The fear of death can cause us to go beyond our natural instincts. The threat of harm can bring us to places of utter domination. If we are afraid of death and afraid for the lives of our loved ones we can be controlled. Fear always brings control. The path of fear is a slippery slope to control, it is the way to death.
There is a veil over the nations
Isaiah 25:7,8And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever, The Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from every face and remove the disgrace of His people from the whole earth. For the LORD has spoken.
and it is mind control put in place by sorcery, intimately connected with the spirit of death (Abaddon, or Apollyon)
Revelation 9:11 They were ruled by a king, the angel of the Abyss. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek it is Apollyon.
Our society idolizes death. We worship it through our entertainment, our video games, through wishing harm on someone, through believing the world would be better off without us. We make friends with death when we agree with hopelessness. Without a vision (hope for what God will do), we perish.
Throughout the ages people have gained powers of darkness by bringing others to the point of death. There is a darkness so vile it creates a lust for power by the shedding of innocent blood. That is abhorrent to most people, but this is the way the veil was put in place. This veil holds up the throne of Lucifer on the backs of those who have tasted death at the hands of evil. The enemy always counterfeits the intentions of God into a way he can violate the children of God. We were made to uphold the King of Kings and worship at his throne.
So then, where is the hope?
Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever, The Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from every face and remove the disgrace of His people from the whole earth. For the LORD has spoken.
The day will soon come when Jesus will return and swallow up the veil of mind control and then he will swallow up death forever. If you have noticed a pull towards hopelessness in this time, you have noticed the spirit of death knocking at the door of your mind. TAKE YOUR THOUGHTS CAPTIVE.
2 Corinthians 10:5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Ask the blood of Jesus to cover every open door in your life until the sins can be revealed and repented. Keep your home free from worship of death. Halloween is based on the worship of death. It isn’t a cute little holiday with fun and candy, it is an invitation to death to come take residence in your home, in your soul. Be vigilant. Be aware. Choose thoughts and activities that agree with life.
Sometimes the pain of our past can overwhelm us to the point where we lose track of self, lose track of God and all we can see is that death is the way of escape. This is worship of Apollyon. Jesus is our way of escape, only Jesus. If you find yourself in that pit….just keep breathing. Breathing is a reminder that God himself gave you breath. Breathing is life. When you breathe, you are choosing God, choosing life. Just keep breathing. Your help will come. He is our ever-present help in times of trouble. He is with you, giving you the will to breathe. Breathing is good work for the kingdom.
Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
