The dear Lord, prompted me to write this. The thought came to me last night, before I fell asleep. And so as I write this, I write it to a woman. From woman to woman. But, I know men, can benefit from it as well. For you see, we need to be aware of seducing spirits. That can cause someone to sin.
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (Matthew 7:14 KJV
I am writing this, because Christ is the way, the truth, and life. John 14:6. I am writing it, because you want to find that way. And its not like the world does, where the world promotes sex, and no sense of moral integrity. We have plenty of young kids, who are lost, and do not know the difference. Along with adults. I want to reach someone, here, so they can have a chance in life. Gods way.
In Proverbs 2, of my King James Bible, and I am paraphrasing, it says there is a strange woman, who flatters with her words, but she forsakes the guide of her youth, and she forgets the covenant with her God. That is a seducing spirit.
Well, it does apply to men too. They can be Christian men, but they flatter, with their words and they forget the covenant with God. Men, and women, can be seduced, by adulterous spirits. It can come from anyone.
And please note: This is not to blame anyone, from any sex, but it can come from either a man or a woman, who may have good intentions, but there are seducing spirits. Trying to get any Christian away from God.
But maybe your not a Christian. Maybe your young, and just trying to find your way. Maybe, you did not have a lot of love growing up. Maybe you have issues, just in who you are, and have self-esteem issues. People can influence you, and yes in a bad way.
Self-confident people, can do that. I can relate. I was not always confident, in fact, growing up, that was me. I wanted to be a good girl, and I wanted to serve God, I have always loved the Lord. But I did have self-esteem issues. So, I did not obey God, in many ways.
And bad people, sometimes influenced me. Because I had no confidence. I did not know who I was in Christ. But I do now, and I am grateful. Because I know, I have dodged some things that could have really hurt me.
I want to write to you, to offer some wisdom. Be careful. Be careful, who you meet, and who you, let into your life. You know, sometimes loneliness, can be the stumbling block, to lower our standards. And especially, when you do not know who you are in Christ, the devil can come in.
Be careful, when you are out. Be careful, when you socialize with others. Beware of your surroundings. Be careful what you eat and drink. Right now in the media we are seeing women give an account, of a famous actor, who seduced them with drugs. But what about the woman, who is drugging herself, or drinking, with the crowd. Things can happen. Protect yourself.
Gee, if I could talk to a young girl, and just warn her with Christ’s love, and build her up to tell her who she is in Christ, and protect her, from others. Maybe she could wake up. As I was protected myself, by my good mother. But things happen, if you do not use discernment, and know there are seductive spirits.
It happens, and this is why I want to warn you. I want to plead with you. I want you to see, how precious you are in the sight of God. But you have to protect your spirit. And yes your physical body. You have to be aware of seducing spirits. From men, and women. Not only when it comes to sex, but matters of integrity, honor, and moral judgment.
People, can influence us. And there are false witnesses, who will also lie. Why people can do that and try, to diminish someone, and their reputation is beyond me, but it happens. Remember Joseph who ran from the Pharoh’s wife? Well he avoided the sin, with her, but she still had it in for him, and had him thrown into prison. She lied! Yes there are liars….. But don’t be a part of the devils lies! Watch out for seducing spirits.
I just know there are consequences to sin. And yes, even the appearance of evil. Maybe your not involved in anything. But you are vulnerable.
I know, that the enemy comes to kill, steal, and destroy. So much of our youth, grow up, not knowing this, then they become parents, but they don’t teach their children, the difference, because we see, in society the cycle, of sin, goes on and on, and on, and on. If only God was in each home…….If only Gods ways, were taken to heart, for truth.
Teach your children the ways of the Lord. And your child, will not depart from it. Teach your self, to honor God, and depart from bad influences. Don’t bring strange people into your home. Protect your children. If you are divorced, or just searching for love. Don’t do it the way of the world. Do it Gods way, and let Him bring the right mate. I know….
Protect yourself from seducing spirits. Even from people who come in the name of the Lord, and have ulterior motives. Know who you are in Christ. God says He calls us to be holy, like Him.
People make mistakes, especially when you are young. But repent. Seek God, and live a clean good life. Beware of seducing spirits, even when you are old. Some people, are used by the devil, to stop the plan of God in your life.
The Bible says, the consequences of sin, is death. Well we see it, with abortions, and we see it in sexually transmitted diseases, we see it in broken marriages, and just a sense of how sin hurts any of us.
I don’t know who is reading this. And all I know at this point of my life, I am just so glad, Jesus Christ is my savior.
We don’t always know. We don’t always understand. We may be lonely. We may be broken. But there is a God, and His way, for you and me, by His standards is excellence. Strive for His excellence my friend, and live happily ever after.
I know I am in Christ. But with wisdom, I will depart even sadly, from someone who has seducing spirits about them. Because one can be deceived. I have come to see the signs, the signals from those who do not walk close to Christ.
I don’t want any part of them. I have broken many relationships, and friendships off, for this very reason, if not for one reason or another, but their motive was not of Christ, and the spirit was to seduce to sin, again, not only by sex, but by a lack of moral integrity.
And in conclusion, just know this. God will protect you from someone. He has removed many people from me. But no matter what the devil may say. If you know, what God is doing, don’t fight it. Don’t have a spiritual battle, within yourself.
Understand, God will give you discernment to know someone, when they have a seducing spirit. You might not see it right away, but if you keep yourself safe in the ways of the Lord, you will see the difference. No temptation will hold you, if you stay close to God.
You might even get it confused with love, but love does not seduce. It is holy, as God is holy. I know I married my true love, and He is holy. In our matrimony, we are both holy. And I thank God. This is our secret to true love. Holiness, before marriage. And in the marriage!
No matter what others may think or do, we know the difference. And I suppose this is why I am writing this. Because temptations do come, but you don’t have to be a part of the sin, from seducing spirits.
I pray, you share this with others. It could make a difference in someones life.
Just my thoughts, that He brought to me, but may it bless you, and get you on the right road with Christ. Remember the gate is straight and the way is narrow.
When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life. That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous. For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it. (Proverbs 2:10-22 KJV)
