Skyline Mandarin has received a series of Sunday teachings that warn us about ways that open the door for the Enemy to come into our lives and homes. You might want to listen to the past few sermons on the Skyline app. Last week, I spoke on the evil of accursed objects. It’s so easy to visit places like Penang, Bali, Bangkok, Phnom Penh or China, and bring back images of religious spirits without even realising it. Buying figurines, statues, paintings, objects with pictures of idols on them, or even sleeping in a hotel room surrounded by carvings and paintings of Balinese spirits open the doors to nightmares, spiritual oppression and sickness. They carry a curse. If you have such objects at home, take authority over them, destroy and burn them! Don’t even covet its gold or silver. Give no foothold to the Enemy.
The word of God warns us: “You shall burn the carved images of their gods with fire… for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house. You shall utterly detest it for it is an accursed thing” (Deut. 7:25-26). Even our family has experienced oppression from such objects in the past until we learned to destroy all these accursed things and take spiritual authority over them. Now we live free! Accursed things include magazines, books, DVDs, images or objects linked to idol worship, horoscopes or fortune telling, occult, horror, pornography, feng shui, etc.
What about other doors? Eating food offered to idols also opens the door to evil spirits. Now, God’s word is clear: “ .. the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons”
(1 Corinthians 10:20). What about consulting mediums, fortune-tellers or feng shui masters? They will ensnare us by their lies, and we will enter into fear and bondage. Be warned: “Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God” (Lev. 19:31). Live your life then with your heart fully open to God but close every door to Satan, even the small ones!
Skyline 中文堂领受了一系列警戒我们不要让敌人进入我们生命门户的主日教导。你有可能也要从Skyline App 聆听前几项证道。上个周末，我说到有关咒诅物的邪恶。我们很容易从一些旅游景点如：槟城、巴厘、曼谷、金边、或中国不经意地带回来一些灵异图像。当我们无意购买了一些塑像、铜像、图像、附有偶像的物品、或甚至到充满巴厘岛灵雕像和图像的酒店住宿，都将会打开恶梦的门窗，使我们的灵遭受压迫与病痛，因它们都带着咒诅。若你家中有这些物品，就必须施行属灵权柄抨击这些咒诅之物，毁灭并焚烧它们！千万不要贪图它们的金银原料，不可留给敌人任何的立足之地。
神提醒我们：“ 他们雕刻的神像，你们要用火焚烧 。。。这原是耶和华 ─ 你神所憎恶的。可憎 的物 ，你不可带进家中。你要十分厌恶，十分憎嫌，因为这是当毁灭的物。”【申命记 7：25-26】我们甚至从家人过去被咒诅物压迫的经历学习到必须毁灭这些咒诅之物并施行属灵权柄抨击它们。现在我们是自由活着的！咒诅物包括有关联祭拜偶像、生肖与星座或算命、神秘物品、恐怖、色情及风水等的有关杂志、书籍、DVD映带、图像或物品。
那么其它的门户呢？ 食用祭拜偶像的食物也会为为邪灵打开门户。现在，神很清楚地告诉我们：“。。外邦人所献的祭是祭鬼，不是祭神。我不愿意你们与鬼相交。”【哥林多前书 10:20】那么询问灵媒，算命师或风水师呢？他们会以谎言和恐惧捆绑我们。注意：“不可偏向那些交鬼的和行巫术的 ；不可求问他们 ， 以致被他们玷污了。我是耶和华 ─ 你们的神 。” 要全心为神活着同时关闭所有撒旦的门，即使是个小漏口！
