    Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? 4    He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;…”

Matthew 12:43-45; 43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.  44Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.  45Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.”

So, you must be careful and:

Ephesians 4:27; 27Neither give place to the devil.” 

Ephesians 6:11; 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” 

James 4:7; 7Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” 

1 Peter 5:8-9; 8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  9Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.”

1 John 4:1-3; 1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.  2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:  3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”

Revelation 14:9-11; 9And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,  10The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:  11And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” 

Revelation 16:14; 14For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
