I am asking you today, “Even demons believe, so is it enough to believe?” I have tackled this question before, and the response was sort of mixed. Some tapped into the heart of the message, while others took offense by the question. Where do you stand? And why?
James, the earthly brother of Jesus Christ, and a major leader in the Church of Jerusalem writes to us in His book in James 2:19 from the New Living Translation this thought-provoking statement. “You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.”
And may I stir up your thoughts to consider the following, these demons before they fell with lucifer were created as angels, Godly and good in nature. They were in the presence of God, and yet, they joined in a rebellion to try to overthrow God. They didn’t have to go through the process of believing then seeing the miraculous for they were created seeing and believing God and His marvelous ways. So, I ask you again, “Is it enough to believe?” Or is it possible that there was and is something faulty with their beliefs? The obvious answer to this latter question is a great big, “YES!”.
Let’s allow ourselves to delve into this even farther and dig up truth. They saw with their own eyes, the Living God, and they personally witnessed time and time again, the miraculous power of God’s creation. And yet, they were blind to His glory, His holiness, His utter righteousness. They took His supremacy for granted, they trampled upon His authority, thinking that their ways were higher than His ways. They bowed and pledged allegiance to the father of all lies, the devil himself. They forsook His goodness, His boundaries, and His love. And because of their poor decisions they missed out, and followed the voice of deception, even though they believed there was a God, and could testify (if they wanted to) of His loving awesomeness to all. And there are consequences to their wrongful behavior–eternal damnation.
Oh, Father God,
May I not be amongst the deceived in these latter days. But may I go beyond the realm of just believing and take it a step farther into the realm of acting upon that belief, and actually live out Your Word, and Your ways for Your glory in my life today, tomorrow, and until the time of stepping into my eternal destiny.
Holy Spirit, I reverence Your counsel. And I surrender to Your guiding ways through the tribulation and turmoil of these latter days. Help me to be on the alert against a spirit of deception, and the pitfalls of this world, and its ungodly ways.
Jesus, not only do I believe in You, I desire a deep relationship with You, and to live according to Your Word. In Your precious name, I pray, amen.
