Topic: STRANGE SPIRITS
Text: Acts 16:16-18KJV
16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
As we conclude on this topic today, I want to point out two important points of note:
* Don’t be a carrier of strange spirits because it is dangerous as you would be an agent in the hand of the devil to destroy yourself and other people’s lives .
* Beware of anyone who is a carrier of strange spirits because they are agents of deception and destruction in devil’s hand. Rebuke them by the spirit of God when necessary .
When King Saul was afflicted with a strange spirit, David was fully aware as he was sort after to play music to calm down King Saul. David, was very mindful and careful in dealing with Saul, he was always on the alert which was part of the things that help him to escape every attempt of King Saul to kill David.
David knew Saul was an anointed King and so would not lay his hands against Saul in judgement but he was equally conscious that Saul was carrying a strange spirit at that moment, so he (David) was not relaxed, careless or naive each time he was rendering service to King Saul. Beloved, just like David, you need to beware of carrier of strange spirits around you, don’t be ignorant of this strategy of the devil against you, be on the alert and be led by the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:14).
When David, in turn as a King was carrying a strange spirit, after he committed adultery with Urriah’s wife. David got Urriah drunk and pressurised Urriah to go and lay with his wife, so as to cover his sin of impregnating Urriah’s wife. Urriah had the fear of God and would not consent to David’s pressure to have fun when armies of Israel was at war. Urriah was not aware that David, was not at that moment the king David he knew, had Urriah known, he would have been careful and mindful of David’s action towards his life.
The ignorance of Urriah and his commitment to David as a soldier got him executed by king David’s evil plot. Beloved, people can change with time, the person you knew so well before could change due to many factors and so always test all spirits whether they be of God or of the devil so as not to be a victim of carriers of strange spirits. God bless you.
* Father, I will not be a victim of the carriers of strange spirits in Jesus Name.
