Sometimes the devil we're facing is in plain sight, and other times, it's in the details.
1 Peter 4:12-13 shows us that what we're going through is meant to make us better and stronger. We don't have any power to take and put anything in our own hands. Our inability to trust YAH is allowing us to fall for the same tests.
Who is actually being the devil?
Proverbs 3:1-6 shows us that the laws and commandments are to help direct us on the righteous path that YAH wants for us. YAH wants peace for us! How many laws and commandments were you breaking to try and gain your version of happiness and peace? Mercy is patience; you have to have patience! We want what we want when we want it. Like bratty kids. And most times, it doesn't even matter what the outcome is. Some of us go into things knowing that the outcome is going to be bad for us. We have to be honest with ourselves. Wear truth so that you won't be a person that's going to believe a lie.
2 Thessalonians 2:8-13 shows that you have revealed yourself to be wicked and an adversary of YAH when you were trying to live according to your will. You were just following behind the satans of the world. You don't want to admit that you're wrong, so you just stay the course of wickedness in delusion. Sometimes it's better for you to just stop what you're doing. You have to love the truth so that you might be saved. Here's the devil in the details: The whole time what you were having trouble with was the test; and when you failed the test, you revealed yourself to be rebellious. As a result, YAH will send an evil spirit (strong delusion) against you. At this point, you can't be mad at an evil spirit for doing its job. The Most High will make whatever you used to give yourself power the power to destroy you.
Remember: The truth didn't come to you because you did something special. He put the truth there to wake you up for whatever His will is.
Continuing in Proverbs, we learn that trying to do whatever you're trying to do to manipulate an outcome for yourself that YAH doesn't want for you is tantamount to witchcraft. What does YAH want for you? This is what we have to start examining. The tests that are in front of you are leading you to a better place than what you were trying to get for yourself. When you focus on your own path instead of allowing YAH to lead you on your path, He will start pulling things away from you. Just surrender to YAH! Everything you worked for in the path that you were trying to obtain has to be dismantled. You have to get on the path YAH wants for you. On your path, you're going to have trials. YAH will put those trials in front of you so that you can be tested.
We have to examine the reality of what's been really destroying us individually and as a Nation.
Was it demons / the devil or your disobedience that was destroying you?
What's the definition of "a devil?" Don't you become an adversary of YAH if He has a will for you, but you're trying to do your own will? Matthew 16:20-23 shows that Peter wanted something other than what YAH wanted for christ. What is being a Satan? An adversary of YAH and His will. When you are being an adversary of YAH's will for you, you are being a Satan.
21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
1 Samuel 15:23 tells us that rebellion is seen the same as witchcraft to YAH. So don't be a witch!
“For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.”
In Isaiah 45:4-7, we see that we've been surnamed; we carry YAH's name. When we do something rebellious, we put shame on YAH's name. When we carry YAH's name into a disrespectful situation, this makes us adversaries of YAH, then an evil spirit gets sent against us. YAH sent evil against us because we were the devil the whole time. If you're really standing on the side of YAH, there's nothing that you should be worried about. You don't want to know YAH, which is the truth.
Adam and Eve fell the same test. Genesis 3:1 shows that the serpent was the most subtle creature YAH created. Subtle means difficult to understand or perceive, obscure, illusive, discreet, and cunning. Adam and Eve were being adversaries of YAH. And they failed the test that YAH sent to them in the form of the serpent. The serpent was a cunning spirit sent against Adam and Eve due to them trying to outsmart YAH and wanting to be as YAH.
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
2 Chronicles 18:18-21 shows another example of YAH sending an evil spirit to fulfill His will. YAH's will was that King Ahab would fall. The Most High is sitting with His hosts and sending spirits on those who are wicked. Why play games with YAH by trying to uphold an image of the beast?
Do you think you can walk into the Kingdom of YAH looking like the beast? YAH is destroying this whole world and look at the images they portray. Make sure you're not portraying an image that's going to get destroyed. Stop doing things in your life now that you know won't be done in the Kingdom of YAH. Do you really think you're going to be saved? Is what's killing you going to be in the Kingdom of YAH?
James 4:4 offers a word of advice on following after this world.
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
The judgment is either eternal life or eternal death. Don't be found as an adversary of YAH. Isaiah 1:21-26 shows that YAH has to avenge Himself of His enemies (using an evil spirit), then we're going to start seeing Zion reemerge as the faithful city. This is what we're trying to do as a Nation of people.
2 Timothy 3:1-9 displays that if you're portraying any of these people that have this type of image, you're getting destroyed with them. Stop upholding the image of the beast; these caricatures have been used over time to destroy us. As a child of YAH, who are you emulating? Because if it's the wrong image, it might get you destroyed.
As a Nation, we know for sure that we have been adversaries of YAH - the proof is the curses of Deuteronomy 28. We caused the curses to happen against us because we were being adversaries of YAH. The Most High did all of these things because of our actions. There are nations of people that have been used to destroy Yisrael for her disobedience. Our role as Yisrael is to serve YAH with our whole hearts and souls - that's why He made us. We went against that, which made us adversaries of Him, and then He sent evil spirits and other devils against us.
If you're being a devil, your punishment is becoming a target for evil spirits. And if you're being a Satan, then just be honest with yourself.
What is going to happen to these nations that were sent against Yisrael, and how did they hide themselves in plain sight? Isaiah 14:1-17 shows that the ones who are the dominant society will be the servants. The kings of the earth will be judged for what they've done. Lucifer means light-bearer or bringer of light. Have the kings of the nations brought any light to the world?
2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.
9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
Evil spirits are sent to you by YAH because you were being a devil. The devil that's in your life is there to test you and you shouldn't think that's strange. It happened to Adam and Eve. Are you better than them? They were made perfect.
Whatever you're doing now that you know is not going to be in the Kingdom of YAH, you need to stop. Stop perpetuating and promoting the image of the beast. Are you living your life for the will of YAH? If you haven't, then you really are the devil.
