February 2008: Satan wants you to feel unworthy!
Satan works diligently to make the redeemed children of God feel unworthy to enter the presence of their heavenly Father. The goal here is to get you to deny the work of the Christ in your life... these demons are trying to discredit the Blood of Jesus!
Hebrews 10:19-22, "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having a high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water."
This is what makes the teaching, "We're just forgiven sinners!" a true doctrine of demons (see my teaching "Forgiven sinner or saint?"); such theology rises itself against the work that Christ did for us on the cross! The Bible tells us that if a person be in Christ, then they are a NEW CREATURE... born of incorruptible seed and united (made one) with the Holy Spirit! Is that new seed an old sinner? Not at all, and this is why we need to understand the difference between the soul and the spirit of a man. The spirit (the real you) is born again, but the soul (mind, will and emotions) needs to be transformed by the renewing of our minds according to the Word of God (Romans 12:2).
2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
1 Peter 1:23, "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever."
Let me make something very clear... you and I, without the work of Christ, ARE unworthy! But it's the Blood that Christ shed for us that MAKES us worthy, and to claim that we are unworthy when the Blood says we are... is denying the work that Christ did for us on the cross!
