The Elimination Of False Spiritual Security, Part 3: It’s The Devils World!

August 5, 2013

There’s no middle ground! This world is controlled by the devil (James 4:4; 2 Corinthians 4:4; 1 John 5:19) and his demons, and unless you have the Holy Spirit inside of you, it’s impossible to avoid being deceived or a slave to sin. If you’re not born again, you’re being tricked into serving the devil and doing his work.

If you falsely think you’ve been born again, as millions do, you are a victim of the ultimate deception. The Holy Spirit is the only thing that can give you the discernment needed to realize that this world is controlled by the devil, and all of it’s pressures and ways are counter Biblical. “Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world” Romans 12:2

The TV you can’t stop watching, the coffee you can’t go without, the masturbation you think is ok because you claim “I think of my wife”, the sports teams that you know more about then the Bible, and the lack of conviction you feel for these actions, are all signs that you haven’t been transformed by the Holy Spirit.

The fact that you’re selfish with your time, that you don’t have a drive to read the Bible, that it’s not on your heart to interrupt your precious Sunday (that The Lord has given you) to bring someone to church, that many of the people closest to you, at work, and personally don’t know you’re a Christian, and that you don’t even see these things as problems, is a clear indication that the Holy Spirit isn’t at work inside of you convicting you of this hypocrisy. We all struggle with things like this, but if they’re not sincerely hurting your heart, you should be very concerned about your salvation.

By the end of this article I hope to explain why I see FSS as the most prevalent and powerful hindrance to people finding Christ, following Christ, and to Christ’s church.  I’ll also explain how you can know if you’re Born Again, and why ambiguity in this area is a very serious issue that will result in millions reaching the final judgment and Christ repeating Matthew 7:21-23 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23 Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

Finally I’ll explain what can be done to fight FSS both on a large scale and for the loved ones around you.
