How To Rebuke The Devil and Become A Christian
The Devil Is A Liar
Don't Be A Wolf Caught In Sheep's Clothing
Recognizing Satan’s Deceptions
We as a whole and as individuals must rebuke Satan in order to be true Christians. We must rebuke the devil as Jesus did by what He said in Matthew 4:10 .Many of us proclaim to be Christians yet, don’t walk the walk nor talk the talk. When a person decides to walk with God, Satan immediately intervenes. He starts to throw temptations in the path. When that is seen, rebuke must be initiated immediately as well. Make no mistake; Satan’s deceptions are very tricky and slick. It is difficult to recognize his tactics.
Don't Let Satan Show Up In You!
Break Old Habits
We must build strong mentalities and bodies in order to dominate the forces of evil. A strong mind is built by positivity. We must be as positive as possible in order to overturn adversities in our lives. Do we want to be controlled by bad habits of desire and feel like we can’t help or overcome them? No, we must break those habits by rebuking them. How often do you do something and regret it afterwards or even later.
To Please God Is to Please Ourselves
Observing and obeying God’s commandments and instructions shall lead to satisfaction. We shall be relieved of sickness/illness, diseases and pain. It is not a matter of trying to be perfect but a matter of being obedient to His Word, the scriptures and the Holy Spirit whereas being under good control for happiness and success.
The Righteousness Of God
We must operate daily under the auspices of God‘s righteousness and therefore avoiding or minimizing costly mistakes. Priorities must be appropriate. Lives should be lived according to the Will of God or God’s Will. According to God’s Will is the most significant way to live. It is essential for us to do so. We are all products of God’s creation whether we want to believe that or not.
We Have Choices To Make
It is we who decide our fate. If we live according to our own ways then we are choosing to live according to the wiles of Satan. When we rebuke him and choose to live according to the Will of God then we also rebuke sickness/diseases and curses from our bodies and lives.
God Spoke The Universe Into Existence
God said, let there be light and there was light and so forth. We also have the right to speak goodness into existence. If we speak badness then that may come into existence too. Don’t ever say, “I have a headache.” Say, I must find a way to make my aching head go away and it will.
You Can Be Your Worst Enemy
You may have heard that phrase before. Many times, we know not what we do to ourselves. We allow Satan to do we he does to us through the environment, through food and through misunderstanding. The Bible says, “For lack of knowledge we are destroyed. Hosea 4:6 (NIV)
His Thoughts Are Greater Than Our Thoughts
Jesus thinks more of us than we do ourselves. For one thing He thinks way ahead of our time. If we are now Christians then all we need to do is look back and see how far we’ve come. When Jesus sacrificed for us, He knew what He was doing for us at the cross. It is up to us to benefit from that. What we think of something for our benefit, Jesus has thought of something better for us. Living life according the will of God is not easy unless; taken seriously like death.
