Possession has a really bad ring to it, doesn’t it?
However, that is simply due to the fact that we almost always preface possession with demon. This is a bad thing. However, the Holy Spirit is God himself and a gentleman at the very least. This is a spirit you should covet. This is a spirit you want to possess you, to fill you to overflowing.
Maintaining spiritual security
The manner of living this way mimics what we have to do to maintain security on the Web.
We do not listen to anyone we don’t know.
Spiritually, this is incredibly important. Demons lie and pass themselves off as beings of light that we like and want to befriend—much like in an unregulated chat room.
Spiritually trustworthy people are very rare. Be extremely careful who you trust: be they pastor, bishop, evangelist, friend, lover, spouse, child, whomever.
We only accept information from sources we trust.
This goes much further than you might think. Scripture is clear that the world is under the authority of the evil one. This is the spiritual power behind almost all movies, TV shows, music, books, Websites, and so on.
Even the Bible must be read with care. KJV has many archaic words that need careful translating to the modern usage. Gender neutral translations abound, but more common are those written by paternal bigots. I’ll do a list of the versions and link from here if any one is interested.
We never give our password to those who ask.
Our soul, worship, & allegiance: we do not sell our soul to the devil, give allegiance to the enemy, get committed to heathen organizations, and so on. We all work in the world within heathen groups under demonic authority, but we do not have to give them our allegiance, worship, or unqualified support.
We have strong junk filters
We need to learn to recognize junk in the same way we filter junk mail & email. If Jesus is not openly proclaimed as Lord of Lords, both man & God—beware!
We only register on trusted Sites
Be careful of which churches & ministries you get involved with. Many of them are apostate. They do have believers within them, but official policy is commonly anti-scriptural and far outside the normal Christian life.
We need the Holy Spirit
This security itself is impossible without the Holy Spirit. We need to give Him as much authority over us as He will provide. As I mentioned, He is a gentleman and you will need to constantly reaffirm your desire to be under His control. You will need to actively seek a stronger, closer relationship.
If you sense someone or something aggressively demanding access, that’s not the Holy Spirit. He does not do that.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
