BIBLE In One Year-Day 45 (Friday, February 14, 2014)
Commentary: Lev11-13. God is so concerned about hygiene. As the saying goes “cleanliness is godliness”. Holiness within and without is what God demands from His children. The gospel does not discriminate about what animal to eat or what not to eat for as long as you sanctify it in the name of Jesus Christ. However, if you look critically at these forbidden animals in the Old Testament, they are not really healthy to eat even if they are deliciously prepared. They cause more health problems than the enjoyment derived from them; cholesterol etc. spiritually speaking, they still remain defiling entities and abominable. They represent some specific spirits and demons especially in the dream. They way to apply this abominable animals to our Christian lives is to disallow their spirits to infiltrate our souls. For instance, when you see the chameleon in the dream, it signifies a changing character, deception and slow progress. You need to deal with such spirit prayerfully because it brings about defilement before the Lord and hinders our genuine worship of the Lord. On deliverance ground, we have seen series of manifestations which take the likeness of the spirit of the type of the abominable animals stated in Lev11. Some roar like lions, some swim on the floor as if they are in the waters, some walk like cats and some manifest like a snake. Demons take the likeness of these animals in a man. Once these are noticed, deliverance is inevitable. Deliverance is the children’s bread. As a child of the living God, it is your right. Just as the Holy Spirit works through God’s children for signs and wonders, demons carry out their havocs through possession and oppression. Deliverance changes the rule. Don’t be deceived that Christians cannot have demons, it is possible. Those who go for deliverance are mostly Christians. And the truth is that without being a Christian, there is no deliverance because you must accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior first before you could have the authority to cast out demons, Phil2:10/Mark16:17. Just as physical leprosy are described in Lev13, we have spiritual leprosy. The spiritual leprosy is more dangerous than the physical leprosy. The physical stay in the skin, the spiritual is of the ‘flesh’ (or soul) covered with beautiful looking and elegant dresses. Only Jesus, the High Priest, can look at it critically and cure it with His touch of power. All you have to do is to ask Him to heal you and being a faithful Father, He will, Lk5:12-13.
Luke 5:12-13 “And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.”
Spiritual leprosy causes rejection and disfavor. Anywhere such person goes, people are unwilling to work with such. Spiritual leprosy is basically seen in attitudes and behaviors. But once Jesus moves in, the rule changes; power changes hands. I pray for you that the mark of the blood of Jesus for divine favor and protection to be on you in the name of Jesus. Next mile on the trip is Lev14-16. Keep the fire burning and alive and spread the word of life.
