Sermon of the week

The maid


"16 it Happened that as we walked to the place of prayer, we met a servant girl possessed by the spirit of a fortuneteller, who through the prophecy bring more revenue to their masters.
17 following Paul and us, and cried, saying, "These men are servants of the most high God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation."
18 and This did she many days. Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit: "in the Name of Jesus Christ I command you to get out of it". And he came out the same hour.
19 and when her masters saw that the hope disappeared of their income, they caught Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace before the rulers.
20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, "These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city
21 and teach customs, which we are Romans, we should not accept or practice".
22 the crowd rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, commanded to beat them
23 and, having struck them many blows, they threw them into prison and ordered the prison guards to guard them tightly.
24 having Received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison and made their feet fast in the stocks.
25 About midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.
26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, which shook the foundations of the prison; and immediately all the doors were opened and all their chains fell off." Acts 16:16-26.
   An amazing event happened in the life of Paul and Silas when they were in the city of Thyatira.  And I want to draw attention not only to the miracle of deliverance through prayer, but also the reason why Paul and Silas were in prison.
   Namely, to draw attention, first, to the maid that followed them and what she was saying.
   First of all, the maid was sorceress, a man who made some magic, or rather: very prophetic and predictive validity. And, of course, we must wonder: where did she get these abilities? And this is   God? Read from the book of Deuteronomy:
"When you come into the land which the Lord gives you your God, then do not learn to do after the abominations of those did these Nations: should not be have you any one that maketh his son or his daughter through fire, a soothsayer, a fortuneteller, soothsayer, sorcerer, Charmer, calling spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer of the dead; for it is abomination unto the Lord whosoever doeth this, and for these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Be blameless before the Lord your God;" Toros.18:9-13.
   Scripture soothsaying as well, and conductive son or daughter through the fire, divination, foroactivo, witchcraft, Batello, magic, summoning of spirits and the questioning of the dead unequivocally condemned, " For it is abomination unto the Lord, whosoever it."
   In other words, the source of these actions comes from the dark, occult forces. Communication with them is very dangerous. Wicked catches simple, gullible people in their curiosity, taking advantage of ignorance and not understanding the consequences for all practitioners of the occult. But the consequences will be.
   Moreover, it is noticed that anyone who enjoyed, for example magic, no matter black or white, subsequently such a person is very difficult to understand spiritual truths. Always there are obstacles, up to mental insanity.
   Even more terrible methods with which the devil draws people into the occult. In addition to the curiosity that is inherent in every person, the evil one comes to people in the form of healer, deliverer from all ills, assistant in the acquisition of special capabilities and protector from trouble.
   In any case we must not forget that the evil one will do nothing for so, for the love of man. His goal is to deceive, to seduce and later destroy the human soul.
   And even if someone of good intentions, such as healing or advice, he wanted to get help from supernatural forces, later turns out to be in worse condition.
   The war for the soul of a human is very hard. And, if someone does not believe the Word of God, will fall under the influence of dark forces. While not even noticing the fact. This applies particularly to our near future.
   And, by the way, writing about and warns. To latest time shall that wicked be revealed, which through the false prophet will work miracles and signs in the earth, in imitation of God. But, it will be like a seduction. "And he doeth great wonders so that he maketh fire come down from heaven to earth in front of people. And the miracles was given him to do before the beast, it deceives those living on earth, speaking to living on earth, so they made the image of the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived." Revelation 13:13-14.
   The objective of the action is intended to dwell upon the earth had worshipped the beast and received his mark in their right hand or on his forehead, to his death. Unfortunately, many will fall for the devil's trick.
   Who thinks that Satan cannot do miracles and signs very deeply mistaken. About who and what you are capable of eloquently, again, the Scripture says: " For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who wrought until, until you remove the restraints now. And then shall that wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of His mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming; also, the coming which is after the working of Satan will be with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous in them that perish because they received not the love of truth for their salvation. And for this God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, all will be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness." Fiscal.2:7-12.
