What's Powering You? Check the Source Often!

 

I have two identical flashlights both working with bright strong beams of light.

I went to check the batteries and one of them the cap that holds the battteries in was stutck, it took a lot of effort to get it off! a battery inside had burst and the acid was all over the inside of the flashlight!

I want you to know that this same flashlight was still putting out a bright beam of light and working perfect from what I could tell on the outside!

Looking inside  revealed the damage which dramatically shorted the life of the flashlight.

What spirit is powering you? The Wrong Spirit can do a lot of damage before we know it!

Starting at Matthew 16:15 it is  revealed to Peter through God that Jesus is the Christ

Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Luke 11: 39 ... make clean the outside of the cup and the platter; but your inward part is full of ravening and wickedness.

2 Corinthians 3:6 ...; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Luke 9:54-56 ..., they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them....

John 13: 27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Matthew 7:20-23 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
