John was able to become a walking epistle in so that he was so full of the word of God and they could not kill him, so if we fill ourselves with ministration from the world and feed off the table of the prince of the air -contrary to Daniel’s resolution- , we will become walking epistles of darkness and ministers of the same- this is the mark of the beast on the soul. The devil is not after only a section of our soul. In our soul the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness are fighting for FULL possession of our soul. This is why we cannot leave anything to chance. Jesus said, the prince of this world is come and has found NOTHING in me. We cannot decide that we will take a part of the world and leave the other. The scripture says, ‘Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and had become a cage of every unclean bird’. If we give the enemy an inch, he will take a mile. Paul says that to whomever we yield ourselves to obey, we are servants to them- whether obedience unto righteousness or darkness. The aim of the enemy is to put us in the situation that we are satisfied in the state that we are in and think we are all right, but in Revelation the word speaks of the bride who made herself ready and she wore a white robe and even as the lamb of sacrifice there was no spot or blemish. We all need to assess ourselves and decide where it is we want to be at the end of the day. We need to have a vision that we are set on and work towards as even Jesus did as it says in Hebrews 12:2 because the truth is that whatever we sow we will reap and to whatever extent we believe and obey is what will be our end. As the scripture says that one star differs from another in glory. We are such a privileged people to have heard this word, so let us not be like the foolish servant who buried his talent in the ground. Let us yield fruit according to the seed that has been planted in us, the only way we can do that is a total obedience to the spirit of God- thou shalt have no other gods before me.
