Get the Power of Darkness out of the Church

Satan has no power over blood washed believers in Jesus Christ unless they deliberately or ignorantly open doors to him. What are some of these doors that we sometimes open ignorantly?

1. Music

Many honest Christians have opened a door for Satan widely through Music. Music is holy and actually in heaven it never stops playing. Prophet Elisha in 2 Kings Chapter 3 and verse 15 called for a musician that as he plays the harp the hand of Jehovah might come on him.

From Prophet Elisha we deduce that music attracts spiritual influence to the place where the music is played. There are two kinds of spiritual influences that music attracts: Holy Spirit influence and evil spirit influence. Therefore, the kind of music played determines the spiritual influence on a congregation. If the music has its source from the pit of hell or from the underworld, an inclusion of some sweet Christian message will not sanctify it.

Most churches today, that had once wiped out Satan have invited him back in at full throttle through the music they have accepted as Christian gospel music.

2. Emblems

Old Testament emblems have resurfaced in the church today. We are seeing Olive Oil (anointing oil), anointed garments and handkerchiefs, anointed water, etc. These emblems are holy but we need the direction of the Holy Spirit before we can use them. For instance you do not always need to use anointing oil to pray for sick people. However, if the Holy Spirit instructs that’s fine else it becomes idolatry because there is no actual power to heal in the olive oil apart from its medicinal properties.

Jesus did not use emblems all the time. For instance, he did not command every blind person to wash in the pool called Siloam. Not all lepers we asked to jump in river Jordan seven times. Unless the Holy Spirit directs us at certain instances to use emblems, the use of them is idolatrous and opens a great door for Satan to come in the church.

3. Giving to Receive (Spirit of Mammon)

Giving is a holy grace that even Christ Himself encouraged. Nonetheless, giving to receive is idolatrous and it invites the spirit of mammon. This Satanic trap has made many Christ loving people to fall from grace. The spirit of mammon spiders in slowly until its gets you to the point where the love of money influences all you decisions.

Giving influenced by the spirit of seeking the Kingdom of God first will eventually lead to true prosperity. King Solomon loved the LORD; for that reason he sacrificed (1 Kings 3:3). God loved the world; for that reason He gave us Jesus Christ (John 3:16). That’s the rule that leads to abundant life.

Beware of these modern day Idols. You do not need material things to receive a blessing from God. Neither will your works attract Gods attention. Worst still, polluting your environment just grieves the Holy Spirit. However, your worship in spirit and in truth will get all of Gods attention and blessings on you.
