Closing All Doors to the Evil One
3 You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.
Ex 20:3-6 (NKJV)
That scripture is one that should keep any father that’s a believer or keep him focused to walk in the Light of God’s Word. That’s to stay out of sin and the way’s of the world, because it not only affects you but your children-your bloodline. You can open up the door for the destroyer to come in and cause untold damage to your children. He can cause sickness, diseases, demonic behavior, accidents, anything and everything bad. We all know and should want to walk with the Lord and keep His commandments because of our love for Him. Now obedience has a blessing, because as the head of the family my prayers protect my children. They may not be walking closely in the things of God but my authority places protection over them to a great extent. I believe that runs until they marry and the son becomes the head of his household and the daughter comes under her husband. Now they still have to grow in the Word and do what it says because the enemy is constantly looking for whom he may devour, but the Lord has placed the man as the watchman over his family. The mother is the next in line of authority and if the only parent she’s the head.
It’s always a good time to take inventory of our lives and kick the devil out of them. You can simply ask the Holy Spirit if there’s any area in your life that you may have opened a door for the enemy to come in. When He reveals it to you, Repent and bind the devil according to Matthew 18:18, in Jesus name and cancel his operations immediately then release the Blood of Jesus and the angels of God to stand guard over you and your family. Now! Keep the door Shut! Shalom –BTTIZ
