The wicked tenant
Emblems of the wicked tenant
When the tenant came in he replaced all the decorations of the landlord and replaced them with his own. Examples are:
Pride: Undue estimation of oneself. Satan was noted for this and pride is not of God. James 4:6, 10 Pro 15:25. Ask yourself- Am I proud? This can be physical or spiritual.
Hatred: This is synonymous with murder. I John 3:15. The bible says no murderer shall go to heaven.
Lies: Satan is a liar and the father of liars. All liars will go to him. Telling lies on the pulpit during sermon is not exempted. John 8:244. All unrighteousness is sin I John 5:17
Anger: This is also synonymous with madness. Ecc. 7:9; James 1:19-20. Anything done or any word spoken out of anger may be regretted. Love is not easily provoked!
Others: These include fornication and adultery, malice, disobedience, gossiping, craftiness, witchcraft and other sinful acts mentioned in Galatians 5:19. Are you harbouring any of the emblems of this wicked tenant? Note that all sinners belong to satan and all his possessions will be taken to him in hell. I John 3:8; Rev. 21:8
Unwanted Emblems: Apart from the emblems one allow in his life, there are others not wanted eg sickness, demonic attacks, barrenness, etc. All these too can be ejected by the almighty power.
