In our Focal Scripture, Jesus came in contact with the man that was afflicted by an unclean spirit. The word ‘unclean’, like we earlier observed, comes from the Greek word ‘akathartos’, which infers using a wrong solution to pollute a pure solution. So for that man who was afflicted, a negative spirit entered into him and existed side by side with the positive traits he had in him. It was a case of negativity existing side by side with the good.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: no longer shall your good exist side by side with the bad. No longer shall negativity exist side by side with your life. No longer shall bad news infiltrate into your good news. No longer shall your life be a mix of the good and the bad. No longer shall the enemy establish negativity to exist side by side with whatever the Lord has planted in you. No longer shall your successes be mixed with failure.
Anyone who met the man with an unclean spirit would probably notice that he was mad, but it wouldn’t really be easy to notice if he was intelligent or resourceful. So the negativity that came into his life overshadowed whatever positive trait he had in him. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every negativity that wants to overshadow the glory of God in your life, I command it to disappear by the fire of God.
If Jesus has redeemed you, then you are redeemed from the curse of having the good existing side by side with the bad. If Jesus has set you free, don’t allow the enemy to build a castle for negativity in your life. Jesus did not set you free so that your good news can be mixed with bad news. Jesus did not redeem you so that your advancement can be mixed with negativity. Your light was never meant to exist with the enemy’s darkness.
No longer shall your good news exist side by side with bad news. No longer shall the enemy mix your heaven’s package with hell’s package.
