By Festus Ndukwe.
In government, it is only a few that are in top positions that have not bowed themselves to Satan. It is only a few that have not gone to shrines or dined at the cult. That has been Satan’s strategy from history.
God of this world
Since Satan snatched authority from Adam, he has held tight to it and has continued to determine who assumes leadership in the government of nations.
As the god of this world, Satan promised to give Jesus all the kingdoms of this world if He could bow down and worship him. Satan is still giving the same promise to people, even in Church. He does it in a subtle way. He knows Christians who desire positions may not go to shrines in one bush and bow to them, but he will cause them to do it by working on their SELF to bow down at the altar and shrine of SELF in their leaders if they must be appointed in leadership positions.
To be anointed, these ones will warm themselves into the hearts of their leaders. They will do things to court their favour. They will lick their boots by praising and bowing to them. It is the same SELF.
Satan does not mind to have SELF take over from him. Nothing has tampered with his kingdom, even if the church is doing well.
SELF powerless before Satan
Any man that bows at the shrine of SELF because of position will lose power over Satan. The reason is because SELF can never dethrone his master. SELF cannot cast out SELF, and he cannot cast out Satan.
Many, because of fear that they will not be recommended for leadership positions have recoiled from pointing out things that are wrong in Church. So, they get into these leadership positions, and they get caged. How can such people deal with Satan for God?
