|Praying in the Spirit|
A book review was recently sent to me from a friend who thought I might enjoy reading it. The book was about Spiritual Warfare.
Sorry to say that the review was extremely negative. The book was also lop-sided.
The gentleman who wrote the review claimed to be agnostic and was definitely not certain of his relationship with Jesus.
If he wonders about a God, he certainly must not believe in Satan or in Angels, and demons (which are fallen angels.)
Yes, there is a God, angels and angelic beings, also a devil and demons, but I also know that it is NOT spiritually healthy to dwell with your thoughts on devils and demons.
It is better to think on things that are lovely, pure and of good report.
As I read the review, it seemed to me that both men were in left field and neither of them in my opinion had it all together.
This man doing the review was so angry, heated and hostile as he attacked the minister who wrote a book. Interesting how furious this man gets while he delivers his book review.
I am reminded of the verse in Proverbs that says - - -
Proverbs 22:24 - 25 Do not associate with a man given to anger; Or go with a hot-tempered man, or you will learn his ways and find a snare for yourself.
I have found that those who yell and holler to get their point across are probably wrong.
INSTEAD, I find that if I am full of the HOLY SPIRIT, I do not need to worry about the Un-holy kind of spirits.
I do NOT spend my time in “Spiritual Warfare” yet I do believe it is sometimes necessary. I believe in Intercessory prayer, and I practice praying in the Spirit. This will get the job done in most cases. If a prayer for deliverance is needed, then God will direct you in that also.
So what to do? - - For your spiritual health, it is better NOT to follow those who criticize and tear down others.
Read and study the Bible for yourself and see if these things are actually so.
Be filled with the Holy Spirit and you will Not need to Fear Demons.
