Living in the Kingdom of God
"...Jehoshaphat cried out, and the LORD helped him;..." (II Chronicles 18:31)
You belong to the Kingdom of God. Stay within the bounds of this Kingdom. Do not cross over the boundary and go over into Satan's kingdom. The Word of God is the border of separation between the two kingdoms. Do not cross the Word of God. God has given His angels charge over you to keep you. God preserved Abraham in Egypt and delivered his wife from a life of degradation. Abraham suffered loss in Egypt. After receiving a pure heart and a clean conscience through repentance and faith, some give place to pride when they experience some miracle in answer to prayer. The moment pride comes in, they have crossed over to Satan's kingdom. They no longer regard those who led them to the Lord and those more experienced than themselves. But they come to loss and degradation. Another spirit keeps guiding them. When king Saul would not give heed to the prophet Samuel, God departed from Saul. When Saul began to envy David who feared God, an evil spirit possessed him. Some grow proud and come under the power of evil spirits. Unless such people humble themselves very much, with a teachable spirit, they cannot escape those evil spirits. Jehoshaphat escaped defeat in the battle. But all his sons except the eldest were killed. It is very dangerous to be linked in a marriage relationship with an unrighteous person. They may bring a lot of money but along with that money, Satan enters your house. The curse that is upon their money will enter your house also. Those who want to do God's will alone, regardless of considerations of wealth, education and status will find the hosts of angels of God, descending round about them. "Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is done in heaven." What a great prayer this is!
