DISTRACTION – a thing that prevents someone from giving full attention to something else.
Distraction is not dominion over sin. The various religious methods for victory over sin are nothing more than a distraction from doctrines of demons posed as a preacher of righteousness.
“13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2 Cor. 11:13-15
Distractions do not give the Holy Spirit latitude to superintend the work of God in our heart but does however give satan full access as it is his work we are giving our obedience to as we mind the laws of man for victorious Christian living.
“For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under Grace.” Romans 6:14
It is Grace that dethrones the sin nature and places in our hearts God’s Will and God’s Ways. It is Grace that writes he laws of God on our hearts as the Holy Spirit circumcises without hands. Grace is afforded the Believer by faith in the Cross of Christ…and the Cross of Christ ALONE.
When the Believer looks unto the Finished Word of Christ Jesus for victory over the sin that so easily besets them, we give the Holy Spirit latitude to do that which He is commissioned to do…superintend the work of God and produce fruit unto God in order to glorify God in the Believer’s life.
Look unto the Cross of Christ and don’t allow the evil one to distract you with vain philosophies taught by false teachers and preachers as biblical doctrine. If it’s not pointing you to Jesus Christ and Him crucified, it’s another gospel and another Jesus. Be determined to know nothing else among you save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.