   "Of the coming which is after the working of Satan will be with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous in them that perish because they received not the love of truth for their salvation."
   Of course, the devil is capable of miracles, signs, healing, soothsaying.
   Then the question arises: how, then, to learn from God whether a particular prophecy or a miracle? After all, everyone knows that the Lord works miracles on earth, He gives revelation to his followers and healing too. How can you recognize? After all, miracles can be for God's glory and deception, to divert man from the truth.
   Of course, you can recognize from God a miracle or not.
   First. The most simple: by their fruits. We must look at the result. " Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits ye shall know them." Matt. 7:15-16.
   If, say, the prophet said prophecy, but it is not true or the healing that vposledstvii turned around the worst consequences, it is not from God.
   In old Testament time, through Moses, had a similar resolution regarding prophecy: " But the prophet, which shall presume to speak in My name anything I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die“. And if thou say in thine heart, "How shall we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?" If the prophet say the Lord's name, but the word is not fulfilled and not fulfilled, then the Lord hath not spoken this word, but she said that the prophet audacity – don't be afraid." Toros.18:20-22.
   Interesting, but in some cases, when a religious movement has let down its followers with predictions, some people still continue to believe in this doctrine without making any conclusions. How strange human nature is.
   Second. According to the confession. In principle, it is easy to see when you can see the result immediately. And, if a miracle or healing? How can you recognize? Here is a serious test.
First, the passage from the old Testament:
"If there arise among you a prophet or a dreamer of dreams and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, and it will come true the sign or wonder of which he spoke to you, and say, moreover: "let us Go after other gods, which you do not know, and we will serve them" – that does not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for through it's testing the Lord your God, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. The Lord your God, and follow and fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and serve Him, and hold fast to Him. And that prophet or dreamer must be put to death for what he has persuaded you to depart from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the house of bondage, wanting to seduce you from the path commanded you to go the Lord thy God; so shalt thou put evil away from among you." Toros.13:1-5.
   According to the confession. Of such says and the New Testament: " Beloved! Do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. The spirit of God (and the spirit of error) learn: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God, but that spirit of Antichrist whereof you have heard that it is coming and now is already in the world." 1 John.4:1-3.
   If the first is Christ, His doctrine, and where God is glorified, it is from God.
   Third.  Meaning. I think the read context, the most important. In fact, it's the same result, but with a deeper understanding.
   God does not do nothing, without meaning, without any future prospects. God himself is the meaning of it all.
   Read the gospel of John: " In the beginning was the word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. It was in the beginning with God. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that was made." John.1:1-3.
   In the original the Word translated as Logos. Logos in Greek means logic, sense. In other words, this text can be read so: In the beginning was meaning, and meaning was with God, and the meaning was God. He was in the beginning with God. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that was made.
   What is the point? Is a sequence of some action, which is headed by the grace of God that has power and significance in the spiritual world. Because all created for the Glory of God. And if those or other actions of the Lord is glorified and where it is His will, His commandments, which achieved the intended goal, then it makes sense.
   In other words: was there any point in any healing, a miracle or sign. Glorified is God or not? What was the result?
   Pay attention to the words of the servant. And she said: "These men are servants of the most high God, who proclaim to you the way of salvation."
   The servant girl was following Paul and Power, had the ability of prophecy, and it was not from God. What she was doing, knew the people who use its services or not, it was a seduction and, of course, was not good. But despite his practice, surprise the words that she said, " these men are servants of the most high God."
   Interesting, isn't it? Did she say something wrong? Did Paul and Silas are not slaves of the most high God? Did they not proclaim the way of salvation? Why did Paul rebuked? Maybe she tried to make amends? And to work the works of God? Not at all. Having the Spirit of God and the power of the Holy spirit, Paul saw someone hiding there. Just a small detail. After all, the devil is in the details.
   She said that many days, and I think people began to laugh and not to take seriously, what Paul preached and the Power. People probably started saying something like: "And here again are the servants of the most high God!" I admit, I've seen a similar technique. Unfortunately, it works.
