OVERCOMING SATANIC SEDUCTION (2) - 1 TIMOTHY 4:1

Share

 

2. Seduction through sexual immorality: This is the one that is known by many people today, although it is the medium level of satanic seduction. It happens when the devil uses somebody to lure another person to sexual sins. If care is not taken, a child of God can yield to it and do what he/she would not have done ordinarily. Although it has done great damages to God’s people, yet it is still not the highest level of satanic seduction.

3. Seduction through counterfeit breakthrough: The third and the highest level of seduction is when a man is successfully persuaded by the devil to take a road different from one that God has ordained for him. God might be in the process of birthing His will, purpose and plan in a man’s life and the devil just arranges a false promotion to take him away from where God is working in his life. As a son or daughter of destiny, it is something you have to critically guard your heart against. A victim of this type of seduction may have the programme of God for his life suspended for years because of the road that the devil has persuaded him to take and when he comes back, he is in a completely different condition. He may be a highly placed person; but he has lost touch with the eternal counsel of God for his life. You will hear people like that say things like “you know I used to preach the gospel when I was younger.” That is a person that the devil has seduced. He used to serve God, which implies he’s serving something else now. This is the devil’s endgame.

 

PRAYERDear Lord, give me the strength and grace I need to resist every seduction and stay the course of righteousness. Amen!
