Subject: some questions
Dear Pastor Sheila,
Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ. I have not read all your booklets yet.
Here is only one, later on I will write to you again.
The subjects of demons and liberation from demon's possession is something that I have not been able to comprehend. When Jesus was liberating people from demons, what was it really? The Lord has impressed me with this subjects and I started to look up concerning it, but still I am not quite sure about it.
PASTOR SHEILA: Demons are the spiritual offspring of our soul (personality) and Leviathan, the pride of our fallen mind (old man).
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.KJV
Everything in this world is a visible expression of a spiritual reality. human sexual intercourse is the visible expression of the spiritual intercourse of the mind that takes place in all fallen humanity. For this reason, we are given the Mind of Christ, so that we might marry the Lord Jesus and have spiritual intercourse of the mind with Him.
2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. KJV
For this reason, we must not only marry the Lord Jesus, but we must also slay our carnal mind (old man).
God bless you.
