The Enemy is like a fisherman, when a fisherman goes fishing he puts the bait on the hook throws it in the water, and waits for a fish to bite. Same with the enemy, the bait is our weakness, anything to drive us back to sin. The enemy throws the bait in the water and waits patiently until we bite and then he reels us in.
A Fish sees something that looks good and tasty but doesn’t know that on the other end of that bait is death. Same for us, the enemy makes sure that bait looks good and innocent but in reality, it’s not. On the other end of that bait are sin and death (Romans 6:23 for the wages of sin is death). That’s why it’s important to read the word of God to know the enemy schemes and it’s important to pray and ask God for the spirit of discernment. It’s important to ask God will this glorify him or stray you away.
The other night I had a dream where I was fighting with someone and we were pulling a book back and forth. The other person got a hold of the book and behind the book was demonic. I ask this person what is this? and the person showed me the front of the book and it was an innocent child’s book. When I woke up and question God what it meant, I automatically thought about a bookstore. When you walk into the book store and go down the book aisle the first thing we see is the cover of the book. What the author and illustrators do is make sure the cover grabs the person’s attention and draws them in. It’s not until you read the book where you realize that the book isn’t what it portrayed itself to be.
The enemy works the same way, just like I said about the bait. It looks good until you bite it. The book looks interesting until you read the chapters and realize it’s not. The enemy game is to make something look so good and fun until you take a bite or read the book. The enemy will place friends, relationships, opportunities, etc that may look good but in reality, it’s not. You see I believe the Lord was showing me the person behind that so call innocent book was the enemy but so many of the believers are blinded and do not have the spirit of discernment to see the person behind the book. That’s why it’s important to acknowledge God in all that you do because only the Lord can foresee what’s on the other side of the door.
The works of the darkness are wicked deeds, armor of light means the 7 pieces of armor. To put on the Lord Jesus Christ is having the mind like Christ, to walk in the commandments etc
It’s very important to read the word of God and to walk in the word of God. Ask God to help you walk in his word if you’re having trouble.
It’s also important to have the 7 pieces of armor to fight the enemy in.
Like Romans 13: 12-14 says cast off the darkness and put on the armor of light and to put on the Lord Jesus Christ because when the devil tried to tempt Jesus, Jesus fought back with the word of God and the devil flee from him.
Stay in prayer and remember to ask God with everything, will this satisfy him or will it stray you away.
