Sometimes the movies and shows we watch give us more accurate revelation about the demonic realm than church on Sundays. Unfortunate, kinda, but true. Only kinda unfortunate because although church is supposed to inform and equip us, God provides other avenues for us to gain the revelation we need not to be devoured every time we turn around. He's always for us.
So ... I watched this show a while back and this man was in a Catholic confessional saying he'd done unspeakable things. The listener tried to offer comfort, and the man replied, "We opened a dark door and the devil stepped in."
I've heard that type of true wisdom being taught from the pulpit one time that I can remember. It was from Bill Johnson and he was sharing how when the U.S. Supreme Court allowed same-sex marriage, that a new demonic structure was installed over this nation and we're all (The U.S.) in a new covenant with them because we (meaning The Body) sat back and let it happen. Have you ever heard a sermon about our sins (of co- or omission) opening doors to the devil? I'm curious. I rarely hear sermons about specific sins and consequences being named.
I'm gonna keep writing and saying this until people start believing it: Every time we step outside of God's original design, we enter into covenant with the demonic. Every time. There's no, 'I'm gonna sin this time and ask forgiveness and get off free.' Wrong. In the spiritual realm, too often the contract gets signed as soon as you agree in your mind (see Matthew 5:21-22; 27-28 and download that free teaching above, it'll bless you). If you do it once, they've only got you. But if you repeat the sin, they have legal right to claim your future generations. It ain't worth it. Believe me. I've been cleansing my family line all year and I've only fully been delivered in one area. It's. Not. Worth it.
Back to Hollywood giving us much-needed revelation. This is a totally sinful show that brought us The Gospel Truth about how we open doors to the demonic through sin and we still don't hardly believe it. I'm assuming it was made by sinners for sinners and profit, but there could be some believers that worked on it, too. Some who are stealth because that's God's plan and others because they're too chicken to speak up about their faith (is that really faith?). Either way the statement is advertisement for the devil to those who are perishing, revelation and confirmation for some of us and grace to those Holy Spirit is wooing.
So I pray that all who watch the show see that episode and hear the words deep in their spirits so that they ask the question if it's true that their sin has opened the door to the devil. Even though they may not realize whom they're asking, I pray that He answers each of them in a way they can't deny and that conviction falls so that they begin to seek The One and Only Savior of The World, Yeshua ha'Mashiach.
If you don't mind speaking your agreement, I'd appreciate it.
