I told a colleague last week that he had a "rocking" relationship with his demons. As a person who is proudly sealed and raptured, he was dismayed and flabbergasted at the comment. The reason I said this is that a demon told him to confess something that the demon hoped would be confessed in plain English, for all to hear. The demon, no doubt, was looking forward to hearing the excruciating details. My colleague promptly interrupted our conversation in order to heed the demon's call to confession.
I wondered what would happen if he promptly interrupted his life in order to heed every call of the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God. Today, at this late stage, there are many who still rely on their spirit guides, or who fondly recall the interaction, including the speed and the excitement with which they obeyed every command, and heeded every recommendation of the spirit guide.
Every recommendation was as a yellow brick road to eternal damnation. Every recommendation led, surreptitiously, toward death. The devil knows that if he keeps you happy as you traverse that yellow brick road to hell, you may never stop to take stock of where you are. You may never know that you took the wrong path, until you arrive safely in hell. You may never know.
