BETWEEN MIDNIGHT AND NOON – GOOD AND EVIL
How can you tell the difference between an evil spirit and a good spirit? At first blush it seems an easy task. Not so!
An evil spirit is tricky. It is the same spirit that worked on the mind of Eve, making good seem bad and bad seem good. An evil spirit will make you scared with sad, anxious and angry feelings while at the same time dominating your emotions, anticipating excitement. Whispering, the evil one says, “Go ahead. Eat this fruit. You’ll become just like God!” (Genesis 3:5)
You have a choice!
Vaunting itself as a frolicking angel of fun, he captures your desires, giving you the sense that you are something special. “Satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light.” Even priests, pastors, professors, politicians and others can be suckered in, taking advantage of the vulnerable; “Give me your money and you’ll be healthy, wealthy and wise; “Give me your body, because God is love, isn’t he?”
“It shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. But they’re not getting by with anything. They’ll pay for it in the end.”
2 Corinthians 11:12-15
The true Holy Spirit will indwell when the human heart is offered to God following repentance. Jesus was a human being having been sent as God in the flesh, the Son of God! When Jesus voluntarily died for our sins, arose from the grave and ascended back to Heaven He gave those who hunger to be pure and holy THE COMFORTER, THE HOLY SPIRIT. The Holy Spirit becomes a Guide to your spirit; an Enabler. Therefore, He never forces you into a corner. He is your COMFORTER! He is the One who follows you, loves you, is the “little red light in your soul.” He, the Holy One gives you that clean feeling.
He is the One who tells you the difference between good and evil. As long as you walk in His light, His glory, the joy of the Lord will be your Companion, your Comforter!
