Dead Man Walking


Ephesians 2:1-3

"And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others."

I was once a dead man walking, although I didn't know it at the time because my mind was darkened, my heart was hard and my eyes were blind. I was fulfilling the desires of my flesh and being controlled by demonic spirits and doing the works of Satan.

Over the past few years the Lord has shown me just how sick and depraved I was. But by His great love, mercy and power, I was delivered from many demonic spirits, strongholds, physical illness, and darkness of the flesh. If the Lord would not have used my wife over six years ago to shine His wonderful light upon me I would have probably died in a lost condition, thinking I would be saved.

1st Corinthians 6:9-11

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God."

Do not be deceived, if you are committing sinful acts and fulfilling the desires of your flesh and mind, you will not inherit the kingdom of God. And if you are a follower of Jesus and continue to sin without truly repenting and living your life as an obedient disciple of Christ, you will be cast into outer darkness as an unprofitable servant.

In Jesus,
