WATCH OUT for Satan's Bait!

"When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. Then 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. Then 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." ~ Matthew 12:43-45 KJV (emphasis added)

The enemy's goal is to take total possession of our soul (mind, emotions, will) = Bondage

For many this is a cycle. The battlefield is the mind. His strategically plants seeds and when entertained we come into agreement and it produces a negative emotion.  A verbal or physical reaction is birthed - what you say or do in this state opens the door and gives the enemy legal access.  Repentance, forgiveness and obedience is the key to shut the door! 

He is not limited to using whom ever in your life to bring offense. Yes he will use the most closest to you because they can draw near to you than a stranger and it will wound you emotionally!  He will also deceive you into your will rather than God's and trap you into rebellion. Did you get that?  He get you to exercise your will!

He cunningly tries to lure and trap us with his bait.  Don't be deceived and don't be discouraged! Don't give up! Fight! Put on your armor (read Ephesians 6) and get into spiritual warfare! (A great book to read is "Give it Back" by Kimberly Daniels)

'Transition from being seized to become the seizer' ~ K. D.

God's desire is to extend to you a total release of the locks and chains! Get free and stay free! 

Satan's Bait

by Magdalena Rodriguez

Take heed, your mind at stake
To forsake HIS Name sake
Forced to partake
In the lake lured by Satan's bait.

Confusion; his devious trait
In the mind it originates
Lies he swiftly fabricates
Your Faith, he misappropriates.

Lust; in your eyes he generates
Enticing your heart to fornicate
Justification he insinuates
"Love is about give and take".

Pride; he cleverly creates
In your heart it collaborates
A spirit of division and hate
Your character he eliminates!

Fear and Deception; his bait
Helpless and bound you can't escape
Ensnared; Your soul he undertakes
Death he contemplates!

ARISE! Discern his traits
Your weakness he uses as bait
I implore; don't hesitate
For if you fail to wake
His lake will be your fate!

Therefore, Embrace the Great
The ONE that alleviates
With HIS Mercy and Grace
Your soul HE recuperates

Your destiny; The Heavenly Gates.
