A part of living in the endtimes is to hear and recognize the “wake-up”call. God sends out different kinds of alarms. The alarm that every humanbeing is hearing right now is an environmental alarm. None of us in any part of the world could have slept through the recent earthquake alarm that sounded as aresult of the devastation in Japan. We are all thinking, “how can I prepare myself for something like this happening in MY backyard?!”
So we start buying generators, stocking up food, buying Iodine drops and buying water filters.
Then there are “the spiritual alarms” that come upon individuals. As a deliverance counselor, what I have seen God do is release demons of torment upon the deceived, in order to wake them up to the reality that something is most definitely wrong with their “religion.” This is how it works. You attend
church every time the doors are opened. You are tithing your gross income, giving additional offerings and donations, and so you are expecting a financial harvest—the 100 fold return blessing that prosperity preachers have assured you that you will receive for your giving. Yet, you are in the worst financial shape that you have ever been in. The more you give, the less you have, and that’s a fact.
But you keep waiting and you keep lying to yourself and to
others everytime you say “I’m blessed.” Then your car breaks down, your house burns down and you have no insurance. You let your insurance laps in order to
give toward the church’s building fund. Out of nowhere, you are homeless. Youcry, “why Lord, why?” His response?
There are other wake up calls. In my book, “the New Idolatry,” I quote the
late Watchman Nee:
shown to have been so invaded!” (The Spiritual Man 1968)
Therefore, if you are a child of God, and you have been ‘invaded,’ what you need to know is that the enemy could not invade you without your cooperation. And if you have unknowingly been cooperative with the enemy , then God allowed a demon to invade you “for your good.” Once you receive the message of the wake up call, you will be set free.
