(KJV) MAN’S EGO IS THE DEVIL
I felt it was necessary to explain what the EGO of man is, and show you what the scriptures called Mankind’s Ego and the truth is being revealed today, so we will finally be free from it.
The EGO is defined as “A consciousness of Identity, Individuality and a person sense of SELF importance” – An EGO is WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE… now with that in mind. Let me open up some scriptures for you after a brief intro.
The EGO is the FATHER of all LIES. It is a LIE to begin with, for your EGO is not real and does not exist. This is your adversary, your enemy that is trying to devour you. Your EGO is prince of this world (ruler of your lusts). You EGO is the one that condemns you, blames you, and tries to destroy you. YOU EGO will lie to you, steal from you, and ultimately destroy you… IF YOU DON’T RESIST your EGO.
So resist your EGO and your EGO will depart. But be on your guard, because your EGO can come disguised as an ANGEL of LIFE. Your EGO is the one who KILLED your TRUE NATURE (Gods child). Your EGO was a murderer from the BEGINNING. Because when you believed YOUR EGO was YOU, your TRUE NATURE was put to death (killed in your mind-Golgotha).
Those by the way side are they that hear the TRUTH; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe WHO THEY ARE and be saved from WHO THEY THINK THEY ARE.
You can’t hear from God while listening to your Ego. It is impossible to hear the truth, when ruled by the false image that you have believed yourself to be. This is why so many people are torn up inside, this is why Paul wrote in Romans about wanting to do good but doing what he hates.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
You can’t serve two masters.
No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mam-mon.
A house divided will eventually fall, now that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Because the house that many live in today is their EGO. And the Ego has to GO. The reason is simple, one will not listen to the TRUTH if their EGO has them believing they already know all they need to know.
The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.
You ever try sharing the love of God with people who believe in infinite torture? They won’t listen to a word of what you say. Because the lie of the EGO’s in this world is strong. SO MANY people have taught about a place of endless torture for so long, so many believe in this place, the EGO of mankind won’t listen to different. The EGO of man will keep you from hearing the truth, and speaking the truth.
As they went out, behold, they brought to him a DUMB man possessed with a devil. And when the devil was cast out, the DUMB spake; and the multitudes marveled saying, IT WAS NEVER SO SEEN IN ISRAEL.
No one wants to be wrong, many say. Our EGO needs to be fed, it needs to be puffed up constantly. It goes about looking for praise, looking for acceptance, and looking for approval. But this is all vanity, it is a chasing the wind, or as eating dust. You will never grow spiritually or truly benefit by feeding your ego.
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly (lusts) shalt thou go, and dust (lies/imagination) shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
The SERPENT (Carnal EGO of Man) has always been within man. Just as the Brain Stem (Reptilian Brain) has always been within man, controlling his basest desires (fight/flight/lust/rage/etc)
Those who choose the HIGHER WAY, the TRUTH will depart from the evil of the EGO.
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud.
Notice that a HAUGHTY SPIRIT (we know spirits are thoughts)… Haughty THOUGHTS come before a FALL… And who was it that fell again?
And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
Your EGO will lift you up, and then tell you to cast yourself down.
5 And the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. 6 And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. 7 If thou wilt WORSHIP me, all shall be thine.
We saw the temptation of Yashiya in the wilderness. He was TEMPTED, which means to be drawn away by your own lusts.
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
And who does that tempting? Is there a literal snake trying to convince you to listen to lies, OR is it your EGO that does the tempting. And the deceit is so great because YOU THINK THESE THOUGHTS ARE YOUR OWN and you TRUST THEM. But they are NOT YOUR THOUGHTS, they are the LIES of your EGO.
Ye are of your father devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in your him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
The EGO of man will convince you that doing evil is good, and that doing good is evil.
And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him (the TRUTH)
The EGO of man will convince you to follow all sorts of VAIN TRADITIONS and RELIGIOUS nonsense. This only feeds your EGO.
By setting up chairs at service, or helping with parking, or fasting, or celebrating a certain way, dressing a certain way, being a certain way, and more… this is only a sacrifice for your EGO. God has only wanted you to LOVE GOD AND OTHERS!
1 Corinthians 10:20
… But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. (Anyone give up something for lent, or to fast, etc… you sacrificed to appease YOUR EGO, not God)
So how do we beat this DEVIL (EGO)… we need to RESIST our EGO.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
And how do we do that?
Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of devil. (Look up what the armour of God is for more info)
The best way to stand against your EGO is to constantly seek the TRUTH. Pray for the TRUTH. Only act out of true love, and love lifts others it does not tear down. Love does not fight, debate, condemn, cast out, love never fails. There is no fear, worry, or hate in LOVE. If it ain’t LOVE it ain’t GOD, and if it ain’t God it is the Ego of man. Because it is our EGO that sins from the beginning.
1 John 3:8
He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Notice how we differentiate between children of God and children of the EGO.
1 John 3:10
In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
Those Born of God LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Those born of their EGO, hate, hate, hate. Now this doesn’t mean that people who are children of their EGO’S, who think they are their EGO, who are ruled by their EGO don’t believe in God. The EGO is tricky, think about how many claim to believe in God and KILL in the name of God… or so they think.
Their EGO convinced them, that to harm others, to condemn others is what would appease God. In fact, the EGO of man worships a god in its image. The god of the EGO is a scary, vengeful hateful God.
One that will torture you endlessly for not following mankind’s religious ways. THAT’S THE EGO TALKING THERE PEOPLE! The EGO of man will convince people to do all sorts of things to appease their false god, because they are scared of this god as well.
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
Mankind’s EGO is the cause of all suffering in the world. If it is not causing literal suffering, your ego will cast you into an emotional prison for which their seems to be no escape. And worse still the EGO of mankind will punish anyone who doesn’t believe what it believes. This is why we see people being killed in the name of God, or imprisoned, shunned, etc.
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
But the good news is the EGO is eventually destroyed in God’s consuming fire. It is LOVE that draws a multitude to repentance.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.
So hang in there, learn which thoughts to take captive, which to cast away and which to take to heart. God has thoughts of peace for you, the EGO has pride, fear, and worse for you. Choose this day which “God” you will serve.
DON’T FOLLOW YOUR EGO! LEGGO OF YOUR EGO!
ALL PRAISES TO AHAYAH BAHASHAM YASHIYA WA RAWACH!
