What changed angels into demons? The simple answer is Pride! [Revelation 12:7-9]. Our commander in chief Jesus Christ [Yeshua] warns – pride an evil deed comes from within and defiles a person [Mark 7:20-23]. Pride is the number one secret weapon the enemy uses to trap us to himself so able to bring afflictions and setbacks into our lives.
I learnt in the Army that, when a soldier shows disobedience, arrogance or pride, it affects the whole team within (morale) ; on most occasions, not only do the culprit gets punished but the whole squadron (team) gets some form of disciplinary action to enforce command and control. Your afflictions does not only affect you but the closest people around you- especially your family (please take a moment and reflect).
You can never win your battles with pride ; because you create a barrier between yourself and our Lord God [Adonai]. If you aware or been told you have pride, repentance is the key to your breakthrough, or you will end up talking to yourself when you pray -starve yourself for nothing when you fast. Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall [Proverbs 16:18]; one of the deep secrets why you find it difficult to ‘navigate’ yourself from afflictions or setbacks – there’s lack of direction, no leader, no power and authority from Yeshua your sword for your spiritual battles.
Pride is a spiritual entity that connects you with darkness – When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom [Proverbs 11:2] ; from the ‘ horses mouth’ the commander in chief HIMSELF said “For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. [Matthew 23:12].
”Pride will connect you to the enemy, but humility will make you an angel- a soldier of Christ” – Raphael Rabbi [RR].
Pray with me brothers and sisters – so Yeshua will give us the grace to be humble, understand HIS commands and be broken away from the power of pride in our lives – Amen
