Is the devil happy with your Walk?
The enemy is happy with your daily walk as long as you mind your own business and leave the sinners alone. As long as you go to work and never mention My name, you are pretty safe from his attacks.
He is delighted if you have a temper, one that he can use to scare sinners away with. He gets excited when you are attracted to pornography, because you are a house for his unclean spirits.
If you tell little white lies he smiles, because he knows that your just another one of his kids. “When he speaks a lie, he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it,“ John 8:44.
All those who hold unforgiveness and resentment in their heart put him at ease, because he heard Me say, “if you do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your sins.” He will always give you plenty of reason to hold a grudge, to keep covered in sin and out of the kingdom. He loves it when believers go deep into debt so they cannot seek first My kingdom first. He dances when you blame My Father for your problems.
His goal is to get you to curse Father to His face and he is getting millions to do it! As long as you limit your faith walk and talk to the inside of the four walls of a church building he could care less if you attend 7 days a week. He and his spirits of perversion celebrate wildly at same sex weddings. He can’t wait to see half hearted believers get spit out of My mouth. He drools every time a mother kills her unborn child.
I just thought you should know what it takes to make the opposition happy, and at the same time grieve My Spirit. If you keep ignoring My voice and fill your soul with his tv shows, and music you will live a generally peaceable life. Recreational drugs and alcohol will keep you sedated enough to numb your spiritual senses to where his voice will sound the same as Mine.
This may surprise you, but he is even happy with some sold out believers. That’s right, dedicated believers that are held back and controlled by church leaders with a Jezebel spirit, are causing him to mock Me. This word may not apply to you, but you may know someone who making the devil happy, so please share this with them, for they may not know what they’re doing!
For the rest of you, world changers, keep the devil so angry he froths at the mouth. To do this just continue to “keep my commandments, and you will abide in my love and protection; even as I have kept My Father’s commandments, and abide in his love,” John 15:10. Keep this in mind; “if you abide in Me, and I in you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can you make the devil mad, except ye abide in Me,” John 15:4
Oh and one last thing: “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you can ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you.  This is how My Father is glorified, if you continue to make the devil angry by bearing much fruit; and don’t worry, Satan will know for sure that you are My disciples.  As the Father hath loved Me, so have I loved you: so just continue in My love, John 15:7-9.
The Silent Treatment
Why is it when it comes to the one issue you know I am dealing with, you don’t want to pray about it. You go silent on Me. I’m not your spouse or even human, that you should try to use the silent treatment on Me.
Remember I live inside you and you carry Me with you everywhere you go. I read your thoughts and know the intents of your heart. I know the things your heart clings to for security. You asked Me to be your Lord; remember?
In order to be your Lord, I must be lord of all you own, and consider of any value, and anything your heart clings too. In order to be Lord of something, it must be surrendered to Me.
Never, never, never try to fake it, if I am not Lord of all, admit it, do not lie about it, just keep it, never pretend you have surrendered all, if you know you haven’t. There was “a man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,  and kept back part of the price. His wife was also part of it, and they brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet, pretending it was everything.  But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?  While it was in your possession, was it not your own to do with as you pleased? and after it was sold, wasn’t the money yours? why have you conceived this thing in your heart? You are not lying to men, but unto God.  And Ananias hearing these words fell dead, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.  And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him, Acts 5:1-6.
His wife was buried a few hours later! I know this is not your intent, but just in case you know someone that might be tempted, please warn them, because in the kingdom we take lying seriously!
If you have changed your mind about Me being your Lord, just say so, and I will not keep asking you to surrender. If you still want Me to be your Lord, I will continue to bug you until you have surrendered all! You and I both know what you are loving and holding back, and I want it, because it’s stopping Me from being your Lord! Right now you are putting it out of your mind. Your trying to give Me the silent treatment, because My Spirit just brought it to your mind. If you want power, and you want My life, joy and peace, I must hold the position of your Lord. So tell Me, what stands between us; your home, your spouse, your career, your family, that 6 figure salary, your church, that grudge, that habit, that hobby, oh how about all your training and education making you the best at what you do?
I want it all or nothing, this is a kingdom you are wanting to enter, not a democracy! You know exactly what it is that I’m after. You can swap it for My Lordship right now, or you can continue being miserable, playing church!
I love you, but I will continue to bug you until you surrender all or change your mind about Me being your Lord.
Which will it be?
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both you and your children may live, Deuteronomy 30:19.
