OUR MISSION IN
THE KINGDOM OF GOD
John S. Torell

A backslidden Christian does not want to attend prayer meetings! Neither does he want to read the Bible, pray for himself or witness to others about Christ. He will lose the joy of the Lord, become angry, cranky, miserable, irritated and heaping criticism on those who are still walking with Christ! Eventually he will drop out of church completely, citing his great excuse: I CANNOT STAND ALL THESE HYPOCRITES IN THE CHURCH, NOT REALIZING THAT HE IS THE BIGGEST HYPOCRITE OF THEM ALL! James 3:8-18
This condition brings great joy to the Devil and all his fallen angels and grief to our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Ghost!
THE SPIRIT OF ERROR I John 4:6
This is a powerful class of demons, and are extremely difficult to detect. They work in secrecy, using a number of other classes of demons to cover them, and making it almost impossible to detect them. "Flying cover" for these evil spirits are religious spirits, spirits of sentimentality, spirits of guilt, spirits of offense, spirits of approval, and spirits of recognition.
OVERCOMING AN ATTITUDE
Before the Army of God can attack the evil forces of the Devil, God’s soldiers must be "cleansed and healed" from their infirmities. This is a mission that Jesus came to start. Luke 4:28-44
If a person does not know that he has a problem, there will be no solutions for him. Luke 4:18-21
