Mark Day 8
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand. Mark 3:24-25
Beware of names and labels, those who use them are usually hypocrites. The child of God does not need them, only love matters. But the hypocrisy of hell issues names and labels constantly. The rule of hell cannot stand before the reign of Christ and so the next best thing is to label good as evil and right as wrong. The enemy binds up the strength of a man through names and labels. If we believe them, we will tie ourselves up for the enemy. The scribes labeled Jesus the healer the devil who hurts. Their hypocrisy was stunning. A man nor a kingdom can stand if they work against themselves. But hell does not fear hypocrisy, after all the goal is death, not life. Hell has no problem with deception, in fact, it thrives on it. When we let names and labels live in the mind of our heart, we bind the love and light of God from working in our spirit. Honesty, not hypocrisy, sets us free to live in the power and promises of God. Do not let the hypocrisy of hell deceive and divide your heart, you won’t be able to stand against the efforts of hell. Where there is agreement with God there is the authority of God to conquer the names, labels, and efforts of hell to bring death.