   This example is instructive not just for us but is a definite warning against certain methods, which cleverly uses the evil one to stop the preaching of the gospel on earth or mess up a good thing.
   One day the Church decided to hold the preaching of the gospel. Rented a local club and began to invite people to come hear the Word of God, hymns. And, behold, there came two former parishioners of that Church, became bald, stood near the entrance to the club and began to sing all sorts of, like, Christian songs. People, seeing this concert, performed by the bald women in strange attire, of course, wouldn't even enter the room. The result was on the face.
   By the way, one of them very religious active person, decided to attach her husband to spiritual life. Throughout the apartment hung sheets of paper with quotations from the Bible and almost with his fists wanted to force him to go to Church. The result, as it turned out, was the opposite.
   Any good thing can be ruined if you bring it to the point of absurdity. Actually this is a diabolical trick.
   Paul saw who is hiding behind this woman. And, of course, put that end: " Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit: "in the Name of Jesus Christ I command you to get out of it". And the spirit came out that very hour."
   And the spirit came, thus, first, showing the kind of power a servant doing his divination. And secondly, That Paul and Silas stronger one who dominates in this world.
   And, by the way, this can be useful to us. " Children! You are from God and have overcome them, because He Who is in you, than he that is in the world." 1 John.4:4. Moreover, in many situations, God gives each of his followers not only to defend but also to attack the dark force, provided, of course, be filled with the power of the Holy spirit. "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and Scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you;" Luke 10:19.
   The power of prayer is stronger than all the occult rituals, again, if you abide in God and be filled with the power from on high.
   None of the evil eye or spoilage will not work if we are children of God and the Spirit of God dwells in us.
   And the greatest sin that man commits is unbelief in God. When people do not believe in the atoning sacrifice of our Lord and not worship the relic of the Blood of Jesus Christ shed for the sins of the world.
   People who worship demons are characterized by the fact that it is always fanatical to his ideas.  Reaction to the expulsion of the spirit of the prophet was predictable. The people rose up against Paul and Silas.
   I think it is interesting to distinguish who is a man of faith in God, who is a religious fanatic, and who is just a believer.
   God does not approve of religious fanaticism. He chooses those that are reasonably worship Him in spirit and in truth, who sincerely believes and does not make a personal faith in a ridiculous public spectacle. "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." Jn.4:23-24.
   What distinguishes the believer from the unbeliever or "religionists"(religious person)? The believer is the one that leads a normal life, of course, avoiding sin, but the priority in my life giving in the service of and fellowship with God, glorifying Him. God loves sincere and dedicated people, ready for any test. The rest of the believer is a normal person. The Lord is not calling us to asceticism and does not prohibit enjoyment of the world around us (except fasting). We can walk and to the cinema and the theatre, but again, the priority of the Lord and fulfilling His commandments.
   The unbeliever is the one who, leading a certain lifestyle, does not shun any methods in achieving the goal, based on their notions of good and evil; and in whose life there is no element in the worship of God, and the spiritual component is the human aesthetic pleasures (theatre, museums, concerts...).
   And "religious people" are either fanatics, possessed by a demonic spirit, what many do not suspect. They are dangerous because their ideas are willing to commit crimes: robbery, murder, suicide, violence and so on. Either it is the Pharisees who love to appear in front of people for a long time publicly praying or making elaborate religious rituals. By the way, the Pharisees, too, are fanatics, as there can be evil spirits.
   The Apostle Paul saw behind the servant and power of the Holy spirit drove out the unclean from the woman. Of course, their positions easily to a broken world just does not give. Anyone who wants to follow Christ must be ready for any test. " Then said Jesus unto His disciples, if anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me, for whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake shall find it; what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? for the Son of man comes in the glory of His Father with His Angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works." Matt.16:24-27.
   Paul and Silas suffered physically for Christ. And it was natural. The Lord gives everyone his own cross. Exactly the same that you would to carry. To serve God is wonderful. On this earth we are just sojourners, strangers and pilgrims, and beyond the boundary of our reality, forever. And this is always know.

 

   Be blessed!
