“Wherefore be ye not unwise, however understanding what the need of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:17 (KJV)
One of many hallmarks of the final days is deception. So you can’t go away your life to likelihood. You can’t go away your life to chance or assumptions. Within the e-book of Ephesians 1:17-22, apostle Paul personally and passionately prayed and made supplication to God for the church at Ephesus. “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, could give unto you the spirit of knowledge and revelation within the data of him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye could know what’s the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance within the saints, and what’s the exceeding greatness of his energy to us-ward who imagine, in accordance with the working of his mighty energy, which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the lifeless, and set him at his personal proper hand within the heavenly locations, far above all principality, and energy, and may, and dominion, and each title that’s named, not solely on this world, but additionally in that which is to come back: and hath put all issues beneath his toes, and gave him to be the top over all issues to the church.”
In different phrases, apostle Paul desires the church to have a far above mentality in each problem. A far above mentality in each tough state of affairs. A far above mentality that lets you overcome deception.
In response to the e-book of Colossians 3:1: “If ye then be risen with Christ, search these issues that are above, the place Christ sitteth on the suitable hand of God.” Search issues above and never issues beneath. In different phrases, to beat the spirit of deception, don’t go by sight, go by the Spirit. That’s the secret to gaining victory over deception. It is extremely essential, subsequently, that you just operate by religious perception. Apart from religious perception, you can’t go far, you’ll be able to’t go additional, you can’t succeed, and you can’t fulfill the future that God has ordained for you.
