The spirit that DEFILES man

 

Ecclesiastes 7:29

King James Version

29 Lo, 

this only have I found, 

that God hath made man upright; 

but they have sought out many inventions.


The unbeliever is a pawn.

In the grand scheme of things.

Where, he is subject.

To a prince, and a king of the world.

Whom, he willfully, or blindly follows.

For this spirit works in the shadows.

But there is a ONE TRUE KING.

First, let the Bible tell us about a man -- a proud prince -- in the olden days.

Whom God punished.

With great reason.

Ezekiel 28:1-10

King James Version

28 The word of the Lord 

came again unto me, 

saying,

2 Son of man, 

say unto the prince of Tyrus, 

Thus saith the Lord God; 

Because thine heart is lifted up, 

and thou hast said, 

I am a God, 

I sit in the seat of God, 

in the midst of the seas; 

yet thou art a man, 

and not God, 

though thou set thine heart 

as the heart of God:

3 Behold, 

thou art wiser than Daniel;

 there is no secret that they can hide from thee:

4 With thy wisdom 

and with thine understanding 

thou hast gotten thee riches, 

and hast gotten gold and silver 

into thy treasures:

5 By thy great wisdom 

and by thy traffick 

hast thou increased thy riches, 

and thine heart is lifted up 

because of thy riches:

6 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; 

Because thou hast set thine heart 

as the heart of God;

7 Behold, 

therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, 

the terrible of the nations: 

and they shall draw their swords 

against the beauty of thy wisdom, 

and they shall defile thy brightness.

8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, 

and thou shalt die the deaths of them 

that are slain in the midst of the seas.

9 Wilt thou yet say before him 

that slayeth thee, 

I am God? 

but thou shalt be a man, 

and no God, 

in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised 

by the hand of strangers: 

for I have spoken it, 

saith the Lord God.


And now, let the HOLY SPIRIT tell you about the king BEHIND that prince.

Surely, there is a power, behind the prince's power?

And surely, you will be able to identify this proud, perpetual rebel?

Ezekiel 28:11-19

King James Version

11 Moreover the word of the Lord 

came unto me, 

saying,

12 Son of man, 

take up a lamentation 

upon the king of Tyrus, 

and say unto him, 

Thus saith the Lord God; 

Thou sealest up the sum, 

full of wisdom, 

and perfect in beauty.

13 Thou hast been in Eden 

the garden of God; 

every precious stone 

was thy covering

the sardius, 

topaz, 

and the diamond, 

the beryl, 

the onyx, 

and the jasper, 

the sapphire, 

the emerald, 

and the carbuncle, 

and gold: 

the workmanship of thy tabrets 

and of thy pipes 

was prepared in thee 

in the day that thou wast created.

14 Thou art the anointed cherub 

that covereth; 

and I have set thee so: 

thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; 

thou hast walked up and down 

in the midst of the stones of fire.

15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways 

from the day that thou wast created, 

till iniquity was found in thee.

16 By the multitude of thy merchandise 

they have filled the midst of thee 

with violence, 

and thou hast sinned: 

therefore I will cast thee as profane 

out of the mountain of God: 

and I will destroy thee, 

O covering cherub, 

from the midst of the stones of fire.

17 Thine heart was lifted up 

because of thy beauty, 

thou hast corrupted thy wisdom 

by reason of thy brightness: 

I will cast thee to the ground, 

I will lay thee before kings, 

that they may behold thee.

18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries 

by the multitude of thine iniquities, 

by the iniquity of thy traffick; 

therefore will I bring forth a fire 

from the midst of thee, 

it shall devour thee, 

and I will bring thee to ashes 

upon the earth 

in the sight of all them 

that behold thee.

19 All they that know thee among the people 

shall be astonished at thee: 

thou shalt be a terror, 

and never shalt thou be any more.


Now, let me tell you about the ONE TRUE KING.

John 1:29

King James Version

29 The next day John seeth Jesus 

coming unto him, 

and saith, 

Behold the Lamb of God, 

which taketh away the sin of the world.


Revelation 17:14

King James Version

14 These shall make war with the Lamb, 

and the Lamb shall overcome them: 

for he is Lord of lords, 

and King of kings

and they that are with him are called, 

and chosen, 

and faithful.


This is a spiritual battle.

Who do you serve?
