I have been inspired by a post on “Apostle Anthony Berry/A Church Without Walls group page by, Prophet Patricia Simmons, where she speaks about open doors which pertains to our bodies and our spirits. In Matthew 12:45-46, we find the account of an unclean spirit that was cast out of a house (body) and is wandering around with no place to go. The Demon after being “homesick”, he comes back into the house that has been cleansed, garnished and swept and brings in 7 demons more vile than himself. it is these doors that allow unclean spirits to re-enter our bodies. The worst part about it is that we re-open these doers when the Lord has closed them by allowing that same sin to convict us by not forgiving ourselves for the Lord has given us forgiveness for. This is one of the reasons why it is hard for us to come up to the divine calling. This is also one of the places where we can sometimes not trust the Lord to do the work which he has already accomplished; but it never registers because of the constant whispering of Satan and his principality in our ears.
This is a part of that 1 percent that we are responsible for in our relationship with the Lord “trusting him” where we fall short. We are not taught this in the traditional church. It is this one percent that can allow us to find his power that exceeds greatness (Eph. 1) or find our way out of the church because of living a false “Holy Life” wherein the ratio of responsibility and strength is reversed; where the majority of the power we falsely believes comes from us and 1 percent from the Lord. This is so false; The scriptures say nothing about living holy, living the holy life, living right; when we live this way most of the time this is when self-righteousness, and self righteous carnality set in. The scripture speaks of living the godly life (II Tim. 3); we can’t do this without BEING HOLY FOR I AM HOLY (I Pet. 1, Heb.12); When we live the godly life, this is when we receive persecution and the only way that we can survive, and the only way we can be holy is to have Jesus on the inside. This is the same trust that Abraham needed when he entered into Egypt and told his wife Sarai to tell the Egyptians that she was his sister (Gen. 12). At this point, even though Abram trusts God enough to leave his country he has not experienced God as a protector; previously in this same chapter God tells Abram “Whoever blesses thee I will bless, and whoever curses thee I will curse.” So it is so very important for us to learn to trust the Christ inside of us.
