How often do we hear off a pulpit: “a GOOD man will not go to heaven, you can only go to heaven if you have accepted Jesus and confessed Him with your mouth”.
If a GOOD man cannot go to heaven, what does that say for your GOOD DEEDS?
43 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none.
44 “Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order.
45 “Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”
In the above parabel, the man cleans his house (doing a GOOD DEED) but the demon returns and finds it in order and brings back 7 other spirits with him.
If the man had filled his house with GOD’s presence, there would not have been place for the demons to return.
In life, we cannot continue to do GOOD THINGS/DEEDS, we need to do GODLY actions to keep the demonic oppression out of our lives:
Here are some guidelines where to stop doing GOOD, but to start doing GODLY ACTIONS or DEEDS:
27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
28 “bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.
29 “To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.
30 “Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back.
31 “And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.
33 “And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
34 “And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back.
35 “But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.
36 “Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
37 “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
38 “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
Meditate on Matt 5,6,7 for further GODLY ACTIONS.
If you are doing GOOD or the NOTHING action in a situation, you are only delaying or adding to the demonic oppression to come at a later stage. If we do the GODLY action, we are constantly keeping away the negative oppression
Remember: THERE IS NO NEUTRAL IN THE SPIRIT, thus doing NOTHING in a situation is just as good as doing EVIL in a situation, because they both have the same results, the one just SLOWER than the other.
Only doing the GODLY action will bring about a change in the Spirit and in your physical situation.
