From the study yesterday, we saw that it is the substance of faith that joins a man’s life to the power of God or causes a man to have divine results in his life. This immediately shows us that there are other types of results. These are:
1. Demonic Results
This type of results can come in three ways: sin, crime, and occultism. For instance, there are five friends in the university, a girl and four boys, and they all have cars except one of the boys. The girl among them got her car from her sugar daddy (a boyfriend as old as or even older than her father) in town. One of the boys is a member of a gang that robs, and he bought his car from the proceeds of those crimes. Another of the boys is a fraudster who also bought a car from his fraudulent earnings. Then the fourth one comes from a wealthy family, so, his father bought him a car. Which one of those cars are owned through legitimate means? I hope you agree with me that it is the fourth person’s car.
They all have results of car ownership but the sources of the results are not the same. Then there is the fifth person whose father is dead. He is not a crooked person and he came to church and prayed, “Father, I believe You for a car.” Then, God puts it in the heart of somebody to give him a car. So, there are five different cars but they didn’t come the same way. The fifth one is a divine result. It was not natural, it was not demonic, it was not sinful, and it was not occultism.
Occultism is when somebody joins himself or herself to the devil for help.
If you see the four boys driving their cars on the road, you would think that they are all good boys. Therefore, not all the results in life are the same. You must repent and make a change if you are trafficking in any of these three ways of demonic results.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray for open eyes to discern the offer of the devil in form of sin, crime, and occultism, and I receive the wisdom to profit with the divine in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
