I sometimes run into people who are starting to see a little of the spiritual deception in this life. It often reminds me of how I was when spiritual reality started to set in. I found myself obsessed with wanting to know more and more and more. The more I dug, the more things I found. Many times as soon as I thought I had figured everything out, something else more deep and more intriguing came to my attention. After 20 years plus of digging in the rabbit hole, searching, deciphering, discerning, researching, I have come to a conclusion. The rabbit hole ends at the return of Jesus Christ. As long as we live this life we will never be able to figure out darkness to a complete and final end. From false religions, cults, black magic, antichrists, false revivals, bankers elite, fraternal orders, entertainment idols, government conspiracy, fallen angels, Jezebels spirits…each can take a lifetime to study. As I minister to different people in different places I have to examine where all this info falls into place. The exposing of the rabbit hole is good as long as it works to build and strengthen the Body of Christ. The question is a what point do we go from useful and effective information to the satisfaction of wanting to know more for the sake of wanting to know more. One thing that I teach regularly in ministry service is “knowledge is good, but application is better”. We can sit around and talk about Satan and his works, but knowing what he is doing takes second place to doing something about it. The bible is clear the only way to make the devil run is to resist him. Resistance becomes futile when you don’t know your enemy and more so when you know and yet do not fight or do not know how to use your knowledge to fight. The bible talks about people that are forever learning and yet never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. The knowledge of the truth is obtained through application. In James 2:19-20 it says “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”. The focus on raw knowledge can keep you in a deadness in the spirit realm. I certainly believe that it is the flesh that keeps us searching for more and more information, yet never seeing the fruits that the information might bear in our lives. Knowledge without the Holy Spirit is useless. Knowledge with the Holy Spirit births application and manifestation in our lives. I would encourage anyone who is searching truth to examine how this truth can bless you and others in life.
